The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge held their first audience at the Buckingham Palace. They met with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy of Ukraine and First Lady Olena Zelenska. Ukrainian President and First Lady are on two days official visit to the UK on October 7 and 8 to sign the Ukrainian-British Political, Free Trade, and Strategic Partnership Agreement.
This was the President’s first Audience with members of the British Royal Family. The Audience took place at Buckingham Palace’s Opulent Throne Room. The President of Ukraine spoke of the importance of the relationship between the two nations and thanked the Royal couple for the warm welcome.
This was the first engagement held at the Buckingham Palace since March this year when the lockdown was announced. The couple held the audience on behalf of Her Majesty The Queen who is currently at Windsor Castle. Due to the Coronavirus, the 94 year’s old Queen has limited her number of engagements.
The engagement is part of the couple’s increasing Royal Profile and shows they are taking more and more work off of from the Queen’s shoulder. Earlier this year, the Royal couple held their first-ever reception at the Buckingham Palace where they welcomed guests from UK-Africa summit. Since becoming a full time, Prince William has proved himself to be a fantastic diplomat with many crucial international visit and his wife is standing by his side while championing the early years’ intervention and Mental Health among many other issues. William and Catherine’s visit to Pakistan in 2019 and Irland tour this year is definitely among the top line.
The Duchess of Cambridge looked regal in a cornflower blue dress. The silhouette of the dress seems like an Emilia Wickstead creation but it has been confirmed that it is not a Wickstead piece. I will update the post once we got any confirmation.
Catherine paired the dress with her Gianvito Rossi’s ‘Gianvito 105’ pumps.
The Duchess of Cambridge teamed up the look with Sapphire and Diamond Diana Earrings.
Another new element of her look was the matching Sapphire and Diamond Pendant necklace. It is believed that the Necklace was part of the same suit from which her Sapphire and Diamond Diana Earrings came. Catherine remodelled the set and gave it her minimal touch.
In other news, The Duke of Cambridge’s much-awaited documentary – ‘Prince William: A Planet For Us All’ aired this Monday. The documentary shows the amazing work of The Duke of Cambridge. It covered two years of him travelling around the UK and to Pakistan and Tanzania as he embarked on a global mission to mobilise action for the natural world. If you missed it, I will keep an eye on a YouTube link. The documentary showed three beautiful pictures of Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. The little Cambridges were enjoying their time outdoors.
Prince George held a spade in his hand and seen helping out with some gardening.
Princess Charlotte is helping to plant a flower

Last weekend, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge released a cute video of the Cambridge trio interviewing the legendary naturalist Sir David Attenborough.
