After yesterday’s visit to the school and hospital and the dazzling reception, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended the inaugural Commissioning Parade in Kingston for service personnel across the Caribbean who have completed the Military Academy’s officer training program as the last engagement in Jamaica.
The parade was attended by seventy-nine officers from Jamaica, Antigua, and Barbuda, Barbados, and Guyana St Kitts were in attendance. The Duke of Cambridge was decorated in the No 1 Tropical uniform of the Blues and Royals. It was for the first time we saw the Duke of Cambridge in that uniform.
Encouraging the young graduates, The Duke of Cambridge, an Ex-RAF pilot, said, “You are graduating today as officers into an uncertain world. In your service ahead you will have to contend with climatic, geological, criminal, and wider state and non-state threats to our collective safety, security, and prosperity. You never know how strong you are until being strong is your only choice.”
Then The Duchess of Cambridge presents awards of excellence.
Following today’s parade, the Duke and Duchess traveled in the same open-top Land Rover that transported the Queen and Prince Philip to Jamaica in 1953.
The Duchess of Cambridge was looking very elegant in a white Alexandar McQueen Lace dress. The mid-length lace dress featured a tailored silhouette with a squared neckline, puffed sleeves at the shoulder seams, a center-back vent with a self-belt waistline.
Okay, I cannot be the only person who saw Catherine’s new Alexander McQueen lace dress and also thought of Her Majesty’s iconic white lace dress she wore at a garden party in Australia in 1954? #RoyalTourCaribbean #QueenElizabethII #DuchessOfCambridge pic.twitter.com/gy862NWdFw
