This was Catherine’s third wardrobe change of the day. This time she used the opportunity to wear another sartorial selection recognizing her host country. The Duchess wore a dress by Markus Lupfer, a German-born, London-based designer.

The Triple Pearl and Diamond Spacer bracelet belong to her late Mother-in-law Princess Diana. Diana wore the elegant piece on a number of occasions – most memorably with her Catherine Walker ‘Elvis’ outfit and Cambridge Lovers Knot Tiara.

Today Duchess debuted a new clutch. The Made-in-India clutch is from Anne Grand-Clement. The handmade clutch was described by the designer as:

Each one of my pouches reflects the amazing labour of one embroiderer whose singular skill has been passed down for generations. Using a traditional Beauvais stitch, the embroiderer is seated bending over the loom as if in meditation. Up to 30 hours is needed to complete one pouch.

Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Catherine were all smiles when they arrived in Heidelberg town of Germany that is the oldest city in the country.

The first stop on today’s itinerary was the German Cancer Research Centre.

At the Cancer Centre, they met researchers and visited the stem cell research lab to learn more about the important work being done there.

They were greeted by a huge cheering crowd before the racing match.

Today once again we saw Duke and Duchess in a friendly rivalry when they were in opposing rowing teams in a race with crews drawn from Cambridge and Heidelberg.

As reported in the Express, Kate had jokingly told her crew: “No pressure, but I do want to beat my husband,” before the race and she was given a huge advantage over William after an Olympic gold medalist was chosen to be in her boat.

Prince William and Catherine enjoyed friendly banter with each other. Such moments bring out the happiness they share and the love they have for each other. We have seen such moments in the past also during Canada Tour 2011 and then in Australia- New Zealand in 2014.
