  1. Gosh, I really wished the Duchess would wear less faux jewelry! Why wear faux when you can wear real, I say. The dress at the dinner was a very nice silhouette for her. I don’t quite understand the geometric random design in the skirt, but overall she looked very nice. I thought her hair was especially becoming to her. The Polish First Lady looked very nice as well, especially in the morning activities. Prince William must have a closet full of blue suit, right? I can’t remember the last time he wore a different color, other than when he’s attending a black or white tie affair. Good thing this isn’t the 70’s or he’d he wearing a blue tuxedo too! Remember those? And the frilly shirts? Oh, my! Hehehehe…. 🙂
