A fairly sassy new coat for Kate today, and with navy shoes, to boot. Quite tolerable, madam.

The trip to Manchester involved what must have been a touching stop at Francis House, which provides end-of-life care and grief counseling — and which Diana herself opened 25 years ago.

Twitter has noted that Kate’s earrings seem to echo the ones Diana chose. It could be a coincidence, but given how often these two like to dip into the archives, I’m guessing it was no accident. And it’s a nice touch

I love how this photo makes it look like William is unveiling a plaque of his own face (it’s just his reflection).

Fairly sure he called Harry afterward.
