The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, Visited a sailing charity in Portsmouth on Friday (May20). Embracing the nautical theme, she chose the 34-year-old’s navy and white outfit from Alexander McQueen featured on-point embellishments , a perfectly on-theme ensemble – a favourite in her wardrobe that she’s worn twice before.Kate looked as elegant as ever in the recycled outfit, paired it with black court shoes and her hair in loose waves.
she wore this particular outfit once in 2011, during a visit to Summerfield Community Centre in Birmingham, and once in 2014 when she visited Bletchley Park.
On Friday, she stopped by the headquarters of 1851 Trust, of which she is Royal Patron, to launch the 1851 Trust’s two flagship sailing projects in partnership with UKSA and the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation.
The Duchess met people involved in the project, which aims to encourage youth from diverse backgrounds to pursue the sport. Kate later opened the new Tech Deck Education Centre, which will allow visitors to witness the construction and ongoing operation of the team’s America’s Cup boats, and learned more about the innovation and technology involved in the sport.
The Duchess of Cambridge is Royal Patron of the 1851 Trust, which is supported by Ben Ainslie Racing, the team to bring the America’s Cup back to where it all began in 1851. The patronage is a fitting choice for the Duchess, who crewed a yacht on a round-the-world trip during her gap year.
