Duchess Kate and Prince William were at the premiere of Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom when news broke of Mandela’s death December 5, 2013. Attendees were told of the news when the credits rolled after the film. To see William’s statement, click here.
On a lighter note, Kate recycled a dress we previously saw last year when she celebrated William’s birthday at a private party. It’s Roland Mouret, and check out that slit! I love seeing some royal leg. But everybody was buzzing about her necklace: it’s “costume jewelry”, a $35 (!) piece from Zara. I’m just sayin’ that if I had access to the crown jewels, costume jewelry would not be in my vocabulary.
