Commonwealth Games: Part Two

Hello again! Well, aren't we spoiled ~ two appearances in two days! Today the royal trio (Kate, William, and Harry (although my favorite trio is the one that includes George)) were in Glasgow at the Commonwealth Games again! Lots of fun and festivity.

 Kate showed up in her bright blue Stella McCartney 'Ridley' stretch dress, which we have seen her wear on two occasions: one in summer 2012 for an Olympic themed day, and once in Canberra for the exit of the airplane:

And this April in Canberra:

In my opinion, the dress seems a little more fitted the two times after she had George. It still looks great! She has worn this dress two out of the three times to a sporting event, which seems to be a theme with Kate. She coordinates her outfits for the event she is going to and sticks with that arrangement for future wears.
She accessorized with her Stuart Weitzman Wedges (again, a pair of shoes she usually wears to a sporting event):

And, like yesterday, she carried her Russell and Bromley clutch:

She played a South African traditional game, 'Three Tins':

They also played foosball with some Kenyan athletes:

They went to a few sporting matches, as well, and were enthusiastically cheering them on:

Smaller News Items Concerning Kate

Hi! With all the Commonwealth Games excitement going on and my recent vacation, I have not had time to keep up with the lesser news items: here we go!
Kate and William attended the wedding of Alexander Vaulkhard and Sarah Nicholson over the weekend. Pictures can be seen here. She was wearing the Jenny Packham dress she wore in Santa Barbara and to a wedding in the UK:

This is the site of one of my all-time favorite pics of her:

The other small news story is that....George is taking swimming lessons! The trip that was made to Buckingham Palace on his birthday, while it might have been to visit great-grandpa as well, was to take lessons in the private pool with Kate. William said bath time is "quite painful', but I suppose they are getting him started early!

That's all for now, folks! Over and out; see you tomorrow!

LIVE UPDATES: Commonwealth Games

LIVE UPDATES; FOR MORE RECENT PICTURES GO DOWN TO THE PIC OF THE SHOES!
Kate is at the Commonwealth Games today! She, William, and Harry have been there all day, so far attending the gymnastics event and boxing. She is looking very sporty and very Kate-esque in her casual style, with her cork high heels, her skinnies, and her blazer. She is wearing a button-up striped shirt, which although not the one she wore to the Olympic games in 2012, bears a striking resemblance:

She also went to the gymnastics event with William and Harry:

Funniest picture of the day goes to this:

Hi! Sorry for the delay for the rest of the pictures, I had to get out of my hotel and hit the road! So, here we go. I think that Kate looked very elegant today, wearing her Stuart Weitzman Corkswoon Wedges, a popular choice with her.

The blazer she was wearing was Zara, a style she first debuted in April on her Down Under tour.
In addition, she carried her Russell and Bromley 'Muse' clutch, which has been seen on a number of engagements with her Zara skinnies and blazer.

This is an easy outfit for her, she wears it a lot so she can put it on and not be worried about what it will look like. I agree that it would be nice to see her change it up, but she might not be too concerned with those things if she is running around trying to get George his diaper.
They attended boxing, gymnastics, swimming, and hockey, to name a few. William was wearing his go-to Dad jeans, which I think are hilarious:

Kate got fanned by William, as well:

Both of them were in good spirits today, making a few public displays of affection that usually evades them on official duties:

They were seen using a smartphone, which seems to be Kate's. The general consensus seems to be that is it a Samsung Galaxy S5 (talk about product placement!).

The Non-Appleness of it has us Apple lovers disappointed, HOWEVER.....I think I saw an iPhone in her pocket during a casual night out with William to a rugby game (on the tour):

Maybe she has multiple phones so there isn't another phone-hacking scandal like the one that leaked out a few months ago?  Her hair was back to it's glossy best:

As always, Harry is the jokester:

They were handed the Australian team mascot:

As always with sporting events, we got to see the Duchess' expressive face come into play:

I can see how this would be a particularly stressful match to watch, as they were watching boxing:

At the field hockey match, Kate, William, and Harry were joined by Uncle Edward and family (where Kate is particularly expressive, probably because her extensive knowledge and love of the sport):
