Bloodswept Lands and Seas of Red

Good Morning!
Today, Kate and William joined Harry, visited to Tower of London to view the large exhibit 'Bloodswept Lands and Seas of Red', which is comprised solely of poppies that is flowing down the courtyard of the Tower.

The exhibit is truly amazing; I would recommend seeing it if you can. The exhibit currently consists of 120,000 poppies but will go on to contain 888,246 by Christmas Day to commemorate every fallen British soldier of WWI. The poppies are sale online for 25 pounds a piece, if you are interested.

Back to Kate! She was wearing her beautiful (one of my all time faves) cobalt blue 'Detroit' sheath by L.K. Bennett. It is also available in a light cream shade if you so desire.

 If you remember, she wore this back in February as well:

They walked around the exhibit for a while, and the magnitude of the exhibit seemed to get to Kate:

They also chatted with some Beefeaters and other members of staff:

I love this one!
I think that this dress was fitting for today, because while it was a somber color and pretty simple, it was bright compared to the poppies. I have to admit, when I first saw the dress I thought it was her blue Stella she wore a few days ago and I nearly fell off my chair!
Anyways, I think she looked very pretty in todays pick. While they were in the artificial fields, all three of them bended down to put a flower in to represent a fallen man:

Both these days have been very somber, and I think Kate's first dabbling with the 'real' royal duties. And I think she has done magnificently!

See you soon, hopefully! After this we have no scheduled engagements until the END of September, so lets hope that fills up a bit!
