The Royal Couple Wrap Up Their Tour with Two More Events

William & Kate wrapped up their trip to Southern California on Sunday by visiting an inner-city school in downtown Los Angeles's notorious Skid Row area and attending a job fair for veterans.

The couple were welcomed to the Inner City Arts academy by six elementary-aged children holding a welcome banner.

Their final stop before departing for the U.K. was with the group ServiceNation: Mission Serve, which aims to help veterans find jobs.

Kate wore a navy-and-white crochet top and an ivory 'Lina Dobby' pleated skirt (£95 and as of this writing only available in a size 16), both by Whistles.

The following description is from 
'Featuring on-trend pleats and a light, feminine ivory tone the Whistles Lina skirt offers a high waist and all over dobby spot print.'

Kate accessorized with her Belle and Mimi Suede Pointed Court Shoe, her ivory moc-croc clutch, sapphire and diamond earrings and her diamond cross pendant necklace.

Kate & William departed aboard a British Airway aircraft from LAX this afternoon. They posed for a few pictures and were then ushered inside.

Update 7/11/11

I had been unable to locate the navy-and-white crochet top seen above that the media has been reporting as being Whistles. I contacted Whistles and asked them for confirmation that this was, indeed their top. This is the response that I received back from them:
'Whistles The crochet top is definitely not Whistles. The Lina double pleat skirt has sold out online but is still available in our stores'
I will continue to do my research and post when I have an update.
