Wills & Kate Visit Birmingham Area Affected by Riots

Kate looked sophisticated in a military-inspired outfit by Alexander McQueen (Pre-Fall 2011 collection). The outfit, consisted of a £795 cream, silk-georgette blouse tucked into a £580 navy-blue, button-embellished wool-crepe skirt, from the collection designed by Sarah Burton.
