Kate Visits the Dulwich Picture Gallery




After her visit to Olympic Park, Kate travelled to south London where she joined Prince Charles and Camilla on a visit to the Dulwich Picture Gallery. The gallery is one of the country's oldest public art galleries.




The main purpose of the visit was to introduce the Duchess of Cambridge to the work of one of Prince Charles' education charities called The Prince’s Foundation for Children and the Arts.




Upon their arrival, they were greeted by hundreds of cheering schoolchildren waving Union flags.



They watched children painting pictures that will be submitted to the Face Britain project. This will, eventually be combined into a montage image of the Queen that will be projected onto Buckingham Palace as part of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations.



In addition, the art work will also be displayed on 400 big screens in city centres, shopping malls and train stations across the UK.




Kate wore a sophisticated 3/4-sleeved grey dress (fall 2011 collection) by Irish designer Orla Kiely ($250). It had a pleated skirt and black flowers embroidered along the neckline in a necklace-like fashion. She paired it with black suede Episode ‘Angel’ platform heels and a matching clutch.



Kate kept her jewelry choices simple and chose to wear her Links of London Hope Egg earrings, Tiffany Diamonds by the Yard bracelet, and her sapphire and diamond engagement ring.
