Pregnant Kate Middleton Competes With Prince William in a Hockey Shootout

Posted January 31, 2018

Let me take you back five months ago, to July 2017, when the Internet all but melted down after Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, debuted a new shorter hairstyle.

The Duke and Duchess are only slated to stay in Stockholm until January 31, but they have plenty of events lined up for their visit, including a luncheon with the royal family of Sweden and a formal dinner where they'll meet Swedish celebrities like Alicia Vikander and Stellan Skarsgård.

It was by a big-name: Turkish/Canadian designer Erdem. Kate's silk ensemble featured long sleeves, a floor-length skirt and was adorned with a botanical print.

"Eye-catching", said the tabloid Mirror's headline.

A snap has been doing the rounds of social media reportedly of what's in Kate's hairdresser's beauty bag

Tucker snapped a private Instagram photo of all the loot she's taking to keep Middleton's hair looking picture-perfect on the upcoming royal visit to Norway and Sweden, and that post has obviously since gone viral after one eagle-eyed follower shared it for the larger masses. Whenever the duchess, Prince William, Prince Harry, and (now) Meghan Markle do anything, it's a big deal.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are now undertaking a four day royal tour of Sweden and Norway and began the royal visit in Stockholm this morning.

Middleton kept warm in plunging temperatures in a cosy black shearling coat from Burberry, which was paired with black skinny jeans, sturdy Sorel boots, gloves lined with gray faux fur, and a knitted black-and-white hat.

Then they took a stroll through the cobbled streets and historic squares of Stockholm to the Nobel Museum, where they met with a number of Nobel laureates.

After their introduction to the sport, they headed to the royal palace for a lunch hosted by King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia - and 15 other members of the royal court, including Crown Princess Victoria and her husband Prince Daniel. Sometimes we even see Kate wear a piece that belonged to the late Princess Diana, which is such a sweet tribute.
