Has it been three weeks already? The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge said their goodbyes in Australia today.
Kate Middleton and Prince William attended the Australian War Memorial in Canberra on Anzac Day, a national day of remembrance that commemorates all Australians and New Zealanders who served and died in war. Kate wore a white and navy stripped coat dress with a matching pill box hat. On her dress, she pinned a red brooch, which was given to her Thursday night. Prince William opted for a blue suit and a red and blue tie.
According to the Daily Mail, the Duchess’ hat was designed by Jonathan Howard. Her heels were Alexander McQueen and her clutch was Russell and Bromley. E! Online reports that her dress was designed by Michael Kors. She looked like perfection during the emotional ceremony — very poised and elegant. Afterwards, she, Prince William and Prince George headed home. We got out last glimpse of Prince George, who was wearing red and white shorts with a matching cardigan, as the family boarded the plane.
A Kensington Palace spokesperson told E! News that the royal family had an extraordinary time while visiting both countries. “The tour of New Zealand and Australia has been an incredible experience for both The Duke and Duchess and the couple really have enjoyed it immensely. We always said this would be an opportunity for the Duke to introduce both countries to the Duchess and Prince George and the couple have been bowled over by the extraordinarily warm welcome shown to them as a family by people everywhere they went.”
We’re a little disappointed that they headed back home so soon… we’re not sure when we’re going to see Prince George’s chubby little cheeks again. Scroll through the slideshow below to see photos from Friday, and be sure to head over to E! News and the Daily Mail for more information.
