The first stop was a Brixton-based youth organization called ELEVATE, which works with young British-Caribbean creative talent.
The pair then went to Waterloo Station to unveil a new monument in tribute to “the Windrush generation” – those Caribbean migrants who arrived in the UK in the late 1940s to rebuild the country after World War II.
Kate looked stunning in an elegant white Alexander McQueen blazer and matching tailored trousers – an outfit she recently wore on a tour in Jamaica.
The blazer costs about $2,400 and the pants about $1050.
The outfit was completed with a Mulberry Amberley bag, valued at about $1420, and Chalk earrings, valued at about $125.
On Thursday, Kate paired her white pantsuit with a white top, but in Jamaica she contrasted it with a dark orange blouse.
Although the Duchess regularly wears expensive designer clothes, she also loves high street brands and regularly recycles her outfits.
She is a devoted supporter of English brands – Alexander McQueen and Mulberry are both well-known English labels.
Even Kate’s earrings brand Chalk is based in London and is handmade by British-Caribbean architect Malaika Carr.
Although Queen Elizabeth was unable to attend the unveiling of the Waterloo Station memorial, she released a statement saying it served as a “appropriate word of thanks to the Windrush pioneers and their descendants, in recognition of the profound contribution they have made.” to the United Kingdom in recent decades.”
Meanwhile, Prince Harry and Meghan’s apparently strained relationship with the rest of the House of Windsor continues to cause a stir, with a royal expert contemplating Harry’s “weird language” during an interview at the Invictus Games.
During the interview, Harry said he was traveling to the UK for the long anniversary weekend to “protect” the Queen.
“I just make sure she’s, you know, protected and has the right people around her,” he said in the interview.
That has disturbed a few springs in the palace, it seems.
“It was kind of bizarre language. He was there to protect the Queen, and these things aren’t going too well,” said Royal correspondent for the mirrorsaid Russell Myers.
“If (the relationship) needs to be restored, then there needs to be some more water under the bridge.”
Myers said the rest of the royal family was still outraged over a controversial interview Harry and Meghan gave to Oprah Winfrey in the US.
“The people I speak to every day at the Palace who are clearly very, very well connected with the top players… they are still absolutely furious.
“You can’t go on, you know, an international television interview with Oprah Winfrey, complaining about your treatment with the family and then wanting to sit down with them while you’re still giving interviews.”
