I can't believe it! The Royal Tour of William, Kate and little Prince George begins in just a few hours!
Until now I haven't really written anything about the Tour, because most information was already widely available on other websites and blogs. But of course I will be following the Duke and Duchess closely the next three weeks, like the rest of you. The next three weeks you can expect regular posts looking forward with a summary of the schedule, the weather and outfit predictions. And of course there will be an awesome replikate contest and giveaway (read more info on that below)!
The next few days: 7-9 April in Wellington (NZ)
In a few hours on Monday 7 April at 11:30, William, Kate and George will arrive at the military terminal of Wellington Airport. Most likely there will be the opportunity to see a little bit of George. After that William and Kate will attend a reception at the Government House, hosted by Governor-General Sir Jerry Mateparae and his wife Janine. There they will also partake in a Maori traditional welcoming ceremony (called a 'Powhiri') and an inspection of the Guard of Honour.
On Tuesday 8 April the Royal party will be recovering from their 25 hour flight (jet lag!) at a private residence.
And then on to the possible outfits Kate might wear. The first few days we won't see a lot of different outfits, but there will be the arrival, and the welcoming reception. Let us first take a look at previous outfits of Kate when she stepped out of a plane.
Based on this, and the precarious weather, I am guessing a knee length dress with half sleeves or long sleeves, probably in blue, black, white or red, and hopefully from a New Zealand designer. For the welcoming reception Kate might wear something similar, but dressier, with lace or embroidery. Below are some dresses that fit that bill and that I REALLY hope we'll see during this tour.
The new outfits available in the Etsy shop
Usually I only list items in the Tatiana's Delights Etsy shop that I already have end result pictures of, but these next three weeks new listings will be added every single day to make it easier to order a replikate of that gorgeous dress or coat worn by Kate during the Royal Tour. So be sure to check out the new additions!
Replikate contest & giveaway!
So obviously we can't let this joyous occasion go by without a giveaway! Well, actually it is more of a contest, because you'll need to do something for it too ;-)
What do to?
To participate, the only thing you need to do is:
The contest will run until the end of the Royal Tour (25 April), after which I will choose the lucky winner among all entries, and the best replikates will be featured in a blog post.
I'm so excited you guys! Aren't you excited? I AM!
