Prince William and his Catherine arrived in Malaysia today where Kate gave a speech in support of a palliative care facility for children. It was an improvement over the first time she spoke in public - click here for a refresher. The pauses between sentences were not so long. Her voice wavered less. She seemed much more relaxed. And perhaps that’s to do with her husband being there for her this time. Come on. That’s the reason we all want to believe, isn’t it?

After that Will and Kate changed into formals for dinner with the King and Queen of Malaysia. The dress is McQueen and it’s embroidered with hibiscus flowers honouring their country. Certainly not my flavour but I get it that at these kinds of events you can’t always go with the most stylish option.
