Kate wore a simple blue dress by Rebecca Taylor and a special piece of 'veterans bling', a £15 enamel brooch from the Royal British Legion, sold in aid of veterans, as she and William made their first appointment in another busy day today, attending a reception at Goldsmiths' Hall to celebrate two Army teams who recreated the famous race to the South Pole by adventurers Scott and Amundsen.
Later today, the military theme will continue as they visit the Imperial War Museum to launch a fund-raising campaign to create new galleries displaying exhibits on the First World War in time for the centenary of the outbreak of the conflict in 1914.
After their public duties are over, the young Royals are expected to disappear from view until after their anniversary celebrations. A Royal spokesman today let slip that the couple would spend the eve of their anniversary at a party with friends.
Sixty years and hardly a slip.
