Kate wore this dress to her friend's wedding at the weekend

William carried not one but two umbrellas with which to shelter from the pouring rain gallantly holding one up for his wife, who wore a blue lace dress by Canadian designer Erdem Moralioglu first seen on her visit to Canada last summer.

Pippa wore a hat embroidered with butterflies, by Madeleine Millinery, and a gold sequinned dress.

Kate and William stayed on for lunch the next day, Sunday, the day of their anniversary, before heading back to Wales for a romantic night in. William was due at work on Anglesey today.
