The Duchess of Cambridge visited the Baby Basics Sheffield center, which provides assistance and essentials to families struggling to support their newborns, in a repeat white Suzannah dress she’s previously worn to Wimbledon. Back then, she accessorized with a thin black belt. For this visit, she swapped the belt for a red, green and white floral mask by U.K.-based children’s wear brand Amaia.
Kate’s mask moment was welcomed by royal enthusiasts with open (albeit socially distanced) arms. Elizabeth Holmes, who quite literally wrote the book on royal style, fittingly captioned an Instagram photo she posted of the look, “Kate! Wore! A! Mask!”
Kate has been criticized for not wearing a mask during public appearances, though she and Prince William have maintained distance from people around them.
On Wednesday, Prince William followed suit by wearing a mask during a visit to Shire Hill Care Home in Cardiff, Wales. Though it’s less exciting than Kate’s floral piece, we still have to give props to Will for his efforts. We’re digging the blue and gray vibes and, you know, the safety precaution and consideration for others.
And even though this is how we felt when they took them off ...
... we’re glad to see the royals promote and exhibit good, safe and stylish behavior.
