Kate Wears Libelula to Present Prizes at Polo Match

Duchess Kate made a surprise appearance at Coworth Park today near Ascot to watch Prince William and Prince Harry participate in a charity polo match. It is the second consecutive day the Princes have proved they are dab hands at the sport. Throughout William and Kate's relationship, Kate often attended his polo matches to support him. It's nice to see that tradition continuing on into their marriage.

However today was a little more special with Kate on hand to present prizes with Lupo by her side.

Over 200 special guests were invited including actors Russell Crowe and Tom Hardy to mark the tenth anniversary of the Audi Polo challenge. Funds raised from the event will be used to support Prince Harry's Sentebale charity which helps orphans in Lesotho. 

Coworth Park is a five star retreat set in 240 acres of parkland on the borders of Windsor Great Park. Coworth retains a close affiliation with polo, the season takes place there from April to September annually.

The hotel has a fabulous spa, restaurant and bar. No doubt useful facilities for guests hoping to unwind after a game of polo. It's an incredibly picturesque place isn't it?


The couple share a romantic moment :)

The Royals enjoyed mingling with guests at the exclusive event. Kate did not wear tights today, unusual for her but definitely the right choice with open toed shoes.

The Duchess wore the emerald blue and cream petal print Libelula Rebecca Shirt Dress. (With many thanks to Lara)  The long sleeved, buttoned dress is currently on sale reduced from £290 to £199. The dress is also available in emerald green and black velvet.
