Kate avoids Marilyn-esque mishap

By Tony Jones

The Duchess of Cambridge almost suffered a Marilyn Monroe moment on day two of the royal tour of India.

But a composed Kate swiftly caught the hem of her gown in time to save any embarrassment as she laid a wreath with husband William at India Gate, the country's war memorial.

The Duchess was wearing a £1,760 cream wool crepe mid dress by Emilia Wickstead which featured oversized pockets on the torso and a flared out skirt, with pink Rupert Sanderson court shoes - which she abandoned while walking on grass.

Later, Kate wore a monochrome crop top and skirt by Alice Temperley at a special early birthday party in New Delhi for the Queen, who turns 90 next week. Kate used a sword to cut a birthday cake decorated in the pattern of a Union flag.

Her striking £995 Delphia beaded top and £1,995 ankle length skirt is described by the brand as featuring "opulent embroidery motifs of Indian Chintz and lattice".

Her choice proved a hit with fashion followers on Twitter with WhatWouldKateDo - @WWKD_Official - describing the Duchess as sporting "two stellar looks".
