The Duchess of Cambridge hosted her first solo engagement last night, in a stunning Grecian-style grey gown for the charity, ‘In Kind Direct.’ The Telegraph reports Kate filled in for her father-in-law, the Prince of Wales, who was in Riyadh to express his condolences to the Saudi royal family on the death of the Crown Prince Sultan.
Close-range photos of a mysterious line on Kate’s scalp emerged after the event, spurring rumors that the typically low-maintenance duchess was wearing hair extensions. However, the Mirror is reporting the line is a scar from a childhood injury, citing palace sources.
Kate looked striking in the floor-length dress with beaded-strap detailing. The empire waist is slightly different from other formal looks we’ve seen the duchess in, however the silhouette is flattering on her lean figure and may become a new favorite.
