Kate Middleton And Prince William Kick Off World War I Commemorations In Belgium

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are in Belgium.

Kate Middleton and Prince William have kicked off today’s World War I commemorations in Belgium.

In what will be one of their last public engagements before they go off on a month-long summer holiday to Scotland, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were welcomed to Liege by Belgium’s King Philippe and Queen Mathilde.

Kate, who looked her usual elegant self in a trusty cream coat dress, dusty pink headpiece and pearl drop earrings, also rubbed shoulders with French president François Hollande at the Cointe Inter-allied memorial to mark 100 years since the start of WWI.

Later this afternoon, Kate and Wills will travel to the Belgian city of Mons, where they will be joined by Prince Harry at a reception at Mons Town Hall, before they all attend a commemoration event at Saint Symphorien Military Cemetery.

Tomorrow, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be back in London, where they will visit the Tower of London to continue their tour of remembrance.
