Kate Middleton wears Canadian designer Smythe to the Olympics

Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton was watching a cross country equestrian event on day three of the London 2012 Olympic Games, and wearing the same Smythe jacket she wore when she toured Canada last year. Although Kate is known for recycling her wardrobe pieces, a second wear is still a win for Canadian design, since we imagine there isn’t a shortage of navy equestrian-style blazers in the U.K.


    The Duchess of Cambridge when she was a single woman was known as Kate Middleton. She is now married and her name is no longer Kate Middleton. You can call her Kate or the Duchess of Cambridge, or Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge.}But she is no longer Kate Middleton. EH!!!!!!!!!!
