Kate Middleton, Duchess Of Cambridge Is Chic In Black Dress At Art Unveiling During Royal Tour

The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, made her second public appearance of the day as she and Prince William attended an art unveiling at Government House in Wellington, New Zealand.

Kate opted for a formal black dress with embellished shoulder detailing for the official event which saw her and Prince William reveal a portrait of Queen Elizabeth.

Kate wore a decidedly different look from the sky blue Alexander McQueen dress coat she showcased earlier in the day to pay tribute to New Zealanders who lost their lives in war.

The Duchess looked simply stunning as she mingled and drank champagne with NZ's Governor-General and other state officials.

Baby Prince George was nowhere to be seen. We're guessing he was all tucked up in bed after his very first royal engagement the day before.

George and his parents had a hectic day on Wednesday as they attended a mass play date at Government House in Wellington... An event, which unsurprisingly produced a whole heap of adorable pictures.
