Prince William, Duchess Kate charm Paris

As always, the Duchess looked elegant as she selected a mix of her favourite designers - from British and French to American.

Earlier on Saturday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited the Invalides military museum in Paris.

At a star-studded black-tie dinner at the ambassador's residence, Kate was seated next to "Godzilla" star Jean Reno, while her husband had French actress Audrey Tautou and Kristin Scott-Thomas, the British actress who lives in Paris, for company.

In the world's fashion capital, Kate wore a sleeveless V-neck black dress by Alexander McQueen before changing into a gray-blue gown by British designer Jenny Packham later in the evening.

Prince William, 34, who is colonel of the Irish Guards, and Princess Kate, 35, visited the 1st Battalion Irish Guards at their base and later joined officers and their families for a pint of Guinness.

AC Milan loanee Gerard Deulofeu denies thinking about Barcelona return
Barcelona would have to pay a fee of around € 12m to trigger the repurchase option and sign him from Everton in the summer. He's played just nine times for the San Siro side but that has earned him a call-up to Julen Lopetegui's Spain squad.

The two-day visit is Prince William's first official trip to the French capital since the tragic death of his mother Diana, the Princess of Wales, in a vehicle accident at the Pont de l'Alma tunnel two decades ago.

The Duchess has become very adept at championing home grown talent whilst also making sure to promote her host country whilst on royal visits.

The duchess swapped her Chanel dress for a red Carolina Herrera coat. A shooting at Orly airport prompted tightened security shortly before the royal couple were due to meet victims of the November 2015 attacks on the French capital.

In another symbolic show of support, William and Kate will travel Saturday to Stade de France to watch France take on Wales in the Six Nations rugby match.
