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.

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.
