Kate joined the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh on a series of public engagements in Leicester as the three kicked off the Diamond Jubilee Tour celebrating Elizabeth II's 60 years as reigning monarch. Kate was striking in an L.K. Bennett ensemble. The trio took the train to Leicester where they toured De Montfort University and enjoyed a fashion show before moving to a thanksgiving service at Leicester Cathedral. They enjoyed a private lunch at St. Martins House, a conference and events center near the Cathedral. During the course of the day, one fan asked Kate how William (deployed in the Falklands) was doing. She answered well, but that she "missed him terribly."
