When blasted by northern Canada's ferocious winds, Kate struggled with multiple Marilyn moments as she arrived on the tarmac in Calgary. The couple further raised eyebrows when they did not immediately don the white ten-gallon hats they were gifted at the airport, but none of this detracted from Diamond Marshall's heartwarming greeting. The adorable little girl gave the Princess a bouquet and an impulsive hug. To the heartbreak of many, Diamond lost her battle to cancer in late 2014.
The couple visited a Calgary hospital and research center before the farewell reception that evening, for which Kate changed to western-wear.
Jane's Verdict: "This dress was a little short-waisted on the Duchess, but the bright color against her tan and the blue sky made up for that one drawback. The bigger issue was, of course, the windy conditions. An aide should have briefed the Duchess on the possibility of a skirt situation when she was planning her wardrobe at home in London. C'est la vie. The images with sweet Diamond erase all other problems with ensemble."
