Kate flies solo

First overseas royal visit

The world may be a little preoccupied with a certain birthday boy turning one today, but soon it’s his mum who will be back in the spotlight. It has been announced that Kate Middleton (and her envy-inducing wardrobe) will represent the Queen on a visit to Malta in September – her first overseas tour without her husband by her side.

Kate will attend celebrations for the 50th anniversary of Malta’s independence on 20 and 21 September – and while the trip may only last two days, we’ve got our fingers crossed for at least six classic Kate ensembles (one must dress for breakfast, lunch and dinner, surely?). And as for colour scheme? We’re predicting lots of red and white – the colours of Malta’s flag, obviously.
