The thigh-skimming hemline said it all. Tuesday night”s pop concert with Gary Barlow entertaining, was as close to a night off as the Duchess of Cambridge gets in her hectic schedule.
Keen to let her hair down, Kate stepped out in a Zara dress which was, for her classic tastes, a daring change.
And, in a departure from her last public appearance, when Kate wore a £1, 400 Mulberry dress, the mini cost only £69.99.
Inside the venue, the Duchess and husband Prince William were treated to a rousing performance by Take That star Gary, along with the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall.
The star told them: “I do hope you enjoy tonight and I hope it”s not too loud for you”, to which fun-loving William replied: “the louder the better”.
