- Surprise! With no forewarning, Kate Middleton and Prince William are making a short, two-day trip to Northern Ireland to celebrate the young people in the region.
- Kate stunned in a rewear: bright red Carolina Herrera coatdress and L.K. Bennett lace-up boots (on sale now!).
- Kate and William aren't the only royals to take a short, but important important diplomatic trip: Meghan Markle and Prince Harry JUST got back from a quick but busy trip to Morocco at the request of the government.

Ooh, this is exciting! Kate Middleton and Prince William have taken an unannounced trip to Northern Ireland for only the third time ever. According to royal reporter Rebecca English, reporters couldn't reveal the trip was happening in advance for security reasons. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are visiting Belfast, Fermanagh, and Ballymena to "celebrate the young people of Northern Ireland."
English continued, "Day one will have a strong focus on the positive impact that sport, nature and the outdoors can have on childhood development, and improved physical and mental health for all."
Kate looked stunning, of course, in a whole outfit that looks like a rewear. Her Carolina Herrera coatdress (about $1,600) is one of her favorites, apparently, and she loves her chunky lace-up L.K. Bennett boots just as much as I do. Oh and, just in case you were interested, those boots are currently on sale. They're in my shopping cart, FYI.[editoriallinks id='d0ff965b-e229-49dd-9f40-9598e54cb86b'][/editoriallinks]
