Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton embarked on her second day in Ottawa at the Canadian Museum of Civilisation wearing the same Reiss dress she wore for her official engagement portrait back in December. She accessorized her cream-colored dress with a brooch borrowed from the Queen and a red hat, decorated with maple leaves, the official symbol of Canada, from Lock & Co. milliners. She carried an Anya Hindmarch clutch in the shape of a fan.
Today is Canada Day and also what would have been the 50th birthday of the late great Princess Diana, Prince William's mother.
