By now, it's no secret that Kate Middleton will come out looking perfectly attired and groomed in every public engagement she attends, and the royal family's latest three-week tour to Australia and New Zealand is no exception. In her latest appearances she stepped out in a blue Alexander McQueen coat at an Aviation Museum before meeting Peter Jackson, director of a little trilogy you might have heard of, The Lord of the Rings, and the Hobbit. She then donned a black Jenny Packham dress to unveil of the Queen's portrait.

Kate obviously takes all these appearances in stride, including Prince George's first official playdate to meeting members of a Māori tribe in New Zealand. Here, we chronicled her unbreaking, effortless poise in the face of the various and sundry activities on the itinerary in the first week of her tour down under.
