Prince William, Kate Middleton, and Prince Harry might have been sitting next to each other at the Rugby World Cup on Saturday, but the family members were rooting for opposing teams. While William and Kate sang the Welsh anthem (in Welsh, according to People), Prince Harry was visibly cheering on England. The brothers wore colors to match to their favored teams, but Kate didn't let her wardrobe give her loyalty away.
For the majority of the match, the Duchess of Cambridge's outfit was only visible from the shoulders up as she clapped and cuddled with her husband. When the trio stood up to leave the stadium, it was clear that she wore her party pants for the occasion. A reader of From Berkshire to Buckingham, a style blog dedicated to Kate's outfits, pointed out that the trousers look similar to this $40 pair by Zara. Kate Middleton and fast fashion, a love story.
