Kate Middleton Debuts Totally New Sleek Look And It's A Jaw-Dropping Departure
Lights, camera, action!
Kate Middleton, an avid amateur photographer, stood in front of the camera for her final engagement.
The Duchess of Cambridge looked almost like a glamorous news personality in a video released Monday on behalf of the upcoming virtual awards ceremony for Wildlife Photographer of the Year.
In an elegant, all-black look, the Duchess looked sharp in chic black trousers and a tuxedo jacket from one of her favorite designer houses, Alexander McQueen, according to Grazia magazine. The look felt like a complete departure from her usual wardrobe.
Kate's hair appeared to be more honey-colored, a few shades lighter than her normal color. The Duchess previewed the lighter shade around July and has continued to lighten the color, according to Harper's Bazaar.
"It is so wonderful to be back in the reopened Natural History Museum, where we can enjoy all of its treasures again," said the Duchess into the camera.
"I'm here to announce the 56th wildlife photographer of the year tomorrow night," she said. "I was lucky enough to have a quick preview and I can say it is really spectacular. I can't wait for you all to see it."

In May, the Duchess of Cambridge started her own exhibition for digital photography with the title “Hold Still” in collaboration with the National Portrait Gallery of London.
The aim of the project, which received over 31,000 submissions, was to capture life in the UK amid the coronavirus pandemic. There were three main themes: helpers and heroes, your new normal and kind actions.

Kate and a jury limited entries to just 100 photos, although all entrants received high praise from none other than Queen Elizabeth herself.
“The Duchess of Cambridge and I were thrilled to see how the photos captured the resilience of the British people at such a challenging time, whether it be by celebrating frontline workers, realizing the community spirit, or showing the efforts of individuals to the needy support. Said the queen.
