Will Kate Middleton Wear Red, White Or Blue To Tonight's Paralympics Opening Ceremony?

29 August 2012 by

GALLERY >> The Duchess' Top 10 Olympics Oufits

Oh, what to wear? At this very moment, Kate Middleton is probably sifting through her Royal wardrobe desperately trying to decide what to wear to the Paralympics Opening Ceremony tonight.

As official Paralympics GB ambassador and general style icon of the world, all eyes will be on the Duchess as she attends the London shindig on the arm of hubby Prince William. Sadly Harry will not be in attendance to divert attention away from the DoC with his infamous crown jewels. Boo to that.

But we digress. For a clue of what's to come from Kate, we've reviewed the wonderful wardrobe she compiled for the Olympics festivities in the gallery above. Judging from that blue Whistles frock she wore to the Closing Ceremony, the red Zara blazer for the swimming event and that flirty white skirt for a spot of hockey, we can safely place our bets on her wearing at least one - if not ALL - of the patriotic colours this evening.

OR will she surprise us by cracking out a snazzy metallic number? And will she go high-street or high-end? Check back at 8pm for all the answers! In the meantime, let's pay homage to her Olympics oeuvre...

Christopher Kane For Opening Ceremony

Kate's gold-medal-worthy style marathon began at the Opening Ceremony when she opted for a [a href="/fashion/archive/2012/07/27/is-kate-middleton-really-wearing-christopher-kane-to-meet-michelle-obama-at-olym.htm">Christopher Kane creation[/a]. How thrilled we were to see such fashion gusto! Albeit it in a pale blue coat dress.

Zara For Olympic Torch Relay

When the [a target="_blank" href="/fashion/archive/2012/07/26/kate-middleton-olympics-torch.htm">Olympic Torch Relay[/a] passed through Buckingham Palace on 26th July, the DoC was ready and waiting in a simple white airtex shirt with cobalt blue jeans with black wedged pumps.

Next For Olympic Village

When Kate popped into the Olympic Village, she added the official Team GB scarf from Next to her chic ensemble, which consisted of her favourite Smythe jacket over a classic Breton striped top and navy trousers plus Stuart Weitzman wedges.

Smythe For Equestrian

We were a little disappointed with Kate's desire not to upstage the athletes as she stuck to a simple uniform for many of the events. Once again, she was armed with [a href="/fashion/archive/2012/07/31/kate-middleton-wears-smythe-blazer-and-striped-vest-for-her-second-day-at-the-eq.htm">her faithful navy blue and gold buttoned Smythe blaze[/a][a href="/fashion/archive/2012/07/31/kate-middleton-wears-smythe-blazer-and-striped-vest-for-her-second-day-at-the-eq.htm">r[/a] to watch Prince William's cousin Zara Phillips compete in the equestrian eventing on 31st July.

Stella McCartney For Tennis

Another day, another Olympics 2012 event for the DoC and she remained the reigning Queen of Recycling when cheering on Andy Murray at the Men's Singles tennis quarter final. Oh yes, [a href="/fashion/archive/2012/08/02/kate-middleton-cheers-on-andy-murray-wearing-her-blue-stella-mccartney-dress-in-.htm">that Stella McCartney vibrant blue dress[/a] she wore to the National Portrait Gallery got another outing but this time, Kate teamed it with her beloved Smythe blazer.

Adidas Trainers For Sailing

With barely a breather between events, Kate made an appearance in Weymouth aboard a boat to cheer on Team GB in the Women's Laser Radials race. Kate chose a Team GB tracksuit top, skinny jeans and Givenchy sunglasses, but this time she tied her glossy locks into a ponytail. A sensible decision considering it was a tad windy up on deck.

White For Hockey

Ever the hockey fan, the Duchess watched Team GB take home the bronze medal in the women's match wearing a summery white skirt with a sleeveless pullover. Cute!

Jeans For Cycling

Kate did her best to blend in with the crowd by wearing [a href="/fashion/archive/2012/08/03/what-kate-middleton-wore-to-the-olympics-2012-day-seven--a-team-gb-tracksuit.htm">a simple ensemble[/a] at the Velodrome but she wasn't fooling anyone.

Zara For Swimming

Kate ditched her tracksuit to watch Rebecca Adlington attempt to defend her Olympic title. Hurrah! Instead she wore a white spotted top, black skinny jeans and [a href="/fashion/archive/2012/08/03/what-kate-middleton-wore-to-the-olympics-2012-day-seven--a-team-gb-tracksuit.htm">red Zara blazer[/a] with gathered shoulders and gold buttons.

Whistles For Closing Ceremony

And to top it all off, we got another royal repeat in the shape of [a href="/fashion/archive/2012/08/12/kate-middleton-wears-whistles-dress-to-the-olympics-2012-closing-ceremony.htm">the very same Bella dress[/a] by Whistles that Kate wore to the Jubilee concert in June. Phewf! How's she gonna top all that for the Paralympics? As ever, we'll be watching.
