The Duchess of Cambridge is going on tour in April, as she is preparing to go on an official visit to Australia and New Zealand with her boys William and George. We have already heard that she will wear longer hemlines on the Queen's orders, but now we have even more details of her Australia wardrobe.
The Duchess will have a bling-over, as she will be travelling with the crown jewels. The Mirror reports that she is selecting jewellery from the Queen's collection, including the Australian yellow and white diamond wattle brooch which the Queen wore when she arrived in Australia in 2011.

She is also tipped to wear the diamond and ruby Australian hibiscus brooch which the Queen inherited from the Queen Mother in 2002. Then there is a blue pearl brooch which was a personal gift from New Zealand's Prime Minister John Key to the Queen, which he gave her when he visited Balmoral Castle last September. There's also the Andamooka Opal Necklace and Earrings which was presented to the Queen in 1954 in South Australia. So there are plenty of Australia-themed options for her to choose from!
A source said to The Mirror: 'Just like Princess Diana 30 years ago, the eyes of the world will be on Kate when she goes on this tour. It’s a landmark trip for her, her first trip to Australia and New Zealand, countries which are extremely important to the Queen and Commonwealth. Significantly, it’s also her first royal tour as a mother, and the fact they are taking Prince George will attract huge interest. It’s fitting that she will use the opportunity to show off some of the royal family’s jewellery - particularly pieces that have links to the countries she is visiting.'
