Appearing at the Dorchester Trophy Polo Match, onlookers noticed that William's hair was so short that his scalp was showing - a startling contrast to the floppy locks of his university student days. Still, it didn't seem to bother his girlfriend Kate, who looked on approvingly during the match.
With Prince William away on Army duties and one of the summer's hottest parties to go to, Kate needed a trusted companion to accompany her. So she simply turned to her boyfriend's best friend for help. And she ended up being delightedly whisked around the dance floor by Guy Pelly at the star-studded pre-Wimbledon event. The two jived into the early hours of yesterday at the party, hosted by Sir Richard Branson at the Roof Gardens nightclub in Kensington, West London. Wearing a demure black jacket and black and red floral knee-length skirt, she did not seem to be missing her royal boyfriend - who is on a military training exercise in Wales - too much.
Both William and Kate were happy to be pictured together at the prestigious Chakravarty Cup held at Ham Polo Club in Surrey. Wearing a body-hugging red polka-dot sun dress with matching Lulu Guinness wedge heels, the willowy brunette looked stunning as she laughed and joked with aides, demonstrating just how comfortable she is with the royals inner circle.
Kate was at the opening of The Shop At Bluebird, a fashion store on the King's Road in London. Wearing a pink jacket, which she said she bought from Harvey Nichols, over a small-print dress, Kate chatted to other guests including Vivienne Westwood and Mary Quant. Kate arrived at the party with her younger sister Pippa.
