While Meghan Markle and Prince Harry shone yesterday on the New York red carpet, their 39-year-old British relative, Kate Middleton, was opening two new galleries at the Imperial War Museum in London: the World War II Gallery and the Holocaust Gallery.
For her release, Kate chose a restrained and elegant look: the Alexander McQueen blouse in a nautical style, which she has worn many times before, the Duchess of Cambridge combined with navy tailored Catherine Walker trousers, a Hobbs coat and classic pumps.
Kate, who herself is fond of the art of photography, met the heroes of her own photographs – Yvonne Bernstein and Stephen Frank. Their portraits, taken by the Duchess, became part of the exhibition.
Photos of Yvonne Bernstein and Stephen Frank were taken by Kate Middleton at Kensington Palace last year, thus taking part in the #HolocaustMemorialDay project, which was timed to coincide with the 75th anniversary of the end of the Holocaust. Then Kate said that the stories of Yvonne and Stephen, whom she called “the two most life-affirming people”, will stay with her forever.
