The couple were welcomed to the Inner City Arts academy by six elementary-aged children holding a welcome banner.
Kate wore a navy-and-white crochet top and an ivory 'Lina Dobby' pleated skirt (£95 and as of this writing only available in a size 16), both by Whistles.
The following description is from www.johnlewis.com
'Featuring on-trend pleats and a light, feminine ivory tone the Whistles Lina skirt offers a high waist and all over dobby spot print.'
Kate accessorized with her Belle and Mimi Suede Pointed Court Shoe, her ivory moc-croc clutch, sapphire and diamond earrings and her diamond cross pendant necklace.
Kate & William departed aboard a British Airway aircraft from LAX this afternoon. They posed for a few pictures and were then ushered inside.
I had been unable to locate the navy-and-white crochet top seen above that the media has been reporting as being Whistles. I contacted Whistles and asked them for confirmation that this was, indeed their top. This is the response that I received back from them:
'Whistles The crochet top is definitely not Whistles. The Lina double pleat skirt has sold out online but is still available in our stores'
I will continue to do my research and post when I have an update.
After much thought and research, I have come to the conclusion that Kate's crochet top is, in fact, Whistles. Below are some close-up pictures of the top taken from Ebay.
