Kate Cheers on Zara Phillips as Team GB Take Home the Silver

The Royals returned to Greenwhich Park today to cheer on Zara Phillips as she helped Team GB take home a silver medal in the Team Jumping final of the three-discipline Olympic equestrian competition.

Kate wore her navy blue Smythe jacket and paired it with a blue and white Breton striped tank.

The Duchess also wore her navy blue J Brand 811 skinny jeans.

Kate accessorized her look with navy suede Stuart Weitzman 'Coco' wedges and a navy 'Muse' clutch also from high street brand Russell & Bromley.

During the medal ceremony Kate wrapped up in a Team GB jacket.

    Kate Makes a Solo Appearance at the Royal Academy of Arts Reception

    Last night Kate made a solo appearance at the arts institution in central London for a reception celebrating the best of British music, film, art and entertainment. The event was hosted by the Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt MP.

    She walked the red carpet and was greeted by Prime Minister David Cameron.

    The Duchess of Cambridge wore an elegant dove grey dress by Serbian born designer Roksanda Ilincic.

    We first saw this outfit, which has an unusual slashed neckline, when she arrived in LA last year on her inaugural royal tour.

    Roksanda Ilincic still has the dress available but you won't find it at their boutiques. You need to contact them via email. They are selling it in the US for $1300.

    However the dress is still available at stores in a peridot color. This is described as a petrol blue wool crepe.

    The Duchess completed her outfit with a pair of light taupe LK Bennett 'Harper' suede heels (£195), tan tights, a sparkly white and gold clutch (yet to be ID'd), and hooped Kiki McDonough blue topaz circle earrings.

    Additional information on Kate's 'Harper' heels:
    Closed court
    110mm heel

    Kate wore her hair up in an elegant side-chignon, showing off her beautiful earrings.

    The Royals Cheer On Team GB's Equestrian Team

    This afternoon, the royals came out in full force to cheer on Team GB's equestrian team. Kate, William, Harry, Camilla, Bea and Eugenie all showed their support. Zara Phillips competed in the cross country run.

    Zara completed her run in nine minutes and 55 seconds.

    Kate dressed down in her navy blue J Brand 811 skinny jeans, her Team GB/Adidas white polo shirt and her navy Smythe blazer.

    Her accessories included her black Stuart Weitzman 'Corkswoon' black wedges ($225 and available at zappos.com), her Givenchy SGV 761 (Was £145.00 on sale for £127.00) and a London 2012 Olympics Logo Pin on her lapel in Green ($8.95).

    Update 7/31/2012

    Thanks to WKW for the updated info. Kate's shoes, are in fact, navy suede and not black as we had first thought. These are Stuart Weitzman made for Russell and Bromley called 'Coco.' They are available in store, but not yet online.

    Per Russell & Bromley on Twitter 'We can confirm that the Duchess wore Stuart Weitzman for Russell & Bromley SW Coco in Navy Suede to the Olympics yesterday.'
