If anyone can wear a tiara one day and then rock a baseball cap the next and somehow pull it off, it's Kate Middleton!
The Duchess of Cambridge was spotted getting some fresh air with Prince George as they went for a stroll in Kensington Gardens earlier this week!
Kate was a
little LOT more dressed down than we're used to seeing her as she wore jeans, sneakers, a scarf and a baseball cap on their lovely walk! Who knew mom clothes could look so elegant?!
But before you start getting TOO carried away with ideas about her casual clothing, we'd like to point out that she's pushing the little prince in a Sliver Cross Sleepover Elegance Stroller, which only costs about $2,300!!
Holy guacamole! No wonder she's so dressed down! LOLz!

Prince William and Kate Middleton were the guests of honor at last night’s premiere of Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, the biopic based on Nelson Mandela's incredible story of struggle and perseverance.
But as the credits rolled and the theater erupted into a standing ovation of praise for the film, word then spread of the great leader’s passing!
While leaving the Leicester Square cinema, Prince William stopped to comment on the sad news of Nelson Mandela’s death. He solemnly shared:
The world has lost a great leader today.
And in what might be a bittersweet coincidence, Nelson Mandela’s incredible story of courage and conviction was made into a movie that just premiered tonight in London.
The former South African president’s daughter Zindzi Mandela was in attendance with Prince William and Kate Middleton and walked the red carpet on her way into the film about her father.
Such sad news, but Zindzi has a lot to be proud of in her father's never ending fight for freedom.
Rest in peace, Mr. Mandela.

To honor the great Nelson Mandela, a man whom we've just learned has sadly passed away, Kate Middleton and Prince William put on their fanciest clothes to attend the premiere of Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom in London.
The Duchess looked absolutely stunning in a recycled cream Roland Mouret long-sleeved gown with a short slit that showed off her royal calves, and she paired the exquisite number with a silver necklace from Zara.
Talk about high-low — that necklace is gonna fly off shelves.
Black Prada pumps and a Mulberry clutch matched the black velvet sash in her ponytail and put the perfect finishing touch on her look!
And, obvi, Prince William looked dashing as always. We didn't forget him!
Both royals sincerely stunned while paying homage to a man who impacted the world in so many ways we can't even begin to express our gratitude for.

Princess Diana's style icon status lives on!
The late royal's fairy tale-inspired ball gown from 1986 was auctioned off yesterday at the Kelly Taylor Auction House in London for approximately $163,000!
The dress, designed by the Princess's wedding dress designers David and Elizabeth Emanuel, features a peplum accent and ornate gold embellishments throughout, and was purchased by an unknown museum.
Diana wore the dress on several occasions, including a banquet at the German Embassy in London in honor of Queen Elizabeth II and at the premiere of the Bolshoi Ballet's Ivan the Terrible at the Royal Opera House.
She wore it a third time at the premiere of the James Bond film The Living Daylights in 1987. We love that she recycled her outfits just like Kate Middleton does now!

When we saw Kate Middleton on the volleyball court, we were SUPER impressed with her incredible ability to bump and spike in 5-inch wedges!
But when we recently saw her hubby Prince William on the court, it was a WHOLE different story!
The Duke of Cambridge made his way to the Westway Sports Centre in west London where he got a chance to meet some volleyballing youngsters!
But when the prince tried to get involved in the game, things got a tad bit ugly! In fact, one kid said he "felt sorry" that Prince William was unable to return his serves! Yikes!
Looks like he might want to consider getting a few lessons from Kate! LOLz!
Ch-ch-check out more pics of Prince William looking a little lost on the volleyball court (below)!

Reminding the world that she has access to the Queen of England's jewels, Kate Middleton donned a sparkling diamond tiara to an event at Buckingham Palace yesterday.
The crown, called the Lotus Flower Tiara or the Papyrus Tiara, was originally given to the Queen Mother by her husband George VI, and was made from a necklace she had received as a wedding gift.
Kate paired the shimmering piece with diamond chandelier earrings borrowed from the Queen and a high-neck, lace Alexander McQueen dress.
Oh, to be a duchess!
