Kate Middleton Visits Royal Opera House’s Costume Department; Surprising Family Connection Revealed

Kate Middleton Visits Royal Opera House’s Costume Department; Surprising Family Connection Revealed

The visit was of special importance to Middleton, as her great-great-grandfather, Francis Martineau Lupton, was a successful textile manufacturer. On Jan. 15, Kate had fun chatting with children about their love of pizza and everything outdoors, and the work didn't stop the next day, as she visited the costume department at the Royal Opera House to talk all things textiles. While she's always one to look stylish for every occasion, the mother of three stepped out in a vibrant magenta skirt suit by Oscar de la Renta.

Up to 10,000 costumes are used each year by artists from The Royal Ballet and The Royal Opera House.

The duchess also had the opportunity to get up close to some of the ballet costumes and learn more about how historic fabrics are reproduced using digital printing and how the outfits are created to allow movement for the dancers.

Her choice of fuchsia comes just two days after her sister-in-law Meghan Markle was praised for choosing a similar sartorial colour palette on a visit to Birkenhead, The Sun reported.

During her first engagement of 2019, the Duchess of Cambridge met with local residents and school children from St Jude and St Paul's CE Primary School to discuss their experiences of the community garden.

She also said that her children will get jealous when they find out that their mom made pizza without them.

The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, is designing a garden that will showcase at the Chelsea Flower Show in May and it sounds like a pretty big deal.
