The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton looked picture perfect as she arrived at the Victoria & Albert Museum to see some of the 800,000 images in the new Photography Centre.
Kate, who was named as royal patron of the historic London museum in March, was given a tour by the museum director Tristram Hunt.
It was her first official engagement as patron of Victoria & Albert Museum.
Kate showed off her slender figure in a fit-and-flare dress from British label Erdem’s SS18 collection.
She teamed the lovely dress with a small box clutch, burgundy suede heels and a pair of earrings from Erdem.
The mother-of-three looked delighted while seeing some of the artwork during her visit to the Victoria & Albert Museum.
Kate was shown Queen Victoria’s diamond and sapphire coronet which her husband Prince Albert designed and had made for the Sovereign between 1840-42.
She viewed the opening display, called ‘Collecting Photography where pioneering women like Julia Margaret Cameron, Agnes Warburg and Cindy Sherman’s work was on the display.
Tristram Hunt, Director of the V&A, said in a statement:
‘Our collection – established by the V&A’s visionary first director Henry Cole – now seamlessly spans the entire history of photography, telling the story of the medium from the daguerreotype to the digital.’
‘Our new Photography Centre provides a world-class facility to re-establish photography as one of our defining collections. In an era when everyone’s iPhone makes them a photographer, the V&A’s Photography Centre explores and explains the medium in a compelling new way.’
