When she put on her Eponine London dress on Feb. 5, Kate Middleton may have thought she was just slipping into a green gown. Little did she know that it would be dubbed the ‘world’s angriest’ by a royal fan.
Kate Middleton, 37, wore an eye-catching, green Eponine London dress on Feb. 5 when she visited the Lavender Primary School in the U.K. as part of Children’s Mental Health Week. But the $2,500 bespoke gown drew attention – not just for its fashion features – but for something completely out of left field. Shortly after she stepped out in the dress, royal watcher Sairajasmin Davies tweeted about Kate’s look, writing, “Someone wasn’t happy to be brought out of the wardrobe this morning… World’s angriest dress #DuchessofCambridge #pocketeyes.”
At first glance you may not spot it, but once it’s pointed out, it’s hard not see that the buttons and shape of Kate’s pockets do indeed give the impression that her outfit is a tad upset about something!
We have no idea what Kate’s dress could be angry about, but she was focusing on children’s emotions as part of her two engagements that day. The Duchess of Cambridge – who is patron of the children’s mental health charity, Place2Be – spoke to parents, students and teachers at Lavender Primary School in Enfield, London about how they work towards supporting the wellbeing of youngsters. According to the Kensington Palace Instagram page the steps the school takes include getting children to run outside for 15 minutes a day, as well as charting the link between food and mood. Kate also visited the Alperton Community School to find out how parents, students and teachers work towards building the kids’ confidence.
Some royal fans praised Kate’s choice of dress given the occasion. One person tweeted, “It was definitely a happy-go-lucky vibe outfit for me that I guess suited today’s agenda. Nothing stuffy or too formal, vibrant colour [sic] with fun eye detailing at the pockets and those boooootts…. Chic and bit dressed down that worked well for an engagement involving lots of kids.” Another fan gushed, “Yes, lovely colour [sic] and wonderful towards children.” Looks like Kate’s dress was a hit all round!
