Kate Middleton and her husband Prince William appeared at the Royal Variety Performance event in Kensington. Kate Middleton wore a green dress with slits on long sleeves from Safiyaa, which she accessorized with diamond jewelry.
This is the first appearance of the Princess of Wales after the media named members of the royal family who speculated about the skin color of Meghan Markle's unborn child. She and King Charles III were mentioned by the writer Omid Scobie, who is called “Meghan’s mouthpiece”: he removed their names from his book, but they appeared in the translation of the book into Dutch allegedly due to a “translation error”, and later they were announced by British television.
In addition, Omid Scobie also wrote that Kate Middleton did not support Meghan Markle, who, according to her, needed sympathy and expected it from Kate.
