The Duchess of Cambridge was spotted at the Houghton Horse Trials with Prince George and Princess Charlotte today. Prince George was seen wearing a green polo, tan shorts and blue sneakers. Princess Charlotte was wearing a pink dress, pink sneakers and a pink bow in her hair.
The event is held on the beautiful grounds of Houghton Hall, Norfolk and gained notoriety in 2007. Now, over 700 horses are welcomed each year including 350 international competitors. The event includes entertainment, 70 trade stands and lots of food vendors. And thankfully, there were sweet treats as Princess Charlotte was seen enjoying a sherbet ice cream cone.
The Cambridge crew are likely staying at their Norfolk home in Anmer Hall, thus, making it an easy day trip to watch the horses at Houghton Hall.
The event also boasts exhibitors displaying country clothing, equestrian supplies, local produce and garden furniture. If the kids grow bored with all the horse play, there’s a sculpture exhibition at the hall currently featuring the works of Damien Hirst. Some of the exhibits form part of the visual arts program of Norfolk and Norwich Festival 2018.
Lord Cholmondeley, owner of Houghton, said: ”We are delighted to have this opportunity to show Damien Hirst’s new paintings in the State Rooms at Houghton, together with some of his best-known sculptures in the grounds. It is perhaps the first time that Hirst has shown a significant body of work in a formal country house setting. William Kent’s gilded interiors will be transformed for the duration of the show.”
Since the outing was rather casual, and Kate did not bring baby Prince Louis, she opted for a comfortable blue floral Zara dress (ID ufonomore@Twitter) with short puff sleeves, floral applique detailing and embroidered sequins.
