Kate Middleton wows in lace as Prince William dons uniform for Jamaica ceremony

KATE Middleton dazzled in bridal white today as she and dapper William dressed up for a military parade.

The couple, who are on day six of their royal Caribbean tour, were pictured beaming at each other as they enjoyed the ceremony in Jamaica.


The prince wore his tropical dress of the Blues and Royals, with medals on show.

Meanwhile, Kate channelled Audrey Hepburn's Eliza Doolittle in a custom lace Alexander McQueen dress and Philip Treacy hat.

The duchess teamed her ensemble with a stunning pearl bracelet that belonged to Princess Diana. She also carried a £395 Anya Hindmarch satin clutch.  

The Cambridges dressed to impress for the inaugural Jamaica Defence Force Commissioning Parade, which honours service personnel who have completed the Caribbean Military Academy's officer training programme.

They were driven to the event in the same open-top Land Rover that carried the Queen and Prince Philip back in 1953.

And William quoted Bob Marley as he addressed the new graduates, telling his audience: "You never know how strong you are, until being strong is your only choice."

Following the engagement, the couple will travel to the Bahamas for the next stop on their tour.

Today's event comes hours after William made a landmark speech on the horrors of slavery.

The duke, 39, addressed politicians amid the continuing unrest across the nation and demands for the Royal Family to apologise and pay billions of pounds in reparations.

He told guests at a formal banquet last night that "it should never have happened".

He then echoed the words of his father, who branded the slave trade a "stain on our history" four months ago when Caribbean neighbours Barbados declared itself a republic.

Anniversaries are also a moment for reflection, particularly this week with the International Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade.

"I strongly agree with my father, The Prince of Wales, who said in Barbados last year that the appalling atrocity of slavery forever stains our history," he said.

"I want to express my profound sorrow. Slavery was abhorrent. And it should never have happened.

"While the pain runs deep, Jamaica continues to forge its future with determination, courage and fortitude."

Jamaica's prime minister Andrew Holness appeared to suggest his country may be the next to break away from the monarchy, telling the Cambridges there are plans to "move on".
