The Prince and Princess of Wales have strategy, fashion, in action.
William and Catherine arrived in the United States on Wednesday (30) for their first international trip after the death of Queen Elizabeth II and the three pairs of looks seen in just 24 hours are already sending an important message about how the new generation of British royalty. is dealing with crises.
Before getting into fashion, it’s important to understand the context of the couple’s appearances, which arrive in Boston after the loss of the most beloved member of the family by the general public.
