Kate completes a hat-trick: Duchess of Cambridge has a busy day at the Olympics as she visits three different events (but where did she change her outfits)
*re-post from Mail Online*
- The Duchess of Cambridge joined Sally Gunnell and David Cameron to watch Jessica Ennis then headed to the Riverbank Arena to watch GB Hockey team play Pakistan
- She then cheered on double-medal winner Becky Adlington to bronze in swimming’s 800m freestyle
- She wore the same white sporty Team GB polo as last night for the athletics and hockey, with her trademark pearl earring and Givenchy sunglasses
- For the swimming, Kate looked radiant in a polka dot top underneath a red blazer
The key to the Duchess of Cambridge looking so radiant may in part be to do with her keeping herself looking fresh.
In attending her third event of the day, the 800m freestyle where she cheered Becky Adlington on to her second bronze medal of the Games, Kate had swapped her casual Team GB polo shirt for a polka dot top underneath a smart and sharp red blazer.
The changing of outfits may lead many to question whether there may be a ‘Royal locker room’ somewhere in and around the Olympic venues.

Watch out! Kate and William keep a close eye on things at the Aquatics Centre as they cross their fingers for more GB gold
The Duchess of Cambridge applauded the Great Britain Men’s hockey team after they scored during the match against Pakistan on Day 7 of the London 2012 Olympic Games at Riverbank Arena Hockey Centre

Kate wore a more casual outfit at today’s hockey, she paired her Team GB fleece with blue skinny jeans and her new favourite wedges that Rebecca Adlington is also a big fan of.
After their rare show of affection last night watching Chris Hoy and the sprint team take home gold, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge seemed inseparable.
Prince William, in an interview with BBC’s Sue Barker, later revealed that he was praying he wouldn’t get caught on the ‘kiss cam’ even going as far as saying it would be ‘rather embarrassing’.
But it seemed that Kate has gotten so into the Olympic fever that she is competing against her husband for the title of Team GB’s top supporter after she was spotted back at the Olympic Park less than twenty four hours later, but this time without her husband.
Kate took to the balcony to cheer on the British hockey team who were playing Pakistan at the Riverbank Arena this evening, but William wasn’t too far behind, being interviewed on the BBC sofa at the nearby Media Centre by presenter Sue Barker.
As a keen hockey player at school, Kate watched avidly and showed her support as soon as the team scored their first goal.
Earlier on today the Duchess joined Prime Minister David Cameron and former 400m British Olympic champion Sally Gunnell to watch heptathlete Jessica Ennis set a new record in the 100m hurdles.
As an ambassador for Team GB Kate’s presence is a brilliant support for the team, and she followed up yesterday’s patriotic wardrobe choice of a Team GB Union white polo shirt that she wore at last night’s event, along with her trusty £145 pair of Givenchy sunglasses and trademark pearl earrings.

Kate was seen smiling and chatting to fellow supporters as they watched Jessica Ennis race towards victory.
Ennis, who has become synonymous with the glamour of the Olympics, won her race in 12.54 seconds – the fastest time ever recorded for the hurdles in the pentathlon.
It was the perfect start for the 26-year-old in front of a sell-out crowd at the 80,000-seater Olympic Stadium in Stratford.
Ennis, from Sheffield, will also be competing in the high jump, shot-put and 200m heats today. The gruelling seven-discipline event ends with the javelin, long jump, and 800m on Saturday.
She is the current world silver medallist and world indoor champion who unfortunately missed the Beijing Olympics because of injury.
This morning’s event is just one of the many events that she is expected to attend on day 7 of the Games.
The Duchess of Cambridge is clearly enjoying this summer’s top sporting events and has become an avid fan of a range of sports from velodrome to equestrian.
Since the Games started on Saturday she and her husband have taken full advantage of their VIP invites and have already been guests of honour at the equestrian events two days running.
The Royal family headed to Greenwich Park on Tuesday to cheer on the Queen’s granddaughter Zara Phillips as Team GB took home a silver medal in the Eventing Team Jumping final of the three-discipline Olympic equestrian eventing competition.
The Duchess of Cambridge along with Princes William and Harry joined Princess Anne and the Duchess of Cornwall to watch Zara compete.
Zara Phillips and her team mates narrowly missed out on gold in the equestrian eventing today but spectators were still delighted.
Kate and William then took their seats in the Royal Box at Wimbledon yesterday to cheer Andy Murray on to victory in the men’s singles quarter finals against Nicolas Almagro of Spain.
After showing her emotion at Murray’s Wimbledon defeat earlier this year, Kate seemed overjoyed to be returning to Centre Court to support the British favourite.
Kate and her husband William got into the supportive spirit quickly and joined in with another Mexican wave that ran through the crowd during the match.
There was no stopping the sports fanatic couple who, after enthusiastically cheering on Andy Murray on the tennis courts of Wimbledon, zipped across town in time to see the British men’s pursuit team smash the world record in their qualifying round and then go on to win gold in a breathtaking race.
No doubt Kate and William took advantage of the Olympic lanes in the Capital reserved for VIPs, and style icon Kate even found time to change out of her Stella McCartney shift dress and in to a sporty white polo shirt.
