The Duchess of Cambridge has a lot on her plate. She’s got all that hair to comb, royal etiquette with which to become acquainted, and now, her husband’s out of town for six weeks. What’s a newly minted member of the ruling class to do?

Why, go to the museum, of course! Kate was photographed on her way in to a preview of the Lucien Freud Portraits exhibit at the National Portraits Gallery, where she’s also a patron. She wore a grey Jesire coat dress, a diamond bracelet, black pumps and carried a black clutch. As usual, well played, Ms. Middleton.
