Prince William and Kate Middleton kicked off their tour of the Asia Pacific region today with an event in Singapore. They're kicking off what will be a nine-day-long tour through Singapore, Malaysia, the Solomon Islands, and Tuvalu. Kate donned a tan Jenny Packham dress, featuring an appropriate embroidered design of orchids, to check out the Singapore Botanic Gardens with William. It was a special event for both Will and Kate — they unveiled an orchid named for Princess Diana, his mother. Princess Diana had been planning to see the flower herself before her death 15 years ago. William and Kate were also able to see varieties of orchids named after themselves.
Later, Kate made the rounds at a welcome ceremony at Singapore's Istana wearing a white and purple dress from Prabal Gurung. Kate looked well-rested after taking a pretrip getaway with her husband, Prince William. The duo were in Provence last week for rest and relaxation before heading East.
