Kate Middleton's latest art outing came with a bit of a family twist. Today, the Duchess of Cambridge headed to the V&A museum to take in their latest exhibition of Fabergé eggs. A former art history major, Kate is also a Royal Patron of the V&A, so she's regularly seen at events and exhibitions there, but today's outing had a particularly personal touch. Among the over 200 iconic works of Carl Fabergé were three with an extra special connection to Kate, as they were on loan from her grandmother-in-law Queen Elizabeth.
For the occasion, Kate donned a paisley patterned top in a blousy, romantic shape from Lauren Ralph Lauren—perhaps a nod to the elaborately detailed works of art around her.
Titled "Fabergé in London: Romance to Revolution," the exhibition, which opened on November 20th, features the largest collection of Fabergé's famous Imperial Easter Eggs to go on display in decades. It includes some that have never before been on show in the UK, like the Third Imperial Egg, which was discovered by a scrap dealer in 2011 after it went missing in 1964; the Moscow Kremlin Egg, which is the largest of the collection and features a music box that plays Tsar Nicholas II's favorite hymn; and the Alexander Palace Egg, which contains a model of the palace inside. As for the Queen's contribution to the display, three eggs from her collection—the Colonnade Egg, the Basket of Flowers Egg, and the Mosaic Egg—are also on show.
