Kate Middleton wore a Tory Burch dress in the colors of the Belize flag

She is known for her diplomatic prowess and the Duchess of Cambridge once again showed her mastery of the art by donning the colors of the Belize flag on the second day of her Caribbean tour with Prince William.

William and Kate kicked off the second date of their tour by indulging their love of music and chocolate as they were shown around the Maya Cocoa Farm in the coastal town of Hopkins in a last-minute addition to their schedule on Sunday.

Literal dressing is all about showing up to an event and taking the theme of the occasion very literally, like showing up to a sailing event in a nautical blouse or to Wimbledon in chic tennis-inspired whites as Kate put it. made.

Promoters use it as a way to show their support for the event they are attending or the place they are visiting.

So it was no wonder to see Kate, 40, in a £500 red and blue floral midi dress by Tory Burch, the colors of Belize’s flag, for the occasion.

She finished her look with a fan-shaped clutch by British designer Anya Hindmarch, which she recycled from a look while touring Canada with William in 2011.

And to add an extra touch of blue, she donned £55 blue textile earrings from fashionable French brand Sézane.

During their trip, the Duke and Duchess learned how the Mayans cultivate cocoa trees, process cocoa beans and make chocolate.

The cocoa farm guide offered a detailed explanation and the process of extracting the cocoa beans from the pods, then fermenting and finally drying them before they are ready to be made into chocolate.

Using a big stick, the guide showed them how to successfully break the pod in half and said, “That’s how it goes.”

As the royal couple watched, Kate said: ‘You make it look so easy’ and William joked: ‘If I did that I would lose a finger!’

Later in the visit, Kate tried her hand at feather grinding, crushed cocoa beans, a backbreaking job traditionally done by women in rural communities, during their visit to the Che’il chocolate factory.

Later, as the future queen watched her husband hammer with a volcanic rock mortar and pestle, she said: “The chocolate smell is amazing.”

William even joked that he gave up his day job as a member of the royal family when he asked Julio Saqui, owner of the family chocolate business: “Are you taking on apprentices?”

“Can I come and work for you? It’s my kind of thing.
