Talk about brightening up a gloomy Thursday in Edinburgh; Kate was glowing in golden yellow for the Order of the Thistle service. Kate and William, who have the titles the Earl and Countess of Strathearn in Scotland, were at the service along with the Queen. The service, which took place in Edinburgh's St Giles Cathedral on the Royal Mile, saw William become a Knight of the Thistle, the highest honour in Scotland and the second highest in the UK after the Order of the Garter.

Edinburgh was cloaked in fog this morning, so Kate's bespoke yellow Emilia Wickstead coat was a breath of fresh air, brightening up the dreary weather. There was much discussion in the crowd as to the exact colour of Kate's coat, some said butterscotch, some said golden but it was a pretty colour whatever the shade. Kate also wore the brown Whiteley hat we've previously seen at Epsom races and the brown Emmy shoes we've seen before including at the St Patricks Day parade.
A ripple of excitement went up the mile as the Royal family made their way up the Mile, lead by the Queen.
Despite the gloomy weather, crowds were queuing on the Royal Mile from 9.30. And it was an exciting day for me, since this is my hometown and I got my first Kate spot.
