Talk about the look of love.
After four days glued at the hip, Kate Middleton and Prince William ended their final night in Germany on a high. The British royals (both 35) put on a stylish display and the closest we’ll get to some royal PDA as they gazed at each other and stayed tight for an evening at the Claerchens Ballhaus dance hall in Berlin.
Throughout her five day tour of Poland and Germany, she has mixing her wardrobe with British, Polish and even Irish designers, but flew the final flag for fashion diplomacy in a printed midi dress by German designer Markus Lupfer, finishing off the look the with a silver chain belt and her new signature pair of strappy wave Prada heels.
It was her third and final look for Thursday, having spent the morning in a yellow Jenny Packham sun dress and the afternoon in jeans and trainers. William opted for his new, stylist-approved laid-back look of blazers and chinos, thanks to stylist Natasha Archer.
While they may have been there as two valuable tools in Brexit’s ‘charm offensive’, they had one thing on their minds last night – Game of Thrones spoilers.
William and Kate chatted to German actor Tom Wlaschiha, who plays Jaqen H’ghar in the cult show and tried to find out what happens next in season seven.
“They said they really liked Game Of Thrones and have watched every series” said Wlaschiha, 44.
“They wanted spoilers but I said I couldn’t tell them. I’m surprised they have time to watch such a long-running series.”
William and Kate revealed their love of Game Of Thrones back in April, when they told Radio 1 DJ Scott Mills that they enjoyed watching box sets of the show and getting a takeaway curry.
The royal couple also chatted to British actor Sam Riley, who lives in Berlin and said they were “very charming”.
Meanwhile German actress Jana Pallaske, who starred in Inglourious Basterds, said: “Kate told me she was really liking Berlin. I think they like the vibe here. It’s wonderful to see someone who carries themselves with so much grace. She is so regal. That is my goal.”
The actors were among guests in the vintage mirrored hall of Berlin’s historic Clarchens Ballhaus, one of Berlin’s last remaining ballrooms, which hosted the British Council reception for exciting new names in the city’s art, culture, style, fashion and technology scene.
The ballroom’s guest relations manager Nils Juergens showed William and Kate around the venue, which opened in 1913 and still offers dancing lessons, as well as being a bar, restaurant and nightclub.
He said: “Kate was joking that William should come here for dancing lessons and they both laughed.
“I told them about the club scene here and William said he would like to try it out.
“He also said he liked my shoes,” he added, pointing at his shiny silver shoes.
“I had been a nervous wreck before they got here but that really broke the ice and put me at my ease. They were very nice and very natural.”
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s five-day tour of Poland and Germany will come to an end later.
William and Kate will visit the Maritime Museum in Hamburg on Friday afternoon to celebrate the joint UK-German year of science, before attending a special performance by a symphony orchestra at the Elbphilarmonie Concert Hall.
The royal couple will then meet apprentices at the city’s Airbus training facilities, before departing for the UK.
Prince George and Princess Charlotte are likely to be seen in public again as the family fly home, a day before George’s fourth birthday.
