COWBOY CHIC: As the royal couple reached the final leg of their Canadian tour Thursday in Calgary, the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William were both game for experimenting with local cowboy accessories. Calgary’s mayor Naheed Nenshi presented the couple with white ten gallon hats before they took in a rodeo to launch the Calgary Stampede rodeo festival. Naturally, the duchess made the best of the novelty topper, pairing it with an Alice by Temperley embroidered Western-style blouse and Goldsign boot-cut jeans. Earlier in the day, she went for a more classic princess look, sporting a Jenny Packham tea dress in primrose yellow silk crepe with a softly pleated skirt and a blouson top. The dress is a bespoke piece, a spokeswoman for the label said.
