Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie's first joint Royal engagement ended successfully today as flag-waving children turned out to greet them in the rain.

Following in the footsteps of their father Prince Andrew - dubbed 'Airmiles Andy' because of all his free flights when he was UK trade envoy - the princesses were there to launch the Great Britain Mini tour across Germany.

The trip showcased the very best of British, from culture and technology to music and innovation, and ended with a trip to Hanover today for the re-opening of Schloss Herrenhausen, the city’s palace which has finally been rebuilt after it was destroyed by allied bombardment in 1943.

British VOGUE: Katepedia, A Study in Royal Style

To celebrate the style evolution of a modern royal icon, this month Vogue, with writer Lisa Armstrong, set itself the task of analysing her every outfit, shoe and accessory to divine the vital statistics of Kate's style.

We pored over thousands of pictures, and probed her favourite designers to find her favourite neckline, sleeve length and silhouette, the secret of that dazzling smile, the hidden value of her "down-to-earth" glamour - and just how she might adapt her McQueen as maternity wear.

 "Both she and William share a genius from coming across as down-to-earth -with just enough glamour for them not to look like the Dutch royals," writes Armstrong. "It's the same knack that enables Kate to wear a high-fashion dress from Jonathan Saunders or McQueen, with her beloved courts and make millions of other women feel they could wear it too."

Harrods: Royal Engagement Wrap Dress. The Duchess of Cambridge's iconic engagement dress by Issa. Crafted from pure silk, the wrap over panels at the waist will provide a truly flattering fit.

The Queen is understood to be making plans to hand over to the couple one of the most charming properties in her portfolio: Anmer Hall, in Norfolk, where Prince William spent many happy days during his childhood.

“The house has been earmarked for William and Kate,” said a source on the Sandringham estate.

Since their wedding, the couple have made a rented farmhouse on Anglesey their home. Nottingham Cottage, a one-bedroom apartment at Kensington Palace, has been their London pied-à-terre.

The “cosy” cottage, where the Duke is required to “stoop” to avoid hitting his head on the low ceilings, will become Prince Harry’s home.
