Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge speaks with runners after they put a Heads Together headband onto the Kensington Palace post-box in support of the Royal Mail wrapping 70 post-boxes that line the 2017 Virgin Money London Marathon route

Heads Together is the charity sponsor (or whatever you call it) of this year’s London Marathon. Heads Together is the charity-conglomerate that Prince Harry, Prince William and Kate put together, although only Harry is the actual patron of the London Marathon. Still, because so many runners are going to be running for Heads Together, Will and Kate have been doing events around this year’s Marathon. On Wednesday, Kate met with runners at Kensington Palace, and she placed a blue ribbon around the Royal Mail box which designates the marathon route. As in, the route will be marked with those blue ribbons, so the marathon goes past KP.

For the event, Kate kept is casual and I have to say… she looked great. The only criticism I have is so minor, which is that she’s wearing too much makeup for a casual, daytime event. But otherwise, I’m totally fine with her look. Kate rarely wears things that I, a common peasant schlub, would want to wear even if I had Prince Charles’ credit card. But I would love to own this sweater. It’s by Luisa Spagnoli and it retails for $280, so that’s totally out of my price range. Still, it’s super-cute. Kate enjoys striped sweaters, but she usually sticks to blue-and-white stripes, giving her a constant nautical theme. So it’s nice to see her mix it up even with just a minor hint-of-red stripe.

Considering this is a casual, sporty event, I’m not going to bitch about the jeggings, mostly because I’m so relieved that she didn’t pair the jeggings with cork wedges. Look, a sensible shoe choice! And look, she’s even smiling like a normal person at children! Bless her heart, she’s trying.
