Kate Middleton Cavorts With Puppy, Shovels Dirt

Kate and puppy.

Kate Middleton went on yet another hose-less outing today, this time to visit the Willows Primary School in Manchester, England. When she arrived, she proceeded down her usual receiving line of flower-proffering children, starstruck adults, and even an adorable puppy — a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, so he could probably smell royalty approaching and primly averted his eyes in deference.

Kate meets puppy.

The purpose of Kate's visit was to launch a new counseling program at the school. This involved making a brief speech and delicately sprinkling a shovelful of dirt atop a freshly planted willow tree. One student was so unimpressed with her gardening efforts that he had to look away.

Or maybe he was just trying to be respectful?

To be fair, mucking around in heels on a flowerbed while pregnant takes some doing. Of all the days for her to leave her wedges at home! In other news, her Erdem dress looks very pretty.
