It’s a bittersweet trip to Paris for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

The pair’s March stay at the French capitol marks Prince William’s first official visit to the city since his late mother’s fatal car accident in August 1997.

It’s certainly an emotional excursion for the royal couple, but an important occasion for them to face together.

Kate Middleton, for her part, has done an impressive job of carrying on Princess Diana’s legacy when it comes to fashion.

The duchess and her royal beau attended a gala on Friday at the Paris home of British Ambassador Edward Llewellyn.

Middleton stunned at the event in a textured, mermaid-cut black Alexander McQueen gown, which she paired with a set of ankle strap pumps, a bow-adorned leather waist belt, a bold drop pearl necklace, and a pair of complementary oversize pearl studs.

Just like her late mother-in-law, the duchess’s signature style never disappoints.
