THE Duchess of Cambridge displayed a fine eye for detail today by wearing a pair of the Queen's pearl earrings to view one of Holland's most famous paintings - Girl with a Pearl Earring.
In what appeared to be a carefully choreographed piece of royal theatre, Kate paid homage to the work by the 17th century Dutch artist Johannes Vermeer, which inspired a 2003 film starring Colin Firth, Scarlett Johansson, and Cillian Murphy.
It was, she told fans, her favourite painting in the Mauritshuis gallery in The Hague which she toured during a day of engagements in the Netherlands on her first solo overseas tour.
In a pale blue Catherine Walker skirt suit, she flew the flag for Britain with our third most important trading partner - the two nations do £68 billion of business with each other a year - a day after Prime Minister Theresa May went to Holland in an effort to lay the ground for a favourable Brexit deal and new relationship with Holland outside the European Union.
