CHAIR TO THE THRONE: The Duchess of Cambridge joined artist and potter Grayson Perry and opened The Clore Art Room at the Barlby Primary School in London on Thursday. The studio is managed by The Art Room, a charity that both support. The duchess and Perry met with the young artists, and the former was presented with a small chair made by the Ladbroke Grove students for Prince George. The pregnant royal showed a hint of baby bump in a navy Madderson London shift dress made with Hainsworth fabric. The “Kate effect” was in full force and impacted the designer’s website causing it to crash. This marks the Kate’s first official engagement this year since attending the Christmas mass with the royal family.
