Who said that royalty is afraid to brave the elements? If Prince William and wife Kate Middleton are to be examples, then we can say that royalty is pretty game. The royal couple was sighted over the weekend at the UK premiere of the movie War Horse. In spite of the rain, Kate Middleton looked absolutely stunning in her Alice Temperley gown – floor-length and all! Then again, she probably didn’t have to actually go out in the rain and had carpeting wherever she walked.

War Horse was released earlier in the United States. Set in World War I times, the movie is about a young man named Albert. After his beloved horse, Joey, gets sold to the cavalry, he decides to enlist in the army. The reviews are not stellar, but it has gotten many nominations.

In any case, Kate Middleton and Prince William seemed to be delighted that they were at the premiere. The Prince looked the doting husband, complete with an umbrella worthy of a royal couple.

While that appearance is anything but low key – the couple were certainly the focus of attention, maybe second only to Joey the horse – other rumors say that Kate Middleton’s upcoming 30th birthday celebration is going to be a quiet one. The grapevine has been busy, with a lot of speculation about how lavish the Duchess of Cambridge’s big 3-0 celebration would be, but it seems that this duchess is not going to go down that road.

If she can survive a little rain, I am sure she can hack a “low key” party!
