Dippy's replacement at the Natural History Museum is in place

Kate, who styled her new short 'do in loose curls, wore a pale blue Preen dress by designer Thornton Bregazzi and sky-high Prada sandals with wavy straps that she first wore during her royal tour of India previous year.

During her solo visit, Kate, who stunned in a glittering tiara at a state banquet Wednesday night, saw the unveiling of the London museum's latest attraction - a giant blue whale skeleton.

Kate's glow was the flawless accessory, and she chose to forgo any jewellery every or a tiara for the Museum's Gala event.

She said her children love the museum "and not just for the dinosaurs" as she unveiled the 25.2 metre-long whale skeleton, which is suspended from the ceiling and appears to be diving above the newly reopened hall.

She said she hoped the new exhibit could do the same for visitors, and "encourage us all to think about and to care for our marine life".

DMX Charged With Fourteen Counts of Tax Evasion
The Party Up (Up in Here) star is facing up to 44 years in federal prison if he is found guilty on all 14 counts. His gross income for each of those years were $353,000, $542,000 and $250,000, respectively.

Hope is now centre stage in Hintze Hall, along with 10 other "wonder bay" exhibits that represent the history of the Earth.

Its position in the main entrance hall is created to be a "powerful reminder of the fragility of life and the responsibility humans have towards protecting our planet", said museum director Michael Dixon.

Hintze Hall is due to reopen to the public on Friday following six months of refurbishment, and its displays will include a dinosaur fossil - an 120 million-year-old Mantellisaurus, found on the Isle of Wight in 1917.

It will be surrounded by other some rather incredible specimens too, including a 4.5bn year-old meteorite and a Mantellisaurus skeleton.
