Horizon: Dippy and the Whale; Who Do You Think You Are?

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

Replacing its predecessor and visitor favorite - a Diplodocus dinosaur affectionately known as Dippy - the massive female blue whale named Hope recently became the museum's main exhibit, serving as a "symbol of humanity's power to shape a sustainable future".

A semi-sheer lace neckline and sleeves, the gown featured one of the lowest necklines we've seen worn by the Duchess and provided an inevitable talking point.

Joining Sir David Attenborough to unveil the Natural History Museum's new blue whale feature, you'd be forgiven for thinking Kate had slipped back into her old ways at first glance. In the same year, the United Kingdom brought in a law that protected them from commercial hunting, and today the population has grown to around 20,000.

The museum bought the skeleton and initially displayed it in the Mammal Hall in 1934, where it was suspended above a real-size model of a blue whale - however, it was not in full view.

The people liked Kate Middleton's appearance and her speech, undoubtedly, she is the most elegant patron of the Natural History Museum ever.

Dressed in a pale blue A-line dress with short sleeves, Middleton opted for no jewelry for the occasion, but paired her looked with black Prada strappy heels.

"Whales are incredibly mysterious and behaviourally complex creatures, as well as being the giants of the ocean".

All alone in Hintze Hall, the blue whale skeleton which is being unveiled to the great and good at the Natural History Museum.

"In her stunning new home, she is even more spectacular".

Hintze Hall will reopen to the public on Friday following six months of refurbishment.

He's been on display since 1979, but now he's going on a tour around the UK.

Britain's Duchess of Cambridge (35) might be one of the most stylish women in the world, but her personal style is predictable.

Hintze Hall used to be called the Central Hall.
