The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge spent their final morning in NYC -- a very rainy morning -- visiting the National September 11 Memorial and Museum before heading off for a packed schedule of engagements. The royal couple first viewed the reflecting pools, laying a bouquet of flowers for those lost.

Within the flowers was a note from William and Kate that read: "In sorrowful memory of those who died on 11th September, and in admiration of the courage shown to rebuild."

The royals then proceeded inside to take a tour of the Museum. The Duchess wore a bright pink Mulberry coat (which has already sold out) today to brace against the cold New York rains, wearing black gloves, tights and pumps with the outfit. She also smartly wore her hair up -- better to fight these Nor'Easter winds and rain. (No, seriously, it's been a downpour all. day.)

After their visit to the Museum, Kate and William went to see how organizations The Door and the City Kids Foundation work together to improve children's lives in NYC. They watched a performance and met many kids who benefit from both foundations.
