Kate Middleton Opens EACH Shop In Tried-And-True M Missoni Coat

I’m a little jealous of the Duchess of Cambridge, aside from the obvious reasons (great hair, fit bod, happily married to a prince).

You see, children, I envy Catherine’s ability to recycle an outfit and make it look brand-new.  Not “gently worn” or “ran a Tide Stick over this grease stain” semi-clean.  No, I mean properly clean properly clean.

Such was the case today, when Catherine recycled her M Missoni coat (an outlet find at Bicester Village) to officially open the new EACH charity shop in Holt, England, near her Anmer Hall home on the Queen’s Sandringham estate.

Underneath the coat, Catherine wore her cornflower blue Zara dress, first seen when she and William left Buckingham Palace the Day after their wedding.

Prince Harry Gives His Best Interview Yet [VIDEO]

Aside from the Duchess of Cambridge, no one has made a bigger impact on the royal family’s reputation than Prince Harry.

Captain Wales, as he was known in the armed forces, graduated from Sandhurst in 2006 and was deployed twice during his ten-year career to Afghanistan.

 

Since joining the army, Harry has been exposed to the casualties of war, and literally sat along side some who suffered life-altering injuries.

The exposure motivated Harry to bring awareness to his injured comrades. So, using his platform as a dashing royal bachelor, the prince joined forces with Walking With The Wounded, an organization that trains wounded vets for extreme treks.  Continue reading

Princess Margaret was Queen Elizabeth’s younger sister and the second daughter of King George VI.

Margarget’s presence was arguably as commanding  (and intimidating) as Her Majesty.  Her life was filled with flash and excitement, and she ran with a very trendy set of people.  The stories of her jewelry are almost as interesting as the life she led.

I’ve asked my favorite jewelry blogger, The Court Jeweller, to explain the stories behind some of Princess Margaret’s jewelry

What is your favorite piece of jewelry owned by Margaret?

It’s so tough to pick one piece! I love the Lotus Flower Tiara, which is now worn by the Duchess of Cambridge, and the gorgeous diamond and sapphire bandeau.

 

But I think I’m going to go with the set of diamond floral brooches given to her by her husband, Lord Snowdon. The set is really versatile and can be worn in lots of various configurations.  Continue reading

On March 14th, Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge attended the annual Commonwealth Observance Day Service in a  grey Erdem coat with lace detailing.

It was the second time in a week I was delighted by Catherine’s sartorial choice; Her March 11th outfit by Eponine was just the kind of POP we royal watchers needed.

What I appreciated about Catherine’s grey look is that she made sure the ensemble wasn’t simply a dowdy piece of fabric that paired nicely with a hat.

Instead, she opted for a darling design that was both appropriate for the occasion and pleasing to fans (or at least some).  Continue reading

To mark Commonwealth Day, the royal family gathered for a service inside Westminster Abbey.

Commonwealth Day allows individuals, communities and organizations to “promote shared Commonwealth values of peace, democracy and equality, and to celebrate the association’s rich diversity. ”

Her Majesty is the head of the Commonwealth, which includes 53 independent and sovereign states.  Some of the countries do not have the Queen as their head of state, but are still considered party of the organization.

Today, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry joined the Queen, Prince Philip and Prince Andrew for the procession.  Continue reading

Call him whatever you’d like, but Prince William did something on February 8th that will leave some critics at a loss for words (if only for a few minutes)

While working with East Anglia Ambulance, William piloted a helicopter sent to pick up 3-year-old Luke Swyer, who suffered an allergic reaction after eating a peanut.

Tthough he remained seated in the cockpit, William blew up a surgical glove and drew a smiley face on it to distract Swyer as doctors treated him.

“We thought it was a really touching thing for Prince William to do as it really took his mind off everything that was going on,” Swyer’s mom, Donna told the TelegraphContinue reading

They come under fire in recent months , particularly Prince William.

Labeled “work-shy” and accused of wanting to be a country gentleman, Prince William has remained quiet about talk that he isn’t fulfilling as many royal duties as his relatives.

Nor is he, reports claim, seriously committed to his job as a pilot with East Anglia Ambulance Services.

“He’s hardly ever on shift,” once source told the Sun.

 

“He was very enthusiastic to begin with but it tailed off. It’s supposed to be four on, four off but with the Duke it’s more off than on.  It’s fine that he gets a bit of special treatment but it’s beginning to really annoy some people. The rumour is that he’s just a bit bored of it.”

On March 7th, the Duke and Duchess released a series of family photos from their private holiday in the Swiss Alps.  Continue reading

Today is cute royal kids day, it seems (one is not complaining).

First, Kensington Palace released family photos of the Cambridges, then this little nugget posed for/slept through his first photocall.

Sweden’s Prince Oscar (born on March 2nd) snoozed as the cameras snapped away at Haga Palace, where the baby prince lives with his older sister, Princess Estelle and parents, Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel.

The Daily Mail confirmed with the Swedish court that Victoria took the photo of her son, much like the Duchess of Cambridge did when Princess Charlotte was born. Continue reading

Cheeeeeeese.

You have to hand it to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge for pulling off a fantastic photo op just as the media was finished tearing Prince William apart.

Many have accused the Duke of being “workshy,” and shirking his royal responsibilities in favor of spending time with his family at their Norfolk, England home.

“No one really wants to admit it openly, but it was the talk of Sandringham over Christmas that he does nothing,” a source told the Sun‘s Emily Andrews last month.

“He wanted to move to Norfolk to give him the life of the gentleman country farmer, like his friends.”

So, William took matters into his own hands and arranged a family photo session in the French Alps last Thursday, reminiscent of the one he, Prince Harry and Prince Charles held in 2005 while skiing in the Klosters.  Continue reading
