Yesterday, the world lost its greatest figure of peace and equality, Nelson Mandela. The South African anti-apartheid leader died at 95-years-old after several years of fragile health. While the tragic news of his death broke, Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom, a film that tells his life story, was screening in London.
Emilia Jardine-Paterson, who was recently named Prince George’s godmother, is behind Kate Middleton’s looks seen round the world.
In case Kate Middleton’s Alexander McQueen moment didn’t give you enough of a style fix, the Duchess of Cambridge attended the 100 Women in Hedge Funds event last night at Kensington Palace and had yet another Jenny Packham moment.
Dare we say that Prince George looks darling in a gown? The heir to the thrown looked absolutely adorable in Prince William’s arms. while his mother, Kate Middleton, looked ravishing at their side.
Kate Middleton left Prince George at home for a few hours to visit young athletes at London’s Olympic Park for the charity SportsAid. In her typical fashion, the Duchess of Cambridge recycled some of her favorite staples for the occasion wearing a Smyth one button blazerlazer, Ralph Lauren sweater, J Brand Jeans, and Stuart Weitzman for Russell and Bromley Corkswoon wedges.
Breaking: Kate Middleton is even more down-to-earth than we thought. As the Duchess of Cambridge, she has personal shoppers at her disposal and luxury department stores just waiting to shutdown their entire establishment to the public for her, and yet, Middleton would rather blithely peruse Reiss’s 60 perfect off rack.
Hot on the heels of attending Jenny Packham’s spring show — which was packed with Duchess-worthy confections — Kate Middleton traded in her polka dots in favor of a pale gold sequin evening gown with crystal motif by the Brit designer for the inaugural Tusk Awards. Considering that it was her much-anticipated first black tie moment since giving birth to Prince George, we think that Middleton delivered.
Kate Middleton and Prince William have made their first public appearance since the birth of Prince George to attend the Ring O’ Fire Coastal Ultra Marathon in Anglsey – in other words, everything is right in our world now that we can again expect K-Mid sightings on the regular (our day-to-day has been quite humdrum without her).
Kensington Palace has unveiled the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s first official family portrait. In the images, which were photographed by Kate Middleton’s father Michael Middleton at the Middleton family estate, the new mother cradles her royal bundle of joy, Prince Baby George, with a glowing Prince William by her side.
The Royal Family has finally put our anxiety at ease and announced that Kate Middleton will return to her public duties on September 12.
We suspect the throngs of Soho tourist’s might have been fooled into thinking Queen Elizabeth in town, what with all the Queens Guards and Union Jack mini coups parked on Broadway yesterday evening. However, the commotion was not for her majesty but rather for the launch of the Banana Republic x Issa London collaboration, where we were invited to pre-shop the collection while sipping on champagne (this was just as dangerous as it sounds).
You can’t buy Kate Middleton’s custom Jenny Packham hospital dress, but you will be able to buy the Issa blue wrap dress she wore when she announced her engagement to Prince William back in 2010. At least you will if you have no other plans for the morning of August 8 and aren’t opposed to having physical altercations with other women on the shop floor of Banana Republic.
Finally, the moment everyone was waiting for after the real moment everyone was waiting for arrived and we got to first lay our eyes on the royal baby prince. Proving they’re ever the awe-inducing couple, Kate Middleton and Prince William left St. Mary’s Hospital wearing matching powder blue as they introduced their son to the world.
Kate Middleton is in labor, and while we’re not amongst the herds of paparazzi and royal worshipers perched outside of St. Mary’s Hospital in London, we’re still very much a part of the pandemonium across the pond. While the world awaits news of the royal baby’s gender (and omg the name!), we’d like to imagine what the Duchess is wearing whilst in labor. Because let’s face it, there’s no such thing as a hospital gown fit for a princess (but if there is, we think we might have found it).
Now that the highly-anticipated due date has arrived, we that hear London has been invaded with “Born to Rule” onesies. Here’s the thing, we don’t care how much pandemonium London is experiencing, there is no way the royal baby would be caught dead in such an ill-bred style. With Kate Middleton for a mom, style will be ingrained in its royal DNA. But don’t worry, it won’t be all fashion snobbery from the heir to the throne.
Now that Kate Middleton’s been pregnant for approximately three years, there’s finally a royal birth on the horizon! And the horizon is close – her due date is this Saturday, to be precise.
Kate Middleton ventured seaside for her last solo royal engagement, the Princess Cruises ship naming ceremony, before the birth of her baby. She marked the occasion by popping Moët (no, she didn’t drink it. The bottle was smashed against a ship in what we can only assume is some kind of British nautical tradition). But we digress — her look! Kate donned a £169 dalmatian print shift coat by British high street mainstay Hobbs, and topped off the ensemble with — what else? — a black fascinator.
Hello, hello, and helllloooo.
Karl Lagerfeld might be the one with an entire book dedicated to his quotes, but Roberto Cavalli certainly rivals the Kaiser’s unapologetic candor. You might recall that instance in which Cavalli insulted Anna Wintour, Vogue, and Louis Vuitton all in one fell Twitter rant. Let’s face it, the designer’s not one to filter.
The future King or Queen of England is due to arrive sometime next month, but in the meantime, we get to enjoy the last of Kate Middleton’s impeccable maternity style. Today, the Duchess attended a service celebrating the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation, and she glowed in a shift dress and matching coat that accommodated her now very visible bump.
