Prince Charles Page 1
The red carpet at the U.K. premiere of Skyfall was as star-studded as it gets, but the spotlight was definitely on Prince Charles and Camilla. Royals on the red carpet!
The last time Kate Middleton got all athletic, she
kicked her husband’s butt played field hockey in coral jeans and a gray hoodie. This time around, she opted for a pretty dress and wedges to play soccer, start a judo match, and dabble in ping pong with Prince William, Prince Charles, and a group of teenagers. And she obviously looked great.
Prince Charles, who will soon reveal his financials to the public for the first time since the royal wedding, has divulged that Kate’s clothes have cost $54,440 this year alone — and it’s only June.
Queen Elizabeth has updated the Order of Precedence, which lists the hierarchy within the Royal Household, and the change affects our precious Kate Middleton.
Today marks the start of the Royal Ascot, a five-day
hat horse race. The royal family (minus Prince William, Prince Harry, and Kate Middleton), notable Brits, and other Brits headed to Berkshire to watch animals run around, but we’ve got our eyes on their toppers.
Another day, another fancy royal event.
It has come to our attention that we’ve been doing you a disservice, dear readers.
All this time we’ve been spending documenting every matching coat, hat, and bauble of Queen Elizabeth and Kate Middleton, and we’ve completely neglected one of the most fashionable royals around: Prince Charles!
We love when Kate Middleton — or Duchess Catherine, if you will — does stuff. We love when she rows boats. We love when she paints. Yes, it’s weird, but it’s also oddly fascinating. Kate’s latest activity? Field hockey.
Remember how Prince William and Kate Middleton said they wanted to live a low-key life with not that many servants? Well now that we know the extent of some of those servants’ duties, we understand why. A new expose about the British royal family written by one of its former servants details all of the peculiar, unfortunate and downright weird things the royal wardrobe minders have to do every day.
Just when we thought Prince Harry couldn’t get any cuter, we see a video of him as a baby. And yeah, toddler Prince William is pretty cute, too.
The hat-filled festivities just won’t quit! For the third day in a row the royal family has turned out in formal duds and fancy headwear. First we had Queen Elizabeth‘s birthday procession, then Prince Philip‘s birthday service and reception, and now the Garter Day ceremony.
Yesterday the royal family celebrated Queen Elizabeth II‘s 85th birthday with a fancy procession at Buckingham Palace. Today they celebrated Prince Philip‘s 90th birthday with a church service and reception at Windsor Castle. This was certainly not as fancy, but a church service means church hats!
We have to admit Kate and Prince William were super cool about letting us obsess about the royal wedding. Photographers and videographers were granted some pretty sick access during the ceremony, but we wanted to see the party! Queen Elizabeth‘s reception sounded nice and all (that cake!), but the evening reception thrown by Prince Charles sounded amazing. As such, we’ve rounded up every bit of info we could about the Buckingham Palace affair.
We knew Kate would wear two different dresses, and now the second one has been revealed! Just like her stunning bridal gown, Kate’s evening ensemble was also designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen.
If the royal wedding is good for anything (and it is good for lots of things!), it’s getting the whole royal family together so that they can be royally royal all in the same place! So many princes, and even more princesses! And some queens! No kings though. Hmmmm.
We don’t know why, and we don’t know how, but at some point in 1980 the Prince of Wales was offered a breakdancing lesson from a group of young kids in a club, which he graciously accepted and took in a rather spectacularly cut gray suit. And the weird thing is, dude wasn’t half bad.
When he’s not doing whatever it is that the world’s royalty does all day, Prince Charles is worrying about wool. The price of the fabric has dropped pretty steadily over the past decade, and in order to raise awareness of that problem, His Royal Highness helped organize London’s first Wool Week.
If we had to make a list of people from whom we’d take fashion advice, we can guarantee that Prince Charles would not be on it. Which is why its fascinating to read that he penned an article in this month’s British Vogue offering his own sartorial tips on vintage clothing, wool, and how fashion can save the planet.
