The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry have released a series of hard-hitting films as part of their mental health campaign, Heads Together. Hoping to open up the conversation surrounding mental health, the ten videos feature both famous and non-famous people talking to the person they first opened up to. Issues including depression, anorexia and post-traumatic stress disorder are all mentioned.
The Duchess of Cambridge’s second National Portrait Gallery gala was a star-studded one. The stylish royal was joined by a host of famous faces including Alexa Chung and one of Kate’s favourite designers, Erdem Moralioglu. Kate chose a classic green lace gown by Temperley London for the occasion.
Last week, the Palace revealed that Prince George will be starting at Thomas’s school in Battersea in September. The news came as a surprise as many believed the little prince would follow in his father’s footsteps and attend Wetherby Pre-preparatory in Notting Hill. For daily school life, George will require a navy jacket, polo neck and shorts.
The Duchess of Cambridge's wardrobe cost £174,000 last year. From Chanel to Alexander McQueen, here's a few of the priciest items she owns.
It only seems like yesterday that the Duchess of Cambridge was leaving hospital with a baby Prince George in her arms, but his royal cuteness is all set to start school in September and it’s just been announced which school he’ll be attending. The three-year-old is set to be enrolled at the Private Thomas’s School in Battersea, South London. Something that should suit the lively Prince perfectly.
Despite security fears after the attack on Westminster, the Duchess of Cambridge carried on with her work duties as planned. Yesterday afternoon, Kate attended yet another mental health engagement as part of her, William and Harry’s Heads Together initiative. In a rare speech, Kate gave personal details of her own struggles with parenting: “Personally, becoming a mother has been such a rewarding and wonderful experience.
It’s hardly surprising that Kate Middleton opted for green today. Complete with green suede court shoes, the Duchess has gone to visit the St Patrick’s Day parade in what might be her most gorgeous green ensemble yet. Middleton has opted for an emerald green tailored coat with contrast sleeves, collar and pockets along with gold buttons.
St Patrick’s Day is a key event in the Duchess of Cambridge’s calendar. For six years now, Kate’s been a regular fixture at the UK’s celebrations, handing out sprigs of shamrocks to the Irish Guards in Aldershot. The mum-of-two skipped the event last year to spend time with Prince George and Princess Charlotte before jetting off on the royal tour of India and Bhutan, but she’ll be back at a military base this week before flying to Paris for a weekend in the French capital with Prince William. On Friday, Kate’s set to visit the Irish Guards in Hounslow at the Cavalry Barracks.
For the dedication and unveiling of an Iraq and Afghanistan memorial in London today, Kate Middleton was spotted wearing a tweed – and long-standing favourite – coat of hers. Like the Queen, Middleton opted for a blue outfit instead of the perhaps too-formal black, and matched her lighter outerwear with a navy blue wide-brimmed hat along with colour-matching gloves and suede court shoes. The flared (but fitted) Michael Kors coat is one she’s worn to another memorial previously; Australia and New Zealand’s remembrance day in April 2014.
Royal Ascot is always a tricky event to attend. With so many fashion rules, it can be difficult – nigh impossible – to find an outfit that sticks to the event’s strict dress code. The race event has barely swayed from its formal dress code since its inception 304 years ago.
A hairstyle is just one of the many ways that we express ourselves – a way to create a strong look for ourselves that alludes to our character. From the ‘Rachel’ to the ‘pob’, there have been a plethora of iconic hairdos debuted by famous faces over the years that thousands of people have copied.
The Duchess of Cambridge is back at work after a jam-packed evening at Buckingham Palace. Last night’s sparkle-infused look was replaced with more work-appropriate attire as Kate visited a children’s hospital this morning. The Duchess chose a blue tweed skirt suit by Rebecca Taylor for the occasion which featured fashion-forward fringing and subtle metallic thread.
Last night saw Buckingham Palace lit up with Indian motifs to celebrate the beginning of the UK-India Year of Culture. A reception held by the Queen and Prince Philip saw guests from the country mix with other royals including William and Kate.
It’s hard to forget that navy blue dress we first saw on the soon-to-be Duchess of Cambridge back in 2010. Kate Middleton and Prince William had announced their engagement, and while plenty had all of our thoughts directed on (of course) the ring, a certain $535 (£430) dress was garnering most of our attention. Thus Issa quickly became an iconic label.
Kate has quickly risen to become a British style icon, favouring flattering designs from the likes of Erdem and Preen. This isn’t a usual for the royal family. Cast your mind back to the 1940s and the days of Christian Dior’s cosy relationship with the British monarchy. The Parisian designer’s New Look and theatrical shows were so well-loved by the Queen that she arranged a private appointment for several members of the royal family at The Savoy.
As one of the most photographed women in the world, Kate Middleton is used to having to strike a pose. Kate, who is royal patron and Honorary Air Commandant of the RAF Air Cadets, was on a visit to RAF Wittering to meet local air cadets.
The Duchess of Cambridge’s Valentine’s Day plans were unveiled at the beginning of this month and true to her word, Kate has not spent the day with husband William. Instead, she visited an RAF base near Peterborough to meet young Air Cadets taking part in a skills development camp.
Kensington Palace have announced that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be making a short visit to Paris next month. The news comes at an apt time as it is almost 20 years since William’s mother, Princess Diana, died in a tragic car accident in the French capital. Although the Prince has been to Paris for non-official visits, this will be his first official mini-tour since his mother’s death in August 1997.
The Duchess of Cambridge’s attendance at the BAFTAs may have been up in the air but her appearance was well worth the wait. The royal couple were the last to arrive at this year’s star-studded awards, opting for an intricate black gown by one of her favourite designers, Alexander McQueen.
Balancing smart and colourful as always, the Duchess of Cambridge sported a magenta skirt suit during an outing on Monday evening. The 35-year-old royal wore the Oscar de la Renta piece to a conference of health writers yesterday, and though it was indeed a bright colour choice – and above the knee – it was also appropriately chic. The peplum jacket along with the box-pleated skirt wasn’t too different from the Duchess’ previous outfit that day, which comprised a bright-red two piece featuring a pencil skirt.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are busy at work again today, just 24 hours after taking part in marathon training with Prince Harry. It is part of the duo’s (and Prince Harry’s) Heads Together initiative which aims to open up the conversation surrounding mental health.
