The Duchess of Cambridge and the Queen have always had a close relationship, with Kate speaking about Her Majesty’s caring nature during an interview to mark her 90th birthday in 2016. With the duchess set to be William’s Queen Consort when he takes the throne in future, she’s got a good mentor in the 92-year-old monarch. Kate began dating William at university in 2003 and she reportedly met the Queen for the first time at Peter and Autumn Phillips’ wedding in 2008. William proposed in November 2010 and the couple were married in April 2011, when the Queen gave them the titles of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Kate and Her Majesty had their first official engagement together in Leicester in March 2012, to mark the first date of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee tour of the UK. Before that, they viewed Kate’s Alexander McQueen wedding dress on display at a Buckingham Palace exhibition. Since then, they’ve hosted receptions at the palace together and have been present on the famous balcony for annual events such as Trooping the Colour. They also enjoyed a girls day out together with Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall in 2012, when they visited London’s Fortnum & Mason. The Duchess of Cambridge appears to have taken some style lessons from Her Majesty, favouring block coloured shift dresses and bold coats. She’s even borrowed jewellery from the royal vaults, including tiaras, brooches and earrings. Take a look at Kate and the Queen’s best moments together over the years.
Kate Middleton's modern makeover continued on Tuesday morning as she stepped out to visit the Henry Fawcett Children's Centre in Kennington wearing a pair of wide-leg trousers and a statement shirt. The engagement is the second time the Duchess of Cambridge has ditched royal-appropriate dresses for the smart trouser shape, the first time was during a trip to Cyprus in December 2018. Although seeing Kate in a contemporary trouser is rare, the duchess styled the Jigsaw item perfectly, offsetting the androgynous bottom half with a feminine pussy-bow shirt.
Rumours of a rift between the Cambridges and Sussexes have been circulating since the end of last year. Royal editor Robert Jobson explains why he thinks there may be some truth to the speculation of a row between Kate and Meghan on Yahoo UK's video series 'The Royal Box.' Jobson also speaks about the alleged row over Meghan's choice of tiara in the lead-up to her wedding day and her reportedly 'difficult' behaviour.
It's difficult to spend a day on social media without coming across one of the British royals, particularly Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton. It turns out that the Duchesses not only have a different sense of style, they also attract different emoji reactions on Twitter.
