New family portraits have been released on the eve of Prince George’s first birthday and we’re absolutely smitten. (what else is new) Though the public is seeing them for the first time, the family portrait, photographed by Press Association photographer John Stillwell, was actually taken a few weeks ago when the Royal family visited Sensational Butterflies exhibition at the National History Museum before heading over to Wimbledon.

Both candid photos show the Royal family in an informal setting, happily observing and pointing out the many butterflies fluttering around. One photo shows the family looking up in the same direction with Georgie adorably reaching into the air, but we can’t stop smiling at the second picture where the trio is sitting on a bench with the curious little prince on Kate Middleton’s lap ready to touch the Blue Morpho butterfly resting on his father’s hand. Honestly, can they be any more perfect? (Nope) Read more »

We all know when it comes to sports, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are big fans, so it’s always nice to see the royal duo come out and support British athletes and sporting events hosted by the United Kingdom. Plus, it gives us an excuse to talk about all things Kate Middleton. This past Saturday, Kate joined Prince William and Prince Harry to kick off the launch of the Tour de France at Harewood House in Leeds. Quite the treat for the competing 22 teams, the royal trio greeted and waved off the anxious riders as they embarked on their 2, 272 mile four-country race that starts off in Leeds and finishes off in Paris. For the day’s event, the Duchess chose a bright green wool coat by Erdem from the Pre-Fall 2014 collection, which we last saw on her during the royal tour Down Under when the Cambridges visited Cambridge. The knee-length tailored coat was worn over a similar hue printed silk dress by Suzannah. Although it was hidden this time, knowing Kate, she’ll recycle this dress in no time. Allowing her coat to be the statement piece, she teamed it with a neutral-coloured clutch by L.K. Bennett and matching patent pumps by the same designer and added a pair of emerald earrings that coordinated accordingly to her outfit, as usual. Read more »

Kate Middleton and Alexander McQueen really are a match made in style heaven. The Duchess of Cambridge showed her love for the label again today during a visit to England’s Bletchley Park. She looked radiant in a white double-breasted blouse and navy skirt from McQueen’s Pre-Fall 2011 collection. Both pieces feature gold fastenings, the skirt with gold anchor-embossed button embellishments. A repeat outfit from 2011, Kate proves once again that she has the military-chic look down to a T.

Her visit marked the completion of a yearlong, £8 million restoration project returning the heritage and education site to its former World War II appearance. A project significant to the Duchess as her grandmother Valerie Glassborow managed the interception of enemy signals during the war at Bletchley. Valerie and her twin sister Mary worked as duty officers in the Cover Management Y section in 1944. Kate met with code breakers who worked with her grandmother and tried intercepting and decoding a Morse code message herself, donning a pair of headphones and using a replica radio. Too cool.

It was quite the Kate Middleton-filled weekend with our favourite royal making three official appearances donning some things old, some things new and some things blue.

In honour of Queen Elizabeth II, the royal family paraded down the streets of London for the Trooping The Colour, The Queen’s annual birthday celebrating complete with 1,400 officers, 200 horses and 400 hundred musicians. While Prince William and Prince Charles rode on horseback, the Duchess of Cambridge accompanied Prince Harry and The Duchess of Cornwall in a horse-drawn carriage waving at crowds of onlookers. Stepping out in a second new outfit of the week, Kate once again opted for Alexander McQueen (it’s her third time wearing the British designer brand at the annual event), looking elegant as ever. Dressed in a bespoke icy blue skirt suit, which featured an embroidered crop jacket, the structured peplum detail stylishly accentuated her slight body. Matching accordingly with a Jane Taylor hat, she added pearl jewellery that including a never-before-seen pearl brooch and pearl-dropped earrings by Annoushka, and finished off with a simple taupe box clutch by Alexander McQueen.

Kate Middleton hits back-to-back events in Jaeger and Alexander McQueen

You know it’s a good week when Kate Middleton has back-to-back official appearances in one day.

Earlier this morning, Kate attended a private breakfast reception at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich to support Britain’s road to winning the oldest sailing competition, America’s Cup, which is led by four-time Olympic champion, Sir Ben Ainslie. In hopes of raising enough money to build a more advanced ship (we hear a whopping £100 million is needed), the Duchess of Cambridge was invited to help raise awareness. And knowing how big of a fan she is of sailing, we bet Kate was more than happy to support the cause. We just hope the topic of Kate beating Prince William at a friendly race during their Australian tour was brought up for a good laugh.

In tune with the day’s event, Kate posed with the America Cup (which travelled in a fancy Louis Vuitton trunk) in a never-before-seen, short-sleeved white dress that features navy blue trimming by Jaeger. (FYI if you’re planning on snatching up the nautical-themed dress for your ever-growing Kate Middleton-inspired wardrobe, chances are, you’re going to have to wait, according to the contemporary British brand’s twitter platform.) As for the rest of her outfit, Kate matched accordingly. While she carried a navy blue suede clutch by Russell & Bromley, she completed her look with suede Alexander McQueen pumps, sapphire and diamond earrings, an Aprey gold charm pendant necklace and a classic Cartier watch.

Kate Middleton may wear many vibrant colours (bright blue being at the top of that list) but we’re quite fond of her other favourite go-to: dove grey. Today she wore two different dresses in shades of grey while out exploring the Uluṟu-Kata Tjuṯa National Park, home of the awe-inspiring Uluru/Ayer’s Rock. While the Duke of Cambridge spent the day in an all-khaki ensemble (fitting for a very hot day spent in the desert) Kate started the day in a custom Roksanda Ilincic dress. The sleeveless, asymmetrical dress is similar to the one Kate wore upon arrivial in Los Angeles in 2011, but less formal in both fabrication and silhouette—making it ideal for an afternoon spent at the National Indigenous Training Academy, watching your husband learn how to handle a two meter long traditional hunting spear.

So much happened in Australia this weekend! When we last saw them on Thursday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince George had just arrived on the continent and the royal trio certainly had a busy Easter weekend. First up, the couple visited the Royal Easter Show in Sydney, where Kate Middleton joked about Prince William using some just-shorn alpaca fur as a toupee—and thus causing a thousand royal reporters around the globe to burst out laughing. The afternoon was spent on the beach, where’s Kate’s wardrobe choice for the day—a cream lace eyelet dress by Zimmermann and Stuart Weitzman wedge sandals—didn’t miss a beat. Though the royals did miss a chance to try surfing… Read more »

Sorry, we’ve been staring at Prince George’s chunky little legs all morning. Even Kate Middleton called him a “very podgy baby” this week (a posh way of saying pudgy, really) and who are we to disagree? That kid has adorable on lock! Which is probably why yesterday the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge spent their last day in New Zealand away from the public, doing their own thing with Baby George. However, today the royal tour is back on, and with it, two new looks from Kate Middleton. Read more »
