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 »

Time flies when you’re a trendsetting prince. Tomorrow marks the first birthday of the cutest royal family member (sorry, Harry) and to get everyone excited for the big day, the royals released an official birthday photo of little Prince George. Sporting blue striped dungarees and a subtle smile the photo shows the toddler walking around the “Sensational Butterflies” exhibition at the Natural History Museum in London. Over the past year, George has become quite the style icon, following in his mom’s footsteps of nautical and bright colours. To celebrate this memorable day, we’ve pulled together his most stylish outfits over the past year. Get ready for cute overload!

Third in line to the royal throne, the young Prince George has already accomplished a lot, all before his first birthday. From touring Australia and New Zealand to accompanying his family to charity polo matches, his agenda has been stacked with royal outings. Prince George has already mastered the overall trend, and he’s got monochrome down to a T. Plus, he’s always donning the cutest footwear from stores such as Trotters and Childrensalon, putting his navy Pre-Walkers in short supply.

Find out which celebrity ponytail hairstyle you should try »

Like braids, the ponytail has been around for as long as we can remember. While this look may seem like the boring option when it comes to choosing a updo (after all, it is a go-to hairstyle for bad hair days and the gym), celebrities have shown us that this ‘do is anything but boring. Find it hard to believe? We’ve rounded up 10 celebrity ponytail hairstyles that work for everything from running errands to going all-out glam. And to show you that there is a ponytail for everyone out there, we went ahead and matched a personality to each style, because we care.

For the bombshells out there, Laura Vandervoort’s sleek ponytail is the look you should go for when you’re heading out for date night. Invited to a high school reunion and want to show off your unbelievable confidence? Who better than to channel Blake Lively’s Amazonian braid and ponytail hybrid for the ultimate professional-chic look? And if you just want to take a cue from Cara Delevingne and work an It Girl attitude, then her messy high pony is one you need to try. Whoever coined the term “let your hair” down clearly never laid eyes on any of these chic and easy hairdos. Here are 10 celebrity ponytail hairstyles we love. 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 cleverly recycles old favourites for this week’s charity and Wimbledon visits


Kate Middleton Place2Be Goat

See this week in Kate Middleton style »

After a few steady appearances of new pieces, Kate Middleton was back to old favourites for her two latest royal appearances. Yesterday, the Duchess of Cambridge paid a visit to Blessed Sacrament School in London to meet with program coordinators of Place2Be’s (the leading UK provider of school-based mental health support) Moving Parents and Children Together program, as well as greet and chat with many of the young students. For the event, Kate cleverly recycled a coral-pink Goat dress, worn recently underneath a red wool Jonathan Saunders coat. It was refreshing to see the Duchess opt for a different colour palette this time around, with her last few appearances all being shades of blue. Going for a similar look to her Scotland visit (sans coat, of course), she complemented the coral dress with a pair of nude pumps by Jimmy Choo and carried a woven straw clutch by L.K. Bennett. In the jewellery department, she kept it rather simple with her classic Cartier watch and an oldie but goodie: a pair of sterling silver effervescence bubble stiletto earrings by Links of London.

The more you know: Kate Middleton’s grandmother was a wartime code breaker!

Kate Middleton Bletchley Park

See this look in our Kate Middleton style gallery »

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.
