The pregnant Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, has been busy as she nears the eight-month mark in her pregnancy. We have the latest on her afternoon with her in-laws and details on what Prince William has been doing this week. Plus, what went down on James and Pippa Middleton's double date? Get the details! On Allie: Rag & Bone tee, Club Monaco blazer.
Already a style favourite, Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, has continued to entrance us with her stylish maternity ensembles. She chose a daffodil-hued Emilia Wickstead coat for her appearance at Queen Elizabeth's annual garden party this week, the bright colour adding to the general glow surrounding the expectant mum.
See close-ups of her sweet ensemble, plus some of our other favourite fashion moments from the duchess, right here. From her stunning teal Jenny Packham gown and Issa wrap dresses to her perfect Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen-designed wedding dress and countless tartan-print coats, it's virtually impossible not to fall a little bit in love with Kate's easy elegance.
Kate Middleton wore a canary yellow coat by Emilia Wickstead to Queen Elizabeth's annual garden party on Wednesday. The pregnant duchess got to spend some quality time with her in-laws, Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, and smiled as she spoke with the guests. Each year, the queen hosts a tea party for 8,000 members of the British public. A reported 270,000 cups of tea are served, as well as thousands of sandwiches and slices of cake. Last year was the first time the Duchess of Cambridge attended the event, where Kate cut a much different figure in a lovely pink dress.
This year, Kate topped her springy coat with a Jane Corbett hat. As she waits for the arrival of her first child and heir to the British throne, the duchess has kept quite busy. Kate attended a friend's wedding over the past weekend, and has been shopping for baby supplies.
Kate Middleton isn't above wearing the same piece twice, and she once again proved that a fashion re-run can still be stylish when she attended a friend's wedding in a familiar Topshop polka-dot dress on May 11. She was first spotted wearing it on her Warner Bros. studio tour back in April. This time, it was the perfect look for the Spring nuptials of Kate's friends William van Cutsem and Rosie Keene, who tied the knot in Ewelme, England. Prince William was also at the bash, where he served as an usher, as was Kate's sister, Pippa Middleton.
The wedding took place while Prince Harry was on his US tour, but now the young royal is back by his brother's side. The two made an official visit to Tidworth, England, yesterday to open four new Help For Heroes recovery centres, which serve wounded service personnel. Kate skipped this event, but that doesn't mean that she hasn't been keeping busy over the past week following her pals' nuptials. Kate has reportedly been taking cooking classes with her new housekeeper, Antonella Fresolone. She also showed off her casual side when she wore sneakers on a shopping trip in London last Tuesday.
Being the Duchess of Cambridge means a lot of public appearances, and while many have been keeping an eye on her growing belly since the announcement that Kate is expecting her and Prince William's first child, we can't stop swooning over her gorgeous hair. And according to a recent poll done by Kérastase, Kate Middleton's mane came out on top as the most coveted hair in Britain. Also, the poll found that women's hair is at its best at age 29, because women have money to spend on their locks. At 31, we think Kate's brunette mane is quite envy-inducing, which we've seen styled with everything from bouncing curls to soft waves, and even bangs. We've rounded up her best blow dry looks over the years. So just keep clicking!
Kate Middleton and Prince William are putting the finishing touches on their new home, and that includes hiring their housekeeper. Will and Kate have hired Antonella Fresolone, one of Queen Elizabeth's housekeepers, to run their abode in Apartment 1A at Kensington Palace, where they will move to in Spring. She is reportedly already helping the expectant couple out by working with them in their current home at Nottingham Cottage. The new housekeeper isn't the only person helping the couple as they prepare for their new baby — Kate went shopping with her mum at an upscale baby store in London back in April, where the two bought a large white basket for the new little royal.
It's a good thing that Kate has been getting help and rounding out her household staff, as she has been busy with work all through her pregnancy, including spending her two-year wedding anniversary with Prince William at a children's hospice. She and William may be expected to dedicate more of their lives to their royal jobs, as there have been rumblings about the prince quitting his job with the Royal Air Force once Kate gives birth. Either way, the two won't have Prince Harry around to help out over the next week since he is gearing up for a tour of the United States beginning tomorrow.
Between new haircuts, updated styles, slicked locks and lots of ombré, hair certainly stole the show in this week's celebrity beauty round-up. Nicole Richie set the pace with her first official appearance since she took a trip down fringe lane (hubby Joel Madden didn't notice — ah, men), while Kate Middleton mixed things up with wavier hair than usual (not to mention that pregnancy glow). But it wasn't all about hair. Isla Fisher totally stole the show at The Great Gatsby world premiere, thanks to her bright red lips and cats-eye liner — see that look and more when you click through!
Kate Middleton, also known as the Duchess of Cambridge, has stolen our hearts with her flawless, classic style, her flair for fabulous fascinators, and, of course, the exciting news of her pregnancy. For her latest royal appearance — a visit to the Naomi House Children's Hospice in London — Kate paired a peach-coloured Tara Jarmon coat with a shiftdress, also in a pretty shade of peach. See close-ups of her sweet ensemble, plus some of our other favourite fashion moments from the duchess, right here. From her stunning teal Jenny Packham gown and Issa wrap dresses to her perfect Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen-designed wedding dress and countless tartan-print coats, it's virtually impossible not to fall a little bit in love with Kate's easy elegance. Don't forget to see Kate Middleton and Prince William's most stylish moments — yesterday marked their two-year wedding anniversary!
It's been two years since Prince William and Kate Middleton said "I do" with the whole world watching. Since then a lot has changed for the royal couple, including the announcement that Kate is expecting their first child. But with all this change, there is one thing that has always stayed the same: Kate's envy-inducing hair. We've rounded up her best blow dry looks over the years.
If there's one couple we (always) keep close style tabs on, it's definitely Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. Yesterday, the royal pair celebrated their second wedding anniversary, and while it feels like yesterday that we were floored by her custom Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen wedding dress, their second year as husband and wife has been filled with superchic — not to mention, monumental — moments for both. While Kate has become a master of high-low styling, favouring everything from Topshop and Whistles to Jenny Packham and Alexander McQueen, William is just as good at donning a cool mix of dapper suits and more casual fare. Lest we forget, the couple is expecting their first child in July, which means we're on baby bump watch, too! To fete William and Kate's wedding anniversary, we've rounded up their best fashion moments in the two years since tying the knot. Here are more than 150 photos to commemorate.
