Kate Middleton proved that a royal title doesn’t take away from her motherly duties. The Duchess and Princess Charlotte were stuck in traffic when they made a quick exit of the vehicle and headed into a local pub to use the loo. The royals, accompanied by a plain-clothed detective, entered the bar to the astonishment of local patrons.
A regular of the establishment, Maggie McKinney, told the Daily Mail that she was shocked to look up from her usual seat at the bar and see “the Duchess of Cambridge and her daughter.” She added that they “went to the toilet and then trotted out. They seemed totally normal.”
Kate Middleton was spotted—alongside the Queen—looking very festive in a glittering custom dress at the annual holiday reception at Buckingham Palace. Along with the modest white gown, Kate donned a diamond bracelet and the gorgeous Lover’s Knot tiara, which belonged to Princess Diana.
If the reports of Prince William’s wife trying to out-style her new royal sister-in-law—Megan Markle—are true, she is definitely headed in the right direction.
The Kate Middleton-Meghan Markle feud appears to be Fake News. Amid mounting tabloid reports of tense moments between members of the Fab Four, Kensington Palace released a rare statement of denial.
In response to an article published by The Sun, Kensington Palace said an “explosive row” that allegedly happened between Kate and Meghan “never happened.”
Rumors of a feud began when Kensington Palace announced that Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan would be moving out of the palace complex and relocate to Frogmore Cottage at Windsor Castle.
Tabloids jumped on the news, saying the couple was moving away from Prince William and Duchess Kate instead of the truth—the newlyweds simply need more room for their growing family.
Kate Middleton is stepping up her style game. According to royal sources, the Duchess is attending more events and paying more attention to her looks—wardrobe, hair, jewelry and make-up. The mom of 3 wants to be more visible now that Meghan Markle has been commanding the spotlight.
Kate’s style change comes on the heels of reports stating there is tension between her and Meghan as well as between Prince William and Prince Harry.
There has been no comment from Kensington Palace on the Duchess’ new look or the rumored feuds.
Kate Middleton paid tribute to Princess Diana at a state dinner on Tuesday night. The Duchess wore one of Diana’s tiaras—the Lover’s Knot—at the event she attended with Prince William. Kate, who has worn this tiara to other royal functions, added pearl earrings that also belonged to the late Princess Di. People reports that the Lover’s Knot tiara is over 100-years-old and belongs to Queen Elizabeth, but originally was made for Queen Mary in 1914. Diana was gifted the tiara when she married Prince Charles and returned the crown to the Queen when the two separated.
Kate Middleton embarked on her first royal engagement since giving birth. The mom of three visited the Sayers Croft Forest School and “went on a walk through the woods” and “helped children make leaf crowns”. The Duchess made a lasting impression on one little girl who opted for a hug instead of the formal handshake that was being offered. Of course, Kate took the gesture in stride and it made for a “royally” adorable moment.
Kate Middleton’s younger brother, James Middleton, has a new job. The youngest Middleton is now a tour guide at sister Pippa Middleton’s father-in-law’s Scotland resort—the Glen Affric Estates. It is—according to their website—one of the “most beautiful places in Scotland”. Known for its outdoorsy activities, James has been seen hanging out with guests and wearing hunting gear. He recently told a magazine that he is happiest in the countryside and will be moving his four dogs to Glen Affric. While some people recognize him for being a sibling to his famous sisters, James does not enjoy the spotlight. He gave an interview where he called the attention “frustrating” and that “at the end of the day”, he is “just James”.
