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.
Meghan Markle got a haircut and fans are wondering why they weren’t included in the decision. In the midst of being pregnant and her jam-packed November schedule, the Duchess got her locks trimmed; the new do was revealed at the Remembrance Day Sunday service last weekend. The mom-to-be may have picked up the idea of keeping the beauty decision a secret from something Prince Harry’s late mother used to do. Princess Diana was so scrutinized for every decision she made, that she would get her hair cut in discrete quarter-inch sections to avoid “being front-page news.”
Prince Charles may be the most pampered person ever. In a documentary “Serving the Royals: Inside the Firm,” the future King of England has everything done for him…EVERYTHING. According to Princess Diana’s former butler, Paul Burrell who was interviewed for the documentary, the pampered prince has his pajamas pressed every morning, his shoe laces pressed flat with an iron, and one inch of toothpaste is the exact amount that must be squeezed on his toothbrush. The 69-year-old probably even has someone assigned to wipe his Royal Derriere.
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.
