The Duchess of Cambridge, Catherine Middleton made her first appearance after the recent exciting news of Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle’s royal engagement news.
Catherine, The Duchess of Cambridge recently went on her first ever Solo Trip to the Netherlands on a one-day trip without her husband, Prince William.
It is her first time travelling overseas on official royal business without William and her engagements were to be at The Hague and Rotterdam.
Catherine’s first trip included a tour of the Mauritshuis museum in the Hague, where she had lunch with the King, Queen Maxima and their three daughters at their royal residence.
After lunch, Catherine visited the Mauritshuis Museum where Catherine surveyed and inspected twenty-two paintings that were on loan from the British Royal Collection.
Emilie Gordenker was one of the museum directors and she stopped to have a chat with Catherine and the children, whilst the children were lined up in the streets waving their Union Jack British flags. All the children were assembled in a line ahead of three traditional British red telephone boxes which were constructed for the exhibition.
What photographers loved to shoot was the stunning photo of Catherine, who stopped to pose in front of the famous painting, Girl with a pearl earring, which was originally painted by Vermeer. To me, this is a remarkable beloved iconic picture which represents a stunning appearance of her.
Catherine showed much interest in the painting, and Ms Gordenker apparently said “She didn’t mention the earrings she was wearing” which showed she was more interested in something else other than her own appearance.
Catherine asked Emilie if the painting had become more popular since the film came out, and Emilies response was “It definitely had”.
This is Emilie in this photograph below.
Catherine’s last enagagement of the day was visiting Bouwkeet which is a district in Rotterdam.
Catherine also helped fix a bicycle wheel there with two teenagers which was a workshop and pupils took part in a robotics class during the visit to De Boukweet Work Space – it is an initiative which is community based where Boukweet is a financially disadvantaged, and needy area.
Richenel Lensa mentioned that “The kids were very happy to see that someone important had come to see what they are doing.”
This is why I believe she is such a fantastic role model for our current generation. She is not only poised, but is smart, intelligent and knows how to work with purpose. I mainly got most of my information from the latest Royal Life Magazine, which if you get the latest copy it is $9.95 in most Australian news agency’s. I used to have them put aside for me in Merredin, but now that I am in Perth, I have had to find them for myself, as it is a different and wider demographic. I got this copy in Floreat Forum, as Scarborough doesn’t have them. I am thinking of doing a piece on the family’s engagement when they went to Canada, but this engagement really stood out to me, as the pictures of Catherine are just stunning, and I am most particularly interested in oil paintings. So, grab your copy, and sit back, and catch up on all the latest on Royal Life News.
All I have been doing these past couple of days is eagerly watching Twitter updates on the Royal Tour of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visiting India and Bhutan.
I follow Kensington Palace and have started to find Royal Photographers which take photos straight away and it has been thrilling to watch for new engagements and what is going to happen next!!!! I thought it was gorgeous that Kate had to write something in Braille and she decided to type “George”! He is obviously on her mind while she is overseas…. I can’t imagine how it would feel as a parent to feel so far away from your children but they are in good hands!!!
I just love every single dress she has worn. She has kept herself elegant and stylish while keeping a cultural perspective of Indian clothes.
If you follow me on Instagram I have been posting like mad these couple of days!!!! Every time I see new posts on Twitter it has been like, SCREENSHOT!!!!!!
If you know me personally, I could talk about Kate Middleton all day. I did a post on her in the Coats post and Real RepliKate post. There are numerous topics on her, her look, her style, her work, her family! The list goes on…..
Have you been enjoying the latest updates on her engagements?
I have!! I have become quite a Royal Watcher since late 2013 and have been fascinated by the work they do and what they are involved in. The travelling they did to India was a celebration for the Queens 90th and Prince William said he is incredibly lucky. I must say, I recently received a letter from the Queens lady in waiting and it is such a sentimental peice of documentation that I will absolutely cherish forever! I won’t be staying in Merredin forever and have framed it and it will always be in my room wherever I decide to live!
This is a picture of a house drawn by the Duchess of Cambridge during a visit to a contact centre run by the charity Salaam Baalak, which provides emergency help and long term support to homeless children at New Delhi railway station on April 12, 2016 in New Dehli, India.
Kate is absolutely breakthakingly stunning here and I love her aura. A woman of grace and quality and value has kept the worlds eyes on her! I believe she is an epitome of a lady and I have probably said that already but I can not recapitulate it without emphasising this even more!!! She is a woman of quality and more especially “princess” quality!
Here she did an arts class with the children in India. She is also a woman of creativity which a lady should also have. A lady should hold herself with a range of hobbies, such as either scrapbooking, quilting, sewing, if you’re not into anything creative as much try Card Making maybe! Or drawing, or oil painting. Taking something up in the Arts is a fascinating thing. There is a lot to learn!
Well, you have probably seen all the photos on my Instagram, but it was nice to add in a blog. I hope you have enjoyed my spiel on Kate! I apologise that I have not established a more detailed blog. An itinerary was posted. And you can go here to see an article from The Guardian on what they have been doing or The Mirror for a complete Royal Tour 2016 itinerary. I do know that India has been on Kates heart as she told Prince William she wanted to go there when they first got married.
She is such a Duchess of Dreams…….
