I have loved my copy of British Vogue’s issue of 100 years in FASHION. The one with Kate Middleton on the front is the June Issue, but by far it is my favourite British Vogue magazine. I have about three books on Kate, and have read quite a bit about her the past few years. Katie Nicholl is a journalist/author/royal correspondent that I follow to get information on the Royal and she gives lots of detailed information on upcoming events such as the Tour that is going to happen in Canada very soon! They will be visiting Kelowna and apparently are planning on taking little George and Princess Charlotte along with them.
You can find their recent work on the Vanity Fair website as well which has LOTS of information on where and when they will be doing engagements.
If you want to read about Kate Middleton I suggest you buy the book, KATE by Katie Nicholl herself! It is the BEST book I have read on her and I absolutely loved it and I have uploaded a picture of it on my Instagram a little while ago, when I first started becoming a Kate fan! Go to Katie Nicholl’s website for MORE details and coverage! She has all the latest news on her!
You learn a little bit about the commoner turning royal, and where she was brought up and what she did with her parents, etc. We all know her parents, Michael and Carole Middleton who became millionaires from launching their business, Party Pieces and Carole was a former flight attendant that then turned into a businesswoman. I did a whole bibliography on Kate for my subject on Applying Information Services. It had me hooked! and I loved referencing off many websites that also have a love for the Duchess.
Growing up she lived a normal easy-going childhood, and was born in Reading, and grew up in Berkshire. She now resides at Anmer Hall with her beautiful family, and I was quite blessed to receive two replies from her in the past year!
This is when she was 3 years old on a family holiday in the Lake District.
and this was Catherine when she was five years old.
Catherine Middleton, graduated at St. Andrews in an Arts History degree on June the 23rd 2005. I find this fascinating as I want to do an Arts History degree specialising in Ancient History! This was her on her graduation day.
Also, This was her on her 25th birthday.
You can go to Vogues looks of fashion this year and eye out what she wore to every event! There are more photos and a whole timeline of her fashion. I particularly liked this dress she wore at her latest solo public appearance as its a soft grey and doesn’t look dull but neutral at the same time. It is a peplum styled dress and she decided to part her fringe instead of having it all at the front. This was when she visited the Send women’s prison with the Rehabilitation of Addicted Prisoners Trust (RAPt), an addiction charity that works to help prisoners addicted to drugs and alcohol. She learned about the role that addiction has played in the prisoners offences.
“I was reminded today how addictions lie at the heart of so many social issues and how substance misuse can play such destructive role in vulnerable people’s lives,” she said. “I saw again today that a failure to intervene early in life to tackle mental health problems and other challenges can have profound consequences for people throughout their lives.
This was her second public appearance after giving birth to Charlotte, who is now 1 year old!
Now I just have to COO over little Charlotte – everyone has seen this gorgeous picture of her at six months, and there has been newer photos, but I just LOOOVE this one!!!
She is a CUTE little thing! and I think it is sweet what they named her! Charlotte (feminine version of Charles) Elizabeth (After Elizabeth II) Diana (After Prince Williams mother).
and I can’t wait to watch her grow up, and maybe give future speeches!!! and hear how she sounds! I am sure we are all looking forward to future events, and you know I AM!!!!!
My favourite dress of hers is in my post, Real Replikate, the Alexander McQueen Champagne Lace Dress. Go to my post to buy a replica of this dress (if that’s your favourite too!)
Today I am going to try and find some new replica dresses online as I only have ONE!!!! yep!!! How unlike me! It can be a little hard trying to find the perfect size, and not being able to try them on, but the Issa Bird Print dress I’ve got was a perfect fit, so will be eagerly looking for more!!!
