Inside the offices of Child Bereavement UK today (March 19th) the Duke and Duchess met with many eager faces, including members of staff, bereaved children and adults, like British culinary master Mary Berry.
Berry, famed chef, television presenter and host of the Great British Bake-Off, has been a patron of the charity for eight years, having lost her son, William in a car accident in 1989.
The Duchess of Cambridge was first to greet Berry, admitting that she and her sweet tooth love Berry’s recipes.
“I love your cookbooks and I love your cakes, they’re so delicious,” Catherine told Berry, according to Sky News royal correspondent Paul Harrison. Read More »
For the past few days, it’s been all about Gwyneth Paltrow and her transition from Guinness-chugging brown rice-noshing Goopy-Goop to a revitalized wife and mother. That’s all well and good, but let’s look at how pretty she is on the cover of April 2013′s Self Magazine!
Ok, a bit photoshopped, which is a little unsettling given Paltrow’s natural beauty.
Aside from her much-publicized interview, in which she discusses changing her diet to better suit her mood, Paltrow loves herself a bit of royalty.
Of course she’s a fan of the Duchess of Cambridge, despite never having had an audience with the former commoner. Read More »
Today (March 19th) the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visit the offices of Child Bereavement UK in Buckinghamshire, England, a charity set up to support families who have lost a child, as well as those who have lost a parent.
Prince William has been a patron of the CB UK for three years now, and in October 2011, he and 100 Women in Hedge Funds raised almost $1 million dollars for the cause. According to the Daily Mail, the money goes towards training professionals to provide ongoing support to grieving families.
That event, held at St. James’s Palace, saw the Duchess of Cambridge in a gorgeous red gown by Beulah London.
Today, Catherine wore Topshop‘s black “Contrast Collar” dress under Goat‘s “Redgrave” coat, according to Grazia Magazine. You may recognize the court shoes, as they were the same ones that got caught in a grate while HRH greeted the Irish Guards on Sunday (March 17th). Read More »
Ah, Mr. Gary Goldsmith. Carole Middleton‘s younger brother once brought a bit of shame to his extended family in 2009, when he offered drugs and prostitutes to an undercover News Of The World reporter at his Ibiza home, aptly named “La Masion de Bang Bang.”
Goldsmith was filmed cutting up cocaine in his kitchen, and spoke about being able to organize drug deliveries to London. He also bragged that once the future king and queen move into Buckingham Palace, he’ll have run of the place.
“I’ve got my own rooms, the Goldsmith Wing! I’m going to be the Duke of Slough!”
Today, news of Goldsmith’s exclusive interview with HELLO! Magazine hit the interweb, and heaven only knows what’s going through Carole’s head. Read More »
Few things make us happier here at SOCIALITE LIFE than seeing The Duke and Duchess of Camrbidge being adorable together.
And my oh my were they just beyond adorable earlier today while performing their royal duties. Catherine and William headed to Aldershot, Hampshire where they passed out shamrocks in honor of St. Patrick’s Day to the 1st Battalion Irish Guards. Also, how happy is the bunch of shamrocks on Prince William’s hat making you guys?
In case Catherine’s coat looks familiar, don’t worry, you’re not going crazy. Actually, it’s the same coat she wore to last year’s shamrock service. While last year it wrapped around, showing off just how tiny her waist was, this year it gave us a few glimpses at the royal baby bump! Speaking of the baby bump, did you hear Kate wants a boy?

Looks like things are seriously heating up between Prince Harry and Cressida Bonas!
The duo was spotted leaving London’s Rum Kitchen Saturday night after partying until forever! Obviously Harry left first to avoid any actual couple pictures. But don’t worry, Cressida followed closely behind. Guess all that time in the Swiss Alps together really made a difference!
Or, maybe Cressida saw all these shirtless posters of Prince Harry around town and couldn’t stop herself from getting in on some royal action! This is the first lady Harry has been rumored to be seriously interested in since his break-up with Chelsy Davy. Think he and Cressida are gonna make it work? Read More »
