It was certainly an eventful week for the Duchess of Cambridge, who found herself a topic of conversation, thanks to author Hilary Mantel.
Though Catherine’s office did not release a statement in response to Mantel’s lecture, HRH is no doubt ready to prove the old gal wrong through her work with various charity organizations; according to royal reports, the Duchess is currently looking to expand her patronage and has been visiting several charities over the past weeks.
Pippa Middleton has a dashing new lad in her life. Nico Jackson, 35, has been courting Middleton for a few months now, and joined her on holiday with the rest of the Berkshire-raised clan on Mustique earlier this month. Read More »
All’s well with the Cambridge in-laws; Prince Harry reportedly still going strong with Cressida Bonas.
Since being introduce by his cousin Princess Eugenie, Harry and Bonas have been keeping in touch, even while he was serving in Afghanistan.
The Ginger and His Blond were first reported to be an item following the premiere of The Dark Knight Rises in July. After that, reports claimed that the singletons were together at the WOMAD Festival in August.
Now, just about every media outlet in the world is hot on the trail of Harry and Bonas, who are skiing together in Verbier, Switzerland. Along for ride? The Duchess of York, who is also a family friend of Bonas.
Thanks to Twitter, Prince Harry’s location was released, which rightly pissed the palace off (this counts as a private trip, therefore St. James’s Palace doesn’t comment on the matter). Read More »

After a Caribbean holiday spent with the Duke of Cambridge and her family, the Duchess of Cambridge returned to work today at Hope House residential center in Clapham, South London.
The treatment center, run by Catherine’s patroned charity Action on Addiction, focuses on helping women to recover from substance abuse. While inside the facility, Her Royal Highness spoke with a number of staff and residents, some of whom were also pregnant.
According to the Daily Mail, one woman asked Catherine if she was nervous about giving birth.
“She said it would be unnatural if she wasn’t,” the woman said. ”She’s human like us.”
For her second visit since announcing that she and the Duke are expecting their first child, Catherine chose a black and white MaxMara wrap dress. Her black heels were from House of Frasier and her diamond necklace, it is believed, comes from Asprey. Read More »
On this week’s episode of The Duchess Diary, the hot topic of pregnant bikini photos has everyone talking. Is it Catherine’s right to expect privacy while on holiday? Was the photographer who sought her and Prince William out on the island of Mustique way out of line by snapping pictures?
Our friends at Celebuzz have it on good authority that the Duke of Cambridge has instructed contractors to install bullet-proof windows, a panic room and other extreme safety measures after Prince Harry‘s controversial comments.
Harry, known as Captain Wales in Britain’s armed forces, compared warfare to playing video games, and made no bones about taking down enemies who target his comrades. Read More »
Chi Magazine is one of a few publications that purchased photos of the Duchess of Cambridge in her bikini. Her Royal Highness, about four months along in her pregnancy, was seeing walking along a beach on the island of Mustique with Prince William.
Catherine wore a blue string bikini, and a slightly protruding stomach was clearly visible in the photos, published not only in the Italian magazine, but also American tabloid Star and (come Monday) Australia’s Woman’s Day.
Today, ITV This Morning accidentally showed the magazine cover without blurring the offending image. The network released a statement immediately, apologizing profusely for their error.
“Earlier during today’s news review we were discussing photographs of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on a beach in Mustique published in an Italian magazine,” host Eammon Holmes said, according to the Metro. Read More »
On a special episode of The Duchess Diary, we take a look at the life of Princess Michael of Kent, who married Queen Elizabeth‘s cousin, Prince Michael of Kent in 1978.
Once nicknamed “Princess Pushy” by the wonderfully deadpan and sarcastic Princess Royal, Princess Michael is a grand and extroverted character. Since she and the hubby are not on the royal payroll, they make their money the way regular folk do.
Prince Michael runs his own consulting business, and he and his wife are often paid for appearances (which makes them more like celebrities, a term the royals loathe). Read More »
If we didn’t know any better, we’d think that designer Jenny Packham drew inspiration from the Duchess of Cambridge for her Autumn 2013 fashion show.
The Brit showcased regal designs today (February 12th) during New York Fashion Week, and most of the looks coming down the runway were ones we could totally see Catherine wearing to black tie events.
The black off-the-shoulder dress reminds of the saucy Christina Stambolian number the late Princess of Wales wore to the Serpentine Gallery in 1994. It was nicknamed the “revenge dress” because, that same night, Prince Charles admitted to having an affair with Camilla Parker-Bowles. Read More »
