Such is the terrain when you are an actress portraying (a fictional version of) one of the most famous individuals on the planet You had a friend who was playing Catherine Duchess of Cambridge onstage—on Broadway, no less!—you, if you’re anything like us, would doubtlessly be deluging her with screenshots of Catherine Duchess of Cambridge looks, with jokes of a “So are you too fancy now to meet me at Chipotle for lunch?!” nature, and lots of hair talk. But Lydia Wilson—who is, in fact, playing Catherine Duchess of Cambridge, on Broadway, in the new play King Charles III—said that her pals are decidedly apathetic about their friend’s Duchess-channeling. “We’re such a little counter-establishment group . . . we all play it too cool,” Wilson told me over tea, at the West Village’s Tea &

With her striking blue eyes, tumbling blonde waves and glowing smile Lady Kitty Spencer bears more than a passing resemblance to her late aunt Princess Diana And this week the eldest child of Diana’s brother Earl Spencer has made headlines of her own. She has revealed controversially that she is happy for the family’s famous Althorp estate in Northamptonshire to be left to her younger brother Viscount Louis. In an interview in the latest issue of Tatler magazine, which voted her Britain’s most eligible woman in 2007, she said she believes that primogeniture – the right by law or custom of the first-born male child to inherit the family estate – is the “correct way”. Despite calls for this outdated aristocratic inheritance system to be reformed, Lady Kitty, 26, agrees that Althorp

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are to attend the Festival of Remembrance for the first time, passing another milestone on their growing list of royal Duties William and Catherine Duchess of Cambridge will join the Queen, Prince Philip and other senior members of the Royal Family at the Royal Albert Hall on Saturday November 7 for the British Legion's traditional televised service. The following day, Remembrance Sunday, the couple will join other relatives at the Cenotaph, where Catherine Duchess of Cambridge will watch from the Foreign Office balcony as William lays a wreath to mark the sacrifice of Britain's War dead. William, 33, will take the veterans' salute on Horse Guards Parade after the wreath-laying ceremony which this year will also be attended by King Willem-Alexander ...

It seems only natural the actors who portray Prince William, Prince Harry and Princess Catherine Duchess of Cambridge might be curious The stars of Broadway's King Charles III knew going into their original London run that they had huge shoes (or jewels, in one case) to fill, so it seems only natural the actors who portray Prince William, Prince Harry and Princess Catherine Duchess of Cambridge might be curious how their real-world counterparts would respond to the admittedly controversial and provocative drama. "We've had no comeback," says Richard Goulding, who originated a more-Vegas-than-valiant Harry in Mike Bartlett's "future play," which imagines a time right after the death of Queen Elizabeth II when the ascent of Prince Charles to the throne causes backbiting, scheming and pow...

Prince George looked adorable in Crocs when he stepped out with mom Catherine Duchess of Cambridge for a museum visit Prince George is the spitting image of his father, the Duke of Cambridge Prince William when he was a toddler, with his parted hairstyle and chubby cheeks. A couple of photos of Prince George's day out to the Natural History Museum in London, with the Duchess of Cambridge Catherine Duchess of Cambridge, are shared by OK! magazine. The 2-year-old was photographed wearing a pair of jeans and a collared polo shirt. Prince George was accompanied by his mom, who in one photo, is shown holding onto her son's hand to keep him close by. Catherine Duchess of Cambridge and Prince George reportedly went to the museum unnoticed. There was no security detail watching over them so p...

Not surprisingly, a new round of speculation about whether or not Catherine Duchess of Cambridge is pregnant goes began pretty much the moment the Duchess gave birth to Princess Charlotte So we doubt anyone was terribly shocked to see this cover story in OK! magazine: For some reason, tabloids are obsessed with the idea of Catherine Duchess of Cambridge giving birth to twins. In fairness, if the reactions to Prince George and Princess Charlotte are any indication, the entire UK would explode from excitement if Catherine Duchess of Cambridge ever brought a matching set of royals into the world, so it's not hard to see why the BS press is so enamored with the idea. Anyway, OK! can't quite make up its mind on this one, as the cover claims Catherine Duchess of Cambridge is giving birth t...

Forget the Queen. Forget Prime Minister David Cameron and his wife, Sarah. Forget, even, Prince William For the recent and very important visit of the president of China, which ended with £40 billion in new business deals for British companies, the uncontested star was the Duchess of Cambridge. Although it was her first state dinner since her wedding, she appeared poised, elegant, chic and comfortable in her role. At home and abroad, the universal opinion was her star shone brighter than any other – and as the star of her first state dinner, even brighter than she had in the past. So much so, in fact, that most international publications referred to the state dinner for the top Chinese dignitary and his wife as if it had been Kate’s personal event and her invitation: “The Duchess of

It is somehow reassuring and deeply satisfying to see Prince Harry finding his niche in life Not long ago he was being heavily criticised for leading a “pointless” existence after leaving the Army. He was, predicted the carpers, going to “faff about” on sundry meaningless projects. I thought at the time that this was deeply unfair. For starters, Harry had just completed two tours of duty in Afghanistan and it is well known that he refused to be mollycoddled there and wished to be placed in harm’s way. It’s not his fault he is the brother of our future king and the Queen’s grandson. Of course he had to be shielded and it’s to his credit that this reportedly genuinely frustrated him. Since returning to civvy street Harry has thrown himself into working heart and soul for injured soldi

A tiny mini-skirt, red and black bodice, fingerless elbow gloves... not forgetting the towering scarlet heels It is a revealing, flimsy outfit that many adult women would think twice about wearing. But this is a Halloween costume sold by Carole Middleton’s firm Party Pieces – for girls as young as ten. Campaigners last night criticised the range offered by the internet venture, which is owned by the mother of the Duchess of Cambridge, for ‘s*xualising’ young girls. The red and black devil costume, called ‘Hot Stuff’, was said to be for youngsters aged ten to 16. Meanwhile a costume with a black and silver bodice, mini-skirt and elbow gloves called ‘Midnight Mischief’ was aimed at children as young as four. And ‘Fallen Angel’ – modelled by a gangly girl in lace-up knee-high boots a
