The Duchess of Cambridge debuted a chic new hairstyle on Wednesday as she and Prince William attended the ICAP Charity Day. The stylish royal appeared to have embraced the shorter hair trend, with a few inches chopped off her glossy brunette locks, leaving the length falling just below her shoulders. Kate was looking as radiant as ever as she showed off her new 'do - which also saw some layers being added in to the look – by wearing her tresses down in a sleek blow-dried style with a middle parting. While the mother-of-two has been sporting a chic fringe in recent months, it seems that she has been slowly growing it out. At the charity event her fringe was parted to the middle and swept to the side, adding to the gorgeous layered effect. The Duchess was as stylish as ever for the ch

Prince William caught Princess Kate Middleton flirting during a phone call on Wednesday — but it was all for a good cause During an event on the stock trading floor in London, the royal couple helped to raise $540 million for ICAP's annual charity day. Traders wore zany getups and pledged 100% of today's income to ICAP. In its history, the organization's charity day has benefitted over 1,800 causes worldwide. The prince and princess both made phone calls to help raise money — and the Duchess got a little too flirty for William's liking. "Ask nicely, pretty please, Andrew," she said during a phone call with a trader. William overheard the banter and said, "Catherine, I think you can stop flirting with them now!" The pair even brought their competitive spirit to a little round of Pin
The Duchess of Cambridge dazzled in Princess Diana's signature tiara when she joined the Queen and senior members of the Royal Family at a glittering diplomatic reception at Buckingham Palace tonight Catherine Duchess of Cambridge, 33, wore the Cambridge Lovers Knot Tiara for the first time to the annual event in the palace ballroom, attended by around 1,500 guests.

Heavy and often difficult to wear, the piece, composed of jewels that Mary had in her collection, features swinging pearls hanging from 19 diamond arches capped with lovers' knots bows. It was designed in 1913 for Mary, George V's wife, to look li...
While tiaras were very much in style for the women of the royal family, Catherine Duchess of Cambridge has only worn them three times before tonight The first time was for her April 2011 wedding, when she sported the Cartier Halo Tiara, and twice when she chose the Lotus Flower Tiara - also known as the Papyrus tiara - which belonged to Princess Margaret at the Queen's annual diplomatic reception at the Palace in 2013. Famous family heirlooms also include the Spencer Tiara, which was worn by William's mother Diana, Princess of Wales, at her wedding to the Prince of Wales, and many times after. THE CARTIER HALO Before the royal wedding in 2011, this diadem was commonly known as the Scroll Tiara. In the official information released about the bride's attire, the Palace referred to it as a...
It is the largest – and, some say, the most glittering - reception the monarch holds each year at Buckingham Palace So it was fitting that the Duchess of Cambridge had dusted off some of the royal family’s finest jewels. Arriving at the Queen's annual Diplomatic Reception in a chauffeur-driven Bentley, Kate was wearing, appropriately, the dazzling diamond and pearl Cambridge Lover's Knot tiara, once owned by Princess Diana. The tiara was originally made by Queen Mary in 1914 to her own design from pearls and diamonds already in her family's possession. It was a copy of one owned by her grandmother, Princess Augusta of Hesse, who married the first Duke of Cambridge, seventh son of King George III, in 1818. In her will Queen Mary left the tiara to to the Queen who wore it frequently,
