Duchess of Cambridge celebrates 35th birthday

Duchess of Cambridge celebrates 35th birthday

Catherine Duchess of Cambridge, Royality
The Duchess of Cambridge celebrates her 35th birthday today. Kate is expected to mark the occasion privately with the Duke of Cambridge and her children Prince George and Princess Charlotte, ahead of her first public engagements of the new year. There were no clues about how she would spend her special day when she appeared with the Royal Family at church in Sandringham on Sunday where the Queen was in attendance for the first time since a heavy cold kept her away from services over the festive period. Kate, wearing a grey furry hat and a forest green coat and black heels, walked the short distance to the church with smartly-dressed William. But there was no sign of George or Charlotte. The rest of the Middleton family, Kate's sister Pippa, mother Carole, father Michael and brother J...

Kate Middleton reached far back into her closet to pull off her latest look as she rocked a pair of brown leather Penelope Chilvers boots she first debuted 12 years ago in 2004. The style-savvy Kate strikes again! The royal recycler is back at it! While Kate Middleton, 34, showed off a slew of new styles during the royal tour in Canada she also brought along a few of her favorite fashion items — and that includes a pair of brown leather Penelope Chilvers boots. Kate stepped out in the Canadian island community of Bella Bella on Sept. 26 where she rocked a casual look for the rainy day. Kate’s get-up was so safari chic for the occasion as she rocked a tan Holland and Holland jacket over a skinny pair of Zara jeans, topping the entire look off with her trusty brown Penelope Chilvers boots w

While this weekend's upcoming Canada tour (which Prince George and Princess Charlotte are coming along for!) won't be Catherine Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William's first visit to the country, it will be their first with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in office. And just like Catherine Duchess of Cambridge, the Canadian PM's wife, former television presenter Sophie Grégoire Trudeau has quite the sartorial streak herself. Actually, Sophie, 41, and Catherine Duchess of Cambridge's, 34, style sense seems to check off a lot of the same boxes – here's the evidence. 1. They both know the importance of a great fascinator. Sophie may not be a royal, but that doesn't stop her from rocking the royal accessory. And just like Catherine Duchess of Cambridge, she's paired one with a full lace

When Prince William and Catherine Duchess of Cambridge fly to Canada next month, they will do so with their trusted entourage by their side for the eight-day tour, which kicks off Sept. 24. So much has changed since the couple's first official visit in 2011, and with their children Prince George and Princess Charlotte expected to join them this time, that means more staff to help out. At the same time, William and Catherine Duchess of Cambridge, who will arrive on a scheduled jet, will want to keep numbers to a minimum and to their best-known staffers. Around a dozen people, plus security, will be in the entourage – many of whom also took part in the couple's last foreign tour, of India and Bhutan, in April.

Prince William and Duchess Catherine host "informal drinks" for their photographers. The couple like to "have a chat" and get to know the people who travel with them on royal tours and take their pictures, so they always set aside some time for a relaxed get together. Photographer Samir Hussein revealed: "They definitely recognise faces because we go around with them all the time and certainly on tour they usually put aside some time for us to meet them, they set up some kind of a bar and they come and have a drink with us and have a chat. "When we're on tour with them they tend to be a lot more relaxed, for instance when I was with William and Kate on their tour of India and Bhutan recently and they had informal drinks and I came and had a long chat with them both so that was good." ...

The Duke and Duchess sit in front of the Taj Mahal during their Royal tour earlier this year. Photo / Getty Images Travelling around India can be daunting. Packing Mumbai, Delhi, Agra - not to mention the Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan - into a week is verging on the impossible, but that's what the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge did earlier this year, and I followed them every step of the way. While challenging, it was the perfect chance to experience a bite-sized portion of this part of the world. I have always longed to experience the cosmopolitan charm of Mumbai, shop in New Delhi's markets and marvel at the splendour of the Taj Mahal. Luckily for me, the Duke an...
