Happy 6th Birthday to Princess Charlotte!

Princess Charlotte turns 6 tomorrow! To mark this happy occasion, the Duke and Duchess shared a new photograph this evening. The photograph was taken by the Duchess of Cambridge over the weekend in Norfolk. How much has she grown! She’s getting so big! It feels like yesterday when we saw her exiting the hospital in her mother’s arms.

Princess Charlotte is currently attending St. Thomas’ Battersea together with her older brother, Prince George. When the Cambridge children are attending school, the family is residing in London at Kensington Palace on weekdays. In the holidays and during the weekends, they often go to their country home Amner Hall in Norfolk.

10th Wedding Anniversary: New Photographs + A video (updated)

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are celebrating their 10th wedding anniversary tomorrow. To mark the occasion, they have released two new photographs tonight. It’s bizarre that it has been ten years since that wonderful day in London in April 2011.

The first photograph was taken by Chris Floyd at Kensington Palace earlier this week, showing the couple in an affectionate embrace. It makes one think back to the famous photograph from the engagement photoshoot, taken by Mario Testino.

The second photograph was also taken by Chris Floyd at Kensington Palace, showing the Duke still as much in love as he was 10 years ago, looking at his Duchess. It appears that this picture was taken in the gardens.

The Duke and Duchess later released a short new video of them and their children, enjoying themselves outdoors in Norfolk, both on the beach and in the gardens of their country home Amner Hall. The footage was filmed last Autumn by Will Warr, during the photoshoot with Matt Porteous for the Christmas card. The Duke and Duchess posted the following message on social media: ”Thank you to everyone for the kind messages on our wedding anniversary. We are enormously grateful for the 10 years of support we have received in our lives as a family. W & C

10th Wedding Anniversary: Maddalena’s 10 Favourite Cambridge Moments

Originally the plan was to celebrate the Duke and Duchess of Camridge’s 10th wedding anniversary throughout April. Because of the death of The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, I decided to reschedule this to the final few days of the month leading up to the big day. Today is the first episode in a short series that will give a Cambridge fan the opportuniy to share their ten favourite moments from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, with today: Maddalena! You can follow Maddalena on Twitter or Instagram.

Note: Maddalena picked a moment from each year of the Cambridge’s marriage.

2011: The Canada Royal Tour

I could’ve gone with a cliché moment from their wedding, but I think the best Cambridges moment from 2011 was the speech Prince William begun in French during their Canada Royal tour in June and July. I think it set the precedent for many more tours that were going to get done the Cambridges way. Plus, the face the Duchess made when she heard her husband speaking French was pretty epic.

2012: The Duke dancing during the Diamond Jubilee Tour

I know I just said I wasn’t going to go cliché, but it was without a doubt the funniest moment in Royal history, maybe. Prince William dancing during the 2012 tour of the Pacific Commonwealth was very memorable.

2013: Prince George’s birth

I can’t help but select the most amazing moment of that year: the birth of baby Prince George! Do I even have to explain why I chose this? 🙂

10th Wedding Anniversary: Juliet’s 10 Favourite Cambridge Moments

Originally the plan was to celebrate the Duke and Duchess of Camridge’s 10th wedding anniversary throughout April. Because of the death of The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, I decided to reschedule this to the final few days of the month leading up to the big day.

Note: the ten moments are not in any particular order!

25 October 2010: The wedding of Harry Meade and Rosie Bradford

Will and Kate attend the wedding of Harry Meade and Rosie Bradford. I think this must have been such a fun event for Will and Kate. They had gotten back from Kenya and were engaged, but they hadn’t announced it yet. I like to think Kate was eyeing all the wedding details and starting to make a mental list of things she might like to have herself for her own wedding. I’m sure she also had a moment when she realized that she might have to tear up that mental list because her wedding was going to be a wedding unlike any other!

16 November 2010: The Tom Bradby engagement interview

What an absolute treat for any Kate fans! The Duchess in her own words, with a few outtakes thrown in – you get a sense of Kate’s personality here. You can tell from the way they speak to each other that they’re great friends.

13 February 2019: Gucci gown for 100 Women in Finance Gala

I had to include one totally gratuitous dress moment! Sometimes it seems like Kate saves her more adventurous gowns for this event each year – one of those times where you know your audience will be other women who will really appreciate a fashion moment – this one has its detractors, but it’s a 10/10 for me.

Happy 3rd Birthday to Prince Louis!

Prince Louis turns 3 tomorrow! To mark this happy occasion, the Duke and Duchess shared a new photograph this evening. The photograph was taken by the Duchess of Cambridge when prince Louis started nursery earlier this week on Wednesday morning. The picture features the Prince on a cute red bike departing Kensington Palace for his nursery school, looking absolutely adorable. He has grown so much since we last saw him! The Prince was due to start nursery in January, but COVID-19 got in the way.

The Prince’s older brother, Prince George, attended a different nursery school near the family’s country home Amner Hall in Norfolk. He is currently attending St. Thomas’s Battersea in London, like his sister Princess Charlotte. Princess Charlotte attended the same nursery as Prince Louis will: Willcocks Nursery School in Kensington, London. It is very close to where the family lives.

Princess Louis will be attending his nursery school full-time, unlike prince George, who started nursery part-time in Norfolk. The curriculum includes art, dancing and music.
