Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis are all ready to start their new school after moving from London to Windsor.
Ahead of the first day of classes on September 8, the Cambridge children visited Lambrook School in Berkshire for a tour of campus and a meeting with the headmaster. It marks the first time all three will attend the same educational facility together. (Prince Louis is in pre-prep, Princess Charlotte is in third grade, and Prince George is in fifth.)
The entire family, including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, held hands as they walked to the entrance. The children all wore the school’s warm weather uniform: Prince George and Prince Louis in matching white polos and navy blue shorts, and Charlotte in a blue gingham dress.
According to reports, Prince William told the Lambrook headmaster that his three children are eager for their first day: “They’re looking forward to it. They have lots of questions.”
The school is a mere 15-minute drive from their new home of Adelaide Cottage, on the grounds of Windsor Castle. It’s reported that a desire to raise their children in the relative privacy of suburbia was a catalyst for the Cambridge family’s decision to leave London. Lambrook, which sits upon 50 idyllic acres, certainly fits that criteria.
Plus, Lambrook has taught royal pupils before: Founded in 1860, two grandsons of Queen Victoria, Prince Christian Victor, and Prince Albert, were both pupils at the school. Queen Victoria used to travel from Windsor Castle to watch their plays—and now, centuries later, it seems Prince William and Kate Middleton will follow suit.

Kate Middleton and Prince William have touched down at the U.K. premiere of Top Gun: Maverick.
On May 19, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended a screening of the Top Gun sequel starring Tom Cruise at Leicester Square in London, England. Middleton walked the red carpet wearing a black-and-white off-shoulder gown by Roland Mouret that was perfectly complemented by her husband’s classic black tuxedo. The Duchess kept her neck bare and her loose, straight hair away from her face to showcase a par of dainty starburst diamond earrings.
While Prince William kept his look relatively simple, he snuck in one nod to the Top Gun franchise on his velvet shoes, which featured a jet plane design. Prince William previously served as a pilot in the Royal Air Force, as did his brother, Prince Harry.
The film’s star, Tom Cruise, reportedly feels he has “a lot in common” with the Duke of Sussex. “We both love England and we’re both aviators, we both love flying,” Cruise said on the red carpet, per My London.

According to reports, this isn’t the first time Prince William and Kate Middleton have viewed the sequel to the 1986 classic film about a band of elite fighter pilots. In the 2022 sequel, Maverick (Cruise) makes his return to the Top Gun Naval Fighter Weapons School to shepherd a new group of airmen, including the son of his late best friend, Goose (Anthony Edwards), played by Teller. Cruise had reportedly invited the couple to an even more private screening in March after hearing Prince William was a fan of the original film.
Top Gun: Maverick hits theaters on May 24, 2022.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte just made their official Easter debut with Kate Middleton and Prince William.
On April 17, the Cambridge family, minus three-year-old Prince Louis, attended Easter mass at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle, per royal family tradition. For Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s first time, the family opted to coordinate in matching blue outfits. Kate Middleton stunned in a belted cornflower Emilia Wickstead dress, clutch, and intricate dark blue headpiece, while Princess Charlotte wore a dress and tights in the same pastel shade. The six-year-old girl’s navy cardigan and shoes served to compliment Prince George and Prince William’s matching suits.
Look at this picture-perfect group:

This isn’t the first time the Cambridge family has worn matching blue looks. Back in April 2020, the family was seen wearing various shades of the color during BBC Children and Comic Relief’s Big Night In to raise money for those on the front lines of the pandemic. In the special, the family clapped for National Health Services workers.

Queen Elizabeth did not attend Easter services this year. The Queen has been staying at Windsor Castle since February as she recovers from Covid-19. During an April Zoom call, she spoke with another Covid patient and remarked that the virus has left her “tired and exhausted.”
While the Queen has not been venturing out in public, it’s been reported that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle paid her a visit on their way to the Netherlands for the Invictus Games. This marked the couple’s first joint visit since moving to California in 2020, according to People.
While this was Markle’s first time back in the U.K. since March 2020, Prince Harry had visited his grandmother twice. In April 2021, the Duke of Sussex flew in for Prince Philip’s funeral before returning just a couple of months later to unveil a statue of his mom, the late Princess Diana.

With the easing of coronavirus travel restrictions coinciding with the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee year, this spring will see a number of Royal Family members representing the monarch on commemorative visits across the Commonwealth. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge kicked off their own trip in this capacity at the weekend, swapping the UK for the Caribbean, where they’ll be visiting Belize, Jamaica and The Bahamas from March 19 to 26.

Last night saw the royal couple attend a special reception hosted by the Governor General of Belize, at the historic Mayan ruins at Cahal Pech. Kate Middleton pulled out all the stops for the occasion, shimmering in an ethereal metallic pink gown by one of her go-to designers, The Vampire’s Wife, teamed with Jimmy Choos and a Mayan embroidered clutch bag. Prince William, meanwhile, looked dapper in a dark blue jacket and pale shirt. He delivered a speech at the event, saying, “Catherine and I are delighted to be here with you tonight in Belize at the beginning of our first official visit to the Caribbean,” and that he was “honored to convey the very warmest wishes from my grandmother, The Queen of Belize, on the occasion of her Platinum Jubilee.”

As the tour first got underway in Belize at the weekend, Middleton dressed for the occasion – and the climate – in two summery blue ensembles, nodding to the country’s flag, which features a coat of arms against a deep blue background. On arrival in the country, the Duchess disembarked from the plane in an elegant lace suit by one of her favorite designers, Jenny Packham. She accessorized the look with matching sapphire earrings and a necklace, reworked from a set that once belonged to her late mother-in-law, Diana, Princess of Wales.

The royal couple were out and about on Sunday for a visit to a cocoa plantation farm in southern Belize, the Che’il Mayan Chocolate Factory, where they were shown by chocolate maker Julio how he and his family create their organic product. Kate opted for a vibrant blue floral midi-dress by Tory Burch for the outing, teamed with an Anya Hindmarch clutch and fun blue, dangling earrings, by French brand Sézane. On both days, Prince William complemented his wife’s ensembles by opting for a pale blue suit, followed by a blue shirt.

The Duke and Duchess made sure to have some fun on their trip, joining in with music and dancing as they spent time with the Garifuna community and learnt about their traditions in Hopkins, a village in Belize, yesterday.

Kensington Palace previously released a statement about the tour, stating: “The Royal tour begins in Belize where Their Royal Highnesses will visit historic Mayan sites and celebrate the rich culture of the Garifuna community as well as exploring the country’s biodiversity. The Duke and Duchess will then travel to Jamaica where their visit will include engaging with the Jamaican Defence Force and celebrating the seminal legacy of Bob Marley and other ground-breaking Jamaican musicians alongside some of tomorrow’s stars. The Duke and Duchess’ visit will end in The Bahamas where they will spend time with communities across a number of islands and experience a world famous junkanoo parade.”

The couple have been on a number of tours together throughout their royal careers, including to New Zealand, Australia, Canada and the US. This is the first time they’ve made an official visit to the Caribbean, however, which the Duke’s younger brother, Prince Harry, previously visited to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012.

Kate Middleton Re-Wore Her Favorite Green Coat While Color-Coordinating with Prince William

Kate Middleton Re-Wore Her Favorite Green Coat While Color-Coordinating with Prince William

After visiting a goat farm in Wales dressed in a quilted jacket, Kate Middleton slipped into two of her favorite pieces to mark St David’s Day.
The Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William stepped out in color-coordinated looks, with both wearing shades of dark green. While the Duke of Cambridge sported the same jumper he wore earlier in the day, Middleton’s outfit change saw her re-wear her classic longline coat in olive green from SportsMax. The royal paired the form-flattering piece with a turtleneck in a similar color, black skinny jeans cinched at the waist with a brown belt, and black suede boots.

The shoes from Aquatalia have been a staple in Middleton’s wardrobe for over a decade and were last worn in 2018. As for the coat, which features an oversized collar and is crafted from Italian wool, the piece has been sold out for a long time now and is one of her go-to’s for royal engagements. Besides her sophisticated and chic sense of style, the mother-of-three is also known to champion sustainability by often repeating her closet’s best pieces. This particular coat was worn by the royal on Christmas Day in 2015 and also during a visit to Edinburgh in 2016.
While in Wales, Middleton also flew the flag for local fashion by donning a pair of earrings by a Welsh designer. Her twisted gold hoops were picked from the brand The Spells of Love, and made with recycled 18K gold vermeil.

Here’s Why Princess Diana Never Wore Hats on Her Visits with Children

Here’s Why Princess Diana Never Wore Hats on Her Visits with Children

Photo: Getty
The reason why Princess Diana didn’t wear a headpiece in her visits to children has been revealed, and it is a heartwarming one. Claudia Acott Williams, curator of Kensington Palace‘s new exhibition, Royal Style in the Making on June 3, stated the reason as “you can’t cuddle a child in a hat.”
According to Williams, the late Princess of Wales also abandoned the royal protocol of wearing gloves because she liked to hold hands when visiting people or shake hands and have direct contact.
The exhibition in the London palace, showcasing some of Princess Diana’s most memorable outfits to commemorate her passing 20 years later, features the sketch of a blue floral dress she wore when visiting children or hospitals. Designed by David Sassoon, it became known as her “caring dress” because she knew that children loved the bright, floral pattern. Williams adds that the Princess wore big costume jewelry because “she would pick children up and they would play with it.”

“She understood how what you were wearing could really convey warmth… it could reinforce hierarchy or it could undermine hierarchy and create more of a relationship,” says Williams.
Matthew Storey, curator at the Historic Royal Palaces, says that the example “really illustrates just how carefully she considered the people she would meet when selecting outfits for her many public engagements.”
Also included in the exhibition is Princess Diana’s wedding dress, loaned by her sons Prince William and Prince Harry, which is on public display for the first time in more than 25 years. The gown, which the late Princess Diana wore to marry Prince Charles at London’s St Paul’s Cathedral on July 29, 1981, was designed by David and Elizabeth Emanuel. It has a fitted bodice overlaid with panels of antique Carrickmacross lace originally belonging to Queen Mary.

The dress is on display with the princess’s 7.6-meter sequin-encrusted train, which is the longest in British royal history to date.
The exhibition will be closed on Thursday, July 1, on what would have been Princess Diana’s 60th birthday.
