Keeping Up with the Cambridges- September 28

Keeping Up with the Cambridges- September 28

KUWTC rect

 

I truly can’t believe we are nearing the end of September! Time is flying by so quickly and yet there are still so many things to look forward to. Autumn is one of the most glorious times of year, and this year especially for the Cambridges. Catherine is pregnant with Cheeks’ younger brother or sister, William will be starting his new job as a helicopter pilot, and much more time will be spent in their country home Anmer Hall, as renovations are nearly complete. We just hope that Kate can stop getting sick in time to appreciate the changing leaves…poor love!

This Week:

  • September 24- Eureka! Mint Velvet now ships to the U.S!! We were told last year that shipping to the U.S. would be available in 2014, but as we waited patiently, we were beginning to think MV toyed with our emotions. Happily, we were wrong, and Mint Velvet delivered the great news on Wednesday that they now in fact deliver to the U.S. and Ireland, and to celebrate are offering FREE shipping until September 30th. Kate’s grey plimsolls are still only available in limited sizes, but due to the demand should be re-released later this Fall. In the meantime, there are countless options for that “relaxed glamour” look they are known for, and their selection of booties are right on trend. Go forth and spend!

  • September 24- Oops she did it again? On Wednesday it was revealed that Britney Spears had some Royalty in mind to test out her new lingerie line. The pop star admitted that she would love to see her new line, Intimate Britney Spears, on The Duchess of Cambridge! Yup, you heard that correctly, Ms. Spears said “I would love to see Kate in my underwear designs” and that she would be sending her every piece from the collection so she has much to choose from. Although a thoughtful gesture, something tells me a polite letter of declination will be in order. Could Kate accept the gift even if she wanted to though? Check back tomorrow on WWKD for the answer!

  • September 26- Russell & Bromley go to Europe! The beloved UK brand and Kate favorite, have announced that they now offer online shopping to several European countries. If you are lucky enough to live in one of the countries that they ship to, then hooray for happy feet! If not, well you’ll just be sat in a corner depressed and shoeless…

  Does anyone remember what they were doing this time last year? I do, and I barely made it out alive.
