Hurry! Get it while it’s hot! This week’s edition of Keeping Up with the Cambridges features some great tid bits from the Royal sector, so let us prepare for Thanksgiving and dig right in…

This Week:

  • November 19- The Place2Be is Kensington Palace! On Wednesday, the Duchess of Cambridge attended an award ceremony for one of her patronages, Place2Be. Place2Be is an organization that provides mental and emotional health support to children in primary and secondary school through discussions, creative projects, and various other work. This year, Place2Be held its first annual Wellbeing in Schools Awards in the State Apartments in Kensington Palace. Awards were given to community members, staff, and students who made a positive impact on their schools. Catherine interacted with children and adults alike who were involved in the charity, and was very keen to learn more about the past year’s work. Kate looked healthy and rosy in a black Hobbs polka dot peplum blouse, and a blue satin skirt by Jenny Packham. Her hair was swept off her face in a lovely half-up style to reveal her gold Temple of Heaven earrings. It was previously reported that she was wearing Jimmy Choo “Vikki” pumps, however she is in fact wearing the “Aimee” pumps. You can never have too many pairs of black pumps I say…

  • November 20- Next to diamonds, flowers are a girl’s best friend! Clearly, Barbra Streisand wasn’t talking about Prince William in her song “You don’t bring me flowers” because it seems good ol’ Wills is a true romantic! Speaking with celebrity florist Paula Pryke as she received her OBE at Buckingham Palace, the Duke of Cambridge said that he loved to surprise Kate with flowers and how their home is often filled with the fragrant blooms. No doubt this sweet gesture melts Kate’s heart…and ours too!
  • November 21- Out with the old, in with the new! The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, along with Prince Harry have a new Communications Secretary. Jason Knauf, American and 30 years of age, currently works for the Royal Bank of Scotland as the Director of Corporate Affairs and will begin his new position with the royal family after the new year. Mr. Knauf has been described as “Young and trendy” so it will be interesting to see how this will affect the Cambridges and Prince Harry’s image. It can only enhance it in my opinion!

 

Next Week:

  • November 25- ¬†On Tuesday, Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge will attend a fundraising launch for a new EACH Hospice. She will meet with families, volunteers, and supporters. Stay tuned!
