My oh my, how time has flown! Today we start a new month, and the official beginning of the Christmas season. There are lots of exciting times coming up for the Cambridges (George’s first Christmas!) but before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s look back over the past week to see what Kate has been up to. While myself and fellow Americans were knee-deep in stuffing and pie this Thanksgiving, Catherine was spending time with one of her favorite charities…
- November 28- And the award goes to! On Thursday evening, The Duchess of Cambridge attended the annual SportsBall gala held by SportsAid which as I am sure most of you know by now, offers financial support to aspiring professional athletes. Each year, the fundraiser celebrates all of the extraordinary achievements made by the young men and women and presents a special honor to a sportsman or sportswoman named the One-to-Watch Award. This year, Kate had the pleasure of presenting the award to 16- year-old Amber Hill who demonstrated excellency in shooting and shows great promise for the future. Prior to handing out the award, Kate walked the red carpet in a simple yet elegant black eyelet dress with a nude underlay by Temperley, Jimmy Choo “Cosmic” heels, red Alexander McQueen clutch and her matching diamond bracelet and earring set worn on countless occasions. She spoke with many young athletes involved in various sports and partners of the charity expressing a great deal of interest in their stories and discussions on the work that they do. Being a very sporty woman herself, I am sure it meant a lot to be there for both her and the athletes!
- December 5- On Thursday, William and Kate will attend the movie premiere of “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom” based on Nelson Mandela’s life. This film was this year’s selection for the Royal Film Performance. Looking forward to seeing this young couple on a glamorous night out!
