Everything You Want to Know About #RoyalsInNYC

Everything You Want to Know About #RoyalsInNYC

It was the news we waited months  years forever to hear – the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are visiting New York City. The Royal Couple will visit New York City and Washington, D.C. from December 7-9. Royal Watchers had an absolute meltdown and quickly began researching plane, train, and NBA tickets. We listened to all your questions and now we have some answers…

What will they be doing?

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are undertaking 10 engagements in about 48 hours. You can read the full itinerary here.

Can we see them at the airport? 

Honestly, no. New York City area airports (Newark, LaGuardia, and JFK) are all extremely high on security and in urban areas. Unless you wish to stand on a highway 1000 yards away from any possibility of seeing them…in the cold…at night…

Can we see them at an event?

Maybe! The best opportunity to see the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be at the NBA game on Monday evening. Some tickets are still available, although they will cost you! William and Kate will sit in a private box to view the game. You may also be able to see them entering The Barclay Center, so it might be fun to stop by and see! The second event where you might see them is at the St. Andrew’s 600th Anniversary Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where you can see Their Royal Highnesses arrive in black tie attire (can you say NEW GOWN?!).

What about the other events?

The other events are smaller and more private. The security will be extremely high at these events, and it is very possible that NYC police will close down the streets. That would prevent any royal watchers from staking out the front door of these charities to catch a glimpse of Kate. The locations for these events are also being kept under wraps. If that changes, we’ll let you know!

What do we do if we meet her?

Smile, curtsy, and say hello. Keep your composure. It never hurts to bring flowers, but leave the gifts at home. That would be a moment you’ll never forget, so skip the selfies and pictures. Just enjoy the opportunity to meet the future Queen of England who we all love so dearly.

What will Kate wear?

Coats! Lots of coats! It is cold! We predict she will repeat her Michael Kors coat from the NZ/OZ tour and her DVF coats from previous engagements – both are American designers! We can also expect to see her Aquatalia boots and suede Prada pumps! For formal events, I expect some new outfits to accommodate her pregnancy. What do you think she will wear?

Is Cheeks going?

No.

Is Wills going to wear that navy suit?

Of course he is. ($5 says he wears those trainers we all love to the NBA game. Any takers?)

Where can we find out what Kate wore/did/said?

Here, of course! Follow WWKD’s coverage on Twitter, Facebook, and check the website for updates!

What time does X event start?

Unfortunately, the times of most events cannot be announced due to security reasons. We can tell you whether it is a morning/afternoon/evening event, and a bit of educated guessing goes a long way!

I have another question…

Fantastic! We love questions! Send us an e-mail at info@whatwouldkatedo.com or a tweet at @WWKD_Official!

Monthly Mental Health: On Grief

Monthly Mental Health: On Grief

For many of us, August represents the warmth of summer, leisurely vacations, sea, sand, and surf. It’s the last hurrah before school begins again, fall creeps in, and we start to contemplate wearing sweaters, coats, and boots. For the Duke of Cambridge, however, August has another meaning, as this August 31st will be the seventeenth anniversaryContinue Reading

What’s in a Royal Title?

What’s in a Royal Title?

If you’ve ever been on Twitter during a “what is Kate’s last name” debate, you know to stay far, far away from that fire. For whatever reason, the most hotly debated topic is Kate’s official title. On her wedding day, Catherine received a royal title befitting of her new royal status as the wife ofContinue Reading

The New Zealand and Australia Royal Tour is almost here! We are so excited to see the various events, wonderful cities, and photo opportunities (mostly of Prince George of the Chubby Cheeks, of course) during those three weeks down unda. Along with William, Kate, and George, there will be a professional team of royal aidesContinue Reading

Being the ‘New Girl’

Being the ‘New Girl’

We’ve all been the ‘new girl’ at some point in our lives, probably more than once – school, university, parties, at work. I’ve VERY recently started at a new job and I’m currently the ‘new girl’, but our favourite lady, Kate, has also been the new girl numerous times, not only at university when sheContinue Reading

Kate, William and Harry visit Warner Bros – Leavesden

Today, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry made a very exciting visit to Warner Brothers Studios in Leavesden. Potterheads were all abuzz for the event, as the Warner Brothers Studios in Leavesden is home to many Harry Potter sets and scenery. (Our contributor, Emma, was particularly enthused!) First on the agenda wasContinue Reading

This evening, the Duchess of Cambridge attended a reception at the National Portrait Gallery in support of one of her patronages, The Art Room.

Hi Ho, Hi Ho, It’s Back to Work I (and soon Kate) Go…

Hi Ho, Hi Ho, It’s Back to Work I (and soon Kate) Go…

After the whole broken ankle fiasco, I finally made it back to work, officially, last week. This has meant two things for me: I’ve had to wake up early and get myself ready to leave the house before I’d even open my eyes before and that no matter what you do, going back to workContinue Reading

Working Girl: Time to Move On

I am certain we have all been there. You wake up one morning and you’re lying in bed, staring at the ceiling, and suddenly and all at once you hate your job. You don’t know how or why it happens, but one morning you really cannot stand it anymore. It takes all your effort toContinue Reading

Why Being a Princess is A Real Career… And How to Become One

Why Being a Princess is A Real Career… And How to Become One

I don’t normally watch episodes of Sesame Street, so forgive me for missing the news that Sonya Sotomayor was on recently and was discussing how girls needed to find a career- and how being a Princess was not a viable option. In case you did too, the video can be seen at the bottom ofContinue Reading

Get It Together : Making a List

I, like most people I imagine, wake up every morning with the best of intentions about how much I am going to accomplish during the day that lay ahead. Maybe today is the day I’ll knock things off my theoretical to-do list, finish that nagging chore or even take the time to organize some random cabinetContinue Reading

Finding the Perfect Kate-inspired Job

Finding the Perfect Kate-inspired Job

In today’s economy, finding a comfortable job is like finding the perfect pair of denim jeans. When you look at money, location, ideal qualities, you find yourself without jeans and without employment. You might find something that fits for a while, but with time, you find that wear has taken its toll. It is timeContinue Reading

Kate’s Fall(en) for Coats

Kate’s Fall(en) for Coats

Well friends, it’s been a rough couple of days for me with my beloved Mac having been in the Apple shop for a few days. What’s a blogger to do without a computer? As I discovered, they apparently obsessively call Apple and try to type posts on their iPads; unfortunately for me both were doneContinue Reading
