How to Network Like Kate: Part II

Last month I wrote an article which pondered how one might network like Kate. I discussed how it is important to be mindful of the very basics such as posture, approachability, and dress.

Whether we’re attending meetings […] Read more…

What Will Baby Cambridge Do? A Survey of Spares

When Prince George was born nearly two years ago, he entered the world with a definite degree of job security.  Like his father and grandfather, Cheeks as firstborn of an heir presumptive will grow up knowing that one day he will be King.  For the Duchess of Cambridge’s soon-to-be Prince or Princess, however, a future […] Read more…

How Kate Would Handle a Bad Day

Like many, I have a full schedule. I’m a mommy to a toddler, a graduate student, I work full-time and amongst all of that, there is laundry to be done, rooms to be dusted…you know how that goes! And the other day, I broke down. As in, sobbing-while-my-mascara-dripped-down-my-cheeks break down (so much for waterproof!). Let […] Read more…

Gracefully Handling an Inherently Rude Society

The entitlement of our society has cultivated some of the rudest people we have ever seen. We encounter rudeness everywhere. It’s the person who knowingly cuts in line at a store. It’s the obnoxious driver who feels the roadway is a Nascar course. It’s the co-worker who sees you walking behind her and doesn’t bother […] Read more…

Why the Duchess Never Stops Learning

  View image | gettyimages.com   Growing up, I imagined that princesses led a life of leisure.  Indeed, in real life, anti-monarchists promote an image of Kate lounging around Kensington Palace in a silk robe with more time on her hands than she knows how to use, and occasionally popping out to shake a few hands […] Read more…

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 anniversary […] Read more…

Can I please have a wedding like hers?

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 of […] Read more…
