French Sole (or London Sole, as it is known in the US) is a go-to brand for the Duchess of Cambridge, as well as her sister, Pippa Middleton.

Rules of EtiKate: Royal Party Etiquette

Some people see the royal family as old, outdated, and stuffy. I believe that is a major misconception of today’s royal family. The royals know how to have fun and they definitely know how to throw a good party. What makes them distinct, however, is their ability to party with an air of sophistication andContinue Reading
