It’s been nearly three months since Kate Middleton’s pregnancy was announced, but the Duchess refuses to show more than a couple of pounds of baby bump. Kate and Prince William are in Mustique with the Middleton family, where they’re enjoying sun and sand before returning to London—and to their royal duties. She and Wills went all out, renting a private villa next to Kate’s family.
We have to point out that Kate’s baby bump is what the rest of humanity call a ‘food baby’, which is a tiny bump one gets after feasting during the holidays. Kate will not be one of the famous moms who gains 90lbs while pregnant—she is probably still a size 2 or 4! After her scary hospital trip, Kate is healthy and good spirits, and reportedly joked about how the pregnancy is making her butt bigger, but . . . she feels sexy!
The two – Kate and Will played on the beach in matching royal blue colored swim wear. One witness in Mustique said, “They’re inseparable! William joined Kate for an early morning swim; they were touching and kissing in the waves. When they came out of the water, he got down on his knees in front of Kate and kissed her baby bump.” It sounds like they’re really a normal couple!
Queen Elizabeth II celebrates her Diamond Jubilee. It’s an unbelievable event to be part of; this is only the second time in the history of the British monarchy that a ruler has been on the throne for 60 years (the last was Queen Victoria). It also offers fashion fans and royalists some of the best KATEWATCH opportunities.
Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton seems to be in love with PLEATS. The Duchess of Cambridge showed of her thrifty side by repeating her pink Emilia Wickstead frock to attend the Queen’s annual summer garden party held at Buckingham Palace. She wore the same dress to the Sovereigns’ Luncheon as part of the Queen’s ongoing Jubilee celebrations on May 18th. Only this time Kate updated the long sleeved blush pink pleated dress by adding a stunning pale pink hat designed by Jane Corbett.
On the first day’s celebrations, Kate looked striking in a patriotic red Alexander McQueen dress (it’s a sleeved version of a former design from A/W 2011) with a beautiful red hat by Sylvia Fletcher as she joined members of the Royal Family on The Spirit of Chartwell as it followed the flotilla of boats down the River Thames.
Kate Middleton may be the very model of a modesty, but one of her cousins, burlesque dancer Katrina Darling, stripped off on stage in New York last week, flaunting a butt every bit as shapely as her second cousin Pippa’s. Katrina Darling started off her racy performance wearing a red and gold patterned corset with a matching pair of knickers, gold fringed stilettos, white knee socks and a small crown on her head. By the end of it, she was completely naked, bar nipple pasties, a clip-on thong and a crown perched atop her head.
Katrina Darling works for Barclay’s Wealth Management in London. She was making her debut American appearance, performing her ‘God Save The Queen’ routine at the last Tuesday Night Dropout Party at W.I.P, a new SoHo club. Darling, who’s also a model and working on a lingerie line, has been performing since she was 18. She said, “I take my clothes off, but I don’t give away anything that should be kept for someone else.”
By the way Katrina didn’t even know she was related to Kate until she got engaged to Prince William. Kate and Katrina are related through Katrina’s grandmother who is the sister of the Duchess of Cambridge’s great-grandfather, making Darling a second cousin to Middletons. Darling told the New York Post she’s had no backlash from the royal family to her “God Save the Queen” act, and they are welcome to watch her perform: “I’d be happy for them to, but if they don’t, it’s not the end of the world.”
It was really fun watching the sexy Duchess, Kate Middleton and Prince William travel across US and Canada this past week, donning local costumery like kids at a multicultural parade at a politically correct elementary school, dressing as Cowboys and Kate looked truly amazing in Alexander McQueen on the red-carpet when she met the Hollywood Stars in Los Angeles.
But then I was totally flabbergasted when I came across this Canary yellow summer dress Kate Middleton upskirt picture where the winds played a blessed joke on the royals, for the benefit of gentleman oglers everywhere. Just a year ago, I can’t even imagine anybody getting excited over the prospect of leering up any British royal’s frock, but, oh, how times have changed. Just look at that little future queen’s bum. Bloody good show indeed. Enjoy.
P.S. Since we’re talking royal bums, at the same time as Duchess Catherine was flashing the bare bum in Canada, across the pond in the Old Country, little sister Pipa Middleton was showing a bit of the Middleton bottom muffins herself in a pair of skintight jeans.
Never ever in my wildest of dreams had I imagined a bride walking down the aisle in pants. But then fashion is shocking. Isn’t it?
Designer Oscar de la Renta showcased his Bridal 2012 collection at the New York Bridal Week 2012 and among array of glorious gowns, Renta presented a bridal ensemble comprising skinny pants, a sheer tunic and a fur stole. In fact the ensemble looks classy and gorgeous and I guess would be a great hit with those dreading stepping in to those voluminous gowns.
Now since we talking about Bridal Wear, what can be more newsy than the Royal Wedding on April 29th. Kate Middleton is reportedly wearing a wedding dress designed by a rather unheard of English Designer – Sophie Cranston of the Libélula label. In fact Kate wore a much-talked-about, vintage-inspired, Libélula black velvet dress coat with a diamante clasp for a friend’s wedding in Yorkshire this January. So all those speculation about McQueen Wedding Dress now goes off in thin air!
