A new Kate sighting! This time at an event hosted by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at St. James’s Palace for the National Memorial Arboretum Appeal. Kate wore a custom Jenny Packham design, which the designer described as a "silver chiffon satin asymmetric gown." We're fans. Even if the colour is muted we think it suits Kate, as does the artful draping and one-shoulder design (and, no, we don't think it has anything to do with hiding a bun in the oven, either).
Kate accessorized with the same Jimmy Choo heels and diamond bracelet she wore to the BAFTA event in L.A., as well as new crystal drop earrings (confirmed as Beaut Jewellery from a collection available exclusively through Jenny Packham) and a simple red poppy. The event came on the heels of the news that Prince William will be stationed in the Falklands for six weeks in 2012, news that the Argentine government apparently did not have a positive reaction to.
|Chelsy and Harry in Happier Days|
We've admittedly never been big supporters of Chelsy Davy, but a recent Daily Mail story about the royal ex has certainly upped our opinion of her, if true. Apparently Chelsy was offered an astronomical sum to dish the dirt on Prince Harry in a book. Chelsy, who admittedly doesn't want for cash, refused out of loyalty to her ex. At least there is one person out there able to keep their lips zipped in this age of social media and total exposure! The article also goes on to state that it was the royal wedding that made Chelsy realize her relationship with Harry had no future. Apparently, Ms. Davy took one look at all the pomp and circumstance within the fish bowl and knew that the royal life wasn't for her. For his part Harry was said to be quite understanding. How can you not love the ginger Prince?!
