Kate Middleton showed up to the England v Wales rugby match on Saturday, September 26, with Prince William and Prince Harry wearing flower-printed pants (Kate wore the flower pants, not Harry). Such whimsy from someone so un-whimsical. Then yesterday, new pap photos of Prince George and Princess Charlotte showed up in an Australian tabloid.
What should we start with? Let’s start with George and Charlotte because what is there really to talk about with a rugby match other than clothes and funny faces?
George and Charlotte were photographed outside Kensington Palace with Nanny Maria watching a royal helicopter land on the grounds (the helicopter was carrying Princess Anne). The article accompanying the photos does not say when they were taken, but they are clearly fairly recent.
It’s interesting that these photos exist. I guess KP’s threatening letter didn’t do much to sway the paparazzi nor the publishers interest in taking and publishing photos like these. What do you think KP will do now? William probably won’t publicly complain immediately since it is an Australian mag and Will/KP can’t control the foreign media, but do you think there will be another letter in the near future? Or will they just never release any more photos of the kids as some sort of payback? Or will they release photos but only over social media as some sort of “screw you” to the press? Hm…
Do you guys want a George throwback pic? Sure you do. Charlotte looks so much like George, right?
On to Kate and those flower pants.
As I mentioned, Harry, William, and Kate attended the England v Wales rugby match on Saturday at Twickenham Stadium. Harry is Honorary President of England 2015 and Vice-Patron of the Rugby Football Union (since 2010) while William is Vice Royal Patron of the Welsh Rugby Union (since 2007). So Harry wore white as he cheered England, and William wore red as he cheered Wales. Kate wore black, mostly, but wore a red scarf and cheered Wales. Wales beat England 28 to 25, so William and Kate were thrilled while Harry looked a bit miffed.
Kate wore the “Floral Print Trousers” ($39.90) from Zara. Kate brought out a new pair of Catherine Zoraida earrings, the “Fern Hoop Earrings” in gold (£150.00).
Kate also wore what looks like a fur trimmed black blazer, a black shirt underneath, and a red scarf that probably the one she wore during the Canada tour in 2011 and to Christmas in 2012. She carried a black clutch.
As I said up top, such whimsy from someone so un-whimsical. Kate hardly ever wears pants to begin with and then she busts out flower pants. So odd. But I like the Catherine Zoraida earrings. I love Kate’s other pair of Catherine Zoraida earrings, too (the Double Leaf earrings she debuted in 2012 and wore to Uluru and Christmas in 2014).
Here are some more photos from the match including William side-hugging Kate, and some funny faces.
Here’s some Prince Harry and his Ginger Beard. Also, Harry’s faces in some of these photos are great. Harry wasn’t too thrilled that England lost.
