In November of 2010, the world went speechless as Prince William, a man we had all watched grow up before our eyes, stepped out with his beautiful girlfriend, Kate Middleton.
Dressed in a gorgeous blue Issa dress, with those enviable locks, all eyes immediately went to the 12-carat sapphire previously worn by the people’s Princess (RIP DIANA) on her left ring finger. After years of speculation, the couple had finally committed to each other and set off to plan their April 29th, 2011 wedding.
We know how the story goes. They marry before a billion people, we all woke up at 4 am to ooh, ahh, cry, laugh, and obsess over every second of the day. (I thought the dress was gorgeous, but safe) Two years later, we did the same as awaited the birthday of adorable Prince George. (Sidenote: I had a news feed up on my computer awaiting the debut of the little babe when I went into a meeting and my boss requested I shut off my computer. I’ve never forgiven him for making me watch the replay an hour later.). Another two years later, with a little less anticipation, we welcomed Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana (RIP DIANA).
Over the last four years, royal fever has reached heights unseen since the tragic death of Diana (RIP DIANA) in 1997. This space will give you all the updates, speculation, and fashion review on the British royals, even the lesser known ones. (Do you know Princess Michael of Kent? She’s fabulous.)
