The Royal Report

Mar 13, 2014
Hey, don't forget! There is less than a week left to enter the 100 Books to Read in a Lifetime Giveaway!

My favorite English family as been out and about a lot this year. Here's a report of what they've been up to...

January 9 – The Duchess of Cambridge turns 32!

January - The search is on for a new nanny for Prince George! Jessie Webb, 71, came out of retirement to help at the beginning of his life, but it is now reported that her duties have come to an end. Rumor has it that the current nanny candidate is young and European.

January 25 - Kate takes Prince George on a Middleton family vacation to Mustique. The pair, along with Kate's brother James, fly commercial. Kate does not take a nanny. Reports say that this trip was to celebrate Carole Middleton's 59th birthday!

January 31 – Carole Middleton turns 59!

February 6 - Princes Harry and William flew to southern Spain for some shooting. They bagged wild boar and stag on their bro weekend.
While the princes are off in Spain, Pippa Middleton attends the wedding of Arabella Musgrave, Prince William's ex girlfriend. It has been widely reported that Arabella was the only girl who could make Kate jealous. 

February 11 - Kate attends a gala for The National Portrait Gallery. She recycled a Jenny Packham gown and wore borrowed jewels from The Queen. 

February 14 - Kate makes a visit to Northolt High School in Ealing on behalf of her charity, The Art Room. She is wears an LK Bennett dress and what is said to be an "eternity ring" from Prince William. Was it a birthday or Valentine's gift?

While Kate is visiting the school, Princes William and Harry help out  in flooded areas of London.

February 17 - Kate accompanies The Queen to the Dramatic Arts Reception for British actors and actresses held at Buckingham Palace. She re wears a red Alexander McQueen number and meets movie stars such a Helen Mirren and Meryl Streep.

February 18 - Harry took girlfriend, Cressida Bonas, to Royal Albert Hall for Cirque de Soleil's Quidam for her 25th birthday. They sit in the royal box.

February - Kate becomes godmother to one of her close university friend's son. No details were released.

February - Kate is spotted wearing a Merci Maman necklace reportedly gifted to her by her sister Pippa. Possibly a birthday gift?

February - The Queen has a custom t-shirt made for her great grandson, Prince George.

February 25 - Pippa Middleton speaks at the Women in Advertising and Communications dinner in London. Her speech included the now famous quote: “As I have found out, recognition has its upside, it's downside and - you may say - it's backside." Pippa also said of her 2011 bridesmaid's gown that she was "glad it fitted" at the time of the royal wedding, but added, "In retrospect, it fitted a little too well."

March 1 - William and Kate enjoy a night out celebrating a friend's birthday at the London bar Bunga Bunga.

March 2  - An official announcement was made that, yes, Prince George will be going on his parents' tour of Australia and New Zealand in April!

March 3 - Kate attends a leaving party (I think that means retirement party in American) for Sir Marcus Setchell, the doctor who helped deliver Prince George. Setchell also delivered the Countess of Wessex's two children and served The Queen as Surgeon-Gynecologist.

March 4 - The Wales' official down under tour schedule is released (more on this later).

March 6 - Will and Kate head to the Maldives for vacation, leaving Prince George in the care of Grandma and Grandpa Middleton.

March 7 - Price Harry's girlfriend, Cressida Bonas, attends her first official function with him. They attended We Day in the UK for the Free the Children charity where he was the keynote speaker. Princess Beatrice, who introduced Harry and Cressy, also attended the event.

March 8 - Harry and Cressy cheered on the England and Wales Rugby teams at Twickenham where they were competing in the Six Nations.
