We are back with a number of updates, including one about the site. That news involves a slight overhaul of the site’s appearance. There won’t be major changes, but the switch should make the blog *much* easier to read on mobile devices. (Finally.) We’re also making a technical change (the company hosting the site); that is of little relevance for readers, but I thought I would share the heads-up in case you pop by and encounter any problems, like the site being slow to load. I’m crossing my fingers we won’t encounter too much difficulty when we make the change.

We begin our Kate-related news by wrapping up a few loose ends from recent posts. While I do update posts after they have been published, I know not everyone goes back to check for changes to the content. So here we go with a quick rundown:

  • The hat Kate wore for the 2nd day of events commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Passchendaele was a Jane Taylor design, but one we’ve seen before. We first saw the Duchess wearing the Fleur on her trip to Belgium in 2014 for ceremonies that marked another WWI centenary.  The hat was modified with different embellishments for the Passchendaele engagement.
