Kate was out and about Saturday, joining her parents and sister Pippa at a wedding, longtime family friend Thierry Kelaart was married, Mr. Middleton actually gave the bride away.  We would love to share photos with you but neither of the agencies I purchase pictures from has them available, the best I can suggest is that you visit this story in the Mail.

The Duchess wore the silvery gray Erdem dress she was in for this year’s Trooping the Colour.

Kate did wear a new hat, it was created by Jane Corbett, as was June’s Trooping the Colour hat. The designer shared more in her blog, showing Saturday’s hat in process, shown below left, below right we show a closeup of the fabric from the dress, also incorporated in the new chapeau.

Kate also carried her grey suede clutch and a grey scarf, finishing off the look with her Sledge pumps in taupe.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

We also have updates on several appointments added to the royal calendar; much of the information comes via Majesty Magazine, I have merely added links and some photos.

Tuesday, 10.9.12:

William and Kate travel to the official opening of St. George’s Park, the new home to the Football Association and its National Football Centre.

The Football Association

This one makes a lot of sense, William is the honorary President of the Football Association.

Wednesday, 10.10.12:

1) The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will visit Newcastle Civic Centre in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne. While there they will meet several groups of people.

  • people who made the 2012 Games successful in the Newcastle area
  • students from Percy Hedley School, the school specializes in teaching pupils with motor skill challenges
  • representatives from the Institute for Ageing and Health, among other activities, groundbreaking research is carried out at the Institute

2) Kate and William then go to Elswick Park, for a Fields in Trust event, part of the Queen Elizabeth II Fields Challenge. Some may recall a June Fields In Trust event the couple did with HM. The Elswick visit will include an outdoor sporting/learning activity and a look at a garden run by the West End Women and Girls.

3) The couple’s next appointment is a visit to a youth charity, Keyfund, at Gateshead Youth Council in Gateshead.

4) The final event for the day is at CRI Stockton Recovery Service, located in Stockton-On-Tees. The facility is partnering with Action on Addiction for the group’s M-PACT program, Action on Addiction is one of Kate’s patronages.

Thursday, 10.11.12

  • Prince William again hosts the 100 Women in Hedge Funds dinner, Kate is not expected to attend this year (you may read more about last year’s gala here)

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

We also have an ID to share on a pair of shoes, going back to January of 2011 when Kate and William attended the wedding of friends Harry Aubrey-Fletcher and Louise Stourton.  Many will recall the event when seeing a photo.

Mirrorpix / Splash News

Kate wore her popular Libelula Dulwich coat in black silk velvet. Prince Harry, Princess Beatrice and her longtime beau Dave Clark also attended.

Mirrorpix/Splash News

One of the more intriguing UFOs has been the shoes worn by Kate that day. After months and months of looking, it seems they are by a brand Kate has previously favored, Mascaro.  A big tip of the fascinator to WKW Faceboook friend Lizzie Darcy, she deserves the credit for this ID.

Splash News/eBay

As you can see, the oversize grosgrain bows look identical, heel height is the same, and other features seem to match. A great find by Lizzie, she shared that she long believed the heels were by Mascaro, so she steadfastly watched eBay auctions and other sites in an effort to locate the shoes.

Kate has previously worn the brand, notably the black pumps at Christmas, as well as the Pretty Ballerinas (a Mascaro brand) bag carried to the War Horse premiere and other events, shown below.

Splash News

The bag carried to the 2011 wedding is very similar, but not identical, the placement of the bow is different.

Splash News January 2011

But otherwise it looks *very* similar.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

We wanted to let readers know about another ‘app’ for those interested in Kate’s style. “RepliKate Me” has been on the market for a bit over 6 weeks, available via the App Store.

Apple App Store

The app is the brainchild of Emma Poole, she came up with the idea when shopping in Wales and noticed how many retailers had displays directly related to what Kate wore. Her brother has IT experience and helped her develop the program. Emma shared that the app shows “… high street and online replicas of Kate’s looks, with links and stock information to help you make a purchase….”. Emma’s goal with the app is to show users reasonably priced items similar to Kate’s.

Below, an example of suggestions for copying the Roland Mouret dress worn to Claridge’s in June.

Repli-Kate Me App via The App Store

As Emma notes, “Some of Kate’s pieces are unique and specially commissioned for her, or are beyond the budget of even her most loyal fans. For those who desire something similar but affordable, the app recommends items to make a “replikate” of the original.”

There is also a RepliKate Me Facebook page, the app sells for $1.99.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Our final tidbit today is something a bit out of the ordinary, it involves my friend Megan.  Megan happens to be an author, and her very first novel is being published soon.

A Royal Pain by Megan Mulry

A Royal Pain by Megan Mulry’ is due out November 1, but I was lucky because Megan sent me an advance copy of the book. The novel even received a starred review in Publishers Weekly, getting a star on a review is a *big* deal, I was beyond tickled for Megan.

Publishers Weekly

More from that review:

Mulry debuts with a delightful love story between Bronte Talbott and her modern-day duke. Bronte loves everything pop culture, including ”perhaps especially”royal gazing, mostly because it annoys her intellectual father.

Mulry creates a completely fleshed-out character in Bronte, with her insecurity issues and her envious good luck. She and the other characters make this charming book worth reading again and again.

Not to give away the plot, but Bronte learns about the challenges of marrying a duke. I can tell you that Megan knows her royalty, the ins and out of society’s upper crust, as well as the decisions faced by working women in today’s culture. I loved reading it: Megan is one gifted writer and the book more-than-qualified as a page turner.

So why am I blathering on about the book? Because Megan agreed I could give away my ARC (Advance Reader’s Copy) here on the blog. It’s sure to be something of a collector’s item, I know that A Royal Pain is certain to be a bestseller, there’s no doubt Megan is destined for stardom as an author. (You can learn more about her by visiting her website or following her on Twitter.)

Even though the book isn’t out yet, you can pre-order it via Barnes & Noble or Amazon. To win my copy, just leave a comment and we’ll draw a name at the end of the week.

We’ll be back later this week with the results of all Royal Tour polls. (Dress poll #1 is here, Dress poll #2 is here, and the Accessories polls are here

  1. Competition:

    what I really like the best about the dutches style is that she seems
    to wear the right outfit for each occasion.
    Ans that seems not very easy to me in her position.
    so I don’t know if she gets much help with that, but she does great!!
    Besides she has so many followers, all loving this site…

  2. Thank you for identifying those fabulous purple shoes! Now, if only I could find a pair in my size :-)

    As for the unidentified purple bag, I’m wondering if it’s an old LK Bennett bag. Look at this ebay listing. Although it’s a print, it has the same lines as the purple bag. What do you think?

  54. Be still my beating heart! …I am somewhat shyly obsessed with British royalty. I would love this book to pieces. :)

  55. I love the idea of a book giveaway – can I enter if I live in Australia or is it US only?

  56. I would love to read the book! BTW, I love your website…

  57. HAH! I thought the embroidery on her hat matched the embroidery on the dress when I saw the Daily Mail story! I know that in general WKW commenters did not think highly of the Erdem during the Trooping of the Color outing, but I think the dress is much more flattering when paired with this hat. I read in the DM story that the Duchess pulled the brim of her hat down over her face to prevent paparazzi photos, so this hat has both aesthetic and practical appeal!

    The purple shoes and bag are lovely, but I don’t really care for them paired with the rest of the outfit (which is stunning, in my opinion). I know that in fashion parlance they would be referred to as a “pop of color,” and the shoes and bag wouldn’t break any so-called fashion rules because they are paired with a neutral. However, I never feel that outfits with a “pop of color” look put together; they always seem mismatched to me. Does anyone else feel the same? (I realize this is the absolute wrong season to be admitting to this, since I’ve seen different prints paired together all over the runway. *sigh* Not a trend that I’ll be able to copy, I’m afraid, since I can’t even bear the “pop of color” accessory.)

    I’m intrigued by the protagonist’s first name in Megan’s book. Do we know if she is intentionally referencing the last name of authors Charlotte, Jane, and Emily? (I realize her protagonist’s name is missing the umlaut over the “e,” so the names aren’t identical.) Or is this just a very common name in the UK of which I’m unaware?

    On a final note, while I know this blog is not the place to discuss Pippa’s fashion, I thought Pippa and the bride both looked remarkably stunning. Pippa’s dress was very “Pippa,” of course, and not something that I imagine we will ever see the Duchess in. However, I thought the designs on her dress (is that laser cut?) were very fashion forward. And I liked that color.

    • Hi AshleyOlivia,

      Thank you so much for your interest in A Royal Pain! Yes, Bronte’s name is a nod to Charlotte (I am a huge Jane Eyre fan), but it was not the original name I’d chosen for the character. I had first named her Bronwyn, but my daughter (10 years old at the time I was writing) demanded I change it because, “I just don’t like the sound of it.” And Bronte’s father was a literature professor, so it had the added benefit of making sense within the plot.

      Thanks again for commenting!

      • Thank you for responding! I’m actually a PhD student in Literature, so all the more reason to buy your book. (Unlike Bronte’s father, however, I obviously have no problem with “royal gazing,” though people in my department love to tease me about it.) I love the story about your daughter demanding a different name. I hope she was happy with Bronte!

  58. I can’t get enough of your site!!! Keep up the excellent work :)

  59. I check your site daily and am constantly being teased by my husband for my obsession with all things royal. I think the book sounds like a great read and a nice glimpse into what it must be like to find yourself within royal circles for the first time.

  60. Love your site, and the book sounds like a great read!

  61. I would love to read this book! Just the thing for curling up in front of a fire on a winter day.

  62. The book sounds like a fantastic read! Absolutely love your site! Thanks for all of your hard work! :)

  63. Wow!!! Thanks for the free giveaway. I love your website and I visit nearly every day. I’m getting an iphone later this week actually, and I am excited to download the app. :) I am also hopeful to have my name drawn for the book! :)

    Susan, I think you should sign the copy! :)

  64. On my way to the app store now for the app :-) The book looks fun too, I’m adding to my TBR list…

  65. Love your blog – I check it almost every day. I think this would be a great book to win! Thanks for the opportunity.

  66. .. the wine colored Mascaro shoes are gorgeous ! swoon-worthy color.. I wish——- ! (first time I’ve wanted to buy something on this site, for me. I’m sure they’re prohibitively priced so am consoling myself with the reminder that grosgrain bows are probably too young for me.. sigh)

    so thank you, Lizzie!

    on another note.. the silver gray Erdem, second-time-’round STILL looks like magnificent upholstery to me (!) but Kate maintains unflappable loveliness and grace- of course- and pulls it off beautifully.

    I prefer the second, more delicate Jane Corbett hat..

    thank you for this site! checking in every week or so means, always, a few moments of innocent delight-

  67. I adore this blog – I check in on it almost every single day!!! I’d love to win the advance copy!!!

  68. Love your site. The app looks fantastic as I’m always looking for ways to replicate Kate’s look. And the book sounds great. Hope to win :)

  69. I would love to read the book- I hope I win, but if not I may have to purchase it based on your review.

  70. Would love the book! :) It sounds like such a fun read! :) Will it be available in Canada?

  71. I’d love to win the book! Or own those shoes, for that matter.

  72. Would love to win the book! Sounds like a great read!

  73. Love your blog!

  74. Your characteristically generous spirit shines so very often – and never more brilliantly than now when you are supporting your friend. Well done!

  95. I think my book club would enjoy the book!

  101. Thanks so much for this site and all the work you do to keep us Will and Kate fans up to the minute informed.

I might just have to purchase if I don’t win it. “Wink, wink”

  102. The book sounds great, hope you pick me!!

  105. Book looks interesting! Also, can’t wait to see Will and Kate in a week!

  106. Sounds like a great read!

  107. I would have a copy of the book! I’m a faith follower of Royal Family stories and I love what Kate wore both the blog and The Duchess’s style. Last but not least, I’m italian and read the book would be a great occasion to practice my english ; )

  108. Sounds great! I’d love to read Megan’s book! xx

  109. Enjoy reading your blog, and seeing the details of “What Kate Wore.” And the book sounds like a fun read—so obviously, I’d like to win your special copy.

  110. Thanks for the great site – and for purchasing the images (I only realised this today).
    Would love to read the book!

    Keep up the good work
    x

  111. First off – I would love to know if somewhere has more pictures of HRH’s friend Thierry’s wedding dress – it looks gorgeous! As does the bride, and HRH as well!
    Secondly, I would also love to win the book! Otherwise I will have to wait and see if I can order it to ship to Australia :-)

  112. That book sounds fascinating so of course I’d like to win a copy! However, I’m in the UK so perhaps that rules me out.

    Hats off to Lizzie for identifying the shoes from long ago. I’m really impressed by her will and determination and sheer doggedness. Give the girl a medal :)

  113. Wow! That sounds like just the kind of book I would usually read – woohoo! If I don’t win it will go on the Christmas list!

  114. The book sounds great! And the Queen also replicates her clothes too. I still love that Dulwich coat, Kate should wear it again

  115. Ohh!! A real book! Not a digital download. Would love to Winn this one

  116. The book sounds lovely.

    P.S. I love Kate’s plum shoes. They are beautiful!

  117. The book sounds great, I would love to read it!

  118. Not only do I love reading but I love your blog, Kate, and royal reading. I’d be delighted to win this ARC!

  119. The book sounds great! Can’t wait to read it.

  120. I would love to read the book too!

  121. I have a question about Kate’s wedding hat — don’t you think it looks like the potato chip hat she wore to — I think — Zara’s wedding? She is so sensitive to the feelings of the bride, never wearing anything new (except that Beulah *cough*). As for those GORGEOUS purple shoes, a big tip of the fascinator from me too. Has she ever worn a purple dress? Bet it would look marvelous.

    • The Prabal Gurung she wore on the tour had purple in the design. I think this Jane Corbett has a similar shape to the Gina Foster hat from Zara Philips’s wedding, but the Foster was *much* larger. Which Beulah are you referring to? I only remember the Beulah from the tour and the red dress she wore to an event last year.

  122. I really liked that dress, I’m so glad she wore it again! I think sometimes Kate repeats her outfits at weddings so that it doesn’t draw as much attention away from the star of the show – the bride.

  123. Sounds like a great book! I would LOVE to read it! :)

  124. The book looks so cute!

  125. Ordering from Amazon. Sounds a fun chick lit book….thanks for the tip. Both the book and the shoes..love you. <3

  126. Oooooooooohhh!! I would love to win that book — sounds interesting!

  127. That book looks like so much fun! Even if I don’t win, I will be sure to check it out.

  128. Sounds like a delightful book.

  129. This book sounds fabulous!! And thanks for the tip on the app!

  130. Thanks so much for your WKW blog! I’m interested in the new book, but wondering about the language & sexual content. Any idea?

    • Hi Melissa, that’s a great question. There is language that many would consider inappropriate, and the book is in the ‘contemporary romance’ genre (or category I think it’s called), there are definitely some racy/steamy scenes. I’m glad you asked! :)

      • Hi Melissa, Yes, as Susan said, there are definitely steamy scenes and Bronte has a terrible swearing habit that she’s tries to rein in on formal occasions. As for categories and genres, there are so many subdivisions these days, but A Royal Pain is technically Women’s Fiction (the publisher’s designation) so it will be in the Fiction section of the bookstore instead of the Romance section. Hope that helps.

  131. I can’t wait for winter to see what Kate will wear this year! And since I love anything about royals, fiction or not, I would love to read Megan’s book!

  132. The book sounds so intriguing! Hope I win!

  133. Sounds like a great book!

    • I can’t leave a comment, but I can leave a reply… Thanks for such a fun blog. I would love to read Megan’s book!

  140. Please enter me in Megan’s book contest. It sounds like a fun read.

  141. I really love your blog and come to it regularly. I don’t always leave comments…I’m a bit shy that way but I would love to read that book.

I am shy about commenting over there, but I have SUCH fun checking it – especially recently, when they were on tour. It’s a wonderful community, and I know it’s not a small amount of work.

  154. The book sounds great-I hope I win.

  155. Ooh that book sounds fabulous! I would love to read it! Crossing fingers, toes, and eyes!

  156. Wow, that book sounds great! Would love a copy (and a pair of those Mascaro shoes, lol).
