  1. Baby Cambridge white crochet blanket.
    Which brand is it and where can we buy it?
    Thank you.

  2. Hi!

    Was browsing Hobbs online and noticed the fur collar (Kate wore it in brown to the Swiss wedding over the weekend of March 2-3, 2013).


  3. Kate’s Wedding Shoes were made at Alexander McQueen’s:

    Wedding Shoes
    The wedding shoes have made hand-made by the team at Alexander McQueen and are made of ivory duchesse satin with lace hand-embroidered by the Royal School of Needlework.

  4. Hello,

    I’m not sure if the info on Kate’s cowboy boots worn in Calgary is correct. It was reported by the Calgary Herald that they were custom-made ostrich and kangaroo leather cowboy boots, crafted especially for her (and William) by the Alberta Boot Co.

    • Hello Janet, thank you for reading *and* commenting on the blog! As an FYI, Kate did not wear the boots made by Mr. Gerwing. If you look at photos of the boots he made they have ostrich on the foot, and are clearly different from the boots she wore. I hoped she would wear them one of the two days, William wore his, but she did not, at least not in any of the photos we have seen. If you do a search for ‘Gerwing boots kate’ you should see links to the news stories and photos. Thank you again Janet! :)

  5. Good morning.
    I am a fifty-something American woman — I mean, thirty-something! ;-) — watching the British Royals tour Canada … I learned of your site in the Twitter stream of a European newspaper … and thanks to your site, I’ve just learned about the Maasai people in Loitokitok!

    I marvel at that there ARE e-industries dedicated to Their Royal Highnesses … I am thrilled to watch — streaming live! — their genuine Love for one another, caring connections with others, and interest in and respect for places and traditions … and I write to thank YOU for the KIND and POSITIVE overtones of your writings — and, okay, for the just-plain FUN of knowing What Kate Wore! (Clearly deserving of caps! lol)
    Continuing, positive, JOY-full success to you in ALL your endeavors. Thanks again for providing, with Their Royal Highnesses, my ‘JOY fix’ (truly medicinal — and needed in my work). You have Gifts. Keep using them kindly and JOY-fully!

  9. Hello,

    I am apologize if this is not the proper way to contact you, however, I did try to send something over Facebook with no success. I thought the people that “like” your page on Facebook would love this link:

    The New York magazine published a Look Book for Kate. It chronicles her style over the last couple of years.

    Kind Regards,
