We are back with your feedback and reviews of Kate-related items you have purchased, and some of the retailers selling that merchandise. First, a very fast glance at Kate’s time at Houghton Hall with George and Charlotte over the weekend.

The threesome went to watch the Houghton Hall Horse Trials, officially called the Houghton International Horse Trials. Only about a half-hour’s drive from Anmer Hall, the Hall, stables, church and other outbuildings are surrounded by 1000+ acres of land; the estate is also adjacent to Sandringham, the Queen’s private residence. It is an extraordinary country home built in the 1700s for Sir Robert Walpole, a country squire who served as Britain’s Prime minister for more than 20 years. Its collection of art, furniture, textiles and other items were showcased last year at Nashville’s Frist Center, in an exhibition titled Houghton Hall: Portrait of an English Country House.

It is an excellent location for events like the Horse Trials and other functions. This is where Kate is rumored to be hosting a black tie fundraiser for EACH (East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices) on the 22nd of this month. Below, Kate with Charlotte.

We are back with a quick look at the new official photos of Kate.  In yesterday’s post we spoke about the new solo shot of the Duchess, something initially covered last Thursday. Then we saw another new official photo, this one of Kate and William together. That picture was shared on Twitter this morning by Paul Ratcliffe.
