We are back with few quick updates, as well as a followup or two on topics discussed and debated in this space the last several days.

Our first order of business: an addition to Kate’s Calendar. Kensington Palace announced the engagement on Twitter.

The Duchess returns to Portsmouth a week from Sunday, July 26th.  Many readers will remember her February trip to the area. (Kate was in Max Mara’s ‘Villar’ coat and a dress from the Somerset by Alice Temperley for John Lewis collection.) In February Kate helped finish up a mural local students had been painting near the Ben Ainslie Racing headquarters. Sir Ben is leading Great Britain’s efforts to win the Cup in 2017.

After arriving at the airport to fly home yesterday I plugged in the iThing and had a delightful surprise: Kate and George joined other family members at a charity polo match.

We are back a few quick updates and several retail notes of interest.

First, the latest on Kate’s schedule:

  • From all reports it seems Kate, George and Charlotte continue enjoying their time at Anmer Hall, the Cambridge’s country retreat on the grounds of Sandringham
  • The Sunday Times reported there will be more royal engagements with Prince George, quoting who say George will be “more visible over the next few months”. The article notes William & Kate realize there is “…good-natured [in him] from people”. The full story is here, but be aware it is behind a paywall, so if interested in reading the entire piece you will need to be, or become, a subscriber. (But the gist of the story is really in the first two paragraphs which are readily seen.)
  • As noted on Twitter by our friend Patricia Treble, the first family photos of Kate and William with George were released 30 days after his birth. It’s possible we are close to new family pictures being released with Charlotte.
