  1. Under May, there is Friday May 11 and Saturday May 13. The 12th has disappeared!

  2. Paris could be quite tough as the French can be hypercritical in matters of fashion and cuisine. It will be interesting to see what the French media say.

    That said the Queen Consort as she then was scored a hit in 1938 with her all white wardrobe designed by Norman Hartnell. Her father had just died but white is a mourning colour in France.

    • I am French and I can assure you that white has never been a mourning color in France. It is in India that people wear white clothing at a funeral.

  3. Hi, Susan.

    I was just wondering when we can expect to see the results from the most recent polls. “What Kate Wore” is one of my guilty pleasures and I’m always looking forward to a new post.


  4. Hi! Just wondering… Any ideas if we will see Kate at this year’s St. Patrick’s day ceremony? I mean the one where she presents shamrocks to members of the Irish Guard… Just asking :-)


  5. Me encanta Kathy, la adoro y sigo todas sus apariciones en publico.
    felicitaciones por esta pagina

  6. Hi was wondering if there would be anymore calendars made. I missed the calendar this year due to being out of the country. I really hope that I can get one.

    • Hi Ashley, and thanks for your interest in our calendars. I’m sorry you weren’t able to get one. Unfortunately, we are all out and won’t be printing more. Would you like me to get in touch with you in case we have any returned?

  7. Just wondering if there will be another What Kate Wore calendar this year? I was very happy with the one I got last year. Well done!

    • I’m so happy you like your 2016 version, that’s wonderful to hear. Yes, there will be a 2017 Calendar, details coming very shortly! :)

      • Good Day What Kate Wore Team.

        I hope I am able to get one for 2017. I missed out last year as there were no more available. I am just a little concerned I won’t get it for the second time in part because of the time difference between USA and Europe. What time of day would you post that the calendars are available so I can have a chance to purchase before they are all sold out? Also, what size would they be in, 12×12?

        Thank you Kindly!!

        • Hello, and thank you for your interest in our calendars. They’re now available in our little storefront. This year we’re offering both a wall calendar (10.5″ x 16″ when hanging on the wall) and a desktop calendar. Here is a link to the store: http://bit.ly/WKWStore (I sent an email with calendar info, but to make sure you get the information, I thought I should also respond here.) :)

    • To Kate and William

  8. Kate has engagements with Willam on October 14 in Manchester

  9. I actually think Penzance has a claim to being a city. Its population is larger than Truro’s, after all. And St Ives could be called a “small city”. My mother came from a place in the US with a population about the size of that in St Ives, and it’s called a city. Granted, it’s located in a state that doesn’t have much to offer in the way of urban environments, so perhaps it’s a city only by way of comparison. Or, perhaps, it’s just ambitious.

    • Here in the UK, as I understand it, a place is only called a city if it has a cathedral in it. Truro has the only cathedral in Cornwall, therefore it is the only city!

      • That’s true, Pippa. I was merely musing on the irony of the larger Penzance NOT being called a city.

        • City status in the United Kingdom is granted by the monarch of the United Kingdom. The main criteria is there must be a cathedral there. Size is not as important now.
          If a town wishes to obtain the title of a city the proper method of procedure is to address a petition to the Queen through the Home Office. It is the duty of the Home Secretary to submit such petitions to her Majesty and to advise her Majesty to the reply to be returned.
          Penzance does not have a cathedral so does not qualify.

  10. Do they ever eat when on engagements?

    • By looking at Kate, my guess would be no.

      • Unless the rules have changed, no photos are allowed of royals eating.

        • I may be wrong, but I’m not aware of such a rule. There are frequently photos and videos of British royal family members eating. Most recently we saw Kate and William doing that at the Taste of British Columbia in Canada. If one does a search for “Charles Camilla eating” there are many pictures of them eating at a variety of engagements.

  11. What happen with Kate’s calendar????

  12. I just read that Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau has invited all four Cambridges to Canada next year for a royal tour to celebrate the country’s 150th anniversary. Any rumors yet on whether or not this might become official?? (I mean, can you just, for one second, imagine the photos? The wardrobe? Prince George and Princess Charlotte??) :-)

    Waiting for an announcement…fingers crossed!

  13. Prince “Harry” real name is Henry, not his title. His full name is Henry Charles Albert David but, he has always been called Harry.

  14. I wonder if the DoC will attend a 2016 Garden Party and perhaps wear again her Christopher Kane shiny blue coatdress

  15. For the June 30th event, you’ve written Price Henry of Wales. Should be Harry. :)

    • Thank you for letting me know about the typo on ‘Prince,” my bad! Harry’s official title is “Prince Henry of Wales,” Harry is his nickname. :)

      • Oh! I didnt know his official title has Henry in it. Interesting! Thank you for pointing that out :)

  16. Gosto muito de ver seu site,sou brasileira e acho muito lindo a monarquia da inglaterra,principalmente a nova geração e aqui voce é a primeira a comentar muito bom,beijos

  17. When will the Queen have her Christmas Lunch for all of the Royals….Thank you for this web site……………….I really enjoy it…………..Mildred

    • Yes, I would expect the Queen will have her annual Christmas luncheon, probably the 15th 16th of December. Thank you for commenting Mildred, it’s wonderful seeing that you enjoy the site. :)

  18. The Festival of Remembrance (November 7) at the Royal Albert Hall is an event that if your a senior member of the Royal Family and in the country, you attend, likewise Remembrance Sunday (November 8) where Catherine watches from the balcony. The focus is very much on the veterans and current servicemen of the Armed Forces, and the Royal Family are seen in military uniform, with the exception of The Queen – although I guess as she served during WWII, she could wear it if the fancy took her – and the wives who watch from the balconies. As Catherine is not seen very often during these two events, you must have a nightmare in trying to observe what she is wearing :)

  19. Happy early birthday to me! I had no clue about the 10/23 engagements so I’m excited to kick off my weekend with this news! Looking forward to another great post!!

  20. The duchess has confirmed 2 engagements on the 27th, 1 of them the 100 Women in Hedge Funds Gala. There is also an engagement on the 26th, and possibly the state banquet on the 20th. :)

  21. I think it’s a very strong possibility Kate will attend the 100 Women in Hedge Funds gala on Oct. 27 in London 1) She’s attended the event (twice?) before and 2)It benefits her patronage The Art Room

  22. I’ll be in London next week and would love to see Kate at one of her engagements. Do you have any idea if the public will be able to see her at either?

  23. March 17th is not Friday… It will be Tuesday :) Hope she will be there, BTW! :D

  24. Does anyone know where I could possibly see/meet the Duchess when she’s in New York. Which engagements would most likely result in a walkabout? Also will they release any addresses for the press or anything like that? I really just love to see Kate in person! Any help would be great! Thanks!

  25. Could we start guessing what designer she might wear for these events? It would be fun. I think she will wear a Jenny Packham gown for the Royal Variety Performance.

  26. The SportsBall for SportsAid is November 27th. Kate is not confirmed to be there, but their website is using a promo picture of the Duchess to promote it. Place2Be is also having a Christmas Concert on December 7. Kate may attend either of these.

  27. They should add that on the 22nd it’s prince Georges birthday

  28. Sth to add to the calendar: 4 August 2014, Kate & William are coming to Belgium to attend remembrance ceremony for World War 1, as is mentioned in our quality newspaper ‘De Standaard’ today: http://www.standaard.be/cnt/dmf20140427_01083118

  29. I just wanted to mention how similar Kate’s dress on Valentines day was to on Sophie of Wessex wore once except Sophie’s had long sleeves. I think she wore it at Easter.

  30. She looked beautiful at the christening :)

  31. There is one green army jacket Kate wore in May when she was volunteering at a Boy Scout camp in Windermere and I am absolutely in love with it! Does anyone know the designer or where I can get it?! I’ve been researching but I cannot find it :(

  32. Just curious if it is known that these engagements now being held at KP are because it is a nice venue associated with royal patronages, or are specifically chosen or decided upon with Kate and William in a hosting capacity (in which case you would definitely expect one or the other or both to attend).

  33. What kind of coat did she wear on 6.12.2012.? I would like to buy the same. Thanks

    • If it’s the blue tweed one you’re thinking of, then it’s by Missoni. Don’t know if you can still find it, but you might try etsy.com for a repli-Kate. Pretty sure I’ve seen it there.

  34. Wow I just can’t wait for the christening ! It’s going to be so exciting and Kate will wear something beautiful I’m sure.

  35. Wow she looked stunning

  36. There is a great deal to admire about Kate and she is a wonderful adddition to thr RF.
    I must say however that I am thoroughly sick of those beige shoes!!!!!
    The blue dress and the one for the church service don’t fit. Perhaps Kate is trying so hard not to look like she’wearing maternity clothes when clearly she is radiantly happy to be so.
    I also think she’s worked hard not to upstage others and that’to her credit. But this outfit (HM 60th anniversary church service) is a gigantic YAWNn.

  37. It’s a shame that William cannot attend the gala for centerpoint on his own. maybe he could take one of the people who work there or live there. of course we want everyone to be happy and healthy first.

  38. I think the recent news of the Duchess’s pregnancy and her unfortunate experience with hyperemesis gravidarum (horrible condition, nothing like the usual morning sickness) will alter her schedule. They seem to have annouced early owing to her hospitalization. We may not see much of her for a while.

  39. Very helpful. Thank you.

  40. Yay! No more searching! Thanks Susan!!

  41. I can’t wait! I just adore Kate’s fashions! I know she’ll find something magnificent to wear!

  42. looking forward to seeing this visiton tv. positive they will make a great job of it in there own down to earth way. a breath of fresh air in the british monarchy although i like the queen. cant help how she was brought up. safe journey.
