We are back with a very brief post today. Our focus is what Kate wore to her December meeting with 1851 Trust patrons and trustees at the Goring Hotel. There has been a bit of a buzz about the pictures, seen by most of us for the first time yesterday; we are excited that we were able to license three of the photos from that evening.

We are back with updates to Kate’s Calendar as well as several retail notes.

  • Thursday, February 12: In her role as Patron of the 1851 Trust the Duchess visits the town of Portsmouth. She will visit the Trust’s new headquarters located at Ben Ainslie Racing, meet students who created a giant mural at the headquarters and add her own touch to the artwork.

More about the Emma Bridgewater pottery unveiled at last November’s EACH luncheon, the reason Kate is visiting the Bridgewater factory. Below you see the Duchess with Ms. Bridgewater at that November event.

We are back with a few quick updates and our poll results.

We begin with word of a new engagement for Kate on the 12th of February, when she visits the town of Portsmouth.  The Duchess will be acting in her role as Patron of the 1851 Trust, an organization working with young people (under the age of 25)  to engage them through the marine and sailing industries. The group is supported by Sir Ben Ainslie, who is heading up a British team racing in the 2017 America’s Cup.  Many will recall Kate’s visit to the Maritime Museum last June when Sir Ben officially announced plans for a major effort to win the Cup.
