Hello-Hello, we are back with a couple of updates and then we have a look at the beautiful Madderson London A/W ’18 collection.
The first item covers the new photos of Prince Charles, taken to commemorate his 70th birthday tomorrow.
The pictures have been embargoed; as soon as the embargo is lifted, we’ll publish the photos, adding them to the top of this post.
Pictures of the Prince, the Duchess of Cornwall, the Cambridge family and the Sussexes were released Tuesday evening and they look great.
Above you see the more formal shot, with little Prince Louis looking very jolly and Prince George looking a bit like a scamp on his best behavior. Charlotte is darling, smiling right at the camera.
Here is the relaxed, casual picture. Something must be happening that has everyone’s attention, you see them focused to a point that would be to the photographer’s left.
Chris Jackson of Getty Images took the photos. He said “I was delighted to have been asked to take these official portraits of The Prince of Wales surrounded by his family to celebrate the important milestone of his 70th Birthday. It was particularly special to capture such an informal and relaxed family portrait over a fun afternoon!”
He has done other Cambridge family photos, including the family Christmas card last year and Prince George’s first day of school. Some readers may recall he is married to Natasha Archer, considered by many to be Kate’s stylist.
As covered in this post, Kate’s dress is an Alessandra Richards piece. Made in a silk crêpe de chine, it features a pleated skirt, contrasting spread collar, and contrasting cuffs. It was carried at Net-a-Porter ($1413) and also at Moda Operandi ($2400).
Kate is wearing her go-to diamond and sapphire earrings in the photos, made from a pair of Diana’s earrings.
We can’t see what shoes the Duchess was wearing because of the way the photo is staged. We have details of what the children are wearing over at sister site What Kate’s Kids Wore, and the same for what the Duchess of Sussex wearing over at What Meghan Wore.
Our update begins with the buttons on the Catherine Walker coat worn by the Duchess Sunday night.
