Welcome to the Duchess Diary, a site launched out of a love of royal watching.
Back in November 2010, I tuned in as Clarence House announced the engagement of His Royal Highness, Prince William of Wales to Catherine Elizabeth Middleton. Both were beaming, but it was apparent that Middleton was absolutely, positively over the moon.
I had the good fortune to work for a wonderful boss who allowed me to build my career as a royal reporter. Since Will and Kate’s engagement, I’ve covered every royal happening, from the major to the minor and everything in between.
I invite you to visit this page for inspiration, a good history lesson, and perhaps a laugh or two. There are many opinions about the idea of a monarchy, but yours truly holds strong to the idea that it’s a pillar of tradition and mystery that offers a nice moment of escapism.
