It’s very, very hard for the Duchess of Cambridge to take a bad photo. I’d even venture to say it’s damn near impossible. And while some of you have volunteered to prove me wrong, I’m going to go ahead and oogle over some of Catherine’s most breathtaking shots, thanks to the help of flash bulbs, the right angle and that natural poise we’ve come to envy.
Ah, ye old pregnancy glow. Catherine chose a very retro, very adorable sleeveless Emilia Wickstead shift to celebrate the work of The Art Room charity at The National Portrait Gallery in London on April 24, 2013.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge viewed WWI Wall of Remembrance during their tour of Australia.
I recall clapping feverishly as Catherine gave the Queen a deep curtsy before walking up the aisle as Her Royal Highness Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. Roy-uhl-ty!!!
The newly married couple then passed the Grave of the Unknown Warrior, upon which Catherine’s bouquet would later be placed. This is a tradition for royal brides, started by Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother when she married the Duke of York (later King George VI) in April 1923.
While Prince William trained in the Falklands in March 2012, Her Majesty and Prince Philip invited Catherine to Leicester for an engagement. It went swimmingly and Catherine, in LK Bennett with KiKi McDonough earrings and a Sylvia Fletcher for Lock & Co hat, told well-wishers that she was being “well looked after” while her husband was away.
Catherine made her first appearance since announcing her second pregnancy at the welcome ceremony for Singapore President Tony Tan on October 21st, 2014.
We salute her for stomaching the wobbly ride in the State Carriage. “For Queen and Country” she must have repeated to herself while clutching her emergency stash of lavender biscuits.
The rays of poise are literally emanating from my laptop screen. I feel more like a lady having looked at these photos.
Catherine joined William and Prince Harry in Belgium to mark the 100th anniversary of Great Britain declaring war on Germany.
For Christmas, I’d like some poise. And a McQueen coat. Thnx.
