Inside Kate Middleton’s Clever Wardrobe Trick to Never Upstage the Bride as a Wedding Guest

All eyes are usually on Kate Middleton — but the royal knows exactly how to let a friend have her time in the spotlight.

On Saturday afternoon, members of the royal family stepped out for the wedding of one of Kate’s closest friends, Sophie Carter, who married Robert Snuggs at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Norfolk.

The royal mom of three wore a cornflower blue Catherine Walker & Co coat dress for the special occasion — a recycled outfit! Princess Kate previously wore the piece when she arrived in Berlin with Prince William and their two eldest children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, during their July 2017 tour of Poland and Germany.

Just as she perfectly matched her family in blue for their tour, Kate coordinated with her children for the weekend wedding. Charlotte, 3, was one of three bridesmaids, while George, 5, was among the chosen four page boys, and they were outfitted by one of Kate’s favorite childrenswear designers, Amaia. Charlotte wore a linen dress in ivory with royal blue embroidered edging from the upmarket label. Meanwhile, George wore matching cropped blue trousers, with an off-white linen shirt accessorized with a blue cummerbund, also from Amaia.

Kate made her outfit wedding chic by adding a matching floral headpiece by milliner Juliette Botterill, who is becoming a go-to for royal family members like Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie and Zara Tindall.

At the May wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, she pulled an epic royal rewear with one of her favorite pieces: an off-white bespoke Alexander McQueen coat dress. In July 2015, Kate wore the structured-collared coat dress to Princess Charlotte’s christening. She pulled out the ensemble again at the Queen’s official birthday celebrations, Trooping the Colour, in 2016.

Meet the Superfans Who Camp Outside Kate Middleton’s Hospital Before Every Royal Baby Birth

Terry Hutt knows when he would like Kate Middleton to welcome her third child –April 30, which will be his 84th birthday.

For the third royal baby birth in a row, the ultimate royal superfan is in position opposite the now-famous doors of the private Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital in London — just as he did for the births of Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

Hutt and a group of his fellow dedicated fellow enthusiasts have been camped along a wall of the hospital since late Monday, April 9, when signs were erected to ban street parking.   

Left to right: Terry Hutt, Maria Scott and John Loughrey outside St. Mary’s Hospital in London on April 13, 2018.

During the day, Hutt says he wears his signature Union Jack suit because “people like seeing it,” but it is “well wrapped up at night.”

Alongside him are John Loughrey, 63, from London, and Maria Scott, 46, and her daughter Amy Thompson, 17, from Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Scott hopes for a St. George’s Day birthday (April 23) or one coinciding with Queen Elizabeth’s birthdate on April 21. 

Loughrey says he prefers the name Philip Michael (for Prince Philip and Kate’s father Michael Middleton) or Georgina, as a nod to a Spencer ancestor on Harry’s maternal side — or Elizabeth (for the Queen). There’s one thing the trio are agreed upon, though: “The most important thing is a healthy baby and a healthy mother.”

Terry Hutt and Margaret Tyler on Terry’s 80th birthday in 2015 awaiting the birth of Princess Charlotte.

The gang and their friends will be there “rain or shine” to the end, they vow. “Once you’re in it, there’s no going back,” says Scott. “I would kick myself if I go back home and she has it the next day.”

Last time, when they were waiting for aorund two weeks for Charlotte to be born (she arrived on May 2, 2015), Prince William and Kate’s office sent some coffee and pastries to the campers one morning.

“I’m hoping for birthday cake this year,” jokes Hutt.

Royal Trouble! Prince George Sobs After Getting Scolded by Kate at Pippa Middleton’s Wedding

There are usually a few tears at a wedding, and Pippa Middleton’s nuptials to financier James Matthews on Saturday were no exception.

Prince George, who served as a page boy for his aunt’s big day, appeared to cry after the ceremony at St. Mark’s Church in Englefield. According to reports, the 3-year-old royal was seen sobbing outside for a brief moment.

Determined to ensure nothing dampened the mood of her sister’s wedding day, Princess Kate was pictured giving her son a scolding. Photos showed Prince George pouting, seemingly embarrassed by the situation, but he perked up again soon after.

A video of the bride and groom leaving the church appears to show Kate having a strong word with George after he wanders behind Pippa and can be seen playing with her dress as she makes her big exit.

All eyes were on Prince George and 2-year-old Princess Charlotte, who served as a bridesmaid at the royal affair.

Proud parents Prince William and Kate watched as their royal toddlers, who were dressed in adorable outfits by Pepa and Co., prepared to make their way down the aisle.

After the ceremony, wedding guests told reporters that the children in the bridal party were “very” well-behaved during the ceremony. Unfortunately for George, it looks like he got into a bit of mischief afterwards!

Charlotte wore an ivory silk dress with a frilled collar, a nude pink sash and matching trim across the sleeves and neckline with hand-embroidered detailing. The bodice featured a vintage style lace panel and the dress carried a net petticoat with lace trim underneath. She also wore ivory opaque tights, beige soft leather shoes and a floral headband.

George wore an ivory double-breasted silk pleated shirt with Peter Pan collar and coordinating trim detail paired with knickerbockers in pale olive Vienne silk and a matching cummerbund.

George adorably channeled dad William, who was a page boy in his uncle Prince Andrew’s wedding to Sarah Ferguson in 1986.

No doubt mom Kate passed along a few helpful tips to her 2-year-old daughter before the big day. She and Pippa made an adorable pair of bridesmaids as little girls in their uncle wedding ceremony in 1991.

Pippa, 33, and Matthews, 41, became engaged in July 2016. The longtime couple has a “deep desire” to disappear from the spotlight in the longer term, a source told PEOPLE.

Another source said they are looking forward to settling down and “having children and leading a quiet life.”

Prince George And Princess Charlotte Steal The Show At Pippa Middleton’s Wedding

In a twist that should shock no one, all eyes were on Prince George and Princess Charlotte at their aunt Pippa Middleton’s wedding Saturday.

Prince William’s sister-in-law looked absolutely stunning in a a high neck, lace Giles Deacon gown with a long train and bespoke veil, but his tiny children gave her a run for her money doing their duties as page boy and bridesmaid.

Charlotte looked adorable in a white short-sleeved dress with a big pink bow and floral head piece. George, who is getting bigger every day, looked oh-so-dapper in a white collared shirt and short trousers.

The former Kate Middleton, who looked beautiful in a long-sleeved, pale pink dress with a matching fascinator, reportedly expressed some concern on Tuesday over how her little ones would behave during the nuptials. From the looks of it, though, all they did was manage to look even cuter than usual.

Perhaps they’ll be reprising these roles for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding next? We can only dream.

All The Details of Kate Middleton’s Look For Princess Charlotte’s Christening

Kate Middleton just made another fashion choice sure to be included in her personal best-dressed hall of fame, picking a tailored white Alexander McQueen dress for the christening of Princess Charlotte. In typical Kate style, the dress is a classic cut that would look perfectly at-home in any decade.

The proud mum kept things monochromatic with a Jane Taylor hat and pale nude pumps, finishing off the look with diamond earrings and a matching pendant from Mappin & Webb. If Princess Charlotte’s lacy gown looks familiar, it’s because you’ve seen it before: Prince George wore the same garment on his big day in October 2013.

For the same event with George, Kate picked another light cream-colored Alexander McQueen dress and Jane Taylor hat that complemented the babe’s gown much like today’s does.

Come see all the details about the royal family’s big day.

My “Guide to Pippa Middleton’s Guide to Croquet”

Pippa, you have a sail on your head. Or a fin. Something.

If you haven’t been made aware, Pippa Middleton, lover of hats, and the sister made famous for being a sister, occasionally writes an opinion-slash-advice column for Vanity Fair. Yes that Vanity Fair.

Her stories, which are all a bungling collection of fancy words, lack any creative intelligence. For that reason alone they are all must-reads and quite frankly should be required reading for any pursuer of any language degree.

Each story has the unique combination of a “what don’t you get about what I’m saying” tone, coupled with an airy pretentiousness one might expect from the sister of a future Queen. The only negative, really, is that she’s only written a handful of stories– which is truly a shame.

Last year, for instance, she dedicated 340 words to Royal Ascot Week, so you can imagine my euphoria when a notification popped up in my email that she had published a guide on croquet. I immediately thought, “OH CROQUETTS! YUM! But then realized it wasn’t to be.

Turns out that a guide on croquet was even better because it made me think: How have we gotten through life without the definitive guide on crochet– sorry, croquet.

For no other reason but that it’s comedy gold, I’ll be reviewing Pippa’s “Guide to Croquet.” Right here. Right now. Just for you.

◊◊◊

The sounds of ice tinkling in Pimm’s, lawn mowers buzzing, and the clunk of a mallet on a ball–such are my memories of summer days in the English countryside with childhood friends…

Ah yes… remember those days, folks? A spot of tea. A biscuit. Young Remy doffing his cap. THOSE WERE THE DAYS!

Did you heathens and masochists know that croquet “is an English game through and through?” ‘Cause it is (angry face). “It’s also very popular at BOTH Oxford and Cambridge!” I know because Pippa just told me. So whenever you lads are walking around the quads at Cambridge, don’t act surprised when a mean game of croquet breaks out.

◊◊◊

The way the game of croquet is setup (apparently it’s referred to as “chess on grass”) makes it a perfectly deft game at creating countless opportunities to “scamper” about. It’s also a wonderful way to “mingle with the opposite sex.”

“You there… come. Let us knock around for a few, say?”

◊◊◊

Pippa then lays out the rules of croquet– literally. She basically and probably just went to Wikipedia or something. That really doesn’t require any work, but whatever. I won’t judge. Except that I kind of am. Oh well.

Did you know there are copious famous fans of cricket croquet? Winston Churchill, and Clooney, just to name a few.

In 2007, photographer Martin Schoeller captured George Clooney and Brad Pitt engaging in a leisurely game of croquet at the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc, in Antibes, France.

2015-05-21-1432236235-7880478-NUZdS.jpg

Honestly, if you told me that was Clooney and Brad playing cricket and not croquet, I’d have said, “Okay. Ya.” So call me uncivilized.

She also mentions Diddy as one of these “famous fans,” but calls him Sean “Puffy” Combs, which he hasn’t been called since 2001. So, I mean come on, Pippa.

◊◊◊

It’s a wonderful tale of sport and leisure on the English countryside. Really.

If all of this talk about croquet excites you and you’re just chomping at the bit to get started, just buy a mallet. You can buy one for $ 666.00— the Devil’s sign.

Is it a sign? Or just the way it should be…
