Seeing double! Kate Middleton channels Princess Diana at Royal Ascot in outfit nearly identical to one worn by late princess three decades earlier - and even dons her late mother-in-law's diamond and pearl earrings

    Duchess of Cambridge arrived at Royal Ascot with Prince William this afternoon
    She wore polka dot dress very similar to one worn by Princess Diana in 1988
    Kate Middleton also donned her late mother-in-law's drop pearl earrings today

Kate looks absolutely beautiful.  But seriously .... the shoes??  They just don't go with what she's wearing.

I read the other day that QE only allowed these two a 15min meeting....I should have posted it when I saw it cause I can't find it now..

I read the same thing.  I found it rather surprising, but I'm sure the Queen had her reasons.  I also read that no pictures were allowed of Lili and the Queen.

Harry and Meghan would have just sold the pics to whatever publisher offered the highest price.

My mother had a similar dress in the late 1950's ... mid-calf with a straight skirt. It was beautiful.

I think she's tying the brown shoes to the brown polka dots and brown hat .... although I might have gone with a deeper shade of brown for the shoes.   happy77   @libertybele

How in the world is she walking in those spiky heals without them poking into the ground, lol? Proof that she is meant to be the Queen one day, I guess.

Ok -- I thought that the outfit had black polka dots until I saw the 2nd photo; and the light shining reveals brown.  I'm good now with the shoes!   happy77 :beer:

Kate Middleton and Prince William's First Official Joint Portrait Unveiled!

Quote


Kate Middleton and Prince William viewed a special piece of artwork on Thursday — their first official joint portrait.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were on hand for the painted portrait's unveiling during a visit to their namesake region of Cambridgeshire, which is a county in the City of Cambridge. The couple received the titles of Duke and Duchess of Cambridge from Queen Elizabeth on their wedding day in April 2011.

William and Kate, both 40, stopped by the University of Cambridge's Fitzwilliam Museum in the heart of Cambridge, where they viewed the painted artwork as it was revealed to the public for the first time. The piece was commissioned in 2021 by the Cambridgeshire Royal Portrait Fund, which is held by the Cambridge Community Foundation, as a gift to Cambridgeshire. It was painted by award-winning British portrait artist Jamie Coreth.

The color is stunning, the dress is beautiful, the shoes are perfect, love the bracelet ... and he really captured her expression.  Who's the guy with her?   wink777

With all my media training, etc.  Am surprised they allowed Will to keep his hands in his pockets.  That's generally a no-no.

And uhhhh not that I typically stare at that area.  That portrait sure makes her look "bra-less"

I'm not a fan of her dress.  It's not "timeless" as are clothes she usually wears.

@Gefn

...hmm...I don't think that her expression was captured well or maybe he didn't quite capture the shape of her face --  :shrug:  Dress is beautiful though, but Williams' tie doesn't match her dress. 

All in all, not a fan.

Is this controversy with Charles enough for the Queen to abdicate Charles' position to William?  I'm thinking so.  I know Charles has waited a very long time to become King, but this 'cash transaction' should be carefully scrutinized by the Queen. It certainly has raised some eyebrows.

Queen Elizabeth Makes Public Appearance As Prince Charles Controversy Looms

Queen Elizabeth II made an appearance in Scotland on Monday to kick off Holyrood Week 2022, marking her first public outing since her Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

The queen took part in an ancient ceremony at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh, where she was accompanied by her son Prince Edward and his wife, Sophie, the Countess of Wessex.

The 96-year-old sovereign, who has continued to experience mobility problems, used a walking aid at the appearance.

Later on in the week, the queen will be joined by her son Prince Charles for engagements in Scotland.

The Prince of Wales, who recently represented the queen at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Rwanda, made headlines over the weekend after a Sunday Times investigation revealed that the heir to the throne accepted bags of cash from a Qatari politician years ago, and used the funds for his personal charities.............

............The report said that the prince accepted around $3.2 million in cash from Qatari Prime Minister Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber Al Thani, who reportedly handed over money in a department store shopping bag and a suitcase in meetings that occurred between 2011 and 2015.

Prince Charles’ Clarence House denied any wrongdoing in a statement.

“Charitable donations received from Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim were passed immediately to one of the Prince’s charities who carried out the appropriate governance and have assured us that all the correct processes were followed,” they told CNN in a statement..................

 Queen Elizabeth is ‘fading away before our very eyes’: royal expert
By Andrew Court   
June 24, 2022 4:50pm

A royal expert is sounding an alarm, saying new photographs of Queen Elizabeth II show the beloved monarch “fading away before our very eyes.”

Daniela Elser penned an op-ed for Australian outlet News.com.AU on Friday, saying images of the queen greeting New South Wales Governor Margaret Beazley in the UK last week were “nothing short of alarming.”

The snaps show the 96-year-old royal wearing a bright yellow dress as she smiles and shakes hands with the Australian politician inside Windsor Castle.

Elser claims the images are unremarkable until they are compared with photographs taken of the queen in a similar outfit back in June 2021, when she met former Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison.

“The difference is truly startling,” the royal expert writes. “In the intervening 12 months, Her Majesty would appear to have become markedly more stooped, much thinner and overall appears to have shrunk.”

The Post has reached out for comment from the Queen’s communications secretary.


The monarch is pictured greeting New South Wales Premier Margaret Beazley at Windsor Castle last week.


The queen is seen greeting Scott Morrison, the then-Prime Minister of Australia, in the UK in June 2021
