It must be the most amazing experience, from upper middle class normality to full-on royalty. Unlike Mary (way too serious) and Charlene (too bloody miserable), Kate looks like she's having a blast.
I admire her for being herself and embracing everything that's thrown at her with such confidence and gusto. She looks fit and fabulous and genuinely in love.
I must admit I have always been a fan of the royals. How can you not love the history of the Bristish monarchy? I was lucky enough to meet Prince Charles, at a reception at Highgrove, some years ago, and was totally unprepared for how normal he was. He had rough working man's hands and was chatty and, well, really nice.
So this post is for Kate. Long may you reign!
I'd smile too if I could look good in these unforgiving trousers!
