Yesterday, the Duchess of Cambridge was snapped with Prince George and Princess Charlotte at the Houghton Hall Horse Trials (image courtesy of Ellie Oliver on Twitter) . It’s a good sign that the Cambridges are spending time at Anmer Hall in Norfolk at the moment since George’s school is currently on break.
Kate’s dress has been ID’d as Zara, while her bag is by Little Makes Big, a brand her sister, Pippa, has been spotted carrying in the past.
You’ll note that Charlotte is enjoying a color-coordinate ice cream cone, while George is dressed more casually than we usually see him.
Kate has attended the Houghton Horse Trials previously (most recently in 2016, I believe), though these casual sightings of her with the kids at polo matches or other outdoor events have grown increasingly infrequent over the years.
Houghton Hall is owned by the Marquess and Marchioness of Cholmondeley, who are Norfolk neighbors and friends of the Cambridges. Back in June 2016, William and Kate attended a charity gala in honor of the East Anglia Children’s Hospices and it was recently announced that the Marchioness came on-board as another patron.
The Marchioness was born Rose Hanbury and is a former fashion model. The couple married in 2009 and have twin sons and a daughter.
And for those of you have missed the latest drama – designer Emilia Wickstead, who has designed several ensembles for Kate over the years – apparently told a reporter that she thought the Duchess of Sussex’s wedding gown was a rip-off of one of her designs, that the gown itself was too loose and the bride’s hair too messy. She’s been slammed on social media and finally released this message:
I’m going to go out on a limb and say it’s unlikely Meghan will be commissioning anything from her, and we’ll have to see how Kate and the rest of the Windsor women respond.
