With Prince George in tow, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will spend the first half of their Royal tour in New Zealand, according to the latest itinerary reports.
Wine tasting, city strolls, and yacht races, oh my!
It’s being reported that they only have two days off during the first half of the 10-day tour. How they will manage, I’m not sure. But then again, wineries, exploring, and yacht races are activities us peasants would only dream of doing on our vacations.
A Royal makeover?
Only a few weeks ago, “insider” sources revealed the Queen’s displeasure with Kate’s fashion. Hemlines too short and hair too long were among the things the Queen could reportedly do without. Oh, and more gems. The Queen would like to see Kate wearing more tiaras and jewels. (More jewels? The audacity!) These reports gained more clout when we saw Kate at the National Portrait Gallery wearing a necklace the Queen had received as a wedding gift from the King Nizam of Hyderabad.
Marilyn Monroe or Duchess?
While I think Kate’s fashion is, for the most part, pretty much perfection, I do agree something has to be done about those hemlines. The Queen has had weights inserted for years to avoid those “Marilyn Monroe” wardrobe malfunctions, but Kate has yet to do the same, and it is getting to be a bit much.
As for her hair, perhaps the Queen merely wants to prevent another Remembrance Day hair-twirling fiasco from happening. Can you blame her? Oh Kate, keep your head (hair included) in the game!
But I hardly think Kate will be parting with her locks anytime soon. After all, it’s an iconic do leaving millions around the world with major hair envy… While she may make a change to it, I don’t suspect it will be anything drastic. Maybe a few inches off and a bit of a bang (or, erm, fringe…).
One thing’s for sure…
This tour will answer all of these burning questions and has the power to make or break their (already tarnished) public image.
Put another shrimp on the barbie, I’m ready to see what is in store for this Royal tour!
