After recently celebrating their fist anniversary the Duke and Duchess were guests at an exclusive club at Claridge’s Hotel in London, the name of the club is “The Thirty Club” and is an elite club set up more than a century ago and its members come from the advertising and media.
The Duchess wore a full length cream dress which was split up the front and it is believed to have been created especially for her by French designer Roland Mouret, because of the way the dress is split she has to be particularly careful when exiting or entering her car.
However the Duchess looked as elegant and stunning as ever.
Prior to becoming known and making news all over the world as The Duchess of Cambridge, after marrying the grandson of the Queen who created him Duke of Cambridge on the morning of his marriage to Kate.
She was born simply Catherine Elizabeth Middleton on 9th January 1982 in The Royal Berkshire Hospital Reading and was Christened on 20th June 1982 and is the eldest of 3 children to Carole and Michael Middleton. Kate’s parents are not of Aristocratic stock and she is a welcome commoner addition to the Royal Family, her parents, onetime flight assistants are now directors of Party Pieces, which is a very successful company, more so now with the Royal connections, they are said to be worth in excess of £ 30 million.
When Kate was very young she went to an English Language nursery school in Jordan as that was where her parents were working from as flight attendants, on their return to the United Kingdom, she then progressed through the school system, including some time at an independent boarding school with absolutely no inkling, that she would become the Duchess of Cambridge as wife of the heir to the throne. Finally graduating from the University of St. Andrews in Fife Scotland where she gained a 2.1 hons. In the history of art.
It was while she was studying at St. Andrews that she met Prince William, Kate and William were unofficially going out as a couple from sometime in 2004, although this led to a lot of pressure on Kate from the newspapers and the paparazzi, in April 2007 Kate and William split up, amid rumours that William felt that he was too young to get married and that Kate was also upset that he did not pay her enough attention. Fortunately the future Duke and Duchess of Cambridge got back together a few months later and in October 2010 in Kenya, they got engaged, it was officially announced by Clarence house on 16th November 2010, this precipitated a global frenzy and every move that William and Kate made instantly became headline news .Kate was already a fashion icon and since the Royal Wedding, virtually anything that she wears becomes a sell out in the shops.
The couple married at Westminster Abbey on 29th April 2011 a public holiday was declared in the United Kingdom and watched by an estimated 26 million in the U.K. and a global audience of about 300 million. They are now officially titled Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and wherever they go they make headline news
