About/Media

Hello and thank you for visiting the 'Duchess Kate' blog,

I'm a 22 year old student. I began blogging about the Duchess of Cambridge after watching the Royal wedding on 29th April 2011. Kate has captured the interest of the media, fashion elite and millions of people all over the world. There is an undeniable interest in Kate's sartorial choices, her pieces sell out within hours. In these recessionary times the fashion industry needs trendsetters like Kate to boost sales and attract interest in brands. Kate's style is also easily emulated and often very affordable. Kate wears high street brands such as LK Bennett, Reiss and Topshop, often taking a relatively cheap item and 'dressing it up' for an event. Something we are all interested in.

Kate's journey from university student to Duchess of Cambridge has been a fascinating one. William and Kate's romance has captivated the nation and their wedding will be remembered for many years to come.

I hope to document Kate's progression as a member of the royal family, her charitable work and sartorial choices with the latest news and photos updated as quickly as possible.


  • Please feel free to contact me if you have any queries or requests at hrhcatherineblog@hotmail.com


Constructive comments are always welcome. Discussion on the post you are commenting on, what Kate is wearing, whether you liked it or not, upcoming events and the latest news are interesting topics. I encourage debate on the blog and respect each poster's opinion and I ask all of you to do the same.

Profanity/hateful/trolling comments will not be published on the blog. If you feel an inappropriate comment has been published do not hesitate to let me know.  

I look forward to following Duchess Kate with all of you! :)

  19. I just happened to come across this site tonight and I love it! I think Prince William has made an absolutely wonderful choice in marrying Duchess Kate. They really seem to be truly in love and what a beautiful woman. All the work she has done she is really behind the causes and I love her "down to earth" outlook. They make a really wonderful pair and I can't wait until they become King and Queen of England. I know they will do a fantastic job!!!

    P.S. Do you have any idea where I can buy nude shoes like Kate's LK Bennett's Sledge platforms? Have you found any cheaper replicas? I live in Australia. I've tried Style Tread and The Iconic but can't find anything quite right :(

  25. Like that Kate recycles her clothes. Very practical and smart. Hope she keeps it up. Loves her wearing stockings too. Pippa should not be photographed with her. Does not look good, like a social climber, desperate.
    Looking forward to seeing Kate have a baby/babies.
    More power to her recycled clothing and going for practical reasonable clothes .

  27. Hi just want to say that I really enjoy your blog and I noticed that this blog contains some of the less seen photos of Kate compare with other media. However, I remember that a while ago I saw numerous old pictures of Kate(the pictures of her way before her marriage) and I actually like that archive so so much because I appreciate her pre-marriage style much more than her Royal style. But now I can't see those pictures anymore. Why? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I love your blog! However I found the archive called "Duchess before Cambridge" is gone and I honestly miss them becasue I actually love Kate's pre-marriage style more then her Royal style. Is there ANY way that I can still access the archive before 2011 May? Thanks a lot!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Hello.

    I'm afraid not. I hate to delete the page as I have to pay to use most of the photos and it wouldn't have been possible to licence the hundreds of photos in that page.

    I will definitely add some posts on Kate 'pre wedding' to the blog shortly :)

  32. I think the black dress Kate wore 8/28 is "dress with pleat on sleeves" from Zara. In the United States, it retails for $79.90. ~Melanie

    ReplyDelete
  33. Kate's black dress could also be the "Brandy" dress from Reiss which retails for $340 in the United States. After taking a closer look, I'm inclined to believe it is this dress, but the dress from Zara is a great look-a-like for a cheaper price. ~Melanie

  38. I love "the Cambridges" casual look when they were in the jungle..they both looked happy,sexy and not caring about the horrible tabloid foder!!!Why in their legal complaint that was posted is Kates last name Middleton and not Windsor or Cambridge? Thanking you again for the beautiful coverage of their tour as here in Canada, we only saw soundbites!!! We didn't get much of the Wessex visit and they were practically on our doorstep.

  47. While I'm always eager to see a new gown, I sort of felt that the Duchess would recycle for the St. Andrews dinner. The black lace Temperly looked beautiful (as did Catherine). Her recycling of outfits, sometimes from years ago, does raise for me a couple of questions, which some of you may have knowledge or ideas about: How do you think she stores and "catalogs" all her clothes, since she seems to maintain ready access to them, and they all remain in mint condition? I know she does not have a Mistress of the Wardrobe! Also, do you think she has more than one identical pair of the shoes that she wears most frequently (for instance, the nude Bennetts)? They always look pristine, even though she wears them while walking across lawns and cobblestones and miles of concrete and asphalt--often in the rain.

    You have spent incredibly hours for your page, always lovely pics and background details....Thank you for your work!

    On other sites, they have since months endless discussions about the question if Catherine's pregnant or not.... I think, its not ours to know this first! She has - like every person - her private life. So its great to be here an know things whith respect!

    I hope, I can spend any days in London for next year too an wish you a lot of interesting, glittering and stylish hours while you're fill de stuff in your page for us!

    I just wanted to thank you once again for your delightful blog! I really appreciate all the effort you put in to making the blog informative, timely, and interesting. :o)

    I also want to commend you for your restraint regarding some of the more negative comments that people occasionally post. I don't understand the vitriol displayed towards Kate, and would no doubt be very sarcastic in my responses if I had this blog. Just another reason it's better for everyone that you're the writer! ;o)

  68. Charlotte, by posting here I hope to avoid the fate I had on a prior post. As I said in that post, I neither love nor hate Kate. There are things I really like about her, and things I'm starting to not like so much. After making a statement to that effect, I was accused of not understanding the meaning of words I used, and that I should go hang out at the Daily Mail. By a person who does not put a name to her words as well. I am bluhare, have always been bluhare, and will continue to be bluhare!

    So, my question is can a divergent opinion be handled here? I love Kate's fashion, she does a wonderful job in my opinion, and as I also said I think she's got great presence and poise. But if I'm going to be bashed every time I say something, then this isn't the place for me either.

    Appreciate your time, Charlotte. You do a good job!!

    1. Hello Bluhare,

      Let me start by saying, you are of course most welcome on this blog.

      The discussion on the post you mentioned got terribly out of hand. It happens each time the work debate is brought up and that is the only reason I decided it was best not to discuss it.

      Constructive opinions are always most welcome and if you ever again feel you have been attacked by another poster, please don't hesitate to let me know.

    2. Thanks, Charlotte. Appreciate your response. Yes, I thought that person was out of line, and at least one other person thought so as well, which was nice. :)

  73. I've been looking at your blog from time to time and have a couple of ideas for the baby name(s). Your Windsor family tree is interesting, but the Cambridges may go back even further for names. My suggestions follow. For a boy, George William Henry David. George is a royal name with a long lineage; William and Henry are also, but give a nod to the child's father and uncle as well; David is the patron saint of Wales where the Cambridge's have spent the last couple of years and the Welsh would be thrilled. For a girl, Eleanor Catherine Elizabeth Matilda. Eleanor of Aquitaine was queen/wife to Henry II and a very strong individual and the name hasn't been used in a long time, so it would be distinctive and not invite too many comparisons; Catherine and Elizabeth are royal names of long standing and give a nod to both the child's mother and great-grandmother; and Matilda was the name of the queen/wife of both William the Conqueror (William I) and King Stephen and, while seemingly old-fashioned, I think the British might very well like it just because it is historic. Just some thoughts!

  79. I found a good 'copykate' for the pink MaxMara studio coat Kate wore to the official visit to Cambridge. It's the 'Simply Divine Coat' from French Connection for £160 and it's the same colour, has similar slanted pockets, zip fastening and poppers but doesn't have the same high neck but is otherwise the same. I found it while trying to identify the pink coat she wore recently to a Swiss wedding and thought it was that one but then noticed it wasn't when I looked closer.

    I don't have my own blog because I dont have enough time to update regularly but Id really like to start one. I would appreciate it if you perhaps could include this info in your next post so other people could benefit from it. I really like your blog.

    It's never too late to discover a good blog, this one about Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge is wonderfully done and the exciting days about the Royal baby's birth were perfectly described so that I thought I was standing next to the Lindo Wing door. I've visited the whole subjects and important days on this perfect blog and I'll be regular visitor from now on.
    Keep up the good work!

  88. Hello! I'm from Canada. I LOVE your blog! I have a non related Catherine question...you mentioned that you are a student. I wondered what you are studying? And how did you get to be so knowledgeable with all the fashion Catherine wears? I have tried several times to identify (on my own) what she wore but I am never quick enough. Keep up the great work! I can only imagine the hard work and time you put into this blog in addition to being a student. That's a lot of work...but it seems like you totally enjoy it, which is nice.

    1. Hello Mandy,

      I'm doing an MBA! I'm blogging three years and at the start I was pretty clueless but I started to research Kate labels and labels she would wear. We regularly do fashion predictions posts and it's a great way to become familiar with collections. Also, for most official engagements the Palace announces the designer. If something is proving particularly difficult, the ladies over at What Kate Wore Facebook usually find it.

      It never feels like hard work I have to say, I really love it :)

      Charlotte! I accidentally stumbled onto this site...lurching along and learning as I go. It's very encouraging to read that you learned as you went along while you followed your passion....
      which you have stamped with your very own intelligence, integrity, and comittment. I hope to do the same with my project to help with bullying , abuse, & the appalling absence of integrity in the world - by teaching abusers how much they hurt themselves - what they lose - when they hurt others. I've never seen anything out there that really addresses these issues! Thank you for being such sn inspiration! I'm incredulous that you are doing all
      of this PLUS studying for your MBA! I'm fascinated by the give-and-take on the blog...even when things get heated...people's behavior is fascinating...but it has deepened my reluctance to get on facebook and twitter....suspicious in my old age!
      It is lovely meeting you -and sharing my passion for what the royal family represents - and for fashion!

    Hi Charlotte!

    I'd first like to say that I love and adore your blog. You have the perfect proportions between fashion, facts, pictures etc. These last days I've Read your whole blog from beginning to end. Wow, you're good! You're improved alot since the beginning. Was great to see.

    I have some ideas for posts and themes. I think you do a marvellous job so theme are just suggestions for if you have a writers block or it is a lack of kate-news. I didn't know where to post this and since I didn't want to mail I'll put it here.

    1. How William (and Kate) was dressed as kids and some speculations on how Kate will dress George and possible future kids.
    2. Kate's hair. Maybe sort her different styles into groups or do something cronological.
    3. Flashback posts. Choose a day, week or month and look in detail at what she was doing at the same time previous years. Look at how her life has changed.
    4. Kate and Will - PDA. Your favourite love-looks, kisses, hugs etc. throughout the years.
    5. Best videos of them. Or maybe a summary tab with videos of them.
    6. Favourite Kate quotes.
    7. Kate -Food. Look at what resturants they like (only the food since you already did a Kate love son restaurants.). I read that she gave cookies to the RAF, made BBQ with scouts and that both she and will mentioned to a writer that kate loves her cookbook(s). So a food and baking inspired post.
    8. Collections of all her speaches.
    9. Kate loves - most recycled clothes, shoes etc. The things she wears the most.
    10. Campare her style with royals. Not only Diana, but the queen, Camilla and some of the minor royals. Maybe some european royals like Mary, Victoria, Maxima etc.
    11. Posts summing up her work in her patronages (spelling?). One post for each containing short information about the charity and summaries and pictures from all her engagements and work surrounding each of them.

    Once again. I love your blog. So I really hope you dont take this as critique. It's just meant as inspiration.

    Hugs from Rebecca from Sweden!
