Royal Perfection

My love affair with the Royal Family began when I was a little girl. I can remember wanting to be just like Princess Diana when I grew up. She was beautiful, stylish and warm hearted; a true icon. These days little girls have a new Princess to look up to. Kate Middleton may not have made it to Vancouver while she was in Canada with her 40+ outfits in tow recently; however, I’ve certainly been fawning over everything she has been wearing. Kate is absolutely stunning and fits the bill for a princess to perfection.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge began their North American Tour on Thursday, June 30th. The Duchess has demonstrated her exquisite style at each stop. William and Kate are elegant, down to earth and very obviously head over heels in love. They are truly a breath of fresh air.

Here’s a look at some of my favourite outfits and photos of the couple over their recent days in North America.

A Royal Love

Since the announcement of Prince William’s engagement to the lovely Kate Middleton, I’ve been completely obsessing over the Royal Wedding.  I have to be honest, I love anything Royal as it is.  When I was a little girl, I spent countless hours playing “Princess Diana” with my Grandma. We would re-enact her wedding to Charles, and I would walk around waving to the imaginary crowd and collecting flowers as though I was in a parade. It’s very possible that I’ve read every book every written about Diana. I’m sure it was my Granny’s love for the Royals that initially ignited my own interest in the family.

I love that William gave his bride-to-be his mother’s sapphire engagement ring. Confession: I own a replica of said ring, which I purchased as a teenager and still often wear.

I will very likely spend from now until next April buying mugs, mini spoons, tea towels, books, magazines, postcards and thimbles adorned with Wills and Kate’s faces as I anxiously await their big day.

Seriously, how cute are these two?
