Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, were in London yesterday at the MENCAP Community Center for an Olympics torch ceremony with torch bearer Jay Kamiraz. Today, they kept the public appearances coming at the Sandringham Flower Show. Tomorrow will be a big day for royals and all of Britain with the opening of the 2012 Summer Olympics. This morning, Prince Charles's sons, William and Harry, attended the launch of Coach Core with Kate Middleton. During the upcoming days, the royals will have jam-packed schedules stepping out to watch their countrymen compete in various Olympic events.
Prince William was able to bring his dad to work today! It was day one of Prince Charles's annual tour of Wales, and his first stop was at the Royal Air Force's Valley Base on the island of Anglesey. Prince Charles was treated to a grand overview. He was able to check out the Sea King rescue helicopter Prince William uses, as well as William's storage locker and military gear. Also along for the fun was Prince Charles's wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall. Prince William's own spouse, Kate, spent the weekend in London. Kate Middleton wore Joseph to Wimbledon, where she was in the royal box alongside her sister, Pippa Middleton, to cheer on the UK's own Andy Murray in the men's finals. Andy lost to Roger Federer, but both Kate and Pippa did their best to root for their countryman. Prince William took in tennis last Wednesday, but skipped out on the latest match. Both Prince William and Prince Harry went surfing in Cornwall over the weekend, and were photographed looking hot in their wetsuits.
Yesterday, the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations came to an end with a Thanksgiving Service at St Paul's Cathedral followed by a reception at the Guildhall then a carriage ride to Buckingham Palace. Kate Middleton rounded out proceedings in her third Alexander McQueen creation in as many days, wearing a custom-made nude lace dress on Tuesday. The Duchess of Cambridge accessorised with a Jane Taylor cocktail hat, Prada clutch and her favourite nude LK Bennett Sledge heels. Princess Beatrice wore a cornflower blue Kinder Aggugini dress while her sister Princess Eugenie donned a purple Suzannah number, and both chose Stephen Jones headgear and Kurt Geiger Gina shoes. Camilla Duchess of Cornwall went with a Bruce Oldfield dress and Philip Treacy hat, while Zara Phillips chose a Herve Leger peplum number and Sophie Countess of Wessex wore Jane Taylor on her head and Jimmy Choos on her feet. Take a look at all the outfits here, and tell me who was most fab!
The Queen celebrated her Diamond Jubilee this weekend with a trip to the races then an historic ride down the Thames. Kate Middleton stole the show at Sunday's River Pageant in a red Alexander McQueen dress and Sylvia Fletcher hat from James Lock & Co. Her beau Prince William was smart in his uniform complete with blue sash, and the guest of honour herself Queen Elizabeth completed the Union Jack trio of shades in her ivory Angela Kelly coat and dress. Pippa Middleton was on another boat with the rest of the Duchess of Cambridge's family in a navy outfit by Orla Kiely. On Saturday, the Queen and members of the Royal family including Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie attended the Epsom Derby where Katherine Jenkins performed. Take a look through to see who wore what, and tell me who was best dressed!
Kate Middleton looked ready for Spring in gorgeous bright blue as she stepped out alongside the Queen and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, for tea at Fortnum & Mason food store in London today. Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, wore a jacket by Missoni, pumps by Rupert Sanderson, and accessorized with two yellow daffodils on her lapel in honor of St David's Day. The trio of royal women were presented with special picnic baskets in honor of the Jubilee. Inside the upscale department store, Kate reportedly indulged in chocolate, confessing to the staff that like most girls she has a sweet tooth.
The gift baskets Catherine, Camilla, and the Queen received reportedly included dog biscuits, which may have been specially included with Kate and William's new puppy Lupo in mind. Catherine has been coming into her own with solo appearances while her husband Prince William is on duty in the Falklands. The Jubilee events and her charity work have kept her busy, but she has her own special occasion around the corner as well — Kate and William's first wedding anniversary is just two months away already.
The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, shared a carriage with Prince Harry, her mother-in-law Camilla Parker-Bowles, and Prince Wiliam's uncle Prince Andrew this morning at the Trooping the Colour procession in London. The annual ceremony is held to recognize the birthday of the sovereign, though Queen Elizabeth actually turned 85 on April 21. The royals tend to celebrate the Queen's big day in the Summer, however, as the weather is better for outdoor events. Her husband, Prince Philip, actually just celebrated a milestone — Philip's 90th birthday was yesterday! He received a new title for the occasion. Prince Philip, known as the Duke of Edinburgh, is now also the Lord High Admiral of the navy, and is planning to begin scaling back his official workload. This was William's first time riding in the parade, and he was able to wear the distinctive bearskin hat while riding next to his father Charles. William wore the Irish Guards uniform, which he donned during his April 29 wedding to Kate, for the first time since their nuptials. The pomp wrapped up with William's family reuniting on the balcony of Buckingham Palace as well. William and his wife have had a busy week of social obligations, after Kate dazzled in Jenny Packham at Thursday's ARK dinner.
Kate Middleton, in Reiss, assumed her first royal duty this morning by joining her husband, Prince William, to welcome President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama to the UK. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are home again following a 10-day honeymoon in the Seychelles, and they left with a special gift from the ruler of the remote island nation. The president and first lady, making the third official visit from a sitting head of state to Britain in 100 years, were first greeted by Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip, who is to celebrate his 90th birthday on June 10. William and Kate apparently discussed their upcoming California tour with the Obamas, then sat down to a lunch hosted by the queen. The president and first lady had to rearrange their travel plans and move their trip forward due to worries about how ash from the latest Iceland volcano will affect flying conditions. The Obamas are staying at Buckingham Palace for two nights, and this evening will dine at a royal banquet that William and Kate are not expected to attend.
Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla Parker Bowles, made their way from Clarence House to Westminster Abbey this morning. They waved to fans as they traveled down the mall by car. Charles and Camilla followed the arrival of Carole and Michael Middleton, who came to the big event from The Goring Hotel. The father of the groom looked regal in his Royal Navy uniform while Camilla chose an outfit by Anna Valentine.

Prince Harry attended the traditional Christmas service at Sandringham this weekend, spending time with his grandparents The Queen and Prince Philip. Prince Charles attended with Camilla Parker-Bowles, who wore a warm furry hat similar to that of her mother-in-law. Harry was able to catch up with Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, who he partied with in London a few days before Christmas. Sadly, there was no sign of newly-engaged Prince William and Kate Middleton — William volunteered to be on call at RAF Valley in Anglesey, while Kate spent her final Christmas at her family home in Berkshire before she joins in with the traditional Royal Christmas plans.
