The Duchess of Cambridge attended the Nato reception at Buckingham Palace last night and we are obsessed with the green dress she wore to the event.

The mum-of-three always looks flawless, especially when it comes to important royal events like this one.

Kate dazzled in a £965 Emilia Wickstead dress at the reception. The green gown featured a high neckline and puff sleeves.

She wore her hair in bouncy waves and opted for winged eyeliner and pink lipstick- her go-to makeup look.

The Duchess was spotted chatting to guests, including the prime minister of Canada, Justin Truedeu.

Kate attended the event without her husband Prince William as he is currently on a four-day royal tour of Oman and Kuwait.

Last night’s event marked 70 years of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, which was established in 1949.

The reception, which was hosted by Queen Elizabeth, saw the Royal Family welcome numerous world leaders to the State Room of Buckingham Palace.

Kate is a huge fan of cooking and often gets her children- Prince George and Princess Charlotte- involved in the process.

The mum and her darling children love to make their own pizzas and the youngsters have even made their own cheesy pasta.

We are so excited about Kate and Mary’s Christmas special, which is due to air next month. They’ll certainly make the most charming duo!

A royal etiquette expert has explained some of the more confusing royal style rules to news.com.au, and we can't even process how strange this is.

With a rake of high profile events in the Buckingham Palace calendar, The Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Sussex have the chance to wear the finest jewels in the world. 

Apparently, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle are banned from wearing diamonds during the day, which we think sounds pretty unfair.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by  (@meghanmarkle_official) on

Both women possess some beautiful jewellery of their own, and from their late mother-in-law Diana, Princess of Wales.

The pair are frequently given permission to wear select pieces from the royal collection, as well as their own. Basically, they own a shed-load of bling.

However, it turns out that the Duchesses are fairly restricted in what jewels they can wear at specific times during the day. Etiquette teacher Myka Meier has given us the lowdown.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by @the_royalfamilies on

“Other jewels are worn pre-6pm,” Meier told news.com.au, which explains why the duo are normally only seen sporting stones like pearls and topaz, or minimalist precious metal pieces during the day as well as their engagement rings.

The Duchesses are meant to avoid looking "flashy" before the evening time, for some reason. 

“Before 6pm, you’ll see metallics, gemstones, pearls, sapphires," explains Meier.

"At night, you’ll see the diamonds come out, and that’s in order to not come across as flashy in your appearance.”

Considering their lifestyle is fairly different to our own, we don't think not wearing jewels while the sun is up will suggest that they're just like us.

James Middleton has confirmed his engagement to girlfriend Alizee Thevenet. The businessman proposed in the Lake District this week.

He took to Instagram to reveal the joyous news. James posted a photo of him and Alizee, who look as loved up as ever.

He captioned the snap, “She said OUI.”

News of the couple’s engagement was reported yesterday, but James waited until today to comment.

He added, “Our secret is out but we couldn’t be happier to share the news.”

The Duchess of Cambridge’s brother has been dating Alizee for over a year. They just moved in together in West London in September.

Alizee had no idea who James was when they first met. She was unaware of his connection to the royal family until a friend told her before their first date.

A source said, “It wasn’t until after they’d met for a drink that Alizee realised who he was — one of her friends had to tell her.”

Alizee’s father said his daughter is ‘deliriously happy’ with James.

Huge congratulations to the happy couple.

You can have your chance to stay in a property beside Prince William and Kate Middleton's country house in west Norfolk, and it's cheaper than a one-bedroom flat in London.

The Sandringham Estate listing have one catch; tenants must be cat-free and vetted, instead of a first-come first-served basis.

The house next door to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in West Norfolk is up for rent for just £700 per month, as Metro reports

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by  (@royaltyeurope_kids_fashion_) on

The Sandringham Estate rents out an array of properties in the area, including 20 Cherry Tree. The cottaged terrace has two bedrooms across from Amner Hall.

The property has a huge amount of green garden space and parking, but its famous neighbours will most likely be the main draw.

The website points out that they prefer to rent their properties to people who "live and work locally," though they'll consider "those moving to the area."

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by  (@rosy_____72) on

The letting adds, "Properties are not let on a first-come, first-served basis, but rather on which prospective tenant is best suited to the property."

They have a very strict no cat policy, but dogs will be "considered". The area has only 29 houses and a population of roughly 63 people. 

Amner Hall was a wedding gift to Prince William and Kate from The Queen, with about £1.5 million spent upgrading the mansion before they moved in.

Anmer has a small population but a wide variety of amenities including; a social club offering film nights, quiz evenings and barbeques, an active Bowls Club and a Women’s Institute and a 14th century church; St Mary the Virgin.

Most of the homes in the village were lived in by those employed at Amner Hall and the Royal estate.

If you're interested in applying for the property and having William and Kate nearby, you can do so via the Sandringham Estate website.

Kate Middleton chose a special tiara to wear to the banquet with the Dutch royals

King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands invited the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to The Netherlands State Banquet.

The event was held at the lavish ballroom in the Buckingham Palace and many well-known guests were in attendance, including Prime Minister Theresa May.

As usual, Kate looked stunning in her classic choice of an Alexander McQueen gown, pastel blue with a mermaid cut.

But it was her jewellery that was the talk of the evening.

She wore the Lover’s Knot tiara, a favourite of Princess Diana’s, atop a sophisticated swept up hairstyle with the late princess’ matching earrings as well.

The tiara is over a century old and was often the Princess of Wales go-to choice at royal events.

According to The Court Jeweller, the tiara was originally commissioned by Queen Mary, who had to give up one of her own tiara’s for its making.

Diana inherited the former queen’s love of the piece, who wore it during Queen Victoria’s coronation.

When Queen Mary died in 1953, she passed on the tiara to Queen Elizabeth II, who then passed it on to her daughter-in-law Princess Diana.

Clearly, the Lover’s Knot tiara holds much sentimental value for Kate and she was honoured to adorn it at the royal banquet.

It is sweet to see the Duchess of Cambridge carrying on her late mother-in-law's legacy and making this small tribute in her honour.

Kate Middleton is fiercely dominating the fashion industry, and we are loving it!

According to eBay's annual UK Retail Report, one fab woman has been named the top royal fashion influencer of the year – Kate Middleton.

The Duchess of Cambridge has even surpassed the Duchess of Sussex, who has been ranked as number two.

But are we really that surprised? The fashionista was the envy of pregnant mums everywhere with her classic colour choices and bold pattern combinations.

At her little Louis’ christening, she arrived in a gorgeous Alexander McQueen dress with stylish structured sleeves. Kate was also crowned with a matching Jane Taylor headpiece, adorned with intricately laced flowers.

Princess Kate has looked simply stunning in her sleek outfits during her three pregnancies, before and after she had her darling children.

Her royal style has been the #fashiongoals of late for mums all over the globe.

The Duchess’ number one status is linked to the burst in searches for maternity clothes by British consumers.

Tailored maternity coats became all the rage when Kate claimed them as part of her go-to outfit ensemble, and searches for them more than tripled in November 2017 when she was parading around town during her third pregnancy.

And who could forget when the princess introduced Prince Louis to the public for the first time, sporting a fabulous, red Jenny Packham dress.

eBay searches surged for Packham fashion after her son’s debut, more than doubling their usual number.

As for her fellow duchess, Meghan’s top influencing moment was during her May wedding when she walked down the aisle in a dazzling, Givenchy dress. Afterwards, searches for the designer increased by 60 percent.

But Kate and Meghan weren't the only two to make the royal cut.

The adorable Princess Charlotte came third place, sparking searches for floral crowns (60% increase) and dresses (40% increase) as they became the must-haves of kids wear.

Her elder brother George came fourth for his popular Peter Pan collared shirts, followed by the Queen in fifth, due mostly to her elegant brooches.

It is understood that the snap was taken shortly after Prince Louis’ christening in the garden of Clarence House.

The future king will certainly be celebrating his fifth birthday in style. Rumour has it Kate and William have whisked the children off to the Caribbean.

The family are said to be holidaying in the exclusive island of Mustique with Kate’s family, including younger sister Pippa and her husband James Matthews.

Their chosen destination is extremely private with a no-fly zone over the island, and only 100 villas.
