The Duchess of Cambridge has penned a heartfelt note to midwives across the United Kingdom.

2020 marks the Year of the Nurse and Midwife, so in honour of the momentous year, Kate has praised the work they do.

Kate shared that she shadowed staff at Kingston Hospital in London which taught her a lot about the work they do.

In her letter, Kate wrote:

“You are there for women at their most vulnerable; you witness strength, pain and unimaginable joy on a daily basis. Your work often goes on behind the scenes, and away from the spotlight. Recently I was privileged enough to witness a small section of it first hand, spending several days at Kingston Hospital’s Maternity Unit.

“Although this was not my first encounter with the care and kindness provided by midwives across the country, it gave me a broader insight into the true impact you have on everybody you help.”

She continued, “Your role in supporting this critical phase of development extends far beyond the complicated task of delivering a baby successfully. The help and reassurance you provide for parents to be and parents of newborns is just as crucial. It goes a long way in building parents’ confidence from the start, with lifelong impact on the future happiness of their children.”

The mum-of-three praised them for being there during such special and life-changing moments in women’s lives.

“I want to thank you for all that you do. It has been a real privilege learning from you so far, and I look forward to meeting and learning from even more of you in the coming years and decades,” she gushed.


After whisking girlfriend Meghan Markle away on a romantic trip, Prince Harry was eager to introduce her to the rest of the family.

The loved-up pair had just arrived back to London from Tromso, Norway, where they had been to see the Northern Lights. 

the smitten Prince spoiled his beautiful girlfriend by renting a lodge looking over the Norwegian Sea and mountains, which just sounds SO romantic! The Tromvik Lodge would have set Harry back a whopping £2000 per week.

Sister-in-law Kate travelled to London, with her daughter Princess Charlotte to meet Meghan. THe Duchess had previously missed out on meeting the 35-year-old actress in November, when Prince William met her at Kensington Palace, with Harry.

A source told the Sun, “It went really well and Meghan was very excited about meeting her.”

She even got to meet his gorgeous niece, Charlotte, who the 32-year-old Prince adores.

The Duchess of Cambridge had celebrated her 35th birthday in Norfolk before travelling to London on Tuesday.

“Meg had bought Kate a small birthday present – a very smart leather-bound ‘dream diary’ for her thoughts and ideas which Kate loved.”

According to the paper, Harry is serious about the relationship with Meghan, and wants to take it “to the next level”.

Harry is said to be very close to his sister-in-law Kate, and he sees her like a sister – so her opinion of Meghan will be very important to him.



She wowed the world by looking almost impossibly well-groomed and fresh-faced less than 12hours after giving birth to her second child.

At 6 o’clock in the evening standing on the steps of the Lindo Wing at St Mary’s Hospital in London on Saturday following the 8.30am birth of Princess Charlotte, Kate Middleton was perfectly radiant. And despite her slim figure, bespoke Jenny Packham dress, and, of course, her gorgeous newborn daughter, the Duchess Of Cambridge’s magnificent hair certainly didn’t go unnoticed.

Rumours have long been abound that the royal relies on strategically-placed hair extensions to give her own natural locks a boost; this weekend will certainly do little to placate the conversation. Before emerging into public, she was looked after by well-to-do hairdresser Amanda Cook Tucker, who was apparently spotted entering the maternity hospital at lunchtime on Saturday, armed with appliances and products.

But speculation is now mounting that even even the best professionals in the business would struggle to create a similarly full, glossy mane without a little helping hand.

Speculation as to whether the Duchess’s hair is entirely her own has circulated since her November 2010 engagement, but understandably neither she nor Kensington Palace has ever commented on the matter and she continues to ignite a serious dose of hair-envy in millions of women globally. 

“It’s impossible to say for certain unless you’re actually handling her hair,” Gold Fever’s Katie Jane Goldin, whose clients include Rosanna Davison, Georgia Salpa, and Roz Purcell, explains to SHEmazing! “But to have a such an incredible, gorgeous mane without some help from well-positioned extensions would be extremely rare.”

She adds: “So either she’s struck the hair-lottery – or she’s been quite clever in how she uses enhancements.

“These days, the best hair extensions look and feel exactly like your own natural strands do. You’d actually be surprised at how many people from all walks of life wear them.”



It may be three years since Wills and Kate got married, but the world has still not forgotten Pippa Middleton and most importantly, her famous bridesmaid dress.

Pippa opened up for the first time about her sister’s wedding and the dress that had her famous across the world.

“It was completely unexpected. You know, I think the plan was not really for it to be a significant dress. Really just to sort of blend in with the train. I suppose it’s flattering”

Pippa went on to say that the attention she got for the dress was “embarrassing” and definitely “not planned”.

The Royal sister also admitted that there were downsides to her fame, and she has often felt “bullied” by some of the criticism she had received in the media.

“I have felt publicly bullied a little bit just by, you know, when I read things that clearly aren’t true or that, whichever way someone looks at it, it’s a negative side. It is quite difficult. Because eventually I’m just paving my way and trying to live a life like any 30-year-old.”

But despite this, Pippa admits that her fame has given her many opportunities too.

“I have had amazing opportunities. I feel very fortunate that I’ve had access to things that I wouldn’t necessarily.”

Pippa says the famous bridesmaid dress is safely tucked away in her closet at home. Well, what better place for it!




Kate Middleton’s official painting may have been a disaster, but she is loving an unusual unofficial one!

Tom Sutton-Smith was dared by his friends to create an alternative to the controversial Paul Emsley painting created in 2012 – and it looks like a hit!

The artist explained his painting to Vanity Fair, saying: “[Kate is] kind of sparkly and I wanted to convey that in the eyes and mouth.”

Prince William was said to be delighted when they were gifted with the painting, reportedly saying: “Wow! It’s brilliant! That’s going up in my room.”

It was also said that Kate herself held the painting for some time, and seemed quite taken with it.

Do you think it is better than the original official painting?
