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!

The black lace gown was quite daring for Kate, but the statement dress was a flawless option for the 37-year-old.

Kate wore black shoes and a matching clutch with the dress, as well as her beautiful Erdem earrings.

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.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by  (@princess.diana.forever) on

"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.

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.

We're shaken, but not stirred, with the latest Bond 25 news.

Prince Charles has reportedly been invited to join Daniel Craig in the next superspy movie, according to The Sun.

The heir to the throne "discussed" a potential cameo in the next flick, while visiting the set of the film alongside 007 stars Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes and Naomie Harris. 

The publication claims that' “When Prince Charles visited the film set a few weeks ago, a cameo was discussed. Now he is considering it.”

Prince Charles has a strong connection to the British intelligence network. The Prince of Wales has been Royal Patron to the intelligence Services since 2011, which include M15.

Charles' mother Queen Elizabeth’s previous Bond cameo was at the 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony, and received rave reviews so he'd have big shoes to fill.

A convincing body double of the Queen made a dramatic entrance to the London stadium by throwing herself out of a helicopter and parachuting down into the tournament.

Another insider also told The Sun that if Prince Charles turns down the opportunity, then “Harry and Wills could be in producers’ sights next"

“Spending time inside our security and intelligence agencies, understanding more about the vital contribution they make to our national security, was a truly humbling experience,” he said

He continued;

 “These agencies are full of people from everyday backgrounds doing the most extraordinary work to keep us safe. They work in secret, often not even able to tell their family and friends about the work they do or the stresses they face. They are driven by an unrivalled patriotism and dedication to upholding the values of this country. We all owe them deep gratitude for the difficult and dangerous work they do.”

Bond 25 is due out in spring of 2020, though production issues have halted production numerous times.

Daniel Craig received an ankle injury on set which required him to have surgery, and director Danny Boyle left the film over creative issues. Cary Joji Fukunaga has replaced him in the director's chair.

Another source told The Sun, “Bond 25 producers are desperate to sign Prince Charles. It is no secret that the film has suffered a number of setbacks but landing a royal could be just what the movie needs.”

Appearing in the coveted Vogue magazine is one of the most lucrative gigs in the media and fashion business, and it looks like Meghan Markle will be involved in the September issue.

The Duchess of Sussex will reportedly invite photographers into her Frogmore Cottage home for a photoshoot, but without Prince Harry and her newborn baby Archie.

According to the Sun, the new mum will be guest editing for the issue and will write about important topics which she holds dear to her. She will not appear on the cover, however.

The royal, philanthropist and global style icon will be joining British editor-in-chief Edward Enninful to create the most important issue of the entire year.

Enninful has been forward in his intentions to diversify the magazine, which is perhaps why Meghan arranged the collaboration directly with him rather than US Vogue boss Anna Wintour.

The British editor has been a long-standing fan of the Duchess. In an interview with The Evening Standard, he previously expressed his hope of her appearance in the magazine: 

"Meghan is an example of how far we've all come. I'd love for her to be on the cover of Vogue."

An insider Vogue source told the Sun : "Meghan is going to write a piece on causes such as female empowerment and women’s education.

"Edward has been courting her since day one. Anna is massively miffed that she’s missed out. This is nothing to do with Archie, or family, or home life. It’s purely on women’s empowerment."

Meghan's editorial debut will also include an opinion piece and a list of female 'change-makers', who will pen personal essays within the iconic pages also.

The former actress appeared on Vanity Fair's infamous cover after her relationship with now-husband Prince Harry became known.

The Duchess of Cambridge previously appeared on the cover of Vogue UK for it's 100th edition, in partnership with the National Portrait Gallery.

We'll have to wait and see if Meghan's collaboration will resemble Kate Middleton's in any way. The new mum was recently named one of Vogue's 25 Most Influential Women of 2019.
