Happy one-year anniversary, Prince William and Kate Middleton! Who can forget they royal wedding last year on April, 29. You cried, we cried and we all fell in love with her Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen wedding gown. Magical for everyone, right? Through this first year of them being married, Will and Kate have only succeeded in endearing themselves even more to the world because of the fact that they’re so frickin’ adorable together! Their tour through Canada and the U.S provided tons of moments of their very evident affection for each other, even though they tried their hardest to be prim! And on their home turf in England, we totally fell for Kate giggling while William showed off his dance moves at Centrepoint, last year in December?
Because of the fact that we adore these two, we wanted to do something to celebrate their one-year anniversary. It’s our little present to them. We already published an exhaustive gallery and poll of Kate’s top 25 style moments through her first year as Duchess of Cambridge, as an homage to her spot-on fashion sense. Now, we’d like to give you something of them doing what they do best — being a couple. And Voila! We have a gallery right below of Kate and Williams 15 most adorable moments together through the year. Click through each picture to look at their journey full of love, hugs, kisses and laughs. Happy happies, Will and Kate! We look forward to seeing many more years of you two being the cutest royal pair ever.
Prince Charles needs to have some control over what his very expressive face does, especially on royal visits. The man could start a war! This photograph was taken at Arlander airport in Sweden as he and Camilla arrived for an official tour. Not seen in this photo but accompanying them was the only royal who could possibly match Prince Harry in the hotness stakes in our eyes: Prince Carl Philip. Of Sweden. Where he’s known as the Duke of Varmland. So hot!
But we digress. What is going on with Charles? He was getting out of some sort of plane with two people helping him. It’s not particularly strenuous. Perhaps he ate a smorgasbord earlier that just then, decided to have a party in his stomach? Perhaps he was trying out a new “the royals aren’t stuffy” look? Maybe he saw Carl Philip and the aura of hotness was too much for him to look at? Which we can understand. We’d probably do the same. Kidding. That’s probably him remembering that he forgot to tell Mummy that he was popping over to Sweden. And Mummy would be seh-riously displeased about that.
Oh look, it’s our future husband! Please don’t ask us how many times we’ve watched this video of Prince Harry dancing, because it’s an embarrassing number. He’s in Jamaica currently — wait, we have to interrupt this to just point out the genius putting together the royal calender and sending Harry, who is known to have a gooood time mon, to the Caribbean? Excellent move. Right, so he’s in Jamaica on an official visit as a part of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations. He visited a youth center in Kingston where, during the event, a performance to Bob Marley took place. And of course, one of the dancers pulled up Harry, who was quite aptly, wearing a pair of blue (suede) shoes. Watch the video yourself to see if his reggae moves worked for you? Because they certainly worked for us. We’re going to call Harry and his older brother Prince William the ‘dancing Royals’ from now on. Remember how William broke it down at Centrepoint a couple of months ago? We think Harry wins this round solely for those pretty solid hip movements. We doubt they get it from their father, Prince Charles. Remember this?
We’re going to nominate this as the picture of the year! Prince William and Kate Middleton visited Centrepoint’s Camberwell Foyer yesterday, of which they’re both patrons. Serious hi jinks ensued with a 18 year old Vanessa Boeteng, who lives at Centrepoint. When the Prince asked her if he, “looked dapper in his wedding suit”, her answer got him to bust a move. Boateng said, “Nooooooo… Your swag was on point! He said ‘swag?’ Then we made up this dance. You dust your shoulders off twice.” And that’s the photograph you see, folks. Prince William and his swag dance, with Kate giggling at him. And you ask us why we love them?
The couple also got into aprons and made gingerbread and cookies topped with hundreds and thousands for all the residents. It was also 18 year old Tasha Barbi‘s birthday (she also lives at Centrepoint), and when Kate heard of the news she baked a special heart-shaped cookie for her, saying, “it’s your birthday cookie!” Click after the jump for two bonus photographs of Kate — who looked fab in an olive green belted dress — and Will getting down to it in their pinafores.

Our girl crush on Kate Middleton is anything but done. Not only do we love her, but we covet her wardrobe, as well. Out of all the fabulous outfits she’s worn officially, as the Duchess (eat your heart out, Fergie), it’s a proven fact by now that Kate and Jenny Packham are a winning combination. The latest gown she’s worn by the designer may be the best match yet. Kate and Prince William hosted a dinner at the Picture Gallery in St James’s Palace for the National Memorial Arboretum Appeal, of which William is patron. She wore a one shouldered, gathered, flowing silver Grecian Jenny Packham dress for the event and it looks stunning on her. Perfect makeup and glossy hair complete the look and if we didn’t think she was the bee’s knees, we’d be throwing darts at her.
They came, they saw and they totally didn’t conk. Prince William and Duchess Kate were in L.A for the weekend and amidst their whirl of activities they attended the BAFTA ‘Brits to Watch’ Awards at the Belasco Theatre. Did the Duchess shut it down? Yes, she did. Kate wore an Alexander McQueen gown and Jimmy Choo sandals and clutch and bowled everyone over. Including the celebrities! The royal couple were seen chatting animatedly with the likes of Nicole Kidman, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, Jennifer Lopez and Jennifer Garner! And each and everyone of them looked completely star struck. Also hilariously, we spotted Nigel Lythgoe lurking behind Prince William as he chatted with Nicole Kidman. Have a look and see if you can spot him in our gallery below!
And here we thought it was a slow news day! Duchess Kate and Prince (Duke?) William are visiting Canada this week, and she arrived in Ottawa today wearing this amazing red maple leaf fascinator. Yep, there’s nothing like shouting out a country with your head gear. It just goes to show Kate has both great fashion sense and a great sense of humor. Be our BFF, woncha gurl?
They’re here! Well, by here, we mean Canada but we’re at least on the same continent! Duchess Kate and her husband Prince William (or The Duke of Cambridge) landed yesterday to begin their tour of the country. While everyone’s super excited about their visit, what everyone’s really psyched about is what Kate will wear! And just like Michelle Obama, Kate has her own website that chronicles all her outfits called What Kate Wore. They’re really going to have to be on it, because our lovely Duchess has already had three wardrobe changes in one day.
First up — as you can see from the picture on the left — Kate wore a Manon dress by Roland Mouret for their flight to Canada. She paired it off with a navy jacket by Smythe, Manolo Blahnik Calogera heels and a Mulberry Polly Push Lock bag. Gorgeous! For the official welcoming ceremony to Canda, Kate emerged from the plane wearing the Cecile dress by Canadian designer Erdem Moralioglu. It’s the lovely lace overlay in the middle. That’s quite a smart diplomatic move! Then for a barbecue honoring youth volunteers, which you can see on the right, Kate wore a bird print dress by Issa. It’s the same one Kate wore the night before she married William! So far, it’s a big win because we love all three dresses. What you’re favorite look of the three?
While princess-to-be Kate Middleton‘s white hot bikini bod proves she’ll have no problem blending in with the world’s prettiest princesses, her generation’s royal posse rolls thick in good looks and svelte figures. From Princess Charlotte of Monaco to Princess Madeleine of Sweden to everyone’s favorite redheaded, six-packed Brit, Harry, this crowned crew looks good in and out of their royal garb.
Kate Middleton is set to become Her Royal Highness Katherine on Friday, and we could not be more pumped. What’s not to love about royals? They’re rich, impeccably dressed and are addicted to wearing ridiculous hats in public. Royals, they are our soul-mates. In honor of Kate’s upcoming nuptials to Prince William, we’ve collected some of her hottest looks, ranging from regal business suits to skimpy swim suits. She pulls them both off with sass and class. All hail the Queen!
