William's 30th Birthday, Summer Sales and More

Good evening Duchess Kate readers,
Prince William celebrated his 30th Birthday yesterday with a low key dinner in Prince Charles' Tetbury home Highgrove House. William has been undergoing a three day Search and Rescue course at a nearby base in Gloucestershire. It is thought the Prince invited his closest family and friends to celebrate. Prince Charles commissioned artist Nicky Philips to paint a portrait of Kate as a special gift for his eldest son and Kate reportedly gave William a watch and treated him to breakfast in bed.

Kate was spotted shopping in Tesco, Tetbury, perhaps for William's birthday meal? Many locals were disappointed to have missed catching a glimpse of the Duchess.

Kate spent time browsing in a local antiques shop.

Singer Lily Allen's reaction to seeing Kate was simply 'Wowsers' :)

It is being widely reported Kate will throw William a bash tomorrow night and will make a speech. It is difficult to gauge the veracity of this rumour but if it's true there's always a possibility we will see a photo or two :)


I don't know about you but one of my favourite things about summer is the sales. The Reiss sale began earlier this week and features countless items which are 'very Kate'.


LK Bennett shared a photo of their shoe display from their Brook Street store when announcing their sale. There is up to 50% off selected items at the moment and Kate's favourite Sledge are reduced from £185 to £145 in off white.

The Temperly sale features amazing reductions on everything from shorts to stunning evening gowns. 


The Oasis sale is well worth a look. I've been incredibly impressed by their latest collections and ability to provide excellent quality at reasonable prices. 


Take a look at the Topshop sale here.


A number of items in Jenny Packham's Debenhams Collection are currently on sale.


Kate's Malone pumps (along with many pairs of gorgeous shoes)  feature in the Rupert Sanderson sale. They are available in caramel. I'm sure you all recall Kate wore them in grey suede.

Happy Shopping :)


A lovely photo of Kate and the Queen from their Nottingham visit graces the cover of Hello! Magazine this week.

The couple did not attend Royal Ascot during the week and are not expected to tomorrow. Unless new photos surface we'll continue with our 'Kate Loves' series next.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend :)
