    An elderly woman in the United Kingdom was rushed to hospital in a serious condition after being knocked to the ground by a motorcycle escorting the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
    Prince William and Kate were on their way to a ceremony in Windsor yesterday (local time) when a marked police motorbike in their convoy was involved in a collision with the 83-year-old woman in southwest London.

    “The Duke of Kent could face a police investigation after he was involved in a car crash with a student in Brighton.

    The Queen's 83-year-old cousin was driving a Jaguar when he collided with another car in Sussex earlier this month.

    Olivia Fellows, 21, claimed her Mini was written off in the incident on 2 June.”

    2019 has not been a good year so far for the royals with accidents.

    I hope Ms. Mayor can recover as best as possible.

    I have to admit I love this matronly style that's fashionable now. I much prefer it to the ridiculous things Americans wear at the musical awards etc. But I've always been hopelessly old fashioned myself.

    I suspect a Caesarean section. I had a C-section and my work allowed 3 months off, while natural delivery was 6 weeks. I also noticed that she looked pregnant in that white dress when her and Harry showed the baby. It took me months to get my waist line back.

    Snip

    While Meghan will likely take a three-to-five month maternity leave, with possible public appearances sprinkled in earlier, Harry has not taken paternity leave.

    Absolutely I did but she only had 13. And what a hoot, not meaning to follow Royal stuff, but I'm watching a TV show right now and guess who the first head of state was to send an email!

    HINT, the answer is not Queen Victoria this time

    Thank u for posting them. Kate doesn't always copy to the detail. However, she has been known to take the D's outfit and use it in a personal way.
    What I saw was:
    Similar bow
    Similar hat
    Similar "dot" thought
    Similar pleats
    Similar long sleeves...
    And this was wore at the 84 Ascot when she was pregnant with Harry; who just had his own baby.
    I'd like to think that is why Late wore blue.
    Idk....I'd like to think I'm right.

    Yes!! You and I had the same thoughts! It’s like we can remember each outfit she wore and when

    We are kindred spirits

    I forgot about this picture (Source: Instagram)
    Some styles stick around a lot longer. William & Kate dress Prince George like this still.
    The hats that both Princess Diana and the lady behind her are wearing are still being worn. Cool.
    Long live the Kangol, fanny pack, and Adidas track pants!

    Aye, but you forget in the U.K. they are granted much longer maternity leave then us in the US (of course I’m assuming you are on the US as you mentioned only 6 weeks) and well, she’s royalty, she can take as much as she needs, right? Lol

    ETA: I do have to admit, her face still looks fuller even a month out from the birth. Granted, it suits her, but I thought for sure she would have slimmed in the face by now as she has always had a svelte figure. You could be right about a c section as you can not go right back into exercise etc after. And she was over due by reported accounts. So not illogical thinking

    This Is What Princess Diana Wore to Ascot in the '80s

    I remember getting my copy of Majesty magazine in 1987; tender age of 14, and seeing Diana in that flowered puffed shoulder coat-skirt suit and just being so in love with it, just admiring it and her in it.

    Aww, the memories and the innocence of youth. So miss everything about that.

    Who is the lady in the picture with William and Kate who is wearing the taupe (beige) dress? Her hat is quite different.

    I have seen them in my Majesty magazines over the years, only reason I am familiar lol

    King Willem Alexander became king in 2013,when his mother Queen Beatrix left the throne (can’t think of right word there, abdicated? Seceded? Blah I need more coffee lol)

    A little bit about Holland’s royal family
    I think many might even recognize Former Queen Beatrix maybe


    Everything about the Dutch royal family and the royal palaces

    I can adapt to change, but I'm basically an old-fashioned girl :) When I saw my dental hygienist yesterday for 6-month cleaning/check-up, it was obvious that she's expecting. DH saw her in April but she didn't mention that she was pregnant and didn't look it. I asked if she was registered and perused her baby registries when I got home. All kinds of new-fangled stuff, most of which doesn't appeal to me. I don't gift people with things I wouldn't want for myself :D I decided that I would stick with my standard, old-fashioned baby gift: A beautiful hardcover version of Beatrix Potter's The Complete Tales of Peter Rabbit with a stuffed animal from the stories - most likely Peter Rabbit in this case (it's a boy).
