Her hair has been brown in all the pictures up to now. I know a lot of people who were blond at birth who became brown later but don't know anyone who had brown hair for 5 years & is now naturally blond. But surely they aren't putting streaks in her hair at this age. Maybe it's just me who finds this strange.
My daughter's hair would get quite blond in the summer.....it is the sun.

The Cambridges are simply brilliant in how they handle themselves and their children. William and Kate seem so in love. And those three kids are just stinking cute.

Scandinavian royal vacation :)
I always assumed Victoria was tall, but she seems less so next to Mette-Marit.

In royal-adjacent news, James Middleton got married earlier this month:

I've been listening to an interview with Shetland Wool Week Patron for 2020 and 2021, Wilma Malcomson, as part of the online Knit + Escape presentations, and she got to meet Prince Charles. (He was there to open something fishing-related, but he's also a patron of an initiative to promote UK sheep breeds and wool production.) She said she was given three weeks' notice, had to keep it secret, and was nervous going into it, but she said that he was really easy to talk to, and she could almost forget who he was.

Funny how our age and the decade we were teens dictates our lifelong attitude to men's hair. A true flower child of the sixties, I like longer hair on men and have no issue with ponytails. These super short, shaved sides so popular today are abhorrent to me. Some how we never hear people complain about too short hair but we are out there.

That’s about the most stunning gown ever - looks like it was made for her!
She was stunning. Perfect dress for a Bond premiere.

The dress was customized for her. Original dress has long sleeves instead of a cape.


She had Bond girl hair too. Her hair style was similar to one Diana Rigg wore in "On Her Majesty's Secret Service"

Jenny Packham has been such a good choice for Kate over the years, and the cape is cool - very Queen Maxima!

But I still don't think that hairstyle was right for this dress, regardless of the inspiration.

Yes, a lot of her best evening looks are Jenny Packham along with a few McQueens.

If I agreed with you, we’d both be wrong.

I loved her entire look from hair to shoes. She always looks amazing, but that is absolutely perfection!

I think Prince William looks handsome. He may be balding, but he's still got that boyish charm about him.

I'm not a makeup specialist but there's something different about how Kate's makeup is done this time and it suits her incredibly well. Stunning outfit for a James Bond premiere.

To me, her makeup looks a little more sheer than usual. Maybe less foundation, more bronzer/highlighter? It does look good, and suits the bright gold of the gown.

Yes! That's definitely part of it, she normally has too much foundation for my taste.

Kate's dress for the Bond premiere is part of a capsule collection Jenny Packham designed in honour of the 60th anniversary of James Bond.
