A year ago today everyone was struck with Royal Wedding fever. After organising street parties and hanging bunting, a billion people from across the world tuned in to watched Prince William marry Kate Middleton at Westminster Abbey. In a service which was more perfect than anyone could have hoped for.

Happy Anniversary Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

Twelve months on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have continued to captivate the world with royal engagements both here and abroad. In the most glorious manner we’ve watched the Duchess blossom into her position as a member of the Royal Family having become a patron to a number of charities and going it alone on official engagements. But most impressively, together, they have managed to add a breath of fresh air into the monarchy.

Time really does fly so from the Bath-Knight team and me, happy first Wedding Anniversary to Prince William and Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Here’s to many more…

Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Waxworks- Madame Tussauds

New waxwork figures of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been revealed at Madame Tussauds in London this morning. The figures, which depict the moment that the royal couple announced their engagement, are the first in a series which portray the royal couple in their first year of marriage.

After seeing photographs of the waxworks I was stunned to see just how realistic the figures look. Every single detail of the couple has been catered to from Prince Williams and Kate’s height, their clothing, hair, jewellery and even stance.

Kate’s waxwork sees her wearing the navy blue dress which women across the country rushed out to buy and the sapphire engagement ring, which previously belonged to Princess Diane. Whilst Prince William is dressed in a suit and tie to match what he wore on the day their engagement was announced and true to form even includes his fading head of hair.

I think that the figures are a lovely way to celebrate the couple’s first wedding anniversary and are the perfect photo opportunity for royal enthusiasts who may never get the chance to meet them in person.

Wills and Kate will be on display alongside other royal waxworks including figures of The Queen, Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, Prince Harry and the late Princess Diana. It’s also been noted that a new waxwork of The Queen will be created to note her Diamond Jubilee in the summer.

I’m sure that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will bring lots of visitors to Madame Tussauds.  I’d like to go along and see them for myself as the craft work put into creating these waxworks is fantastic. I’m truly intrigued to find out how Madame Tussauds artists create such magnificent pieces.  So if you’re heading to London for the Easter break check out Madame Tussauds– an indoor activity which is a great option if the weather doesn’t perk up.

I’ve really enjoyed following the coverage of Prince William and Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on their first official royal tour. The tour has taken them around Canada where they celebrated Canada Day, visited cities such as Ottowa, Montreal, Quebec and Calgary and finally a visit to California in USA.

The trip has provided some fantastic photographs- I’ve chosen a selection of my favourite, which include Kate cooking in Montreal, the couple attending Calgary Stampede Rodeo, canoeing in a beautiful lake in Canada. a Hollywood red carpet event in LA and meeting crowds of fans from across the Atlantic.

Enjoy!

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in Canada just in time for Canada Day!

I’m sure that many of you will have seen the great photographs of Prince William and his wife Kate as they landed in Canada yesterday for their first official royal tour.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as they are now officially known, had a warm welcome from Canadians and today will be celebrating Canada’s 144th birthday as 1st July is Canada Day.

Kate Middleton Canada Day

I was fortunate enough to spend some of my childhood growing up in the beautiful country, and know that today is a really special occasion for Canadians as they celebrate the 1897 union of colonies which created Canada.

Luckily ‘Canada Day’ is a nation holiday so there is plenty of time to celebrate with BBQ’s, parades and a host of other festivities. I read that Prince William and Kate will be celebrating in Ottawa- hope they have a great time.

Prince William Canada

Celebrations don’t end in Canada. Here in the UK special Canada Day celebrations are taking place in one of London’s most recognised landmarks Trafalgar Square. Visitors can watch a classic Canadian hockey tournament, meet Canadian Paralympics and participate in lots of other fun Canadian themed activities.

Happy Canadian Day from myself and all at Bath-Knight!

Wimbledon 2011- A Royal Visit from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

Wimbledon-logoIt was great to see Prince William and his new wife Kate in the royal box at Wimbledon yesterday.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived at centre court unannounced to watch British number one Andy Murray. He successful got through to the quarter final joining the likes of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.

It was wonderful to see the royal support- Kate and Prince William even joined in a Mexican wave with fellow centre court spectators. I thought that Kate looked so stylish, dressed perfectly for Wimbledon in a traditional white outfit.

The tournament is getting more and more exciting as we get closer to the finals at the weekend. Yesterday’s day of play brought some unexpected action as number one in the world and 2010 Wimbledon champion, Nadal suffered an injury to his foot, and sad news for the Williams sisters as both Venus and Serena were out after their matches.

Keep up to date with Wimbledon on BBC channels. Today at Wimbledon is the ladies quarter finals.
