Royal fans have captured a very sweet moment from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s visit to Cardiff during the Queen’s Jubilee weekend. ‘Fifi Love the Cambridges’, shared a video to Twitter, captured on 4th June when the couple visited Cardiff with Prince George, eight, and Princess Charlotte, seven, as part of the celebrations for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. In the short clip, a royal fan gushed that Kate, 40, will make ‘a brilliant Princess of Wales’ when her husband Prince William becomes first in line to the throne.
However, whether William gets the title will entirely be up to Charles, because the title is not automatically inherited and can only be handed by the ruling monarch. Charles was handed the title aged 10, and was invested as Prince of Wales during a ceremony at Caernarvon Castle in 1969.The video has resurfaced following the Jubilee and ahead of today’s Order of the Garter service in Windsor, which Kate is attending with the Duke of Cambridge.
The Duchess of Cambridge was elegant in a vibrant blue coat dress as she lead the royal family ahead of Garter Day celebrations. Kate cut a chic figure in a stunning coat dress and matching £560 Juliette Botterill hat as she joined fellow royals including the Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall and Prince William for the occasion, which is one of the most colourful events in the royal calendar.
She opted for a stunning £8,400 G. Collins & Sons tanzanite pendant necklace for the occasion, which she has worn on a number of occasion. She paired the stunning jewel with matching £6,100 earrings.Meanwhile the Countess of Wessex was pretty in a pink Valentino gown as she arrived at St George’s Chapel earlier today.Among the first arrivals were the Duchess of Cornwall’s son Tom Parker Bowles and his sister Laura Lopes, who were beaming as they waited outside the church in Windsor earlier this afternoon.
