Wills not always a fan of Kate’s fashion

While women around the world drool over what Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, wears, it seems her husband is not always the biggest fan of her clothing choices.

As the couple landed in Australia as part of a royal tour, Kate stepped off the plane wearing a bright yellow dress.

The Kate fashion blog What Kate Wore revealed the dress was from designer Roksanda Ilincic, although it was customized for the duchess.

The Mirror reported Heather Easton, who was in the crowd waiting for the royals, told Kate she liked the dress, but the duchess told her, “William said I look like a banana.”

It’s not the first time during this trip Kate has admitted Wills didn’t care for her outfit. When a woman complimented her on a green Erdem coat she wore, Kate said she liked it, but William thought it was a “bit bright.”

Wills jokes about another baby

Oh, Prince William, you are so funny.

He had to have known this would cause a tizzy – and it did.

While talking with a well-wisher during their New Zealand tour, a woman who had made his son Prince George a shawl, Prince William said: “You might have to make another one soon.”

Cue the #GreatKateWait2 hashtag on Twitter. (OK, not really – just one person, Paul Harrison from Sky News, who also used the hashtag #holdyourhorses.)

One reporter noted Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, was spotted drinking water during a toast, but then also noted Kate rarely drinks at these kinds of events, particularly in front of the media and cameras.

It is, of course, highly unlikely Kate is going through a royal tour while in the early stages of pregnancy. If we all recall, she was quite ill when she was pregnant with Prince George and even landed in the hospital with morning sickness. During this tour she has sailed a yacht (and beat her husband), and has more activities ahead. Does not sound like the itinerary for a woman who, if pregnant with a “spare,” may have severe morning sickness again.

Already looking like a king?

A body language expert has called Prince George an alpha baby.

“Despite the fact he’s among complete strangers, George is already holding court. Sitting right in the middle of the group with his feet pointing together and knees out like this implies a high degree of self-confidence and not the slightest flicker of social anxiety,” Judi James said in an article she wrote for the Daily Mail.

George is a “calm, extremely sociable and very self-confident baby.”

Prince William, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, and their adorable son Prince George are on a royal tour of New Zealand and Australia.

Royal tours are great for the countries where they are taking place (the royals do tend to bring crowds which can be a boost to the local economy), but kind of a bore to others.

This time around, though, we’re seeing lots of photos of Prince George, who until now has only been spotted a handful of times. This is exciting.
