I'm hoping she repeats a dress for the BAFTAs on Sunday. If it was up to me (and sadly, and KP have made this very clear to me and have asked me to stop writing, it's not), I'd go for one of these:







Or this one but with better posture, and updo, and those huge blue earrings she wore in India

Clearly the low point of married ins has not risen in what .... 50 years? And her parents wasted good money on her education? Well I guess she got the degree they wanted... the Mrs one ... I thought that was just aspirational East Coast Moms who looked for trust fund babies .... mine failed... 😀

Well it was money well spent in the sense she was able to get close to William and get the ring so  Beer

No money for St Andrews = No Horse boy  Wink


Itís not like she broke the bank:

Fees were much lower then, though shamefully I can't remember exactly as I didn't have any to pay...  But I think they were capped at around £1000 pa?

If i recall correctly, her parents didn't pay for her education.  A trust was in the family to support future generations education.

From KP Twitter :

The Duchess of Cambridge, Andrťe Davies and Adam White and @The_RHS are proud to reveal plans for their #RHSChelsea ĎBack to Nature Gardení. To inspire families to get outside and explore nature together, The Duchess of Cambridgeís #RHSChelsea garden will have a natural woodland feel and contain a:
Treehouse
Waterfall and stream
Rustic den
Campfire
Stepping stones

The Duchess of Cambridgeís woodland wilderness garden at #RHSChelsea aims to get people back to nature, and highlight the benefits of the natural world on our mental and physical wellbeing. The Duchessís #RHSChelsea garden aims to trigger memories of time spent in nature, and encourage others to go out and create new experiences in the great outdoors.






This follows their initial announcement back in January:https://www.royal.uk/duchess-cambridge-showcase-%E2%80%98back-nature%E2%80%99-garden-chelsea-flower-show

I like the sentiment a lot. But thatís a lot of nature crammed into a very small space, unless the drawing is not to scale. I think it would be more effective to use a few of those ideas and have a more realistic setting.

I hope there's no teepee rustic den ?? like the drawing.  There will be 200 articles about cultural appropriation that will overshadow everything.

Especially since I otherwise like the idea, and parents can have fun with their kids in the space.  It encourages interaction.

My first impression was "Back to nature" was a big theme among the aristocracy in Marie Antoniette's time too and that Kate created her own little Petit Trianon Hamlet

Conical huts built of poles were commonly made by e.g. charcoal burners for temporary accommodation in the forests where they worked in England, e.g. http://www.hainaultforest...k/3charcoalburnershut.htm  Smiley

It's a nice idea and I like the fact that KP actually released some photos of the behind the scenes work for once

It's a show garden - none of them are realistic settings!

I get that. But I think if people are to get out appreciate nature, which is a very good thing, a more relaxed and less busy atmosphere wouldnít hurt. Iím hoping that the actual results will look different.

And FC, I agree that itís nice to see the behind the scenes work for once.

What bugs me about this is project is the fact that Kate has never given me the impression she has any interest in the natural world other than perhaps getting out into it and shooting things on Boxing Day or growing the occasional veggie at Amner Hall.   Neither she nor her husband has ever been photographed exploring the beautiful gardens at Highgrove or supporting Charles' enthusiasm for the wildlife of the hedgerows, or for organic gardening.  William has had a lot to say about conserving things in other countries, particularly Africa, but not about conservation in his homeland.  I think it is a great thing for people to appreciate nature and spend time in the wild, but this has come out of nowhere as far as Kate is concerned, and I see here another example of do as I say not as I do.

WHAT, you don't remember her iconic b&w photograph of the endangered orangutan  Shocked

If I recall correctly she did have a few nature snapshots but they were of course all from tours in foreign countries (aka their luxury vacations  Wink). Nature photographs of places in the UK I don't recall though  Blush
