Did Charles hold an umbrella for Diana or does he for Camilla? Not trying to compare anyone, just wondering if William picked up this habit from his father or someone else.

Charles is always a gentlemen; Camilla usually prefers holding one of her own see-through umbrellas but whenever necessary Charles holds it for her.
He did the same for Diana.

Quote:
Robert Jobson ‏ @theroyaleditor #royal William speech: "African Cats is a great documentary. It is also a superb educational project in its own right."
#royal Will: "It will help many, many people around the world appreciate our planet's extraordinary planet’s natural heritage."
#royal William: Africa’s natural heritage is the world’s natural heritage. We have to preserve places like this for future generations.
#royal William: "We must act now, coherently and together, if the situation is to be reversed and our legacy preserved."
#royal William: "Spread the word about the work of Tusk in this battle to preserve Africa’s unique natural heritage."

LOL! I remember that night. Member prior to when they got married they're last appearance it was raining and they each had an umbrella or in Canada when it seemed like the umbrella was taking control of Catherine haha

BTW I swear it looks like William dyed his hair dark brown it was much blonder before. The styling isn't much different but it looks much fuller for some reason.

First off, they look amazing. Wish I could see this movie, as not only do I adore the Big Cats, but to listen to Patrick Stewart, Captain Picard, narrate the thing? Happy sigh... :oD

Second...Has anyone seen any close up pics of the collar and/or sleeve details of Kate's outfit? I do embroidery and also add beads/stones when needed. I also make jewelry, so have several beads and stones handy around here. I'm willing to bet if I saw it up close, I could make a copy of it to jazz up a dress of mine that badly needs an up grade/bit of a boost.

Thanks in advance!! :o)

Nice to see them together again and for such a worthy cause. And I could listen to Patrick Stewart all day long! Thank you, Ghostnight, for your tireless work in sharing your videos and other information with us all.

Surely you jest!

P.S. I agree about Charles' tailoring - very snappy. The camera is unforgiving with a single-breatsed suit - a bit 'thin'. Wonder what the change of wardrobe decision was about for William. Maybe the weight-loss prompted a quick re-think?

She has a head of beautiful dark hair - she should let it be is my opinion. Touch up if she needs to for gray but leave it solid. At most do sun-high-lights. IMO.

Crown Prince Frederik has worn both purple and velvet suits, and worse still - a purple velvet suit.

First, ghost_night, thank you so much for all the links to pictures and videos . Your dedication is appreciated.

I'm so glad to see William and Catherine working together again. They're such a good team, and are able to pretty much bounce off of each other. I loved William's speech. You can literally feel his passion for the cause, and I'm a firm believer in the fact that if one has true passion for one's job, one will be able to literally set the world on fire. I think he's bringing attention to something that is very dear to him, and I hope that his efforts are not in vain. I had no idea how extinct lions and cheetahs have become until I read/heard William speaking today.

I love the fact that William holds the umbrella for Catherine. It's such a gentleman-ly gesture on his part. Shows us all that chivalry is not dead (just forgotten by the majority of the male population, but I won't get into that here). As someone pointed out, William appears to be rather worn out, but I will venture and say that perhaps he has been working a lot of shifts to make sure he has the days off that he needs for the engagements this week (as well as their first anniversary weekend). I may be wrong, and it could turn out to be something completely different, but it's just my guess.

EIIR, yes, Charles certainly knows how to wear a suit, and I love the classic and timeless look of either a double or single-breasted suit jacket. William's appears to be very well tailored, and he looks spectacular. As for Frederik's choices of purple and velvet suits, all I'll say is this; Your Highness, please put those things far, far away, and never ever take them out. They are better suited for a costume closet of a very horrid off-off-off Broadway production of...I don't even know what. How horrid indee
