The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge hosted a Christmas party for RAF families at Kensington Palace this year. The Christmas partying doesn’t stop at the palace – Will and Kate are due to travel to an RAF base in Cyprus to throw another holiday party for RAF personnel and their families. Today’s party included RAF personnel and their families from the RAF bases at Coningsby and Marham.
Kate seemingly wore a new outfit – or new-to-us – which had a holiday vibe. The Emilia Wickstead skirt is red plaid, and reminiscent of a comfy blanket. The black cardigan is Brora. I would wear that cardi, and I rarely say that about Kate’s clothes. But I love a good cardi. The black boots are a nice touch too – the outfit would have looked unbalanced if she just wore black flats or nude heels. The whole ensemble feels Christmas-y without bashing us over the head with cuteness.
Meanwhile, an “insider” told the Telegraph’s Camilla Tominey that it seems likely that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will actually stay at Anmer Hall this Christmas, rather than stay at the main house in Sandringham. The insider said:
“Harry and Meghan really enjoyed staying at Anmer Hall last year, especially spending quality time with Prince George and Princess Charlotte, and there’s no reason why they won’t want to do the same this year, especially as Meghan is going to be heavily pregnant. It’s the best of both worlds in that they can take part in all the festivities at the big house, while retreating into their own space when needed. There would be total astonishment if Harry and Meghan don’t stay with William and Kate.”
Considering all of the shady stories about how Mean Meg made Poor Kate cry LAST Christmas, I would be shocked if Meghan and Harry did stay at Anmer Hall. But maybe this is a Cambridge play too – wage a campaign against mean, horrible, diva Meghan and then (again) Will and Kate get to look conciliatory and peacemaking by inviting Harry and Meghan to Anmer. Then Harry and Meghan look petty if they refuse.
