Have you heard the news? I’m going to be an auntie!
OK, so that’s not really true. But I could be Kate Middleton’s sister. I wouldn’t need to change my name or anything, just, um, lose a pound or two? And bring out an over-hyped party planning book. And change into a new dress every couple of hours. Easy peasy.
All the celebrity magazines have of course been awash this month with news of Kate Middleton’s pregnancy. It makes me a little bit sad, as it was only recently that I opted to put money on a horse, just because it had the word ‘squirrel’ in its name, rather than on a royal baby for 2013. Needless to say my squirrel horse didn’t do very well.
Despite missing the opportunity to cash in on Kate’s morning sickness misery, I can still get involved in the whole excitement of it – what names will they choose? What maternity wear will she be seen in? Will she be too posh to push? All the important questions naturally. I’m not normally a royalist, but everyone loves an excuse to think about something other than the conflict in Syria or Libya or some other stricken country ending in ‘a’. I got properly into the royal wedding. I think I may even have shed a tear.
Renowned as I am for my fashion sense, I thought I’d pick out a few outfits for Kate from Tiffany Rose. What do you think of these?
