We could all see that Kate Middleton looked lovely, coming down the aisle of Westminster Abbey on April 29, 2011. Now we know that she smelled lovely too, and it wasn't just from the romantically chosen flowers in her bouquet.
In choosing her black Alexander McQueen dress, Catherine seems to be pushing our psychological buttons once again, linking herself in our minds with Princess Diana and reinforcing her own image as an archetypal Fairytale Princess.
As Palace advisers are acutely aware, Britain’s new golden couple are currently treading a fine line between trying to maintain the privacy and normality of their daily lives while having become dazzling uber-celebrities.
This is what royalty is good for. William and Catherine showed sincere interest in the young cancer patients they met at the Royal Marsden Hospital. William is President of the hospital, a role he consciously took on to support a favorite charity of his late mother, Princess Diana.
Over the last few months, Catherine has raised a few fashionable eyebrows a number of times when she’s re-worn jeans and dresses at several royal and public occasions, even prompting some sites to put up entire galleries of her “recycled” outfits. My question is: why is this such a big deal to the chic and famous?
