There a number of stories in the press today I'd like to share with you. Beginning with a topic close to every girls heart......Nail polish :) Duchess Kate's favourite brand has been revealed as the Essie Allure Pale Pink Nail Polish. Kate chose the subtle shade for the royal wedding. It is available for $8 and described as
"A seductive sheer with a natural finish, perfect for a French manicure."
Other striking shades from the Essie collection include the fuchsia bachelorette bash, the rose eternal optimist and the mauve lady like.
Stuart Weitzman revealed via Twitter that Kate's brown suede clutch is called the 'Muse'. (With thanks to What Kate Wore) The clutch must be from a previous collection. It is entirely possible they will reissue it.
The press and the general public have become increasingly interested in the woman known as Kate's minder. Assistant private secretary Rebecca Deacon is reportedly one of the most important people in Kate's life right now. 29 year old Rebecca has become Kate's right hand woman after being personally selected to be part of her team. Rebecca has worked for William and Harry since 2007 when she played an important role in organising the Princess Diana concert. Rebecca lost her father at a young age and her mother has since been ordained as a vicar.
A source revealed
"William has never forgotten the way his mother was left to cope without any support from courtiers. He is determined that will never happen to Kate, even though it has brought him into conflict with officials from time to time. He wants Kate to feel totally secure so she can focus on the family. Nobody is suggesting Kate and Rebecca have girlie nights in, of course Pippa is still Kate's best friend but Kate has come to trust Rebecca's advice."
