Just a quick post tonight with tidbits and information regarding tomorrow's visit. I received a lovely email from a British television producer called Kari who is currently in the process of producing a documentary about Duchess Kate. She is interested in talking to fans who follow Kate's life and style and those who have seen/met Kate. If this sounds like you and you would be interested please contact Kari at firstname.lastname@example.org
Kate paid an unannounced visit to the Royal School of Needlework at Hampton Court Palace yesterday to thank the embroiderers who worked on her wedding dress. The iconic gown was stitched using Carrickmacross lace - making technique. Flowers were hand cut from lace onto ivory silk tulle to create the design which incorporated shamrock, daffodil, thistle and rose. The embroiderers had to wash their hands every thirty minutes to keep the threads in impeccable condition. I'm hoping a photo or two will emerge in the coming days!
The school's chief executive Susan Kay William said 'It was lovely to meet the Duchess of Cambridge and to show her what we do'. If you wish to support the Royal School of Needlework you can donate or purchase an item from the online gift shop.
See you all tomorrow morning for Kate's visit with The Queen and Camilla to Fortnum and Mason. They are expected to arrive at 10 a.m. :)
