A Garden Party for Kate, the Cambridges Looking at Schools for George & Win $500 Jewellery from StyleRocks!

We are back with a fantastic giveaway from the lovely folks at fine custom jewellery brand StyleRocks, as well as a look at the latest news updates.

Our first topic on the agenda is one I've received a number of queries about: which garden party will the Duchess of Cambridge attend this year? I asked the always informative Gert's Royals about possible dates and she kindly informed me there are two parties at Buckingham Palace over the next week. One on Thursday 19th and the other on Tuesday 24th. I very much expect we will see Kate present at one of these, but as to which it will be, that's something of a toss up. The Cambridges had engagements in London this week and are attending the Chelsea Flower Show on Monday, so both are on the cards, as they will likely be staying at Kensington Palace on both days.


One always knows the summer is beginning when the garden parties come round, and it's always interesting to see the royals in attendance, the guests, and of course the fashion. Kate last attended a garden party in 2014 when she opted to wear her beautiful lace sheath dress by McQueen with a Jane Corbett hat to match.


In 2012 and 2013, Kate selected designs by Emilia Wickstead.


I must admit, Ms Wickstead has never been one of my favourite 'Kate designers'; the structuring and tailoring of the designs, and use of heavy fabrics don't appeal to me, thoughts which has been reflected by many readers. Interestingly whilst we're on the topic of garden parties, Ms Wickstead has launched a capsule collection with Matches Fashion which are just ideal for such a function. Below, the Olive Hydrangea Print Dress, the very pretty Carrie Floral Print Dress, and the June Floral Cut-Out dress (a possibility if modified without cut-out detail). The designer's collection has built on the SS16 1950s theme.

What would you like to see Kate wear for the garden party?

Prince William visited the Royal Marsden hospital this morning to officially open the Ralph Lauren Centre for Breast Cancer Research. William heard about advance research to combine hormone and drug treatments to shrink tumours, and was told it is reassuring for patients to know that research happens two floors from where they are being treated. The Prince said: "Seeing the courage and spirit of patients I met today it is hard not to feel positive about the work being done here."


The Royal Marsden holds a special significance for William. The late Princess Diana was president from 1989 until her death; Prince William took on the role in 2007. A portrait of Diana takes pride of place at the hospital.


Whilst chatting with patients, talk quickly turned to George and Charlotte. Kathryn England, a patient at the hospital, revealed: "He said his household is very noisy at the moment. He said he was looking at schools, I suppose for George he would be." George, who turns 3 on 22 July will begin school in September 2017 shortly after he turns 4. More from Richard Palmer:

Richard Palmer Twitter Feed

The choice of schools for George and Charlotte has been a much discussed subject of royal commentators. It has been widely thought Prince George will follow in his fathers footsteps and attend the pre-prep school Wetherby, located half a mile from Kensington Palace. Earlier this year the Mail Online reported George's name had been put down. With William suggesting he may not renew his contract with EAAA next spring, Wetherby seems a strong contender. It also raises the question, could a move to London be on the cards?


The other possibility in contention is a local school in Norfolk close to the family's country home, Anmer Hall. George has been attending nursery at the nearby Westactre Montessori, and it has been suggested William and Kate could favour a school in the area. A friend told me there has been word locally of George attending Gresham's in Holt, or Beeston Hall in Cromer.


At the moment, one imagines William and Kate are weighing up options as their decision will not only determine where George goes to school but where the family will be based for the next several years. I think it very much depends on what Prince William's plans are if he does indeed leave the EAAA next year. Is a larger royal role in the planning for the Cambridges? I  can't see William leaving the air ambulance so soon if that is not the case. Alternatively, choosing a Norfolk school would see them continue to spend much of their time at Anmer, and perhaps staggering royal engagements and trips to London. It will be very interesting to see the Cambridges' final choice.

Kate's much-loved Great Plains 'Cezanne' Dress has been re-released in a striking new print. The Duchess first wore the dress in 'winter pink' in 2013 and was last seen wearing it in 'pine needle' over Christmas. Now, the brand has released the dress in an Ebony/Navy combo. The £75 dress is described: "Precision pleating features from the waist to the hemline of our best-selling Cezanne Pleated Dress for a feminine style that is as alluring in design as it is in print. Cinch in the waistband a little further when transitioning this chic dress into the evening." It's a very versatile and wearable piece - a great wardrobe staple.

Now, time for an exciting mid-week activity I think you'll enjoy! We've had several fun giveaways this year, but I think this one is going to be especially exciting. Australia-based custom fine jewellery company StyleRocks are offering one lucky reader $500 AUD to spend as they wish on their beautiful pieces.

StyleRocks

StyleRocks was founded in 2011 by the enormously talented Pascale Helyar-Moray, who was eight months pregnant when her husband offered to buy her a present to celebrate their twins' arrival. Following an online search, Pascale found herself frustrated at the lack of customisable options available. So, after the twins were born she decided it was time to harness her passion for jewellery, and thus StyleRocks was born. 

StyleRocks

It's been an incredible five years for the brand which has gained a global customer base and recognition from publications such as Vogue: "Prepare for your jewellery collection to suddenly expand." The brand has won a series of prestigious awards, such as a Microsoft BizSpark Plus Scholarship, and was selected among a handful of startups for the DEMO Asia 2012 event. Below we see actress Cate Blanchett with Pascale wearing the Russian Rings 'Charlotte' necklace.

StyleRocks

The key to StyleRocks' success has been allowing its customers to create their own bespoke items and thus express their individuality through their jewellery selections. Have you ever seen a stunning pair of earrings or a necklace and thought: "I would love that in another stone or metal." With StyleRocks you can design the piece exactly to your taste. Let's take a look at possible designs for the 'very Kate' Cushion Checkerboard Gemstone Stud Earrings. A look at the classic style in different stones.

StyleRocks

The earrings come in a selection of different styles.

A look at the rainbow of available colours and options for custimisation.

StyleRocks

The Cushion Checkerboard Studs with Pearl Drops offer a fresh and colourful twist on the classic.

StyleRocks

The 'Just In' section of the website offers a modern twist on pearls, with pearl bangles and rings available in numerous options.

StyleRocks

If you're a fan of a specific gemstone and wish to assemble a collection of pieces, it's very easy to do that with StyleRocks. Take pink amethyst for example; look at the Emerald Cut Sterling Silver Earrings, the Emerald Cut Cocktail Ring, the Cushion Diamond Halo Ring, and the 9ct Rose Gold Necklace.

StyleRocks

The brand's best-selling Russian Rings Necklaces (as seen on Cate Blanchett earlier in the post) have proved enormously popular. The necklaces made of three intertwined rings are the Charlotte, Alexandra and Zara at 40mm, 30mm and 20mm respectively. The image below offers a good look at the sizes on offer.


The necklaces in rose gold, gold and silver.

StyleRocks

The Diamond Russian Necklace - the Elizabeth in 9ct gold is a striking piece. The necklaces can be worn in several ways as seen below.

StyleRocks

The necklaces very much remind me of Kate's Cartier 'Trinity' necklace. The Duchess last wore the $49,000 piece in New York in 2014.


Russian wedding rings are a classic symbol of love. As with all their pieces, the rings are customisable through choosing the metal, engraving and font. Below, we look at the Willow, featuring three gold bands and the Double Russian Wedding Ring Gemelle.

StyleRocks

A look at several of StyleRocks' engagement rings. Each engagement ring is made bespoke to your specifications.

StyleRocks

There are so many beautiful pieces... One collection which fans of the Duchess may particularly enjoy are the limited edition necklaces designed to commemorate the Royal Tour of India and Bhutan. The pieces were designed in collaboration with the lovely Susan from What Kate Wore.

StyleRocks

We discussed flowers and symbolism before the tour. The Lotus Flower is India's national flower and has long been associated with beauty.  Below, the Lotus Flower Necklace in Yellow Gold with Diamond and in White Gold with Sapphire.

StyleRocks

The poppy is Bhutan's national flower and demonstrates delicacy through its simple petals. We see it in Yellow Gold with Amethyst and White Gold with Ruby.

StyleRocks

Pascale shared this additional information on the brand:

    1. Paypal instalments - pay for your jewels, interest-free, for up to four months. Great for the more expensive purchases.
    2. Valuation certificate for any item valued at AUD500 or more. Not only is this for insurance purposes, it helps people understand that blue topaz is actually blue topaz, and so on. The certificates are provided by an independent valuer from the National Council of Approved Valuers.
    3. Free shipping using DHL Express (international orders) or Australia Post Platinum (local).
    4. An interesting titbit: with the decline of the Australian dollar against the US dollar, this has made our jewellery more affordable for the UK and US/Canadian customers. This goes some way to explaining why nearly 60% of our sales are for these destinations.
    5. 3D printed rings. Like the look of the ring online but not sure how it would look on your hand? Think you're a size 7 (or size M) but not absolutely sure?  You can purchase a 3D ring for $29.95 and it arrives 12 business days later. Then when you come to purchase the 'real' (metal/gemstone) ring, that $29.95 is credited against your purchase.

    Style Rocks

    It has been enormous fun playing around on the website and looking at the different possibilities one can put together. Back to the giveaway, if you would like to win a $500 AUD gift certificate, there are two compulsory entry options:

    1. Subscribe to the StyleRocks newsletter (towards the end of the homepage you will see an option to 'sign up to the newsletter' click it and in the box that asks 'I came across StyleRocks through', scroll down to the last option and select 'HRH Duchess Kate'. You will also receive $25 AUD credit towards your first purchase when you subscribe.
    2. This one is fun! Leave a comment on the blog and let us know how you would spend the prize. Would you add a new piece to your collection? Perhaps buy a gift for a loved one? 

    Optional Additional Entries

    Wishing you all the very best of luck and a huge thank you to Pascale for sponsoring the giveaway! I'm very excited to see your favourite pieces.

    We'll see you on Friday for Kate's engagement with the 1851 Trust, if not sooner should she attend Thursday's garden party. :)

    10. I’m building up my jewellery collection. The ‘Yellow Gold and Diamond Narrow Hoops’ is the foundation of every jewellery box must have. They are the more bang for your buck jewelleries. These Hoops made it easy to complement evening outfits and every day looks by pairing with desirable detachable drops. I imagine myself wearing these elegant Hoops alone for shopping trips and meetings. When sky’s the limit, it opens the door to no end.

      I really like when you tell us about Williams engagements as well :) Alot of his engagements go unreported (although I know of all of them since I follow so closely). I wonder if you could start doing a summary post of his engagements once a month or something? Might be too much work but I think it would be appriciated by some who doesn't have the time to look his stuff up :P

      I think they have ALOT to think about when choosing school. As you said, it will probably be alot of other variables involved!

    49. Hi! I have registered for the newsletter and liked StyleRocks on Facebook and Twitter.

      I know exactly what I would do with the gift from StyleRocks! My mother passed away after a very horrible time with anesthesia-induced dementia (she was only 62 years old and completely taking care of herself - had surgery and woke up with no short term memory and unable to recognize her surroundings). She had a very special bond with her grandchildren and I would use the gift to go toward replicating a piece of her jewelry for her grandchildren.

      Than you for this opportunity!! I love your blog and look forward to reading it every chance I can.

        I like that dress as well, but I liked it more with the belt.

        I'm not very fond of the Wickstead dresses. I like floral dresses in that kind of silouette. But somehow these doesn't do it for me!

      2. I also liked the lace dress better with the belt. It is a lovely garment. And I agree with those who would like to see some of the dresses from the southeast Asian tour again, especially the pale blue ones. One of my very favorite pictures of Kate is the one from Christmas that Charlotte posted above. To me, Kate has never looked lovelier.

    63. Hi everyone, I registered for the newsletter at StyleRocks and there were so many great pieces of jewelry, that it's hard to say which I like best, but I think I am leaning toward the checkerboard earring collection. They are just lovely and I like that there are so many options etc. The are very much like what Kate would wear.

    64. Hi! First of all I would like to say thanks for the wonderful giveaway. I subscribed to the Newsletter, liked StyleRocks on Facebook and followed the brand on Twitter. Now, I love bracelets, so I think I would buy a bracelet, possibly the Four Stone Cushion Sapphire Silver Bangle or the Four Stone Cushion Smoky Quartz bangle. Or perhaps I would buy a piece crafted in emerald, since it is my birthstone. I would like if StyleRocks opened a store here in Brazil, their pieces are beautiful.

    65. I'd like to see Kate at Garden Party in that pink dress by Emilia Wickstead or the blue one from the same designer which she wore several times. I love them! Or maybe she will wear sth new in some bright colours?

    68. Without a doubt I would go for the pearl drop earrings. I have had my eye on them for some time. Who hasn't?:) Pearl jewelry is my favorite and I would love to have pearl drops instead of the studs I usually wear. I've already signed up for the newsletter and liked Stylerocks on twitter and Facebook. I will also share on twitter (@MeAndMyMumKate). Thanks for another lovely giveaway!

    69. I would definitely order a Russian Rings necklace because they are so versatile and would look great with anything. For something more flashy I love the lotus or poppy necklaces with a colorful gemstone. I am subscribed to the newsletter and follow style rocks in Twitter. I also tweeted about the giveaway.

    70. So for schools. Do you knink if you are a Prince George or Princess Charlotte all the preschool and primary schools just make a spot for you if you say you want to attend? I know many of the elite preschool and primary schools in the UK, especially near or in London,and also in the US in large cities have waiting lists well in advance of a year. The age 12 and up seem to be if you test in and we have space you get in but with the added caveat that if they have lots of qualified applicants lots of other stuff gets considered, family connections etc. Will be really fun to see were they land. I really believe they will be in London within a year. I get the sense that the Queen is ready to slow down or at least pick and chose a bit more. ali

        I'm sure they put the kids up on lists before they were even born. (just like many wealthy families do), but I doubt there would be much problem for them to get their kids a spot in schools :P

        I also think it will be London. Seems like a perfect time.

        Delete
      2. Hee hee Rebecca, so true. They probably have the kids names down for several schools. One reason I was thinking the move will be within a year is there was a mention in the coverage of the Queens speech yesterday that it was the first time she had not walked up the steps but used a lift. There just seems to be a fairly big uptick in events that the younger generation are attending over the last several months.

        Delete
      3. The Queen seems to have a nasty round sore on her lower right leg, maybe the result of something being removed or an injury. That might have been the reason for the lift. She seemed to use her umbrella as a cane at the garden party. I have never understood why the back steps at the Palace do not have a railing!

        This morning when I first saw The Tree of Life in Rose on Style Rocks web site, thought there is something feminine and matriarchal about. I can't believe the coincidence that you picked it for you and your daughter. It seems the best variation of the three depending on peoples test. I think each is over $500.00.

        Good Luck Adrienne

    72. I would expect that some pressure has been or is being put on William to take on more royal duties for himself and Kate too, so it wouldn't surprise me if they stick with Wetherby and move back to London, perhaps using Anmer as their weekend getaway.
      Wetherby is a day school and I can't see Kate in any great hurry to send George away to boarding school at such a very young age. If he doesn't start school until a year from this fall, that gives them plenty of time yet at Anmer, Charlotte will be older and the move to London should be easier.
      As for the garden party, I'd really like to see her start recycling some of the lovely dresses from either the Asian tour or the Australian/New Zealand tour.

        I feel about the same. Not sure if it's pressure or just natural timing of things, but I think they are transitioning more and more towards london so it would be a natural step. Yeah, I highly doubt they would send the kids to boarding school earlier than William and Harry was!

        I really liked seeing the recent Aus/NZ repeats but I agree that the Asian tour had some GREAT dresses that would work very well for garden parties!

      For me, I love the Russian Wedding Ring - Willow - 9ct Multi Gold. I really like the idea of a ring that matches anything, so I wouldn't use it as a wedding ring.

      I like the colors and patterns that Kate has been wearing lately and I'm hoping she'll bring some of those new colors and patterns to whichever party she attends.

      If she ends up attending a garden party I would love to see her in the ice blue Temperley complete with pearl pins in her hair. I thought she looked effortlessly elegant that day. I also loved the duck egg blue Packham she wore during the Southeast Asia tour. It has a pleated skirt and the top had lace on it. I absolutely love that dress. I would also love to see the dress she wore to the polo match in Santa Barbara again. I would be just as happy with something new. She always looks beautiful no matter what she wears.

      So after spending more time looking at the jewelry options I think I may have changed what I would get; I have three children and the Russian Rings Necklace - the Catherine version in sterling silver. I would have their names engraved on the rings. I could wear that everywhere. I had a different necklace that had their birthstones in it and their birth dates were engraved on them and I lost it at the hospital last year when I was admitted for an emergency blood transfusion. I was so upset. Anyway, I think the three rings would be lovely.

As for everything else, William and Kate have a lot to consider when choosing schools and deciding on William's civilian job, just like any little family but with slightly more consequence. It will be interesting to see what they choose!

      1. This is a very interesting and a generous give away. As more and more people post their reasons and plan on the choices they will make, my excitement is turning into guessing who will win. When I thought this person will win it, other posts show up which make me think twice. I can imagine the Style Rocks panel/s who will determine the recipient winner; their reason/s may be different. The necklaces were trending on their web site today. The suspense along with the products is fun.

    118. Dear author's blog,
      I am happy woman - wife and mother of 2 children. I have never bought jewellery for myself, because there has always been more important things to buy. During studies I used to purchase books and other materials for studying. When I was raising up my own family, there has been many expenses related to create own home and then the sweetest expenses for our children. I am always looking forward reading about Duchess Kate, as she is in the same age as me.
      If I won the prize, I would wear this piece of jewellery to work. When I looked on StyleRocks' website, I fell in love with Sapphire Cushion Checkerboard Studs with Drop Pearl - White Gold. I have in my wardrobe blue jacket, which I believe would suit those earrings.
      Best regards,
      Monika (my nickname: Letycjanka)

    166. I would love the Cushion Checkerboard Gemstone Stud Earrings earrings in the dark green, emerald choice. I am going to my university graduation ball in a forest green gown and would love such a stunning pair of earrings to pair it with. A beautiful choice that I could wear for many special days in the future.

      I also followed on Twitter and liked on Facebook.

      Lovely, creative collection and concept. All the best.

      P.s. I think that Kate will recycle for a garden party, possibly a Wickstead or McQueen piece. I would personally like to see her in the pink lace McQueen dress, because it is so timeless and summery, but I also think it might be quite hot in the weather. If I were to choose, I think it would be fun for her to go with a cheaper, high-street piece from Reiss or Topshop, something patterned with a knee or midi-length flowing skirt, but I think she is getting more and more into designers now for these events.

    174. I have subscribed to the newsletter! I really like a lot of their jewellery and if I won I'd be torn between a ring (I was very upset when I lost my one and only precious ring earlier this year) or a pair of earrings (which are less likely to get lost!). I'd probably go for the earrings! There are so many beautiful ones. Thank you for the opportunity!

    177. With the new video put out by the Royal Family, we can see that Kate did in fact have her hair tied back under that helmet. She looked like she had a lot of fun! https://www.facebook.com/TheBritishMonarchy/videos/1137749072913588/
