William and Kate photographed at the gym together + News from the Boodles Boxing Ball

William and Kate were photographed leaving London's Harbour Club gym on the 22nd of September after working out together. Gym goers were surprised none other than the Duchess standing beside them on the treadmill. Could you imagine? Kate even looks stylish leaving the gym in a fitted black jacket and pants with a long white t shirt underneath. It's quite amazing the royal couple do go to the gym together, they are obviously very comfortable with each other. 

While it is always wonderful to see news photo's of the couple, I think we were all secretly hoping they would attend the Boodles Boxing Ball. I had anticipated they might make a surprise entrance as the ball is in aid of the Starlight Foundation, a children's charity William has worked with and thinks incredibly highly of. Unfortunately the couple decided not to attend this year. I would love to see Kate in another evening gown and she is always at her most glamourous at this event. However, Pippa managed to steal the show tonight in a slinky red dress with a plunging neckline. Pippa spent the evening chatting to ex spice girl Geri Halliwell at the event which costs almost two thousand pounds for a table of ten. For more photo's from the Boodles boxing ball and news of Pippa in general click HERE.

Looking at Pippa's dress I couldn't help but notice how similar it is to the pink Issa dress Kate wore to the event in 2008. One could certainly tell the pair are sisters. I think this is one of Kate's all time best looks.

Duchess Kate also attended the event in 2006 and 2007 wearing a similar grey Issa dress which is particularly stunning!

Finally I was reading the Daily mail earlier and saw this simply adorable video footage of William and Harry as toddlers playing the piano for a photo shoot with Charles and Diana. In the 1985 video William is encouraged to kiss Harry on the forehead as a delighted Princess Diana watches on lovingly. Charles is seeing playing peekaboo with a handkerchief to encourage the boys to look at the camera. A wonderful momet where the entire family are very happy. We often only recall the demise of Charles and Diana's marriage but obviously there were happy family times too. Diana looks stunning and radiates in her role as a mother.


UPDATED: I received a request about Pippa's signet ring.  Royal Reporter Richard Eden said

"The ring is a clear indication that Kate will soon be a princess. Their father, Michael, was reported to have inquired about a coat of arms from the College of Arms back in 2007. When Pippa first wore the ring it looked as though the Middleton's had found their family crest".

There doesn't appear to be a clear photo available, however I will continue to search and update!

Speaking of Pippa, judging by how close she and boyfriend Alex Loudon appear to be, I wouldn't be surprised if another Middleton wedding is on the horizon :)

  1. The blue dress is not Issa. It's from BCBG. A litte request? Do you have a close up of Pippa's signet ring? It's gorgeous and I love that she wears one.

  2. Thank you Peonyc- I will have a thorough look for a photo and information on the ring and update the post. :)

  3. wow! they do NOT look pleased in the pic of them leaving the gym..... but i'm curious why they did not attend the ball? do you think just to try to keep that low-profile? i'm disappointed : (

  4. Thanks so much!! So appreciated! I'm a lurker on the site and I love it.

  5. Anonymous - You know I'm actually quite surprised they didn't attend because it is in aid of the Starlight foundation, Previously William met children from the foundation at the ball and long before the engagement Kate hosted a table there. I think they chose not to go because they are definitely keeping a low profile and this wasn't an official royal engagement. I would love to see Kate in evening gowns, Aside from the BAFTA reception and the ARK gala they haven't attended evening events yet.

    Peonyc- Thank you so much for your kind comment. If you ever have any questions/requests please ask and I will do my best to find the information :)

  8. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than
    just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all.
    Nevertheless think of if you added some great graphics or videos to give your posts more, "pop"!
    Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips,
    this website could undeniably be one of the very best in its niche.
    Excellent blog!

  9. He became interested in HCG as a diet aid, and started developing the drug as
    a dietary regimen for losing weight. Was it mixed with alcohol and sprayed it would be
    devastating, one can imagine to have. Bones and nails
    are also strengthened, which is an important factor that effects more than your appearance.
