Hello everyone! Sorry for the delay in this post! The Duke and Duchess have finally made it to Bhutan on the fifth day of their tour. I wonder if they are as exhausted as I am? Keep reading this post for the latest round up and photos from the day!
Rocky Landing – The Duke and Duchess arrived to Paro airport early Thursday morning . It was reported that the Duke and Duchess chose to sit in the cockpit to watch the landing of the plane. Paro is reported to be one of the hardest airports in the world to land on. Literally, only a handful of pilots can manage the difficult descent because of the surrounding mountains. Once on the ground, for the first time, this whole tour, (I believe?) we were able to watch a live stream of the event curtosey of Bhutan Broadcasting. The Duke and Duchess were greeted by the King’s sister, Her Royal Highness Princess Chimi Yangzom Wangchuck.
Outfit Details: The Duchess is wearing a repeat of her Emilia Wickstead coat dress we first saw in 2012 with an added belt. She accessorized the look with her LK Bennett ‘Fern’ pumps and LK Bennett ‘Natalie’ straw clutch. The ‘Gold Charm’ earrings were confirmed to be by Brora on Twitter.
Royal Hunger Games – Following their arrival The Duke and Duchess received a traditional welcome as they were escorted to the Tashichhodzong to meet the King and Queen of Bhutan. Upon meeting the King and Queen it is reported that the Duke and Duchess bowed and curtsied. The group spent quite a bit of private time with each other in the temple where they received blessings and lighting butter lamps before heading to Thimphu’s Open-Air Archery Venue where they tried their hands at archery and dart throwing. This moment has definitely turned out to be one of the highlights of the entire tour!
Outfit Details: – The Duchess wore a skirt inspired by the Bhutanese kira, which is called a half-kira. The skirt was personally made by Kate’s seamstress. She paired it with a cape from Paul & Joe, lavender earrings from Kiki McDonough, and LK Bennett heels.

Outfit Details: Catherine is wearing a Tory Burch gown, Gianvito Rossi heels, and Gold Charm Brora earrings. The shawl is still unidenified.

Kate Middleton is pregnant! No, seriously, for real this time.
While speculation of Prince William’s royal heir kicked into high gear last week, St. James’s Palace this morning confirmed the worst-kept secret in England, and announced that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting their first baby.
The signs were all there—check out the hints of Kate’s pregnancy!
“Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby,” the palace said in a statement this morning.
No doubt intending to keep this highly public news as private as possible, there was no word on whether Kate and Wills are expecting a boy or girl, or a possible due date for the little royal, though as an announcement has been made, she’s clearly past her first trimester.
Kate Middleton revealed the hints of a baby bump last week—see the pic!
The palace did announce that Kate was “in the very early stages” of her pregnancy, however, and today was admitted to King Edward VII Hospital in London due to suffering hyperemesis gravidarum—in other words, acute morning sickness. She’s expected to remain in the hospital for just a few days and will rest at home after.
“The Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Harry and members of both families are delighted with the news,” the palace said.
As is the world at large and those in favor of the continuation of the monarchy, we’re guessing. Congrats!
