Okay, her hair looked better than most new mothers, but I give her a pass on that given that most new mothers aren’t expected to appear before the entire world. And yes, she was wearing a dress (and those aforementioned heels) while the rest of us would have opted for a pair of sweats. But those differences aside, she has the swollen abdomen that comes with birth, and there was no girdle involved here. Thank you Kate.

These two have been the cutest during the Olympics.

Today, St. James’s Palace launched OfficialRoyalWedding2011.org. The site promises to feature every bit of information about the April 29th nuptials of Prince William and Catherine Middleton, including updates about the service and procession, a virtual tour of Buckingham Palace, and exclusive videos. The site also lists that it is currently working on a livestream for the ceremony itself, which is great if you want to watch the wedding from your laptop or smartphone. But perhaps the most important part about this new royal technological development: This will be the first place to release details about Middleton’s wedding gown! We can hardly wait!

Kate Middleton greets the crowds after she and Prince William officially launched the new RNLI’s lifeboat ‘Hereford Endeavour’ on February 24, 2011 in Trearddur, Wales.

In the past few days, those on the guest list have been opening their invitations - a white card gilded with gold in a pale brown envelope. The Queen’s initials are die-stamped in gold on the card below a crown. It reads: “The Lord Chamberlain is commanded by the Queen to invite [name] to the marriage of his Royal Highness Prince William of Wales KG with Miss Catherine Middleton at Westminster Abbey on Friday 29 April 2011 at 11.00am.” Guests are asked to reply to the Lord Chamberlain’s office which is handling the ceremonial and formal parts of the preparations. The dress requirements are given as “uniform, morning coat or lounge suit”.

This was the extraordinary scene yesterday as Prince William’s fiancée went for lunch with the woman who will soon be her stepmother-in law, the Duchess of Cornwall, for a primer on marrying into the Royal Family. 

Camilla, of course, knows all about advising princesses in waiting. Thirty years ago she sat down with a teenage Lady Diana Spencer in the run-up to her marriage to the Prince of Wales.

Kate Middleton nail polish by Butter London -

The limited-edition nail laquer is grayish-blue and glitter-infused, according to Nonie Créme, Butter London’s creative director. And of course, it gives a cheeky nod to Kate’s pre-engagement nickname, “Waity Katie.” 

Way to class it up, Butter.

Consider it bought. I haven’t even looked at it yet but I’m getting it. 

Well obviously I need this. C’mon.
