Photos of Kate from Christmas Eve

Thursday, December 29, 2011

I am officially on vacation right now, but I have to briefly break from break to post these great shots of Kate on Christmas Eve.  William played a game of soccer the night before Christmas, and Harry and Kate were along to cheer him on.

 Although blurry, they all highlight a happy Duchess right in her element.  Remember where you have seen this look before?  In 2005, Kate wore a very similar get-up (mostly thinking hat) to Gatcombe Park.  These recent photos now have a very vintage 2005 feel to them.

Even with the similarities, her subtle change in style, or perhaps simply the sophistication of experience, do differentiate Kate Middleton from our present Duchess.

One last little treat for you as we roll toward the New Year.  @JordonLee on Twitter sent me this great video he put together.  A fun collage of pictures from this year--and some from before--highlighting Kate's star-studded year.  I love how the video begins with the engagement announcement and REALLY love the end as she "walks down the aisle and into history."  Thanks for sharing, Jordon!

If Kate isn't out an about between now and 2012 this will be the last post of 2011.  Happy New Year to you all!  It has been so much fun watching Kate and Royal history happen this very momentous year.  Looking forward to enjoying so much more with you all in 2012!
