First Birthday Gifts: Starting from a $44,000 Rattle and lots of other gifts

Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana
Man, it pays to be a princess! Kensington Palace released a list of Princess Charlotte’s first birthday presents — and a few that were given to her for her birth last year — and it includes myriad extravagant offerings. From a $44,000 rattle to a six-figure charity donation made on behalf of the youngest royal, leaders and dignitaries from around the world spared no expense when it came to celebrating Prince William and Kate Middleton’s daughter’s first year of regal existence. "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are incredibly grateful for all the letters, gifts and good wishes they have been fortunate to receive in the year since Princess Charlotte was born," the palace shared in a statement on Monday, May 2, which is the little princess’ birthday. Perhaps the most luxurious of Charl

Duchess Catherine
Inside the $10,000 Look Kate Middleton Wore in Paris Kate Middleton isn’t afraid to wear a piece more than once. Nope. Her Royal Highness might splurge on a custom design every once in awhile, but she makes sure she gets the return from it, wearing the pieces multiple times. The result is a well-curated wardrobe that can pack quite the price tag. Take, for example, one of her latest looks on the Paris stop of the royal tour. In this look, the statement piece was no doubt the Chanel dress, in a nod to French fashion. Though the price isn’t available at the moment, we’ll wager it was quite expensive. The piece seems to be bespoke, as we can’t find it in the latest collections, but an eagle-eyed Twitter user pointed out that it’s possible that it’s a take on a look from the brand’s pre-sp

Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton to mere mortals, took part in a 100 metre sprint alongside her husband and brother-in-law on Sunday to help promote the London Marathon. It turns out that even while sprinting Kate looks like she is just about to step onto a red carpet, smiling serenely as she glided towards the finish line during the relay at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in East London.

‘You Nearly Beat Me!’ Prince William Jokes with Catherine Duchess of Cambridge at Charity Race They’re not big football fans (that we know of!), but Princess Kate, Prince William and Prince Harry made the most of their Super Bowl Sunday with a visit to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London. The royal trio stopped by the start line of the London Marathon Community Track in the shadow of the 2012 Olympic Stadium in support of Heads Together, their ongoing campaign to highlight mental health. The royals joined 150 Team Heads Together volunteers who are preparing to run the 2017 London Marathon in support of the campaign — along with women’s marathon world-record holder Paula Radcliffe, 43. The royal trio ran the first leg of a five person relay at the London Marathon Community Track, w
