Royal Watch: Bill & Cathy Cambridge Spark Rumo(u)rs
We’re a little embarrassed to admit what flew out of our mouths practically in unison the second we saw these pictures of Duchess Cathy.
Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge arrive at Summerfield Community Centre, which was very badly affected by the riots last week, in Birmingham, England. She wears a wool crepe skirt and a military silk-georgette blouse by Alexander McQueen.

No, really. We’re debating whether to admit it or not.
See, we try to cultivate this image of bitchy, non-sentimental bloggers and sometimes we even pull it off.
But we might as well bite the bullet and admit it. We both blurted out words to the effect of “That looks just like something Diana would have worn in the ’80s!” And if that wasn’t silly enough, we immediately followed it up with: ” Say, she looks a little … *gasp* … OHMIGOD, DO YOU THINK SHE’S PREGNANT?!?”
Shut up. We’re still cool.
Anyway, it’s a sharp, chic little outfit and it’s in what’s become her signature colors of white and navy blue. It’s got that pseudo-military look that Diana more than flirted with in the ’80s and in which Cathy herself has dabbled a few times. It’s not a bad choice for a royal because it implies a certain level of authority even if it’s only symbolic and the fact that it evokes a naval military uniform specifically makes it feel particularly English.
William looks good. His jacket looks better fitted than normal. He overdid it on the blue, though. We can understand not wearing a white shirt because then they would have been dressed alike, but he could have gone with another color in the tie.
Anyway, in the hopes of gaining a couple hundred thousand extra hits today, OHMIGOD, YOU GUYS, DUCHESS CATHY IS TOTALLY PREGNANT!!!!
