Kate Middleton speech nerves reminiscent of The King’s Speech
Kate Middleton speech nerves reminiscent of The King’s Speech

It has been reported that the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, was so nervous before giving her first ever public speech, that it was reminiscent of the movie The King’s Speech. Kate was so worried about the speech that she felt she needed some help before it took place.

Middleton apparently turned to Prince Charles, who helped her, along with a royal advisor, with some speech training, much like Colin Firth did as King George VI in The King’s Speech. An insider explained, “You need to remember that Kate had never spoken publicly before, so it’s understandable that she was nervous.”
 
The insider added, “She was stressed about stumbling over her words and letting herself down. So she asked her advisors for training in the hope that it’d raise her confidence levels.”
 
After her maiden speech, Kate Middleton received praise from a number of people, as she seemed confident, self assured and gave a very solid speech. So, it seems that her speech training must have worked and she will certainly take heart from the response she received.

Kate Middleton following the Dukan Diet?
Kate Middleton following the Dukan Diet?

It has been reported that the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton has been following the world famous Dukan Diet. Kate joins a number of celebrities and famous faces, who have been following the Dukan Diet for years but not everybody is convinced that it is the safest diet to follow.

The Dukan Diet works in four phases. The first two phases aim to help you lose the weight and the second two phases help you to keep the weight off. However, some experts believe that the Dukan Diet is not a nutritionally sound diet.
 
The Dukan Diet cuts out dairy products, fruits and whole grains. This means that the body is missing out on vitamin D and calcium from the dairy products, as well as some important disease battling components found in fruits and whole grains.
 
Still, Kate Middleton, along with a number of other famous people, including Jennifer Lopez and Gisele Bundchen, swear by the Dukan Diet. The Dukan Diet compared to the Atkins Diet has a few similarities and is just as famous. However, both diets have their critics.

Reese Witherspoon and Kate Middleton met each other at a fundraiser and Reese was so nervous at the prospect of meeting the Duchess of Cambridge that she could not decide on what outfit to wear.

Witherspoon explained, “I must have tried on like six outfits. I’m meeting a princess. You don’t understand. You have to be wearing the right outfit and the whole thing. I don’t know, maybe we can be friends. My husband just thought I was so dorky. Whenever I am super excited about things, my husband calls it the double-barrel. That’s when I smile so big I look like a child.” 
 
She added, “She was really nice. She was lovely. She’s so composed. She seems like such a lady and I think it’s so nice now days to see someone with such nice composure and carries herself so beautifully. I would like to hang out. I’m not sure she wants to hang out with me. I could see that happening. Call me. Call me anytime.” Reese Witherspoon can currently be seen on the big screen in the movie This Means War.

Madonna explained, “I think maybe it is too soon to make a film about William and Kate but I definitely would if I could wait a decade first. I like Kate Middleton and think she’s quite chic and intelligent. I hope she’s a fan of mine, too. [W.E. characters] Wallis and Edward’s world was so diverse and complex and it was a privilege and ­honour to be ­surrounded by a wealth of history.”
 
She added, “They were such interesting characters and were ­surrounded by so many ­interesting people. I never got bored of their story.” Madonna’s movie W.E., which is based on the affair between King Edward VIII and American divorcée Wallis Simpson, is set to be released in the UK on January 20, 2012 and in the US on February 3, 2012.

It seems that Pippa Middleton is set to give her sister Kate Middleton a 30th birthday party to remember, as she has been very busy planning away for the big day. Kate turns 30 on January 9 and Pippa is eager to make sure that it is a party to remember and she has even roped in Prince Harry to help with the party planning.

A friend of the Middleton’s explained, “In many ways, this is going to be Kate’s last chance to let go like she did back in the old days when she and William first met. The party has been months in the planning. Pippa and Harry have been in the thick of it, and have recruited a bunch of friends to help. The guests have been sent ‘save the date’ cards, and told that it will probably be in London.”
 
The insider added, “Given the people organising it, you can be sure it will be brilliant.” It is believed that the party will have an 80s theme with karaoke on hand and that Pippa has planned for there to be plenty of cocktails flowing, so that Kate can really let her hair down like she used to in her younger days.

Kate Middleton shows off athletic physique at forces tribute

29 year old Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton attended an event, which paid tribute to the British forces and showed of her very own athletic physique in a stunning black Alexander McQueen dress. The strapless dress revealed her muscular arms and complimented every curve on her body. Kate Middleton was joined by her husband Prince William, while Prince Harry gave, quite possibly, his most touching speech to date.

Harry explained, “It’s often said of our Armed Forces that they are ordinary people doing extraordinary things. Well, I don’t entirely buy that. Ordinary people don’t run out under withering enemy rocket and heavy machine-gun fire to rescue a wounded comrade. Ordinary people don’t brave monsoon conditions dangling on a winch line to rescue 13 people, each in turn. For that matter, ordinary people don’t put their lives on the line for distant folk, such as the Afghans, who need our help and are now turning their country round because of it.”
 
He added, “The strength and courage it must take to see your husband or your wife, your father or mother, son or daughter, head off into the unknown – and to support them doing it – I can hardly even imagine. Like my brother, I share many of the same hopes, the same aspirations to go on operations, and the same fears, as all those who serve our Queen and country.”
 
Harry concluded, “By an accident of birth, though, it falls to 564673 Captain Wales humbly to express – on behalf of  my comrades-in-arms and people up and down the country – the admiration we feel for the extraordinary men and women we honour here tonight.” His speech was only really bested by the dress of his sister in law Kate Middleton, check out the picture below.

Singer, actress and director of the forthcoming movie W.E., Madonna has revealed how she is a massive fan of the English Royal family and in particular, Kate Middleton. Madonna admitted that she loves the sense of style that Kate has and is impressed by the way that the Royal family has changed with the times, allowing them to have more freedom to make their own choices.

Madonna explained, “She is a lovely girl with a great sense of style. Her wedding dress by Alexander McQueen was very beautiful. I like her choices. She’s elegant and still knows how to have some fun. I’m a fan of her style. The freedom that Kate has and the freedom the royal family has now is nice and is refreshing.”
 
She added, “It’s too bad that Edward VIII didn’t have that same kind of freedom back in 1937 to make his own decisions and to be the prince of the people, which Prince William is allowed to be. I like how modern they are now.” Madonna’s upcoming movie W.E. centres around the life and loves of King Edward VIII and is set to be released on January 20, 2012 in the UK and February 3, 2012 in the US.
