Kate Middleton Wows In Red For Queen’s Royal River Pageant

Kate Middleton was definitely dressed to impress at Queen Elizabeth‘s Diamond Jubilee celebration this Sunday.

Sporting a ravishing red Alexander McQueen creation, Kate, 30, was all smiles as she boarded the Spirit of Chartwell royal barge for a flotilla down the Thames River. The British fashion icon capped off her radiant look with a Sylvia Fletcher fascinator from the royal milliner, James Lock & Co, and LK Bennett “Sledge” heels. Prince William was, too, dressed to the nines — donning on his RAF Flight Lieutenant No. 1 dress uniform for the special occasion.

Kate was also joined by her brother-in-law Prince Harry and, of course, Queen Elizabeth herself. The royal family sailed along the Thames in a 210-ft. barge, which was decked with 10,000 roses, carnations, sweet peas and red charm peonies for big fete celebrating the Queen’s 60th year on the throne.


Prince Andrew and his daughters Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie were also present as they sailed behind the Queen on the Havengore. Meanwhile, Queen Elizabeth’s daughter, Princess Anne, and her husband Vice-Admiral Sir Timothy Laurence were on the Trinity House No. 1 Boat.

As for Kate’s family? The Queen personally invited Catherine’s family – Michael, Carole, James and Pippa Middleton – to join in the celebrations on the paddle steamer, Elizabethan.

“Michael and Carole’s inclusion on Elizabethan took a lot of people by surprise, but the Queen is incredibly supportive of the duchess and her family,” a palace insider told the Daily Mail.  ”Boats travelling in the Royal Squadron are solely reserved for special guests of the Queen, which demonstrates just how far the Middletons have come.”

Ashton Kutcher to Portray Steve Jobs in Indie Biopic

Actor Ashton Kutcher, who got his break on “That ’70s Show,” will go back to the 1970s to play tech visionary Steve Jobs in an indie film about Jobs’ early life and the founding of Apple.

Production on the film, “Jobs,” is scheduled to begin in May while Kutcher is on hiatus from his hit CBS series “Two and a Half Men,” reports Variety, the film-industry trade publication. It will be directed by Joshua Michael Stern (“Swing Vote”) and “will chronicle Steve Jobs from wayward hippie to co-founder of Apple,” according to Variety.

The timing of the story, which was published Sunday on Variety’s website, combined with Kutcher’s well-known love of pranks, led some to dismiss it as an April Fools’ joke. But CNN confirmed Monday through a representative for Kutcher that the actor has signed on for the role.


Jeff Sneider, the reporter who wrote the Variety article, said on Twitter on Sunday that the movie will follow Jobs from when he and Steve Wozniak founded Apple in 1976 to when Jobs returned to the company in the late 1990s after being forced out. It won’t cover Jobs’ later years, he said.

Kutcher’s movie will face competition from Sony Pictures, which is developing its own Jobs biopic based on the best-selling book by Walter Isaacson. A CNN.com report last fall speculated on which actor might play Jobs in that movie and threw out some names — James McAvoy, Crispin Glover, Stanley Tucci, Noah Wyle — but failed to mention Kutcher.
