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.”

Pippa Middleton Gets Involved in Gun Scandal

Photos of Pippa Middleton have made the sister-in-law of England’s presumptive future king a worldwide sensation, but nothing quite like the shot this weekend when she was snapped laughing as a male companion in a car pointed a gun at a photographer following them in Paris.

The image shows Middleton, the younger sister of the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, looking back at the paparazzo and grinning as her friend, the driver, reaches down and aims what appears to be the gun. But now it appears that the excitement, which included reports that Pippa Middleton could face criminal charges, may have been overblown.


ABC News has learned that the photographer says he knew all along the gun was a fake and has been telling people he never felt scared. Even friends of one of the young fashionistas in the car told ABC News today that they have the toy gun in their possession. The Sun had reported that the Paris Judicial Police department is “poised” to launch a probe into the incident, but police told ABC News that there is no investigation, because no one has filed a complaint.

It was revealed in January that lawyers for Middleton sent a cease-and-desist letter around to six media agencies that distribute paparazzi photographs worldwide.  The letter was said to warn the agencies that unless their photographers stop following Middleton, she will pursue legal action, which could include an injunction and legal costs.

Buckingham Palace said it would not comment on the incident, since it does not officially represent Middleton because she is not a member of the royal family.
