Can you believe it’s been a whole year since Prince William and Kate Middleton tied the knot at Westminster Abbey?

We still remember the first time we saw that amazing dress, the moment William kissed his new bride on the balcony at Buckingham Palace and those cute little bridesmaids!

Since then the royal couple have spent time in America, Canada and Spain, as well as royal visits all around the UK. Kate recently spent lots of time on her charity work while her new husband was deployed to the Falkland Islands with the RAF.

Kate has also inspired hundreds of fashion trends, with everything from her engagement ring to her many dresses being copied on the high street. Almost everything Kate wears sells out within hours and UK women now spend billions trying to look like our Duchess. Not bad for her first year of marriage!

We hope the royal couple will get chance for some time together soon, as there will be more royal duties in store this summer, for the Queen’s diamond jubilee in June and also the London Olympics.

Don’t forget to keep an eye on the Mecca Bingo promotions just before Kate and William’s anniversary on 29th April, as we’ll have a treat in store for you!

Kate And William Hit Hollywood And The Celebs Are Forking Out For A Peek!

If you thought that Royal Ascot was a fancy affair then you haven’t seen anything yet.  Hollywood’s elite are spending ridiculous amounts to access the newly wedded royal couple.  This weekend they are headed to LA and will be taking part in a charity polo match that is set to be celeb-tastic!

If you thought that Royal Ascot was a fancy affair then you haven’t seen anything yet.  Hollywood’s elite are spending ridiculous amounts to access the newly wedded royal couple.  This weekend they are headed to LA and will be taking part in a charity polo match that is set to be celeb-tastic!

To attend the charity match though doesn’t come cheap with people forking out a huge £60,000 for a place on one of the three competing teams  or £2,500 for a VIP ticket which allows you access to the hospitality tent, a grandstand seat and lunch.  Other tickets available are £250 which includes a seat in the stands and a packed lunch.

The world has gone Kate and Wills crazy!  They have been enjoying their royal tour in Canada and we bet the USA just can’t wait to get their hands on the couple.  The polo event is set to raise about £3 million pounds most of which will go to The American Friends of the Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry.

No rest for the Royals though later that day they will be attending the BAFTA black tie dinner in downtown Los Angeles.  Here the celebrity will be able to leach onto the Royal couple and it is expected that the likes of Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Lopez and Tom Hanks will be attending the bash.  Another expensive bash to attend with studio bosses and top agents expected to pay £16,000 a table.  Can you imagine going to such a party?  Don’t think there will be pigs in blankets and sausage rolls there that’s for sure!

Do this lovely couple get any time to breathe?  Not a day goes by without new pictures from their latest adventures and Kate’s latest fashion statement.  For once the fashion being followed by the press if of style, grace and classiness.  Something a few of our celebs could really learn from!  We love you Kate and Wills, we just hope you are getting a moments peace here and there to enjoy being young and newlywed!!!

Alfred Angelo Fulfills The Disney Dreams Of Girls Everywhere!

There doesn’t seem to be a week that goes by that it is announced that some celebrity is engaged or has just gotten married.  It was just 3 months ago that half the world was glued to their screens in anticipation to catch the first glimpse of Kate Middleton’s wedding dress and then were mesmerised watching the whole royal wedding.

A few weeks ago it was Lily Allen’s turn to walk down the aisle and last weekend both Kate Moss and Abbey Clancy got married. Kate Middleton’s wedding was the only real princess wedding but now it appears that we can all have our own princess inspired wedding dresses if we wish.  Disney Princess inspired that is.  Yes, that’s right, Disney and bridal gown designer Alfred Angelo have launched the princess-inspired wedding dress collection that many girls have probably waited for their entire life.

So whilst many girls have always wanted a princess-style wedding, they can now go one better and look like a Disney princess too.  The Disney’s Fairy Tales Weddings collection has been inspired by the most popular Disney Princesses – Ariel, Aurora (sleeping beauty), Belle, Cinderella, Jasmine, Snow White and newest Princess Tiana.

The dresses are now available from over 65 bridal shops across the UK and Ireland and range in price from £599 to £1199.  Will the celebs be rushing out to buy these?  Who knows.  If all the rumours are true that Ashley Cole wants to marry Chezza again, maybe he will pick her up one of these Disney frocks.  They are actually surprisingly nice dresses, I expected them to be quite ridiculous and over the top but they aren’t!  Check out the video below to see all the dresses! Is this the gown you or your lady will be rushing out to get with your bingo winnings?  Ah well, it’s nice to have the Disney option I guess!  What on earth will the Disney franchise produce next though I do wonder?!

Move Over Men, Your Ladies Are Stealing The Limelight!!!

Ladies, ladies, ladies!  Even when the men are meant to be the focus of attention, the ladies in their lives seem to take on a central role.  Look at the likes on Andy Murray and not his girlfriend, but his mum!  Judy Murray or cougar Judy as she now seems to be known as after […]

Ladies, ladies, ladies!  Even when the men are meant to be the focus of attention, the ladies in their lives seem to take on a central role.  Look at the likes on Andy Murray and not his girlfriend, but his mum!  Judy Murray or cougar Judy as she now seems to be known as after openly flirting with none other than her son’s opposition.  Cringe.

Wimbledon was filled with celeb ladies and with the nervous faces of the leading ladies in the players’ lives.  Mothers and girlfriends alike were focused on throughout the many matches but award for best facial expressions undoubtedly would go to the ladies at the final.  Never mind the slow motion videos in between games we were more interested to see what the ladies were doing!

Speaking of ladies stealing the limelight, as much as we love Prince Wills, we can’t help but love Kate more!  She’s married to a prince, she always looks amazing and she just seems so nice.  You would expect loads of girls to not like her and be jealous but in fact she’s the nation’s new sweetheart and we want to be her friend!  She has become an instant styles queen and has continued to dazzle us all whilst on the royal visit to Canada.  The majority of coverage from their visit focuses on Kate and how much the crowds are loving her.  Looking radiant and taking her time to speak to all her younger fans we can only hope that there will soon be a mini Kate or Wills soon enough.  How cute!

From one prince to the other, Prince Harry seems to have a new love in his life.  Will there soon be another Royal wedding in sight and another day off work?  Not too sure what the queen will think of Harry’s new love interest Florence Brudenell-Bruce and her underwear modelling.  Her cousin has also said that “the family’s colourful background, which includes blazing rows and visits to rehabilitation centres, could raise eyebrows in the Royal Household.”  I would like to think that the royals are more relaxed than they used to be and won’t judge Florence for her career.  Who knows!  I’m sure plenty of people are hoping that it won’t be anything serious though just so their hopes and dreams  of marry a prince aren’t brutally ended. Ah well, only time will tell!

Fancy A Game Of Celeb Spotting? Head To Wimbledon!!!

It’s not just us who has Wimbledon fever, the stars and celebs are streaming to catch some of the action live!  Already this week there have been plenty of celeb sightings as well as the lovely newlywed royal couple. On Tuesday Jay-Z was spotted at Wimbledon minus Beyonce who was probably taking a well-earned rest […]

It’s not just us who has Wimbledon fever, the stars and celebs are streaming to catch some of the action live!  Already this week there have been plenty of celeb sightings as well as the lovely newlywed royal couple.

On Tuesday Jay-Z was spotted at Wimbledon minus Beyonce who was probably taking a well-earned rest after headlining Glastonbury and promoting her new album.  In an attempt to stay out of the spotlight and enjoy the match and glorious weather Jay-Z had donned his famous dark shades.  Luckily for him, the young royals the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge aka Kate and Wills were there to cause a stir and attract most of the attention anyway.  Kate of course was looking flawless and stunning as usual even though it was the hottest day of the year!  (How does she do it?!)  Kate wasn’t the only Middleton at Wimbledon either as her sister Pippa was also there with her boyfriend Alex Loudon stamping on all the rumours that they had split up.

Wimbledon also attracted Harry Potter stars Rupert Grint and Oliver Phelps, Hollywood star Kirsten Dunst and all round legend Sir Bruce Forsyth.  US Vogue Editor Anna Wintour arrived to support her friend Roger Federer who was playing against French man Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.  The famously stone faced editor in chief even looked delighted as Federer took the first two sets with ease but we bet she reverted back to her usual glum face when he lost the match.

Federer’s loss can only be Andy Murray’s gain (fingers crossed) as long as the handsome Lopez doesn’t put him out in the quarter finals.  His mum certainly thinks her son’s opponent is rather handsome as she had an openly flirty exchange with him over Twitter.  How embarrasing!  She better remember cheer for the right person at the match then!!!

Royal Ascot 2011: True Hat Madness!

Royal Ascot has arrived and it sure didn’t disappoint.  What other event would attract both the Royal family and Z-list celebs?

Royal Ascot has arrived and it sure didn’t disappoint.  What other event would attract both the Royal family and Z-list celebs? When some people may focus on the horses and the actual races, many others look forward to seeing what crazy hat creations will be debuted this year and if any celebs will make the humiliating mistake of failing to meet the strict dress code requirements like Roxanne Pallett last year.

Ladies day is set to bring many weird and wonderful spectacles with women aiming to outdo each other in the fashion stakes.  Many people are already betting on what colour of hat the Queen will wear at the Ladies Day event that takes place on Thursday 16th, with yellow currently being the favourite.  Even though the events only began yesterday, there has already been an array of emm how shall I put this… interesting hats! For many people the bigger the hat the better.  One of Tuesday’s most memorable hats is the Louis Mariette head-piece worn by Anneka Tanaka-Svenska.  How these women don’t topple over I will never know.

Ladies day will probably see the celebs flocking to Ascot, each wanting to look the best.  So far, the Royal Ascot has been lacking in the usual celeb appearances.  Well some lesser known ‘celebs’ have been in attendance like Jezza Kyle and his wife, Danielle Lineker and Holly Valance.  We look forwards to when the A-listers begin to arrive and hat war truly commences.  Other people attending the Royal Ascot had attention grabbing iPad and iPhone hats, huge feathered creations and even a ginormous crown outline created with flowers.  Lady Gaga was surely an inspiration for many of these wacky designs!

The lovely Kate Middleton is yet to make an appearance at the Royal Ascot.  We eagerly await her arrival to see what she will be wearing next as she has been displaying an impressive array of hats and outfits over the past week at the many royal engagements she has been attending.  We will keep our fingers crossed that she will appear at Ladies Day.  Bring on the rest of the week and the rest of the hats!  Show us what you’ve got ladies!!!
