There were a number of Kate related articles in the papers this week. The first was from the Telegraph who broke the news that Kate has passed a Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) Advanced Open Water Diver qualification, meaning she can dive to a depth of 30 metres (98ft). Kensington Palace confirmed the story but gave no specifications, however it is believed she qualified for her PADI in Mustique.
While we are on the topic of Mustique, People gave an insight from a fellow traveller who met the royal couple when he was vacationing on the island with his wife in May 2008 > http://bit.ly/1IUnQo4
And finally, there are rumours circulating that Kate wants “at least three children”. Camilla Tominey, Royal Editor at Express has the inside scoop > http://bit.ly/1KWWLTD
Below are my favourite repliKates of the week ...
This week, Lauren shared a photo of the popular Cartier watch repliKate from eBay, and she kindly reviewed it along with the impressive rock on her finger!
I recently purchased the Geneva replica Cartier de Ballon Bleu watch from Ebay. It was shipped from America to the UK door to door in 1 week and I'm really pleased with it. The chances of me ever affording an original Cartier are slim to non existent so at $34.99 with free shipping it seemed too good an opportunity to miss out on!!! This watch face is slightly smaller than the one the Duchess wears however I'm not fond of large watch faces and as my wrists are the slimmest part of my body I thought I'd give it a whirl and I'm really pleased with the over all look!
It was a little big but I managed to persuade a local jeweller to remove two links free of charge!!!
I decided to team it with my M&S replica kate ring which I bought a couple of years back just after the royal wedding. I have checked today and the ring is still available to purchase on the website so it must still be very popular.
My Kate ring sits nicely with my wedding ring and sapphire eternity ring.
Whilst I love replikating....I'm in no way as thin as the beautiful duchess and so this watch and ring combo is the perfect way to replikate, whatever your size or shape without breaking the bank!!!!! And I think you'll agree that the over all result is very convincing!
Happy shopping every one!!!
One of Kate's favourite Bristish designers, Goat Fashion, is now available the USA at Saks Fifth Ave. They just launched their Autumn/Winter '15 collection and will be adding more styles over the coming weeks.
I wonder if we will see Kate wear this new quilted version of the LK Bennett 'Sledge' pumps!? What do you think?
