Prince Harry has headed off to Australia to begin his new military gig. As his sister-in-law Duchess Kate Middleton and brother Prince William await their second child, Prince Harry will be focused on taking command for a geographic career change, reported Yahoo News.
At 30, the son of Princess Diana and Charles landed to cheers from his fans prior to meeting with the Australian Defense Force (ADF) Air Chief Marshal Mark Binskin. In accordance with royal protocol, Prince Harry headed to Duntroon Military College to hand over a letter penned by Queen Elizabeth II to Binskin to acknowledge her appreciation for the opportunity.
While Prince Harry immerses himself in the military, pregnant Princess Kate is finding herself the subject of a fashion slam by a well-known author, reported People.
Canadian author Margaret Atwood recently was questioned about her views on Duchess Kate’s fashion style.
“I think she dresses quite uneventfully,” opined Atwood.
In addition, the author of books such as The Handmaid’s Tale speculated that the Duchess of Cambridge doesn’t even choose her own clothes, but allows others to inform her of the appropriate attire.
“I think she’s watching her back. I think she probably has people who pretty much tell her what is appropriate for her to wear. I don’t think she’s become the fashion plate that [Princess] Diana was, and I think she’s probably doing that advisedly, wouldn’t you say?”
But perhaps Kate Middleton’s sister Pippa can come to her rescue as she also starts a new career as a dress designer, reported OK magazine.
Initially Pippa hoped to become a TV host. When that failed, she launched her plans to create the “Pippa Dress” with designer Tabitha Webb.
The new clothing enterprise is part of her plan to raise money for a charity event. Pippa and her brother James Middleton will be bicycling across Europe as part of their effort to earn funds.
As the Inquisitr reported, Pippa has profited in her role as a royal relative to popular Princess Kate. Although she didn’t make it in her desired U.S. TV career, she’s become a journalist.
Among Pippa’s penning passions are her own column for a magazine, a role as a Vanity Fair contributing editor, and freelance gigs authoring columns for a newspaper. In addition, Middleton edits a magazine called Party Times and has even authored a party-planning book, Celebrate: A Year of British Festivities for Families and Friends.
