We are loooong overdue for a Middleton sighting, so I was delighted to see that Carole, Michael, and James were at Twickenham today to watch the England v. Australia match. They were seated one row in front of a very enthusiastic Prince Harry.
I am not sure who the redhead with James is. Perhaps a friend or relative? Maybe one of you all has an idea? Let me (and the rest of us) know in the comments, if you do! As always, Carole looks ridiculously chic. I am trying to figure out what scarf she is wearing.
BBC Sports News tells me that England was, more or less, crushed and are now out of the competition. I should not have had to Google that, though, because Carole really told the tale. I have said it before, and will say it again: we know from whom Kate gets her expressive game-face. I love these shots. The resemblance between the two is so apparent here. (P.S. is that Guy Pelly behind her?)
It was not a good game...
It looks like Carole is wearing a gilet with a latch-clasp. That which is visible feels very Ralph Lauren.
I just still love to relish these moments. My propensity to gloat over the Middletons' success must speak to a personality flaw, but I do love to remember how this family was excoriated in the press for so many years and here they are...their daughter is a princess, a duchess, a global super-star, and they are grandparents of the future king. Ahhh, he who laughs last, laughs best. It was worth the wait.
So, loss for England, but win for Royal/Middleton fans. You really must look for the silver linings in life. :)
