The signature scent, which is a blend of wood oils, rose, pear, bergamot and gardenia, will be available for testing in the hotel rooms and for purchase at the hotel’s boutique. The 3.3-oz. bottle retails for $ 195. The brand will also have its soy-based candle, which is infused with the signature scent, available for purchase for $ 72.

Martell Foundation, the Alzheimer’s Association and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, among others.
“We both have a similar interest in philanthropy,” Litvinenko said. “We wanted to see how we could work together

Top places where the British Royal family travels during winter

ADVERTISEMENT


When most people hear about the royal family, all they think about is wealth and extravagance. Most of us think that because of their position, they only spend their time in the most luxurious and expensive cities during winter. However, this is not the case.

The British royal family often spends their time in some of the simplest but coolest regions of the world. They have been known to travel as far as Africa just to enjoy themselves. Here are the top locations where the British royal family loves to travel in winter.

1. Scotland

For many years now, Scotland has been the choice destination for Queen Elizabeth during winter. Her Royal Highness and Prince Philip usually spend their time in the private Balmoral Castle. Here, all other family members usually visit and enjoy themselves. The region is ideal for many sports that are loved by the royal family, including fishing, hunting, and taking walks on the beach. The climate in Scotland is very favorable, so the family can stay a bit warmer there during winter.

2. Norfolk

Norfolk, England is an eastern county, and is a traditional vacation spot for the royal family during winter. Here, they stay at Sandringham House where there are expensive gardens, woodland estates, wetlands, a country park, and tidal mudflats to enjoy. This is the perfect outdoor destination just for the Royal family to enjoy. William and Kate own a house in Sandringham Estate, too. They love to spend their time here with their loved ones.

3. Corfu Island, Greece

When it comes to picking a vacation destination, the royal family usually considers the sand, sea, and sun. The royal family usually selects Corfu Island as an ideal place for a relaxing vacation during the winter, where they often stay at Rothschild Villa. Corfu is famously known for its wonderful scenery and secluded beaches. Corfu’s center has been named by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, because of its historic buildings including palaces, churches, and forts.

4. Kenya

Another location that is loved by the British royal family is a country located in East Africa next to the Indian Ocean – Kenya. Her Royal Highness spent time at Treetops Safari Lodge in 1952, where she received the news of her father’s death and that she was now a Queen. In 1983, she made another trip back to Kenya, this time with Prince Philip. Kenya was also the location where Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton while the couple was staying at Lake Rutundu back in 2010. The climate in Kenya makes the country an ideal place for vacations during winter.

5. Botswana

This is another favorite destination for the royal family. Its warm temperatures, as well as sunny days all year round, make it an ideal place for a vacation. Prince Harry spent a gap year helping out in Botswana, where he set up a charity for children who were in need of medical care and assistance. He also took a trip there with Meghan Markle, which helped the couple to cement their relationship.

What to Watch: Royal, Political Influencers Spark Criticism, Affect Fashion With Photo-ops

Like them, love them or despise them, political and royal influencers churn up the Internet nearly instantaneously with every public outing.
Whether stepping out for a diplomatic gala dinner, a schoolyard visit with wide-eyed students or for a hardhat-worthy ribbon cutting ceremony, the powers-that-be dress accordingly, knowing their choices will send sales skyrocketing. Their personal fashion loyalties vary — Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel favors pantsuits, beleaguered British Prime Minister Theresa May prefers skirt suits, France’s First Lady Brigitte Macron is all about Louis Vuitton and U.S. First Lady Melania Trump is nonpartisan in terms of designers.
As a sign of their global reach, the newly minted Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, topped Google’s 10 most-searched people list last year. For her first official tour, with Prince Harry last fall, to Australia, the American-born royal packed plenty of options for the 16-day trip. Occasionally changing twice in one day, the former “Suits” actress wore an assortment of Australian labels, as well as Brandon Maxwell, Jason Wu, Roksanda Ilincic, Stuart Weitzman, Manolo Blahnik, Gucci and Birks.
Before last spring’s royal wedding, it was estimated that the net present value to brands that Markle wears was 150 million pounds, or $ 212.1 million, according to David Haigh,

William, Kate, Harry and Meghan have a royal group chat and we want in

How can we join?

You’re probably not all that surprised to learn that these are the most popular royals. The top spots go to Prince Harry, the Queen herself, and Prince William – but don’t worry, Prince George got a place in the top ten, too (and well deserved, we might add).

So in light of the fact that Harry and William are fan faves, you’ll probably be interested to know that they are besties behind the scenes, too – despite what many of the headlines have suggested over the past few weeks.

The brothers are closer than ever, and they even keep in touch via a group chat. No, really. They’ve got a thread going on.

And as if we needed any more proof that the royals are just like us really, it turns out that the fab four use a family chat to keep up with each other. Apparently, William, Kate, Harry, and Meghan are ‘all on a family text chain,’ according to a source close to the royal family who spoke to Us Weekly.

What do you reckon they talk about? Do they communicate through memes and gifs and emojis? Do they share their thoughts on the latest episode of EastEnders? We need to know.

While it’s all very lovely and we can only imagine what royal lols go on in their private messages, we have one question – why isn’t the Queen invited to get in on the action? She’d be an absolute joker, we imagine. Have you read about her Christmas present rules?

The source also touched on recent reports that there is friction between the Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Sussex, quashing the rumours once and for all.

‘Kate is lovely. She’s British, she’s reserved. You have to break through that armour,’ they told the publication.

‘Kate doesn’t warm up to people too quickly. It takes some time for her to become comfortable and trusting for anyone in the outside world.’

So there you have it.

You have to see the make-up bag Meghan took on the royal tour

It’s GENIUS

Meghan Markle’s first royal tour with Prince Harry might be over, but that doesn’t mean we’re done talking about the outfits/cute moments/baby news. (In case you missed it, here’s why they chose to announce the pregnancy in Australia.)

When you’re packing for a trip as big as, say, an official tour of four countries, your luggage is a huge part of the organisation when it comes to managing clothes, hair, make-up, etc.

We’ve snuck a peek at the make-up bag Meghan took with her and boy, it is GOOD. But first, a little backstory.

By now we’re all aware that Meghan’s good friend and MUA Daniel Martin was behind her make-up look for the royal wedding back in May.

Martin has recently launched his own (dreamy) vanity case with fashion label Cuyana, and it’ll have you questioning everything you thought you knew about make-up storage. Spoiler alert: ‘I actually gave Meghan and Harry this bag before their trip,’ he revealed in a recent interview.

So, why do we keep wanging on about how great these bags are? We’ll let Martin explain in his own words.

‘A lot of girls I know carry bags that don’t fit their foundation. Or if it does, it’s laying on its side or it’s in a flimsy kind of case,’ he explained to Allure. ‘So I took my Dior Undercover Foundation, which is a pretty standard height for foundation, and measured it from that.

‘If the bottle could stand tall, then you could fit a lot more things into the bag. I wanted to create a bag that you could put your full face in, that’s foundation, concealer, bronzer or blush, a small eyeshadow quad, and lipsticks.’

The bags have a larger base to make sure things can stand up properly, a removable inside wallet and come in five different colours. But they’re not just great for make-up, they’re perfect for skincare and grooming products, too (hence why Harry also has one).

Buy now

‘For guys, our stuff tends to be a bit bigger, whether it’s a deodorant stick or a cleanser. So I really thought about how versatile this bag could be, regardless of what you want to put in it.

‘The most important thing, though, was that whatever you had inside could stand up.’ See what I mean? Genius.

The Vanity Sets retail for $ 110 but, good news, they ship to the UK. We’ll take ten, please.

Kate Middleton Is Royal Wedding Guest Chic (Again!) for Princess Eugenie’s Big Day

Once again, Kate Middleton is the epitome of wedding guest chic.

The royal mom arrived at the royal wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank on Friday, shortly after returning to royal duty after taking some time out of the public eye following the birth of her third child, Prince Louis, in April.

Kate wore a burgundy ensemble by her own wedding dress designer, Alexander McQueen, and a matching velvet beret by go-to milliner Philip Treacy.

She and Prince William quickly headed inside after being driven to the chapel door, taking their seats next to newlyweds Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. (The couple, who wed in 2011 and whose children George, 5, and Charlotte, 3, even snuck in some hand holding before the ceremony began!)

Kate, 36, returned to her royal duties following maternity leave on Oct. 2 when she visited the Sayers Croft Forest School and Wildlife Garden. She took a short two-mile drive from her home at Kensington Palace to a recreation ground in Paddington, London, to spend time with local school children and learn how getting their hands dirty in a wildlife garden and outdoor learning helps with their well-being.

The 36-year-old royal is set to take part in sporadic engagements during October and through to the end of the year. She will return to her usual busy schedule come January.

Despite her time off from work, Kate has had a busy wedding season. In addition to helping marshal Prince George, 5, and Princess Charlotte, 3, who served in the bridal party at the wedding of her longtime friend, Sophie Carter, last month, she was her usual stylish self to celebrate the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle less than a month after Louis’ arrival.

Despite her royal status, Princess Kate has developed a clever trick to avoid upstaging the bride on her big day: Pulling a royal rewear!

For Sophie’s September nuptials, Kate wore a cornflower blue Catherine Walker & Co coat dress, which she previously wore when she arrived in Berlin with Prince William and their two eldest children during their July 2017 tour of Poland and Germany.

At the May wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan, she appeared to pull an epic royal rewear with an off-white structured-collared coat dress. In July 2015, Kate wore a very similar piece to Princess Charlotte’s christening. She pulled out the ensemble again at the Queen’s official birthday celebrations, Trooping the Colour, in 2016.

Everything You Need to Know About the Next Royal Wedding

On Friday, Princess Eugenie marries her boyfriend, Jack Brooksbank, in a lavish ceremony at Windsor Castle. In the same chapel, just five months ago, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot, giving the British monarchy its greatest boost in a generation. This wedding is likely to have the opposite effect on royal poll ratings.

In many ways, the two ceremonies will be surprisingly similar: Harry had 800 guests, Eugenie is having 850. Harry invited 1,000 members of the public, selected by ballot, Eugenie is having 1,200. Harry and Meghan had a carriage ride through the streets of Windsor, Eugenie and Jack are having one too. Harry and Meghan had glorious weather; Eugenie and Jack no doubt want the same.

But some things will be very different.

Why Kate Middleton won’t accept gifts during royal visits

It’s pretty important

Words by Jadie Troy-Pryde

We’re pretty clued up when it comes to all things royal. From what goes on behind the scenes Buckingham Palace, to following protocol, we’d say we’re in the know when it comes to their very interesting secrets.

For example, did you know that the Queen has banned this ingredient from the royal kitchens? Or why Meghan Markle often wears black for official duties?

And then there’s the real reason that Prince William and Kate Middleton don’t hold hands in public, but Meghan and Prince Harry do.

But just when you thought you knew all there was to know, we’ve got another nugget of royal wisdom for you.

Kate Middleton won’t accept gifts from members of the public during royal visits.

Why?

REX

The Duchess of Cambridge recently returned to work five months after giving birth to her third child, Prince Louis. Earlier this week, she attended Sayers Croft Forest School and Wildlife Garden in Maida Vale, London, where she met local school children – and had the sweetest answer when one asked by one child why the photographers were taking snaps of her.

However, royal protocol states that when it comes to receiving presents things can get pretty complicated.

The Royal Family website reads: “Gifts offered by private individuals living in the UK not personally known to the Member of the Royal Family should be refused where there are concerns about the propriety or motives of the donor or the gift itself.”

Reportedly, the royals are only allowed to keep hold of gifts sent by the public if their value is less than £150, and items like flowers and certain foods are permitted.

According to the BBC, all gifts must be used by the Royal Family, used for displays, or given to charity or members of staff.

Just imagine the number of teddy bears they must have collected over the years…

Sexy, Classic, Surprising: Inside Meghan Markle’s Royal Wardrobe

Arthur Edwards/Getty

It took Meghan Markle only two seconds to close her own car door on Wednesday. But the moment of relatability left many Markle stans clutching their imitation Aquazzura pumps in celebration. Deal or No Deal-briefcase-girl-turned-royalty… they’re just like us! Except for, you know, the million-dollar wardrobe.

Before closing her own door, Markle had exited the her car in a long-sleeved, black Givenchy number that would come off a bit too Wednesday Addams save for a strategically placed skirt slit. For her first solo outing as a royal, Markle oozed the breezy confidence she’s known for.

Even before joining the royal family, Markle projected self-assuredness. She ran a site called The Tig, where she blogged about independence and living alone. In 2015, she penned an essay for Darling detailing how she found self-confidence as a young actress when a casting director told you, “You need to know that you’re enough.”
