Kate and William Coming to NYC!

This 2012 picture of William and Kate still makes me smile.

I read over at Duchess Kate, my favorite site for all things about Kate and William, that they are visiting New York City next month, whee! You can read their exact itinerary in Charlotte’s terrific post.

I have to say that I am so glad they will be trucking out to Brooklyn and not just keeping the royal party limited to Manhattan. They are going to attend a basketball game between the Brooklyn Nets and the Cleveland Cavaliers at the Barclays Center, which is about 10 minutes away from my apartment. I am not into basketball so I will not be there but I feel quite certain if William and Kate appear on the Jumbotron they will receive a rousing welcome from everybody in da house that night! I know Brooklyn will show them a good time!

William and Kate will catch some basketball at the Barclays Center, close to where I live!

I do hope Kate gets a chance to do a bit of shopping at Bergdorf, Barneys, and Saks, as well as see the stunning window displays and the tree at Rockefeller Center. The city is so beautiful in December, all decked out for the holidays. She and William are in for a visual treat!

I also hope Kate will wear some lace at the gala she will attend at the Met. The above Temperley dress she wore back in 2012 (and then again in 2013, good for her!) is probably my favorite evening look of hers. I hope she selects something similar for her night at the Met. I loved this black lace gown she wore when she attended the Royal Variety Performance on November 13, 2014. I never get tired of lace!

If you are in NYC, let me know if you are going to try to get a glimpse of William and Kate at any of their official events. I think they will be a big hit in the Big Apple!

They are far and away my fav young couple and Kate can do no wrong in my eyes.
Now what about George?

Jill said...

Hi GSL, I have not heard whether George is accompanying them. It sounded like he wasn't just from the wording over at Duchess Kate, but maybe they are bringing their boy. I hope so. They should visit NYC as a family! XO, Jill

Thanks so much for giving me a heads-up about William & Kate's visit to NYC in Dec. I am so excited & hope I can get a glimpse of them. If I do, I will let you know right away.


Jill said...

Hi Deja and Pam, I don't think I will get to see them in person but I will definitely be watching all the local news coverage! XO, Jill

Jill said...

Hi Mom! Oh yes, if you come up we are going to see the holidays windows! It would be fun to catch a glimpse of W&K wouldn't it? I bet it will be the most fun when they are in Brooklyn! XO, Jill

Hi Rosie! I think it's so great they are coming to NYC and they are coming at the best time of the year, don't you think? You MUST let me know if you see them in person. That would be so exciting! XO, Jill
