Welcome to my Royal Party

 “Hi, I’m Kate and welcome to my home.  Thanks for coming to my party today”.  A simple introduction for a simple girl.  However, Kate is no longer a simple girl.  Kate is now referred to as Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.  Kate now calls Buckingham Palace home and Kate no longer hosts parties. She hosts charity balls. 

Can you picture being the newest member of a royal family? Can you picture the expectations placed upon you when hosting an official function covered by media all around the globe? Not only am I talking about avoiding tripping over when you make your grand entrance. I’m talking about your dress, your hair, make-up, shoes, bag, how you get in and out of the car, the way you stand, the way you walk, how you mingle with guests, your welcoming speech, your closing speech.........gosh I’m tired already!

Yes, the world is watching when you’re a royal but how about we indulge for just a second.  Imagine being sent closets full of designer dresses to choose from.  Imagine having a selection of shoes that would make Carrie Bradshaw jealous.  I wouldn’t mind employing my own Personal Shopper to help me find the latest trends to add to my wardrobe.  How about I fly out my Personal Hairdresser to style my locks as I travel the world?  Anyway, back to reality. 

While you and I may love planning our parties, from the party decorations to the menu, the Duchess of Cambridge has far more important things to worry about.  Kate takes elocution and etiquette lessons to ensure her small talk at parties covers topics such as world events, the London weather and ‘who she’s wearing today’.  Wouldn’t it be embarrassing (and quite hilarious) if she accidentally let slip it was that time of the month and wished she was at home on the couch, wearing her trackies and watching a bunch of chick flicks? 

The deportment lessons she endures to ensure she walks like a model as she enters a room must have her thinking she’s been royally ripped off.  She receives the training of a model and practises her posture daily but no one is paying her to have her face splashed on the cover of glossy magazines.  As the saying goes, if Kate Middleton had a gold coin for every time she features on a front cover, she’d be giving Kate Moss a run for her money. 

The Duchess was certainly the party girl in her university years but now has to play grown up as she wines and dines society’s upper class and A-list celebrities.  While she must be careful with who she associates with, she also has prime access to superstars such as David and Victoria Beckham.  Soccer star eye candy?  Spice Girl designer dresses? Yes please!

Kate may still be getting used to her new British royalty label but perhaps our Australian born Princess Mary can give her some tips.  Mary has paved the way for so-called ‘commoners’ joining the royal ranks, and doesn’t she do it in style? Mary always looks stylish and elegant and every bit the princess.  If Mary and Kate can do it, there’s hope for us yet.  Even if we cannot become princess of a country, we can certainly become the ‘Princess of the Party’.  Sounds like fun, doesn’t it?  Well, I’m off to stalk Prince William (just kidding!) and will leave you to daydream about your next big party.

To help you plan your own party, visit Australia’s #1 party shop, Pink Frosting. You’ll find lots of royally appropriate party supplies all in the one place.
