Princess Eugenie took a break from her new role at a London art gallery today as she joined racegoers for Glorious Goodwood ladies' day.

The 25-year-old royal was accompanied by her long-term partner Jack Brooksbank for what turned out to be an unexpectedly windy third day of the famous event.

The young princess opted for less flamboyant wardrobe choice to some of her fellow racegoers, with a above-the-knee white dress and complimentary Nerida Fraiman asymmetric hat complete with a stone-coloured jacket. Click link for full post from The Daily Mail.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte's Playground at Highgrove

Prince Charles has made a playground for his grandchildren 

PRINCE Charles has turned part of his garden at Highgrove into a playground for his grandchildren with an £18,000 shepherd's hut and a rebuilt treehouse.

The 15 acres of ornate inter-connected organic gardens have been his passion, pride and joy since he began transforming them shortly after moving into Highgrove House, near Tetbury in Gloucestershire, in 1980.

But the arrival of Prince George just over two years ago, followed by Princess Charlotte in May, has brought new additions to the garden and given Charles the pleasure of seeing his grandson at play.

Vera Bradley Designs, Inc.In amongst the cottage gardens, ornamental walled kitchen garden, sundial garden and other horticultural delights, there was always space for his sons, Princes William and Harry, to learn to play and take risks climbing into the old treehouse, accessed via a rope and trapdoor.

Charlotte is too young to appreciate it all yet but George has also been introduced to the wooden shepherd's hut, a gift to Charles on his grandson's first birthday. Click link for full post from EXPRESS.

A Treehouse Fit for a King! Prince George's Own Treehouse at Highgrove

According to well-placed royal sources, the future king regularly enjoys picnics in the gardens with George and has even bought him a tea set, complete with plastic cups, to play with.

The little prince, who is third in line to the throne, is said to be particularly taken with the spectacular treehouse his grandfather had built for William and Harry.

MZ WallaceHidden away in an area of the garden known as The Stumpery (so-called because there are layers upon layers of old tree stumps and logs) it was designed by William Bertram for the then five and three-year-old princes.

Mr Bertram asked to interview the boys about what they wanted and William told him: ‘I want it to be as high as possible so I can get away from everyone and I want a rope ladder which I can pull up so no-one can get at me.’

The treehouse – named Hollyrood House after the Queen’s palace in Scotland, but also because it was originally built in a holly bush – was finally installed just in time for William’s seventh birthday in 1989.

Charles has owned Highgrove House since 1980, having bought it from Maurice Macmillan, a Conservative MP and son of the former Prime Minister Harold Macmillan  Click link for full post from The Daily Mail.

Kate's Favourite Desiger for Prince George's Clothes is Rachel Riley

Caption: Inspiration: Designer Rachel Riley says she has been inspired by how Princess Diana dressed the princes when they were little 

The clean lines and simple prints are from a bygone era, but the sales – not to mention her extraordinary influence – are a very modern phenomenon.

A favourite of the Duchess of Cambridge, designer Rachel Riley has transformed the children’s clothing market as middle-class shoppers rush to dress their tots like Prince George.

Sole SocietyWhen the Prince wore Riley’s white shirt and red shorts to his sister’s christening three weeks ago, the £85 ensemble sold out within hours.  Click link for full post from The Daily Mail.

Kate Makes First Public Appearance Since Birth of Princess Charlotte

Accolade: Sir Ben Ainslie chats to a smartly-dressed Kate after the presentation

Torrential rain and high winds may have caused today's scheduled America's Cup race to be called off but it didn't dampen the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's spirits.

Keen sailors Kate and William - who appeared to take their famously strong partnership a step further by stepping out in matching navy fleeces, printed with their royal titles - headed to Portsmouth to meet with Olympic gold medallist Sir Ben Ainslie and his crew.

Although the sailing was cancelled just an hour after the pair's arrival due to 'extreme weather', their royal highnesses were far from short of things to do.

Kate tried her hand at a virtual reality sailing game and was presented with tiny team tops for Prince George and Princess Charlotte with their names on by sisters Ella Morgan, 13, and Millie Morgan, 11.
