Kate Middleton and Prince William engagement interview (and words to use to sound as posh as the Royals)
Mr and Mrs Wales was absolutely titillated by a fascinating blog today from Royal Engagement interviewer, Tom Bradby.
Quite hilarious to hear that he originally asked Kate Middleton whether she chose her engagement ring (d’oh, it was of course, as well as know now, Diana’s); and that after the interview was over, Kate squealed, “I’m so bad at this!”
It’s actually all a bit of a coup that Tom Bradby was allowed to do the Royal interview, given he works for ITV News rather than the BBC, but it seems that he and Prince William have been friends for a while. William trusts Tom and felt he was the best man (no pun intended) for the job.
There’s a weird segue (in case you were wondering, segue is that funny word that is actually pronounced “seg-way”, like the posh man’s name “St John” which is pronounced “SinJin” – use both as much as you can as it makes you sound terribly, terribly knowledgeable and quite frankly as posh as a royal!).
Anyway, aside from that segue into the British language (did you like that?), there’s a weird segue into, and I quote, “how Kate gets her glossy hair”. I presume this part of the article wasn’t written by Tom Bradby, as I can’t for a moment imagine that as Political editor, he’d be interested in writing about Kate’s hair care regime. He’s bald for one thing. That’s the Daily Mail for you.
Anyway, for the record, Kate Middleton uses Kerastase shampoo and conditioner (for dry hair). Funnily enough, in the lead up to my wedding I splashed out on a bottle of Kerastase’s clarifying shampoo (or “Bain Divalent” as the Royals call it) and it is very, very good. It comes highly recommended, and the Corgis love it on their goldy, goldy locks.
Skinwise, apparently she uses Karin Herzog’s (bet she’s really called Karen Harris, but tries to make herself sound all posh – she should call her son StJohn while she’s at it), Karen Herzog’s Vita-A-Kombi 1, which I haven’t tried, but if they send me a tub I’ll happily try it out. If it’ll make my skin looks as rosy, rosy beautiful as Kate’s, then bring it on.
