Kate Middleton (and me) at the Olympics

Being an unapologetic Olympics lover, I’m really enjoying seeing Kate Middleton also getting into the Olympics!  Doesn’t it seem like she is at every event?  With a front row seat to most venues, she can be seen clapping, shouting, jumping, and even doing The Wave.  I can be seen doing these things too…only, I am in the so-called ‘comfort of my own home’.  My son is my spectator;  he retorts with pleas of “Oh MOM!”, along with a lot of eye-rolling.  Kids!

I love that Kate looks sporty, yet elegant.  Totally appropriate for a fashionable modern royal at sporting events.  Looking at her hands, her nails are clipped short and they are unpolished.  Just like mine.  I can’t stand long nails, or fingernail polish on myself.  I always wear toe polish, but fingers – never!

I love her long hair, and the fact that it tends to frizz.  Mine does too.

While Kate is actually there, at the London Olympics, I will be here.  Granted, I have a nine hour time delay (Thanks, NBC!), and watch from my humble home.  But both Kate and I know how to rock the enthusiasm – WOOOOOHOOOOO!  😀

    Marilyn, I agree completely. I have loved seeing all of the royals in the stands. And, like you, I have watched from afar, and equally enthusiastically!

    I have to say that women’s Beach Volleyball is one of my faves. I have a girl crush on Misty May and Kerri Walsh, they are just so cool and fab! I’m looking forward to (enthusiastically!!!) watching their game against Jen and April tonight!

    I have just subscribed to your blog (via interest in knitting) and enjoyed your comments on Kate at the Olympics. I like her, she’s very unassuming as a ‘royal’ but fits the bill perfectly. As a sportswoman she is entirely comfortable in sports clothes for this event and I’m sure that made everyone else feel comfortable and one with her on the day 🙂 . What a contrast to previous generations of Royals who ‘toffed up’ for the occasion (and maybe didn’t want to) .

    Hi Trish! I’m happy to have you follow my blog 🙂

    I am glad that Kate is now keeping a low profile during her early pregnancy. I too had extreme ‘morning sickness’ when I was pregnant and it is something I would not wish on my worst enemy!! Not worth trying to “put on a good face” just to make a public appearance. I know they used to trot Princess Diana out when she was also suffering the same fate, which was ghastly. Just rest and cook that royal progeny, Kate!
