Beauty therapist presented as Kate Middleton’s beautician has never worked for her

During a segment on This Morning this week, Deborah Mitchell was introduced as “the beauty therapist to Camilla and the Duchess of Cambridge.”

The esthetician said that she uses various types of treatments and, contrary to what is expected, one of these is within the reach of most of us.

Mitchell surprised the audience by revealing that her secret is a Nutella face mask, and while she didn’t specify whether she has used it on Kate, she did mention applying the treatment on one client with “really good skin.” [via Marie Claire UK]

According to Mitchell, chocolate contains substances such as palm oil moisturizer which makes the skin moist and smooth.

However, according to the Daily Mail, Kensington Palace has denied that the Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, is one of Deborah Mitchell’s clients.

In addition, Mitchell herself denied to MailOnline having any connection with Kate: “I have never claimed the Duchess of Cambridge has been a client.”

“I have treated royalty all over the world, I have treated a lot of celebrities and a lot of celebrities use my products. I like to keep my customers’ confidentiality,” she explained.

Kate Middleton themed café opens in Australia

Prince William’s wife has inspired a café in Melbourne, Australia, with an interior as elegant as the Duchess of Cambridge.

The café opened last year in September and its owner, Randy Dhamanhuri, has made no secret of who his muse was.

“She’s undoubtedly royal but has this humble persona,” Dhamanhuri told People. “I think she’s the definition of timeless beauty and class in this modern age. Not just speaking of her look, but more so on how she carries herself in public.”

The name of the café, Middletown, is a play on the word “Middleton” which is Catherine’s maiden name.

The walls are painted in royal blue, inspired by the color of Kate’s sapphire ring, previously worn by Princess Diana.

Good morning! Start Friday happy hour with a round of coffee at Middletown! Cheers! #middletownau

Kate Middleton talks about honesty and kindness during school visit

Monday marked the beginning of Children’s Mental Health Week and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge celebrated the occasion by visiting Mitchell Brook Primary School in north west London.

The pair met staff and primary school children in an attempt to promote their campaign, Heads Together.

The Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, who looked lovely in a red suit by Luisa Spagnoli, gave a speech about mental health.

“People often ask me why I am so interested in the mental health of children and young people,” she said. “The answer is quite simple – it is because I think that every child should have the best possible start in life. When I was growing up I was very lucky. My family was the most important thing to me. They provided me with somewhere safe to grow and learn, and I know I was fortunate not to have been confronted by serious adversity at a young age.”

She continued: “For some children, maybe there are some here today; I know that life can sometimes feel difficult and full of challenges. I think that every child should have people around them to show them love, and to show them kindness, and nurture them as they grow. This is what Place2Be is doing so amazingly here in your school.”

“If we are worried, upset, lonely or angry – the best thing to do is to talk to someone about it” the Duchess said. “Whether that is your mother or father, a teacher or a friend. I know that in your school you have been working on a project to spread a little kindness and I think this is such an important thing to do. If you see someone who you think might need help, try and be kind to them. Keep a look out for them if they are on their own or seem sad or worried. Perhaps they just need a hug or someone to talk to. I know it is hard if you are feeling down yourself. But helping someone out will also make you feel so much better too.”

Catherine ended her speech by drawing on her own experience on the matter with her children, George and Charlotte.

She said: “My parents taught me about the importance of qualities like kindness, respect, and honesty, and I realise how central, values like these have been to me throughout my life. That is why William and I want to teach our little children, George and Charlotte just how important these things are as they grow up. In my view it is just as important as excelling at maths or sport.”

Kate also awarded the first “Kindness Cup” to the child who “has shown exceptional kindness in their school community and beyond”.

Kate Middleton not banned from BAFTA Awards despite reports

The most important British film awards will be held in London on February 12 and Kensington Palace confirmed last month that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, will be the guests of honor at the ceremony.

However, according to a report by The Sun, organizers are worried that Duchess Kate’s presence could overshadow the celebrities taking part in the event.

In addition, Prince William, who has been President of the Academy since February 2010, has been criticized for having skipped the last two awards ceremonies.

Faced with the controversy, BAFTA organizers issued a statement to deny the rumors.

“For clarity—this is nonsense. As we confirmed last night it’s completely untrue that BAFTA has suggested that our President attend on his own.We would be delighted to welcome Their Royal Highnesses any year that they are able to attend,” a spokesperson told Harper’s BAZAAR UK.

The prince will also present the BAFTA Fellowship Award in recognition of exceptional contribution to the arts.

Actresses Emily Blunt, Emma Stone and Naomie Harris are expected to show up at the event.

According to Hello! magazine, Catherine will be surrounded by hundreds of young men in uniform, namely air cadets from the Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire Wing Air Training Corps, currently participating in a half-term skills development camp.

A statement from the Palace said: “The week acts as an initial ‘camp experience’ for cadets who are in their first six months of membership. Her Royal Highness will join the cadets as they view a Tutor aircraft, and participate in a personal development training session.”

Over a year ago, the mother-of-two became Royal Patron and Honorary Air Commandant of the Air Cadet Organisation.

Perhaps the couple will get the chance for celebration in April when they will be marking their sixth wedding anniversary.
