Kate’s $130 bargain outfit as Harry feud continues

Kate Middleton gifted schoolchildren with a pot of honey produced by her own bees at Anmer Hall, in Norfolk.The Duchess was shown around the Urban Nature Project by Dr Doug Gurr, the director of the National History Museum.Dressed casually, Kate wore an affordable pair of Veja sneakers – a brand also worn by Meghan Markle – made from organic, eco-minded materialsVogue reports that Middleton sported Veja’s Esplar leather and suede trainers, teamed with a pink Chloé blazer, a white Ralph Lauren top, and blue jeans.She asked the students from St Mary of the Angels Primary School in London if they knew where bees got their nectar from.Kate then asked: “Would you like to try some? I’ve got one spoon each. This came specially from my beehive.“See if it tastes the same as at home. Does it taste like honey from the shops? Does it taste like flowers?”The duchess asked the children if they knew how many species of bees there were in this country, telling them: “It’s 350, isn’t that amazing?”“Every time you see a bee, say ‘thank you so much’ because they make delicious honey.”The duchess took the honey as a gift for the children to highlight the museum’s project about biodiversity.Her appearance at the museum came after claims that Kate and William did not meet with Prince Harry after Prince Philip’s funeral over fears the conversations would be “leaked”.The brothers will see each other for the first time since their grandfather’s funeral in April for the unveiling for the Princess Diana memorial on July 1.Prince Harry could return to the UK in the next 24 hours so he can self-isolate ahead of the event.The tribute takes place on what would have been his mother’s 60th birthday but the Duke of Sussex will need to quarantine beforehand due to Covid travel rules.DIANA’S FINAL MOMENTS REVEALED A fire chief who was one of the first to help Princess Diana after her fatal road crash in Paris has spoken for the first time of how she turned to him and asked, “Oh my God, what’s happened?”Sgt. Xavier Gourmelon told the Daily Mail that when he arrived at the devastating crash scene in August 1997, Diana was still “moving and talking.”“She spoke in English and said, ‘Oh my God, what’s happened?’ I could understand that, so I tried to calm her. I held her hand,” said Sgt Gourmelon, who gave statements to police but has never before spoken to the press.Only after he helped load Diana into an ambulance did he find out who she was from a captain at the scene. “He tells me who she is and then, yes, I recognise her, but in the moment I didn’t,” he told the outlet.That was also true for the very first person to try to help her, off-duty doctor Frederic Mailliez, who stumbled across the crash scene while driving home from a party.He first helped Diana, who was “sitting on the floor in the back” of the Mercedes.“I discovered then she was a most beautiful woman and she didn’t have any (serious) injuries to her face. She was not bleeding (then) but she was almost unconscious and was having difficulty breathing,” he said. “She looked fine for the first minutes,” he recalled.“So I began to speak English to her, saying that I was a doctor and that the ambulance was on its way and everything is going to be all right,” he said.He left as soon as emergency workers took over. “And so I left the scene without knowing who I had been treating,” he told the Mail.WHY WILLS, KATE ARE SILENT Prince William and Kate Middleton did not formally discuss their rift with Harry after Prince Philip’s funeral because they feared details of their conversations would be leaked, a royal historian claims.Robert Lacey, a historical consultant for Netflix’s The Crown, said the Cambridges avoided a private confrontation as family anger “ran deep” during the emotional service at Windsor in April, The Sun reports.William and Harry were seen briefly chatting with each other as they left their grandfather’s funeral service earlier this year.It was reported at the time that the brothers then spoke for two hours afterwards – alongside their father, Charles – in their first meeting since Harry’s bombshell Oprah interview.But according to Mr Lacey, that conference didn’t happen – with Charles said to have gone straight back to Wales and Kate and William returning home to put their children to bed.In an updated edition of his book Battle of Brothers, serialised in The Times, the author says: “They told friends that they could see no point in talking to Harry, since any discussion of substance would go straight back to Meghan to be leaked out via Oprah [Winfrey] or some other tentacle of the Sussex network.”The Cambridges’ alleged fears came after Meghan’s friend Gayle King sensationally let slip that Harry had had “unproductive” talks with his brother and father after his Oprah interview. She told CBS news at the time: “Well, I did actually call them to see how they are feeling, it’s true, Harry has talked to his brother and his father, too.“The word I was given was, those conversations were not productive. But they are glad they at least started a conversation.”And experts have since said the royals will now be extra-cautious with what they say to Harry.Royal author Phil Dampier previously told The Sun: “One of Charles and Williams’ big fears is that whatever discussions they have with Harry are immediately leaked.“They will be worried that if they get into any great detail, the next thing they know it will be out in the public domain, which makes it extremely difficult to heal the wounds long-term.”Royal commentator Angela Levin said in the days after Philip’s funeral that any private conversations with the couple would appear on social media or in the press “in no time”.“I think the Royal Family would be crazy to talk to Meghan and Harry,” she said.“In no time it would be out in magazines and on social media.”
