Last year, Prince William revealed that his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge was a fan of adult colouring books. It would now seem the page has turned and the Duchess is the focus of the popular pastime.
Historic Royal Palaces, the charity which runs Kensington Palace and Hampton Court Palace to name a few, has released a colouring book ‘Colour In Kate’ featuring 31 pages of some of Kate’s most memorial moments.
The £5.99 book self-describes itself: ‘Colour in Kate, a modern style icon. From beautiful ball gowns and formal dresses to casually chic outfits – complete these stunning scenes and add colour to Kate’s wonderful wardrobe.’
You can colour the Duchess throughout her engagements from her grass skirt wearing dance in Tuvalu and the Soloman Islands, dressed in a cowboy hat in Canada, and sipping tea at The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
Prince William even makes an appearance alongside the Duchess, looking very youthful in Honiara, Solomon Islands.
A spokesperson for Historic Royal Palaces said: “We stock a wide variety of products for all ages in our palace shops and online. Our range celebrates the history of the palaces in our care and the public lives of their royal residents.”
The colouring book, published by Buster Books, is capitalising on people’s want for a “digital detox” as Johanna Basford (author of the Secret Garden colouring books) put it when talking about Kate’s love of the art.
Back in November, Basford took a trip to Buckingham Palace to receive her OBE, which she also revealed that she found inspiration for her newest book which is “funnily enough” set in a castle. “I love all the really ornate picture frames and all the beautiful sculptures, and the candelabras are just stunning.”
“I’m sure little snippets of today will feature in the book.”
