Brilliant! Thanks, Queen, a few I didn't know here!

RhubarbIsEvil Sun 12-May-19 15:59:13

Thank you queen 👑!

TracyBeakerSoYeah Sun 12-May-19 16:06:22

Thanks Queen.
Archie's feet photo so cute. He looks like he's all arms & legs, bit like my DD was when she was born & she weighed 6lbs 12oz & is now an extremely tall & skinny teenager.

We'll have a Kate sighting on Tuesday as she's visiting Bletchley Park. I think one of her grandmothers worked as a code breaker during WWII?

Cute baby feet pic 👣

RhubarbIsEvil oh no that’s a shame sad The Mumsnet website is terrible at zooming in on pictures. These are closer up if it helps but I think I’m only allowed to post 6 pictures a day so this is just bit that’s more about Mrs Alice.

Kate really does wear sizes 5.5 and 6 @Myimaginarycathasfleas
See attached image (the sole reads 38.5)

I don't think she's 5'9". Her official height is a bit under 5'9" (about 174cm) but I think she's 5'8.5"-5'8", maybe even a smidge under. Look at photos of her next to Michelle Obama. Still tall though and with high heels 6 foot or so. The Weitzman Corkswoon heels she used to wear frequently are 4.5 inch wedges and also have a platform.

I'm about an inch or so taller than Kate and I wear size 7 - 8 shoe... her feet must be teeny tiny!

I love the baby feet pic! The first thing we noticed about our first born was how big his feet were....they were always too big for the babygros. He likes to tease me by wearing my slippers indoors so we have a chant "get your flippers out of my slippers"! grin

Feet are funny things, I wear a 7.5 and have shrunk to 5ft 5 from 5ft 6.5!

The text on the feet picture is in tribute to mothers, I suppose for US Mothers Day today. It's sweet, especially for those "remembered."

Thedarklady Sun 12-May-19 16:49:22

Meghan had Diana's favourite flowers (Forget Me Nots), in her bouquet and the flowers are also in the photo of baby Archie's feet.

queenofarles Sun 12-May-19 16:51:46

Oh poor Mrs Alice, I didn’t know she had complications with her third delivery.

I think Archie will heavily be featured on M&W insta page.

AudacityOfHope Sun 12-May-19 16:52:15

New thread already! shock

hopeishere Sun 12-May-19 16:53:55

Place marking.

floraloctopus Sun 12-May-19 16:54:50

Thanks Queen. I love the foot photo, I have similar ones of my three.

ajandjjmum Sun 12-May-19 16:57:56

Is that photo actually of Archie's feet, or just a generic Mother's Day image? Sorry - haven't seen the actual post.

UrsulaPandress Sun 12-May-19 17:02:06

Signing in.

SenecaFalls Sun 12-May-19 17:08:52

I think it's Archie. The manicure is the same one Meghan had on Wednesday.

BertrandRussell Sun 12-May-19 17:16:17

They certainly look like Meghan’s hands.

MotherofPearl Sun 12-May-19 17:21:43

Place marking. Have fallen behind a bit!

latedecember1963 Sun 12-May-19 17:27:28

Aww, the mention of mothers no longer around against a backdrop of forget me nots is a lovely touch.

Alwayscheerful Sun 12-May-19 17:41:47

Checking in

TSSDNCOP Sun 12-May-19 17:45:32

Checking in. Lovely photo, very thoughtful.

Do you think they'll just release Archie bit by bit then a big reveal at 18?

QueenOfTheAndals Sun 12-May-19 17:53:06

I'm sure the reports of him being hidden away are exaggerated. How much do we actually see of the Cambridge children? We'll probably see Archie about as much as we see them or the Phillips and Tindall girls.
