Previous thread. I think we'll be a bit short of royal outfits as they're all off on their holidays atm. But Kate's regatta is coming up next week, hence the thread title!

Same rules as always - keep it light, critique the clothes rather than the women, and don't believe anything printed in the Daily Mail grin

Definitely less controversial than Vogue in the title.
Looking forward thé the Cambridges Coordinating nautical outfits!

Thanks for the new thread Queen.👍

For anyone who's interested, Pippa Middleton is a weekend fitness writer for Waitrose magazine, this week writing about buggy running with baby Arthur. It's a thing apparently. Who knew?

Pippa does write well, I’ll give her that.

wine @QueenOfTheAndals

@Myimaginarycathasfleas it's all the rage in my city! Fitness buggies are a 'thing' and heavily debated among friends with small babies still. I imagine Pippa would have an excellent range of buggies, and fitness wear for jogging around the local parks!

It's been a thing for a while hasn't it? I remember Tom and Nicole popularising running with buggies back in the 90s. It was when the 3 wheeled ones came on the market.

I believe Will n Kate are up in Norfolk at the mo. I guess they spend all school holidays in the UK up there.

Checking in. Thanks for the new thread Queen.

Checking in but still on holiday with dodgy signal! Need to find and catch up on the last thread, but hope everyone is well!

I'm so pleased someone mentioned Suited and Booted, it's a very well run charity and does well at getting people interview ready. They go into prisons (which I think SmartWorks) does too and supply men with plain black polo shirts, hi-vis jackets etc as well as passing on suits, ties etc.

I will be wearing heeled espadrilles this weekend as I want shoes I can wear on grass which will give me a little height. Oh I hope that isn't too outing wink.

Are fitness buggies not already a thing in the UK? For years and years now I have run the risk of being flattened by them when I venture forth on foot.

They are fantastic - I actually had one myself in the late 90s. The big wheels bounce right over cracks in the pavement and over twigs, pebbles, etc. and they're easy to pull up and push down steps. They steer really well.

Thanks Queen.

Thank you for the new thread. I rarely have much to contribute but do love reading the discussion.

* Are fitness buggies not already a thing in the UK?*

Apparently they are! Things have changed a bit since I had my DC.grin
In my own defence, in my quiet corner of the world they aren't much in evidence!

Thank you QueenoftheAndals for the new thread.

I had a running buggy in 1998 and ran races with DD1 in it. There have been classes for mothers with babies in them for years. Very odd. It had proper tyres you could inflate and a brake and wrist strap.
