Are the Middletons the new Millers? (Part 1)

This self-made couple have three offspring, all of whom date well.

What else the Middletons have in common with the Miller family, who took social world by storm starting in the 1990s when their daughters married a Getty, a crown prince of Greece, and a von Furstenberg?

SIBLINGS - the Miller Sister are all blonde whereas the Middleton Siblings are brunettes (Catherine, Philippa, James may have been well acquainted with beer bottles but not bleach bottles).)

To date, the Middleton 3 have only dated well but the Millers have married well. And in style. Eldest sister, Pia, wed Christopher Getty in Bali, a fact that the media were aware of only after middle sister Marie Chantal tied the knot with Prince Pavlos in London. That fed the expectations for the nuptials of youngest sister Alexandra in New York.

The latter two weddings and pre-ceremony celebrations captured the attention of media for their taste. These were not gaudy blowouts, but planned elegance that reflected how Chantal Miller raised her daughters.

Like the Miller 3, the Middleton 3 date "up" - but they hit the town with a Carnaby flavour. James was photographed in drag, Kate spreadeagled in rollerskate wear, and Pippa wearing the shortest skirts in the club. These are unimaginable in the minds of the European-educated Millers.

Bringing a dash of colour to the royal christening wintry Copenhagen, the Duchess of Castro and family

The Duchess of Castro and daughter accompanied her husband, Carlo, the Duke, to the royal Danish twins's christening as he is one of the godfathers. The Borbon-Dos Sicilias are popular with the royals all over, with Carlo serving the same function for the young Prince Gaston, son of the Duc et Duchesse de Vendome.

The Enneagram 1 former Camilla Crociani has always been a striking figure and she never lets her side down.
