Kate Middleton Went Grocery Shopping in an Old Pink Coat

— Yep, We'll Just Leave That Out There
http://sd.uploads.ru/t/R6n8G.jpg
We have some pretty crazy news for you: Kate Middleton went grocery shopping just days before giving birth to her third child. She packed bags into her Range Rover at the Waitrose supermarket in Norfolk, England, and, well, who even knew she didn't get help with such an activity on the regular? We aren't surprised one bit that Kate looked polished as usual, opting for black skinny jeans, suede heeled booties (our go-to weekend shoe, of course), and a pink, double-breasted Joseph coat that she formerly wore for Cheltenham Gold Cup Day in 2013.

We know — the idea of the duchess waiting in line at checkout, separating her items from the person's in front of her with one of those divider bars, is, well, a little too much to handle, but her outfit shouldn't be. In fact, we are perfectly inspired to scoop up some pastel outerwear just like Kate's to ring in Spring. Join us, won't you?

What Did Kate Middleton Do Before Becoming a Royal?

http://sa.uploads.ru/t/U7dPM.jpg
For most of us, Kate Middleton came into our lives officially when her engagement to Prince William was announced back in October 2010. When the couple married in April 2011, the world was introduced to the woman we now know as the duchess of Cambridge, a wife, humanitarian, mother of two, and of course, future queen. With all the information we've gotten about Kate's duties as duchess, we started thinking about what her life was like before she was thrust into the spotlight as a global icon. Sure, in a lot of ways she's changed since getting married (who hasn't?), but we have to believe that underneath her title, she's still the same old Kate.

Here's what her royal highness was up to before she became a member of Britain's most famous family.

Working Girl

After graduating from the University of St. Andrews in Fife, Scotland, Kate accepted a position as an accessory buyer with British retailer Jigsaw. The chain's founder, Belle Robinson, has since revealed details about what Kate was like as an employee: "I was so impressed by her," she told The Standard in 2008. "She sat in the kitchen at lunchtime and chatted with everyone from the van drivers to the accounts girls. She wasn't precious."

In November 2007, Kate decided to leave Jigsaw and began working as a photographer, website designer, and marketing officer for her parents' event planning company, Party Pieces. The following year she launched a junior brand to the firm called First Birthdays, and continued to work with her family until January 2011, just months before she married William.

Sister, Sister

Postcollege, Kate moved into a flat on Old Church Street in London's exclusive Chelsea neighborhood with her sister Pippa; their parents, Carole and Michael Middleton, purchased the apartment in 2002 for all three of their children to live in. Pippa continued to reside there with their brother James well after Kate married Will and moved to a four-bedroom farmhouse on the Welsh island of Anglesey. Pippa recently moved out of the apartment to live nearby in a house with her fiancée, James Matthews.

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Kate was just like any other young woman finding her footing after college: she went out for drinks with friends at London hotspots like Boujis, Mahiki, and Bunga Bunga; danced the night away at clubs, parties, and festivals; and attended high-profile events like book signings, charity events, and Wimbledon (she's still a fixture in the stands to this day). Kate would lunch at the Bluebird cafe around the corner from her Chelsea flat, shop at Marks & Spencer and Waitrose supermarkets, and ride her bike around town for exercise.

Standing by Her Man

Keep in mind that throughout this whole time, Kate was still dating Prince William — and had become something of a paparazzi darling since leaving the safe haven of their college campus. On her 25th birthday, Kate opened the front door of her flat to find over 30 photographers and local TV crews as she walked to her car. William wasn't happy about this, and Clarence House released a statement saying, "Prince William wants more than anything for the paparazzi to stop harassing her." It's a move that his younger brother Prince Harry recently took when it came to the harassment of his own girlfriend, actress Meghan Markle, and her family.

Despite the constant public attention, Kate dutifully attended William's polo matches and was by his side at the wedding of Camilla's daughter, Laura Parker Bowles, as well as the Princess Diana Memorial Concert that he and Harry threw in 2007. That year, the royal couple hit a rough patch and decided to part ways; they reunited in the Summer of 2010, and during a vacation in Kenya in October 2010, Prince William put a (very special) ring on it.

6 Jobs That Probably Won’t Be Around in 10 Years

Whether you’re trying to figure out a career path tailored to your abilities, or just curious of the kinds of jobs that society is slowly fading out, Boss Girl has the rundown on the 6 jobs that probably won’t be around in 10 years time. Technology and cultural shifts have given rise to new careers while slowly making others disappear. Read on to find out which 6 jobs are going obsolete, and why you should avoid them!


Retail Cashier

http://sg.uploads.ru/t/Ua63g.jpg
With the influx of self-service checkouts, and automated processes during purchasing, the typical retail cashier will eventually fade away as a career. Technology has allowed plenty of advancements in how we shop, and customers are wanting less human interaction.


Telemarketer

http://sa.uploads.ru/t/Y2oKt.jpg
Nowadays, people don’t use the phone as much as they used to.
With other more efficient ways of communicating – such as email or texting.
Old fashioned telemarketing is slowly becoming a job of the past. With email marketing on the rise, these once common jobs will no longer be found.

Travel Agent

http://s9.uploads.ru/t/y2nf1.jpg
With the rise of the internet and the ability to book trips for cheap using sites comparable to travel agents, this old-school job is slowly fading out of the system.  Gone are the days where we need a third party person to find the better deals when travelling, because the internet has made that ability so much easier for us.

Taxi  driver

http://sd.uploads.ru/t/emfq7.jpg

Ride sharing apps have created a new normal for the way the average person acquires transportation.  Calling for a cab is going to be non-existent with the rise of apps with GPS technology. Taxi drivers will have to follow the trend in order to keep their business afloat.

Publishers and Printers
http://s4.uploads.ru/t/eDY9T.jpg

It’s no surprise that print media is fading out of the industry. More and more consumers are going digital when it comes to entertainment and news. Publishing companies have been having a hard time keeping up with the times. These industries are slowly fading out to give rise to new digital media companies.

Postal Workers
http://sa.uploads.ru/t/3yxYf.jpg

With the rise of technology and email communication, the need for postal workers has slowly been dwindling away.
With the rise of private companies taking the Post Office’s place, this government-run job has little chance for career growth and advancement.

Activism Made Her Far More Than a Film Star

http://sd.uploads.ru/t/CjUp5.jpg

When you hear the name Elizabeth Taylor, your mind is likely flooded with images of Old Hollywood glamour, showstopping red carpet gowns, killer hats, and over-the-top diamonds. You may even picture her striking violet-covered eyes, or think back on her most memorable movie roles or equally memorable marriages (she had one or two). But all of these things pale in comparison to Elizabeth Taylor's fearless dedication to activism, especially her work raising awareness about HIV/AIDS. While Elizabeth's life came to an end in March 2011, her charitable spirit and passion for helping others lives on through members of her family.

Naomi deLuce Wilding is one of them. An accomplished fashion director, stylist, art gallerist, and activist, Naomi just so happens to have one of the most famous women in the world as her grandmother. She and her sister, Laela, are the daughters of Michael Wilding Jr., Elizabeth Taylor's first son with English actor Michael Wilding. The two were married from 1952 to 1957.

http://sh.uploads.ru/t/05mlZ.jpg

Naomi grew up in the Wales countryside but visited her famous grandmother in Los Angeles twice a year. She moved to LA full-time in 2000 and currently serves as an ambassador for the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation, which the actress established in 1991 to provide grants for programs that offer direct-care services to those living with HIV and AIDS. Back then, there was still such a harmful stigma around the disease that Elizabeth's closeness to the community was seen as being quite radical (see also: Princess Diana boldly shaking the hand of a dying AIDS patient without wearing protective gloves).

By the time Naomi really got to know her grandmother, she had moved on from her acting career and was primarily dedicating her time (and platform) to philanthropy. Even today, ETAF's ongoing mission is to support marginalized communities and fund HIV education and advocacy programs around the world; the foundation boasts a number of celebrity ambassadors including Colin Farrell, Whoopi Goldberg, Zac Posen, and Paris Jackson, whose father, the late Michael Jackson, had a close friendship with Elizabeth. Along with the AIDS research nonprofit amfAR, which she cofounded in 1985, Elizabeth's efforts are still recognized and celebrated around the world.

Naomi spoke to POPSUGAR about her grandmother's incredible commitment to helping others and how their family plans to continue her legacy. She also opened up about the Hollywood icon's private side and mused about the causes she might support if she were here today.

POPSUGAR: Your grandmother's dedication to philanthropy, especially when it came to the fight against HIV and AIDS, was pretty legendary for her to tackle at the time. In what ways do you most hope to carry on her legacy of activism?

Naomi Wilding: It's difficult to walk in her shoes — she was uniquely able to do what she did because of her visibility. As a family, we're really conscious of the fact that by joining forces, we send a very strong message of being inspired by her activism. We are moved by her passion for HIV and AIDS in particular. I think what's also very relevant now, and the reason she chose this particular cause, is that she recognized immediately that it was an issue of discrimination and stigma; that it was ultimately a social justice issue. And that's why she was uniquely positioned to fight this fight.

In the years that have passed since then, we've developed many medical advances and we're armed with so much more to fight the battle against HIV and AIDS. And once again, we're looking at this stigma that's holding us back. Stigma, and again, social justice issues such as poverty and racism that are keeping us from reaching an AIDS-free generation. Conversation, education, and sharing this message is very important right now. We're amazingly positioned in the world at the moment, I think, to really bring about great change.

[ETAF] just came back from advocating on Capitol Hill and talking to our elected representatives for AIDSWatch advocacy day. There's so much happening in the world right now; it's all so inspiring. I think that we really are in a time of compassion and change, of being aware of and compassionate for our fellow human beings. All of these different areas of activism that are happening right now all feed each other. It's sort of an extraordinary place to be. And so, the lobbying on the Hill makes you feel that, as much as it's kind of a strange place in politics right now, it also feels full of hope.

PS: Do you think there was a defining moment for her when it came to HIV and AIDS when she said, "Enough is enough; I'm going to use my position to call attention to this?" When did a switch go off?

NW: She had a large gay following, and I think she saw that HIV and AIDS affected the gay community very strongly. It became an opportunity to discriminate, and that completely incensed her; discrimination incensed her in general. She saw that people chose not to act because this was a disease that affected the gay community. As things progressed and the virus spread rampantly . . . you look at the population of people who are most affected by HIV around the world, and they're the people who need the help the most. It's in poorer communities around the world; in transgender communities; and among women and men of color in this country. It ties in with so many other areas of social injustice around the world. And it completely was a switch for her.

http://s7.uploads.ru/t/CkTVG.jpg

PS: In addition to HIV and AIDS awareness, what other social justice causes do you think your grandmother would support if she were alive today?

NW: Gosh, so many. With the women's movement that's happening right now, I find myself thinking about her so much. She advocated so much for women, women's freedom, women's rights, and for women to be uncompromised. She was an uncompromising person, and she felt that all humans should be given the freedom to make choices for themselves. So much of what has come to light in the entertainment industry is not just sexual harassment, but the ways in which we've inhibited women's freedom. I think she would have used her voice loud and clear in support of younger women who felt inhibited.

PS: Elizabeth was also the first leading actress to earn $1 million dollars on a film after she negotiated her own contract for Cleopatra. On the topic of the #MeToo and Time's Up movements, what advice do you think she would have for female actors today when it comes to knowing their worth and fighting for equal pay?

NW: I think she was in a very unique position at that point in her career. She knew her worth, but she also wasn't bound by a sense of needing to move up in her career. As women, we're so caught up in this idea of doing and saying what's expected of [us], and my grandmother never did or said what was expected of her [laughter]. She did what she thought was right for her. And that's certainly a lesson that she gave to those of us in her family. By example, she taught that message to other women, too. She had a pretty "f*ck you" attitude about things — that really, really kept her in good stead, and I think we could all learn a lot from that.

PS: I just love thinking about speeches she would be giving today or the advice or knowledge she would be passing on to women who are trying to do some of the same things she did.

NW: I think that she would be a mentor if she were alive today. I've seen her with young actors. I think that she really enjoyed taking people under her wing and providing emotional support. She also just loved the crisis [laughter]. She loved that sense of rising to the occasion and being the mother that anybody might need.

PS: I think there are certain thoughts that come to mind when you hear Elizabeth Taylor's name, but what's something you wish the world knew about your grandmother?

NW: I feel like people knew her pretty well [laughter]. She lived such a public life, and I think people really did have a pretty good idea of who she was. Again, I think she was uncompromising. And when you look at the life that she led, privately and publicly, that to me is the message that comes across the strongest. People also knew that she was an incredibly loving human being, loving to her family. And her battle for those who were suffering with HIV and AIDS also gave insight to how loving she was, and that the idea of universal compassion and justice was a driving force for her. Those are the things that made up who she was in the strongest way possible, and I think most people are really aware of that.

Paris

http://s3.uploads.ru/t/XUp4D.jpg
Paris! The city of Light and Love. There’s just so much here that it’s hard for anyone visiting to get disappointed. Boasting of amazing culture, food, architecture and fashion, Paris is truly a dream destination for any if not all tourists.

If truth be told, there are plenty of attractions in Paris and a lot is still hidden because of its rich history. You will find some of the most famous museums (get a Paris museum Pass for unlimited museum visits), the iconic city center that is full of history and one of the most interesting nightlife scenery you will find in the world.

A tour in Paris will provide you with lessons in beauty, history and you’ll probably understand why life should be enjoyed. The streets of Paris are full of art and history. From Monet’s Water lillies to the Eiffel Tower, one is simply filled with so much awe!

Paris is a very diverse city. There’s so much that goes on here that some tourists normally get culture shock when they visit.

Favorite Earrings Are $20

http://sa.uploads.ru/t/ZgyC0.jpg

If you had any doubts that Queen Letizia of Spain likes to save money when it comes to her wardrobe, you won't after this. The royal, who is photographed in the same outfit often and sometimes in the same month, recently skipped fancy diamonds and real jewels for a pair of $20 Zara earrings.

While we were distracted staring at her gorgeous crocodile suit and now-signature deep-blue eyeliner at her visit to El Prado Museum with husband King Felipe VI, the queen was really making a statement with her dropper earrings, featuring sapphire-inspired gemstones and a rusted metal branch design with flower-shaped amber touches. Are you now determined to steal her look? Scroll ahead to shop the earrings.

How women's 'perfect' body types changed throughout history

http://sa.uploads.ru/t/MBV1U.jpg

How do we determine what makes a person beautiful?

Though it might seem like the standards of beauty we have today must be historically universal, really the opposite is true.
The "perfect" body has greatly changed over the years, even though the foundation of the female form has stayed the same.

So, next time you feel like your own body might be less than perfect, just remember that "perfection" is an ephemeral ideal, bound to change and transform — looking stunningly different from one generation to the next.

Kate Middleton's sophisticated style hasn't changed too much since she became a royal. Year after year, she still opts for go-to designers such as Catherine Walker and Alexander McQueen. She won't trade in her Gianvito Rossi pumps (or Penelope Chilvers boots) for anything. And, she'll continue to recycle her maternity looks as she has throughout her third pregnancy.

Kate's expected to give birth in April and will likely disappear from the public eye to care for her new child.

The year is hardly over by any means, but she's already worn some pretty memorable looks. Click through to see our absolute favorites.
