Since 1980, the Prince has altered the house, adding decorative touches tothe exterior and making other changes, such as building a function suite in thegrounds where he can hold meetings and other events.But perhaps the biggest changes have been in the gardens. They have beenredeveloped, with Prince Charles doing a lot of the planting himself. From therose garden to the kitchen garden, Highgrove is now widely admired and famousworldwide. A major part of the attraction of visiting Highgrove is, as every yummy mummy knows, the chance to visit the shop. Here you will
nd all manner of royally-appointed goods to purchase and show off to your friends with, fromonion marmalade and champagne to a
at cap and a check 
ask with “mini nipcups”. Priceless. You can only visit Highgrove’s gardens and need to book well in advance forthe compulsory tour. Highgrove House, Doughton, Tetbury, Gloucestershire.

WHEN ONE’S NOT AT HOME:TRAVELING WITH KATEAND WILLS
Obviously, the royals really don’t need to go hunting on www.lastminute.com to
nd a decent holiday—with palaces dotted around the UK and many a royalfriend to lend their yacht out for a couple of weeks. But sometimes then bluebloods just like to do their own thing.
Kenya
Certainly, Prince William was looking for somewhere quiet and away from mediascrutiny when he decided to take Kate to a remote part of Kenya last October. Itwas here that he popped the question, beside Lake Alice, whilst staying at a moun-tain lodge at Rutundu. Apparently, they’d just been for a stroll and caught rainbowtrout for dinner. After cooking it over an open
re, Wills asked the big question.This spot is very much a favorite with those in the know and a few bob inthe bank. In other words, you won’t
nd it in a cut-price holiday brochure. Youhave to helicopter in and out but the beauty of the surroundings make it wellworthwhile, particularly if you’re into horse-riding,
shing or walking.
Klosters
Ah, we remember that
rst kiss well. It was on the snowy slopes of Klosters, inthe middle of Graubunden region south east of Zurich. Any Brit who has read anewspaper in the last 30 years will know Klosters, a favorite with royals who ski,as it seems to feature in the media on an annual basis. It’s less glitzy than the likesof San Moritz or Val d’Isere and its appeal is its village atmosphere, which hastraditionally attracted couples and families.Klosters is dotted with arts and crafts galleries and shops selling snow gearso if Kate wanted to do a little light clothes shopping her best bet is nearby 
Davos,
which is lined with around 100 shops selling everything from hip aprèsski out
ts to cowbells (well, the grannie-in-law might like them).The destination is well known for its abundance of upmarket restaurants,however, and our royal lovebirds have been spotted in plenty of them, notable thehistoric and well-heeled
Chesa Grischuna.

Ibiza
Let’s not forget that Kate and Wills are still only young, so why shouldn’t they want to head for the party island of Ibiza? The couple spent time with a gaggle of friends including Kate’s sister Pippa at a rented villa in a secluded part of theisland a couple of years ago,
nding time to rent a very expensive looking yachtfor a day trip.Ibiza, with its super-clubs, cool DJ sets, achingly hip cocktail bars and sun-soaked beaches needs no introduction, of course, although we can safely say Kateand Wills did not take to a podium in Manumission. Their holiday was rathermore tasteful, Kate’s white stringy bikini being the most risqué part of the trip.
SHOP LIKE KATE
Let’s start with where Kate got that sapphire blue dress that she dazzled theworld with the day she and Wills announced their engagement.It’s designed by Daniella Issa Helayel, who works out of a studio in westLondon but sells her creations through various upmarket department stores,namely 
Harrods
(www.harrods.com),
Harvey Nichols
(www.harveynichols.com),
Fenwick 
(www.fenwick.co.uk), and Matches (www.matchesfashion.com). And the price? A very reasonable (by royal standards) £399.Kate, a former assistant accessories buyer at the Jigsaw retail, has also beenknown to pop in at
Katherine Hooker,
19 Ashburnham Road, Kensington,SW10 (
&
 
020/7352-5091;
http://katherinehooker.com) to check out thedesigner’s coats and jackets. A recent little tailored jacket she sported can befound in the store and the average price tag for outerwear is around £450.Our Kate is also known for her soft spot for
Temperley London
(www.temperleylondon.com). She wore the label’s Titan dress at the royal couple’s
rstpublic engagement, a Teenage Cancer Trust Christmas event.But the future Queen is no fashion label victim. She is just as likely to visitUK high street staples
Kew
(www.kew-online.com),
 Whistles
(www.whistles.co.uk), and
LK Bennett
(www.lkbennett.com) to put together an out
t for aroyal engagement. And, according to many a frenzied US report, her fave storeacross the Pond is none other than theAmerican equivalent of TK Maxxbecause she enjoys rolling her sleevesup and scrumming for the best looks atknockdown prices. Now if that doesn’tendear her to you then we don’t knowwhat will.And, of course, a girl can’t spendall this time getting her look just rightwithout paying attention to her hair.Kate’s locks are lovingly attended toevery six weeks by
