‘Perhaps she will follow the fashion of the late monarch’: Kate fits the Queen’s style like a glove at Bafta awards
No one was more thrilled to see the Princess of Wales in black opera gloves at the Bafta awards on Sunday evening than best-selling crime author Peter James.
For the gloves were made by Cornelia James, the company founded by his late mother.
‘She looked terrific,’ the novelist tells me. ‘So stylish. Wonderful to see her wearing gloves — especially Cornelia James ones.’
James, 74, whose thrillers such as Dead Simple featuring Brighton-based Detective Superintendent Roy Grace are favourites of Queen Camilla, hopes that Catherine will now take a leaf out of Elizabeth’s book.
‘Perhaps she will follow in the fashion of the late Queen, who always wore gloves in public,’ he says.
Cornelia James began her lifelong association with the Royal Family when she was asked by dress designer Norman Hartnell to make the ‘going-away’ gloves for the then Princess Elizabeth to take on her honeymoon in 1947.
