Brits all over are bracing up for a warm summer of revelry, kick-starting with Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee bank holiday weekend.
In the midst of this national celebration, one person who is said to be super thrilled about the events which will be taking place during the first weekend in June is none other than Duchess Catherine, the former.

This is not a recent fascination rather it goes back to her childhood when she and girls her age would have Take That as their ultimate pin ups.
In 2007 when there was a Take That performance at a concert dedicated to the memory of, Kate Middleton and then boyfriend Prince William were seen singing in chorus to Back for Good. Clearly the group Take That holds a warm place in both William and Kate’s heart.
In fact, last December, when Duchess Kate attended Gary Barlow’s charity concert at the Royal Albert Hall, Kate was thrilled to bits almost like a school girl to meet her music idol Gary Barlow. When Gary enquired politely to Kate and Wills: "I hope you enjoy tonight and I hope it's not too loud." Like a true music fan William quipped: "The louder the better, the louder the better."
