Alexa Chung Took Her Daddy To Meet The Duchess Of Cambridge, Complete With Cute Insta-Story

Mr Chung was suited and booted to meet our future Queen


What did you get your Dad for Christmas, or his last Birthday?

A big-ass history book that he can cover his face with whilst he naps?

A flat-cap to hide his receding hairline?

We know your game, we do exactly the same thing.

Well, Alexa Chung just made us all look really bad because she took her dad to The National Portrait Gallery to meet the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton.

Yeah, makes those garden clippers you got him last year look pretty rubbish, doesn't it?


Alexa was chairing the Annual Portrait Gala wearing this amazing off-the-shoulder Loewe dress and accessorised with none other than Phil Chung, her daddy.

Phil himself is a painter, he creates bespoke house portraits, according to his Instagram.

Also according to Phil's Instagram, he thinks his daughter is 'beautiful' (duh) and may have been the one who introduced HRH to her, not the other way around.


Kate looked her usual gorgeous self in a floor-length Temperley London gown.

But between Kate and Alexa, we think it's Phil who truly stole the show. A rose between two thorns, you could say.

On Alexa's Instagram Stories last night, Alexa filmed her dad in the car, prepping him to meet the Duchess, and asking what he was going to say to the future Queen.

When he ummed and aaah'd, she verbally rapped his knuckles, warning him not to talk to her at all, saying, 'no you're going to say sorry I'm mute and I can't speak.'

Because even if you're Alexa Chung, your dad is still cringe.

Seemingly after the event, she filmed him again, he told her, 'I certainly did talk to her...we spoke about children's paintings, and how she should collect all her children's paintings.'

Can we get a collective 'aaawwwwwwww'?

Not only do we want Alexa's wardrobe and boyf, we want her dad too.
