William to take six weeks paternity leave; Kate photographed with George again

First, let’s give a big Happy Birthday to the Queen who is 89 yrs old today. Happy Birthday, Your Majesty.

Now for royal baby stuff. Prince William and Kate Middleton are now finally at Kensington Palace ahead of the birth of their second child, having spent much of their time at Anmer Hall and last weekend at Middleton Manor in Bucklebury. Coincidentally, KP revealed this morning that William will basically be taking six weeks paternity leave (though he will do a few engagements in May) after completing the latest stage of his air ambulance pilot training.

Queen Margrethe’s 75th birthday gala dinner: night one

Last night, April 15, Queen Margrethe held a Gala Dinner at Christiansborg Palace in Copenhagen, Denmark. This was the first of two gala dinners this week in celebration of Margrethe’s 75th birthday. The second dinner is tonight, on her actual birthday. The first gala was attended by many monarchs (and their spouses) from across Europe. No one from the British Royal Family was there. The gala was a white tie event with tiaras and orders.

Kate Middleton doesn’t know if baby is a boy or a girl, will take summer off – KP says

Do you remember when I thought Kate Middleton‘s statement to the Times was a PR diversion to take the heat off of the court ruling on Prince Charles‘ “black spider memos”? Some of you suggested it wasn’t a diversion but rather Prince William and Kate’s attempt at stealing the spotlight from Charles because they want to make Charles look bad – especially since Kate’s statement made her look good and Charles’ court ruling made him look bad. I think I’m on that train now. Because today, April 9, is Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall‘s 10th wedding anniversary, and today of all days Kensington Palace decided to hold a briefing for journalists on the plan for the birth of the new royal baby.

I know you guys asked for more Sophie, and I heard you, but she didn’t do any public engagements this past week. Her next engagement is scheduled for the 21st.

Kate Middleton pitted against Princess Diana, called an uneventful dresser by Margaret Atwood

Margaret Atwood became the latest in a line of women to publicly call out Kate Middleton when Atwood claimed Kate is an “uneventful” dresser in a talk Atwood gave last month at the Victoria and Albert Museum. Unfortunately for everyone, Atwood invoked the name of the late Princess Diana to make her case against Kate.
