William abandoned Kate and George for a hunting trip to Scotland

Prince William is such a dedicated husband and father, you guys. His wife, Kate Middleton, is ill with hyperemesis gravidarum while pregnant with their second child, and he’s such a gentleman that he rushed home from work that one time to take care of her. He would never leave his sick wife and 1 year old son to trot off some number of miles to Scotland to go hunting… oh, wait. William was spotted in Scotland at the Balmoral estate on September 13 and 14. Clearly William thought he could slip away for a fun Scotland weekend while all eyes were on Prince Harry and the Invictus Games.

Duchess Kate drops out of Invictus events

Sorry to spam you guys, but thought I’d post an update on Kate’s Invictus appearances. Kate Middleton was scheduled to attend the Invictus Games opening ceremony tonight, and an athletics event tomorrow. Kensington Palace announced this morning that she is dropping out of both. Malta is still up in the air and will be decided on closer to the time.

Kensington Palace said: “The Duchess of Cambridge will not attend the opening ceremony of the Invictus Games this evening or the athletics event tomorrow. The Duchess’s attendance on the forthcoming visit to Malta will be kept under review and a decision taken closer to the time.”

Swedish Royals: Silvia, Madeleine and Victoria step out for Childhood’s anniversary dinner

The unexpected news of Kate Middleton’s second pregnancy has overshadowed at lot, and will continue to dominate the press until the new royal sprog is born next April (seriously, the press will find any and all reasons to talk about the royal baby, including telling us what HG is even though they did that already with the last pregnancy–and do we really need other women’s accounts of it, Daily Mail? Or other women’s accounts of dealing with two kids under two? I don’t think so). Now that I’ve gotten completely sidetracked… This post is about the Swedish royals, because I won’t let them be forgotten just because Kate decided to get knocked up again.

The World Childhood Foundation celebrated it’s 15th anniversary yesterday, September 9, and Queen Silvia (the founder), Princess Madeleine and husband Chris O’Neill, and Crown Princess Victoria and husband Prince Daniel attended the gala dinner in honor of the anniversary. Queen Silvia and Princess Madeleine were busy September 8 as well when both attended the third International Council meeting held at the Royal Palace–where they discussed issues common to the four sister foundations in Sweden, USA, Brazil, and Germany.

William and Harry comment on Kate’s second pregnancy + other info

Royal Baby Mania 2.0 is officially in full swing. Odds-makers have it at 50/50 it’s going to be a boy or a girl. Do you want to see something that’s actually pretty interesting? Go here for Trendsmap’s mapping of Twitter’s response to the news of Kate Middleton’s second pregnancy. I don’t know why I think that’s cool, but I do. Anyway, this post is an update with Prince William talking about Kate during his trip to Oxford, as well as Prince Harry’s response to the news during his Invictus Games appearance (poor Harry/Invictus Games getting overshadowed by Royal Baby Mania 2.0). There is other info from “sources” to get to also.

Pippa Middleton at the GQ Men of the Year Awards

Anyone want a Pippa Middleton update? I haven’t covered Pippa in a long time. Pips was on hand at the GQ Men of the Year Awards to present the Innovator of the Year award to Ewan Venters. So random, right? Why would they choose Pippa to be a presenter? Anyway, Pippa sat next to Conde Nast International President Nicholas Coleridge. Nico Jackson wasn’t there. I usually call Nico the Male Waity, but I guess he decided to stop Waity-ing and got a new job in Switzerland a few months ago. Who knows whats going on with that relationship. I wonder if Pippa got paid to show up to this event. I mean, her book bombed, she was fired from her part-time article writing gigs, what does she do to make money?

Two candid Cambridge sightings in two days: Will and Kate on a wet-haired dinner date in Norfolk, arriving back in London

Prince William and Kate Middleton enjoyed a dinner out last Thursday, August 28. There are pictures–I wonder if they’ll complain. They didn’t make a peep for the recent pics of Kate walking George in the park with her bodyguard (note: Popsugar says it’s Kate’s friend, but that is incorrect, that woman is Kate’s bodyguard and has been since at least the wedding–you can see her getting out of the car as Kate arrives to the church), even though they’ve complained many times before. There are also pictures of Will and Kate (and Lupo!) arriving back in London from Norfolk on Friday, August 29.

Lupo (Will and Kate’s dog) the subject of a new children’s book: name dropping to make a quick buck?

Lupo and George

Someone wrote a children’s book featuring Lupo–William and Kate’s Cocker Spaniel. The news that there was a book coming out based on Lupo was released a while ago, but I don’t think I ever covered it. Well I’m going to cover it now, because the author has a new interview/profile in the Daily Mail (go here for the article) that caught my eye.
