You know one interesting, and dare I say good, thing to come out of the Breakup of Prince Harry and Cressida Bonas? Daily Cressida pap walk photos! I’m not sure if she is still going to her job or not, but she has been papped almost every day since the news of the split broke. So she might be. It’s interesting that there was a report of her taking “compassionate leave” because she didn’t want to be photographed, and then the next time she gets photographed she’s looking the best I’ve ever seen her look, fashion-wise.
Take a look at the new photos. Cressida is wearing a black, figure-hugging dress with a black blazer. She carried a black, oversized bag, and wore sunglasses, that gold medallion necklace that I kind of love, and black boots (whose laces are coming undone). Her hair is down with a center part, but it looks brushed and sleek. She looks amazing. I think this is the best I’ve ever seen her look. Her style usually leaves a lot to be desired, but she looks great here.
For someone who is “heartbroken” and “does want to be photographed”, she sure put a lot of effort into this look. Maybe she finally got with the program and is “showing Harry what he’s missing” with the daily pap walks and nicer clothing—pulling a Waity, if you know what I mean. Or maybe she’s just over it and is all “look at how great I am; I don’t need a man.” Or she just had a meeting and needed to look nice. Either way, she looks pretty great.
Speaking of people with terrible style who’ve randomly pulled out a great outfit for a pap walk, Pippa Middleton was photographed leaving a gym. Pippa wore a pair of high-waisted black pants, a white blouse with ruffle detailing around the bustline, and a cream jacket. She carried two bags including a £750 tote—damn, that is an expensive bag to carry smelly gym clothes in. She also wore a pair of ratty, old flats. Ignoring the flats, she looks pretty nice. A great professional look. This is one of her better outfits; she usually has terrible style and wears ill-fitting clothes. Case in point this Suzannah dress she wore to a friend’s wedding on April 26—complete with nipple darts.
The article says Pippa spent two hours on the treadmill, and then went to work at Party Pieces. Does Pippa still work for her parents? I thought she quit that to do… whatever it is she does now. Also, does Party Pieces have a London office? I thought it was based out of Bucklebury. I bet the DM made up a place for her to go to make it look like she’s actually busy with “work”.
Has anyone heard of the new FOX show, I Want To Marry Harry? I know at least some commentators have since they’ve brought it up in the comments. Well, there is a new FOX show about a bunch of American
famewhores women who were duped into thinking they were on a reality dating show vying for a chance to marry Prince Harry—and I’m pretty sure the palace they used for filming is the same one they use on Downton Abbey, going off the glimpses in the promos. The “Harry” of course is not the real Harry, but a Prince Harry look-a-like. Sigh, those women are morons. Anyway, seeing as the real Prince Harry was in Memphis over the weekend, the fake “Harry” decided it would be a good idea to go to Memphis, too, and… screw with people? Make some money? Promote his show? I’m going with the last one. I’ll bet FOX even paid for this dude’s travel expenses. It’s excellent promotion for the show, and since it premieres later this month they’re going to be ramping up the promotion of it.
There is a story about Nanny Maria taking Prince George to a local park while in Wellington one afternoon while Will and Kate were in Christchurch. A man recognized them. Nanny Maria bought an ice cream cone and gave a little to George before letting him play with some peasant children in a public playground. There was a previous report that George only eats organic. That ice cream was not organic, send Nanny Maria to the Tower!
Prince William was spotted flying coach on an American Airlines flight from Memphis to Dallas. The press is now trying to make it a thing that he flew coach instead of first class or something. Yeah, it was an hour and a half domestic flight, coach isn’t a big deal. For the switch to the international flight back to London, he probably upgraded. Harry flew on an EasyJet back to London.
UPDATE: William has some new appearances scheduled. We already knew about the May 12 visit to the Royal Navy Submarine Museum. William will host a dinner on May 13 for the Royal Marsden Hospital at Windsor Castle. William will attend the FA Cup Final at Wembley on May 17. Wait, he’s watching a football match? How is that considered a royal duty?
Here’s a really dumb article about William possibly leapfrogging Charles to become Head of the Commonwealth. Part of the article is correct, the Head of the Commonwealth is not hereditary and theoretically when the Queen dies we could have a King Charles of the UK and someone else as Head of the Commonwealth. But then it goes to speculate whether it would be Will to become HotC. It says that people were complaining that Charles looked out of his depth when he stood in for the Queen at the Heads of Government Meeting last year. But why the heck would anyone think Will would do a better job? He has no experience whatsoever. Ugh, this crap is so stupid! /UPDATE
I wonder when we will see Kate again. She doesn’t have anything on the books officially, except a trip to Belgium on August 4th. We should be seeing her for Trooping of the Color on June 14th, but she’s not actually confirmed for that event. Order of the Garter is June 16th, but she’s not officially scheduled for that either. The royal reporters on twitter were claiming Kate would have a busy summer, but as of right now it doesn’t look like it. I’m just hoping she actually makes an appearance in May. Come out of your hidey-hole Katie; we won’t bite, I swear.
