People: Prince William and Kate Middleton are breaking taboos by talking about their emotions

People magazine has a new article about Prince William and Kate Middleton which lauds them as “starting a conversation about mental health”, “opening up in ways royals of previous generations never have”, and “taking on long-standing taboos about seeking help”. Which, sure, but… it’s been two days.

Is Prince William trying to set up his own ‘royal court’ by moving Princess Eugenie into KP?

The idea that Princess Eugenie will be moving into Ivy Cottage at Kensington Palace is still making news for some reason, and Tom Sykes over at the Daily Beast has written a think-piece about what Eugenie’s move means for Prince William and his “royal court” at KP.

DM: Kate Middleton thinks Prince Harry’s perfect wife is ‘fiercely academic’ with ‘no medical problems’

This ‘Harry and Kate have a super special bond’ article is several days old now, but I just got around to reading it. When I saw the title over the weekend, I rolled my eyes and ignored it since it seemed to be a rehash of an article from 3 years ago. But then I read it and laughed several times, rolled my eyes several times, and got very annoyed at one part. So I’m going to cover it now.

To Hug or Not To Hug: the difference between Prince William and Prince Harry

Because of how many eyerolls I did when reading it, I wasn’t going to cover Piers Morgan‘s new Daily Mail article in which he calls out Prince William for being an “unhappy, acutely self-conscious” person and says Prince Harry would make a much better King than William, but then I read a rebuttal to Morgan’s article from Victoria Arbiter and thought “girl no, that’s not the way to defend William’s lack of hug-giving”. So I’ve chosen to cover both articles because I think they are both wrong in ways and both right in ways.

Royal Round Up: Duchess Kate, ‘The Crown’ trailer, Norway royals, CP Victoria, Queen Letizia

While we continue to wait for Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, to make her first appearance of the year, Katie Nicholl has provided a nice PR piece for us to roll our eyes at. There’s also The Crown trailer to watch, which is causing a bit of eye rolling itself (in royal historians). King Harald is celebrating his Silver Jubilee; pregnant Crown Princess Victoria had her first engagement of 2016; and Queen Letizia continued to chug along at her engagements.

Two new appearances announced for Kate + bits and bobs from around the web

Last week I wanted to focus on the European royals having focused so heavily on the Royal Holy Trinity the two weeks before and then this weekend/Monday was all about Remembrance services, so I ended up not posting about an announced appearance and several articles about Prince William, Kate Middleton, and Prince Harry. Just the other day another Kate appearance was announced, and so I decided to do a round up of those announced appearances and those articles so that we could chat about them. Before that, though, I think a trip down memory lane is in order…

Royal Round Up: Prince William and Kate Middleton bits and bobs

This time of year is a slow period for all the royal families of Europe, as they are all on vacation (the the Swedes came back from vacation last week, which I’ll be covering later). The most interesting thing that has happened recently is the release of Kensington Palace’s letter about privacy and Kate missing a society wedding. Since it’s that time of year when the royals are absent, the press make due by writing about random stuff. So this post is a catch-all for some Cambridge related articles.

Royal Round Up: The British, Part 1

My series of upcoming Royal Round Ups will be slightly different from the normal weekly round ups. These will feature a mix of royals (or maybe just one) from specific countries, rather than a mix of royals from a mix of countries. Today’s round up features some British royals (no Sophie in this post, but she will feature heavily in part 2 of the Brits). We’ve got some Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton, post-birth articles (because those are still happening), some Prince Charles talking Princess Charlotte, some Prince Harry starting his New Zealand tour, the Queen inviting Princess Beatrice to an official event, and Zara Phillips Tindall supporting her crazy-pant-wearing husband Mike Tindall.
