There has been some confusion/controversy over Kate Middleton’s official title in the last few days. It all started when Clarence House released an image of Prince George’s birth certificate and under “mother’s occupation” it said, “Princess of the United Kingdom”. After this was made public, the media pounced on the “princess” reference. They made a huge deal about Kate being called a princess, and a lot of reporters and fans were saying it is now okay to call Kate, Princess Kate. Of course the rational, non-sycophants were very unhappy with this and pushed against those saying Kate is a princess and that it’s okay to call her Princess Kate by saying that Kate is not a princess but rather a duchess, since she was bestowed the title Duchess of Cambridge upon her marriage. I would like to clarify things a bit:

Camilla did an engagement in Cornwall and while revealing a plague to commemorate her visit, said, “We are all just waiting by the telephone. We are hopeful that by the end of the week he or she will be here.” All the press outlets are jumping on that saying that the baby will definitely be here by the end of the week. I want to point out that she said HOPEFUL, they are HOPEFUL that the baby will be here by the end of the week; not that it for sure will be here by the end of the week. Goodness, people, get a grip. Seriously, the #GreatKateWait (someone started that hashtag on Twitter and I think it’s funny, it really is fitting) is getting to these reporters. Or is it the heat in London outside the #LimboWing (another Twitter hashtag that is funny and oh so appropriate)?

Prince Charles loves Doctor Who, who knew
Charles and Camilla went to the set of Doctor Who in Cardiff, Wales and took a tour. I am a huge Doctor Who fan. That’s something Prince Charles and I apparently have in common. Charles has been a Doctor Who fan since he was a teenager—that’s when Doctor Who first came on the air, it’s celebrating its 50th anniversary this year with a huge special in November, hence the royal visit. That’s why I’m linking this, because I love Doctor Who and am terribly envious of their visit, and it is nice to see Charles actually smile and mean it in the photos in this article. I know a lot of people don’t like Charles, but I don’t think he’s as horrible a person as he’s been made out to be. He has his faults (a lot of them), but I do think he would make a relatively good king (at least he would make a much better king than William).
