Kate Middleton is a moron: her skirt flew up AGAIN

You know what bugs me, when I read the headline for the Daily Mail’s article on Kate.  They said, “The Duchess of Cambridge has a Marilyn moment!”  And I’m thinking here’s how the headline should read:  Kate Middleton has a Marilyn moment… for the SIXTH TIME!  At least the Mail recognizes that this is not the first time Kate has pulled this stunt; and also mentions the fact that the Queen weights her hems to avoid these types of embarrassing situations, but Kate does not.  They said:  “It’s not the first time that Kate has suffered a close call with her outfit – unlike the Queen who weighs her hemlines down with lead curtain weights.”  Look, I’ve seen the video, I understand that it was extremely windy, but she’s a Duchess and this has happened six times:  weight your bloody hems!

Kate steps out for 100 Women in Hedge Fund’s Gala

Kate attended the 100 Women in Hedge Funds gala on Thursday… and then went shopping on Friday.  First of all, it bugs me that Kate attends the 100WHF gala every year since she really does not belong anywhere near any accomplished woman ever, since she threw her life away for a ring.  She has done nothing of merit with her life, yet she gets fawned all over and treated as something special, like she deserves to be in the same room as women who are banking executives at major institutions and directors of multimedia business groups.  Having said that… Kate kind of has a reason to be there this year; the 100WHF is raising money for Action on Addiction, one of Kate’s charities.  Of course, this type of gala event is the only way to get Kate to do anything for her charities, because all Kate wants to do is get dressed up and play princess without actually having to do any work.  The gala was held in the state apartments in Kensington Palace, so Kate didn’t have to go very far to get there.

Pippa reveals a school-girl crush, shades her mom & Kate’s sports record in new article

Here’s another Pippa post.  Pippa wrote an article for Spectator in which she reveals how she had a crush on her hockey coach, Mr. Markham (I’ll get back to this in a bit).  The article is all about how many sports Pips played as a kid, and she seems to have played a ton of sports in school.  She mentions cross-country being “compulsory”, not sure if all the sports were compulsory or if it was just that one, but it seems odd.  I’ve never been to a school where extracurricular sports were mandatory; PE, yes, but after school sports?  Seems odd to me, but I did not attend some fancy private school in Britain.

Kate is still insisting she doesn’t have a nanny, and other news

I’ve been dealing with personal stuff the last week and a half, and have ignored the royal BS PR machine during that time.  But now I’m back to it and as disappointed as ever.  Basically I’m catching up on some of the stories from the last week and a half, or so.

The Cambridges left the hospital

The new Prince of Cambridge was born only on Monday, but there is a ton of baby coverage and articles surrounding every little thing.  Like, seriously, there are eight articles on the Daily Mail website just from today.  It’s ridiculous.  I don’t even want to bother reading it all, at least not tonight, too annoying.  I just want to cover the major thing that happened today (or yesterday, technically, since it’s after midnight).  The Cambridges went home from the hospital, giving the press their money shot that they’ve been waiting outside the Lindo Wing all this month for.  Go here for a picture of the family; here for a sweet picture of William holding his son; and here and here for close-ups of the baby.  It looks like he does have some dark hairs already, so cute.  I’m going to give the baby the benefit of the doubt, since he is only a baby and he didn’t ask to be born, whom to be born to, or what he looks like.  Until he does something worth criticizing him for, I’m going to leave him alone.  But that won’t stop me from criticizing his parents.  Just because they had a baby does not absolve them of their sins.

Beatrice and Eugenie’s Style Transformation: The right way to PR campaign

There is a new article about Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie in the Daily Mail.  It is all about how they have turned into really great young ladies over the last few years and are ready to take on real roles, as members of the royal family and in the real-world work force.  It’s a nice piece of PR.  Clearly it is designed to make them look good and make the public like them.  Well, it worked for me.  For now.  I will have to follow them into the future and see how they handle things and see where their careers take them to see if they really are serious about being working women, but for now I will give them a chance.  It seems like there are a lot of people behind the scenes that want these two to be taken seriously as royals, to no longer be the butt of jokes in the press, and to not be pushed out by Charles.  Just from this one article, these two girls seem much better than Kate or William, or Harry for that matter.

Pippa has no style: Finally the Daily Mail is catching on

Oh my gawd!  The Daily Mail has an article up all about Pippa’s awful style sense.  I have thought for a long time that Pippa had no taste in clothes and didn’t know how to put an outfit together, but the DM continually lauded her dress sense and tried to push on us that Pips was some huge fashion girl.  Well not anymore.  This article completely trashes Pippa’s style.  It’s amazing!  There are some great quips in there, but this quote just sums up her whole style perfectly:
