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:

Kate Middleton’s lingerie: Did we really need to know?

Have you ever wondered what type of lingerie Kate Middleton wears?  Certainly not me, but I guess now we know.  Or at least that’s what this lingerie designer thinks.  This designer apparently sent Kate some free pieces and got a note back saying, “thank you for the thoughtful gift”.  I’m not sure what the standard response is to free gifts, but I’m pretty sure that’s it.  I am surprised that Kate, or Kate’s people, didn’t send the gift back.  Supposedly Kate is not allowed to take free samples, but is allowed to accept a nice discount (like 90% maybe?).  Anyway… This is another blatant attempt by a designer/website/etc. to link their name with Kate Middleton to generate press for themselves and draw in potential customers.  The thing is, though, is that Kate Middleton clearly isn’t a well-respected, married duchess who is about to give birth to her first child, or else a story about what type of lingerie she may or may not wear would never have been printed.  It says a lot that such a story would be printed about her.  Clearly she’s not the “wonderful savior of the monarchy/Diana 2.0” that everyone was hoping for.

Kate Middleton: world’s greatest style icon?

Before I begin, I would like to say that this seems like a plug for the website that carried out the “survey” rather than an actual consensus of what people in Britain think.  So it is not surprising that Kate Middleton just so happened to be at the top of a “most fashionable celebrity” list.  Not to mention put in the same category as iconic women like Princess Diana and Audrey Hepburn.  I would not be surprised if the woman who led this “survey” cooked the books to make sure the Daily Mail (DM) printed a story about it, the DM will do anything to make “Kate Middleton, the style icon” happen.  And they love nothing more than to put her name in the same article with Princess Diana.  So let’s take this one with a grain of salt, shall we.
