Rebecca Deacon getting married, dumping Kate

I’m fairly annoyed that KP hasn’t announced any more engagements for Kate Middleton for March, other than the ones we already know: a Service of Dedication on March 9, and the Paris trip on March 17-18 (whose itinerary has still not been released). The lineup for Commonwealth Day was released and neither William nor Kate is attending (although Harry is), and there is still no word on whether the Cambs will show up to the Irish Guards Parade on St. Patrick’s Day. Kate did a surprising number of engagements in January and February of this year, more than any other year she’s been a royal, but I guess we’re back to the same old routine. Boring. Anyway, there is news regarding Kate’s right-hand woman, Rebecca Deacon. Deacon is leaving Kate’s service after five years.

Pick your favorite royal (POLL)

I had a suggestion a couple months ago about a poll idea: favorite royal. I’ve been sitting on that idea for a while because things got busy and I didn’t end up doing that poll, but I thought I’d revisit the idea because I think it would be a fun poll just in general, but it would also be a great way for me to know which royals you guys like the most and which ones I should cover the most. So here are several polls for you to pick which royal is your favorite.
