Peter Phillips charging £150/person for street party for Queen’s 90th b-day + Prince Harry partying (update)

I keep hoping there will be news about Kate, William, or Harry scheduling appearances for January, but nothing has been released so far. Seeing as KP usually releases appearance info two weeks before the appearance, and there is just over two weeks left in January, it’s looking doubtful that any of them will make any appearances this month. In the meantime, we’ll keep ourselves busy with other royal news and events. For today, here’s an interview with the Queen‘s oldest grandchild, Peter Phillips, about the street party in celebration of HM’s 90th birthday. Also, Prince Harry was spotted out partying.

2015 in Review: Biggest royal happenings

As we wind down 2015 and look forward to 2016, I thought it would be fun to look back at the biggest royal happenings of the year. This year seemed to be all about the Brits and the Swedes with several big events from both families, though there were big events from other families as well. There were multiple births, multiple christenings, multiple weddings, multiple pregnancy announcements, and some big birthdays, among other things.

We’ve also got Princess Charlene giving an interview, Queen Mathilde rocking rug shorts, and the Swedes on summer vacation. Also we’re celebrating a birthday from Norway.

Kate Middleton gives quote to the Times about children’s mental health

Kate Middleton gave a quote to the Times (London) about children’s mental health in support of their Time to Mind children’s mental health campaign. This comes six weeks after she released a video message in support of Place2Be’s Children’s Mental Health Week… and mere hours before the UK supreme court ruled to allow Prince Charles‘ letters to the government to be made public.

William, Kate and George received lots of wine and books as official gifts in 2014

The annual lists of gifts received by members of the British Royal Family were released. While the Queen and other members of the royal family release info on gifts received in the UK, Prince Charles, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince George, and Prince Harry only release info on gifts received during official overseas visits. I’m only going to cover the Cambridges and Harry’s gifts. Overall, Will and Kate got a lot of alcohol, but also a lot of books. Kate received a lot of jewelry we’ll probably never see her wear. George received a crap ton of books and toys. Harry didn’t get as many gifts as Will and Kate, but his are more interesting and diverse, I think, including an automatic rifle (decommissioned of course).
