The Queen’s finances have come under scrutiny. She has “just £1 million left in reserve” while the palaces are in dire need of repair. I’m not sure how best to cover this, so I’m going to post the entire articles from the Telegraph below (sorry in advance for the longness of the post). They give an […]
Our dearest Katie Middleton seems to have been the right royal actress in her youth. She was in a few plays in school, one we’ve known about for a while (where her character was told she’d marry someone rich), and now it’s come out that she played Eliza Doolittle in a production of My Fair […]

Kate attended church, twice, with the royal family this year. She wore a cream/pink coat with a pretty tartan scarf for the early service, and she wore the McQueen tartan coat dress for the later service. I love the McQueen coat, it is beautiful. I loved it the first time she wore it and I […]
