Zara Phillips plans on NHS birth and no nannies

Zara Phillips is due to give birth in January. Her due date is January 14—but according to this Daily Express “exclusive” article she feels like she could give birth at any time.  What I love is that she is planning a simple birth in an NHS hospital in Gloucester—the same hospital where Peter’s wife gave birth to their two daughters—instead of going with a super expensive, private hospital.  What I also love is that Zara totally plans to get back to her career as soon as possible and will take the baby on the eventing circuit with her—just like Anne did with her children.  People were complaining, or criticizing her when she announced that she would continue riding and get back into showing as soon as possible (back when she announced the pregnancy), but I love her for that.  There is no reason for her to give up her career just because she has a baby.  And I doubt she’s planning on taking a ridiculous amount of maternity leave, either (side-eye to Kate Middleton).

Princess Michael, part 1: “Princess Pushy” or not so bad?

Princess Michael of Kent has given a new interview to Tatler magazine, and there is a story about it with some excerpts in the Daily Mail.  She is surprisingly candid for a royal.  Being a royal, I would expect her not to talk about other royals, especially William, Kate and Harry.  There is nothing too revealing, but she did mention them and talk about their houses at Kensington Palace.

Royal Variety Show with Charles, Camilla, and Jesse J’s top

I want to talk about the Royal Variety Show that happened.  Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall attended the event, and they greeted the performers after the show.  I am not going to list any of the performers aside from the one I want to discuss, if you care to read more about the show go here for the Daily Mail article.  Before I get into the criticism, I want to say something nice:  Camilla looked lovely.  She wore a “specially-commissioned midnight blue evening gown by Vivienne Westwood.”  I think she looks great, and I love her jewelry.  If there is one thing I really love about Camilla… girl loves her jewelry.  And I love royal jewelry, and she gives me the jewelry p0rn that I crave from any and all royal outings.  So yay!
