Tara Palmer-Tomkinson & the Royals

British socialite Tara Palmer-Tomkinson has been friends with several members of the British royal family for many, many years, and yesterday, February 8, she was found dead in her home. Prince Charles has issued a statement about her passing. I had no idea how close Palmer-Tomkinson was to the royals, so I thought it might be interesting to explore a bit.

Thoughts on ‘The Crown’ on Netflix

I want to reiterate, because I think it’s important right now, not to be cruel to each other – on here, on other sites, in life in general. Please, let’s be better than that. With that said, here’s a hopefully feel good post I wrote a few days ago.

Have you guys been watching The Crown on Netflix? I’ve watched the entire series and I quite like it, but no one I know has seen the show so I have no one to talk about it with. And since it is royal related, I thought I’d talk about it here for the hell of it.

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.

Royal Round Up: Duchess Kate, ‘The Crown’ trailer, Norway royals, CP Victoria, Queen Letizia

While we continue to wait for Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, to make her first appearance of the year, Katie Nicholl has provided a nice PR piece for us to roll our eyes at. There’s also The Crown trailer to watch, which is causing a bit of eye rolling itself (in royal historians). King Harald is celebrating his Silver Jubilee; pregnant Crown Princess Victoria had her first engagement of 2016; and Queen Letizia continued to chug along at her engagements.

Hot Guy (and Girl) of the Month – December: The King and Queen of Bhutan

I got a request to cover the Queen of Bhutan due to the fact that she announced her first pregnancy recently, so I thought I would take the Hot Gut of the Month series – where I highlight a royal gentleman – and tweak it a bit to highlight a royal lady I have never covered before. And her man can come along for the ride. So the Hot Guy and Hot Girl of December are: King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck and Queen Jetsun Pema of Bhutan. PS. My god, can you believe it is December already?! Also, I’ll cover more of Prince Harry’s South Africa tour later this week, possibly tomorrow.

Thoughts on a comment policy

I’ve never had a comment policy on here, other than an unwritten “be nice”. That has worked well enough for the last 2+ years, but there have been flare ups, especially when there is a a Kate drought. Honestly, it seems like people go a bit stir crazy when Kate disappears for long stretches. This has happened several times in the last 2+ years. As I said, my unwritten “be nice” comment policy has worked well enough, but lately I’ve noticed that there have been more flare ups in the comment section. Maybe this is due to the increased unhappiness with Kate, maybe this is due to the Kate drought of late, I don’t know, it could be a number of things.
