Hello there! Long time, no blog. I stepped away from blogging in 2018 – in my update post from January of that year I said my break would be roughly two weeks – but I truly did not intend for my break to be a year and a half long. I am returning to blogging […]
To update you all: I am dealing with some personal issues at the moment, so I will be taking a hiatus from the blog for the next two weeks, approximately. I am going to go ahead and close the comments while I am away. Thank you for understanding.
Season 2 of The Crown dropped on Netflix yesterday. Instead of waiting until I’m finished with the season to write a post it (I haven’t had a chance to watch any of it yet), I am creating an open post here where we can discuss the show as we watch it (if you choose to […]
The Emmy Awards were held last night, and The Crown, which depicted the early reign of Queen Elizabeth II, was up for several awards, including Best Actress and Best Drama Series. The only award they won last night was Best Supporting Actor for John Lithgow.
Here’s a quick blog update. I am still without power due to Hurricane Irma, so the blog will essentially be on hiatus until I get power back. I do not have an ETA for getting power back as the outage is so widespread that the electric company won’t give out updates.

I’m a bit late to the King Charles III party. It aired here in the US last Sunday on PBS, but I haven’t had time to watch it until now. It’s pretty bad, you guys. I know some of you had a lot of problems with The Crown, but man, that show was way better […]
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 […]
This has already been discussed in the comments a bit, but I want to cover it anyway so I can talk about it. The Daily Mail’s Girl About Town column has an article claiming that Kate Middleton will receive the Royal Family Order from Queen Elizabeth II this year for her work with mental health.
This is only tangentially royal related, but since I wrote up my thoughts on Netflix series The Crown last year, I thought I’d post a little update on the show. Claire Foy, who played Queen Elizabeth II, won for Actress in a TV Series Drama and The Crown won for TV Series Drama at last […]
