The Queen has “just £1 million left” and the palaces are “crumbling”… so they throw a Kate appearance announcement at us

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 overview of the situation, but here is the official report if you’d like to read it.

Kate’s taste for Duchess-ing came early when she played Eliza Doolittle in school play

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 Lady in 1993.  Here’s the Daily Mail article about it.  I saw the Sun article about it earlier but I don’t subscribe to the Sun’s website so I didn’t have full access to the article, so I didn’t cover it.

Princess Michael’s “Diana was uneducated” and “older royals are boring” quotes are actually completely true

Princess Michael is still pimping her book (The Queen of Four Kingdoms), this time on Canadian TV.  In the interview Princess Michael talked about Princess Diana and mentioned William and Kate and the younger royal generation.  Her comments have made headlines and people are harping on key phrases without giving the context—because context is boring when a few words can cause an outrage and get people to click on articles.  I understand the whole salacious headline to get readership/clicks, but it bugs the crap out of me because people latch onto those headlines and make a big deal out of it when if you read the quotes in context they aren’t that bad (and that goes for a lot of things, not just these Princess Michael quotes).  Her comments that are making headlines are about Princess Diana being uneducated and how the older royals are boring.  Ugh, I hate to defend her (since I was kind of called out for defending her in the last Princess Michael post I made), but her quotes aren’t really that salacious; they are pretty accurate when read in context.
