Prince Charles Loves Doctor Who

Prince Charles loves Doctor Who, who knew

Charles and Camilla went to the set of Doctor Who in Cardiff, Wales and took a tour. I am a huge Doctor Who fan.  That’s something Prince Charles and I apparently have in common.  Charles has been a Doctor Who fan since he was a teenager—that’s when Doctor Who first came on the air, it’s celebrating its 50th anniversary this year with a huge special in November, hence the royal visit.  That’s why I’m linking this, because I love Doctor Who and am terribly envious of their visit, and it is nice to see Charles actually smile and mean it in the photos in this article.  I know a lot of people don’t like Charles, but I don’t think he’s as horrible a person as he’s been made out to be.  He has his faults (a lot of them), but I do think he would make a relatively good king (at least he would make a much better king than William).

Kate isn’t in London? Will she be there for the birth?

After the press made such a big deal about Kate not attending the Percy wedding because she was frightened that she may deliver early and wanted to stay in London just in case, Kate Middleton has decided to not stay in London after all.  According to Us Weekly, Kate is staying in Anglesey, Wales to be near William during the last few weeks of pregnancy (and will come to London at some point to deliver, right?  They don’t say).  Us is claiming that there is a plan in place in case Kate goes into labor early: they have a helicopter ready to fly her to London to have the baby.  Here is the plan that they should have: stay put in London if you’re afraid you’ll give birth early!  That was the point of not attending the Percy wedding, right?  Then why aren’t you in London?  Because the press lied and I was right that it was never about staying close to London, it was about being asked not to attend.  This story just blows holes in their previous stories and shows, once again, that they are big fat liars.

Beatrice and Eugenie’s Style Transformation: The right way to PR campaign

There is a new article about Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie in the Daily Mail.  It is all about how they have turned into really great young ladies over the last few years and are ready to take on real roles, as members of the royal family and in the real-world work force.  It’s a nice piece of PR.  Clearly it is designed to make them look good and make the public like them.  Well, it worked for me.  For now.  I will have to follow them into the future and see how they handle things and see where their careers take them to see if they really are serious about being working women, but for now I will give them a chance.  It seems like there are a lot of people behind the scenes that want these two to be taken seriously as royals, to no longer be the butt of jokes in the press, and to not be pushed out by Charles.  Just from this one article, these two girls seem much better than Kate or William, or Harry for that matter.

Pippa has no style: Finally the Daily Mail is catching on

Oh my gawd!  The Daily Mail has an article up all about Pippa’s awful style sense.  I have thought for a long time that Pippa had no taste in clothes and didn’t know how to put an outfit together, but the DM continually lauded her dress sense and tried to push on us that Pips was some huge fashion girl.  Well not anymore.  This article completely trashes Pippa’s style.  It’s amazing!  There are some great quips in there, but this quote just sums up her whole style perfectly:

Is Kate lying about her due date?

There are new reports that Kate could be lying about the due date for her baby and that she could be due ten days earlier than has been previously reported.  It was first reported that she was due in July, then they narrowed it down to mid-July, then some media outlets were saying anywhere from July 13-15 (I’ve seen different outlets say different days, so I’m not sure).  Well now the Telegraph has a story about how Kate could by lying and that they think she’s actually due in the first week of July.  Apparently Diana told everyone that her due date was July 1 (with William), but she delivered ten days early, on June 21.  They keep harping on the fact that Kate refused to attend the Percy wedding last weekend (and instead went shopping) because she was afraid she would deliver early; but as I’ve said previously, I think that was just a fib so that it wouldn’t look bad when she didn’t attend when the real reason was the Percy’s didn’t want her there.  Of course, Kate has been so thin throughout her pregnancy that if she is due earlier than previously thought, my god she is tiny for a nine months pregnant woman.  Seriously.  If you were to tell me that she was due later than previously reported, I’d totally believe you since she looks nowhere near the end of her pregnancy.

TV presenter wants Kate to breastfeed in public: good idea or unneeded drama?

This story aggravates me.  I have no idea who this woman is but she has just used Kate Middleton’s name to piggyback one of her own causes—much like the lingerie woman.  That in itself is annoying enough, but this woman is kind of an idiot if she thinks what she’s asking for would in any way benefit anyone.  She’s not thinking clearly about the outcome of her request.

The Wedding of Lady Melissa Percy and Thomas van Straubenzee

The Duke of Northumberland’s second daughter, Lady Melissa Percy, married Thomas van Straubenzee in a ceremony in Alnwick today.  It was billed as the “society wedding of the year” and the “royal wedding of the North”.  There were about 500 people in attendance, including: Prince Harry, Prince William, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, Chelsy Davy (who served as a bridesmaid), Pippa Middleton, and Cressida Bonas (go here and here to get the rundown of the who’s who of the society set that attended the wedding).  Kate Middleton was “unable” to attend due to “fear that she might go into labor early”.  The bride arrived in a 200 year old family carriage that has been fully restored.  I will be covering the fashion from the wedding in a separate post so as to not over clutter one post.  Go here for the Order of Service.  I’m sure it was a beautiful wedding, and, from what I can tell in pictures, the bride and groom do seem happy.  Congratulations and best wishes on their wedding and good luck for the future!

Princess Eugenie set to take on full time job in New York

I want to take a minute and acknowledge Princess Eugenie’s new job (starting in October) at an auction house in New York.  I applaud Eugenie for getting her degree in Art History and not wasting it, like Kate Middleton.  Eugenie has been working in internships since she got her degree, while still taking on royal duties.  Now she is set to take on a full time job at an auction house in New York this October.  “‘She is determined to be a working woman with a full-time job,’ says the friend.”  If this is true, and it looks like it is, then good for her.  She is one of the better royals for thinking and acting like this and she deserves some credit.  So credit where credit is due: Good job Eugenie! Go get ’em, girl!

Join in the conversation: What do you think of Eugenie’s new job?
