Kate and Will looking for a new nanny, but they’re still whitewashing their lives

Kate and Will are looking for a new nanny to take with them when they go on tour to Oz and NZ in April.  Their current nanny, Jessie Webb, 71, has “reached the end of her contract” and doesn’t want to stay on anymore since she only agreed to come out of retirement—she was William’s nanny when he was young, but retired years ago—“on the condition that she would only work for three months”.  Webb is still at Kensington Palace and looking after George for right now, but Kate and Will are looking for someone to replace her, even though they want her to stay on.  But even if she did stay on she wouldn’t want to travel to Oz for a month, because she’s old, so they would have to get someone else for that trip anyway.

Is Princess Madeleine of Sweden expecting a girl?

Princess Madeleine of Sweden is seven months pregnant, and is reportedly having a girl.  She has not confirmed the sex of the baby personally, but reportedly they registered for baby shower gifts with an American website revealing the sex of the baby to be female.  And a Swedish Royal Court spokeswoman reportedly confirmed the information to a Swedish website (I looked at it and it seems like it’s a royal, and celeb, gossip website?  I’m not from Sweden so I don’t know how reliable it is).  I guess we should believe it if the spokesperson confirmed it?  I don’t know.  Either way, congrats to them.  Can’t wait to find out the name.  I’m always interested in the name.

William is heading to Cambridge, without Kate and George, for 10 more weeks of schooling

Prince William is heading back to school… for a 10 week course at Cambridge University.  He will be learning such things as geography, economics, and land economy from early January to mid-March to prepare him for later in life when he inherits the Duchy of Cornwall—a £763 million 130,000-acre portfolio of land, property and investments.  Interesting fact about the Duchy, it was created as a hereditary estate in 1337 to provide private income for the monarch’s eldest son.

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).

Cressida Bonas’ PR campaign continues and she won’t be spending New Year’s with Harry

If this isn’t a PR piece directly from Cressida’s camp, I don’t know what is.  There is an article about how Cressida is “keeping it real” by continuing to use public transport instead of private cars.  The article quotes a friend and touts how amazing and down-to-earth Cressida is for continuing to take the metro even though she’s totally a terror target, and she’s totally the new Diana because she’s causing the royal protection officers problems because she’s not a “pushover” and blah blah blah.

Kate and William hold hands to walk to church

Kate attended church, twice, with the royal family this year.  She wore a cream/pink coat with a pretty tartan scarf for the early service, and she wore the McQueen tartan coat dress for the later service.  I love the McQueen coat, it is beautiful.  I loved it the first time she wore it and I love it now.  And I like it paired with the green hat.
