Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall decorates Christmas tree with terminally ill children

Considering it’s Christmas Eve, I thought I’d post some festive pics of Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall decorating the Clarence House Christmas tree with terminally ill children from Helen & Douglas House hospice. These photos are actually from December 11, which I never got around to posting, so apologies if you’ve seen these already. I like these photos, though; they may be some of my favorites from the entire year, so I want to post them even if they are 13 days old. Besides, they’re Christmas-y.

Kate spent £1 million on KP and doesn’t like the paint, apparently + William preforms an investiture while Kate attends a party

This is a catch-all post for some Will and Kate news before I move on.

Kate apparently isn’t happy with the color scheme in her newly redecorated Kensington Palace apartment. They spent £1 million of taxpayer money to fix it up, and now she wants to change stuff. A source said, “she wasn’t happy with the result [of the paint], and one room came out with a horrible, unexpected purple tinge. She’s blaming it on her hormones [cough] before the birth [cough cough].” They’ve reportedly hired some fancy designer. Honestly, the article is as much about this guy as it is about Kate, so I’m not sure if this article is accurate or if it is a plug by the designer to get some publicity–it might be both, they may have hired a designer and he wants attention for it. He’s supposedly also going to decorate Anmer Hall. Going back to the cost of all this, a KP spokesperson said, “the cost of any interior decorating and furnishing would be covered privately by the Royal Family. [The £1 million of public money was spent on] essential structural work that needed to be completed by whoever moved into the buildings.” So there’s that.

Kate is nervous to give birth but is keeping herself “busy”; plus she’s getting free gifts

Goodness, I’m really getting sick of this, I’m ready for it to be over.  But then again, I’m going out of town for the holiday weekend so I’m really hoping that Kate won’t go into labor until at least the seventh, if not later.  Watch the baby be born today (because it’s July 4th now since it’s after midnight), ugh.  Today I was watching E News and they started the show off with pictures of Kate and I freaked out for a moment thinking she had had the baby—which I knew was not possible since none of the royal reporters on Twitter had mentioned anything (I’ve been Twitter stalking all of them so I don’t miss anything), but I still had that moment.  I’m not even a Kate supporter, nor am I really excited about the new baby, but the closer we get to the birth the more my nerves are on edge.  I don’t want to miss it, you know.  Maybe I’m more excited than I’ve led myself to believe.  Or maybe I’m just curious to the sex and what they’ll name it (I think, or at least I want, it to be a boy, and be named Arthur.  It probably won’t be named Arthur, but I still think it would be great if they named it that.  I just don’t want it to be a girl and be named Diana; that would be the worst thing possible for that poor kid).  Anyway, more Kate news:
