Prince William loses beauty sleep to Princess Charlotte (updated)

Prince William did some stuff the last three days. I was going to include William’s stuff in the British round up part 3, but the post got too long, so I split it up.

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.
