Prince Charles V Carole Middleton: 2016 edition

The weird Daily Mail press war between Prince Charles and Carole Middleton picked back up after a long hiatus. This time Katie Nicholl at the DM is wondering where the Middletons have got to since they weren’t a part of the Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations. And of course there are more quotes from “sources close to Charles” about how Charles just wants to be a doting grandfather but Carole keeps getting in the way.

Royal Round Up: Duchess Kate, ‘The Crown’ trailer, Norway royals, CP Victoria, Queen Letizia

While we continue to wait for Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, to make her first appearance of the year, Katie Nicholl has provided a nice PR piece for us to roll our eyes at. There’s also The Crown trailer to watch, which is causing a bit of eye rolling itself (in royal historians). King Harald is celebrating his Silver Jubilee; pregnant Crown Princess Victoria had her first engagement of 2016; and Queen Letizia continued to chug along at her engagements.

Post-tour updates for Will and Kate’s 3rd anniversary

Happy 3rd anniversary to Prince William and Kate Middleton.  In honor of their 3rd anniversary, let’s do some post-tour news.  First, landing in London after the royal tour counts as an official engagement for both Will and Kate.  What?  Again, that’s crap, and I’m not counting it.  My numbers and the Court Circular’s numbers at the end of the year will be off because of their “landing/departing at airports where no one sees them” numbers inflation.  Second, Will has scheduled an appearance.  He will visit the Royal Navy Submarine Museum on May 12th.  That’s just about 2 weeks after the end of the tour.  Wow, I’m impressed.  Now if only Kate would have an appearance in May.  Third, Guy Pelly is getting married in Memphis this weekend, and William and Harry are supposedly going—but Kate is staying home, I guess.  Fourth, here are some previously unseen photos of Kate and Will playing with George on Easter Sunday.  That’s nice.  But if you’ll notice, there is at least one bodyguard with them, as well as Nanny Maria.  This makes me think even more that Kate playing with George on their day off was a stunt, because there was not a bodyguard to be found on that day.  Fifth, Will and Kate will attend a ceremony on behalf of Her Majesty to commemorate the start of World War I in Belgium on August 4th—the day Britain declared war on Germany.  There were numerous happenings between June 28, 1914—when Franz Ferdinand was assassinated—and August 4th, including several ultimatums, Russia’s mobilization, and Germany declaring war on both Russia and France.  Sixth, here is an article that is so sickly sweet it’s not even funny.  The photographer who took what he claims is Kate’s favorite photo of the tour has given many quotes on how in love Kate and William are and whatnot.  He calls her “Princess Catherine” numerous times as well.  Someone needs to explain to him how titles work in Britain.  The article is calling the photo “iconic”, which I disagree with.  It’s a sweet photo, but I don’t know if it’s “iconic”-level. Seventh, go here to have a laugh at Kate’s crazy facial expressions.

New details about Kate and George, Princess Diana movie panned by critics

There’s a new article about Kate in Vanity Fair (here’s a Yahoo article with bullet points), with new details from Katie Nicholl’s new book (out September 17).  All I can say is that if any of this is true, then the Midds have done some serious leaking.
