William & Harry remember their mum in ‘Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy’

I had a chance to catch Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy which aired on HBO here Monday night. Prince William and Prince Harry open up about Princess Diana and what her personality was like and how she was as a mother. The documentary can be summed up by a quote from William about why they chose to make this: “Her 20th anniversary year seems like a good time to remember all the good things about her and hopefully provide maybe a different side that others haven’t seen before.”

Why I still call the Duchess of Cambridge ‘Kate Middleton’

Every once in a while, I’ll get a comment questioning why I still call the Duchess of Cambridge “Kate Middleton” even though she hasn’t been “Kate Middleton” since April 29, 2011. I’ve explained it in the comment section before, but since the subject was brought up again recently I thought I’d take a more in-depth look at the topic for a couple of reasons: 1) So I have something easy to point to if the question ever arises again; 2) Because every few months since I started calling Sofia Hellqvist “Princess Sofia” I’ve been questioning why it was so easy for me to switch names for her but not for Catherine; 3) I’ve been thinking about writing a titles clarification post for a couple months since I saw a comment on another site complaining about the way people write certain royals’ names; 4) I recently read an article trying to explain why people still call Catherine “Kate Middleton” and think their reasoning was incorrect (at least for me). So I thought I’d kill fours birds with one article and write up my personal thoughts on the subject.
