Kate and William attend Festival of Remembrance, Harry attends Field of Remembrance

Prince William and Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, attended the Festival of Remembrance today, October 7th, at the Royal Albert Hall in London. The Cambridges joined many other members of the British Royal Family for the first time at this annual occasion. Prince Harry attended the Field of Remembrance event at Westminster Abbey on November 5th with Prince Philip which I did not cover in my most recent royal round up (as that event had not happened when I posted that article) so I will cover that here, too.

Princess Michael’s “Diana was uneducated” and “older royals are boring” quotes are actually completely true

Princess Michael is still pimping her book (The Queen of Four Kingdoms), this time on Canadian TV.  In the interview Princess Michael talked about Princess Diana and mentioned William and Kate and the younger royal generation.  Her comments have made headlines and people are harping on key phrases without giving the context—because context is boring when a few words can cause an outrage and get people to click on articles.  I understand the whole salacious headline to get readership/clicks, but it bugs the crap out of me because people latch onto those headlines and make a big deal out of it when if you read the quotes in context they aren’t that bad (and that goes for a lot of things, not just these Princess Michael quotes).  Her comments that are making headlines are about Princess Diana being uneducated and how the older royals are boring.  Ugh, I hate to defend her (since I was kind of called out for defending her in the last Princess Michael post I made), but her quotes aren’t really that salacious; they are pretty accurate when read in context.

Princess Michael, part 1: “Princess Pushy” or not so bad?

Princess Michael of Kent has given a new interview to Tatler magazine, and there is a story about it with some excerpts in the Daily Mail.  She is surprisingly candid for a royal.  Being a royal, I would expect her not to talk about other royals, especially William, Kate and Harry.  There is nothing too revealing, but she did mention them and talk about their houses at Kensington Palace.

It is NOT okay to call her Princess Kate: titles clarification

There has been some confusion/controversy over Kate Middleton’s official title in the last few days.  It all started when Clarence House released an image of Prince George’s birth certificate and under “mother’s occupation” it said, “Princess of the United Kingdom”.  After this was made public, the media pounced on the “princess” reference.  They made a huge deal about Kate being called a princess, and a lot of reporters and fans were saying it is now okay to call Kate, Princess Kate.  Of course the rational, non-sycophants were very unhappy with this and pushed against those saying Kate is a princess and that it’s okay to call her Princess Kate by saying that Kate is not a princess but rather a duchess, since she was bestowed the title Duchess of Cambridge upon her marriage.  I would like to clarify things a bit:
