In the wee hours of the morning on May 4, there was word that there was a meeting called with the royal staff about a big announcement regarding the royals, and speculation went wild wondering what it was about. It turned out not to be as drastic as had been speculated, but it was very […]
This news is not surprising as it has been circulating in the press for a while, but Kensington Palace officially announced today that Prince Harry will leave the armed forces in June following a ten year military career.
Le Sigh. On Thursday, August 7, the Palace officially announced (although the press announced this months ago via “sources”) that Prince William will be taking a full time job as a pilot for the East Anglian Air Ambulance. I didn’t cover it until now because, well, I was still processing. I’m not sure how I […]
Here are the poll results for the Least Favorite Outfit and Least Favorite Hat polls. I’m including a few Kate and William things at the end of the post—an upcoming engagement, a possible new bum-gate, and a possible new career path for Will. So, onto the poll results…
We have a winner! I have the Favorite Outfit Poll results. The LK Bennett blue/white poppy print dress was the winner with 23.08% of the vote.

The Wessex Youth Trust is a charity set up in 1999, after the Wessex […]
I’ve been debating whether to comment on this latest article about Kate looking for a new nanny, because I thought we had already known that. This is kind of a throwaway post, but the Kate news has been light after the flurry of stuff a few weeks ago, so why not? Also, there are interesting […]
Kate attended a reception held by the Queen at Buckingham Palace for actors, directors, producers, and other members of the entertainment industry and RADA in honor of the Queen’s 60 years as patron of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts. Prince Michael of Kent also attended. They meet the guests and watched a few short […]
I was starting to read this article marking Kate’s 1,000 days as a Duchess and I kept commenting in my head about too many things to count, so I thought instead of giving an overall impression and using a few quotes here and there I’d just bullet point quotes and give my thoughts.
