Some days, being a princess sounds like a pretty sweet set up. Then reality sets in and I realize it would really suck to have gossip magazines make it headline news that you missed your child’s milestone while you’re away at a five-star restort.
Currently, Princess Kate is being dragged through the tabloids for missing Prince George’s first attempt at crawling while she was vacationing in the Maldives. Kate and Prince William were away on their first baby-free getaway earlier this month and — of course — that’s when little Prince George decided to test the crawling waters, showing off for his maternal grandparents, Carole and Michael Middleton. US Weekly breathlessly reported on this “exclusive,” further solidifying their place in hell by furthering the institution that is known as parental guilt. Keep reading »
When I read that Prince William’s private voicemails to Kate Middleton had been read aloud in court as part of the ongoing phone hacking trial, I was mortified, especially because the transcripts included him referring to his future wife as “Babykins.” Oh my gosh, I thought, I can’t think of anything more embarrassing than the world knowing my dorky petnames for my boyfriend. My next thought? I should write a post where I tell the world my dorky petnames for my bofyriend. Alas, this is the life of a blogger.

- Holding a cute baby really does make men look hotter.
Check out a few more christening pics after the jump! Keep reading »
I have seen, no joke, upwards of 20 headlines today crowing about how flat Kate Middleton’s abs are just four months after having Prince George. OMH, how does she do it?! Well, she’s practically a princess so I assume she has a magic wand. Anyway, I wasn’t going to post about it — because who cares? — but then I saw the photos (taken at the SportsAid Athlete Workshop in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London) and realized there was something far more impressive to blog about. Look at the gracefulness of that jump float (yes, I just learned that word, and no, I’m not entirely sure it applies)! And look at the shoes she’s doing it in! This is far more headline-worthy, c’mon. Click through for a few more photos, including a close up of those sweet kicks. [Photos: Pacific Coast News]
