While America was shitting its collective pants yesterday, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall were Down Under snuggling cute baby animals. They appear to have wrapped up the marsupials in Hermes scarves, complete with eucalyptus leaves and interspecies affection. I never would have thought I would be jealous of Camilla, but that koala kiss is stupid cute! Also, Ami wants me to make a joke about how Camilla is really the Duchess of Koala-wall.

Luckily, the royal family is not going to give poor Michael Middleton a heart attack. “Both the Prince of Wales [i.e., Prince Charles] and the Queen are likely to contribute towards the cost of the wedding. It will be a family contribution but no final decision has been made,” a palace spokesman told the Telegraph. “In particular, if the reception is held at Buckingham Palace, the Queen will pay for that.” For the Middleton family’s sake, here’s hoping that “are likely to contribute towards the cost” means “pay for everything.” Keep reading »
