Locals Dish About Life With William & Kate

  • Now that Prince William and Kate Middleton are moving into Kensington Palace with baby George, locals on the UK island of Anglesey are opening up about the couple’s time there while Wills worked for the military. They say Kate never wore makeup while grocery shopping, the pair went pheasant shooting once a month, and they once turned up at a “Toy Story 3″ moving screening wearing “Day-Glo comedy afro wigs” … whatever that means.  [Daily Mail UK]
  • So sweet: “Scandal”‘s Columbus Short tweeted that costar Kerry Washington was “ROBBED” of an Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series Emmy and “I wish I could of ran on stage [sic] and pulled a Kanye.” [Madame Noire]
  • I’m madly jealous that Rihanna got to snuggle a slow loris. [TMZ]
  • Cher opens up about how she was affected by her son Chaz’s sex change, her thoughts on Hillary Clinton, and why she never takes drugs. [Guardian UK]

Kate Middleton Makes Her First Official Appearance Since Giving Birth To Prince George

Look out, London! It’s official: Kate Middleton is back in the red carpet game, making her first formal appearance since Prince George‘s birth in late July. The Duchess accompanied Prince William to the Tusk Conservation Awards at the Royal Society in London this evening wearing a, um, scintillating floor-length gown by royal favorite Jenny Packham. The girl loves herself some sparkles, and who could blame her? She looks beautiful, and she also looks really, really happy. It almost brings a tear to this jaded American eye. Could it have a tiny bit to do with the fact that Wills has departed his Royal Air Force duty after eight years in favor of remaining in London with his new family? Perhaps! In any case… yay Kate!

Prince George’s First Godparent Is Chosen!

Prince William, Kate Middleton & Prince George Pose For First Official Family Portrait

Per royal tradition, Kate Middleton and Prince William will be choosing not 1, not 2, not 3, not 4, not 5, but 6 godparents for Prince George. In some ways, it really takes the pressure off of the royal couple, because, as any godparent-bestowing parent knows, picking just two can be daunting. But in other aspects, sheesh. It almost makes offending people all the more easy. If you’re friends or relatives with the Duke and Duchess and you’re not chosen, what does that say about you?

The selection process is already underway, and although it will likely be a bit of time before all 6 are chosen, one godparent already has reportedly been selected. And, shockingly, it isn’t Pippa or Harry. Read more on The Stir…

Prince William, Kate Middleton & Prince George Pose For First Official Family Portrait

Kensington Palace released the first photos of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince George. The photos, taken earlier this month by the Duchess’ father Michael Middleton, show the new family in the garden of Michael and Carole’s sprawling Bucklebury manor.

One photo shows William, Catherine, George with their cocker spaniel, Lupo and the Middleton family’s retriever, Tilly.

The Duke and Duchess stayed with the Middletons for the first few weeks of George’s life. Now it’s understood that the family of three is staying at their rented farmhouse in Anglesey, Wales while William finishes his operational tour with the Royal Air Force.

Meet George The Crocodile

Some will send binkies. Some will send booties. Some will send rattles. But the government of Australia gave the newborn prince/their monarchal overlord Prince George Alexander Louis another sort of gift entirely: a baby crocodile. The little snapper was hatched on December 3, the same day Kate Middleton announced her pregnancy to the world, and he’ll be joining the pair of crocodiles already “gifted” to Prince William and Kate the last time they visited Australia. But lil’ Georgie won’t actually get to play with his new pet croc, as he will live in a city called Darwin, presumably at a zoo. What a shite baby gift! George can’t even take it for walks around Kensington Palace or scratch its chin without getting his hand snapped off. Oh well. Queen Elizabeth is probably going to give him, like, the Cayman Islands or something, so it’ll work out. [Telegraph UK]

George Alexander Louis: The Royal Baby Gets A Name!

What Will The Royal Baby's Name Be? Let's Discuss The Contenders!

Now that the Great Kate Wait is over and the baby prince has been born, we’ve shifted our obsession to guessing what the royal baby name will be! Given that Will and Kate have hundreds of years of tradition to uphold, chances are that the royal moniker will be chosen from this no-weird-names shortlist, and announced some time this week. Keep in mind royals choose several middle names (Prince William has three – William Arthur Philip Louis) so the full name could be a combination of some of the options below. Here are the current frontrunners: Keep reading »

Random Style Inspiration: Royal Baby Madness

Royal Baby

Not sure if you’ve caught wind of the barely mentioned, mostly overlooked news story that Duchess Kate is IN LABOR RIGHT NOW and the royal baby will be born ANY MINUTE. I couldn’t resist putting together a little collection of cute crown-themed products inspired by the birthday of the future king or queen of England. Because although I might be a commoner, I’m always down to add some royal bling to my jewelry box.  Check out all the shopping details (and definitively non-royal price tags) after the jump!

You may not care that right now, as you read this, the heir to the English throne might be crowning out of Kate Middleton’s vagina. But guess what? You don’t have to care. I’ll care for you. Yes, the British royal family is my guilty pleasure.  They’re just a clique of funny-looking rich people with no real power and yet their drunken nightclub stumbles, silly hats and romantic foibles are endlessly fascinating to me. With Kate about to give birth to a baby — third-in-line to the throne! — any minute now, it’s as good a time as any to brush up on your royals.
