Prince William And Kate Middleton’s Engagement Photo Gets Creepy

We thought Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s official engagement photo was a little weird. And now that we’ve seen Prince Charles and Diana’s engagement photo, it’s downright effing creepy. William and Kate are posed exactly as Charles and Diana were, from the placement of their hands on each other, to the women wearing the exact same hulking rock. William looks eerily like his dad, only with red hair. And Kate looks an awful lot like a long-haired Diana, which is exceptionally wrong because she’s, well, dead. Not to mention, why would these two want to emulate Williams’ parents’ photo as their marriage was notoriously unhappy? What do you guys think—is this creepy or is it just me? [NY Daily News]

Who Pays For The Royal Wedding?

When many American couples are planning a wedding, tradition dictates the father of the bride foots all or most of the bill. Sure, Kate Middleton‘s parents are self-made millionaires from their mail order party supply company, Party Pieces. But that’s nothing on Prince William‘s deep-pocketed relatives, of course. 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 »

Jewelry Superstitions: Why Wearing Diana’s Ring May Be A Bad Omen For Kate Middleton

Kate Middleton‘s engagement ring just so happens to be a hand-me-down from the late Princess Diana. Although this family treasure is very dear to Prince William’s heart, the superstitious among us would agree that Kate should never have accepted it. Why? Well, because it’s widely believed that jewelry can be cursed. Take the Hope Diamond, for example, which many believe has been cursed since it was stolen in 1642. Since then, tragedy, injury, or even death has befallen all those who have come in contact with it, including Marie Antoinette. Even if you don’t believe that jewelry can be cursed, I always heard the old wives’ tale that engagement rings are supposed to carry the energy of the marriage from whence it came. Meaning it’s bad luck to inherit a ring from an unhappy marriage. So essentially Kate is wearing the ring of a troubled princess who had a very bad marriage, not to mention a tragic end. If I were Kate, I might have hoped for something with a little bit less bad ju-ju. [Hottnez]
