An increasing number of staff members at Buckingham Palace, where the UK’s royal family hangs out, have been bringing people they meet on Grindr and Tinder back to their living quarters.

A Queen Elizabeth Photobomb Makes This The Best Selfie Ever

Two Australian hockey players captured one of the better selfies in Instagram history when Queen Elizabeth peeked into the shot behind them. The queen paid a surprise visit to the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland on Thursday to see a Wales-England hockey match. She arrived early, just as the Australian match was coming to…

You Can’t Say The Queen Wasn’t Warned…

Finally a story to bring out the giddy nerd lurking inside all of us. Not only does it contain UFOs and British monarchy, but add in some Death Eater-like locutions and you’ve got yourself a teen-sci-fi-fantasy-novel in the works.

British National Archives released letters sent between 2007 and 2009 to members of British…

What To Know About The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee

The Diamond Jubilee is another way to say 60 years since Queen Elizabeth II became queen. Technically, it kicked off on Feb. 6, 2012, 60 years since her father died in 1952 and she replaced him as monarch at the age of 25, but the main event starts Saturday. Queen Elizabeth II is only the…

The Luckiest Corgis In The World

I’ve never been jealous of a corgi before, but these little guys, decked out in special patriotic finery, might be the exception. You see, they met and even were pet by the black-gloved hand of Queen Elizabeth II, during her visit to Sherborne Abbey in the Southwest of England as a part of their Jubilee…

Kate Middleton Forced To Get Pregnant As Adoption Won’t Work For The Queen

Kate Middleton must have her own children with Prince William before she will be allowed to adopt according to Queen Elizabeth II.  It has been said that Kate considers Angelina Jolie her role model, so it is not surprising that she is considering adoption.  Nevertheless, it is the royal couple’s duty to provide the monarchy with an heir or two before adoption can be seriously considered.

I See London, I See France … And Queen Elizabeth’s Underpants

Why celebrities should never, ever accidentally leave belongings behind: they will surely end up on the internet or up for auction. That’s what’s going on with a pair of Queen Elizabeth’s underpants—if you can even call them that—that she apparently left on a plane way back in 1968. For some 40 years, they had bee…

Queen Liz Rocks BluBlockers

I’m glad Queen Elizabeth recognizes the importance of blocking out 99.9 percent of UV rays. And she looks damn hot doing it.

A Car Fit For A Queen Up For Grabs

A car built specifically for Queen Elizabeth II is up for sale. The like-new 2001 Jaguar Daimler Majestic V8 LWB has 14,000 miles on it — 12,000 of which were put on by the queen herself between 2001 and 2004. She used the luxury car to travel between Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle, to visit…

The Lady Greets The Queen

The looks on the guys standing around Gaga and Queen Elizabeth are the best part of this photo. The one closest to Gaga seems to be thinking, “Damn, Queenie, I wouldn’t touch her if I was you. She might be contagious!” The guy on the end who looks like Ryan from “The Office” is thinking,…

Want To Pose Nude For Rankin?

I posed nude once. The photographer was a professional and a friend, and the scene was a sound stage. The photos were black and white, and you couldn’t really see anything, as I covered up my naughty bits. It was pretty fun actually, and kind of freeing. If you’ve been wondering what it would be…

Were The Gifts Obama Gave The Pope Better Than The Gifts He Gave The Queen?

The Obamas are in Europe this week for the G-8 summit, and while in Italy, the president met Pope Benedict for the first time. As is custom for visiting world leaders, the Pope and the American prez exchanged presents.

This reminds us of the time that Obama brought presents when he and the First…

The Touch Felt ‘Round The World

Yesterday, at a reception at Buckingham Palace for the G20 summit, the Obamas met Queen Elizabeth, and Michelle did the unthinkable: She touched the Queen. This seems pretty innocuous, however, apparently it’s a big deal. Well, at least to some people.

When you meet royalty there is certain protocol that, while not set i…

Royal Mix-Up: Prince Charles Invites Dita Von Teese Over

Who can resist the charms of glamour queen Dita Von Teese? Not even stodgy Prince Charles, which is why he introduced himself to the attractive alabaster stranger at a Cartier event. When the Royal asked Ms. Dita what she did, she replied that she was a “dancer.” When Prince Charles unwittingly asked the dancer to…
