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.
Royal watchers concerned with the monarchy have been impatient for the news that Duchess Kate is pregnant – since an adopted child would be ineligible to ascend to the throne. William’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth IIsays that while she would consider the idea of Kate adopting in the future, she first wants to see her produce a legitimate heir. Read more…
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 been in the possession of a Florida man, recently deceased. The old-fashioned panties will be up for auction at the man’s estate sale and are expected to go for as much as $9,000! This apparently happened to Queen Victoria’s underwear, which sold for the same price, reports TMZ.

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 friends, to go to church, and to get around the Royal Estate in Windsor. The Jag was modified to hold Her Majesty’s purse on a specially designed armrest and has a direct link radio to Home Office and Downing Street, which is the official residences of two of Britain’s most senior cabinet ministers. The radio, of course, is now non-functioning, but the fantasy of playing queen sounds fun anyway. Surprisingly, the original registration used by the queen, service book, spare keys are still in the car. Peter Ratcliffe, a memorabilia dealer with Legends in Time, bought the car and is now entertaining only serious inquiries. [Reuters, HMTheQueensDaimler.com] Keep reading »
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, “Can you believe Little Red Riding Hood had a baby with Batman’s Robin? I didn’t even know they knew each other.” The big question, of course, is: What do you think is going through the Queen’s mind? Keep reading »
