Kate Middleton — excuse me, the Duchess of Cambridge — kept her cool this weekend when she met an indigenous Maori during a traditional Maori Powhiri Ceremonial Welcome in Wellington, New Zealand. That’s a lot more man-butt than she’s used to seeing in Buckingham Palace, I can assure you. Prince William, Kate and their baby son George are traveling through Australia and NZ on a three-week trip promising plenty of photo ops. Does it strike anyone else as weird that these relatives of colonialist oppressors are traveling the territories and welcomed as guests? Too heavy? Sorry. Look at Kate’s pretty hair!

Kanye, Kim and North may have been photographed by Annie Liebowitz for the pages of Vogue, but I’d argue that this photo of Prince William, Duchess Kate Middleton, Prince George and dog Lupo is just as stunning, if not more so. They all just look so naturally glowing and happy. I’m not one to go gaga over the Royals — that’s Jessica’s department — but even I got a little swoon-y. [Photo: Getty Images]
I’ll be honest: this post was just an excuse to put up a gratuitous photo of Prince Harry and his hot ginger beard. It’s not even a post about Prince Harry. It’s about Prince William and how he’s headed back to school for — surprise — agricultural management. Keep reading »
Harry’s currently in Antarctica for his trek to the South Pole, and he’s given an interview about his thoughts on the upcoming journey and his family’s reaction to him on such a dangerous undertaking. He explained that Prince William was jealous of his trip, adding, “My brother, yeah, I think he’s just quite jealous that I managed to get away from a screaming child.” Read more on Celeb Dirty Laundry…
You know she is freaking out about this: Taylor Swift is gearing up to perform at Kensington Palace this month for William and Kate! On November 26, she will serenade the royals and their attendees at the Winter Whites Gala, which will benefit Centrepoint, a charity that assists homeless young people. Taylor is “really stoked” about the invitation and “very, very honored.” This is her first performance at a royal engagement, and says she’s practicing her etiquette to get ready. When she was asked how she’ll address Prince William, Taylor said it would be presumptuous of her to assume she’d get to speak to them at all. “First, I’ll just be polite enough to not assume I’m going to get to meet them,” she said. Awww, what a well-mannered thing to say. James Blunt will also be performing, as will Jon Bon Jovi, who will win a special award for his humanitarian work. Something tells me Taylor will be the only one who gets invited over by Kate afterwards to hang out.
My invitation must have gotten lost in the mail or something. [People] [Image via WENN]
- That baby looks way more Windsor than Middleton.
- Silly hats are still a thing.
- Whose idea was it to dress an infant in a probably million-dollar antique lace christening gown that it’s just going to barf all over? C’mon, peole.
- Does that flap on the front of Kate’s dress move? Because if so, that’s a brilliant way to cover up dribble stains.
- Holding a cute baby really does make men look hotter.
Check out a few more christening pics after the jump! Keep reading »
I have seen, no joke, upwards of 20 headlines today crowing about how flat Kate Middleton’s abs are just four months after having Prince George. OMH, how does she do it?! Well, she’s practically a princess so I assume she has a magic wand. Anyway, I wasn’t going to post about it — because who cares? — but then I saw the photos (taken at the SportsAid Athlete Workshop in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London) and realized there was something far more impressive to blog about. Look at the gracefulness of that jump float (yes, I just learned that word, and no, I’m not entirely sure it applies)! And look at the shoes she’s doing it in! This is far more headline-worthy, c’mon. Click through for a few more photos, including a close up of those sweet kicks. [Photos: Pacific Coast News]
