No Servants For Prince William And Kate Middleton For 3 Years

Prince Charles is rumored to have a servant who squirts his toothpaste on his toothbrush. But Prince William and Kate Middleton will forgo such extravagances — for three years at least. The engaged couple will do their own laundry and cook their own meals for the remainder of the prince’s RAF military service, according to a royal source. That’s how long the couple intends to live on weekends in a cottage William rented in the town of Anglesey. “Prince William is not into extravagance and, like any other young officer in the armed forces, that is how he chooses to live his life,” said the source. “He and [Kate] live without domestic staff and they wouldn’t do it any other way. That’s the life they want to lead.” Of course, William and Kate have 24-hour body guards protecting them, but otherwise they live without maids or butlers. At least these kids don’t have any full-time staff; somehow I don’t imagine Prince William scrubbing his own toilet once a week.

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]

British Couples Are Pissy Prince William And Kate Middleton Marrying On “Their” Weekend

Britain apparently has a nation full of Emn Haddad-Friedmans. Who is Emn Haddad-Friedman, you ask? She was the bride who planned her wedding for July 31st in Rhineback, New York, the same weekend as Chelsea Clinton. Weddings are stressful enough without worrying the Clintons stole your caterers! After Prince William announced his engagement to longtime girlfriend Kate Middleton and set the wedding date for April 29, 2011, couples across Britain who chose the same day started fretting. Some Brits are really nutso about the royal family and the prince’s wedding will be a big enough deal to skip weddings of people they actually, you know, know. Personally, I think if someone chooses to stand outside Westminster Abbey for a peek at Kate’s bridal gown, or parks in front of the telly for the televised ceremony, it’s one less d-bag’s dinner and drinks you need to pay for.

Tesco Knocks Off Kate Middleton’s Engagement Dress For $25

Another day, another royal wedding knockoff: The European chain store Tesco (like an American Kmart) has quickly brought a cheapo replica of princess bride Kate Middleton‘s engagement dress to the shelves. Kate’s royal blue dress from the designer Issa cost roughly $630, while the lighter blue, shorter-sleeved Tesco version is a mere $25. I don’t really think the knockoff looks anything like the original. But then again, neither do those copycat engagement rings. When they manage to knock off a rich, handsome prince, then I’ll be impressed. [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Bishop Broadbent Gives The Royal Engagement The Bird

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 »
