Princess Charlene of Monaco gave birth to twins, a boy named Jacques and a girl named Gabriella, on Wednesday. Despite the fact that Gabriella is two minutes older than her brother, Jacques will be the heir to the throne because of Monaco’s male inheritance laws. The twins are the first children born to Princess Charlene and her husband Prince Albert, though Albert has two prior children born out of wedlock. Monaco tradition also forbids children born outside a marriage from becoming heir to the throne, so now three of his kids have been deemed unworthy of ruling. Awkward. What will be most awkward of all is when Gabriella and Jacques grow up and she realizes her brother gets to boss her around for no other reason than the fact that he’s a boy, and she’s just the chick who chilled out in the womb with the future king.

Kate Middleton, Prince William, and Prince George will have three days to spend in New York City on glorified pre-Christmas shopping trip. Their royal NYC itinerary will include lots of fun stuff! In addition to unveiling their new wildlife charity, there are several things the public will expect the royal family to do. For one, there’s no way they are going to miss Rockefeller Center during Christmas time, and the entire ice skating rink might get shut down so the royals can take a spin on the ice.

When I read that Prince William’s private voicemails to Kate Middleton had been read aloud in court as part of the ongoing phone hacking trial, I was mortified, especially because the transcripts included him referring to his future wife as “Babykins.” Oh my gosh, I thought, I can’t think of anything more embarrassing than the world knowing my dorky petnames for my boyfriend. My next thought? I should write a post where I tell the world my dorky petnames for my bofyriend. Alas, this is the life of a blogger. After the jump, I’m sharing some of the weird things my boyfriend and I call each other, and I would be eternally grateful if you’d share some of yours in the comments. Don’t leave Prince William and me hangin’! Keep reading »
I’m not trying to throw shade, but Pippa Middleton royally needs some help with her beauty game.Why does she have to go around in Forever 21 Couture with a deep orange Travolta tan and a face you can see your reflection in (contrary to rumors that old Pip loves herself a good powder session) while her oh-so-lucky sister the Duchess gets to be the darling of commoners and fashion editors alike? Not fair!
I am not qualified to talk about the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, because I know literally nothing about it except for this very factual article I read on Vice. What can I say? I’m incredibly American in my ignorance. But oh my god, you guys, a royal wore nail art! Okay, so it was Princess Eugenie of York, which isn’t quite the same thing as, say, Duchess Catherine breaking out the Color Club, but still. Eugenie complimented her purple dress with a Union Jack on all 10 of her digits in honor of her grandmother’s, um, anniversary. Of something. It’s a cute idea, but I think it looks poorly executed and frankly, kind of gross. Thoughts?
