This is Christina Spencer. She’s 26 an a lawyer from Brighton in the UK. She’s also embarking upon a side-career as a yet another professional Kate Middleton lookalike. All she needs is to overcome her lisp and get a professional Prince William lookalike on her arm (apparently they’re hard to come by). And why not? With Christina’s long brown hair, round cheeks and oval face, she says strangers tell her she looks like the Duchess of Cambridge all the time. “You can’t really have much more of a compliment then saying you look like the Duchess of Cambridge,” she told the UK’s Daily Mail. Indeed. [Daily Mail UK] [Image via Express UK]
Princess Charlene of Monaco has a formidable sense of style, but given her role as, you know, royalty, she doesn’t get too many chances to put it on display. Mainly resigned to lackluster shades of beige and grey, Charlene always works a great fit and stylish footwear, but her ensembles are rarely anything to write home about, despite vocal approval from Giorgio Armani and the notoriously difficult-to-impress Karl Lagerfeld, who told her, “You are going to be a style icon. You bring a breath of fresh air and modern glamour to Monaco.” I daresay things seem to be changing for Charlene sartorially — perhaps she’s feeling a bit more wiggle room now that it’s been almost a year since her royal wedding to Prince Albert? — if the spring 2012 Prada dress she donned at this week’s Monaco F1 Grand Prix race is any indication. The garment itself, which features a series of turquoise race cars, was a cheeky nod to the occasion, and Charlene topped it all off with a bright red lipstick that (coincidentally?) complemented the noise-reducing headphones. This may or may not be the kind of look one would normally anticipate from a woman fit to be queen, but it is awesome. Duchess of Cambridge, take note.

That didn’t take long: an American girl has already sunk her claws into my future husband, the bitch. Prince Harry, who is doing helicopter training in California, has been spotted three times with a 26-year-old waitress named Jessica Donaldson. They met two weeks ago at the Andaz Hotel in San Diego, where Jessica works, and were seen eating lunch together the next day. Last weekend the pair were seen partying at a bar in Solana Beach, kissing and drinking tequila. Jessica is a brunette and I am also named Jessica and am a brunette. But she has “a large floral tattoo down one side,” according to the New York Post, while I do not. And this, I believe, is what is keeping Prince Harry and I apart. Le sigh.

It is true that we prefer Courtney Love just the way she is, as a naked photo-Tweeting, always-ranting lunatic. But soon that could be Lady Lunatic to you. Courtney’s new dude is Brit Henry Allsopp—in addition to giving him credit for “saving her,” she’s also given him power of attorney over her bank account. “He’s a really good person,” she says. “Frances would love him.” Now here is where things get interesting. Allsopp is on track for the title of Lord—he is the godson of Camilla Parker Bowles. Here’s hoping that when Allsopp gets the title, he makes Courtney his Lady, because that would be kind of amazing.

Two months ago, Princess Diana biographer and The Daily Beast editor-in-chief Tina Brown predicted Prince William and his longtime girlfriend, Kate Middleton, would announce their engagement last weekend. June 3rd and 4th came and went without a peep from across the pond. What gives?
Prince William is apparently pissed off because of at least one paparazzi pic of his girlfriend playing tennis on a family vacation, which was leaked to a German magazine. According to Brown’s sources, he suspects someone she knows is tipping the paps off, and he wishes Kate were more upset about it. Keep reading »
