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.

Will Courtney Love Become A Lady?

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.

Maybe No Fairytale Wedding For Prince William And Kate Middleton?

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 »

An Outfit Unfit For A Queen

Queen Elizabeth II looks more like an average 84-year-old than the head of a royal family at the Royal Windsor Horse Show. Where are the jewels, the pizazz? Even that soldier in the background is serving it better than she is. [Windsor, England, 5/14/10] Keep reading »

Prince William And Kate Middleton (Maybe) Set A Wedding Date

A friend with a big mouth just spilled some major royal beans! Prince William is allegedly going to marry his longtime love, Kate Middleton, in June 2012, right after his 30th birthday. The couple’s friend, Jules Knight of the band, Blake, told British magazine The People that William would like to focus on his military duties as a RAF pilot for the next three years and Kate supports that plan. “She’s mentioned Blake might be able to perform at the wedding, which would be brilliant for us,” Knight told People. Hmm, maybe not after you told a gossip mag their secret wedding plans, dude.

Oh, well, the Heir is as good as married, but the Spare‘s still a free agent. Which scion of the British aristocracy would you rather bone? [People.co.uk] Keep reading »

Were The Gifts Obama Gave The Pope Better Than The Gifts He Gave The Queen?

The Obamas are in Europe this week for the G-8 summit, and while in Italy, the president met Pope Benedict for the first time. As is custom for visiting world leaders, the Pope and the American prez exchanged presents.

This reminds us of the time that Obama brought presents when he and the First Lady met the Queen of England. That got us wondering: were the gifts Obama gave the head of the Catholic Church better than the gifts he gave the head of the British monarchy?

Let’s find out! Keep reading »
