Fugger: Wills and Kate

Royally Played: Wills, Kate and Harry at the Commonwealth Games


QUICK: What did you think Kate wore to a sporting event? Jeans, a blue blazer, a (very subtly) blue-and-white striped top and great hair? YOU ARE CORRECT.

PS: William’s in The Dreaded Casual Pant.

PPS: Harry’s there, too.

PPPS: There’s minor canoodling.

Royally Well-Played: Prince George, THE YEAR ONE


It is his birthday. I can only assume you’ve seen the new photos they’ve released in celebration; here’s the solo shot, and here are the snaps with Kate and William and Butterflies Precariously Clinging to Life In The Face of a Marauding Toddler. With all that new jazz out of the way, let’s take an exhaustive look back at the 3rd in line. NOW, PLEASE. THANK YOU. WHY ISN’T THERE CAKE?

(PS: If you ever find yourself wishing you could look at imperious babies demanding things politely, all of our Prince George coverage lives here.)

Royally Played: Prince George’s First Birthday Official Pics, Part Two


I assume you have already checked out George’s first official pic — if not GO THERE NOW PLEASE — but here are the other two Official Happy First Birthday snaps, in which, among other things, my blistering curiosity about Kate’s green Suzannah dress is finally given¬†some minor satisfaction:

Prince-George-First-Birthday-Will-Kate (1)

First: This is all extremely charming and gives me feelings in my heart. Second: Kate is revealing that dress in frustratingly tiny pieces, like a burlesque dancer slowly peeling away the boring bits to get to the exciting part. Kate, stop hiding behind babies and plants like an actress concealing her pregnancy on a 90s sitcom, because you’re making it so hard for us to ogle your outfit! I mean, I guess the outfit is not the point of this particular exercise. But still. As for William: you can tell in Photo Two below that he wore His Hideous Dad Pants to this shoot, so THANK YOU for hiding those, Wills, you truly are a treasure. (I like to think that Kate was like, “ooh, darling, why don’t you stand behind that plant right there? FABULOUS. No, no, don’t move. I will bring the baby to you. I SAID DON’T MOVE.”)

As for baby, well, come on. Who can resist Prince Squashyface McNoodleThighs? He’s at a Butterfly Spectacle! He is a Butterfly Spectacle. Here’s the second shot, which thankfully does at least give me some Forearm (you know my feelings on forearms and babies in the same visual field):

After this, I can only assume the butterfly was eaten. HAPPY BIRTHDAY AND THANK YOU.

Royals Round-Up: July 18, 2014


This is an EXTRA FAT Royals Round-Up, and it does have everything: Harry in polo pants! William pointing at airplanes and attempting tennis and planting things with children! Princess Estella of Sweden being extremely cute! Morocco! Trophies! Cheese! Sunglasses! Belgian children being totally disinterested in their family vacation!

While Kate And Others were Mostly Inside this week, I do bring glad tidings:¬† The I Wanna “Marry “Harry” recaps ARE BACK!

“You may be wondering why I’ve called this meeting of Blue Suits Anonymous. But it’s to discuss the events of this weekend and how we can prevent them from ever, ever reoccurring.”
