Fugger: Wills and Kate

Royals Round-Up, September 12, 2014


SO MUCH TO DISCUSS THIS WEEK. Well, mostly that Wills and Kate are having another baby! (Um, but Prince Harry got a good waxwork? That’s a good gift to the world, also.) There’s loads of Brits in the slideshow, but also I bring you Maxima! Letizia! Crown Princess Mary! And the following:

Royally Well Played: Wills and Kate


We’re having another Royal Baby! Per the official announcement, “Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their second child. The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news.”  I imagine they all look like this right now:

Olympics Day 6 - Cycling - Track

Lanyards and all. Wills AND Kate were expected at an event at Oxford today, but the statement also notes that Kate’s got Hyperemesis Gravidarum again (she’s not in the hospital this time; they’re treating her at Kensington Palace), so it’s just going to be him. One of you pop out to that event and high five him for Fug Nation, okay?

ALSO, if you’re bored, you can always revisit our look back at all her maternity wear from her first pregnancy. We’re going to get SO MANY COATS this time.

Who Played It Better: Holland Roden v. Kate Middleton


Sorry to be dipping back into the Emmys well, but eagle-eyed Fug National Esther pointed out that Holland Roden sported a dress at an Emmys post-party that looks rather similar to a fairly famous dress previously seen on the Duchess of Cambridge, and I thought you might enjoy a Sleepy Friday Compare and Contrast. And by “you,” I mean Kate herself, who I assume is reading this right now whilst on vacation, muttering around a mouthful of takeaway while William tries to keep George from falling into the loch.

I'm not seriously putting this up to a vote.

Royals Round-Up, August 22, 2014


Have you been wondering what the royals of the world are up to? Let me tell you: NOTHING. Well, that’s not totally accurate. They’re all on vacation and none of them are leaving the house, so we are free to IMAGINE what they are doing, and obviously I have done so. In my mind, Wills and Kate have taken George to Balmoral (this part is actually true, I believe) where he has destroyed nearly every one of the Queen’s priceless Faberge eggs in his unsteady reign of toddler terror, and where Kate is despairing of ever getting to catch up on her backlog of Tatler. Charles and Camilla are knee-deep in a lengthy, summer-long gin rummy tournament, the loser of which is forced to refer to the winner as My Supreme Kissyface, in public, for the rest of the year. Anne has the groundskeeper tied up in a shed and is “questioning” him vigorously. Harry stayed home and is currently trying to figure out how to get a really shocking amount of Pimm’s out of his grandmother’s rug. In Spain, Letizia and Felipe are currently arm-wrestling (the winner gets Majorca), and over in Monaco, Sven is trying to figure out how to smuggle Charlene out of the country before the baby comes, while Charlene is researching poisons…just in case. Maxima is learning how to construct her own crazy hats, and Crown Princess Mary…hey, I have pictures of Crown Princess Mary! We KNOW what CPM was up to. THANK YOU, CROWN PRINCESS MARY. Because it’s so boring this week, I’ve thrown together The Greatest Hits Of Royals Outings This Summer. Hats! Abs! David Beckham! Wills in a scuba suit! Goats! Children! Ceremony! EDWINA! (Don’t ask me what I’m going to do next week. I’ll worry about that next week.)

NOTE: Some of these photos might pop up weirdly sized for you — that’s because of our new slideshow functionality. It will be fixed!

Royals Round-Up, August 8th, 2014


In the slideshow, I bring you extra snaps from Wills, Kate, and Harry’s outings this week, lots of other WWI ceremonial events, Crown Princess Mary on a horse (they’re on vacation, and as ever, several of their snaps are embargoed for longer than I would like; I swear I am not trying to keep CPM from you, I am merely trying not to be sued), THE RETURN OF SADFACE CHARLENE, QE2 eyeballing some Men in Kilts, a peek of her Balmoral living room, and King Felipe in saucy white jeans squiring Letizia in some super sassy pants. AND MORE.

ICYMI here on GFY this week:

Royally Well Replayed: Wills and Kate and Harry at the Tower of London


This is the second half of the World War I centenary events (these three went to Belgium yesterday; also, there was much pointing, and I hope Harry at least got to have some beer), and everyone is wearing stuff we’ve already seen them in (Harry wears this tie a lot). That being said, today the trio is at the Tower of London and (a) no one, it seems, was locked in, which is always a plus, and (b) the art installation of ceramic poppies they they’re at the Tower to open is spectacular. Per the Tower of London’s official site, “created by ceramic artist Paul Cummins, with setting by stage designer Tom Piper, 888,246 ceramic poppies will progressively fill the Tower’s famous moat over the summer. Each poppy represents a British military fatality during the war.” They’re also very photogenic.
