Fugger: Wills and Kate

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:

Interesting and intriguing items elsewhere include:

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.

Royally Played: Wills, Kate and Harry Pointing at Things in Belgium

We covered this event earlier, and I promised that I would not be derelict nor derelicte in my duties in showing you the rest of the day’s goings-on, if people changed. Well, the only person who changed was Harry — out of his uniform, and into this suit. But who I am to deny you a suit, especially given that I am publishing this post randomly in the middle of the night when I am supposed to be working on other stuff? Because it seems like a portion of events involved People Pointing Indiscriminately At Things, and you know how I feel about pointing.

Royally Played: Wills and Kate and Harry at the World War I Centenary in Belgium

With bonus appearances from the Belgian royals, of course, given that they’re hosting these particular events marking the beginning of World War I.  The truth is that Queen Mathilde looks fab and I think Kate only looks fine. Whereas Harry looks foine whilst he scampers about another part of Belgium, so everything evens out for the Brits. (William is wearing metallic capri-length leggings and yet another sweater with a cat on it, so whoever had that in Royals Bingo, mark your playing card.)

[Programming note: The three of them are reuniting for an evening event, and I will not be derelict (nor derelicte) in my duty to bring that to you later if clothes are changed.]

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

We saw them yesterday, but I must confess I have added ADDITIONAL CANOODLING photos from yesterday to this post, because I want you to be happy. Today, you will also be happy to know that William’s pants are way more reasonable. There is also much brotherly in-fighting and harassment, balls are levitated, Usain Bolt pops up, high-fives are handed out, and Kate is forced to leap over three UNICEF donation cans or they won’t renew her Duchess license next year.

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.
