Fugger: Wills and Kate

BAFTAs Fugs and Fabs: The Lightbox Purge


Behold, everyone else! Lots of celebs skipped this event — no Jennifer Lawrence (she’s filming Mockingjay), no Julia Roberts (for obvious family reasons), no Sandra Bullock (don’t know why) — but there’s still plenty to ogle.

Fugs and Fabs of Assorted Royals


We took a close look at Kate’s other outing this week, but she went out AGAIN, and other Royals left the house too, bless them. Blue suits! Cheering! DJing! Public transport! Shovels! Potential public arguments!

Well Replayed: Kate Middleton


Rumor did have it that Kate was going to be wearing more jewels, and bingo. That necklace is huge. Want the deets on it? It’s Elizabeth’s, it’s called the Nizam of Hyderabad necklace, it came with a matching tiara, and — this is all per The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor and What Kate Wore, which are great resources for Kate-watchers and lovers of things royal — it was a wedding gift, made by Cartier, from the Nizam of Hyderabad (Hyderabad has quite an interesting history, a wormhole of which I just fell into, and its Nizam had very glittery taste).  I just like the idea of walking into your grandmother-in-law’s necklace closet and hearing her say, “how about this old thing from the Nizam of Hyderabad? You can have this, Kate, if you wear slightly longer skirts now and then.” And Kate is like, “….fine, we can make that work.”

Fugs and Fabs and Fines: A Royal Omnibus


Kate and George were in Mustique for the week for her mother’s birthday (he’s gotten so big! And that is the body language of a woman who has lugged that baby around a lot; you can tell someone’s comfortable with the child in question when she’s toting him like a bag of flour. I have a picture of myself holding one of Heather’s kids at just a little bit older in the exact same fashion except he happens to be reaching for a bottle of beer. CAN YOU IMAGINE THE SCANDAL? [I didn't give it to him]), but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t check in on a variety of royal or quasi-royal personages. Also includes cute puppies and a look at one of Camilla’s dining rooms.

Well Played, Probably Literally: Wills and Harry On The Football Pitch


Just a little holiday grunting, kicking, and sweating. Is this gratuitous? Let’s face it: Yes. But does that mean you don’t want to see the princes getting down and dirty with the Sandringham estate workers and local villagers? No.

Happy Holiday, From the Royals


I feel like they haven’t looked this jolly as a group in a while. People are wearing hats! Kate and Wills are holding hands! Harry is holding his beard!

PS: There was behind-the-scenes footage of Prince George’s christening in the Queen’s Christmas Speech, if you want to take a peek.
