First of all, I love this pink on Kate; I loved this coat the first time she wore it. As I mentioned then, it reminds me of the time a Drunk Keifer Sutherland complimented my own hot pink coat. So, I guess in this scenario, I AM DRUNK KEIFER SUTHERLAND. Hold the phone for a moment while I go politely tackle a Christmas tree.
Okay, I’m back. I also enjoy how everyone (in the press, not here) is going to be like IT MUST BE A GIRL over this coat, even though Kate’s running pretty even in the Pink v. Blue Coat as Predictor of Baby Gender Sweepstakes and also I am pretty sure Kate isn’t trying to send any of us subliminal messages through her clothing. (Is she? If she is, I suspect the main message is, “buy another Breton tee, Jessica,” and I have got that one down.) Anyway, re: baby gender, the official story is that she and Wills don’t even know, and I buy that, because that way you’d be WAY less likely to accidentally spill the beans to your green grocer or whatever. (I DO however think it’s a girl and my choice of name has been Alice FOR MONTHS NOW and I can’t WAIT to be right. I’m going to be SO annoying about it. That said, if it IS a boy, that’s also lovely because yay babies.)
PS: While I’ve got you here, an audience for whom this is hopefully of interest, you are probably aware of this, but The Royal We finally comes out a week from Tuesday, and we’re doing a giveaway right now that you might want to enter! (BookPage just said, “readers should prepare to lose their hearts to The Royal We,a loving satire that is scandalously funny and wonderfully romantic,” if that sways you one way or the other. To the coats!)
