Royals Round-Up Round-Up: The Other Brits, 2014


Are you looking for LOADS of pictures of Wills and Kate and Harry and George? Because that’s here. Are you looking for a collection of snaps of Letizia and Crown Princess Mary and Maxima and other attractive European royals? Because they are over here! Are you thinking, “but what I’m really looking for are pictures of the British Royal Family that doesn’t involve any of Prince Charles’s off-spring but DO include Prince Charles himself and also his wife and all the rest of his relatives”? You are in the right place.

Royals Round-Up Round-Up: The (Mostly) Euros, 2014


The European royals BROUGHT US SOME HATS in 2014. I hope 2015 is an All Turban year, myself.  Come on, Letizia. You KNOW you want to go full turban. You’re queen. YOU CAN DO WHATEVER YOU WANT.

(We also took a very long look back at Wills and Kate and George and Harry’s 2014, which you can find HERE. The rest of the Brits will get their turn later.)

Are you ready to look at some Royals Christmas Cards? Because I have some to show you. (They were not sent to ME.) I also bring you an enormous stuffed goose, Dominic West, Brianne of Tarth, and William wearing his eyeglasses.

We had three Royals-y pieces here at GFY for you this week, namely:

Royally Played: Prince Harry


At the beginning of the month, Harry went to Lesotho, Africa, to visit his charity project there, which provides a variety of help — education, healthcare — to kids who’ve been orphaned by the AIDS crisis in the country (which is quite severe; one in three kids in Lesotho is an orphan). A) This is a serious and important cause, and good on him for being, from what I can tell from behind my computer all the way across the world, wearing yoga pants and sticking Peppermint Joe Joe’s into my maw, really committed to it.  Harry has really done a lot of Good Works this year, both with this charity and all his work with veterans and the Invictus Games and whatnot. I can but assume his Gran will sneak an extra orange into the bottom of his stocking this Christmas as a reward. B) Not to take away from these pertinent and important issues, but these kids are extremely cute and the pictures from this trip are really great and extremely forearm-y. (One can be interested in Important Issues and admire people’s forearms whilst they gambol with adorable children. We all contain multitudes.)
