Royals Round-Up, January 23rd, 2015


I am beginning to think that Maxima’s resolution for 2015 was “wear the heaviest necklaces possible.” That plus TERRIFYING CLOWNS, good sunglasses, and a couple of amazing coats. COATS!

Here at GFY this week, Kate popped out for three engagements in a light blue coat and a patterned frock and OBVIOUSLY WE COVERED IT.

And elsewhere:

Thank God we have the RETURN OF COATS! Or, technically, one coat. But it’s a cute coat. (It’s clearly a cousin of this coat. I just thought to myself, “self, you probably need a light blue coat!” SELF, YOU ALREADY HAVE ONE. Get a grip.)

Per Various Sources, apparently it came out at one of these events that (a) She and Wills don’t know the gender of this baby, either (we were just talking about this in the last Kate post; I think it’s a girl, and I’m calling it now, so when I get this fifty/fifty guess right, I can gloat) and (b) apparently the kid is moving around all the time. I look forward to future events when Baby Cambridge Two and Baby Cambridge One are just flailing their limbs at each other and need to be forcibly separated.

Royals Round-Up, January 16, 2015


Greetings! After a long week dealing with the Golden Globes, we are back to the warm and loving embrace of Royals Round-Up. I have Harry! I have Kate! I have a woman in a tiara cradling a cat! I have elephants! I HAVE EVERYTHING.

Here at GFY, in case you missed it:

I have much goodness from elsewhere for you, as well:

I think this shift is EXTREMELY cute — I would wear it myself, and the only baby I am gestating is made of tacos. I might wish for merely the lower set of flaps (they seem like pocket flaps to me, and no one puts four pockets on her shift dress unless she’s trying to invent the frock version of cargo shorts), but that’s a nitpick on my point. PS: Thanks for reminding me that I need to buy tights, Kate.

(PS: If you are reading this, and you don’t already know this, I think you will care: We revealed the cover (and the plot) of our new book, The Royal We, and we are giving away three advanced copies. The contest ruins through Sunday night. I promise I won’t mention this in every post I write until April, but YOU GUYS in especial particular, I think, would want to know about it, if somehow you missed the post over the beginning of the week [I don't know your life!]. BOOK PLUG COMPLETED, and back to Kate.)

Royals Round-Up, January 9th, 2015


The first Royals Round-Up of the new year! I hope I didn’t miss anything that happened over the last couple of weeks. I’ve got babies for you! (I mean, to look at. You don’t need to take them home or anything.) Harry in a tee shirt! A visit from a variety of Japanese princesses! Tiaras!

Speaking of the last few weeks, we did have some royals coverage over the break:

And elsewhere around the Internet, we have A LOT TO DISCUSS:

Royally Played: Christmas at Sandringham


In which Princess Beatrice wins The Coat Sweepstakes, but Royal Hand-Holding is Once Again Allowed. With bonus Prince Harry Leaping Over a Fence and Making Friends With Animals. Apparently also with Rampant Capital Letters.
