Fugs and Fabs: The Recent Looks of Princess Letizia


Every time I see photos of her, I think about the story I read over the summer that basically indicated she was over being a Princess and just went to a spa for like six weeks. And this time, I just wanted to say: But Letizia, your trench coat is AMAZING! Isn’t that enough to live for?

Well Replayed, Kate Middleton


JOAN COLLINS IS INVOLVED. I’m pretty sure you guys understand what this means to me. It’s the best thing ever. Kate appears to be having a really good time, too. I can only imagine she asked her for tips in case there comes a time when she needs to throw a drink in William’s face.

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.
