Do you guys remember when we recently ran an excerpt from the new coffee table book about Queen Elizabeth, and promised we’d be giving away a copy? That day is today! But first, here’s a picture of Prince Harry wearing a fur-lined hood:
PS: If you’re interested in all things Royal, you should definitely read the interview that Celebuzz ran earlier this week with the book’s author, Jennie Bond, who’s covered the royal family for eons. She does not intend to see Diana, which I feel is true not only for royal watchers, but also Naomi Watts fans, people who are still working on their Sayid fanfic, and most living humans.
But if you’re interested in winning a copy of the book, here’s how that happens:
THE TASK: Per Getty Images, Harry isn’t just trying on the finest winter wear, he’s taking part in a training exercise with the ‘Walking with the Wounded’ 2013 British team, which is planing to race teams from the US and the Commonwealth to the South Pole next month. Next month, I plan to eat some ice cream, which is probably very similar. But while that is a very worthy cause, his saucy fur lining makes him look but one step away from a fur turban and therefore one heartbeat away from starring in his own night time soap opera. And there is your task. Prince Harry stars in a night time drama. Name that soap opera.
THE RULES: All entries must be posted in the comments of this post by 9 p.m. Pacific time on Monday. We only have one copy to give away, so give it your best shot.
THE PRIZE: Hello! I just told you. But if you need more info, per the publisher: “Completely updated to include all the Jubilee proceedings, this authoritative photographic history covers the Queen’s reign. On February 6, 1952, Princess Elizabeth, Duchess of Edinburgh, became Queen on the death of her father, King George VI. The reign that was to see major changes both in the country and Commonwealth and in the role of the monarchy began far away from Britain in a game reserve in Kenya. This book chronicles this remarkable period in the history of Britain’s monarchy in lavish and fascinating detail. The Queen has been constantly under scrutiny ever since she took the throne, and this book presents a balanced and absorbing account of her life and of her role as the head of state in a country and a world that have changed almost beyond recognition in the 60 years since she inherited the throne.” In other words: TIARAS!
