Kate has four days of events this week, so STRAP IN, ROYALS WATCHERS, and don’t say that I, like Taylor Swift,  didn’t warn you. But let’s just start with this one. If Kate’s coat looks familiar, it’s because she wore it for Trooping the Color last time she was pregnant, AKA that time she cruelly refused to give Harry a high-five. Her hat, on the other hand, is new and it kind of reminds me of what an artistically talented child would do with his scrap paper at the back of a class in which he is SUPPOSED to be learning polynomials but in which he instead decided to try his hand at origami and now I’ll never unsee that. (Although, wherever she is [I assume…somewhere in The Netherlands], I feel like Queen Maxima is all, “did someone say ‘origami’? I AM IN. W-A, hand me my phone, I am texting Kate to find out where she got that hat RIGHT NOW.”) And now that I’ve said that, I assume Kate will also refuse to high-five ME. I deserve it.

(PS: It seemed pertinent to mention in this particular post that today is the last day to enter the Goodreads giveaway of The Royal We, if you’re in the US and interested in possibly winning a signed galley of our new book! Okay, that business taken care of, let’s get on with it.)
