Get ready for a very obvious Sound of Music joke. You’ll know it when you get there.

Let’s see, what else happened this week? It’s VERY slow out there. Harry and Meghan and Archie allegedly went to Mallorca for her birthday but I believe they are back now; the Cambridges are lolling around the house throwing frozen grapes in each other’s mouths (I assume); the Spanish royals are trying to figure out how to turn off the chocolate fountain before they go out (also in Mallorca); and Maxima’s probably buying and selling a series of ever-larger hats on Poshmark. That all sounds super, but leave the house, y’all!!

It was Princess Anne’s birthday, and we celebrated by re-running this post about her many years of skepticism and foxiness.  As I said on Twitter, I hope she celebrated by kicking Prince Andrew in the shins.

Elsewhere on the Internet:

V. interesting, at the Telegraph: Anne Boleyn’s nursery for the male child that was never born to be explored for first time. Poor Anne.

Also at the Telegraph: At 69, Princess Anne’s country-chic look and penchant for re-wearing couldn’t be more on trend

At the New York Times: ‘Diana,’ a Musical, Is Heading to Broadway. I expect a full report, New Yorkers!

At The Cut: How the Royals Are Handling the Prince Andrew–Jeffrey Epstein Allegations. In short: Poorly! I didn’t expect them to do anything — Andrew’s always maintained his innocence — but I definitely don’t think the Queen should have taken him with her to church on Sunday. However, he and Fergie did leave Balmoral as soon as Philip showed up; presumably due to Philip’s roiling hatred of Fergs, but perhaps also because Philip is super-steamed. Were I in charge, my advice would be for Andrew to LAY LOW for like…several months. I guess he and Fergs are now also in Mallorca. Fergie is apparently really excited to stand by her man. Oh, Fergie. Fergie Fergie Fergie. The Yorks are….really….doing things.

The Cambridges and Sussexes are coming up to Balmoral shortly; Katie Nicholl reports on everyone’s accommodations. (News-wise this is sort of a non-story. The Cambridges are staying in the same cottage — “cottage” — they stay in every time they’re there; it literally belongs to Wills. No one even knows if these visits will be concurrent! Logistics-wise, it’s very interesting though. So many outfit changes!)

And, in social media:
