Let’s get into this, y’all.
In case you missed any of the royal outings this week, of which there were many:
Meghan rejected neutrals for a day!
We rounded up a variety of red coats similar to hers.
Kate put on a tweedy jacket and made pizza with kids.
Meghan was VERY SPARKLY at Cirque du Soleil.
Elsewhere on the internet:
Prince Philip was in a car accident yesterday, but is allegedly fine even though his Land Rover overturned. Damn, dude! Everyone is lucky to have emerged from that alive. (Also, there were a lot of headlines that were like PHILIP BREATHALYZED AT SCENE!!!! and it’s….because that’s the law in the UK when there’s an accident. No one was DWI.) I also read a more expansive BBC piece where they talked to the man on the scene who helped and it made me chuckle when he specified that Philip didn’t say anything rude at any time.) [BBC, People]
Meghan got snapped out and about in London this week and I really want a better look at her jeans. (I always REALLY feel Meghan’s off-duty wear. We Los Angelenos love our jeans.) [Meghan’s Mirror]
The DMIK has more deets on the person with whom she was out and about — KP’s new deputy press secretary. Apparently the rumors of splitting up the Sussexes and Cambridges offices possibly exaggerated?
Hello! reports that Harry and Meghan….brace yourself…sent TWO CHRISTMAS CARDS!!!! (This new one has a pic from their royal tour.)
Town & Country asks What Was Queen Victoria Like as a Mother? Spoiler: NOT GREAT. (I knew this from The Heir Apparent, which is an excellent read.) If ever there were a Queen who could have thrived with modern birth control methods at her disposal, it was Vic. (I mean, also probably all the rest of them, but you feel me.)
T&C is also like OMG ENOUGH WITH THIS NAIL POLISH PROTOCOL BULLSHIT.
And in social media developments:
Anne is hard at work!
Camilla is bestowing degrees:
Chaz put on a kilt:
Rania wore a good coat:
Crown Princess Victoria is out looking reasonable:
These are very thematic hats for a vacation to the US:
