Of course, the big royals news of the week was Prince George’s birthday, and also of course, we covered the cake out of it:

Other things are afoot, though, and the slideshow is full of them. Letizia and Felipe went to Paris (where she looked fabulous)! Crown Princess Mary looked insanely glam in a caftan and sunglasses! Queen Mathilde of Belgium took on the Giant Hat Duties! The British royals have been cheering enthusiastically at the Commonwealth Games (QE2 appears to be having the best time; Wills and Kate and Harry are going next week, so I assume we’ll see the return of Joyful Victorious Hugs)! LIPSTICK IS APPLIED.
