Maxima might have worn her BIGGEST! BROOCH! YET! this week.
If you missed it earlier this week, Kate gave us Sassy Business Duchess, and the Cambridges took George and Charlotte to the SoccerFootball, with cute results.
FYI, Wills and Kate’s trip to Pakistan starts on Monday. We will, of course, have full coverage.
The big Royal News this week is that all the little kids in the Swedish royal family who AREN’T Estelle and Oscar (AKA, the children of the heir) have had their royal titles stripped. (Their “Royal Highness”es — they’re still to be called Prince and Princess, but it’s not inheritable.) You know Charles is calling everyone he knows over in Sweden to see if he can do this to siblings. [People]
This cracks me up, at Town and Country: Helena Bonham Carter Had a Psychic Ask Princess Margaret If It Was OK to Play Her in The Crown.
Also at T&C: Princess Beatrice’s Wedding Will Reportedly Be Privately Funded. That seems for the best.
Apparently, Jessica Mulroney is getting a CTV/Netflix show. [Real Screen]
Aw, James Middleton is engaged. Mazel tov to the happy couple! [Vanity Fair]
In social media hoo-ha:
The Cambridges/Sussexes are doing lots of mental health stuff this week, which is great:
