We bring you much to discuss today, Fug Nation! We’ve got patterns! We’ve got a random wedding with a great dress! There’s cheese! There’s a poorly done cape! There’s drinking! There’s pointing! There’s Meghan in a very cute leather skirt! ENJOY.
Earlier this week:
Meghan wore a purple dress (and we had muuuucccchhhhh discussion about the ITV doc).
We took a look at Kate’s entire wardrobe from the Pakistan trip!
And the new Japanese Emperor was enthroned and it was VERY interesting and also sparkly.
And we got a new trailer for The Crown – A REAL ONE, at last.
Elsewhere of potential interest:
There’s a lot of interesting Catherine the Great stuff coming out in advance of the HBO/Helen Mirren miniseries. At T&C: Grigory Potemkin and Catherine the Great Have One of History’s Greatest Love Stories
Also at Jezebel, this story has been getting a lot of play on the internet but they don’t mention that, uh, Diana’s stepmother was….very mean. Having said that, you shouldn’t push people down the stairs: Princess Diana Once Shoved Her Stepmother Down a Flight of Stairs

I am surprised to be linking to Ask a Manager in Royals Round-Up AND YET this week it was pertinent.
Even the BBC is getting into this Harry/William thing. Just two years ago, Heather and I were saying to each other that the BRF had gotten boring. WELL. Boring no more, if nothing else.
Prince Andrew continues to be gross — but I did enjoy that someone speaking out about him is GFY regular…Lady Victoria Hervey. GO LADY VIC! [Lainey]
And, over on social media:
This is NEAT:
Elizabeth I has returned to #HamptonCourtPalace. To coincide with #TheLostDress display, @pastpleasures1 have recreated Elizabeth’s dress in the famous Rainbow Portrait. With meticulous research & hand-stitching, they’ve crafted an accurate representation. https://t.co/QU5i1SRq8a pic.twitter.com/u7Zvd8RYmH

I LOVE this dress on Kate. (It’s this LK Bennett.)
Good for Edward!!!
I have no idea what’s happening here, but it’s dramatic and there’s a good cape;
Good for Euj:
