Don’t come around Prince William and Kate Middleton in casual wear

prince william kate middleton

Americans are freaking out because Prince William and Kate Middleton (who seems to be in a better place with her second pregnancy now) are making their FIRST trip to New York City (well, at least in an official capacity) next month. How exciting! Even though we created an entire war to break free from our British roots, as a nation we’re now obsessed with our parents across the pond and can’t get enough of them, especially the royal family.

Getting any access at all to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge is a massive honour, and only a limited amount of press have been given the privilege. However, there’s been some amount of uproar (tiny murmurs of an uproar) since the British Monarchy has given official guidelines on how all who come anywhere near Wills & Kate – even down to the lowly service people – should be dressed at all times.

Journalists wishing to cover Royal engagements, whether in the United Kingdom or abroad, should comply with the dress code on formal occasions out of respect for the guests of The Queen, or any other member of the Royal Family.

Smart attire for men includes the wearing of a jacket and tie, and for women a trouser or skirt suit. Those wearing jeans or trainers will not be admitted and casually dressed members of the media will be turned away. This also applies to technicians.

I feel like this is probably directed specifically towards Americans (it’s listed on the website as just being for any engagement the royal family undertakes), because the Brits see us as a bit sloppy and unkempt (as someone who spends a lot of time there, trust me on this). However, I don’t know any serious journalist worth his or her salt – and you’ll have to be, to have been approved access for this – who would turn up in jeans and a ripped t-shirt or whatever.

That being said, this requirement might be slightly more unreasonable/uncomfortable for technicians, whose job requires them to run here, there and everywhere and doesn’t really lend itself to formalwear. Ah, well. The price you pay for royalty!

Kate Middleton Having A Hard Time With Second Pregnancy

Kate+Middleton

Poor Kate Middleton. She’s pregnant again and is again having a really hard time at it. According to People, she has hyperemesis gravidarum, which is, “a severe form of pregnancy sickness.” Here’s more:

Prince William may have stepped in for his pregnant wife, Kate, on a visit to Malta, but she was on everyone’s mind as he toured the sun-kissed island on Saturday.

William, 32, was walking near St. George’s Square in the capital of Valletta when one of the hundreds of people who’d turned up to see him asked about his wife, who’s expecting the couple’s second child and suffering from severe pregnancy sickness.

“She’s so-so, she’s up and down at the moment,” he told Sandra Lant, 70, who was visiting the holiday island from Suffolk, England.

Okay, but wait, this next part is my favorite:

Some were disappointed that she wasn’t there. “A lot of the locals I have spoken to have said: ‘Who’s William?’ ” said Sue Wilding, 74, from Kennilworth in Warwickshire, England. “I think they would have preferred to have seen Kate.”

BWUAHAHA. Are you serious? People know Kate more than they know Prince William? That can’t POSSIBLY be true.

Ladies who were pregnant, how was your pregnancy? Was it awful like Kate’s, or did you glide through it, like a perfect little swan? Do tell!

Harry thinks royal baby #2 is a one big joke

prince harry

Prince William and Kate Middleton have been forced to procreate a second time (seriously, I can’t imagine Kate in particular would be so keen to get pregnant again already, especially considering how awful her first pregnancy was) and the one person who’s sitting back laughing is Prince Harry. It’s all one big joke to Harry. Life’s a party, eh?

From People:

Harry was smiling at an Invictus Games training session for athletes when he joked, “I can’t wait to see my brother suffer more” with the arrival of a second child.

And if the Duke and Duchess have a girl this time, Harry quips that he would “love to see him try and cope with that.”

After welcoming wounded and injured soldiers to compete in the sports event that he helped to create, Harry, 29, continued to comment on the pregnancy news, this time in a more serious tone.

“I hope the two of them have the opportunity to go through the process again with a little bit of peace and quiet,” he said, adding that sister-in-law Kate was feeling “pretty poorly” from morning sickness, but “doing the best she can.”

I said it the other day and I’ll say it again: I hope they have a girl! Just because it would be adorable. Harry also thinks that Prince George will love being a big brother. We’ll see about that!

Kate Middleton and Prince William are expecting their second child!

Well, that didn’t take long. Less than 18 months after giving birth to Prince George, it seems that Kate Middleton and Prince William are expecting their second child. Hurrah!

Here’s what royal officials said in a statement:

“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their second child. The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news.”

Here’s hoping this second pregnancy is a little easier for Kate – she had a really hard time and was pretty ill for much of the first time around. Also, I hope it’s a girl – then they’ll have the perfect little family (and they can also avoid another William/Harry situation). Yay!

HAPPY EASTER FROM THE ROYALS (AND SNOOP DOGG)!

roya-family

Happy Easter, everyone! Or should I say…HOPPY EASTER? (No, I won’t.) Please enjoy this photo of baby Prince George with mum and dad, Kate Middleton and Prince William

And guess what? The little creature he’s looking at is also named George, after him! From E!:

The third in line to the throne got up close and personal with the three-and-a-half-year-old creature as the royal family officially opened the new Prince George Bilby Exhibit. The nocturnal marsupial, which is indigenous to Australia and an endangered species, was named after the tiny prince two months ago.

How bout that.

So what is everyone doing on this big holiday? And also Easter? (Ha, see what I did there?) Let’s check in on Snoop Dogg and see how his Easter is going. He posted this on Twitter:

So, two very different Easter Sundays, then.

Cheers!

Prince George is getting so big!

Kate Middleton and Prince William shared a new family snapshot this weekend with an adorable Prince George and dog Lupo. How big is George getting already?!

The photo is apparently taken through the window of their apartment, Apartment 1A, at Kensington Palace. Photographer Jason Bell – no stranger to shooting the royals – is behind the picture, and I think it’s really adorable.

Also, why is Kate Middleton so flawless? It’s just not fair.
