Today's Evil Beet Gossip
Kate Middleton

Kate Middleton is the Duchess of Side Eye too, I see

kate middleton prince william

As we all know, Prince William and Kate Middleton were over in New York City this past week for the first time, and what an adventure it was! They went to a basketball game, they met American royalty, Queen Beyoncé and King Jay-Z and a good time was had by all.

BUT THEN… Kate went to do some Christmas present wrapping for the children’s charity Northside Center for Child Development in Harlem, where she got to come face-to-face with some real New Yorkers who told her royal ass not to slow down but to “Keep wrapping!”

Clearly Kate didn’t take all that kindly to this, and she unleashed the side-eye of the year:

Hahaha! Frankly, I’m on Kate’s side with this one. She has to be SO NICE all the friggin’ time, 24/7/365, constantly smiling and shaking hands and playing the role of the perfectly mannered princess. She deserved the right to give side-eye there. She’s a Duchess AND she’s pregnant – plus, who is that lady talking to? I’m not even in the royal family and I’d have given the woman more than side eye if she was yelling at me like that. Point for Middleton here.

Also, because I like to give you guys more bang for your buck, here’s another tidbit: Kate clearly reads Evil Beet and saw my comment the other day about wanting to kick back in your pyjamas and watch TV and eat pizza, because she totally had a pizza party in her hotel room!

From US Weekly:

The insider tells Us the royal, who was taking a break before the St. Andrews 600th Anniversary dinner at the Met Museum, ordered “three very specific pizzas” from NYC eatery Serafina, which included “a spicy sausage pizza (with no mushroom) and a prosciutto “di Fabio” pizza (with no sliced tomatoes).”

The five-months pregnant duchess shared the delicacies with a Kensington Palace assistant, her private secretary Rebecca Deacon and hairstylist Amanda Cook-Tucker while she prepared for her evening engagement.

Huh. I mean, neither of those sound all that delicious to me – maybe the sausage one? And high five on no mushrooms. Mushrooms do not belong on pizza. The end.

Beyonce and Jay-Z met Kate Middleton and Prince William

It’s kind of a Big Deal that the future King and Queen of England (shut up, she’s MY queen!) are in New York City right now. While here, Prince William and Kate Middleton have been taking in the sites in between doing official business-y things (Will got to talk to Obama about illegal wildlife trading and Kate has visited a few children’s centers), and one of those things was hitting up a basketball game at the Barclay’s Center. Seeing a real live basketball game may have been exciting on its own, but Wills & Kate got a double dose of fun when they met none other than Jay-Z and Beyoncé! Or is it the other way around?

There’s even video (a Vine, really, but we’ll take it):


It all seems very exciting. I wonder if Bey was shitting herself? She might be the biggest star in the world, but Wills & Kate are actual royalty! Forget whether or not the monarchy is dumb or an outdated concept (I personally think it’s a wonderful tradition and their “job” is to uphold that tradition and also to do great public service work – they don’t make laws or whatever, so chill, world) – it’s a big deal.

Also also, would you EVER want to have Kate Middleton’s life? I sure as shit wouldn’t. She’s pregnant, which probably makes all this hub bub of travel and public appearances even worse, but even if she wasn’t pregnant, wouldn’t you get sick of all of the to-do? Wouldn’t you just wanna be like, “Wills, can we not just lay on the couch and watch Home Alone and order a pizza?” Something tells me that just doesn’t happen at the Palace.

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!

prince william kate middleton prince george

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!
