It’s the struggle each woman faces while out.

What should I do with my cardigan/blazer/jacket?

I was too warm while wearing it, but now I’ve taken it off and I’m cold.  But I know in a few minutes I’ll be too warm again.

She might not yet be two, but Princess Charlotte endured this struggle today at a children’s party for military families in Victoria, Canada.  Continue reading

The Crown: Netflix Releases Brand New Trailer For Its Most Expensive Series Yet

Netflix

Today, the second official trailer for Netflix’s original series, The Crown was released, delving further into the early days of Elizabeth II’s reign.

The preview opens in February 1952  with a royal aide asking Her Majesty what her “regnal name” will be as monarch.

“Let’s not overcomplicate matters unnecessarily,” Elizabeth, played fantastically by Claire Foy, said brusquely.

It was a somber moment, since Elizabeth’s promotion meant that her father, King George VI had passed away at the family’s Sandringham estate.

Watching live CTV coverage of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s arrival in Victoria, Canada was exciting AF.

Sure, it was a little less exciting than their inaugural visit back in 2011, when the newlyweds – nay – everyone was basking in a post-royal wedding glow.

Fast forward five years, and there are two kids added into the mix.

These photos may have been taken four years ago, but they will always reflect an Olympic spectator’s mood.

How do you feel?  Are you nervous?  Frustrated? Can you not stand to look?

Wonderful, there’s a photo for that.

Since the Duchess of Cambridge opted not to attend the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics (one cannot blame her, since Zika virus is a real threat), we instead must bookmark this page for a guide on how to feel when your favorite athlete is going for the gold.

Go ahead, bookmark this page.  I’ll wait.

Ready?

Take your mark..GO!

5 Ridiculous Tabloid Covers That Declared William and Kate King and Queen

Redbook

If I’ve learned anything from glancing over the weekly rags, it’s that gold stickers are a fantastic way to trick people into thinking a headline is real.

Henceforth, I daren’t believe a word any publication states unless it’s stamped with a gold sticker (are you listening, Simon Perry?).

Every story is the same – Prince Charles is being skipped over in favor of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge for the British throne because Queen Elizabeth said so!  Camilla is jealous AF and swears she will exact revenge on the beautiful Duchess for messing up her plans to rule over the kingdom!

My favorite part of these tabloid covers is the placement a tiara atop Catherine’s head (bless Photoshop).  And each cover will almost always show Prince William in his Colonel of the Irish Guards uniform (because that’s very regal-looking, no?).  Continue reading

Milliner Juliette Botterill Knows How To Make a Hat POP (Just Ask Eug and Bea)

We the People of the United States need to take a page from the mother country and start wearing hats on special occasions.

I’m not talking about gluing toys on a wide-brim hat and taking it to the races.  I’m talking about beautifully crafted objects of art that sit daintily atop one’s head.

One milliner who recently caught my attention does just that.  London-based Juliette Botterill worked for uber-famous designer Philip Treacy before breaking out on her own.

Now, her pieces are worn by Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice,  Autumn Phillips, as well as for the house of Ralph & Russo.

Oooh, and Botterill’s dandy hat candy is stocked at London’s jewel of a department store, Fortnum & Mason. Continue reading

Rare are the occasions we see a royal partake in manual labor (save for Princes William and Harry).

Today, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series on the Solent, a straight that separates the Isle of Wight from mainland England.

Catherine is patron of the 1851 Trust, a charity run by sailing champ Sir Ben Ainslie that aims to get youths involved in the sport.

Today, wearing her Land Rover BAR polo, skinny jeans, Kiki McDonough’s “Lauren” gold leaf earrings and Monsoon wedges, Catherine met some of its members in Portsmouth.  Continue reading

Normally the Duchess of Cambridge is behind the lens, but this time she and Prince William hired photographer Matt Porteous to snap George at Anmer Hall, the family’s home in Norfolk, England.

One photo from the set has the Royal Society For The Prevention of Cruelty To Animals concerned.
