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

Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall are on a three-day tour of Cornwall and Devon, and today they met the least impressed human in the area.

5-year-old Ella Cameron joined her father, Andy to meet the Prince of Wales (who also holds the title, Duke of Cornwall) at the Royal Navy Lifeboat Institution.

“She was really looking forward to it, mainly because she didn’t have to go to school,” Cameron told the TelegraphContinue reading

You know what? We believe him.

Yesterday, the Royal Mail released  special edition stamps to commemorate Her Majesty’s 90th birthday.

Prince George joined his living predecessors for an historic photoshoot, one that sees the future king standing atop durable foam stacks whilst holding his father’s hand.

Brilliant.

The little prince’s first stamp shoot was a true lesson in photography.  Ranald Mackechnie, the man behind the lens, had a splendid time shooting his royal subject.

“He was fascinated by my lights and all the kit, and he was quite happy standing on the blocks, Mackechnie said, according to the Telegraph.

“I took maybe 80 or 100 shots, but when I saw this one I knew straight away that was it.”  Continue reading

In Their Element: 11 Delightful Photos of Royals and Animals

It’s a well-known fact that Britain’s royal family would prefer the company of horses and dogs to humans, and several people close to the Queen have said that if she weren’t the sovereign, she’d be living a quiet life in the country.

In February, Prince William was accused of living like a “gentleman country farmer,” since he and the Duchess of Cambridge opt to spend a majority of their family life in Norfolk, 120 miles from London.

Prince Philip once famously said of his daughter, Princess Anne’s love for horses, “if it doesn’t fart or eat hay, then she isn’t interested.”

Her Majesty has owned over 30 corgis since her father gifted her with one in 1944, and still rides horses to this day (wearing a scarf instead of a helmet, despite protest from friends and family).

OK, time to look at adorable photos of  the royal family with animals.  Continue reading

Prince Charles Sings In a Kilt, Celebrates 40 Years of The Prince’s Trust

ITV

Tonight, Britan’s Got Talent hosts Ant and Dec (what America would have if Idol never fired Brian Dunkleman) hosted an anniversary special to celebrate 40 year’s of Prince Charles’ charity, The Prince’s Trust.

 

Through job training and programs designed to boost self-confidence, The Prince’s Trust has helped thousands upon thousands of young Brits to beat the odds and rise above their at-risk upbringing.

As ambassadors of the charity, Ant and Dec spent a year focusing on the work Charles has done since 1976 in helping young people to reach their potential.

 

“There are those that will say he was born into this position of privilege and he can’t possibly empathise with the normal man on the street and the issues that face the ordinary man, but I think he can,” Dec said.

Tonight’s special featured interviews with Prince Harry, Prince William and the Duchess of Cornwall, as well as those who have succeeded with the help of the Trust.  Continue reading

Did we have fun this year or what?  Let’s look back on the royal year that was:

The Duchess of Cambridge At The World Premiere of Spectre

Catherine called on one of her favorite designers, Jenny Packham to create this baby blue backless creation with an encrusted waist.

Oh, and that up do.  What does a girl need to ingest to get hair like that?

 

Her Royal Highness borrowed a pair of Robinson Pelham diamond, blue topaz and white gold earrings ($21,000)  from her mother, Carole, who first wore them to the royal wedding’s evening reception.

The 6 Greatest Royal Moments From May 2015

This past month proved to be an exciting one for both the royal family and their fans.  On May 2nd, the Cambridges welcomed Princess Charlotte of Cambridge.  A week or so later, Prince Harry charmed the pants off Australia and New Zealand.

Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall visited Ireland and Northern Ireland, which included a stop at the village of Mullaghmore, Ireland, the site where Lord Mountbatten and others were killed in 1979 when a bomb was planted on their boat.

Prior to 2015, the most exciting month on the calendar year for royal fans was April, with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding anniversary on April 29th, and Her Majesty’s birthday on the 21st.  Now, it looks like May 2015 has been one for the royal books.

Here, in no particular order, are its best moments.  Continue reading
