Prince William and Kate Are Expecting Their Second Child!


You guys.  You must know by now what a complete Royal Dork I am…so any good news like a new baby on the way will always makes me squeal.  In a statement, Clarence House issued the following announcement. 

“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their second child,” said the official announcement Monday morning. 

“The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news.

As with her first pregnancy, The Duchess is suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum. Her Royal Highness will no longer accompany The Duke of Cambridge on their planned engagement in Oxford today. The Duchess of Cambridge is being treated by doctors at Kensington Palace.”


UGH! Bless Kate’s heart.  Some women’s bodies HATE being pregnant, and mine was one of them, too.  Yeah. My first (Royal!) son, Alexander weighed 7 lbs. 15 oz.–and I weighed 134 lbs. (5’7″)  AT DELIVERY . Bleh. I really feel for poor Kate.


I wonder how Prince George of Side-Eye will react when the new baby arrives…

Congratulations to William and Kate!


Let’s Discuss William, Kate and Prince George Alexander Louis

Kate, Will and the new Prince!

I’ll say it right off the git, so you remember: I’m a Royal Dork, and I make NO APOLOGIES for my love of William, Kate and their new baby. Got that? Let’s move on, then.

Two things first, where are the names COSMO and JEROME? I’ll give you a few seconds to ponder that…


Okay. I LOVE THE NAME. George Alexander Louis. My fingers were crossed for Alexander as the Prince’s first name, but I was also hoping for George. (In fact, my darling Cynthia and I predicted the name early last evening.) When hearing “George” with an English accent, it is completely different than hearing say, George Costanza in our harsh American accent. (Are we on the same page yet?)


Let’s all just take this in for a moment. I love tradition, I love the “fairy-tale” of this couple and I pray life goes smoothly for them.

Topless Photos of Duchess Kate Middleton Cause Royal Frenzy

OhdearLort.  Here we go again.  William and Kate‘s privacy was invaded during a holiday in the South of France by paparazzi who literally got the “money shots” of a topless Kate.  Those photos are slapped all over a French magazine called, Closer.

St. James’s Palace has confirmed that the topless pictures are of Kate and issued a Royal Statement:

“Their Royal Highnesses have been hugely saddened to learn that a French publication and a photographer have invaded their privacy in such a grotesque and totally unjustifiable manner.

“The incident is reminiscent of the worst excesses of the press and paparazzi during the life of Diana, Princess of Wales, and all the more upsetting to The Duke and Duchess for being so.

“Their Royal Highnesses had every expectation of privacy in the remote house. It is unthinkable that anyone should take such photographs, let alone publish them.

“Officials acting on behalf of Their Royal Highnesses are consulting with lawyers to consider what options may be available to The Duke and Duchess.

“The Duke and Duchess remain focused currently on their Tour of Singapore, Malaysia, Solomon Islands and Tuvalu on behalf of HM The Queen.”

Naturally, Closer editor Laurence Pieau saw no harm in running the photos whatsoever!

“These photos are not in the least shocking. They show a young woman sunbathing topless, like the millions of women you see on beaches.”

I think Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge would beg to differ.

What are your thoughts?  Is this Princess Diana all over again? Should Kate have “known better”? Both? Give us your thoughts…
