No name announcement today, I'm afraid
The newborn Princess of Cambridge has only been born for a day or so and already she is the talk of the town … er, world. Prince Harry, the newborn royal baby’s uncle, has yet to meet the little miss because he is on the other side of the planet doing his royal duties in Australia until the end of May … but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have anything to say about his newborn niece. When asked about the princess’s birth, Harry happily shared his opinion that she is “absolutely beautiful” … a sentiment that pretty much the rest of us have about the second born child of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

There's no place like palace
Just hours after we learned that Kate Middleton and Prince William welcomed the birth of their second child today and moments after we saw photos of their eldest child, Prince George, making his way into the hospital to meet the newborn princess, we learn that the royal family has already left the hospital bound for home. Prince William and Kate stepped outside the Lido Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital with baby princess in arms just a short time ago … and already home, safe and sound. We still do not know what the couple have named their baby girl but I suspect her name will be announced at some point this weekend. Considering how quickly everything is progressing with royal baby #2, we may get the next big update in about 45 seconds.
Earlier this morning, we learned the happy news that Kate Middleton and Prince William FINALLY welcomed the birth of their second child — a girl! Right now, we get to see the first photos of Prince William bringing his son Prince George to St. Mary’s Hospital to meet the newborn princess for the first time. At this point, we don’t know what the royal couple have decided to name their baby girl but I suspect we’ll get that news shortly. For now, let’s just focus on how big Prince George has grown in the extremely cute photos of him below. More »
Little Prince or Princess???
The best part about the arrival of the second royal baby has been learning that Kensington Palace has a Twitter account, and the tweets are incredible. But we’ll get to that in a minute. The Royal baby has safely arrived! Duchess Kate Middleton and Prince William welcomed their second child, and FIRST PRINCESS this morning. Prince George‘s new little sister arrived just hours after mum was admitted to the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital in London. Click inside to welcome the Royal baby girl!
A soldier's work is ever done
Back in March we learned that Prince Harry announced that he will be retiring from British military service in June so that he can focus on other royal duties but today we get to see a nice set of new photos of Harry on a recent military deployment in Australia. Altho the prince’s retirement is imminent, he still had this deployment in Oz to complete as well as a deployment in New Zealand next month before he formally retires in June. I previously lamented the fact that we wouldn’t be able to see photos of Harry in his military garb anymore … but thankfully, we still have a few photos to look forward to before his retirement in June. Enjoy.
"I will continue to wear the uniform ... for the rest of my life"
After serving the British armed forces for 10 years, Prince Henry Charles Albert David of Wales has formally announced his retirement from the military. Prince Harry issued an official statement earlier today that celebrates his accomplishments in the British Army and hints at what the future may hold for him moving forward. In honor of Harry‘s decade of military service, the gallery presented here showcases various photos of Captain Harry Wales over the years as a proud British solider.

Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, paid a visit to the set of Downton Abbey in London earlier today and as she toured the various areas of Ealing Studios, she posed for a few photos with the cast and crew. Click through the gallery to see photos of Kate and Downton actors Michelle Dockery, Brendan Coyle, Jim Carter, Sopie McShera, Lesley Nicol and Joanne Froggatt as well as members of the Downton crew. As I understand it, Kate was on hand today to watch a future episode of Downton Abbey being filmed so I’m sure it was fun for her. No doubt, Kate‘s visit was a thrill for the cast and crew. I am so painfully behind on my Downton Abbey that I don’t even know what is going on (er, what went on) this season so … I need to catch up. Kate looks great as her second pregnancy carries on. I believe she is 8 months pregnant so … royal baby no. 2 should be making his/her arrival very, very soon.
Is this real or nah?
A video is making the rounds that clearly shows a naked man climbing out of a window of what is claimed to be Buckingham Palace. As you can see above, the video appears to show members of the British royal guard in front of the palace and in the background, a naked man can be seen climbing out a window and down a tied bed sheet of the the palace. To be honest, it’s impossible to believe anything you see like this on the Internet so I doubt it’s authenticity. Even still, it’s a funny video that is worth watching … real or not. Have a look, see what you think. If this is a real video, any guesses whose window this naked man is climbing out of?

A Royal Gift
Prince Harry, the hot one, participated in the annual Xmas eve soccer match that he partakes in every year earlier today and as you can see in the gallery presented here … he sure looked pretty damn good doing so. The match took place in a magical city called Castle Rising in Norfolk, which I’m sure is very picturesque, but it’s the sight of Harry and ginger-pubed abs that got the most of the attention, I’m sure. HMMM. Yes. Enjoy, won’t you?
Last night I did a horrible thing and took my 14 month-old baby out to a holiday party (with free wine and cheese and candy, yasss) at the amazing Archive Home in Nyack. The reason it was horrible is because I witnessed at least 17 women look upon the face of my child, and subject themselves to varying degrees of baby fever. Iris B put herself in harm’s way, and I suspect she and all those ladies are still clutching their ovaries. I myself, thought I was immune to baby fever, seeing as how I’m pretty much baby’d out. But alas, these new Prince George photos tell me otherwise. Click inside for more!
