Prince Harry turned 31 years old today and to celebrate the occasion, he made his way to Goodwood Aerodrome in Chichester, England to help mark the occasion of the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain. As you can see in the photos presented here, Harry is rockin’ some serious new facial hair which looks mighty damn fine, if I do say so myself.

23,226 days and counting!
Congratulations are in order for Queen Elizabeth Alexandra Mary, II today because at 17:30 BST she became the longest reigning monarch of the United Kingdom EVER! Before today, Queen Elizabeth‘s great great grandmother Queen Victoria was the longest reigning monarch … but now, 23,226 days, 16 hours and approximately 30 minutes (and counting) later, Queen Elizabeth stands as the UK’s longest reigning monarch — showing no signs that she is stopping, let alone slowing down. In order to mark this special occasion, a new official portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, age 89, has been released which you can see below. Read on to learn more about Queen Elizabeth‘s latest achievement and see her fabulous new photo below. More »
It’s hard to believe but Prince George, the eldest child of Prince William and Kate Middleton — the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, will turn 2 years old tomorrow (or today, if it’s already today in the UK … which I’m never sure about because Europe is always so far in the future to us here on the West Coast). His little sister, Princess Charlotte, has been getting all the attention lately — what with her being born and all — but now that the spotlight is off her for a minute, we can focus on the 2 year old prince. It seems like only yesterday that we heard that Wills and Kate were pregs with their first child and now, here we are, 2 years later and 2 babies. To celebrate George‘s birthday, the royal family has released an official new photo of the prince which was shot by famed photographer Mario Testino because, hello, this is how the royals do. Check out Prince George‘s super cute birthday photo below. More »
Just a few days ago, I blogged about the fact that baby Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, the newborn daughter of Prince William and Kate Middleton — the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, turned 1 month old. Today, the royal family finally got around to releasing the first official photos of their baby girl for all the world to see — photos that were shot by Kate herself. A collection of photos of Charlotte, in the arms of her older brother Prince George Alexander Louis, was released on social media and as you can see in the gallery presented here … the little princess and prince are abso-freaking-lutely adorable! I mean … the one where George is kissing Charlotte on the head? OMG. The first photo was given this caption, “We’re delighted to share the first photo of Prince George with his little sister Princess Charlotte” and I can honestly say that we are all delighted to see these photos. Have a look, see how cute little George and even littler Charlotte are in these photos.
If you can believe it, it was a month ago today that Prince William and Kate Middleton — the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge — gave birth to their second child … Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Altho we haven’t seen the little miss since the day she was born and left the hospital with her parents, I think it’s safe to assume that the princess has done a bit of growing in the past month. I mean … HELLO! A month? How has it been a month since that baby was born? Ugh. More »
"Kate must have been wearing a fake belly showing to the people that she was pregnant"
Over the weekend, Kate Middleton and Prince William welcomed the birth of their second child, a daughter they named Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Almost as soon as Kate and Wills stepped out of the hospital with their newborn princess swaddled in their arms (just hours after she was born), conspiracy theorists started a campaign of theories ranging from claims that the baby was born via surrogate days ago to claims that the baby in Kate‘s arms was a doll. The loudest of these conspiracy theories are coming from Russia, obvs, and are honestly too silly to even consider taking seriously … OR ARE THEY?! More »
... on Instagram
You know, it’s a sign of the times when the official birth certificate of a new born princess is shared with the world on Instagram … like we see here with the release of Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana‘s certificate of live birth. Official documents like this pertaining to members of the British royal family have been made immediately available to members of the public for many, many years but in this age of social media that immediacy has gotten even more instantaneous. As you can see below, the information on Princess Charlotte‘s birth certificate is pretty standard … but you have to see the occupations listed for her royal parents. Have a look. More »
Charlotte Elizabeth Diana
At last … at last we know the name of Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s newborn baby daughter. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge decided to choose Star Wars Day (May 4th) as the day that they announced the name of their just born princess … who the royal couple have named Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. I think many people felt pretty certain that the baby girl’s name would have either Diana (for Willy‘s mum) or Elizabeth (for Willy‘s gran) in her name … and now we learn that she has both, after her first name Charlotte (for Willy‘s father Charles — the next in line for the British crown). I love it. The little princess will be known formally as Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge … which is a bit title for a wee little girl. More »
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.
