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!
And he broke royal protocol in the process
Earlier today we saw video of Beyoncé and Jay Z hanging out briefly with Prince William and Kate Middleton at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn, NY during the Brooklyn Nets vs. Cleveland Cavaliers basketball game last night. And after the game was over, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge enjoyed a private audience with King James himself — LeBron James. During the well photographed meeting, LeBron presented gifts to the royal couple and inadvertently broke royal protocol when he put his arm around Kate Middleton for the photo op. Whoops. More »

Early last month it was formally announced that Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, is pregnant with her second child and today we get to see the first signs of her burgeoning baby bump … kinda. Kate attended a charity gala at L’Anima restaurant in London, England last night and was showing the first signs of her tiny bump. Folks are crediting her “head-turning cocktail dress” with nude cut-outs with properly showcasing her baby bump because, well, this is the kind of world we live in :) Click through the gallery to get your first look at Kate‘s royal bump … do you see it in any of the photos?
Back in May we learned that Prince Harry became the senior most member of the British Royal Family to personally post a tweet on Twitter. Today we learn that Queen Elizabeth, II — the head of the British monarchy — has also personally posted her first tweet on Twitter.

Royal Baby #2 will be here circa...
Catherine, Duchess of Crambridge, I feel for ya! Whenever a due date is announced (unless you’ve been concealing your pregnancy for, say, 7 months or so) it always sounds light years away. A full-term pregnancy is not 9 months folks. It’s 10 months. 40 long weeks, which I imagine feel even longer when you’re on bed rest, or suffering from severe morning sickness, like the Duchess. This morning we got the big news from Kensington Palace about the second Royal Baby’s expected time of arrival, so click inside for more!
Queen Elizabeth Alexandra Mary, II has bestowed the high honor of the Honorary Dame Grand Cross of the Most Distinguished Order of St Michael and St George to American actress Angelina Jolie for her work in the fight against war zone sexual violence. This award has royally turned Angelina into an honorary Dame. In an special ceremony held at Buckingham Palace earlier today, Angelina was given her honorary damehood in front of dignitaries as well as her husband Brad Pitt and the couple’s 6 children. Click thru the gallery presented here to see Angelina receive her honorary damehood from Queen Elizabeth. While I have no idea at all what this honorary damehood means at all, I must say that I am still pretty impressed.
Birthday Lurve for the Ginger Prince
Prince Harry — more formerly known as Prince Henry Charles Albert David of Wales — turns 30 years old today and in celebration of his special day, I have culled together a collection of photos that take us on a trip through his 3 decades of life. Altho his older brother Prince William has always been higher than Harry in the British royal line of succession (as is William‘s son Prince George and will be his forthcoming second child, due to be born next year), there is no doubt that Harry is the funner prince of the British royal family. A philanthropist, a military man, a party animal … Prince Harry is many things. Altho he has made some dumb mistakes in his past, Prince Harry has always been my fave British royal so I’m happy to send him all the Birthday Lurve today to his royal gingerness today. Happy 30th Birthday, Harry. Here’s to at least 30 more!
Royal Bump Watch, 2014
We are all waking up to some very big news from the Royal family! Another bump watch is beginning, as Princess Kate and Prince William are expecting their second child. You may remember Vanity Fair celebrated Royal Baby Prince George’s first birthday back in July with a family cover—well, it sounds like Kate was just a few weeks shy of conceiving the second baby when that issue came out. This is definitely exciting news, though I was also feeling sympathetic, as the Duchess of Cambridge is—once again—afflicted with severe morning sickness. Click inside for more.
Last week we got to see a new official photo of Prince George Alexander Louis of Wales which was released ahead of the baby prince’s first birthday. Today, Prince George turns 1 year old and in honor of that fact, more photos of George and his parents Prince William and Kate Middleton have been released as well. It’s crazy to think that Prince George was born a year ago today … it’s insane how quickly time flies. Click below and let’s send all of our birthday lurve to the future king of England today! More »
