"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!
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 »

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?

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!
