Has the wait for The Royals on E! rekindled your longtime dream of marrying a prince or princess? Or would you be happy just being a duchess' consort? No matter your aims, one thing is certain: in order to bag a royal, you must first encounter one. Luckily, royals in public are not rare if one knows where to look.…
Etiquette isn't just about being polite. It's an ever-changing code designed to show who belongs and who does not— and British royals are particular experts in reading the signs that expose social climbers. So if you find yourself invited to tea in Buckingham Palace, what comportment will avoid making you look like an…
Sure, Kate Middleton has great hair and she can probably find the most tasteful item in Zara blindfolded. And in her day, Princess Diana was widely respected as the reigning monarch of Western fashion. But you know who doesn't get enough credit for her style skills? Queen Elizabeth II.
The British Isles have brought many innovations into the world: tea time, reality TV singing competitions, imperialism. And, of course, scandal. Between inventing and refining the art of tabloid journalism, and providing homegrown material for the papers in the form of the royal family, it's clear that the British…
The royals are apparently very angry at human Pinterest board Pippa Middleton over her Today Show interview last week, which showed her grimacing at Matt Lauer for 30-minutes and giving away all the big royal secrets like "I get along well with my sister Kate Middleton" and "the Royal Wedding was a lot to take in." So…
Baby's first glossy!
Last week, Queen Elizabeth made headlines with a "photobomb," popping into a candid shot with a couple of athletes at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. But it was more selfie-with-celeb than proper royal photobomb. And so Prince Harry has stepped up to deliver the genuine article.
Queen Elizabeth, the English-speaking world's poker-faced great great aunt, has spent much of her life participating in painstakingly staged photo ops. Ergo, it's pretty tough to catch her in a candid moment. But smartphones are changing that—witness today's grinning appearance on Instagram.
Important casting news: Grand Dynasty dame Joan Collins has been cast in a guest role on The Royals, E!'s first scripted drama. She'll be appearing alongside star Elizabeth Hurley, who plays Queen Helena, head of a fictional modern-day British royal family. Yes, this is relevant to my interests, thank you very much.
Someone bought a 33 year old piece of cake, but it’s OK because it was from Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s wedding. Does that information makes this purchase acceptable? Oh and that stale sweet cost $1,375.
Alert, alert! The spare has been deployed! Kensington Palace says that yes, Kate Middleton is officially pregnant with her second child. And lo, a thousand celebrity news editors and designers of high-end baby clothes offered their thanks unto the heavens. Here's everything we know.
Prince Harry may be fourth in line (soon to be fifth in line) to the throne, but apparently he's number one in our hearts. A new poll of British adults conducted by
Pew Newsweek has found that Prince Harry is the most popular royal, yes even more popular than headline machine Kate Middleton.
If for some strange reason you absolutely needed to know Kate Middleton's due date ASAP: The palace has announced that Prince George's younger sibling is scheduled to arrive in April.
Ever bumped into a particularly unimpressive child of privilege with a hoity-toity surname and wondered to yourself, "I wonder how many generations of this dork's family have been living off some distant ancestor's achievements?" Well, if you're English, try 20!
This happened. IT ACTUALLY HAPPENED.
"Officer! She just pushed her way to the front," hollers an insistent pink-haired, sweatpants-clad woman glaring daggers at the back of another woman's black parka. "I would like you to ask her to move."
What a charmer!
Because a royal's work is never done (if you consider circling the world for photo ops "work," of course), Prince Harry recently visited the African nation of Lesotho to check in on the efforts of Sentebale, the children's charity he cofounded. They're building a new center that will, among other things, support kids…
And here everybody thought the boringly glamorous younger generation had completely rescued the English monarchy from their scandal-prone elders. Prince Andrew—Duke of York, former husband to Fergie and younger brother of Prince Charles—has just been accused of sexual encounters with an underaged girl.
