That guy is so legendarily insecure, that if someone had grabbed his date's hand to squire her up some stairs, he would have gone ba-llistic. It was super rude IMO but then again, I don't lose sleep over Tom Cruise, just like William doesn't seem to either but bad form on Cruise's part. The man can't even get a girlfriend 🙄
It should have been self-evident, what with Andrew and the Order of the Garter, without having to resort to an ultimatum. It goes without saying that aside from the obvious bad taste, the public outcry, there was the Jubilee afterglow to preserve and the people's good will towards the monarchy. My nagging little voice however keeps popping in and wants to warn William to be prudent. Andrew has bad friends. He's also for sale. I know personally how even within your family, people's resentment at your rectitude can cause a lot of problems.
Watching the hearings, I think former VP Mike Pence deserves a lot of credit for navigating such insane upheavals and steering everyone out of a much bigger mess. He definitely should be decorated. 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
Happy 40th, William 🎂🎉🎈 Men only begin to be interesting after 40, it's long been my belief. They inhabit their skin, know themselves better, are better aware, their vision is honed, they have the means, chosen their friends, are more indulgent and have rounded their rough edges. Of course, it's a sight to behold on their way to becoming, but 40 is definitely a good line in the sand. Enjoy your days of freedom until duty calls. Enjoy your family and watching your kids grow. 🎊🎁
Hard not to empathize in instances of disrespect and failure in duty...
“It is such a complex situation. But when you boil it down, I think it does come down to William not really being able to forgive Harry for turning his back on his duty, and the way he did it. William feels that a lot of what Harry has done has been very disrespectful.”
Boston. It would be easy to say, well what do you expect from the site of the Boston Tea Party however modern MAGA republicans do seem to run to the comment boxes of more than one royal watcher on YouTube so the whole thing can seem confusing.
I think their trip went very well. The visit to the JFK Library quashed the nonsense "no-show" grumblings - you simply don't expect a woman whose brother died in a plane crash to get on a plane in bad weather. Let's be real. John Kerry just got over catching COVID at Cop27. Otherwise there was a nice group of celebrities for the Earthshot Awards. There's only one tiny thing... it wasn't Saint-Patrick's though. I'm not a fan of the dress. It may be hypocritical coming from a woman whose last home had walls of "Limelight" green. I'm just not sure about wearing that shade. 🤷🏻♀️ I thought maybe they were going to be projecting images on her like a blue suit or something but no, not even.
I also am not for form-fitting leave-not-much-to-the-imagination dresses and we can put Queen Letizia's recent off-the-shoulder number at an event with her husband in that category. It's not just Kate. But it was very sporty, kind of American but with serious jewelry. I don't know...
This must feel good, having the crowds screaming I love you. A real balm on bruised hearts. Although in the sequel to Harry's rabbit hole-ing series, he and wifee will probably steal that footage and pretend it was for them 😄
This is something I noticed on a visit by Queen Rania, I think, the kisses then curtsey. Given Catherine seems to take style cues from her - the long hair, for one - I think this may be a bit borrowed but lovely. It's formal but affectionate. I'd love to see all these people kiss on both cheeks all the time.
