True, I'm sure all of us could, but I have to say that even with all the money in the world, they still had to walk the walk so to speak, so I won't damn them for what they did. I 'd just like to know if they raised any money doing it, and if so, how much and to whom did they give it. When you compare it to Albert's trip to the arctic and North Pole, they at least looked like they weren't coddled the way Albert was. The Queen strikes me as someone who wouldn't appreciate the spoiled brat aspect and would tell them to just get on with it. JMO.
LOL she raised at least 2 spoilt brats and you are talking about the offspring ... Those two are parentally challenged on both counts.;D
I actually think Bea is trying to do the right things. Eugenie seems more hopeless. I agree the parents are a disaster but perhaps Bea can get out from under the mess. Bea hasn't been spotted since her graduation leaving nightclubs a mess and at all hours, and she seems to be toning down how she dresses. I want to give her a chance to see how she turns out. Eugenie is the one that seems most like her Mother.
This is bitchy on Charles's part. Considering how much his own dalliances have cost British taxpayers, to keep picking on Andrew's girls is just ungentlemanly at a time when they're looking to settle down with mates of their own and won't be a burden for long. Trim down your own lifestyle and as some would say, pay your damn taxes.
First a Rothschild wedding at the palace, now a ride with the Queen wearing a red kabbalah bracelet, courtesy of Prince Andrew who changed the protocol for Eugenie to be front and center. Where do I begin? Kabbalah is for middle-aged male fathers according to the religion. It's not for Madonna. It's not for Eugenie. Here they say it's to ward off the "evil eye". While riding with the head of the Church of England, stupid ### It's an open insult to her grandmother and for Andrew, even worse. If she's going to start pulling stunts like her mother, that's it. She's going on the heap of ridiculous royals in my book.
In an interview with The (paywalled) London Times, Marcus Weston, a leader of the London Kabbalists, has claimed that there are secret followers of the mystical offshoot of Judaism in the heart of Buckingham Palace.
He says the royal converts have signed confidentiality agreements while they learn about the sect.
Conveniently enough, the remarkable and impossible-to-disprove revelation comes as the group finalizes plans to expand its London base.
I have an issue with Princess Beatrice at this wedding. I feel totally let down. Last time, she spurred me (in my previous incarnation as Agent Fascinateur) to come up with a response to her fascinator. The finished version of mine has a mini oil portrait I made of a young Queen Victoria. Here's the bones of it, courtesy of a dear friend's (repurposed) tie...
The young princesses looking good in Vogue UK September (with Rihanna on the cover) speaking on the difficulties of juggling royalty and a career. I wouldn't listen to critics and would delve into many of the facets of work that royalty has had a beneficial impact on, like the arts, architecture, fashion and history among cultural domains that have been patroned and cultivated, but also British tourism and any ambassadorial role to promote the values of the royal family with a direction towards modernity, to keep up with the cousins in line for the throne. First establish the problematic areas that are challenged by aggressive upstarts and try to always stay ahead either by creating a strong network of fellow young aristocrats who love their country, and make a common front on really having the ear of and tighten the bond among the British people. Just get out there and don't feel you have to justify your existence. By getting the ball rolling, the way will reveal itself.
My mom and I rarely agreed on the gorgeousness of Princess Eugenie's dress...modern romantic, pretty flawless down to the back detail that was just abstract enough plus, the neckline - sublime. It elongated the silhouette ever so discreetly. (I totally empathize too with double scoliosis). The diademe with emerald was perfect - emerald green being symbolic of unconditional love. Another who was jewelled-toned was Kate who takes the fashion stakes although I might have punctuated her fascinator with a dash of bright colour. Understated must have been the word and the gallery looked like a beautiful brochette albeit for Charles who forgot his tails or was silently telegraphing Camilla in Scotland. Not even the right cloth it appeared. Oh well. He was seated behind the bride's mom who I hope got a pass from Philip on the occasion. Weddings matter more to mom's than grudgeful grandpas. No offense. And Meghan...her orders must have been to completely dial herself into obscurity - why navy blue!? A sad or authoritarian colour. I would have given her a little more brightness. She is a newlywed after all. Oh and the Ave Maria. Excellent choice (although no one does it like Nathalie Choquette, even when it comes on as an earworm while you stand in front of a 1000 year-old statue of Mary in a Carcassonne basilica. Even angels are no match!). Congratulations to the handsome and obviously happy couple. May they live happily ever after (and avoid nasty traps laid by hired toe suckers. Sorry Philip, for stealing your thunder 😊 )
Erratum: not knits but a fabulous wool dress easily mistaken for coordinates. Where I got the contracting patterns is anyone's guess. I'm amazed I even flashed on this as it was during "the troubles" at home (as yet ended but soon I hope). I digress. Here's my first Pilotto crush:
