I'm THISCLOSE to starting a new blog called PoorKate.com. Seriously. This painting had to be chosen by the Queen and her Horse-in-Law, Camilla. I can see these two biddies elbowing each other and snickering behind Poor Kate's back. Or right in FRONT of her back. Wrinkles, bags and jowls. Oh my.
As IF Kate doesn't feel crappy enough with her difficult and barfy pregnancy, she has to presented with an Official Portrait of her poor self looking like she's never seen the light of day, but has aged 25 years since her wedding day, all while still wearing that blue dress.
I'm tempted to Photoshop this horrible thing on Poor Kate's behalf. What do YOU guys think? Is it just me??
I wouldn't be doing my job if I didn't advise you of some new photos of Kate Middleton from her nude sunbathing holiday with William. Yeah. See what I did there? I made it sound as if I have some kind of duty to inform you about (gulp) bottomless pics of love Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge taken with a crazy-huge lens unbeknownst to her.
The photos which were seemingly copied from a spread in the Scandinavian magazine Se og Hør (which translates to See and Hear), are on Egostastic.com. Someone needs to start a PoorKate.com. Seriously.
"We are a leading gossip magazine in Denmark, and it is my job to publish them," Kim Henningsen said, via the Belfast Telegraph.
Taken with a very long lens the grainy images show Will slathering Kate's back and bottom with lotion as she pulls down her bikini.
A rep for the royals declined to comment, telling E! News, "Our stance is the same as before—we aren't commenting on any further legal action save to say all proportionate responses will be kept under review."
Scandalous Kate pics could fetch $1 million.
In other words, Denmark is on notice.
Ten days ago, lawyers for Will and Kate obtained an injunction against Closer for breach of privacy. The magazine was ordered to pull the topless pics and hand over all digital copies. A French court has also launched a criminal probe into whether the tabloid and the photographer should face prosecution. Separately, the editor for the Irish Daily Star was suspended for giving the go-ahead for his paper to publish some of the topless images.
I know. All y'all care about is the LINK. Fine. Go! I'll spare you my alternately outraged yet perversely curious rant.
OhdearLort. Here we go again. William and Kate's privacy was invaded during a holiday in the South of France by paparazzi who literally got the "money shots" of a topless Kate. Those photos are slapped all over a French magazine called, Closer.
St. James's Palace has confirmed that the topless pictures are of Kate and issued a Royal Statement:
"Their Royal Highnesses have been hugely saddened to learn that a French publication and a photographer have invaded their privacy in such a grotesque and totally unjustifiable manner.
"The incident is reminiscent of the worst excesses of the press and paparazzi during the life of Diana, Princess of Wales, and all the more upsetting to The Duke and Duchess for being so.
"Their Royal Highnesses had every expectation of privacy in the remote house. It is unthinkable that anyone should take such photographs, let alone publish them.
"Officials acting on behalf of Their Royal Highnesses are consulting with lawyers to consider what options may be available to The Duke and Duchess.
"The Duke and Duchess remain focused currently on their Tour of Singapore, Malaysia, Solomon Islands and Tuvalu on behalf of HM The Queen."
Naturally, Closer editor Laurence Pieau saw no harm in running the photos whatsoever!
"These photos are not in the least shocking. They show a young woman sunbathing topless, like the millions of women you see on beaches."
I think Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge would beg to differ.
What are your thoughts? Is this Princess Diana all over again? Should Kate have "known better"? Both? Give us your thoughts...
Oh dear. This is veddy, veddy sad news indeed. One of Queen Elizabeth II's beloved corgis has died, along with a weinerdog-corgi mix.
Monty and two other corgis greeted actor Daniel Craig, playing 007 in the short film. The death of Monty, 13, who was previously owned by the Queen Mother, leaves two corgis in the palace. The royal family's ties with the breed began when the future George VI bought his first Pembroke corgi in 1933.
The palace announced the death of Monty and of Cider, a dorgi, or dachsund-corgi cross-breed.
In the short film, screened ahead of the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Games, the dogs ran down the stairs and performed tummy rolls.
They then stood as a helicopter took off for the Olympic stadium, carrying Bond and a stunt double of the monarch.
Willow and Holly are the two remaining corgis. And two dorgis, Candy and Vulcan, remain at the palace.
Hmmm...I wonder why both doggies died? The Palace is only making the statement, but without specific details.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been enjoying some time in North America, spending several days in Canada and then finally made their way to the States.
The newlyweds arrived in Los Angeles last Friday for their three days vist, and spent their first day at a charity Polo match in Santa Barbara on Saturday morning.
William's team won, and Catherine presented his team with the trophy, and gave her husband a big victory kiss. The match was to benefit the American Friends of the Foundation of Prince William and his cute ginger brother, Harry.
The pair later attended the BAFTA "Brits To Watch" event at the Belasco Theatre Saturday night. A number of celebs, including Nicole Kidman, who looks horrifyingly older than her actual age; her posture and strange skin situation is becoming alarming, Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson and Jennifer Lopez (you'll read more about HER in DivaJulia's post later--she's still trying to extinguish her hair fire) were also at the event.
According to People, the couple sat at a table with Nicole Kidman and Barbra Streisand. Could you imagine that conversation?!
Catherine wore a gorgeous Alexander McQueen gown with a Jimmy Choo clutch and matching sandals. She also wore a pair of earrings lent to her by Queen Elizabeth.
One their last day in the states, the couple kept things more low key, helping out at the Mission Serve: Hiring Out Heroes event and visiting the Inner City Arts, an organization that serves homeless youth in the Skid Row are of downtown LA.
The two helped attended art classes and even got to paint their own "mandalas", a circular type of art in Asian cultures. At one point, Catherine turned to her husband and said, "William, do you know what you're doing? Start from the center."
After a few moments, he turned back to his wife and said, "Catherine, what are you supposed to do?" She laughed and instructed him again. How cute!
After all that, the couple hopped back on their awesome plane back home to London.
I hope they visit America again very soon, if only so we can see more of Catherine's outfits!
