I’ll always have a soft spot for SOCIALITE LIFE, not only because it was my first real job as a writer, but because it was also the first big platform for my royal coverage.
People often ask why I enjoy covering the Duchess of Cambridge and the House of Windsor. My answer rarely changes, because I remember how captivated I was by the idea of a future King falling in love with a commoner. Each time, I’m taken back to November 16th, 2010, when Prince William and Kate Middleton walked into the State Rooms at St. James’s Palace. Middleton wore the late Princess of Wales’ 18k blue sapphire Garrard engagement ring, selected by William to ensure that his mother didn’t miss out on all “the excitement.” Read More »
Whether or not she wants to admit it, the Duchess of Cambridge will need a nanny to help care for Prince George.
Report after report over the past year declared that William and Catherine wanted to go it alone, opting to raise their children without the help of nannies or baby nurses.
The simple fact is that this is an impossible task for someone like Catherine, who has a full-time job fulfilling royal engagements and working with select charities. There is no conceivable way for the working mom to raise George without hired help.

Prince Friso of Orange-Nassau, younger brother of Dutch King Willem-Alexander, died today after a skiing accident in February 2012 left him comatose.
The prince was buried under an avalanche while skiing off-trail in Lech, Austria, according to ABC News. He was under snow for 20 minutes before rescuers were able to pull him out.
The royal house confirmed the news today, saying that Friso never regained more than “minimal consciousness” after the accident. Prime Minister Mark Rutte said that the news “still comes as a shock,” despite Friso’s vegetative state.
“Prince Friso was only 44 years old, and until the ski accident, in the prime of his life,” Rutte said.

Pippa Middleton briefly dated cricket player Alex Loudon, and she thinks that makes her qualified to explain the game to the American public. She appears in her second column for Vanity Fair magazine, where she ends up spending most of the column [or at least, what’s been released] rhapsodizing over the ‘sultry’ allure of the uniforms and the ‘Englishness’ of the sport. So basically, none of the highlights are actually focused on explaining the sport itself.

There is nothing quite as lovely as a man in uniform, especially when that man is Prince Harry.
The red-headed royal was spotted earlier today doing his military duties at the opening of the Royal Marines Tamar in Devonport, England. Now I’d like to think that he’s sporting a baby blue beret in honor of his nephew Prince George, although there’s probably some more formal reason.
Harry was all smiles as he oversaw the opening of the facility. I appreciate that he’s been out and about and talking about his nephew. Read More »

With the birth of her grandson that she will never meet, Princess Diana’s picture graced September’s edition of Vanity Fair, exposing her two year affair with Pakistani doctor, Hasnat Khan.
The story also is featured in the wake of the new docu-film (hitting theaters this fall) which is entitled Diana and re-accounts her affair, as well as the last few years before her death.

Little G of Cambridge? Hot Harry is over it already. Like I said, while everyone else in the world was fapping over the birth of the new king, Harry was getting sunburned in the garden at Kensington Palace, enjoying the fact that no one was paying attention to his summer parties and how often his girlfriend Cressida Bonas was over. Harry and Cressida hit up the WOMAD music festival.
