Today would have been Princess Margaret’s 84th birthday. Queen Elizabeth’s younger sister is one of my all-time favorite royals. She was beautiful, glamorous (Mick Jagger was a close pal), famously hedonistic (you try finding photos of any other royals smoking in public, let alone naked in the bathtub wearing only jewels), and haughty as hell.
KATE MIDDLETON AND PRINCE WILLIAM
Prince Harry was spotted making out at Guy Pelly’s club Tonteria with Scottish lass Camilla Thurlow, a former Miss Edinburgh who works for Princess Diana’s land mine charity The Halo Trust. According to the Daily Mail, however, it’s unlikely that it was anything but a bit of fun during a rowdy World Cup party.
Also, some chubby-cheeked baby turned 1.
So much William and Kate this week!
Here they are on the cover of Vanity Fair with Prince George: his first cover appearance, but surely not his last. From the Vanity Fair article by Katie Nicholl, we learn that Prince George was a colicky baby who cried a lot and didn’t sleep through the night (so, a baby, then?), was breastfed by Kate, and might be getting a sibling next year after Will ‘n Kate give it another go this summer.
Two of my favorites: Duchess Kate and whiskey, together at last! (Actually, seeing as they’re in Scotland, it would be whisky.) Meanwhile, Prince Harry horsed around with a bunch of kids and confronted a bemused cow.
