Pippa Middleton Is A Bronzed Beauty At The Boodles Boxing Ball

3 Jul

Auntie Pippa!

Pippa Middleton successfully begged off baby-sitting duties to attend the Boodles Boxing Ball charity event in London on Saturday.

Obviously, she would’ve rather been hanging out with Prince George, but Pips looked happy to be out on the town with lovah Nico Jackson.

The possible future godmother was faboosh in a two-toned Catherine Deane gown with a criss-crossed bodice and burnt orange skirt. Not as fabby as her sister’s first post-baby red carpet appearance, but still respectable.

And we’d really like to know how she maintains her tan in foggy London. We hope her bronze glow comes courtesy of a bottle and NOT damaging UV rays.

Just looking out for you, Pippa!

Awww: Prince Harry Enjoyed A Cuddle With His Nephew, Prince George

25 Jun

Tonight, Prince Harry attended the unveiling of photographer Chris Jackson’s Sentebale exhibit at the Getty Images gallery in London. The Sentebale – Stories of Hope Exhibition showcases images by Jackson of Sentebale’s work helping the vulnerable children of Lesotho. Harry is a patron of the organization.

The now fourth-in-line royal talked to reporters about his nephew, HRH Prince George of Cambridge, and the nice cuddle they enjoyed at Kensington Palace on Tuesday night.

The prince joked to the Daily Mail‘s Rebecca English that he hopes the Duke and Duchess know “how expensive” his babysitting fee is, and vowed to teach Prince George how to have fun. In addition to that, Harry said he wanted to make sure that George has a “good upbringing” and wants to help keep the little one “out of harm’s way.”

The rest, Harry said, he’ll leave up to the parents.

Prince George To Be Christened At The Chapel Royal, St. James Palace

25 Mar

The Duchess of Cambridge looked radiant (lustrous locks and all) as she held her new son outside St. Mary's Lindo wing on July 23rd, 2013.

Kensington Palace announced today that HRH Prince George of Cambridge will be christened at The Chapel Royal, St. James Palace on Wednesday, October 23rd.

The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby will perform the private service.

According to royal reporter Victoria Arbiter, Princess Beatrice, Lord Frederick Windsor and his sister, Lady Gabriella Windsor were all christened at The Chapel Royal.

Both Prince Charles and Prince William were christened in Buckingham Palace’s music room. Prince Harry was christened at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. According to Arbiter, the Queen was christened in a private chapel inside Buckingham Palace, while her father’s took place at Sandringham.

It’s understood that Prince George will wear a replica of the original Honiton lace and satin christening gown created for Queen Victoria‘s eldest daughter in 1841, worn by Queen Elizabeth, William and other members of the current royal family. However, it was deemed too delicate to be worn again after Lady Louise Windsor‘s 2004 christening, so The Queen then had a replica commissioned for future use, according to HELLO!

Th night before her funeral at Westminster Abbey, Diana’s casket rested in The Chapel Royal.

Get To Know Your Celebrity Blabbermouth: Katrina Darling

Katrina Darling Celeb Blabbermouth

With world political leaders and celebs like President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron and famous Brits Harry Styles and Ellie Goulding sending their congrats to Duchess Kate Middleton and Prince William on the birth of week-old baby boy, Prince George, it only seems fitting Katrina Darling should, too.

Wait, Katrina, who?

Well, for (the many) who’ve never heard of her, Katrina is the Duchess’s distant cousin, who hopped on the 15 minutes bandwagon just before her commoner-turned-princess relative became betrothed to Wills in 2011.

The kicker: She’s never even met her cuz, but still feels she needs to share some sage advice to their newborn prince: “I wish both mother and baby a safe journey and congratulate them on the next big adventure and new challenges in their lives,” she told Page Six. “And to my fellow Cancerian Prince, I say spend your life exploring every inch of it, learn all there is to know, explore yourself and find out who you are!”

Those wise words come from experience, considering the British-born 22-year-old is known for exploring her wild side as a unroyal-like raunchy burlesque dancer (but dons crown pasties to cover up), and continues to do her family name proud by taking it all off (gasp!) for Playboy.

But when we say distant, the royal relationship is pretty f-a-r – turns out Kate and Katrina are… take a deep breath… second cousins, once removed, with her grandmother Jane Darling being the sister of the Duchess’s great-grandfather Thomas Harrison (now that’s a mouthful.)

And this isn’t the first time she’s spoken up about her semi-royal connection. Katrina’s cashed in on her fetish modeling, given her take on Prince Harry‘s nude Las Vegas pics and admitted that it would be “awkward to meet Kate” (um, you think!?)

Well, if Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog can offer their well wishes on the special royal delivery, Katrina’s in good company.
