Princess of Orange :slinkawayHehe... that would work if there really weren't a Princess of Orange. :)

I was browsing though a royal gallery on Hello!, and came across this (http://www.hellomagazine.com/royalty/201103215128/monaco-rose-ball-2011/charlotte-casiraghi/princess-antoinette/) photo of Princess Caroline's 3 eldest children. Such hotness should not be allowed in one family.

Tell me about it nerdycool. Especially Andreas.

The last pictures of Stephanie I've seen were from The Red Cross Ball a few months ago and she's one tough looking lady these days. I think she's trying to concentrate her efforts into the AIDS Foundation she started earlier in the Fall (?). IIRC, she's also an UN Ambassador for AIDS too, but I could be wrong about that. I do know the Crown Princess of Norway is one for sure, but can't remember if Stephanie is as well at the moment.

A listing of the biggie Royal Events coming up and I'm going by memory here...

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh pay a State Visit to Ireland

Prince Phillip's 90th Birthday and Trooping The Colour (Both on the same day)

Zara Phillips' Wedding in Scotland

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's Tour of Canada and the US

Prince Albert of Monaco and Charlene Wittstock's Wedding

For those who adore Tiaras...If you get a chance to find the special issue of Country Life that's out there to mark William and Catherine's Wedding, there's a drop dead stunning two page spread of Tiaras in there. Some I've never seen before. One of those being a Ruby and Diamond one w/Cresent Moons and Stars and...*drools*

Edward and Sophie took Lady Louise and Viscount James to The Royal Windsor Horse Show on the weekend...

Daily Mail ~ Little Lady Louise swaps her bridesmaid's dress for casuals as she enjoys all the fun of the country fair (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-1387356/Lady-Louise-swaps-Royal-Wedding-bridesmaids-dress-casuals-country-fair.html)

She's so adorable! It makes me a little sad that they are so private with Lady Louise. I understand protecting her from potential cruelty, but she's a cute little girl and it makes wonder if her eye condition didn't have more to do with it.

Love the Queen's hat!

Is that the President's husband with the DofE? His tie matches the president's suit.

Couple of questions:

1) What is Prince Williams last name? I have never thought about it!

2) Does Kate Middleton make a ton of money off of all the things being sold with her name and image? I just saw a commercial for some giant doll that is her in an exact replica of her wedding dress. The commercial had a disclaimer that she does not endorse the product but they do have to pay her for it, right? Can you use someone's image for profit without their permission which usually comes only if they get a cut.

1) Legally, I think it's Mountbatten-Windsor, but he goes by William Wales. Officially, he (like his father and grandmother) would just sign royal documents "William"

2) You can't use a person's image for commercial purposes without their permission. Unless there's some separate law for royals, which I doubt (I mean, the queen doesn't get a cut of the stamps afaik) she would have to permit them to use her likeness and name. Hence why you'll see things like "Princess Doll!" that looks OBVIOUSLY like Kate or Diana or whomever the royal it girl of the moment is, but it's just different enough they don't have to get permission. Whether or not they're paid for their imaage would depend on teh contract (they might just require a certain amount go to charity, for example) but they'd need to sign off on use of their name.

For those who are still curious (personally guilty), Princess Beatrice's hat is now bid at 18,200.00: http://www.ebay.co.uk/royalhat

Yes, I can put her face on a plate, sell it, and she gets nothing.

Turns out we've got a Royal skater. Princess Caroline's daughter Princess Alexandra of Hanover has competed in two Competitions.

Coupe d'Avignon results (http://www.sportsdeglaceliguepaca.fr/Artistique/saison2010_11/avignon/html/CAT073RS.HTM)

Coupe d'Improvisation Cannes Azur Patinage 2011 results (http://www.sportsdeglaceliguepaca.fr/Artistique/saison2010_11/Cannes/classement%20moins%20de%2012%20ans%20cat%20A.pdf)

So...Someone to keep an eye out for possibly. However, I have a feeling the next time I see a mention of Alexandra around here will be from her Uncle's Wedding in a couple of months from now. :)
