The last surviving great-grandchild of Queen Victoria died yesterday. Carl Johan Arthur Bernadotte (1916-2012), Count of Wisborg, was the youngest son of Crown Prince Gustaf Adolf of Sweden (later King Gustaf VI Adolf) and Princess Margaret of Connaught.

Condolences to the Swedish RF.

When I hear there's been a death in the Swedish RF, I expect to hear it's Princess Lilian, as her health is not at all good.

Sorry for the double posting, but this deserves it's own...

This Is Glamourous ~ Prince William and Kate : One Year On (http://citified.blogspot.ca/2012/04/love-stories-04-prince-william.html)

Among the great lookback over the year over there is something I've never seen or thought to ever see. It's a certain picture from the Wedding Day and no...I'm not telling. Let's see if anyone else can figure it out. :D

OK I'll play - the one pic I haven't seen before is the close up of the hands showing a close up of part of Kates' cleavage and right boob :D

Oh Lorac..:lol:

The one I'm talking about is seeing Kate approaching the Rolls to take her to the Abbey. The one where she's still in that tunnel to hide her and the dress for the longest possible time. I've never seen any pictures of Kate walking through the tunnel that day, so that for me was a surprise to see.

A funny moment from after the cameras stopped airing on the engagement interview:

There's no audio, but supposedly Kate threw her head back laughing and said "I am no good at this!" while William tried to convince her otherwise :lol:

Ok, now I love her even more. :swoon:

That gif erases the :yikes: memory I have of that interview. :lol:

Also: Looks like TIM The Emperor & Empress of Japan (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/japan/9251268/Japans-royal-couple-to-visit-Britain-in-first-trip-overseas-since-2009.html) will be at the Sovereign's Lunch at Windsor on May 18th. It's their first overseas trip since 2009. :) Glad that HIM is well-enough to go.

And BTW: It's V-E Day. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F8nzbAPxIG4) :cheer2:

Is the Empress Michiko the one who inspired the novel The Commoner, i.e., the first commoner to marry into the imperial family?

^ Yes, indeed.

Good book, actually. :)
