    How sad. This must have been purely for show then:

    Well all royals have nannies. She is holding Edward there. Andrew is supposedly her favorite!

    I see that unlike Queen Beatrix of Holland, she is not going to abdicate so her son can be King. They say she's still as sharp as a tack.

    She'll never abdicate. The majority of Kings and Queens of England hold their position until death. Beatrix followed in the steps of her mother and grandmother by abdicating. I think it's a nice thing to do though - she can live out her years with a somewhat private live.

    God, Liz could live past 100.

    Beatrix seems like a classy woman.

    an interesting and rather insightful quote from margaret:

    "It was inevitable: when there are two sisters and one is the Queen, who must be the source of honour and all that is good, while the other must be the focus of the most creative malice, the evil sister."



    All of God's children are not beautiful. Most of God's children are, in fact, barely presentable.

    can you imagine being that intelligent and never being able to use it nor have any purpose in life ? No wonder she was "bitchy " and "never let anyone forget " that she was royal .

    Those freaks creep me out.

    There's a ton of pics of the British royal family arriving for Christmas church services at the link. Too many for me to have the patience to post, but perhaps someone else will have the wherewithal.

    The Queen looked wonderful in orange.

    There is something sublimely wonderful about this photo of Queen Elizabeth atop your signature, Laurent. In nearly the same shade of reddish orange, no less. Because i could see the Queen delivering Mel's line, with nearly that expression.

    There's something hilarious about your signature under this pic. With the look on Her Majesty's face, it looks like she could be saying that to one of the photographers.

    [PICS] Prince William & Kate Middleton On Christmas 2013 — Holding Hands - Hollywood Life

    William and Kate are holding hands going to church. The royals never used to do that so it's good that this generation can behave normally.

    Zara's husband is ugly/hot.


    There are rumblings that the Norwegian Princely Couple may be separating after the New Year. Allegedly because of her affair with an American millionaire. Some sources say the alleged millionaire is - Bill Gates? Have you seen Princess Mette-Marit? She's a big girl; she'd crush Bill. And money aside, he's not cute, and certainly not as cute as her husband. I have defended her before elsewhere, but I just found out she is friends with (look left y'all)


    This.changes.everything.

    Now I know who has been planting those ideas in her head - running up bills for designer clothes, flying to the Hamptons and NYC, diva behavior, shirking of royal duties - it's FISHSTICKS!!!! She's like an human elitist version of impetigo - and she keeps spreading.

    Really? Thanks to that nose he looks like a literal and figurative mouthbreather to me.
