Video: Prince William & Kate Middleton engagement interview

April 28, 2012

As we celebrate the Cambridges’ wedding anniversary, take a look back at the first time we saw William and Kate together (without the paparazzi, that is).

The Red Lace Review — Duchess Catherine and other princesses

September 24, 2011

Is Duchess Catherine rocking the red lace? I’m not loving it. Is it the matchy hat? The dark shoes? I’ll only whisper this, but she looks a bit c-h-e-a-p. Is red lace just hard to wear? I remembered this gown of Princess Diana’s: Diana also had a red lace cocktail number, lined in red: Grace […]

Join me in a wedding gift to William and Kate?

May 14, 2011

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are the couple who have everything. Except the teensiest bit of privacy. I have an idea for a wedding present for them, and I wonder what you think about it? I promise not to click on any newspaper stories that seem to be invading their privacy. That means no […]

Royal newlyweds head back to private life, royal watchers collapse

May 1, 2011

Is your head still spinning from the wonderful wedding? Mine is! I watched the wedding on NBC — but I wasn’t alone in the wee hours, I was live blogging snarky (and sometimes teary-eyed) commentary with the team from Andrew Morton’s new celebrity and lifestyle site The Morton Report.
