Hello everyone and happy Monday! (If there ever was one.)
Hope you’re all having a good start to the week! I just had a long weekend in lovely Prague and have come back feeling pretty refreshed, which is always nice.
There have been more shenanigans in royal world this week, and as one or two of you mentioned I forgot to cover off the South Park parody of Harry and Meghan last week!
But before I get to that, let’s start on a good note and kick off wiiiiith….
William and Kate at the BAFTAs & Rugby
Yep, on Sunday 19th February, The Prince and Princess of Wales attended the 2023 BAFTA Award ceremony here in London, due to Prince William’s longtime role as President of BAFTA.
The royal couple looked gorgeous as they showed up on the red carpet, with Catherine re-wearing her 2019 BAFTA dress with just a few alterations…
As per normal, The Prince and Princess did a ‘meet and greet’ with a number of celebrities, getting to discuss their achievements in cinema over the last year and any possible nominations.
Perhaps William had more luck with the other celebs?
Either way, I can only imagine what Meghan was thinking in California. Silent for the last three months as she hides away in her Montecito mansion while Kate and William rub shoulders with celebrities, she must have been bloody fuming.
Following the meet and greet session, William and Kate took their seats in the crowd, ready for the ceremony to start.
But once the show is over, it’s less ‘party time’ for the royals and more time to ‘get in the car and go home’– much to the disappointment of some, I’m sure.
But the couple’s joint engagements didn’t stop there; the two also attended the Six Nations rugby game between England and Wales over the weekend, a sport which they have both previously admitted to genuinely enjoying.
Visiting the Principality Stadium in Cardiff for the game, the pair were all smiles in their roles as rugby patrons, ready to watch the two UK teams battle it out.
William and Catherine also had the chance to meet injured rugby players, who are supported by the Welsh Charitable Trust, where William chatted away animatedly.
The pair even got the chance to unveil a plaque in front of the Welsh Rugby Charitable Trust as part of their visit.
There was also a visit to a post-match locker room, whereby the royal couple got to meet the players from the teams and congratulate them on a well-played game.
It appears the pair got on really well with the players as they laughed and joked away about the match.
With England just cinching a victory over Wales, it seems the happier one with the result was probably Kate, who clearly thoroughly enjoyed the game.
Well done to England on their win!
Harry and Meghan on South Park
Right, now I know a few of you asked me to cover this because, well, how could you not?
Yes, if you thought I was a savage when it came to Harry and Meghan, the creators of South Park tried their utmost to rival the snark in their portrayal of the Gruesome Twosome and their request for ‘privacy’.
Obviously taking the piss out of Harry and Meghan, South Park called the segment the “Worldwide Privacy Tour”, showing an ‘unnamed
pair of losers “Prince and Princess”‘ holding placards as they appear on a talk show, to discuss how they just want to be left alone.
The episode sees Harry promote his autobiography entitled “Waaaagh”, where he bitches and moans about his life, despite it being one of luxury and privilege. Harry is described as ‘Royal prince, millionaire, world traveler, victim’, while Meghan gets the lovely tagline of ‘Sorority girl, actress, influencer, and victim’.
Of course, Sussex fans everywhere had yet another little cry, clearly gob-smacked that yet more people are astute enough to see through Harry and Meghan’s bullshit, yet alone call them out on it.
They quickly took to Twitter to start retweeting an old skit where South Park apparently made fun of Prince William– although what point they were trying to prove, I don’t know.
But the people who were most upset about this, perhaps, were none other than Harry and Meghan themselves, who were ‘devastated’ by their
accurate portrayal on the show.
Yes, according to press reports, it was Meghan, unsurprisingly, who was the more upset half of the couple over the picture that was painted of them– apparently seething that anyone would dare make fun of her. Harry however, while somewhat miffed, wasn’t quite as upset about it.
The segment ended with Harry telling Meghan that they could now go and lead a ‘normal life’, with cartoon-Meghan apparently not expressing an interest in this and both parties going their separate ways.
I’d wager Meghan was the most angry about this part as the South Park writers had probably sussed out her masterplan and then put it on national tv, much to her annoyance.
But the stress of a piss-take on South Park has proved too much for the couple, who are now apparently taking their anger over the segment out on each other; because while people across the globe struggle with recessions and feeding their families, Meghan’s biggest issue is that people she doesn’t know are making fun of her.
Poor Harry (I say this loosely, of course); he must be ducking and diving in that house while a drunk Meghan pelts plates at his head.
I mean, it’s a stressful time for the couple; Meghan has also recently expressed anger that she was not included in the King’s coronation plans, as though she’s got absolutely anything to do with this.
In any case, I’m sure Meghan will calm down in due course; there’s bound to be another parody somewhere that will piss her off even more.
Kate and Pancake Day
And now for something sweet… in the form of The Princess of Wales visiting a care home on Shrove Tuesday.
Arriving at the Oxford House Nursing Home in Slough, England, Catherine greeted the center’s staff as she stepped out of her car, eager to get started with the day.
Once inside, Catherine met with residents at the nursing home, who seemed delighted to meet her.
Catherine also enjoyed chatting to various staff members who work at the house, including nursing staff and cooks, and learning about the roles they undertake on an everyday basis.
Kate even tried her hand at flipping a few pancakes, truly getting into the spirit of the day.
But keen to get stuck in, Catherine even introduced a few cooking tips of her own…
But despite being known for her pretty decent culinary skills, Catherine had a bit of a hard time when it came to actually flipping the pancakes.
But even despite a few bumps in the road, Kate was able to maintain her composure and good nature.
I’m sure Kate enjoyed the day and will be back again to visit soon.
Princess Charlotte to get a job
Not right now obviously as she’s only 7– but in the future.
Yes, it has been reported that her parents, The Prince and Princess of Wales, want their little Charlotte to break away from her royal status and actually find a career path.
Much like her dad’s cousins, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, Charlotte will be expected to carve out her own job and skill set, all while still be known as a ‘Princess’.
Depending on what Louis does too, it might have Charlotte question why she has a certain role carved out for her that differs to her siblings, or even from her parents, for that matter.
But what type of job could a Princess actually get, in theory? I mean, you’d get a bit of a shock if she was your server at your local Taco Bell drive-thru with her manager standing behind her making sure she delivered her lines correctly.
Or perhaps, like most of her friends might do, she could get a job in real estate?
Or could it be something we didn’t see coming– like a maid?
Or maybe they’ll keep it in the family and have Charlotte support George in a PA capacity as they get older and he undertakes more engagements? Although I’m not sure how well something like that works out when you’re siblings.
Real talk though, ultimately I don’t think this will happen; George will probably need a fair amount of support with his role when he’s King and I can’t see them wanting Charlotte and Louis to take a total backseat during this time.
And with that…
Are Harry and Meghan about to split?
So this is an interesting one I’ve now read in a few gossip rags where some are speculating that it won’t be long before a split is announced by Harry and Meghan.
It is being said that following the release of ‘Spare’, Meghan has decided to ‘seek time apart’ from Harry– largely because she realises she has now gotten everything she possibly can out of him and can’t rinse him for even a drop more.
I mean, there’s been the titles and wealth she married him for, global notoriety, the Spare book, a $100million Netflix deal, her name in all the papers… what further good could he possibly do for her now?
Well, rumours swirling is usually start of the shitstorm, and considering I’ve never heard any rumours of the sort throughout their relationship, it is a little odd they would come up with now without some sort of tip off from somewhere.
The speculation has come off the back of Meghan’s silence during the Spare promotional tour, whereby Harry undertook most of these appearances on his own. Die-hard Sussex fans will tell you that it was just a ‘loving wife’ giving her husband the opportunity to bask in the limelight– but anyone with fucking eyes will tell you it’s a calculated move on her part.
Really– since when has Meghan ever let Harry have the limelight?
Nah, something weird is afoot here. Never has she ever been quiet for this long. I do wonder if this was the final step of her masterplan; the final bullet being shot from the chamber, whereby she lets Harry make an arse of himself one final time on the world stage before distancing herself from him at last, leaving him looking like an idiot.
But what would happen now if there was a separation? By my own prediction, I feel that Meghan will be on a chat show sofa faster than you can blink, throwing Harry under the bus along with the rest of his family, the narrative changing exponentially.
We can all see it coming a mile off; whatever book deal Meghan apparently has, you know she is saving it for the split and when she can open another can of worms by suddenly ‘exposing’ Harry as this shit husband who did nothing for her.
Watch how the Sussex fans will turn on him too. It’ll go from:
It all remains to be seen, but I have a feeling I’m right in my predictions.. we’ll see.
Anyway everyone, have a lovely week! Stay safe, happy and I’ll see you all next week. Until next time…
