Will and Kate did a tour of Scotland
Generally, I’m not super interested in the second to second goings-on of royal tours. They are perfectly nice, but they are usually also INCREDIBLY controlled. So it’s not a ton of fun to write about.
Will and Kate did a tour of Scotland to coincide with Will’s appointment by the Queen to be Lord High Commissioner to the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland. Essentially, it meant that Will had to be in Scotland and give some speeches. Will and Kate took the opportunity to do visits to Scottish towns and cities and highlight a bunch of good causes throughout the week. The tour provided us these photos of Will and Kate Being Fun and Relatable:
And these photos of Will and Kate Looking Like Monarchs in Waiting:
However, there are always exceptions to the “not a huge fan of royal tour events” rule. and this is one of them:
Kate met a young girl who asked her to wear a pink princess dress :’)
Oh dear. If you love a feel-good story, have I got the thing for you.
This is Mila. She is a five year old Scottish girl who’s battling leukemia.
Her mother, Lynda, submitted this picture of Mila being isolated from her father during the 2020 COVID-19 lockdown to Kate’s National Portrait Gallery exhibition Hold Still:
The photo was selected to be part of the National Portrait Gallery exhibition and the related book. Kate had a telephone call with Mila last fall, to ask how she was doing. Mila asked if Kate was wearing her princess costume, and Kate responded that no, she wasn’t wearing her princess costume at the moment, but when she met with Mila in person she would wear a princess dress, in Mila’s favourite colour (pink), just for her.
Cut to this past week at the Palace of Hollyrood House in Edinburgh. Kate invited Mila and her family to the palace for tea and, as promised, wore a pink princess dress to match Mila’s. It was one of the sweetest things I’ve ever seen.
Harry and Oprah did a televised town hall meeting for The Me You Can’t See
There weren’t many truth bombs in this town hall compared to the actual docu-series, but it made headlines regardless. I’m going to write a separate post about The Me You Can’t See and Harry’s desire to destroy his family under the guise of mental health this coming week.
Meghan is doing reiki on her dogs?
It’s a Daily Mail article, so grain of salt, but apparently Meghan is performing reiki (a form of finger tapping on yourself or others that has healing properties) on herself, Archie, and her dogs. I just thought you should know.
Kate got vaccinated, looked super hot doing it
Looks like it’s going to be a hot girl summer for the Duchess of Cambridge!
What is it with Will and Kate showing off their secret hotness while getting vaccinated? One of my Instagram followers said that she looks 23 in this picture, which is pretty good given she’s turning 40 next year. Agreed! Kate, drop that skin care routine!
PS: I know that it’s less a skin care routine and more a highly privileged life that includes the best food, skincare, trainers, and makeup that money can buy…but still, I would like to know what products she uses to try to get the glow.
