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 … Continue reading Weekly Royal Roundup
