The big royal premiere of Top Gun: Maverick happened last night in London and it was pretty interesting! This post is just for the royal photos. Unlike last fall’s No Time to Keen premiere, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were the only royals at the premiere. It was said that William was interested in the movie because he flies planes and helicopters or something? I don’t know why they even gave that as a reason, William is (nominally) the president of BAFTA, that’s reason enough for him to attend the splashiest London premieres. And Kate had to be his plus-one, otherwise no one would care (sad but true).

As for Kate, she wore a slinky black-and-white Roland Mouret dress. The more I look at it, the more I actually like it? I don’t know what kind of “give” that fabric has, but it was tailored perfectly on her very slender body. My first thought was that this dress is a throwback to the iconic dress worn by Julia Roberts in Mystic Pizza. Other people associated it with Brenda and Kelly’s prom dresses on 90210. So, some dated style references, for sure. Still, it’s a good dress. She also wore Robinson Pelham diamond “star” earrings which… I’m not sure they’re right with the dress. Her hair is fine. Remember, she’s doing her hair like that nowadays because she’s copying Meghan it’s an instant “facelift.” Meanwhile, this whole look does feel very, um, Meg-esque.

People were making a big deal about how Tom Cruise helped Kate up the steps all while William barely even looked over at her. I think it was a combination of things – William rarely helps her with that kind of stuff, and Tom likely offered his hand to her as soon as they approached the steps. It is kind of funny though, Kate being helped up by a movie star and not her husband.

The thing about the Duchess of Cambridge is that while she’s often inappropriately dressed, she rarely wears body-con styles or anything which could be described as “slinky.” Last night’s Roland Mouret look was a change up for her, yet it fell in the familiar theme of “copykeening.” As for the slinky, body-conscious style… it’s led to speculation that she wore padding on her bum. Her sister Pippa Middleton famously wore padding to Kate’s 2011 wedding, and Pippa’s ass of lies haunted her for years as photographers were constantly on the hunt for “bum shots.” So, I looked through the photos and… I’m not sure? If Kate is wearing something, she went for modest padding, because this just looks like her regular body. It wouldn’t surprise me if she wore appropriate foundation garments, and sometimes those will “lift” a woman’s backside.

I also came across this asinine Daily Mail story, in which a “celebrity stylist” poured sugar and lies all over Kate’s look:

Celebrity stylist Miranda Holder told Femail that the dress was ‘distinctively more sultry’ than the looks we usually see on the mother-of-three. The form-fitting dress highlighted the Duchess’s shape, and her sling back hair and cleverly applied body shimmer brought the attention to her toned arms and chiselled shoulders.

‘It was a bold sartorial move, and the Duchess of Cambridge executed it to perfection,’ Miranda said. ‘Kate knows how to turn up the glamour, but last night’s look was a world away from her previous ensembles and distinctively more sultry. The dress was extremely fitted, highlighting Kate’s enviable curves which looked nothing short of sensational, and the Bardot-esque off the shoulder neckline exposing her décolletage. ‘This, combined with a very modern slicked back hair style, instead of her usual neat “updos”, added a new dimension to the Royal’s fashion repertoire,’ the fashion expert went on.

The Top Gun gown is the most daring look Kate has worn at an event since turning William’s head during a fashion show at St Andrews University where she donned a skimpy see-through dress that shown her underwear.

[From The Daily Mail]

…Are we even looking at the same dress??? This stylist is just out here, saying words. The reason the Mouret dress “works” on Kate is because she’s doesn’t have “enviable curves.” Kate is slender with a small bust and narrow hips, that’s why she can pull off a dress like this. And the whole idea that this is the “most daring” look Kate has worn since college… well, it’s funny how all of Kate’s twirly miniskirts and Marilyn Moments have been completely whitewashed.

Did you think we were done with Tina Brown’s promotional tour for The Palace Papers? Of course not. As someone who covers royal gossip, I actually appreciate the fact that at least Brown is someone different. I get tired of all of the noisy, spiteful pearl-clutchers who make up the royal commentary class. That being said, Brown’s talking points are mostly just an offshoot of the same old bullsh-t. As it turns out, Brown 100% believes that Prince Harry is going to wage a campaign of chaos upon his return to the UK for the Jubbly.

Prince Harry is reported to have sparked fear within Buckingham Palace that the Duke’s return to the UK for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations will see a “campaign of chaos” unleashed. Australia’s 60 Minutes recently aired an episode entitled: “Royal family drama threatening to derail the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee” in which royal expert Tina Brown sets out her concerns about what will come from the Duke’s return to the spotlight during his trip home.

Host Liam Bartlett told 60 Minutes Australia: “Tina Brown’ sources tell her the fear in the palace is that there’s a lot of his mother in Prince Harry, and that his trip home will be used as an opportunity to continue his campaign of chaos.

Ms Brown told the programme: “In some ways, I mean, Harry’s taken up the legacy of Diana and seems to kind of lob these grenades at unexpected moments that has everybody completely off form. It’s a tragedy I think that he’s gone so off about his family, his emotions rule Harry’s head, there’s no doubt about it. There’s a deep resentment in Harry for everything that he’s been through in the past. Unfortunately in recent years, it really seems to become directed towards his family, particularly his father. Which is actually very sad, I think for Charles who I think did try to do his best in his own way as well.”

[From The Daily Express]

The thing is, Tina Brown and all of the royal commentators would love nothing more if Harry and Meghan flew in and chaos ensued. They would love it and they would spend the whole summer talking about it. Even if the Sussexes are completely committed to being low-key for the days they’re in town, the royal press machine will turn their every move, gesture, word and look into a five-alarm emergency anyway, so why not actively try to sow chaos? That’s how I feel. As for Brown’s insistence that poor, emotional, resentful Harry is obsessed with “lobbing grenades” at his family… he’s literally coming back to see his grandmother and introduce his children to his family. He is making an effort.

I waited for hours before checking in on Salt Island royal commentators. I wanted to give them a fighting chance to surprise me with their commentary on the report of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s Netflix docu-series. Keep in mind that the original reporting was from Page Six, and they put an anti-Sussex spin on what has been widely rumored for a year. They wanted to make Harry and Meghan sound like sellouts and hypocrites for, you know, producing a classy docu-series about their Archewell work, with maybe some scenes set within their Montecito mansion. Little surprise, the Daily Mail took the bait and went full-throttle negative. Apparently, Harry and Meghan are the Nu Kardashians. Nevermind that the Middletons wish they could be Kardashians. Nevermind that the Windsor sh-tshow wishes they had the Kardashians’ freedom, money and popularity.

The [reality show] format would likely suit Harry and Meghan, who have demanded control over their media messaging since emigrating in 2020. But they also demanded privacy, so a reality show has raised eyebrows amongst royal experts who have suggested it is a paradox. And with just two weeks until the Sussexes all fly into the UK for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, the story in the US will raise anxieties at Buckingham Palace that the couple will use it to fire more transatlantic potshots at the Royal Family.

The Queen’s aides are said to have already banned Harry and Meghan’s camera crews from her palaces as she marks her extraordinary 70-year reign. The couple have also been barred from the Buckingham Palace balcony for the Changing the Guard on June 2. But the Netflix team have been following them since last year, including a trip to New York compared to a royal visit and their trip to The Hague for the Invictus Games in April.

Sources suggest that the Sussexes are angling for the docuseries’ broadcast to be delayed until early next year, around the time Harry is expected to release his tell-all memoirs where he will likely have another say on Megxit as well the Sussexes’ claims that an unnamed royal was racist towards Archie and aides neglected his wife when she was suicidal and pregnant.

Royal expert Angela Levin, author of 2018 book ‘Harry: Conversations With The Prince’, said today: ‘Harry wanted privacy and to be ordinary. He also hated cameras. But he’s ended up doing an at home docuseries for Netflix. Does he need to be searched for hidden cameras on Jubilee days? Will he steal the event from the Queen?’

Australian royal commentator Daniela Elser said: ‘In only four years, the Sussexes have gone from being global darlings, resoundingly adored with desk drawers full of enterprising plans for charity projects, to reducing themselves to proto-Kardashians’.

[From The Daily Mail]

These people know as much about the docu-series as they do about Harry’s memoir: not a damn thing. They’re too busy telling on themselves to even understand that Harry and Meghan are in control. “But Harry said he hated camerassssssss!!” they wail. Yeah, he hates invasive media attention. He hates it when he and his pregnant wife are targeted by a national smear campaign. He hates it when he isn’t able to control it. He is a Virgo, after all.

Anyway, all of this drama and at the end of the day, I can’t wait to see how they do it and how the series is framed. I imagine it will be very work-focused and Archewell-focused. I hope there’s stuff in there about World Central Kitchen.

The Duchess of Cambridge joined the Earl and Countess of Wessex on Wednesday. They hosted yet another Buckingham Palace garden party. I wondered why the previous palace garden parties were hosted by (forgive me) the older royals. Surely the thousands of people who turn out to these things want to see one of the younger royals? So there was Kate, keening it up at a garden party. She wore a new coatdress and everything.

As for her styling… the coatdress is Emilia Wickstead, and I’m sure she (easily) has eleven versions of this in different colors. That being said, it’s pretty. I’ve always preferred Kate in these kinds of bright, saturated colors. She so badly wants her “signature color” to be a shade of royal blue, but she looks so much better in warm reds, corals and burgundys. She also goes pastel too often, which is a shame because look how good coral looks on her. The matching fascinator is also very good. I like her big drop earrings too. I don’t know if those are diamonds, but if they are, they are expensive!! I bet they’re white sapphires or something.

Anyway, the BP garden parties are being hosted by various royals this year because the Queen didn’t feel like doing any part of garden party szn. It’s interesting (to me) that William and Kate weren’t tasked with hosting a party together, right? I mean, Future Future King and Queen, modernizing the monarchy one button at a time, this is exactly what they should be doing. I guess not.

Today is the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s fourth wedding anniversary. Since everyone is sharing photos, I thought… why not? I think I’ve done this for their previous anniversaries too. People just like to go back and look at the photos and videos of the Sussex wedding in 2018. Plus, the wedding still feels like it’s happening, as royal commentators and royal biographers keep analyzing what was really going down behind-the-scenes.

The bride wore a gown designed by British designer Clare Waight Keller, who was then the artistic director of Givenchy. Interestingly enough, Meghan didn’t pay for her wedding gown. The cost of the Windsor wedding was picked up mostly by Prince Charles. Which means – I believe – that the royal family “owns” Meghan’s wedding gown. I bet it’s still in some royal archive and they’ll probably exhibit it from time to time. Still profiting from Meghan.

I’m also including photos of Meghan’s reception look, aka the only Stella McCartney dress I’ve ever liked. It was a custom halter gown and she looked so amazing in it. She wore Diana’s aquamarine ring too, I loved that.

I’ve been saying this for a while, but I guess it’s interesting to see Page Six confirming it: the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have shot some kind of docu-series about themselves and (I believe) their Archewell work. We knew they were wearing mic packs when they were in New York last September, and they had a film crew documenting some of their activities in New York. As the British papers freaked out about the very IDEA that Harry and Meghan could bring Netflix cameras to the godforsaken Jubbly, I kept thinking “I bet they already shot a docuseries though.” And sources say they have. Interestingly enough, this comes from Page Six, the same outlet which broke the story about Harry’s memoir. Page Six put their own nasty spin on that story too.

It’s Keeping Up with the Sussexes! Netflix will finally get its “pound of flesh” from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle with an “at-home with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex-style” docuseries, Page Six can reveal.

Hollywood insiders are abuzz about the show, but while we’re told that Netflix chiefs would like the series by the end of the year to tie in Harry’s hotly-anticipated memoir, the Sussex camp would rather it air next year.

“The timing is still being discussed, things are up in the air,” said one producer in the know.

The Sussexes, who signed on for a multi-million deal with the streamer in 2020 after moving to the US, were followed by Netflix cameras when they went to the Netherlands last month for the Invictus Games — Harry’s global games for wounded and injured servicemen and women. Netflix is making a documentary about it called “Heart of Invictus.” But they have also been shadowed for another project that will be much juicier, we’re told. The cameras have been allowed behind the scenes at their home in Montecito, Calif., and joined the Sussexes on their trip to NYC last September, as we previously revealed.

“I think it’s fair to say that Netflix is getting its pound of flesh,” said a highly placed Hollywood insider.

[From Page Six]

“I think it’s fair to say that Netflix is getting its pound of flesh” – considering that’s the exact phrasing used by multiple royal commentators, all of whom have been wailing for years about this possibility, I genuinely do not believe that the quote is from a “highly placed Hollywood insider.” And while Salt Islanders are already screaming, crying, throwing up about this, let me just say… I’m into it?? Like, this is genuinely what I hoped Harry and Meghan would do. I would love to watch a docuseries about their Archewell work and how they choose charities and what goes into it. And of course I’d also like to see more of their California life too. Come on, this will be must-see Netflix programming. That’s what Salt Island is afraid of! (Also: I’d rather the series come out this year too, especially if they were filming stuff last year.)

Happy fourth anniversary to the Sussexes!!

In Canada in the 1800s, Anglican and Catholic churches began forcibly removing Indigenous children from their families and their communities. The practice continued well into the 1960s. Children were sent to church-run boarding schools, and in recent years, people have learned even further depths of horror, as unmarked graves were found all around those boarding schools. The Indigenous communities – the First Nations – have demanded apologies from the Anglican church, from the Vatican and from the British royal family. The Queen is the head of the Church of England, and the practice of removing children from their families started when Canada was a British colony. Weeks ago, the Archbishop of Canterbury (Justin Welby) made a formal apology and he listened to survivors’ stories. Pope Francis also made a formal apology and he begged for forgiveness and he spoke movingly about intergenerational trauma.

All of which means that there is still one big formal apology missing: an apology from Queen Elizabeth II or perhaps the Prince of Wales. Charles and Camilla are doing their whirlwind Canadian tour right now, trying to fly under the radar to avoid protests or big, public flops. Clarence House repeatedly emphasized that this Canadian tour was less of a Jubbly tour and more like Charles and Camilla coming to Canada to show their respect to the First Nations communities. Charles ended up making a speech. The speech did not include the words “I’m sorry” or “on behalf of the Queen, we are so deeply sorry” or “what happened was completely horrific and there is no apology big enough, but still I offer one.” Instead, Charles yammered about reconciliation.

Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall have arrived in Canada — and the royal heir wasted no time in addressing the need to “come to terms with the darker and more difficult aspects of the past.”

Prince Charles, 73, gave a speech at the Confederation Building shortly after landing, thanking Canadians for their warm welcome as they kick off a three-day tour in honor of Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee, as Canada is one of the 14 countries outside of the U.K. where the Queen is head of state.

“It is with the greatest respect that both my wife and I begin our visit to these homelands that have been lived in and cared for by Indigenous peoples — First Nations, Métis and Inuit — for thousands of years,” he began. Prince Charles said he had spoken with the Governor-General about the “vital process” of reconciliation in the wake of the mistreatment of Indigenous people of the region, particularly the children who were forcibly relocated from the 19th century to the 1970s by the Anglican Church — of which the Queen is the head.

“As we look to our collective future, as one people sharing one planet, we must find new ways to come to terms with the darker and more difficult aspects of the past: acknowledging, reconciling and striving to do better. It is a process that starts with listening,” he said. “I have greatly appreciated the opportunity to discuss with the Governor-General the vital process of reconciliation in this country – not a one-off act, of course, but an ongoing commitment to healing, respect and understanding. I know that our visit here this week comes at an important moment — with Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples across Canada committing to reflect honestly and openly on the past and to forge a new relationship for the future.”

He added, “As we begin this Platinum Jubilee visit, which will take us from the newest member of Confederation to among the oldest communities in the North — and to a much-storied capital at the heart of a great nation — my wife and I look forward to listening to you and learning about the future you are working to build.”

After the speech, the royal couple took part “in a solemn moment of reflection and prayer at the Heart Garden, on the grounds of Government House, with Indigenous leaders and community members in the spirit of reconciliation,” Chris Fitzgerald, Deputy Private Secretary said last month. “Heart Gardens are in memory of all Indigenous children who were lost to the residential school system, in recognition of those who survived, and the families of both.”

There’s nothing wrong with doing the heavy and long work of reconciliation. But I believe the reconciliation process can only begin when facts are established and agreed upon with both sides attempting to reconcile. As in, one side needs to say: this was wrong, this was criminal, this is one of the biggest tragedies of the 19th and 20th centuries, my ancestors brutalized your ancestors and I acknowledge and apologize for the history, the wrongdoing, the crimes. Then the reconciliation process can begin. Charles isn’t doing that. When even Pope Franny and the Archbishop of Canterbury are more willing to apologize and humbly ask for mercy, what does that say about the Windsors?
