To the delight of the crowds and royal watchers, the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge made a surprise visit to Wimbledon today. Both are tennis fans — particularly Kate, who has been to Wimbledon a couple of times. A “private” visit, the newlyweds look happy smiley as they sat on the royal box watching British #1 Andy Murray beat Richard Gasquet in straight sets. The couple also saw part of the Nadal-Müller match.
In the sweltering heat, Princess Catherine looked fresh as a daisy in a white, sleeveless Alice Temperley “Moriah” dress with pleats (Sorry, already sold out online, as expected). William wore his usual blue suit. Must have been hot! Nevertheless, the royal pair looked to enjoy their tennis date and even joined in on the Mexican wave.

William, Kate, Harry NOT going to New Zealand for Rugby World Cup this year. A palace spokeswoman says: “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry were all very pleased and honoured to be invited, in a private capacity. They have considered the matter, and with regret, they’ll be unable to attend owing to their military pressures. The Duke of Cambridge will spend the autumn concentrating on his search and rescue career, as he builds up flying hours and passes the necessary examinations to allow him to obtain captaincy at some point in 2012, and Prince Harry’s course at Wattisham and in the USA doesn’t really afford him any time to attend.“ NZ Prime Minister John Key said he’s disappointed with their absence but understands and welcomes them in a future time.
Newsweek Cover: Diana at 50. The late Princess Diana would have turned 50 this July 1, and as a (tacky) tribute, Newsweek has a photoshopped cover of a digitally aged Diana alongside daughther-in-law Kate. The article includes hypothetical stories of what would she be like had she lived — living in New York, Tweeting, Facebooking, reconciled with Camilla, married twice more, initially threatened by Kate’s popularity but now a BFFs with Carole Middleton… Seriously, the article is neither flattering nor tasteful. On the flip side, here’s a better tribute to the Princess of Wales and what would have been: Diana: forever young and beautiful.
Prince Harry is 100% single! Ring out the bells. According to the Mail, Harry has declared he’s not dating anyone at the moment and is 100% single. He also says he’s too busy with work for love. So I guess this confirms his off-again status with Chelsy Davy. Funny enough, the media is making a bigger deal of him confirming that he isn’t dating Pippa Middleton than confirming he’s broken up with Chelsy.
