William & Kate have released a statement that, in lieu of gifts, they encourage well-wishers to donate to charity.  Here’s our way of welcoming Baby Cambridge to the world.  The online royal community, spearheaded by 5 blogs, launched the Baby Cambridge Fundraiser in behalf of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).  The Duchess of Cambridge is Royal Patron to this charity.  Read more on this wonderful initiative here.  So far we have raised more than £5,000.

Over the past months, we have rolled out fun activities to help augment the fundraiser in the form of auctions, giveaways and competitions. Below are more ways to help our cause:

Imogen Sheeran, the mother of the famous Ed Sheeran, is a HUGE supporter of EACH. She designed the EACH charity bracelet famously worn by Kate during her visit to one of their hospices. Ed himself wears many of his mum’s designs. Imogen was so kind to collaborate with one of our directors for some beautiful handcrafted pieces – 40% of the sales will go to EACH.  So treat yourself to something pretty and help our fundraising efforts on the side. For fans of Ed, this is also an exciting time as he recently announced headlining a show in Madison Square Garden & mentoring for The Voice. Click here to read more.

The Queen’s Jubilee… Kate’s Fashion… Security Cuts…

Britons rejoice! We’re looking forward to a four-day weekend next year to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

Ministers and Buckingham Palace will announce the official timetable of events marking the monarch’s 60 years on the throne within the week – with highlights including a nationwide Sunday lunch and a river pageant. Putting back the annual May Bank Holiday to Monday, 4 June, next year, and adding a special Jubilee Bank Holiday on Tuesday, 5 June, gives everyone a 4-day weekend. An announcement confirming the plans is expected on Thursday.

Millions are expected to join the celebrations next year, which will begin on Saturday – 2 June. Ministers hope they will kick start a “feelgood” summer which will climax with the Olympic Games in the capital.

Security Cuts hit the Wessexes

The Earl and Countess of Wessex are to lose their team of six protection officers as part of moves to cut the £100 million cost of Royal security. Prince Edward and Sophie are said to be “very unhappy” about the proposal to strip them of police protection when they are not on official engagements. They plan to dispute the decision.

The Wessexes have six protection officers who work on a rolling rota, which costs the taxpayer an estimated £1.15 million a year.  Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie have also been reported to lose their personal bodyguards to cut costs, although Prince Andrew is trying to contest the decision due to their HRH status.

Princess Catherine meets Michelle Obama

So the Duchess of Cambridge reignited a buying frenzy the minute pictures of her and Prince William meeting the Obamas were released. Several articles about this:

But despite all this, studies show that Princess Catherine has actually been outpipped by little sister Pippa in the media following her wedding. As she and Prince William found recluse in their honeymoon (they are said to have been photographed but the press has decided NOT to publish any pictures — wonderful!), Pippa has been followed around London and Madrid, and featured in newspapers, TV shows and websites. Pippa has, statistically, become the more popular Middleton. And wondering who made Pippa’s gorgeous green dress at William & Kate’s reception? Meet Alice Temperley.

Harry!

At last, a sighting of Prince Harry. He and cousin Princess Eugenie were spotted leaving Public nightclub. The club is run by good friend Guy Pelly. Harry and Eugenie both left with drinks stains on their clothes.  No sign of on-off girlfriend Chelsy Davy, who is reportedly on a road trip around Europe.
