Harry isn't left handed too, is he? I'm pretty sure William is.
I've never much cared about the royals. But if some of them are left handed, I may suddenly be interested. Yes, I'm a proud lefty.

The Internets tell me that both Prince Charles and William are left-handed as were King George VI and Queen Victoria (not surprising since it runs in families.) I'm also a proud left-hander, who collects random facts on this topic so I learned something new tonight!

Well, that's good to know. I may not have a choice in who my monarch is, but at least in some small way I approve of them. :)

I love how much fun they all seem to be having. It's like during the Olympics, when the three of them did a lot of events together. That look of glee on Kate's face when she's waving her wand is fantastic.

Bonnie Wright was there and she told Harry he should join the Weasley family.

Reason Kate should be thankful she married Will no. adsjkflg: I am reading back to back bio's of Anne Boyelyn and according to everybody she was deposed (no Shit) BUT the kicker is that according to Wier, she may have been PREGNANT.
That's right, the baby that Henry wanted (and killed Thomas More, etc. to get) may have been on the way, but because Anne wouldn't shut up about the dissolution of the monastic property (she wanted reform for PR, Cromwell wanted the money for the coffers) Cromwell had her deposed and the Witnesses at her and Henry's wedding were ALSO the guys she was supposed to be cheating with...so they had all the people who could have testified that her child was legit BEHEADED with her ON purpose, so she couldn't mount a claim to the throne through her unborn BABY if, IF it was a boy. After she was dead, the north rose in revolt anyway, but Henry gave the new lands to a new crop of nobles who didn't have a better claim than he did. OoooooHHHHHHHH I am freaking yall.
Where is Cleo, I need to TudorGeek the fuck out...

Once again, technology amazes me. I was still awake early this morning and watched the abdication ceremony of Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands from a live Reuters stream on my iPad. (Couldn't stay up for the investiture ceremony for now King Willem-Alexander because I had to sleep but I doubt they missed me.)

Watching historical moments like this really amazes me. Plus, seeing all the crown prince and/or princesses of Europe and Asia at such an event is fascinating. Especially when they break out all the major jewelery. Yowza!

The Fug Girls have slideshows from the various events surrounding the abdication/investiture. With commentary on the outfits, of course. Queen Maxima's diamond-and-sapphire tiara must be seen to be believed. She and the little princesses were stunning in sapphire blue.

Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden had an absolutely amazeballs hat.

Between the Sartorial Splendor blog and the Royal Forums, I'm on monarchy overload. Posts about history, jewelry, fashion, genealogy, politics...it's a massive time waster.

I love what Princess Mary of Denmark wears. I'm biased, because we're both Australian, but I think she always looks incredibly chic and pretty, no matter what the occasion.

I didn't realize the wedding had already taken place!

I'm a bit disappointed by Madeleine's dress. It's beautiful, but... blah.

To me, the contemporary golden standard is Kate's HRH The Duchess of Cambridge's.

Another royal abdication in Europe, citing age and health.

Apparently her due date is mid-July so Baby Cambridge should be arriving anytime in the next few weeks. The media is already starting to camp out outside the hospital. I can't help but wish it would rain on them every single day until Kate goes into labor.

This country is about to go baby nuts, and I am going to love it. I have no idea what's happened to me, I used not to care one jot about the royal family, but now I'm a pageant watching, jubilee celebrating loon. If you gave me a tiny plastic flag I would probably wave it.

I'm watching BBC World News right now, and it's hilarious. "Baby baby baby!" "Oh, yeah, new Prime Minister in Japan, earthquake in China, Pope in Brazil." "Baby baby BABY!!"

And the (St. Paul, Minnesota) Pioneer Press just tweeted that IT'S A BOY!

Aren't they supposed to fire off cannons or something? I have to leave to run some errands, but I don't want to miss any pomp or circumstance!

I'm hearing the 41 and 61 gun salutes will be done tomorrow, but I haven't heard what time.

Of course, the moment I turn off the TV to go get a shower and get ready for work is when they announce the baby's birth.  My timing is impeccable!  

Welcome to the world little prince!

ETA:  The salutes will be at 2pm London time.  I think that's 9am EST if my times are right.

I would like to point out this is a golden opportunity to have a King Tiberius I. Just putting that out there.
