World Rowing Championship 2014 in Amsterdam - 31.08.2014
Queen Maxima and King Willem Alexander of The Netherlands and King Philippe and Queen Mathilde of Belgium attend celebrations marking the 200th anniversary of the kingdom of The Netherlands on August 30, 2014 in Maastricht, Netherlands.
The whole William and Kate leaving George at home is a bunch of bullocks. Were talking about the same person that doesn't do her job constantly to stay with her baby and now she's leaving him for 2 weeks.
Remember the 2 week holiday they took without him too.
The comments under the article are interesting and speak of this.
It just shows again that them not working because they want to spend time with George and not leave him with Nannies is ridiculous.
If they can keep leaving him for weeks with a Nanny for holidays (btw why couldn’t he go with them to their other home?) then Kate and William can leave him for an hour or two to do an engagement.
I thought after that holiday they left George, people would finally stop using him as an excuse. I don’t understand how people think she actually cares for him herself; and that’s why she doesn’t do engagements….
The Countess of Wessex is to be the guest of honour at an Islamic fashion show at Windsor Castle – including models wearing hijabs.
Islamic inspired designs will be paraded in front of Sophie – wife of Prince Edward – on a catwalk specially designed for next month’s event.
The show will take place during a dinner hosted by The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award foundation. I gather three international designers have submitted outfits including Ralph & Russo, the Australian brand favoured by the Duchess of Cambridge.

“When royals make balcony appearances, I always wonder what they are constantly pointing at. “Oh look, lots of people!” At times it seems they are pointing stuff out to each other because there is nothing better to do. It seems like a very boring life.” - Submitted by Anonymous
I actually enjoy these times and I’m sure the royals do too. It’s one of the few times we see the entire family, chatting and laughing with one another. It makes them seem more natural, which I know is an oxymoron but that’s just how I feel about it.
The 71th Annual Golden Globe Awards take place tomorrow and Helen is nominated - once again - for her performance in “Phil Spector”. This is her 12th nomination, which is a crowning achievement, especially considering that the Hollywood Foreign Press has somehow forgotten to nominate her for any of the “Prime Suspect” episodes, except for the finale in 2007. Her first nomination and win came in 1997 for “Losing Chase”, followed by nods for “The Passion of Ayn Rand”, “Gosford Park”, “Door to Door”, “The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone”, “Calendar Girls”, “Prime Suspect 7”, “The Last Station” and “Hitchcock”, as well as two more wins (both in 2007) for “Elizabeth I.” and “The Queen”. To celebrate tomorrow’s Golden Globes, clips of all of Helen’s appearances through the years have been added to the video archive. And fingers crossed that an additional clip from 2014 will follow on Monday.
