HRH Prince William of Wales and Miss Catherine Middleton Attend a Christmas Gala Together.

On December 18, 2010, HRH Prince William and his fiancee, Catherine Middleton stepped out together for the second time since the announcement of their engagement.

The couple were in Thursford, England to attend the Thursford Christmas Spectacular Gala.  The event was a fundraiser for young people with Cancer.  During the gala singers and dancers performed to the delight of the future King and Queen of England.

Miss Middleton wore a black and white dress with her trademark blazer.  Prince William wore a navy suit and red tie.  The couple seemed to be happy; however it is evident that Miss Middleton was overwhelmed with the attention.  Better get used to it, toots.  It will only get worse.

HRH Crown Princess Máxima and the G20 SME Finance Challenge

This past Wednesday, HRH Crown Princess Máxima of the Netherlands attended the G20 SME Finance Challenge in Eikenhorst, Netherlands.

The purpose of the event was to honor the winners of the G20 SME Finance Challenge.  There were three winners who received an award “…for their innovative plans for SMEs in developing countries.”  Awesome.

Meanwhile, le sigh, Crown Princess Máxima (Messy-ma) continues to amaze everyone on planet Earth with her hideous fashion choices and unwashed hair.  I pray that Santa Claus will give her a lifetime supply of Frederic Fekkai shampoo and conditioner and while Mr. Claus is at it… may he steal her orange blush so Máxima will never abuse that unfortunate product again.

TRH Prince Felipe and Princess Letizia of Asturias At the Real Academia de la Lenga

This afternoon TRH Prince Felipe and Princess Letizia of Asturias were at the Academia de la Lengua in Madrid, Spain.  The couple were apart of the presentation of “… the new spelling of Spanish Language…”

According to the Spanish channel, RTVE.es:

One of the novelties of the new spelling is that Prince is written in lowercase p. All titles, positions or employment of any rank are common, and therefore should be initial lower case. Examples include king and pope.

Here is a video clip, in Spanish, with some explanations.
