It’s Sunday and you know what that means, right?
It’s cheesy movie day! Here is the 1993 flick starring Serena Scott Thomas as the late Diana, Princess of Wales.
On Sunday, July 14, 2013, Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden celebrated her 36th birthday.
In the morning, the crown princess accompanied by His Royal Highness Prince Daniel of Sweden and Her Royal Highness Princess Estelle, and Their Majesties King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden welcomed hundreds of well-wishers to Solliden Slott on the island of Öland who came out to wish the crown princess a very happy birthday. Whew! Long sentence. Sorry about that.
Anyway, in the late afternoon the crown princess couple along with Their Majesties and Her Royal Highness Princess Madeleine of Sweden and Mr. Christopher O’Neill arrived Borgholms Idrottsplats on Öland to attend the Victoriadagen concert and festivities.

On the evening of July 13, 2013, Their Serene Highnesses Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene of Monaco arrived at the Salle des Etoiles in Monte-Carlo to attend the Million Dollar Super Four Final boxing match.
The lovely princely couple along with hundreds of attendees clapped and cheered as Khabib Allahkhverdiev of Russia and Souleymane M’Baye of France beat the living crap out of each other until they were both black, blue, and incredibly bloody for the WBA & IBO Super Lightweight World Title.
So who won the fight (by the way, I hate boxing. It’s a stupid “sport”)? Khabib Allakhverdiev in the 11th round.
