Don’t ask me to explain all of the royal baby fever – because I can’t. I can’t logically explain why as a child I loved watching Princess Diana get married, I can’t explain why I wept for days when she died and I can’t explain why I hold a special place in my heart for her kids. I just do, okay? Something about William choosing the nanny that Diana chose for him touches my heart. More
Topic: Kate Middleton
Adjust your shock accordingly because there is not a legion of lovely childcare providers tending to Prince George‘s every whimper. This silly yank just assumed that nannies were royal baby protocol. But Kate Middleton and Prince William are doing this baby thing the way many American parents do. With four hands and maybe some extra help now and again. More
Last we heard from Heidi Agan, the professional Kate Middleton lookalike and mother of two, she was testing out her prosthetic baby bumps to keep up with the duchess’s pregnancy. But now that Royal Bump Watch is over and Prince George is among us, naturally Heidi has procured a doll as well. But she’s not so keen on taking it with her to the metaphoric office. More
One of the gripes I sometimes hear from some Mommyish readers upon properly investigating Kate Middleton‘s chic pregnancy shawls or her many maternity looks is that she is not a “princess.” That she is a “duchess.” While I’m fully aware of K Middy’s title, as well as her son’s title, as well as her husband’s title, she is nevertheless a princess of princessy parameters. And given how Kate handled some recent paperwork regarding Prince George’s birth, she apparently agrees with me.
This week, Royal Baby Madness took center stage — at least, in my STFU, Parents inbox it did — as millions of people anticipated the birth of William and Kate’s baby, finally. After what felt like two years of waiting, the world was given its Simba. Some people were so consumed with the Royal Baby, they even found time to criticize the new parents on their car seat usage, proving once again that parenthood today comes chock full o’ judgment whether you’re a plebeian or official royalty. Ah, modernity! Social media gives us all the ability to comment on everything, and the discussion surrounding the Royal Baby’s highly publicized birth was no exception. More
You mommies and daddies move fast. Little Princeling George wasn’t even named when we met him two days ago. But while some people were fixated on P.O.C’s car seat, others were scouring the Internetsphere for the exact blanket he was nestled in. The former seem to have bought up every single one of those blankets, which means NONE left for Eve and I. You guys suck. More
I hope that the outrage over the OK magazine and Daily Mail headlines causes a shift in the way we treat new mothers, even celebrity ones. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again and I will say it until my voice is broken: All that matters is that the new mom is happy and healthy and healing well. It doesn’t matter what she looks like, what her weight is, or whether or not she is in the same size she was before giving birth. More
All eyes were notably on Kate Middleton and Prince William as they sauntered down the hospital steps with their newborn George Alexander Louis. So it’s rather predictable that among myself, Eve Vawter, and the rest of the world, there was also the Mommy Police — also known as the rabid Internet mommies who are checking your baby’s car seat in your Facebook photos. Will and Kate. They’re just like us!
It’s disgusting enough that women who are not pregnant and who didn’t just have a baby get scrutinized for how they look and how their bodies look on a second-by-second basis. Having these conversations about a woman who just went through labor less than two days ago ( I HAVE MILK IN MY REFRIGERATOR OLDER THAN THE FUTURE KING OF ENGLAND) is something we all need to refuse to participate in. I’m utterly sick of this entire conversation. More
Kate Middleton, Prince William, and their freshly born future King of England have finally left the hospital where the couple indulged in some postpartum pizza cravings. But although the royal couple have yet to decide or announce a name for the original P.O.C, one lady is keeping her mouth shut on baby name suggestions. And that fabulous person is Kate’s mom Carole.
I hope this is the last we see of the Cambridges and their baby for a while. This new family deserves their privacy and to get used to their new roles as parents, and to prepare their baby for the fact that he will one day be the King Of England. If I see any post-baby body weight shaming posts about Kate , I’ll punch someone in the throat. More
I have no information on whether our very favorite guard was involved in this pizza fetching or not. Nor do I know what sort of pizzas were ordered, but because they are in London I bet they are really good pizzas. I suppose there is a chance that these pizzas weren’t even delivered to the royal parents, and like maybe Pippa wanted pizza or something, but because it fits into the narrative I want to believe I shall go with what the Daily Mail claims. I love thinking of these adorable new parents cooing over the little princeling and noshing on pizza, just like they are all domestic and common like the rest of us. More
We’re all hoping that laboring Kate Middleton is faring okay over there in the princess birthing suite with satellite TV and wifi. But while we may not be getting minute to minute cervical updates (to which, Eve Vawter says WHY NOT?!), we do know that Kate Middleton had the perinatal sense to have both her mother and sister kindly wait outside the birthing fortress.
