Princess Diana
A Batch of letters written by Princess Diana to her personal secretary, Jane Parsons M.B.E., is going to be auctioned off in April. The contents of the correspondence reveal, as the auction house puts it, an “intimate glimpse into the marriage” of Prince Charles and the late Princess. In the letter that is sure to generate the most interest, dated August 15, 1981, Diana writes from her honeymoon, on Royal Yacht Britannia–crested paper: “The honeymoon was a perfect opportunity to catch up on sleep….” (Expect at least an entire episode of Ryan Murphy’s upcoming Charles-and-Diana–focused Feud season to be spent on just this detail alone.) Other intriguing tidbits gleaned from the letters: — Prince William received 4,500 baby presents on the occasion of his birth (and there were a total o

Inside the $10,000 Look Kate Middleton Wore in Paris Kate Middleton isn’t afraid to wear a piece more than once. Nope. Her Royal Highness might splurge on a custom design every once in awhile, but she makes sure she gets the return from it, wearing the pieces multiple times. The result is a well-curated wardrobe that can pack quite the price tag. Take, for example, one of her latest looks on the Paris stop of the royal tour. In this look, the statement piece was no doubt the Chanel dress, in a nod to French fashion. Though the price isn’t available at the moment, we’ll wager it was quite expensive. The piece seems to be bespoke, as we can’t find it in the latest collections, but an eagle-eyed Twitter user pointed out that it’s possible that it’s a take on a look from the brand’s pre-sp

SEBASTIAN SHAKESPEARE: Pippa's pooches get fit: Duchess of Cambridge's sister is seen jogging in London as it's revealed future brother-in-law Spencer Matthews won't be allowed a plus-one at her wedding It's not just Pippa Middleton who will be in shape by the time of her ‘wedding of the year’ in May. The Duchess of Cambridge’s younger sister was spotted taking two dogs with her as she went jogging in West London. Her black cocker spaniel, Rafa (thought to named after Spanish tennis heart-throb Rafael Nadal), was on one thick rope lead while her fiance James Matthews’s black Labrador was on the other. And it’s not only the animals kept on a tight leash. I hear her future brother-in-law, louche reality TV star Spencer Matthews, has been banned from taking any of his squeezes to their B

Meghan Markle laying low after 'Suits,' will join Prince Harry in philanthropic endeavours There has been a fair amount of speculation regarding what American actress Meghan Markle will do as her relationship with Prince Harry continues. Many outlets have reported that she will continue with her acting career, but it looks as if she may have changed her mind and will opt for a quieter life that the public is more used to seeing of the royals and their partners. “Even before Harry, she was starting to think about transitioning out of acting,” a source told E! News last week. “She wants to focus on other worldly endeavours she is passionate about, like her philanthropy.” Meghan is currently filming the seventh season of “Suits” in Toronto, and the publication questioned if it would be h

Prince William and Kate showed their love of sports as they attended the Wales vs France Six Nations rugby match on Saturday. The royals, who are nearing the end of their fleeting 24-hour visit to Paris, were guests of honour at the match in the Stade de France. The outing marked William’s first engagement as Patron of the Welsh Rugby Union since Her Majesty The Queen stepped down as its patron in December 2016. His wife Kate showed her support for the Welsh team, choosing to don a bright red Carolina Herrera coat, which she has previously worn during her royal tour of Canada last year. The Duchess beat the chill in a black turtleneck jumper and black gloves, and looked to be thoroughly enjoying the match as she chatted to her fellow spectators and cheered Wales on. Earlier in the da
