Princess Diana
Everyone's obsessed with the Royal Family right now — from The Crown to Ryan Murphy's upcoming Charles-and-Diana season of Feud, we can't get enough of the British monarchy on our TV screens. Our daily dose of Prince George and Princess Charlotte cuteness doesn't hurt things either, but beyond the scandals, the fashion, and the history, the food is actually pretty interesting, too. Their dietary habits may not be information you thought you needed in your life, but trust us: you do. We learned last week that Queen Elizabeth always travels with her favorite cake (also, is now our hero), but the monarch's former chef, Darren McGrady, has spilled even more deets on the family's diet.

Prince Charles
Prince Charles Won't Step Aside for William to Be King His biographer, Sally Bedell Smith, spent four years exhaustively researching the Prince of Wales. Sally Bedell Smith, dogged biographer and author of Prince Charles: The Passions and Paradoxes of an Improbable Life, out this week from Penguin Random House, has collected an exhaustive file of facts about the future king of England. Unlike his mother, Charles is not what you might call a beloved figure. And while Bedell Smith doesn't spare the touchy-feely, parapsychology loving, Dumbo-eared Charles, her portrait is also rich with sympathy, even affection. Bullied as a youth by his overbearing father ("Philip was the original alpha male," Smith says), Charles spent his whole life seeking approval. Cowed by a sense of duty a...
