Well, apologies again for being late to the party, but it’s been that kind of week…and it’ll be that kind of next week if we’re being really honest. HOWEVER, there’s no way I’m going to skip the opening day of Ascot, particularly when the Duchess of Sussex showed up for the first time, so let’s catch up!

Royal news was dominated this week by the wedding afterglow and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s first engagement as a married couple on Tuesday. Even so, there was actually a good bit activity from other members of the Royal family, so I’ve decided to wrap it up here!

So, the big news from the weekend is that plans are already in the works for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to take over a larger apartment in Kensington Palace. As you may recall, around the time their engagement was announced last November, it was stated that the couple would remain at their current residence, Nottingham Cottage, for the time being. And so they will, but plans are reportedly underway for them to take over Apartment 1 within Kensington Palace, placing them next door to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

We still don’t know the name of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s new baby. It was expected to be announced Tuesday or Wednesday, however with the latter being Anzac Day it wasn’t wholly surprising that Kensington Palace held off. That they still haven’t made an announcement means that this will be the longest gap between a birth and a name announcement for any of William and Kate’s children.

While we were busy covering the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in Sweden and Norway last week, the rest of the British Royal Family was still conducting business as usual. We had television interviews, other foreign tours and wedding dates set while the rest of us were busy tracking Kate’s battle against floral Erdem dresses, so let’s catch up.

First and foremost, as we’ve discussed, this was a very busy January for Kate. Even taking away the tour, she carried out more engagements this month than she ever has for the month of January in the past. But more importantly, the entirety of the BRF’s workload is on the upswing.

Royal Roundup: Autumn Dates, Possible Tours & the Yorks

I have gone out of my way to mostly ignore Sarah, Duchess of York (Prince Andrew’s ex-wife) due to the old adage, “If you don’t have anything nice to say…” Indeed, it’s for this same reason that I usually only reference Andrew when he happens to have attended a large family event. The only exception to this is a post from early last year that covered memorable public statements made by Andrew pertaining to the roles of his daughters in the “slimmed down” monarchy model that the Prince of Wales is said to favor.

My reason for writing that post was that it was particularly newsworthy and it is for that same reason I find myself circling back to the York family again today. So, here we go:
