    My family drives, I don't, I pedal. I don't do stuff that I personally think is stupid, and that includes using the cell-phone while I'm cycling, or stuff that I think is immoral, and that includes murdering those who tick me off. My family is right-wing religious, and that is how I was brought up. However, I am left of centre atheist.

    This monarchy will change, not that I care. They have stopped beheading people so there is hope. It is all so silly. You have to back out of a room so you don't turn your back on the queen. And there is much more nonsense. I like Harry, Fergie and Diana though. Good for all of them crossing these imaginary lines.

    To be fair to Beatrice, her wedding hat may have been hideous, but after it attracted the attention it did, instead of getting upset about all the comments about how ugly it was, she put it up for auction on e-bay, where someone paid approximately $130,000 for it, and then she split the proceeds between the charities Unicef and Children in Crisis. If I remember correctly, at the time, she said that if people were going to enjoy making fun of it that much, she might as well make some money for charity with it. So she may have no fashion sense, but at least she has a sense of humor about her lack of fashion sense--and some charitable causes benefitted from it.

    Frankly the Royal family needs to get over themselves and allow these young people to live their lives!

    Hmm not that big, the media are po'd because they cant print the pictures. A bigger fuss was made when Fergie was caught in the toe sucking incident

    And good on Beatrice for doing so (Thanks! Don't know why, but for some reason, I always seem to morph her and Eugenie, so I couldn't remember specifically WHICH one of 'em it was that wore "That Hat" at the second I posted!)!

    Sure, I remember that auction, the why of it, how much that hat sold for, and the resulting dispensing of the funds to those charities. Matter of fact, when the hat was being auctioned off, I CLEARLY recall going on eBay to take a look for myself, because I couldn't BELIEVE the figures I'd just read online that were being reported. At the time, the posting was up, and my jaw dropped.

    So, no question at all that Bea has a sense of humor about her lack of fashion sense. I, myself, have a sense of humor and no fashion sense, as well. So, while I am not of Royal blood with the ability to mine gold from my castoff jeans, etc., yes, I totally got what happened with "That Hat".

    But, facts are facts.

    In THIS instance, Bea DID take advantage of that lack of fashion sense, and made hay while the sun shone through using it for philanthropy. And, again, good on her for doing so!

    BUT . . .

    Bless their hearts, like their mother before them, Beatrice and Eugenie are consistently known for NOT being la creme de la creme when it comes to being fashionistas. Even with all that money and high-fashion designers at their disposal, the ladies in question DO miss the mark on more occasions, than not.

    So, yeah, apparently sweet girls though they may very well be, they ARE usually viewed singly and together as jokes of the British Royal family, via fashion. Which was the original point of my post, I think. NOT intentional or unintentional fairness regarding how her/their fashion mistakes are used to benefit those in need (which, this is the only time I recall either of them doing something like this so publicly, if at ALL, BTW).

    And can anyone say: "Princess Anne?"

    Apparently, she's very much revamped her long-held standing as one of the nastiest, most ill-tempered British Royals around, and is now well-known for how very hard she works each year for charities that SHE is patron of, I believe.

    Great lady!

    But fashion sense?

    Far as THAT goes, the only taste she seems to have in THAT area is in her mouth. And it's been that way for her for years and YEARS.

    So, in that respect, Anne could ALSO be viewed as a British Royal joke.

    Just as Harry might wind up being viewed if he doesn't rein himself in, at some point.

    And no, none of them are losing any sleep or getting headaches about MHO, but, then again, they ARE public people on the world stage.
