Random info: Whenever I see the word “doctor” followed by the word “who” in a sentence, I automatically think of Doctor Who, the television show. I’m a Whovian.
There is some random Kate and William bits to report:
- Prince William knighted the man who delivered Prince George. Sir Marcus Setchell (as he is now known) was made a Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order yesterday at Buckingham Palace. William performed the investiture. Setchell saved the lives of Sophie, Countess of Wessex and Lady Louise Windsor in 2003, when he delivered Louise a month early via cesarean. Sophie almost died. If Setchell was going to be knighted, he should have been knighted for that, not for delivering George. I do love that Setchell is so “I don’t give a sh-t” about delivering George. He said, “[delivering George was] just the same pleasurable, lovely experience [as every other delivery].” Links: Express article. Telegraph article.
- William and Kate have reportedly made a donation of £5,000 to the town of Rhyl in
Angleseysomewhere in Wales that is near Anglesey to help with the flooding and flood victims. It was a “private” donation. I don’t know what that means and don’t know where the money came from. This is good, I guess, right? The number’s kind of small, though. They spent more on their vacation. Links: Telegraph article.
- William, Kate and Harry attended a black tie, Chairman’s dinner at Buckingham Palace Monday night a Patrons of the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry (damn that name is a mouthful). Kate wore a long, white dress. Links: Rebecca English twitter. Richard Palmer twitter. Niraj Tanna twitter.
