On Friday, the Cambridges’ tour of Germany and Poland passed away peacefully in its sleep. It was five days old. The tour is survived by Kate Middleton’s Poland/Germany wardrobe which cost a grand total of £26,000 ($33,787.00 in USD) according to an article in the Daily Mail.
To my surprise Friday’s Twitter hashtag #DAMNTour had nothing to do at all with Cambridges.
Friday was an even lighter day than the rest of this ridiculous farce of a so-called “Brexit charm offensive” with Prince William and Kate Middleton checking out the Maritime Museum, stopping by the Elbphilarmonie Concert Hall where Kate was invited pick up a baton and play conductor and visiting Airbus where Prince George got to tour an EC 145, just like the one Prince William sometimes shows up to co-pilot for East Anglia Air Ambulance when he needs the PR.
Doesn’t the UK have Take Your Son to Pretend Work Day?
The excitement was too much for Prince George who spontaneously morphed into a Hummel figurine in a nod to the host country.
Kate wore a custom Emilia Wickstead dress in lavender, which is a terrible color on her. No amount of clown blush could keep Kate from looking washed out. Kate matched her dress to Prince George’s shirt and her raspberry Anya Hindmarch clutch to Princess Charlotte’s dress. We get it, you’re together.
Some say Charlotte threw herself on the tarmac as part of a temper tantrum, but I’m sure somewhere a conspiracy theorist is convinced she was pushed.
In honor of Prince George’s birthday today, Kensington Palace released a portrait of George taken by Chris Jackson, the photographer husband of Kate’s assistant/stylist Natalie Archer.
I’m still not sure what the point was of this whole Germany/Poland tour, but I think Kensington Palace should have a contest and the person who comes up with the most credible-sounding answer should get to keep Kate’s tour wardrobe. Most of the clothing was hideous but some of the jewelry wasn’t totally terrible. Maybe it could be returned for store credit.
