I vote for Sophie Wessex, and None of the Yorks. I really dont want them to have any influence in the Cambridge kids lives, they are such messes.
Royal family may have to watch Princess Charlotte's christening on TV like everyone else as only ONE relative is set to be named as godparent  | Daily

Some members of the royal family will be watching Princess Charlotte's christening from home tomorrow, it has emerged.

The ceremony, which will take place at 4.30pm at St Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham, is expected to be attended by immediate family, godparents and their spouses only.

Notable absentees will include Prince Harry, who is dedicating his summer to charity work in Africa, and the Duke of York, who will be in Papua New Guinea on an official visit.

It comes as it has been revealed only one relative is likely to be named as a godparent, royal sources said.

Charlotte is expected to have six godparents unlike her brother George, who has seven, they added.

Prince Harry, 30, who is helping save black rhino and desert elephants in Namibia, was told before he left that he would not be chosen, the Daily Telegraph reports.

Princess Beatrice, the 26-year-old first child and elder daughter of the Duke of York, is currently the bookies' favourite. Her younger sister Princess Eugenie is also in the running.
Luxemburger Wort - Fired maid plans book on Luxembourg's royals

A  maid fired from service at the Luxembourg royal household is suing for wrongful termination of contract and is considering writing a book about her time at the palace, according to media reports.

Luxembourg newspaper Le Quotidien on Thursday reported that the palace fired the maid in July 2014 with a notice period of six months for insubordination, mobbing and abusive behaviour towards her colleagues.

However, the maid has refuted the accusations and is now suing the royal household for wrongful termination of contract, as well as seeking 350,000 euros in damages, according to the paper.

A hearing has been scheduled for October.

The maid also revealed that she is considering writing a book about her time at the palace, which is likely to cast the Grand Ducal family and especially the Grand Duchess in an unflattering light.

Any such revelations, however, would be in violation of her contract with the palace, which implies strict professional secrecy even beyond termination of service.
Luxemburger Wort - Married Sunday, fired Monday: next US gay rights fight
Gay marriage may now be legal across the United States, but that doesn't mean people won't get fired if their boss sees the wedding photos.

A week after celebrating a landmark Supreme Court ruling overturning same-sex marriage bans in 13 states, activists are gearing up for the next stage of a decades-long battle for equal rights.

"There's a lot of work that remains," said Sarah McBride, researcher at the Center for American Progress.

Less than half of US states have laws protecting people from discrimination based on sexual orientation.

Which means that more than 50 years after the Civil Rights Act outlawed segregated lunch counters, a Tennessee hardware store owner had every right to post a sign in his window declaring "no gays allowed" on Monday.

"It's heartbreaking and it's completely shocking to folks that in a lot of instances and in a lot of places this is legal," McBride explained.

That type of overt bigotry is relatively rare because it is becoming socially unacceptable, said McBride, an expert in lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) issues.

Instead, the political rhetoric has been focused on protecting the religious freedom of business owners and government workers who don't want to serve gay couples.
Charles doesn't even know them so what would make one think that Camilla does.   :wacko:
Considering what happened to her children and their place in history I would have liked to know a lot more about her. I wonder what her stance on their Father using them and then turning away from them was.
^ You are right Eri. Charles was a virgin when he married Diana and he still is. They hatched William and Harry from an alien pod egg.   :laugh10:

Charles would never have sex that would tarnish his saintly image.
Someone is feeding the DM information. I bet DM gets an inside scoop on the christening or the tea.  :wink:

 :coy:   I wonder who recently had a story retracted that would be in the position to give inside info.   :hmm:
