Chelsy Blue

This is “Blue Monday”, the unhappiest day of the year. But, as the Mail says, if anyone can cope with the anguish of it all it is the British.

With our stiff upper lips, ingenuity and prescription drugs in handy screw-top containers, we will not be undone. In any case, Blue Monday comes wrapped in Chelsy blue.

And you too can get the look with some retail therapy. “Chelsy joins the Topshop brigade,” says the Mail’s front-page.

Prince Harry’s blonde lover is in a dress. This dress costs £38 in the aforesaid high street outfitters, and, judging by the length of its hem and the amount of leg on show, that works out at a frugal £5 an inch.

But before you rush out and buy one, know that you run the risk of being seen as a copycat. No-one wants to be an imitator, unless you’re Hale & Pace; no-one wants to be the Dannielle Lloyd to Jade Goody’s mould-breaking reality; no-one wants to be Princess Diana’s stunt double.

And the Mirror notes that Chelsy’s dress is not all that dissimilar to one worn recently by Kate Middleton.

Kate is, of course, Prince William’s, girlfriend. And Kate was seen out and about in a £40 black and white tunic.

Middleton’s dress is also available in Topshop. At least it was until, as the Mirror says, “wannabes” snapped it up online and it sold out.

So for Kate’s dress with its five-pronged leaf design, a look seemingly inspired by a marijuana leaf, we have Chelsy in swirls.

And perhaps we have Chelsy in tears as she waves goodbye to her prince. Harry is on a two-day course to prepare him for life in Iraq.

Harry may not be heading to the frontline, as the Star reports, but he is set to be dispatched to a war zone.

Over there Harry will don his uniform of khaki with flecks of black, or, perhaps, a more desert-themed beige outfit, as he once favoured.

But inside, Harry, like the rest of us, will be feeling blue…
