Naked Royals: Czar Nicholas II and Courtiers bathe in the nude at Tsarskoye Selo

PRINCE Harry wasn’t the first Royal to go naked. He won’t be the last. In this photo we see Czar Nicholas II and Courtiers bathing in the nude at Tsarskoye Selo. The photo is undated. Unlike Czar Nichaolas. On 17 July 1918, as anti-Bolsheviks murdered Nicholas on the orders of Bolshevik leader Vladimir Lenin. Come the revolution…

Princess Diana – 15 years dead

DIANA Princess of Wales died 15 years ago today. Some say never died but lives on the fabled Sixth Floor of London’s Harvey Nichols department store. Her name resonates, turning the Windsors into ghosts, forever in her shadow. We like Wills and Harry because they are their sons. Diana, rejected by the ignorant pompous Windsors in life, was clutched to their bosom in death. Kate is ordained by the media to be thin and silky enough to be Diana’s successor.

The thing about Diana was that, unlike the Munsters she married into and their lackeys, she was not a snob. Nor was she self-righteous like her brother and Tony Blair, the Prime Minister at the time of her death:

“OUR RED-HOT NIGHT WITH DIRTY HARRY”

Queen ‘embarrassed’ by Aquatic Centre at London 2012

 Queen embarrassed by Aquatic Centre at London 2012GET a old of those swathes of empty seats by the Olympic swimming pool. It’s almost as if the dignitaries, freeloaders and corporate lingers didn’t bother turn up and sit down.

The Times’ David Brown frames the problem in a killer line:

The Queen saw an embarrassingly large number of gaps in the seats at the sell-out event during a surprise visit to the 17,500-capacity Aquatics Centre in the Olympic Park.

Prince William and Kate Middleton angry they’re treated like any other honeymooning celebs

wills Prince William and Kate Middleton angry theyre treated like any other honeymooning celebsCELEBRITIES get stalked like prey, night and day. It’s been like that for years and unless there’s a change in behaviour or the law, then it’ll stay that way.

Not that celebs themselves seem to understand that. For example, Kate Middleton and Prince William are reportedly furious after an Australian magazine published private pictures of their honeymoon. It would seem we’re supposed to look at Royalty in a different light than common or garden famous people.

Princes Anne gives birth to Zara Phillips – close-up photo unearthed

When the Dalia Lama met Prince Charles – photos

TODAY the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall met up with the Dalai Lama at Clarence House, London. Holiness Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama, is on a tour to promote Buddhism. Sadly, the Free Tibet concert has not forced the Chinese into leaving the Dalai Lama’s home country, meaning he cannot return the hospitality and welcome Charles into his palace. But he could follow Charles on Twitter. The Dalai Lama follows no-one on twitter. Like Eminem, who has never had Chalre sin his home, either…

The Prince of Wales greets the Dalai Lama (left) at Clarence House, London. PRESS ASSOCIATION Photo. Picture date: Wednesday June 20, 2012. Charles is a long-time supporter of the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader who is seen by China as a separatist threat. Since the heir to the throne last met the Dalai Lama, he has held discussions with China's president Hu Jintao, raising the subject of Tibet with the leader during talks in London in 2009. The senior Buddhist figure arrived at Clarence House in a chauffeur-driven car and as he stepped into the doorway of the historic home the heir to throne appeared. Charles threw up his arms then placed his hands together in a prayer sign before hugging the Dalai Lama and sharing a few words with the spiritual figurehead. See PA story ROYAL Charles.

THE Queen, Prince William and Kate Middleton, for it is ever she, have been on a trip to to Nottingham. They went to Vernon Park and larked about. The good news is that this time Her Aged Majesty got a seat, having been forced to stand for hours on end aboard a barge done up like a Thai brothel. If this is show we treat our elderly it is to the country’s eternal shame…

Princes Charles invited sex criminal Harbinder Singh Rana on the Royal Diamond Jubilee barge

 Princes Charles invited sex criminal Harbinder Singh Rana on the Royal Diamond Jubilee bargeDID you see Harbinder Singh Rana stood on the Royal barge, the Spirit of Chartwell, as it motored down the River Thames? He was Prince Charles’s guest. Harbinder Singh Rana is a convicted sex attacker. In August 1986, Rana was the vice president of the Internationan Sikh Youth Federation. He was convicted at Dudley of posing as a doctor to examine women internally.

The Mirror says this is a “security scare”, adding:

During his time on the barge, Rana came into close proximity with the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, Camilla, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.

Rana served four years for five counts of indecent assault, 11 counts of assault causing actual bodily harm and one of attempted assault. It is unlikely that he assaulted any of the Royal knobs on the boat.

The Mail adds:

The convicted sex attacker was at times during the 1,000 boat extravaganza just feet from the Queen herself.

Jubilee hit of the day: Jonathan King sings God Save The Sex Pistols

BEFORE he became a media pariah, Jonathan King hymned a reply to the Sex Pistols’ God Save The Queen. It’s called God Save The Sex Pistols, and as Madame Arcati reports, in 1977 Prince Charles liked it so much he ordered six copies. What Chas doesn’t know about the funny, ain’t worth knowing…

The UK is a giant theme park, overseen by the Queen of Diamonds*, who devours sons-and-daughters-in law faster than Sarah Ferguson at an all-you-can-eat trotter jamboree, and Gary Barlow, a singer with Take That who, having pulled himself up by the boot laces now actually lives insider Her Majesty’s bowel from where he directs Jubilee pop concerts featuring the likes of Cheryl Cole, Paul McCartney, Steve Wonder and Grace Jones.

Crown Prince Willem-Alexander caught tossing with a toilet

dutch prince Crown Prince Willem Alexander caught tossing with a toiletTO Holland, where the country’s Crown Prince Willem-Alexander has won the country’s toilet-throwing contest. The heir to the, erm, Dutch throne marked Queen’s Day by heading to Rhenen to toss a toilet. He won first place.

He tells us:

“Here in the Netherlands there are towns that take part in the throwing of toilet-bowls for a laugh. I participated with a smile, but not without shame in thinking about the some 2.6 billion people around the world that do not have this most basic infrastructure to fulfil a daily need with dignity.
