Royals, royals, royals … let’s see ... *madly scrolls through google news for any updates*
As predicted, the tabloid press are pretty into retrospectives these days given that camping out in the bushes outside Buckingham Palace to snap a glimmer of Prince George is now as life threatening as we’re sure it is soul crushing.
