Princess Charlotte Starts Preschool, Poses for Cutest Photos EVER

The world may be anxiously awaiting the birth of Kate Middleton’s third child, but we’d like to take a moment and pay tribute to her second child.

Not because there’s anything wrong with Princess Charlotte, of course.

But because there’s so much right with the two-year old.

Namely, she is REALLY cute!

On Monday morning, the toddler started her run at Willcocks Nursery School, which is situated next door to London’s Royal Albert Hall and which is very close to her family’s Kensington Palace home.

In recognition of the life milestone, the Royal Family unveiled two new portraits of Charlotte, who turns three years old on May 2.

And, in a fun little twist, both were snapped by Middleton herself!

“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share two photographs of Princess Charlotte at Kensington Palace this morning,” said a Palace spokesman along with the snapshots, adding:

“The images were taken by The Duchess shortly before Princess Charlotte left for her first day of nursery at the Willcocks Nursery School.”

Seriously, Kate, it’s not enough for you to be beautiful, fashionable, and, by all accounts, charitable and kind?

You must be an ace photographer as well?!?

Charlotte posed for the very cute photos on the steps outside her Kensington Palace residence, holding on to a railing in the picture immediately above.

The tiny Royal donned a $ 150 burgundy Razorbil wool coat by Amaia and paired  itwith stone-colored tights, red shoes and a matching red bow.

She carried a pink backpack by Cath Kidston.

Saying of Charlotte’s famous parents, an insider told People Magazine:

“They chose [this school] because they thought it would be an ideal first step for Charlotte’s education and they were impressed by the team who work there.”

Makes sense. That’s basically why any parents would choose any school.

Charlotte’s older brother, Prince George, started nursery school at the same age as Charlotte, back in in January of 2016.

(He’s now four years old. How crazy is that?!?)

George attended a Montessori school just a short drive from the family’s country house, Anmer Hall.

He began his educational life on a part-time basis, however, while Charlotte will be attending full time. She’s clearly serious about school already.

This is all very exciting, of course. And we wish Charlotte the best.

But the real exciting news for her parents is that they are about to become parents again!

She’s due in April and may be having twins, which, if true, would more or less cause the Internet to explode.

And right after Kate gives birth, Prince Harry will marry Meghan Markle.

Indeed, it’s a very busy time for members of the Royal Family.

Princess Charlotte: See the New Official Portrait!

We interrupt the latest talk over Kate Middleton’s next child to bring you an update on one of her current children.

And that update is twofold:

  1. Princess Charlotte is about to turn two years old.
  2. Princess Charlotte is adorable!

Middleton and her handsome husband, Prince William, have released a new official photo of their daughter, just one day before she celebrates a birthday.

In the precious snapshot, which was taken by her beloved mother  on the grounds of the family’s Norfolk home, Charlotte’s longer hair is held back by a medium-sized navy bow.

She’s rocking a yellow cardigan that is perfect for the spring.

And she has an inscrutable, half-smirk across her lips that makes little Charlotte look older than she really is.

See for yourself:

In a statement, William and Kate said they were “delighted to share” the photo, as they thanked “everyone for all of the lovely messages they have received, and hope that everyone enjoys this photograph of Princess Charlotte as much as they do.”

Here is the statement in full:

“The Duke and Duchess are very pleased to share this photograph as they celebrate Princess Charlotte’s second birthday.

Their Royal Highnesses would like to thank everyone for all of the lovely messages they have received, and hope that everyone enjoys this photograph of Princess Charlotte as much as they do.”

Charlotte, of course, has a brother named George and her parents have done an admirable job shielding both of these toddlers from the spotlight.

The last time we heard from Charlotte, in fact, she had just turned a year old.

Last May, Middleton and William also released a few new portraits of Charlotte, with the one immediately below likely being our favorite of the bunch:

Kensington Palace has not yet revealed how the family plans to celebrate Charlotte’s birthday tomorrow.

But you can guess how the Internet will celebrate the occasion:

By searching like crazy for stories about Kate Middleton being pregnant and trying to determine for certain whether the Duchess is once again expecting a Royal Cutie.

In general, this has been a big year for Charlotte.

She traveled on her first royal tour in September… and the world got their first glimpse at her fun and independent personality during her first public playdate in Canada.

There was also a publicized walk to church on Christmas morning, which preceded what will be her most-watched walk to date:

On May 20, Charlotte will serve as a bridesmaid in aunt Pippa Middleton’s wedding.

We’re already dying of cuteness just thinking about it.

But consider yourself warned:

This will ruin the rest of your day. You will stop being productive once you get a look at various images of this famous munchkin above. She’s just that adorable!


Charlotte Rae Diagnosed With Bone Cancer

Charlotte Rae has been diagnosed with bone cancer. 

The 91-year-old actress confirmed the news in an emotional statement to PEOPLE.

“Last Monday, I found out I have bone cancer,” the Facts of Life star revealed.

“About seven years ago, I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer — which is a miracle that they found it because usually, it’s too late. My mother, sister and my uncle died of pancreatic cancer. After six months of chemotherapy, I was cancer-free. I lost my hair, but I had beautiful wigs. Nobody even knew.

“So now, at the age of 91, I have to make up my mind. I’m not in any pain right now. I’m feeling so terrific and so glad to be above ground,” she explains.

“Now I have to figure out whether I want to go have treatment again to opt for life. I love life. I’ve had a wonderful one already. I have this decision to make.”

She was supposed to start treatment on Thursday, but has confirmed she’s going to think on it for a while. 

“I wanted to think about it first,” she says.

“I think I’m going to go for it. The side effects were not too bad when I did it originally. I’ve had a great life, but I have so many wonderful things happening. I’d like to choose life. I’m grateful for the life I’ve already had.”

Charlotte has a career in the industry that dates all the way back to 1954. She got her first big break on The United States Steel Hour as Ramona. 

Her most recent appearance was on Disney Channel’s recently canceled, Girl Meets World. 

Rae released a memoir in 2015 that chronicled some key events in her life, while confirming that she had a very positive outlook on life. 

“At 91, every day is a birthday,” she says. “[In my book] I want to tell everybody to celebrate every day, to savor the day and be good to yourself, love yourself, and then you can be good to others and be of service to others.”

We wish Charlotte a speedy recovery. 


Charlotte McKinney Considers Breast Reduction; World Weeps

If you’re familiar with Charlotte McKinney, it’s probably because of her giant, awesome boobs.

We’re sure the 23-year-old model has many other fine qualities as well, but we’ve never sat down over tea and scones to discuss her thoughts on the global poitical climate.

We have, however, seen Charlotte nude on several occasions, and each time it was glorious.

Sadly, the Charlotte we know and lust after may soon be undergoing a major transformation, and it’s all because people on social media are jackasses.

This is why we can’t have nice things, Internet!

In a surprisingly candid interview with Ocean Drive magazine, Charlotte opened up about being bullied as a teen, and the ways in which the mistreatment at the hands of haters has continued into her adulthood:

“I didn’t have any girlfriends,” McKinney says of her childhood.

“A lot of my friends were guys, and I was called a slut by a lot of people. I was just growing these large breasts at such a young age, not really knowing what to do with them or how to wear them. So it was definitely awkward.”

McKinney adds that the treatment she received from her classmates has left her with lasting psychological scars:

“I also left school because of all of the bullying. Girls would yell at me and call me a slut,” she continued.

“I would go to parties and get beer thrown on my head — there was so much bullying.”

She added:

“It was just so awful, and that’s why now I kind of use my platform to promote anti-bullying.”

Usually, these stories conclude with a happy ending about how adults are so much less hateful and antagonistic.

Unfortunately, this is 2017, a time in which the sort of bullying usually associated with children and teens is still practiced by adults:

“I try to use what I went through to be a voice for it, because it’s still happening and getting even worse now with social media,” McKinney says, adding that she’s considered getting a breast reduction due in part to all the slut-shaming she’s endured online:

“I’ve been thinking about it. They’ve definitely gotten smaller from my diet and over time. So I can see myself getting a reduction or a lift in the future.”

But fear not:

Charlotte says she has no intention of covering up and letting the haters win any time soon.

“I’m always going to be sexy,” McKinney said.

“I’m always going to have those photo shoots, but I’m really looking for different roles that aren’t so commercial and are a bit cooler.”

We look forward to seeing it.
