  • Since Prince George turned 8, Kate Middleton and Prince William have been considering whether to send him to boarding school or let him stay at Thomas’s Battersea. And this week, we learned that the Cambridges would only send George to boarding school if he wanted to go to one. “Kate and William are open to sending George to boarding school in the future and have already checked out a few, but they feel 8 is a little young and want to wait until he’s slightly older,” a source revealed.
  • Former royal chef Darren McGrady is setting the record straight about Her Majesty’s drinking habits. After one of his interviews got misconstrued to say that the queen has four drinks a day, he clarified his statements and said, “She’d be pickled if she drank that much. All I said was she likes a gin and Dubonnet. That’s her favorite drink.”
  • Earlier this week, it was revealed that Queen Elizabeth used Kate Middleton’s passion for photography to make the Duchess of Cambridge feel welcomed into the royal family during her first few visits to their summer estate. Turns out, Middleton paid a handful of visits to Her Majesty’s Scottish home, Balmoral, before marrying Prince William. And in order to calm her nerves and make her feel at home, the queen allowed the duchess to break one very important rule: no picture taking.
