Is it just grumpy old me? This morning I was wading through the usual slurry on the Irish news websites and came across the following howler on the RTÉ website about Prince William, he of the British royals with the crown thing.
It’s in a report headlined “Stars turn out for Princess Eugenie’s wedding to Jack Brooksbank in Windsor”:
The Duchess of Cambridge arrived with Prince William wearing a dress by Alexander McQueen and a Philip Treacy hat.
Or maybe it’s not a clanger. So the prince is into Alexander McQueen frocks and Philip Treacy hats? Fair play, I am broadminded, each to their own and all that. Yet I couldn’t find any pix of him in that dress. Guess he must have looked only gorgeous.
Intrepid journos across the world keep unearthing outfits that “Duchess Kate” recycles via her husband. It’s so refreshing in these times of environmental meltdown to see these royals thinking green, encouraging cross-dressing while finding clever new ways not to be a burden on the tax-payers. For example, earlier this week William wore one of Kate’s A-line dresses designed by Emilia Wickstead. See the pic above. It must be true – it’s in USA Today.
Or how about this piece of piffle on the airwaves, from RTÉ Radio 1 just over a month ago:
Twenty years after claiming to be the son of God, I talk to David Icke…
Yes, it’s Horse’s Mouth time. The highest paid broadcaster in Ireland really does believe he’s the son of God. Can’t imagine that Ryan Tubridy in a Alexander McQueen frock though. He always struck me as more the Laura Ashley type. Or something more, well, more Hyacinth Bucket.
