Now that Duchess Kate has competition in the race for Miss Kensington Palace, she can’t waste even her time with a bun in the oven to out-shine that Yankee Doodle. At least, that’s what I’m telling myself is the reason she decided to wear the hat she stole off a drag queen in Moscow to greet the plebes, er, people of Norway.
Kate and Prince William greeted Queen Sonja and Princess Ingrid under an inflated rainbow that looks like something the Norwegians found on eBay after it had been discarded from the set of a 1997 Gap commercial. Queen S (and just about anyone else who turned out to greet the Brit duo) is totally thinking, “Bish, it ain’t that cold.” If anything, she should have passed that thing over to her husband, as his crown looks like it needs it more warmth than her head. People says the visit is part of a tour of Scandinavia that included lunch at the royal palace. Too bad Meghan Markle wasn’t around, because as an American, she would’ve served her country proud by asking the Norwegians if any of them know Rose Nylund. I definitely would have asked that.
As for the rainbow park, it’s actually known as the Princess Ingrid Alexandra Sculpture Park and opened last year in honor of the 25th year of King Harald’s reign. The sculptures are designed by and for children, which I hope Kate knew before she gave that dazed look of, “Is this Norway or is this Chuck E. Cheese?”
