the royals

Is there anything Sir David Attenborough can't achieve? Probs not. He's an absolute legend and undisputed king of nature, as well as possessing one of the greatest narratorial voices of ALL TIME.

He's lending his voice to Netflix for their forthcoming natural history show (seems off-brand for them?) but now he'll be back on the BBC screens with a huge new programme.

The TV show will focus on the environmental forces reshaping our world, and is entitled One Planet, Seven Worlds. We can't wait for this.

One Planet, Seven Worlds will focus on an individual continent per episode, and uses cutting-edge technology to explore the characteristics of how the animals are affected by their habitat.

He is also appearing in Green Planet, which will look at the world from the plants' point of view in the global ecosystem.

Attenborough recently spoke to Prince William about today's environment, emphasising the fact that we are less in touch with nature than ever.

"We are one coherent ecosystem- it's not just a question of beauty or interest or wonder, it's the essential ingredient. The essential part of human life is a healthy planet," he said.

He urged politicians and business leaders at the World Economic Forum in Davos to focus their attention on climate change, before it's too late; “the Garden of Eden is no more”.

Blue Planet II and Plastics Watch have both achieved massive success, so the new BBC One shows are hoping to spotlight the environment in the form of protection.

Three-quarters of a BILLION people worldwide watched Blue Planet I, which is mind-blowing. Some people see his new Netflix affiliation as a blow to the BBC, as streaming services take over.

He has worked with the BBC for over 60 years, so he most likely isn't ditching them.

The Netflix show is due out this April, while the BBC show will hopefully air in the autumn. Get yourselves and your metal straws ready, it's time to save the WORLD, people.



Princess Diana started her career off as a Montessori teacher, and since Prince George enrolled, schooling trends have inadvertently changed for the better.

The interest in Montessori nurseries has soared because of what people are calling, The Prince George Effect. More and more parents are now keen on putting their children to the same education as the future king, the Mirror reports.

The Maria Montessori Institute in London, which runs a Montessori teacher training centre as well as a number of Montessori schools, reveal that they have been bombarded with parents wanting their children to go to a Montessori nursery since it was Kate Middleton's choice of education.

Prince George first started off with a few hours session, and now is enrolled to attend the school for three to four days a week.

Louise Livingston, director of training at the Institute said, "When it was announced, our phones were ringing off the hook with people asking whether we had space in our nurseries. We're still getting lots of calls from parents. Hopefully Charlotte will go there too."

All we're wondering now is what other trends George will spark as he grows older.


Apparently the royal family are just like the rest of us! They love watching TV too, we knew it couldn’t be all grand tea parties and walks with the corgis.

Queen Elizabeth is a massive Downton Abbey fan, obviously.

According to the Telegraph the Queen “loves Downton Abbey”. However, she also “likes to spot historical mistakes” in the series.

Brian Hoey, the author of At Home with the Queen revealed that the series came up in conversation with a worker at Buckingham Palace.

“We were talking about Trooping the Colour and how the Queen always notices if anything is not quite right, such as one young officer she spotted wearing his medals in the wrong order not long ago.”

The eagle-eyed royal also takes this attention to detail to her favourite television shows too:

“She loves watching Downton Abbey and pointing out things they have got wrong, partly because she is familiar with Highclere Castle, where it is filmed. She used to stay there as a guest of the Carnarvon family.”

Amongst the royal family the Queen is not the only Downton fangirl. Kate Middleton is apparently also a “huge” fan and makes William watch it with her.

While Prince Charles is apparently said to not be as keen on Downton the Queen also has some other favourites to choose from.

In 2011 she was reported to have told Mary Byrne, a former X Factor contestant, that she has her staff record every episode.



This has to be the best "journalistic experiment" we've seen in a VERY long time.

23-year-old journalist Max Knoblauch decided to emulate the world's most adored Royal, Prince George… by copying his outfit choices every day for a week. He chronicled his experience for Mashable, and the results are pretty hilarious.

"Getting his look correct would be a trial, particularly for someone like me who is not a royal or a baby," Matt wrote. "The first challenge would be finding the clothes in a men's large. The second challenge would be not being arrested." Already we're hooked.

First up was the two-toned blue outfit that the toddler wore back in May to meet his little sister, Princess Charlotte, for the first time. Shorts, sweater, knee socks and all.

Does he have the "George Factor" yet?

Another highlight has to be the sailboat overalls that George so beautifully modelled during his trip to New Zealand with Kate and William last year. 

And of course, who can forget the white-and-red combo the young Royal sported when he absolutely stole the show at Charlotte's christening?

What a hero.



For the first time since he touched down in Namibia, the 30-year old British royal has been sighted as he works to improve conservation efforts in the country.

He is also sporting a new look, and we’re kind of loving it.

In the 6 weeks since he’s been away the famous redhead, who is fifth-in-line for the throne has started to rock a full beard.

The normally clean shaved Harry seems to have ditched the razor, and no one is complaining about his new style.

In late June, Prince Harry headed off on a three month long trip after completing 10 years of service with the British military.

While in Africa he has been shadowing conservations and veterinarians such as Dr. Pete Morkel as they attempt to deal with the threats against endangered species.

It looks like Harry is certainly not afraid to get up close and personal with some of the animals he’s been working to help protect.

On his recent trip to Khula Care for Wild, a rhino conservation site in South Africa, Harry joined in a round of feeding and met some of the 20 rhinos at the site. Including baby rhino Warren, cute.

Both Harry and his brother William consider wildlife conservation to be a very important cause. Before he took off on his visit, Harry said he thought the opportunity was going to be “amazing”.

The royal is also eager to do his part to change the way locals think about their native wildlife:

"Whether it’s darting a lion or going into a community to see how they are changing the way they are working, and for the local culture to accept that an elephant means more to them money-wise alive than shooting it." 



Well this made us do a double-take.

Prince William was just minding his own business completing his first air ambulance mission when the internet suddenly noticed his co-pilot looked very familiar.

Indeed, the glamorous doctor bears a striking resemblance to none other than the Duchess of Cambridge.

The pair were on hand to help a man in his 50s who had suffered a heart attack and needed to be flown to the closest hospital.

The Duchess of Cambridge look alike is Gemma Mullen, and even her hair is similar to Kate Middleton’s famous brunette mane.

A group of nurses nearby couldn’t believe the scene as they gathered around to see the royal rescue.

One of those gathered to snap some quick photos told the Daily Mail:

“Word got around the hospital pretty quickly that he had flown in and some nurses who were on a break rushed out to see if they could see him.”

According to those gathered around the scene, Prince William remained completely professional despite the people gathered around taking videos of the royal and his co-pilot.

The 33-year old Prince William is apparently quite popular with his new colleagues with a spokeswoman for the East Anglian Air Ambulance saying he is “likeable” and “valued” by his crew.

We imagine the swooning nurses probably got him a raised eyebrow or two. We just wonder what Kate would have to say about all this?



The world was captivated when a video showing a naked man climbing and then falling out of a window at Buckingham Palace was found on YouTube.

The video has now gained over one million view on YouTube and has just today been revealed as part of a TV show…damn! So there was no scandalous hanky panky going on in the Palace after all.

The Royals is an upcoming new drama by E! starring Elizabeth Hurley and William Moseley who star as fictional members of the royal family.

The video’s extended footage has been released on D-Throned, the tabloid that covers all of the action of the scandalous royals on the new show.

The show is written by One Tree Hill creator Mark Schwan and will air on March 15th
