‘Gossip with Celebitchy’ podcast #117: Cambridges are giving Charles & Diana vibes

Introduction: Minutes 0 to 10
I saw the Oscar nominated live action shorts and want Riz Ahmed’s movie The Long Goodbye to win. We both saw Nightmare Alley and liked it but thought it was too long. Chandra saw House of Gucci and thought there were too many side plots but that Gaga and Adam Driver were good in their roles. She thought King Richard was very good. You can listen below!

Royals: Minutes 10 to 24:30
On February 24th, the day that Russia invaded Ukraine, Harry and Meghan were the first royals to issue a statement about it. Of course they were criticized for it widely in the British press. The Cambridges decided that February 24th was the right day to confirm their upcoming tour of Belize, Jamaica and The Bahamas. Two days later the Cambridges issued a statement supporting Ukraine. Prince Charles spoke about Ukraine on March 1st in a speech. Charles and Camilla also donated personally to charities for Ukrainian refugees.

Last Saturday Harry and Meghan were given the President’s Award at the NAACP Awards for their charity work. They also announced a new award, the NAACP-Archewell Digital Civil Rights Award, which was given to Dr. Safiya Omuja Noble, who wrote Algorithms of Oppression. Their speech was so good and impressive.

This week there was also the Six Nations rugby match, which Kate and William attended with George. We wonder why they didn’t bring Charlotte too. Kate wore a black and white houndstooth jacket, black turtleneck and black pants, which was exactly the look her mother-in-law, Princess Diana, wore to the same event in 1993.

Kate and William also went to Wales for St. David’s day. It was a nice visit and they met with people and visited farms and local businesses. They should be doing more of those type of visits. Will said that Kate always has cold hands. I play a segment from Zoom where we talked about the royals.

We’re also seeing Kate being pushed out more as a senior royal with the typical embiggening pieces and the news that she’s going to be the most prominent female royal and will do more solo events. It’s what we always hear about her and yet we get the same superficial appearances and statements from her.

When we off from the podcast last week Kate did a quick tour of Copenhagen where she was late for events and had frequent wardrobe changes. This was obviously meant for a British audience. I wondered why she didn’t give a little report about that, but she said she would in the future.

Dan Wootton’s story about Kate seems to be telegraphing a split and makes many comparisons to Charles and Diana. As for their upcoming move, Chandra thinks Kate will move to the country while William will stay in London.

SAG Awards: Minutes 24:30 to 31
CODA is a real contender and it looks like Power of The Dog is no longer a sure win for Best Picture. Will Smith and Ariana DeBose seems like shoe-ins for their respective categories. I play a segment from Zoom where we talked about the fashion at the SAGs.

My favorite look was on Kerry Washington. It reminded Chandra of Nicole Kidman’s Dior Oscar gown.

We liked Lady Gaga’s Armani gown but her hair looked bad.

Chandra loved Vanessa Hudgens’ Versace gown.

Only Cate Blanchett could pull off her Armani.

We loved Jessica Chastain’s Dior suit.

And Elle Fanning in Gucci.

I liked Helen Mirren’s look and thought she looked comfortable.

My comment of the week is from CC on the post where Lady Gaga claimed flies were following her on set.

    It kinda sounds like Will and Kate could have a good mutually agreeable business partnership, which is nothing like Charles and Diana. If Kate gets to move to the country near her family and keep her status and titles, she’s sort of getting everything she wants, right?

    • Noli says:

      They could have a good business partnership, if William is more discrete than his father was at that time

      • bettyrose says:

        While I do think any spouse would feel humiliated by public cheating, it’s still very different. Kate might be okay with him cheating if he’s doing it discretely, whereas Diana hadn’t signed onto that kind of marriage.

    • Isabella says:

      Kate looks miserable. He looks mad all the time. I don’t think this is working.

  2. jferber says:

    I don’t see how William is being discreet when I, in Westchester, New York, U.S.A., know about his frequent dalliances and the name of one or two mistresses. How is that discreet?

    I’m an OG Cosmetologist in California 🇺🇸 I cut hair in the psychiatric unit for years and learned about survival when you just don’t understand what’s going on. Everyone was in their own world and did everything possible to keep their world feeling safe. Well the BRF and the soul of the uk, their Tabloids, are worse. When you add inbreeding and white privilege along with great wealth…the inmates have taken over the institution.
    The only thing that can make that trash hole civilized is when..not if…the monarchy falls onto its rotten core. They need to be imprisoned, for reals, not like Epstein. Rant over 🔥😇😂
