Hot Princes


By Tracee Sioux


I saw Princes William and Harry on The Today Show. Wow, they turned out HOT!

As a Femimommy who is adamantly Anti-Princess, does that mean I have to be Anti-Hot Prince? I even caught myself fantasizing that if I couldn't have them, maybe Ainsley could. Isn't that just wrong?

My last significant memory of these princes is of little boys grieving over their mother, Princess Diana. My daughter is fascinated with Diana, by the way. I've encouraged this as a way to get her interested in political dynamics and how governments work, never too early for that, I say. Ainsley was fascinated by the idea that there are real princesses, but she's very taken, as we all were, with Diana. She's not interested in Caroline or Fergie, but she can spot Diana pictures and loves to point them out. The boys were promoting a big Diana tribute concert, 10 years after her death, airing July 1, also on NBC.
Watching these boys be interviewed was intriguing. They seem to have the same characteristic Diana had and to be able to captivate the way she did. There really seemed to be very little Prince Charles in them. Well the older son and future King of England, William did seem to be more reserved and stiff than "bad boy" Harry. If I were picking a prince, it'd be Harry for me, I mean Ainsley.

Diana's genetics certainly had a positive impact on the Royal Family's looks that's for sure. These are big, sexy, tall, good-looking almost men.
Their on Dateline too, DVR that.

Around the Commonwealth, the marriage of Princess Di and Prince Charles was met with comments like "She will breed a little height into the House of Windsor."

She really was seen as nothing more than a brood mare.

Thank goodness she became so much more.

And why do little girls think being a Princess would be so much fun? Tracee

Have you seen "The Queen?" It's pretty eye opening about how aloof and cold the monarchy really is.

Jen,

I know, Ainsley and I both watched it and it was a great lesson in politics. When she asked who Tony Blair was I told her he's the Prime Minister, kind of the President. She said, "That's George Bush?" Uh no. She totally got it though.

I could see where The Queen was coming from though. The times, and what the people expected from their Royals changed drastically. Diana was responsible for it in a lot of ways. Of course she would feel lost and betrayed by it. I had empathy for Queen Elisabeth.

I also thought it was great for Ainsley to see a woman running the country. She was considering her husbands ideas, but she made the ultimate decisions and took action. I totally loved that aspect of the movie. I did a whole post about The Queen.
