Welcome to the royal world baby.
It is no secret that I am one of the biggest Kate Middleton fans you will ever come across. There are worse people to be obsessed with right?
And, of course, I have dragged my colleagues into my obsession with her upcoming second born. I’ve made them all bet on the gender and the baby’s first name (because they’re royal, they will have many names).
What’s at stake? Hot chips.
Now, seeing as though I am besties with Kate (she is yet to know we are so close), I know the baby’s gender and name. So I have an unfair advantage.
Baby girl. Alice.
But today, I feel like the hot chips have been robbed from me with the latest news of the scandal surrounding the name Alice.
Now, I'm about to give you a bit of a history lesson. Don't worry it will be short...
The Daily Telegraph says that King Edward VII had a mistress called Alice Keppel (a commoner).
Camilla, Prince Charles' current wife, is the great-granddaughter of Alice Keppel. And obviously, Prince Charles is related to King Edward VII.
Now that seems harmless enough, right? WRONG.
You see, while Prince Charles was married to Princess Diana, Camilla approached Charles with the alleged line:
"My great grandmother and your great-great grandfather were lovers. So how about it?"
