Bill and Cathy Cambridge in Canada, Day 1

Posted on July 01, 2011

We realize we aren’t exactly exempt from this criticism ourselves, but the collective media freakout that the Cambridges’ feet are touching North American soil RIGHT AT THIS VERY MOMENT OMG I NEED TO SIT DOWN — is already getting to be a bit much. Here at the T Lo International Royal Watching Institute, we have standards of decorum and therefore will refrain from shrieking and squealing like a 5 year old girl gazing upon a collection of My Pretty Ponies for the first time.

We suspect navy is going to be her signature color for the time being. She’s been wearing it often and let’s face it, it goes well with the ring. The dress is spectacular; low-key in some respects due to the very simple silhouette and styling, and yet high-impact because it’s so striking. It’s also something of a surprise. We would have assumed she’d be wearing a suit on a day like this. The matchy neutral accessories are disappointing, but she looks fantastic anyway.

Bill looks fine, but we think he needs to get away from the 3-button jackets. Standing next to his gorgeous wife in her slinky lace dress, he looks a bit too buttoned-up.
