The British are coming! Or, rather, their newest heir to the throne is coming ... and soon! With Kate's speculated due date of July 13th looming (a date guessed upon by the public, given as the palace has not released such information publicly), the royal baby could be on its way any day now! Not since Princess Diana was pregnant with baby William has the entire world been so excited. While we're all eagerly waiting for the royal baby's arrival, let's recap what we know so far about the big day:
The 2012 Summer Olympics in London officially kick off tomorrow, but the United States has already taken home gold. Dating gold, that is.
With Olympics fever in the air, maybe we can take a lesson or two from other countries when it comes to dating. Match.com recently surveyed singles in the U.S., U.K., Australia, Japan, France and Canada to see just how different, or the same, dating is in these countries. Let the (love) games begin!
Happy 30th birthday, Prince William! Born on June 21, 1982, to Charles and Diana, Prince and Princess of Wales, this prince of hearts has grown from a little bundle of joy to a teen icon to an eligible-bachelor to the future king of England.
Prince William has been a busy boy during his birthday week! Ahead of turning 30 this Thursday, he's taken part in the Trooping the Colour and Order of the Garter ceremonies, hung out with a rhino, played in a charity polo match, and had some sweet moments paling around with his dog, Lupo.
Shortly after a meeting with a fortune teller, a British woman locked her children in their rooms, confiscated their lightbulbs, toys and mattresses and later made two of them work as slaves for Roma people, otherwise known as gypsies, prosecutors said.
With the exception of Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton, most people don't really expect the Queen of England to come to their wedding, let alone appear in the wedding photos. However, that is exactly what happened to commoners John and Frances Canning of Manchester, England this week, when Queen Elizabeth crashed their nuptials!
Illicit Encounters, with over 635,000 members (that’s 3% of the British public’s married population), has released the results from the biggest ever survey on infidelity, commissioned by the dating site and conducted by One Poll. I authored the poll itself, in order to garner some hard facts about cheating in the UK. Findings include:
The prejudice of gingerism is really beginning to color the English character. Major advertisers have recently be chastised for their blatantly anti-redhead spots. Underneath the freckles, luminous fair skin and red-tinged locks, there are beautiful, thinking and feeling people, England. Get to really know a ginger before you make up your mind.

This video supposedly documents the true story of Christian who, as a baby lion, was put up for sale at Harrods Department Store. A couple named John Rendall and Ace Berg pitied poor Christian when they saw him in his little cage and decided to bring him home. Eventually, Christian got too big for their flat. Rendall and Berg realized they had no choice but to reintroduce him to Africa so that he could live a proper lion life. But after a year, they missed Christian as only two bleeding heart British humans can miss a department store lion. And so they paid him a visit. This is what happened.
The country that brought loopy eyeliner, messy beehive hairdos and people named "Posh" and "Becks" to American culture have finally come up with something reasonable. Let's hope this one gets imported, eh, mate? Sex education will now be obligatory for public school students in Britain, specifically in order to address the teen pregnancy rate, says Schools Minister Jim Knight. You hear that, Bristol Palin? In 1999, Britain, which has the highest teen pregnancy rate in Western Europe, decided to cut the teen pregnancy rate in half by 2010. This is one step in its plan (more details from Tango's Tom Miller here) -- and a brilliant one at that. America, as we all know, is plagued by abstinence-only education, whose inefficacy is proven yet ignored.
I came across an absolutely befuddling story in London's Daily Mail today. "Sorry, but marriage and sex DON'T go together" is a profile of Carrie Jones, author of the forthcoming memoir Cutting Up Playgirl: A Cheerful Memoir of Sexual Disappointment. Jones is a self-described middle class mother of two who professes not to have had sex with her husband, Hal—"a good man and a great dad"—for the past four years. Moreover, she's pledged to remain celibate until her children are grown—at which point she plans to leave the marriage. Making sense of this wasn't a cinch. At first we were inclined to narrow our eyes and name Jones the villain: No sex? In four years!?
