When you think royal wedding entertainment, you think (ok, we think) of choirs of vicars, crappy Sting music involving lutes, or maybe if you want to get crazy, Susan Boyle. You probably don’t think Snoop Dogg. But E! Online reports that lovable ginger scamp Prince Harry wants to hire Snoop to perform for his brother Prince William‘s engagement party.
Snoop has not yet been invited but his people say he’s “really interested” in performing for the future king and queen. Apparently Harry, a hip-hop fan, has already hired British MC Tinie Tempah to play at the party and he wants to meet Snoop to negotiate. We totally understand that the princes are young and cool and hip, but this still feels a bit weird. To be fair, it would be weird for Snoop to perform at any party where parents and grandparents attend, regardless of royal pedigree. We really hope this happens, just so we can see the pictures of Snoop meeting the queen.
We so called it! Well, so did the whole of the United Kingdom, but who cares! Prince William and Kate Middleton are engaged. It was just a week ago that bookies were betting on the odds on whether Will and Kate were going to make it official, so someone’s making a killing on this one. Looks like Daniella Issa Helayel picked the right time to start designing wedding gowns because she’s been Kate’s go-to custom designer for a while now.
The couple have been quite cheeky about the whole engagement affair. Buckingham Palace officials have said that William popped the question a whole month ago, while they were on vacation in Kenya. Okay, so they’ve had time to prepare themselves for the frenzy that awaits, which is probably going to be of the Diana-scale. Now that the news is out, Prince Charles‘ rep has stated that the proud Dad is “delighted to announce the engagement of Prince William to Miss Catherine Middleton” and they apparently going to get married in London either in the spring or summer of next year.
So, what do we have to do to score an invite? Anybody? Does Harry need a date?

If reports are true, then it means that one very eligible prince is off the market. Apparently, England collectively believes that Prince William and Kate Middleton are this close to making it official, so much so that bookies are betting on it. Anytime between December and February is what’s being bandied about.
Considering they’ve been together on and off since the Prince was in college, it’s about bloody time! Post attending William’s friend, Harry Meade’s wedding together, one of Kate’s pals said, “Kate knows she she’s going to need conservative yet attractive outfits once they are engaged and she’s started collecting a very enviable wardrobe.” That comes from the fact that Kate’s going the custom outfit route (pictured above) with designer Daniella Issa Helayel, who conveniently, just started designing wedding gowns too. How badass would it be if William popped the question by turning up at Kate’s house in a helicopter (again).
Right. We’re just going to go ahead and say it… as long as Prince Harry‘s still single, we’re going to be just fine. No offense to William, but have you seen how hot the ginge-brotha has got lately? A girl can dream, ok?

Now that Prince Harry‘s single after splitting with fiery Chelsy Davy, lots of posh identikit blonde totty is lining up to be his new lady. (We can’t see the appeal of being married into the most dysfunctional family known to mankind and having your every action scrutinized by the tabloids, but each to their own.) And now, just like Britney Spears claimed to fancy Prince William years ago (before he went bald and er, so did she), preposterous pop star Lady Gaga reckons she wants a piece of Harry.
“I spotted him last year in a club and couldn’t take my eyes off him. British men are cool. I especially love the accent and Prince Harry sounds so posh,” she burbles.
Perhaps this isn’t such an odd match after all. They’re both famous, have terrible taste in clothes and are prone to saying very stupid things. [Photos: Getty, FilmMagic]
The world’s media has always focused on the deathly dull romance between balding British heir Prince William and Kate Middleton, but we at Scandalist always preferred to give that charisma-free pairing a wide berth and instead focus our royal watch on Prince Harry and his glam African girlfriend Chelsy Davy instead. So we’re a little gutted to report that they have split, with the feisty Chelsy deciding the stifling life of a royal consort wasn’t for her. (Hey, what sane person would want it?)
“She has simply had enough. They have been going through what she calls a ‘rough patch’ and she didn’t see the point in going on,” reported a friend to the News of the World, who claim the blonde bombshell called it off in a series of “heartbreak phone calls”.
During their five-year relationship, Chelsy has put up with seen Harry through a series of tabloid-troubling experiences, including his dressing up in a Nazi uniform for a fancy-dress party, flirting it up with a series of other girls in nightclubs, and recently being caught out using a racist term on video. Personally, we think she’s made an astute decision. We only hope our optimism isn’t burst by a tacky “Harry Was Crap In Bed” revelation. We don’t think our stomachs could take it. [Photo: AFP]
Olga Kurylenko, 28, and Gemma Arterton, 22, aren’t household names yet, but you’ll be seeing a lot more of them when the new James Bond flick Quantum of Solace hits theaters Nov. 14. A sequel to the excellent Casino Royale, the movie had its premiere opening last week in London – and both girls apparently looked so come-hither that Princes William and Harry couldn’t help but use their Royal Charm to chat them up.
In Quantum, Olga plays Daniel Craig‘s seductive sidekick Camille, who is — surprise! — ravaged by him in a graphic sex scene (warning: clip NSFW). According to early reviews, the Ukranian-born model-turned-actress is one of the highlights of the movie. Gemma, an English actress who will star opposite Jake Gyllenhaal in the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, plays a British operative named Miss Fields. We’re guessing she also jumps into the sack with 007. Don’t they all?
How do Olga and Gemma stack up against previous Bond girls like Halle Berry, Eva Green and Jane Seymour? Check the pics and decide for yourself. [Photo: Splash News Online]

Well, almost. It was just a normal weeknight at London’s latest royal hangout, posh club Whiskey Mist, and Princes William and Harry were getting absolutely trashed performing their royal duties by helping stop the credit crunch. Probably. Anyhow, Christina Aguilera was also there with invisible husband Jordan Bratman, and in a snippet which says more about the cult of celebrity versus royalty than anything, Wills decided to introduce himself.
“But in the midst of all the fun, lonely Wills suddenly put down his glass and said: ‘Excuse me, ladies, I’m just going to say hi to Christina.’ We watched him puff out his chest and stride across the packed bar to the corner where the American singer was sitting with her hubby, Jordan Bratman. A red-faced William first had to convince her minder he was the real deal. We heard him whisper: ‘Er, hi. I’m Prince William, I just wanted to say hello.’ After a bit of wrangling, Christina, 27, gave the nod and Wills was in,” reports The Mirror.
Cringe! We are so embarrassed for the poor balding royal having to beg Christina to let him in her inner sanctum. But the night wasn’t over yet – Paris Hilton arrived and in her own inimitable style, waltzed up to the princes, announcing, “Don’t you love the Princes? They are so hot. I just had to say hi.” Another report has Paris doing anything to get the attention of Wills. “She started doing this really stupid dance, basically shaking her ass in front of Prince William,” says the London Paper.
We don’t know about you, but these A-listers at one of London’s most exclusive clubs sound like a bunch of 12-year-olds at a school disco. We just hope Harry’s gf Chelsy Davy (who we’ve got a soft spot for, not sure why) didn’t prostrate herself in front of Paris either. She could eat her for lunch.

Prince William‘s girlfriend donned a green sequined top and yellow hot pants and rolled her way to raising $200,000 for a children’s hospital ward. Kate hosted a day-glo disco with Virgin Airlines tycoon Richard Branson’s daughter Holly to raise money for Tom’s Ward at the Children’s Hospital in Oxford, England, which was set up in memory of her and Prince William’s pal Sam Waley-Cohen’s brother Thomas who died of cancer four years ago.
