Why, Despite Having Four Children, We’ve Never Seen a Picture of The Queen Pregnant

Published

on

In other words, there are no images of a royal cuddling a growing baby as there are of Princess Diana, Kate Middleton, and Meghan Markle. The Queen has never been photographed while she was pregnant.

So why are there no pictures of a Queen Elizabeth II who is quite pregnant?

Well, the manners used in the past to handle royal pregnancies have a lot to do with it.

It has been customary for there to be a big announcement of a royal pregnancy, followed by months of photos of the expecting royal attending public events, culminating in a hospital step shot that has taken on a life of its own.

The longest-reigning monarch of Britain, though, didn’t experience it.

Her pregnancies were never made public. A statement from Buckingham Palace declared, “Her Royal Highness Princess Elizabeth will undertake no public engagements after the end of June,” in 1948 when the Queen became pregnant with Prince Charles.

It’s not exactly being yelled at from the rooftops.

The palace did not just conceal the Queen’s pregnancies; there were also no public images of the newborn children taken right after birth.

The Queen gave birth at Buckingham Palace, and the media was not allowed to photograph her newborns.

Princess Diana was the first to depart from the custom of giving birth at the palace when she delivered Prince William in a hospital in 1982.

Diana reportedly stated that the constant press attention was the reason she chose the hospital rather than the palace: “I couldn’t tolerate the press pressure any longer, it was becoming terrible. It was as if everybody was monitoring me every day for me.”

Charles’ first official photograph was taken during his Christening in December 1948, many months after his birth.

The fact that there were so few photos of the Queen looking obviously pregnant startled many people, with one commenter lamenting, “The Queen had four children yet I’ve never seen any photos of her looking obviously pregnant! I did some reading and at the time it was “improper” to display her stomach!

She would pretend she’s not taking on any royal duties for a while, then resurface with a baby! She never even announced her pregnancy!

Another person added: “Apparently being pregnant was forbidden, so she would go into hiding.”

What’s your speculation?

New American Pie Movie in Progress

Published

on

According to the writer Sujata Day, the upcoming American Pie movie will present “a fresh take” on the long-running filthy comic series. The Hollywood Reporter claims that Day’s initial idea served as the inspiration for this next entry in the American Pie series.

Something Appropriate

According to star Jason Biggs, the famed webcam sequence from the original American Pie “wouldn’t be made now and it couldn’t get made now. It would be unacceptable what that represents.” A modern remake of the film would almost surely have taken a different stance on what a sex comedy can be in the movie world.

A Huge Possibility

The upcoming American Pie movie does not currently have a director, but Day made her directorial debut in 2020 with Definition Please, a comedy-drama about a former spelling bee champion that won prizes at the San Francisco CAAM Fest and the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival, among other events. Her first significant directing role may be on a new American Pie.

The main series most recently came to an end in 2012 with American Reunion. And with the gap of years that comes with the upcoming movie, the plot should keep up with the times, and hopefully deliver a great movie for the ages!

A Long Awaited Movie Finally Comes the Way of “Community”

Published

on

Community has six seasons under its belt and, as the prophecy predicted, will soon have its long-awaited motion picture. A movie based on Dan Harmon’s enduring comedy has finally been commissioned by Peacock.

A Few More Details

The fact that practically the whole original cast will return is perhaps even more thrilling. Peacock has non-competitive rights to broadcast Community Season Six in addition to the movie.

A Bit of a Hint

Joel McHale, who plays Joel on the television show Community, recently hinted in a Tweet that the movie, which has been touted ever since the program ended in 2015, would be coming soon. The phrase “Six seasons and a movie,” which frequently appears on the show and, consequently, among its ardent following, is referenced in the Tweet.

Cardi B Opens Up About Failed Collaboration with Call of Duty

Published

on

It may sound a little strange, but Cardi B should be creating some buzz for Call of Duty. Back in July, the rapper partnered with Activision. She goes on to tell us more about how the partnership eventually fell apart after that.

The Reason

You might recall that Cardi B debuted her partnership with Activision by donning a Simon “Ghost” Riley necklace in the music video for “Hot S**t.” Since then, you probably haven’t seen Cardi B advertising Call of Duty because she allegedly lost her cooperation deal as a result of prior “stupid decisions.”

A Hot Topic

Cardi B admitted guilt to assault-related charges earlier this month, according to Comic Book. They related to an altercation that occurred in a New York strip club in 2018. Cardi B took a plea agreement that included 15 days of community service, paying court costs for the other women involved, and avoiding prison time.

Make sure you check out what she said in this Twitter post!
