The Unsolicited Celebrity Advice Column: Kate Middleton’s Fetus

Dear Kate Middleton’s Fetus,

According to Facebook, Twitter and the group text I have going with my roommates, people are very excited for your birth. And I mean very excited. Even the Obamas are thrilled for your arrival. I have to admit, the thought of a little royal baby had me ooh-ing and ahh-ing all morning as well. However, after giving it some thought, I’m wondering if you are ready for all that comes with being born into royalty. Here is some advice for navigating your soon-to-be-spectacular life.

1.  Befriend Sofia Grace and Rosie. You’ll need good friends by your side to show you the ropes of being young, British and fabulous. Who better than the ultimate diva duo?


2.  The Internet is a dark and scary place. Leafing through family photo albums is fun. Stumbling upon topless paparazzi photos of your mother sunbathing in France is not. Rule of thumb: think before you click!

3.  What happens in Vegas does not stay in Vegas. Just ask your Uncle Harry. Much like the paparazzi, Smartphones are your enemy.

4.  Never wear white to a wedding. Not because it’s tacky, but rather because unless you take after your Aunt Pippa, you will never live up to the stunner who stole the spotlight at your parents’ wedding. I know your gender has not been revealed yet, but this applies even if you are a boy.

5.  Most girls (or boys) need to kiss a lot of frogs before they find their Prince (or Princess) Charming, but you do not have this luxury. Don’t waste time with people who don’t deserve to be in your presence. Might I recommend that you set your sights on one of the Beckham children? It would bring your families’ relationship full circle, as the celebrity couple looked posh as ever at your parents’ wedding. Whether Harper grows up to look like Victoria or any of the boys grow up to look like David, you cannot go wrong with a Beckham.

I hope I haven’t overwhelmed you. I know this feels like a lot of pressure, but just remember: if you need a live-in nanny to guide you along your path to excellence, I guess I can take time away from being a starving English major to help raise you.

Unsolicitedly yours,

What makes the Gavel so BANGin’? Everyone is just the perfect amount of weird. It is one of very few environments in which I don't feel like the weirdest person in the room.
If you could go back in time and give yourself a pep talk the night before you moved into BC as a freshman, what is the most important piece of advice that you would give to your former self? I would offer myself a friendly reminder that everyone comes to college friend-less, and therefore looking for friends. Before coming to BC, I pictured myself eating every meal in solitude because I forgot that I wasn't the only person who would be entering day one without really knowing anybody. That was silly of me.
What is your favorite study spot on campus? Stuart law classrooms.
What is your go-to meal at Late Night? Mozzarella sticks.
What is the #1 most played song on your iTunes? "Gong Li" -- Red Hot Chili Peppers.
What is the best Halloween costume that you have ever worn? I was a Hershey's kiss as a toddler. Aaaaaand I rocked it.
If you could befriend the main characters from any TV show or movie, who would you choose and why? "The Office," because I have always thought that Jim and Pam would appreciate my sense of humor.
