Are you the kind of person who reads People Magazine to find out what the British royal family is up to? Catherine admits to such an interest, and quickly devoured The Royal We, a new book by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan of the blog Go Fug Yourself, which also has its fair share of royal-watching content, plus recaps of Wolf Hall, which Catherine watches for a look at royal life before there were paparazzi and the worst a royal had to worry about was ... well, losing her head, so maybe things were worse. Since Terri is not a royal-watcher, she had trouble coming up with some royal-themed entertainment to contribute to this week's theme, and made do with the royalty-adjacent 2003 film What a Girl Wants. She spoils the (happy) ending without ever really explaining what the movie's about, but if you're not familiar with it, you can learn everything you need to know from the trailer, including the fact that there is quite a lot of Colin Firth being adorable and/or soulful.

My favorite part about that trailer is that there's an AOL Keyword at the end!
