How much can one duchess take?
Blog Guy, you wrote about Prince William and Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, watching a bagpiper a few days ago during their visit to Canada.
Very true, and nobody has studied the effects of prolonged bagpipe exposure on normal people. In this photo above, taken yesterday, it appears Catherine is starting to crack.
Remember, as a commoner, she hasn’t built up a bagpipe immunity like some of the royals have.
It seems like a very cruel punishment, I must say.
It appears they do try to protect themselves when they can. Here you can see William and Catherine when they think no one is watching, covering their ears and making noises to drown out the bagpipes, but it may not be enough to…
Wait a minute, Blog Guy. According to the captions, they’re covering their ears from the engine blast of a helicopter. It’s got nothing to do with bagpipes.
Don’t be so naive. Don’t you understand the pro-bagpipe lobby puts their own spin on all of our photo captions before we run them? Sorry, I’ve said too much already.
