Ellie Goulding wore this to something called “Fayre of St James Christmas Carol Concert” at St James’ Church in London — the Brits DO love a Christmas shenanigan, and I look forward to St. James himself appearing to me at some point tonight to scold me for calling this a “shenanigan,” much like the opening of my own A Christmas Carol in which I learn not to be so glib and irreligious all the time. (All kidding aside, this looks like a lovely event and I laughed when I read on the website that they would be screening the World Cup match before the concert.) And while I don’t know if I think she looks festive, I do think she looks good. A bit witchy, very winter-y. Someone I’d go to for a mysterious tincture. But RICH! What a delicious combo.

‘Not so much a residence as a tradition’: the evolution of St James’s Palace from leper hospital to royal court
The eyes of the world were on St James’s Palace on 10 September 2022 when David White, Garter King of Arms, read the Accession Proclamation formally announcing the succession of King Charles III following the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II. If royal palace expert Simon Thurley had been watching or listening, he might well have been frustrated to hear the BBC commentators say repeatedly that ‘very little is known about the history of the palace’. In fact, Simon and his two co-authors, Rufus Bird and Michael Turner, had completed a new history of the palace based on primary sources and a study of the surviving building fabric, some three years previously.
A friendship between Newcastle United and Athletic Bilbao is growing ever-stronger following the pair’s meeting in pre-season. Almost 30 years ago, the Magpies played the La Liga side in the UEFA Cup over two legs, and although Bilbao progressed on away goals, a special relationship had emerged. Indeed, that was cemented in 2001 when Newcastle legend Rob Lee selected the Basque club as the opposition for his testimonial.
