Coronavirus cases are spiking in North America and Europe. Most European countries are being somewhat sensible-to-very sensible about it, all while Donald Trump hosts superspreader Nazi rallies across the US. Yesterday, Boris Johnson announced some new measures to curb the corona spike in the UK – the UK won’t do another big lockdown, but they’re trying to limit nightlife and large gatherings, obviously, and they’re definitely trying to put big limitations on pubs and bars. I would assume that means private nightclubs too? Or not.
Last night, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie stepped out in London. They went partying at Annabels, a very exclusive private club popular with royals and celebrities. They made a big show of wearing masks, but… this is a horrible look. Two work-shy princesses running out to a nightclub with security on the same day the prime minister introduces new pandemic/lockdown measures? The optics are terrible. Nevermind the fact that Beatrice and Eugenie’s security also had to play with umbrellas to “shield” them from the paparazzi, because what looks worse: lazy princesses nightclubbing during a pandemic, or lazy princesses trying to hide the fact that they’re partying during a pandemic?
The Daily Mail and Hello covered this as just a snazzy “girls night out” for the poor York sisters. It’s just… asinine. Drink at home. Dance at home. Invite two friends over, take their temperatures and party at home.
