From Queen Elizabeth II to the Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla Parker Bowles, and the newly minted King and Queen of Spain, King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia, royals have been keepin' it real -- busy!

In honor of the people who will never be and the jet-setting regal life you will never have, we've got a royal rap for you!

Now this is as story all about how
The royals' week got flipped-turned upside down
Making commitments all about Europetown:

In Northern Ireland,
Queen Eliz's been busy,
Throwing Hillsborough Castle into a tizzy,
Inspecting art and on the go,
For a hella chill taping of Antiques Roadshow.
The Bad B*tch's in the 'hood for a total of three days,
Then back to Buckingham and her wicked ole-lady ways.

In Madrid (that bangin' city in Spain),
King F and Queen L been illin' the first week of their reign.
Reviewing armed forces at the royal palace,
Then prolly be drinkin' sizzurp out of a double-cup chalice.

Now we're back in England, which is mad fun,
Because Duchess Camilla be killin' at Wimbledon.
Prince Charles' boo met a bunch of tennis playerz,
Then turned around and said "F the haterz!"

Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Lopez (who brought her mom along), Barbra Streisand and others shined on the red carpet before everyone entered for for a formal dinner.

Vice chairman of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, Duncan Kenworthy, addressed all of the guests before the event began, educating those who had never met the royals, how to address Will and Kate:

"They want to meet all of you. They will try and chat to all of you this evening. When you meet them, you don't have to bow and curtsy. You can call them whatever you feel: 'Your Royal Highness,' 'Sir,' 'Ma'am,' 'William' and 'Kate' – just as the mood takes you."

Everyone minded their P's & Q's, with most of the night's biggest names arriving well ahead of the 8am start time -- a rarity in a town where everyone's always late.

Mario Testino is finally dishing on some deets from the day he shot Will and Kate's royal engagement photo.

Testino added the duchess "looked fabulous" and he even helped do her own makeup.

We love Kate's down-to-earth approach to style!
