Prince Harry And Meghan Visit Mandela Exhibit In London; Meghan’s Father Speaks

(AP Photo/Matt Dunham)

LONDON (AP) — Prince Harry and his wife Meghan have visited an exhibition in London charting the life of Nelson Mandela.

Peter Hain, a former anti-apartheid campaigner and chair of the Nelson Mandela Centenary Exhibition, said it was “very fitting” for the royal couple to visit because Harry does charitable work in southern Africa, and Meghan has said that Mandela is one of her heroes.

 

 

Harry has visited sites associated with Mandela, including his Robben Island prison cell, and a former Mandela aide has said that Queen Elizabeth II enjoyed a solid friendship with the South African leader.

Meghan chose a sleeveless beige trench coat-inspired dress by Canadian brand Nonie for the occasion.

The exhibition, curated by the Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg, is opening Tuesday at London’s Southbank Center.

Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle has been making news of his own lately. He told The Sun in Britain that he hadn’t talked to his daughter since the wedding but feels like she is struggling in her new role. (Royal watchers have remarked on her obvious weight loss since the ceremony.)

My thing about my daughter right now is that I think she is terrified. I see it in her eyes, I see it in her face and I see it in her smile,” he said. “I’ve seen her smile for years. I know her smile. I don’t like the one I’m seeing now. This one isn’t even a stage smile — this is a pained smile.”

Markle said his daughter is no longer picking up the number he had for her and he “doesn’t have her address.” But doesn’t everyone know where she lives?

Markle, who still has not visited Britain, missed his daughter’s wedding with a heart ailment.

Just like us, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are big fans of one of the most popular fragrance brands.

We already know that both Meghan and Harry wore a unisex fragrance created by Floris on their big day, but they went with a different perfume house to scent the venue.

The couple chose French perfumer Diptyque to scent their wedding and, although we don’t know the exact fragrance, its reported the couple chose a selection of fresh and floral scents.

A spokesperson for the brand has said, ‘We would like to express our sincere congratulations to Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on their wedding.

‘We were delighted to help scent their special day.’

The Sussexes aren’t the only Duke and Duchess who love a luxury candle, though; Kate Middleton and Prince William reportedly chose for Jo Malone candles to scent Westminster Abbey for their wedding back in 2011.

Kate’s fragrance of choice is reportedly the brand’s ever-popular Orange Blossom; an excellent choice, we might add.

It just goes to show that nobody is immune from a scented candle addiction…

Five Prominent But Lesser-Known Black Dignitaries At Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Royal Wedding

The Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and now, Meghan Markle, Dutchess of Sussex, had the world’s attention over the weekend. For about 15 minutes, The Most Reverend Michael Bruce Curry’s impassioned speech on love captivated hearts, too. Even more talked about were some of the black celebrities in attendance, such as Oprah Winfrey, Idris Elba, and Serena Williams.

Also in attendance were some high-ranking black notables who work in different sectors of British and American societies:  

Rose Hudson-Wilkin

For years, Hudson-Wilkin had been tipped to be in the first cohort of women to become bishops in the Church of England. Since 2014, the 64-year-old priest has been Priest-in-Charge of St Mary-at-Hill, City of London. She also holds the roles of Chaplain to the Speaker of the House of Commons, priest vicar at Westminster Abbey, and the first black female chaplain to the queen. She was previously vicar of Holy Trinity Church, Dalston and All Saints Church in Haggerston.


Colleen Harris

Harris held a senior communications position in the Prime Minister’s Office before being appointed Press Secretary to the Prince of Wales. She handled the media for the prince during some of the most turbulent years, and also media-managed the emergence of Princes William and Harry into the public eye. Her career has included senior posts in the Deputy Prime Minister’s Office and the Cabinet Office, as well as in non-departmental public bodies. She has worked in Britain and abroad as a consultant with private companies, non-profit organizations and U.N agencies, including the World Health Organization.

Bishop Michael Curry

Michael Curry made history in 2015 after his installation as the Episcopal Church’s presiding bishop over its 1.8 million members—becoming the denomination’s first African American spiritual leader. Having been on the job for less than a year, Curry took a public stance supporting gay marriage, a move that earned the Episcopal Church a three-year sanction by the Anglican Communion. Anglican leaders then stripped the Episcopal Church of any role in deciding doctrine or determining how the Anglican Communion operates for three years. Curry was born in 1953 in Chicago to Dorothy Curry and Rev. Kenneth Curry, who was a Baptist before becoming an Episcopalian priest. He said his father became part of the church after he and his mother had been allowed to drink from the same chalice being passed among white parishioners in racially segregated Ohio. Bishop Curry became the talk of social media with his heartfelt sermon at the royal wedding. 



Sheku Kanneh-Mason

Along with an orchestra made up of instrumentalists from the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, the English Chamber Orchestra and the Philharmonia Orchestra, Sheku Kanneh-Mason played three songs during the couple’s Signing of the Register. At just 19, Kanneh-Mason is the first black cellist or musician to ever win BBC’s Young Musician of the Year award in its 38-year history. He reached the semi-finals of Britain’s Got Talent in 2015, and he was a member of the Chineke! Orchestra, the first professional orchestra in Europe that is made up of mainly musicians of color. His sister Isata, and brother Braimah are also members.  


Tessy Ojo

Tessy Ojo is the Chief Executive Officer of the Diana Awards, the only charity that bears the name of the late Princess Diana of Wales. Established in 1999 to recognize young people for extraordinary work in their local communities, the charity benefits from the support of The Royal Highness, Prince William and Prince Harry, as well as the UK Prime Minister. Ojo is a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, a member of the Institute of Directors. She was awarded The Precious Award, Inspiring Leader in 2015, Women in Business Rising Star, and Excellence Award from Eva Longoria’s Global Gift Foundation.

Meghan Markle has the sweetest nickname for Prince Harry

This is too much.

REX

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot last weekend at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, in quite possibly the most star-studded ceremony in history.

But it wasn’t the royal wedding guests or Elton John’s surprise mini concert that got everyone talking. Instead it was Meghan Markle’s speech.

Yes Meghan broke royal protocol on the big day, not only walking herself down the aisle after her father pulled out, but also delivering a speech at the reception.

That’s right. It was a watershed moment at the Queen’s luncheon reception, when guests who were expecting speeches from Prince Harry, Prince William and Prince Charles, were treated to a few words from the bride.

According to reports, she nailed it, being the first to stand up and speak at the third part of the wedding day, delivering an affectionate speech to her husband and thanking the royal family for looking after her and being so welcoming.

It was one particular slip of the tongue however that really made viral news, as Meghan reportedly referred to the 33-year-old as ‘My Prince’ in her wedding toast.

‘This was a real breach of tradition. Usually the bride doesn’t talk. It is, of course, the father of the bride, but seeing there was no Thomas Markle, Meghan decided that she would speak,’ royal expert Katie Nicholls told Entertainment Tonight. ‘When it came to her new husband, Harry, she said, “I finally found my prince.”’

She continued: ‘It was very romantic and very sweet.’

Congratulations again to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Inside Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan’s Evening Wedding Reception

Newlyweds Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan partied into the early hours of the morning at their evening wedding reception at Frogmore House following their Saturday, May 19, wedding at Windsor Castle in England.

The intimate celebration for 200 of the couple’s closest friends and family kicked off at 7 p.m. and was hosted by the groom’s father, Prince Charles. It followed a more sedate lunchtime reception held by the queen, where Elton John performed.

Guests let their hair down at the evening shindig, with the Telegraph reporting that the thump of loud music could be heard over the grounds of Windsor Castle, and at 11 p.m. guests were treated to a fireworks display that lit up the sky.

Harry, 33, and Meghan, 36, traveled to Frogmore House in an E-Type Jaguar modified with an electric engine as the bride wore her second dress of the day — a white halterneck Stella McCartney gown accessorized with a huge aquamarine ring that belonged to Harry’s late mother, Princess Diana. Harry looked dashing in a black tuxedo.

Guests included Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie and their father, Prince Andrew, according to the Telegraph, which reported that the couple chose Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)” as the song for their first dance.

The newly minted duchess’ close friend Jessica Mulroney was also in attendance and the Daily Mail reported that George and Amal Clooney, as well as Priyanka Chopra and Serena Williams, were among the A-list guests.

The party reportedly featured house music from a DJ who also played at Pippa Middleton‘s wedding as well as a Drinks of the World-themed bar that included a ginger and rum cocktail, in a tribute to the groom’s red hair. It was named “When Harry Met Meghan.”

The Mail reports that the three-course sit-down dinner was organic, at the request of Prince Charles, and the guests were entertained by funny speeches from best man Prince William as well as Harry’s friends Tom Inskip and Tom Van Straubenzee. Meghan was also expected to give a speech at the reception.

Why Harry and Meghan’s Wedding Was a Meaningful Step Forward for the Monarchy

The wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle — or, if you prefer, of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex — was a collision between the United Kingdom and the United States, a geopolitical tango in which a particular sort of American ethos definitively took the lead. For those who’ve surmised that Meghan may meaningfully change the public face of Britain’s monarchy, Saturday’s wedding seemed to provide ample evidence. For the many millions watching worldwide, it bore the imprints of a guiding sensibility that was passionate, globally engaged and — relative to the rest of the royals — downright breezy.

This became clear in the moments before Meghan even entered the chapel. Prince Harry, evidently a nervous groom, transmitted anxiety through the screen. Other members of the royal family seemed even less at ease, seemingly because of an odd paradox: Their pleasant remove from contemporary digital life has made them vastly less comfortable on camera than most of their subjects. Her motorcade may have arrived with down-to-the-minute British punctuality, but Meghan strode out with an un-royal sort of confidence. In a simple and clean dress and one bit of ornate finery — a tiara whose encrusted jewels set off her Drybar-chic messy bun — she held a pose outside the chapel for a long moment as her train was being arranged, and used the time to wave to members of the assembled crowd with a mood less of noblesse oblige than of amiable openness.

Perhaps it’s her training as an actress that made her seem vastly more comfortable than anyone else in the room, at least at first. With a slightly arch smile that never faded, Meghan seemed better suited to be the center of attention than the family whose members are born to be seen. In her company, Harry, too, seemed to relax; the game of psychoanalyzing royals based solely on body language and snippets of attempted lip-reading got vastly more fun.

As things got underway, though, Meghan’s ease seemed to come from the fact that the ceremony reflected her and her new husband’s sensibilities and their decisions — especially at a style of wedding that’s usually hemmed in by tradition. Meghan’s pathbreaking status as a biracial American bride in a royal wedding echoed through the proceedings: Surely this was the first wedding in Windsor family history to feature a black American bishop declaiming at some length about the power of love. Rev. Michael Curry’s address was political — not in the way many sermons are outside of royal weddings, but in a way that cannot possibly be made palatably bland for all audiences. He spoke with fervor and with volume about love, and the ways in which it might extend beyond individual couples and toward greater justice and respect among all humanity.

That it wasn’t made up of platitudes felt like a provocation; its engagement with the world around us, citing both the mixed blessing of social media and the experience of American slaves, made it clear. The sermon shook viewers at home out of complacency, and seemed on television to rattle various royals. (Everyone will have their favorite cutaway; mine was to Kate Middleton, Meghan’s sister-in-law and the bride at a far more staid royal wedding, glancing briefly but significantly at Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.) It was followed by a gospel choir singing an arrangement of the soul classic “Stand by Me.” Previous royal weddings had been ones at which the world was meant to look in awe; this was a wedding to which the world had been invited. That it didn’t seem to play in the room is precisely the point.

A bride can say little at her wedding except her vows. But Meghan expressed a confident readiness to exist on the world stage as the closest thing to one’s own person as a member of the royal family can be. And in choices made as part of a couple, Meghan made clear that her corner of the monarchy will be one marked by engagement and pursuit of justice and charity. It may not be easy: She joins a family that has spent the years since World War II in skittish retreat from the world marked by momentary attempts at engagement.

To be sure, the Queen and her retinue have learned a good deal about the moods of its subjects since its mishandling of Princess Diana, whose charitable impulses and whose emotional openness they never understood in life and whose sterling reputation they failed to reckon with, at first, in death. But the modern royal has, before Meghan, looked more like Prince William or Kate — a figure who seems less fussily old-fashioned than their ancestors but who still avoids politics or, really, any topic of interest at all. They let the Windsor legacy do the talking. Meghan has already put that legacy to work in intriguing ways, proving adept at working within, and beyond, traditional venues and strictures. When a sermon about what love really means when it comes to how we live in society happens at a royal wedding, it redounds around a world that’s ready to hear it.

Many royals shun the spotlight, given all the headaches that come with it. Meghan, shrewd in her choices and earnest in her passions, lets her light shine, to quote the gospel song that played as guests exited. Within the bounds of royal tradition, Meghan has already squeezed in a wedding that reflected meaningful thought and concern for the world. One wonders what she’ll be able to accomplish with the tools at her disposal now that she’s a member of the family.

Queen Gives Instrument of Consent to Harry and Meghan’s Marriage

She approves! Queen Elizabeth II has given her Instrument of Consent, which is her formal approval for Prince Harry to wed Meghan Markle, just one week ahead of their May 19 nuptials.

Buckingham Palace shared an image of the handwritten document on Saturday, May 12. “NOW KNOW YE that We have consented and do by these Presents signify Our Consent to the contracting of Matrimony between Our Most Dearly Beloved Grandson Prince Henry Charles Albert David of Wales, K.C.V.O., and Rachel Meghan Markle,” the document reads.

The Instrument of Consent was drafted by the Crown Office and is sealed with the Great Seal of the Realm, and the Queen’s signature, “Elizabeth R,” is featured at the top right of the document. The coronet for Prince Harry, 33, is on the lower left side and the Commonwealth symbol can be found on the lower right side of the document. The design to the right of the text also includes a rose, which is the national flower of the United States. Next to the rose, there are two golden poppies, the flower of California, where Markle, 36, was born. The document will be presented to the pair after the wedding.

The written approvals are part of the Royal Marriages Act of 1772, which legally requires all of King George II’s direct descendants to receive the monarch’s consent in marriage or the union is considered to be invalid. The Parliament act reads: “A person who (when the person marries) is one of the six persons next in line of succession to the crown must obtain the consent of Her Majesty before marrying.” Harry falls under this category since he is sixth in line for the throne, behind his father Prince Charles, brother Prince William, nephew Prince George, niece, Princess Charlotte, and newborn nephew Prince Louis.

The Queen previously gave her consent for her grandson to marry Markle after a meeting at Buckingham Palace in March. “I declare my consent to a contract of matrimony between my most dearly beloved grandson Prince Henry Charles Albert David of Wales and Rachel Meghan Markle, which I consent I am causing to be signified under the Great Seal and to be entered in the books of the Privy Council,” the Queen said in a statement at the time.

The royal and the Suits alum announced that they were engaged in November 2017 and will be tying the knot at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle next weekend.

Meghan Markle’s brother warns Prince Harry

OHMYGOSSIP — Meghan Markle’s half brother has urged Prince Harry not to wed the actress.
Thomas Markle Jr. has penned an open letter to the flame-haired royal, telling him that Meghan is “obviously not the right woman” for him.
In the letter, shared with In Touch Weekly, he wrote: “As more time passes to your royal wedding, it became very clear that this is the biggest mistake in royal wedding history. Meghan Markle is obviously not the right woman for you. I’m confused why you don’t see the real Meghan that the whole world now sees. Meghan’s attempt to act the part of a princess like a below C average Hollywood actress is getting old.
“What kind of person starts out by using her own father until he’s bankrupt, then forgets about him in Mexico leaving him broke, over mostly all her debts. And when it’s time to pay him back she forgets her own father like she never knew him. It’s very apparent that her tiny bit of Hollywood fame has gone to her head. Not to mention, to top it all off, she doesn’t invite her own family and instead invites complete strangers to the wedding.
“Who does that? You and the royal family should put an end to this fake fairytale wedding before it’s too late. Meghan is still my sister. She is family. So whatever happens is up to her, whether she wants to forget knowing me or the rest of her family, family comes first. Also, you would think that a royal wedding would bring a torn family closer together, but I guess we’re all distant family to Meg.”
Thomas Markle Jr. has not seen his sister since 2011 when they both attended their grandmother Doris’ funeral. He also claims he has not been invited to the royal wedding, which takes place on May 19.

Magical UK travel destinations for real Harry Potter lovers

ADVERTISEMENT


Let’s be honest, who doesn’t love Harry Potter? Being a Muggle is boring. Whether you want to be a witch, wizard, or House Elf (there might be someone out there), there’s nothing like seeing the Harry Potter magic right before your very eyes. Unless you’ve just been given your Hogwarts acceptance letter, it’s not as easy as taking the Floo Network right to Diagon Alley. Nevertheless, there are some places that come pretty close. Check out these five spots in the UK that you need to visit if you’re a Harry Potter lover.

Warner Bros Studio Tour: The Making of Harry Potter

If you’ve always wanted to dine in the Great Hall, take a trip down to Diagon Alley, play Quidditch on a broomstick or have a bumpy ride on the Knight Bus, the Warner Bros Studio Tour has everything a Harry Potter lover could possibly want. The main studio was turned into this tour after filming ended and is now the ultimate museum for Potterheads. It includes everything from the sets, props, a replica of Privet Drive, making of the sets, costumes and so much more. And it’s just a short ride away from the center of London!

The Elephant House

We bet you’re wondering – The Elephant House? There were no Elephants in Harry Potter? You’re right there. Instead, this was the place where it all began. The Elephant House is a small coffee shop and tea room in Edinburgh, Scotland where J.K Rowling first got the inspiration for Harry Potter and the Wider Wizarding World. From looking up at Edinburgh Castle, Rowling brought to life some of our favorite characters, locations, and magical creatures. She wrote most of the outline of the first story on a train between Edinburgh and London, but wrote the majority of The Chamber of Secrets in this little hideaway.

Platform 9 ¾ at King’s Cross Station

You can try running through it, but we’re not sure it will work (if it does, we’ll be incredibly impressed). If you’re traveling into London, you’ll be passing through the major stations anyway, so it makes sense to take a trip to the station that Harry and his fellow Hogwarts schoolmates used to take them to the Hogwarts Express. The station has honored the story in the best way possible, by signposting a pillar in-between platforms 9 and 10 as ‘Platform 9 ¾’ and is complete with a half-concealed trolley and an owl cage.

Bodleian Library at the University of Oxford

If you’re a Harry Potter fan, you’re probably also a bit of a bookworm – so visiting this library is a treat for two reasons. The Bodleian Library was the location of many Harry Potter movie scenes – from the Hospital Wing to the ballroom that was used for the (slightly unfortunate) dancing lessons with Professor McGonagall in preparation for the Yule Ball. As you go further into the library, you’ll also notice huge bookcases, with books chained to the walls. Yep, you guessed it. The Restricted Section.

The Jacobite through West Coast Railways

If you really wanted to feel like you were aboard the Hogwarts Express on the way to Hogwarts, the Jacobite Steam Train is the closest you’ll get to the real thing. The train and the track were used for all the aerial shots of the Hogwarts Express (with the iconic bridge) and one of the carriages – Carriage D – was used as the interior of the train. Although we can’t guarantee the Trolley Witch will come along with some Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans…

It’s every Harry Potter fan’s dream to ride on the Hogwarts Express, visit the Great Hall and see where J. K. Rowling first imagined their favorite characters in the movies and books – and now we can! We know where we’re going to do our ‘research’ – a.k.a dressing up in a cloak and carrying around a stick, swish-and-flicking while proclaiming Wingardium Leviosa.

BEST ENTERTAINMENT DEALS UPDATE:

These are the things Meghan and Harry aren’t allowed to wear on their wedding day

And wait ’til you see the wedding guest rules

Meghan Markle visits Titanic Belfast.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle visit to Belfast, Northern Ireland, UK – 23 Mar 2018

Royal fashion etiquette is a law unto itself, from dictating which kind of bag Kate Middleton should wear to whether or not Princess Diana was allowed to wear gloves. So it comes as no surprise that the Royal wedding has a very strict dress code.

The wedding invites went out earlier this month, and the formal dress code was set: day dresses and hats for the women; uniforms, morning coats, or lounge suits for the men. But there are a few other rules wedding guests are expected to follow, as well as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, so here’s a breakdown which will especially be handy for non-Royal and non-British guests – well, we wouldn’t want a sartorial faux pas from Meghan’s Suits castmates now, would we?

Female guests should wear hats and day dresses for the day

Beatrice and Eugenie didn’t just wear hats to become the meme of the year (well, pretty sure that wasn’t their intention either), they had to. Ladies must wear hats in church as a sign of respect, and the bigger and more jovial the better. However, hats aren’t recommended for the evening, as that’s when the tiaras come out. For the day, dresses are expected to be on the conservative side (it’s a church wedding after all), and colour is encouraged, though of course black and white are discouraged.

For the evening, expect guests to wear fancier and longer dresses.

Male guests should wear uniforms, morning coats or lounge suits

According to Town & Country,  military men are encouraged to wear their uniforms, but failing that, a morning coat and all the trimmings is a must. Think tail coat, waistcoat, tie etc, though if that’s not their bag, a lounge suit, which despite the name is really just a nice suit, is allowed. However it’s deemed ‘inappropriate’ for men to wear hats, and polished black shoes are a must.

Prince Harry will probably wear a uniform

When Prince William married Kate, he wore his uniform, and as Harry was in the military too, it’s likely he will follow suit as it’s traditional for Royal men to do so.

Meghan Markle’s bouquet will have myrtle

According to Bustle, it’s a Royal tradition to include myrtle in the wedding bouquet, as it symbolises love. It all started when Victoria included a sprig in her bouquet, and it has since been grown in the Royal garden. Princess Diana, Kate Middleton and the Queen all had it in theirs.

Meghan Markle will have a classic manicure

No bold colours for Meghan, as only neutral manis are allowed for Royal events.

The bride’s wedding ring must contain Welsh gold

Another tradition, started by the Queen’s parents. When they got married, they got given a gold nugget from a mine in North Wales, and a bit has been used for each Royal bride since.

Meghan Markle’s wedding dress will be by a British designer

This isn’t official, but since Queen Victoria, The Queen, Princess Diana and Kate Middleton all wore British designers, it’s safe to assume Meghan will follow suit. Which ties into the whole Erdem designing the wedding dress very nicely indeed.

What was Verne Troyer’s cause of death, when did the actor play Mini-Me in Austin Powers and was he in Harry Potter?

VERNE Troyer was one of Hollywood’s most recognisable faces in Hollywood in the 90s and 00s with a slew of hit roles to his name.

The star made famous in the Austin Powers movies, who tragically passed away, will go down in history as one of the acting community’s brightest stars. Here is what we know about him.

Verne Troyer was an extremely positive person and brought light to every set he worked on
Verne Troyer was an extremely positive person and brought light to every set he worked on
PA:Press Association

Who was Verne Troyer?

Verne Troyer was an American actor who was notable for his height which was caused by achondroplasia dwarfism.

This never stopped him achieving great heights – he was best known for playing Mini-Me in the Austin Powers series and he also starred in British film Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone as Griphook the Goblin.

The Michigan-born actor, unfortunately, had a sex tape leaked in 2008 by his then-girlfriend Ranae Shrider.

And then in 2009, he appeared on Celebrity Big Brother UK.

Although his film output declined over the years, he never stopped doing what he loved – he starred in the Keith Lemon film in 2012 and starred as The Gnome in Gnome Alone in 2018.

Verne and his girlfriend Brittney Powell appeared on Celebrity Wife Swap in 2015.

When did Verne Troyer die?

Verne passed away on April 21, 2018.

The star’s family confirmed the news with a statement on his Instagram page.

“It is with great sadness and incredibly heavy hearts to write that Verne passed away today.

“Verne was an extremely caring individual. He wanted to make everyone smile, be happy, and laugh. Anybody in need, he would help to any extent possible.

“Verne hoped he made a positive change with the platform he had and worked towards spreading that message every day.

He was most famous for playing Mini Me in the Austin Powers movies

New Line

What was the cause of his death?

At the time of writing it is not clear what his cause of death was.

His family, however, have issued a statement that says: “Depression and Suicide are very serious issues.

“You never know what kind of battle someone is going through inside. Be kind to one another.

“And always know, it’s never too late to reach out to someone for help.”

The star was rushed to hospital with alcohol poisoning and had suicidal thoughts weeks before his death.

He was held for 72 hours after friends of the actor called emergency services to check up on him after becoming concerned he was “upset, drunk and suicidal.”

On April 24, 2018 it was reported he had a “very high” amount of alcohol inside his system when he died, his coroner has revealed, and that his death was being considered as a “possible suicide”.


When did he play Mini-Me in Austin Powers?

Verne starred as Mini-Me in the second and third Austin Powers movies – The Spy Who Shagged Me and Goldmember.

The character was a clone of Dr Evil and was identical to the maniacal villain in every way – except he was “1/8th the size”.

Mini-Me has very little dialogue in the films except for the occasional screen and he preferred to communicate with written language.

Austin Powers had been thwarted by Mini-Me on many occasions and proved himself to be even stronger than his original counterpart.

People Thought Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Were Ridiculously Cute in Matching Outfits for the Queen’s Birthday

Prince Harry and bride-to-be Meghan Markle were matching in navy blue at Queen Elizabeth’s star-studded birthday concert Saturday night — and people on social media took notice.

Markle wore a navy Stella McCartney caped dress with matching navy suede heels by Manolo Blahnik and carried a clutch by Naeem Khan. Prince Harry wore a smart navy blue suit. The two stepped out together for this event a little more than a month out from the royal wedding on May 19.

Queen Elizabeth, who turned 92 on Saturday, wore gold to her celebration at Royal Albert Hall.

 

The event was attended by most of the royal family — with one exception being Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, who is expecting her third child on Monday — and members of the public who could snag a ticket. (For those who couldn’t, the concert was broadcast live on BBC One and BBC Radio 2.)

The lineup fit for Her Majesty included Sting and Shaggy (who recently released an album together), Kylie Minogue, Sir Tom Jones, Shawn Mendes, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, the BBC Concert Orchestra, and more.

The event concluded with Queen Elizabeth acknowledging the crowd with a wave, but not before she gave a coy smile (and maybe an eye roll?) during a speech made by her son Prince Charles after he addressed her as “Your Majesty” and then “Mummy.”

Prince Harry, Meghan Markle Attend Women’s Empowerment Reception

GIRL POWER: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepped out to attend a Women’s Empowerment reception on Thursday in London.
Hosted by Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, at the Royal Aeronautical Society, the event included members from charities and organizations to aid gender equality and girls education.
The event is a part of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in London, which is taking place from April 16 to 20. The engaged couple met with charity workers involved with their initiatives to empower females.
Markle was formerly a Women’s Advocate for the United Nations, and took a trip to India last year, where she toured the Myna Mahila Foundation and learned about the charity’s work to fight “period poverty.” Many women in India have limited access to sanitary protection during their menstrual periods.
She wore a little black dress from Black Halo.

What will Meghan Markle’s royal title be after she marries Prince Harry?

And why aren’t the public happy about it?

Geoff Pugh/REX/Shutterstock

The royal wedding is fast approaching, with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle set to wed on 19th May at St. George’s Chapel, in Windsor Castle.

With just a month to go until the big day, there’s plenty of wedding prep for the royal family to busy themselves with – everything from finding the perfect Philip Treacy-style fascinator and buying the newlyweds a fitting wedding present to creating a coat of arms for Thomas Markle, Meghan’s father – a traditional royal gift to the father of the bride.

Something that needs particular thought ahead of the big day however is the Queen’s gifts to the royal couple, with the monarch set to give Prince Harry not one but two royal titles as a wedding gift – expected to also bestow a royal title on his bride, Meghan.

But what will Meghan’s royal title be?

Meghan’s post-wedding title has reportedly been decided upon already, but to the dismay of the public it looks like despite technically being a princess of the UK, she won’t be given an actual princess title, most likely being given a Duchess title instead.

There are reports that Prince Harry is likely to be made the Duke of Sussex on his wedding day, in which case Meghan would be made the Duchess of Sussex – much like Kate and Wills’ titles, known officially as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

What will Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal titles be?

There is a lot of speculation surrounding potential royal titles for Harry and Meghan but the top choices seem to be the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, the Duke and Duchess of Clarence and Avondale, the Duke and Duchess of Connaught or the Duke and Duchess of Windsor.

It looks like we’ll have to wait till May 19th to find out!

Announcing their engagement last year, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to wed next month on May 19th at St. George’s Chapel, in Windsor castle.

With just over a month to go until the big day, there’s plenty of wedding prep for the royal family and its guests, from finding the perfect Philip Treacy-style fascinator to buying the newlyweds a fitting wedding present – what to get the couple who has everything!

Someone who doesn’t seem phased by the daunting task is Meghan’s Suits co-star, Patrick J. Adams, playing the future royal’s fiancé on the popular US show.

Meghan and Patrick are both leaving Suits after this season, with their characters, Mike and Rachel, set to wed in a two-hour season 7 finale on April 25th – just six days after her actual wedding to Prince Harry.

When asked whether he’ll be attending the royal wedding, Adams replied, ‘Whether I’m there or not, the Vitamix is going to the wedding.’

Prince Harry, Meghan Markle Make Impromptu Visit to Ireland

IRISH JAUNT: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made an impromptu visit to Northern Ireland on Friday.
The engaged couple traveled to Belfast where they met with teens and children from Amazing the Space, a youth-led initiative. The program, launched by Prince Harry last September, promotes young people as ambassadors of peace. They met with members of the organization at the Eikon Exhibition Centre and spoke with students. They also took in a tour of The Crown Liquor Saloon, a former gin palace now run by The National Trust, and the Titanic Belfast, a visitor attraction where the RMS Titanic was built.
Markle channeled inspiration from the colors of the Irish flag wearing a Mackage coat, Victoria Beckham knit top and Greta Constantine skirt in green and white hues. She accessorized her look with a Charlotte Elizabeth tote and Jimmy Choo heels.

We are ALL getting this present on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding day

It’s no bank holiday but it’s probably the next best thing…

Geoff Pugh/REX/Shutterstock

The countdown to the royal wedding is officially on, with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle set to wed on May 19th at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.

The past few months have been consumed by what we can expect from a Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wedding, with updates on everything from who will be Meghan Markle’s dress designer and how the couple are deciding on their seating plan to who will be performing at the reception – it’s looking like Elton John.

In fact, we know so much about how the royal couple and their guests will be spending the day that we’ve completely forgotten to work out how we will be marking the occasion ourselves.

When Prince William and Kate Middleton married on Friday 29th April 2011, the day was declared a bank holiday as a result, allowing us all to celebrate with street parties up and down the country. It seemed plausible therefore that we might get a day off work for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s nuptials.

kiss

Unfortunately, for, well, everyone, the couple have chosen to get married on a Saturday so there’s no chance of a day off or a bank holiday, but as a consolation the government has decided to give us all a present to make celebrating easier.

According to the Independent, Home Secretary Amber Rudd has announced that pubs across the UK will have their licensing hours extended over the royal wedding weekend – giving us more time to ‘join together and celebrate’.

‘As shown by the support for the proposal to extend licensing hours, it’s clear that the public back the idea of having more time to raise a glass to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on a day of national celebration,’ she announced.

Well that’s something we suppose.

Princes William and Harry Lay Out Charitable Vision at Royal Foundation Forum

FAB FOUR: In their first public engagement as a foursome, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on Wednesday laid out their long-term plan for charity work at the Royal Foundation Forum in London.
Set up by Princes William and Harry in 2011, the Royal Foundation is the main platform for the young royals’ philanthropic efforts. The Duchess of Cambridge became a patron in 2011 and Markle, who will marry Prince Harry in May, will soon become the fourth patron, Kensington Palace said.
The theme of the event was “Making a Difference Together.”
“When we work together, we are greater than the sum of our parts,” said Prince William. “All of the projects have seen us working to change mind-sets to make a real and lasting difference. They have all seen us trying to tackle the biggest challenges of the day. They have all seen the foundation listening and taking advice from charities and experts rather than showing up and pretending we have all the answers.”
The duchess — who wore a tailored dress from Seraphine — spoke about Heads Together, a mental health charity: “The mental health of children and adults is one area where a long-term view will

Meghan Markle Wore 3 Trends in Her Official Engagement Photos With Harry

In the latest Prince Harry and Meghan Markle news, Kensington Palace has released the pair’s official engagement portraits. The shots were taken by Alex Lubomirski and they are stunning, to say the least. The happy couple’s photos were taken earlier this week at Frogmore House in Windsor (the town that they’ll marry in on May 19), and while we only see a glimpse of a cream sweater that Markle is wearing in one of the photos, the other two are clear indicators that Markle is very into the tastefully-sheer trend.

Just yesterday, for the Queen’s annual pre-Christmas lunch, Markle donned a black Self-Portrait dress with a sheer-lace bodice. In the portraits, Markle also chose a sheer-topped dress. The gown, by London-based designers Ralph & Russo, features metallic embellishments and a playful fringed skirt, which are two other trends (metallics and fringe) that are currently going strong. The glamorous yet tasteful look pretty much solidifies that the sheer trend isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, given Markle’s newfound sartorial influence.

See the gorgeous photos below!

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have ‘profound sense of commitment’ to each other

By Simon Perry

From the Editors of PEOPLE

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are showing a “profound sense of commitment” to each other and to marrying in the Church of England, the Archbishop of Canterbury has said.

Most Revd and Rt Hon Justin Welby, who was named the Archbishop of Canterbury in 2013, has met Harry several times and says that the couple is not going through with a grand religious service out of a sense of tradition.

“I am very, very sure after conversations that this is no tick-box exercise of ‘We ought to get married in church,’ ” he told BBC Radio Four’s Today program. “There is a profound sense of commitment, of seriousness both about faith and about their lives together which is quite inspirational.”

Meghan will be baptised and confirmed in the Church of England before her May wedding.

Speaking of the wedding, Welby said: “Of course it’s important because people will look at it and they’ll see a model of how two people commit their lives to one another before God, in the presence of millions of people.

“That’s going to be wonderful, it’s always a beautiful moment.

“Every wedding is profoundly beautiful.”

The one thing Prince Harry is said to have given up for Meghan Markle

It’s give and take, guys

From the editors of LOOK

There’s been an awful lot of talk about how Meghan Markle’s life is going to change now that she’s set to join the royal family. The 36-year-old has had to quit Suits, the American TV show that found her fame as an actress, move to the UK and even undergo training for a possible hostage situation.

But has anybody thought about what Prince Harry might have to give up? Relationships are all about compromise, after all.

According to recent reports, Hazza is going to change something important for his bride-to-be.

Yup. The prince is said to be putting his smoking days behind him – great news for his health, and for his marriage.

Rex

Harry has previously been pictured a number of times with a cigarette in his hand, whilst out with friends.

Now though, the Mail on Sunday reports that the 33-year-old is ready to be a little more health-conscious – just like his fiancée – quitting the habit for good.

A friend of the couple reportedly told the newspaper: ‘Harry has promised no smoking at all at home. It’s not nice for Meghan as a non-smoker. So there’s no more hanging out of the window for a quick puff.

‘Harry has quit for Meghan.’

So, there you have it.

Harry Styles Goes from the Hospital to the Late Late Show Stage as He Fills in for James Corden

The Late Late Show got a Style-ish makeover Tuesday night.

Following James Corden‘s announcement that he and his wife Julia Carey had welcomed their third child together, his good friend Harry Styles took over hosting duties on the CBS talk show.

The “Sign of the Times” singer, 23, greeted the enthusiastic audience, telling them, “I actually have some great news. Just half an hour ago, James and his wife Jules had a beautiful baby girl.”

Styles told the audience he “was just at the hospital before I came to fill in and she looks a lot like James — mainly because James looks like a giant baby.”

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

While he looked at ease in his hosting duties (which included interview guests Owen Wilson, Jane Krakowski and Joel Edgerton), Styles said he was given two hours warning before stepping on the Late Late Show‘s stage.

“I was sitting at home two hours ago in this suit, obviously,” he said. “I got the call Jules was going into labor so James naturally called the funniest man he knew… he obviously wasn’t available.”

Styles and Corden, 39, have frequently collaborated together on the late night show — including a week-long residency by Styles in May in which he appeared in each episode to perform songs off his self-titled debut album.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

The former One Direction member also addressed his surprising kiss with Corden on Carpool Karaoke which had aired the night before, saying, “I would like to take the opportunity to announce that… we will also be having a baby!”

Corden announced the birth of his third child with his wife, and not Styles, via Twitter Tuesday.

“Today we welcomed a beautiful baby daughter into the world. Both she and her mother are doing great. We can’t stop smiling,” The Late Late Show host wrote. “Thank you Harry  for stepping in to host the show at 2 and a half hours notice! x x x”

Harry and Meghan: Everything We Learnt From Their First TV Interview

From the romantic proposal to the wedding plans, we learnt a lot from the royal couple’s first TV interview…

LONDON, ENGLAND – NOVEMBER 27: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle during an official photocall to announce the engagement of Prince Harry and actress Meghan Markle at The Sunken Gardens at Kensington Palace on November 27, 2017 in London, England. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been a couple officially since November 2016 and are due to marry in Spring 2018. (Photo by Samir Hussein/Samir Hussein/WireImage)

In case you have been under a rock today, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged.

The British weather didn’t dampen the happy couple’s sprits, earlier, as they appeared in the Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace for their engagement photo call. The Prince said that he was, “thrilled, over the moon… very glad it’s not raining as well.” Markle mimicked the sentiments remarking that she is, “so very happy, thank you.”

After these small pieces of information, our hunger to know more was settled when Harry and Meghan settled down for their first TV interview with the BBC’s Mishal Husain. Here is what we learnt about the proposal and beyond…

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Proposal…

Spoiler alert, Harry is quite traditional. “It was just such an amazing surprise, it was so sweet and natural and very romantic. He got on one knee.”

Was it an instant yes, Meghan, “Yes! As a matter of fact I could barely let you (Harry) finish proposing. I just said, ‘can I say yes now!”

Harry continues, “then there were hugs and I still had the ring in my hand, so I said, ‘can I give you the ring?’ And she said, ‘oh yes, the ring!’ It was a really nice moment. It was just the two of us and I think I managed to catch her by surprise, as well.”

They were cooking roast chicken at home when Harry popped the question.

It was love at first sight for Meghan and Harry…

Harry said, “I knew I wanted to marry her, the moment I met her.” Jesus, that is beyond cute. The Prince continued to say, “the fact I fell in love with Meghan so incredibly quickly was confirmation to me that everything was aligned. This beautiful woman tripped and fell into my life.”

Harry thinks Meghan will be the perfect royal…

“I know she will be unbelievably good at the job part of it as well. Which is a huge relief to me as she will be able to cope with everything else that comes with it.”

Harry and Meghan’s third date was a camping holiday…

Harry stepped in to tell the tale, “We were introduced through a mutual friend. We met once, then twice, with back to back dates in London which was last July.”

He continued to say, “then it was three, maybe four weeks later that I persuaded her to join me in Botswana where we camped out under the stars together for five days. It was crucial to me that we were by ourselves so we were able to get to know each other.”

Meghan: “We met on a blind date…”

The 36 year-old actress stepped in to give her account of the events, “it was definitely a set up! It was a blind date for sure. We talk about it now and even then because I am from the states you don’t grow up with the same understanding of the Royal Family. So while now I understand very clearly there is a global interest there – I didn’t know much about him. So when our friend wanted to set us up the only question I asked was, ‘well, is he nice?’ If he wasn’t kind it didn’t seem like it would make sense.”

Harry pre-warned Meghan about becoming a royal…

“I think very safely say – as naïve as it sounds now having gone through this learning curve in the last year and a half – I did not have any understanding of what it would be like,” Meghan said when asked about entering into the fold.

Harry concurred that the pair were not properly prepared for the media reaction, “I tried to warn you (Meghan) as much as possible what it’s like. But I think we were both surprised by the initial reaction and what happened from there. You can have as many conversations a you like but we were totally unprepared for what would happen after that.”

Meghan’s fame didn’t prepare her for the media reaction…

“I think also because there is a misconception because I have worked in the entertainment industry that this is something I am familiar with… but I have never been part of tabloids and pop culture to that degree. I lived a relatively quiet life so that was a stark difference out of the gate.”

The Suits actress continued, “I made the choice not to read anything, positive or negative. Instead we focused all our energy on nurturing our relationship.”

REX

Meghan on the negative undertones about her ethnicity in the press…

“Of course its disheartening. It’s a shame that this is the climate, in this world, to focus this much on that. But at the end of the day I am just proud of who I am and where I have come from. We have never focused on any of that, we have just focused on who we are as a couple.”

Harry on introducing Meghan to Prince William and Kate…

“It was exciting. I had been seeing her for a period of time when I didn’t tell anybody at all. Then William and Catherine were longing to meet her. As neighbors, we got quite a few meetings in by now.”

“Catherine has been absolutely wonderful as has William as well. They have been fantastic support and with my father we have had a handful of meetings and teas and gatherings over at his place as well.”

Meghan concurred that she had really enjoyed getting to know Kate especially, “she’s been absolutely wonderful!”

Meghan on meeting the Queen…

“I have met the Queen a couple of times,” Meghan responded to questions about meeting the Queen. But what is it like meeting the Queen as Prince Harry’s future princess? “It’s incredible. I think that to meet her through his lens, not only with just the honour and respect he has for her as the monarch but also the love that he has for her as his grandmother – all of those layers have been so important to me. So when I met her I had such a deep understanding and an incredible respect for getting to spend that time with her. She’s an incredible woman!”

The Corgi’s took to Meghan straight away…

Harry was not amused the Queen’s corgis took to Meghan immediately, “the corgis took to you (Meghan) straight away. I have spent 33 years getting barked at and this one walks in and nothing,” Harry commented with Meghan continuing with, “they were laying on my feet during tea – it was very sweet.”

The pair on Meghan’s engagement ring…

Acting as a QVC-esque salesman for the ring Harry stepped in to talk through the engagement ring, “the ring is yellow gold – her favourite – and the main stone itself I resourced from Botswana and the little diamonds either side are from my mother’s jewellery collection – to make sure with us on this crazy journey together.”

Meghan is quite the fan of the ring too, “it’s beautiful and he designed it – it’s incredible!”

Meghan and Harry on Princess Diana…

When asked by the reporter how important it was to Meghan to be wearing jewels once owned by the late Princess Diana the actress said, “I think that everything about Harry’s thoughtfulness and including that and not being able to meet his Mom it’s so important to me and to know she’s a part of this with us.”

Princess Diara iconic style

Harry responded to a question about what Diana would have thought of Meghan with, “they would have been as thick as thieves without question. She would have been over the moon and jumping up and down and so excited for me. She would have been a best friend with Meghan. I am sure she is with us and jumping up and down somewhere else.”

This Is Why Prince Harry Will Be the Best Dad: Watch

Now that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged, it’s only a matter of time until the couple announces a little lord or lady is on the way. 

“I’ve longed for kids since I was very, very young,” Harry revealed to ABC News in 2012. “I’m waiting to find the right person. Someone who is willing to take on the job.” And in April, he reiterated that he’s ready for diaper duty, telling The Telegraph’s Mad World podcast: “I would love to have kids.”

There’s no question that Harry, who is godfather to six of his friends’ children, will make a terrific dad. He prefers hugs to handshakes. He loves PlayStation. And he has a way with toddlers. That much was clear at the 2017 Invictus Games in September when Harry caught a 2-year-old girl swiping his popcorn — and then proceeded to entertain her by pulling funny faces. Watch the video above to hear why the 33-year-old royal was born to be a parent.

Harry found the perfect parenting partner in Markle. In February 2016, the former Suits actress, 36, traveled to Rwanda, where she taught students to paint with watercolors. And she regularly posts photos of herself goofing around with her friends’ kids. 

Harry and Markle announced their engagement at Kensington Palace in London on Monday, November 27. Harry adorably told reporters that he knew Markle was The One “the first time we met.”

Early on Monday morning, palace officials confirmed Harry and Markle’s plans to wed. “His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales is delighted to announce the engagement of Prince Harry to Ms. Meghan Markle,” Clarence House said in a statement on behalf of Harry’s father, Prince Charles. “The wedding will take place in Spring 2018. Further details about the wedding day will be announced in due course.”

Harry and the American actress met in London in 2016 and they made their first joint appearance this September at the Invictus Games. She moved to London earlier this month after finishing her seventh and final season of Suits.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Will Wed in the Summer

Meghan Markle finished filming her final episode of Suits in Toronto on November 17. Now on to her next job: planning a royal a wedding. 

Though the 36-year-old actress and Prince Harry, who commissioned a ring for Markle using diamonds from a brooch that once belonged to his mom, Princess Diana, have yet to announce their engagement, a date has been set. “It will definitely be a summer wedding,” a source reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly.

Markle, who just moved out of her Toronto apartment, will reside in Harry’s two-bedroom Nottingham Cottage, already outfitted with the plants and candles she started bringing in to decorate the place last spring. “There are are no plans for them to live separately,” a friend of Markle’s tells the magazine. “Meghan will move right in.”

Her future brother-and-sister-in-law, Prince William and Duchess Kate, are a short walk away if she has any questions. “You can’t trust anyone more than family,” a source tells Us, “so it’s no surprise Harry wants them to help make this transition easy for Meghan.”

Us Weekly Meghan Markle cover

Expect an engagement announcement from Markle and Harry, 33, early in the new year. An insider says the official proclamation — including a photo call at Kensington Palace and a syndicated TV interview — “will likely be some time in January. It gives Meghan some to get settled and will be a great start to 2018.”

By late June, says another source, Markle —  previously wed to talent manager Trevor Engelson from to 2011 to 2013 — will become Harry’s bride. “With Suits over, so so is her life in Toronto,” says a friend of Markle’s. “But she’s really excited about starting a new chapter with Harry.”

14 thoughts we had while watching Harry Styles’ weird, new ‘Kiwi’ music video

TwitterFacebook

Harry Styles just released his new music video for “Kiwi” Wednesday, and I have a lot of thoughts. And by thoughts, I mean questions.

The video takes place in a school with children, custom Gucci suits, pastries, puppies, and a very dramatic food fight scene. That all sounds great, but it doesn’t go with the song—at all. 

I love anything Styles does as I believe he can do no wrong, but you must admit, his taste in music videos so far are a little on the odd side.

For starters, why is a Harry Styles female mini-me walking like she has some unfinished business to do? Where’s Harry? Is this supposed to be Harry? Read more…

Michelle Obama and Prince Harry Wore the Chicest Coordinating Outfits

Prince Harry and the Obamas love to support one another’s causes. You may remember that former president Barack Obama attended the royal’s Invictus Games event back in September, and now Prince Harry is returning the favor by supporting the Obama Foundation Summit in Chicago today.

Ahead of the event, Prince Harry and Michelle Obama paid a surprise visit to a local high school, where the stylish duo dressed in coordinating light blue work shirts and pants. (Michelle, of course, wore a fashion girl’s version of the classic button-up shirt.) When a powerhouse duo get together to do good work—and dress well while doing it— they’re pretty much unstoppable.

Why Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will probably get married at this time

Pencil it into your diaries

prince harry and meghan markle wedding

From the Editors of InStyleUK
Words by Jennifer Davis

Will royal wedding bells be ringing soon? All signs point to yes. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have had several important milestones lately, including their first public appearance at the Invictus Games in Toronto, but the most telling indication that an engagement announcement is forthcoming is a recent meeting with Queen Elizabeth herself.

According to the Daily Mail, the Suits actress met with Her Majesty on Thursday, two days after she returned from her extended summer trip to Scotland. Since Prince Harry is fifth in line to the throne, he must get the Queen’s approval to marry, and it seems like she’s received the official royal thumbs up.

Markle has already been introduced to his father Prince Charles and step-mother the Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, as well as brother Prince William and Duchess Kate, so the meeting with the Queen was the final royal approval the 33-year-old Prince needed. 

With all the royals aligned, it seems like they’ve already begun discussing a wedding date. “William and Kate are expecting their third baby mid April, and Harry won’t want to overshadow the birth of another prince or princess, and, of course, the Duchess will need some time to recover before she is at such a high-profile event,” a source told Vanity Fair. “The most likely date is early summer 2018, which neatly ties in with Harry and Meghan’s second anniversary.”

Markle recently told the producers of the USA show Suits that she won’t be returning for another season, which has everyone believing that they may already be engaged. We’ll be waiting with bated breath for the official announcement.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Head to Africa — Where William Proposed to Kate!

And a very happy birthday to you, Meghan Markle!

The Suits actress was spotted with her boyfriend of nearly a year, Prince Harry, heading off to Africa for a safari vacation on her 36th birthday, according to The Sun.

Wearing matching baseball caps and with their arms around one another, Harry and Markle walked across the airport tarmac carrying their bags and big smiles on their faces. Markle also carried what looks to be a framed photo covered in bubble wrap.

“Harry has been planning this holiday for a long time,” a source told The Sun, who obtained the photos, of the birthday getaway. “He’s made the trip incredibly romantic. They’ll go on boats across the lake, walk in the bush at dawn and camp under the stars.”

The destination is sure to raise some questions — after all, Africa is where Prince William took the then-Kate Middleton to pop the question seven years ago.

“Who knows what will happen when they’re watching a sensational African sunset together?” the source said. “Maybe he’ll get down on one knee. Harry regards Africa as his spiritual home and has often talked of how he can get away from it all there.”

Harry has often spoken about his love for Africa, calling it the place where “I feel more like myself than anywhere in the world.”

“Obviously he wants to show Meghan what an amazing place it is and create new memories together,” the source told The Sun. “Harry’s done a lot of conservation work in Africa with endangered el­e­phants and black rhinos and he’ll show them to the woman he wants to marry.”

Elton John Says Prince Harry Inherited Diana’s ‘Incredible’ Gift of Making People Feel ‘Everything Was Great’

Nearly 20 years after Princess Diana‘s death, Prince Harry is keeping his late mother’s activism alive — and has an “incredible” gift from her to help him do so.

In the upcoming ITV and HBO documentary, Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy, friends, family and admirers of the late royal speak candidly about her charitable efforts, including Sir Elton John, who says that Diana’s efforts to promote HIV and AIDS awareness live on through her son.

“She had that incredible ability — which knd of inherited — to make people feel at ease and make them feel that everything’s gonna be all right,” John, 70, says in the documentary. “I haven’t experienced many people in my life who have that ability, but she could walk into a room of people and make them feel as if everything was great.”

Diana was an early and very public campaigner for HIV and AIDS awareness and treatment. And, along with John, the documentary features appearances by Diana’s brother Charles Spencer and Rihanna, who took an HIV test alongside Harry in Barbados last December to help break the stigma of getting tested.

In recent years, Harry has championed the fight against the illness. In March, he traveled to Leicester to visit the Leicestershire Aids Support Service, the organization his mother visited just 25 years earlier.

John recalled Diana’s efforts, lamenting the stigma surrounding HIV and AIDS in past decades.

“It was considered to be a gay disease,” John says of the illness. “For someone who was within the Royal Family and who was a woman, and who was straight, to have someone care from the other side, was an incredible gift.”

Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy will air Monday, August 31, at  10 p.m. on HBO in the U.S. and 9 p.m. in the U.K. on ITV.

The show is one of several commemorations of the Princess in print and on film. PEOPLE and ABC have partnered in a two-night television event The Story of Diana, airing on Aug. 9 and 10 at 9 p.m. ET.

Harry Shares His Regret Over Last Phone Call with Mom Diana: ‘If I’d Known … the Things I Would Have Said to Her’

Prince William and Prince Harry have shared poignant new photographs from their personal collection of their late mother, Princess Diana, as they open up about her life and legacy in a new documentary.

The deeply personal photos come from albums that the princes have been looking over in memory of the mother as part of ITV’s Our Mother Diana: Her Life and Legacy special, which airs in the U.K. on Monday. August 31 will mark the 20th anniversary of Diana’s death in a Paris car crash.

The documentary features appearances by Diana’s brother Charles Spencer, Elton John and Rihanna, who took an HIV test alongside Harry in Barbados last December to help break the stigma of getting tested. Diana was an early and very public campaigner for HIV and AIDS awareness and treatment.

The princes, who say that they will not speak out at length about her like this again, also talk movingly about the fact that their last phone call from her – on the day she died – was so short. Being such young boys, aged 15 and 12 respectively, they were keen to get to back to playing with their cousins at the Queen’s Scottish retreat, Balmoral. “And if I’d known that that was the last time I was going to speak to my mother the things that I would – the things I would have said to her,” Harry says in the documentary.

While discussing the documentary with reporters — including PEOPLE — at a meeting in Kensington Palace, William said, “This is a tribute from her sons to her.” He added that standing before a group about to watch the documentary was “possibly the most nervous I’ve ever been.”

“It’s one thing doing a documentary like this and it’s another thing standing front of all of you guys and explaining about something very personal to you,” he said. “Nevertheless, I think it’s very important that I’m here to do that.”

And William – who like Harry finds talking about his mother so intensely and publicly difficult — vowed, “We won’t speak as openly and as publicly about her again.”

He added, “We feel hopefully this film will provide the other side from her close family friends that you might not have heard from before, from those who knew her best, and from those who want to protect her memory and want to remind people of the person that she was: The warmth, the humor, and what she was like as a mother, which probably hasn’t come across before in many other pieces from other people.”

Harry also revealed he has only cried tears of grief twice – at her graveside at Althorp on September 6, 1997, and since then “maybe, maybe once. ”

“So there’s, you know, there’s a lot of — there’s a lot of grief that still needs to be let out.”

Harry added “There’s not a day that William and I don’t wish that she was still around, and we wonder what kind of a mother she would be now, and what kind of a public role she would have, and what a difference she would be making.”

William and Harry Recreate Princess Diana’s Desk — Featuring Cassette Tapes of Her Favorite Pop Stars

Princess Diana had an impressive soundtrack of pop and classical greats of the ’80s and ’90s at her fingertips as she worked from her desk at home.

George Michael, Elton John’s Greatest Hits Volume II, Diana Ross (One Woman, The Ultimate Collection), Dancing on the Ceiling by Lionel Richie, Verdi’s Il Trovatore (featuring her signature — perhaps to ward off anyone taking it!) and Carreras, Domingo and Pavarotti are kept in a case full of old cassette tapes that Prince William and Prince Harry have added to a display at Buckingham Palace.

Diana’s sons picked out the special objects on her desk for an exhibit to mark the 20th anniversary of her death next month. It is the first time that there has been a Diana-centric element in the palace’s annual summer tour, which opens July 22. Tickets are available via the Royal Collection site.

“I think people will find it personal and emotive,” a spokeswoman at Royal Collection Trust said of the poignant choices, that include a set of photos of Diana’s sons.

The exhibit, which also features a pair of her ballet shoes (signifying Diana’s love for dancing) and her old school trunk inscribed with “D Spencer” are chosen to sit alongside her desk that the curators at the palace have recreated.

Also on her desk is a Cartier silver desk calendar, engraved with the birthdays of herself, Prince Charles and their sons, and their wedding anniversary. It was a gift to her by President Ronald Reagan and his wife Nancy Reagan when Diana and Charles visited Washington, D.C., in November 1985.

“The Princess loved music and constantly listened to the radio, records and tapes when working at her desk,” the curators at the Royal Collection said. “Many of the objects shown on and around her desk have been selected by The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry to reflect their mother’s commitment to duty and their personal memories of her.” to reflect their mother’s commitment to duty and their personal memories of her.”

The exhibit is one of several commemorations taking place as the anniversary of Diana’s death on August 31 nears. The princes have also commissioned a sculpture of her in the gardens of Kensington Palace.

PEOPLE has teamed with ABC to create a two-night television event, The Story of Diana, which airs on August 9 and 10.
