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.

George’s Smile and Charlotte’s Pose Steal the Spotlight in Prince Louis’ Christening Photos

Little scene-stealers Prince George and Princess Charlotte couldn’t help but steal the spotlight in their little brother, Prince Louis’ official christening photos.

In the group shot with all the royal family members, including uncle Prince Harry and aunt Meghan Markle, the typically shy and reserved George flashes a huge smile as he sits on dad Prince William’s lap, while Charlotte sits next to mom Kate Middleton and sweetly gazes at her baby brother.

In the family of five’s solo shot, Charlotte’s cute little pose steals the show. The 3-year-old holds Louis’ christening robe as she poses with her leg to the side in a little ballerina stance.

The portraits, which were released on Sunday, were taken by Matt Holyoak, one of the world’s leading portrait photographers, to take the photos, which were taken in the Morning Room at Clarence House (grandpa Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall‘s official London residence).

Prince Louis Makes First Public Appearance Since His Birth, Surrounded by Royal Family

RITE OF PASSAGE: Prince Louis, the third child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, was baptized on Monday at the Chapel Royal at St. James’s Palace.
The chapel holds tremendous significance for the royal family: Louis’ elder brother Prince George was also christened there, and the chapel was where the late Princess Diana’s body was laid before her funeral.
Members of the royal family congregated at the private ceremony on Monday afternoon including siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall. Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip were not in attendance.

Here’s how Prince Louis’ christening will be very different from George and Charlotte’s

Plus everything else we know so far…

It feels like only yesterday that little Prince Louis was born at the end of April – we’ve already had more big royal baby news since his birth – but his christening is officially in the diary.

Kensington Palace has released a statement with full details of the event (and, more importantly, when exactly we’ll get to see him!).

The christening will take place on Monday the 9th of July in London, at The Chapel Royal in St James’ Palace.

It’s the same venue where Prince George was christened, while Princess Charlotte’s took place at St Mary Magdalene Church on the Queen’s Sandringham estate, Norfolk.

However, there’s one major difference between Prince Louis’ christening and those of his two older siblings.

Both George and Charlotte were christened in the morning, however the newest royal’s won’t take place until four o’clock in the afternoon.

A statement from Kensington palace said: ‘The service will begin at 1600 hours and will last approximately 40 minutes.’

Of course, this is the first time we’ll get to see a glimpse of little Louis, as he wasn’t present at the royal wedding for this reason.

One thing is for sure, the guest list will be a sight to behold. Not only will the newly married Duke and Duchess of Sussex be there, but we bet we’ll get to see a very pregnant Pippa Middleton in tow, too.

We can’t wait.

Tristan Thompson Celebrates Father’s Day with Diamond Necklaces Dedicated to Daughter True and Son Prince

Tristan Thompson is the proud father of True Thompson, 3 months, and Prince Thompson, 18 months — and he’s wearing his pride around his neck thanks to two diamond-and-gold necklaces featuring each of their names.

The new dad of two, who had his second child, True, with Khloé Kardashian in April after welcoming Prince with his ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig, showed off his new bling on Instagram on Father’s Day. Thompson shared a photo of two gold necklaces around what appears to be his neck, with one that reads “TRUE” and one that reads “PRINCE.” Each piece is encrusted with diamonds and includes a chunky curb-style chain.

“My Prince🤴and Princess 👸,” he captioned the photo. “I love you guys so much!!!”

RELATED PHOTOS: Khloe Kardashian Gives a Closer Look at Daughter True’s Pink (But “Not Too Feminine”) Nursery

It’s not immediately clear if the basketball star spent Father’s Day with his daughter. After Kardashian revealed over the weekend that she had returned home to Los Angeles with baby True, the star shared a photo of her daughter seemingly holding Thompson’s finger, captioned “Happy Father’s Day.” However, there’s no word yet on whether Tristan was also in L.A. on Sunday.

“She hasn’t been back to L.A. for several months, so of course she is excited,” a source tells PEOPLE of Kardashian’s return home. “Her sisters and friends decorated her house, and Khloé seems very happy. She can’t wait to show off True to her friends that haven’t met her before. And she can’t wait to spend time with Kris and her sisters.”

And despite the Tristan’s cheating scandal back in April, a source also says Kardshian isn’t letting it phase her right now.

“The Tristan stuff hasn’t seemed to impact her substantially — at least not for now,” the source said. “She is prioritizing, and her priority is True. Whatever else comes next with Tristan, or really anything, she’ll deal with it as it comes, but she will not let anything affect this amazing time with her little girl.”

Here’s how Prince George comforted a crying bridesmaid at the royal wedding

Adorable.

prince george

Prince George really stepped up to the plate on the day of the royal wedding, going beyond his duties as a royal page boy to deal with a crisis outside the chapel.

In an episode of their royals-focused podcast, On Heir, Emily Andrews and Omid Scobie have shared a heartwarming story of how the little prince comforted one of the bridesmaids ahead of the ceremony.

‘Poor Zalie Warren had a bit of a meltdown,’ Andrews said. ‘She’s only two. She started crying when they were waiting for Meghan. It was only a couple of minutes.

‘So Nanny Maria Borrallo kind of looked after her, and George apparently was trying to comfort her as well, which is very sweet.’

Bless him!

George and Charlotte’s nanny, Maria Teresa Turion Borrallo, was on hand on the day to help manage the 10 bridesmaids and page boys, who all posed for official photographs after the ceremony.

Meanwhile, Princess Charlotte also took on a more organisational role when it came to herding up the bridesmaids.

‘There was one [bridesmaid] who wanted to go and she said, “no, you can’t go yet, we have to wait until we are asked,”‘ one wedding guest told People. ‘She was very organised!’

Looks like George and Charlotte have been taught well when it comes to handling public appearances.

Even Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are fans of these best-selling scented candles

Aren’t we all?

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.

Meghan Markle has the sweetest nickname for Prince Harry

This is too much.

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.

Meghan Markle Asks Prince Charles to Walk Her Down Aisle in Absence of Her Dad: ‘It Was Her Wish’

Meghan Markle will walk down the altar with her future father-in-law, Prince Charles.

Kensington Palace announced Friday that Meghan, 36, has asked Charles, 69, to carry out the duty. Meghan had planned on having her father, Thomas Markle, by her side, but she “sadly” confirmed on Thursday that he would not be attending the royal wedding as originally planned.

“Ms. Meghan Markle has asked His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales to accompany her down the aisle of the Quire of St George’s Chapel on her Wedding Day,” the palace statement said. “The Prince of Wales is pleased to be able to welcome Ms. Markle to The Royal Family in this way.”

The royal bride-to-be asked Charles to take over the duty in the last 24 hours, since it was revealed that her father was not able to attend.

“It was Meghan’s wish and she is grateful for the Prince of Wales to be doing it,” a royal source tells PEOPLE.

For the earlier part of the procession through the Nave of St. George’s Chapel, Meghan will be accompanied by her 10-strong squad of bridesmaids and page boys, which means she will walk down the greater part of the aisle without someone by her side.

Don’t miss out! Tune in to Meghan and Harry – a Fairy-Tale Wedding on Saturday, May 19, starting at 6 a.m. ET/ 3 a.m. PT on PeopleTV — now available on PeopleTV.com and on your favorite streaming device.

The Dean of Windsor David Conner will lead the way, followed by Meghan and her little bridal party, which includes Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 3.

A royal source says that it was always part of the “choreography” that the children would be with her for the first section of the walk through the Nave of the chapel, and then her father would take over for the final steps through the Quire (the last section of the church, where the immediate members of the royal family and close relatives will likely be seated). Now, Charles will greet her at the Quire to continue the final portion of her walk to the altar, where Prince Harry will be standing.

On Thursday, Meghan and Harry, 33, took part in a rehearsal with Prince William and Kate Middleton, George, Charlotte and other bridesmaids and page boys.

Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, was also at the rehearsal, where she met William and Kate and their children.

Until earlier this week, the plan was in place for Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle, to walk her down the aisle, Kensington Palace had confirmed on May 4.

It’s the event of the year! Be sure to keep up with all of PEOPLE’s royal wedding coverage and don’t forget to check out everything you need to know about Meghan Markle’s perfect style.

But then on Monday, that plan came to a halt after Thomas told TMZ that he had decided not to attend the wedding after it was revealed that he worked with a paparazzi agency to stage several photoshoots, featuring him reading a book about Great Britain, looking at photos of Meghan and Harry online and being fitted for his wedding outfit. He said that he didn’t want to attend and embarrass Meghan or the royal family. He also said that he had suffered a heart attack the previous week, but had checked out of the hospital in order to attend the wedding.

On Tuesday, Thomas backtracked on his statement and said that he would try to attend the wedding, pending any further medical issues. His change of heart came after Meghan reportedly contacted him and stressed to him how much she wanted him to be there. But then later that day, he said he wouldn’t be able to attend after all, because he needed to have surgery on Wednesday. He told TMZ that the surgery had been successful on Wednesday evening.

Prince Louis, Sister Charlotte Wear Hand-Me-Downs in New Pics

Eagle-eyed royals fans noticed Duchess Kate‘s sentimental touches (and royal re-wears) in the first official photos she and Prince William released of their newborn son, Prince Louis, on Saturday, May 5.

In the two pics taken by the doting mom, Louis, who was born on April 23, is dressed in a knitted white outfit, while his big sister, Princess Charlotte, 3, wears a blue cardigan as she gives him a kiss on the head.

The pictures were reminiscent of the first photos of then-1-month-old Charlotte released by Kensington Palace in June 2015.

In those pics, it was Prince George, 4, who was captured giving his sister a smooch. But in another historic touch, Charlotte is wearing the same white knitted sweater and pants that Louis donned in the pics released on Saturday.

As previously reported, that handmade outfit was from Spanish designer Irulea and was a gift from the royal couple’s Spanish nanny, Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo.

NEVER TOO YOUNG: Newborn Prince Louis made the front page of Sunday newspapers including The Telegraph and The Times of London in a photo shot by his mother, the Duchess of Cambridge, at Kensington Palace.
Kensington Palace shared the first portraits of the little prince with his older sister Charlotte, who celebrated her third birthday on May 2. Prince Louis, who is fifth in line to the throne, was born on April 23 at St. Mary’s Hospital in London.
An avid photographer, the duchess also shot the first portraits of Prince George and Princess Charlotte as well as the siblings’ first day at nursery school.
Kensington Palace tweeted: “Their Royal Highnesses would like to thank members of the public for all of the kind messages they have received following the birth of Prince Louis, and for Princess Charlotte’s third birthday.”
One image was taken on April 26, just days after little Louis was born. He was pictured resting on a white pillow.

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.

Prince William and Kate Middleton Reveal Their Royal Baby Boy’s Name!

Introducing, Prince Louis!

Prince William and Kate Middleton have revealed the name they’ve chosen for their baby boy.

“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to announce that they have named their son Louis Arthur Charles,” Kensington Palace said in a statement Friday. “The baby will be known as His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge.”

While Will and Kate waited a few days before revealing their new baby’s name, that didn’t keep British oddsmakers from making predictions. William also teased his son’s name as he left the hospital. “You’ll find out soon enough,” he said with a smile.

And eagle-eyed fans even spotted a suspicious web page on the royal family’s official website with a URL containing the name Prince Albert (one of the top predictions).

Big brother Prince George was also given a name with special meaning. His full name, George Alexander Louis, was chosen with love and a nod to history.

The name George carries a lot of sentimental meaning to William’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, as it was the name picked by her beloved father when he became King George VI in 1936. Alexander is believed to have been picked by the couple to honor the Queen, whose middle name is Alexandra. Louis is likely a tribute to Prince Philip, whose grandfather was Prince Louis Alexander of Battenberg. Louis is also part of Prince William’s full name of William Arthur Philip Louis. It also has great meaning to William’s own father, Prince Charles, whose uncle and mentor, Earl Louis Mountbatten, was assassinated by the IRA in 1979.

 

When it came to choosing a name for their second-born child, Princess Charlotte, the royal parents paid tribute to William’s late mother, Princess Diana, and the almost 3-year-old princess’s full name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.

Will and Kate represented the baby’s grandfather, Prince Charles, by going for the female version of his name. And they included Princess Diana, which was a popular choice with friends and admirers of her legacy. They also added the ultimate nod to great-granny and reigning monarch Queen Elizabeth II.

The baby prince was born on Monday at 11:01 a.m. at 8lbs, 7oz. Just seven hours after giving birth to her third childKate Middleton appeared (in heels!) on the steps of the Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital on Monday evening with Prince William by her side to introduce their new baby boy to the world.

Kate’s younger sister, Pippa, was one of the royal baby’s first visitors. Pippa, who is reportedly expecting her first child with husband James Matthews, arrived at Kensington Palace just one day after the prince was born.

Carole Middleton arrived at Kensington Palace on Wednesday to meet her newest grandson and to check in on daughter, Kate Middleton.

After the royal baby’s birth, Prince Charles released a humorous statement on behalf of himself and wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

“We are both so pleased at the news,” Charles said in a statement. “It is a great joy to have another grandchild, the only trouble is I don’t know how I am going to keep up with them.”

Queen Elizabeth celebrated the latest addition to her family with a quick horseback ride through the grounds of Windsor Castle, where she is staying with husband Prince Philip, who is still recovering from hip surgery.

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.”

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are set to welcome their third child this month, with the future royal to be the fifth in line to the throne.

But coming behind four-year-old Prince George and two-year-old Princess Charlotte, royal fans are interested to see how the newborn will fit into the family – with the number of family members as well as their descent to the throne seemingly determining how the family position themselves.

Eagle-eyed royal fans have spotted that ‘the Cambridges’ seem to split off when in public, with Princess Charlotte often seen attached to her mother, Kate Middleton, while Prince George is often spotted holding his father Prince William’s hand.

This detail seems to have even extended to official photographs, with the family’s royal portrait showing Charlotte standing in front of Kate and George in front of William.

According to UK parenting expert Jasmine Peters, this is no coincidence, supposedly giving a nod to the Cambridges’ traditional take on family.

‘It is not uncommon to see a father with his son to set the foundation of what his role and responsibilities will be in life with a family,’ Jasmine Peters explained to the Daily Mail. ‘It is often believed that it takes a man to raise a boy to be a man. Yes, it could reflect that Kate and William are traditional, but it also reflects the importance of the bond created between father and son and mother and daughter that they both treasure and hold dearly as responsible and loving parents.’

We’re not sure how feel about this, but we’re certainly looking forward to the Duke and Duchess welcoming their third child.

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!

What will Prince William and Kate Middleton name the royal baby?

Everyone’s placing their bets…

kate middleton wedges

The Duchess of Cambridge’s due date is this month and now the whole world is not-so-patiently awaiting the arrival of Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s third baby – set to become fifth in line to the throne.

The Lindo Wing is ready, with barricades set up outside St. Mary’s Hospital in preparation for the Duke and Duchess’ arrival and their 23-strong royal birthing team is prepped and ready to go. That’s three midwives, two obstetricians, three anaesthesiologists, four surgical staff members, two special care staffers, four paediatricians, one lab technician for blood tests, and three or four managers.

The royal couple is said to be announcing the news that Kate is going into labour on Instagram for baby number 3, so until we get a social media update, royal fans have been busying themselves speculating what will happen after the birth.

Aside from predicting who the couple will appoint their new baby’s god parents (with fans campaigning for Meghan Markle to be god mother), the public’s attention has focused mainly on the royal baby name, with a lot of people placing bets.

What will the new royal baby name be?

We won’t know the new royal baby name until after his or her arrival, but judging by the bookies, there are some top favourites to bet on. It’s hard to know where to put your money yet, as the baby’s gender is still unknown, despite some believing that Prince William may have let the gender slip earlier this week, overheard joking that he wanted to name the baby ‘Jack’ after an Aston Villa player.

According to the multiple sources, the most likely royal baby names are Philip for a boy and a toss up between Mary and Alice for a girl. All the names are traditionally royal, with a number of past Princesses and in some cases Queens bearing the names Alice and Mary, and Philip being a tribute to Prince William’s grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh.

It looks like Prince Philip will be making the royal wedding post-surgery

‘His Royal Highness would like to convey his appreciation for the messages of good wishes he has received’

prince philip

The Duke of Edinburgh was admitted to hospital earlier this month, with the royal family releasing a statement to break the news, explaining that the 96-year-old royal was undergoing surgery.

‘His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh was admitted to King Edward VII Hospital in London this afternoon, for planned surgery on his hip which will take place tomorrow,’ read a statement from Buckingham Palace. ‘Further updates will be issued when appropriate.’

After over a week in King Edward VII’s hospital, Prince Philip was discharged today, waving to the crowds as he was driven away in a Land Rover.

‘His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh left King Edward VII’s Hospital at midday today, following a hip replacement operation last week,’ announced Buckingham Palace in a statement. ‘The Duke will continue his recovery at Windsor.’

The statement continued: ‘His Royal Highness would like to convey his appreciation for the messages of good wishes he has received.’

This is good news for royal fans who were worried that the Duke would not be able to make it to his grandson Prince Harry‘s wedding next month.

Luckily, it looks like Prince Philip will be there in high spirits, recovering in the very wedding venue – Windsor Castle – and expected to use a walking stick or crutches for the royal wedding.

We hope he’s feeling better for the big day!

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.’

‘His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh was admitted to King Edward VII Hospital in London this afternoon, for planned surgery on his hip which will take place tomorrow,’ read a statement from Buckingham Palace. ‘Further updates will be issued when appropriate.’

The news comes amid public fears for the Duke of Edinburgh’s health, prompted by his absence at the Easter service at Windsor, with the Queen attending without her husband, accompanied by some of her grandchildren instead.

Those in attendance included the Princess Royal and Prince Andrew, as well as Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice, Zara Tindall and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle reportedly spending the weekend together alone.

With just over a month until Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding, with the fast-approaching nuptials taking place at Windsor Castle on May 19th, the Duke of Edinburgh has plenty of incentive for a speedy recovery – and everyone is hoping that the 96-year-old will be in good health for the festivities.

‘The Crown’ finds a new Prince Philip in this ‘Outlander’ actor

Out with the old and in with the new: a new Prince Philip just rolled into the royal court, and he’s a very familiar face to Outlander fans.

Tobias Menzies, the talented actor in the Starz show behind both Jack and Frank Randall, joins the Netflix cast of The Crown for its upcoming Season 3. Those familiar with Outlander know that Menzies can really ride the line between a perfect British gentleman, and an abhorrently vindictive human being — which is perfect for Philip’s characterization in this fictionalization of the royal family.

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.

Kate Middleton Is Always There to Support Prince William’s Athletic Pursuits

The 2018 Olympic Winter Games may be over, and the Paralympic Winter Games may have also come to a close in PyeongChang, but Prince William and Kate Middleton haven’t forgotten about their nation’s sports players, popping by London’s Olympic Park on Thursday.

During a visit to a charity called SportsAid that assists young British athletes in ascending to Olympic, Paralympic and other international competitions status, Prince William tried his hand at the game of wheelchair basketball. The Duke of Cambridge was shown the ropes by young rising stars who play wheelchair basketball — and even took a few shots at the hoop himself. When he sank a basket — on his third try — the crowd was enthusiastic in their cheers.

Supporting him from the sidelines was none other than the Duchess of Cambridge, who is eight months pregnant and expecting their third royal baby sometime next month. In fact, this may very well be her final official public appearance before settling down to await the arrival of the new child. SportsAid has been a longtime cause for Princess Kate, as it supports athletes in financing their pursuits.

Wheelchair basketball, which is one of the events of the Summer Paralympic Games, will make be a part of the Commonwealth Games in 2022.

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.

DJ Jazzy Jeff Believes Chance The Rapper Would Be “A Really Good Fresh Prince”

32nd Annual Grammy Awards - Press Room

Source: Ron Galella, Ltd. / Getty

While in Poland for the Red Bull 3Style World Finals, DJ Jazzy Jeff sat down with HipHopDX and discussed his thoughts about the potential of a Fresh Prince of Bel-Air remix.

Jazzy Jeff declared that he believes Chance The Rapper would make a great successor to the Fresh Prince. Will Smith’s right-hand man stated, “Chance is a trailblazer and Will has always been a trailblazer,” Jazzy Jeff said.

Jazzy Jeff referred to Chance’s “light-hearted demeanor” with a “serious side” and how he’s “always smiling” as reasons why he would make a really good Fresh Prince.

The Philadelphia legend went on to praise Chance’s business acumen stating, “And I think for Chance to be as young as he is, to remain independent, to understand just even a little bit about the music industry, I think is great because it’s very easy to fall into those pitfalls. It’s very easy for someone to bring you a suitcase full of money, and it changes your entire perspective instead of realizing, ‘I probably could have 10 suitcases full of money if I just keep my product to myself.’”

Rumors of a Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reboot have stirred up the internet. With this commentary from DJ Jazzy Jeff, the excitement will continue to rise. While we wait for updates, who do you believe would make a good Fresh Prince?

Prince William Hands Richard James a Queen’s Honor

JAMES’ DAY: Savile Row tailor Richard James swung by Buckingham Palace on Friday to collection his Queen’s honor for services to men’s fashion. He received the OBE, or Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, from Prince William, and wore the gold cross-shaped medal on the front pocket of his peacock-blue jacket.
“Prince William was delightful, and he remembered me, which was very sweet,” said James who’d visited Kensington Palace years ago to alter some suits that he’d made for the prince. He didn’t make as much fuss about his own suit. “It’s off the peg,” he said during a celebratory Champagne tea at his store on 29 Savile Row. The soggy snowstorm outside did nothing to dampen the mood inside, as James was pulled in multiple directions by friends and well-wishers.
The past 12 months have been major for James, who last year marked the brand’s 25th anniversary and sold the company to one of his clients, Charles S. Cohen, the American multibillionaire.

This 18-Year-Old Danish Prince Is Officially a Model Now

The runways have been getting the royal treatment as of late. This week, Princess Diana’s niece Lady Kitty of Spencer (along with a slew of other royals) just walked in Dolce & Gabbana’s special eveningwear presentation during Milan Fashion Week. Before Lady Kitty, however, there was Prince Nikolai of Denmark, who made his runway debut during Burberry’s presentation in London—and we have a feeling we’re about to see so much more of him.

Per People, 18-year-old Nikolai, who is actually the eldest son of Prince Joachim and his first wife, Alexandra, Countess of Frederiksborg, has officially signed a contract with Denmark-based agency Scoop Models. A representative for the group also confirmed to Danish magazine Billed Bladet that it was responsible for booking him in the Burberry show.

But wait, there’s more. Scoop Models released the first of Nikolai’s portfolio shots on its Instagram page yesterday, and they are, in short, incredibly dashing. Read on to see the images for yourself.

Prince, Dodge Ram, Protests: Race-related Issues in Spotlight of Super Bowl LII

The use of one of Dr. Martin Luther King’s speeches as a voice-over in the automotive manufacturer’s commercial during Sunday’s Super Bowl game drew swift rebuke from fans of the late civil rights leader on social media.

“I just heard the voice of the famous anti-capitalist Martin Luther King, Jr, preaching a sermon on service, superimposed over the images of white American military personnel on parade in dress uniforms, in order to sell Ram trucks. I understand sports ball is to blame,” said M. Pezzulo in a comment left on the video on YouTube.

 

Many comments on various social media channels also echo the same sentiment, saying it was inappropriate for Dodge to use King’s Drum Major Instinct speech—given in 1968, on greatness and service—to sell cars.


“If you want to be important, wonderful. If you want to be free, wonderful. If you want to be recognized, wonderful. If you want to be great, wonderful. Recognize that he who is greatest among you shall be your servant—that’s a new definition of greatness,” King said as the video depicts fishermen, military, firefighters, football players, and other workers before cutting to shots of Ram’s truck.

The commercial ended with Ram’s tagline, “Built to Serve.”

The King Center said on Twitter that neither the organization nor members of King’s family approved the use of the words or imagery for use in the ad.

Other comments said it was hypocritical of the NFL to allow such an ad while NFL players who kneel during the national anthem all year were heavily criticized as activists staged protests outside the U.S. Bank stadium.

Leaders of the Black Lives Matter movement and a coalition of other groups attempted to shut down several critical transit lines in downtown Minneapolis in order to protest police brutality and racism.

About 100 leaders representing the Movement for Black Lives, Black Lives Matter Network, BYP100, St. Louis Action Council, and the BlackOUT Collective wore t-shirts branded with “You can’t play with Black lives!” locked arms and formed a chain blockade on the tracks of the West Bank station near the U.S. Bank Stadium for about an hour, according to the Star Tribune.

The activists said they are using the moment to call attention to and stand with athletes who have knelt and protested racial injustice and police brutality against African Americans over the past two football seasons.

The City of Minneapolis had banned city residents without Super Bowl tickets from using the public transit—a move activists said primarily affected people of color who rely on it to commute to work.

Seventeen of the protesters who were arrested were later released with a citation according to the Star Tribune.

In a night already filled with controversies, the Pepsi Super Bowl halftime show didn’t disappoint either. While Justine Timberlake’s much-anticipated performance didn’t deliver on the hype according to some comments on Twitter, it was his tribute to Prince that drew ire from the late singer’s fans.

In a 1998 interview with Guitar World Magazine, Prince was asked what he thought about digital editing to “create a situation where you could jam with any artist from the past.”

“That’s the most demonic thing imaginable,” he said. “Everything is as it is, and it should be. If I was meant to jam with Duke Ellington, we would have lived in the same age. That whole virtual reality thing … it really is demonic. And I am not a demon. Also, what they did with that Beatles song (Free as a Bird), manipulating John Lennon’s voice to have him singing from across the grave … that’ll never happen to me. To prevent that kind of thing from happening is another reason why I want artistic control.”

Apparently, Prince George and Princess Charlotte won’t receive most of their Christmas gifts

But there’s actually a lovely reason

princess charlotte

From the editors of LOOK

It looks as though Prince George and Princess Charlotte won’t be getting all of the presents that are sent their way this Christmas.

Nope, Santa hasn’t added them to the Naughty List. But it has been revealed that all of the gifts sent to the young royals from the public – and, as you can imagine, there’s said to be hundreds – are actually going to be passed on to charity.

A source is said to have told US Weekly that the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William are very careful not to spoil their two young children.

‘They’re both extremely careful,’ the source reportedly told the publication. ‘Receiving that many gifts wouldn’t have a good effect on the kids.’

A spokesperson from the Palace also confirmed the news, explaining: ‘Some items will be taken into the home and others stored within the Royal Household.

‘On occasion, and where appropriate, items may be donated to organisations who can make good use of them.’

The statement continued: ‘Their Royal Highnesses are incredibly grateful for the warmth and generosity that has been extended to their children from members of the public.’

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.

We think we might love them a little more now…

Here’s the role Prince George had in his first ever school nativity play

OUR ACTUAL HEARTS

Having started school in September, Prince George has spent the last few months enjoying life as a full-time primary school pupil. And while he may not always want to go to school in the morning, it sounds like he’s settled in just fine.

Prince William has now revealed the role Prince George had in his first ever school nativity, as well as how he got on onstage – and, spoilers, it’ll make your heart hurt a little bit.

During a visit to Media City in Salford earlier today with Kate Middleton, who is expecting their third child in April, William shared the story of George’s newfound career in acting. ‘I went to my boy’s nativity play. It was funny,’ the soon to be dad-of-three told school children.

So which role did the third-in-line to the throne play during St Thomas’s Battersea’s annual nativity?

Tim Rooke/REX/Shutterstock

‘He was a sheep,’ his proud dad told the children.

Awwww. We bet the young royal looked adorable in his nativity costume! Although, you’d think the role of one of the three kings would be more fitting…

George recently wrote a letter to Father Christmas, which was hand delivered to the big guy in red in Finland by his dad. But when it comes to the Christmas gifts he’s asking for, there’s only one thing on his wish list this year – a toy police car.

Who knows, maybe Prince George will pursue a career in the theatre when he grows up before taking to the throne?

Then again, maybe not…

Did Cressida Bonas mean to speak out on the royal engagement or was she just going about her normal social media business?

From the editors of Look
Words by Laura Jane Turner

Following the news that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged, we didn’t think it would take very long for the ‘ex’ chat to start.

Whilst we’re over here revelling in just how cute the royal couple’s first interview together really was, others seem to have been keeping a pretty close eye on one of Prince Harry’s former flame’s Instagram accounts.

The 33-year-old is said to have started dating actress Cressida Bonas back in 2012. According to reports, they were seeing one another for two years, before calling time on their romance in 2014. Yup. Three years ago.

As with anything that involves one of the princes, there was A LOT of interest around the couple at the time. And it seems as though this has resurfaced, as a number of internet users have spotted a ‘cryptic’ post on Cressida’s page.

Posted not-too-long after Heghan made their big announcement, she shared the words: ‘No matter how educated, talented, rich or cool you believe you are, how you treat people ultimately tells it all’.

Nope, we’re not too sure how this could be related to the happy news either. But that didn’t stop many people from drawing conclusions.

Others, however, jumped into the comment box to defend Cressida and the inspirational post (which, you know, is quite a standard thing to post to social media).

‘People are saying this is about someone in particular… but what do people know…’ one wrote.

Another added: ‘It’s very stupid of someone to think that Cressida means Harry with this quote..’

‘Leave her be. If you even took the time to look at her Instagram posts, you’d see she posts quotes a lot. I doubt this has anything to do with recent events…’ said another.

Cressida clearly wasn’t promoting negativity, so we don’t see any reason for anyone else to.

And in the spirit of keeping things happy, we’re going to start getting excited about Harry and Meghan’s first royal outing as a couple.

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.”

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.

Watch Prince William and Great British Bake Off’s Mary Berry in ‘One More Minute’ Video for Grieving Families

Prince William appears in an emotional new video highlighting his support for grieving children and families.

In the video, which was released Friday, the royal dad poignantly pleads for people to “please, take one more minute to support Child Bereavement UK and help to rebuild the lives of bereaved families.”

William was 15 when he lost his mother, Princess Diana, in 1997. Her close friend Julia Samuel, who is the founder patron of the charity, previously told PEOPLE about William’s connection with those who have lost loved ones. “People can see his empathy and his compassion, which is informed by his experience but also by his years as a man,” she said. “They connect to that and find it extremely healing.

“No position protects you against the pain of your loss. That experience when he meets families is present in his face before he even speaks.”

Also included in the new “One More Minute” campaign  is British soccer star Rio Ferdinand and Great British Bake Off star Mary Berry. The TV chef, who lost her 19-year-old son William in a 1989 car crash, says in the short video that if she had one more minute with him she “would thank him for being a brilliant son.”

The charity’s chief executive, Ann Chalmers, says in a statement that the new “One More Minute” campaign “taps into a human truth that will help people to understand the impact of bereavement.”

“The film touches on the longing that many bereaved families tell us they have, to be able to have more time with the person who has died. In our 23 years experience of supporting children, young people and families, this is something that is commonly expressed and that many people will relate to.

“Our vision is for all families to have access to the support they need when a child grieves and when a child dies, and our One More Minute campaign gives us the opportunity to spread the word so that families are aware that bereavement support is available through organizations like ours.”

The 40- and 60- second ads will air across several TV channels in the U.K. beginning Friday.

Prince Heirs Upset Over Music Removal

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Two sisters and heirs of the late rock superstar Prince said Wednesday they’re angered that the contents of his vault, including master tapes of unreleased music, have been removed from his Paisley Park studio complex and shipped to California.

Sharon and Norrine Nelson, Prince’s half-sisters, told The Associated Press they are prepared to take legal action to bring the music back to Minnesota. The company running the estate, Comerica Bank & Trust, said the recordings are safe at a reputable storage company in Los Angeles.

“We want the music back home in Paisley Park where it belongs,” Sharon Nelson said.

Norrine Nelson called it “extraordinary and unconscionable.”

The recordings are regarded as among the most valuable pieces of an estate that court papers have suggested is worth around $ 200 million.

Sharon Nelson said she was told Sept. 29 by a “Paisley Park representative,” whom she wouldn’t identify, that around four trucks pulled up to the studio-turned-museum in the Minneapolis suburb of Chanhassen in early September and removed the contents of the vault.

“It’s just as though Prince passed away again,” she said. “That’s how I felt. I was really devastated by that.”

Norrine Nelson said the music had been safe in Minnesota for more than 40 years and would be again if it’s returned.

The sisters said Comerica, which is serving as the personal representative, or executor, of Prince’s estate, hasn’t told them exactly where the music was taken or why. They said they believe Comerica was obligated to notify them and give them a say under orders earlier this year by Carver County District Judge Kevin Eide, who is overseeing the estate case.

Comerica defended its decision in a statement.

“In an effort to ensure the preservation of Prince’s audio and visual content, Comerica selected the premier entertainment storage and archive company, Iron Mountain Entertainment Services,” the statement said. “On four separate occasions, Comerica discussed the process with the heirs and any suggestion otherwise is not accurate.”

Prince left no will when he died in April 2016 of an accidental overdose of painkillers. The judge this May declared Prince’s six surviving siblings his heirs, but they’ve split into two camps during the legal wrangling. Sharon and Norrine Nelson and their brother, John R. Nelson, are on one side and Prince’s full sister, Tyka Nelson, and his half-brothers Omarr Baker and Alfred Jackson on the other. An attorney for Tyka Nelson and Baker did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

Eide’s orders putting Comerica in charge give the company considerable authority over how to run the estate and exploit its assets to benefit the heirs, and don’t require it to notify or seek approval from them for routine matters. But one order does require Comerica to give them 14 business days of notice before entering into transactions worth more than $ 2 million to give them a chance to object. The sisters said they believe that language should apply to such a major step as moving the music out of Prince’s vault.

If the reason for moving the tapes was to put them closer to the recording industry to prepare for more releases of Prince music, the sisters said there was no need. They pointed out that Prince’s studios at Paisley Park remain state-of-the art.

But Comerica said the recordings are safer with Iron Mountain.

“After reviewing the storage conditions at Paisley Park and out of concern regarding the consequences of a fire or other loss at the facility, Comerica determined that it was necessary to transfer the audio and visual content to a secure location where all of the original content could be securely stored and digitized as a safeguard against the destruction or loss of any original content,” the company said.

Appeals Court Tosses Two More Would Be Heirs To Prince Estate

The Minnesota Court of Appeals has ruled that two descendants of a former security chief at Paisley Park who Prince reportedly regarded as a brother are not entitled to any part of the Purple One’s estate.

A three-judge panel on Monday said a lower court ruled correctly when it excluded Brianna Nelson and her niece, Victoria Nelson, as heirs, according to Page Six. They’re the daughter and granddaughter, respectively, of the late Duane Nelson Sr.

While they’ve acknowledged Duane was not a biological relative of Prince, who died without a will, they claimed Prince’s father raised Duane as his son anyway.

The Minnesota Supreme Court rejected five other would-be Prince heirs last week. Darcell Gresham Johnston, Loya Janel Wilson, Loyal James Gresham III, Orrine Gresham and Venita Jackson Leverette had all claimed that Nelson wasn’t really Prince’s father. They claimed they were Prince’s half-siblings through other men.

The five were not allowed to undergo genetic testing to try to prove it. Carver County District Judge Kevin Eide ruled earlier that John L. Nelson and Mattie Shaw were legally presumed to be Prince’s parents since they were married when he was born.

The appeals panel used the Supreme Court’s analysis of Minnesota parentage law in finding that Brianna and Victoria Nelson are not entitled to inherit from Prince’s estate either.
