This is why Archie Harrison has a different surname to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

Words by Maisie Bovingdon 

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry welcomed their first child, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, into the world on May 6, but the family of three made their public appearance as a trio, and announced their son’s name, two days later.

There has been a lot of speculation over baby Sussex’s name, with some saying Archie is an acronym of Meghan’s real name Rachel, while Harrison is meant to stand for Harry’s son.

But then there’s the question surrounding Archie’s surname.  Prior to Archie’s birth Sussex Royal’s Instagram account addressed him as ‘Baby Sussex’, and it was believed that would be the surname he would take. So why is he a Mountbatten-Windsor and not Sussex?

Answer: It’s to do with his royal title.

Royal tradition has seen Prince Harry and Prince William take the title of their father’s Dukedom Wales when they were children, although this changed for William and his children when he married Kate Middleton, and the entire family took the surname Cambridge after his Dukedom.

Archie – who is seventh in line to take the throne – bucked the trend because he doesn’t have a royal title of His Royal Highness, which means he has to take the royal family’s official surname of Mountbatten-Windsor, the Mirror Online has reported.

The Queen could have given Archie the three initials HRH to add to his name, but didn’t, and if a royal descendant doesn’t take His or Her Royal Highness automatically use Mountbatten-Windsor.

While Harry has kept the surname Sussex, which the former Suits actress has also adopted, Meghan is still known by her maiden name Markle.

Glad we cleared that up!

Prince Harry shares his ultimate parenting tips days after the birth of royal baby Archie

Words by Maisie Bovingdon 

Prince Harry and wife Meghan Markle welcomed their first child, Archie Harrison Mounbatten-Windsor, into the world earlier this week.

Just days after the Duchess of Sussex gave birth, Harry jetted to the Netherlands for an engagement at The Hague for the Invictus Games 2020.

During his visit Harry had a heart to heart with former soldier Dennis van der Stroon, who has his sights set on competing in the games, about fatherhood.

Dennis recalled his conversation with the 34-year-old royal to Hello! magazine: ‘We talked about how my wife, Mireille, is 20 weeks pregnant with our first child, a girl, and he told me how special it was that his son has just been born.

‘Above all he said he was just amazed by the miracles in the world, and how his child has made a lot of people happy.

‘But he also told me not to make too many plans and that there’s no way you can plan for when the baby arrives.’

Harry has revealed his four-year-old son is ‘very quiet’.

Dennis added: ‘He also told me he’s really happy that his son is so far very quiet.’

The pair continued to bond over fatherhood, and losing a parent.  During the heart to heart Harry admitted he doesn’t feel ‘so alone’ when he speaks to other people who have loved and lost a close one.

Dennis continued: ‘Harry said missing a mother is like missing some kind of security, how you need that as a son and it falls away when you lose your mother. He said he meets a lot of people in his work who have lost a mother, father, sister, brother or relatives and when he hears their story, as he heard my story, he said he doesn’t feel so alone.’

We can’t deal.

Just two days old, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor made his television debut swaddled in white cloth and matching his mother, Meghan Markle.

The new parent, also clad in cream, wore a sleeveless trench dress for the Windsor Castle press conference. Though the midi was first reported to be from Givenchy, the house that made Markle’s wedding dress, it was later clarified to come courtesy of London-based menswear designer Grace Wales Bonner.

Unlike her royal predecessors Kate Middleton and Lady Diana, who opted for bright, patterned frocks during their first post-birth appearances, Markle chose a pristine, clear eggshell hue.

Here are all the ways Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have broken protocol with their royal baby

From water births to baby showers…

REX

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expecting their first child together any day now, with the royal baby due this month.

The future arrival, referred to as the couple’s ‘little bump’, is already one of the most talked-about people in the world, with the public already speculating about everything from baby name predictions and god parent choices to nursery colour palettes.

However, Baby Sussex is most talked about for having rule-breaking parents, with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex proving unafraid to rip up the royal rulebook for the sake of their little one.

Here are all the ways Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are breaking protocol with the royal baby…

The privacy:

While most royal couples have held a sense of privacy when it has come to royal babies, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have broken tradition in how guarded they have been – and understandably so.

The royal couple have faced more online backlash and speculation than most, with Meghan in particular getting vilified during her pregnancy. It was hardly surprising therefore when the royal family announced that the couple would be celebrating in private.

‘Their Royal Highnesses have taken a personal decision to keep the plans around the arrival of their baby private,’ the statement read. ‘The Duke and Duchess look forward to sharing the exciting news with everyone once they have had an opportunity to celebrate privately as a new family.’

prince harry meghan markle

REX

The baby shower:

Meghan Markle’s New York baby shower made news for various reasons – partially for the star-studded guest list, but mostly for its break from royal tradition.

The 37-year-old’s ‘extravagant’ baby shower saw A-listers from Serena Williams to Amal Clooney congregate in The Mark hotel’s penthouse suite, something that the Queen was rumoured to have disapproved of. But while sources have insisted that the monarch wasn’t fazed, royal expert Victoria Arbiter among others explained that baby showers are ‘inappropriate’ for members of ‘The Firm’.

The babymoon:

It’s hardly surprising that a lot of the couple’s breaks from tradition are americanisms, with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex following a modern US trend this year, taking a babymoon before their arrival.

The couple reportedly had a lavish three-night babymoon at Hampshire’s Heckfield Place, spending some quality time together in the Georgian manor house.

‘Meghan is only a couple of weeks away from giving birth, so Harry really wanted to treat her,’ a friend told The Sun, going on to explain that their break was filled with eating Michelin starred food as a two and going for long walks through the 400 surrounding acres.

REX

The delivery team:

It has been reported that the former Suits actress is breaking tradition with her delivery team, opting out of using the Queen’s doctors, not wanting ‘men in suits’ delivering her baby, with royal gynaecologists, Alan Farthing and Guy Thorpe-Beeston having to take a backseat.

‘Meghan said she doesn’t want the men in suits. She was adamant that she wanted her own people,’ a source told the Daily Mail. ‘It did leave a few of us a little baffled’. Another source reportedly added: ‘It is slightly surprising. These people are the best of the best, and when it comes down to it, their role would actually be very limited in the birth itself, assuming all goes to plan.’

Meghan is reportedly opting out of having the two male gynaecologists leading her delivery team, apparently going for a woman instead, though it is not known who she is.

The home birth:

While home births used to be the royal tradition, the protocol for the past four decades has been a hospital birth, with Princess Diana starting the current tradition of posing for a photo post-birth on the Lindo Wing steps of the hospital.

Meghan however is set to break the tradition, with sources close to Vanity Fair claiming that the Duchess of Sussex is considering a home birth. And that’s not all, with Meghan said to be additionally considering a natural birth, with her mother Doria Ragland said to be involved in the birthing plan.

REX

The water birth:

Not only is Meghan apparently parting with four decades of tradition to have the royal baby at home, it has also been reported that she is planning on having a water birth, which would be a royal first.

‘Obviously Meg’s into all the homeopathy, so none of us were shocked when we found out she’d been talking about a water birth,’ a friend of Prince Harry reportedly told the Daily Star Sunday. ‘Apparently she wants it to be as natural as possible: no drugs, no caesareans and so on. It’s the next logical step from all her yoga, meditation and so on. Obviously when she goes into labour she might end up, medically speaking, having to go the more conventional route. But for now a water birth is absolutely her plan, is what they’re saying.’

The paternity leave:

Prince Harry is breaking tradition once more, following a modern post-birth approach rather than a traditional royal one. The Duke of Sussex is reportedly taking paternity leave to support his wife and spend some quality time with his newborn.

‘He doesn’t need to take paternity leave because he doesn’t work in the way most people do,’ a friend of Prince Harry’s told The Express. ‘But he thinks it’s a very modern Dad thing to do.’

REX

The manny:

While nannies are customary for royal babies, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are apparently going against tradition with their choices. According to The Express, the royal couple are taking a ‘modern American approach’ to the nanny they hire, reportedly opting for a ‘manny‘.

‘Hiring a “manny” is far more common in the U.S. — a nation that Meghan is more in tune with — than in the U.K. She’s keen to introduce the royal family to what she considers a more enlightened, modern American approach,’ a source explained. ‘[Prince Harry] and Meghan have discussed nannies and both have an open mind to a male nanny. They will definitely try to shortlist one.’

Congratulations again to these two royal rule breakers!

Jackée Harry Says Eartha Kitt Once “Slapped The F%#! Outta Me” Over A Man

Jackée Harry and Eartha Kitt

Archive this one in little-known and very crazy Hollywood history facts.

Jackée Harry, former star of 227, revealed on Twitter on Wednesday that she had a less than pleasant encounter at one time with the late acting and singing legend, Eartha Kitt. She didn’t say when, but shared that the greatest Catwoman of all pulled out her claws, or make that her hand, and slapped Harry. It was all over a cheating man.

She recounted the story after writer Michael Segalov asked people what their most surreal encounter was with someone famous. Harry said Kitt “slapped the f%#!” out of her because she was messing around with Kitt’s man, not knowing that the guy and the icon were in a relationship:

We can’t imagine how crazy of a scene that was, but we are glad that Harry didn’t mind sharing.

Interesting enough, Kitt had her own less than pleasant encounter with another woman, pertaining to a man. She said in historian Donald Bogle’s book, Bright Boulevards, Bold Dreams, that Nat King Cole’s wife, Maria (Natalie’s mother), wrote her a letter telling her to watch herself with Nat. Even though he and Kitt weren’t involved, she claims he sent her some flowers after they wrapped up working on the film St. Louis Blues. The note with the flowers read, “Handy misses Go-Go,” which were the names of their characters. She sent a note back reading “Go-Go also misses Handy.” Maria caught wind of it and made her displeasure with their friendship known.

“She [Maria] sent me a beaded cashmere sweater as a thank-you gift with a note pinned to it that must have poisoned the pen that wrote it,” Kitt said in the book. According to her, the note read, “I don’t know if you think of yourself as some kind of temptress siren but the film is over and Go-Go (you) is gone, let’s leave it that way.”

It sounds like Kitt certainly heeded that warning, and Harry likely learned a lesson from the star’s hard hand…

This might be how Prince Harry and Meghan Markle introduce their baby to the world

With the imminent arrival of the royal baby, all eyes are on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry right now, so much so that they just broke this world record. And it’s already clear the couple will do things a little differently to Kate and William.

To start off, their baby announcement will be very millenial, and the Duchess of Sussex apparently won’t pose outside the hospital with her newborn, like the Duchess of Cambridge did with Princes George and Louis and Princess Charlotte.

Instead, she and Harry are said to be taking a leaf out of the Swedish royal family’s book, by planning to give the world its first sight of their offspring… from the comfort of their own home.

The Swedish family often shares pictures on social media of their children at home, and it’s believe Meghan and Harry will use their new Instagram account to introduce their baby to the world.

As the baby isn’t a direct heir to the throne, there isn’t as much pressure for the couple to follow traditions, and this will give the happy parents a bit of time to recover at home before facing the public.

Either way, we can’t wait.

Stephen Colbert uses strong Harry Potter comparison to describe the full Mueller report

TwitterFacebook

Attorney General William Barr’s four-page summary of Robert Mueller’s almost two-year investigation is a little too short for many, as the House Judiciary Committee approved a subpoena to obtain the full report on Wednesday.

It’s hard to relate to exactly how long that kind of read is, but The Late Show host Stephen Colbert put it into terms we’d understand.

“Barr’s summary was not quite four pages long, while the full Mueller report is nearly 400 pages. That’s Harry Potter length,” he quipped in Wednesday night’s monologue.

“Everybody wants to read Donny Trump and the Idiot of Azkaban! And the Goblet of Covfefe.”  Read more…

The Queen apparently shut down Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s plan to be ‘entirely independent’

Wait, what?

A lot has changed in the royal family over the past year, with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle undoubtedly going through the biggest transition of everyone.

The royal couple married in May last year, gained the title of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, and now with a royal baby on the way they have relocated, splitting from their shared household in Kensington Palace with the Cambridges and moving to Windsor to create their own set-up in Frogmore Cottage.

So began the rumours of a feud between Meghan and Kate and the fears that this could be the end of the Fab Four, something that insiders were quick to point out had been blown way out of proportion.

REX

The news that emerged this week has only confirmed that the decision has nothing to do with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and more to do with the Sussex family’s desire to be ‘entirely independent’ in general.

Yes, really. According to Roya Nikkhah, royal correspondent at The Sunday Times, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wanted to be ‘entirely independent’ from Buckingham Palace – something that was reportedly vetoed by the Queen.

‘They wanted their household to be entirely independent of Buckingham Palace, but were told “no”,’ a royal source told Roya. ‘There is an institutional structure that doesn’t allow that kind of independence. The feeling is that it’s good to have the Sussexes under the jurisdiction of Buckingham Palace, so they can’t just go off and do their own thing.’

Despite reportedly wanting ‘total royal freedom’, Harry and Meghan’s official office will remain at Buckingham Palace while Frogmore Cottage will be their home.

To be honest with their past busy year and their little bump set to arrive next month, they’ve got enough to deal with!

Meghan and Harry split from Kate and William’s royal household

They’re going their separate ways

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will officially split from Kate Middleton and Prince William to start their own royal household.

Reports that the Sussexes and the Cambridges would go their separate ways first began last year, and now the Queen has agreed that a new household will be created for Meghan and Harry, but the new office of communications staff and courtiers at Buckingham Palace – which includes hiring new private secretaries – won’t be immediate.

The new set-up will be established in the spring, with a senior aide telling Harpers BAZAAR: ‘This isn’t immediate. It will be a step-by-step process.’

A statement from Kensington Palace said: ‘The Queen has agreed to the creation of a new Household for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, following their marriage in May last year.

‘The Household, which will be created with the support of The Queen and The Prince of Wales, will be established in the spring.

‘The Duke of Sussex currently has his own private office, which has been supporting The Duchess since Their Royal Highness’ engagement in November 2017.

‘This long-planned move will ensure that permanent support arrangements for The Duke and Duchess’s work are in place as they start their family and move to their official residence at Frogmore Cottage.’

It comes days after it was announced that Meghan’s assistant personal secretary, Amy Pickerell, has resigned.

At the time, a Kensington Palace source told BAZAAR: ‘Amy is leaving after the arrival of the baby. The Duchess will be very sad to see her go, but is excited for her as Amy has exciting plans ahead including spending some time abroad.

‘They will definitely stay in touch and Amy will be on hand for any advice and help that is needed in the future.’

Prince Harry took his puppy to work and it was the cutest

Adorable.

Just before they announced that they are expecting their first child, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle revealed that they had welcomed a new puppy to their family. The couple already shares Meghan’s Toronto-born Beagle, Guy, but decided to get another pet pooch late last year, and it was reportedly known as the Kensington Palace Labrador until sources claimed that its name is Oz.

However, Meghan and Harry haven’t confirmed the dog’s breed or name, with Harry revealing during a trip to Sussex last year: ‘No one’s even seen our dog!’

Meghan added: ‘I know, and they keep getting her name wrong!’

While the pup hasn’t been spotted out and about in public before, when Harry decided to go to work with a puppy this week it had the whole world wondering if they’d caught the first ever glimpse of their second dog.

The Duke of Sussex was in Birmingham to unveil a new memorial to remember the lives lost during two terrorist attacks in Tunisia that took place in 2015.

Harry arrived in the Midlands via helicopter, and one royal fan captured footage of the dad-to-be alighting the chopper with a puppy in tow. However, considering that he was on official royal duty, the dog wasn’t seen with Harry during the day and was reportedly kept with staff while he was working.

In a video shared on Twitter, the dog can be seen running about – although it hasn’t been confirmed that it’s Meghan and Harry’s puppy, Twitter believes that it’s the very same.

It was initially thought to be Guy, however one user pointed out that Meghan’s Beagle looks a lot older, writing: ‘It’s not guy. Guy is older now. That’s a young dog. I believe it’s a spaniel of some sort – maybe a springer or working cocker from the way it’s running.’

Many think that as it’s not a black Lab as previously reported, that it may not belong to the couple – however, considering they haven’t confirmed any details about their newest pup it could well be.

All we can say is – more pup pics, please.

Harry Hamlin, Lisa Rinna Hit Back at Nicollette Sheridan’s Cheating Denial

Not backing down. Harry Hamlin and his wife, Lisa Rinna, responded to his ex-wife Nicollette Sheridan’s denial that she cheated on him with singer Michael Bolton.

The controversy kicked off on Friday, February 22, when the Desperate Housewives alum referenced a Real Housewives of Beverly Hills clip in which Rinna claimed that Sheridan, who was married to Hamlin from September 1991 to August 1992, hooked up with the singer.

“FAKE NEWS!” Sheridan tweeted on Friday. “Harry and I ended our marriage nose to nose in Canada … Michael was a long time friend that was invited to our wedding … Happy Harry found happiness with housewife @lisarinna.”

The Shooter star, 67, responded to Sheridan, 55, on Saturday, tweeting, “Re Fake News! What’s it called when your wife of one year suddenly goes to be with a pop singer? …two weeks after your mother died?? I did a lotta stuff with my wife ‘nose to nose’ but ending our marriage was not one of them!”

The Melrose Place alum, 55, shared her husband’s tweet, writing, “Sweetie @IamNicollette You’re the gift that keeps on giving!”

Rinna also posted on her Instagram Stories, writing, “My bad, I’m sorry @IamNicollette I forgot to Thank you also. Thank you for f—king Michael Bolton and cheating on Harry while Married.” She added, “I thought I’d take the high road and not tweet this … NAH.”

Bolton, 65, has not publicly responded to the social media storm, and Sheridan hasn’t replied to the message from her ex-husband and his wife.

The Knots Landing alum and the “Missing You Now” singer dated until 1995, then reunited in 2005 and got engaged the following year. They ended their engagement in 2008.

Rinna and Hamlin wed in 1997 and have two daughters, Delilah Belle and Amelia Gray.

These actors have been controversially cast as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

And the internet isn’t happy

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are one of the most talked-about couples in the world, making news this past few months for their upcoming royal arrival, due in April.

But it wasn’t Meghan’s New York baby shower or the rumoured baby names that got the world talking about the royal couple this week.

Instead, it was the upcoming Lifetime TV show about their relationship, Harry & Meghan: Becoming Royal, or rather its casting, that became a talking point.

Credit: REX/Shutterstock

The sequel to last year’s Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance is set to tell the story of the couple’s first year of marriage, ‘pulling back the curtain to reveal the untold joys and challenges of life inside the Royal Family.

‘Beyond blending their families and cultures, Harry and Meghan’s core values are put to the test as they try to find the balance between honouring Royal tradition and staying true to their beliefs.’

But who is set to play the Duke and Duchess of Sussex?

Well, the actors have just been announced and the internet has a lot to say about it.

Meghan Markle is set to be played by Tiffany Marie Smith, known for her roles in Supernatural and Jane the Virgin and Prince Harry is set to be played by Charlie Field, seen before in Genius and Poldark.

‘Let us introduce you to the royal couple,’ Lifetime TV tweeted, before it was met by some controversial comments, mostly complaining that Charlie Field looked nothing like Prince Harry.

‘That doesn’t even look like Prince Harry though,’ one fan tweeted, while another wrote: ‘OMG! It’s worse than when they make a Madame Tussauds wax figure and it looks nothing like the actual person.’

Harry & Meghan: Becoming Royal will debut later this spring on Lifetime and we officially cannot wait.

Why Daniel Radcliffe thinks Harry Potter will get a reboot

Here for it?

So you consider yourself a bit of a Potterhead. You’ve looked into studying Harry Potter law at uni and you’re convinced by this Snape death theory because it all makes so much sense. You also feel pretty smug when you tell people that science has shown people who read Harry Potter are nicer, and you’re the first to know when there’s a HP reunion in real life.

But how do you feel about a Harry Potter reboot?

Considering that they’re now a Christmas telly staple, it feels like we’ve always had the movies in our lives – but it was just nine short years ago that we watched the final instalment.

However, Daniel Radcliffe sounds pretty certain that there’ll be a reboot at some point in the not so distant future.

He told IGN: ‘I’m sure there will be some other version of it; I know I’m not the last Harry Potter I’m gonna see in my lifetime – we’ve already got a few more.

‘It will be interesting to see how long those films stay… it feels like there’s a sacredness around them at the moment, but that’ll go, the shine will wear off at some point… It’ll be interesting if they reboot them and just do the films again or do a series. I’m fascinated to watch.’

New films? A series? We can’t deal.

Daniel also revealed what his fave film is – and it’s not what you’d expect.

He told Wired: ‘I love the last one, but I also really love the fifth, which is not a lot of people’s favourite, I kind of realise.’

So why Order of the Phoenix?

He continued: ‘I love it because of the relationship between Harry and Sirius [Black], and you get a lot of Gary Oldman in that movie.’

Interesting.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have gone millennial with their nursery decor

Royals – they’re just like us!

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are undoubtedly one of the most talked-about couples in the world, and from their sweet PDA to their willingness to break royal protocol, they never fail to make viral news.

The past few months however have been dominated by their future arrival, with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex expecting their first child this Spring, with fans speculating about an ‘April’ due date.

Fans are already making predictions on god parents, names and genders, but it’s the nursery preparations that have got everyone’s attention this week.

Royal watchers have been waitings for details, and finally royal correspondent Katie Nicholl is giving some answers.

‘According to sources who are helping with [their new home] renovations, the nursery itself is going to be very modern,’ Katie reportedly told Entertainment Tonight. ’Don’t expect to see any baby pink or baby blue.’

She continued: ‘Apparently, it’s going to be a monochrome palette — whites and greys, I’m told, will be the colour theme for baby Sussex’s nursery.

‘They’ve decided not to find out the sex,’ she then went on to explain.

This isn’t the first surprising move for the royals with regards to their baby, with Harry and Meghan also reportedly opting against welcoming their new arrival in the traditional Lindo Wing of St Mary’s hospital.

As for the rest of the details around the future royal baby, it looks like we’ll have to wait and see.

Harry Redknapp wins I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here

OHMYGOSSIP — Harry Redknapp has won ‘I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here’.
The former football manager was voted the new King of The Jungle during Sunday night’s (09.12.18) show, with ‘Inbetweeners’ star Emily Atack taking second place.
Speaking after finding out he had won, Harry said: “I’m amazed. I’m amazed I survived three weeks to be honest with you. When I first came in, I looked and I thought, ‘Oh my God, I’m in trouble here.’ I looked at the group and I thought, they don’t really know or are interested in anything I’m interested in. No sport and it was only Nick really who knew a little bit about football. I thought it’s going to be a hard couple of weeks but they just dragged me through it, every one of them. They’re the most lovely people I’ve ever met, the whole group. There wasn’t one person I could ever say one single bad word about. They were amazing. Without them, I would never have survived. They really have helped me. They pulled me up hills, they’ve dragged me through the water. They’ve been pushing me; ‘C’mon Harry get up, you can do it.’”
And Emily – who crowned herself as Jungle Princess – was thrilled to have got so far.
She told hosts Declan Donnelly and Holly Willoughby: “I can’t believe this is happening. I feel like – can I be the Jungle Princess? He’s such a worthy winner and to be alongside him in this final, I’m honoured Mr. Redknapp.”
And Dec had a special thank you for Holly, who stepped in to present the show after Dec’s presenting partner Ant McPartlin would be missing out this year to focus on his recovery.
He told her: “Holly, you’ve been amazing. Thank you so much for everything.”

William, Kate, Harry and Meghan have a royal group chat and we want in

How can we join?

You’re probably not all that surprised to learn that these are the most popular royals. The top spots go to Prince Harry, the Queen herself, and Prince William – but don’t worry, Prince George got a place in the top ten, too (and well deserved, we might add).

So in light of the fact that Harry and William are fan faves, you’ll probably be interested to know that they are besties behind the scenes, too – despite what many of the headlines have suggested over the past few weeks.

The brothers are closer than ever, and they even keep in touch via a group chat. No, really. They’ve got a thread going on.

And as if we needed any more proof that the royals are just like us really, it turns out that the fab four use a family chat to keep up with each other. Apparently, William, Kate, Harry, and Meghan are ‘all on a family text chain,’ according to a source close to the royal family who spoke to Us Weekly.

What do you reckon they talk about? Do they communicate through memes and gifs and emojis? Do they share their thoughts on the latest episode of EastEnders? We need to know.

While it’s all very lovely and we can only imagine what royal lols go on in their private messages, we have one question – why isn’t the Queen invited to get in on the action? She’d be an absolute joker, we imagine. Have you read about her Christmas present rules?

The source also touched on recent reports that there is friction between the Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Sussex, quashing the rumours once and for all.

‘Kate is lovely. She’s British, she’s reserved. You have to break through that armour,’ they told the publication.

‘Kate doesn’t warm up to people too quickly. It takes some time for her to become comfortable and trusting for anyone in the outside world.’

So there you have it.

Daniel Radcliffe explained why he’ll probably never see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Daniel Radcliffe explained why he’ll probably never see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child


Daniel Radcliffe explained why he’ll probably never see <em>Harry Potter and the Cursed Child</em>

In a November 21st appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers, Daniel Radcliffe—aka the OG Boy Who Lived—was asked if he’s ever planning on seeing Harry Potter and the Cursed Child—the play that centers on Harry Potter’s son. And it turns out Radcliffe likely won’t be sitting in the audience any time soon. The actor explained that it’s not that he doesn’t necessarily want to see it; rather, he thinks the whole experience will direct lot of pressure and scrutiny his way.

“I’ve been asked this a lot, and I feel like I always give a really boring, terrible answer,” he told Meyers. “I’m probably not going to see it. I don’t have plans to. Not because I think it would throw me into some existential crisis of like, ‘Oh, is that what happened?’ But more so I just feel like it would not be a relaxing evening in the theater.”

He continued, “I feel like I would be being watched for my reaction. And maybe that is complete conceited and egotistical and people wouldn’t care. But I do feel like if I was just surrounded by Harry Potter fans, it would be a little odd.”

Okay, he’s definitely not wrong. We have a feeling literally every single Harry Potter fan on the planet and their mom would want to know what Radcliffe thought of the stage show, and that definitely does sound stressful. So basically, we get it, dude.

Radcliffe is currently starring in the Broadway comedy The Lifespan of Facts, and you can get tickets now.

All the Harry Potter Easter Eggs We Spotted in ‘The Crimes of Grindelwald’

SPOILER ALERT: The following article contains SPOILERS for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. Proceed at your own risk.

Lovers of franchises know that they’re always packed with Easter Eggs, references and callbacks for eagle-eyed fans to hunt out. And Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts is no different. We took our magnifying glass to the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them sequel, The Crimes of Grindelwald, and rounded up all the Easter Eggs we spotted, while also getting the cast to weigh in. You can watch them discuss their favourites in the video above.

Thestrals

You might have recognised the creatures at the start of the film pulling the carriage meant to transfer Grindelwald from his cell at the American Ministry of Magic. They’re Thestrals. We first encounter Thestrals in The Goblet of Fire when Harry Potter first sees them after witnessing Cedric Diggory’s death. Luna Lovegood explains to Harry that only people who have been touched by death are able to see them – the skeletal bat-like horses remain invisible to those who have never been affected by death, hence Ron being unable to see them at that moment. The Thestrals Harry sees – and later rides on – are Hogwarts’ own herd, which Hagrid believes are the only trained large group of Thestrals in Britain.

The Elder Wand


Abus Dumbledore with the Elder Wand.

Wand aficionados will recognise Grindelwald’s magical instrument as the Elder Wand that makes up one of the three Deathly Hallows, so critical to the final two Harry Potter films. The wand was coveted by Voldemort not only because it was meant to be the most powerful wand in existence, but also because possessing it alongside the other two Deathly Hallows (the Resurrection Stone and the Cloak of Invisibility) gave the bearer power over death, according to the Tale of the Three Brothers. Interestingly, the Elder Wand’s core is made up of thestral tail-hair. Grindelwald came to be in possession of it after stealing it from its previous owner, wandmaker Mykew Gregorovitch. At the end of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Harry ends up snapping it in two and throwing it over the Hogwarts viaduct. And that was the end of that.

Interestingly, the symbol for the Deathly Hallows is integral to The Crimes of Grindelwald — and in the film’s logo, the different elements of the symbol are reflected, with the ‘I’ of Grindelwald forming the Elder Wand, and the ‘G’ and ‘A’ of his name taking the shape of the symbols of the other two.

Nagini


FANTASTIC BEASTS 2
Nagini with Credence.

We knew of Nagini’s appearance in the film way before The Crimes of Grindelwald hit screens. But we’re looking forward to seeing how her story unfolds as the film series continues. Nagini was Voldemort’s snake, and also a Horcrux containing a piece of the Dark Lord’s soul. Here, we see her in human form, played by Claudia Kim, and watch her transform into a snake at will. She’ll later become trapped inside her snake body.

Kappa at the Circus Arcanus

One of the animals on show at the circus is a Kappa. Professor Lupin taught the kids at Hogwarts about Kappas in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.

A Familiar Institution

Every Potterhead’s favourite school of witchcraft and wizardry, Hogwarts makes a welcome appearance in Fantastic Beasts 2. Both in the 1927 present and also via flashback whisking us back to Newt Scamander and Leta Lestrange’s schooldays, where he was an awkward loner and she was a bullied outcast.

Hedwig’s Theme

As we head to Hogwarts for the first time, we hear the unmistakeable strains of John Williams’ “Hedwig’s Theme” from the Harry Potter films.

Dumbledore Teaching Defence Against the Dark Arts

It’s a cursed role, and teachers of this subject come and go with alarming regularity. Dumbledore always maintained that he taught Transfiguration but here he’s teaching DADA to Newt, Leta and their fellow students.

Boggart Scene

In the class we see Albus taking at Hogwarts, he’s teaching the Riddikulus charm to prepare students for dealing with boggarts, which take the shape of their opponent’s biggest fear. The class, meanwhile, takes almost exactly the same shape as the one Professor Lupin teaches in The Prisoner of Azkaban. The cabinet is the same, the pupils are all lined up similarly, and Leta’s turn mirrors Harry’s in that something genuinely unsettling and pivotal to the story emerges as she faces the boggart. Not only that, but Harry’s boggart takes the form of a dementor, which looks ethereal like a billowing dark shroud, while Leta’s is a similarly eerie floaty white sheet. It’s not until later in the film that we uncover what the image means, although it’s also redolent of the Cloak of Invisibility, one of the three Deathly Hallows.

McLaggen


Harry Potter-Cormac McLaggan
Cormac McLaggan.

You may remember Cormac McLaggan as a contemporary of Harry Potter’s – Quidditch player and one-time courter of Hermione. As Aurors turn up at Hogwarts, Dumbledore is overseeing a dueling club session (remember Gilderoy Lockhart doing the same in The Chamber of Secrets?). Albus refers to one of the students by name – McLaggan – who is probably a relative of Cormac’s. The McLaggans are thought to be an influential wizarding family.

Professor McGonagall

A Professor McGonagall walks the halls of 1927 Hogwarts. It’s a stretch to think it’s Maggie Smith’s Minerva McGonagall because the dates don’t add up, but she could well be a relative.

Whomping Willow

Famous from the Harry Potter films, the Whomping Willow plays a special role in The Crimes of Grindelwald as the location of an adorable flashback moment between Newt and Leta as Hogwarts pupils. It’s when Newt introduces Leta to his Bowtruckle, and it serves to illustrate their intimacy.

Newt + Leta = Severus + Lily

This sweet flashback sequence showing their connection mirrors Snape’s memory of himself with Harry Potter’s mother, Lily, as schoolchildren by the tree, seen in The Deathly Hallows Part 2. The setting looks the same, and Lily is, like Leta, bullied – here by her muggle sister who labels her a freak. Severus, like Newt, is a misfit and like Snape and Lily, Newt and Leta find comfort in their friendship.

The Names on the Hogwarts Desk


FANTASTIC BEASTS 2
We all did it.

When Leta Lestrange returns to Hogwarts, she opens up one of the old wooden desks in the classroom – which is presumably the desk at which she used to sit as a pupil. Scratched on the underside of the lid are the initials ‘L+N’ which she likely engraved during the throes of her young love affair with Newt. But look closely, and you’ll see some other names. One of which is ‘Nigellus’ which may or may not be a reference to Phineas Nigellus Black, former Slytherin headmaster at Hogwarts and Sirius Black’s brother. He died in 1925 at the age of 78 and was also a student at Hogwarts prior to becoming head. Did he scratch his own name under that desk? Or, as the least popular headmaster the school has ever known, could it have been a mischievous student having learned his middle name?

Travers Dynasty

In The Crimes of Grindelwald, Ministry of Magic official Torquil Travers is investigating Albus Dumbledore. It’s possible that he’s a member of the same Travers line that the Death Eater first seen in Order of the Phoenix belongs to. This Travers family is one of the Sacred Twenty-Eight families published in the Pure-Blood Directory in the 1930s. Of which the Rosier family is also one.

Vinda Rosier


Fantastic Beasts-Vinda-Rosier
Poppy Colette Corby-Tuech as Vinda Rosier.

Gellert Grindelwald’s right-hand woman is a mysterious devotee by the name of Vinda Rosier. She presumably belongs to the Rosier bloodline referenced in the Harry Potter series, the most prominent of which was arguably Evan Rosier. Evan was one of Lord Voldemort’s Death Eaters, first mentioned in The Goblet of Fire. He was ultimately killed by Alastor Moody. Both Rosiers could be related to Druella Black (née Rosier), mother to Bellatrix Lestrange, Narcissa Malfoy and Andromeda Tonks. Which suggests we could well bump into Druella at some point in the Fantastic Beasts franchise.

For the Greater Good

Grindelwald says this phrase when demanding the loyalty of his followers, to remind them that their actions are working towards a larger purpose. It was first used in The Deathly Hallows, when Albus Dumbledore’s brother Aberforth is recounting the story of their sister Ariana and Grindelwald’s role in her death. Fans of Edgar Wright’s Cornetto Trilogy, incidentally, will also likely associate it with Hot Fuzz.

Mirror of Erised

We first saw the Mirror of Erised in the first film of the franchise, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Erised is ‘Desire’ spelled backwards, and the mirror, Dumbledore tells a young Potter, “shows the most desperate desire of a person’s heart”. In The Crimes of Grindelwald, when Albus looks into the mirror he sees the blood pact he made years ago with Gellert. We see them cut their hands and touch their bleeding palms together, which creates an ornate vial on a chain. Grindelwald wears this throughout the film until the Niffler swipes it at the end. Dumbledore finally sees Gellert Grindelwald’s present-day form reflected back at him.

Polyjuice Ploy

When Newt needs to slip into the Ministry of Magic unnoticed alongside Tina, he drinks Polyjuice Potion to disguise himself as his brother, head Auror, Theseus. While inside, he’s discovered and the potion wears off. It mirrors a scene in The Deathly Hallows when Harry, Ron and Hermione drink the potion to disguise themselves as officials in order to find Dolores Umbridge and the critical Horcrux locket. Hermione also later uses Polyjuice in The Deathly Hallows Part 2 to adopt the guise of Bellatrix in order to infiltrate her Gringotts vault – again looking for a Horcrux.

Unbreakable Vow

In The Crimes of Grindelwald, Newt and Tina suspect that Yusef Kama – the enigmatic half-brother to Leta Lestrange – has scars on his hand that indicate he’s taken an Unbreakable Vow. In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Snape, working as a spy, makes an Unbreakable Vow with Narcissa Malfoy, overseen by Bellatrix Lestrange, in which he promises to protect Draco in order to allow him to carry out his duty of killing Dumbledore, and take on the task should Draco fail. Snape does end up taking on the task from Draco, but we later find out that it is in collusion with Dumbledore, who is dying from a curse he picked up trying to destroy a Horcrux anyway.

Nicolas Flamel and the Philosopher’s Stone


Fantastic Beasts-Flamel
Nicolas Flamel chats with Jacob.

It’s no secret that the famed Nicolas Flamel appears in The Crimes of Grindelwald, but look closely when he opens his magical cabinet and you’ll see the original Philosopher’s Stone — also known as the Sorcerer’s Stone — from the first Harry Potter movie. The Stone was sought by Voldemort, because it was the key to creating the Elixir of Life which could extend lifespan. And turn any metal into gold, naturally. Interestingly, the heavily made-up Flamel is played by Brontis Jodorowsky, the actor son of highly regarded Chilean director Alejandro Jodorowsky.

Flamel’s Book

In Flamel’s laboratory, we see him communicating with the head of the American magic community via a photograph in a book. Is it the same book that belonged to Credence Barebone’s original guardian, Irma Dugard, that the film makes a point of showing us? If the woman has been in touch with Flamel, a close friend of Albus Dumbledore, what could that mean for the future of the franchise?

Aurelius Connection

In choosing the name of the secret Dumbledore brother, could J.K. Rowling have been paying a subtle tribute to former Albus Dumbledore actor, Richard Harris? When Grindelwald reveals Credence’s true identity at the end, he calls him Aurelius Dumbledore. Richard Harris famously played Marcus Aurelius in Ridley Scott’s Oscar-winning swords-and-sandals epic Gladiator. Harris sadly passed away before he could reprise the role of the Hogwarts headmaster in the third Harry Potter film.

Dittany Dosage

In The Crimes of Grindelwald, Newt uses a substance known as Dittany as a healing treatment for one of his magical creatures. Hermione also used Essence of Dittany on Ron’s splinched arm after they escape the occupied Ministry of Magic in The Deathly Hallows. Dittany is a healing herb that causes fresh skin to grow over a wound.

Lovegood Connections


Fantastic Beasts-Ministry
The ceiling of the French Ministry of Magic.

Look closely at the ornate ceiling inside the French Ministry of Magic. References to magical creatures include ‘Centaur’, ‘Oiseau Tonnerre’, or Thunderbird, and ‘Clabbert’. But you’ll also see ‘Plimpy’ and ‘L’Eruptif’, or Erumpent. When Harry, Ron and Hermione go to the Lovegoods’ home in The Deathly Hallows Part 2, they meet Luna’s father, Xenophilius, who tells them that his daughter is out fishing for Plimpies. He notes that the family has an excellent recipe for freshwater Plimpy soup. Hermione also notices an Erumpent horn hanging on the wall of the Lovegoods’ house.

Nurmengard

At the end of the film, we see Grindelwald holed up in Nurmengard Castle in Austria, where he’s taken both Queenie and Credence. The castle was originally built by Grindelwald as a prison to hold those who oppose him, but it also serves as his base of operations. After he’s defeated in 1945, he winds up being imprisoned at Nurmengard himself — some kind of poetic justice — remaining there until his death in 1998.

‘The Crimes of Grindelwald’ makes a major Harry Potter canon blunder

TwitterFacebook

Critics everywhere have slammed the latest Harry Potter spin-off, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, as there’s an absurd amount of confounding plot crammed into the 134-minute film. 

Yet, the film carries a problematic canonical oversight, too: Minerva McGonagall briefly appears as a young-adult wizarding instructor at Hogwarts in 1927. The trouble is, according to Harry Potter lore, she wouldn’t have even been born at that point.

Fantastic Beasts 2 takes place in 1927 and features a 20-something Minerva McGonagall teaching at Hogwarts. BUT according to Pottermore, Professor McGonagall was born on October 4, 1935 making her a -8 year old Professor. Impressive.

Meghan Markle Cradles Baby Bump as She Meets Members of the Public with Prince Harry in Auckland

The weather finally cleared up for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as they greeted fans in Auckland, New Zealand.

After a busy day that included dedicating an area of native bush to the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy, participating in “welly wanging” contest with local children and visiting a charity that supports children who have a parent in prison, the royal couple met members of the public.

As they interacted with fans, the royal parents-to-be received several gifts from the crowd including an All Blacks — the country’s football team — onesie, a tui bird soft toy and even a rain boot, or a Wellington as locals call the footwear, stuffed with roses.

Meghan, 37, stepped out in a beige Brandon Maxwell dress with matching Stuart Weitzman pumps and a beige Burberry Bishop trench coat.

The dress clung to her baby bump which she cradled as she walked along with Harry, 34,  by her side. For their meet and greet, the prince wore a navy suit with a white button-down shirt underneath.

The duo made sure to talk to as many royal fans as possible — especially the younger members of the crowd.

Meghan invited a little girl through the crowd control fence and was rewarded with a sweet stuffed toy of a native tui bird.

Harry was particularly enamored with a little baby and reached out and gave the child what appeared to be a little tickle.

“Walkabouts,” as the royal meet and greets are commonly referred to, have provided some of Meghan and Harry’s most candid moments of the royal tour. Shortly after arriving to New Zealand, Meghan comforted a sobbing teenage fan by holding her hands.

One young royal fan who was wearing a shirt that read “Girls Can Do Anything” caught Harry’s eye in Sydney — so much that he just had to call his wife over to meet her.

“We feel she looks a bit like you,” a person in the crowd is heard telling Meghan in a video posted by Harry Meghan Updates on Instagram.

The Duchess of Sussex replied, “I was literally about to say the same thing!”

Harry then took a fan’s phone to snap a photo of Meghan with her mini-me —  a rare move for the prince, who usually adheres to the royal protocol of no autographs or selfies.

Earlier in the day, the royal couple bonded with local children from the environmental education group, “Trees of Survival,” and joined the kids for a “welly wanging” contest.

The objective of the game was to throw a Wellington boot — which New Zealanders refer to as “Wellies” — as far as possible. (Wellingtons are equivalent to what Americans call rainboots, Bean Boots, or duck boots.)

The children cheered as Meghan showed off her strength and won the competition, throwing her red-and-white polka-dotted boot approximately a meter away from Harry’s blue boot. For the win, the Duchess was rewarded with a rainboot-shaped trophy.

Adding to the couple’s growing list of baby gifts, Meghan and Harry were also given a small pair of green and white boots for their newest family member.

Later on in the day, the Royals joined New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern in Auckland for a visit to Pillars, a charity that supports children who have a parent in prison by providing special mentoring programs.

Meghan and Harry already had a special connection to the charity: as a wedding present to the couple, the government of New Zealand gifted $ 5,000 to Pillars. During Tuesday’s visit, they met some of the children who directly benefited from the funding.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle broke away from tour for a mini moon

These two!

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle set off on their royal tour this month, with the couple currently on the New Zealand leg of their trip, having already visited Australia, Fiji and the kingdom of Tonga.

But with a jam-packed schedule of official events and appearances, it’s hardly surprising that Harry and Meghan haven’t had much downtime – something they surely need, especially following the news of their future baby, expected in Spring 2019.

It has recently emerged however that the now Duke and Duchess of Sussex did actually escape for a mini moon on their tour and we didn’t even notice.

The royal couple reportedly took some time away during their royal tour of Fiji, escaping for a ‘mini moon’ at the Vatuvara Private Islands Resort on Kaibu Island, before returning to royal duties in Tonga.

Meghan has opened about her pregnancy during the tour, explaining how it has made her feel jet lagged, so here’s hoping she managed to catch up on some sleep!

Luckily, it looks like the mini moon did the trick, with the royal couple seeming relaxed and restored when they arrived in Tonga.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are currently in New Zealand – and people are talking about them more than ever, especially after Harry let his nickname for his future baby slip!

These two!

Here’s hoping they get to have another mini moon soon!

From Meghan staying up late to bake banana bread for their host family to Prince Harry having his beard stroked by a very young fan, these two might have accomplished one of the most successful (and friendly) royal tours ever.

It’s hardly surprising therefore that there is a high demand for the royal couple to visit other countries too, with many questioning when a tour around the United States would take place.

Prince Harry, Duchess Meghan Are Good Sports at Wheelchair Basketball Game in Australia

A vision of good sportsmanship! Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan looked fresh-faced and game ready on Saturday, October 27, during day 12 of their first international tour together.

The pair — who kicked off the royal adventure on October 15 just hours prior to the news that Meghan, 37, is pregnant and expecting her first child with Harry, 34 — got into the spirit of the Invictus Games during a wheelchair basketball game in Sydney, Australia.

The former actress wore a belted maroon peplum top by Scanian Theodore, black Outland pants and black Sarah Flint heels for the occasion. Meanwhile, the prince sported a black Invictus Games shirt and gray pants.

The couple presented each member of the winning Team USA with gold medals after the final match, with the Netherlands coming in second place and England finishing third.

While the duke and duchess sat alongside Prime Minster Scott Morrison and Defense Minister Christopher Pyne at the game, David Beckham, an Invictus Games ambassador, was also spotted taking in the match with his 16-year-old son Romeo. The former soccer pro and Victoria Beckham attended the royals’ May 19 nuptials.

Prince Harry just made a very public speech about Meghan Markle and their baby

And it’s too much!

Ever since Prince Harry showed off his parenting skills, jokily scolding a little boy for pulling his wife’s hair and then catching two-year-old Emily Henson stealing his popcorn at last year’s Invictus Games, fans have been waiting for the 33-year-old Prince to become a father himself.

And now it seems the time is here.

Yes, after tying the knot in May, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced last week that they were expecting a baby, arriving in Spring 2019.

The news broke soon after the royal couple’s arrival in Australia for their royal tour, with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex reportedly telling the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, Prince William and Kate Middleton at Princess Eugenie’s wedding.

Following the official statement by Kensington Palace, the future parents have spoken out about their excitement.

‘Thank you for the welcome you have given Meghan and I over the last few days,’ Prince Harry announced in his speech at the Invictus Games opening ceremony. ‘I have been so proud to be able to introduce my wife to you and we have been so happy to be able to celebrate the personal joy of our newest addition with you all.

Unsurprisingly the comments have set the internet alight with excitement, and it’s not the first comments the couple have made about their future arrival, while on tour.

While visiting a family in Dubbo, New South Wales, Meghan is said to have opened up about her pregnancy with mother Emily Carroll, who has 13-month-old daughter Ruby.

‘Meghan told me that she’s feeling pretty good so far, which is great, and that she’s running on adrenalin,’ Emily explained. ‘She said they’re doing 76 engagements in 16 days, with maybe one rest in the middle.

Emily continued: ‘She’s made for this royal business, isn’t she? They’re both great with kids.’

‘We also genuinely couldn’t think of a better place to announce the, er, upcoming baby,’ Prince Harry said during a speech last week. ‘Whether it’s a boy or a girl. So thank you very, very much.’

These two!

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Make a Quick Outfit Change to Hit the Beach in Australia

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are keeping the beach clean — and looking stylish while doing it!

The couple, who announced Monday that they are expecting their first child, continued the third day of their royal tour by visiting Albert Park Primary School and also the beach in Melbourne, Australia.

Before their final outings of the day, the pair made quick outfit changes from their earlier looks. They did not, however, choose the most practical beach attire.

Meghan, 37, ditched her navy dress and matching suede heels for a black Club Monaco “Miguelina” dress with her trusty black Rothy’s flats — a shoe she has previously switched into during their tour.

She did, however, kept on her Martin Grant trench coat which has been a fashion staple for her during their royal tour.

Meanwhile, Harry, 34, — who matched his wife at their prior events in a navy suit with a white button-down shirt — switched into a pair of black pants and a gray jacket.

The royal ditched his tie and opted to leave his shirt collar buttoned.

The couple first met with student Sustainability Leaders and Waste Warriors at Albert Park Primary School and learned how the sustainability programs are integrated into the curriculum, before being greeted by many of the school’s younger students.

At one stop along the school’s pathway, Harry sweetly asked a group of students — who were lined up outside excitedly squealing, waving, and yelling their names — if this is where they went to school. One child ignored the question and instead, simply told the prince that he resembled their uncle.

Keeping with their sustainable theme, the pair rode public transport to their next stop, hopping on one of Melbourne’s iconic trams for a short ride from the school to South Melbourne Beach.

As they left, onlookers waved from the crowd, while some even stood on top of their roofs across the street to catch a glimpse of the royal couple.

Onboard the tram, the royals interacted with more schoolchildren during the quick ride. A few minutes later, they arrived at the beach where they were welcomed by another large set of excited onlookers.

As they made their way onto the sand, the couple was greeted by volunteers from BeachPatrol and local children from the area for a beach cleanup. The organization dedicates itself to keeping Melbourne’s shores free of litter to reduce the negative impact of litter on the marine environment and food chain as well as provide a safe environment for the public to enjoy their local beach.

During the outing, Harry and Meghan were also introduced to four lifeguards from the beach.

But the couple didn’t stay much longer after that and finally headed back towards land.

After their departure, one teen — who introduced himself as 15-year-old Milo Thompson — said he was especially impressed with the royal couple’s demeanor during his interaction with them on the sand.

“I was expecting to introduce myself and be real proper,” he said of meeting Prince Harry. “But he came and introduced himself and was calm and collected, and paying a lot of attention to us… they’re down-to-earth and fun to be around.”

Earlier in the day, Meghan and Harry met fans in Melbourne, gathered on the grounds of the city’s Royal Botanic Gardens. One lucky young woman even got a giant hug from the prince, causing her to break down in (very happy!) tears.

After greeting fans, Meghan and Harry headed to a reception with local government.

While there, the royal couple was shown several sporting demonstrations, including a student-designed Formula 1 racing project, which gave Meghan a fright during its incredibly loud launch.

“I did not expect that!” she exclaimed of their speedy takeoff while laughing at her own jumpy reaction.

Meanwhile, Harry looked as happy as a child in a toy store, beaming at the cars and laughed at his wife’s startled reaction. “Wasn’t quite expecting that,” he joked to her. Harry even fist-pumped when they were first invited to try the cars.

While the boys showed off their car project, outside the girls showed off their sporting skills. Meghan met with ambassadors from This Girl Can, which is an organization focused on encouraging women to take up sports.

During the outing, Meghan demonstrated her athleticism, tossing around an AFL football and showing off her best hand-passing skills.

They were then treated to a cooking demonstration showcasing native Australian food at a social enterprise restaurant which provides guidance and opportunity to young Aboriginal people who are in need of a fresh start in life.

During the demo led by Executive Chef Greg Hampton, Meghan and Harry were able to taste some fresh herbs from the area.

Tomorrow, the couple will head back to Sydney for the weekend, before making a stop at Frasier Island on Monday.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have received their first baby gift, and it’s very appropriate

You’ll never guess what it is…

Less than 48 hours after the announcement that Meghan Markle is pregnant and the couple have already received a gift for their first child.

Kensington Palace announced on Monday that the baby is due in spring 2019 – although people already reckon they’ve worked out Meghan’s due date.

While the royal family found out the news on Friday, it’s thought that Meghan shared her pregnancy with this person a couple of months before.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex had a jam-packed first day of their royal tour in Sydney, meeting Invictus games representatives as well as visiting a zoo and the Royal Opera House.

At the beginning of the day the pair were presented with a cuddly kangaroo by Australia’s Governor General, Sir Peter Cosgrove, to which Meghan exclaimed, ‘Our first baby gift!’

Later they also received a tiny pair of Ugg boots that we’re sure will come in handy – although Meghan already has a gift for her future daughter, which she’s had for years.

At Taronga Zoo the couple also met a pair of baby koalas that had been named after them in honour of their nuptials, according to The Sun. We’re jealous.

‘We genuinely couldn’t think of a better place to announce the upcoming baby, be it a boy or a girl,’ Harry said of the baby news.

Watch this space for more pictures and updates from Meghan and Harry’s tour as we get them.
