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.

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!

Your complete guide to Royal baby fashion

Duke and Duchess of Cambridge iPads

With the new Royal baby set to be born any day now, we can imagine the Duchess of Cambridge has already stocked up on lots of cute children’s clothes, and there’s no doubt she will be returning to some of her favourite brands that she’s shopped for Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

Kate has famously always opted for traditional clothes, including lots of shorts for Prince George (there is a good reason for both of these, if you follow those links), and the general public loves it, with many items selling out as soon as the Royal children wear them (what Kate effect?).

So here’s your ultimate guide of the baby and children’s fashion brands Kate and William love the most, and where you can shop them.

G.H. Hurt & Son

The family owned brand saw a huge spike in visits to their site (and by huge, we mean 100,000 in less than 24 hours) when Princess Charlotte was presented to the world outside the Lindo Wing, swaddled in its traditional knitted shawl.

Who can forget THAT picture of Prince George in his toy soldier tank top for his last official Christmas portrait before the arrival of Princess Charlotte (he was 17 months at the time)? The tank top was possibly one of the most popular Cath Kidston items ever, and has been re-issued in one form or other ever since.

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.

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air helped me find freedom in solitude and fashion

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air helped me find freedom in solitude and fashion


<em>The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air</em> helped me find freedom in solitude and fashion

February is Black History Month. Here, an HG contributor celebrates The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, one of the most prominent Black sitcoms of the ’90s, for how it made her a free spirit in her career, her style, and her way of life.

From the moment Will Smith stepped out of the yellow taxi cab and entered his new life in Bel-Air, it was obvious his transition would be anything but smooth sailing. With the exception of his younger cousin Ashley and his Aunt Vivian, no one seemed to embrace his colorful personality. The rest of his family didn’t understand him or the world he came from. In all honesty, they didn’t want to try to understand.

In the very first episode of the series, we already notice that Will speaks and dresses differently than everyone else. Soon, we also learn that he has a different perspective and different interests from almost everyone he meets in Bel-Air, too.

Will’s culture shock was essentially a reflection of my whole childhood.

While I was never uprooted from my urban, predominantly Black N.Y.C. neighborhood to live with my rich uncle in a predominantly white neighborhood, I always felt a deep connection to the struggles that Will encountered. He constantly tried to stay true to his identity while battling the expectations people had set for him based on his background. Within my own peer group,  I never really found my place. Then I enrolled in a predominantly white high school, and my struggle to find friends worsened.

I was always stuck somewhere between fitting in and standing out. And I hadn’t yet accepted that standing out always felt much more natural to me.


For the majority of my childhood I felt a dire need to do what everyone else was doing. Most children found pleasure in joining cliques and participating in “cool” extracurricular activities. I preferred being alone in a classroom during lunch and recess so I could listen to music. Time to myself was more important to me than time spent trying to fit in with others. Most girls danced and jumped Double Dutch after school, but I loved ceramics classes and poetry slams. I once joined the school dance team just to prove to myself that I could dance as well as my classmates and so that my parents would be happy—they always wanted me to do things they believed other girls my age should be doing.

But I had my own plans.

In the episode “Bang The Drum, Ashley,” Will’s penchant for self-expression quickly rubs off on his impressionable young cousin.

Ashley, the youngest member of the Banks clan, is the first person in the family with whom he truly bonds. Not long after meeting Will, she shares that she is unhappy with how her parents control her free time. Ashley has a packed schedule of extracurricular activities from violin lessons to tennis matches, and plenty of other activities that most 13-year-olds wouldn’t find remotely interesting. Will introduces her to the activities he enjoys, like rapping and playing the drums.

While Ashley doesn’t completely fall in love with the drums, she learns a vital lesson. For the first time in her life, she is able to tell her parents that she needs to do things that actually make her happy. The audience would never see a timid Ashley conform to her parents’ expectations again. Sure, her newfound freedom would get her in trouble sometimes (i.e. the Season 5 episode when she goes behind her parents’ backs and enrolls in public school). But it would also let her explore passions like singing.


If Will wasn’t inspiring other people to loosen up, his free spirit was evident in his style of dress.

When Will first enrolls in the all boys prep school, Bel-Air Academy, he is utterly disturbed by the stuffy uniforms that students have to wear. The thought of blending in drives him crazy. Will being Will, he flips the uniform’s navy blue blazer inside out, revealing a funky pattern and letting him feel more comfortable in a situation that forces him to be someone he isn’t. Soon, his willingness to stand out rubs off on others who copy his reversed jacket.

I always admired how Will used fashion to reflect his identity—even if it wasn’t the “appropriate” thing to do. From the moment Will showed up at the Banks’s residence in loud, brightly colored streetwear, he brightened the dull neighborhood of Bel-Air. When I was younger, what I really wanted to do was dress however my heart desired, just like Will did. But as an impressionable teen, it felt more important to keep up with the latest trends.

I remember sitting in my bedroom when I was 15 years old, feeling super unhappy because the clothes in my closet didn’t feel like mine. They were carbon copies of the people I thought I was supposed to look like. Desperate to break away from the crowd, I decided to revamp my clothes myself.

I distressed everything, and turned old jackets into cools vests by adding patches and cutting off sleeves. I even went so far as to teach myself DIY nail art and make my own clip-in hair extensions. Unfortunately for me, I didn’t have a rich uncle to bankroll my new fashion obsession—but it became a passion project instead. Eventually, like Will, I accepted that I was actually happiest when I could bring some flavor to my style—even if meant that my classmates raised their eyebrows at Mika 2.0.

But like Will in Fresh Prince, people soon embraced my uniqueness and wanted to emulate it.

Imitation is the greatest form of flattery, which I learned as a 15-year-old trying to break out of a box I felt trapped in. When people were interested in my new style, I felt free—I had presented something different from the norm and, for the first time in my life, I could be proud of my differences—not embarrassed by them. Today, I still celebrate how my appearance exudes my personality. Whether I’m trying out bold makeup or wearing millions of prints, I feel my best when I’m not following trends.

When I embraced this freedom, I started uncovering parts of my identity that would essentially shape my adulthood. I started exploring my love of makeup and writing, which is now my career. Had I been focused on what everybody else—including my parents—wanted for me, I wouldn’t be the successful person that I am today.

In Fresh Prince, when Will was unapologetically himself, it often got him further than any of the other characters. Now, I feel the same way about my own life.

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.

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.

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.

Fresh Prince Star, Backpack Kid Sues Epic Over Allegedly Stolen Fortnite Dances

Update 12/18: Another individual has joined Alfonso Ribeiro in suing Epic Games for copying their famous dances.

Per the Daily Mail, the 16-year-old Backpack Kid (Russell Horning) is suing Epic Games for using his move, “The Floss” as an emote in the game. Though it is a one-time special reward made available in Battle Pass Season 2, players can’t actually purchase the move. The lawsuit has reportedly been filed by his mother on his behalf on Monday seeking unspecified damages against Epic games and Take Two, for its use in Fortnite and NBA 2K without permission or paying royalties.

Horning and The Floss became famous after he posted videos of himself performing the dance on Instagram, and reached a wider audience when he did the move during Katy Perry’s performance of Swish Swish on SNL in 2017.

Prince William cracked a joke about Kate Middleton’s outfit and steady on, Wills

Tread carefully.

kate middleton christmas tree

The festive season is well and truly here: the trees are all up, the lights have switched on and for Prince William, the time has finally arrived to bust out a couple of Christmas jokes. The Duke of Cambridge and Kate Middleton were recently in Cyprus to visit an RAF base, where the Duchess arrived in a chic yet casual outfit. While most of us were out yass queen-ing over her wide legged trousers and blazer combo, Prince William on the other hand was cracking wise about her CEO-chic look.

According to Hello!, the pair visited RAF Akrotiri for a brief visit to meet with servicemen and women who would be separated from their family during the holidays. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge reportedly ‘handed out the presents from some of the families’ to RAF personnel and later withdrew for a quick photo opp by a charmingly decorated Christmas tree. While there however, he was caught making a joke at Kate’s expense.

As they posed by the green and white Christmas tree, he noted that Kate and the tree were twinning. According to Harper’s Bazaar, he joked, ‘My wife’s camouflaged against the tree.’

He continued the joke and even offered to step out of the picture, asking photographers, ‘Do you want me to move out of the photo?’

Honestly, kind of. But only because the Duchess’ outfit deserved an #OOTD of its own, since we’re still obsessed with it. The look was a vast change from her intricate Jenny Packham gown at the Queen’s Diplomatic Reception earlier this week, as it was a much more laidback (but no less sophisticated) look. She turned to one of her favourite fashion designers Smythe for her Duchess Blazer, an L.K. Bennett clutch and diamond hoop earrings by Asprey.

Kate also drew the attention of the internet for her glorious navy wide-legged trousers, which many pointed out could be a sign Meghan Markle’s style is rubbing off on the royal. Markle was photographed at Wimbledon earlier this year wearing white trousers in a similar style. It was a pretty memorable style moment for the royal, if only because we couldn’t imagine keeping them as pristine as the Duchess did.

We’re personally loving Kate’s more casual looks recently, as it feels like a new shift in Kate Middleton’s style evolution. For instance, she brought the festive joy in a bright red tartan skirt to meet Santa Claus which we instantly fell in love with.

To our knowledge, Prince William didn’t crack any jokes about her outfit then but they were photographed looking super adorable as they were pelted with fake snow.

Christmas couple goals, TBH.

Prince William Slams Tech Leaders’ Failure to Combat ‘Cruelty and Intolerance’

WPA Pool

Prince William has accused tech companies of hypocrisy, saying they’re falling short in tackling cyberbullying and other social problems while reveling in a “self-image grounded in their positive power.”

He told tech leaders they must “fight back against the intolerance and cruelty that has been brought to the surface by your platforms.”

In a surprisingly political speech, William called on social-media companies to “reject the false choice of profits over values” and issued a coruscating condemnation of their social impact, saying, “On every challenge they face—fake news, extremism, polarization, hate speech, trolling, mental health, privacy, and bullying—our tech leaders seem to be on the back foot.”

A Saudi Prince Says Harvard Disinvited Him After Killing of Jamal Khashoggi

Win McNamee

Harvard has become the latest institution to spurn association with a top Saudi after the killing of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

Harvard Belfer Center’s Kennedy School disinvited Saudi Prince Turki al Faisal from a long-planned week in residence, the prince told The Daily Beast in an interview at his Virginia home.

“I got notice… very politely saying ‘this may not be the right time for you to come and lecture because of the Khashoggi affair,’” said Turki, the son of the late King Faisal, and former ambassador to the United States.

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.

The royal couple started their whirlwind 16-day tour Down Under in Sydney, with a number of day trips to other areas of the country, and kicked off the 2018 Invictus Games before spending a few days in Fiji and Tonga.

They returned to Sydney for the end of the Invictus Games before heading to New Zealand to wrap their tour.

Meghan and Harry will wrap up their busy day at a reception hosted by the Prime Minister at the Auckland War Memorial Museum.

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!

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are currently undertaking their first official long royal tour, journeying through Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and the Kingdom of Tonga together.

To say that they have been a hit would be a huge understatement, with the royal newlyweds making viral news every day, from their sweet comments about their future arrival to their warm greetings with members of the public.

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.

Well, according to TMZ, a royal tour of the USA was supposed to take place in Spring 2019. It has now however been postponed.

But why the push back? Well, for their baby!

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to welcome their newborn in Spring 2019, with an exact due date not yet announced.

It’s hardly surprising therefore that the royal couple want to wait a bit before they travel to America.

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.’

Kate Middleton and Prince William threw a secret event in Kensington Palace

And everyone’s getting FOMO.

With soon-to-be parents Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on their royal tour in Australia and Pippa Middleton welcoming a baby just this week, the attention has been off Kate Middleton and Prince William.

In fact, we’ve hardly seen the Duchess of Cambridge this year, with Kate taking a maternity leave after the birth of Prince Louis, returning to royal duties just this month.

But given the attention on other members of the royal family, Kate and William managed to throw a secret party in Kensington Palace this week, with the public and press only finding out after the occasion.

The event in question was work-related – a surprise reception for the finalists of this year’s BBC Radio One’s Teen Hero Awards at their Kensington Palace home.

The couple reportedly welcomed teenage finalists to the reception, talking to them about their work as Teen Heroes of 2018.

‘It was such an honour and privilege to meet the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at Kensington Palace,’ one of the winners, Siena Castellon, explained to HELLO!. ‘They were both genuinely interested in my website, www.QLMentoring.com, which I created to support and mentor autistic students and students with learning disabilities.’

She continued: ’The Duchess was especially interested in addressing autism stereotypes and was saddened to hear about the severity of the disability-related bullying I have experienced. She congratulated me for being a Diana Award holder and for currently serving on the National Youth Board, a role that has given me a national platform through which to share my disability-based bullying experience. They were both incredibly warm, supportive and encouraging. Meeting them was an awesome experience! They have inspired me continue to make a positive difference in my community.’

The BBC Radio One Teen Awards Ceremony will take place on Sunday, hosted by Greg James.

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.

This ex of Kate Middleton’s made Prince William more jealous than most

Yes, really.

Kate Middleton and Prince William are one of the most talked about couples in the world, from their happy family life with Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, to their relatable day to day habits at Kensington Palace – they’re just like us really!

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge seem so happy in fact it’s hard to remember that there were ever rocky patches.

In 2007 however, Kate and Wills briefly broke up, with Kate even leaving the country to process the split, heading to Dublin with her mum and a group of friends to relax.

It has emerged however that also during their break up, Kate had a brief romance – and it is reported to have annoyed William more than most.

Why? Because it was with one of William’s Eton school friends, shipping heir Henry Ropner.

REX

It gets even more dramatic as Harper’s Bazaar Australia reported that William once dated Ropner’s ex back in the day.

Drama!

‘We were both very young,’ Prince William explained of the split in their 2010 engagement video interview. ‘It was at university, we were sort of both finding ourselves as such and being different characters and stuff, it was very much trying to find our own way and we were growing up.’

He continued: ‘It was just sort of a bit of space and a bit of things like that, and it worked out for the better.’

Kate certainly seemed to agree, explaining, ‘I think at the time I wasn’t very happy about it, but actually it made me a stronger person.’
