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.

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

Tread carefully.

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.”

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.

Alleged Emo ‘Sex Cult’ Leader William Control’s Comeback Attempt Shocks Victims

Facebook

In June, The Daily Beast published allegations from multiple women about former Aiden singer William Francis. The women claimed that Francis, who performs under the moniker William Control, “physically and emotionally abused women, ordered many of them to get matching tattoos of his initials, and even demanded contracts from his sexual partners or ‘slaves,’ signed in their own blood.” As one survivor, Stormie Somers, told The Daily Beast at the time, “What [Francis] considers BDSM—basically he just beats the shit out of you and brainwashes you to believe your sole purpose is to serve him and to worship him and that’s your job.”

“It went from crossing lines of consent to totally physical annihilation.”

Francis denied the accusations, writing in a June 7 statement, “I have, in the past, engaged in heavy role play and bondage relationships WITH consent. However, I do not engage in that sort of play anymore. And for anyone who feels as though I have hurt them or violated their consent, I am sorry. It won’t ever happen again. There are lots of things that have been said that are outright lies. I have never been with underage girls. I have never been involved in a ‘sex cult.’”

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.

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.’
