Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, attended their first royal event as newlyweds yesterday. It was a garden party hosted in honor of Prince Charles’ upcoming 70th birthday. Meghan wore a pale pink dress by British label Goat for the occasion and a matching saucer-style hat by milliner Philip Treacy. In accordance with royal protocol, the new duchess sported pantyhose underneath. She stood by next to Camilla Parker-Bowles, Duchess of Cornwall, and Prince Charles, as her new spouse celebrated his dad’s legacy from behind a nearby podium.
Bishop Michael Bruce Curry, who spoke passionately about the power of love during Meghan and Harry’s ceremony at St. George’s Chapel on Saturday, appeared on Good Morning America yesterday, and admitted that he was shocked when he was invited to speak at their wedding.
He said, “I got a phone call, and I didn’t believe it, because a member of my staff called and said, ‘They’d like you to preach at the royal wedding,’ and I said, ‘Get out of here it’s April Fools. You’ve got to be kidding me.’ And it was actually true.”
His sermon went viral, as did the responses of the attendees. Kate Middleton threw some major side eye and Zara Tindall just straight-up dropped her jaw.
Bishop Curry added that he has a lot of hope for the impact Harry and Meghan have, saying, “the love between those two people, between that royal couple, was so powerful not only did we all show up, but it brought all these different worlds together.”
Kelly Clarkson has looked noticeably slimmer during the past few weeks. However, when asked by Entertainment Tonight about her fitness routine, the pop star issued a hilarious response. “I have to shout out my whole glam squad, I literally hired Harry Potter and SPANX, it’s all like a sausage.”
George Clooney really brought the party to the Royal Wedding reception from what I hear. My source tells me George actually hopped behind the bar at one point to mix drinks for guests. George does know a thing or two about cocktails, he and Rande Gerber famously sold their Casamigos brand to Diageo last year for a reported $700 million.
Ready for some honeymoon details! As previously reported, I hear that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are looking at honeymooning in Africa. However, the new information I’m hearing is that this place is very remote. So remote that it requires an off-land Land Rover to get there [and] a satellite phone because there are no connections. You have to take a supply of food and water with you because you’re right in the middle of nowhere and if you break down without supplies, you’re in trouble. That gives you some indication of how remote this place is.”
One of my sources tells me Kim and Kanye want to top Jay-Z and Beyonce’s purchase of a $130 million Bel Air, California mansion. The couple allegedly wants to sell their $20 million Hidden Hills home for a $200 million Bel Air manor. The whole idea is that Kim wants a mansion that is bigger and better than Jay Z and Beyonce’s in every way.

Pink took to Instagram this week to open up about the insecurities she faces when raising her two children, 6-year-old daughter Willow and 18-month-old son Jameson. She wrote, “I feel like I had it all figured out when she was younger, when it was just her. Now that there’s two, and such different ages, I feel flustered so much of the time. The older she gets the less clear I am on how to guide her.” She continued, “Do I take the raw honest tough way? Do I cuddle her and tell her to not to worry? Do I let her be sassy, knowing I want her to be strong and need her to be strong to survive in this world? Of course, but how do you interject subtlety and kindness? I already know I worry too much, don’t even bother telling me about that. I’m aware. Thoughts?” Many fans also shared their insecurities about raising children and praised Pink for her candidness.
Age ain’t nothing but a number to Sarah Paulson. The 43-year-old Ocean’s 8 star has been dating 75-year-old actress Holland Taylor since 2015, and doesn’t find the 32-year age difference that shocking. This is what she has to say about it: “If anyone wants to spend any time thinking I’m strange for loving the most spectacular person on the planet, then that’s their problem.” Mic drop
