Harry! Wills! An amazing dress on Maxima! AND MORE.
In case you missed it here at GFY, we rounded up a whole bunch of royal wedding swag!
We also wrote a piece for Bustle, which they titled: This Is The Rehearsal Dinner Toast Meghan Markle Deserves.
And elsewhere on the internets:
Bustle is actually doing a LOT of good royals coverage right now. You can read all of their pieces here, but I especially loved Alyssa Cole’s essay: Don’t Call Princess Stories “Frivolous” — For Women & Femmes Of Color, They’re Crucial. (PS: If you haven’t read any of Alyssa Cole’s books, you definitely should. She is one of my favorite authors.)
Marie Claire runs down some of Megham Markle’s family and several of them seem highly aggravating (she IS just like us. Although my sister is wonderful and would never sell a rude book about me).
W Magazine profiles the charities that Harry and Meghan have asked people to donate to, in lieu of wedding gifts.
In other Royal Wedding News, Victoria Beckham has confirmed that she’s NOT doing the dress, and H&M have announced that Alexi Lubomirski, who shot their engagement photos, will also be taking their wedding pictures. They must have liked him!
Meghan also swept back into Chicago this week to deal with her visa. That White Sox cap is so close to Bex Porter’s Cubs cap, it’s killing me! She is doing a LOT of back-and-forth lately, she must be exhausted. [Chicago Tribune)
This is enjoyable, at Vanity Fair: The Most Surprisingly Relatable Mishaps of Queen Elizabeth’s Wedding Morning
At Maclean’s: The double standards of being a royal child who’s a ‘spare of a spare’
Speaking of, and also at Vanity Fair, the Lindo Wing is getting ready for Baby Cambridge #3!
At The Local, this is logistically interesting: Denmark ‘almost finished’ preparing Queen’s burial place. I do like the idea of being able to storm in and give notes on my own grave.
In social media developments:

I don’t know what’s happening here, but this wallpaper is AMAZING.
Crown Prince Frederik is turning 50 next month, and has new portraits for the occasion:
I like Eugenie’s new haircut:
