Tis the part of summer where everyone is on vacation! This slideshow still brings you Wiki Deep dives, people on boats, and gowns!

FYI, on Saturday, Meghan and Harry are due to attend a wedding of one of Harry’s friends (it’s also her birthday); if we get pictures, we’ll cover it — so come on by!

Elsewhere around the internet:

Writing for Vanity Fair, Katie Nicholl asks, “Are Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Retreating from the Spotlight?” The piece is good.

Meanwhile, Wills and Kate have been whooping it up in Mustique! I hope there was dorky dancing. (They’re back now.) [Hello!]

Princess Madeleine and Chris O’Neill are moving from Sweden to…Florida????  [Vogue]

Speaking of Sweden….SOMEONE STOLE THEIR CROWN JEWELS AND ESCAPED VIA BOAT! One of the items stolen is an orb and frankly I’m concerned, given how 2018 is going, that this is going to eventually involve dark magic. [WaPo]

This is interesting, at Georgian Papers: Jane Austen and the Prince Regent: The Very First Purchase of an Austen Novel

W reports: MTV’s The Royal World Is Basically The Real World for Royals. Let’s talk about who we think might be convinced to go on this thing. I have a low-key suspicion that Jazmin Grimaldi might be the American, BUT! She has been doing a lot of stuff with her father lately and by all accounts, he’s very generous with her. So I don’t know if she needs to do this. (She might find it amusing, of course.)

Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie were profiled in this month’s British Vogue. The entire interview is not online but what there is online is…fine. Euj hates plastic.

And, on social media:

As I just mentioned, Bea and Euj are in this month’s British Vogue. This shot of them is wonderful:

I am INTO this day dress:
