At least ONE person herein has draped herself in velvet and it’s not Baroness Costanza.

In case you missed it earlier this week, we got some Kate action as she and Wills went to Wales, and also to the BAFTAs.

At The Mirror (I KNOW BUT IT’S THEIR EXCLUSIVE and their archival stuff on this is great): Hero who saved Princess Anne from kidnap now selling medal to pay for funeral. (The Queen paid off his mortgage for him back in the day!) I hope whoever buys it…I dunno, gives it back to him.

People reports: Meghan Markle and Prince Harry to Spend Time in L.A. This Summer: ‘They Are Looking at Houses.’ Come by for cocktails, guys!

Page Six reports that H&M were “keynote speakers at an exclusive JPMorgan event ” in Miami this week but this seems like it’s somewhat unconfirmed.  I’ll call an emergency Meeting of the Morgans and get to the bottom of this! (Other sources seem to be saying that they just ATTENDED said event, Victoria Murphy says HARRY spoke — no offense to Harry but I cannot imagine what he’d be talking about at an investment summit. [I do like to imagine that while he’s talking about whatever –probably charitable endeavors, honestly — Meghan has snuck off to actually figure out their investment strategy.])

We’re getting details about Princess Beatrice’s forthcoming nuptials. Via Harper’s Bazaar, it’s set for May 29th and shall happen at the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace, with the reception in the Buckingham Palace gardens. (It won’t be televised.)

And, in social media developments:

Edward is in Nigeria and Cote d’Ivoire and he’s having the best time.
