Australian magazine Women’s Weekly has an exclusive interview with Princess Anne. It’s pretty interesting, and the photos are great.
Via Harper’s Bazaar: Duchess Meghan Gives Empowering Speech to Young Women: “This Is a Humanity That Desperately Needs You.” (She also looked fab!)

At Vanity Fair: The Biggest Prince Andrew News Is That There’s No Prince Andrew News. I feel like…there will be eventually.
At Tatler: The Queen’s private letters revealed following Australian High Court ruling. I haven’t been following this that closely, but this seems like sort of a big deal?
