LOTS to cover today, including William’s trip to the Middle East, which as far as I can tell went extremely well (and involved a lot of blue suits and sunglasses). Good on you, Wills.

If you missed it earlier this week, Harry and Meghan attended an event with the Queen, and I ran down ALL the outfits and sportfaces from Kate’s Wimbledon history. (Wimbledon starts on July 2nd.)

At Hello!: A variety of royals have to move out of Buckingham Palace while it’s being renovated.

At Town & Country: Thomas Markle Sr. Has Some Thoughts on Queen Elizabeth’s Meeting with President Trump. Oy vey.

It’s Dutch Princess Alexia’s 13th birthday, and they released a new portrait of her (the Scandi and Dutch royals LOVE A PORTRAIT):
