WELL. A lot has happened since last we rounded up royals. For example, there was a giant royal wedding and it was all extremely fun and VERY exciting and you can catch up on ANYTHING you missed in our coverage here. (Meghan and Harry also went to a garden party on Tuesday, which you can eyeball here.) Apparently, some other royals did other stuff also this past week? We better check in on them, too.
There was SO MUCH wedding coverage elsewhere that I am sure I missed because I was in the UK and not in front of my computer a ton this past week, but here’s some interesting stuff I did see:
This is pre-wedding, but it was fab: Meghan’s beagle got a royal escort into town and when I say “a royal escort,” I mean THE MOST ROYAL of escorts. [Lainey]
Meghan’s coat of arms was reveal today and I love all the California symbolism. [T&C]
At Harper’s Bazaar, from Omid Scobie, who knows whereof he speaks: The Untold Story of Meghan Markle’s Wedding Dress
Speaking of, Emilia Wickstead is SALTY about this wedding dress, which she claims is a rip-off of one of hers and, just, this whole interview is not a cute look for her, especially given that Meghan recently wore a bespoke Wickstead piece. There are things you bitch about to your friends, and things you speak to the press about, and this feels like the former — especially if you want to continue to be in the Duchess of Sussex business, and Meghan is currently VERY VERY good for business. (Also, Wickstead claims in the interview that “people were saying” that the dress was Wickstead when Meghan appeared and….no, they were not. Because we all got the presser about who the designer was, and the Givenchy deets had low-key leaked that morning prior to the reveal — admittedly, when it leaked, my own thought as I walked up to Windsor from Eton was, “GIVENCHY? That can’t be right,” but still.) [Elle]
Also at T&C, apparently Princess Charlotte was a real little bossy boots at this wedding and I’ve never related to her more.
This royal wedding lip art!!!! [Revelist]
