If you missed it earlier this week, Harry and Meghan went out and threw balls around, then Meghan conducted her first solo engagement.  As for Kate: she’s back! Or nearly — she’s got something on the docket for Tuesday, which of course we will cover. And Wednesday, the Sussexes are going to Sussex, so that’s something to look forward to.

We also picked out some additions to Kate’s and Meghan’s wardrobe from the runways of London Fashion Week, and discussed Kate’s ensemble at a friend’s wedding over the weekend.

The queen’s cousin Ivar is now officially the first member of the extended royal family to have a same-sex wedding, as he recently married his partner. His ex-wife walked him down the aisle and gave him away!


Obama’s in Denmark:

[The caption says, roughly: “HRH Princess Marie was present today at the University of Southern Denmark’s “A Conversation with President Barack Obama,” along with students and business representatives. After the event, the Princess greeted Barack Obama. Her Royal Highness cooperates with the University of Southern Denmark to strengthen the knowledge of the university’s education, research and other activities, as well as to raise awareness of southern region nationally as well as internationally.”]

I feel like these screaming mice or whatever they are:

These shoes on Bea are not good! (But good on her for this worthy cause):

Beatrice and friend @holly_branson set up @bigchangecharity to help future generations thrive. Beatrice visited The Difference and I’m proud to show you what she experienced in her words: “Just as Teach First attracted a talented cohort of great teachers to inner city schools and Frontline has had incredible success recruiting and developing outstanding individuals to be leaders in the world of social work and beyond – I believe that in The Difference Kiran Gill, and her team, has developed a programme that will develop specialist leaders to work with our most vulnerable students. The number of exclusions in the UK continues to rise year on year – at an alarming rate. Thousands of pupils are getting lost in a system that is not equipped to identify issues early enough to mitigate the extreme action of exclusion. Some of children we met at Hawkswood were as young as six years old and have already been excluded from mainstream education, often due to mental health issues, unsafe and stressful home lives or learning difficulties for which they should instead be supported. It was incredible to see them thrive in an environment where their teachers had undertaken specialist training, both at the primary centre and the secondary centre Burnside, Waltham Forest. The Difference believe that recruiting the best teachers to work with these vulnerable children, and increasing specialised knowledge among the whole teaching workforce, is key to rewriting the story of worsening exclusion and poor outcomes for excluded pupils.”
