Y’all, royals summer is OVER! People are back out and about and wearing giant hats and thank god. Additionally: Willem-Alexander grew a summer beard, and I gotta admit…I’m into it.

In case you missed it yesterday, it was Princess Charlotte’s first day of school and it was VERY CUTE.

Elsewhere on the internet:

The New York Times has profiled Princess Beatrice’s boyfriend (professionally).

In honor of Wills and Kate’s upcoming royal tour, at Tatler: The Royals in Pakistan

I wonder if this will continue: Prince Andrew engagements in Northern Ireland cancelled in wake of Epstein scandal [Sky News]

This is cute, at Elle: Wills and Kate took the kids out for a pub dinner at their usual spot. The anecdote about George is VERY cute (and also I think he really hates people looking at him, which is gonna be…a situation for him later).

Meghan is in New York right now, in advance of tomorrow’s US Open women’s final. (She’s just in the US for the weekend.) I’m sure we’ll have coverage of it tomorrow, so come on by. [People]

Harper’s Bazaar has the scoop on the Sussexes’ tour of South Africa, Botswana, Malawi and Angola, which will be running September 23rd (the day after the Emmys, squeak all of the pop culture reporters in unison) to October 2nd. Unrelated, I am very tired!!!!

And, in social media developments:
