  • This week, we learned that we’re not going to see any Meghan Markle and Prince Harry drama on season six of Netflix’s The Crown. Series creator Peter Morgan recently stated that the final season will cover the administrations of John Major and Tony Blair, which puts the end of the series roughly around 2007, so it won’t be covering the Sussexes’s relationship. “The Meghan and Harry story is nowhere near over yet,” he said. “And I’m happy that I’m never going to write it.”
  • On Monday, Prince Harry participated in an interview with Black Lives Matter activist Patrick Hutchinson as part of GQ’s Heroes conference. During the virtual chat, which was shot from Harry’s new home in Montecito, the duo discussed the BLM movement and unconscious racial bias. Turns out, Harry was unaware of the latter, that is, until he began to step into his “wife’s shoes.”
  • The same day, we found out that Prince William, Kate Middleton and their three children have been spending some quality time in the kitchen. The shared Instagram of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (@Kensingtonroyal) revealed that the couple, along with their three kids, Prince George, 7, Princess Charlotte, 5, and Prince Louis, 2, have been busy baking treats for war veterans and armed forces members to thank them for their service.

  • Over the weekend, Princess Estelle of Sweden accompanied her mom, Crown Princess Victoria and her grandfather, King Carl XVI Gustaf (yup, that’s three generations of Swedish royalty), for the inauguration of the Golden Bridge in Stockholm. During the event, the monarch cut the ceremonial ribbon and was followed by his daughter and granddaughter as he walked across the bridge for the first time.
  • Earlier this week, we learned that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are currently looking to hire a new permanent housekeeper to take care of their primary residence in London. According to the job posting, which is listed on the Royal Household website, the new hire will “support the management of all housekeeping operations and pro-actively deputize for the Senior Housekeeper, being accountable in their absence.”
  • On Tuesday, the Duke of Sussex stood up for himself against an article commenting on his current relationship with the British armed forces. The 35-year-old’s lawyers at London firm Schillings have sent a legal warning to the Mail on Sunday in regards to a recent post stating that he had not been in touch with the Royal Marines since stepping down as a senior member of the royal family. The statement reportedly referred to the article as “false and defamatory.”

Earlier this week, while the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stepped out to honor frontline workers at the Pride of Britain Awards, the royal pair were full-on twinning in chic, tailored suits. The royal couple teamed up with journalist Kate Garraway to film the annual special, where they honored the National Health Service (NHS) for their role in fighting against the pandemic.
