Royal News Roundup: Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s Spanish Vacay, Queen Elizabeth’s Emojis & More
Here, all the royal news you need to know for the week of August 15, 2019.
- Meghan Markle, Prince Harry and, yes, even royal baby Archie are reportedly soaking up the last of the summer sun in Ibiza. According to The Daily Mail and Hello! magazine, the Sussexes are ending their summer (after their visit to Balmoral with Queen Elizabeth) with a vacation (via private jet, it's been speculated) to the swanky island off the coast of Spain.
- Happy birthday, Princess Anne! Queen Elizabeth's official Instagram account posted a picture of the monarch's only daughter in honor of her birthday, and included two on-point emojis: a balloon and a party popper. (We'd like to think the queen picked them out herself.)
