Dear Gossips, 

I opened this site on Friday with a note about royal egos and pettiness when writing about Princess Eugenie’s wedding and how it was also a moment for Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson. As you know, for years there have been rumours about Andrew’s relationship with his older brother, Prince Charles – that Charles does not approve of Andrew’s lifestyle, that Andrew is the wild card who’s been far too indulged by the Queen, which may be the cause of his past “cringe-worthy behaviour”. And of course there’s the long-held belief that Andrew is still bitter over Charles’s supposed rejection of Andrew’s request to have Beatrice and Eugenie become “full-time royals”.

This weekend, then, was meant to be Andrew’s time in the sun. He tried to make the most of it all weekend too, posting photo after photo and video after video on his Instagram account. And it lasted… EXACTLY the weekend. And no more. Because, well, you know what was announced this morning. 

With that in mind then, let’s squeeze out one last post for Andrew and use these official portraits. Many have noted that Fergie is standing next to Prince Philip with whom she’s had a thorny relationship for years. I wasn’t looking at the adults though. My focus went straight to that badass, little Mia Tindall, royal gangster. LOOK AT HER POSE:

She reminds of Paulie in Goodfellas, when he was in prison, holding court in their apartment, waiting for Henry to come back with the shipment of baguettes, salami, whiskey, and red wine. Mia Tindall is a BOSS. 

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Dear Gossips,

Princess Eugenie married Jack Brooksbank at Windsor Castle today. It’s their day but, you know, when we’re talking about royal egos and pettiness, it’s also Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson’s day. And the mother of the bride took full advantage of the moment.  Read Full Intro

Well, I assume it’s a rom-com. Issa Rae will be starring in a movie called American Princess about an American woman who moves to London and falls in love “in a very unexpected way”. I assume that means she falls in love with a royal. And I assume it’s a romantic comedy because we need something to provide relief from the horror—existential and actual—of life right now. Full Story

If you don’t already know Stephan James, you will soon. He’s at the point in his career I like to call the Oprah Burn. You know the Oprah quote. The one she says Quincy Jones said first but no one remembers that.  “Your future is so bright it burns my eyes.”  Stephan James is staring down a blindingly bright future. Full Story

Noah Centineo owes all of the love he’s been getting to two women: Jenny Han for creating Peter Kavinsky and Lana Condor for making him look so good by being so damn good herself. In the aftermath of the To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before hype, Noah Centineo’s stock has risen at exponential rates. Full Story

Once upon a time, Marvel was called cheap, largely because they didn’t pay their actors massive contracts (and also famously serving Subway sandwiches at their press junkets). Then, The Avengers happened and RDJ pulled in $50 million. So the story became that Marvel was cheap, except for RDJ, who gets the GDP of a small country just for showing up. Full Story

I was wrong. Princess Kate did not recycle today for Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbanks’s wedding. This pink dress is McQueen, her favourite designer and wedding designer. Great colour on her. Again, not entirely out of her style wheelhouse but the strong shoulder is basically Kate’s version of a push-forward. Full Story
