Almost there. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have just completed their second-to-last day of events on their first overseas tour. They visited the Northshore Riding Club where they competed against each other in a “wellie wang” (tossing rainboots), and planted a tree for the Queens Canopy, and met with Pillars, an organisation working with children of prisoners, and there was a walkabout, and then a reception at the Auckland Museum War Memorial. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Before Crazy Rich Asians opened, director Jon M Chu talked about what the success of the movie could do for other stories.
