Prince William and Catherine visited Prince Harry and Meghan Markle yesterday at Frogmore Cottage for their first visit with Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. That’s all we know. The only statement released by the royals about it was that “it was a private visit”. Obviously this isn’t going to shut down rumours of a rift between House Cambridge and House Sussex but, right now, the UK media is focusing its venom solely on Meghan herself, still bothered by how she masterfully rolled out Master Archie’s introduction last week Full Story

Taylor Swift covers the new issue of Entertainment Weekly. This is basically a takeover. Taylor is a huge get for EW. They’ve dedicated several features in addition to the cover story to Swift content. And it’s a proper magazine interview – not an essay she’s written about herself, not another celebrity interviewing her, it’s conventional, it’s a departure from her “no comment” pose during the reputation era or, rather, a return to how it was before the reputation era. Full Story

It’s a move we don’t see too often anymore and much of that has to do with social media – there is no longer weekend downtime, we are locked in 24 hours of every day, not just Monday to Friday. So in a way, there’s no sense in burying your news right before a weekend since nobody really slows down. Full Story

Taylor Swift is counting down to something. There’s a countdown clock on her website. Her social channels the last few days are all pointing to “4.26”. The obvious would be new music, six months before she’s known to prefer to release new music, in the fall, but now that she has a new record deal, maybe in the new era, Taylor’s time is April. Full Story
