Prince William and Catherine visited Bradford today. It’s been two days since the Queen publicly supported Sussexit and two days since the Sandringham summit, where William gathered with his father and brother and discussed the terms of Prince Harry stepping back from royal duties. As we know, and this is an understatement, there’s been a lot of tension between the two over the last 18 months. Full Story

Buckingham Palace announced this weekend that the Queen has asked Prince Charles, Prince William, and Prince Harry to convene with her at Sandringham today so that they can agree on a Sussexit plan going forward as they consider all the options for Harry and Meghan Markle’s new royal playbook. This in and of itself is unusual, for the British royal family to actually inform the media and the public of their private schedules and agendas. Full Story

It’s only been 48 hours since House Sussex publicly announced their intention to create a new job description for themselves and the story keeps changing and updating. Quick recap: when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle first released their statement, Buckingham Palace soon followed, less than two hours later with a rather terse response, saying that there were “complicated” issues to work through, suggesting that the Queen was far from signing off on the matter and that there might be pushback. Full Story

Yesterday, January 8, 2020, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle of House Sussex (for now, anyway), announced that they will be stepping back as “senior” members of the British royal family and declared their intention to be “financially independent”. My friend Kayla joked that Meghan basically told Harry to get a job. Full Story

We didn’t have time to get to Kit Harington and Rose Leslie during our Monday Golden Globes coverage yesterday but it was nice to see them back on the red carpet together, and so happy. Not just happy but… I don’t know if this is exactly the right word for it … peaceful? This is how it looked to me when I saw them on the carpet – staying close together whenever possible. Full Story
