Dear Gossips,

Let’s start the day with the Sussexes. The Sussexes are in Ireland… with dogs and babies! Well here’s a front page photo: Prince Harry and Royal Meghan playing cutesy faces and exchanging secrets with 3-year-old Walter Cullen at Croke Park today in Dublin. Here’s another shot of Meghan holding on to Walter’s little hand.


That’ll get the pregnancy countdown going, non? 

Earlier in the day, Harry and Meghan met with President Michael Higgins and his wife Sabina Coyne and their two Bernese mountain dogs, Brod and Shadow. 

This, below, is the shot that kills me – look at the big guy, hot as f-ck with all that fur but so well-trained, waiting patiently off to the side while the grownups say their goodbyes:


My dogs? Woulda been like, f-ck you, I’m going back inside where there’s air conditioning and, hopefully, some snacks. 

We’ll get to more of the royal tour later today. My question right now is whether or not their schedule has been adjusted for the football. Because…is there anything else happening in England today? Can anyone in England focus today? As you know, it’s such a big deal in England that even Prince William has tweeted – twice! – about the team’s World Cup run. The game is at 7pm local time in the UK. And the Sussexes have a packed itinerary. Who’s the one assigned to whisper updates into Harry’s ear? 

Yours in gossip,
