If you can even believe it, Prince Harry left the house for a royal engagement without Meghan Markle. This time he got to serve pasta to children, and he didn’t even nearly get bitten by a presumably Republican pony.

Today Prince Harry and his betrothed, Meghan Markle, made another round of public appearances.

Do not make the mistake of thinking you can disclose what happens inside such intimate confines as a royal bra fitting and maintain your association with the Windsors.
Ed Sheeran, watch your back: During Harry and Meghan’s visit to a London radio station, one man slipped the prince a business card with his contact info and offered to work as their wedding DJ.

Season’s greetings from the Windsors! Charles and Camilla are celebrating the duchess’s 70th birthday; William is proud to report George is doing well in nursery school. Harry, meanwhile, is newly engaged and just released an interview with Barack Obama.

Ed Sheeran has casually let it be known that that yeah, sure, of course he’d be happy to play the royal wedding. (The happy couple have not, as yet, asked.)
