Celebrating Invictus 2018
Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan have lined up their first royal tour and it’s a doozy — albeit, somewhat predictable. Since Harry’s passion project, the Invictus Games, are in Sydney this year, it makes perfect sense that he and Meghan will be in attendance. But Australia won’t be the only country they’ll make stops in.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will undertake an official visit to Australia, Fiji, the Kingdom of Tonga, and New Zealand in the Autumn 🇦🇺🇫🇯🇹🇴🇳🇿

The Paralympic-style competition takes place from Oct. 20-27, so it’s unsure if that’s how they’ll cap off their tour or it’s where it all starts. Either way, it’s going to be an exciting time for the people of Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga.
Harry and Meghan, who made her Buckingham Palace balcony debut as she joined the rest of the royals celebrating Queen Elizabeth‘s 92nd birthday at Saturday’s Trooping the Colour, were glowing from their recent honeymoon. By October, a trip Down Under and to the South Pacific will keep their sunniness going well into the cooler season.

Anthony Bourdain’s daughter performs days after dad’s death
Anthony Bourdain‘s ex, Ottavia Busia, shared a heart-wrenching message about their daughter, Ariane, days after the star’s death.
Being a dad was one of the bright spots in Bourdain’s life. He wrote in his 2016 cookbook Appetites, “Fatherhood has been an enormous relief, as I am now genetically, instinctually compelled to care more about someone other than myself. I like being a father. No, I love being a father. Everything about it.”
More details emerged about Bourdain’s suicide, confirming he hanged himself in his hotel room bathroom in France, using the belt from his robe. They added that he was alone and no foul play was involved but investigators are still awaiting the results of toxicology tests.
For now, Bourdain’s funeral is on hold as his family waits on the French government to make final arrangements.
The Beckhams are NOT divorcing, got it?
In spite of reports that David and Victoria Beckham are splitting up, they want us all to know that their marriage is still going strong. A spokeswoman for the couple told The Sun there’s “no divorce” in the works and called the breakup rumours “bizarre,” “an embarrassing waste of time,” “fake social media news,” and if you didn’t get it those first three times, “a crock of sh*t.”
But if that still hasn’t convinced you, Victoria posted some pics of her and David out this weekend.
The two attended the Kent & Curwen spring/summer 2019 capsule collection fashion show and lunch in London on Sunday, marking their first public appearance together since the divorce rumours — which reached a fever pitch after the royal wedding a few weeks back when Victoria looked absolutely miserable — became rampant.
The Guardian, however, reports that they may have been together at the event but they arrived separately. No word on whether they left on their own or with one another. Hmm, putting on a show of a united front or are the Beckhams going through a rough patch? We will see.
The realistic gun shot sounds at Eminem’s concert did not go over well
Eminem performed at Bonnaroo on Saturday night and while many fans were pumped to see him, what they didn’t expect was realistic gun shot sound effects, which had some fans running for cover.
coming from a performing stand point, i get the effect of sound effects on stage, but there’s a certain point that cross’s the line. i’m one of eminem’s number 1 fans but to hear 3 gun shots coming straight from his set had me scared af. not gonna lie. especially in this world…

I understand where people are coming from, but today there is no such thing as too safe. t It’s pretty stupid for people to get on Em for using sounds that he has used before, but things happen and I understand why people may be frightened by it. It’s just the world we live in.

While many were quick to point out that the gun shot outro has been part of Eminem’s shows for years, you can’t blame the panic, considering deadly mass shootings in the U.S. are at an all-time high, whether they’re happening in schools or music festivals.
Not cool, Em. Perhaps it’s time to eliminate that feature from the song. But feel free to continue your wooing of Nicki Minaj. That we’re totally on board with.
Kim posted a pic of her three kids and it’s adorable
When you’re a mom of three, sometimes you just need to cuddle the kids and that’s just what Kim Kardashian did on Saturday. She shared the sweet selfie of herself in bed with North, Saint and Chicago, and while Kanye West wasn’t with them, he was with them in spirit as she used a lyric from one of his songs to caption the moment: “Welcome to the good life…”.
A good life indeed.
