Africa is one of Prince Harry‘s favourite places in the world so it made perfect sense that he brought his girlfriend Meghan Markle there. The couple were spotted in South Africa on Friday, celebrating her 36th birthday with a romantic safari trip, The Sun reports. What’s that old saying, first comes elephants, then comes marriage?
Cue the sound of impending wedding bells, because we think is the perfect spot for Harry to pop the question.
“Harry has been planning this holiday for a long time,” a royal source told The Sun. “He’s made the trip incredibly romantic. They’ll go on boats across the lake, walk in the bush at dawn and camp under the stars.”
The insider hinted that an African sunset is the perfect setting for the prince to “get down on one knee” and we couldn’t agree more. The source added that Harry “regards Africa as his spiritual home and has often talked of how he can get away from it all there.”
Um, yes please.
Beyoncé on roller skates is everything
Back in the day, roller rinks were the place to be. Now, because of Beyoncé, we wouldn’t be surprised if the kids these days will be heading there once again. Bey was spotted on Friday at World on Wheels in Los Angeles, where she, Jay-Z and their friends and bodyguards embarked on a fun night.
An eyewitness told E! News they came in pretty discreetly and “if you didn’t know who they were they could’ve just fit in the crowd.” But this is Bey and Jay. And it didn’t take long before those there “began to swarm the floor.” While Jay stayed on his two feet, Bey took to the floor and did her thing. Because of course she’s an amazing roller-skater. She’s the Queen. She can do anything.
Grey’s Anatomy recasts key role
She may be the star of her own show, Timeless, but Abigail Spencer has signed on for a multi-episode arc on Grey’s as Owen’s sister, Megan. The character was last portrayed by Bridget Regan but her duties on The Last Ship, which stars Grey’s alum Eric Dane, have prevented her from reclaiming the role, reports TV Line.

And it seems Regan is OK with it. Heck, she gets to hang out with McSteamy so things aren’t all bad.

Timeless, which was originally cancelled but got enough fan support to get a surprise second season, will return next year, meaning Spencer was available for the gig. It also helps that the two actresses could pass for sisters, so it won’t be too jarring for keen-eyed Grey’s fans.
Last we left our favourite doctors, Nathan was racing off to join Owen and Amelia to see his ex, who was presumed dead. We can’t wait for its two-hour premiere on Sept. 28. Spencer will fit right in.
Brooklyn Beckham got a “Mama’s Boy” tattoo
Like the rest of us, Brooklyn Beckham really loves his mom. Victoria and David‘s eldest got a new tattoo on his chest: the words “mama’s boy.”
OK, it’s not the greatest pic but ET Online has a closeup of it, which Brooklyn showed off on Saturday while out for a run.
We totally get it. If Posh Spice was our mama, we’d probably get the same thing.
Patton Oswalt is selling the house he shared with his late wife
It looks like Patton Oswalt is starting fresh once again. Not only is the actor-comedian engaged to Meredith Salenger after the sudden death of his wife, Michelle McNamara, in April 2016, but the couple and Patton and Michelle’s daughter Alice look to be packing up and moving. According to Page Six, Oswalt’s house is now on the market for $2.5 million.
Sure, the memories Patton, Michelle and Alice are still so strong there but that has to be a little tough for Meredith. If they’re embarking on a new journey together, a new place where they can make their own memories seems to be the next logical step.
Defeated. For now. But I shall have my revenge. (Cue CAPE FEAR theme) pic.twitter.com/sFD3BMJPRk
