Kate opens up about family, while Harry does lovely Harry things
Snippets of a documentary honouring Queen Elizabeth‘s 90th birthday have come out in which Duchess Kate revealed what George calls his great grandmum: Gan-Gan.
Gan-Gan. Omg. Can’t you hear it? Well, if you have kids around you maybe you have. But still!
“George is only two and a half and he calls her ‘Gan-Gan,'” said Kate, according to People. “She always leaves a little gift or something in their room when we go and stay, and that just shows her love for her family.”
And the Queen’s thoughts on Charlotte are what you’d expect. Kate said she was “really thrilled that it was a little girl, and I think as soon as we came back here to Kensington she was one of our first visitors here.”
Can’t you just see Her Majesty, fussing over the kids? They probably love her.
As for Harry, upon his arrival in Nepal on Saturday, the prince spoke at a reception in Kathmandu where he paid tribute to the resilience of the country’s people and how they recovered from last year’s devastating earthquakes.
“I’m sure you hear this all the time, but your country holds a special place in the imagination for so many people,” he said via The Telegraph. “I pay my respects to those who perished and hope to do what I can to shine a spotlight on the resilience of the Nepali people,” he said.
Harry also spoke briefly of Princess Diana, who visited the Himalayan country in 1993, and hinted that he plans to follow in her footsteps during his visit.
“I am honoured and excited to be here,” he told the Nepali people. “Many members of my family have visited Nepal, including my father and my mother, who were both warmly welcomed.”
He continued: “For me, this trip is also personal. I am so grateful that I will have the opportunity to pay tribute to some of Nepal’s most famous ambassadors, the Gurkhas, admired the world over for their fearsome bravery and courage but also for their humility and kindness.”
On Sunday, the prince visited Patan Durbar Square, a World Heritage site that has a royal palace and temples that were badly damaged.

He then visited a temporary camp sheltering about 250 people who are homeless because of the quake, where he was shown around by a teenage guide.
This is Purushottam Suwal showing Prince Harry around Byasi Earthquake camp in Bhaktapur. He is 15 years old and is chairman of the site’s management committee. He has lived in the temporary camp with his family and 250 other people for almost a year. He was made chairman because he took such an active role in helping his community in the aftermath of the 2015 earthquakes. He epitomises the resolve and resilience of the Nepali people that Prince Harry spoke about on arrival in the country yesterday. #HarryInNepal

Bieber posted another throwback of him and Selena and she liked it
Another week, another string of Instagram photos by Justin Bieber. But in the middle of family and shots of Biebs and Marilyn Manson was a sweet photo that made the hearts of all Jelena fans go pitter-patter.

Ahh, the sight of the good ol’ days for Justin and Selena Gomez somehow made our weekend a little better. And the caption, “Feels,” made fans go wild, so much so they needed to know how Selena would react. And she eventually did, giving hope to those who want Bieber and Gomez to get back together and live happily ever after.

That’s right, not only did Selena like the photo but her comment, “Perfect,” was, well, perfect. So you’re telling us there’s a chance.
Amy Schumer left a $1,000 tip for some lucky bartenders
Amy Schumer, her boyfriend, and a few of their friends saw Hamilton on Broadway on Saturday night. She ordered a few drinks for the group and according to Madeleine DeJohn, during intermission, “a member of her party came to the bar with another order and when he handed the receipt to my co-worker, he said, ‘Amy wants to make sure you get this.’ My co-worker looked at it and didn’t know what to say.”

“We’ve served a lot of celebrities at Hamilton and we’ve received some nice tips but never before had I seen a tip that even came close to this one,” DeJohn added to E! News. “Most of the bartenders in my company are artists, myself included, and this is our survival job while we try to ‘make it.’
Schumer, who used to wait tables and tended bar in New York while auditioning for gigs, totally gets it and even though she’s come far, far enough that she was able to meet some of the musical’s cast members after the show, she hasn’t forgotten where’s she’s come from. Awesome.
Guy Pearce and The Red Woman from Game of Thrones are having a baby
OK, there’s more to Carice van Houten than Game of Thrones but that’s clearly what she’s most known for. Well, until now. Because she and actor Guy Pearce, who no one really knew were together, are expecting their first child together.

No wonder their relationship is a bit of a mystery; she didn’t even have a photo of the two of them together and had to put up side-by-side images.
Van Houten also took to Twitter to announce it. Sort of.
Ok. I’m ready for your shadowbaby jokes.
— Carice van Houten (@caricevhouten) March 19, 2016
The actress is referring to that weird childbirth scene from Season 2 where she delivered some sort of… we still don’t know what. We think it’s safe to say that’s not going to happen here. We hope. Congrats to Carice and Guy!
Of course Kim K’s diaper bag is an Hermes Birkin
Kim Kardashian may have revealed on her website what she keeps in North’s diaper bag but that’s not really the fascinating part. Sure, she keeps “a mix of essentials and some of her favorite things — like all-natural lollipops and Minnie Mouse pajamas,” as well as Annie’s Homegrown Cheddar Bunnies snacks, raisins and organic gummy bears, baby wipes from The Honest company and a hair brush to tame North’s curls. But it’s what’s holding it all that has everyone’s attention.
“My Birkin carries all of my essentials,” Kim wrote, though she does admit that when she’s not feeling the tote, she carries North’s Skip Hop unicorn backpack instead.
Yes, we get that Kim’s a gazillionaire and she’s probably got nine of those Hermes bags, which start at $11,000. But the people at the French company must be shaking at the thought of the bottom of their beautiful lined bags are loose raisins and sticky candy. For shame, Kim. For shame.
