Meghan returned and Louis made his Trooping the Colour debut

Queen Elizabeth‘s actual birthday may have been in April but the annual Trooping the Colour parade, which took place this past weekend, marks the Queen’s official birthday. Because any reason to celebrate, right? There’s the parade, the royal procession, and the RAF fly-by featuring all kinds of military aircraft, which the royals watch from the Palace’s balcony.

Like every other year, The Queen was front and centre but there were two other royals who may have stolen a bit of her thunder — without even trying, which makes it that much more impressive.

The 2019 Trooping marks Duchess Meghan‘s return to the royal fold, as she and Prince Harry presumably left baby Archie with Meg’s mom, Doria Ragland. Meghan looked stunning in a navy caped ensemble with white flutter sleeves.

Today The Duke and Duchess of Sussex joined The Queen and members of The Royal Family at the annual Trooping the Colour, to celebrate Her Majesty’s official birthday. Trooping the Colour orginated from traditional preparations for battle and has commemorated the birthday of the sovereign for more than 250 years. In the 18th century, guards from the royal palaces regularly assembled to “troop” colours or flags down the rank, so they could be seen and recognised by the soldiers. In 1748, it was announced this parade would also mark the Sovereign’s official birthday. Trooping the Colour is performed by regiments of the British and Commonwealth armies for The Queen’s birthday parade, allowing them to pay a personal tribute to Her Majesty. Today over 1400 parading soldiers, 200 horses and 400 musicians came together on Horse Guards Parade in London in a great display of military precision, horsemanship and fanfare. The parade concludes with a 41-gun salute fired by The King’s Troop, following which The Queen leads members of The Royal Family back to the balcony of Buckingham Palace to watch the Royal Air Force flypast display.

But it was the five members of the Cambridge clan that may have won the day. It marked Prince Louis‘ debut on the balcony and he stole the show — sucking his thumb and wearing one of Uncle Harry’s hand-me-downs.

And while George and Charlotte have proven to be masters at waving to their adoring fans, Louis is clearly the most enthusiastic.

Ryan Reynolds, Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal trolled one another on Best Friends Day

It was National Best Friends Day on Saturday and leave it to Ryan Reynolds, Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal to make it hilarious and maintain the ongoing “feud” they’ve held one another to.

Reynolds struck first, naturally.

Jackman responded in kind, with a post of himself and Reynolds, but was nice enough to give a shoutout to Gyllenhaal in the caption.

Jake, on the other hand, decided to leave Ryan out all together, but was more than happy to tag Reynolds, who replied in the comments, “True story… Hugh is just under 5 feet tall,” and Jackman added, “Looking forward to our dinner on the 12th. Without… not pictured.”

Céline Dion’s Las Vegas residency came to an end

It’s been 16 amazing years but it had to end at some point. Céline Dion performed her final Las Vegas residency show, which included a touching tribute to her late husband and manager, René Angélil.

According to People, Dion sang a cover of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” during her 1,141st concert at the Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace on Saturday when photos of moments from her past shows appeared on screens. There was also a pic of Céline and René that popped up and remained as their three sons, René-Charles and eight-year-old twins Eddy and Nelson, joined her onstage.

“I’m both proud and humbled by what we’ve accomplished at the Colosseum since we began 16 years ago, when René and I first shared this dream,” Dion said. “This entire experience has been a huge part of my show business career … one that I will cherish forever. I have so many people to thank, but the most important ‘thank you’ goes to my fans, who gave us the opportunity to do what we love.”

Céline also debuted a new song, “Flying on My Own,” from her upcoming album, Courage. According to People, it’s her strength, not her emotions, that inspired the song. “Flying on my own, this is a new chapter. René will always remain in my life.”

Dion will take the summer off, but go right back at it on a world tour, which is set to kick off in September.

Kylie Jenner hosted a Handmaid’s Tale-themed party and people were less than pleased

In honour of the show’s return to TV, Kylie Jenner threw a Handmaid’s Tale-themed viewing party which doubled as a birthday celebration for her longtime pal, Stassie Karanikolaou, on Saturday.

The guests wore red robes and white bonnets reminiscent to what the handmaids wear on the series. ICYDK, The Handmaid’s Tale is set in the dystopian world of Gilead, a totalitarian and theocratic state that uses fertile women, a.k.a. handmaids, as sex slaves to carry children for couples who can’t conceive. And because of the show’s premise and how eerily real it’s slowly becoming, people were not exactly happy with the theme of the party.

Alec Baldwin is done playing Trump on SNL

Despite his masterful portrayal on Saturday Night Live, Alec Baldwin told USA Today he likely will no longer play the caricature again, saying, “I’m so done with that.” Say it ain’t so!

“I can’t imagine I would do it again,” Baldwin told the paper. “I just can’t. They should find somebody who wants to do it. They’re all my dear friends and I love going there, but the other thing is that I’m going to go to work this fall in a way I haven’t done in a while.”

He continued, “My wife and I had a son a year ago, and since he was born, I’ve worked minimally because I wanted to be there for my wife and kids. But the party’s over this fall and I’ll be travelling. SNL just crushes my weekends, and now weekends are going to become much more precious to me because that’s time with my kids.”

When asked who he thinks should replace him, Baldwin mentioned SNL alum Darrell Hammond as well as Anthony Atamanuik, who impersonates Trump on The President Show. Baldwin as Trump will be missed.
