Alex Bramall, who photographed Eugenie for a spread in Harper’s Bazaar in 2016, captured her and Jack’s big day and made it complete with this candid black-and-white photo in the stagecoach after they exchanged vows.
But it’s the final photo, of the couple dolled up for their evening wedding reception, that will make your jaw drop.
Dang. They looked good before but they cleaned up even better for the party. We’re not sure who looks better — Jack all dapper and confident in his tux, or Eugenie, looking like a goddess in her rose-coloured Zac Posen. Congrats to these two.
Harry and Meghan arrive in Australia
It’s been a busy weekend for Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan. They witnessed his cousin get married on Friday. By Sunday (U.K. time), the Sussexes arrived in Australia to kick off their first royal tour. AND they announced they’re expecting a baby! So. Much. Good.

They kept their arrival as low-key as possible — with nary a wave from neither Harry nor Meghan — though that was near-impossible considering the impressive entourage with them. They were holding hands though. Obviously.
Their 16-day tour of Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand officially begins on Tuesday, the bulk of which will be spent in Sydney where they will attend the 2018 Invictus Games from Oct. 20 through Oct. 27. We. Can’t. Wait.
Not long to go until the start of #RoyalVisitAustralia! 🇦🇺
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are looking forward to meeting as many Australians as possible, and building an enduring relationship with the people of the country: https://t.co/p7h0Dc4sWv pic.twitter.com/EraDR8osBr

No, Michael Bublé is NOT retiring from the music biz
The Daily Mail published a story on Friday in which Michael Bublé announced that it was his “last interview” and he’s “retiring.” He added that his family comes first, especially after everything they’ve dealt with over the last few years from his eldest son’s cancer to the birth of their third child earlier this year. “I don’t have the stomach for it any more … the celebrity narcissism.” As for the retirement news, let’s just say people were kinda-sorta devastated.
seeing that Michael Bublé is retiring is the worst news I could hear today 🙁 rip christmas

I actually cried after hearing about Michael Bublé retirement however i think is actually wise to do it since his family is first…

Don’t fret, though, because the retirement news is completely false. It truly is a beautiful day.
Michael Buble’s representative Liz Rosenberg tells us “he is definitely not retiring,” despite a report in the Daily Mail which has been picked up all over the place.

Phew! Bublé is still going to make music, plus, his new album comes out Nov. 16. We’re feeling good.
Drake talked about his son for the first time
It was in June that Drake confirmed the rumours that he has a son through his song “March 14,” on his album Scorpion. But on Friday’s episode of LeBron James‘ new unscripted HBO series The Shop, the rapper spoke publicly about his child with former adult film star Sophie Brussaux for the first time.
“I am a single father learning to communicate with a woman who, we’ve had our moments,” Drake told James and his business partner, Maverick Carter. “I do want to be able to explain to my son what happened. But I don’t have any desire for him to not love his mother. I don’t ever want the world to be angry at his mother. We have found ourselves in a situation and we are both equally responsible. Now, I’m just really excited to be a great father.”
He added: “No matter what happens, I have unconditional love for the mother of my child because I want him to love his mother and I have to project that energy.”
Drizzy revealed that it was Kanye West who let the secret out, detailing the conversation the two men had about Brussaux and how Drake even showed Ye pics of his little boy at the time. Their feud escalated and then the Pusha T/Drake Battle of the Diss Tracks happened. But all’s good now, right? And Drake is a forgiving guy. If he can bring Chris Brown on stage during one of his concerts, Drake, Kanye and Pusha T will be friends in no time. And perhaps it was for the best. Now it’s out and all is good. Well, for most people. (Keep reading.)
Kanye returned to Twitter with a video about mind control
It was nine days before Kanye West broke his Twitter hiatus. Ugh, too soon. He came back on Saturday to tweet videos from Uganda about mind control, the longest one being just over nine minutes. Enjoy, if you have the time, but nutshell? He spoke at length about the mind and “unprogramming” ourselves.

Some of the subjects he broached: he chatted with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey about removing the likes from tweets, his “Mensa-level” IQ scores, his inability to get the publishing rights to his music, and how the home renovations are costing him and Kim “money after money after money.” All that, but ultimately he kept returning to the greater idea of mind control and programming of the brain.
“We will say what we feel, we will do what we feel,” he chanted his new mantra, adding, “Social media told you that people didn’t love me but everybody loves Ye. Unprogram your mind, open up your heart.”
But that wasn’t all. Kanye also gave a surprise Twitter performance from Africa, where he’s finishing up his new album.
