Prince Harry

All Hail, Baby Archie!

-Cue the jingle jangle jokes: Meghan Markle and Prince Harry called their baby Archie. The couple has chosen not to use courtesy titles so it’ll be Master Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. When Charles is King he’ll automatically become Prince Archie, but he (or his parents) may choose not to use it.

-Earlier today, Meghan and Harry presented the baby in a brief interview, and they both looked glowingly happy. (I love what she wore.)

-Meanwhile, George Clooney says he hopes for  kinder treatment of Meghan in the media going forward.

-In other baby news, Amy Schumer called her son Gene.

-Even the guy who plays Gendry thinks that Game of Thrones marriage proposal was silly.¬†“He just got a bit gassed and asked someone to marry him. And she quite rightly told him where to go. What a stupid question! I think he knows deep down in his heart of hearts there is no way Arya will ever be anyone’s lady.”

Buckingham Palace Not Disputing Reports That Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Are Moving to Africa

-There was lots of gossip coming from the palace this long weekend, including talk that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will move to Africa after the baby is born, putting further distance between them and Will & Kate. The brothers were notably chilly during their Easter public appearance.

-Meanwhile, the palace released new photos of Prince Louis in celebration of his 1st birthday.

-A LOT of celebrities used the Easter long weekend as a news dump for split announcements:¬†Michelle Williams split from hubby Phil Elverum after less than a year of marriage,¬†Adele and husband Simon Konecki called it quits, and¬†Pitch Perfect’s Anna Camp and Skylar Astin have split after two years of marriage.

-God, last night’s Game of Thrones was my favourite episode in years. The big battle episodes like next week’s is rumoured to be don’t mean anything unless they’re preceded by “people talking in rooms” episodes. And it featured a perfect scene between my favourite duo on the series:¬†Jaime and Brienne. This article on why they’re the show’s best couple is spot on.

-Speaking of GoT,¬†people need to stop talking about “fan service” if they don’t know what it means. It means when the writers suddenly introduce elements that haven’t been developed/don’t feel natural just to appease a segment of the audience (the term comes from anime, when they’d throw in sexy costumes and scenes just to keep dudes on the hook even if it didn’t make sense character-wise). Fan service is NOT anything that makes a certain group of fans happy. That’s called story development. Paying off our investment in the characters we’ve followed for a decade by allowing them to have conversations before they head into a giant battle that some won’t survive isn’t fan service; it’s good storytelling. This thread sums it up nicely.

-There was also a lot of backlash to Arya‘s choice last night, but I loved it for these reasons. It’s hilarious that the HBO twitter account¬†confirmed her character is 18 before the episode aired. Also hilarious: Sophie Turner drunkenly posting about “pussayyyy.”

-During Age of Ultron junket, MTV’s Josh Horowitz made the cast guess each other’s biceps. He leveled up this press tour by adding butts and abs, and it was hilarious. “Do not tell him that I knew that was his butt!!” “I’m texting him right now…”
