Meghan Markle will do ‘absolutely fine’ in the royal family, Mike Tindall says

According to Zara Phillips’ husband, the actress is now ready to enter the British royal family.

Mike Tindall, the husband of Prince Harry’s cousin Zara Phillips, recently talked about Meghan Markle in an interview with Sunday People.

“It comes with a lot of history and the family that it is. It’s obviously nerve-racking,” he told the publication. “But she has been under enough scrutiny and pressure in her day-to-day life so I’m sure she will get through it. She will be fine.”



The sportsman also had to integrate into the royal family years ago and, therefore, knows what he is talking about. He is a professional rugby player and fell in love with Queen Elizabeth’s granddaughter.

“As long as they are both happy that’s all that you can ask for. She’ll do absolutely fine,” he concluded.

Despite being a long-distance relationship, Harry and Meghan seem to make it work just fine since the two are together since May 2016.

Rumors are swirling lately that an engagement is not far away.

Miranda Lambert and Anderson East rumored to get engaged this year

While 2015 was a painful year for Miranda Lambert, 2017 surely looks promising.

Miranda met Anderson a few months after announcing her divorce from country singer Blake Shelton in July 2015.

And while her ex was soon happy in love with fellow ‘The Voice’ coach Gwen Stefani, Miranda met Anderson in September 2015 at a Nashville festival.



According to Us Weekly, East wants to get down on one knee pretty soon.

“He’s crazy about Miranda and she’s so smitten with him as well,” a friend revealed. “Their friends can definitely see them getting engaged in the near future.”

“They love to play music together, drink, have fun and hang out … He’s so attentive to her and is always playing her compliments. They just balance each other out so well,” the source adds.

So it seems that an engagement is just around the corner.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle head to Africa to celebrate actress’ 36th birthday

Rumors of a marriage proposal won’t cease until the news is official.

The Sun reports that the couple has left London for a stay in Africa for a memorable safari.

The media is also speculating that during this romantic journey the royal, 32, could pop the question to the actress, who turned 36 on August 4.

Harry has chosen Africa as a destination for a romantic holiday because he has worked extensively with local associations working for the protection of endangered species and he hopes to share his passion with Meghan.



“Harry has been planning this holiday for a long time,” a source cited by the publication says. “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. Who knows what will happen when they’re watching a sensational African sunset together? Maybe he’ll get down on one knee. Harry regards Africa as his spiritual home and has often talked of how he can get away from it all there.”

The insider adds: “Obviously he wants to show Meghan what an amazing place it is and create new memories together. Harry’s done a lot of conservation work in Africa with endangered el­e­phants and black rhinos and he’ll show them to the woman he wants to marry.”

 

Photos of the two on the airport tarmac showed that they were visibly happier than ever.

“It’s fitting that the spectacular safari started on her birthday — what a way to impress a girl! He’ll make this a holiday she’ll never forget and perhaps she’ll come back with a ring on her finger,” the source added.

Prince William chose Africa too when he decided to ask Kate Middleton to marry him in October 2010.

Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton aren’t expecting twins, report says

A new tabloid claims that the two are about to become parents.

OK! magazine’s cover story exclaims, “Gwen & Blake Twins! Miracle Babies At 47!” The article alleges that besides the rumored wedding, the pair is now excited about the new pregnancy.

However, the publication doesn’t appear to be reporting news based on facts, but merely speculations, as one “insider” says, “Word is [twins] run in her family, on her dad’s side, and friends are saying she’s been talking constantly about Beyonce’s pregnancy and wanting to reach out to her for advice. People are starting to put two and two together.”



However, Gossip Cop denies these claims and points to the fact that OK! magazine often publishes contradicting stories.

Last year the publication reported that the couple was expecting “miracle babies,” and claimed “they’ve already chosen the names.”

In addition a rep for Stefani denied the allegations to Gossip Cop, simply saying “It is not true.”

Donald Trump announces ban on transgender people from serving in US military

In a series of tweets, the American president announced on Wednesday that transgender people could no longer join the military.

“After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military,” Trump tweeted.

“Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail. Thank you,” he said.

During his presidential campaign, Donald Trump repeatedly showed his support for LGBT individuals.



This isn’t the first measure regarding transgender people that he announces since he joined the White House in January.

The Republican president abrogated in February the measures taken by his predecessor Barack Obama to allow, for example, transgender people to go to the bathrooms of their choice.

The decision has raised a wave of protests in the United States, notably in Times Square, New York.

According to a source cited by E! News the lovebirds have been “total homebodies” since she arrived at the palace.

“They’ve just been chilling at home,” the source said. “There’s always someone watching or trying to get pics when they go out that they’re pretty happy just staying in and doing nothing. They like to cook, watch movies and that kind of thing.”

The same insider revealed that the pair watched Disney’s Moana together the last time Meghan was at the palace.

The duo is rarely seen in public together but they did make an official appearance as a couple at Pippa’s wedding to James Matthews in May.

Rumors about the dress that will be worn by the bride are going rampant, with bets on designer Giles Deacon after being seen visiting her home with a collection of designs last November.



According to E! News, a source close to Deacon revealed that the design is “very simple, elegant and it’s all handmade,” and that “very few people have seen the finished thing.”

Last month, when asked about the possibility of designing the gown, he told HELLO! Fashion, “I can never really comment on rumors. Until things are confirmed, it’s just rumors.”

The same source informed that the future bride has had her dress taken in five times due to her weight loss over the past six months.

As for the reception, the same publication reports that the couple has chosen the Middleton family’s manor in Bucklebury, Berkshire.
