The past month has been a whirlwind of Disney-related nostalgia as the brand’s iconic mouse is turning 90 this year. From super cool Vans’ collaborations through to an omega nostalgic 90s Flashback line, music lovers are the next to get their much-needed dose of nostalgia with a pair of sick headphones. Audiophiles, steel yourselves — Beats by Dre have just launched the ultimate pair of headphones for Disney lovers and we’re totally in love.

The new headphones have been created especially for Mickey Mouse’s 90th anniversary and unsurprisingly, he’s plastered all over the wireless headphones. Designed in a cool grey and with big comfy cushioned ear muffs, you’ll find Mickey striking a pose across the band looking ready to bust a move as you bust out some tunes.

This is the important reason why Kate Middleton hasn’t met her new nephew yet

This is the important reason why Kate Middleton hasn’t met her new nephew yet


And we kind of get it…

REX

The Duchess of Cambridge’s past year has undoubtedly been busier than most and she has had a lot on her plate.

Giving birth to a baby prince and introducing him to the world hours later in heels and perfect make up would be enough. But she has also had her wedding anniversary, the Queen’s two birthdays and not one but two royal weddings to prepare for.

Not to mention, her sister Pippa Middleton’s pregnancy, with the 35-year-old giving birth to a baby boy just this week.

It’s hardly surprising therefore that the Duchess of Sussex and her nephew haven’t yet met.

Because, well, she’s very busy.

Since coming back from maternity leave this month, Kate has had function after function, in and out of meeting with charity initiatives, as well as looking after her three children – including a newborn.

And with Pippa still residing in the Lindo Wing where she gave birth to the currently unnamed newborn on Monday, it makes sense that Kate would wait a couple of days to pay her sister and nephew a visit.

We can’t wait to see the family photos when she does – and hear the baby name!

Congratulations again to Pippa and James!

Meghan Markle made these very special presents to give out on tour

Meghan Markle made these very special presents to give out on tour


We can’t deal.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have only been on tour for a matter of days and already they’ve made more of a storm than virtually any royal on any royal tour ever.

From the announcement of their Spring baby and their sweet public displays of affection under the umbrella to the viral videos of them hugging children, the now Duke and Duchess of Sussex are making a very good impression.

But being them, they even went one step further, with Meghan actually hand-making gifts for the people the couple were set to visit.

What did she make? Banana bread.

That’s right. She may be Duchess of Sussex (and about four months pregnant) but the 37-year-old is still said to have stayed up on one of her first nights in Australia to bake gifts for a family that were hosting them on their farm in Dubbo.

According to Meghan if you go to someone else’s house you should always take something with you, with the Duchess bringing a tin of Fortnum & Mason Royal Blend tea with the banana bread.

But according to Harry, Meghan was ‘worried that she’s put too many bananas in it’, something he insisted wasn’t possible, announcing: ’There are never too many bananas.’

Meghan, please can you make us some banana bread too?

And it’s too much.

Ever since Prince Harry showed off his parenting skills, jokily scolding a little boy for pulling his wife’s hair and then catching two-year-old Emily Henson stealing his popcorn at last year’s Invictus Games, fans have been waiting for the 33-year-old Prince to become a father himself.

And now it seems the time is here.

Yes, after tying the knot in May, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced this week that they were expecting a baby, arriving in Spring 2019.

The news broke soon after the royal couple’s arrival in Australia for their royal tour, with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex reportedly telling the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, Prince William and Kate Middleton at Princess Eugenie’s wedding.

Following the official statement however, made by Kensington Palace, the future parents had not yet spoken out about the news themselves. That is, until now.

While visiting a family in Dubbo, New South Wales, Meghan is said to have opened up about her pregnancy with mother Emily Carroll, who has 13-month-old daughter Ruby.

‘Meghan told me that she’s feeling pretty good so far, which is great, and that she’s running on adrenalin,’ Emily explained. ‘She said they’re doing 76 engagements in 16 days, with maybe one rest in the middle.

Emily continued: ‘She’s made for this royal business, isn’t she? They’re both great with kids.’

But it was Prince Harry’s words however that got everyone excited, with the now Duke of Sussex referencing the future arrival during a speech while the couple were in Australia.

‘We also genuinely couldn’t think of a better place to announce the, er, upcoming baby,’ he told the room. ‘Whether it’s a boy or a girl. So thank you very, very much.’

These two!

Prince Harry’s black ring is actually a super millennial piece of kit

Prince Harry’s black ring is actually a super millennial piece of kit


It’s more than just a fashion statement

Prince Harry’s not averse to flashing some bling. It was revealed a little while ago that he would break with royal tradition and wear a wedding band unlike other members of his family. Well, he’s added a brand new accessory to his wardrobe and Prince Harry’s black ring has been garnering a lot of attention on the internet; mostly because nobody knows what the heck it is. Is it a present from Meghan Markle? A symbol for the Invictus Games? Well, you’re wrong on both counts it turns out. It’s actually a nifty piece of tech.

PEOPLE revealed that Prince Harry’s mystery ring is actually a sleep and fitness tracker by a brand called Oura. The brand describes it as a ‘secret weapon for personal improvement’ and more specifically, it’s a super high tech ring that tracks everything from REM sleep to your daily calorie burn. According to the site, the deceptively simple ring contains sensors attuned to your body temperature, optical pulse and more.

It’s believed that Prince Harry is wearing Oura’s Heritage ring in black, though the ring is also available in matte black stealth version and silver. There’s even a rose gold version, which speaks strongly to our millennial hearts. If you’re keen on jumping on the Prince Harry bandwagon, it’s available below.

It’s not a massive surprise that Prince Harry’s chosen a health-conscious bit of kit, as he’s known for his love of sport. In fact, one of his greatest projects as a royal is a sporting event called the Invictus Games; a competitive event for injured servicemen and women.

He’ll actually be returning to Sydney at the end of the month to kick off this year’s iteration of the games along with Meghan Markle, so keep an eye out for that Oura ring as he races round the stadium.

Besides helping him keep pace with the Invictus athletes, the ring will also have one awesome benefit come spring next year when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s bundle of joy arrives. Namely, it could be instrumental in helping him get some much needed shuteye. New babies are adorable, but RIP your regular sleep cycle.

And we love her even more.

Princess Charlotte might only be three years old, but she’s already one of the most popular members of the royal family, known for her signature sass.

And whether it’s debuting her royal wave to photographers on the way to meeting her newborn brother, attacking a balloon wall on camera or telling the press at Prince Louis’ christening that they weren’t invited, she never fails to be the centre of attention.

This – we hasten to add – is for all the right reasons.

It’s hardly surprising therefore that while taking part in Princess Eugenie’s royal wedding last week as a flower girl, all eyes were on her.

While official photos of the royal wedding flooded the internet last week, Princess Eugenie posted her own photo of the day to her Instagram account, uploading an unseen and candid shot from behind the scenes.

‘Jack and I would like to thank everyone who was involved in making our day so special and for all the wonderful wishes as we start married life together,’ she posted.

But it wasn’t her sweet words that got the internet talking, instead it was her flower girl Princess Charlotte, who can be seen sitting in the centre of the photo making the bride and groom and their bridal party laugh.

Like we needed another reason to love Princess Charlotte.

Angelina Jolie has a new look and she’s unrecognisable

Angelina Jolie has a new look and she’s unrecognisable


Would you have spotted her?

Angelina Jolie is one of the most talked about women in the world, with the public pouring over her latest news and updates from her recent divorce settlement to her latest film roles.

This week however, the 43-year-old has been making headlines for a different reason, changing her signature look and as a result making herself unrecognisable.

That’s right. In the latest photographs of the Maleficent actress, her trademark natural brown locks are nowhere to be seen, with Ange sporting a platinum blonde bouffant instead.

Considering this is the first time that she has been seen with platinum hair since Girl, Interrupted, it’s unsurprising that the photos got the world talking, with people wondering if Angelina was over her natural hair colour.

Instead, it looks like it’s all down to her latest film, Come Away, with the said photos including the rest of her castmates, commemorating the last day of the fantasy movie’s filming.

‘Our film COME AWAY is now in the can!’ posted David Oyelowo, playing Angelina’s onscreen husband in the upcoming live action film. ‘Can’t wait to share this magical reimagining of Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan with you all.’

Angelina and David play the character Alice’s parents, and judging by the latest photo, we’re assuming that Angelina’s character Rose sports a blonde bouffant.

The actress looked so different from normal however that many fans commented their surprise on the Instagram upload.

‘Is that Angelina??’ posted one, while a couple of other users accused the photograph of being photoshopped, commenting: ‘Who has photoshopped Jolie in this pic?’

There isn’t yet a release date for Come Away, but given the fact that they’ve only just finished filming, we imagine that we’ve got some time to wait!

Keira Knightley has banned her daughter from watching these Disney Princess films

Keira Knightley has banned her daughter from watching these Disney Princess films


And we kind of get it.

Keira Knightley may be starring in the upcoming blockbuster, The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, but everyone’s talking about her this month for a different reason – her take on motherhood.

The 33-year-old has spoken candidly about being a mum to three-year-old Edie Knightley Righton, writing her daughter an open letter about the truths of child birth earlier this month.

This week while being interviewed by Ellen DeGeneres, Keira opened up about her take on films, with the actress and her musician partner actually banning their daughter from watching a few Disney films.

We were sceptical, but after hearing her explanation, we get it.

‘She’s banned from seeing certain children’s films,’ Keira explained to the show’s host, before listing the two prohibited classics.

Cinderella,’ she listed. ‘Because she waits around for a rich guy to rescue her. Don’t. Rescue yourself, obviously.’

The second film on the list? The Little Mermaid.

‘The songs are great,’ she explained. ‘But do not give your voice up for a man.’

Although according to Keira, that one’s a bit of a sore spot.

‘This is the one that I’m quite annoyed about because I really like the film. But I’m sticking to it.’

Which films have got the Keira seal of approval?

Frozen, Moana and Finding Dory apparently.

But while they are banning Edie from watching certain films, Kiera stresses that she wants her daughter to pursue any career she likes.

‘She did want to be a dentist which I was super happy about because I thought that would be a stable career,’ Keira announced, explaining that the decision behind it was a Peppa Pig dentist episode.

‘Now she wants to be a Lion,’ Keira continued, ‘Which is slightly problematic but she roars very well. But I am going to support her in anything she wants to do. She’s allowed to do whatever she wants.’

Keira Knightley – motherhood goals.

Samantha Markle’s reaction to Meghan and Harry’s baby news has surprised everyone

Samantha Markle’s reaction to Meghan and Harry’s baby news has surprised everyone


And now no one knows what to think…

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced the news that they were expecting a baby this week, with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex expected to welcome their newborn in the spring of 2019.

‘My warmest congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the happy news that they are expecting a baby in the spring. Wishing them all the best,’ announced Prime Minister Theresa May, while Sadiq Khan made the announcement, ‘On behalf of Londoners, I want to send our heartfelt congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the happy news they are expecting their first child. Congratulations!’

Naturally, the extended family spoke out of their excitement about the future arrival, but it wasn’t just the royals, with Meghan’s estranged relatives from the Markle side also getting involved.

One person to add their voice to the news was Meghan’s estranged half-sister, Samantha Grant, who it seems has never missed an opportunity to bash the former Suits actress, even claiming earlier this year that when their father died, it would be Meghan’s fault.

Following her vicious remarks, Samantha issued a formal (and very dramatic) apology last month but now she has broken her silence, releasing a statement on the royal pregnancy.

‘It just makes everything that happened over the last year disappear,’ Samantha explained of the pregnancy. ‘I want Meghan to be happy and calm and have peace. Everybody needs to be positive.’

She then however continued, referencing her disappointment that the Markle family were left out of the statement by Kensington Palace.

‘I would hope that – for the sake of the baby, the family, the world and my dad – that leaving him out of the statement was not intentional,’ she explained. ‘I hope my dad is included and at a proper time. If he is excluded, I won’t be happy. It is in the best interests of the baby for my dad to be included.’

Well, no one is surprised.

We’ve all been saying this Harry Potter character’s name wrong

We’ve all been saying this Harry Potter character’s name wrong


What?!

Words by Jadie Troy-Pryde

When it comes to Harry Potter, you’re probably pretty confident that you know everything. You’ll be clued up on the Hermione theory, you’ll have read about why Rupert Grint almost quit the movies after Goblet of Fire, and you probably use these inspirational Harry Potter quotes on the regular.

And the real hardcore Potterheads among you will even have stocked up on these Harry Potter baubles, because who doesn’t want a magically dressed Christmas tree?

However, it turns out that we’ve had it all wrong when it comes to one key player in the wizarding world.

Who? Voldemort.

He Who Must Not Be Named has actually been named all wrong, and we had absolutely no idea.

Harry Potter fans will undoubtedly pronounce the ‘t’ at the end of Voldemort because, let’s face it, that’s how they say it in the movies, too.

But it turns out that the ‘t’ is supposed to be silent, making it ‘Vol-de-mor’ instead.

How do we know this? Well, recently List25 tweeted: ‘#DidYouKnow Contrary to popular belief, the ‘t’ at the end of Voldemort is silent. The name comes from the French words meaning ‘flight of death’.’

And J.K. Rowling herself admitted that the villain’s moniker should be said that way.

A fan tweeted: “One piece of Harry Potter trivia I always forget to mention: the ‘t’ is silent in Voldemort.

J.K. then replied: “… but I’m pretty sure I’m the only person who pronounces it that way.”

While this exchange happened back in 2015, people are only just starting to realise that they’ve been saying Voldemort wrong this whole time.

Brb, we’re re-evaluating everything right now.
