Signs of a royal rapprochement! After weeks of understandable tension following the news that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are intending to step down from their royal duties, it appears that relations between the top members of the royal family are thawing.

Despite her reported disappointment over their decision, Queen Elizabeth II told Harry he will “always be welcomed back” to the royal family. The Duke of Sussex met with his grandmother for a fireside lunch of poached salmon and salad, before a tea of scones and cucumber sandwiches, and a rousing heart-to-heart, The Sun reports. 

It was the “first time the Queen has had the chance to talk to Harry on his own and really find out what his plans are,” a royal source told the paper. “It was a much more relaxed environment and they were both able to speak their mind.”

Still, the Queen is determined that the pair will not be able to profit from their royal status, but, she told him he was “much loved and will always be welcomed back.”

A final sticking point for the Queen, however, is access to their 9-month-old Archie. He will reportedly remain in Canada when the Sussexes visit the U.K. this month.

Kim Kardashian is defusing any drama around her daughter North’s performance at Kanye West’s Yeezy show. Her performance went viral, but some saw similarities between her song and the young YouTube sensation ZaZa’s hit “What I Do.”

ZaZa’s parents hit up the ’Gram, posting videos of performances by both youngsters. They wrote: “In July of 2019, ZaZa & her dad went into the studio for the ultimate experience! To finally begin making the music she wanted to make. What @kimkardashian (Kanye west) are doing with their daughter… with the inspiration of ZaZa & our family in mind is okay… we not mad BUT PLS SHOW LOVE AND SUPPORT TO THE ORIGINAL FIRST!!! We admire Kanye west, and adore his journey. However, we don’t wanna feel like our daughter’s journey in the world of entertainment is being STIFLED.”

Kim saw the post and apparently agrees. She responded: “We love you, North is a huge fan and records in the studio all the time with her dad and is inspired by ZaZa and loves Lay Lay too! Today’s performance of North’s remix of ZaZa’s song was something she asked to do at the last minute and a complete surprise. I didn’t mean to not give credit where credit was due. Would love for the girls to meet soon.”

ZaZa’s parents seemed satisfied, writing: “it’s always always love! Would enjoy getting girls together. Let’s make it happen ASAP”.

Kim then sent out a follow-up tweet: “I’m so proud of my Northie!!!!!! Her 1st performance had me in tears! She had an impromptu performance on stage at her dads Yeezy Season 8 fashion show! Shout out to Zaza!!! @redcarpetZaZa North hopes you like the remix!!!”

STATIONS: Please note the following story contains language that could be considered offensive to your audience.

Can you imagine hating your husband before meeting him? Sophie Turner, 24, reveals the rocky beginning to her relationship with Joe Jones, 30, whom she is now married to and (reportedly) expecting a child with.

In a cover story for Elle, the Game of Thrones star reveals she deeply resented Jonas and his brothers before she fell in love: “My friends and I were not Jonas Brothers fans. There was this band in the U.K. called Busted. They had a hit called ‘Year 3000.’ It was amazing, and we were huge Busted fans. Then the Jonas Brothers covered the song and made it massive. And Busted broke up. We thought it was all the Jonas Brothers’ fault. So we hated them.”


When friends tried to set her up with Jonas, she was not interested. But when he slipped into her DMs, she relented … somewhat. 

She says: “I was living with my friends in Camden, in a really rough flat — people were always climbing in and out of the windows. When I told my friends, they were like, ‘That’s hilarious. You have to do it! And you have to text us everything he says.'”

Turner recalls: “I expected him to show up with security and everything. I thought, ‘He’s gonna be such a d**k.’ I brought all my guy friends to come with me to meet him, because in the back of my mind I still worried that he could be a catfish — or I don’t know what. I just wanted my guy friends with me. I had my rugby boys. I was safe.”

They met in a rough bar: “It was just this local s***ty bar, dirty, with great music and people throwing up everywhere. It was that kind of place. Kind of like the worst, but also kind of the best. He didn’t bring security. He brought a friend, and they drank just as hard as the rest of us. I remember the two of us spending only a couple of minutes on the dance floor, and then we just found a space far in the corner and we just talked. We talked for hours, and hours, and hours. And I was, like, not bored. It wasn’t contrived. It wasn’t small talk — it was just so easy. And soon we were, like, inseparable. I went on tour with him.”


She gushes: “With Joe, I always felt like I was the one who was punching, like, way above my league. And I still feel like that. He’s so handsome, talented, funny, charismatic. I’m really lucky to be with him and have someone like him want to be around me and spend time with me.” 

And she also loves hanging with sister-in-laws Priyanka Chopra, Nick Jonas‘ wife, and Danielle Jonas, Kevin Jonas‘ wife. 

“It’s also nice to have built-in girlfriends who are actually really cool, who I can hang out with and we can really talk to each other about, like, how crazy the boys’ lives are,” she says. “We can relate on so many different levels. It’s like, thank God, because you never know [about your in-laws]. It’s like we’re all one big family, because the boys are best friends.”
