how meghan is getting ready

As the myriad wedding plans fall into place ahead of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s big day, the bride-to-be continues to immerse herself in the intricate details of her fairytale wedding, delighting one local musician by personally calling with a request that he perform at the nuptials. “I was bowled over when Ms Markle called me to ask if I would play during the ceremony,” said 19-year-old cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason. “And, of course, I immediately said, ‘Yes.’ What a privilege to be able to play the cello at such a wonderful event. I can’t wait!” The personal invitation from the 36-year-old actress is yet another example of the generational change shaping the House of Windsor. “Meghan is a sign of the future,” royal biographer Andrew Morton, author of Meghan: A Hollywood…

Capt. Thomas Mountain has been perfecting the Household Cavalry’s royal salute in anticipation of performing on the steps of St George’s Chapel when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle emerge as husband and wife. “We punch our sword out to the right, bring it all the way across until it is back in front of our face, and then lower it,” says Mountain, 28, who will rise at 5 AM to prep himself. “It’s going to be immense, phenomenal.” Meghan has been meeting with her bridal party and designers in London, while Harry is “exceptionally happy, extremely excited,” says a friend. He’s not alone. Says Mountain: “The sense of drama is building. It’s palpable.” THE CHURCH Former royal press secretary Dickie Arbiter told Sunday Night he would wager £100 on the newlyweds kissing…

SINCE ANNOUNCING HER SPLIT FROM HUSBAND Justin Theroux on Feb. 15, Jennifer Aniston “is doing well,” a source tells WHO. “She’s keeping busy and moving on with her life. Her friends always invite her out and to parties. She has a very caring group of friends that take care of her.” On April 22, she arrived solo to friend Jimmy Kimmel’s 1-year-old son Billy’s star-studded birthday bash in Los Angeles, minutes after Theroux, 46, had made his exit. Aniston, 49, has kept a low profile since the end of her two-year marriage. She stepped out for Gwyneth Paltrow’s engagement party on April 16, and on April 19 made her first public appearance at a WE day event in LA. Three days after Kimmel’s party she was spotted in New York for…

back together

IT MIGHT FEEL LIKE ONLY FIVE minutes ago that they split up (it was actually about seven weeks) but model Gigi Hadid and her boyfriend of two years, singer Zayn Malik, couldn’t make their split stick. The couple were spotted kissing on the street in New York on April 28, with Malik’s shaved head revealing a large tattoo. “Gigi and I had an incredibly meaningful, loving and fun relationship and I have a huge amount of respect and adoration for Gigi as a woman and a friend. She has such an incredible soul,” Malik, 25, tweeted in March, calling the split a “difficult decision.” Hadid, 23, had posted a heartfelt statement: “I’m forever grateful for the love, time and life lessons Z and I shared. I want nothing but the best for…
