a princess at preschool!

SHE HAD WARM TIGHTS, A BRAND new backpack and the perfect pose: yes, Princess Charlotte, 2, was ready for her first day at Willcocks Nursery School on Jan. 8. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge hand-picked the school, which is near the family’s Kensington Palace home in London, and it’s “absolutely lovely,” says the mother of a former student. “It is friendly and quiet.” The little princess, who speaks Spanish with her nanny, Maria Turrion Borrallo, will attend the school full-time. “She’s very sweet and very confident—she’s always chatting away!” says a source. “She is so polite but also fun and energetic.” And, the source adds, “She has beautiful manners.” Like her brother George, 4, she’s poised to be a big sibling with the arrival of royal baby No. 3 in…

famous fan!

TURNS OUT BRAD PITT IS A BIG FAN of the Mother of Dragons. During the 7th Annual Sean Penn & Friends Haiti Rising Gala in Los Angeles on Jan. 6, the father of six, 54, pledged to pay $120,000 (all figures in $US) for the chance to watch Game of Thrones with actress Emilia Clarke. While Pitt was initially on his phone when the auction began, once the auctioneer offered up the chance to watch GoT with the 31-year-old actress, the War Machine actor snapped to attention and began enthusiastically clapping. The auction—which began at $20,000—got even more heated as Pitt announced that he would pay $80,000 for the prize. “Just because it’s Brad Pitt doesn’t mean that you can’t bid against him!” said the auctioneer. “Emilia was covering her…

gwyneth paltrow why i’m remarrying

GWYNETH PALTROW’S pals knew the Oscar winner and Goop mogul’s romance with Glee and American Horror Story producer Brad Falchuk was serious. But when it came to how serious, Paltrow, 45, was coy. No more: the star confirmed her engagement to Falchuk, 46, in the Jan. 8 issue of her own Goop magazine. “I have decided to give it a go again,” she said. “Not only because I believe I have found the man I was meant to be with, but because I have accepted the soul-stretching, pattern-breaking opportunities that (terrifyingly) are made possible by intimacy.” It’s the second time around for Paltrow, who “uncoupled” from rock star Chris Martin, the father of her children, Apple, 13, and Moses, 11, in 2014 after 11 years of marriage. Falchuk has also been…

After spending Christmas in Sydney, Phillips, 36, Tindall, 39, and their daughter, Mia, 3, headed to the Queensland racing carnival where the equestrian mum-to-be chose caution over her sporting passion, opting out of the polo game (last year she fell off her horse during the match, just two weeks after her miscarriage was revealed). With her baby bump showing beneath a lacy summer dress, a glowing Phillips—the Queen’s granddaughter—cosied up to her husband, who also kept it casual in shorts and straw hat. Last…

cornelia frances my greatest battle

SHE MADE HER career in television playing formidable women prepared to take on any battle, but actress Cornelia Frances is now waging the fight of her life—against cancer. Frances, 76, a regular on Home and Away, was diagnosed a year ago with bladder cancer, which later spread to her hip and intestine. Just when she appeared to have turned a corner with her health, a new spot was discovered on her left lung three months ago. “So its all a waiting game right now,” Frances tells WHO from her Sydney home. “This is an ongoing battle—I have more scans and more treatments. Then we have to wait to see what the results are to determine if I need to go back on radiation.” British-born Frances established herself in the Australian TV landscape…
