Buckingham Palace Breaks Its Silence Over Prince Harry’s Memoir Announcement

Published

on

On Monday, Prince Harry and Penguin Random House broke the news that the Duke of Sussex will be releasing a memoir in late 2022 that will share, “for the very first time, the definitive account of the experiences, adventures, losses, and life lessons that have helped shape him,” per the project’s press release. Buckingham Palace didn’t immediately respond to the news, but the Palace made the rare move of declining to comment to People with on-the-record words rather than silence. Any clarification about the book would be a question for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex,” the Palace said, referring to Meghan and Harry by their titles.

Harry’s memoir will address his time in the royal family, per the release: “Covering his lifetime in the public eye from childhood to the present day, including his dedication to service, the military duty that twice took him to the frontlines of Afghanistan, and the joy he has found in being a husband and father, Prince Harry will offer an honest and captivating personal portrait, one that shows readers that behind everything they think they know lies an inspiring, courageous, and uplifting human story.”

A spokesperson for Harry made it clear to People that the royal family wasn’t blindsided by the news. People was told by the rep that Harry spoke privately with the royal family regarding the book’s publication very recently. The spokesperson added that Harry would not be expected to obtain permission from Buckingham Palace for the project.

In a statement, Harry explained of the memoir: “I’m writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become. I’ve worn many hats over the years, both literally and figuratively, and my hope is that in telling my story—the highs and lows, the mistakes, the lessons learned—I can help show that no matter where we come from, we have more in common than we think. I’m deeply grateful for the opportunity to share what I’ve learned over the course of my life so far and excited for people to read a firsthand account of my life that’s accurate and wholly truthful.”

Harry and Meghan stepped back from their senior royal family roles in January 2020. They made that move permanent earlier this year and now live in Montecito, California, with their two children, two-year-old son Archie and one-month-old daughter Lili. In March, they gave a seismic tell-all interview to Oprah about their experiences as working royal family members.

Among their biggest bombshell claims was that a member of the royal family (not the Queen or Philip) had concerns that their then-unborn son Archie’s skin would be too dark, Meghan revealing that the institution refused to let her seek treatment when she struggled with suicidal ideation, and Harry’s statement that the family has an “invisible contract” with the British tabloids and are scared of them.

The royal family very tersely responded to the interview. Two days after the interview aired, the Palace released a brief statement on behalf of the Queen: “The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Meghan and Harry. The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately. Harry, Meghan, and Archie will always be much loved family members.”

All About “Biles and Chiles”: Simone Biles and Jordan Chiles’s Sweet Friendship

Published

on

Simone Biles’s name has been in the headlines even more than usual this week, after she pulled out of the gymnastics team finals at the Tokyo Olympics to prioritize her mental health.

“Simone Biles has withdrawn from the team final competition due to a medical issue,” USA Gymnastics said in a statement. “She will be assessed daily to determine medical clearance for future competitions.” Her coach later told NBC: “Physically she is fine. But she is done for the night.”

She has since withdrawn from the vault and uneven bars events. Many people—Michelle Obama among them—have backed up Biles’s decision to take care of herself in the face of immense pressure. One of the loudest voices in that large crowd of supporters is Jordan Chiles, Biles’s 20-year-old teammate and best friend, who stepped in for her in the team all-around competition on Tuesday.

“To my best friend, just thinking about everything we have gone through together from us getting mad at each other for no reason to laughing at jokes, to bringing the love of this sport back to me with your help words can’t explain how proud I am of you,” she wrote in an Instagram post this week. “I LOVE YOU and am literally crying just thinking about everything. WE did this together🥺
-love jo🤞🏾💕”

It’s obvious that these two have a strong bond, but their friendship goes far beyond this year’s eventful Olympics. Here, everything you should know about these two Olympic athlete, the way they support each other, and a mentorship story for the ages.

Biles is one of the reasons Chiles is still a gymnast.

As Chiles’s mom, Gina Chiles, told The New York Times in June, by 2018, Chiles had checked out from the sport.” When she finished 11th in the all-around at nationals that year, the athlete began to question whether she should stick with her sport.

“I guess this sport is coming to an end for me because things just aren’t working out for me at all whatsoever,” Chiles told the the Times. “I just wanted to finish high school and go off to college. But then I had a talk with Simone.”

Biles proposed an idea to Chiles: She should come to Biles’s gym, World Champions Centre in Texas, to train with her and her coaches, Cecile and Laurent Landi. That’s exactly what Chiles did. Through spending time with and observing Biles, Chiles began to find the joy in gymnastics again.

“I discovered that gymnastics doesn’t always have to be about strictness and being so hard on yourself and having so much doubt,” she told the Today show. “I actually realized this when I saw Simone compete. She looks like she’s having fun out there, laughing and giggling, and doesn’t look stressed or tired. I was like, ‘You know, I’m going to try that one of these days and see how it turns out.’”

Their friendship grew from there.

“You always have that one person that can change your whole life….. and this my friend is you🥺,” Chiles wrote of her teammate in late June, after U.S. Olympic Team Trials in St. Louis.

Chiles is by her friend’s side as she navigates this Olympics.

While the whole world keeps its eyes on Biles, Chiles has remained a steady support of her friend. While Biles enthusiastically cheers on her teammates from the stands, you’ll never see Chiles too far from her side.

Chiles told Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie about how she supported her friend during her trying week in Tokyo:

“I was there for her, I supported her, I did try to tell her, ‘Look, you know how to do everything, this is you, this is your moment, it’s all up to you,’” Chiles said on July 28.

“I really can’t say a lot because she has to tell her own story, but all I know is I’m going to support her no matter what. I am her teammate, I am her best friend, like she said. This is the moment that I think that I truly realize that I’ve gotten so much closer to her than I really thought. She’s my ride or die. I will forever be by her side.”

The series is said to follow the romance between Anderson and Lee and the whirlwind pace of their marriage. It also focuses on the true story of their famous sex tape. Lee and Anderson made the tape on their honeymoon in 1995, and it was later stolen and distributed online. The series will detail the lawsuit that Anderson and Lee filed against the tape’s distributor, Internet Entertainment Group.

“I’ve never seen it. I made not one dollar. It was stolen property. We made a deal to stop all the shenanigans,” Anderson said on Watch What Happens Live in 2015. “I was seven months pregnant with Dylan [Jagger Lee] and thinking it was affecting the pregnancy with the stress and said, ‘I’m not going to court anymore. I’m not being deposed anymore by these horny, weird lawyer men. I don’t want to talk about my vagina anymore or my public sex — anything.”

Hulu has yet to confirm a release date.

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck Continue Their PDA Tour by Making Out on a Naples Dock

Published

on

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are continuing their summer of PDA—in Italy again. Per TMZ, the newly reunited couple was seen kissing on a dock in Naples, Italy, during their European yacht trip. TMZ says the yacht they’re on costs $1.1 million.

This is hardly the first time Lopez and Affleck have shared PDA on this trip. They recreated the butt-rubbing scene from Jenny From the Block, shared a public Instagram kiss on J.Lo’s 52nd birthday, and made out at a Nerano, Italy restaurant.

“They are having a beautiful trip,” a source told People. “They celebrated Jen’s birthday at a club last night. She looked gorgeous and very happy.”

They also wore peak summer outfits (a red striped bikini top and white culottes for J.Lo and a tie-dye Ralph Lauren polo for Affleck) while on their ultimate summer yacht trip. J.Lo added her gold “Ben” necklace to the look. The custom Foundrae charm necklace was a gift from Affleck to Lopez for her birthday.

“With the custom piece Ben created for Jennifer, it clearly communicated their love, but it’s also a reminder of their capacity for change and growth,” creative director and co-founder Beth Bugdaycay told E!. “For example, one of the medallions he chose represents resilience, which we describe as wild, abundant, and untamed. The blossoms are fed with passion and continue to bloom, even in darkness, against adversity. But we can’t separate the flower from its thorn. The thorn is the risk we assume for something we love, for living life fully without reserve.”
