So Meghan Markle met Duchess Kate and Princess Charlotte last week! And like any woman keen to make a good impression on potential in-laws, Meg did not arrive empty handed.
The 35 year old kinda-Torontonian gave Kate, whose 35th birthday was last week, a "leather-bound dream diary"...or at least that's what The Sun newspaper is reporting.
The paper does not elaborate on what exactly one does with a "dream diary"...but if we were Kate we'd probably fill it with fantasies of a life where the internet didn't explode every time we cut a few layers into our hair.
NB: George would totally have been in on these informal celebrations but unfortunately he had school.
Don't know your TFSA from your RRSP? Confused about whether you should save or pay back your debt? Trying to save for the future but feel like you never have anything left over after your bills, bills, bills?
Us too. Which is why we turned to finance expert and Amex spokesperson Rubina Ahmed-Haq for a little personal finance question-and-answer session.
Kate Middleton wasn't holding back on the real talk on her first public appearance of 2017.
Visiting a treatment centre for parents with personality disorders, the Duchess of Cambridge was overheard telling one of the women receiving help:
"Parenting is tough," she said. "And with the experiences you've all witnessed, to do that on top of your own anxieties, and the lack of support you also received as mothers... I find it extraordinary how you've managed actually."
She also mentioned elsewhere that before arriving at the centre she'd just left "a room of six under threes" which we're taking to mean Princess Charlotte had the crew over for brunch and a marathon of Paw Patrol.
PS. That's a brand new Eponine coat K. Middy's wearing, FYI, which can be yours for around $2500 CAD.

Canadian beauty giant M.A.C Cosmetics has teamed up with Canadian musician Kiesza for a four-piece makeup collection. Two of the products, Big Brow Pencil in Cork and Liquidlast Liner in Point Black, are the singer's longtime favourite from the brand. The lip products, a Vamplify Lip Gloss and lipstick, are both '90s-esque "vampy brown" shades – a throwback to the era when the company began it's meteoric rise – and feature prominently in her new work. "My passion for music translated well into my makeup collaboration," explains the Calgary-born artist. "So much so that my Lipstick in Dearly Beloved is also the name of my new single and I’m wearing the shade in my new music video."

"Makeup serves the same purpose as fashion to me," says Kiesza. "It's a form of expression that allows me to display externally, what I'm feeling beneath the surface. It's like an extension of my personality. My face and body become the canvas as I turn myself into my own ever-changing works of art. As I wander through each day, the world is my gallery."
The collection launches in-store a month today, on February 9th.
