Kate, Wills and Harry were all together for a public engagement today, and well, the press pack who covers the royal family were not impressed.
The trio were out and about in London today (Kate in a new Erdem dress, FYI) to lend support to the HeadsTogether campagin, a mental health advocacy cause they've had a history of championing together.
On this occasion, however, none of the Windsor crew bothered to acknowledge the group of journalists who make a profession out of covering them, causing The Daily Express's royal reporter, Richard Palmer, to send this series of tweets:
My phone died just as William, Kate and Harry arrived at the ICA. William noticeably blanked us all from two feet away. Charming. 😂— Richard Palmer (@RoyalReporter) January 17, 2017

The royal press pack has decided that part of having a national conversation about mental health should involve saying hello to people.— Richard Palmer (@RoyalReporter) January 17, 2017

The reason might surprise you.
Last night, Kim Kardashian and her little sister Kendall Jenner stunned when they were spotted on the streets of New York looking like they were headed to the Met Gala.
But here's the thing: they were headed to the Met Gala – or were pretending to be, at least.
Apparently, the stylish celeb sisters were filming a cameo for the upcoming Ocean's 8 movie strarring Sandra Bullock, Anne Hathaway and Rihanna, among others. They're reportedly set to appear in a Met Gala scene, but we'll have to wait until 2018 to watch their big-screen debut.
Kim wore a sheer gown and furry topper from Givenchy's Fall 2010 Couture collection. Practically vintage!
Kendall went for a lacy gown by Elie Saab from the Spring 2016 Couture runway.
The Louis Vuitton Silver Lockit necklace
In 2016, Louis Vuitton partnered with UNICEF to help vulnerable children around the world. This year, as a promise to children affected by disease, natural disasters and conflict, Louis Vuitton designed the Silver Lockit pendant ($600) and bracelet ($500), available at Louis Vuitton stores worldwide and online. For each sale of the Silver Lockit, $200 will be donated to UNICEF. A single donation can provide six First Aid kits, 45 mosquito nets or 25 fleece blankets.
Louis Vuitton also kicked off the #MAKEAPROMISE campaign. Inspired by childhood "pinkie promises," the brand is encouraging others to snap a promise of their own on social media. On January 12, Louis Vuitton will host the first #MAKEAPROMISE Day at stores around the world (including Toronto's Bloor Street location) to raise funds and awareness for the campaign. To date, Louis Vuitton has raised $2.5 million for UNICEF initiatives.
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.
