Josh & Anna Duggar Make Rare Public Appearance Together: See? We’re Totally Still Married!

Folks, no matter where you fall on the political spectrum, it’s been a difficult few weeks news-wise.

And now, we might all be forced to endure another public spectacle that no one asked for or expected …

We’re talking, of course, about a Josh Duggar comeback.

Yes, if you’re a Duggar aficionado you might have noticed a lot more Josh in your life lately.

And, like everything else the Duggars do, that’s 100 percent by design.

For years, there have been rumors of Jim Bob and Michelle helping their son to return to public life, and now it seems it’s actually happening.

Perhaps they’ve been emboldened by the current political climate, or perhaps they simply feel enough time has passed that fans will have forgotten the severity of Josh’s sex crimes.

Whatever the case, the effort to rebuild Josh’s public image and welcome him back into the Duggar media empire has begun in earnest.

It started with Josh appearing in several Duggar Facebook posts back in September.

It continued as Josh and Anna celebrated the 10-year anniversary of their engagement this month — as though that’s actually something people celebrate.

Those festivities prompted rumors that Josh and Anna’s marriage is a sham, as Anna appeared undeniably miserable in all of the accompanying pics.

So that was an unexpected bump in the road of Josh’s recovery, but Jim Bob is every bit the PR genius that Kris Jenner is, so he was well-prepared for the inevitable rumors that Josh and Anna are headed for divorce.

As In Touch Weekly reports, longtime Duggar family friend Josie Bates married Kelton Balka this week.

The Bates are reality “stars” in their own right (though not nearly as famous as the Duggars), so this qualified as a public event.

And that makes it the first time Josh and Anna have attended a non-family related public event since he was embroiled in multiple consecutive sex scandals back in 2015.

So you can bet it won’t be long before Josh starts making appearances on Counting On again.

Will Duggar fans turn their backs on the family in protest?

We’d like to think so, but something tells us that won’t be the case.


Meghan Markle Pregnant? Latest Appearance Sparks Fresh Round of Rumors

Could it be true?

Might it finally be the case?

Do we at last have a reason to celebrate?

These are the questions being posed by Royal Family fans around the Internet right about now, as a new round of Meghan Markle pregnant rumors are spreading throughout social media. 

The speculation is nearing an all-time high after the Duchess of Sussex attended the 100 Days to Peace Gala in London on Thursday, with all eyes fixated on her blue bespoke Jason Wu dress.

It’s a beautiful number, about that there is no doubt.

But was it covering an even more beautiful baby bump?

Based on the type of gown Markle was donning, along with the position of her hands at times and the possible protrusion of her stomach, this is what some folks now believe.

“I have a feeling Meghan Markle is pregnant,” wrote on random individual, while another noted that the former actress appears to have “glowing” skin and shinier hair than usual.

Those would both be signs of pregnancy.

And while it’s pretty much impossible to figure out such a status based on a handful of photos, we have to admit:

We sort of see where these folks are coming from.

We’re not saying Markle is pregnant for certain.

But we’ve heard more outlandish claims based on far less revealing photos.

For whatever it’s worth, Markle’s awful father has said multiple times of late that she and Prince Harry want to start a family in the near future.

There have been tabloid covers left and rght ever since the stars got married in May that alleged a child was on the way.

Heck, sometimes there’s been talk of TWO kids being on the way.

But an Us Weekly insider says folks should slow their pregnancy role in this case.

We’re not sure if this person knows anything for absolute certain, but this is what the source tells the magazine:

“Chalk this pregnancy speculation to an unflattering dress and wind.

“Meghan and Harry have a busy rest of the year. They are excited to start a family but have always wanted to focus the first year of marriage on their official work and starting to bring awareness to causes close to them.

“That is their main focus before starting a family.”

Fans do need to remember that the couple has not even been married for six months.

It does seem very likely that they will be parents at some point, but that point may be the year 2020 or 2021. Perhaps even 2022.

They are not in any rush, even if the desire is very much there.

“I’ve longed for kids since I was very, very young,” Harry told ABC News in May 2012, adding at the time:

“I’m waiting to find the right person, someone who is willing to take on the job.”

We think he found that person.

But when their lives calm down a bit and they have more time to plan out their future, that’s when we’re guessing the unprotected Royal pounding will begin.

Meghan Markle Makes First Official Appearance as The Duchess of Sussex!

The Royal Wedding may be over, but the Royal Life has only just begun for Meghan Markle.

Mere days after she captured the heart of a nation by exchanging vows with Prince Harry, Markle made her first official appearance.

Not as Meghan Markle, of course. But as The Duchess of Sussex.

Equipped with this new title and the perfect look to go along with it, Markle attended a 70th birthday party in honor of her father-in-law, Prince Charles.

He is also the man who walked Meghan down the aisle last Saturday after Meghan’s own father fell victim to some health problems.

Prince Harry and his lovely wife arrived at Buckingham Palace in London on Tuesday afternoon to attend a garden party for the former’s dad, a gathering that caused the newlyweds to postpone their honeymoon.

It remains unclear exactly where the couple will vacation when they do finally get away from it all, but most Royal Sources assume it will be somewhere in Africa.

For this festive occasion, Harry went with a classic black suit over a white button-down shirt and a blue necktie.

Markle, whose fashion will now be scrutinzed for the rest of her life, donned a pale pink hat and a blush-colored Goat dress with sheer detailing.

She styled her brunette hair in a chic side chignon.

In photos from the party, Markle is seen sharing a laugh Charles and with Charles and Duchess Camilla, as over 6,000 people actually attended this celebration.

Prince Charles does not turn 70 until November 14, but this event served to honor patronage, military affiliations and the charities he supports.

The gathering also recognized the emergency personnel who responded to the terror attack at Ariana Grande’s concert at the Manchester Arena, which took place exactly one year ago on Tuesday.

Such an awful tragedy.

In the days since the wedding, Prince Charles has received heaps of praise in the British press for the welcome he offered to Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland.

At one point, he was seen taking Doria’s hand in the chapel when she was overcome with the emotion of the big day.

Later, he walked with her as he departed the chapel alongside his wife.

Harry and Meghan, of course, tied the knot in front of approximately 600 guests at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle on Saturday, May 19.

Later that night, they celebrated at a private reception – hosted by Charles – with about 200 of their close friends and family members.

They haven’t said anything in public yet about the wedding, but the newlyweds did pose for this gorgeous photos shortly after they made their union official:

Simply breathtaking, isn’t it?

“The couple will be going on honeymoon, but not straightaway,” said Kensington Palace spokesman Jason Knauf, adding:

“They will have their first engagement as a married couple in the week after the wedding.”

At some point, we’d also have to imagine Markle and Harry sit down for a joint interview as a married couple.

Until then, we’ll just need to be content with the many photos and videos from the Royal Nuptials, some of which we’ve shared shared below.
