The Royal Family Has Never Looked This Happy Before

Stodgy? Stoic? Serious?

More like… playful! Fun-loving! And totally adorable!

In a pair of candid new photos, the most prominent members of Great Britain’s Royal Family aim to put to rest all rumors of them as very serious and even unusually cold and distant.

See what we mean right here:

This picture and the one we’ve also shared down below were snapped in the gardens of Clarence House by photographer Chris Jackson.

They were released in honor of Prince Charles‘ 70th birthday on Wednesday and they include pretty much everyone:

Charles, Duchess Camilla and grandkids Prince George and Princess Charlotte are on a wooden bench, comfortable and cozy.

Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan Markle are standing behind them sharing a big hearty laugh… while Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton – who is cradling Prince Louis – are grinning at their side.

This really could be any family on any important occasion, couldn’t it?

We’ve never seen this well-known group looking so candid and relaxed before.

Wrote Jackson as a message along with the images:

“I’ve travelled all over the world photographing the Prince of Wales for the last 15 years from Durbars in Nigeria to the Galapagos Islands, Pakistan, Japan and many more as well as covering numerous domestic Royal Engagements so I was delighted to have been asked to take these official portraits of The Prince surrounded by his family to celebrate the important milestone of his 70th Birthday.

“It was particularly special to capture such an informal and relaxed family portrait over a fun afternoon in the gardens of Clarence House.”

Amidst rumors that Markle is a diva and there’s division within the Royal Ranks, these photographs could not have come out at a better time.

Charles turning 70 years old has placed the once-controversial prince (the dude cheated on Princess Diana!) squarely in the spotlight for the first time in years.

There’s a new documentary coming out about him and a recent screen grab from the program gave us a rare glimpse at the youngest member of his family.

Hello there, Prince Louis!

The Duke of Wales tries to spend as much time as he can with his grandchildren, with his wife saying in the aforementioned documentary of Charles and the young ones around him:

“He will get down on his knees and crawl about with them for hours, you know making funny noises and laughing and my grandchildren adore him, absolutely adore him.

“He reads Harry Potter and he can do all the different voices and I think children really appreciate that.”

William has also said his father is “brilliant” with George, and you can kind of see how close the two are in the first two photos featured here.

Of late, of course, all attention has turned from Kate and William’s kids to the growing tiny person inside of Markle.

She is pregnant, in case you haven’t had an Internet connection or access to a television in many weeks.

Although she and Prince Harry have not yet revealed Markle’s due date, it is widely believed that she’s expected to give birth in early May.

She may even welcome her son or daughter on May 2, which is Princess Charlotte’s birthday, which would just be so darn cute all around. 

We’ll keep fans posted.

In the meantime, how about these glorious Royal Photos, huh?

Never thought we’d see the day where these famous and important folks looked so… normal, you know?


Jill Duggar: PROOF She and Her Family are Broke?!

OK, so we’ve definitely discussed the state of Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard’s finances before.

Many, many times.

Nobody’s trying to be nosy — not any nosier than celebrity gossip tends to be, anyway — but they’ve brought the topic up themselves a lot over the past few years.

And it literally never goes over well.

The thing is that the Duggar family has money, and everybody knows it.

They’ve had their own reality show for the past 10 years — 17 Kids and Counting debuted on TLC in September of 2008.

It eventually became 18 Kids and Counting, then 19 Kids and Counting, but it was cancelled in 2015 after Josh’s molestation scandal.

By the end of that year, however, the first episode of their spin-off, Counting On, aired.

So it’s not like they were ever “out of work” for any real length of time.

Since the whole family has been on popular reality shows for ten years (and counting, get it?), they’re reasonably well off.

Like, they have about eight private planes.

They’re doing all right.

Still, Jill and Derick have gotten into a habit of asking fans for money.

And that’s just not a good look.

Time and time again, they’ve set up GoFundMe pages, asking for donations for their mission trips.

Whenever they got criticism for it — which was every single time they did it — they always defended themselves by saying that missionaries get donations, it’s just a thing that happens.

Which is true, sure, but missionaries are rarely also TV stars.

These days, their family is pretty settled in Arkansas, so they can’t really do such easy money grabs anymore.

… Or can they?!

Alyssa Bates from Bringing Up Bates, that show that’s basically 19 Kids and Counting with a different family, posted a giveaway on her Instagram account on Friday.

The rules of the giveaway were to follow her and then tag three people in the comments.

From those entries, she’d pick 28 people to win a gift card — $ 10 gift cards to Starbucks and Chick-fil-A, and $ 10 iTunes gift cards.

As she explained in the caption on her post, this is just a way for her to “show my appreciation to you guys for your constant love and support.”

You can already see where this is headed, can’t you?

Jill actually entered the giveaway.

She was already following Alyssa, since the Bates and the Duggars are friends.

But she tagged two of her sisters, Jessa and Jinger, as well as her sister-in-law, Anna.

“Hey biz!” she added, using a nickname for Alyssa. “Super nice of you!”

And it’s all just kind of odd.

The giveaway was obviously intended for fans, as most giveaways are.

Surely the vast majority of her followers who have entered it are fans of the show who would appreciate a little treat like this.

Not, you know, people who have been famous for a decade.

Yes, she was fired from the family’s show after Derick’s super weird rants about Jazz Jennings and transgender people in general.

And sure, Derick doesn’t have a job right now, and she’s staying home with the kids while he goes to law school.

But still, the Duggars were able to afford raising 19 children.

And on top of that, they’ve likely dropped a few million dollars just on private planes.

Can Jim Bob really not throw Jill some cash if she wants some Starbucks money that bad?

It’s weird to say, but we kind of hope that Jill just doesn’t understand that this is tacky.

After all, that’s still better than her just being that broke.


Modern Family Kills Off “Major Character” and Fans Are Outraged

Fair warning: this post contains a Modern Family spoiler.

Whether or not it's a major spoiler is a matter of some debate.

Modern Family's co-creator promised that, in Season 10, a character of significance would die.

On Wednesday night's episode, that happened … sort of.

See (and here's the spoiler), the "major character death" was DeDe, Jack's ex-wife, the mother of both Mitchell and Claire.

DeDe is not a main character — she's just related to a bunch of them.

She did not appear in even a guest role in Season 3, Season 5, or Season 6.

Modern Family fans took to Twitter to express their outrage over all of that hype having been built up for nothing.

1. Modern Family killed a character

Don’t worry — it’s not anyone you know. It’s DeDe.

2. Here is DeDe, in case you forgot

Here she stands beside her son and her son-in-law

3. People did a double take

Modern family death reaction tweet 01
When you hear “major character death,” you expect to AT LEAST recognize the name immediately

4. Fans called bull

Modern family death reaction tweet 02
Of course, we’re glad that the lead actors kept their jobs, but still …

5. This is a great reaction image

Modern family death reaction tweet 05
Nobody has time to get worked up over an occasional guest character’s death

6. This person warned their own followers

That’s a spoiler, but maybe not the kind that people cared about

‘Modern Family” Kills off Significant Character on Halloween Episode

Amy Duggar Shades Family Members for Having Kids Too Soon

The last time we wrote about Amy Duggar, we said that her famous family members had just recently allowed her back into their lives.

Such a re-entrance may have been short-lived, however.

Why do we say this?

Because Amy has come out with some serious fire for her supposed loved ones!

Often considered the black sheep of her strict and conservative family, Amy once posed nude on Twitter.

Even worse in the eyes of her cousins, aunts and uncles, Amy has been married for three years — and she has no kids!

Zero. Zilch. None at all.

While this may seem impossible to believe for anyone with the last name Duggar, Amy tells Radar Online that she has a simple explanation for why she and husband Dillon have decided to wait.

“I didn’t want to limit myself by just getting pregnant right off the bat and not exploring the rest of what my life could be,” Duggar says simply.

At least it sounds simple to us.

Plenty of husbands and wives want to travel a bit or just enjoy each other’s company for awhile before their world gets taken over by children.

It’s a reasonable position for anyone to take. Anyone not named Duggar, that is.

As regular Hollywood Gossip readers surely know well, Jinger Duggar, Joy-Anna Duggar and Kendra Duggar ALL gave birth to their first child in 2018.

They each got pregnant basically as soon as they tied the knot and were permitted, per family rules, to engage in intercourse with their significant others.

Duggar females basically exist simply to get married and then to procreate as often as possible.

But Amy is focused on her new clothing boutique at the moment and isn’t desperate to become a mother.

It will almost definitely happen at some point; she just doesn’t understand the immediacy.

“Babies are on our brain for sure,” Amy says of her and her husband.

But she wants to make sure her professional life is in order first and that she is as ready as one can be to take the journey to motherhood before actually doing so.

What a crazy concept, right?!?

“I want to be settled. I think it’s boutique, and then a baby,” said the former reality star, explaining how she wants to successfully launch her business before dedicating herself to a tiny human being.

She also wants to make sure her relationship can handle it.

Having a baby is a really big deal!

It can destroy a marriage if two people are not on the same page.

“I want to have this really great foundation with my husband so that when my baby turns 18 years old, I’m not learning how to love my husband all over again,” says Amy.

We hate to break it to you, Amy, but such logic likely just got you kicked out of the family again.

We’re guessing you’re cool with that, though.


Jinger Duggar Shares Adorable Pics of Her “Little Family,” Melts Fans’ Hearts

Hard to believe it's been three months since Jinger Duggar welcomed her first child.

These days, Jinger and her husband, Jeremy Vuolo, are loving their lives as new parents and sharing every moment of that joy on social media.

Perhaps it's because Jinger and Jeremy live in Laredo, Texas, far away from the rest of the Duggar clan in Arkansas.

Or perhaps it's because Jinger has harbored a lifelong love of photography.

Whatever the reason, the pics of little Felicity just keep coming, and fans can't get enough.

Take a look:

1. Jinger, Jeremy, Felicity
