Published

on

Jennifer Aniston’s fans have been left “screaming” with joy after the actress was pictured with ex-husband Justin Theroux during a table read of 80s sitcom, Facts Of Life.

 

 

The friendly exes were snapped by Scandal star Kerry Washington, leaving fans seriously excited about the project. Jennifer, 52, looked gorgeous in a black lace-up top as she posed for a selfie with Kerry. Meanwhile, screenwriter and producer Justin, 50, struck a pose alongside Jennifer’s good friend and her The Switch co-star, Jason Bateman.

Alongside a series of behind-the-scenes photos shared on Instagram, Kerry wrote: “LIVE from the cast & producer dinner on Saturday night! Don’t miss this cast recreating @thenormanlear’s classic sitcoms Facts Of Life & Diffrent Strokes! Tonight! #LiveInFrontOfAStudioAudience.”

Jennifer’s fans were loving the candid images, with one penning: “Made my day” and another writing: “I’m screaming”.

A third declared: “JASON JUSTIN AND JEN MY HEART IS GONNA EXPLODE” while another simply wrote: “Jen and Justin” alongside a number of love hearts.

The Friends favourite is starring as Blair Warner in the Facts Of Life remake while Justin is taking on producing duties.

Justin and Jennifer, who fell for each other on the set comedy Wanderlust in 2011, tied the knot in 2015. The pair have remained close since announcing their split in early 2018.

They said at the time: “In an effort to reduce any further speculation, we have decided to announce our separation.

“This decision was mutual and lovingly made at the end of last year. We are two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple, but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship.”

The Morning Show star has made no secret of the fact she’s still close with her ex, and in August she publicly wished her former husband a happy birthday, posting some sweet pictures of him to ring in the occasion.

“HAPPY BIRTHDAY JT,” she wrote, adding: “Truly one of a kind, LOVE YOU!”

Prince Harry’s New Legal Battle Suggests How Eager He Is For the Queen to Meet His Daughter Lilibet

Published

on

By

Although Prince Harry has made solo trips across the pond to visit with members of the royal family and join them for special events, the Duke of Sussex’s wife, Meghan Markle, and their two children have yet to return to the U.K. But now, it seems, Harry is eager for his family on both sides of the Atlantic to reconnect. After a spokesperson for the Duke of Sussex revealed the lengths to which Harry’s gone to try and secure his family a private security detail for future travels, a new report seems to suggest the Duke of Sussex really wants his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, to meet his 7-month old daughter, Lilibet.

 

 

“The fact he has gone down this legal route to try and secure protection suggests to me that he is desperate and there is a real reason for him to come to the UK,” Ken Wharfe, Princess Diana’s former guard, shared during a panel discussion for the Daily Mail. “He has two children that the Queen hasn’t effectively seen yet,” Wharfe observed. Remember: Meghan and Harry’s son, 2-year-old Archie, was born in the U.K. and we have seen photos when Queen Elizabeth first met the newborn. But since their January 2020 move from the U.K. to Canada and then America, the Queen has not seen Archie and hasn’t even met her namesake, Lilibet, in person.
“The very fact he has made this noise with the British Government to secure protection suggests to me that he is going to make a real effort to come back here,” Wharfe continued. “I think we will see him return this year, for the Platinum Jubilee.” While the queen’s official celebration for her Platinum Jubilee will be this February, there will also be days-long festivities this coming June, to which Meghan and Harry might have an invite.
The news of Harry’s ongoing battle to try and retain some security for his family came out last week, and now it’s a lot more clear why that element is so essential to have during the Duke of Sussex’s potential next visit with his family. We can only imagine that Harry is going to such lengths because time is of the essence and reuniting members of his family is important to him. Like Wharfe, we can only hope that arrangements where everyone feels safe can be made so that Harry and his family can have a proper reunion.
The fraught relationship between the Cambridges and the Sussexes has been heavily scrutinized for the past few years. But we’ve never had quite a clearer look at the relationship between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and Prince William and Kate Middleton, until now. Longtime royal writer Christopher Andersen takes fans into the intimate conversations and exchanges between these two powerful couples in Brothers & Wives: Inside the Private Lives of William, Kate, Harry, and Meghan, illustrating what was lost, gained, and what might be found as the next generation of the royal family embraces the future.
