The entire world mourned the loss of Carrie Fisher when she passed away last December at age 60, and now her cause of death has been revealed. According to a report by People, Carrie died of “sleep apnea and other causes.” The Los Angeles County medical examiner’s full summary of Carrie’s death revealed the Star Wars actress “showed signs of having taken multiple drugs” in addition to having a “buildup of fatty tissue in the walls of her arteries.”
According to the Associated Press, Carrie’s death will remain listed as “undetermined” because investigators were unable to pinpoint an exact cause. Carrie’s 24-year-old daughter, actress Billie Lourd, released a statement to CNN following the medical examiner’s report, writing,
“[She] battled drug addiction and mental illness her entire life. She ultimately died of it. She was purposefully open in all of her work about the social stigmas surrounding these diseases . . . I know my Mom, she’d want her death to encourage people to be open about their struggles. Seek help, fight for government funding for mental health programs. Shame and those social stigmas are the enemies of progress to solutions and ultimately a cure. Love you Momby.”
Among the most admirable and reliable qualities of Bill Maher, the host of HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher,” are his pointed intellect and relentless attention to detail. The man really does his homework.
At least he did before Friday.
In a segment on free speech, Maher demonstrated a remarkable…
Gal Gadot’s husband, Yaron Varsano, is celebrating his wife’s Wonder Woman box-office success with an adorable graphic t-shirt that says it all. Yaron recently uploaded a picture of himself wearing a t-shirt illustrating that even he knows his wife is a real life Wonder Woman. “#mywife #therealwonderwoman ❤️,” he captioned the sweet photo. Gal Gadot appears to approve of his loving gesture, smiling widely in the photo with him and pointing at the illustration of herself. Her smile could also be due to all of the rave reviews Wonder Woman has received or the fact that the film is already slated for a sequel!

Prince George and Princess Charlotte joined their family on the balcony of Buckingham Palace for the annual Trooping the Colour parade in London on Saturday – and true to form, the tiny royals totally stole the show. While checking out the ceremony with their parents, Prince William and Kate Middleton, 3-year-old George and 2-year old Charlotte were caught looking excited, quizzical, and a little unimpressed; George showed off his iconic “over it” face while Dad pointed out the air show, and Charlotte – who made her balcony debut just last year – looked adorable as she stayed close to Mom in their adorable matching pink outfits.
The last time we saw George and Charlotte was just a few weeks ago, when they acted as page boy and flower girl in their aunt Pippa Middleton’s wedding to James Matthews. We’ll likely get to more of the little ones in July, when George celebrates his fourth birthday with official portraits. See more of George and Charlotte’s most adorable moments.
London spared the city from its usual rain for a lovely Trooping the Colour celebration on Saturday. The annual parade – which was held in honor of Queen Elizabeth II’s 91st birthday – featured some pretty cute moments from the royal family as they watched from a balcony at Buckingham Palace above the festivities. Along with the queen and her husband, Prince Philip, Prince William and Kate Middleton brought out their adorable kids, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, to enjoy the morning.
Princess Charlotte made her balcony debut in 2016, and her second appearance did not disappoint. Dressed in the same shade of pink as her mom, she soaked it all in with some pretty hilarious facial expressions, which she no doubt picked up from her older brother. George (who was dressed in a supercute suspender outfit, naturally) continued his tradition of “over it” looks, but couldn’t help but get excited when jets from the Royal Air Force roared by overhead. The littlest royals and their parents were also joined by Prince Harry, Duchess Camilla, Prince Charles, Prince Andrew, Prince Edward, Princess Beatrice, and Princess Eugenie.
Trooping the Colour is always one of the royal family’s most spectacular events of the year. Although the queen’s birthday is actually on April 21, the event is typically scheduled in June since there’s a better chance the weather will be nice. Kate and Camilla rode in a carriage together with Prince Harry, while Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip waved to the crowd from their own. They were accompanied by more than 1,400 officers and 200 horses (one of which was ridden by Prince William!) as their carriages made their way from Buckingham Palace across St. James’s Park.
After the tragedies London has endured over the last few months, hopefully the day brought a smile to more than a few faces.
