Kate Middleton Just Said the Cutest Thing About Meghan Markle's Pregnancy

Travel and Leisure - Fri, 11/30/2018 - 07:51
<p>Meghan Markle, duchess of Sussex, is getting her first taste of the downsides of becoming a royal.</p><p>Since she and her husband, Prince Harry, announced they will be <a href="https://people.com/royals/prince-harry-meghan-markle-frogmore-cottage-photo/" target="_blank">moving to the Frogmore Cottage</a> on the grounds of Windsor Castle, the couple has been the subject of more than a few negative headlines. Each one more specific than the last, speculating on a <a href="http://www.elle.com/culture/celebrities/a25318344/prince-harry-prince-william-meghan-markle-christmas-drama/" target="_blank">“rift” between Meghan and Kate Middleton</a>, and even drama between Harry and William.</p><p>However, according to Middleton herself, that could not be further from the truth. On Wednesday, while making an appearance in Leicester, England, Middleton shared with well-wishers that the entire family is overjoyed about Meghan’s pregnancy and have come together to support her and Harry.</p><p>“It’s such a special time to have little kiddies, and a cousin for George and Charlotte, as well, and Louis. It’s really special,” she said of Harry and Meghan’s future royal baby.</p><p>Middleton was also happy to discuss her own children with fans as well. During the event, Middleton shared that her kids are all getting rather excited for the holiday season.</p><p>"They’re doing well, thank you," she said. "They’re getting excited for Christmas time because they’ve started all their Christmas songs and Christmas trees are going up. It was really sweet. And Louis’s getting big. I can’t believe he’s like seven months now. He’s getting to be a big boy."</p><p>Middleton even shared a little inside tidbit on her family, revealing the sweet nickname her children have for their father, Prince William. According to an onlooker named <a href="https://www.etonline.com/kate-middleton-reveals-her-kids-cute-nickname-for-their-dad-prince-william-114676" target="_blank">Fiona Sturgess</a>, "Kate said that William was playing football [soccer] with the children last night and one of them said, I think it was George, ‘Are you playing football tomorrow, Pops?’”</p><p>So there you have it. Rift over. And William goes by “Pops.” We can all relax now, the royals are just fine.</p>

This 'Game of Thrones' Actor Apparently Caused Quite the Airplane Frenzy After Filming 'The Red Wedding'

Travel and Leisure - Fri, 11/30/2018 - 07:35
<p>Robb Stark arguably suffered one of the most gruesome deaths in “<a href="https://www.travelandleisure.com/culture-design/tv-movies/game-of-thrones-sets-tourist-attractions" target="_blank">Game of Thrones</a>” history. After (spoiler alert) watching his pregnant wife be stabbed to death and his army brought down in a single room, Stark himself met his fate when he too was stabbed in the gut. Which really, makes it totally understandable that the actor behind the role, Richard Madden, cried the entire way home following the filming.</p><p>In a new interview with <em><a href="https://www.gq-magazine.co.uk/article/richard-madden-game-of-thrones-red-wedding-scene" target="_blank">GQ</a></em>, Madden revealed that he was overwhelmed with his final scene. In fact, he was overcome at having to watch the scene again as part of the interview, he told <i>GQ</i>, “I think it’s really rude you made me watch this.”</p><p>While re-watching the scene, Madden became a bit emotional, sharing second-by-second details. He even revealed that after filming the grueling final death, he had to immediately hop on a plane back to <a href="https://www.travelandleisure.com/travel-news/london-worlds-first-national-park-city" target="_blank">London</a>. He didn’t even have time to wash the fake blood from his hands.</p><p><strong>Related:</strong><b> </b><a href="https://www.travelandleisure.com/culture-design/tv-movies/game-of-thrones-tours-zicasso" target="_blank">Travel the Seven Kingdoms by Visiting the Filming Locations of 'Game of Thrones'</a></p><p>On the flight back, Madden said: “I remember being on this flight back to London, covered in fake blood, exhausted and just sobbing,” he said in the video. “It looks like I just murdered someone and got on a flight. Which, in fact, I hadn’t. I’d been murdered.”</p><p>People around him started to also catch on to his odd behavior and bloody appearance and a cabin crew member even approached him to ask if he was OK.</p><p>“And then people moved and the rows behind me moved. I was sobbing and covered in blood. I looked like I’d murdered someone and got on that flight,” he said.</p><p>If those lucky fellow passengers knew they were actually flying with the true King of North they’d be totally OK with his less than desirable flight antics.</p>

Giant Teddy Bears Are Taking Over Paris for the Cutest Reason

Travel and Leisure - Fri, 11/30/2018 - 06:39
<p>Imagine if your neighborhood was taken over by an “army” of bears.</p><p>No, not real bears — cuddly, soft teddy bears to be exact.</p><p>Residents of one neighborhood in Paris, Les Gobelins, have noticed the growing number of giant teddy bears that have been popping up at different locations, and the locals absolutely love the new visitors, <a href="https://www.thelocal.fr/20181122/in-pictures-french-shop-owner-drafts-in-50-giant-teddy-bears-to-cheer-up-parisians" target="_blank"><em>The Local</em> reported</a>.</p><img alt="Teddy bears in the window of a Paris hotel "src="https://cdn-image.travelandleisure.com/sites/default/files/styles/1600x1000/public/1543510409/paris-hotel-bears-PARISBEARS1118.jpg?itok=wjavc5my"><p>Don’t worry, the bears are not suddenly gaining sentience and walking around when nobody's looking. In fact, the bears are part of a project by a local bookshop owner named Phillipe, in an effort to bring the community together in a fun, unexpected way, according to <em><a href="http://www.leparisien.fr/paris-75/paris-l-incroyable-buzz-des-nounours-geants-des-gobelins-20-11-2018-7947801.php" target="_blank">Le Parisien</a></em>.</p><p>“I've been working here for 25 years. There were people I had never spoken to. Now they call me Philippe,” the bookseller told Le Parisien, as translated by <em>The Local</em>.</p><p>There are 50 teddy bears all in all, which Philippe has been putting in different places around the neighborhood since late October. Another shop owner, a pharmacist named Emmanuel, told <em>Le Parisien</em> that no one is sure where Phillipe gets the bears, but he’s also lending them out to people in the area.</p><img alt="Teddy Bear at the Les Gobelins metro station in Paris, France "src="https://cdn-image.travelandleisure.com/sites/default/files/styles/1600x1000/public/1543510409/paris-bears-les-gobelins-PARISBEARS1118.jpg?itok=5yqDz0Fq"><p>The bears are continually appearing in many different spots for residents to stumble on. They “eat” in huge groups in front of restaurants and hotels, “climb” lamp posts or just greet people on street corners.</p><img alt="Giant teddy bears at a cafe in Paris, France "src="https://cdn-image.travelandleisure.com/sites/default/files/styles/1600x1000/public/1543510409/bears-at-paris-cafe-PARISBEARS1118.jpg?itok=II29UYUK"><p>Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo even enjoys the new, furry addition to Les Gobelins.</p><p>The bears have now become so popular that fans of the fuzzy creatures can keep up with them and their shenanigans on the bears’ official <a href="https://www.facebook.com/nounours.gobelins.paris" target="_blank">Facebook page</a>.</p><p>According to <em>The Local</em>, the bookshop owner plans to keep the bears moving around the community until the <a href="https://www.livinglanguage.com/blog/2012/12/27/la-galette-des-rois-celebrating-the-feast-of-the-epiphany-in-france/" target="_blank">La Gallette des Rois celebration</a>, also known as the Feast of the Epiphany, on Jan. 6.</p>

Someone's E-cigarette Caused an Evacuation at Boston Logan Airport

Travel and Leisure - Fri, 11/30/2018 - 06:33
<p>It’s important to properly pack everything you bring along on your trip, especially when it comes to electronics.</p><p>Many devices, from laptops to phone chargers, use lithium batteries, which the <a href="https://www.tsa.gov/blog/2016/05/06/asktsa-travel-tips-over-140-characters-e-cigarettes-and-other-nicotine-delivery" target="_blank">TSA requires</a> all passengers to pack in their carry-on bags. The main reason for this is that lithium batteries used for electronics can pose a rather unpredictable fire risk while in the air if they are checked.</p><p>At Boston Logan International Airport on Saturday, a lithium battery used to charge an e-cigarette ended up causing a suitcase that was checked onto a flight to expel smoke, causing a temporary evacuation in the checked baggage screening room, NECN reported.</p><p>Airport workers noticed the smoke only a few minutes before loading the suitcase onto the plane. The TSA posted a video of the smoking bag on Twitter. According to NECN, the owner of the bag was a man traveling to Kansas City.</p><p>Luckily, despite the smoke, the bag was determined to be safe after a check by the Massport Fire &amp; Rescue and a state police bomb unit, according to <a href="https://www.boston.com/news/local-news/2018/11/28/smoking-suitcase-logan-airport" target="_blank">Boston.com</a>. No other parts of the airport were affected by the evacuation.</p><p>“TSA is focused on ensuring that nothing catastrophic occurs on an airplane, and so of course a suitcase that has smoke emitting from it is definitely suspicious,” a TSA official said in a statement.</p><p>One witness told NECN, “I don't smoke, but now I certainly won't have one of those. Never! I rather take my chances with a lit one.”</p><p>Even if a lithium battery is packed in a carry-on, it can still cause problems. But having it in the cabin with you makes it easier to detect an igniting battery before it can cause serious harm. <a href="https://www.travelandleisure.com/travel-news/portable-charger-causes-fire-on-flight" target="_blank">Phone and laptop chargers</a> have been the culprits in recent incidents.</p><p>If you must take your battery with you, make sure to stow it where you can keep an eye on it. And remember to make sure it’s undamaged and functioning properly before taking it on a trip.</p>
