Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Reveal Their New Charitable Foundation

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are starting a new charitable foundation.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex on Monday revealed the launch of nonprofit organization Archewell, which is their first joint venture since stepping down from their royal duties at the end of March.
The couple revealed to The Daily Telegraph that Archewell will offer services such as emotional support groups, a multimedia educational empire and a wellbeing web site. They also filed a number of trademark requests for Archewell to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on March 3 for goods and services such as apparel, educational materials, magazines, films, podcasts and a web site providing information on nutrition, health and mental health, among others.
The charity’s name comes partially from the couple’s 11-month-old son Archie and from the Greek word “arche,” which means “source of action.”
“We connected to this concept for the charitable organization we hoped to build one day, and it became the inspiration for our son’s name,” the couple told the Telegraph. “To do something of meaning, to do something that matters.”
The announcement of the couple’s new charity comes after they initially filed trademark requests under their “Sussex Royal” moniker to launch their foundation. Ultimately, the couple withdrew the

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are officially done with their royal duties.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle joined the royal family on Monday for Commonwealth Day Service at Westminster Abbey, marking their last official appearance before they step down from their duties on April 1.
The couple joined Queen Elizabeth II; the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton; Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall for the appearance. This marks the first time Prince Harry and Markle have publicly joined the rest of the royal family since they attended Remembrance Day Services in November 2019.
For the occasion, Markle chose a green Emilia Wickstead dress with a matching William Chambers fascinator. Middleton opted for red, wearing a double-breasted Catherine Walker coat dress with a floral-detailed fascinator.
Prince Harry and Markle have been back in the U.K. for over a week now to make their last official royal appearances. The couple made their first public outing since announcing their break from the royal family on March 5 when they attended the Endeavour Fund Awards in London.

The couple is back in the U.K. this week for their final royal engagements before their break becomes official on April 1, making their first appearance on Thursday at the Endeavour Fund Awards in London, which recognizes wounded soldiers.

The Farewell Tour: Prince Harry, Meghan Markle Return to U.K. for Final Round of Official Visits

LONDON — Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will bid adieu to their royal duties this week with a final series of visits before they officially withdraw as working members of the royal family. Their final tour will run from Thursday, March 5 through Monday, March 9, with all events taking place in London.
It’s not exactly a grueling schedule, with the couple set to undertake one engagement per day. The couple have left their infant son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, at home in Canada and there is even speculation — fueled mainly by the bookies — that the couple will announce that Megan is pregnant once again.
Harry, as he wants to be called now, is already in London: Last week, he hosted an eco-friendly travel summit for his Travalyst initiative. A few days later he joined Jon Bon Jovi and the Invictus Games Choir at Abbey Road Studios. They recorded the charity song, “Unbroken.”

Harry and Meghan Withdraw ‘Sussex Royal’ Trademark Applications

After much analysis and speculation, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Harry and Meghan, have withdrawn trademark applications for their Sussex Royal brand.
What some had pegged as potentially becoming a billion-dollar brand, the Sussex Royal brand is no longer every marketer’s dream that it once was. But the power couple could still very well reach billionaire status with their various speaking engagements, book deals, talk show appearances and other pursuits, according to one London-based branding expert.
According to news reports Friday, a spokeswoman for the Sussexes said in a statement, “While the Duke and Duchess are focused on plans to establish a new nonprofit organization, given the specific U.K. government rules surrounding use of the word ‘Royal,’ it has been therefore agreed that their nonprofit organization, when it is announced this spring, will not be named Sussex Royal Foundation.
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex do not intend to use ‘Sussex Royal’ in any territory post spring 2020,” she said.

Harry and Meghan to Downsize, Split Time Between U.K., North America

FROM MAJOR TO MINOR: Still on a high, and jet-lagged, from their seven-week sabbatical in the U.S. and Canada, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are making waves once again with news they want to step back from royal life and spend less time in the U.K.
Their plan is to renounce their status as senior members of the royal family, become financially independent and split their time between the U.K. and North America. Their Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s holiday clearly made a big impact on the couple, who traveled with their infant son Archie Mountbatten-Windsor and spent extended time with Markle’s mother Doria Ragland.
While the announcement may have come as a surprise so soon after their arrival back in the U.K., any royal watcher could see this sort of decision coming. Harry and Meghan are both entangled in lawsuits with British tabloids, accusing them of invading their privacy.
The two positively bristle at having to live their lives in the spotlight: They were unnecessarily cagey about the details of Archie’s birth and the christening, refusing to reveal the names of the infant’s godparents, a norm for members of the royal family. Early in their marriage they moved out of Kensington Palace,

Bridget Foley’s Diary: Harry and Meghan, From Grandmother’s Realm They Go

“What family doesn’t have its ups and downs?”
So mused Katharine Hepburn’s Eleanor of Aquitaine after a feisty spat with her husband, Peter O’Toole’s Henry II, in “The Lion in Winter.” I haven’t seen it in years and couldn’t locate the specific clip on YouTube, but if memory serves, Eleanor’s rhetorical query comes after a row in which she calls out the king for sleeping with his daughter-in-law, and then goads him: “do you wonder if I ever slept with your father?” The story also features ample brotherly discord.
Eight hundred-plus years later, another queen called 1992 an “annus horribilis,” Elizabeth II referring to a year of Windsor woes, including two of her sons’ very public marital problems.
Oh, the times may be a-changin’ but not that much when it comes British royal family drama. Since Wednesday, the world has been riveted by Megxit, the announcement by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle that the couple intends to “carve out a progressive new role within this institution” of the British monarchy.
In response, Princes Charles and William are, according to a source first quoted in The Sun (whose usage of language should make every journalist at least a little envious), “incandescent with rage.”

A Timeline of Harry and Meghan: From the Royal Wedding to Megxit

News of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepping down as “senior members” of the British royal family this week has captivated the world, putting even more scrutiny on the wildly popular royal couple.
Nevertheless, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been media fodder since rumors circulated about them in 2016, in the early days of their relationship. British tabloids have steadfastly covered the couple’s tumultuous relationship with the rest of the British royal family, not to mention the duchess’ relationship with her estranged father, Thomas Markle.
The couple recently fought back on this negative press, suing a number of publications on claims such as misuse of private information, infringement of copyright and breach of the U.K.’s Data Protection Act relating to the unlawful dissemination of a private letter Markle wrote to her father.

Prince Harry, Meghan Markle’s Struggles Eclipse Coverage of Prince Andrew Scandal in Britain

LONDON — The ITV documentary featuring Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will air in the U.S. later Wednesday, and it will no doubt draw millions of eyeballs, as it did on home turf last week.
Many viewers are already familiar with the few clips that have gone viral, but the documentary is wide-ranging and addresses a variety of subjects, casting a new light on the couple.
During the hour-long documentary, ITV reporter Tom Brady tracks Meghan and Harry’s journey through Africa and highlights the causes that the couple has been championing, as well as the struggles they are facing in the spotlight.
“It’s hard, in all fairness I had no idea, which probably sounds difficult to understand, but when I first met my now-husband, my friends we’re really happy but my British friends said, “I’m sure he’s great, but the British tabloids will destroy your life. I didn’t get it, and it’s been complicated,” said Markle.
She also talks about adopting the British stiff upper lip.
“I’ve said for a long time to H, it’s not enough to just survive something. That’s not the point of life. You have to thrive, and I think I really try to adopt this British sensibility, a stiff upper

Meghan and Harry Have Revealed the Name of Their New Charitable Foundation

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are continuing their philanthropic mission.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are starting their own charitable organization, named “Sussex Royal The Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex,” according to The Sun’s reporter, Emily Andrews, who tweeted out the news on Wednesday. The charity will be called “Sussex Royal” for short.

Exclusive: #Harry & #Meghan’s new foundation will be called “Sussex Royal” (full title “Sussex Royal The Foundation of the D&D of Sussex). Its 4 directors are the Sussexes, PR guru Sara Latham & former Royal Foundation staffer Natalie Campbell, who will be the new director. pic.twitter.com/604czSjQEw
— Emily Andrews (@byEmilyAndrews) July 17, 2019

The news comes after the royals split their household from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton. They also exited from the Royal Foundation, which Prince Harry helped his brother start in 2009. The charity focuses on causes surrounding mental health awareness, wildlife conservation and youth, among other issues.
The announcement comes after a busy week for the royal couple, who attended the Wimbledon Championship and the U.K. premiere of “The Lion King” where they met Beyoncé and Jay Z.
The royals registered the new foundation as a private company on July

Beyoncé Meets Meghan and Harry at “The Lion King” UK Premiere

It’s been a star-studded weekend of events in the UK with the Wimbledon finals, but perhaps the hottest ticket in town was the London premiere of “The Lion King” on Sunday night.
The hotly-anticipated remake of the blockbuster 1994 Disney animated film, which hits theaters this week, stars Donald Glover and Beyoncé Knowles Carter, who voice Simba and Nala, respectively. While the presence of Beyoncé on any red carpet is a royal event by Hollywood standards (case in point: when Knowles Carter and daughter Blue Ivy Carter showed up to the film’s Los Angeles premiere in matching custom Alexander McQueen), the addition of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex made Sunday night’s premiere a true royal affair.
Beyoncé  and Jay-Z, who actually gave a shoutout to the Duchess displaying a portrait of her behind them in an Instagram post upon receiving their Brit Award in February, met Meghan and Harry for the first time on the red carpet, as seen on this video that’s gone viral.
Knowles Carter wore a custom draped gold gown from Cong Tri, while the Duchess and new mother of baby Archie wore a black A-line Jason Wu dress with a sheer illusion top and sleeves. In the video,

J.K. Rowling Shoots Down Your Favorite ‘Harry Potter’ Fan Theories

Sorry, Muggles. J.K. Rowling is going all Avada Kedavra on some of your favorite “Harry Potter” fan theories.

Up to this point, fans of the books and movies have analyzed the story so much that they’ve come up with a number of theories that are so crazy they have to be true.

As it turns out, nope, they’re just crazy. Here are the theories that must not be named anymore:

Ron Weasley is not a time-traveling Albus Dumbledore.

No! Not this one!

In the books, there are a number of physical descriptions and plot points that show major similarities between Dumbledore and Ron, but after a fan asked about it, Rowling confirmed they aren’t the same person:

Bloody hell …

Also, Draco Malfoy is not a werewolf and Snape is not a vampire. 

 

What? OK, she’s just pouring it on now.

Because of their physical descriptions and some peculiar activities in the books, Draco Malfoy and Snape were thought to secretly be a werewolf and a vampire, respectively. Draco’s physical changes that occur in the book are seen as the result of a werewolf curse by some, and Snape’s pale complexion was viewed as evidence he was in fact undead. Unfortunately, these are not the case either:

After that, Rowling was done crushing all our Muggle dreams for one day.

Don’t be too disappointed, though. Rowling has also confirmed some other fan theories, and with her new play “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” coming to the stage, you can be sure more theories are on the way.

Harry Styles Falls Again Because It’s The Story Of His Life

Recently, during a time we assume he wasn’t falling to the seat of his pants, Styles and One Direction released the video for their new single. It’s called “Drag Me Down.”

Yeah, “Drag Me Down.” Has there ever been a more appropriate song title in the history of music?

This Owl Ring Bearer Is A ‘Harry Potter’ Fan’s Dream Come True

This dashing ring bearer was a real hoot.

Groom Shaun Palmer surprised his bride Adele and all of their guests by having an owl named Bilbo carry the rings down the aisle at their July 2014 wedding in Roker, Sunderland, United Kingdom. But it wasn’t until the video was posted to YouTube on Friday that it began making the rounds online.

Internet folks have pointed out that this bird bears a striking resemblance to the late Hedwig of Harry Potter fame.

Palmer told The Huffington Post that he first came up with the idea to have an owl ring bearer after seeing it advertised at a wedding show a couple years before their nuptials and thought it would be an awesome way to surprise his bride. He said, though, that his best man Chris — who was tasked with intercepting Bilbo at the altar — wasn’t totally on-board with the plan at first.

“I actually booked the owl before I’d even spoke to Chris, my best man,” he said. “When I did phone him, I said, ‘How do you feel about an owl landing on your arm to bring our wedding rings down the aisle?’ He said something along the lines of ‘no chance’ to which I replied, ‘Well, it’s a bit late now — I’ve booked it!'”

2015-05-26-1432670816-8819728-bestmanowl526.jpg

The groom told HuffPost that the owl was both “brilliant” and “so well-behaved.”

After the ceremony, the handler stayed with Bilbo so the guests could meet him and take pictures.

“It gave a great bit of extra theater to the day,” Palmer said.

Julianne Hough Was An Extra In ‘Harry Potter,’ But We Actually Already Knew That

Julianne Hough took part in Us Weekly’s “25 Things You Don’t Know About Me” feature, in which the magazine asks celebrities to list 25 interesting or random facts about themselves that the public probably doesn’t know about them. But Hough’s list comes up short, because there’s at least one fact we definitely already knew:

11. I was a Gryffindor in “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” but don’t blink or you’ll miss me!

While this isn’t news to us, maybe it’s news to you. And there really isn’t a bad time to revisit a moment in Harry Potter history. Hough’s role’s as a Hogwarts student was blink and you’ll miss it, indeed. She can be seen sitting near Hermoine (Emma Watson) and Ron (Rupert Grint) while they cheer on Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) at a Quidditch match.

juliannehoughharrypotter

Hough has actually spoken her appearance in beloved 2001 children’s movie on more than one occasion.

“Oh, yes. I remember it like it was yesterday. I’m still such a big fan. I always go and watch the midnight showing, so I’m excited to see it,” she told Parade magazine in 2011 when asked if the ending of the film series felt bittersweet.

She added, “I might get in trouble for this, but I actually stole the Gryffindor scarf that I had as a memento. I was like, ‘I have to keep this scarf!’”

Then in 2012, during an appearance on “Live With Kelly,” Hough brought up the scarf story again and admitted that while filming the movie as an 11-year-old she fell hard for Harry Potter himself.

“I was kind of in love, especially with Daniel Radcliffe. I wrote him a love note. It was Valentine’s Day and I got him the Valentino Beanie Baby. I never heard back,” she said.

You can also see Hough in this deleted scene from the first “Harry Potter” movie:

This Possible ‘Harry Potter’ Couple Would Ruin Harry Potter’s Childhood Even More

Harry Potter might want to keep away from the latest edition of The Quibbler.

Following a recent Instagram post, the online speculation is that Harry’s dad, James Potter, aka actor Robbie Jarvis, may be dating Luna Lovegood, aka actress Evanna Lynch. And if Harry’s childhood wasn’t ruined before, it definitely is now:




That photo isn’t all, though. Despite the fact that E! wasn’t given conformation from Jarvis’ reps that the two were dating, other cute photos just seem to add to the evidence. Take this one for example:

Trying on hats with @msevylynch. Which one of us looks better? #fancy

A photo posted by Robbie (@awildrobbieattacks) on




And check out this one where they apparently took Polyjuice Potion and transformed into owls. Nice try, James and Luna, but we know it’s you:

Owls!

A photo posted by Robbie (@awildrobbieattacks) on

So why is this such a big deal? OK, first, let’s skip past the fact that in “Harry Potter,” Luna came in during Ginny’s year and is younger than Harry. Just forget that. But didn’t Harry also take Luna to Professor Slughorn’s Christmas party? Now his dad might be taking her out? Oh, and what about Lily Potter, James? What about Lily?

Voldemort has done some pretty messed up things to Harry Potter before, but this might be crossing the line.

That being said, we wish all the happiness in the world to the potential couple because they are just actors and Harry Potter isn’t real. Or that’s what people want you to believe, anyway.

Representatives for the actors did not immediately respond to The Huffington Post’s requests for comment.

Harry Styles Shows That Being Charitable Is Really ‘What Makes You Beautiful’

Harry Styles can be a pretty amazing guy — and that’s not just because he has fabulous hair.

Though One Direction has been busy performing around the world as part of the “On The Road Again” tour, Styles took time out last week to visit students from the Lalela Project, an organization that provides arts education to at-risk youth in Cape Town, South Africa, according to the group’s Instagram page.

The 21-year-old reportedly just wanted to do some good.

Harry decided to go to the Lalela Project all by himself and he really impressed kids and workers there,” a source told the Sun UK, adding that “Harry could easily have spent extra time at his hotel relaxing but he really wants to give back when the band are traveling the world.”

The source told the Sun that Styles chatted with the students and gave them tickets to the band’s show in the city. While on stage, the singer even wore a Lalela luggage tag during the show, according to the organization’s Facebook page.

Despite his hectic touring life, Styles wanted to pay his dues to initiatives that were helping the people who needed it most, the source said.

“This tour hasn’t been easy for the boys but [Harry] knows their lives are far better than many of their fans’ and kids being helped by projects like this.”

Styles’ visit with the Lalela students was a compassionate move, but the 21-year-old is no stranger to giving back.

Back in 2013, the singer and his bandmate, Liam Payne, participated in a charity date auction, in which fans could bid on an evening out with the two, the Press Association reported. The money from the auction went to go to Trekstock, an organization that supports young people with cancer.

Earlier that year, the band also recorded a cover of Blondie’s “One Way or Another” to support Comic Relief, a charity that works to tackle poverty and social injustice.

The ‘Harry Potter’ Cast Had The Most Magical Reunion Ever

We solemnly swear that this is amazing.

Draco Malfoy was hanging out with the Weasleys in West Hollywood recently and decided to share the Hogwarts reunion on Instagram for all us Muggles to see. Ten points to Slytherin for that!

Joining actor Tom Felton in the photo were Rupert Grint, otherwise known as Ron, actress Bonnie Wright, perhaps better known as Ginny, and actor James Phelps, otherwise known as Fred. And something tells us they weren’t drinking butter beers:

Kim K stood me up. Outnumbered by 3 Weasleys. Ugh.

In the caption, Felton also made light of Kim Kardashian’s new look, which has been compared to his in the “Harry Potter” movies. Felton previously told HuffPost Entertainment that Kardashian would be a Slytherin at Hogwarts, so apparently he was spot on. Phelps also shared a reunion photo of his own with a caption reading, “Mini family reunion…and Tom”:

Mini family reunion…and Tom. Great night with the gang

Universal Orlando went by the book when creating live shows for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley

When it came to creating authentic live entertainment for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley, the folks at Universal Orlando Entertainment really went by the book.

“Which book?,” you ask. “Harry Potter and the Chambers of Secret.” A single sentence from that 1998 J.K. Rowling novel, to be exact. Where — as The Boy Who Lived was exploring “The Burrow” (i.e., the Weasley family home) — Harry noticed that …

… the old radio next to the sink had just announced that coming up was “Witching Hour, with the popular singing sorceress Celestina Warbeck.”

2015-01-29-Celestina3.jpg

And with that one line of text, Universal Entertainment finally found a solution for a challenge that had been plaguing the Diagon Alley project. Which was how to naturalistically add a live entertainment element to this ambitious expansion of Universal Orlando’s Wizarding World.

“Whenever we’re developing new lands for our theme parks, we always look for ways to turn streets into stages. Give our guests the chance to come around a corner and suddenly stumble upon this seemingly spontaneous moment of entertainment,” Michael Aiello, Director of Entertainment – Creative Development for Universal Orlando Resort, explained during a recent interview. “That’s why Jake and Elwood regularly roll through Universal Studios Florida in their Bluesmobile. So that the Blues Brothers can then be seen presenting a live street show out on our New York backlot. Or why the Whos carol around Seuss Landing whenever we’re celebrating Grinchmas at Universal’s Islands of Adventure.”

But when it came to Diagon Alley, Aiello and the Universal Entertainment team were presented with a unique challenge. Given that this expansion of The Wizarding World was supposed to authentically recreate what had previously been seen in the Harry Potter films and described in J.K. Rowling’s fiction, they were now dealing with a full-scale environment that was going to be so rich & hyper-detailed that it could potentially upstage any attempts at live entertainment.

2015-01-29-Celestina4.jpg

“But once we came across that line in ‘Chamber of Secrets’ which revealed that Molly Weasley was a Celestina Warbeck fan, that was our get-out-of-jail-free card. Here was a character that J.K. herself had dreamed up, this famous singing sorceress. And wouldn’t it make sense that — at some point in her fabled career — that Celestina would drop by Diagon Alley, the place where all of the witches & wizards of London went to do their shopping?,” Aiello continued. “So we took this idea to J.K. And she was so supportive of this idea that she actually provided us with the titles of several songs that Celestina could possibly perform while she was doing a live remote from Diagon Alley for the Wizarding Wireless Network.”

Mind you, once Rowling had provided Aiello and the team with titles like “You Stole My Cauldron But You Can’t Have My Heart” and “Beat Back Those Bludgers, Boys, and Chuck That Quaffle Here,” it was then up to Universal Entertainment to turn these Potter-centric concepts into musical numbers that singers could actually perform. Which is why they then turned to Michael Weiner and Alan Zachary, the talented team behind Broadway’s “First Date.”

“And from the moment we told Michael and Alan that J.K. saw Celestina as this Shirley Bassey-like performer who worked with three back-up singers, they immediately knew what to do with the songs for this character,” Patrick Braillard, Diagon Alley’s show director, recalled. “They wrote us these great jazz-fusion numbers that only a true diva like Lena Horne or Bette Midler could pull off. Which is why — when people are wandering around Diagon Alley and then happen upon Celestina performing with her Banshees — they’re completely blown away. This show just knocks their socks off.”

2015-01-29-Celestina2.jpg

Of course, if you’re looking to wow an audience with a seemingly impromptu live show, you first need a proper stage for your performers to appear on. Which is why — as Universal Creative was initially designing Diagon Alley — they deliberately created a corner in Carkitt Market where Celestina and her Banshees could then make a dramatic entrance by coming down this long staircase.

“That space really serves this Wizarding Wireless Network broadcast well. Which is kind of ironic, given that Celestina and her Banshees wasn’t actually the first live show that Universal Entertainment wrote for Diagon Alley,” Aiello said. “We had this concept that we’d originally pitched for Hogsmeade. One where we wanted to establish this troupe of tale tellers who would wander about The Wizarding World and tell Universal Orlando visitors about The Boy Who Lived. But since there were no characters like this in either the Potter books or movies, it just didn’t seem authentic to go ahead with this particular entertainment idea – which is why this creative concept kind of fell off the table for Hogsmeade.”

Ah, but all that changed in 2007 with the publication of “The Tales of Beedle the Bard.” For in the foreword of this collection of Wizarding World fairytales, J.K. revealed that there was a Wizarding Academy of Dramatic Arts.

2015-01-29-Celestina5.jpg

“And once we came across that reference in ‘Beedle the Bard,’ we were like ‘A-ha! Let’s latch onto that. Let’s figure out how we can expand upon this idea and then somehow make it work for Diagon Alley,’ ” Michael continued. “And in the end, what we decided to do was invent this traveling troupe of players who had trained at the Wizarding Academy of Dramatic Arts who now do street theater. And to then connect this new piece of Diagon Alley entertainment with the book that had inspired it, we decided to have these traveling players perform selected stories from ‘The Tales of Beedle the Bard.’ Which is kind of The Wizarding World’s version of Grimm’s Fairytales or Aesop’s Fables.”

What made this particular entertainment concept somewhat hard to pull off was that most Universal Orlando visitors only knew ‘The Tales of Beedle the Bard’ from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1. Which had featured a stylized animated version of one of this book’s stories, “The Tale of the Three Brothers.”

“And since — whenever possible — we want to create some sort of visual continuity between the Harry Potter films and our theme park version of The Wizarding World, we decided to have those visiting members of the Wizarding Academy of Dramatic Arts present a troubadour version of ‘The Tale of the Three Brothers’ using puppets that looked just like the animated characters had in Deathly Hallows – Part 1,” Aiello explained. “Thankfully, Michael Currey Design was up to the specific design challenges of this project. They created these terrific-looking, lightweight, hand sculpted puppets that the performers could just pull out of a trunk and then manipulate right there in front of the audience.”

And to insure that this group of traveling players would have then a selection of tales to tell whenever they next appeared in Diagon Alley, Universal Entertainment decided to turn another story from “The Tales of Beedle the Bard” into a piece of street theater. And this performance piece — “The Fountain of Fair Fortune” — also features some beautifully-detailed, Michael Curry-designed puppets.

“This is what we’ve tried to do with the entire Wizarding World project. Find these kernels of content that J.K. has written that we can then expand in full-sized pieces of entertainment that are just as rich and vivid as the fiction she created,” Aiello concluded. “That — in a nutshell — is what I think the Universal difference is. That — when we work with other people’s intellectual property — we’re just as passionate, enthusiastic & dedicated to these characters and their stories as the original creators are. Universal Orlando always strives to put these IPs we’ve been entrusted with in the best possible light.”

And speaking of dedication: Tomorrow, the most dedicated Wizarding World fans in the world will be descending on Universal Orlando for the 2nd annual “Celebration of Harry Potter.” Hosted by Universal Orlando Resort and Warner Bros., this three day-long event will feature Q&A sessions with Robbie Coltrane (Rubeus Hagrid), Michael Gambon (Albus Dumbledore) and other stars of the Harry Potter films. Not to mention a live duelling demonstration led by the world’s only Wand Combat choreographer, Paul Harris. Plus the “Celebration of Harry Potter” Expo, which features interactive exhibits from Warner Bros., Pottermore, Harry Potter: The Exhibition and Warner Bros. Studio Tour London, where Universal Orlando guests will then have the opportunity to try on the Sorting Hat.

But given that this will be the first time that many Harry Potter fans will have the chance to experience The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley (which officially opened to the public back on July 8, 2014), just be aware that there will probably be record crowds in Carkitt Market all weekend long. As these J.K. Rowling fans check out the live stage shows that Universal Entertainment built around Celestina Warbeck & her Banshees and the Wizarding Academy of Dramatic Arts.

Watch Harry Belafonte’s Powerful Speech On Social Injustice

Harry Belafonte was this year’s recipient of the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award during the sixth annual Governors Awards on Saturday night. The honorary Oscar is Belafonte’s first, and the 87-year-old singer, actor and social activist used the award as an opportunity to discuss Hollywood’s complicated history with racial injustice:

In 1935, at the age of 8, sitting in a Harlem theater, I watched with awe and wonder incredible feats of the white superhero, Tarzan of the Apes. Tarzan was a sight to see. This porcelain Adonis, this white liberator, who could speak no language, swinging from tree to tree, saving Africa from the tragedy of destruction by a black indigenous population of inept, ignorant, void-of-any-skills population, governed by ancient superstitions with no heart for Christian charity. Through this film the virus of racial inferiority — of never wanting to be identified with anything African — swept into the psyche of its youthful observers. And for the years that followed, Hollywood brought abundant opportunity for black children in their Harlem theaters to cheer Tarzan and boo Africans. […] But these encounters set other things in motion. It was an early stimulus to the beginning of my rebellion. Rebellion against injustice and human distortion and hate. How fortunate for me that the performing arts became the catalyst that fueled my desire for social change.

Belafonte went on to cite “The Defiant Ones,” “Schindler’s List,” “Brokeback Mountain,” “12 Years A Slave” and Sidney Poitier as moving the discussion forward in a positive way throughout the last 60 years. But he closed his speech with a call to arms for all of Hollywood, now and in the future:

I really wish I could be around for the rest of this century, to see what Hollywood does with the rest of the century. Maybe, just maybe, it could be civilization’s game changer. After all, as Paul Robeson said, artists are the radical voice of civilization. Each and every one of you in this room, with your gift and power and skills, could perhaps change the way in which our global humanity mistrusts itself. Perhaps we as artists and visionaries for what’s better in the human heart and the human soul could influence citizens everywhere in the world to see the better side of who and what we are as a species.

Prince Harry Photobombs New Zealanders At Commonwealth Games

Forget fox hunting, polo and complaining about the press. The British royal family seems to have embraced a new hobby.

It’s photobombing, and Prince Harry is the latest to take part. Just check him out in the background of this photo, taken at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games:

From left to right, that’s rugby coach Sir Gordon Tietjens, Sport Manawatu chief executive Trevor Shailer and sports psychologist and Massey University professor emeritus Gary Hermansson. But it’s the guy behind them that makes this picture so special.

Prince Harry was attending the event with Prince William, who can be spotted in the far right of the photo. The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, was seated to Prince William’s right, but you can only see a little of her hair in this image.

The royals are embracing the modern age of photography. Earlier this month, the two princes snapped a selfie with British entrepreneur Jamal Edwards.

And last week, the Queen herself got in on the act with an epic photobomb, also snapped at the Commonwealth Games.

Don’t Act Your Age – Harry, Tonto, Paul and You

At age 44, the maverick satirical filmmaker Paul Mazursky wrote and directed Harry & Tonto, chronicled an old man’s unexpected late life struggle against society’s selfish coercive pressures to relocate, institutionalize, and infantilize him back into a state of docile dependency. This week, 40 years later, Mazursky, at age 84, himself, became the ultimate victim of aging but not the victim of ageism.

He beat ageism by not allowing others define him as “past his prime,” “last year’s model,”
“over-the-hill,” and any of the other euphemisms aspiring middle-aged combats use to push aside those who appear to block their own career paths. Robert McFadden wrote in his New York Times obituary:

Mr. Mazursky was a show-business rarity, almost never out of work in a run of six decades that began as a stage and screen actor in the early 1950s and was still adding credits at the time of his death… For all that, there was an ageless quality about him. Associates said he had boundless energy, the rapid patter of a stand-up comic and an actor’s gift for memory.

This was the parallel goal of Mazurky’s character Harry Combs of Harry & Tonto — the roles so poignantly played by 55-year-old Art Carney, who earned an Oscar for “Best Actor.” As a retired school teacher in his 70s, widower Harry was living in a decaying building where his apartment was a museum of memories — all artifacts of a life that had past. His existence was defined by his daily routine errands where he shared the sarcastic bitterness towards present society with other lonely disenfranchised seniors, by his nostalgia for his lost wife and profession, and finally by his loyal companion — a cat he named Tonto.

The other “lone rangers” he visits on the frontiers of old age search for lost purpose in their lives. They are dismayed over the changes in their lives ranging from lost loved ones to lost careers, ranting about those with greater control who seemed to be the source of their problems, from street muggers and politicians to their own offspring. At first we laugh at their eccentricities, but by the end of the film, they are no longer cyphers in an urban landscape but familiar friends with rich life dramas and current interests we have come to appreciate.

Harry’s opening soliloquy follows a mugging scene, a near hit by a speeding motorist, as he hums the tune “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” to his friend Tonto.

Would you believe it Tonto? Mugged four times this month… It was a wonderful neighborhood. It’s running down. Where would I go and live? I still know a lot of people around here. If you know people, that’s home.

Soon after he drifts to sleep, only to be forcibly evicted by police as a wrecking ball is about to raze his crumbling home.

Freed from this exile to memories, Harry begins an odyssey through the highly stressed, miserable, middle-aged lives of his well-educated children as they struggle with unhappy relationships and careers along with the distress of various other frustrated younger people — all eager to sell Harry things he doesn’t need and to warehouse him away from the mainstream. He wants to live on his own without controls. He wants to travel to new places. He wants to dance with an old lost girlfriend, Jessie, now suffering dementia — but who has flashing moments of recall with him when they dance. He wants to say farewell to the corpse of his lonely close friend, Jacob. He bonds with young people along the way and wants to return to teaching. Yet, with each effort, he is patronized and insulted by middle-aged people in airports, casinos, nursing homes, and morgues as he travels to visit friends. Harry is labelled as a bother to them and a confused, stubborn old man. The scolding refrain of these ageist antagonists as they attack Harry’s defiant desire for independence is “Harry, act your age!”

At same time, Harry also encounters many happy, healthy seniors engaged and enthusiastic about life, ranging from a used car salesman, an organic drug salesman, a Native American medicine man, and a cat sitter. Their retort to the “act your age” admonitions was always “I love my work!”

While we mourn the painful deaths of his close friend Jacob and his loyal buddy Tonto, by the end, we see that through Harry’s odyssey, he has returned to life in the present — regaining his wit and optimism. On the beaches of Santa Monica, as he writes to an old New York friend about his new life as a school tutor, he chases a cat identical to his lost pal Tonto — that takes him to a little girl on the beach who invites him to help her with her sandcastle. We once laughed at Harry, cried with Harry, but now we laugh with him. By the end, the once cynical Harry has returned to the mainstream of life and become the happiest character in the film.

Similarly, one can only imagine Mazursky happy and fulfilled. Soon after Harry & Tonto came out, film critic Richard Corliss reflecting on Blume in Love, I Love You Alice B. Toklas, and Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice wrote for the New York Times, that Mazursky had “created a body of work unmatched in contemporary American cinema for its originality and cohesiveness.” That was before he delivered such landmark social satires as An Unmarried Woman, Moscow on the Hudson, Down and Out in Beverly Hills, Scenes from A Mall, and Enemies: A Love Story, to name just a few classics of the 1980s before even considering his continuing contributions to biting social satire such as Larry David’s Curb Your Enthusiasm. He loved his work and refused to act his age.

Harry’s triumphant mission to be recognized as independent, intelligent contributor through late life was Mazursky’s own game plan. Other landmark films such as Sunset Boulevard or On Golden Pond show surrender to the ravages of age. The songbook of aging is vast but the lyrics offer no answer except the silent suffering of loss: “Sunrise, Sunset” (Fiddler on the Roof); “Turnaround Little Girl” (Perry Como); “When I Was 17” (Frank Sinatra); “The Circle Game” (Joni Mitchell); “No Time Left for You” (The Guess Who); “Time is on My Side” (Rolling Stones); “When I’m 64” (Beatles); “Hello in There” (John Prine); Your Were the Wind Beneath my Feet (Bette Midler). Mazursky offered a battle cry against age — don’t let your spirit die until the machine gives out.

Dylan Thomas advised, “Do not go gentle into that good night. Old age should burn and rave at close of day; rage, rage against the dying of the light.” Many of us struggle with the cruel realities of aging through fear, avoidance, denial and spoofing, but few of us do it at all at once as Mazursky did in celluloid as well as in real life.

As a 20-year-old watching this film with my parents at a suburban Philadelphia theater, I came to further appreciate the later-life needs of seniors, including my parents — my parents as they resisted hasty late-life agendas scripted for them by callous health care providers and other impatient institutions. As a management scholar, I presented research that showed that workers in late life — including even CEOs — have much to offer through their elevated work ethic, accumulated life wisdom, insightful judgment, and mentoring spirit. Truly one of my “oldest” friends, financier Albert H. Gordon continued active through his final days at age 107, with his portfolio up 15 percent in final year of life, 2009, with the markets in turmoil… as well as he had done in 1929. His friend, former Goldman CEO John Whitehead at 92 continues active as well, as his fellow financier and fellow hero in World War II from Normandy Beach, Maurice (Hank) Greenberg, who heads the vibrant CV Starr at age 89. We could add to that the still very active and wise Jack Bogle (85), founder of Vanguard, or the active William Donaldson (83), our 27th Chairman of the SEC. Surely we have seen in the arts and in politics parallel priceless septuagenarians, octogenarians, and nonagenarians as choreographer Martha Graham (97) ; President Ronald Reagan (in office at age 78); Frank Lautenberg as senator until he was 89; and revered diplomatic Averill Harriman (94). Now how could someone seriously question 66-year-old Hillary Clinton’s candidacy on age concerns?

Dignity, independence, and continued contribution are easily as important to us as time for relaxation. Stress reduction is important at all ages. Attentive care for the disabled is vital for all ages but warehousing healthy older people does not reduce stress, and causes injustice plus waste. We need to reconsider our overly therapeutic society’s commercial push for convalescence and infantilizing recreation. Thus, for the last 34 years, I’ve required all my MBA students, largely aspiring leaders in their mid-20 to mid-30s, to view Paul Mazursky’s Harry & Tonto to see the world through the eyes of someone decades older.
