Prince Harry Brought Meghan Markle To Buckingham Palace For Some Quality Time With Queen Elizabeth!

A royal engagement is nigh, right?? On Wednesday, it was reported that Prince Harry brought Meghan Markle to Buckingham Palace last week for a two-on-one visit with Queen Elizabeth. Ooh, go on!!

On Wednesday, it was reported that Prince Harry brought Meghan Markle to Buckingham Palace last week for a two-on-one visit with Queen Elizabeth. Ooh, go on!! QUIZ: Are You A Royal Family Expert?? According to Daily Mail, the love birds stopped by the British sovereign's London palace for a private tea with the Queen. It's said the twosome, who have been dating for at least 15 months, arrived at the royal residence in a Ford Galaxy station wagon with blacked out windows. Clearly, Meghan and Harry are trying to keep a low profile. Per the report's columnist Richard Kay, upon their arrival, Meghan and Harry were "whisked up to the Queen's private sitting room" for an hour visit. That's some serious face time, girl!! Although, there are reports that claim Elizabeth and Meghan met during a visit earlier this year to Balmoral Castle in Scotland. Later in the evening, Harry performed some royal duties as he accepted a posthumous award on behalf of his late mother, Princess Diana. The prize at the Attitude magazine awards was to commemorate the late princess' HIV/AIDS activism. We're sure Harry's mother would be so proud of everything he's accomplished -- especially his mature relationship with Meghan. Now, obviously, there's major significance to the Suits actress' sit down with the Queen. Currently, Harry is fifth in line to the throne, which means he needs the Queen's permission to tie the knot. The ginger prince will be pushed to sixth in line when Kate Middleton gives birth to her third child with Prince William! Regardless, locking in his grandmother's approval isn't expected to be a problem, as the Queen simply "adores" Harry. One insider previously noted: "If Harry asks for something, she would say yes as she adores him." All signs are pointing to an engagement as, in addition to this visit, Harry and Meghan made their public debut as a couple last month at the Invictus Games in Toronto. At the event, Harry spent some SERIOUS quality time with Markle's momma, Doria. Not to mention, spokespeople for Kensington Palace and Buckingham Palace both declined to comment on the report. Now, isn't that VERY suspicious??? Honestly, we're just SO ready for these two to be engaged already!!! [Image via Euan Cherry/WENN.].....»»

Meghan Markle Is Slated To Spend Some MAJOR Quality Time With Prince George & Princess Charlotte On Christmas Day!

As we previously reported, Prince Harry and his fiancée are expected to stay with Prince William and Kate Middleton at Anmer Hall over the holidays. This will make it so the engaged couple can spend some quality time with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, as well as, enjoy the holiday festivities that Queen Elizabeth is hosting at her Sandringham estate. Related: William & Kate Release Their 2017 Christmas Card! Apparently, the love birds are eager to see Will and Kate's kiddos, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, open their stockings on Christmas morning. Hmmm, do we smell baby fever??? WE TEASE. The Suits actress and the ginger royal are also expected to attend Wednesday's pre-Christmas lunch at Buckingham Palace. This luncheon allows for the Queen to visit with extended family members who ARE NOT invited to her Norfolk estate. Meghan is certainly transitioning into her role as a royal quite well. In fact, last week, Miz Markle joined Harry at Windsor Castle (AKA their wedding venue) for the staff's holiday party. Many of the royal fam's employees were DELIGHTED to meet the American divorcée. The fact that Markle has been invited to all of these official functions is HUGE, as it breaks from the Queen's rule about family gatherings. Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams recently explained to Entertainment Tonight: "Firstly, it's important to stress that this is a completely new departure from Christmas with reference to the royal family. Normally, the protocol is pretty strict. In the past, when Kate Middleton was engaged to William and also when Mike Tindall was engaged to Princess Anne's daughter, Zara Phillips, they didn't, as [an] unmarried [couple], spend Christmas with the Queen." Well, well. He continued: "Obviously Meghan's parents are in the United States, but the main reason [Markle is invited] is clearly that it's what Harry wished. But I wouldn't be at all surprised if it wasn't the queen's idea, simply because, it's so important to make a new member and a future senior member of the royal family feel welcome, feel at home, and Christmas is the perfect time to do it." Looks like the Queen has a new favorite -- and we're SO about it. [Image via Danny Martindale/John Rainford/WENN.].....»»

According to royal sources in news reports coming out on Sunday, Queen Elizabeth is preparing to abdicate the throne in the coming years to make way for Prince Charles as King. Related: Prince Charles Got Caught Having Phone Sex... The Queen is, of course, 92 years old right now -- and even tough she's in generally good health, it's said that she has told her inner circle of plans to hang up her crown at the age of 95, and pass on the role to Prince Charles. Robert Jobson, the royal commentator for the Daily Mail, had this to say about the early plans being made for the move (below): "I have spoken to a number of high-ranking courtiers who made it clear that preparations for a transition are moving ahead at pace. They have all confirmed that a Regency with Charles taking the lead is now, at the very least, a real possibility." Wow. That's a big move! Photos: Prince Harry & Meghan Markle's Love Story! One senior former member of the Royal Household also added more information about the Queen and her apparent decision to wind things down in her rule (below): "Out of the profound respect the Queen holds for the institution of monarchy and its stewardship, Her Majesty would want to make sure that she has done everything she can for her country and her people before she hands over. She is dutiful to her core. ... Her Majesty is mindful of her age and wants to make sure when the time comes, the transition of the Crown is seamless. I understand the Queen has given the matter considerable thought and believes that, if she is still alive at 95, she will seriously consider passing the reign to Charles." Impressive!

Prince Harry Is Essentially Giving Meghan Markle Princess Lessons À La The Princess Diaries!

Looks like Meghan Markle needs to pop in a copy of The Princess Diaries!

However, the free spirited actress is expected to deal with quite the "minefield" once she officially [...] Looks like Meghan Markle needs to pop in a copy of The Princess Diaries! Between meetings with Queen Elizabeth II and official public outings as a couple, it seems Prince Harry and the Suits actress are destined for an engagement. However, the free spirited actress is expected to deal with quite the "minefield" once she officially transitions into becoming a royal. Related: Meghan's Half Sis IS Writing A Memoir In order to make the transition from commoner to princess a smooth one for Miz Markle, it's said the royals are schooling her in the ways of British aristocracy. Apparently, the royal family playful refers to themselves as the "Firm," since there is no special school for learning how to be a member of the privileged brood. Where's Julie Andrews -- excuse us, Queen Clarisse Renaldi -- when you need her?? Thankfully, the ginger prince has been dedicated to educating his lady about his lifestyle. Per British writer Katie Nicholl, the 33-year-old has been a mentor of sorts for Meghan. She told The Post: "He knows how daunting this will be for Meghan and he's keen for her to be relaxed in the company of senior royals." Smart, smart. Reportedly, before the teatime visit at Buckingham Palace, Harry likely informed Markle of all the protocols that she should follow. Nicholl continued: "Harry will have made sure Meghan knew how to address the queen and how to behave in her presence. He calls her ‘Granny,' but after Meghan had curtsied and called her ‘Your Majesty,' she would have reverted to ‘ma'am.' It seems strange to mere mortals, but it is how [Princess] Kate addresses her." How formal!! Although the Suits star is encouraged to be herself, she is expected to act with the manners and grace of a royal. Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief of Majesty Magazine, added: "She will always have to remember, in public at least, that she is royalty and certain behaviors are expected... It's going to be difficult for her because she is an independent career woman who [won't] really like being told what to do." You listenin', Meghan?? The American divorcée will also be required to learn the British rules for functioning in society. Seward relayed: "American manners are different than British manners. [She] can't walk down the street eating or chewing gum... We hold our cutlery differently. It's a whole different culture." This is quite the undertaking. Regardless, it's not like the 36-year-old hasn't had experience dealing with the public. As an actress and an activist, Meghan has had extensive media training and can speak eloquently in public. Charles Rae, former royal correspondent for Britain's Sun, informed The Post that Markle has been "studying hard" to learn everything. QUIZ: Are You A Royal Family Expert?? He explained: "She has practically been living at Kensington Palace whenever she is in London and will have seen the routine that goes on with the butlers and servants." The industry vet will also learn from the royal protection squad on how to interact with unruly fans. Rae noted: "She will learn how to cope if someone [in a crowd] comes on too strong. Ever since John Lennon was shot, the royals have been told never to rebuff anyone. Members of the family, including the queen, have had assassination attempts against them in the past, and no chances will be taken with Meghan." Intense stuff. Charles also mentioned that the TV starlet's acting career will be "a thing of the past." If you're still not convinced that Harry and Meghan are engagement bound, reports suggest that the brunette stunner's presence at either the upcoming memorial service for Remembrance Sunday or the Sandringham Christmas celebrations means the couple is serious AF. SoOoO, be sure to keep your ears to the ground, Perezcious readers!! [Image via WENN.].....»»

Meghan Markle Has Met The Queen! Is A Royal Wedding On The Horizon?

While it took Kate Middleton five years to be introduced to the monarch, Harry has been keen on getting his new girlfriend facetime in with his beloved grandma -- and opportunity struck earlier this month! Related: Tabloid Ordered To Pay Kate $120K In Topless Photo Lawsuit! The introduction came on September 3, following Harry and Meghan's three-week vacation in Botswana and Zambia -- a "trip of a lifetime," as one source put it -- when the 33-year-old prince whisked the actress away to the family's estate in Scotland. With Harry's father Prince Charles and stepmother Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall staying at their 53,000-acre estate, the prince "decided to take Meghan to visit as he hadn't been up yet all summer," the source explained to Us Weekly. But, according to the insider, Harry had an ulterior motive for bringing the Suits star to Birkhall for the two-day trip: "He wanted to introduce Meghan to the queen." Sneaky prince! Photo: Prince William Drops George Off For First Day Of School Solo A day after arriving on September 2, the duo traveled seven miles away to Balmoral Castle, the queen's summer residence, for the big courtesy -- which Meghan passed with flying colors. The source said of the introduction: "It went well. It'll no doubt be the first of many encounters." The next encounter could involve the planning of a royal wedding. Harry allegedly intended to propose during the African getaway -- creating a ring using diamonds for a brooch that formerly belonged to his mother Princess Diana, no less -- and select palace aides have already started prepping for an engagement announcement. The source dished: "These things are planned well in advance; it's not easy to roll out that kind of news. Everyone knows how happy Harry is and is excited for the day it's announced." But for now, the two are celebrating a successful visit with the most powerful family member: "The entire weekend was a success. [Harry] was able to introduce someone he loves to someone he cares for deeply." The source added that despite Meghan's common background (she was raised by a clinical therapist and a lighting director), the actress "fits perfectly into the family" and "gets on fabulously with Charles, as do she and Camilla." Now that it's confirmed the LA native can hang with the Windsors, Harry has no reason not to pull the trigger. The source continued: "Meghan and Harry are in such a good place — Africa took their relationship to a whole other level. They're just crazy about each other." Sounds like the family will suit up for another royal wedding before we know it! [Image via Ivan Nikolov/Euan Cherry/WENN.].....»»

Photos: Game Of Thrones Cast In Between Seasons 6 & 7 While Arya Stark impressively took out the entire Frey clan during last week's GoT episode, another famous family faced destruction during Sunday night's showing of the HBO drama. As promised, the battle on the Narrow Sea brought all kinds of bloodshed, but not until the very end of the episode. So, strap in, and discover everything that went down during season seven's second episode, titled Stormborn. Alliances Are Made And Solidified During a dark and stormy night at Dragonstone, Daenerys Targaryen unexpectedly grills Varys over his history of flitting from one ruler to the next. After vowing his loyalty to the Mother of Dragons, Daenerys invites the eunuch to stay on as a member of her small council -- but promises that if he crosses her she'll burn him alive. Fair enough. It's almost as if Melisandre's ears started tingling at the mention of burning people as she appears at Dragonstone to give the Targaryen queen some advice. The Red Woman fills Daenerys in on the prophecy of Azor Ahai (you know the savior who has been prophesied to be reborn and save everyone). While everyone assumes the savior is meant to be a male prince, Daenerys' gal pal and translator Missandei explains that the term prince in the prophecy is actually gender neutral. Well, this explains why the red priestess has come to serve Daenerys. After capturing the Queen's attention, Melisandre advises the royal to reach out to Jon Snow, King of the North, as she's certain he has a role to play in the prophecy too. Daenerys' hand Tyrion Lannister gets excited at the idea of forging an alliance with Ned Stark's bastard/secret nephew as they need more allies in Westeros. Daenerys listens to her advisers and sends a raven to Winterfell and invites Snow to "bend the knee." Unsurprisingly, those in Winterfell are nervous to accept the invitation as every time a ruler in the North leaves, they die. At first, Jon is talked out of going by his sister Sansa Stark as she's wary of the mysterious Dragon queen. However, after receiving a raven from his good buddy Samwell Tarly about how there is dragonglass to be found at Dragonstone, the bastard King decides to head South. Now, this understandably disappoints the lords in the North, but they need dragonglass to defeat the zombie White Walker army. Thus, Jon puts his sister in charge -- pleasing Sansa and Petyr Baelish (AKA Littlefinger). Littlefinger tries to have a pow-wow with Snow, but makes things awkward when he professes his love for the King's little sister. In response to Petyr's creepy proposal, Jon shoves the lord against a wall and warns him to stay away from Sansa. Excuse us as we go swoon for a second. Jon then mounts his horse and peaces for Dragonstone. Hopefully, this isn't the last time he sees Winterfell!! Dr. Tarly's In The House Daenerys' loyal sworn sword, Ser Jorah Mormont is currently at the Citadel where Samwell is studying up on dragonglass. Why?? Well, because, the knight is looking for a cure for greyscale. After one grumpy Arch-Maester refuses to hear Tarly out about a radical treatment plan, it appears as though Jorah is doomed. But Sam, being the rule breaker he is, shows up late at night to treat Mormont because he knew the sick knight's father through the Night's Watch. The medical procedure is gross, painful, and uncomfortable to watch (be glad you missed it). Regardless, Tarly finishes the surgery -- yet it's still unclear if the treatment was successful. Arya Has Her Own Game Of Thrones Reunion After running into her old pal Hot Pie, Arya Stark learns that her favorite brother (cousin?) has taken back Winterfell and is now King of the North. This news completely derails the assassin on the rise's plan to murder Queen Cersei Lannister as she decides to head North to reunite with her family. Later in her journey, Arya is surrounded by a pack of wolves led by her long lost direwolf, Nymeria. The young Stark asks her direwolf to accompany her back to Winterfell, but the wolf turns and runs off into the woods. Like Arya, Nymeria has changed a ton over the course of seven seasons. Stark continues on her journey home, but if she makes it, we're not sure she'll be able to stay in one place. She's been through too much. Cersei Lannister, Queen Of Public Relations Amid the news that Daenerys has landed in Westeros, Cersei summons the remaining lords at her disposal and begs them to help her stop the Targaryen's impending army. In order to rally the lords to her side, the Lannister queen brands Daenerys as the mad offspring of crazzzy King Aerys II. Cersei, who is clearly shaken up over the idea of facing dragons, is then comforted by her sidekick Qyburn as he shows her a new weapon he's working on to defeat the dragons. NOOOOO! Back To Dragonstone Feeling antsy to take the Seven Kingdoms, Daenerys has a meeting with her powerful AF squad --including Ellaria Sand, Yara Greyjoy, and ​Olenna Tyrell. The crew argues about how best to use the dragons and their giant army. While the ladies want to rage fire rain on King's Landing, Tyrion advises that they only uses soldiers from Westeros for the invasion as it'll seem more like a civil war and not like an outside take over. Daenerys agrees with the Imp, as she orders that the Unsullied and Dothraki army will seize Cersei's homeland of Casterly Rock. Whereas the Greyjoys and Ellaria are commanded to lay siege on King's Landing, which will likely starve out Cersei into surrendering. Despite agreeing with the game plan, Olenna tells Daenerys that the lords of Westeros are sheep and will follow whom ever they fear most. The Queen of Thorns quips: "Are you a sheep? No. You're a dragon. Be a dragon." *Slow claps* As for Missandei and Grey Worm, they take their flirtationship to the next level as they share a passionate night together since the Unsullied captain is Casterly Rock bound. It's hot, and that's all we'll say on the matter. The Battle On The Narrow Sea While en route to pick up the Dornish army for a siege on King's Landing, the Greyjoy fleet is discovered by their evil uncle Euron Greyjoy (who has built his own massive armada). The battle is bloody and brutal and some of our favorites die -- including Obara and Nymeria Sand. Ellaria and her daughter Tyene are captured and taken hostage. Well there goes half of the Dornish royal family. Yara does everything in her power to take down her psychotic uncle, but to no avail. After an epic tousle, Euron overpowers Yara and holds a blade to her throat. Theon witnesses this and immediately has a Reek flashback. Yara sheds as single tear as her brother jumps overboard like a coward and hides from the savage armada. Oof. Like we said, a LOT happened. Be sure to let us know YOUR favorite moment from the episode (below)! You know you have one….....»»

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Aren"t A ~Regular~ Royal Couple, They"re A Cool Royal Couple!

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are doing their royal engagement their way! It's no secret the longtime bachelor and the Suits actress don't have the most traditional relationship — but that's why they're so fun to watch!

It's no secret the longtime bachelor and the Suits actress don't have the most traditional relationship -- but that's why they're so fun to watch! Related: Meghan Markle Wants To Stop All The Fucking Swearing Here are just a few examples of how the engaged duo are making their own rules when it comes to royal nuptials (below)! -- Per Harry's request, Queen Elizabeth II granted permission for the 36-year-old actress to attend Christmas at Sandringham House. For those of you paying attention, Kate Middleton didn't even do this until after she was married to Prince William. But a source noted to Us Weekly: "Given that Meghan doesn't have family in the U.K., it's only right." -- Although royal biographer Ingrid Seward says "there is no protocol" when it comes to PDA, we almost never see William and Kate nuzzle up like Harry and Meghan do. We mean, these two held hands AND kissed at the September Invictus Games in Toronto! Gasp! -- Meghan's style is very different from the women before her. For instance, she wore a dress with a sheer top for engagement portraits and stepped out without panty hose on November 27. A palace insider said of her decision to bare her legs: "Pretty much all of the royal women since as far back as I can remember [have worn them], but there isn't actually a rule." -- Harry and Meg's wedding ceremony will take place at St. George's Chapel, which is way more low-key than William and Kate's big day at Westminster Abbey. An insider said: "The last thing Harry wants is pomp and pageantry." Not to mention, the actress will have a "maid of honor" instead of the traditional "chief of bridesmaids," and will potentially have her mother walk her down the aisle: "Don't expect a royal wedding by numbers. For them, it's about keeping it personal." Do you, bbs! [Image via Danny Martindale/WENN.].....»»

Las Vegas Shooter"s Girlfriend Finally Speaks, Says Paddock Was "A Kind, Caring, Quiet Man"

After Sunday's Las Vegas attack, the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history, people are looking everywhere for some explanation. Unfortunately, so far there doesn't seem to be any, other than Stephen Paddock just decided one day to use the ability to buy a ton of assault weapons and kill as many people as he could. Photos: Here [...] After Sunday's Las Vegas attack, the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history, people are looking everywhere for some explanation. Unfortunately, so far there doesn't seem to be any, other than Stephen Paddock just decided one day to use the ability to buy a ton of assault weapons and kill as many people as he could. Photos: Here Are All The Las Vegas Shooting Victims Identified So Far There does seem to be some question as to how much his girlfriend knew about his plans. The FBI is currently investigating Marilou Danley, whom Paddock apparently sent away to the Philippines before the attack. On Wednesday, we got our first words from Danley herself, who released a statement saying she was "devastated" by the news that her boyfriend, a "kind, caring, quiet man" had done such a horrible thing. She also claims she had no knowledge of Paddock's plans and thought the money he wired her was his "way of breaking up with" her. She explains she returned to the country voluntarily in order to fully cooperate. Read her entire statement for yourself (below): "I am devastated by the deaths and injuries that have occurred and my prayers go out to the victims and their families and all those who have been hurt by these awful events. I have faith in God and I will continue to pray for everyone who has been harmed or hurt. I am a mother and grandmother and my heart breaks for all who have lost loved ones. I knew Stephen Paddock as a kind, caring, quiet man. I loved him and hoped for a quiet future together with him. He never said anything to me or took any action that I was aware of that I understood in any way to be a warning that something horrible like this was going to happen. A little more than two weeks ago, Stephen told me he found a cheap ticket for me to the Philippines and that he wanted me to take a trip home to see my family. Like all Filipinos abroad, I was excited to go home and see family and friends. While there, he wired me money, which he said was for me to buy a house for me and my family. I was grateful, but honestly, I was worried that first the unexpected trip home and then the money was a way of breaking up with me. It never occurred to me in any way whatsoever that he was planning violence against anyone. I have not made a statement until now because I have been cooperating with the authorities. I voluntarily flew back to America because I know that the FBI and the Las Vegas Police Department wanted to talk to me and I wanted to talk to them. I will cooperate fully with their investigation. Anything I can do to help ease suffering and help in any way, I will do. Please respect my privacy and my family's privacy." What do you think of Danley's statement?

While this week's episode of Game of Thrones, titled The Queen's Justice, might not have had an epic fight scene, there was plenty of blood shed. It's like the GoT creators are on a mission to kill off all of our favorite characters... but let's not get ahead of ourselves. Related: GOT Star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau Screwed By His Former Manager! Sunday night's showing of the HBO drama picked up right where we left off with Jon Snow Dragonstone bound, Sansa Stark ruling Winterfell, Cersei sending Euron Greyjoy's armada to eliminate her enemies, etc. So, obviously, there was a lot to follow up with during The Queen's Justice. Let's not waste anymore time and jump right in... A Deathly Kiss As promised, Euron returned to King's Landing with an epic gift for his (potential) fiancée, Queen Cersei. The gift in question was the woman responsible for her daughter Myrcella's death, the one and only Ellaria Sand. Greyjoy presented the villainous queen with his captives, which also included Ellaria's daughter Tyene Sand and his rebellious niece Yara Greyjoy. The queen was grateful AF for her present, but was still not willing to commit to getting engaged to Greyjoy -- that probably has something to do with the fact that she's still screwing her brother. Nonetheless, Cersei promised Euron that he'll have everything his heart desires once the war is won. She then spent a little one on one time with the Sands where she avenged her daughter's death by killing Tyene with the same poison used on the late princess. However, being monster she is, Cersei informed Ellaria that the poison is meant to bring about a slow death -- meaning Ellaria will watch as her daughter rots away. Savage. Samwell Tarly Graduates Med School After curing Ser Jorah Mormont's deadly greyscale infection, Samwell Tarly and the fallen knight try and pretend that the Daenerys Targaryen lackey magically got cured over night. While Sam's boss was clearly annoyed he disobeyed orders to let Jorah die in peace, the Archmaester tells Mormont to be on his way to be reunited with the Mother of Dragons. Oh, and the Archmaester only slightly reprimanded Harry Potter, excuse us, Mr. Tarly. A Stark Reunion Sansa Stark was actually killing it as Lady of Winterfell when her brother Bran Stark returned home. As many believed that the physically handicapped Stark was dead, Sansa was overcome with emotion at the sight of her brother. During a candid chat by the Godswoods, Sansa admitted it's Bran's birthright to run Winterfell as he is Ned Stark's last living full blooded son. Bran then informed his sis that he has ZERO interested in running the northern castle as he's too busy being the three eyed raven -- a concept both the audience and Sansa haven't really figured out. In order to prove that he's changed and become a psychic (or whatever), Bran revealed to Sansa that he saw what happened to her on her wedding night to Ramsay Bolton. This made Sansa, rightfully, uncomfortable and she bounced from the convo to go run Winterfell some more. Fire And Ice Come Together The meeting between Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow was surprisingly underwhelming as the two monarchs spent most of their initial convo bickering over titles. Pretty much, Jon refused to "bend the knee" as his people elected him to be King in the North and Daenerys wasn't okay with that. Not to mention, Daenerys was too busy focusing on her war with Cersei to believe Jon when he revealed that a White Walker army was heading for Westeros. Although, tbh, all we wanted was for Daenerys and Jon to figure out they're related -- but they're gonna need Bran for that revelation. Anywho, upon learning that the Sands and the young Greyjoys were demolished at the battle of the Narrow Sea, the Mother of Dragons decided to make a gesture of goodwill towards the Northern King as she gave him and his men permission to mine Dragonstone for the White Walker killing dragonglass. See we CAN all get along! The Queen Of Thorns No More Despite all their planning, Daenerys' small council hasn't been having the best of luck when it comes to battles. While the Unsullied's invasion of Casterly Rock was supposed to be an easy win, it was almost too easy as Jamie Lannister pulled most of the Lannister forces from the fort and sent them on a bloody mission to Highgarden. The Lannister army destroyed the Tyrell footmen and the elderly matriarch was left alone in her huge castle. Jamie and Olenna pow wowed for a bit before the one handed soldier shared that death was her destiny. Like the badass she is (well, was) the Queen of Thorns accepted her fate, but not before dropping some truth bombs. For starters, she called Jamie out for having a fucked up sexual relationship with his twin. After calling Cersei a "monster," Olenna swallowed the poison provided by Jamie and also revealed that SHE was the one who poisoned Joffrey at the Purple Wedding. Snap! Snap! This tidbit left Jamie visibly shaken as he stormed out of the room. We have a feeling he's heading Cersei's way as the Queen spent a lot of time and energy convincing people that their brother Tyrion and Sansa Stark were responsible for the late king's passing. Dramaaaaa! Like we said, a LOT happened. Be sure to let us know YOUR favorite moment from the episode (below)! You know you have one….....»»
