    • QUEEN BIDS FAREWELL TO PRINCE PHILIP, PRINCES WILLIAM AND HARRY RECONNECT

      Queen Elizabeth sat alone during her husband Prince Philip's funeral on Saturday. The emotional, but intimate funeral was held at St. George's Chapel on the grounds of Windsor Castle, with 30 attendees celebrating the life of the 99-year-old.

      All eyes were on Philip's estranged grandsons, Princes William and Harry, who saw each other for the first time since Harry and his wife Meghan Markle stepped away from their senior royal roles, and shared an explosive discussion with Oprah Winfrey, in which Harry alluded to his estrangement from William, and accused royals of racist behavior.

      The Queen, who was married to Philip for 74 years, was at the center of the funeral, which was muted and didn't include singing among congregants, due to health restrictions stemming from the pandemic. Members of the congregation sat six feet apart and wore masks. She placed a handwritten note on top of his funeral, which she signed Lilibet, a nickname she was given as a child. Philip was the last person alive who called her that name, according to reports.

      HARRY & WILLIAM

      Harry and William walked with William's wife Kate Middleton out of St. George's and talked in a friendly way. These optics were quite different than the beginning of the day, when they marched in the royal procession rigidly, separated by their cousin Peter Philips. William reportedly requested that they be separated in the procession amid ongoing frostiness in their relationship.

      "They know it is not about them on Saturday – it is about honoring their grandfather's memory and supporting their grandmother," a royal source previously told The Daily Telegraph. "I would be extremely surprised if that wasn't front and center of both their minds. They will be keen to spend time together as a family, in the same time zone for once."

      OUTSIDE

      While only 30 people were allowed inside, more than 700 military personnel provided ceremonial support outside in honor of Philip's decorated military career. Members of the Royal Navy, Royal Marines, British Army and Royal Air Force were all in attendance.

      His coffin, draped with his personal flag, his sword, naval cap and a wreath of flowers on top, was taken to the chapel from Windsor Castle in a procession led by the Band of the Grenadier Guards.

      Outside of his funeral, an unidentified woman was apprehended by police after she disrupted the service and ran onto the road shouting "save the planet" as mourners stood by weeping. She also reportedly attempted to climb the statue of Queen Victoria outside of the chapel.

      Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward were among the family members in attendance inside. Meghan is pregnant with her second child with Harry and stayed at home, per doctor's orders. The service was conducted by the Dean of Windsor, the Right Reverend David Conner, and the archbishop of Canterbury Welby. Ecclesiasticus 43 and John 11 were among the readings.

    • SCOTT RUDIN APOLOGIZES, STEPS ASIDE FOR BULLYING BEHAVIOR

      Scott Rudin has announced that he is stepping back from Broadway productions following an explosive expose in The Hollywood Reporter which documented his allegedly abusive behavior.

      The 17-time Tony winner broke his silence Saturday, sharing a statement with the Associated Press: "After a period of reflection, I've made the decision to step back from active participation on our Broadway productions, effective immediately. My roles will be filled by others from the Broadway community and in a number of cases, from the roster of participants already in place on those shows."

      Among the allegations in the report: Rudin threw glass bowls, staples and baked potatoes at former employees, also hitting one over the head and causing a trip to the ER.

      He did not deny the allegations. "Much has been written about my history of troubling interactions with colleagues, and I am profoundly sorry for the pain my behavior caused to individuals, directly and indirectly. I am now taking steps that I should have taken years ago to address this behavior," he said.

      In addition to "The Music Man," Rudin's current slate of Broadway shows includes "The Book of Mormon," "To Kill a Mockingbird" and a revival of "West Side Story." It was unclear if Rudin would also step back from producing films, which includes the upcoming "The Humans," starring Steven Yeun and Amy Schumer, and "The Tragedy of Macbeth," starring Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand.

      Several professional organizations, including the Actors' Equity Association, are demanding more than an apology and a stepping back.

      "We hope that Scott Rudin will also release his staff from any nondisclosure agreements they may have signed as a condition of employment," the organization said. "This is an important step in creating truly safe and harassment-free theatrical workplaces on Broadway and beyond."

    • TWITTER REACTS AS BILL MAHER & SHARON OSBOURNE VENT ABOUT CANCEL CULTURE

      Bill Maher and Sharon Osbourne downloaded over her ouster from CBS' The Talk. Osbourne blamed her "disgruntled" former co-hosts for forcing her off the talk show amid an uproar over her race-tinged debate with Sheryl Underwood.

      Their debate stemmed from her defense of her friend Piers Morgan, who was being accused of racism over his treatment of Meghan Markle. She claimed that she was being called a racist simply because she supported Morgan.

      Osbourne's conversation with Maher was the first time she discussed the situation publicly since she left The Talk on March 26th after 11 years.

      After the March 10th episode where Osbourne and Underwood went head to head, former co-hosts Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete accused her of using racist and homophobic slurs.

      On HBO's Real Time With Bill Maher, both lambasted "woke language" and sensitivity around race. She also denied being racist: "I'm used to being called names. A racist is one I will not take."

      She also said that while she'd be fine, she worried about the implications of "cancel culture": "I'm doing just fine. What about the people that are cut from the knees down who can't afford to get lessons now on what's politically correct? What happens to them? It's not fair. It isn't about being a racist. It's maybe not knowing what is correct and woke for your language that day. It changes from day to day what is correct."

      Osbourne also dubbed Prince Harry the "poster boy of white privilege."

      Twitter reacted with horror. Bishop Talbert Swan: "Bill Maher recently had Megyn Kelly on complaining about Black ‘victimhood' and how hard it is to be rich white millionaires in woke america. He continued his Mayonnaise Tears Tour with Sharon Osbourne complaining about cancel culture. Racism needs to be canceled."
