On this day one year ago, the world lost Carrie Fisher. The legendary actress was most remembered for her iconic role as Princess Leia in the original Star Wars trilogy. She most recently reprised that role in Disney’s continuation of the saga.

Though she is gone, Star Wars fans fondly remembered their princess on the anniversary of her death. They paid tribute with heartfelt messages and original fan art.




Fisher’s Star Wars co-star Mark Hamill also shared memories of his friend. On Twitter he posted personal photos of them together and a line from Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Fisher’s final movie.


The internet has been buzzing about the upcoming British royal wedding between Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle. Today, however, excitement turned into controversy over the guest list.

Prince Harry and former President Barack Obama have been close friends for years, but rumor has it the politician will not be invited to his pal’s wedding — because of Donald Trump. Multiple U.K. newspapers recently reported that British officials are concerned about ruining relations with the United States should the royal couple invite Obama to the wedding and not President Trump.

Adding to the controversy, Prince Harry would not give a straight answer on the official guest list while talking to BBC’s Radio 4’s Today show. “We haven’t put the invites or the guest list together yet, so who knows whether he’s going to be invited or not,” the prince said. “I wouldn’t want to ruin that surprise.”

Trump supporters were outraged by the idea that Obama would get an invite over the current president. In contrast, others found the controversy amusing.



While Prince Harry and Meghan Markle get say in who they invite to their wedding, the British government must also be consulted.
