Prince William Visits Homeless Charity Where He Went with Mom Diana as a Boy

Prince William quietly visited a homelessness charity on Monday that was previously supported by his late mother Princess Diana.

The drop-in at St. Vincent’s Centre, run by The Passage charity in London, was part of an ongoing series of visits by William and Prince Harry  to many of the charities associated with the late princess as they observe the 20th anniversary of her death in August.

The last time William headed to The Passage publicly, he met a volunteer who had first encountered him when he was there with his mother in the early 1990s.


Those childhood visits, William said in May last year, had left a lasting impression on him and his brother. William has made fighting homelessness a key area of his public work, and he followed his mother in being patron of another similar charity, Centrepoint.

Last year, Harry made a private visit to Mildmay hospital, where Diana spent time with those battling HIV in the 1990s. Harry has campaigned to smash the ongoing stigma about testing for HIV part of his royal work.

This week, William and Harry will celebrate 20 young people from around the world who have been given Legacy honors by the Diana Award charity that was set up in their mother’s name.

Jackie Collins Auction: Her Daughters Preview Late Author’s Ultra-Glamorous $3 Million Collection

If you’ve ever wanted to be a part of Jackie Collins‘s glamorous legacy, now’s your chance.

Two years after Collins’s life was cut short by breast cancer, her family is continuing to honor the beloved author with an exclusive sale of her prized collections of fine art, sculpture and jewelry that begins today.

PEOPLE recently caught up with Collins’s daughters Tiffany Lerman and Rory Green, who gave us a very special sneak peek of the auction, Jackie Collins: A Life in Chapters, which you can see in the video above. The sale will take place at Bonhams Los Angeles May 16 and 17 and online May 18. (A portion of the proceeds will benefit three organizations close to Collins’s heart: the Malala Fund, Equality Now and WriteGirl.)

In the video, Lerman highlights two of her mother’s favorite pieces of jewelry and a special edition Jaguar which Collins purchased and designed herself.

“This is one of my mother’s favorite pieces of jewelry,” Lerman says of the stunning necklace pictured above. “It’s a diamond and emerald necklace that she designed from broaches that were given to her as birthday gifts from our father . One of her favorite stones is emerald and she used to love to wear this necklace going to the Vanity Fair parties or special occasions, it looked absolutely stunning on her.”

Another prized possession: Jackie’s custom 2002 Jaguar XKR sportscar, which is finished, fittingly, in metallic gold and has only 2,302 miles on it.

“She used the car for special occasions,” says Lerman. “She bought it when she finished one of her books as a special present for herself. She designed all the features entirely at her specification. There are champagne wheels, leather that’s never been used in this type of car before, it’s a beautiful car that hasn’t been driven very much.”

Her sister Rory Green also reveals that their mother had hip taste in music: “She always  CDs in the car including Drake, J.Lo, Usher and Justin Bieber!”

Green says she thinks their mother would be thrilled with the auction, as it pays homage to her mother’s wildly creative spirit. “It is a true celebration of her life and her career and a wonderful memento for her devoted fans,” Green says. “It also is a stunning photographic history of her house and collections. She would also love knowing that a percentage of proceeds from the sale will be supporting three amazing causes, Malala Fund, Equality Now & WriteGirl, all advocating for the empowerment of girls and women, a message extremely close to her heart.”

13 Reasons Why Star Christian Navarro Defends Netflix Series Against Claims It Trivializes Suicide

Christian Navarro, a star of 13 Reasons Why, has defended the Netflix show against criticism from some parents and school officials who say it glamorizes suicide.

Schools across the country have issued warnings to parents over concerns about the show.

At the PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly Upfronts party Monday night, Navarro noted the involvement of mental health experts during production.

“I think they’re not watching the same show. When we were working on it, we had tons of mental health experts on set at all times, our producers were very diligent on making sure that the tone was inclusive and helpful and not harmful,” Navarro, 25, told PEOPLE.

He said he respects the varied opinions, even suggesting it can be a valuable show for parents to watch with their kids.

“I think there’s always going to be controversy. I respect their opinion, especially when it comes from a place of trying to protect their kids. I think they should listen to their children though, this is happening right now all over the world in high schools. I think the parents should watch it with them,” the actor, who plays Tony Padilla on the show, said.

Each episode of 13 Reasons Why — which premiered on Netflix March 31 — follows a series of audio recordings a teen left behind for her classmates and peers explaining why she decided to kill herself. Throughout the series, there are instances of sexual assault, rape, underage drinking, driving under the influence, body shaming and, ultimately, a graphic scene depicting the teen’s suicide.

In April, one of the writers from the Netflix show, Nic Sheff, defended the more graphic scenes, telling Vanity Fair, “Facing these issues head-on—talking about them, being open about them—will always be our best defense against losing another life.”

He added, “I’m proud to be a part of a television series that is forcing us to have these conversations because silence really does equal death.”

And Selena Gomez, who has an executive producer credit, says she took her role in the series very seriously. She has spoken about her affinity for the heartbreaking, yet very relatable, plot and characters, which were drawn from Jay Asher’s 2007 young adult novel of the same.

“I see myself as Hannah so much,” Gomez told The Hollywood Reporter in February. “I wanted it to feel like anyone can see themselves in this.”

David Ross Is ‘Shocked’ He’s Outlasted Simone Biles on DWTS: ‘I Feel Like I’m Taking Her Spot’


David Ross was prepared to be the one going home on Monday night’s episode of Dancing with the Stars Monday night.

“I thought it was us,” the former MLB star told PEOPLE backstage after the reality dance competition’s shocking elimination.

Instead, it was Olympic gymnast Simone Biles who was taken out of the competition by America’s votes.

“My heart hurts a little bit to see Simone go. I’m shocked,” Ross told reporters. “I didn’t feel like I could celebrate onstage because I honestly felt bad. I feel like I’m taking her spot. I don’t know if I should feel that way or not, but I do. This is a family. We’re friends. It’s hard to see anybody go.”

Still, the retired baseball player is happy to be one of the last three stars standing to compete for the Mirrorball Trophy next week with his partner Lindsay Arnold.

“I was just trying to make it past week three. It blows my mind,” he says. “I’m so grateful. People must be voting for me like crazy, which makes me feel good. And I’m getting better at dancing and I’m getting better scores. There is so much that I’m so proud for, Lindsay and I and our partnership and this journey I’ve been on. I didn’t really want to celebrate but I’m happy right now and I’m so thankful.”

Ross, Rashad Jennings and Normani Kordei will compete on the two-night season 24 of Dancing with the Stars, which begins Monday at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

Katy Perry Reveals Why She Cut Off All Her Hair and the Trick She Used to Go to the Bathroom in Her Met Gala Gown

Katy Perry has had a dramatic few months. Not only is she in the midst of teasing her forthcoming album and North American tour, releasing two singles from it already, but she also kicked off May by hosting the biggest fashion event of the year, the Met Gala, arriving in a very over-the-top, custom Maison Martin Margiela gown and headpiece, and recently buzzed off the majority of her bleach blonde hair. A decision which, as she revealed on The Ellen Show on Tuesday, wasn’t entirely for purely aesthetic reasons. She also revealed her number one trick to using the bathroom while wearing some of her more eccentric outfits and it’s, uh, interesting to say the least.

While the pop star’s latest do is right on-trend with a number of other A-list ladies like Kristen Stewart and Zoë Kravitz who also recently shaved off their strands, Perry admitted that the cut had more to do with hair damage than wanting a particular hairstyle. The talk show host joked, “It’s a little beyond the Ellen,” referring to her own signature look, “you went to Ellen and past it.” To which Perry quipped, “It’s like a little Ellen, a little Alfalfa.” But all joking aside, the singer explained, “I did it about a month and some change ago…I don’t know if you’ve ever dyed your hair blonde, and too blonde, sometimes your hair falls out when you go too blonde. So, this is the way I handled it.” But while at first the partially buzzed look was simply a move to save her remaining locks, she’s now grown to love the look as people have told her that, “Now you can really see the beauty of your face.”

As for that major Met Gala entrance she made a couple of weeks ago, Ellen had a few questions that desperately needed answering. Number one, how hard was it to use the restroom once you’re ensconced in that much fabric? Katy gamely replied, “There was a lot of self-control, practice, and GoGirls. You know those little contraptions where you then get to urinate standing up?”

While the host confessed she wasn’t familiar with the product, the “Roar” singer enthused, “I’ve used them in several music videos because I always find myself in this predicament where I have a very extravagant, lavish, unrealistic, unpractical costume on. That’s just me, I guess.” While that particular piece of info might have some fans crying TMI, anyone who’s found themselves strapped into a particularly complicated ensemble might consider the revelation of this contraption a total “Teenage Dream.”

What do you think of Katy’s blonde buzz cut? Have you ever used a GoGirl? Sound off below!

Soccer Star Lauren Holiday Shares Post-Surgery Photo After Getting Brain Tumor Removed

Former United States soccer star Lauren Holiday (née Cheney), who had a tumor successfully removed in October, shared a post-surgery photo coinciding with Mother’s Day.

The two-time Olympic gold medalist was six months into her pregnancy when doctors discovered a benign tumor on the right side of her brain, which had been causing her painful headaches. According to ABC News, doctors induced labor early to expedite Holiday’s brain surgery, which was successfully performed at Duke University Hospital in October after giving birth to daughter Jrue Tyer in September.

“I have been hiding myself from a camera for the past 7 months. I didn’t want anyone to see my paralyzed face, my eye that is now crossed, the bald spots from radiation & my half shaved head. Granted you can’t see any of those things in this picture, just a patch…it’s a huge step,” Holiday began her post, which accompanied her selfie clad in a “Girl Power” shirt.

She continued, “Today reminded me just how incredibly strong women are. The resilience of our bodies, the power of our minds, the ability to put other humans fully before ourselves, our compassionate hearts but most of all our undying love for our families, our friends and our precious babies. I went through the day admiring women at church, at lunch and those just walking down the street. I am so proud to be a daughter, a sister, an aunt, a wife and most of all a mother. Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mamas, Mamas-to-be and future mamas! You are beautiful. You are ridiculously strong. But most of all you are loved. So very loved. ❤️.”

In February, Holiday had credited her daughter with helping her through darker times.

“I have never quite known suffering like I experienced the last 6 months,” Holiday, 29, captioned a photo of her smiling daughter being held up by husband, NBA player Jrue Holiday. “I can remember countless nights repeating ‘there may be pain in the night but joy comes in the morning.’ I remember half believing it and half still in disbelief that this was my life. I memorized scripture and some days my faith felt unshakable and others I was scared to death.”

The former member of the U.S. women’s national soccer team added, “Every time I see this smile I’m reminded that joy does come in the morning. Maybe not the next day, maybe not even the next month but it comes. I can’t imagine what heaven will be like if this is the joy I get to experience on earth.”
