The British royal family announced the death of Prince Philip, whose funeral will be televised for mourners outside the family and United Kingdom to view. Upon the initial announcement, the official statement informed, “Further announcements will be made in due course.” Now, there are more details on exactly how to witness this moment.

The coronavirus pandemic will affect how the ceremony can unfold. For one, the U.K. has restrictions on the number of people allowed to congregate. Additionally, attendees must observe social distancing and quarantining practices, among other regulations. So, how will the event occur?

Overall, Prince Philip’s funeral will be a private event. However, those interested can watch the event from their televisions via BBC One. This news outlet will broadcast the event, which will occur on April 17. Streaming starts around 3 p.m. BST. WorldTimeBuddy clocks this at 10 a.m. EST, for American East Coast viewers. Prince Philip will be laid to rest a little under two months before what would have been his 100th birthday on June 10, a milestone he reportedly had no interest in reaching.

Beyond that, even members of the British royal family planning to attend must follow particular guidelines given the pandemic. Only 30 people can congregate for such a funeral. Among the royals attending, each is expected to wear dark mourning bands as they observe their respective period of mourning the late Duke. Queen Elizabeth recently began hers, officially lasting a week but the whole country’s will last a month.

Despite the tension between Prince Harry, Duchess Meghan, and other core members of the royal family, Prince Harry has returned to the U.K. for Prince Philip’s funeral. Royalty reporter Omid Scobie shared via tweet, “Prince Harry will attend his grandfather’s funeral on Saturday (following all U.S. and U.K. Covid-19 protocols in the process). A source adds that Meghan, who is heavily pregnant, made ‘every effort’ to travel but didn’t receive medical clearance from her physician.” Prince Harry is quarantining at Frogmore Cottage along with Princess Eugenie, her husband Jack Brooksbank, and their new son.

He’s joined by Queen Elizabeth II and her other children, Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, and Prince Edward. Charles, Ann, and Edward’s spouses will also attend. Prince William, Catherine, Duchess of Sussex, Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie, Zara Tindall, Lady Louise Windsor, James, Viscount Severn, and Peter Phillips, who make up the duke’s grandchildren, will also attend. There is currently no word on who among those will bring their respective spouses.

’40s Actress Margaret O’Brien Opens Up About Working With Judy Garland

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

Margaret O’Brien was a child star in the 1940s. Now, Margaret is 84 years old and looks back fondly on those memories. She recalls working with the infamous Judy Garland in Meet Me in St. Louis. The musical came out in 1944.

Margaret said, “I loved making that movie. I almost didn’t make it because I was under contract to make other movies for MGM. And of course, [MGM co-founder Louis B.] Mayer did not want to pay you much! It was a very small salary. But my mother thought, ‘Her pictures are making money. I gotta protect my child.’”

“My mother went into Mr. Mayer’s office and said, ‘I want $5,000 for my daughter,’” she continued. “That’s what MGM’s top stars were earning a week and my films were very successful. My mother wanted to make sure that was in my contract. Of course, he cried. He could cry better than I could when you asked for money!”

Eventually, he gave in because Margaret was one of the most famous child actors at the time! She is glad she was able to appear in the film. She said, “But I went on to do ‘Meet Me in St.’ Louis’ and I loved making that movie. We were very much a family. We all got along and enjoyed working with each other. And I think that’s what made the film such a classic. It was about a Victorian family that was very close. And in real life, we actually were just as close, too.”

Margaret also recalls how wonderful Judy was and how great she was with children. She shared, “She was just wonderful with children. [She] was childlike herself. She loved to jump rope on set with the other children. She always was making me laugh. I just loved her.”

Margaret said she kept in touch with Judy over the years before he passing in 1969. These days she is still friends with Judy’s children. She added, “I certainly loved her and I just worked with her. She was a truly special person. And I never forgot her.”

Tom Hanks’ Brother Has Actually Played Two Of His Iconic Movie Roles

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

Did you know that Tom Hanks‘ brother Jim Hanks has actually played two of Tom’s biggest and most iconic movie roles? While Tom Hanks has been known as a legend in Hollywood, his brother has played his own hand in tackling some of his brother’s biggest roles, including Toy Story‘s Woody and the titular character of Forrest Gump.

And the best part is, most people probably didn’t even realize when it was Jim doing it! According to his official IMDb, Jim was the running double for his brother in Forrest Gump. When the character earns a football scholarship because of how fast he could run, it apparently took two Hanks to capture the running ability of the character.

What’s even more interesting is that Jim has voiced Woody on occasion, but not in any of the four theatrical films, so don’t worry. Sometimes Jim will often fill in for his brother for the voice of Woody on video games, animated shorts, and Toy Story merchandise. For example, he voiced Woody in 2000’s Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins feature.

A lot of people have been wondering since the release of Toy Story 4 if a fifth installment will ever be in the works? Well, never say never. Tom admitted to LADBible that he’s open to making another film, but that given the long gaps in between films in previous years, it may be a while before we ever see Woody and the gang back in theatres. So, there’s a possibility!

Bill Murray Says He Was Tricked Into Appearing In ‘Ghostbusters II’

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

Bill Murray recently shared that he believes he was tricked into appearing in Ghostbusters II. After the success of Ghostbusters, naturally, the studio wanted to make more films. He said he was the most reluctant and wanted the movie to be good, not just make money.

Bill revealed, “I don’t know if [director Ivan Reitman] set it up, but they got us all back together in a room, and really, we hadn’t been together in a room since the movie came out and it was just really, really fun to be together. We were really funny together.”

He continued, “Those are some really wonderful, really funny guys and girls. Sigourney [Weaver] and Annie Potts are some really spectacular women and funny as hell. They got us all together and they pitched a story idea that was really great. I thought, ‘Holy cow, we could make that work.’”

However, when they showed up, the script was different. By the time the cast had signed on to film, the movie was completely different from what they thought it would be! Bill said since they were already shooting they had to figure out how to make it work.

Even though it didn’t work out as he hoped, Bill still loves being a part of the franchise. He is set to return as Dr. Peter Venkman in the new film, written by Ivan Reitman’s son, Jason. Are you excited for the new movie?

Hollywood Feuds That Turned Ugly

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

As long as you’re not involved in them, petty arguments can be entertaining. Whether it’s two co-workers bickering about communal fridge leftovers or reality television stars drunkenly brawling over perceived insults, watching other people feud is a guilty pleasure that we’ve all participated in. Much like everything it does, Hollywood takes personal feuds to the next level.

No matter if it’s sisters trying to outshine each other or friends sleeping with each other’s husbands, tinsel town is home to some of the best squabbles around. Let’s delve into some of the nastiest, meanest, pettiest feuds in Hollywood history. 

RELATED: A Closer Look At Olivia De Havilland’s Ugly Feud With Sister Joan Fontaine

1. Bette Davis vs Joan Crawford

To answer the classic 1980s query “where’s the beef?”— right here, sandwiched between these two golden age Hollywood stars. The feud started way back in 1933 when the announcement of Davis’ breakout Hollywood movie was relegated to the back pages after Crawford publicized her divorce the same day. The movie, Ex-Lady, failed and Davis forever blamed her fellow actress. And if you think that’s petty, just wait. In 1935 Crawford married the man that Davis secretly loved, and a year later mocked Davis’ plain navy blue Oscars dress to her face by sneering, “Dear Bette, what a lovely frock!”

The two women continued to hate each other, and Davis struck back in 1952 when she starred in The Star, a story about a washed-up Hollywood actress desperately clinging to fame that was a thinly veiled depiction of Crawford. The two then strangely agreed to both appear in What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? in 1962, a traumatizing experience that led to outbursts of physical violence from both parties. Death couldn’t even put a damper on this feud – when told of Crawford’s death in 1977 Davis replied, “You should never say bad things about the dead. Joan Crawford is dead. Good.” 

2. Dean Martin vs Jerry Lewis

Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis were a show biz dream team. One was a sultry crooner with the voice of melted butter, while the other was a zany comedic genius who could make anyone laugh. The two teamed up in 1945, and their career soon exploded. By 1951 they were the highest-paid act in show business, but all was not well in paradise. Martin was becoming increasingly frustrated that Lewis was seen as the brains behind the duo, while he was relegated to boring romantic leads in their movies. This tension came to a head after a Look magazine story about the two cropped Martin off the cover entirely.

In a fight, Martin told Lewis that he was “nothing but a f’ing dollar sign to me,” the duo broke up, and they didn’t speak for an astounding 20 years. Fortunately, this story has a happy ending. In 1976 Frank Sinatra organized a surprise appearance by Martin on Lewis’ annual Labor Day telethon. The two embraced, began to banter, and their old chemistry immediately returned. After their reunion, Lewis and Martin talked every day, and Lewis later stated about their 20 year period of silence that, “the stupidity of that, I cannot expound on.” 

3. Olivia de Havilland vs Joan Fontaine

If blood is thicker than water then Olivia de Havilland and Joan Fontaine must have been on some crazy blood thinners, because this sibling rivalry was intense. The pair rose to fame at the end of the ‘30s, with Olivia starring in Gone With the Wind and Joan having her own breakout success in Rebecca. You would think the sisters would be happy for each other, but they were anything but. Joan claimed she was turned down for the role in Gone With The Wind because she was too stylish, at which point she suggested her sister as a replacement.

Then in 1942, both women were nominated for the best actress Oscar. Olivia was favored, but Joan pulled the upset, and Olivia refused to congratulate her younger sister – a scene that played out in reverse five years later when Olivia won her first statue. And there was no late life reconciliation for the two, either. In 1978 Joan said about her sister, “I got married first, got an Academy Award first, had a child first. If I die first she’ll be furious.” 

4. Gwyneth Paltrow vs Martha Stewart

 In 2014 Paltrow was several years into running her extremely popular lifestyle business Goop when Stewart told reporters exactly what she thought of the endeavor. “She’s a movie star. If she were confident in her acting she wouldn’t be trying to be Martha Stewart.” Shots fired. And Stewart didn’t stop there. After Paltrow announced her “conscious uncoupling” from husband Chris Martin, Stewart published a pie recipe entitled “Conscious Coupling” in her magazine. Which is awesomely petty. Paltrow wasn’t one to take this lying down, however, and soon posted her own recipe for “jailbird cake,” a thinly veiled reference to Stewart’s time behind bars. 

If only every rivalry played out in the realm of baked goods, this world would be way more delicious. And the two still haven’t squashed the beef. After Paltrow’s candle called, “This Candle Smells Like My Vagina,” sold out immediately in 2020, Stewart stated that, “I don’t think that’s America. I think it’s a lot of guys who are horny.” 

5. Frank Sinatra vs Shelley Winters

In the early 50s, Shelley Winters was used to getting any man she wanted. Her conquests were both many and legendary. In addition to bedding Errol Flynn and Marlon Brando, Winters claims to have made love with Sean Connery on a train the whole way from Liverpool to London. But her charms were wasted on her co-star in the 1952 film Meet Danny Wilson

Ol’ blue eyes himself, Frank Sinatra, and Winters took an immediate dislike to each other. After a tension-filled day on set Sinatra reportedly called Winters, “that bow-legged b—- of a Brooklyn blonde,” after which she “screamed like a fishwife” and punched him in the face. Not sure exactly what a fishwife’s scream sounds like, but I’d imagine it’s terrifying. In a later interview Winters referred to Sinatra as “a skinny, no talent, stupid, Hoboken bastard.” Their film was a flop, and unsurprisingly the two never worked together again. 

6. Elizabeth Taylor vs Debbie Reynolds

Hollywood royals Elizabeth Taylor and Debbie Reynolds met when they were teenagers coming up in the film industry and soon became fast friends. Reynolds was even matron of honor at Taylor’s third wedding, to producer Mike Todd. So it was only natural that when Todd died in a plane crash only a year later that Taylor’s close friend and Reynolds’ husband Eric Fisher rushed to comfort the grief-stricken star. Comfort her, that is, “with his penis” as Reynolds’ daughter Carrie Fisher so eloquently wrote. Eric Fisher soon abandoned Reynolds and their two young children to marry Taylor, an event that for some reason ended the two actresses’ friendship.

All was not lost, however, and 7 years later when Reynolds and Taylor discovered that they were on the same cruise together, the two decided to have dinner and mend some fences – a reconciliation probably helped by the fact that Taylor had dumped Fisher for Richard Burton. They even starred together in the 2001 movie These Old Broads, although if I were you I’d definitely skip it. 

7. Vivian Vance vs William Frawley

Famous as the best friends of America’s sweethearts Lucy and Ricky Ricardo, it’s a testament to the acting chops of Vance and Frawley that everyone who tuned into I Love Lucy saw them as a loving couple. Because the two hated each other from the moment they met. Vance was outraged that someone 22 years older than her had been cast as her husband, stating quote, “No one will ever believe I’m married to that old coot.” When Frawley got wind of her comments he was incensed and began to openly refer to her as “that b—-” on set.

The two were forced to share the small screen for nine years, which was more than enough time for Vance. Despite its almost guaranteed success, she nixed the idea of a Lucy spinoff about the duo during pre-production, refusing to ever work with Frawley again. The two never buried the hatchet – upon hearing of Frawley’s death in 1966 Vance reportedly exclaimed, “Champagne for everyone!”

Well, there you have ‘em, some of the juiciest feuds in Hollywood history. Do you remember any of these happening? Which famous fight did we leave off? Let us know in the comments below, we can always make a Round 2!

Sophie, Countess Of Wessex, Reports Prince Philip’s Final Hours Were “Peaceful” And “Gentle”

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

Prince Philip, Duke of Duke of Edinburgh passed away on April 9 following a string of health battles that left him hospitalized. He even had to undergo surgery for a preexisting condition so that he might make it through that latest bout. Despite these struggles, Sophie, Countess of Wessex, shared that the duke was able to spend his final moments with peace and comfort.

The prince died at the age of 99, roughly two months short of his 100th birthday. Although royal family members had hopes for Prince Philip’s health, they admitted to surprised grief when he did pass. However, they could feel grateful he passed in what Fox reports was a dignified way.

Countess Sophie of Wessex shed some light into the final moments and passing of Prince Philip. The countess, 56, answered questions outside the Royal Chapel of All Saints, located in Windsor, on Sunday. She had attended a service to mourn the prince’s passing, joined by other members of the royal family.

According to her Prince Philip enjoyed “peace” and a “gentle” period before his passing. “It was right for him and, you know, it was so gentle,” she shared. “It was like someone took him by the hand, and then he went. Very, very peaceful and that’s all you want for somebody, isn’t it?”

With Prince Philip gone, that left an extensive and complexly webbed family to deal with the aftermath. The Countess of Wessex went on, “So I think it is so much easier for the person that goes than the people who are left behind. We are all sitting here looking at each other going ‘this is awful.’ But equally, look at all the tributes. It’s just amazing.”

Family members then took time to honor Prince Philip’s life, impact on their upbringing, their time as adults, and his legacy. “My grandfather’s century of life was defined by service – to his country and Commonwealth, to his wife and Queen, and to our family,” stated Prince William. He plans on honoring his grandfather’s dedication to service, adding, “I will miss my Grandpa, but I know he would want us to get on with the job.”
