Governor General of Canada Thinks It Would Be ‘Marvelous’ If Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Got Married

David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, told ITV that the romance is strengthening ties between the U.K. and Canada, where the American actress films her show Suits and has adopted as a second home.
“I think it would be quite marvellous and I hope it would be quite marvellous for him and obviously it will help to bring us together,” Johnston said. “But, you know, that reflects so many of the people-to-people ties that are so strong. I think about 20% of our citizens would claim British heritage so those ties are very strong.”
Johnston said that he “didn’t know” that Markle, 36, was sitting near him at the opening ceremonies for the Invictus Games in Toronto.
“ was alone but you say, I gather, there was a young lady in the audience who was watching him with great interest,” he said.

Markle was all smiles as she cheered on the athletes in the Paralympic-style Invictus Games for wounded service members from around the world. Meanwhile, Harry sat a few rows away next to First Lady Melania Trump whom he met with earlier in the day.
Toronto has become a special place for the couple. Harry made a secret detour from the Caribbean to spend time with Markle in her adopted hometown in December. The royal couple also spent Easter weekend together in Toronto. Harry also called Toronto a “home away from home” when he met with Johnston.
“Despite the distance, the media attention and everything else, there’s a real ease to their relationship,” a source previously told PEOPLE. “It just works. They are deeply happy.”

Kylie Jenner is teasing the first signs of a baby bump.
The 20-year-old reality star, who is expecting her first child with beau Travis Scott, shared a glimpse of her stomach in an Instagram photo wishing her BFF Jordyn Woods a happy birthday. In the photo — which was taken on Friday but uploaded on Sunday — Jenner rests her hand on her waist, slightly lifting her baggy black sweatshirt to expose a glimpse of her stomach.
“Yesterday was cute,” Jenner captioned the image with Woods and a giraffe. “Hope you had the happiest of birthdays Jordy. Love you forever ever and beyond..”
The makeup mogul posted another photo with several girlfriends on Sunday, where they’re all posing in white bath robes.
“Mornings,” she simply captioned the mirror selfie with a happy face.
One day after sources confirmed to PEOPLE that she is pregnant, Jenner headed to Las Vegas to watch him perform at the iHeartRadio Music Festival. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, who is expecting a baby girl in February, covered up her bump with an oversized black t-shirt and brown plastic pants.
From a VIP platform, Jenner watched Scott, 25, perform with DJ Khaled, Chance The Rapper, Demi Lovato and French Montana at the T-Mobile Arena.
Scott and Jenner are both exciting about becoming new parents.
“It is an unexpected but completely amazing turn of events that she could not be more excited or thrilled about,” a source previously said.
“Everyone is overjoyed for her,” the source added. “This is the happiest she’s ever been.”

Another insider said Scott began telling friends about the pregnancy in July. “He was so excited he couldn’t keep it in,” says the insider. “He’s been so affectionate and protective of Kylie since they found out. He can’t wait to be a dad.”
Jenner has been dating Scott since earlier this year.
Her baby won’t be the only new member joining the famous KarJenner brood: older sister Kim Kardashian West is also expecting via surrogate. Kardashian West shares two other children with husband Kanye West, Saint, who is 21 months old, and daughter North, who turned 4 in June.

Samoas in cupcake form was a thing we never knew we needed, but now it’s the only thing we can think about.
Pillsbury just unveiled Girl Scout Cookie baking mixes, which are available in Thin Mints and Caramel & Coconut – a.k.a. Samoas – flavors. The four new mixes are for baking cupcakes, brownies and blondies — unfortunately, you won’t be able to make actual Girl Scout Cookies, because that would put a lot of 7-year-olds out of business.
“Families can try out their favorite cookie flavors in the form of brownies, cupcakes, and blondies, while they wait for the real thing once a year during Girl Scout Cookie season,” said Girl Scouts of the USA chief revenue officer Barry Horowitz in a statement.
GSC loyalists are, to put it mildly, freaking out.

The mixes, now available nationwide, retail for $3.29 each — almost $2 less than what you’d pay for a box of cookies.

This story first appeared on the U.S. Small Business Administration blog on August 23, 2017. Thank you to Linda McMahon, SBA Administrator, Girl Scouts of Connecticut, and our very own G.I.R.L. and Cookie Boss, Julia!
When I was a Girl Scout, selling cookies meant dragging a wagon full of boxes door to door in my North Carolina neighborhood. I didn’t have online tools or a marketing plan or even a real strategy.
But Julia Vieira Reis, a 12-year-old Girl Scout from Manchester, Connecticut, certainly did. She sold more than two thousand boxes. Her entrepreneurial success earned her recognition as one of the nation’s top cookie sellers of 2017.
I got to meet Julia when she interviewed me about how my Girl Scout experience prepared me for my career in business. She wondered what she and other Girl Scouts could learn from my advice. Turns out, she also had a lot of her own wisdom to share with me – and other entrepreneurs – about what it takes to succeed!
- Set a goal and follow through on a plan. Julia based her sales strategy on the calendar and product availability – building buzz in January with pre-orders and capturing impulse buyers in March. “In January it was a typical month to call people I know and in my mom’s contacts or go door to door.” In February, she delivered pre-ordered cookies and also had extra boxes on hand in case someone wanted to buy more. In March, she manned cookie booths in public places to sell to people with whom she did not already have an existing relationship.
- Have extra inventory on hand when you make deliveries. Don’t get caught empty-handed when someone wants to make an impulse buy. Julia figured out it paid to have extra boxes of cookies when she delivered her pre-orders. It sounds counter-intuitive, but when I was a CEO, I never wanted the staff selling merchandise at events to report a sell-out – how much more product could they have moved if they had only had more on hand?
- Get a business card so customers know how to reach you. Julia asked for a set for Christmas. She handed out her business cards with her mother’s phone number on them when she made a sale or a delivery, just in case a customer had a question or wanted to place another order. “It was a pretty useful tool,” she told me. “I think repeat sales are what helped increase the number of boxes. Some people bought a whole case at a time!”
- Tailor your pitch and have a strategy for the “tough” customers. Not every customer will be an easy sell. Some people may need convincing, and until you get a “no,” there’s a chance for a “yes.” Customers say they don’t like chocolate? Promote non-chocolate alternatives. They don’t eat sweets? Maybe someone in their family does. Julia perfected the pitch that $5 a box was an inexpensive way to treat yourself; if anyone still thought it was too expensive, she pointed out that it averaged just 40 cents per cookie.
- Go where your customers are. If potential buyers are shopping online, that’s where you should be selling them. The “digital cookie” option let customers simply click to buy cookies, and Julia says she worked especially hard to promote those sales. (She had to school me on this tool, which simply did not exist in my own Girl Scout days!)
- Use social media as a marketing tool. Julia made funny videos and cookie-themed parodies of songs that she shared on social media. It got people’s attention and generated buzz for her sales. Social media is so important, especially for businesses working to get off the ground. Entrepreneurs can speak directly to the public about a product. In years past, they’d have to spend money on marketing to get the word out.
“Engineering and science, especially oceanology, so I think maybe marketing could help somewhere in there. If I’m at a company that wants me to sell something, I could help with that,” she said.
“Or maybe starting my own business.”
Perhaps she’ll come back to SBA for help! - Linda McMahon, SBA Administrator

“He was mainly talking to Knoxville, my puppy,” says Stefan Leroy, whose service dog received a princely pat on Sunday.
Leroy adds, “He got to play with him for a little bit. He was saying he was a good boy and beautiful looking.”
The 26-year-old former army sergeant — who lost both of his legs in Afghanistan in 2012 — says Harry, 33, “was encouraging us all.”
For Christy Wise, 30, co-captain of the US Team, it was a chance to exchange some light-hearted banter with the prince as he toured the facility.
“I was carrying my leg and he was ‘Are you carrying you own leg or someone else’s?’ ” she says. “I was like, ‘My own leg this time.’ ”
Wise continues, “He just hangs out with us. He’s all about this. He knows the athletes and is not here to take the picture and leave.”

The serving pilot of Reno, Nevada, severed her right leg when she was hit by a motorboat while paddle-boarding in the sea near Shalimar, Florida, in April 2015. When she took a dive down to swim away from the boat, the propeller cut into her.
She received a bronze medal from Harry following the 100m race. He embraced all the medal-winners in the trackside ceremony.
“I just gave him a hug and tried to keep it short,” Wise adds.

In the 200-meter race later, she came in third, after she stumbled when she kicked her ankle with the prosthetic. And then, in a moment that summed up what the Invictus Games are all about, the other racers waited for her and then hugged her at the finish line.
She says, “Sarah Rudder and I train together and are good friends. It’s all about being out here.”
She is looking forward to rowing on Tuesday. “I usually have an disadvantage because I’m an above-the-knee amputee and the other girls are below-the-knee. But in rowing it kind of evens the playing field a little.”
Leroy and Wise are among around 550 competitors from 17 nations taking part in competition until September 30 in Toronto, Canada.
