Cover: Meghan Markle meets the monarch! The Suits star ap­par­ently was in­tro­duced to Queen Liz and “it went well,” so no­body got be­headed or any­thing. This comes af­ter Megs and Harry hol­i­dayed in Botswana and Zam­bia — one of those lit­tle tests you put a fu­ture wife through to make sure she’s not a typ­i­cal Hol­ly­wood ac­tress. Sick flick picks: The mag’s fall movie preview seems to con­cen­trate on the un­der­whelm­ing-sound­ing projects (a Justin Long love story, A Bad Moms Christ­mas). Go ahead and co­coon your­self with Net­flix un­til spring. Mother load: A bit of re­lief for gos­sip read­ers: a two-page spread ded­i­cated to Heidi Mon­tag’s baby shower, at­tended by Perez Hil­ton, is a nice peek into a life you’re not one bit jeal­ous of.

IN TOUCH

Cover: The kids get to dec­o­rate their rooms at the Jolie house in L.A. and so it looks like “a cross be­tween a trashed frat house and a DayGlo­cov­ered rave club.” I’m not sure any house with six kids would be wildly dif­fer­ent, and these six — Flum­mox, Hu­midex, Rolodex, Kala­hari, Dix and Mu­gler — have been raised with­out rules. Maybe a visit from grandpa Jon Voight would scare them straight? It’d work on me, any­how. Split dis­turber: A piece on Mel (Scary Spice) Brown is billed as “Hol­ly­wood’s dirt­i­est di­vorce ever” and for once it doesn’t dis­ap­point! Drugs, booze, black­mail, theft of mil­lions and a nanny who sleeps with both of them. (And whose photo looks like a ghost of a mur­der vic­tim star­ing at you from a haunted paint­ing.)

STAR

Cover: I missed the cut again in Best Beach Bod­ies, but there was only so much room in a photo spread that in­cluded the back­sides of both Am­ber Rose and Kim Kar­dashian. The lat­ter in par­tic­u­lar looks sus­pi­ciously like a flota­tion de­vice, but the mag’s real scorn is re­served for dudes who dared to get old: Kurt Rus­sell, Ban­deras, Has­sel­hoff. Walk into the ocean, guys — you’re block­ing the view of Scott East­wood. Ex­pect­ing/pro­ject­ing: A piece on Blake Shel­ton and Gwen Ste­fani’s wed­ding plans in­sists, via an aside, that she’s preg­nant, in the man­ner of a con­spir­acy-minded un­cle who still sneaks it in (“Nice to see the Queen — one of the alien lizards, by the way — meet with that TV ac­tress”).
