The Queen Turns 90

Cel­e­bra­tions were in full force as the Queen marked her 90th birth­day on 21 April. Events were held through­out the year, in­clud­ing TV spe­cials fea­tur­ing K-middy and Prince Harry shar­ing their sto­ries about our monarch and speak­ing of their ad­mi­ra­tion for her. It’s enough to bring a tear to our eye.

obama out

It’s even harder to speak of US Pres­i­dent Barack Obama’s de­par­ture now we know who his suc­ces­sor is, but noth­ing can take away from his speech at his fi­nal White House Cor­re­spon­dents’ Din­ner. Ad­dress­ing the crowd of jour­nal­ists, he didn’t just tackle the se­ri­ous stuff – he also cracked some hi­lar­i­ous jokes be­fore lit­er­ally drop­ping the mic and declar­ing: ‘Obama out!’

Becky v Bey­once

When Bey­oncé re­leased Lemonade, all we could ask was: who is ‘Becky’? Bey’s lyrics seemed to re­late to in­fi­delity, so the ru­mour mill went into over­drive as it was claimed that de­signer Rachel Roy had been hav­ing an af­fair with Jay Z. It’s even been sug­gested that Kris Jenner is ‘Becky’ (we know!).

pur­ple reign

The world suf­fered an­other dev­as­tat­ing loss when it was an­nounced that Prince had died due to an ac­ci­den­tal over­dose at his home in Min­nesota on 21 April. Tributes came pour­ing in from around the world. Thank­fully, his mu­sic lives on.

Kylie’s lip KIT hits

When she launched the Lip Kits in 2015, Kylie Jenner prac­ti­cally caused a riot, with ev­ery shade selling out al­most im­me­di­ately. In April, she launched the glosses – Like, Lit­er­ally and So Cute – which sold quicker than you could say ‘Tyga’.
