Prince Harry has appeared in a new video message, filmed from his mansion in Los Angeles, during the Opening Ceremony of the 23rd International AIDS Conference on Tuesday.
Speaking from the garden of his new home that he shares with wife Meghan and one-year-old son, Archie, Harry gave a virtual speech for his charity Sentebale.
“For those who have been affected by HIV and AIDS, the examples of resilience within one’s self and the community, have been felt and fostered for decades.”
Prince Harry set up Senteable, which means forget-me-not, Princess Diana‘s favorite flower, with Prince Seeiso in 2006 after learning about the disease during his gap year in 2004.
Meghan and Harry have shared a number of video messages from LA since lockdown was introduced, but this it the first time we’ve seen the garden.
The couple is currently living in Tyler Perry’s $18 million home, and the actor and director is said to have given the royal couple the run of the expansive pad, which sits in an exclusive gated community called the Beverly Ridge Estate.
The house Tuscan-style villa boasts eight-bedrooms and 12 bathrooms and was custom-built by Perry after he bought the 22-acre site back in 2004. (ET Canada)
Jude Law Might Be the Next Captain Hook in Disney’s Live-Action Peter Pan Movie
Jude Law is reportedly in talks to play the villainous Captain Hook in Disney’s live-action Peter Pan movie, Peter Pan & Wendy, based on J.M. Barrie‘s classic novel.
This latest live-action adaptation of the boy who wouldn’t grow up is being targeted for a theatrical release, unlike the Lady and the Tramp live-action remake that premiered on Disney+ earlier this year.
Pete’s Dragon helmer David Lowery, who co-wrote the script with Toby Halbrooks, is set to direct.
Production is expected to begin this Summer in Vancouver, Canada. As of now, there is no official release date for Peter Pan, but we hear the studio was aiming for a 2021 theatrical release before the COVID-19 outbreak. (Variety)
