Duchess Meghan Takes Her First Royal Trip With The Queen -
Meghan Markle must have made quite an impression on the Queen; she is on her first solo outing with the monarch.
The Duchess of Sussex is traveling with Queen Elizabeth II on the royal train today for a series of engagements. Their stops include marking the opening of a new bridge over the River Mersey near Liverpool. Markle's trip with the Queen is intended to show how warmly she has been embraced by the royal family.
It showed as the royals sat together to watch a children’s recital. The queen smiled broadly as Markle sat, pantyhose on, with her legs in the now dubbed “duchess pose” sitting position. It was made famous by Princess Diana.

ESPN To Honor Fallen Coaches With ESPY -
ESPN is planning to honor three Florida coaches who died while protecting students during the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Shooting.
Scott Beigel, Aaron Feis and Chris Hixon will receive posthumous Best Coach awards at this year's ESPYs ceremony. They were among 17 students and staff killed when a former student opened fire in the Parkland school in February.
Beigel was a teacher and cross-country coach. Feis was a football coach and school security guard, while Hixon was the school's wrestling coach and athletic director. The ESPYs will be held July 18th in Los Angeles.
ESPN vice president Alison Overholt explained, in a press release, that the award breaks with tradition this year, since the coaching honor has "previously gone to coaches who have shown extraordinary leadership of their teams — not for heroism off the field."
