Prince Harry Had the Most Relatable Setback Tuesday Morning Ahead of Invictus Event. We've all been there! On Tuesday morning, Prince Harry arrived at the Honourable Artillery Company in London to attend the launch of the British team soon heading off to the next edition of the Invictus Games. However, the Prince unfortunately greeted the players a little bit late due to unforeseen circumstances -- traffic! During one of the group photos, Harry came in late apologizing to the team for getting stuck in traffic. In a video posted to Twitter, you can see Harry jog into the photo before cracking a joke and waving at the cameras as an attempt to apologize for his tardiness. Like the pro he is, Harry just jumped right in the photo without missing a beat. Prince Harry created the Invictus event in 2014 when he was in the army, and it's a cause that remains close to his heart, so there was definitely no ill will for his slight lateness. The Invictus Games is a global sporting event fo…


Letting life take its course. Halsey spoke out for the first time about her split from Yungblud after she confirmed her romance with Evan Peters. "Sometimes. people just break up," the Grammy nominee, 25, wrote in a since-deleted tweet on Monday, October 28. "It doesn't mean someone cheated or something bad happened or someone f--ked up. sometimes. it just happens. because life is constantly changing. and adults stay friends and move on. In a second tweet, she added, "Now u know what u know ." Halsey debuted her relationship with the alt-rock singer, 22, on Instagram in January. While it is unclear when the former couple broke up, Us Weekly exclusively revealed in late September that the "Without Me" songstress had moved on with the American Horror Story star, 32. Halsey -- who jokingly tweeted about starting a petition "for Evan Peters to date me" in 2013 -- was spotted getting cozy with the actor at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Santa C…


An online Cosmopolitan poll asked men, "What's the sexy Halloween costume he wants to see you in?" 46%, sexy naughty, like nurse or French maid37%, sexy sweet, like Little Red Riding Hood or a cheerleader9%, sexy scary, like a vampire or devil8%, sexy skanky, like a biker babe or Pussycat Doll Women's Health asked, "What's your Halloween costume style?" 22% said sexy school girl17% said vampire/scary9% said princess52% said "none of the above"


(Self) Halloween may be all about sweets, but our tricks will help you enjoy the treats without gaining a pound:

Stock up on lollipops
Buy bags of yummy but diet friendly candy. You won't disappoint trick-or-treaters, and you'll save yourself calories with festive favorites such as lollipops and Blow Pops.

Rock a cute costume
"Wearing a body conscious outfit will remind you not to indulge," says Patrica Bannan, R.D., author of "Eat Right When Time is Tight." Not dressing up? Get a pre-party blowout. When you feel good about how you look, it can be easier to stick with healthier options.

Eat treat after 4pm
"The worst thing you can do is to have candy in the morning, because you'll crave it all day," says Heather Bauer, R.D. author of The Wall Street Diet (Hyperion). After a sweet spike, blood sugar plummets, triggering your body to seek out more sugar. Plus, if you wait, picked over goodies in the break room will look less tempting.

Health magazine talked to radio host Celeste Headlee, author of "We Need to Talk: How to Have Conversations That Matter." "Studies how that talking to strangers actually makes your more positive," said Headlee, who shares some survival tips:

Play reporter
Most people love talking about themselves, "It activates the same pleasure centers in the brain as sex and cocaine," says Headlee., so ask your conversational partner about, say, her jewelry or cool haircut. "That can be your whole side of the conversation," says Headlee.

Skip the Power Poses
Ignore all the advice about how to arrange your body language so you look like you're paying attention, says Headlee. Instead, "actually pay attention and let your body do whatever it does naturally."

Don't underestimate yourself
Introverted? Good news, says Headlee: "Introverts are just as good at small talk as anybody else." In fact, she says, small talk is great for introverts beca…


The Stalling No
Try this technique if you're the type who tends to get carried away by the enthusiasm of the person making the request. You say yes only to realize when you walk away that you really wish you hadn't agreed. Instead, play for time by saying, "Wow, that sounds fun or interesting. But I need to check my calendar or with my husband who may have made plans for us/think about that because I'm not sure I can manage it. Let me get back to you," advises communication expert Judith Selle McClure, Ph.D. Then, when you've had a day or so to think it over, get back in touch with the persona and use one of the methods listed below to say no.

The Partial No
This method is a good compromise if you don't feel right delivering a blanket "no" to someone. It allows you to help someone out, but on your own terms, says stress expert David Posen, M.D. Example: "Gee, I sure can't lick envelopes all day, but I can from 9 to 10."
