Terror In London: Get The Latest On The Westminster Attack

UPDATE 7:12 P.M. EST: Unfortunately, police are now reporting a fifth person has died as a result of their wounds.

Authorities have also now officially released the name of the hero policeman who died protecting Parliament: Keith Palmer, a husband and father who'd been an officer for 15 years.

PM May thanked the "exceptional men and women" of the police force; she added:

"The location of this attack was no accident. The terrorist chose to strike at the heart of our capital city where people of all nationalities, religions and cultures come together to celebrate the values of liberty, democracy and freedom of speech."

The number of injured has also risen; police now say over 40 in all.


One year to the day after the deadly suicide bombings in Brussels, another act of terrorism has taken innocent lives.

Four are confirmed dead after a man drove a large vehicle into pedestrian traffic on Westminster Bridge in London. Two were killed by the vehicle; at least 20 others were injured, including three young students who were visiting from France.

After crashing into the railing, the driver, armed with a knife, abandoned the vehicle and tried to get into Westminster Abbey — where the U.K. Parliament convenes.

A police officer blocked his way and was stabbed; he later died of his wounds.

The assailant was reportedly then shot by police before he could make it into the building. Lawmakers inside Westminster were put on lockdown for over two hours as a precautionary measure.

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley of the National Counter-Intelligence Service addressed reporters with a full rundown of the tragic events:

How Kate Middleton's Wedding Dress Was Kept A Secret

kate-middleton-catherine-duchess-of-cambridge-wedding-dress-to-go-on-display__opt1.jpg

This is fascinating!

All the details on how Kate Middleton's wedding dress was kept a secret up until she arrived at Westminster Abbey are slowly beginning to surface.

Insiders say both the lace-makers at the Royal School of Needlework and Alexander McQueen seamstresses were told their work was for a movie, but wouldn't elaborate further.

The dress itself was constructed inside Buckingham Palace by Sarah Burton and a small group of helpers that were signed to secrecy. And if they were ever asked about the fashion house's involvement with the Royal Wedding they had to lie.

Ah, the classic "denial" trick. Works every time.

So much has happened for Sarah Burton in the past year, but creating Kate Middleton's wedding gown is the royal icing on the cake.

The Alexander McQueen creative director said after the big reveal at Westminster Abbey:

"It has been the experience of a lifetime to work with Catherine Middleton to create her wedding dress, and I have enjoyed every moment of it" she said today. It was such an incredible honour to be asked, and I am so proud of what we and the Alexander McQueen team have created."

Congrats, Sarah! You did an outstanding job!

Royal Wedding Music Choice Details Revealed!

royal wedding music choice details revealed

Earlier this week, we were really excited to hear reports that Jay-Z and Beyonce might perform at the royal wedding!

Now, more details have arisen regarding the royal wedding music choice, and we've learned that Prince William and Kate will have the London Chamber Orchestra perform on their special day.

Here's what London Chamber Orchestra music director/conductor Christopher Warren-Green had to say about it:

"The couple have very, very strong ideas of what they want, and after all, at the end of the day, it is their wedding. It's a young couple's wedding, and they should have what they want."

"They involved both sets of parents – the Middleton family, as well as the Prince of Wales. And both myself and the organist and choirmaster of Westminster Abbey, of course, are here to advise and to help."

Sounds very nice, but what about Beyonce and Jay? Is that still happening? We'd like some confirmation, please!

P.S. Be sure to watch Perez as he hosts with Nene Leakes "Will + Kate Forever," the only royal wedding special worth seeing, airing Friday, April 29th at 7pm/6c on Wedding Central and also at 9pm/8c on WE tv.
