There may, too, have been other sensible reasons for caution. Questions had been raised over the timing of the start of their relationship - Edo had been living with his fiancée, Chinese-American architect Dara Huang, the mother of his son. But any suggestion that Beatrice had caused the split were denied.
The virtual get together came about in celebration of Maryland couple Susan and John's Zoom wedding, hosted by the newly ordained Krasinski. John proposed to Susan by recreating Jim's bent knee to Pam outside a petrol station in The Office.
A few of those highlights include: Oprah Winfrey giving advice to college graduates, astronauts dropping in from the International Space Station and the original cast of Hamilton singing Alexander Hamilton to a 9-year-old girl who missed out on the show.
7. He made bald beautiful again Stewart began losing his hair at 19, and reportedly tried hats, combovers and toupees to hide his baldness. Hollywood's strict beauty standards don't often include hair loss, so it's no surprise that Stewart worried he wouldn't be cast as Picard unless he wore a wig over his bald pate. But Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry himself told the actor to ditch the wig, and in 1992, a TV Guide poll named Stewart the sexiest man on television.
To take the homage to the next level, Krasinski brought Jenna Fischer in as maid of honor (10:10), along with "some of my family." After he married the couple, the cast of the Office then showed up to dance to Forever by Chris Brown.
Her disease is, however, treatable. Treatments have involved an eight-hour surgery to remove part of her colon and liver, plus her appendix, gallbladder, uterus, ovaries and even more of her insides. She has gone through dozens of rounds of grueling chemotherapy and endured lengthy hospitalizations. She shares all aspects of the experience on her blog, titled My Colon Cancer: Semicolon Not Full Stop. "When life gives you cancer, make a punctuation pun," she jokes.
In the beginning, this was perhaps for good reason. Edo and Beatrice's families have been close for decades, moving in similar circles. Indeed, Beatrice has spoken of their ‘similar interests and values'.
Some Good News, the feel-good news show hosted for the past eight weeks by John Krasinski, has sadly come an end -- at least for its initial run of eight episodes. In the final instalment for now, Krasinski turned the lens on the positive community built up around the show, as well as dropping a few behind-the-scenes bloopers, including from last week's The Office Zoom wedding.
"I've never been a very outgoing or chatty person, but with Ness it's always been easy for me to share myself," Davis says. "When I talk to her, she listens. Even more importantly than that, she gets me in a way that no one else ever has. People sometimes talk about finding their person. Jenessa has been mine since the moment I met her."
From the start, there was speculation the two would opt invitations for weddings a low-key wedding ‘in the back garden', in part to quell the disquiet over the taxpayer-footed bill for the security surrounding Eugenie's lavish nuptials and growing concern over Andrew's relationship with the late Jeffrey Epstein.
After all, Princess Eugenie's 2018 wedding to Jack Brooksbank was a dazzling blend of pomp, pageantry and showbiz with Robbie Williams chewing gum behind the Queen while actress Demi Moore and model Kate Moss were among those filling the pews.
In spite of all this, she keeps calm and carries on - a quality admired by the Queen who could not have given her granddaughter a greater seal of approval than loaning her a dress and a treasured tiara.
Before the wedding festivities, Krasinski's wife Emily Blunt had a go at opening the show doing her best Krasinski impression, American accent and all, but lasted less than a minute before Krasinski kicked her out of his presenter's seat.
Using Zoom can be hazardous at the best of times, but Krasinski not only married a couple on its virtual podium, he brought together the entire cast of The Office to reenact the wedding dance to Forever by Chris Brown that made Jim and Pam's wedding truly special on the show.
3. He had the classiest ice-bucket challenge ever Remember in 2014, when people were dumping buckets of ice water on their heads to promote donations to ALS charities? Stewart, then 74, wisely chose to skip the bucket-dumping, instead silently writing out a check (presumably his ALS donation). Only then did he pull an ice bucket into view -- not to dump it, but to fix himself a drink and raise a toast. Cheers, sir.
6. He honors his teachers In 2010, Stewart was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace. And amid this lifetime honor, he didn't forget to credit Cecil Dormand, the English teacher who first pushed him toward acting, saying he owed "literally everything" to the man. "Although many people in my life have had great influence on me, without this man none of it would have happened," the BBC quoted Stewart as saying. It's something Picard would have done.
