WATCH LIVE: Wedding guests arrive at Windsor

Global media mogul Oprah Winfrey and British actor Idris Elba are among the guests arriving at Windsor Castle for the royal wedding.

The guest list for Saturday’s royal wedding has remained a remarkably well-kept secret.

But as the minutes tick down toward the ceremony, rumors have begun turning into fact as some of the lucky 600 guests who will be inside the chapel begin to arrive in sunny Windsor.

Actor Idris Alba was spotted arriving at the castle Saturday morning. He is best known for playing Nelson Mandela in the 2013 film “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom,” DCI John Luther in the BBC series “Luther” and drug trafficker Stringer Bell in the HBO series “The Wire.”

Oprah Winfrey was also spotted at the castle. She is wearing a hat by Irish designer Philip Treacy and will be sitting in the Quire — the front part of the chapel — with members of the royal family and other close friends of the couple.

Other guests have been using social media to share pictures of their preparations and fashion choices.

Tennis superstar Serena Williams posted a selfie on Instagram Saturday morning, writing, “Follow my IG stories today to see me getting ready for my friends wedding.” What she will be wearing remains a mystery.

Spice Girl Emma Bunton also appeared to confirm her attendance, posting a picture of herself wearing a pink wedding hat and using the hashtag #harryandmeghan. “Who else is ready for today??” she wrote.

In February, Melanie Brown (known better as Mel B or Scary Spice) sparked a wave of speculation that the Spice Girls would be performing at the wedding, after an appearance on “The Real.”

When asked to confirm if she had received an invitation, she said, “Well, us five Spice Girls did,” adding, “why am I so honest?” and laughing.

Asked if the group would be performing at the wedding, she did not deny it. The last time the Spice Girls performed together was at the closing ceremony of The Olympic Games in London in 2012.

Indian actress and winner of Miss World 2000, Priyanka Chopra, posted a photo on Instagram shortly after midnight Saturday with the words “Pre Wedding SHEnanigans!”

Chopra is a friend of Markle and, though the pair haven’t known each other long, it was widely believed she would fly to the UK for the event.

On the day the couple announced their engagement, Chopra posted a picture of Harry and Meghan with a personal message: “Congratulations to my girl @meghanmarkle and Prince Harry!!

WATCH LIVE: Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg testifies on Capitol Hill

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has arrived on Capitol Hill. What happens next could be big.

Zuckerberg will spend two days answering lawmakers’ questions about the powerful social network he helped create more than a decade ago, and whether the company is doing enough to protect users’ privacy.

It’s the first time Zuckerberg will personally sit for questions from Congress, instead of sending a deputy.

His testimony marks a pivotal moment for Facebook and the tech industry. Here’s what you need to know.

When is Mark Zuckerberg testifying before Congress?

Zuckerberg is set to testify in Washington on Tuesday and Wednesday.

He’ll appear at a joint hearing conducted by the Senate Judiciary and Commerce committees on Tuesday, starting at 2:15 p.m. ET. The Facebook CEO will then testify in front of the House Energy and Commerce Committee on Wednesday, beginning at 10 a.m. ET.

The hearings were scheduled to address Facebook’s use and protection of user data in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica scandal.

What’s Zuckerberg going to say?

Zuckerberg will take the blame for Facebook’s recent problems, according to prepared remarks released Monday by the House Committee on Energy and Commerce.

He’s expected to concede that Facebook “didn’t do enough” to prevent a host of problems on its platform, such as fake news, foreign interference in elections, hate speech and data privacy.

“We didn’t take a broad enough view of our responsibility, and that was a big mistake,” Zuckerberg will say. “It was my mistake, and I’m sorry. I started Facebook, I run it, and I’m responsible for what happens here.”

Why is Zuckerberg testifying?

Since 2016, Facebook has faced an array of controversies related to its platform.

It started with concerns about fake news items that circulated during the US presidential election. Then came questions about Russian meddling, and reports that Russians targeted Facebook users with political ads.

But the biggest scandal has been over Cambridge Analytica, a data firm with ties to President Donald Trump’s campaign.

Last month, it was disclosed that the group obtained data on millions of Facebook users without their knowledge. Facebook believes about 87 million users were affected.

Since then, the company’s reputation and stock have taken a beating, as advocates and lawmakers call for greater oversight to protect user privacy.

What’s the latest on Facebook’s Cambridge Analytica scandal?

On Monday, the company began rolling out a “see how you’re affected” tool at the top of people’s News Feeds. It will let users know if they’re among the tens of millions who had their data improperly accessed by Cambridge Analytica.

The rollout is happening incrementally, so not everyone who was affected will know immediately.

Why is Zuckerberg’s testimony a big deal?

In the past, tech leaders have avoided personally showing up for Congressional hearings.

It’s also an opportunity for Zuckerberg to address his company’s current crisis of trust, which has shown no signs of abating in recent weeks. Some have even called for Zuckerberg to step down. The 33-year-old’s performance in front of Congress could have ramifications for his job security.

Guardian of Parkland shooter to speak for first time about Cruz, warnings to authorities

The legal guardian of Parkland school shooter Nikolas Cruz will speak for the first time since 17 people were killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Rocxanne Deschamps will hold a press conference in New York to discuss why Cruz and his brother, Zachary, moved in with her family.

According to her attorney, Gloria Allred, Deschamps will describe how she attempted to keep guns away from Cruz and how she had warned law enforcement about the boy.

Deschamps will allegedly discuss how she told authorities that Cruz may have a gun and should not be permitted to own one.

Deschamps took custody of the Cruz children when their mother died in November. Police were called to the home when Cruz and Deschamps’ son got into a fight, with Cruz threatening to get his gun and return.

Rock Deschamps, Rocxanne’s husband, called 911 on Nov. 29 after Cruz “punching walls and breaking items inside the home.” 

According to the offense report, Cruz told deputies that “he became upset because he misplaced a picture of his mother who recently passed away.”

A judge entered a plea of not guilty for Cruz last Wednesday when he was arraigned on 17 counts of premeditated murder in the first degree and 17 counts of attempted murder in the first degree.
