Kate Middleton Credits “Beginner’s Luck” For Her Bagel-Making Skills



After starting their day with a social media post wishing Prince Harry a happy birthday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge headed to London on Tuesday for the first time since coronavirus lockdowns began, stopping to make bagels amid a busy day of engagements. Kate and William carried out three engagements—to a job center, a mosque, and finally the bagel shop, where Kate in particular couldn’t wait to get cooking.

The couple received a warm welcome at the famous Beigel Bake Brick Lane Bakery in East London, which bakes on average 3000 bagels a day and delivered supplies to vulnerable members of the community during the lockdown.

“We are so excited to come to your famous shop,” William told Amnon Cohen, 70, one of the co-founders, who started it with his late brother, Asher Cohen.

The Duchess, a keen cook, has revealed she spent much of the lockdown baking with their three children Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis. Kate, wearing a mask, rolled up her sleeves and confidently kneaded seven-pound piles of dough with ease, making balls that would become 30 bagels. When congratulated on her technique the Duchess said with a laugh, “Just wait until you see the aftermath! I had beginner’s luck, they are getting worse!”

William has joked that the family kitchen at their country home Anmer Hall in Norfolk was an “explosion of flour and chocolate” as they whiled away the lockdown baking cakes and biscuits. William has a sweet tooth and one of his favorite treats is chocolate biscuit cake, which was served on the couple’s wedding day and is a recipe Kate knows by heart.

Tuesday’s events were the couple’s first official joint outing since July, and now that they have returned to Kensington Palace, their London base, they are expected to carry out a busy schedule of events this autumn. While the royals won’t be able to carry out public walkabouts because of continued social distancing guidelines, they are still able to carry out smaller engagements. And with George and Charlotte back at school (they returned to Thomas’s Battersea last week), Kate and William are said to be keen to get back to work.

Wearing a £550 red floral gown by one of her favourite designers, Beulah London, Kate opted for her trademark nude heels. She and William are keen to “shine a light on individuals and businesses who have gone above and beyond to help others during this extraordinary time,” according to a spokesperson at the palace.


HBO slates “Fandango at the Wall” doc from EPs Quincy Jones, Carlos Santana




HBO Latino plans to premiere the feature music doc Fandango at the Wall – directed by Varda Bar-Kar and executive produced by Quincy Jones, Andrew Young and Carlos Santana – this month.

The film follows musician Arturo O’Farrill and producer Kabir Sehgal as they journey to Veracruz, Mexico to recruit a group of master musicians to record a live album at the U.S.-Mexico border wall. It centers around the annual Fandango Fronterizo, a festival that takes place on both sides of the Tijuana-San Diego border. With musicians from two countries joining together, it’s a celebration of friendship and unity.

Sehgal also serves as executive producer and writer; Marietta Ulacia is co-producer.

Fandango at the Wall will have its world festival premiere at the Atlanta Film Festival this month. NewFilmmakers Los Angeles (NFMLA) and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) will also feature it on September 26, as part of the virtual NFMLA Film Festival, InFocus: Latinx & Hispanic Cinema. It will also appear at virtual film festivals across the country.

The film premieres Sept. 25 on HBO Latino, and will be available to stream on HBO Max in the U.S.

Get WIRED: Director Nia DaCosta on Horror and Black Trauma




The real-life horrors faced by humans today, particularly those in marginalized communities, are numerous and in many ways more terrifying than anything that could be imagined in cinema. But at the same time, horror films are a reflection of our physical and psychological traumas, and they force those who live without fear to confront the realities that others face.

That’s how director and screenwriter Nia DaCosta is thinking about horror films these days— she’s exploring how to tell stories in a way that they stay with you even after you leave the proverbial theater. “Horror is really in your psyche, it gets deeper into your brain. I think the horror of a ghost or a serial killer can be as tangible for people who don’t understand Black trauma, Black horror, Black pain—it can be as tangible for them.” DaCosta said. “And hopefully when they leave the theater, it’s sitting with them.”

DaCosta, who wrote and directed the 2018 crime thriller Little Woods and more recently directed a revival of the 1990s horror classic Candyman, joined us last week for our virtual WIRED 25 event. WIRED 25 is our annual list of artists, business leaders, scientists, and visionaries who we believe are trying to make the world a better place. DaCosta is one such artist, keeping an eye towards the future of film and coming up with new ways to surprise and thrill audiences—even as her industry has been thrown into upheaval by the pandemic. (The release of DaCosta’s Candyman has been delayed twice this year and is now scheduled for next year.)

So for this week’s episode of the Get WIRED podcast, we’re sharing the conversation that took place between WIRED senior writer Jason Parham and filmmaker Nia DaCosta. To learn more about the virtual WIRED 25 event and sign up for free (free!) upcoming sessions, go to

Every XP Coin Location for Week 3 (Season 4)




During Week 4 of Fortnite Season 4, players can collect XP Coins for extra XP toward their Battle Pass. There are 10 XP Coins around the map.

Each week during Fortnite Season 4, players can expect to earn XP in a variety of ways, from completing Weekly Challenges to filling out punch cards, to simply playing the game as normal. However, to get a little extra XP, players may want to seek out and collect the XP Coins added each week. Grabbing this XP will help players climb the Battle Pass Tiers more quickly and earn all the Marvel-themed rewards for doing so. In Week 4, players can expect to find ten XP Coins in various colors, including another Gold XP Coin.

This week, there are 2 Purple XP Coins worth 10,300 XP each, three Blue XP Coins, worth 6,500 XP each, and four Green XP Coins, worth 5,000 XP each. This is also the second week in a row during which players can find a Gold XP Coin, worth 15,000 XP. As usual, these are scattered around the map, with the player needing to break some items to get to a few of them. Here’s the location of every XP Coin in Fortnite Season 4 Week 4.

Every XP Coin Location in Fortnite Season 4 Week 4

Map locations of all Fortnite Season 4 Week 4 XP Coins

from The Brite Future

The map shows the numbered location of all 10 Week 4 XP Coins. Many of these are located near the map locations for other Week 4 Weekly Challenges, meaning players can knock out a few tasks in a single match.

Purple Coins

  • Hovering over a rock northwest of Sweaty Sands.
  • Hovering over a lamp on an island south of Slurpy Swamp.

Blue Coins

  • Inside Lockie’s Lighthouse northeast of Coral Castle, only accessible by breaking the shelf holding the potted plants
  • In a room near the top of The Authority, only accessible by breaking the metal rack.
  • Southwest of Dirty Docks and northwest of Retail Row, inside the building at Lake Canoe, only accessible by breaking the canoes.

Fortnite Season 2 XP Coins

Green Coins

  • At the western part of Coral Castle, inside a tower.
  • On the small island northeast of Steamy Stacks, behind two large rocks.
  • On the peak of the mountain east of Catty Corner.
  • By a tree on a cliff near the coastline southwest of Misty Meadows.

Gold Coin

  • In the elevator shaft on the top floor of the building at the south end of Stark Industries, accessible only by breaking down the metal door.

As usual, to avoid losing any Purple XP Coin fragments, players should be sure to build around the larger Coin to keep the fragments concentrated to one place.

For the past few weeks, some players have been experiencing a bug where the punch cards will refuse to populate if the player collects more than one of each color Coin in a match. If players notice this bug persist, the easiest workaround is to only collect one of each color XP Coin in a single match.
