The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge set off on their day sans the little prince, much to our disappointment. However, Kate decided to wear a beautiful pale blue Alexander McQueen coat and style her hair in a lovely ponytail, so all is forgiven.

2. Senate Republicans blocked the Paycheck Fairness Act because why not. Senate Republicans argued that pay discrimination is already illegal, so why sign a bill that would close major loopholes in a law that was created more than 50 years ago and address the fact that women still make only 77 cents to every dollar earned by a man?! President Obama blasted Congress in a speech following the vote, saying, "This has become the least productive Congress in modern history, recent memory. And that's by objective measures — just basic activity."

3. Katherine Heigl is suing a pharmacy. Duane Reade tweeted an image of Heigl shopping at the pharmacy and the actress is not enthused to say the least. She's suing Duane Reade for $6 million because that seems like a totally reasonable number. According to the law suit obtained by TMZ, Heigl said she would donate the money to the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation that focuses on animal welfare.

4. A woman is not replacing David Letterman. Stephen Colbert is the new host of "Late Night" and while we're thrilled, here's to hoping that Comedy Central replaces Colbert with a woman. The Samantha Bee Report has a great ring to it!

The only issue is that John Hancock signed the Declaration of Independence, not the Constitution, so you know, the Internet exploded.
