Top 10 celebrity moments that made headlines this summer

Canadians haven’t had much of a summer as far as the weather is concerned.

When it comes to celebrity news, however, the season’s been a quite the scorcher!

There were births, anniversaries, pregnancies and engagements. Secret weddings (Olivia Palermo and Cheryl Cole) abounded – along with some not-so-secret nuptials – and the stars were keen to share it all with fans on social media.

Prince George turned one year old on July 22, with Hello! releasing a special commemorative issue to celebrate. Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West finally tied the knot in a lavish Italian ceremony, which was dubbed “the wedding of the year” by stargazers, and conspicuously absent guests Jay Z and Beyoncé took one highly debated elevator ride with their sister, Solange.

Royal watchers also witnessed history in the making, as King Felipe IV and Queen Letizia became the new ruling monarchs of Spain following Juan Carlos’ abdication.

Superstar Celine Dion shocked fans recently with the announcement that she'd be cancelling her Asian tour and taking an indefinite leave from her Las Vegas residency to tend to her husband of 20 years, René Angélil.

With autumn and TIFF! – already just around the corner, Hello! looks back at the hottest celebrity news stories that made headlines this summer.
