A U.K. pub named for Prince George has big plans for the royal heir’s much-anticipated first birthday on Tuesday – and everyone’s invited.

The Prince George, which renamed itself after the royal tot last fall, will host a traditional British sing-along next week in honor of its namesake.

“We have a ‘Royal Knees-Up Karaoke Party’ planned with fancy dress and all British food. It’s exciting,” landlord Terry Rigg tells PEOPLE of his establishment in Watford, Hertfordshire, on the outskirts of London.

The pub debuted its new moniker last August, one month after the little prince was born, after Rigg appealed to locals to choose a new name for the struggling watering hole.

The majority voted to name it after the young prince, and Rigg, an enthusiastic royalist, felt it was only right to inform the royal family of his pub’s new name.

He was both shocked and delighted when Princess Kate and Prince William responded.

“We got a letter back from Will and Kate with a lovely picture of the three of them,” says Rigg, who added that the image is now proudly displayed on one of the pub’s walls.

The wording of the letter: “The Duke and Duchess were touched that you would change the name of your pub to the Prince George and have asked me to send you and your customers their warmest thanks and best wishes.”

Patrons at the birthday bash can get their picture taken next to the official letter – as they often do – and immerse themselves in all things royal.

All cocktails in the pub are named after royal family members, and the “Prince George” burger – which the little prince could surely sample if he stops in before he’s eligible for a drink – is a menu staple.

Rigg says his establishment will keep a close eye on the royal tot’s development – and plans to evolve right along with him.

“As he grows up, we will put more pictures up on the wall,” he says. “It’s fun and it’s become a local tourist attraction.”

Witness Says Erin Corwin Voluntarily Drove Off with Another Man Before Vanishing

As the search for a missing Marine wife nears the three-week mark, a witness now says he watched the pregnant Erin Corwin rendezvous and depart with another man from the site where her abandoned vehicle later turned up.

Michael Beasley tells San Diego, California, TV station CBS 8 that on the morning of Saturday, June 28, after Corwin left her at home in Twentynine Palms, reportedly for a solo day trip to Joshua Tree National Park, he saw her meet a man, exit and lock her blue Toyota, and then climb into the man’s red sedan.

“They were just sitting and chatting,” said Beasley. “If she wanted to get out of the car and say, ‘I don’t want to be in this car,’ she could have.”

The pair then drove off together in the man’s vehicle, he said.

“When I came back a half-hour later, just the [blue] car was sitting there,” said Beasley. “Next thing, I hear the weekend goes by and Monday morning the sheriffs are there looking for this girl because she ain’t home yet.”

Meanwhile, warrants made public this week reveal investigators sought permission to search two apartments on the Marine base that is home to Corwin, whose 20th birthday was Tuesday, and her husband, Marine Cpl. Jon Corwin.

The warrants also mention a 2013 blue Toyota sedan with California license plates, and a dark-colored Jeep Cherokee with Alaska license plates.

In each case, the otherwise identical documents indicate authorities are looking for items such as DNA and hair samples, latent prints, anything “soiled with bodily fluids,” and electronic devices, including computers.

Investigation Underway

While acknowledging “it’s an active investigation that, at some point, could turn into a criminal investigation,” Cindy Bachman, a spokeswoman for the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department, tells PEOPLE: “We haven’t located any solid evidence that has established this as a criminal investigation. We haven’t identified anyone as a suspect or a person of interest.”

“At this time,” she adds, “it’s a missing-person investigation and a search for a missing person.”

“We need to let the investigators continue to do what they’re doing,” she says.

Corwin’s hopeful family has established a Facebook page directing anyone with information to call 760-366-4175.

Adam Levine’s Wedding Will Be a Maroon 5 Affair

Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo‘s upcoming wedding will be a group affair: His Maroon 5 bandmates will have key roles in the nuptials.

Levine’s best man will be longtime pal and keyboard player Jesse Carmichael, according to guitarist James Valentine, who spilled the details in an interview with Australian radio station 2DayFM, ABC News reported.

Carmichael recently returned to the band after a hiatus, and his ties to Levine, 35, run deep, dating back to when they first became friends as kids.

“Those guys go back,” Valentine said. “What’s interesting about the band is, I’ve been with the band for 15 years but I’m still one of the ‘new’ members!”

Still, Valentine will have an important role in the festivities: He’s set to play some solo acoustic guitar (a “nice little medley” of Beatles tunes, he shared) as guests enter the ceremony.

So is the sexy groom-to-be, who got engaged in July 2013, feeling the nerves just yet?

“I think he’s really excited,” Valentine told ABC News Radio. “I expected him to be more nervous. They’re very amped up. They’re very happy. It’s going to be really fun.”

And it seems as if the once-wild rock star has found his match in Prinsloo.

“They’re so much fun to be around together,” Valentine adds. “I’m very happy for them.”

The band’s next album, V, is set to be released in September.

Miss Idaho Sierra Sanderson Wears Insulin Pump on Stage

Miss Idaho Sierra Sandison isn’t afraid to show you her pump.

On Monday, the 20-year-old posted a picture of herself on the pageant stage with her insulin pump clipped to her bikini bottom. The photo went viral, inspiring other diabetes patients to share their own pictures of their insulin pumps using the hashtag #showmeyourpump.

“There it is,” Sandison wrote on Instagram of the pic taken by photographer Susan Hessing. “I would never have dreamt of posting a swimsuit picture on social media, but diabetics from all over the country have been asking to see me and my insulin pump on the #MissIdaho2014 stage.”

She added: “Honestly, it is terrifying walking out on stage in a swimsuit, let alone attached to a medical device … Diabetes turned my life upside down when I was first diagnosed. Don’t let your challenge hold you back or slow you down. Use it to, not only empower yourself and grow as an individual, but to serve and influence other people as well.”

Sandison, who was crowned Miss Idaho on July 12, initially struggled with her diagnosis of Type I diabetes. “For a while, I pretended that I didn’t have diabetes, hoping it would go away. That led to crazy blood sugars, of course, and a very sick, grumpy, and discouraged Sierra,” she wrote on her blog.

But then she heard about Miss America 1999, Nicole Johnson, who wore a pump while competing, and her perspective changed. “The media often tells us this lie: if your appearance deviates in any way from cover girls, movie stars, super models, etc., it is a flaw and something is wrong with you,” Sandison added. “Well, guess what? Miss America 1999 has an insulin pump, and it doesn’t make her any less beautiful … So, a year after I was diagnosed, I got a pump. It helped me get even better control of my diabetes, and made my life SO much easier.”

Sandison looks forward to using her influence as Miss Idaho to educate the public about diabetes. “I have had a million new opportunities to spread the word about diabetes and overcoming obstacles!” she wrote. “I am overwhelmed with hearing how many lives have been touched by me simply wearing my pump on stage. It means so much to me, and I hope I can touch many more during my year as Miss Idaho.”
