    They are the only royal couple that I actually like. In all their pictures it's clear that they are crazy about each other. Congrats to them.

    Harry pays the price for Wills' dad dance - as HIS ski trip is axed

    By Charlotte Griffiths, Diary Editor For The Mail On Sunday
    PUBLISHED: 00:08, 26 March 2017 | UPDATED: 02:37, 26 March 2017

    Prince Harry (pictured) has cancelled a ski trip after his brother was filmed dancing in a nightclub

    Shots of his elder brother William 'dad dancing' on his recent lads' skiing trip to Verbier may well have raised a smile on Prince Harry's lips.
    But now poor Harry is laughing on the other side of his face – after cancelling a trip he was planning to the lively Swiss resort in the aftermath of William's high jinx.
    On top of his very awkward dance moves, William, 34, was caught on camera chatting to a blonde at the Verbier nightclub – when he placed a hand on her waist – and at a boozy lunch attended by a 24-year-old former topless model from Australia.
    After the wave of negative publicity that followed, Harry, 32, has pulled out of a big party in the resort this weekend, and will be in London with girlfriend Meghan Markle instead.
    The bash at Le Rouge bar had been organised by Harry's close friend Jacobi Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe for his record company, Housekeeping.
    Harry will also miss the chance to catch up with best pal Tom 'Skippy' Inskip and his new wife Lara Hughes-Young.
    The couple, whose wedding Harry and Meghan attended in Jamaica three weeks ago, are skiing in nearby Zermatt and Harry could easily have nipped across to see them.
    Last night one of Harry's Verbier friends said: 'Everyone was expecting him, but he'd be mad to be seen here after the furore his brother created.'
    William is said to be incandescent after the pictures of him partying went public and has vowed never to go dancing in Verbier again.

    The friend added: 'The mood in Verbier is very pro-William. No one here thinks he did anything wrong. The worry is that the whole incident will affect Verbier's reputation as a haven for royals and high society.'
    Staying away from the whole scene may be a wise move for Harry, who has appeared in videos and photographs while partying, often with Skippy not far away. They were on the Las Vegas trip in 2012 that resulted in pictures appearing of Harry frolicking naked in his hotel room. And the pair have form in ski resorts as in the same year they were seen hurling snowballs at passers-by from a chalet balcony.

    Meghan Markle's estranged half-sister threatens to release embarrassing tell-all book about growing up with Prince Harry's girlfriend


    • Half-sister of Meghan Markle, Samantha Grant is planning to tell all book
    • Miss Grant, 52, is wheelchair bound suffering from multiple sclerosis
    • It is claimed the book will called The Diary of Princess Pushy's Sister
    • The estranged sister has been a vocal critic of her half-sister on Twitter before

    Meghan Markle's estranged half-sister is writing a tell all family book in which she will reveal what is was like growing up with Prince Harry's love-interest.
    Samantha Grant said it has the working title 'The Diary of Princess Pushy's Sister'.
    The book will look to capitalise on Miss Markle's rumoured forthcoming engagement to Prince Harry, who met the American actress in 2016 while promoting the Invictus Games.







    Meghan Markle's estranged half-sister Samantha Grant, 52, (pictured, left) is writing a tell all book revealing what it was like growing up in a bi-racial family alongside Prince Harry's love interest (pictured, right)



    Miss Grant claimed the book would be called: 'The Diary of Princess Pushy's Sister'

    Miss Grant, who suffers from multiple sclerosis, is wheelchair-bound and has pre
    viously been outspoken against her half-sister's relationship with the royal.
    Discussing her book, which will deal with growing up in a bi-racial family, Miss Grant took to Twitter to say: 'Maybe when she is more mature and she reads the book she'll understand some of it. She won't like some of it she might [sic].'
    Previously, divorcee Miss Markle, 35, was accused by her half-sister of failing to support her family.
    Miss Grant said the Queen's grandson would be 'appalled by what she's done'.

    She also claimed her sister was a ‘shallow social climber’ who would watch programmes showing the Royal Family as a child and had a ‘soft spot for gingers’.
    And the mother-of-three, 51, claimed Miss Markle always wanted to be a princess and said she was ‘narcissistic and selfish’.
    When Twitter users voiced their support for Miss Markle, Miss grant hit back saying: 'She is the one with the hardened heart. I've always been supportive of her but I won't enable the lies and hypocrisy.'

    In an extended Twitter outburst Miss Grant implied Miss Markle's altruistic motives were disingenuous

    Miss Grant claims that she was dumped by her half-sister in 2008, after she developed MS. Adding that she became a 'social climber'.
    However, Miss Grant has in turn come under fire from her own mother, Roslyn, 71.
    'Miss Grant has been dogging her for years.
    'Everything she has said about her is a lie.' Roslyn told The Sun.
    Miss Grant, a writer from Florida, said she had brought up the actress for 12 years when she lived in California and declared: 'The Royal Family would be appalled by what she's done to her own family.
    'The truth would kill her relationship with Prince Harry, he wouldn't want to date her any more because it puts her in a bad public light.

    The King of Sweden came to our campus today for a tour. It was cool to see the entourage and the Secret Service around. He was invited by one of our Nobel Prize winning scientists who is from Sweden. We have several on staff. He toured the facility and had a reception. I did a quick walk by to see him. Former Secretary of State James Baker was in for 2 days this week, but I missed seeing him.

    Queen Elizabeth's former chef, state dinners. delish. He sure knows how to make the perfect poached egg. Beware of fish heads and sausage making but it's real, identifiable food.




    When Claire Foy first appeared as a young Queen Elizabeth in the Netflix series The Crown last November, viewers were transfixed. Foy embodied a young Queen Elizabeth so well, and gave a glimpse inside incredibly personal aspects of Her Majesty’s life. The series premieres with the then-Princess Elizabeth’s wedding to the future Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, and traverses such sensitive ground as the death of her father, King George VI, and her relationships with her husband and her sister, Princess Margaret. Throughout it all, it was hard not to wonder, Has The Queen seen this?!
    The answer, it surprisingly turns out, is yes. A “senior royal source” has said that the queen watched all of season one. And better yet, the queen reportedly liked the show. So how exactly did this happen? Prince Edward, the queen’s youngest son, and his wife, Sophie, Countess of Wessex, love The Crown, and have long-since dined with the queen while casually watching television or a movie. Apparently, they finally convinced Her Majesty to give the show a try. What’s more, Princess Eugenie and Zara Tindell, both granddaughters of the queen, have been quoted as saying that they are huge fans of the show.

    London (CNN)

    Prince Philip, the 96-year-old husband of Britain's Queen Elizabeth II, was admitted to hospital Tuesday evening as a "precautionary measure," Buckingham Palace has told CNN.


    The Prince, also known as the Duke of Edinburgh, was being treated at London's King Edward VII Hospital for an infection arising from a pre-existing condition.

    "Prince Philip is in good spirits and is disappointed to be missing the State Opening of Parliament and Royal Ascot," Buckingham Palace said in a statement. The Queen, who will give her annual speech at the opening of Parliament today, will attend the Royal Ascot races later this afternoon.

    On Tuesday, before being admitted to hospital, the Prince donned a top hat for the first day of Royal Ascot in Berkshire, England.

    The appearance was part of a scaled back schedule for the Prince, who announced last month that he would step down from public life.


    In the hours before the announcement, wild speculation swirled in the British press about the Prince's health.

    "Prince Philip will attend previously scheduled engagements between now and August, both individually and accompanying The Queen," the statement about his retirement read. "Thereafter, The Duke will not be accepting new invitations for visits and engagements, although he may still choose to attend certain public events from time to time."
