    Prince Albert's son Alexandre is quite handsome. His daughter Jasmin is pretty. I don't know about her boyfriend's shoes with that suit though...they were at Louis' wedding last month.

    Nope! She's joining the cast of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel this season.

    Feeding her Maj:



    A French dinner for the Queen - in the kitchens of the Elysee Palace

    On the occasion of D-Day commemoration ceremonies, the Queen of England is paying an official state visit in France and will be attending a banquet as the guest of honor at the official residence of the President of the Republic of France, the Elysée Palace. This documentary film will describe the event from the kitchens of power, the true vitrine of French gastronomy which has been on Unesco's Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity since 2010. We will follow the work of the teams of the famous chef Guillaume Gomez, from the conception of the menus to the selection of products with the best French producers as well as the installation of the reception hall. A true challenge for a prestigious guest.

    Jets flew empty for 500 miles to pick up Royals (Will & Kate) for Aberdeen visit

    Two empty jets were flown on behalf of Flybe some 500 miles as part of taking the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their children to Aberdeen on Thursday, The Scotsman has learned.

    The revelation comes days after William and Kate were praised for using an economy flight from Norwich when Prince Harry and 
Meghan have been criticised for a series of private jet trips.

    It is understood the empty flights made by the two 49-seat aircraft cost around four tonnes of carbon.

    An aviation source with knowledge of what happened said the plane which normally flies the route had been replaced by a Flybe-branded aircraft in an attempt to maximise press coverage for the company.

    Eastern Airways, which operates the route for Flybe, confirmed to The Scotsman it swapped a Loganair plane normally used for the flight for another of the same type of jet with Flybe markings. Eastern said this was so it would be “wholly compliant and in control of the operation”.

    The substitution involved an empty Embraer 45 jet being flown some 100 miles from Humberside airport to Norwich to pick up the Royal party and regular passengers.

    Loganair’s own Embraer plane then also flew empty some 400 miles from Norwich to Aberdeen so it could operate the next flight back to Norwich.

    The Glasgow airline has been subcontracted by Eastern since February for weekday flights on the route.

    The source said: “An Eastern Airways jet was flown empty from Humberside to Norwich and then flew the scheduled flight to Aberdeen with the Royals on board.

    “The Loganair aircraft which normally flies this route for Flybe and Eastern flew from Aberdeen to Norwich as usual but then flew empty from Norwich to Aberdeen.

    “I guess it was to ensure if they had any Press coverage of the Royal travel, an aircraft with a Flybe logo flew them.

    “Heck of a carbon footprint to achieve it – not exactly environmentally conscious.”

    Royal author Phil Dampier had said: “The contrast between William, Kate and family travelling on a budget flight to Scotland and Harry and Meghan using private jets couldn’t be starker.

    “At the very least they know they would have been criticised if they had taken a private jet.”

    Flybe said the decision to change the aircraft had been Eastern’s. It declined to comment on the claim that the switch was to gain publicity.

    Its spokeswoman said: “We were delighted to welcome the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their family on board one of our flights again, this time operated by our franchise partner, Eastern Airways.

    “Please note that operational decisions generally are managed exclusively by Eastern on any route they operate under the franchise agreement, hence we are not in the position to comment.”

    Eastern Airways said it had chosen to switch the aircraft after being told the Royal party had booked onto the flight.

    General manager (commercial and operations) Roger Hage said: “Following a call and details provided late evening on Wednesday as to members of the Royal Family having been booked onto the service, and that armed Royal Protection Officers would accompany the family on-board, we elected, given this service is operated for Flybe by Eastern, to provide our own aircraft and crew, given the approvals and clearance required 
to accommodate such.

    “This then assured ourselves on our own Air Operators Certificate that we would be wholly compliant and in control of the operation in accordance with associated regulation.

    “Hence we positioned an aircraft on a short 25-minute leg to facilitate the above.”

    An Eastern Airways spokesperson added: “Eastern Airways can confirm any decision as to which aircraft operated the Norwich-Aberdeen service on Thursday morning was entirely that of Eastern Airways and not that of Flybe and apologies to Flybe for any resulting confusion. Decisions taken were to ensure operational control and responsibility remained that directly of Eastern Airways.”

    A Loganair spokesman said: “Our aircraft have operated the [Norwich-Aberdeen] route on weekdays since we took on this commitment in February.

    ^ Already posted and it still doesn't beat 4 trips in August in 11 days on private jets (if we're counting.)

    That headline alone made me feel dizzy. I want to go along.




    Does anyone else see King George but me? I checked wiki, it doesn't look like these families cross bred (sorry, couldn't think of another way to say it).

    Which George? We’ve had six or seven....

    George VI was the Queens’s father so one would expect to see some resemblance?

    Henri Lux is related to Queen Alexandra through his maternal great grandmother, princess Ingeborg of Sweden. Alexandra was Ingeborg's aunt and grandmother to George VI. Might be related some other was as well

    Prince Nikolai is all grown up in new birthday portraits released by Danish palace






    The Danish royal family has released three new portraits of Prince Nikolai to celebrate his birthday and, my, he has grown.

    The royal, who turned 20 on August 28, is the eldest son of Prince Joachim and his first wife Alexandra, Countess of Frederiksborg.

    He's is seventh in-line to the Danish throne and is Princess Mary's nephew.

    Three new photos of Prince Nikolai were shared to the Danish royal family's official Instagram page in honour of the occasion.

    © Facebook/Danish Royal Household Prince Nikolai of Denmark has turned 20.Recently, Danish media reported the Prince was due to resume his studies at the Copenhagen Business School with a bachelor's degree in HA General Business Economics. His mother, Alexandra, also received a business education.

    It's a change in direction for Nikolai who last October dropped out of military training, just two months into the course. Nikolai had begun the two-year course at the Royal Danish Army's Sergeant School but felt a career in the military was not for him.

    Perhaps modelling is more Nikolai's style.

    © Facebook/Danish Royal Household Prince Nikolai with his father, Prince Joachim and his step-mother, Princess Marie.The royal has been a regular on the catwalk for the past few years. In 2018, he signed with modelling agency Scoop Models in Denmark and has walked the catwalk for Burberry and Dior.

    At the Burberry AW18 fashion show, fashion legends Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell watched Prince Nikolai's debut from the front row.

    https://www.instagram.com/p/BfrFd1PlwJw/The brand said it was "delighted to have Prince Nikolai of Denmark walking in today's runway show, which marks a special moment in time for the brand".

    When the palace released Nikolai's birthday portraits in 2018, fans were quick to comment on the prince's good looks, calling him "handsome", "dapper" and even "sexy".

    He reminds me of Liz Hurley's son a little bit.

    Rumor has it that an engagement between Beatrice and Edoardo might be announced soon. He is apparently living with her at St. James Palace.
