    Meghan Markle received stern words from the Queen following a row over egg, a royal author has claimed. The Duchess of Sussex, 37, travelled to Windsor Castle ahead of her wedding to Prince Harry, 34, last May to test some of the food that was going to be served at the reception. Author Katie Nicholl told how the former actress had insisted on there being a 'macrobiotic alternative' for some of the Hollywood star guests who follow the diet which derives from Zen Buddhism. She told Yahoo's Royal Box: '[Meghan] got very upset when she felt that she could taste...

    Queen has really been keeping in the spotlight over the past year. The band's Bohemian Rhapsody film is currently the highest-grossing music biopic of all time, the film is up for five Oscars at the coming Academy Awards, and the band is back out on the road touring in support of the film.So it should come as no surprise that Queen + Adam Lambert has been announced as a musical act for the 91st Academy Awards coming up this Sunday, February 24.Bohemian Rhapsody is up for the Oscar for Best Picture, as well as Rami Malek for Best Actor...

    Will and Kate have become regulars on the BAFTAs red carpet in recent years. This year's show marks the third consecutive year the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have attended the high-profile entertainment industry event. And Kate has always looked stunning on the BAFTA red carpet-not that anyone would ever expect anything else from the famously stylish royal.

    National Review ^ | 10/31/2018 | Kyle Smith
    Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Also: Will you do the fandango? Can anybody find me someone to love? And: Who wants to live forever? Running through these pertinent questions with Professor Freddie Mercury at Queen College makes for a largely joyous two hours at Bohemian Rhapsody, a movie that lacks much in the way of imaginative filmmaking but has a subject I find irresistible. A movie that consisted of nothing but making-of stories about the dozen or so best Queen songs, and playing them over a theater sound system, would best nearly everything actually offered at...

    Clearly it’s been no bed of roses. No pleasure cruise. However, after eight years of delays, several different directors, strops, rows and – uh oh! – artistic differences, Bohemian Rhapsody finally staggered out of the shadows and on to the silver screen last night. And was this biopic of rock band Queen worth the wait? Not quite. Not really. Not unless you prefer a watered-down, milky tea version of the great Freddie Mercury; here portrayed as a mild-mannered occasional bisexual who was happiest with his cats and his soft furnishings. It is no secret that in real life, Mercury was...

    Music legend Aretha Franklin died without a will. Franklin, who suffered from pancreatic cancer and was in grave health in the days leading up to her death last week, had no financial preparations in place at the time of her death, the website reports. The gossip outlet notes that the “Respect” singer had a son, Clarence, who has special needs and will require financial support for the rest of his life. Following the news of her death, the Franklin family said: “In one of the darkest moments of our lives, we are not able to find the appropriate words to...

    FULL TITLE: Don't mess with the Queen's guard! The moment a guardsman violently shoves a female tourist out of his way after she stepped over a rope into his path outside Windsor Castle This is the moment a shocked tourist was pushed out of the way by a member of the Queen's Guard at Windsor Castle. The women, who had crossed a rope barrier, screamed in shock as she was shoved from behind by the soldier, who was wearing his ceremonial bearskin hat. The tourist was not injured and managed to remain on her feet despite the incident which took...

    I get emails from Trump haters constantly. They tell me that our President is just the flip side of the same globalist coin we would have gotten with Hillary Clinton. But I don't buy it. And I wonder, is it not even acceptable to highlight and report about the good things President Trump has done? We have been lied to and betrayed for so long that I wonder, are many Americans suffering from some hybrid version of Stockholm syndrome? I take my case to the President himself.

    Funny how the British and liberals in general are concerned about Trump's "breach of protocol" and show little or no respect to the President of the United States nor to his aides. The protests in restaurants and at the homes of aides needs to be brought to an abrupt halt. The whole world knows that the disrespectful treatment of the President and his aides has been wrong. Strzok and his ilk know they're wrong and must be punished for direct attempts to overthrow rightful election results and must be put in prison. ALL of this poor behavior needs to be...

    On Friday Trump and first lady Melania will have tea with the Queen in one of her drawing rooms before leaving for Scotland. US President Trump described Queen Elizabeth II as a "tremendous woman" in an interview with The Sun newspaper, hours before he and first lady Melania Trump are due to meet the monarch for tea on Friday. "She is a tremendous woman," Trump told the newspaper during his UK working visit. "I really look forward to meeting her. I think she represents her country so well." The US President also praised the Queen's ability to avoid controversy during...

    White Semidouble IN THE FOOTSTEPS of Margaret of Scotland and of Clotilde of France, a third Queen comes to shed her brightness on the sacred cycle. Born at the southern extremity of Christendom, where it borders of Musselman lands, she was destined by the Holy Ghost to seal with peace the victories of Christ, and prepare the way for fresh conquests. The blessed name of Elizabeth, which for half a century had been rejoicing the world with its sweet perfume, was given to her, foretelling that this newborn child, as though attracted by the roses which fell from the...
  • The passing of the Queen will be one the most disruptive events in Britain since WWII

    Business Insider ^ | June 2018 | Rob Price
    Since ascending to the throne in 1952, the monarch has seen 13 prime ministers serve Britain and lived through another 13 US presidents. She's now 92. At some point — not for many years yet, we hope — Queen Elizabeth II's reign will come to an end. But what happens then? For at least 12 days — between her passing, the funeral and beyond — Britain will grind to a halt. The stock markets and banks are likely to close. But to focus on the financial disruption doesn't begin to describe the sheer magnitude of the queen's death. It will...

    It is inevitable that I should seem a rather remote figure to many of you. A successor to the Kings and Queens of history; someone whose face may be familiar in newspapers and films but who never really touches your personal lives. But now at least for a few minutes I welcome you to the peace of my own home. That it is possible for some of you to see me today is just another example of the speed at which things are changing all around us. Because of these changes I am not surprised that many people feel lost...

    All or nothing at all -- three-quarters of a country never appealed to him, nor did the idea of a political entity called Northern Ireland that was created in 1920, comprising the six northeastern counties of Ireland in the province of Ulster. Gerry Adams is still adamant about the need for a united Ireland. As a political entity, the Republic of Ireland, first called the Irish Free State, was created in 1922. On November 18, 2017 the 69-year-old Adams, president since 1983 of Sinn Fein, the left-wing political party, announced that it was time for a change and that he...

    Donald Trump will meet the Queen when he visits Britain next month, the US ambassador to the UK has told Sky News. The president is due in Britain for a working visit on Friday 13 July - his first to the country since being elected in 2016. It is not a state visit with all the pomp and ceremony that comes with that, so the pair would not necessarily need to meet. But ambassador Robert Wood Johnson said that while plans have not yet been finalised, they will involve the president meeting Her Majesty. "Meeting Her Majesty is the most...
