    An unidentified object was picked up on camera during this weekend's celebrations of the platinum jubilee. As the UK united in celebration of Queen Elizabeth II's 70 years on the throne, eagle-eyed viewers of the jubilee celebrations spotted something unusual in the TV coverage of the event. The anomalous sighting occurred following a flypast of several historic aircraft, just as the Red Arrows came into view leaving a trail of red, white and blue smoke behind them. Televised footage shows a white object, which first appears to the right of the jets, moving at considerable speed across the smoke towards...
  • Recalling a secret 1970 garden party with the Queen and Royal Family in a Manitoba farmyard

    At first glance, it would have looked like any other 1970s-era backyard gathering — people sitting back on webbed lawn chairs, sipping drinks, enjoying a slice of coffee cake and taking in the heat of Manitoba in July. But that would be a royal oversight. Sitting in those thrones of summer 52 years ago, on the lawn of a Prairie potato farmer, was England's most prestigious family. And as Queen Elizabeth celebrates her Platinum Jubilee this year, at age 96, memories and photos of that rare visit are being resurfaced by a retired Manitoba teacher whose family played host. "It...

    The Queen has seen politicians come and go during her 70 years on the throne, however she has always made time to wine and dine US Presidents. During her reign there have been 14 US Presidents and the Queen has met all of them, bar one. Lyndon B. Johnson, who took over from John F. Kennedy after he was assassinated in 1963, is the only US head of state never to meet Her Majesty. And, despite being Princess Elizabeth in 1951 she still met the US President (Harry S. Truman) at the time while she was on a tour of...

    Make room, Elijah, Jeremiah, and Isaiah. There's a new prophet in town, and his name is Chuck! On the occasion of Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee celebrations, today's Morning Joe brought in Suzannah Lipscomb, billed as an NBC News "royal contributor." Lipscomb enthused over Prince Charles for his trendy views on climate: "His interests in things like sustainable agriculture, and climate change, and deforestation, you know, they’re not seen as eccentricities anymore. They're seen as current concerns. He is a kind of prophet in that way." Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    "I applaud her for that, and that's a fantastic achievement," the Sex Pistols frontman added of the upcoming Platinum JubileeJohn Lydon has said in a new interview that, ahead of the Platinum Jubilee, he is “actually really, really proud of the Queen for surviving and doing so well”. The Sex Pistols frontman was speaking ahead of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, which will be celebrated in the UK from June 2-5 to mark Queen Elizabeth II’s 70 years on the throne.

    The Queen has decided to make Windsor Castle her permanent home and main residence, it was reported last night. It is understood the 95-year-old monarch will never fully return to Buckingham Palace, where she is not believed to have spent a night since March 2020. She is instead opting for more of a 'work from home' approach to engagements, and is expected to meet dignitaries and officials at her Berkshire home. It is believed courtiers are also keen to cut down on The Queen's travel, after she admitted to feeling frail by joking 'as you can see, I can't move'...

    LONDON — Queen Elizabeth II held two virtual audiences after more than a week of suffering cold-like symptoms from Covid-19. Buckingham Palace said the 95-year-old British monarch held virtual sessions with the ambassadors of Chad and Andorra. The queen canceled several sessions last week, so the ones held Tuesday suggest she is recovering. The monarch’s age, Covid-19 diagnosis and a health scare last year caused worry among officials and the public. The palace’s Feb. 20 announcement that Elizabeth had tested positive test for the coronavirus virus prompted concern and get-well wishes from across Britain’s political spectrum. The palace has declined...

    Camilla will be crowned Queen Consort when Charles becomes King, it has been confirmed for the first time. The Queen assured the Duchess of Cornwall's future status in an historic Platinum Jubilee statement issued late last night, ending years of uncertainty over the issue. In her surprise announcement, Her Majesty declared it was her 'sincere wish' for her daughter-in-law to be fully acknowledged when Charles succeeds her. The Queen issued the message, shoring up her support for her heir and his wife, as she today marks a milestone 70 years on the Throne. The statement also quashed speculation that the...

    Queen Elizabeth II's jubilee message includes a request that her daughter-in-law, Camilla, be named Queen Consort when Prince Charles ascends to the throne. "And when, in the fullness of time, my son Charles becomes King, I know you will give him and his wife Camilla the same support that you have given me; and it is my sincere wish that, when that time comes, Camilla will be known as Queen Consort as she continues her own loyal service," the queen said in a message released Saturday night, hours before she marks 70 years on the British throne.

    Prince Andrew will no longer be known as His Royal Highness 'in any official capacity' in a stunning downfall as his family tonight abandoned him to fight his sex abuse lawsuit in America as a private citizen. Andrew, who remains Duke of York, also loses his military titles and royal patronages 'with the Queen's approval and agreement', Buckingham Palace said in a terse statement that brought his 61 years as a senior royal to a shock end. He is only the 5th royal in recent history to stop officially using the HRH title, with Princess Diana and Sarah, Duchess of...

    The Washington Examiner has broken what is, so far, the best story of the year: It turns out that Jill Biden has her own “walk-up” music. That is, whenever she makes an official appearance, this music is played for her, just as Hail to the Chief is played when the president appears. Someone within the Marine Corps band wrote it, although there is some dispute as to whether the White House requested such music or the Marine Corps band members spontaneously felt that Jill needed that special song. Becket Adams broke the story: The Marine Corps band was instructed last...

    In a most unfortunate series of events, Queen Elizabeth II has waded into politics on the global warming matter, quite contrary to her lifelong position of being above politics. Her call to action at the United Nations' COP26 global warming summit in Scotland indicates a bad shift. According an editorial, likely written by Seth Lipsky, that appeared in the New York Sun:Queen Elizabeth II made a mistake, by our lights, in abandoning her royal impartiality and plunging into the political fray at the Glasgow summit on climate change. She’s effectively thrown herself — and her crown — in on the...

    Twenty years after Queen Elizabeth II requested The Star-Spangled Banner be played outside Buckingham Palace in solidarity with the United States, a day after 9/11, the U.S. anthem played once again in Britain. The U.S. national anthem was played outside Windsor Castle at the Changing of the Guard ceremony Saturday. The Queen broke with tradition by requesting the anthem be played by the Guard outside Buckingham Palace, the day after the 9/11 attacks in 2001. After the United States, the United Kingdom lost the most citizens on 9/11, with 67 killed. America’s representative in the U.K. thanked the monarch for...

    The terror attacks on September 11, 2001, shook the free world. Americans at home, abroad and our allies mourned the tragic loss of life that day. For American expats in the United Kingdom, London became the focal point of their grief. On September 12, Queen Elizabeth II made a request that broke a 600-year-old royal tradition. For centuries, the Bands of the Household Division played music during the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace and all the other Royal Palaces and Castles. The music played during the ceremony has always been a mix of traditional British songs and popular...

    References to the Queen noticing faults in the US elections of 2020 or of the need to reform US election procedures are misplaced. The Queen’s Speech announces the legislation programme the Government of the day sets out at the State Opening of Parliament. This is part of the colorful tradition of the opening of each new session of Parliament or the opening of the new Parliament after a general election. Neither the Queen nor her advisers write the speech or contribute any of the contents. That is entirely the responsibility of the Government of the day led by the Prime...
