  • More big names say no to King Charles

    03/06/2023 11:19:42 AM PST · by Red Badger · 95 replies ^ | March 6, 2023 | Charlotte Foster
    With King Charles' Coronation just weeks away, the Palace is scrambling to secure big-name musicians to perform on the big day. According to reports from The Sun, the royal team is struggling to secure artists for His Majesty’s big Windsor Castle concert on May 6th, after three more acts have reportedly turned down the royal gig. Elton John, the Spice Girls and Harry Styles had all been invited to perform, but have had to turn down the offer due to conflicting tour schedules. A source tells The Sun, “Organisers are working against the clock to pull together an exciting line-up...
  • Prince Harry says brother William physically attacked him after calling Meghan 'difficult' and rude' in 2019 bust-up: Duke of Sussex was 'knocked to the floor' and left with visible injuries he claims in new book Spare

    Prince Harry has claimed his brother William grabbed him by the collar and threw him to the floor during a heated argument over his wife Meghan Markle. In an extraordinary excerpt from his upcoming autobiography Spare, Harry recalls what he describes as a physical attack by his sibling, now the Prince of Wales, which he claims left him with visible injuries. The furious row allegedly broke out at his London home in 2019, during which William is said to have branded Meghan 'difficult', 'rude' and 'abrasive'. Harry accused his brother of 'parroting the press narrative' about his wife before a...
  • Joe Biden signs bill axing rail-worker sick days plea before royals meeting

    WASHINGTON — President Biden signed legislation Friday forcing railway unions to accept a labor agreement despite worker objections to a lack of paid sick days — hours before hobnobbing with visiting British royals. Biden regularly calls himself the “most pro-union president” in history but asked Congress to intervene Monday, saying the US economy could not bear a railway shutdown. The president will meet Friday afternoon in Boston with Prince William, the heir to the UK crown, and his wife Kate Middleton — creating awkward optics after the president also hosted billionaires and Hollywood stars Thursday night for a lux state...

    A British author has called for King Charles III to remove Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal titles "swiftly and decisively", as he claimed an award given to the Sussexes was an "insult" to the monarchy. Nile Gardiner, a foreign policy analyst and former aide to Margaret Thatcher, spoke out after it emerged that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will receive a human rights award for standing up to "structural racism" in the Royal Family....

    Recently demoted CNN host Don Lemon was caught like a deer in the headlights Monday night when he asked British royal commentator Hillary Fordwich whether the British royal family should pay reparations, claiming that some in the United Kingdom “want to be paid back.” “England is facing rising costs of living, a living crisis, austerity budget cuts, and so on. And then you have those who are asking for reparations for colonialism, and they’re wondering, you know, $100 billion, $24 billion here and there, $500 million there,” Lemon explained. “Some people want to be paid back, and members of the...

    Meghan Markle's upcoming Variety cover has been postponed out of respect to the Queen, as the royal family mourns her passing. The outlet revealed on Thursday that Duchess Meghan had been chosen as one of their "Power of Women" honorees. "Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, was chosen as one of one of this year’s stellar honorees," Variety wrote on Twitter. "The Duchess’ cover will be postponed to a later date, out of respect for the recent passing of Queen Elizabeth II." Variety also confirmed that "similarly, [Meghan] will not attend the Power of Women event in Los Angeles later this...

    The Yankees are unlikely to continue pursuing a trade for Andrew Benintendi, the Royals’ All-Star left fielder, because he is not vaccinated against COVID-19, The Post’s Jon Heyman reports. Benintendi, 28, is one of 10 Royals players not making the trip to Toronto for a four-game series against the Blue Jays that starts Thursday night. Those players are not allowed to enter Canada because of their vaccination status. The Yankees, who had a fully vaccinated roster when they went to Toronto in early May and mid-June, have one more trip to Canada remaining: a three-game series against the Blue Jays...

    Prince Charles personally accepted suitcases and shopping bags stuffed with millions of dollars’ worth of cash from a controversial Qatari politician between 2011 and 2015, according to an explosive new report. “Everyone felt very uncomfortable about the situation,” a former adviser to the Prince of Wales told the Sunday Times of London. The “only thing we could do was to count the money and make a mutual record of what we’d done,” the source said. “And then call the bank.” Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber Al Thani, the former prime minister of Qatar, bestowed the big bucks on the...

    While she may not be everyone’s cup of Earl Grey, you cannot deny that there are many things women could be learning from her example today. In my humble opinion we have been long overdue a role model like Kate. Let the royal lessons begin… Trends come and go, fashions change and seasons come and go but steadfast determination and patience win in the end. It’s actually rather sexy to be conservative and dignified - men rarely treat with respect the kind of girls who give themselves away too easily to any boy who pays them attention. Remember that the...
  • Harry & Meghan say they want to escape the publicity. Really? Has any other couple enjoyed and/or endured as much publicity ?

    Has any other couple enjoyed and/or endured as much publicity as Harry and Meghan? Remember the fairy-tale romance started with a blind date? Soon they were jet-setting around the world. This was followed by the engagement, a magnificent wedding, and a year later a bouncing baby boy, Archie. Were they living happily ever after? As in all fairy tales, there was a murky underside. The couple stated the British media had been unfair. Among other issues were family drama and a massive case of ‘I-want-my-own-way.’ They announced they were stepping down from royal duties and moving to North America to...

    The Monarch’s lavish living quarters at Buckingham Palace are set to be reduced to little more than “a flat above the shop” when Prince Charles becomes King. The plan is part of a radical drive to overhaul the vast Royal estate, which will involve the official London residence being thrown open to the public more than ever before. Other changes being considered under Charles’ wide-ranging plans include turning Balmoral into a museum to the Queen and moving the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge into Windsor Castle, The Mail on Sunday understands. Charles is said not to want the Berkshire residence...

    Mary Robertson, an American businesswoman who lived in London in 1980, hired a young woman to be her nanny. She had no clue that her nanny would later be known as Princess Diana. Back in 2017, Inside Edition interviewed Mary Robertson about Lady Diana Spencer's time working for her and what she labeled as the late Princess' "happiest year of her life." At that point, the People's Princess made only $5 an hour taking care of Mary's toddler son, Patrick, and handling several other activities, including doing their laundry, picking up a bunch of toys and washing the dishes.

    Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh and husband of Queen Elizabeth II, has died at age 99, the royal family announced Friday. Philip and the queen were married for more than 70 years, making him the longest-serving spouse of a reigning British monarch. He was the oldest-ever male member of the British royal family. Philip was born on the Greek island of Corfu on June 10, 1921, to Prince Andrew of Greece and Princess Alice of Battenberg.

    National Interest ^ | 3/14/2021 | Sumantra Maitra
    For the uninitiated, a thin-skinned D-lister celebrity gave an interview to her billionaire talk show host friend about how austere aristocratic codes made her feel suffocated. This resulted in another talk show host, Piers Morgan, complaining on live television that there was a distinct possibility that the aforementioned celeb and her husband were perhaps full of it. Morgan’s exact phrase was that he “didn’t believe a word” of what Meghan Markle said. That bizarrely led to Meghan Markle complaining to the overarching supervisory media watchdog in Britain, which then led, nolens volens, to Morgan being fired. Enter Osbourne. Out of...

    Meghan Markle's former TV father is not impressed with the bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey that aired on Sunday. The actor, who played Robert Zane on Suits, slammed the interview as being "insensitive" due to it being carried out during the ongoing pandemic. "Today, 3,000 people are going to die in America from Covid. A couple of hundred people are going to die, even this hour, in the U.K.," he told LBC Radio. "It was quite insensitive and offensive that we are all complicit in this sort of palace gossip in the midst of so much death. I think it...

    I'm probably second to none in my dislike for Meghan Markle. There's something unattractive about a mature woman marrying into the British royal family with one of the world's most expensive weddings, hanging out with the queen, living in insane luxury...and then whining nonstop about the horror of her life. There's something even less appealing when that woman accuses the royal family of race-hatred. And the problem is that, when it comes to that left-wing diva, Meghan Markle, it's hard to believe most of what she says. After weeks of hype, CBS finally televised Meghan Markle's and Prince Harry's interview...
