    Prince Harry and Meghan have been damned today after spending Ł2.4million of public money doing up their new home in the grounds of Windsor Castle with the cost expected to balloon to Ł3million. The newlyweds moved out of Kensington Palace this spring amid reports of a rift with Prince William and his wife Kate, whose joint Royal Foundation with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex was also broken up last week. The Ł2.4million 'substantial overhaul' of Frogmore Cottage - a gift to the couple from the Queen - was approved by Her Majesty but it is still not complete with...

    PRESIDENT TRUMP: ...This week, we commemorate a mighty endeavor of righteous nations and one of the greatest undertakings in all of history. Seventy-five years ago, more than 150,000 Allied troops were preparing on this island to parachute into France, storm the beaches of Normandy, and win back our civilization. As Her Majesty remembers, the British people had hoped and prayed and fought for this day for nearly five years. ...On D-Day, the Queen’s beloved father King George the Sixth delivered a stirring national address. That day, he said, “After nearly five years of toil and suffering, we must renew that...

America’s first couple came bearing a silver and silk poppy brooch from Tiffany & Co. in a custom red leather White House jewelry box for her majesty, according to the White House. The queen’s husband received a personalized Air Force One jacket and a signed first edition autobiography of James Doolittle titled, “I Could Never Be So Lucky Again.”

    The Duchess of Cambridge visited the home of the Second World War codebreakers who helped decipher the German Enigma machine. Middleton went to see an exhibition on the team’s role in D-Day ahead of the 75th anniversary of the landings in June. But Bletchley Park is of particular significance to Kate as her grandmother Valerie Glassbow was one of the codebreakers who helped crack Nazi military messages. The team were crucial in helping Allied forces stay one step ahead as they planned their invasion of Normandy. Kate, 37, re-wore a Ł1,750 polka dot dress as she mingled with the crowd...

    Britain's Prince Harry will join Queen Elizabeth II at a private lunch with Donald Trump and his wife Melania next month, CNN has learned. The lunch takes place on the first day of the US President's state visit to the UK. Prince Harry's wife, Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, is not expected to attend. She has not resumed public engagements since the birth of their son Archie Harrison. Historically, Harry has only participated in the state visit by Spain's monarch, where he accompanied the Spanish delegation to Westminster Abbey. CNN's royal source says that going forward, they hope to see...

    Britain’s Queen Victoria was born 200 years ago today in Kensington Palace, London. An unlikely leader—she was fifth in line to the throne at birth—Victoria went on to serve as one of the longest-reigning monarchs in the world before her death in 1901. The Queen had an enormous impact far beyond the borders of the U.K. during her time on the throne—the effects of which are still seen today. Here are five surprising things you might not know about the former sovereign.

    Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, unveiled the "Back to Nature" garden she helped design at the RHS [Royal Hospital] Chelsea Flower show this weekend. The duchess' garden was created with a particular purpose -- to encourage children to play outside -- tying into the focus of her work on how important the early years of life are in childhood development and in setting the stage for a child's future. "I believe that spending time outdoors when we are young can play a role in laying the foundations for children to become happy, healthy adults,” she said, speaking ahead of the...

    The Duchess of Sussex was pregnant when she stood in front of the altar. And she was in love — not with her husband-to-be but her cousin. No, not Meghan, obviously — but the last woman to bear the title Duchess of Sussex. More than 200 years ago, a red-headed royal prince fell in love with a dark-haired older woman. What followed was a web of love, lies, deceit and royal disgrace which was to last 40 years. She was Lady Augusta Murray, daughter of the Earl of Dunmore. He was Prince Augustus Frederick, sixth son of 'mad' King George...

    She kept the world guessing for weeks over what she and Prince Harry would call their first born, and stunned royal watchers when the pair eventually revealed the baby's name was Archie. Fans and experts alike praised the couple for shunning more 'traditional' monikers in favour of Archie, which means 'brave', and is often used as a shortened form of Archibold. Now friends of the Duchess of Sussex have claimed the former actress took inspiration for the little boy's first name from a beloved family pet. A former close friend of Meghan revealed that the ex-Suits actress and her mother...
  • Archie Harrison: The meaning behind the royal baby's name

    BBC ^ | May 2019 | Francesca Gillett
    Archie means "genuine", "bold" or "brave" - and is more popular in Britain than the US. It was originally a shortened form of Archibald but is now often used as a name on its own. And, rather fittingly, Harrison - a name which was originally used as a surname - means "son of Harry". Mountbatten-Windsor is the surname which was created in 1960, combining the surnames of the Queen and Prince Philip when they married. The double-barrelled name was a concession to the Duke of Edinburgh, who was said to have complained that his children would not bear his name....

    OK, CNN. Meaning CNN could go even lower, drilling through the rock to fall into some netherworld. Though the original tweet has been deleted, the question and quote remain in the original article. (The Daily Show's Amber Ruffin, among others, captured the original in all its unglory.)

    Just hours after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle revealed their newborn son to the world, the child’s name has been announced. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have named their child Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, the couple revealed via Instagram. The Queen was told of the child’s name when she met him for the first time today, following Meghan and Harry’s two-minute interview at Windsor Castle. Doria Ragland, Meghan’s mother, and the Duke of Edinburgh were also present during the meeting with the Queen. The seventh-in-line to the throne, who was born at 05:26am on 6 May 2019, hasn’t yet had...

    The birth of Prince Harry and Meghan's baby boy has signalled the first time that a person has had the right to become both the British monarch and the US President. Baby Sussex is automatically a British citizen based on the Duke of Sussex's citizenship status and also due to being born in the UK. But assuming Meghan did not voluntarily give up her own US citizenship when she married Harry, which she was no required to do by law, the baby will also be granted American citizenship himself. The implication of being naturally-born citizen of the United States means...

    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...
  • Prince Charles Snubs President Trump—But Visits Cuba and Proudly Poses with Che Guevara Backdrop

    “Royal family snub President Trump during UK visit: Prince Charles and Prince William were unwilling to meet Donald Trump on his visit to Britain, leaving the Queen to greet the US president alone.” (London Times, July 18, 2018.)Well, what could be more fitting than British royals snubbing the upstart leader of an upstart former British colony—and one who was elected by “deplorables” to boot? On the other hand, Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla, not only rank as the first British Royals to grace Bolshevik Cuba with a visit—but this week (aping President Obama three years ago) posed for a photo in...

    Britain’s Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, thumbed their noses at the victims of Venezuelan atrocities last week with an official trip to Cuba—the first ever by a member of the British royal family. The Castro regime enthusiastically circulated photographs of the British delegation in front of a Che Guevara icon in Havana, a tired and gimmicky invocation of 1960s radical chic that’s even more farcical in the 21st century. Under Castro rule since 1959, Cuba has gone from being one of the most developed countries in Latin America to a low-rent tourist destination famous for child prostitution, crime, poverty...

    Nellie Ohr — Justice Department official Bruce Ohr’s wife — met with Trump dossier author and former British spy Christopher Steele the day before the FBI launched its Trump-Russia investigation. The meeting took place at the Mayflower Hotel, which was described by President Harry Truman as "Washington's second-best address." President John F. Kennedy once kept an apartment — and a mistress — there. In 2008, Governor Eliot Spitzer of New York used an assumed name to book room 871 and meet a prostitute.
