  • My worries over this vulgar Hollywoodising of the young royals

    Prince Harry’s girlfriend, gorgeous U.S. soap star Meghan Markle, stars on the cover of the forthcoming issue of Vanity Fair, in which she is billed as his likely wife. She herself says: ‘We’re two people who are really happy and in love.’ To make the front of Vanity Fair is the dream of every Hollywood actress. Even the biggest and best would kiss the shoes of veteran editor Graydon Carter for the privilege.

    Pouting in a bejwelled crown, Lady Amelia Windsor looked nothing short of a Renaissance princess as she posed for the camera. While the young royal, who is 36th in line to the throne, no doubt has some dazzling jewels in her family, on this occasion the blue-blooded beauty was in fact making her campaign debut for Dolce & Gabbana. The 21-year-old granddaughter of the Duke of Kent, the Queen's first cousin, was cast alongside Princess Olympia of Greece, celebrity offspring and a host of social media starlets for the Italian designer's Fall 2017 shoot.

    Is there anything Chelsea Clinton can't do? Graduate from school. Straighten her hair. Get a high powered television interview job despite no experience or background while others couldn't. Get married. Have children. (in that order.) Tweet. Get gossiped about as a potential member of Congress. Write books--or at least have her name attached to them. Get appointed vice chair the Clinton Foundation. A Wonder Woman indeed with the same accomplishments as many a female born to non-famous, non-power-couple parents. But wait...there's more!

    It is now clear that what is left of the Republicon Party, after being fatally poisoned by the Bush administration, intents to commit suicide by nominating Senator John McCain (R-Hanoi) for the presidency. Where do I start? THE EARLY YEARS McCain spent his boyhood in exclusive boarding schools where staffers were paid to put up with his tirades. We all did some immature things before we matured. But with McCain, the tirades continue today. Had he not been the son and grandson of admirals, there is scant chance he would have been admitted to the U.S. Naval Academy. Given his...

    While speaking on the British radio show "Thought for the Day," the future King of Britain, Prince Charles, said that Christians should be more mindful of Islam and Muhammad during the holidays. . . . Whichever religious path we follow, the destination is the same – to value and respect the other person, accepting their right to live out their peaceful response to the love of God," he said.
  • Obama claims immunity from lawsuit under 'the king can do no wrong' maxim

    In response to a class action lawsuit by as many as 3,500 ready-to-hire air traffic controller applicants whose names were "purged" so the Federal Aviation Administration could hire based on race, federal lawyers asserted that the administration is immune from liability for denying constitutional equal protection because of sovereign immunity. In other words, they claim protection by the legal maxim rex non potest peccare, which means, "the king can do no wrong."

    Prince Harry's new love interest slammed Donald Trump as 'misogynistic' during a TV interview and threatened to leave America if he becomes president. Meghan Markle, 35, who stars in legal drama Suits, voiced her strong opposition to the Republican nominee while appearing on the Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore on May 4. Protocol dictates that members of the British Royal family must remain politically impartial. But the actress - who is not quite in the royal fold yet - tore into Trump, branding him a divisive misogynist.

    A woman accused of insulting the kooky crown prince of Thailand was publicly humiliated and forced to grovel beneath a portrait of the country’s late king, according to reports Monday. Police officers dragged Umaporn Sarasat, 43, to the portrait of King Bhumibol Adulyadej outside a police station and forced her to kneel before it Sunday — as 500 onlookers shouted wildly, according to a video posted by the Times of London.

    It was a fashion face-off of epic proportions when Michelle Obama met with Queen Letizia in Madrid today. America's first lady was joined by the glamorous royal in the Spanish capital, on what was the last leg of a trip to promote girls' education in poorer countries and raise awareness of gender inequalities. The ever-chic Letizia, 43, stunned in a sleeveless scarlet dress from Nina Ricci that showcased her toned arms, adding a pair of pointed nude courts and turquoise earrings.

    Like many recent college grads, Rep. Elijah Cummings' (D-MD) daughter Adia sought to earn some extra cash by driving for Lyft, a ridesharing service. Unlike most recent college grads, Adia was driving a car with congressional license plates--which is against the rules. After someone posted a picture of the car on Popville, Cummings apologized for his daughter's use of the plates. He then said that he would swap out the plate and that the car was not his official vehicle.Per the House of Representative rules, the plates are "only for the use of the Member and spouse, as well as...

    She's tackling an epic new role, playing Queen Victoria. And as well as playing the monarch at the tender age of 18 as she ascended the throne, Jenna Coleman's anticipated new TV drama also follows the young Queen's marriage to Prince Albert. The 29-year-old was spotted shooting wedding scenes with onscreen husband Tom Hughes in East Yorkshire this week, as work continued on the drama from acclaimed novelist Daisy Goodwin.

    A villainous pair of swans have been tormenting the good citizens of Brimscombe, a tiny village in the Cotswolds, with such viciousness that it's become national news. According to Metro UK, the two swans have vandalized property, harassed vehicles on public thoroughfares, and even attacked children. Local residents, Metro reports, have been forced to go about armed with water pistols because the authorities refuse to step in. Swans, local officials inform the fearful residents, are "protected animals."

    As we know from the stupendous BBC adaptation of Tolstoy's epic novel, War And Peace, the Russians are very good at war, not so pie-hot when it comes to peace. Military parades, manoeuvres and a good scrap are what they like best - and as Simon Sebag Montefiore says in this panoramic study, to Tsar Nicholas II, even World War I, in which Russia fielded more than 1.2 million men, was nothing more than 'a bracing national rite'.

    THE vice president of the United States was unhappy. In 1983, a "Conservative Digest" poll of conservatives found that 64 percent of right-leaning party leaders wanted George H.W. Bush replaced on the 1984 Reagan ticket. "Light reading," Bush scribbled across a cover sheet as he sent a copy to his friend James Baker - adding a frowning face. Reagan would have none of it - he liked and appreciated Bush. But the gulf between establishment and insurgent Republicans has only grown in the ensuing decades. The elder Bush's struggles through the years with a restive right shed light on the...

    Politico reports that First Lady Michelle Obama, looking lovely and classy, greeted Pope Francis Tuesday while wearing a $2,290 dress. While the Obamas are not Catholics, this is still a finger-in-the-eye to a White House guest who frequently speaks out — to wild Democrat applause — about the evils of excessive capitalism. Both President and Mrs. Obama are disciples of Jeremiah Wright, a racist Jew-hating Chicago-based preacher. Not long after Obama ascended to the presidency, Wright, Obama’s religious mentor for 20 years, retired to a $1 million, 10,400 square foot mansion located next to a country club and golf course....

    How bad is Jeb Bush's Bush problem? A new Quinnipiac poll suggests it is very bad. The national survey shows Bush running well behind Donald Trump and Ben Carson, tied for third place in the GOP race with Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. But that is not the most serious problem for Bush in the poll. Quinnipiac pollsters asked respondents a simple, open-ended question: "What is the first word that comes to mind when you think of Jeb Bush?" Quinnipiac published a table of all the responses given five or more times. Here is the list of the top eight...
