    A controversial US bishop raised a few eyebrows in the chapel with his fiery address at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding. The Most Reverend Michael Curry mentioned slavery, the Old Testament and quoted the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr in his unusual speech. The passionate preacher provoked a few chuckles in the chapel - and even Harry and Meghan couldn't help but snigger at one point. Meanwhile Prince William seemed to be desperately trying to hold back a fit of giggles as Rev. Curry talked about how 'fire made it possible to text and tweet’.

    This has been the fortnight of the first ladies. Last week, the focus was on two former first ladies, one through mourning and fond admiring recollections, and one through yet another book of scathing analytical criticism. Barbara Bush was celebrated for her blunt dignity. Hillary Clinton was recalled for her campaign of blunt excuses for her own failures. In death, Bush was praised as an old-fashioned matriarch speaking her mind with a sharp tongue, loved by family and lauded as the wife of one president and the mother of another. In life, Clinton has never been at home in...
  • Celebrating British Royalty Is Anathema To America

    A baby was recently born in England. This is something that happens with a fair amount of frequency and wouldn’t be of much note except that the baby was born to Prince William Arthur Philip Louis, HG, KT, PC ADC(P), duke of Cambridge, presumably a future king of England (and yes, that whole thing is his name). I suppose it’s fine and reasonable for the British people, who for some reason enjoy being ruled, to celebrate the birth of a new person better than them, but for an American it’s unbecoming and should be discouraged. While the British monarchy is...

    She signed autographs, was given flowers, had her hand kissed – and even took part in a group hug. Meghan Markle passed her initiation with flying colours as she made her first visit to Wales yesterday. As she and Prince Harry continued their pre-wedding tour of the UK, the actress praised her husband to be, who is officially Prince Henry of Wales. Chatting to the crowds who had waited patiently in the cold outside Cardiff Castle, she was lauded by Jessica Phillips, 23, for her outspoken feminist views. Miss Markle, 36, replied: 'He [Harry] is a feminist too, so there's...

    The Queen had just stepped out of a Rolls-Royce to greet 3,500 well wishers when a distinctive crack rang out across the grassy reserve. According to former Dunedin police det sgt Tom Lewis (no relation to the shooter), police immediately attempted to disguise the seriousness of the threat, telling the British press the noise was a council sign falling over. Later, under further questioning from reporters, they said someone had been letting off firecrackers nearby. According to Tom Lewis, the then prime minister Robert Muldoon feared if word got out about how close the teenager had come to killing the...

    The model girlfriend of a United Kingdom Independent Party leader was suspended from the political party after she reportedly made “racist” remarks about Meghan Markle, saying the duchess-to-be has a “tiny brain” and will “taint” the Royal family with “her seed.” Henry Bolton’s girlfriend, Jo Marney, apologized on Sunday for her “shocking language” in a series of text messages she sent to a friend, the Associated Press reported. The 25-year-old, who describes herself as a “presenter, music journalist, model, actor [and] Brexiteer,” said her words were “taken out of context.” In the text messages, published by The Mail on Sunday,...

    Telegraph ^ | 1/14/05 | Neil Tweedie and Michael Kallenbach
    Politicians, pressure groups and religious leaders queued up yesterday to criticise Prince Harry after the publication of a photograph showing him wearing Nazi insignia at a private party. The 20-year-old prince, who is third in line to the throne, was castigated by, among others, the Tory leader Michael Howard, the Israeli foreign minister and survivors of the concentration camps for wearing a crude imitation uniform including a swastika armband. The furore, which has made headlines around the world, represents a new low for the prince, whose late teenage years have been characterised by a facility for "hell-raising", including excessive drinking,...

    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.

    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."
