Meghan Markle "may have been wrong in her interpretation of royal protocol" as she suggested that her son Archie had a right to be prince in the Oprah Winfrey interview, her biographer has suggested The Duchess of Sussex's royal biographer and co-author of Finding Freedom Omid Scobie has said she may have misinterpreted protocol during the bombshell CBS interview aired in March. During the explosive two-hour Oprah chat, Meghan, 39, alleged to the world that her son Archie was not made a prince due to a change in protocol and she heavily hinted she believes it to be due to his mixed race heritage. In fact, what Meghan appeared to misunderstand is that as per the George V convention, the use of HRH titles only applies to children and grandchildren of the monarch and the eldest grandson of the Prince of Wales. As a great grandchild of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Archie would not be entitled to such a title at birth, the Daily Star reports. In the Oprah interview, which was … [Read more...] about Meghan Markle ‘may have been wrong over protocol for Archie’s title’, says Omid Scobie
Pakistan has immense potential for generating electricity through solar power. Almost all parts of the South Asian country are dry and hot, barring a few areas in the northwest. However, the country currently only produces a meager 1.16% of its electricity through solar power and 64% with fossil fuels . Other electricity sources include hydropower at 27% and nuclear at 5%. Renewable energy sources count for only 4% of total electricity production. Despite being located in a region severely affected by climate change, Pakistan continues to invest in environmentally unfriendly methods of power production. Recently, the government approved seven Chinese-funded coal power projects, which will add up to 6,600 megawatts to the national grid in the coming years. Political support needed for renewables Last year, Prime Minister Imran Khan's government promised that Pakistan would produce 60% of its electricity from renewable sources by 2030.

Not much good news has come out of Yemen since the country's civil war began in late 2014. But one thing generally seen as positive has been the country's overwhelming adoption of solar power. A paper by the Berlin-based Energy Access and Development Program (EADP) describes Yemen's move to solar power as a "revolution." Even before the current conflict started, the country was described as "energy poor" compared to other Middle Eastern nations. Then, during the ongoing conflict, over half of the country's electricity infrastructure was damaged and official power supplies plummeted further. At first, locals substituted this loss with their own, often-diesel-powered generators. But after fuel supplies became more difficult to access because of blockades, and diesel prices rose accordingly, many Yemenis have been forced to switch to solar power. Solar power saves lives According to the EADP, which focuses on access to clean and affordable energy, solar power went from being … [Read more...] about How Yemen’s solar power revolution could drain the whole country of water
