Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are among a host of royals attending a garden party to mark Prince Charles’ 70th birthday today. But, given Charles’ birthday is not until 14 November, why are they celebrating it with a garden soiree six months early? The garden party is being held by Charles and Camilla, Duchess Of Cornwall, to honour the work of The Prince Of Wales’ charities in his 70th year. Given a garden party can’t exactly take place in November – and Charles has got one heck of a lot of celebrating to do this year – the decision was made to stagger out the events and host the garden party in the summer. Members of the emergency services who were on the scene on the night of the terror attack, which killed 22 people and injured a further 59 , will also be in attendance. A minute’s silence was held at a garden party last year for the 22 victims who were killed and those who were injured when a suicide bomb was detonated after an Ariana Grande concert on … [Read more...] about Why is there a Buckingham Palace garden party for Prince Charles’ 70th birthday six months early?

Prince Harry is determinded to keep his honeymoon destination schtum. Harry and new wife Meghan Markle appeared at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday evening, oining the Queen for the Young Leaders Awards. And while there, young philanthropist Mavis Elias, from Namibia, asked if they had visited her country on their romantic holiday. Harry responded: ‘No, we didn’t go to Namibia.

The first words Prince Harry said to his bride Meghan Markle as they met at the altar were ‘you look amazing’. Meghan, who will become an HRH and the Duchess of Sussex after marrying Harry, looked radiant and smiled as she replied with ‘thank you’. Harry, who is now the Duke of Sussex after being given the title by the Queen in the morning, looked slightly nervous as he waited patiently at the altar in St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle. He was dressed in his smart frockcoat uniform of the Blues and Royals, and flanked by his best man and older brother the Duke of Cambridge.

One of the highlights of the royal wedding was watching Prince Harry and Prince William’s brotherly banter as they sat at the altar waiting for Meghan Markle ’s arrival. The two brothers were all smiles and jokes as they sat next to each other, with William performing his best man duties. At some points it even looked like they were trying to stifle laughter. The scenes were reminiscent of William’s own wedding seven years ago, as his best man Harry stood at the front of Westminster Abbey with him, laughing and joking as they waiting for Kate Middleton to arrive. Naturally, royal fans now want to know exactly what William and Harry were saying to each other throughout the ceremony – and what Harry said to Meghan when she arrived.

"Let's go back to the '50s," Prince William beams, donning the medals he 'earned' by being a Mummy's boy - while commoner Kate slips into her budget-friendly Alexander McQueen dress (a hopeful omen, perhaps?). "Smile and wave," he says, standing symbolically high on his moving pedestal , the corners of his mouth slowly slipping. Why isn't everybody cheering for the white man? Will thinks. Yes, the monarchy benefitted from slavery. Yes, protestors are calling for reparations . Yes, I'm completely out of touch but I got up on stage and declared slavery should NEVER have happened . What more can I do? "I wonder if this was a mistake?" Kate whispers - the first thought she'd formed on her own in a while - as she shakes the hand of a Black child through the prison- I mean gates.
