Kate Middleton will join the Queen on a rare joint engagement later this month – seven years after their last solo outing. The Duchess of Cambridge will join the monarch at Kings College London where they are set to reopen the newly renovated Grade II listed Bush House. Kate, 37, and the Queen, 92, have of course attended plenty of occasions together over the past seven years but this will be their first solo outing together since March 2012. At the time, just 11 months after she married Prince William, Kate joined her grandmother-in-law in Leicester as part of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee tour of the UK. Meanwhile Meghan Markle carried out her first solo engagement with the Queen in June, with the pair visiting Cheshire together just a month after the royal wedding in Windsor. The upcoming engagement on March 19 will see Kate accompany Her Majesty as she reopens Bush House – formerly the home of BBC World Service and now being leased by Kings of which the Queen is patron. … [Read more...] about Kate Middleton announces rare joint engagement with the Queen – seven years after their last solo outing

My sister has been addicted to prescription pain medication for the last seven years. A bright PhD student who earned €160k a year for a large company. Unfortunately she suffered an accident which resulted in spinal surgeries.This is when our nightmare began, rather than deal with her issues we noticed that her doctors gave pain medication and sleeping tablets. Two doctors prescribed the same tablets without communicating with one another.Addiction had gotten it's claws into her and has continued to suck the life out of her. My lovely sister is now a recluse in my parents house, 16 Xanax, 6 sleeping tablets, morphine patches the list is endless, she pops paracetamol like they are tablets. So much for the government only allowing you to … [Read more...] about Readers’ blog: My sister has been addicted to prescription pain medication for the last seven years

Today is the day I am leaving the UK for good. My bags are packed, passport ready, boarding pass in my pocket and by the end of the day I will be back in Europe, and yes, it is because of Brexit. I won't go into a long political explanation, because the politics are only secondary. I am leaving because of the way life in the UK has changed for me since the vote. I moved to the UK seven years ago for university. Originally, it was only to study and I wasn't planning on staying. I just wanted to improve my English. But within the first six months I realised I loved the country. I loved the people and the fact that there is no formal and informal addresses for people, just 'you', I loved the fact that people call each other 'love', whether they know me or not.

Even though I only lived in the UK … [Read more...] about ‘Why Brexit has made me leave the UK after seven years’
