Germany is on the frontline of controversial debate that has put European governments in a quandary – whether to recognise child marriage. The dilemma is a legacy of Europe’s migration influx, which has seen more than a million refugees and migrants arrive in Germany over the last two years. Denmark and The Netherlands have also been grappling with the issue, which UNICEF claims can lead to a lifetime of deprivation and disadvantage, putting the child at greater risk of falling pregnant early, dropping out of school and being in a violent relationship. There were 1,475 married children living in Germany last summer, according to official figures , but some NGO s say this figure could be much higher. Terre Des Femmes ( TDF ) says around a quarter of the children were assumed to be under 14, with one, a 13-year-old pregnant girl, thought to have married at 11.

Prince Charles is a demanding boss with a 'fierce temper and a ferocious work ethic' who sometimes 'falls under the spell' of outside advisers, according to a new book quoting former employees. One former member of his household described how the King can go from 'zero to 60 in a flash and then back down again', although he 'rarely directs' his anger at individuals. 'Things would frustrate him, especially the media,' the insider told Valentine Low in his new book, Courtiers: The Hidden Power Behind the Crown, extracts of which have been published in The Times . Former members of Charles' staff described him as someone with 'enormous stamina' and lots of ideas who is 'always working... seven days a week'. While the King is 'very demanding of himself' he expects similar from his staff, with phone calls coming 'at any time' until 11pm at night and even at Christmas - the book claims. 'At any moment he may want to call you about something. Working on his boxes, on his ideas, … [Read more...] about King Charles is a ‘demanding boss’ with ‘a fierce temper and ferocious work ethic’, bombshell new royal book claims

Ella Bates-Hermans The notion of “free” childcare is a myth. Early childhood education is not just expensive – it can even be difficult to find a spot in a quality centre. National Correspondent Michelle Duff reports in the latest from an investigation into childcare . She’s working 16-hour shifts to support her family, but nurse Maima Tapumanaia can’t sleep for worrying about who will care for her youngest baby. “My heart is thumping, I’m just terrified,” says Tapumanaia, watching Litia, 23 months, happily playing in the sandpit on the closing day of her current child care centre. “She’ll be the youngest at her new place, there’s just two teachers in between 20 kids, and I can’t start her there for three weeks,” she says. “I can’t work at all, but I can’t lose my job.

Euronews first met this Ukrainian couple from Irpin back in 2019 during the presidential elections in Ukraine. Back then Anastasia and Roman Akulenko could hardly have imagined that some years later they l would have had to hide underground with their two daughters and then flee their home running for their lives, not knowing if they would return. “It was very scary. My husband was on the balcony and the warplanes went just above his head. He thought the rockets were launched towards us and screamed ‘on the floor’ we all fell and then we all hid in the bathroom, where we got dressed and went to the underground cellar. Since then, the children didn’t want to go back upstairs at all. We spent one night in the cellar and in the morning, we hit the road,” Anastasia remembers.
