There are few great equalisers in life, but the birth of a baby is certainly one. Prince Harry was every new dad as he gushed in wide-eyed awe about the experience of watching his son come into the world. Any hint of guardedness with the media or royal formality fell away as he spoke from the heart of the seemingly miraculous feat he had just witnessed his wife perform. It made me recall fondly my own husband’s reaction when our daughter was born. The spontaneous tears of joy, and no doubt relief, from a man who had claimed to be physically unable to cry – a tear duct disorder apparently. How I wish he looked at me every day with the same wonderment he did that September morning three years ago. It…

heaven sent

It was two years ago at 10.30pm when I fell down a train station escalator after missing a step. There at the bottom was my angel, Natalie. I was bleeding from the nose and she quickly came to help, waiting with me until the ambulance came. She sat with me at the hospital and held my hand as I had a few stitches. She stayed with me until 2am, even though she had to go to work the next day and was a complete stranger. My husband was away in the USA so she knew I was alone. We have remained friends and I will never forget her kindness, I had God above and my angel below. I was truly blessed. Kathy Hegarty from Paddington, NSW, will receive a $250 Gourmet…

A REAL ROLE MODEL What a joy to read your article about June Dally Watkins and her family (Miss Dally’s Girls, AWW, May). I had the pleasure to work for June back in 1963 as a young woman of 18. She was a true ‘lady’ in every sense of the word and an amazing role model for me and so many others. We kept in touch over the years, she attended my wedding in 1965 and I occasionally returned and worked for her over the years when she was in between secretaries. She is truly amazing for her age, but I think helping so many people over the years in so many ways has helped her to achieve all these things at the grand old age of 92! D. Symonds, via email ONE…

in brief news bites

Doris Day remembered WITH THE PASSING of the original American sweetheart, Doris Day, the world has lost a light, her friends said. Yet, the actress leaves behind a legacy of joy and compassion for the voiceless. The Calamity Jane star is best known for her musical talent and her comic timing in 1950s and ’60s classics opposite Rock Hudson and Cary Grant – her sunny persona entertained a generation. But later in life she devoted herself to animal rights. The CEO of the Doris Day Animal Foundation, Dr T. Robert Bashara, paid tribute to the late star, saying: “She was truly a voice for the voiceless among us, a bright and beautiful champion for the cause of animal welfare.” STARS PUT THE AMP IN CAMP Feathers, sequins and glitter, The Met Gala always…

royal bundle of joy

“A new chapter for the House of Windsor on the cusp of a modern era.” The build-up to the birth of the royal we all knew as “baby Sussex” was filled with suspense and mystery. While the public and we royal reporters ached for any skerrick of information we could garner from the palace, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were resolutely drawing a line in the sand. The couple’s first child would be born privately behind closed doors. Those doors might be at their new family home, Frogmore Cottage, a stone’s throw from Harry’s granny’s place at Windsor Castle, or at a hospital, but no one would be told. The usual posse of royal fans who traditionally gather to celebrate champagne in hand and especially journalists and photographers were not welcome.…
