THE WINDSORS HIT THE RACE TRACK It’s one of the busiest weeks on the royal calendar – with Trooping the Colour, Royal Ascot and celebrations for the Order of the Garter, it’s been full on pomp and pageantry in London this past week! With visiting kings and queens to host, Her Majesty (93) and the rest of the Windsor clan were on hand at Royal Ascot to mix and mingle with King Willem (52) and Queen Maxima (48) of the Netherlands, while Zara Tindall (38) made sure to make time to catch up with her uncle Prince Charles (70)! ORDER UP! The real centrepiece of the week was the investiture of two foreign kings into the Order of the Garter – with Willem and King Felipe of Spain both made Stranger Knights of…

from the editor

If you’re looking to hibernate for a while this week, you’ve come to the right place – get the heater going, put the kettle on and settle in, because we’ve jammed a lot of reading into this issue! This week seems to be a time for marking milestones. I can barely believe it, but one of those celebrations is for the one and only Meryl Streep, who turned 70 last week. At a time when we start thinking about slowing down, Meryl is putting out some of the best work of her life. Everything she touches turns to gold on the silver screen, but in our story, Meryl takes us into her life behind the screen and how her mother inspired her to have it all. In other seemingly impossible anniversaries, we have…

remembering a glorious life

To a generation of women, she’s the genius who turned jeans into designer clothing. Gloria Vanderbilt, who died last week aged 95, created a fashion empire in the 1970s based on her slim-fitting jeans, becoming the first American to create a label using a family name. But to an earlier generation, she was best known as the US’s “poor little rich girl” – the pawn in a scandalous trial that saw her mother and aunt battle for custody of her. And despite her privileged background, she endured more than her fair share of tragedy. Born in New York in 1924, Gloria was the only child of Reginald Claypoole Vanderbilt – an heir to a railroad fortune – and his second wife, also called Gloria. Little Gloria, as she was known, inherited $2.5m…

‘right place, right time’ 70 years of meryl

Meryl Streep just turned 70, and has plenty to celebrate. The most acclaimed actress of her generation, she’s achieved a lot in her seven decades. As well as a successful career - that has landed her three Oscars, nine Golden Globes and two BAFTAs - she’s also managed to juggle work with family life, raising four children while staying happily married to husband Don Gummer for 41 years. The secret to her success? A lot of it comes down to being inspired by her mother Mary, says Meryl. “My mother always told me she believed in me and that I could achieve anything I set my mind to – there were no limits. She gave me the feeling that women can be everything if we really want it and work hard for it. She…

insta-bab y harry & meghan take back control

It’s a photo of a gorgeous baby boy, shared to mark his proud dad’s first Father’s Day. There’s nothing unusual in that. But what has got people talking about the picture of wee Archie Mountbatten-Windsor that was posted on his parents’ Instagram account is the way Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, have rapidly embraced the platform, despite Harry’s less-than-favourable views about social media. The couple have gone from lagging behind the rest of the royals in setting up an official account, to hiring someone to work exclusively on their social media. The new staff member will be on board just in time for Meghan’s return to duties from maternity leave later this year. “The Sussexes’ online enthusiasm has caused some surprise,” says a royal insider. “Meghan, though, has been a long-time…

kate’s bumpy ride

It didn’t escape people’s attention that Kate didn’t look too happy at the recent Trooping the Colour celebrations. Now it has been revealed why the mum-of-three was only able to muster the occasional smile – she was overwhelmed with nausea. The motion of the horse-drawn carriage she rode in up the Mall to Buckingham Palace with Meghan, Harry and Camilla left Kate feeling ill, says a source. “The truth is the Duchess of Cambridge gets very seasick and doesn’t enjoy the rocking motion of the carriages,” says the insider. “Protocol meant she had no choice but to go by state carriage, and worrying she might be ill on such an important occasion as Trooping the Colour added to her stress.” The motion sickness she’s prone to was also the reason why she was…
