the queen & prince philip the greatest royal love story

When the Duke of Edinburgh passed away on April 9, it brought his love story with Queen Elizabeth II to a peaceful end. His death at Windsor Castle at the age of 99, just weeks shy of his milestone 100th birthday, has plunged Buckingham Palace into mourning – and no one is more devastated than his wife of 73 years, the Queen. Palace insiders tell Woman’s Day Her Majesty – while as stoic as ever – is in a “wistful mood” as she reflects on a long, rich life with the man she fell for when she was just 13 years old. It would be a few years before their friendship turned into romance in a fairytale that scandalised some and captivated many. A NAVY MAN During a 1939 tour of the Royal Naval College…

kia ora!

I was just about to hit the hay when the news came through about Prince Philip’s death. Sure, he was 99 and had recently spent a month in hospital, so it wasn’t strictly a surprise, but I was shocked nonetheless – he’s been a commanding royal presence ever since I can remember. I have hazy memories of going to a tree-planting event with my Kea scout group and seeing him there in his role as president of the World Wildlife Fund.

I’m sure the supervising teachers were cursing his name as we chatted loudly all night. Our hearts go out…

ange’s secret date with diplo!

Angelina Jolie hasn’t been linked to anyone in a long time, but the actress has sparked rumours she may have embarked on her most random romance yet after she was snapped enjoying time with DJ Diplo at a barbecue! The 45-year-old actress was seen smiling as she relaxed at the casual gathering in an Instagram story Diplo shared to social media. And while it seems the pair would have little in common, insiders speculated the actress may have met the 42-year-old music star through her 17-year-old son Pax, who is a budding DJ.
