what a week

‘I JUST WANT TO STAY ALIVE!’ Dame Judi Dench has joked that her main ambition for the next five years is simply to still be here. ‘Where do I want to be in five years? I would like to be alive,’ she said at a theatre event recently. The actor, 86, also revealed that she’d like to take on some more exciting roles in the future. ‘Not only do I want to be alive, but I would like to be offered a part that is not some old woman in a home somewhere,’ she confessed. ‘I would like to be a crocodile that turns into a dragon and has to walk a tightrope.’ Now, we’d love to see that! PET OF THE WEEK With a face like that, Kate Lawler’s pooch Baxter must…

meghan won’t stop’

I believe that a very defiant Meghan has set herself on a collision course with Buckingham Palace after mounting claims she was the ‘bully not the victim’. The Duchess of Sussex’s legal team is said to be demanding ‘full disclosure’ of documents relating to allegations that she ‘bullied at least two members of palace staff out of a job’ during the months after the royal wedding. And, as the formal investigation heats up, my insider tells me, ‘Meghan is determined to refute each of the claims made against her one by one.’ Now, though, it is reported that 10 former or current palace staff who worked closely with the duchess before she quit royal life have come forward to aid the investigation. Legal challenges ‘Friends say this is typical’ With increasing battle lines being drawn on…

‘emily and i won’t be having more children

‘I’m already blessed’ These past few months haven’t been easy for any of us, and even singer Peter Andre, 48, found himself thrown in at the deep end during the height of the pandemic. The dad-of-four held the fort at home while his wife Emily MacDonagh, 31, worked on the front line as a doctor, and Peter confesses that parenting really is the toughest job of all. What’s more, Pete – dad to Junior, 16, and Princess, 14, with ex-wife Katie Price and daughter Amelia, 7, and son Theodore, 4, with Emily – tells Woman why he’s finally drawn a line in the sand when it comes to expanding his brood… How did you find staying at home while Emily went to work during the pandemic? I have never been a stay-at-home dad, so…

royal accounts don’t add up for sussexes

Harry and Meghan’s interview with Oprah Winfrey was shocking on many fronts, but questions have been raised over the authenticity of what they said, versus many other accounts that have latterly surfaced. The Duke of Sussex declared he had no choice but to look for work after being ‘financially cut off’ by the royals. There was no Palace denial at the time and the accusation was accepted as fact. Except it doesn’t appear to be fact. Annual accounts published by Clarence House reveal the pair took a sizeable chunk of the £4.5m handed by Prince Charles to his sons during the period they say they were left out in the cold. A spokesman for the couple hit back, insisting people were ‘conflating two different timelines’ and it was ‘inaccurate to suggest there is…

the diana ’ i knew

For me, as I’m sure for many others, it seems almost impossible to imagine Diana, Princess of Wales, at the age of 60. Her image remains frozen in time, an elegant, glamorous 36-year-old global icon. She was someone who dominated my life for more than a decade. As the BBC’s royal correspondent, I was required to report on every event in her very busy life. I had a daughter, born at the start of the 90s: the decade that was consumed by the so-called ‘War of the Waleses’, as the marriage of Charles and Diana so publicly collapsed. But Diana’s dramas took precedence over motherhood and, all too frequently, I simply had to drop everything – including my child – and race to the BBC. Complicated character Diana was someone I got to…
