happy & glorious!

What a difference a decade makes. It’s certainly brought big changes for the royal family. When 2010 rolled around, the Queen and her husband Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, were carrying out hundreds of engagements a year, despite both being in their eighties. Fast-forward 10 years and the duke is 98 and has retired from official duties, and Her Majesty, at 93, has finally started slowing down, leaving overseas tours to younger family members. She celebrated her Diamond Jubilee in 2012, and in September 2015 became Britain’s longest-reigning monarch ever. There have been two massive weddings in the last decade – Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, in 2011, and Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, in 2018. Not a bad result considering that at the start of 2010 there…

from the editor

Welcome to the roaring ‘20s! Well, truth be told, I hope the start to this new decade is more relaxing than roaring – with any luck, as you’re reading this we’ll all be somewhere with our feet up, a good book in our laps and perhaps even a chilled glass of prosecco by our sides! After a long year, I hope you’re using this time to decompress, reflect, relax and soak up the company of those you love most. You may have noticed that this issue is a little heavier than normal! The team has been hard at work (really earning that glass of prosecco!) creating a special double issue packed full of content that should hopefully keep you going until our next magazine comes out on January 6. We’ve spoken…

sweet talk

It’s not quite what you’d expect from a member of the royal family. Forget about Queen or King, one of Prince Louis’ first words was apparently Mary – after popular British baker Mary Berry. His mum Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge has revealed the one-year-old is talking, with cookbook author and TV star Mary obviously making quite the impression on him. “One of Louis’ first words was Mary because right at his height are all my cooking books in the kitchen bookshelf,” Kate (37) says in A Berry Royal Christmas, the TV special she and husband Prince William filmed with Mary (84). She told Mary, “Children are really fascinated by faces, and your face is all over your cooking books, and he would say, ‘That’s Mary Berry.’” Kate and William (37) have never revealed…

weather trio’s 2020 vision it’s sunny skies ahead!

Abeachside photoshoot in Auckland with three weather presenters is an interesting experience. Between ominous dark clouds swirling, a substantial sea breeze blowing straight into the central Auckland beach where we’re setting up our picnic, and intense rays of sun almost blinding TVNZ’s Dan Corbett, Renee Wright and Matty McLean as they settle on the blanket, it’s hard to know where to start in weatherproofing our photo session. But as the Weekly crew wonder aloud if we’re about to be drenched thanks to a niggly early summer shower, three voices pipe up, almost in unison. “Nah, we’ll be fine!” Clearly, there’s no better trio to battle the elements with. And as Renee points out, it’s a remarkable day indeed. “This is actually the first time that we’ve ever had a photo and interview together,” she says…

a golden legacy remembering sir peter snell

Back in 1960, it took Sir Peter Snell just one minute and 46 seconds to run his way to Olympic history and into the hearts of New Zealanders. Four years after winning gold in the 800m at the Rome Olympics, he cemented his status as a sporting icon by winning both the 800m and the 1500m at the Tokyo Olympics. It was three from three – he only ever entered three Olympic events, and he won all of them. His sporting career lasted just five years, and he spent nearly 50 living in the United States. But he was beloved by Kiwis for those golden moments as well as the work he did promoting sport, and when Peter died last week aged 80 at his Dallas home, there was a huge outpouring of…

home & happy noeline’s big new start

When the Weekly asks Silver Ferns coach Noeline Taurua to describe the last year of her life in a single sentence, she is, uncharacteristically, lost for words. Anyone who knows Noeline – or Noels, as she’s better and more affectionately known – also knows she doesn’t believe in word economy. “I’m not a one-word or one-sentence type of girl!” she laughs. Eventually, she settles on “humbled. And grateful. And satisfying. And exciting.” It’s fair play, really, when you consider her last 12 months. A whirlwind by anyone’s measure, and a fairytale according to the nation’s netballers, Noeline’s story is the stuff of legend. From being shunned for the top job at Netball New Zealand, to leading a battered and bruised team to a World Cup victory after a 16-year drought, it’s an underdog…
