resolute royals

From delighting kids at a children’s hospital through to revealing poignant photos taken to mark the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge has had quite a week. Kate, a keen photographer, unveiled two portraits she took of holocaust survivors Yvonne Bernstein and Steven Frank and their grandchildren, which will be included in an upcoming exhibition for The Royal Photographic Society. “It was a true honour to have been asked to participate in this project and I hope in some way Yvonne and Steven’s memories will be kept alive as they pass the baton to the next generation,” Kate (38) said in a statement accompanying the photos’ release. She and Prince William also attended a memorial event in London, where they lit candles alongside survivors and William…

from the editor

Years back when I caught up with Colin Hogg to have a chat regarding bringing him back to the Weekly, he told me what a soft spot he had for this magazine, and about all the friendly readers who would come up for a chat about his column while he was browsing the aisles in the supermarket. Personally, I’d never had such an encounter – I’ve had many wonderful conversations with people at reader events, movie screenings and talks, but never a chat out of the blue. That is until last week. I had just parked my car and was on my way down the street when I heard someone call out, “Miss! Miss!” I was the only one about, so I turned around and saw a group of five young men…

by royal appointment kiri’s majestic honour

One’s a monarch, the other is musical royalty. Dame Kiri Te Kanawa has had a long history with the Queen and her family, including famously singing at the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer. But the esteem in which she’s held by the royals was particularly evident last week when the opera star received special treatment, sitting alongside Her Majesty on a car ride to church. Kiri (75) looked chummy with the monarch as the pair were driven from Sandringham to nearby St Mary Magdalene for the Sunday morning service. Both women were wrapped up warm against the chilly winter weather, with the Queen (93) in a furry hat with a blanket over her knees in the back of her Rolls-Royce. Meanwhile, the Queen’s daughter Anne, Princess Royal, (69) walked from…

thomas’ tirade ‘this is not the girl i raised’

If Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, hoped to escape the media spotlight in the UK, her father certainly seems to have other ideas, once again using the press in a desperate bid to reach out to his daughter. Just days after a bombshell TV documentary aired in which Thomas Markle accused his daughter of “cheapening” the royal family, the beleaguered dad has hit out again, appearing in a second documentary, and he’s now saying he will give an interview every 30 days until his daughter or son-in-law call him. Last week TVNZ aired Thomas Markle: My Story, in which Meghan’s estranged father spoke of his sadness that the pair have not spoken since before her 2018 wedding to Prince Harry. He says he desperately wanted to be at the wedding…

sweetie, darling jennifer’s still ab fab!

Jennifer Saunders recently found her five-year-old grandson Bertie staring at her oddly. “I said, ‘Is there something wrong? What is it?’” Bertie kept looking at his grandmother, his gaze focused at a point just below her chin. “Are you growing a beard?” Jennifer recounts he asked, breaking into laughter. “I had one little black hair here,” she points at the underside of her chin. “But I couldn’t see it. It made me laugh so much.” At 61, Jennifer is strikingly gorgeous – chin fluff and all. She arrives at her Central London private members’ club with hair that looks tousled yet blow-dried, wearing trainers and a flappy jacket-cum-cardigan that fashion journalists would call ‘artfully draped’. It’s 1.30pm and the first thing she does is order a gin and tonic, which arrives in a…

the wrap up...

J-LO’S DONE WITH HUSTLING! SHE’S HAD ENOUGH OF HOLLYWOOD! It was supposed to be her year – but after failing to secure an Oscar nomination or take home any other silverware she was nominated for, sources say Jennifer Lopez is keen to get out of Dodge and turn her back on Hollywood for good. Many believe the Hustlers actress was unfairly snubbed when this year’s Oscar nominations were announced and her name wasn’t included in the Best Actress category – and the star seems to think the same. “Jennifer was so upset about being overlooked. She’s been crying ever since,” a pal tells. “She feels like she’s one of the hardest-working actresses in this town and yet she still doesn’t get any respect,” they say, adding she and husband, baseball star Alex Rodriguez (44),…
