re united!

There’s nothing like a day at the track to bring a family together! Despite rifts and splits aplenty recently, Anne, Princess Royal’s branch of the family put on a united front at the Cheltenham Racecourse last week, with newly separated Peter and Autumn Phillips enjoying a day at the races together, along with Peter’s sister and brother-in-law, Zara and Mike Tindall. Peter (42) and Autumn (41), who announced their split last month, arrived at the festivities together and looked relaxed and happy in each other’s company as they cheered on their horses. Also present was Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall’s ex-husband, Andrew Parker-Bowles (80), who remains a friend of the family.…

from the editor

It certainly hasn’t been the easiest start to the year . Understandably, 2020 and its twists and turns already have a fair few people feeling anxious. And while I don’t want to make light of any of the big issues of the moment, I do want to serve up a bit of good cheer and happiness to you this week. There’s nothing quite like a wedding – particularly one filled with so much genuine love and joy – to really lift your spirits. Two weeks ago I packed plenty of tissues and spent a long weekend on Waiheke with good friends to watch two of my favourite people tie the knot (much to the delight of their gorgeous young children). And last Friday I was lucky enough to do it all again…

paul’s pride  bella’s fairytale day

It may come as somewhat of a surprise to hear he’s a great fan of fairytales, Tinkerbell and magic dust, but indeed, one of the things that gives Paul Henry true joy is the enchanted world of Disney. Ultimately though, his three gorgeous grown-up daughters are his greatest source of delight - and last Friday those elements combined for a dream day as Paul walked his youngest, Bella, down the aisle in a Disney-themed celebration, complete with his own custom-made Mickey Mouse-inspired suit. The Sunday papers called him ‘the world’s scariest Father of the Bride’ after hearing rumours the wedding was taking place, but his new son-in-law Julyan Collett (31) says he now knows a different man to what people may have seen on the telly. “He’s an incredible father to these girls…

royally off duty harry’s bittersweet goodbye

It was the end of an era. Prince Harry, accompanied by wife Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, carried out his final engagement as a senior member of the royal family last week. But what was undoubtedly a poignant occasion for the prince unfortunately also appeared to be an extremely awkward and uncomfortable one. As he attended the Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey with his family for the last time, Harry (35) looked pensive and ill at ease. His interactions with brother Prince William and sister-in-law Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, were described as frosty and strained too. But royal insiders are divided over whether Harry’s demeanour was due to the fact that he was desperate to get the event out of the way so he can get on with his new life in Canada…

kate’s happier place to be

Her husband may have been angry, but body language experts say Kate just appeared very sad as Harry and Meghan made their final appearance as senior royals. “She was pursing her lips as if to say, ‘This doesn’t taste good,’” says Patti Wood. “And there was a lot of sadness in her eyes.” The duchess managed to put those emotions aside by the time she turned up at her next engagement, however, as she hosted a reception at Buckingham Palace to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the children’s charity Place2Be, which provides emotional support for children. Kate swapped the stylish red Catherine Walker coat dress she wore to Westminster Abbey for a stunning blue Jenny Packham gown, and dazzled as she chatted to children, parents and teachers at the event. After two school choirs…

jeanette’s legacy positive change, positive politics

Former Green Party co-leader Jeanette Fitzsimons, who died on March 5, aged 75, never set out to be an MP, let alone a trailblazer. “I was pushed into [politics],” she explained in her 2010 valedictory speech, “under that maxim of John Lennon’s ‘life is what happens to you while you’re making other plans’.” And life certainly happened for Jeanette, who before entering Parliament in 1996 was a teacher – at her old school Epsom Girls’ Grammar – and a lecturer in environmental studies and energy planning at the University of Auckland. In 1968, she and her first husband Bevin Fitzsimons moved to Geneva, Switzerland, where they lived for six years, and welcomed two sons. Her involvement in politics began in earnest when she became the Values Party energy spokesman in 1977. Nineteen years…
