a brits of alright!

Stars and NHS workers gathered in the O2 Arena in London last week for a Brit Awards filled with girl power! Coldyplay opened the show performing from a barge in the River Thames, before music legend Sir Elton John, 74, wowed the audience with the help of Olly Alexander, 30, for a revamped rendition of the Pet Shop Boys hit It’s a Sin. Then Dua Lipa, 25, sang a medley of her hits and proved just why she won Best British Female and Best British Album. Despite the UK’s love for pop groups, Little Mix’s win for Best British Group is the first time a girl group has won the award. Leigh-Anne Pinnock, 29, along with bandmates Perrie Edwards, 27, and Jade Thirlwall, 28, used the opportunity to speak out against the…

from the editor

In our Mother’s Day issue, I mentioned that I wouldn’ t be seeing my mum this year as she is in Australia. But last week, I thought, why not just go? And so I booked tickets and my husband and I travelled across the ditch. Going to the airport was a strange experience, but there were tears as I saw my parents, siblings and nephews again for the first time since late 2019. It was incredibly special to be able to hug and spend a couple of days with them, something I am very grateful for because I know many families are still separated. Mum has taken up a new hobby – online shopping! Knowing I love old books, she ordered some for me. I inhaled their musty scent as I…

duty before grief the queen’s courageous return

She’s only recently lost the love of her life, the man who had been by her side for 74 years of marriage. So, the Queen could be forgiven for taking an extended period of time to mourn the sad loss of her husband Prince Philip, who she described as “her rock”. But the monarch’s unwavering dedication to duty means she wasn’t going to miss an important state occasion, even if her grief is still raw. Last week, Her Majesty put aside her own feelings to attend her first public engagement, the State Opening of Parliament, even though it has only been five weeks since Philip passed away, aged 99, at Windsor Castle. She cut a lonely figure as she sat on the throne in the House of Lords to read her keynote speech,…

a plea for change

She couldn’t make the Vax Live concert due to her advanced pregnancy, but Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, made sure she used her voice to highlight how women have been disproportionally affected by the pandemic and the shutdowns it has caused. In a recorded message played at the show, of which she and husband Prince Harry were co-chairs, she said, “Women, and especially women of colour, have seen a generation of economic gain wiped out… 47 more million women around the world are expected to slip into extreme poverty. “My husband and I are thrilled to be soon welcoming a daughter. When we think of her, we think of all the young women and girls around the globe who must be given the ability and support to lead us forward.” Meghan, 39, recorded the…

putin on airs!

Meghan has unwittingly played a part in the Queen’s cousin Prince Michael of Kent being exposed for apparently trying to trade on his links to Russian president Vladimir Putin. The Sunday Times newspaper and Dispatches current affairs TV show joined forces to investigate the 78-year-old royal after Meghan drew attention to whether members of the royal family were cashing in on their connection to the Queen as part of her privacy court case against a British newspaper publisher. Meghan’s lawyers said she and Harry should be able to earn money from jobs outside the royal family without having to give up their official duties and as other family members, including Michael, did. Undercover journalists posed as executives who held a Zoom meeting with Michael, pretending that they wanted him to use his contacts with…

covid munchies gwyneth lets go!

She might be a self-appointed health guru, but Gwyneth Paltrow hit the bottle during the pandemic. “I was drinking seven nights a week and making pasta and eating bread,” the Goop founder reveals to Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show. “I went totally off the rails. I mean, who drinks multiple drinks seven nights a week? “That’s not healthy. I love whiskey and I make this fantastic drink called the Buster Paltrow, which I named after my grandfather who loved whiskey sours. And it’s this great quinoa whiskey from a distillery in Tennessee with maple syrup and lemon juice. It’s just heaven. I would have two of those every night of quarantine.” The mother-of-two, 48, has previously ‘fessed up to leaning heavily on “wine, pasta, biscuits and cheese” to see her through the…
