sharon’s fanfare

To mark the 40th anniversary of the first case of AIDS reported in the US, actress Sharon Stone gathered with other AIDS activists to break ground on a new memorial. Stories: The AIDS Monument in West Hollywood will honour those who lost their lives to the virus and the people who fought for research and treatments. Sharon has been an ambassador for the AIDS foundation amfAR since 1995 and raised millions of dollars for the charity – once making a record $48 million at a single event. The 63-year-old became emotional as she reflected on her work over the years. “The main thing I learned from being an AIDS worker was that it wasn’t just about AIDS. It’s about looking at the person next to you and accepting them no matter what.…

Royal baby news is always a delight for the team here at the Weekly . Last Monday , my phone lit up with messages making sure I’d hear d about the wonderful news of the arrival of Lilibet Diana, the daughter of Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex. The couple, who famously stepped down as senior royals, welcomed their little girl on June 4 and while we are yet to see a photo, it is her name that has struck a chord with many . While the reference to Diana doesn’t need any explanation, as many know , our Queen was affectionately called Lilibet after she struggled to pronounce her own name when she was a little girl – and now her namesake will live on in her great-granddaughter .

harry’s gran gesture! welcome little lilibet

The birth of a royal baby is always cause for celebration – and the arrival of little Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor is no exception. Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex’s daughter arrived on Friday, June 4, weighing a healthy 3.2kg (or 7lb 11oz – 8oz more than her big brother Archie). Meghan gave birth at the exclusive Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital, near the couple’s home in Montecito, California, making the baby, who will be known as Lili, a dual citizen both of America and the UK. The Queen’s 11th great-grandchild and eighth in line to the throne, like her big brother, she won’t have a royal title, although she could become a princess when Charles becomes king. Announcing Lili’s birth, the joyful parents said, “She is more than we could have ever…

lilibet the 1st

Lilibet is a sweet nickname that came from the Queen herself. As a youngster, she struggled to pronounce her name properly, and instead of Elizabeth, it came out as Lilibet. Her parents, George VI and Queen Elizabeth, grandparents George V and Queen Mary, and younger sister Princess Margaret all called her by the name, and her father once famously said, “Lilibet is my pride. Margaret is my joy.” The young princess embraced the term of endearment and as a child would sign notes to her loved ones, “Lilibet”. But after her parents and sister passed away, the only person to call her that was her husband, Prince Philip. It wasn’t his only affectionate term for her – he was also heard to refer to her as “cabbage” on occasion – but because of…

baby in the book!

Meghan’s first book for children, called The Bench, was published last week, and is the story of a bond between a father and son as seen through a mother’s eyes, and was based on Meghan’s observations of Harry with Archie in the first month of her son’s life. It features a drawing of a red-headed boy and his father, presumably Archie and his dad, and in a sweet conclusion on the final page, a dark-haired woman with a baby in a wrap carrier across her chest.…

royal style

It’s one of the most famous bridal gowns in history. Now, 40 years after Princess Diana wore the stunning ivory silk taffeta and antique lace dress for her wedding to Prince Charles at St Paul’s Cathedral, members of the public can view it up close. Her sons William and Harry have loaned it to an exhibition, called Royal Style in the Making, that opened last week at Kensington Palace. Designed by Elizabeth and David Emmanuel for the wedding held on July 29, 1981, the gown included a 7.6m sequin-encrusted train, which filled the aisle of the cathedral. Traditional in style, the dress included a nod to ’80s fashion, such as deep ruffles and puffed sleeves trimmed with bows. Also on display are several other of her gowns, including a peach-coloured dress and jacket worn…
