lorde’s popularity mushrooms!

Solar Power singer Lorde sent a buzz of melodrama along the red carpet in Los Angeles last week, shimmering in a lilac Rodarte gown decorated with an array of colourful mushrooms! The Kiwi songstress was one of five trailblazing women honoured at the Variety Power of Women event for their philanthropic work. The Royals hitmaker, 24, was recognised for her efforts with climate change movement 350 Aotearoa, and she shared the honours with, among others, Roar singer Katy Perry and poet Amanda Gorman, 23. Katy, 36, was honoured for her Firework Foundation aimed at inspiring children through the arts, and the mum-of-one arrived at the Beverly Hills event with fiancé Orlando Bloom, 44, on her arm. Angelina Jolie, 46, meanwhile, joined the celebrations in support of Amanda, who was recognised for her creative writing…

Welcome to the seventh issue the Weekly team has pulled together from our homes in Auckland! I want to thank them all for their amazing efforts as they work from make-shift spaces, whether a desk in the bedroom or at the dining room table. Some are looking after children, others dealing with troublesome wifi, but they are dedicated to bringing you stories, entertainment and inspiration each week. In this issue. you’ll find some tips for adding a pop of spring colour to your home on page 58, and our recipes are fresh and delicious. I think I might give the New York cheesecake a whirl. Elsewhere, we sit down for a cuppa with acting royalty Miranda Harcourt, who reveals her secret passion for doll’s houses, and the Great Kiwi Bake…

onto greener pastures dame judi’s second act

Search online for the words “Dame Judi Dench” and “trees”, and there is a veritable forest of words written about her passion for them, alongside photographs of her stroking bark and even listening, with a sort of ear trumpet, to the sounds they make. Also a staunch monarchist, it was hardly surprising therefore that Dame Judi was given the honour of offi cially kicking off the Chelsea Flower Show, which includes major exhibits to mark the Queen’s platinum jubilee and highlight the climate crisis. Dame Judi, who said the show looked “as always, immaculate”, cut a garland at the Royal Horticultural Society event, held for the first time in autumn rather than spring this year because of Covid, to formally open the Queen’s Green Canopy Garden. It is the largest plot at the…

the wrap up...

Britney VICTORIOUS After 13 years under her father’s control, Britney Spears is finally free! Last week judge Brenda J. Penny offi cially suspended Jamie Spears, 69, from his role as conservator over Britney’s estate, saying, “The current situation is untenable. It reflects a toxic environment which requires the suspension of James Spears.” Effective immediately, he will be replaced by John Zabel, an accountant who was personally selected by Britney’s legal team. Journalist Pandora Sykes, who hosts the Pieces of Britney podcast, says that it is the best possible outcome for Britney’s team because it allows them to investigate Jamie’s alleged misdeeds. “If it had been terminated there wouldn’t be any opportunity for Britney’s team to gain access to Jamie’s correspondence. By suspending him, they can look into all of this before they then hopefully move…

royals go wild duke & duchess do little

It seems that when it comes to their royal duties, Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge will have a go at almost anything. And on their whirlwind visit to Northern Ireland last week, that included getting up close and personal with a snake and a whopper of a spider. Fearless Kate, 39, cupped a huge tarantula in her hands without appearing to even break a sweat when the couple called in at a petting zoo at Ulster University in Derry-Londonderry. The duchess asked to hold it after spotting it in a cage, and chuckled when she was told its name was Charlotte. Her daughter Charlotte is a fan of spiders, as she told David Attenborough in a video clip, and she and Kate often go on spider hunts in the…

courageous queen carry on digging

Six months after losing the man she called “my rock”, the Queen has spoken for the first time about her late husband Prince Philip. During the opening ceremony of the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh, Her Majesty referenced her husband, who died in April aged 99, in her address. “I have spoken before of my deep and abiding affection for this wonderful country, and of the many happy memories Prince Philip and I always held of our time here,” she shared. “It is often said that it is the people that make a place and there are few places where this is truer than in Scotland, as we have seen in recent times.” Looking smart in a stylish green coat and matching hat, the Queen was accompanied to the ceremony by a kilt-wearing Prince Charles,…
