vax was fun!

As the global vaccine rollout continues, it finally feels like the world can see the light at the end of the Covid tunnel. But as is evident by the devastating situation in India, every person and every country needs to have access to the vaccine. The Vax Live: The Concert to Reunite the World fundraiser last week saw Hollywood’s biggest stars gather to voice their support for the vaccine effort. Hosted by Selena Gomez, 28, it was one of the largest events in California since the pandemic began. Prince Harry, 36, made a solo appearance, the first since Prince Philip’s sad passing. His pregnant wife and co-chair of the campaign Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, 39, stayed home with their two-year-old son Archie. Ben Affleck, 48, showed off his comedy chops with the help…

from the editor

It’s been quite the time of birthdays for the youngsters in the royal family . In late April, adorable Prince Louis turned three and last week Princess Charlotte celebrated her sixth birthday , and Archie his second. The Cambridge birthdays also come as their mum and dad marked their 10th wedding anniversary and released a delightful video that provided a rare insight into their family . They all look so happy and I felt very nostalgic watching it – particularly as my daughter Madeline has just turned 18. People always told me that the hands-on parenting years would fly by and it definitely feels significant for me because she’s the youngest of my four children. She and 19-year-old Malachy still live at home while they’re studying at university (not that I…

from wild child to warrior zara shows her strength

She’s not a working royal and doesn’t have a title, but Zara Tindall’s husband Mike clearly thinks his wife is the royal family’s warrior princess. The former rugby star hailed his wife as a “warrior” for the way she gave birth to their son Lucas Philip Tindall on their bathroom floor. Zara, who recently made her first public appearance with six-week-old Lucas at an equestrian competition, had her third child at home after running out of time to get to the hospital. The Queen’s granddaughter had been having contractions through the night and so they arranged for someone to care for their older children, Mia, seven, and Lena, two. Mike explains that her labour was faster than they anticipated and Zara’s best friend Dolly Maude, who was at their home at the time,…

inspired by archie

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex has a new string to add to her bow – children’s book author. The former actress has written a picture book called The Bench, which was inspired by her husband Prince Harry and their son Archie. Meghan, 39, says the book came about after she wrote a poem for Harry on Father’s Day the month after Archie was born. It explores the special bond between father and son as seen through a mother’s eyes. Meghan says the illustrations by Christian Robinson “capture the warmth, joy and comfort of the relationship between fathers and sons from all walks of life”.

lottie’s time to shine!

It seems like hardly any time at all has passed since Kate stood on the steps of St Mary’s Hospital in London with her newborn daughter Charlotte in her arms. But the youngster, known as Lottie to her family, has just turned six and following on in the tradition Kate started with eldest son George, the proud mum has released a photo she took of her middle child to mark the occasion. In the picture, Charlotte – whose birthday was on May 2 – is sporting a big smile and longer hair than we’ve previously seen. Unlike some family snaps, which are not released for weeks or even months, the photo was taken just days before Charlotte celebrated her birthday.…
