assembling the troops!

There was a lot going on during the Trooping the Colour parade this year – including a gorgeously animated Prince Louis in his Buckingham Palace balcony debut! The Queen (93) has seen many new additions to – and sad departures from – the royal line-up, having attended the parade in every year of her reign, except for 1955 when it was cancelled due to a national rail strike. In recent years, royal watchers have been especially charmed by Her Majesty’s great-grandchildren as they made their first appearances. In 2016, Princess Charlotte’s debut was doubly special as it was also the Queen’s 90th birthday. The now four-year-old adorably covered her ears for the air force flyby, but was otherwise perfectly behaved.…

from the editor

It hasn’t been intentional, but when I take a step back fr om this issue, there’s a fair bit of talk about what makes a good relationship work. Gwyneth Paltrow thinks she’s found the key and apparently it’s to not live with your husband! Then there’s Dame Julie Walters, whose relationship has been going strong for 30 years. She says the secret to a happy marriage is simple - laughter . “Especially in times of crisis, when things aren’t so good,” she shares with the Weekly. “If you’ve got humour , it doesn’t mean you make light of it, but it puts it in its place.” And then there’s Princess Charlene, wife of Prince Albert of Monaco, who I was quite sure wouldn’t even make it down the aisle as it looked like…

bad romance irina flies the coop

After months of speculation that their relationship was hanging by a thread, The Hangover star Bradley Cooper and his model partner Irina Shayk have separated. The couple, who share a two-year-old daughter, Lea, have been together for four years, but Irina (33) was reportedly struggling with Bradley’s work commitments. “They wanted to stay together for their daughter, but neither of them are very happy,” an insider revealed. “Recently Irina decided enough is enough. She had high hopes for their future together and felt once the baby was born they would find the time to marry, but that never came to fruition. “She wanted more from Bradley in every way. But she was unhappy and felt he spent too much time working rather than focusing on his family.” Bradley (44) has publicly admitted that he wasn’t…

maternity leave meghan’s trump card

It was her first official outing since giving birth to baby Archie five weeks earlier, and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, rose to the occasion when she joined the rest of the royals at Trooping the Colour last week. Taking a break from her maternity leave, the new mum beamed and animatedly chatted as she travelled in an open-top carriage with husband Prince Harry, stepmother-in-law Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, and sister-in-law Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. By contrast, her companions looked almost underwhelmed and couldn’t match Meghan’s obvious delight to be out in public again. Camilla (71) barely cracked a smile as the carriage made its way down The Mall in London as part of the traditional parade celebrating the Queen’s official birthday. Sitting opposite Meghan, Kate (37) wore a wide smile for the crowds…

thumbs up!

Prince Louis has made his first appearance at Trooping the Colour – and promptly stole the show. The 13-month-old last week clapped and enthusiastically waved as a variety of planes, including the Red Arrows display team, flew over Buckingham Palace. Held first by mum Kate and then dad William, at one stage he waved so vigorously he nearly sent Camilla’s hat flying. And when he tried to suck his thumb, both his parents jumped in at different times to gently remove it from his mouth. For his balcony debut, Louis was dressed in blue shorts and a white embroidered shirt that was previously worn by both his dad and his uncle Harry when they were small. William donned it for a trip to Balmoral in 1984, and Harry wore it for his second…

one cool chick suzanne’s enchanting encore

She’s sung on hundreds of stages across the globe with some of the biggest names in music and even performed for royalty, but Suzanne Lynch can still vividly recall the first time she took the stage in Auckland’s Town Hall. As she steps back inside the grand historic building, the petite ‘60s singing sensation casts her mind back more than half a century when she and her sister Judy Hindman – the other half of teenage pop duo The Chicks – couldn’t even walk down Queen Street without being swamped by fans. “The first big concert we did here was with Sandie Shaw and The Pretty Things from the UK. It was a tour of New Zealand that started in the Auckland Town Hall. We did Sandie’s vocal backing and all I…
