the mystery of the missing crown

The Queen (93) made a right royal entrance at London’s State Opening of Parliament. The monarch was escorted by Prince Charles (70), and both donned suitably regal regalia. Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall (72), trailed along in support. The annual ceremony is steeped in history, but the Queen broke with tradition by not wearing the Imperial State Crown, possibly because it weighs about 1kg. Instead, the George IV State Diadem graced the royal head and the crown graced a cushion, which was placed beside her. While the crown boasts 2868 diamonds, 269 pearls, 17 sapphires, 11 emeralds and four rubies, the lighter diadem has a mere 1333 diamonds and 170 pearls.…

from the editor

Some weeks we can easily sum up all the royal goings-on in a single page – other weeks I feel as though we need an extra magazine to cram it all in! This was certainly one of those latter weeks. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been just magnificent in Pakistan, and I’ve loved hearing all the behind-the-scenes details from our royal correspondent. It’s a great read on page six about what life is really like now for Prince William and Kate, who seem to have hit their stride in their royal roles. Likewise, Prince Harry , too, is treading his own path with a greater sense of ownership. He’s long held a unique ability amongst the royals to be emotionally vulnerable with the public. And the new dad didn’t shy…

firm changes the real purpose of the pakistan tour

When it comes to the royal family, it’s often the tiny details that hint at who’s where in the hierarchy. Take the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s tour of Pakistan, for instance. Until now, only the Queen (93) and Charles, Prince of Wales, have brought a doctor with them when they travel abroad, in case the monarch or heir need special medical attention. Now, Prince William and Kate (37) have joined this elite, signalling their inexorable rise up the regal pecking order. “The palace insisted,” says one of their circle. “If he’s essentially acting on behalf of the Queen, he needs to be given the same privileges and protections. They’ll have a medic with them now every time they travel.” But William (37) is his own man, with down-to-earth views akin to those of…

harry wells up!

Meanwhile, back in the UK, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped out for their first joint engagement since their tour of Africa last month, attending the WellChild Awards. It proved to be an emotional evening for the pair, who met up with the winners before the ceremony, which honours children and their families who live with serious health needs. Meghan, who was at the event for the second year running, chatted with the families, telling one girl and her mother, “I just took Archie for his first [playgroup] class. It was a lot of fun. He loved it.” Meghan also told another family that little Archie does indeed have red hair. “You can see it in his eyebrows,” she revealed. As excited as his wife was, it was Prince Harry who got…

james’ battle royale from helpless to hopeful!

The ring is sparkling on his fiancée’s finger. Any day now the wedding date will be set. And James Middleton can’t stop pinching himself. At the start of last year, the brother of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, was in such a dark place emotionally that suicide was never far from his thoughts. In his pit of despair, he couldn’t face his family, let alone forge new relationships. The fact that he’s found a way through the labyrinth of depression and is now head-over-heels in love is a miracle – and not one that he will ever take for granted. “I am on the other side,” says James (32). “It’s like a rebirth… and now there’s a feeling that I can take on anything.” As the Weekly recently reported, James popped the question to his…

ready to bloom at 50 i feel incredible

She may not have had a love that’s lasted, but Jennifer Aniston rejects the suggestion that she’s crying herself to sleep over it. In fact, the Friends actress flatly dismisses the often repeated rumours “that there’s some level of unhappiness in my life, due to the fact that I don’t have a storybook moment at this stage”. It’s simply not true, she says, adding that she uses comedy to help her cope in tougher times. “We all experience pain. Everyone does. For me, I always go to humour to brighten up the moment.” Looking back on her acting choices, comedy does seem to be Jen’s comfort zone, though she’ll be stepping away from her roots with her new series The Morning Show (streaming here on the new Apple TV+ service from November 2), in…
