Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge (37) and Princess Charlotte looked both adorable and cosy in matching mother/daughter blue puffer jackets on a royal family day out with the Tindalls. Prince William (36) and his cousin Zara (37) share a close bond, and it looks as though their kids enjoy spending time with each other too! Prince George (5), Mia (5) and Charlotte (3) duked it out on the dodgem cars and crossed swords at the funfair, with George even enjoying a shoulder ride from Mike (40) at the Burnham horse trials and funfair in Norfolk.…

bucking tradition birthing baby sussex their way

The royal couple want to savour as much family time with their new arrival as possible. When Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, married into the royal family, she had to relinquish control over many aspects of her life and follow certain protocols, whether she liked it or not.But now, when it comes to one of the most important experiences she’ll ever have – giving birth – Meghan is putting her foot down and doing things her way.With the full support of her doting husband Prince Harry, the mum-to-be has decided to turn her back on traditions followed by other royal mums, such as Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, and the late Diana, Princess of Wales.

the amal effect

When it comes to making decisions around the birth of her baby, it is not sister-in-law Kate that Meghan has turned to for advice and ideas, but close friend Amal Clooney.Human rights lawyer Amal and her husband, actor George Clooney, became parents to twins Ella and Alexander in 2017, and it is their lead that the duke and duchess seem to be following.Amal gave birth at the Kensington Wing, which Meghan favours over the Lindo Wing where Kate had her children.

Royal weddings are like buses. You wait for ages and then three come along in quick succession.If reports are true – and nobody has denied them – then later this year or early next, Princess Beatrice will marry, following what by royal standards is a whirlwind romance, with 35-year-old Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, or Edo to his friends.In some ways, this son of an Italian count is the perfect choice – rich and one of those Europeans who is more English than the English. He was educated at Radley, a posh private school in Oxfordshire, and completed a master’s degree in politics at Edinburgh.In other ways, he bucks social convention big-time. He has a two-year-old son, Christopher ‘Woolfie’ Woolf, with Chinese-American architect Dara Huang. Edo and Dara were engaged and…

from countess to chaperone elizabeth’s change of fortune

Portraying characters from another era is something Elizabeth McGovern does exceptionally well. She earned an Oscar nomination for her part in Ragtime, a movie set at the turn of the last century, and found global fame starring in period drama Downton Abbey as Cora, Countess of Grantham.Now, her latest movie The Chaperone, which she produced herself as well as starring as the title character, is also set in the Roaring Twenties.But the fact she’s ended up in films and TV shows that portray this long-ago era is a complete fluke, says Elizabeth (57). “I just love good stories and it has been coincidental that the stories I am closely associated with happen to be period pieces. It’s not that I love doing period pieces per se, but I love…
