    The Queen didn't want 'pomp and ceremony for herself' and simply wanted to be buried next to her father - 'but she recognised the role she played', according to royal experts. Her late Majesty, who died at Balmoral aged 96, was laid to rest in a moving private ceremony at Windsor's King George VI Memorial Chapel on Monday night - following a huge and prestigious public funeral at Westminster Abbey. But one royal commentator has speculated that the Queen wouldn't have wanted such a service and only agreed to it out of duty.  Royal biographer Penny Junor told People: 'She wouldn't have wanted that pomp and ceremony for herself, but she recognised the role she played... Even in death, she was still serving.'  The Queen's final resting place has been marked with a simple slab reuniting her for eternity with her adored husband Prince Philip and her parents King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother. Historian Robert Hardman, author of Queen of Our Times: The Life of Elizabeth II, said: 'She had no wish to see a statue of herself or to even...
    The nation's broadcasters were called upon once more to transmit the melancholy glory of another day in the death of our Queen. And amid the massing of the military, resplendent in their scarlet and gold, complete with ceremonial trimmings of frogging and ruff, one question burned. How many more last journeys could Elizabeth II make? 'The Queen will leave for the final time shortly,' said Anna Botting for Sky News. 'The Queen will leave Buckingham Palace for the very last time,' said Chris Ship for ITV. And even once the journey began, no one was sounding the last post for the last time. 'Now passing under the great arch for the last time, Queen Elizabeth II,' solemnly intoned the BBC's Fergal Keane, sounding for a moment as if he were reporting on the voyage of a cruise ship. The cortege left Buckingham Palace and headed east, straight towards Alastair Bruce for Sky. 'The Mall is waiting to embrace the late Queen as she comes down through this canopy of trees for the last time,' he said 'The Queen will leave...
    ST. ALBANS, England (AP) — At a distance it looked like a military flypast and Grenadier Guards trumpeting in a royal-style occasion. Only it wasn’t an extension of Queen Elizabeth II’s Jubilee celebrations but the launch of the Saudi-funded golf breakaway, attempting to bring a sense of faux regal pageantry to the rebellion splitting the sport. On a course just outside north London, the band dressed as imitation infantrymen were there to proclaim the arrival of Dustin Johnson and Phil Mickelson, two of the stars enticed from the PGA Tour to potentially earn hundreds of millions of dollars on the LIV Golf series. The nine ageing planes rumbling overhead helped to mask the lack of significant crowd noise beyond the occasional shout of “Let’s go Phil” as he prepared to tee off. At the same time, Thursday’s message from the PGA Tour was being delivered — go off. To all the golfers who defected to the renegade series, they now face banishment from future tour events. Johnson had already given up his PGA membership, but Mickelson is not...
    ALGIERS, Algeria (AP) — Algeria’s president met on Thursday with Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, who was welcomed with pomp as he visited the North African nation. Maduro arrived Wednesday evening, greeted at the Algiers airport by Algeria’s prime minister, as he began what Algeria’s state APS news agency called a two-day “working and friendship visit.” In a welcoming ceremony, Maduro and President Abdelmadjid Tebboune reviewed a detachment of the Republican Guard as the anthems of both countries’ played. There was no immediate information on topics discussed during their meeting that followed. Like all visiting leaders, Maduro paid homage to the “martyrs” of Algeria’s brutal, seven-year independence war with France, laying a wreath of flowers at the national monument to the fallen and observing a minute of silence. Maduro’s visit to Algeria follows a visit in Turkey. It comes amid a U.S. summit of the Americas in Los Angeles. Venezuela, along with Cuba and Nicaragua, were not invited by the administration of President Joe Biden due to the problems with democracy and human rights in those countries. That led to...
    LONDON -- Four days of celebrations honoring Queen Elizabeth II's 70 years on the throne got underway Thursday with a display of British military traditions stretching from the days of horse and cannon to the jet age.Formal celebrations for the Platinum Jubilee began with Trooping the Color, an annual military review that has marked the sovereign's official birthday since 1760. The queen is expected to join the working members of her family on the balcony of Buckingham Palace at the end of the event, when 70 aircraft are set to roar overhead.The jubilee is being commemorated with a four-day holiday weekend. The celebration of Elizabeth's reign includes a service of thanksgiving Friday at St. Paul's Cathedral in London, a concert at Buckingham Palace on Saturday and a pageant staged by thousands of performers drawn from schools and community groups around the country on Sunday afternoon. Cavalrymen ride their horses along The Mall during the Trooping the Color in London, Wednesday, June 2, 2022, on the first of 4 days of celebrations to mark the Platinum Jubilee.

    HRH Prince Charles has delivered the Queen’s Speech for the first time, standing in for his mother who, at 96 years of age, has missed the state event for the first time in 59 years. The state opening of parliament, at which what is called the ‘Queen’s Speech’ is delivered by the monarch, is an important part of the British constitution: an occasion where common members of Parliament (MPs), members of the House of Lords, and the Monarchy gather. While the Queen’s Speech is generally delivered by the monarch, it is really the government’s address, a list of their plans and priorities for the coming months written for the monarch to read aloud. As such, the speech essentially resembles a bullet-point list of plans, elaborated upon in only the briefest detail. Prince Charles, Queen Elizabeth II’s son and the heir to the throne gave the speech for the first time today, deputising for the Queen herself who is said to be unable to fulfil the duty physically because of mobility issues. As part of the tradition of the day, Yeomen...
    LONDON (AP) — Britain’s Parliament opens a new year-long session on Tuesday with a mix of royal pomp and raw politics, as Prime Minister Boris Johnson tries to re-energize his scandal-tarnished administration and address the U.K.’s worsening cost-of-living crisis. Johnson’s Conservative government will set out the laws it plans to pass in the coming year at the tradition-steeped State Opening of Parliament. The ceremony will take place without 96-year-old Queen Elizabeth II, who has pulled out of the ceremony because of her mobility issues. Instead her son and heir, Prince Charles, will read the Queen’s Speech, which is written by the government but traditionally read out by the monarch. Prince William, who is second in line to the throne, will also attend. The queen has only missed two previous state openings during her 70-year reign, in 1959 and 1963, when she was pregnant with sons Andrew and Edward, respectively. The speech will contain 38 pieces of legislation, including bills on education, animal welfare and “levelling up” economic opportunity to poorer regions. The speech will promise to cut red tape...
    TOKYO (AP) — The 2020 Olympics officially opened Friday with a barrage of fireworks, nods to Japan’s history and culture, and a mesmerizing drone display over Tokyo’s night sky. And, of course, without fans there to see it. The pomp of these games is unlikely to escape its circumstance — namely, that the quadrennial event is being staged a year late, in front of empty grandstands, against the will of many in Japan and at the risk of infection for those involved. Athletes paraded into Tokyo’s National Stadium on Friday night, cheered only by competitors or by the performers lining their route. Hard to find familiar faces beneath all their facemasks, but shirtless, glistening Pita Taufatofua stood out again while carrying Tonga’s flag for the third time. Fireworks erupted off the arena’s roof and music blared from its loudspeakers, but the tone for much of the ceremony was somber, including during an opening number when performers mimicked athletes training in isolation. The mood lightened later, including for jazz pianist Hiromi’s dazzling fast fingers. Tennis star Naomi Osaka concluded the ceremony...
    Life at the White House has been a major adjustment in many ways for the Bidens — but one thing that the President and First Lady miss most are their romantic getaways. In Vogue's cover story this month, President Joe, 78, and Dr. Jill Biden, 70, open up about their marriage, with the pair admitting that they are both 'so busy' these days that it makes it harder to spend one-on-one time together. 'I miss her,' Joe said, revealing that when they lived in Delaware, they'd 'make sure we had a romantic time to just get away and hang out with each other' by staying at a local bed and breakfast — but they can no longer 'just go off like we used to.' Adjusting: President Joe and Dr. Jill Biden revealed how their marriage has changed since moving into the White House in a new Vogue interview Remember when?

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — It’s graduation season, and this year, students are thankful to celebrate their achievements in an almost normal atmosphere. One public school in Washington Heights has overcome some tough odds and beat the average, as they hand out their diplomas. READ MORE: NYPD Hosts Block Party In Same Mount Eden Neighborhood Where Children Were Caught In Middle Of Gunfire It’s a proud day at the Community Health Academy of the Heights. “We have the highest graduation rate we ever had,” Principal David Falciani told CBS2’s Jessica Moore. Ninety percent of Falciani’s senior class is graduating. That’s higher than the New York City high school average of about 79%. “We are having conversations about your vision, your health, your housing, your food security or insecurity,” Falciani said. Wednesday, 80 seniors were set to attend an in-person, slightly unorthodox graduation, being held in small group ceremonies throughout the day. The Washington Heights public school serves grades 6-12, with most kids coming from the immediate area. Many, like graduating senior Jennifer Angel, are the first in their family to go...
    The Queen will host US President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden for tea at Windsor Castle this Sunday following the G7 summit, royal officials confirmed today. The 95-year-old monarch will welcome Mr Biden, who will be the 13th serving US president she has formally received, and his wife at the dais in the quadrangle. A Guard of Honour will be formed of the Queen's Company First Battalion Grenadier Guards, who will give a Royal Salute, and the US National Anthem will be played. Mr Biden will then accompany the Officer Commanding the Guard of Honour, Major James Taylor, and Major General Christopher Ghika, to inspect the Guard of Honour. The President will then return to the dais to watch the military march past alongside The Queen and his wife. The Bidens will then join the Queen for tea in the castle.  US President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden arrive on Air Force One at RAF Mildenhall in Suffolk yesterday ahead of the G7 summit in Cornwall The Queen, pictured in the gardens of Windsor...
    ABC Matt and Rachael on the 'Bachelor' finale. As the premiere of “The Bachelorette” kicks off on Monday, June 7, 2021, fans of the franchise might find themselves wondering if former “Bachelor” Matt James and his season pick — Rachael Kirkconnell — are still together. The simple answer to that question is yes. However, it has been quite the journey for the couple, who broke up shortly after the show wrapped. Reality Steve was first to reveal that Matt and Rachael had parted ways, which they both confirmed on the “After the Final Rose” special that aired after the “Bachelor” finale. However, a few weeks later, Kirkconnell was spotted in New York City, and word got out that she was with James. Photos of the two surfaced on social media, and rumors that they had reconciled started circulating. And then, there was another speed bump. Reality Steve got some intel that James had been talking to Kirkconnell — and to another woman named Grace. That woman came forward and even chatted with Steve on an Instagram Live, according...
    ABC Rachael Kirkconnell. Rachael Kirkconnell’s Instagram account appeared to be wiped clean on Thursday, May 27, 2021, with fans wondering if the reality star decided to take a break from social media. However, “The Bachelor” star’s account appeared to be up and running again — with all of her posts intact — several hours later. Rachael took to her Instagram Stories on Thursday afternoon to share a video of herself taking a sip of what appeared to be an iced tea from a straw and looking purposely unamused. “Woke up to no Instagram this am. Secure your accounts kids,” she wrote on the video. Many fans were wondering if Rachael had deleted her account or if something happened, but it appears as though Instagram may have locked Rachael’s account due to someone trying to hack it. It is presumed that by “secure your account,” Rachael meant that people should make sure they have strong passwords, and that their accounts are safeguarded against hackers or other unwanted spammers. Rachael’s Instagram issues come on the heels of confirmation that she...
    ABC Matt James and Rachael Kirkconnell. Former star of “The Bachelor” Matt James is speaking out about what made him settle down with Rachael Kirkconnell weeks after his season of the popular reality dating show ended. During an appearance on Anthony Pompliano’s podcast called “The Pomp,” Matt opened up about his time on “The Bachelor” — and his relationship after “The Bachelor.” Matt gave the interview with Rachael in the same room as him, though she didn’t appear on the podcast. To kick things off, Matt was asked why he decided to do “The Bachelor.” “I’d never given myself a chance to explore what a relationship looked like, so when the opportunity presented itself, it was something that I entertained initially and then my roommate’s [Tyler Cameron] mom really pushed me,” Matt said. He went on to talk about how his relationship with Rachael has progressed, confirming that the two are giving things another go — and that things are good between them.

    Cheers to these leading ladies in spirits. Woman-owned spirits brands continue to shake up the historically male-dominated alcohol industry with refreshing takes on gin, vodka and bourbon. Constellation Brands in 2018 launched the first-ever venture fund devoted to investing in female-founded alcohol companies. The glass is less than half empty in the industry with just 16% of C-suite level executives in the food and beverage manufacturing industry are women, according to a 2019 report by McKinsey & Company. Here are some female-helmed spirits to sip and support ahead of Mother’s Day. Pomp & Whimsy Gin LiqueurThis Los Angeles-based gin liquor brand is reinventing the botanical-forward spirit that’s been nicknamed Mother Gin. Founder Dr. Nicola Nice was determined to reclaim the spirit --  that was advertised as "Mother's Ruin" during the gin craze in the 1700s. Back in the colonial period, the spirit was blamed for higher crime, lower birth rates and associating women gin drinkers with neglecting their children. This brand is a celebration of women who love the spirit.  Pomp & Whimsy (750 ml/30% ) infuses classically distilled gin with a flavorful botanical liqueur...
    MSNBC anchor Brian Williams urged viewers to sympathize for President Joe Biden ahead of his joint congressional address Wednesday because he was "robbed of so much of the majesty and pomp" typically attached to the office due to the coronavirus pandemic. LIVE UPDATES: BIDEN GIVES FIRST ADDRESS BEFORE CONGRESS As Biden made his way into a sparse House chamber for his first marquee event before Congress, Williams noted the smaller audience size -- 200, instead of the usual 1,600 -- and showered the president with praise for avoiding "terms of victimization" despite the scaled-down nature of the event.  "Something to think about, when we see Joe Biden come down this aisle, 36-year veteran of the Senate, but so far, because of the pandemic, and he has never used terms of victimization, he has been robbed of so much of the majesty and pomp of the job," Williams said.  "Campaign stops. Convention speech. After he won, giving his acceptance in a parking lot, in Wilmington. An inaugural address before an empty mall in Washington DC. These are the representatives...It is vast. They are sparse. But that is the nature of what we’re doing," he added.  NBC's Lester...

    MANCHESTER UNITED have to sign a striker at the end of the season, according to their former midfielder Mark Hughes. The Welshman also reckons Edinson Cavani of five years ago would have been the perfect solution. 5Mark Hughes urged his old club Man Utd to sign a strikerCredit: PA:Press Association 5Edinson Cavani could leave United in the summerCredit: Getty Images - Getty Jamie Carragher issued a stark warning to the Red Devils saying they 'lack quality up front' and 'need a centre-forward more than anything'. In the aftermath of Carragher's comments, SunSport revealed five strikers United could sign this summer including Harry Kane and Erling Haaland. And Hughes agrees that something needs to be done. He told Sky Sports: "United have got good quality at the top end of the pitch. "Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood are highly thought of, but maybe they need Cavani five years ago when he was in his pomp. "They probably got him at the wrong time, but he is still an outstanding centre forward. "When I see him playing in this team I...
    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — While many members of the British Royal Family have come to the San Francisco Bay Area over the years, it was the visits of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles in the 1970s and 1980s that drew the most attention. The 1983 and 1977 visits were filled with pomp and ceremony but San Francisco’s large Irish-American population also made sure the royals knew how displeased they were with the conflict in Northern Ireland. READ MORE: Royals Week: Recent San Francisco Bay Area Visits – A Combination Of Pomp And Protest On November 4, 1965, Princess Margaret, her husband Lord Snowdon, and her spectacular collection of gowns, jewels, and hats all paid a visit to the San Francisco Bay Area.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden’s first bilateral meeting with Canada’s Justin Trudeau since taking office was high on policy, low on pomp and featured a very large swipe at Biden’s predecessor as the coronavirus forced the two leaders to convene virtually Tuesday rather than gathering with customary Oval Office fanfare. The two leaders — Biden in the Roosevelt Room at the White House and Trudeau in the prime minister’s office in Ottawa — delivered friendly opening remarks in front of the media, with flags from both countries on display at both ends of the long-distance conversation. “The United States has no closer friend, no closer friend, than Canada,” Biden said. Trudeau, in turn, commended Biden for quickly rejoining the Paris climate accord, a worldwide pact to curb climate emissions that President Donald Trump walked away from early in his term. The prime minister, who had a frosty relationship with Trump at times, worked in a jab at Trump as he praised Biden. “U.S. leadership has been sorely missed over the past years,” Trudeau said. “And I have to say...
    By AAMER MADHANI and ROB GILLIES, Associated Press The coronavirus pandemic is forcing President Joe Biden to alter another first for his administration: the typically formal White House meeting with a foreign counterpart. Biden will play host to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Tuesday for the first bilateral meeting of his presidency, but he will do it virtually. In pre-pandemic times, such a meeting would have been held with fanfare: Biden welcoming the Canadian prime minister with great pomp upon his arrival, an Oval Office talk between the two leaders, a joint news conference and perhaps a luncheon. But with both leaders stressing caution to their citizens, Biden and Trudeau are foregoing the typical protocol and holding their talks by video conference. U.S. presidents traditionally invite the Canadian prime minister for their first meeting with a world leader. White House officials said that they are still trying to offer a touch of stagecraft for the meeting. The two leaders — Biden in the Oval Office in Washington and Trudeau in the prime minister's office in Ottawa — will first...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Hours from inauguration, President-elect Joe Biden paused on what might have been his triumphal entrance to Washington Tuesday evening to mark instead the national tragedy of the coronavirus pandemic with a moment of collective grief for Americans lost. His arrival coincided with the awful news that the U.S. death toll had surpassed 400,000 in the worst public health crisis in more than a century — a crisis Biden will now be charged with controlling. “To heal we must remember,” the incoming president told the nation at a sunset ceremony at the Lincoln Memorial. Four hundred lights representing the pandemic’s victims were illuminated behind him around the monument’s Reflecting Pool. “Between sundown and dusk, let us shine the lights into the darkness … and remember all who we lost,” Biden said. The sober moment on the eve of Biden’s inauguration — typically a celebratory time in Washington when the nation marks the democratic tradition of a peaceful transfer of power — was a measure of the enormity of loss for the nation. During his brief remarks, Biden faced...
    STOCKTON (CBS13) – Emotions were running high for stylists like Chelsey Kiefer as hair salons remain on the cutting room floor unable to reopen under the stay-at-home order. “I’m just so tapped out of the highs and the lows of this emotional rollercoaster that Gavin Newsom has put us on,” said Kiefer, a stylist at Pomp Studio Hair Salon. Supporters of the barbershop and nail salon industry gathered at Pomp Salon in Stockton on Thursday to stand in solidarity with the business and others struggling with the closures. Fred Jones, a member of the Professional Beauty Federation of California, along with San Joaquin County Supervisor Tom Patti, other state lawmakers and salon industry members were in attendance. Pomp Salon’s situation went viral after a video surfaced of two stylists arguing with state officers from the barbering and cosmetology board that cited them for violating the latest health order. These industry supporters said available data and science aren’t supporting the closure of their businesses. They also said that on Tuesday, the San Joaquin County public health officer had stated that not...
    A California hair salon that was raided by enforcement division officers with the state's Department of Consumer Affairs on Dec. 23 will not be charged with violations relating to coronavirus restrictions. The San Joaquin County District Attorney's Office said on Monday that it will not pursue any charges against Vicki Kirk and Dino Ballin, the owners of Stockton's Pomp Hair Salon. “The Department of Consumer Affairs took it upon their own initiative to do a surprise raid on Pomp Salon in Lincoln Center on December 23rd,” read a statement from the district attorney's office. The district attorney's office said neither it nor local law enforcement had prior knowledge of the visit, which Kirk described similar to a "drug raid," and that as such, the office will not pursue charges against the owners. Pomp Hair Salon was open in violation of the state's COVID-19 restrictions, which prompted the visit from enforcement officers. “I just want to earn a living, and we all want to do it safely,” Kirk said. “We have strict safety protocols here, and...
    By Simon Johnson STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Spare a thought for this year's Nobel Prize winners. Gone are the ball gowns, white tie and tails, concerts, banquets and adulation that come with arguably the world's most coveted awards. With the coronavirus pandemic tearing through Europe, celebrations this year will be modest and remote. Instead of wining and dining in Stockholm and Oslo later this month, in many cases winners will receive their award in their home country at an agreed venue from a Swedish diplomat. The number of guests will depend on local restrictions, and plans are still subject to change given the unpredictability of the virus. "We...will make sure that the laureates receive their medals and diplomas in one way or the other, if the situation changes," said Rebecka Oxelstrom, spokeswoman for the Nobel Foundation, which overseas the prizes. The low-key celebrations will matter to some laureates more than others. Reinhard Genzel, the German astrophysicist who shared the physics prize this year with Britain's Roger Penrose and American Andrea Ghez for discoveries about black holes, was not losing too much...

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — A NASCAR race is far more than 500 miles of left turns. It’s a turbo-charged Mardi Gras of booze-soaked infield campsites, concerts, fireworks and patriotic displays. Entertainers give the command to start engines. Political candidates show up. Some of the world’s top CEOs sit in on the drivers meetings, then stroll down pit lane to mingle. Fans can get the same kind of oh-so-close access at tracks. There is no other sport that offers the same pipeline to its stars or the action – teams can and do give spots on their pit stand to honorary guests ranging from friends, family or corporate partners – and it’s a critical cog in how NASCAR does business and what draws people to the races. This was all before the pandemic, of course. NASCAR cut every bit of its pageantry from race weekends when it resumed competition in May. The party has been put on pause and it will be most noticeable over the next 10 weeks of the NASCAR playoffs, the most important stretch of the season. “It’s...
    BADAJOZ, Spain (AP) — The leaders of Spain and Portugal marked the reopening of their land border Wednesday, more than three months after shutting it because of the coronavirus pandemic. Spain’s King Felipe VI and Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez met with Portuguese President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa and Prime Minister António Costa for border ceremonies in Badajoz on the Spanish side and later in Elvas, Portugal. Wearing masks, which they removed to hear their national anthems played, the Iberian leaders toured a Moorish fortress and museum in Badajoz before visiting a 14th-century castle in Elvas, 20 kilometers (12 miles) away. They gave no speeches. Spain has been one of Europe’s hardest-hit countries in the pandemic, with almost 250,000 cases and more than 28,300 deaths. A strict lockdown enabled Spanish authorities to bring the outbreak under control. Over the past week it has officially recorded almost 2,000 new cases. Portugal avoided an exponential increase in cases during April and May, but stubborn outbreaks have occurred in recent weeks after a lockdown ended and several hundred news cases have been emerging every...
