According to Judi, the monarch 'radiated pride and confidence' during the emotional speech, which was recorded from the Buckingham Palace Blue Drawing Room.  She added that Charles spoke with both the vulnerability of a loving son when he addressed his late mother during the speech, but also the poise of a new King when speaking to the nation.

    Dear Amy: My fiance and I are expecting our first child next month. During a visit three months ago, his mother declared that she would be present for the birth. At that point we hadn’t even discussed the baby’s delivery, let alone visitors at home or at the hospital. We agreed to this, but now I’m resentful of her declaration and also stressed over the idea of his large family being with us during those early days. I don’t like to be crowded when I’m stressed, and he has a large and tight-knit family. I know they want to welcome our daughter into the world and to help out, but I’m not looking forward to it. I want to breastfeed in private and bond with my new family without people breathing down my neck. I thought I could compromise by stipulating that adults are welcome, but the young children are not. I told this to an older friend, who said I was being selfish to exclude the children and that they would resent this for years to come. Related Articles...
    The January 6 committee showed an image of former President Donald Trump standing in the Oval Office after the Ellipse rally on January 6 - before moving into the dining room where he watched the Capitol riot play out on TV for more than three hours.  Thursday night's primetime hearing was dedicated to the 187 minutes between Trump wrapping up his remarks on the Ellipse - where he goaded supporters to match on the Capitol - until his tepid video statement asking them to go home.  Committee members noted how there were no photos of Trump as he sat watching Fox News Channel in the White House dining room for more than three hours, nor were there entries on an official call log of White House diary.  What witnesses did tell committee members was that White House officials, including Ivanka Trump and Counsel Pat Cipollone, urged the president to make a statement to supporters to stop the attack.  Inside the Capitol, members of Vice President Mike Pence's security detail were so worried about the escalating violence that they were making 'personal call's...
    Hunter Biden's ex-wife Kathleen was excluded from Secret Service protection during their marriage while Joe Biden was vice president, she claims in her upcoming memoir.  Kathleen Buhle writes that she was left feeling 'embarrassed' and like 'I was not truly a Biden' after Hunter and their children were assigned a security detail when Joe became VP in 2009. Ironically, DailyMail.com spotted Hunter and daughter Maisy, 21, out to lunch in Malibu on Tuesday afternoon with six Secret Service agents nearby.  The Guardian obtained a copy of the book where Kathleen writes it 'triggered' her fear that she didn't belong, reminding her of an incident where Hunter's aunt left her out of a family photo and said 'Biden blood only.'   But not all 'Biden blood' have been granted a Secret Service detail even as Joe Biden sits as president. DailyMail.com revealed last week that Hunter's lovechild Navy Joan has not received security protection despite the little girl and her mom Lunden Roberts becoming entangled in a terrifying harassment case.

It follows their riposte last year after the Queen confirmed they would not “continue with the responsibilities and duties that come with a life of public service”.

Service is universal.” And in Holland last night, Meghan told the ex-military heroes at the games set up by Harry: “Thank...

    Meghan Markle will mark her first trip outside of the United States since quitting the royal family when she travels to the Netherlands with Prince Harry for the Invictus Games next week.

    Prince Harry would have been safer coming to Britain for his grandfather's memorial service than going to Holland for the Invictus Games in a fortnight, the senior police officer who protected him and his mother told MailOnline today. The Duke of Sussex has made the decision to cross the Atlantic for The Hague shortly after refusing to be with his British family at Westminster Abbey ten days ago. After being delayed by the pandemic, the next staging of the Invictus Games, an international sports competition for injured or sick military personnel and veterans from across the globe, will take place from April 16 to 22.  Former Met Inspector Ken Wharfe, who was protection officer for Princess Diana, William and Harry, has said Invictus' links to the military and former soldiers -  common targets for terrorists including ISIS extremists - means the potential threat to them and Harry is arguably higher there than being in London for Prince Philip's service of thanksgiving on March 29.  The High Court heard the duke did not feel safe in Britain without Scotland Yard officers with him. Harry...
    Elizabeth Hurley was noticeably absent from Shane Warne's emotional state memorial service at the Melbourne Cricket Ground - with no images or mention of the cricket legend's ex-fiance. A Who's Who of Australian society and the global A-list joined more than 50,000 fans in farewelling Warne on Wednesday, almost four weeks after the King of Spin died from a heart attack, age 52, on a boys' trip to Thailand. His children Brooke, Jackson and Summer stole the show with heartwrenching eulogies to close the evening, bringing tears to the eyes of his family, closest friends, sports stars, celebrities and more than 50,000 supporters in attendance. Hurley was expected to make an appearance with a recorded message alongside other notable celebrities including Kelly Slater, Greg Norman and Chris Martin who couldn't be in attendance, but instead the movie star was nowhere to be seen. Elizabeth Hurley was a glaring omission from Shane Warne's emotional state memorial service at the Melbourne Cricket Ground Sweet: On Wednesday, Elizabeth Hurley, 56, sent a sweet message to Shane Warne's daughters Brooke, 24, and Summer, 20,...
    In all her 70 years on the throne, was this perhaps the most challenging decision she has had to make as Queen? That it would have to be taken on a day brimming with such personal significance as the memorial service for her beloved Philip surely only added to its complexity. The question itself was a relatively simple one: should she take Prince Andrew’s arm for the short walk from her car to her seat in Westminster Abbey’s South Lantern? And if not Andrew’s whose? Because for all the simplicity of her choice, the consequences would reverberate far beyond the perimeter of the ancient Abbey. That the Duke of York should have every right to pay homage to his father at yesterday’s service was never in doubt. What was uncomfortable for other senior family figures, we understand, was how close he should be to the heart of the action. Sitting with his daughters in the largely anonymous second tier of family members was one thing, striding centre stage as his mother’s liegeman was potentially perilous. Here, remember was a man who...
    The Duke of Edinburgh was described as a 'devoted consort' to the Queen as the royal family's official Instagram page shared a touching photo montage dedicated to his 'extraordinary life' today. Some 1,800 guests, including senior members of the Royal Family, are expected to attend a service of thanksgiving for Prince Philip this morning at Westminster Abbey.   Ahead of the event, which will be aired from 10.30 on BBC One, the royal family's official Instagram page shared a short photo montage dedicated to the late Duke's life. Among the images were photographs from the Queen's coronation in 1953, a visit from the couple to Canada in 2010 and attending the Queen's 90th birthday celebration in 2017, as well as snaps from Prince Philip's final public engagement in 2017.  The caption detailed: 'His Royal Highness led an extraordinary life – seeing active service in the Second World War as a Naval Officer, supporting The Queen as consort for over 60 years, and pursuing his many interests and convictions through his hugely varied patronages.'  The Duke of Edinburgh was described as a...
    The Royal Family will not wear military uniforms during today's service of thanksgiving for the Duke of Edinburgh - as a nod to his 'understated and modest' style. The likes of Prince Charles and Prince William - having recently returned from a Caribbean tour - as well as the other 1,800 guests expected to attend, will instead follow a dress code of 'lounge suits and day dresses'. The monarch, 95, has rallied to make an appearance and lead her family at the high-profile and personally significant occasion in honour of husband Philip. She made the final decision on Tuesday morning, hours before she was due to travel from Windsor Castle to central London, having been determined to be at Westminster Abbey if her mobility allowed her. However, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will not be in attendance amid Harry's ongoing row with the Home Office over security. It will also mark the first public appearance for Prince Andrew since his high-profile multi-million-pound payout to Virginia Giuffre. Sources say the dress code decision will spare any dilemma over what the...
    The Royal Family and Westminster Abbey have released the full Order of Service ahead of today's memorial service for HRH Prince Philip, who died almost one year ago. The service, which is set to take place at Westminster Abbey from 11:30am today, will pay tribute to The Duke of Edinburgh’s contribution to public life and support to charitable organisations. The memorial ceremony will also incorporate several aspects that were planned for Philip's funeral last year, which were unable to go ahead due to the Covid-19 restrictions in place at the time. The Queen, who was married to The Duke of Edinburgh for 73 years prior to his death, is said to have personally overseen many elements of the service.

The couple were said to have been approached at the end of last year but it is not yet known whether they have agreed to attend the event, held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday, March 27.  Comedy star Amy Schumer will helm the 94th annual Academy Awards alongside Regina Hall and Wanda Sykes.   A source told the Sun: 'It’s still up in the air, but in all likelihood — especially in the wake of recent publicity — Harry won’t attend.

Not great optics.' A spokesperson for the Duke of Sussex last week confirmed he would not be leaving his Montecito mansion to...

Harry and Meghan's decision to quit royal life sent shockwaves across the globe when they announced the news in 2020.

    Washington (CNN)An hour after a suicide bomb exploded outside the Kabul airport on August 26, killing 13 US service members and scores of Afghan civilians, Fahim Masoud, a US military intelligence officer, made a frantic call to his sister. She, along with Masoud's parents and two other siblings, were in a CIA-organized bus navigating the crushing crowds and constant gunfire around the airport, desperately trying to escape Afghanistan.

From his home in Virginia, he told his sister to hand the phone to the bus driver. "I can't tell you where I'm getting this information," he told the driver. "But you need to get out of there."

He'd rented a safehouse for them to hide out in and cold-called senior US military officials asking for help. Now, even in a bus sent by the CIA to help...
