    THE QUEEN is a stickler for observing royal protocol and traditions but there's a reasonably modern rule that has had to be introduced to the palace. According to English broadcaster and friend of the royals Gyles Brandreth, Her Royal Highness is very hot on table manners. 1If you fancy joining the Queen for a bite to eat, there's one rule you'll have to be careful to stick toCredit: AFP He featured on ITV's This Morning on ITV on Thursday to explain the more recent addition to the royal etiquette guide. He said: “The Queen is my role model in all things. “One of the things she won’t allow at the table with her grandchildren and indeed her great-grandchildren is mobile phones at mealtimes. “She likes a formal, and I too like a fairly formal meal.

    An indignant Rep. Debbie Lesko said she’d do anything to protect her grandchildren, including shooting all five of them. That June floor speech during debate over landmark gun reform has gone viral. In early June, as the House debated measures that would become the most significant gun legislation in decades, the Arizona Republican strode to the microphone to deliver her impassioned argument against red flag laws — by raising the reddest flag in congressional history. “I have five grandchildren. I would do anything—anything—to protect my five grandchildren. Including, as a last resort, shooting them, if I had to, to protect the lives of my grandchildren,” Lesko said. “Democrat bills that we’ve heard this week want to take away my right, my right, to protect my grandchildren. They want to take away the rights of law-abiding citizens to protect their own children and grandchildren and wives and brothers and sisters,” she continued. Nothing in the remainder of the two-minute speech served to clarify or mitigate that bonkers declaration. The final reform package included funding for state red flag laws, but no...
    The Queen's great-grandchildren are set to ride in a horse-drawn carriage as part of her Platinum Jubilee celebrations - in a rare public appearance together. According to royal editor Roya Nikkhah, writing in The Sunday Times, all of Her Majesty's UK-based great-grandchildren will take part in the special event at the final performance of 'Gallop Through History' during the Royal Windsor Horse Show, on 15th May. Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, Savannah and Isla Phillips, Princess Eugenie's son August Brooksbank, Princess Beatrice's daughter Sienna Mapelli Mozzi, and Zara Tindall's children Lena, Lucas and Mia Tindall will take part.  It comes after undated footage of George, Charlotte and Louis climbing into a horse-drawn carriage at Windsor Castle while their mother watched on was shared on social media last month, which could have been a practice run for the event.  Prince Harry and Meghan's children Archie and Lilibet will not feature in the show, but it was confirmed last week that the couple will join the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June with their young son and daughter.  Ten of the Queen's twelve...
    On the face of it the clutch of family photographs released to mark the Queen’s 96th birthday are just as they should be, a touching and heart-warming celebration of the monarch as mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. From a slideshow of images issued by Prince Charles showing him and his mother down the years, to more recent snapshots of the Queen surrounded by the Royal Family’s newest and youngest generation, they are formal and informal, in colour and in black and white. And all have one thing in common — our Queen of 70 years is wreathed in smiles. But it is the one shared by Prince William on Twitter that perhaps bears the most scrutiny. The picture taken by the Duchess of Cambridge in 2018 shows William’s grandmother and late grandfather Prince Philip crowded together on a comfy sofa at Balmoral Castle with seven of their great-grandchildren. In a week when Prince Harry has made a none too subtle attempt to carve out an aura of exclusivity in his own relationship with the Queen, it is a powerful — and...

    (CNN)Claudette Colvin, a civil rights pioneer who in March 1955, at the age of 15, was arrested for refusing to give up her seat to a White person on a Montgomery, Alabama, bus, is seeking to get her conviction expunged. Colvin's legal team said Monday it plans to file a request Tuesday with a Montgomery County court to clear Colvin's record.Colvin, now 82, was charged with two counts of violating of the city's segregation ordinance and one felony count of assaulting a police officer. She was convicted on all counts in juvenile court, but the segregation convictions were overturned on appeal. "There were two colored females sitting opposite two white females, that refused to move to the back with the rest of the colored," the 1955 police arrest report said. "Claudette Colvin, age 15, colored female, refused. We then informed Claudette that she was under arrest." Colvin's case came nine months before Rosa Parks made history for also refusing to give up her bus seat. However, Parks' case received more attention during the civil rights movement in part because Parks'...

    SHE wasn’t always able to devote time to her own children – but the Queen is determined to do things differently with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, says royal expert Ingrid Seward. They call her Gan-Gan and she delights in leaving little surprises in their bedrooms when they come to stay. 8The Queen's touching bond with her great-grandchildren revealed - from sweet nicknames to surprising them with gifts While we rarely see the Queen with her great-grandchildren – this touching snap, released after the death of Prince Philip and taken by the Duchess of Cambridge, is one of the few occasions they have been photographed together – she is close to them all, mentioning them in her Christmas speeches, in her letters and in conversation. In fact, her family of eight grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren is what keeps her going. These days, the Queen is confident that the future of the monarchy, for which she has worked so hard, is secured not only by her son Prince Charles, but by her grandson Prince William and her great-grandson Prince George.

    The Queen wants her children and grandchildren to 'enjoy Christmas with their other loved-ones' and 'not feel torn' as she prepares for a 'quiet' festive season at Windsor, a royal expert has claimed.  The Queen 94, and Prince Philip, 99, traditionally spend the festive season with close family at Sandringham, in Norfolk. But it was announced earlier this week that this year they will forgo the festivities and remain at Windsor Castle, where they have been isolating with a 'bubble' of staff since October.  It is understood the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh will not take advantage of the relaxed Covid restrictions to form a Christmas bubble with other households. Vanity Fair's Katie Nicholl reported: 'The Queen has said that this is the year for her family to enjoy Christmases with other family members and not feel torn, as they often do, when a royal Christmas takes priority.' The Queen, 94, 'has said this is the year her family enjoy Christmas with other family members and not feel torn', according to Vanity Fair's Katie Nicholl  It means the...
    Dear Moneyist, My mother plans to leave her house, which is paid in full, equally to me and my sister. This has already been addressed with her will. However, she ultimately wants it to go to her grandchildren. I have one child and my sister has two children. As it stands now, my sister and I will each inherit 50% of the house, which means my child will inherit my half and my sister’s kids will get her half. My daughter is 12 years of age, and my sister’s kids are aged 16 and 19. We know our mom’s intention is for the kids to equally have part of the home. Does that sound fair to you? When the house passes to us what do we need to do so that the kids each get 1/3 of the house? My husband and I have an estate plan, but my sister and her husband do not. Devoted Daughter and Sister You can email The Moneyist with any financial and ethical questions at [email protected], and agree that your letters may be published...
    There was no question that my dad’s side of the family would celebrate the 98th birthday of our matriarch, Angelita Arellano, which happened on Oct. 1. OK, there was one: how? We’re a tamborazo-loving, food-crazy, hug-addicted clan where a family party of some sorts — wedding, baptism, quinceañera, or carne asada just for the hell of it — seems to happen every weekend. But Los Angeles County, where nearly all of my dad’s side of the family lives — my siblings and I are the weirdos who ended up in Orange County — is still under strict coronavirus lockdowns, spontaneous Lakers celebrations notwithstanding. And none of us wanted to kill Grandma — which we call her as much as we do abuelita, because assimilation — after she’s lived almost a century. So after a bunch of texts and money transfers via Venmo, a bunch of cousins decided on a plan: A socially distant fiesta that would still make the Arellanos proud. We asked Grandma to sit on the front steps of the house of my Tia Nacha in...

    MORGAN HILL (KPIX 5) — In the current COVID-19 era, birthday wishes can be hard to fulfill when you can’t see family in person. But a Bay Area family recently figured out a way to make a grandmother’s birthday dream come true. All Morgan Hill resident Maria Vasquez wanted for her birthday was to hug her eleven grandchildren and family members. “Hugs have been off limits for me,” Vasquez explained. When faced with the dilemma of allowing Vasquez the human contact she wanted without exposing her to increased coronavirus risk, her family got creative and set her up with a birthday surprise involving rubber gloves and a shower curtain. KPIX 5 reporter Juliette Goodrich asked Vasquez to describe what happened that day when her family insisted she close her eyes for their visit. “When they finally said, ‘Open your eyes,’ it was the shower curtain with two sets of gloves,” Vasquez remembered. “I’m like, ‘What!?!’ I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, they actually listened to me when they asked me what I wanted.’ And that’s all I wanted. Hugs.” And...
