    The Queen 'knew she wasn't going to come back and wanted to pass at Balmoral because she could actually leave her crown at the gates and be a different role', a royal expert has claimed.

Prince William, now known as the Prince of Wales, has issued an extraordinarily personal tribute to his “grannie.” In a moving statement that appeared to refer to the queen’s support for him when his mother Princess Diana died, William said: “She was by my side at my happiest moments. And she was by my side during the saddest days of my life. I knew this day would come, but it will be some time before the reality of life without Grannie will truly feel real.” Shortly after the statement was issued, William and Kate Middleton—now the Princess of Wales, and the first person to hold that title since the death of Princess Diana—were due to arrive at Windsor Castle to view floral tributes left there by the public in memory of the queen, who died Thursday aged 96. William, who recently moved to Windsor in part so that his family could see more of the...

    Of all the tributes that have poured in for our greatest ever monarch Queen Elizabeth II the past 24 hours, it was a heartfelt Instagram post by her former daughter-in-law that stuck with me the most. Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, was, as we all know, exiled from official royal life following her divorce from Prince Andrew and a series of mortifying indiscretions better left in tabloid history. But, even as her beloved husband Prince Philip refused to be in the same room as Fergie, the Queen remained steadfastly loyal on a personal level. To her, once a Windsor, always a Windsor. Grief-stricken Fergie confirmed as much last night, as she wrote following a more formal tribute: 'To me, she was the most incredible mother-in-law and friend. I will always be grateful to her for the generosity she showed me in remaining close to me even after my divorce. I will miss her more than words can express.' If the life of Elizabeth II has taught us one thing it is that blood is thicker than water. For that...

    The Queen was a beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, and the monarch's family showed just how much they treasured her by naming their children after her. The Queen - Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Mountbatten-Windsor - herself was named after her mother - Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, who was Duchess of York when she gave birth to her in 1926. Her first middle name Alexandra came from her great-grandmother and wife of King Edward VII, while her second middle name Mary came from her grandmother and wife of King George V. But just as her name was inspired by those who came before her, so her name Elizabeth has been used by younger generations of her own family.  From her daughter Anne to three of her four granddaughters, and her great-grandchild Lilibet, Femail brings you the all the royals whose names have been inspired by the Queen.  The Queen, pictured here during an audience at Windsor Castle in February 2022, was named after her mother, Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next High society mourns the death of the...
    Prince Harry has landed in Aberdeen - shortly after the death of his grandmother, the Queen, was announced.  Buckingham Palace declared the passing of Britain's longest-serving monarch aged 96 at 6.30pm this evening.

    Barack Obama paid tribute to the Queen during her platinum jubilee celebration on Thursday, calling her a 'gift' to the world and saying she reminded him of his grandmother. Obama's tribute aired during the BBC's broadcast of the celebration marking the Queen's 70 years on the throne. He and Michelle Obama met with the Queen three times during his presidency and formed close relationships with several members of the Royal Family. 'When you're president of the United States, you meet a lot of remarkable people, and you try under all circumstances to retain your composure,' Obama said in his tribute. 'But that's harder than you think when you're visiting Her Majesty.' He said he and Michelle were nervous ahead of their first meeting with her in April 2009.  'Before I took office, Michelle and I hadn't been to too many palaces,' he noted. 'So, we weren't sure what to expect on our first trip to Buckingham. But we shouldn't have been worried. Her Majesty put us at ease with her grace and generosity. So much so that I walked away...
    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...
    The Queen's grandson Peter Phillips has introduced his girlfriend to his grandmother, according to reports. The father-of-two reportedly introduced his new partner Lindsay Wallace to Her Majesty following a shooting party which was held at Windsor.

    Weaponising one’s children in any intra-family conflict is unseemly and cruel. To do so when the victim is your 95-year-old grandmother who has spent her entire life devoted to public service is a despicable new low. And, make no mistake, that is exactly what the prissy and petulant Duke of Woke is doing, with his massive strop and ill-advised legal challenge over the UK government’s decision to refuse him police protection when in Britain because he’s no longer a working royal - by choice, remember. In public, Prince Harry and Meghan are forever banging on about their love for the Queen. But like most virtue signalling, woketopian multi-millionaires, their woolly words are never followed up by good deeds. If Harry doesn’t get the security he wants, he is likely to attend her Platinum Jubilee celebrations alone, leaving Archie and Lilibet back in California with Meghan Harry is the polar opposite of his exceptional grandmother, who, throughout her reign, has kept her public pronouncements to a minimum and allowed herself to be judged by her actions. I believe the couple’s latest...

    'If the freedom of speech is taken away,' said America's first president George Washington, 'then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.' His view was shared by Thomas Jefferson, a fellow Founding Father and America's third president, who declared: 'Our liberty depends on the freedom of the press, and that cannot be limited without being lost.' These two men helped create the initial United States Constitution and subsequent Bill of Rights that included the First Amendment which was specifically designed to protect the very freedoms they were referring to. That Amendment states: 'Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.' They are arguably the most important words in the entire Constitution and have afforded Americans, and American journalists, the most powerful protection for their rights to freedom of speech and expression of any country in the world.

If you’re wondering who voiced concerns to Prince Harry about how dark his child with Meghan Markle might be, this morning Oprah Winfrey confirmed that it definitely was not the Queen or Prince Phillip.

    Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, opened her interview with Oprah Winfrey sharing about how she went into her marriage to Prince Harry “naively,” telling how she had refrained from researching her future husband online and how he had to teach her to curtsy right before she met Queen Elizabeth for the first time. Markle sat down alone with Winfrey at the beginning; her husband would join later. The conversation started with her wedding, and Markle said that she had “tried to make it fun and light and remind ourselves that this was our day.” “But I think we were both really aware, even in advance of that, this– this wasn’t our day. This was the day that was planned for the world.” “Everybody who gets married knows that you are really marrying the family too,” said Winfrey. “But you weren’t just marrying a family. You were marrying a 1,200-year-old institution. You were marrying the monarchy. What did you think it was going to be like?” “I will say, I went into it naively,” said Markle, describing how she had not followed news of the British royal family growing up in America, had not...
    Prince Harry did not inform the Queen about the 'tell-all' interview he and Meghan are to give to Oprah Winfrey, The Mail on Sunday can reveal. Her Majesty was 'blindsided' last week when it emerged that the Duchess of Sussex and her husband had agreed to talk to the American chat show host. She learned of it only when US TV network CBS hurriedly issued a statement on Monday after a producer working for Ms Winfrey mistakenly alerted ITV to the project. It is usual for members of the Royal Family to run potential TV interviews past the Queen. But Harry not only kept the deal secret, sources question whether he instigated the discussions with the Queen over the Sussexes' 'divorce deal' in order for it to be settled before the interview, which was recorded last Tuesday. Harry and Meghan brought forward the announcement of their 'wide-ranging interview, covering everything from stepping into life as a Royal, marriage, motherhood [and] philanthropic work' after ITV were accidentally tipped off about it. Prince Harry (pictured with Meghan Markle) did not inform...
