    Prince William and other senior royals faced a mysterious hour-long delay as they rushed to see the Queen before she died on Thursday.  The RAF jet - which also had Prince Andrew, Prince Edward and his wife Sophie on board - had taken off for Balmoral at 2.39pm despite being scheduled to leave at 1.30pm, The Sun reports.  At 3.50pm the plane, a Dassault Falcon, landed at Aberdeen airport. The reason for the last-minute hold-up at RAF Northolt in South Ruislip is not yet known. Prince Harry was not on the plane and had to make his own journey to Scotland because a crash would have sparked a constitutional crisis, experts have suggested.  It is believed that the Duke of Sussex was furious that he did not make it to Balmoral in time, arriving two hours after his beloved grandmother's death.  Today, the Queen's coffin left her beloved Balmoral Castle to begin its 500-mile journey to Buckingham Palace, with thousands lining the route to pay their respects to the late monarch.

The King ordered his warring sons to set aside their ongoing feud ahead of the Queen's funeral, leading the pair to reunite publicly for the first time in more than a year, it was last night revealed.  McLean, who is Canadian, described the quartet getting out of a car: 'You can see Harry get out first and then you saw Meghan and then the other two royals as well'  Viewers took umbrage with what they saw, despite McLean being from the US' neighbor to the north, as Americans and an American network being disrespectful of...

    Prince Andrew and Princess Beatrice are expected to take on the care of two corgis they gave to the Queen. The dogs – Muick and Sandy – were gifts from her second son and his elder daughter after the death of Prince Philip in 2021.

    Camilla the Queen Consort will take over the reins from the late Queen as the Royal figurehead of horse-racing, senior sources have told The Mail on Sunday. She is known to adore the sport and her role is being openly discussed in racing circles. King Charles inherits the Sandringham stud, plus the Sovereign’s racing colours: purple body with gold braid, scarlet sleeves and black velvet cap with gold trim. However, the King has to date not been as enthusiastic about the sport as his wife. Charles was a keen amateur jockey in the 1980s but his involvement has been nominal.

    When the Queen was nearing her 60th birthday, her then Press Secretary rang her from the intercom on his desk at Buckingham Palace and told her Queen Juliana of the Netherlands had just abdicated.  Juliana was 71 and had been on the throne for 32 years. ‘Typical Dutch,’ said the Queen disparagingly and hung up on him. No one was ever brave enough to make any comment of that nature again.  Her faith in God was deep. She believed that He appointed her and the Crown was a symbol of that calling. She believed she had a duty to discharge with her life and she never wavered in that sense of duty.  The Queen grew up in the happiest and securest of families. Her parents adored her and, although they employed nannies to take care of her, they devoted a surprising amount of their time to the young Elizabeth, known as Lilibet (right), and her sister Margaret, four years her junior (front) pictured with her cousin Margaret Rhodes Because of the extraordinary woman she was, and the way she conducted...

    CNN's Jake Tapper suggested on his show 'The Lead' Friday that it would be 'clever' for President Biden to invite his predecessor Donald Trump to Queen Elizabeth II's funeral - as many wonder if the once-woke network is 'pulling to the political right.' The statement from the network's chief DC correspondent came less than a day after Biden revealed he would be attending the queen's funeral. Buckingham Palace announced her passing at 96 years of age on Thursday. Tapper made the remarks as part of a roundtable discussion on Biden's precarious position on whether to bring Trump to the somber ceremony, scheduled for September 19. While it's not unusual for ex-presidents to attend the same event, Biden and Trump have been engaged in a bitter feud since the current president's electoral triumph over his Republican rival. Both men have accused the other of being a threat to the Constitution. The assertion from the network's prominent news show host follows a recent pattern of previously progressive CNN stalwarts expressing increasingly conservative opinions. The news network has been focused on purging itself of its...
    When Liz Truss rose to her feet to address the Commons at 11.40am on Thursday, she had known for more than two hours that the Queen was unlikely to survive the day. The new Prime Minister had been thrashing out the final details of her £150 billion energy bailout with close aides when she was told by Cabinet Secretary Simon Case that the monarch was gravely ill and it was a ‘matter of hours, not days’. As she tried to absorb the enormity of the news, Ms Truss realised that she would have to mask her anguish until Buckingham Palace had formally told the nation – after she had delivered her Commons statement.

    It's easily forgotten that, as well as being a mother, wife and daughter, Queen Elizabeth was also a sister. They grew up as a unit, but their destinies were to prove wildly different, with Elizabeth’s decades of service and constancy contrasting sharply with Margaret’s much wilder, shorter and more rackety life. In the 1930s, they were always known to the public as a twosome: ‘the little Princesses’. Yet even in childhood, the contrasting characters of the two sisters, Elizabeth and Margaret, were already clear to those who knew them well. The strength of Elizabeth's affection for her sometimes difficult younger sister is evident in this photograph of Elizabeth with Margaret and Antony Armstrong-Jones, 1960s Their father, King George VI, would refer to Elizabeth as his pride, and Margaret, four years her junior, as his joy Their father, King George VI, would refer to Elizabeth as his pride, and Margaret, four years her junior, as his joy.

    One of the Queen's most trusted confidantes is set to be allowed to stay on in her grace-and-favour home at Windsor – thanks to the Queen herself. Angela Kelly, a docker's daughter from Liverpool, began work as an Assistant Dresser at the Royal Household before becoming indispensable to the Monarch. Her reward was a grace-and-favour home a short walk from Windsor Castle. Staff who work for the Queen typically would have only a month's notice after the end of her reign before they would either be redeployed to another Royal household or look for alternative employment.

    A British historian slammed woke MSNBC host Ali Velshi on live TV Saturday for only 'concentrating on the negatives' after he began a special on the Queen's legacy by condemning the history of the royal family. Velshi began his special on the Queen's legacy Saturday talking about her long reign and saying she 'was a constant for the British people. 'She endeared herself to the public, and her popularity is unmatched by any other member of the royal family,' Velshi, a Canadian-American, mused. But, he then added: 'As beloved as Elizabeth was, she also represented an institution that had a long and ugly history of brutal colonialism, violence, theft and slavery. 'For many centuries, the British robbed other nations of their wealth and power, and exploited their people,' he continued.   'Even as Queen Elizabeth's reign largely marked the beginning of the post colonial era, the horrors that her long line of ancestors inflicted upon many generations of people across the globe continues to be the source of pain. Following those remarks, Velshi shared a clip of the new king's speech...

    While the UK continues to reel from the death of Queen Elizabeth II, woke liberals have renewed their attack on the former monarch. A University of Michigan education professor even compared the monarchy to the Confederacy in the United States. 'Telling the colonized how they should feel about their colonizer's health and wellness is like telling my people that we ought to worship the Confederacy,' Ebony Elizabeth Thomas, an associate professor of education, tweeted on Thursday. '"Respect the dead" when we're all writing these tweets *in English*,' she continued. 'How did that happen, hm? We just chose this language?' Following backlash for the tweet, she later added: 'You don't see me dancing on anyone's grave because my ancestors' enslaver removed us in the 18th Century. You also don't see me policing other people's emotions.'  Meanwhile, Eugene Scott, a national politics reporter for the Washington Post asked: 'Real question for the "now is not the appropriate time to talk about the negative impact of colonialism" crowd: When is the appropriate time to talk about the negative impact of colonialism?'

    ENGLAND cricketers sang a spine-tingling first televised rendition of "God Save the King" before a sporting event in 70 years following the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Yesterday's play was cancelled as a mark of respect following her passing aged 96 on Thursday. 2Ben Stokes spoke eloquently before playCredit: Getty After consultation with DCMS and in line with Official National Mourning Guidance, the decision was made to resume play on Saturday morning. England's third Test against South Africa belatedly got underway, with stars wearing black armbands as a mark of respect. The players entered the field flanked by a military guard of honour, before a minute's silence was immaculately observed by those in attendance at The Oval. The national anthem of South Africa was then played - before special, touching scenes when a rousing rendition of God Save the King was subsequently belted out by the passionate crowd.

    Because I have met her — because, at close quarters, I have observed her as she carried out a range of her official duties — people often ask me, leaning forward, narrowing their eyes: 'What was the Queen really like?' My answer disappoints them. 'Very nice,' I say. 'Rather normal, actually; quite straightforward; much as you'd expect.' I wonder if we appreciate how fortunate we have been. Elizabeth II was neither eccentric nor quixotic, and her husband was as honest and straightforward as the day is long. If there is one word that sums up Elizabeth II, it is 'dutiful'. Her life was driven by duty. She was a dutiful daughter and a dutiful Queen. As Princess Elizabeth, aged 21, she said: 'I declare before you all that my whole life, whether it be long or short, shall be devoted to your service.' She meant it. At her Coronation, she made a commitment to God as well as to her people, and her faith sustained her in all she did. Because I have met her — because, at close quarters,...
    As BBC presenter Huw Edwards delivered the sombre news of Queen Elizabeth II's tragic death, two newsroom staff appeared to be taking photos in the background. The moment sparked outrage among viewers who said the commotion was both distracting and insensitive. Edwards, 61, has received widespread praise for his sensitive and genuine delivery of the news on Thursday night, and it's reported that he spent months preparing for moment. But in the background of his live cross to the right of the screen, two newsroom employees held up their phones for at least 20 seconds, scanning around the room before settling in the direction of Edwards. The pair appear to be taking photos and filming the historic moment, though some eagle-eyed fans argue it looked like they were taking selfies.

    Joe Biden's mother is said to have hated the English so much that she told him not to bow down to the Queen ahead of his first meeting with her.  President Biden first met the late monarch when he was a young senator in 1982, however just as he was leaving for the airport to fly to the UK, he recalled in a 2013 speech, how his mother phoned him. 'Joey, be polite but do not kiss her ring,' Biden told his audience to laughter. 'Swear to God.' Biden also repeated his mother's concern about showing undue deference to the Queen in his autobiography, Promises to Keep, this time recalling: 'When I told my mother I was going to have an audience with the Queen of England, the first thing she said was: "Don't you bow down to her."  He went on: '"Remember Joey," she'd say, "you're a Biden. Nobody is better than you. You’re not better than anybody else, but nobody is any better than you."' To bow or curtsy was not a mandatory requirement when visiting the Queen,...

    The nation will come to a halt in nine days' time as the Queen is laid to rest amid all the pomp and ceremony that Britain does best. Our longest-serving monarch will have the first state funeral for more than half a century at Westminster Abbey on Monday, September 19. As well as being the first since Winston Churchill's in 1965, it will also be the first at the abbey for any monarch since George II's way back in 1760. Since then such funerals have been held at St George's Chapel, Windsor. But the Queen, who played an active role in planning her final send-off, decided hers should be in the much larger abbey. It can hold a congregation of 2,000, compared with 800 at St George's Chapel and its central London location makes it a better spot for large crowds.

    Emmanuel Macron broke from official protocol yesterday to deliver a touching tribute to Queen Elizabeth II in English. The French president’s address from the Elysee Palace in Paris praised the monarch’s ‘wisdom and empathy’, adding ‘we all feel an emptiness’. ‘To you, she was your Queen. To us, she was the Queen,’ the French leader said during the three-minute speech posted on social media. ‘Elizabeth II mastered our language, loved our culture and touched our hearts. From her coronation on, she knew and spoke with all of our presidents. No other country had the privilege of welcoming her as many times as we did.’ Mr Macron made the address in front of the French and EU flags, as well as a Union Jack. The British flag appears at the Elysee only when a high-level dignitary from the UK is present.
    In the wake of Queen Elizabeth II’s death, plans agreed under ‘Operation Gold Orb’ – the secret codename for the coronation of her son Charles – will swing into action. When she was crowned in June 1953 it was a lavish ceremony that was a much-needed morale boost for a nation starved of pageantry by the war. But 70 years later, the forthcoming coronation of King Charles III is expected to be a vastly scaled-down affair at Westminster Abbey and one which will cement his wife’s place in history. The service is not expected to happen before next spring but still within a timeframe much quicker than the Queen’s own 16-month wait after she acceded to the throne. With modern Britain very different to society in 1953, the coronation will reflect the religious and cultural diversity of the country and will mark a significant departure from the crowning of his mother – pictured in her full regalia – which reflected the nation and empire of the time  With modern Britain very different to society in 1953, the coronation will reflect...

    WHILE my friendship with Prince Edward was reasonably brief and largely platonic, he was actually a caring soul. At the time we knew each other, I developed glandular fever (the kissing disease, say no more). 2While my friendship with Prince Edward was reasonably brief and largely platonic, he was actually a caring soulCredit: Alpha Photo Press Agency 2At the time we knew each other, I developed glandular fever (the kissing disease, say no more)Credit: Rex Anyone who has been afflicted knows it’s horrendously debilitating and I went to stay with my parents to recuperate. Bear in mind, this was back in the days without mobile phones. If you needed to speak to someone, you had to use a landline and phone their home. One morning, Prince Edward phoned and asked how I was and would I mind if he popped over for a cuppa that afternoon. He was at Windsor, which was only minutes away from where my parents lived.

    SPLASHING through the breakers on an Australian beach, Prince Charles was ambushed by a stunning bikini-clad model who promptly planted a kiss on his cheek. The young woman, Jane Priest, would later tell how an awkward Charles — obeying royal protocol — did not reply, “Pleased to meet you” but “Oh, I can’t touch you”. 19Charles talks to a married Camilla at a polo match in 1975Credit: Rex Features 19Model Jane Priest planted a kiss on Charles on a 1979 visit to AustraliaCredit: Camera Press 19Charles arriving at Cardiff Docks for a visit to the city in 1976Credit: Times Newspapers Ltd 19Pilot Charles flying a helicopter with the Royal Navy in 1974Credit: News Group Newspapers Ltd It was 1979 and Charles, then 30, was described by Fleet Street scribes as the “world’s most eligible bachelor”.
