    I guess it probably helps having all your cleaning / cooking / laundry done, shedloads of cash in the bank, and a few different houses to get away from each other!!

    Both are awful but the ‘toilet seat’ hat won’t be forgotten for a long time.

    She had a certain pizazz, an alluring quality, and beautiful when she was young.


    —I really like QM’s hat style over the years.
    And I love the historic photos.

    The Queen Mother is missed she must have been fun to be around. Every interview I have read from people who knew her say she had a great personality and that she was kind.

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are reportedly 'nesting' with baby Archie, as they settle into co-parenting their newborn son.

    The new parents are said to be keen to divide the parenting tasks, with Meghan, 37, breastfeeding, while Prince Harry changes nappies and cooks for guests at Frogmore Cottage.

    Royal commentator Carolyn Durand told Elle.com that Harry, who is 'over the moon' with his new son, 'makes tea' for visitors who have popped in to meet baby Archie.

    While she added that one royal source revealed:' [Archie] is the cutest little thing I've ever seen. They couldn't be happier.'

    Prince Harry plans to travel to Africa with Meghan Markle and their new son Archie to finish the anti-landmine work Princess Diana started.

    As part of the couple's autumn tour, Harry will journey to Angola in a bid to complete his late mother's legacy of charity work for the HALO Trust.

    Diana famously visited Angola in January 1997, just months before her tragic death in a car crash in Paris in August that year.

    The six-month 'secondment' to Africa is expected to take place in the next two to three years and see the couple visit Malawi, South Africa and possibly Botswana to extend work of his charity Sentebale.

    I am sorry but MM is not a fashion icon or the queen of fashion. She has spent a gigantic amount of money on designer clothing and she did not look good in 90 percent of them. Maybe it was because the clothes were not tailored to her. There were only a few items that I saw that I liked. She loves to bare her shoulders but her shoulders are too broad. I am sure there are clothes out there that would look fantastic on her. I would not value her opinion on fashion based on what I have seen, but then again, I have not seen everything. Women do love fashion. I love to look at fashion.

    It is just a tactic Conde Nast the publisher of British Vogue is using to try and increase advertising revenue in the biggest issue of the year. They are hoping Royal fans will buy the magazine and boost circulation numbers. Conde Nast is in big trouble because circulation of flagship magazines like American Vogue and British Vogue is dwindling rapidly. They are losing $100 million plus a year and have made drastic cutbacks. In fact I think they will cease to exist at some point in the coming years. At least the Duchess of Sussex is an improvement on Kim Kardashian who has appeared appeared in April this year on the cover of American Vogue.

    Hopefully the Duchess of Sussex will start using a professional stylist in future one that will cut down on the Givenchy. It will be interesting to see what she is wearing in Vogue hopefully her friend Jessica isn’t the stylist.

    Tiara Alert!

    :DThe Prince Philip Wedding Bracelet

    When Lieutenant Philip Mountbatten -- or, as he was formerly known, His Royal Highness Prince Philip of Greece and Denmark -- proposed to Princess Elizabeth of the United Kingdom in the 1940s, he had to find a way to present his bride with jewels appropriate for a future queen while earning a sailor's paycheck.

    [​IMG]
    The Princess debuted her engagement ring for the first time in official photographs taken at Buckingham Palace.
    Help came in the form of a diamond tiara :p owned by his mother, Princess Alice of Battenberg. The piece was dismantled; some of the stones were used to create Elizabeth's engagement ring, while others were used to make the diamond bracelet
    [​IMG]
    Both jewels were made from diamonds taken from a tiara that belonged to the Duke's mother, Princess Andrew of Greece and Denmark
