strongest hint yet that a royal engagement IS imminent

Meghan Markle confirms romance with Harry for first time Meghan Markle confirms romance with Harry for first time" 

The stunning 36-year-old Suits actress, who graces the cover of Vanity Fair's October issue this week, has never before confirmed that the heir to the British throne is her boyfriend. Meghan, 36, also appeared to hint that while an engagement could one day be on the cards, the couple will continue to keep their 'special' relationship in private and stay firmly away from the spotlight.

Off to school with Dad!

 

Slide 1 of 50: Prince George was escorted by his dad, Prince William, to his first day of school at Thomas's Battersea in London on September 7, 2017. Duchess Kate, who was 11 weeks pregnant at the time with their third child, stayed home because of her trouble with hypremesis gravidarum, an acute morning sickness. 

Duchess Kate was understandably upset to miss her son Prince George’s first day of school due to suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum, an acute morning sickness. 

“Kate watched the news from home,” a source close to the royal couple tells Us Weekly exclusively. “She was desperately sad that she couldn’t make it but she is on firm bed rest now until she feels better.”

The young boy was accompanied by his father, Prince William, for the big day at Thomas's Battersea school on Thursday, September 7.

Reporters at the scene were told that the Duke of Cambridge, 35, held onto George’s backpack as they went to meet the lower school principal, Helen Haslem, and the proud dad stayed until his son was settled in his classroom before he departed for the day.

Despite the exciting milestone, an insider tells Us that the moment has brought mixed feelings for the couple.

“The first day of a child’s school is always a bittersweet day for a mother,” says the source. "Both Kate and William are extremely proud of George and how well behaved he was as he arrived, but it’s also a little frightening to see him grow up this fast!”

Ben Thomas, who was the headmaster of Thomas’s Battersea for 18 years and is now the principal of Thomas’s London Day Schools, told reporters that the young royal would be treated exactly the same as any other student.

"Our aim for him, as well as for all of our pupils, is to provide a safe and secure and happy environment where he feels supported by a kind and loving community,” he said.

"That’s all we will be trying to achieve for him. There won’t be any special treatment at all. In fact what his parents would like for him, as any parent would like for their child, is they have a wonderful, fulfilling and private childhood in a place which is secure

Daddy is Princess Alexandra's nephew.

A playmate for the prince? Lord Frederick Windsor takes eldest daughter Maud to Thomas's school in Battersea - and she's in the same class as distant cousin George

Lord Frederick Windsor's daughter starts Battersea schoolLord Frederick Windsor's daughter starts Battersea school" 

Prince George (inset) was not the only royal to join Thomas's School in Battersea today with his distant cousin Maud Windsor starting on the same day. Maud (left), four, who is the granddaughter of the Queen's cousin, was dropped off by her father Lord Frederick (right with Maud) Windsor on Thursday. Not only will Lord Windsor's eldest be in the same school as the heir to the throne the youngsters are thought to be sharing a classroom too.

I remember the first days my boys started school. They couldn't wait to get into the classroom while I wiped tears from my eyes at the thought of them becoming more independent and growing up. 

Hi Hola.

I remember my late mother coming to meet my younger son with me from his first day and she asked what he had learn't that day, he said to her 'nofink'  LOL we all laughed.

Camilla to 'Christen' Royal Navy's new carrier"

Charles and Camilla - known as the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay when in Scotland - are attending the event along with senior politicians, naval officers and veterans of the HMS Prince of Wales which was sunk during the Second World War. Camilla smashed a bottle of whisky against the Royal Navy's second state of the art aircraft carrier, saying: 'I name this ship Prince of Wales. May God bless her and all who sail in her.' The event is being held in Rosyth Dockyard, Fife, where the 65,000-tonne aircraft carrier is being fitted before it launches in 2019. The Duchess of Cornwall declared: 'I name this ship Prince of Wales. May God bless her and all who sail in her.' She pressed a button to trigger the smashing of a bottle of Laphroaig whisky against the ship's hull.

 

It is not the first time I have heard she was a bit of a bitch.

Her Rude Highness: Beautiful, yes, but not particularly charming, CRAIG BROWN on how Princess Margaret turned pickiness into an art form as she went out of her way to ruffle feathers and put strangers at unease

How Princess Margaret turned pickiness into an art form

Margaret thought the world cruel for seeing her as the negative version of her sister, yet it was also how she came to define herself, writes CRAIG BROWN. He adds: 'As she grew older, Princess Margaret turned pickiness into an art form, snubbing hosts who offered food and drink that were not exactly what she wanted. The Princess was drawn to theatrical types, and they to a smoky, nightclub worldliness that was mischievously at odds with her position. Then, having enticed them in, she would suddenly snap at them, making it clear that by attempting to engage with her on equal terms they were guilty of a monstrous presumption.'

Attila - They are some of the worst dresses I have seen. I wonder who had the final say on which would suit her best for the occasion?.

Must admit the purple one is dreadful Hola and it also indicates how fashions have changed don't you think?

I know she had to wear clothing that the British Fashion designers came up with to advertise their business/skills.    I just wonder how many overseas purchasers were enticed by that dress!   LOL

 

was princess diana deliberately killed?  what do you think?

three important facts to consider:

1. 18 months before she died, Diana wrote to two separate friends (one, her lawyer), stating that the Royal family would attempt to murder her by staging a car accident.

2. The death of Diana resolved a potentially awkward and unpleasant situation for the Royal family.

3. The press repeatedly published exaggerations and falsehoods about many areas of the case, whilst with-holding and ignoring other important evidence.

Prince Albert of Monaco opened up about the tragic death of his mother in a car accident in a rare and candid television interview (seen left). The 59-year-old monarch said it took the family (pictured right) years to overcome the trauma of Princess Grace's death, admitting the accident left his father, Prince Rainier III, a changed man, and that his sister Princess Stephanie, who was in the car with her mother at the time of the crash, was particularly affected.
