Last night one of the world’s leading firearms experts condemned Edward’s behaviour as “shocking” and “terrible”

Her Majesty The Queen
Last night one of the world’s leading firearms experts condemned Edward’s behaviour as “shocking” and “terrible” PRINCE Edward was branded “totally reckless” and “grossly negligent” last night after being photographed aiming a gun close to his young son’s head. The extraordinary image shows the Earl of Wessex sighting the powerful double-barrelled shotgun just over six-year-old James, Viscount Severn, who is standing in front of him. The picture, taken yesterday on the Queen’s Sandringham estate, appears to show the 50-year-old royal breaking the cardinal rule of shooting, to never point a gun in an unsafe direction. Last night one of the world’s leading firearms experts condemned Edward’s behaviour as “shocking” and “terrible”. Former policeman and safety campaigner Ronald Scott, who

Lord Airlie has now handed over the management of the estate to his son Lord Ogilvy and the future of the castle is under “active consideration”. “The castle is very large and I think it is now too large, given I am 88 and my wife is 82,” Lord Airlie told The Courier. “I’m lucky that I am still very fit but there will come a time when such a big house will become a serious problem and I think what we felt was we ought to make a move before it becomes quite difficult and we become too old

A close friend of Prince William and Prince Harry may face legal action after filming a promotional video outside Buckingham Palace Guy Pelly's video for his London bar Tonteria, shows semi-naked dancers twerking against the backdrop of the Palace and actors dressed as zombies, near the Victoria Memorial outside the Palace gates. While it is illegal to film outside Buckingham Palace without permission, the joke might also be considered inappropriate considering Pelly's close association with the royals. In the video posted on YouTube, the dancers are seen cavorting in front of other famous London landmarks including the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye and Harrods. The zombie theme in the video replicates the bar, where topless men wearing giant skulls patrol the club with sparklers...
