In recent months, young British queens have ascended to the throne of prestige TV. In November, Netflix debuted its series The Crown, which follows the early reign of Queen Elizabeth II, who came to the throne in 1952. And in January, PBS launched the new drama Victoria, which traces the rise of Queen Victoria in the 19th century. Any historical TV show is bound to make choices about which events and themes are most important. But the shows’ approaches are particularly noteworthy because they reflect 21st-century expectations about women in leadership positions. Contemporary audiences assume that a young woman in power—regardless of the era in which she rules—would necessarily be filled with self-doubt, and be forced to spend much of her time winning over skeptical men.

It was announced on Friday that Queen Elizabeth II has invited US President Donald Trump to visit, but Trump might want to go back over his social media history before his royal meeting. Back in 2012, Trump tweeted about Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge (Kate Middleton), in reference to some topless paparazzi snaps of her while she was on holiday on a private island. "Who wouldn't take Kate's picture and make lots of money if she does the nude sunbathing thing. Come on Kate!" he wrote at the time.

The Queen offers rare job in Buckingham Palace – and ANYONE can apply Fancy living in Buckingham Palace and getting paid a wedge to work for The Queen?

Whoever lands the job will be expected to keep “items from carpets and furniture to historic vases and irreplaceable paintings” squeaky clean. Manners are presumably also a must as you’ll likely cross paths with Elizabeth II and the Royal Family on a regular basis. Although the salary is relatively modest, the successful applicant will receive free meals, a generous 33 holidays a year, and accommodation at the Royal residence. However, the Royal Household ad warns that “this is no standard housekee
This should be awkward. During what seemed to be a successful visit with UK Prime Minister Theresa May at the White House Friday, Trump announced he had accepted an invitation from Queen Elizabeth II for a state visit later this year with first lady Melania. But Trump's tweeting past might make the royal visit trip slightly uncomfortable. More than four years ago, Trump tweeted out some thoughts on Kate Middleton sunbathing in the nude and his thoughts on her looks. Back in those pre-Trump presidency days of 2012, Trump wasn't commenting on any old celebrity caught in a nude photo leak — Middleton is the Duchess of Cambridge aka the wife of Prince William whose grandmother is Queen Elizabeth. Like we said, awkward. The sunbathing incident Trump was tweeting about refers to photograp
