Queen asks portrait painter to move an AERIAL so she can watch the horses SHE is well known for her passionate involvement in the equine world, particularly when it comes to the prowess of her own race horses. And it seems nothing will stop the Queen when it comes to making sure her much-loved thoroughbreds triumph. Her Majesty politely asked a famous portrait painter to reposition a TV aerial so she could watch a race while being captured on canvas, it emerged yesterday. Bernard Hailstone was a celebrated painter but his reputation did not stop the Queen from getting him to move the aerial so she could watch the action during the sitting at Buckingham Palace. Mr Hailstone’s son Donovan said: “My father was painting the Queen at Buckingham Palace and she asked him: ‘Would you mind i

A million people have signed an online petition calling for Donald Trump’s state visit to the U.K. be called off following the U.S. president’s immigration ban targeting Muslim-majority countries. There are 10 times the signatures needed to trigger an almost-automatic debate in Parliament. Graham Guest, a lawyer from Leeds, northern England, started the initiative that went viral and at one point was garnering 1,000 signatures every minute: “Donald Trump’s well documented misogyny and vulgarity disqualifies him from being received by her majesty the Queen or the Prince of Wales,” the petition said. Prime Minister Theresa May last week became the first foreign leader to meet Trump since he became leader, announcing that he would travel to London later this year on a personal invitation

Queen to reveal intimate papers that promise to shed new light on Royal Family history The Queen is today opening up to the world a treasure trove of intimate papers that promise to shed new light on the Royal Family's history. The formerly private papers deal with royal scandals, triumphs and disasters, giving the inside track on palace life, from political intrigue to the secrets of palace live affairs including a prince's romance with an actress. The prince and actress in question, however, are not Harry and Meghan Markle but George III's son and heir, later George IV, and Mary Darby Robinson, who in 1780 was paid £5,000 by the King when she threatened to go to the newspapers with letters from her lover about the affair. George III agreed to pay her off to "get my son out of this s

Duke and Duchess of Cambridge plant huge HEDGE for privacy at Kensington Palace The Royal Household is preparing for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's move to Kensington Palace by planting a hedge blocking the view of neighbours in Billionaires' Row. It's hardly the most neighbourly of things to do but the inhabitants of Kensington Palace Gardens, one of the world's most expensive streets, have just discovered the price of living next door to the royal residence. Earlier this week, a team of gardeners with shovels and mechanical diggers began planting a 250-metre long solid wall of conifers along the western boundary of the palace grounds in an effort to screen the buildings and gardens from prying eyes in the neighbouring street. Long nicknamed Billionaires' Row, Kensington Palace...

It seems the uk really, really doesn't want Trump to meet the Queen. This is what it's like when British people tell you, politely but firmly, to bugger off. A petition demanding the uk government prevent U.S. President Donald Trump from making a state visit because it would be an "embarrassment" for him to meet Queen Elizabeth II has been signed 861,658 times. "Donald Trump's well documented misogyny and vulgarity disqualifies him from being received by Her Majesty the Queen or the Prince of Wales," the petition reads. Trump was invited to come for a state visit after he met with Prime Minister Theresa May in Washington D.C. on Friday, but his far-reaching Muslim travel ban has caused outrage on the other side of the Atlantic. Sadiq Khan, London's first Muslim mayor, spoke out agai...
