Prince William, Kate and Prince Harry will show their support for runners at the London Marathon come race day, by standing along the route and cheering on participants. It will mark a first for the Duchess of Cambridge, who has never watched the marathon in public in her capacity as a royal.

Prince Harry’s actress girlfriend shuttered her lifestyle blog “after the queen complains.”

Prince Harry’s actress girlfriend shuttered her lifestyle blog “after the queen complains.”

Prince Harry
Meghan Markle did not shut down her website The Tig because of Queen Elizabeth. That’s the claim from a tabloid that’s been caught manufacturing a fake news story. Gossip Cop has the actual facts. OK! is busted again for making up another royal lie. This time the often discredited magazine alleges Prince Harry’s actress girlfriend shuttered her lifestyle blog “after the queen complains.” Exposing its sloppiness, the tabloid writes, “Insiders claimed that her future mother-in-law Queen Elizabeth was never a fan of her ‘cheap and common’ social media exposure.” Gossip Cop would like to know who these “insiders” are because they don’t know anything about the royals. Queen Elizabeth could never be Markle’s “future mother-in-law.” That would have been Princess Diana. Queen Elizabe

What Vimy means today, a century after the iconic battle

Her Majesty The Queen
This was not a day for dry-eyed analysis. Instead it was a day for feeling and communing with the dead, and commune we did. If the First World War was the war to end all wars then Vimy Ridge ought to have been the war monument to end all war monuments. Except it wasn’t, and it isn’t. The reality of Vimy and what it has come to mean to Canadians over the past century are two linked but separate stories. It was, as the Prince of Wales pointed out in his speech today, “the bloodiest battle in Canadian military history.” What it wasn’t, was a deterrent to further violence. Here’s a fact no one mentioned at the grand commemoration ceremony that took place on this parcel of Canadian soil in France: This glorious stone monument rising out of it into the limitless blue sky was under Hitler’s c

Prince William and Prince Harry Join Forces With Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to Honor Fallen Soldiers. Prince William, Prince Harry and Justin Trudeau came together Sunday to remember the armed forces who sacrificed their lives at the 1917 Battle of Vimy Ridge. The royal duo and the Canadian Prime Minister gathered with Prince Charles at the Vimy Memorial Park in northern France for the historic event's 100th anniversary, where the Prince of Wales as well as Trudeau delivered a speech honoring the fallen service members. Both William and Harry laid a pair of boots and poppies of remembrance at the Canadian National Vimy Memorial site during the ceremony, which was attended by an estimated 25,000. Now only a few days into the start of April, the famous Brits have ...
