The Queen's look of horror at Turkish first lady's footwear ( 23 November 2011) One always hopes one’s guests will be comfortable. But sometimes they don’t do themselves any favours. As the Queen greeted the first lady of Turkey yesterday, she couldn’t help an admonishing glance at her guest’s six-inch platform shoes. Hayrunnisa Gul, wife of Turkey’s president, tottered gingerly on to the red carpet as she and her husband arrived for lunch at Buckingham Palace. The Queen, in her usual sensible court shoes, appeared somewhat taken aback by her glamorous guest’s footwear. Maybe she was worried about Mrs Gul tripping up on the carpet. Or fretting how she would manage all the stairs in the palace, which has few lifts. No matter. Mrs Gul is something of a stilleto expert. In September s

Britain's Got Talent 2017: Prince Harry admits Queen's an avid viewer, past winner reveals BRITAIN'S GOT TALENT winner Richard Jones exclusively revealed that the Queen watched his winning performance during last year's finals of the ITV show. Speaking exclusively to Express co uk, the magician revealed his pride at performing for the Royals in both a magic and military capacity. He explained: "I've performed for the Royal family loads of times with my role in the army, but the Royal Variety was the first time doing it with magic. "I did see Prince Harry a few weeks after the final and he said he watched the semi-final when I was performing. He said he watched the final on YouTube because he missed it.

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.

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

A documentary that looks back to the furore caused by Princess Margaret's affair with Peter Townsend, a divorced commoner. Billed as a constitutional crisis, Margaret's dilemma was the first modern royal scandal which would shape the future of royal relations with the media. In 1955 she chose to sacrifice love for duty by ending the affair, but new evidence presented here suggests that hers was a needless sacrifice. Tags: Margaret, Princess, Princess Margaret
