Pack your fine china: Prince Harry is set to host his first garden party at Buckingham Palace Sorry, invite only. Fresh from his recent charity work at the Audi Polo Challenge, Prince Harry is out and about again, doing more good.

The event - on Tuesday, May 30 - will see guests, including 2300 veterans, enjoy afternoon tea in the Palace gardens. Charity work is something Harry's very passionate about - following in his mother Diana's philanthropic footsteps. The P...

Sealed with a kiss: Meghan Markle cheers Prince Harry on at the Polo Not even galloping horses could come between these lovebirds. Onlookers were treated to a view of Meghan, who proudly stood in the royal box, watching the game unfold. The Suits starlet looked stunning in a navy dress teamed with a white blazer and a pair of sunnies. The ginger-haired royal was all smiles during the outing and we're guessing it has something to do with that kiss he got moments before the match. The couple had no qualms enjoying their passionate carpark embrace - a clear sign that they're very serious about one another. The good luck kiss must have worked with Prince Harry and Prince William's team winning the match. During the game, Meghan hung out with Harry's good friend Mark ...

Heart Breaking Moment: The Prince paid a surprise visit to Ollie on Tuesday

Prince Harry
In photos reminiscent of his late mother Princess Diana, Prince Harry showed his caring side as he embraced a seriously ill boy in his arms. Harry was visiting young patient Ollie Carroll in hospital when he reached out and held the boy. The pair had met before at the WellChild Awards last October, and earlier this week, Harry made a secret visit to the hospital to check up on Ollie and his sister Amelia, who both suffer from a rare genetic disease called Battens. Photos of the visit were posted on a Facebook page run by Ollie's parents Lucy and Mike, entitled Ollie's Army Battling Against Battens. They explained that Harry and Ollie had met last year at the awards ceremony, where Ollie, who has limited mobility, won the Most Inspirational Child Award. "What happened that day was tr...

Duchess of Cambridge's school advice charity warns against funding cuts A Mental health charity with the Duchess of Cambridge as royal patron has warned that cuts may jeopardise its work in primary and secondary schools. Place2Be, which provides therapy for bullying, bereavement and family problems, has called on the Government to continue funding educational mental health services. The National Association of Headteachers found 31 per cent of schools are cutting therapeutic services in the coming year, with 67 per cent citing funding pressures. It comes as Chris Field, headteacher of Selly Oak Trust School in Birmingham, said he was shortening the school day by half an hour as the national funding formula has imposed £3billion “savings” by 2020.

Duchess Catherine
After more than half a decade officially in the royal spotlight—and an few early unofficial years at Prince William's side—Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton is firmly taking the reins of her own royal life. After marrying Princess Diana's oldest son in 2011 and giving birth to their son, Prince George, and their daughter, Princess Charlotte, in the six years that followed, the 35-year-old has certainly been a highly-publicized staple of Britain's first family. However, as she approaches her first decade of regal life, Middleton is diving into her role headfirst arguably more so now than ever before as her husband gears up to become king and, likewise, as she awaits to be queen. Particularly, Prince William is reportedly leaving his air ambulance job this summer to focus solely on roy

For you! Duchess of Cambridge handed flowers by adorable girl at children's hospice The Duchess of Cambridge was presented with a posy of flowers by a four-year-old girl at a children's hospice run by a charity she supports as royal patron. Kate was given the flowers by Nell Cork, whose brother, Finnbar, received care at the centre, run by East Anglia's Children's Hospices (Each), in the Norfolk village of Quidenham, before he died in August last year. The Duchess, wearing emerald green, crouched down as she spoke to Nell before shaking the hand of her elder brother, Alfie, 13, and speaking to her parents, Claire and Tristan. The family, from Hethersett, near Norwich, are among those who have been helped by the hospice charity. She was greeted by dozens of flag-waving schoolchildr...

How Princess Diana’s legacy will be celebrated this year

Princess Diana
Princess Diana's legacy will be celebrated with a special exhibition at Althorp, her ancestral home, later this year. The beloved royal's brother Earl Spencer will host the event, which will feature the inspiring stories of young people who are "Walking in her Shoes" and a fundraising gala for the Diana Award in June. The exhibition, which is being organised by the charity – the only one to carry the Princess's name – is one of a series of events taking place throughout her 20th anniversary year to celebrate her qualities of kindness, compassion and service. Diana was tragically killed in a car accident on August 31, 1997, leaving behind sons Prince William, 15, and 12-year-old Prince Harry. The Princes, like their uncle Earl Spencer, are now huge supporters of the Diana Award, which
