Princess Diana
Is Charles locked in a Battle Royal with Carole over George? Where's Mrs Middleton, whisper the courtiers amid rumours she is being frozen out by a Prince begrudging her control of the grandchildren Prince Charles said to feel 'edged out' over time spent with grandchildren The Royal 'believes the Middletons get their fair share of time with them' Carole and Michael have missed Royal engagements like Ascot Source added Charles wants a closer relationship with Prince William Sharing a joke with the Royals at Ascot or taking centre stage aboard a steamer for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee pageant on the Thames, there was a time when the Middletons were pretty much inescapable. There could be no mistaking the message: this ordinary – if rather affluent – family was a new and most welcome addi

Against Meghan Markle, her bona fides: American, divorced, TV series actress, three years older than her prince boyfriend, bi-racial, from a family subject to eyebrow-raising incidents such as the half brother's recent arrest for threatening his girlfriend at gunpoint during a drunken argument. Markle is well-versed in a number of issues that appear in her blog including traveling to exotic places, being fashionable and doing philanthropic work In her favor, a number of examples of the Royal family breaking the rules of tradition for love - the most famous and closest to Prince Harry's case is that of his great-grand uncle, Edward VIII, Duke of Windsor, who abdicated the British throne for another American, divorced, commoner Wallis Simpson. There's also the well-known story, especial...

Prince Harry Girlfriend Meghan Markle Is Facing A Very Hard Time Of Her Life Where Her Relationship Might Be Badly Effected

Prince Harry
Boozing, bust-ups and bankruptcies: Meet Meghan Markle's family, Prince Harry! They have been together just a few short months and, so far, Prince Harry's girlfriend Meghan Markle has shown herself to be the model of grace, elegance and cast-iron discretion. Sadly, the same cannot be said of her extended family. Indeed, the House of Markle is a disputatious, motley collection of individuals who, between them, have a long record of boozing, bust-ups and bankruptcies, the Daily Mail reported. Only last weekend it emerged that her half-brother, Thomas Junior, had spent the night in police cells in Oregon after being arrested for allegedly holding a gun to his girlfriend's head. He was twice the legal alcohol limit for driving and faces up to five years in jail if convicted. So who's who ...

The British Royal family live their lives in the public eye, but there’s one thing about them that not a lot of people know: Their last name.

Queen Elizabeth
The INSIDER Summary: • Before 1917, the British royal family had no last name at all. • That year, King George V decreed that the family surname would be Windsor. • Today's royals still don't need a last name, but it's technically Mountbatten-Windsor, a blend of the Queen and her husband's surnames. • Other royals use their family's territorial designation (like Wales or York) as a last name. The British Royal family live their lives in the public eye, but there's one thing about them that not a lot of people know: Their last name. That's simply because, in general, they don't need a last name. They're so famous that they're easily identifiable without one. But when members of the royal family need to use a last name — when they're in school or in the military, for example — they

Duchess Catherine
The Duchess of Cambridge celebrates her 35th birthday today. Kate is expected to mark the occasion privately with the Duke of Cambridge and her children Prince George and Princess Charlotte, ahead of her first public engagements of the new year. There were no clues about how she would spend her special day when she appeared with the Royal Family at church in Sandringham on Sunday where the Queen was in attendance for the first time since a heavy cold kept her away from services over the festive period. Kate, wearing a grey furry hat and a forest green coat and black heels, walked the short distance to the church with smartly-dressed William. But there was no sign of George or Charlotte. The rest of the Middleton family, Kate's sister Pippa, mother Carole, father Michael and brother J...

Her Majesty The Queen
The Queen's full house: Kate and William to join 29 other royal guests for Christmas lunch PRINCESS Charlotte is to spend her first Christmas with the Queen and the rest of the Royal Family after her parents decided to give their hard-working staff a festive break. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their children will be among 31 guests of Her Majesty and Prince Philip for Christmas Day lunch at Sandringham. They will also spend the night at the royal residence in Norfolk.
