It was a deeply unpleasant time and I wouldn’t want to put my worst enemy through it," she said. "But the children came and went as normal – they just got on with it – and so did great friends. Camilla says she passed the time reading and learning to paint. "I couldn’t really go anywhere," she said. As she approaches her 70th birthday in July, Camilla spoke about her relationship with the Prince of Wales and the

Prince William and Kate showed their love of sports as they attended the Wales vs France Six Nations rugby match on Saturday.

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...
