Marshmallows toasting on an open fire. Rosy cheeks and cosy jumpers. Squeals of laughter and loving glances. Wellies and utility jackets. Hearty walks and hide-and-seek in the bushes. Distant waves on the horizon. And, of course, the Duchess of Cambridge looking simply smashing in a fedora. This is the new video released by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to mark their tenth wedding anniversary. A charming portrait of family life, set in the garden of their home in Norfolk and the sand dunes nearby. Hard to believe it’s ten years. It feels like longer, or it does to me at any rate. I think that’s in large part to do with the fact that they’ve become so much a part of the royal landscape, such a constant, consistent presence, it’s really quite hard to imagine the monarchy without them. more videos 1 2 3 Watch video Two women take on Channel 5's 10 years younger challenge Watch video Hilarious … [Read more...] about SARAH VINE: Eat your heart out Harry and Meghan, the Cambridges’ slick new home movie is a touch of Boden, but utterly charming
Anneka Rice has revealed that she was targeted by a flasher in the 80s. The TV star, 62, explained how she was walking along the riverbank when a man jumped out at her and 'fumbled around down there' - but she was not offended by the act but found it "charming." The Treasure Hunt legend shared that then the man was shocked to look up and see it was her famous face he was flashing at and ran off - which led to her shouting an apology, even though he was being indecent. Speaking on the Richard Herring's Leicester Square Theatre Podcast, Anneka recalled: "I once got flashed on the riverbank. "This man flashed me - this was quite a couple of decades ago in the 80s - and he flashed me and was fumbling around down there flashing me."

The United Kingdom is facing growing challenges to the Union, claim experts, amid Scotland’s angling for a second shot at independence , simmering loyalist tensions in Northern Ireland over the Irish Sea border post-Brexit, and rising nationalist sentiments in Wales. Forceful sanguinity and injections of cash could be part of the “Project Love” approach the UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson will opt for in dealing with the fast-growing pressures that threaten the union, suggests Alister Jack, the UK’s secretary of state for Scotland.

PIERS Morgan has slammed a 'sickening woke campaign' that turned Snow White's Prince Charming into a 'predator'. The former Good Morning Britain presenter , 56, fumed about the row over the iconic kiss from the Disney movie - which campaigners claim was "without consent." A theme park in Anaheim, California is welcoming visitors for the first time since before the covid-19 pandemic began and it came under fire due to its revamped Snow White ride. The attraction, which is called the 'Enchanted Wish' ride, formerly known as Snow White’s Scary Adventures, features the classic kiss from the Prince, dubbed "true love’s kiss".

'Medha had been so alive, smiling in the pictures she posted on Facebook and the comments she left on my profile page. I did not think she would leave us so soon.' Aseem Chhabra pays tribute to Medha Jalota. A few years ago, I went to New Jersey to interview Medha Gujral Jalota. She was with her ghazal singer husband Anup Jalota, who had a concert in the hotel where I met them. The trip had actually been planned to get Medha a kidney transplant. A donor had been found in India. He was a cousin of Anup ji , but doctors in New York had said he was not a perfect match. There was disappointment, but Medha, who had been living with two collapsed kidneys and new heart that she received a few years earlier, seemed strong willed. She had the desire to live and she wanted to speak to the Indian-American community through India Abroad -- the newspaper Rediff.com owns in America -- to see if anyone was willing to donate their kidney, in case there was a perfect match. … [Read more...] about ‘Medha Jalota was beautiful and very charming’
