Mike Tindall refused Princess Anne’s request
On July 30, 2022, Zara, 41, and Mike Tindall, 43, were married at Canongate Kirk in Edinburgh, Scotland. Before her dream wedding, her mother-in-law Princess Anne, 71, reportedly advised her to have nose surgery. The reason: During his professional rugby career, he reportedly broke his nose at least eight times, making it slightly crooked. “That was a funny, jocular remark. It was okay. Look at my nose – can you blame it?” Mike joked afterwards. However, he was unable to fulfill Anne’s wish at the time as an operation would have disrupted his training schedule – after all, he was still a rugby player at the time.

Against Prince William’s wishes: Diana’s BBC interview rebroadcast
The Panorama interview, which Princess Diana, † 36, was scandalously persuaded to by BBC presenter Martin Bashir in 1995, is still making waves today. Prince William, 40, in particular, has gotten angry in the past and demanded that the material not be aired again. “I strongly believe that this Panorama program has no legitimacy and should never be broadcast again,” William said in May 2021. “It has established a false narrative that has been marketed by the BBC and others for over ‘a quarter century.”
The BBC has since apologized for the interview, compensated those involved and promised not to broadcast the entire programme. He urged other broadcasters to “exercise similar restraint”. But nothing will come of it for the moment. Extracts from the discredited interview are said to be featured in the new documentary ‘The Princess’, which will air on Sky and NOW TV next month. In it, the 40-year-old late mother describes her marriage, how the monarchy should change and that she believed a campaign of hate was being waged against her.
Prince Charles: Is it so bad for the environment?
Prince Charles, 73, actually has a reputation as an environmentalist. However, as “Express” reports, the Royal also likes to fly to environmental events with his private helicopter. He and his wife, Duchess Camilla, 75, took more than 40 private flights last year to events like the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Glasgow.
For many readers of the British newspaper, this behavior is unacceptable. As one person wrote, “I’m sick of these people preaching one thing and then doing the complete opposite. When they start practicing what they preach, I start listening.” However, a few users also campaigned for the Royal. “Yes, they seem to be hypocritical about their private flights, but in his defense, he and his staff do a lot for wildlife, like wildflower meadows, creating hedges, planting trees, etc.”

Duchess Camilla learns a lot from her grandchildren
Duchess Camilla, 74, is an avid bookworm, has her own book club and is patron of Silver Stories, a charity that encourages young people to read to older people. During a visit to Charlestown School in St. Austell, Charles’ wife, 74, recently shared a cute detail about her personal life. She apparently enjoys reading with her grandchildren and seems to learn a lot from them.
Reading is “the basis of learning”, she said, according to “Express” in an interview with Dame Esther Ranstzen, administrator of the charity. “You can see the joy the listeners feel listening to the kids – it’s the highlight of their week,” Camilla said, adding, “The beauty of being a grandma is that you learn from them and, hopefully she got a few things from us too.”

Prince William bids farewell to Anton Mzimba
Prince William, 40, speaks with a personal message on the internet: Ranger Anton Mzimba has been murdered. A sad day for the heir to the British throne. “I am deeply saddened by the murder of Anton Mzimba, with whom I spoke in November. Dedicated and courageous rangers like Anton are at the heart of conserving Africa’s incredible wildlife. accounts quickly. My thoughts are with his family . W,” William wrote on his official Twitter account. Within minutes, several testimonies of condolences were collected under the post.
Queen Elizabeth: Pope Francis sends a message of greeting
Queen Elizabeth, 96, was certainly very “amused” when she opened her letterbox at Balmoral Castle, where she is currently spending her summer holidays. None other than Pope Francis, 85, sent a personal message to the monarch. BBC Editor-in-Chief Aleem Maqbool has revealed the kind message Pope Francis wrote on a flight to Canada via Twitter.
“As I fly via the UK en route to Canada, I send my best wishes to Your Majesty, the Royal Family and all people of the Kingdom. I pray that Almighty God bless you with his gifts of strength, joy and may bless peace,” the 85-year-old said. Twitter users are touched and excited by the church leader’s kind gesture. So it will certainly have happened to the Queen.

Prince George: That’s his nickname at school
Prince George, 9, is third in line to the British throne and will one day become King of England. The first-born of Prince William, 40, and Duchess Catherine, 40, is still an (almost) normal pupil at Thomas’s Battersea School in south-west London. But what do her classmates actually call the royal offspring? Royal Highness? Prince George? George of Cambridge?
Reportedly, his classmates have a cute nickname for the prince, who celebrated his ninth birthday a few days ago. As reported by The Sun, he is simply called “PG”, after the initials of “Prince George”. And apparently that name resonates with his family as well. Supposedly, the nickname ‘PG’ or even ‘PG Tips’ based on a British tea brand also caught on with Prince William and Duchess Catherine.
Officially, his name at school is George Cambridge. It is customary for royal children to use their parents’ first name and title as their surname at school. Thus, his siblings are also listed in the school register under Charlotte Cambridge and Louis Cambridge. Following the same tradition, Prince William and Prince Harry, 37, were called by the surname Wales when they went to school, as their father bears the title of Prince of Wales.
Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry: Generous donation on behalf of their children
Prince Harry, 37, and Duchess Meghan, 40, donated $5,000 to a GoFundMe fundraiser on behalf of their children Archie, 3, and Lilibet, 1, according to online documentation from the donations. The fund was created in the name of the Los Angeles Zajfen family, who tragically lost their nine-year-old son, George. Donations will go to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles in honor of the deceased boy.
On Friday, July 22, 2022, Kelly McKee Zajfen, 42, took to Instagram to share the sudden death of her young son with heartbreaking words. “My lovely baby boy. My world has shattered into a million pieces. I can barely breathe. Walk. Run. Sit. Stand. You were the light in my life. Your smile made the room so bright and your heart was the most perfect and sweetest,” the grieving mother said. “You left this earth and left behind so many people who loved you. I don’t know how to move on. How to function. How to be the light and have joy again, but I will try. Give, I’m trying hard for your beautiful twin sister I can’t understand everything.
Kelly McKee Zajfen is a former model and co-founder of the Alliance of Moms, a community of philanthropists in Los Angeles that supports pregnant and orphaned teens in the Los Angeles foster care system. She also runs an eco-conscious children’s clothing brand.
It’s not yet clear what his connection to Meghan and Harry is, but the Duchess of Sussex’s ex-husband Trevor Engelson, 45, and his wife Tracey Kurland have also donated $1,000, suggesting the Zajfen family are old friends of the former couple.

Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice fear for royal future
Bad air in the British royal family! As royal expert Neil Sean claims in his YouTube video, a new row is brewing in the Royal Family – and this time Prince William, 40, is the center of attention. “There’s a big story going on in the royal family that has largely gone unnoticed, and it has to do with Prince William, the Duchess of Cambridge, and William’s father, Prince Charles,” Sean said. He continues: “According to very good sources, Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice appear to be struggling to stay on good terms with Prince William, Catherine and Charles. This has to do with the agreement that William, the Queen and Prince Charles concluded to relieve her father, Prince Andrew, of his royal duties after he had fallen out of favor in recent years.”
While Prince William and Prince Charles, 73, believe Prince Andrew, 62, should continue to avoid all royal duties in the future, his daughters are trying to involve him in their charities. Charles and William were anything but thrilled about this. Another point of contention would be Prince Charles’ plan to downsize the monarchy when he becomes king. So far it is unclear what stance Princess Eugenie, 32, and Princess Beatrice, 33, will take – a scenario that appears to be scaring the sisters and causing a lot of explosives behind the palace walls.
