King Charles decided not to go on a ski trip
For 45 years, King Charles, 74, has been skiing in Klosters in Switzerland in February or March, but this year he is canceling his traditional winter vacation. The reason: Charles wants to make sure he’s in tip-top shape for his coronation ceremony on May 6, a source tells Britain’s The Sun newspaper.
“There are many factors that play a role, not least it’s a bad look to go skiing during the cost of living crisis and the king is not a swanky person,” says the insider, emphasizing: “Besides, a skiing accident would be a disaster.”
Nevertheless, the monarch is said to have planned his first foreign visits to France and Germany in March before his coronation. However, this has not yet been confirmed by Buckingham Palace.

Mike Tindall meets his ‘second wife’ for an intimate date
Does Zara approve of this excursion from everyday marriage? Mike Tindall, 44, appears to be on the loose. The former rugby pro met for a little tryst on Saturday 4 February 2023 – and his date is no stranger. Sue Cleaver, 59, is Princess Anne’s son-in-law, 72, when he appeared on British TV show ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’ caught his eye and won his heart. An enchanting love story that seems to continue even after the end of the format.
But Zara Tindall, 41, doesn’t really have to worry. “Lovely clandestine lunch with one of my husbands,” Sue comments on the selfie with the supposed Casanova, adding jokingly, “Sorry the rest of you, your time will come.” The all clear can be given! The two radiant “lovebirds” did not enter into a spicy liaison during their time together in the Australian jungle, but formed a close friendship around the campfire.
Fans are thrilled at the surprise reunion of the self-proclaimed “camp couple.” A user writes with delight: “It’s nice to see that you two stay in touch outside of the jungle.” Another is happy: “It’s nice that you stayed friends.” Zara, meanwhile, can sit back and relax: Luckily her lover didn’t find a new flame during his rustic TV trip, but apparently “only” a friend for life.

Prince Harry: Surprise appearance at the Grammys – although he shone with his absence
The crème de la crème of show business presented themselves at this year’s Grammy Awards in 2023. And although Prince Harry, 38, did not crown the event with his presence, he caused hearty laughter. Responsible for the unintended star appearance of the royal was Trevor Noah, 38, who made fun of the new author from the highest British circles with thieving pleasure. The comedian made his cheeky joke as he called British late-night presenter James Corden, 44, onto the stage to present an award. He said: “James Corden is a 12-time Emmy winner and host of The Late Late Show. He’s also living proof that a man can move from London to LA and not have to tell everyone about his frozen penis.”
The net immediately went wild: “I bet Harry didn’t expect THAT,” joked one Twitter user. “Oh snap! Harry is not having a good week,” quipped another. And a third added: “Harry has braced himself for comedic fodder.” Well, as the saying goes, whoever has the damage does not need to worry about the ridicule. After all, King Charles’ youngest son, 74, had himself in his memoir titled ‘Spare’ [deutscher Titel: “Reserve”] revealed intimate details about his frostbite injury to his privates following a North Pole expedition. And a royal fan seems to have hope that Queen Elizabeth’s grandson, † 96, acknowledged his involuntary appearance at the famous music award with a laugh. “I’m sure Harry would have found it funny. He has a good sense of humor.”
King Charles and Queen Camilla receive new thrones for the coronation ceremony
The countdown is running! King Charles, 74, and Queen Camilla, 75, will be crowned in three months. For the ceremony, the monarch and his wife should each have their own throne made, following tradition. “There is always a new throne for a new monarch and this will be no exception,” a palace insider told the Daily Mail. King Charles’ new throne is to be adorned with the Tudor crown, in contrast to Queen Elizabeth, †96’s logo, which wore St Edward’s Crown.
However, during the coronation and anointing portion of the ceremony, the Regent will be seated in the historic coronation chair. This was commissioned by King Edward I in 1296 and Charles will be the 27th monarch to be crowned on it. It is believed to be the oldest piece of furniture in Britain still in use for its original purpose.
