Prince William and Duchess Catherine: Their social media accounts are on a hiatus
Prince William, 38, is president of the UK’s highest-ranking football association – and angry. He will support the entire football community and will not post anything on Instagram and Twitter at the weekend, he tweeted. What’s it all about? With the boycott, football, rugby and cricket players in Great Britain want to denounce racism and discrimination on online communication platforms. The entire protest action lasts from Friday to Monday, the Premier League is even silent until Tuesday.
Prince William has been fighting racism for a long time. This year he spoke out loudly in February to address the disrespectful and hurtful tone of fans in football. Even an emergency meeting with industry leaders was called to resolve the issue.

Further rapprochement between the Sussexes and the Cambridges
After Prince Harry, 36, Prince William, 38, and Duchess Catherine, 39, were seen amicably talking at the funeral service for Prince Philip, 99, there is now a new “peace sign”: Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan, 39, wished the Cambridges all the best for their 10th wedding anniversary. A spokesman for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex confirmed to Bazaar.com that the Montecito couple had sent private greetings to England. It is unclear whether the message was via phone, video call, or written note.
The latest reports on the mood in the Windsor House have been contradicting itself. On the one hand, it was reported that the royals gave Prince Harry a frosty reception on his flying visit to mark the death of his grandfather. On the other hand, talks between Prince Charles, 72, and his sons are reported, which were at least interpreted as “baby steps” towards reconciliation.

“There’s not much going on”: That’s how the Queen’s great-grandson feels
Mike Tindall, 42, chats from his everyday life with a newborn: He and his wife Zara Tindall, 39, welcomed their third child in March of this year. Now the rugby player reveals in his podcast “The Good, The Bad & The Rugby” how the first weeks with son Lucas Philip went. The triple dad doesn’t seem to bother: “It’s not busy. Just a newborn, a month old, the same old stuff. Feeding, wiping your bum, but otherwise all is well.”
Tindall had already announced the birth of his son on March 21, 2021 in his podcast. He reported that the birth had gone so quickly that they had not made it to the hospital: “It was run to the gym, get a mat, go to the bathroom, put the mat on the floor, put the towels down, hold on, hold on, hold on . ” The family of five now seems to be able to cope well with everyday life.

Queen Elizabeth: Not a big celebration in June 2021
Usually all of London is turned upside down on the second Saturday in June every year: the traditional military parade “Trooping the Color” is held in honor of Queen Elizabeth. Thousands of people gather outside Buckingham Palace and along The Mall to Horse Guards Parade to watch the royal family and the military hoopla. The highlight: The royals appear on the balcony of the palace and wave. As in 2020, “Trooping the Color” will also be canceled in 2021, the palace announced in mid-March. The reason, of course: the coronavirus.
The most beautiful moments of the royal event
The new plan calls for a small parade to take place at Windsor Castle on June 12, 2021. We already know this replacement scenario from last year. However, the information for this year’s celebration is not official. The allegedly involved “Scot Guards” regiment apparently prematurely published the date and location on Twitter and deleted it again.
