Princess Eugenie: Happy Birthday Greetings to Husband Jack
Their love for each other is literally glowing on their faces: Princess Eugenie, 32, posts two adorable selfies on the evening of her husband Jack Brooksbank’s 36th birthday. The private snapshots impressively demonstrate that two people have found each other here who want to put up with each other for a long time to come.
“Happy birthday my Jack,” Queen Elizabeth’s granddaughter, 96, congratulated her sweetheart. “36 years today, what a journey it has been so far, I can’t wait for so many more,” she comments on the two photos that the couple apparently actually shows on adventures together. Whether in a beautiful garden and under palm trees with protective sunglasses or on a flight together with masks compulsory: Eugenie and Jack read the love for each other from their radiant facial expressions. This dream couple will explore the world together for many years to come.
Prince Harry: Will the Duke of Kent put the Queen’s grandson in his place with his memoirs?
Prince Harry, 37, is expected to publish his memoir in the fall of 2022. His late mother Princess Diana, † 36, is said to be the focus of the memories. Royal fans are eagerly awaiting the early autobiography, secretly hoping for some sensitive digs at the royal relatives in England. Surprisingly, however, another member of the family reports with a life review: Prince Edward, the Duke of Kent, 86, is the grandson of Queen Elizabeth, 96, a step ahead.
The English historian and author Jane Ridley has already looked at Edward’s treatise on life as part of the royal family and, in an article for the Telegraph, comes to a not very surprising conclusion: “The duke’s example of a royal life that dedicated to understated service stands in stark contrast to Harry’s career as a prominent prince.” The Duke’s findings are “impeccable” and not designed to reveal scandals. However, Ridley reads in it a “hidden accusation against Prince Harry”.
Prince Edward’s memoirs look at the monarch’s reign – a first! Never before has a family member written about Queen Elizabeth’s reign. How Prince Harry, on the other hand, will outline his grandmother or his brother Prince William, 39, and stepmother Duchess Camilla, 74, will only be revealed to the curious readers in a few months. Prince Charles’ youngest son, 73, has only announced “a first-hand account of [s]to create a life that is accurate and entirely truthful”.
Prince William + Duchess Catherine: Your dog listens to this suitable name
The Cambridges were deeply saddened by the death of their dog Lupo in November 2020. He has been part of the family since 2012. However, just before Lupo passed away, James Middleton, 35, gave birth to a new black Cocker Spaniel to his sister Duchess Catherine, 40, husband Prince William, 39, and children Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 7, and Prince Louis, 4. The pretty dog also makes her grand entrance in one of the photos published for Princess Charlotte’s seventh birthday. With her in her arms, the seven-year-old beams happily at the camera with a small gap in her teeth.
Many details were not previously known about the youngest member of the Cambridge family. Now, however, the bitch’s name has been revealed. According to media reports, Orla is a Celtic name that translates to “Golden Princess”. The name could hardly be more appropriate for a member of the British royal family.

Prince Harry joins California polo team
He gave up this passion for a long time. Prince Harry, 37, has rarely sat in the saddle since moving to the United States. Now he can finally indulge in his favorite sport again. The Royal has joined a new polo team at the Santa Barbara Polo Club, The Sun reports. There, Queen Elizabeth’s grandson, 96, receives well-known support: his longtime friend Ignacio “Nacho” Figueras, 45, is his teammate.
How happy he was about Harry’s comeback on Friday, April 29, 2022 on the match field could be seen in a cheerful post on the Argentine polo player’s Instagram channel. Commenting on a team photo with the royals, the professional said: “I’m thrilled to be riding alongside my friend Prince Harry and the rest of the Los Padres team at the @santabarbarapoloclub’s Harry East Memorial Tournament.”
The two friends are no longer only connected by their enthusiasm for the sport, but also by other parallels in their biographies. “We have ridden together many times over the years and now that we are both parents it is very special to be able to spend that time together,” said the father of four. For this reason, among other things, the funny naming of the prominent team was created. “The Los Padres name was inspired by the field’s proximity to Los Padres National Forest and also by our connection as fathers,” explained Figueras. The enchanting tribute to the apparently fulfilling family status of the friends will certainly also have pleased Duchess Meghan, 40, who was spotted as an enthusiastic spectator when her husband restarted on the polo field.
Queen Elizabeth: She plans to travel to Scotland more often in the future to unite the country
After Queen Elizabeth has recently drawn attention to her health condition, things now seem to be going uphill again for the 96-year-old. Because, as several employees of the British royal family confirmed, the monarch is planning to take part in public events again. The Queen would like to travel to Scotland more often in the future, in order to show the Scottish people that they are appropriately represented by her.
“The country and Balmoral were an incredibly important part of her life. She has always insisted that she is Queen of the whole of the UK,” a palace insider told The Sun. But for years there have been attempts in Scotland to lead the country to independence – so far in vain. The last correct vote took place in 2014. Most Scots, however, opted against independence and for Queen Elizabeth’s leadership – much to their delight. While the 96-year-old is banned from speaking publicly about political decisions, a source said she “rejects Scottish independence and welcomes the decision of the Scottish people”.
