The Queen has returned to London for a very important reason

Getty ImagesThe royals have to be the most talked-about family in the world, with the Mountbatten-Windsors making news for everything from Kate Middleton’s new Hold Still photography book and Princess Charlotte’s birthday portraits to the news that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have become YouTubers. The Queen is understandably more talked-about than most of her relatives, with the monarch famed for her sharp wit, sweet bonds with family members and her Queen-worthy perks (from having someone to wear in her shoes to banning this food from her kitchen). Her Majesty has been keeping a low profile following the tragic death of her husband Prince Philip, with reports that the monarch will now reside in Windsor Castle full time. This week, Queen Elizabeth made headlines as sh...

The Queen wore one of her favourite brooches to open Parliament

HRH Queen Elizabeth II returned to London yesterday, marking her first public appearance yesterday since Prince Philip‘s funeral, to attend the State Opening of Parliament. She made her annual speech from the The Sovereign’s Throne in the House of Lords chamber, talking through the Government’s Agenda for the year. The Queen wore her signature bright colours, this time a blue and gold ensemble embroidered with flowers, to match her hat. She is thought to have last worn it to Ascot in 2919. The monarch is of course known for her extensive brooch collection, and this outing she showcased one of her finest. She last wore this set for her VE Day speech last year, and it was originally a gift from her parents for her 18th birthday in 1944. They are of an art deco design and...

Queen Elizabeth II Giggles While Reflecting on Award She Received as a Teen

Royal on duty! Queen Elizabeth II reflected on earning the Life Saving Award as a teenager, calling it a “great achievement” at such a young age. Queen Elizabeth II: She’s Just Like Us! Read article “It was all done in the bath club, in the swimming pool,” the queen, 95, said during a video chat with the Royal Life Saving Society on Thursday, May 6. “I suppose, I didn’t actually realize what I was doing. I think I must’ve been 12 or something, 14. It’s a very long time along, I’m afraid.” Her Majesty, who received her junior respiration award in 1941, smirked before adding, “I think it’s changed a lot.” After one of the patrons pointed out that it was in fact 80 years ago that Elizabeth got her medal, she giggled and said, “It’s terrible, isn’t it?” Queen Elizabe...

Miley Cyrus Should Be Crowned '80s Prom Queen For Her Sheer Feathered SNL Dress

Miley Cyrus is pretty in pink. During the singer's Saturday Night Live performance of "Plastic Hearts" on May 8, she opted for a sheer and feathery gown that goes beyond your average red carpet look. The 16Arlington dress features a layered skirt ruffle detailing around the neckline, fit for an '80s prom queen. Given her rock 'n' roll style lately, this feels stylishly spot-on. Miley wore a similarly feathered look from the same designer while promoting the SNL episode last week. She also gave social media followers a closer look at her performance ensemble on Instagram, when she shared a photo with host Elon Musk's partner, Grimes. There's certainly nothing like these outfits! Get a closer look in the performance video and photos, ahead. Related: ...

The Queen has paid a special tribute to Prince William and Kate Middleton

Getty ImagesThe Cambridges are undoubtedly one of the most talked-about families in the world, and Prince William and Kate Middleton never fail to make headlines. From Kate Middleton’s handy face mask trick to the news that the Duke and Duchess are hiring an important new role for their team, the Cambridge couple make non-stop news, especially since their relocation to Kensington Palace. This week however, it was the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s marriage that got the world talking as they celebrated their 10-year anniversary. Marking the day, Prince William and Kate Middleton posted a home video of their family – and it’s more heart-warming than a John Lewis advert. Holding hands on the beach, laughing and toasting marshmallows – it’s all there ...

The Queen kept Philip close to her heart in her first appearance without him

This has been a busy week for royals, with the Cambridge family having a special day out, before Kate and Will celebrating their 10th wedding anniversary. Queen Elizabeth II also made her first official appearance since the loss of her husband, Prince Philip. She dialled into Buckingham Palace from her current home in Windsor Castle, to welcome dignitaries from different countries. Although she has stopped wearing black (it’s thought the Royal mourning period is now over), she still paid tribute to the Duke through her favourite jewellery choice: her brooch. The piece in question is the diamond rose brooch by Cartier, which is a sweet nod to her couple’s wedding day in 1947. It was part of an extravagant set given to her by Asaf Jah VII, the Nizam of Hyderabad. At the time, ...
