French fashion icon Hubert de Givenchy has died at the age of 91.

His partner Philippe Venet, a former haute couture designer, confirmed the news to the AFP.

“It is with huge sadness that we inform you that Hubert Taffin de Givenchy has died,” he said via the fashion house.

The designer’s nephews and nieces, and their children, share Philippe Venet’s grief, his statement added.

The House of Givenchy also tweeted: “The House of Givenchy is sad to report the passing of its founder Hubert de Givenchy, a major personality of the world of French Haute Couture and a gentleman who symbolized Parisian chic and elegance for more than half a century. He will be greatly missed.”

Hubert de Givenchy created famous looks for Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly and Jackie Kennedy.

He was perhaps most famous for creating the iconic “little black dress” worn by Audrey Hepburn in the opening scene of Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

The friendship between Hubert de Givenchy and Audrey Hepburn endured for 40 years, and helped cement his place in fashion – and cinema – history.

Audrey Hepburn became his muse, and he designed her suits and woolen dresses for the musical Funny Face in 1957, and the light-hearted heist caper How to Steal a Million in 1966.

Hubert de Givenchy came from an aristocratic background, and worked alongside the then unknown Pierre Balmain and Christian Dior after World War Two.

He was employed by the avant-garde designer Elsa Schiaparelli before leaving to found his own fashion house in 1952. There he introduced the concept of “separates” – blouse, skirt, jacket and trouser combinations that could be mixed and matched.

Hubert de Givenchy, who stood at a towering 6ft 6in, won instant acclaim for his first collection at the age of 24.

He swiftly ventured into menswear, and moved to New York to consolidate his success. There his celebrity customers included First Lady Jackie Kennedy, who wore one of his designs to President John F. Kennedy’s funeral in 1963.

Grace Kelly, who would become princess of Monaco, was another famous client.

Hubert de Givenchy had asked that his friends and admirers make a donation to the children’s charity UNICEF in his memory, instead of sending flowers.


Bill Cosby’s daughter, Ensa, has died at the age of 44, a spokesman for the family says.

Ensa Cosby died from a kidney disease in Massachusetts on February 23, according to spokesman Andrew Wyatt.

In 2017, Ensa Cosby defended her father when he went on trial over allegations he drugged and assaulted a woman in 2004.

The judge declared a mistrial and a new trial will take place on April 2. Bill Cosby denies the allegations.

Ensa Cosby, who once appeared in an episode of her father’s program The Cosby Show, is reported to have had health issues in the past.

Sridevi Kapoor Dies of Accidental Bathtub Drowning

According to TMZ, which first reported her death, Ensa Cosby had been in line for a kidney transplant.

Ensa Cosby has three surviving sisters – Evin, Errin and Erika. Her brother, Ennis, was murdered in 1997 during a failed robbery attempt as he changed his car tire.

In a statement in May 2017, Ensa Cosby, a mother-of-one, said there was a racist motivation for her father’s prosecution.

She said: “My father has been publicly lynched in the media.”

Bill Cosby, 80, was accused of drugging and assaulting Andrea Constand in 2004. His lawyers had argued the act was consensual.

Dozens of women say Bill Cosby assaulted them, but statute of limitation rules mean he was allowed to be tried for Andrea Constand’s allegation only.

Bollywood star Sridevi Kapoor died of accidental drowning, a Dubai post-mortem report has said.

Sridevi Kapoor, 54, known simply as Sridevi, drowned in her hotel apartment’s bathtub following loss of consciousness, the report says.

It had earlier been reported that the actress died of cardiac arrest on February 24 while at a family wedding in Dubai.

According to the Dubai media, the post-mortem analysis had been completed and the cause of death ascertained.

The case has been passed to the Dubai Public Prosecution for what officials said were “regular legal procedures”.

Crowds have gathered outside Sridevi’s home in Mumbai to pay their last respects ahead of a cremation.

The Dubai government tweet did not reveal the results of any toxicology tests.

The full post-mortem report has not yet been made public and will be expected to explain how the original report of cardiac arrest and the listing of “accidental drowning” are linked.

Sridevi had been in the United Arab Emirates to attend the wedding of her nephew, Mohit Marwah. Few details had been given about the case prior to the release of the cause of death.

“Above all, we are determined to maintain the deep respect and love that we have for one another,” the statement added.

Michael Douglas has been accused of harassment more than a week after he issued a pre-emptive denial of the claims.

His former employee, author and journalist Susan Braudy, said the actor’s alleged treatment left her feeling “humiliated”.

Susan Braudy’ claims include that he performed an act in front of her.

Michael Douglas responded by saying: “This is a complete lie, fabrication, no truth in it whatsoever.”

The actor’s statement came 10 days before Susan Braudy’s allegations were published by The Hollywood Reporter.

Michael Douglas explained he “felt the need to get ahead” of the situation and share his concerns about the “nightmare” scenario.

Susan Braudy worked for Michael Douglas’s company Stonebridge Productions in the late 1980s.

She claims he used inappropriate language in front of her, including openly discussing extra-marital affairs, while she was running the company’s New York office.

Why Michael Douglas lied about type of cancer he had

Susan Braudy also alleges that Michael Douglas commented about her body, which made her then wear loose, dark clothing.

“I realized he thought he could do anything he wanted because he was so much more powerful than I was,” she said, adding that she ran home and vowed to never be alone with him again.

Susan Braudy finished working for the actor in 1989.

Michael Douglas, who originally spoke to Deadline, said: “I pride myself on my reputation in this business, not to mention the long history of my father and everything else.

“I don’t have skeletons in my closet, or anyone else who’s coming out or saying this. I’m bewildered why, after 32 years, this is coming out, now.”

The actor also claimed there is no evidence against him and he feared that such accusations could set back the #MeToo movement that has grown in the wake of the Hollywood harassment scandal.

Michael Douglas said: “Being accused, without a chance [to defend yourself] in court. To not even really have the information in front of you, to be able to argue or defend yourself.

“There is no due process, no chance of seeing evidence in front of me from my accuser. It worries me.”

Susan Braudy told The Hollywood Reporter she was not surprised by the way Michael Douglas had issued his denial.

She claimed the manner in which he did so was “part of the problem, as is his pretext of victimization”.

Susan Braudy added: “These are some reasons why so many women don’t come forward with their stories – Lord knows it’s taken 30 years and a movement for me to gather my courage.”

There comes a day in every man’s life when he realizes that he is ready to settle down. For me, that day came three years ago. I realized that I wanted to be a husband and a father more than hang out with friends in bars and clubs each week. Thinking about how to get a girlfriend to settle down with, I decided to become a member of a dating site. In this article I will tell you, based on my three-year experience, how to become a man can win a woman’s heart online.

Why online dating?

I think that online dating is the universal way to get a girlfriend, as people who join dating sites are searching for a romantic partner and are ready to start a new relationship. So, if you think, “I need a girlfriend now!” dating sites are the first places you should go.

Also, here people share information about themselves and their dating preferences, so you can quickly determine whether the owner of the profile is a good match for you.

Another advantage of this way of meeting people is that you can choose secure platforms where you will be protected reliably from scammers and fraudsters. And it’s very important if you are stranger to building a relationship online. Read this article to get more information about anti-scam protection – VictoriaBrides.com Review – Dating Site that Worth to Try in 2018.

Of course, you can also connect with people through sites which gather fans of a certain sport, hobby, online game, or TV show. If you are into such kind of things, you’ll probably find someone with whom you have a lot in common, but there’s no guarantee that this person will be open to a new relationship. Statistically, it’s easier to make new friends than a romantic partner on such sites.

Step one. Understand what kind of woman you are searching for

Choosing a dating site, you should understand what you are looking for. If you want to find another one-night stand or brief affair in your location, join dating apps like Tinder. If you are wondering how to find a good woman for marriage, pay attention to dating sites that focus on a meaningful relationship. Follow this link to get more information – http://datingreviewer.org/victoriabrides-review/.

If you are serious about relations, choose a woman who has the same level of attraction as yourself. Your perfect candidate should also be near your age range and share your values and interests.

Step two. Keep calm and join one of the popular online dating sites

Most single people waste a lot of time on trying to discover the reason for their loneliness. Please don’t go that way. Try to fix the situation, instead of asking yourself, “Why can’t I get a girlfriend?”

Start with creating an account on a dating site. If you don’t know how to do it, read this VictoriaBride review, in which the author clearly explains the process. The registration procedures are quite similar on different dating platforms, so this information will be helpful, even if you choose another site to join.

Here are two bits of advice I can give you:

  • Be honest when creating your dating profile. Don’t lie about your job or body type. The right woman will accept you for who you are. If you’re lying at the beginning you have a very little chance for a trustful loving relationship.
  • Describing yourself, try to be original and show your sense of humor.
  • Keep an open mind. Sometimes the profiles of your true soulmates don’t tell you that you might connect with these people. So, sometimes go chatting with women who don’t seem your best halves at first sight.

Step three. Choose the best pictures for your profile

Use a photo of good quality as a primary picture. Don’t upload a webcam one.

Groom yourself and dress up for this photo.

It’s a very important trick of how to find love online, as your profile picture as your chance to make a great first impression.

Step four. Read women’s profiles before sending the first message

What is a girlfriend? It’s a woman with whom you can build a trustful romantic relationship. So, you should have both physical and emotional connection with her. Make an effort to get to know the women you’ve met on a dating site. Start with reading their profile information. It helps you to create an original first message and allow you to stand out from hundreds of neglectful men.

Step five. Improve your communication skills

I have a friend who has never had an issue of how to find a date. He isn’t a handsome guy, but he is a perfect listener.

Show a genuine interest in your date’s life. Ask open questions and try to remember facts that your online dating partner shares with you. Treat her with respect and make compliments about the worth of her personality.

Keep in mind that it is one of the most important steps of this “How to find a girlfriend online” guideline. So, don’t be lazy. Improve your communication skills.

Step six. Take her on a date

If you are thinking of how to make a girlfriend fall in love with you, there is only one thing you should know – online communication will never replace meeting in person. Hugging, kissing, and hand-holding are the most delightful parts of a romantic relationship. So, if you’ve liked some lady, take her on a date.

Step seven. Keep trying whatever happens

Remember that only one man amongst the million is fortunate enough to meet a special woman on the first try. If you are looking for someone special online, you’ll probably meet dozens of people who are not just right for you. And it’s OK. Just keep trying – and one day you will meet the lady you have been looking for so long.

And if you need an additional motivation, just read this story – Finding style on VictoriaBrides.com in 2018.

So, now you know how to find a girlfriend on a dating site. Follow these instructions and never give up – and one day you will certainly meet your dream woman, as I did.



Craig McLachlan has denied allegations of harassment made against him by three women.

The accusations against the 52-year-old Australian actor concern his time performing in a 2014 production of the Rocky Horror Show.

Three cast members accused the former Neighbors actor of inappropriate touching and harassment.

Craig McLachlan stepped down from the Rocky Horror Show‘s current Australian run on January 8, but rejected the allegations as “entirely false”.

The actor wrote in response to allegations published by the Australian Broadcasting Corp: “Frankly, they seem to be simple inventions, perhaps made for financial reasons, perhaps to gain notoriety.”

The three actresses, Christie Whelan Browne, Erika Heynatz and Angela Scundi, said they had come forward to protect other cast members. Craig McLachlan had been reprising his role as Dr. Frank N. Furter in Adelaide.

The allegations, also published by Fairfax Media on January 8, include Craig McLachlan’s inappropriate behavior against Whelan Browne during a performance.

“I think people who know him know that he’s very generous, warm, funny… I saw a very different side come out in him which was terrifying,” Whelan Browne told the ABC.

Erika Heynatz, who played Magenta, said she was forcibly kissed by the actor, while Angela Scundi, a chorus member, said she was the subject of unwanted advances.

Two actresses raised concerns with the show’s senior producers but no action was taken, the reports said.

In a statement on January 8, the musical’s production company said it was “shocked” to learn of the accusations.

Gordon Frost Organization said in a statement: “In response, we have spoken to Craig and have mutually agreed that it is not appropriate for him to continue in the current production of the show.”

It said it would co-operate with authorities and conduct and internal investigation.

Craig McLachlan is a veteran of the Australian entertainment industry, having won Australia’s top TV award – the Gold Logie – and starred in programs including Home and Away and the Doctor Blake Mysteries.


Former President Barack Obama has been interviewed by Prince Harry on BBC Radio 4.

Prince Harry, the fifth in line to the UK’s throne, is one of several prominent figures who are guest-editing Today program over Christmas period.

Barack Obama warned against the irresponsible use of social media and how such actions were distorting people’s understanding of complex issues, and spreading misinformation.

The former president expressed concern about a future where facts are discarded and people only read and listen to things that reinforce their own views.

He said: “One of the dangers of the internet is that people can have entirely different realities. They can be cocooned in information that reinforces their current biases.

“The question has to do with how do we harness this technology in a way that allows a multiplicity of voices, allows a diversity of views, but doesn’t lead to a Balkanization of society and allows ways of finding common ground.”

President Donald Trump is a prolific user of Twitter, but Barack Obama did not mention him by name.

Donald Trump has been accused of overusing Twitter and following only a narrow range of users, though he maintains it allows him to connect directly with the American people.

Barack Obama suggested face-to-face contact would help counteract extreme views.

He said: “Social media is a really powerful tool for people of common interests to convene and get to know each other and connect.

“But then it’s important for them to get offline, meet in a pub, meet at a place of worship, meet in a neighborhood and get to know each other.

“Because the truth is that on the internet, everything is simplified and when you meet people face-to-face it turns out they’re complicated.”

The former president added: “It’s hard, being in the public eye is unpleasant in a lot of ways. It is challenging in a lot of ways.

“Your loved ones are made vulnerable in ways that might not have been true 20 years ago or 30 years ago.

“So it is a sacrifice that I think everybody has to be at peace with when they decide to go into politics. But, ultimately, I think the rewards of bringing about positive change in this world make it worthwhile.”

Barack Obama pays tribute to the support of his family, especially his wife Michelle, describing how glad he is that she was “my partner throughout that whole process”.

He compared his time in office to being a relay runner: “If you ran hard, you did your best and you were able to pass that baton successfully and the world was a little better then you had done your job.”

He cited ObamaCare – ensuring more people can afford basic healthcare – as a major achievement.

“What an enormous blessing it is to say that 20 million Americans have health insurance that didn’t have it before.”

Prince Harry’s program focused on issues such as the armed forces, mental health, youth crime and climate change.

We’ve heard of father and son as well as mother and daughter matching shoes. What you don’t hear about as much (and what might be the cutest of all) is father daughter matching shoes.

Like father like daughter is a phrase you hear all the time. Celebrate the closeness and similarities between a father and daughter by purchasing a pair of matching father daughter sneakers. No one will be able to resist the cuteness.

Your daughter will look back at photos of you both in matching sneakers and be so happy about the bonding time you had while she was young. With so many shoe stores online, it might be hard to find the right pair of shoe that matches both you and your daughter’s personalities (while still pleasing your wallet, too).

We’ve researched the most adorable pairs of matching father-daughter sneakers online and this is what we found!


Adidas shell tops are in style again. They are everywhere.

Get a pair of these Adidas classics for you and your daughter and you both will be stylin’. The photo above is from the kids section, but you’d never guess because the kids and adult shoes look so similar.

Imagine a father daughter day out and how many heads would turn to look at the cuteness that is upon them.

Not only that, but if she hasn’t learned to tie her shoes yet, this is a wonderful experience to teach her. You’ll be wearing the exact same pair of shoes, so you can teach her how to tie laces and use your own as an example.

Ok, keep reading and try not to shed a tear!


Though technically some of these pairs of are not sneakers, we just had to include Sperry. They did devote a whole section to parent/child shoe matching!

Sperry has a section specifically for kids to wear shoes like their parents called “Just Like Mom and Dad.” They have lots of adorable miniature sized shoes that are otherwise identical to what their parent would wear.

All of the shoes in this special section are shoes that a father could buy and match with his daughter. Go hiking, boating, or take a walk in the forest, braving the elements together in matching Sperrys.

How cute!


Universally cool, timelessly in fashion, Converse a fantastic choice for the rocker/alternative dad when matching shoes with his daughter.

These shoes look like they could easily be adult shoes. That’s because Converse offers most of the same styles in adult, so matching father daughter shoes are super easy (and cheap!) to acquire.


Like most of these choices, Vans are always in style. Easy to slip on and off, they made a practical kids shoe. Take advantage of the efficiency of the shoe and buy a pair for yourself as well!

Dressed up or dressed down, these vans come in a variety of colors and choices to wear to different events. Wear them on a walk to the park, a day at the playground, or celebrating someone’s birthday.

Whatever the choice, the people around you will be delighted.


Light up your day and grab two pairs of light up sneakers – one for you and one for her!

Who knew light up shoes would not only come back in style, but that they would become hugely popular with adults of all ages?

Skechers offers adult male light up sneakers along with the kids. Imagine walking around the mall in matching light up shoes. So many kids will see and tell their parents they want to do the same!

Light up birthday parties, weddings, and anything else that calls for fun!


What’s cuter than tiny Nikes?

Be the coolest father daughter duo in town by grabbing a pair of matching Nikes. They’re comfortable, so you can walk around all day sporting your favorite athletic brand while father daughter bonding.

If you want to make it even more darling, you could even buy completely matching nike outfits.

Maybe that’s not such a good idea, because people will probably start fainting of cuteness-overload at that point.

Air Jordan

For those who are more into Jordans, there are unbelievably cute matching father daughter sneakers to buy.

These pairs definitely run higher on the price range, but true Jordan fans will sacrifice for their favorite brand.

You will be sporty along with your stylish daughter. Teach her how to pair Jordans with pants, jeans, and shirts for that perfect look. You’ll both be the talk of the neighborhood!


Dress simply in clean white Keds. They go with almost any outfit, and most importantly, you’ll match with your daughter. Heck, the whole family could wear these together!

She can wear these with a light sundress or dressed down in jeans and a t-shirt along with her father. However they’re worn, they’ll look nice. Afterall, they’re Keds!

The only challenge, of course, will be teaching her how to clean them clean.

Father Daughter Bonding

Sure, matching pairs of shoes is cute and all, but what it’s really about is bonding! Unforgettable childhood moments like this will live on in her memory forever.

Honestly though, you could wear matching shoes well into her adult life and it would still be awesome.

Ari Behn, the former son-in-law of King Harald V of Norway, has accused Kevin Spacey of groping him after a Nobel Peace Prize concert.

The Norwegian author, who was married to King Harald’s daughter Martha Louise until 2016, told radio station P4 that it happened after Kevin Spacey had hosted the event in 2007.

“I am a generous person, but this was a bit more than I had in mind,” he said.

Kevin Spacey has been accused of abuse and harassment by a string of men and has been written out of House of Cards.

A spokesman for the Hollywood star said last month that he was “taking the time necessary to seek evaluation and treatment” in the wake of the allegations.

Recalling the alleged incident, Ari Behn said: “We had a great talk, he sat right beside me.

“After five minutes he said, <<hey, let’s go out and have a cigarette>>. Then he puts his hand under the table and grabs me by the b**ls.”

Ari Behn said he put Kevin Spacey off by telling him: “Er, maybe later.”

He added: “My hair was dark at the time, I was 10 years younger and right up his alley.”

Last month, the Old Vic theatre in London said it had received 20 personal testimonies of alleged inappropriate behavior by Kevin Spacey while he was artistic director there.

The actor and producer has faced other allegations too, with the claims leaving his career in ruins.

He has been removed from the sixth season of House of Cards, which will instead focus on his on-screen wife, played by Robin Wright.

Kevin Spacey has also been replaced by Christopher Plummer in the new Ridley Scott movie All the Money in the World.


In an interview about his life, Jay-Z has admitted for the first time that he cheated on Beyonce.

The musician told The New York Times Style Magazine that he had built up walls due to issues from his childhood, which led to him shutting down and infidelity.

Jay-Z said: “The hardest thing is seeing pain on someone’s face that you caused, and then have to deal with yourself.”

Beyonce and her husband had both hinted about it in their music.

“You have to survive,” Jay-Z said.

“So you go into survival mode, and when you go into survival mode, what happens? You shut down all emotions.

“So, even with women, you gonna shut down emotionally, so you can’t connect. In my case, like, it’s deep. And then all the things happen from there: infidelity.”

Jay Z launches artist-friendly streaming site Tidal

Jay-Z and Timbaland Cleared over Big Pimpin’ Copyright Infringement Case

Jay-Z hinted that they could have got divorced but he had had therapy to help him deal with his past experiences.

“You know, most people walk away, and, like, divorce rate is like 50% or something ’cause most people can’t see themselves.”

In 2013, rumors came out that the rapper had been cheating and then there was #elevatorgate when Solange Knowles attacked him, while sister Beyonce stayed silent.

More recently Jay-Z’s album, 4:44, alluded to him being unfaithful.

The rapper wrote: “Look, I apologize/Often womanize/Took for my child to be born to see through a woman’s eyes.”

A year before 4:44 came out, Beyonce sang about “Becky with good hair” on her album Lemonade.

“He only want me when I’m not there/He better call Becky with the good hair.”

Jay-Z and Beyonce had planned to do a joint album but ended up doing solo records instead.

“We were using our art almost like a therapy session. And we started making music together. And then the music she was making at that time was further along.

“So, her album came out as opposed to the joint album that we were working on.”

The rapper also talked about his relationship with Kanye West.

“I [talked to] Kanye the other day, just to tell him, like, he’s my brother. I love Kanye. I do. It’s a complicated relationship with us.”

Jay-Z admitted that it hadn’t always been an easy relationship.

Kanye West reportedly left Jay-Z’s streaming service, Tidal, over a money dispute and he also ranted about him during a concert.

“I’m sure he feels that I’ve done things to him as well. I’m not a perfect human being by no stretch.

“Hopefully when we’re 89, we look at this six months or whatever time and we laugh at that.”


NBC’s The Today Show host Matt Lauer has been fired by the network over an allegation of inappropriate behavior.

NBC said: “On Monday night, we received a detailed complaint from a colleague about inappropriate s**ual behavior in the workplace by Matt Lauer.

“As a result, we’ve decided to terminate his employment.”

Matt Lauer co-hosts The Today Show. NBC said it had “reason to believe this may not have been an isolated incident”.

NBC News chairman Andy Lack said while it was the first complaint about Matt Lauer’s behavior in his time there, more than 20 years, it represented a “clear violation of our company’s standards”.

In 2016, Matt Lauer signed a new contract with the network worth a reported $20 million per year.

As well as fronting the morning show, he was chosen to moderate an election debate between Donald Trump and rival Hillary Clinton.

Matt Lauer has conducted high-profile interviews, such as the one in which Charlie Sheen confirmed he is living with HIV in 2015.

In an emotional interview, Today co-hosts Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb said they were “heartbroken”.

“As I’m sure you can imagine we are devastated and are still processing all of this,” Savannah Guthrie said.

“I’m heartbroken for Matt – he is my dear, dear friend and my partner and he has been loved by many people here.

“And I’m heartbroken for the brave colleague who came forward to tell her story and any other women who have their own stories to tell.”

Savannah Guthrie added: “This reckoning that so many organizations have been going through is important, it’s long overdue and it must result in workplaces where all women – all people – feel safe and respected.”

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump commented on Twitter: Wow, Matt Lauer was just fired from NBC for “inappropriate s**ual behavior in the workplace.” But when will the top executives at NBC & Comcast be fired for putting out so much Fake News. Check out Andy Lack’s past!”

Matt Lauer’s departure comes two weeks after NBC executive Matt Zimmerman, who was reported to have worked closely with Lauer, was fired after allegations of inappropriate behavior.

Last week, CBS fired Charlie Rose, one of its leading anchors, amid allegations of assault. In April, Fox News fired its best-known presenter, Bill O’Reilly.


Prince Harry’s future wife, Meghan Markle, will not be known as Princess Meghan when she ties the knot with him in May 2018.

By the standards of British royal protocol, the American actress lacks “royal blood”.

That means that she cannot call herself Princess Meghan.

The arcane rules mean that Meghan Markle will be compelled to follow the example of her future sister-in-law, Kate Middleton.

When Kate Middleton married Prince William in 2011, she automatically became Her Royal Highness, Princess William of Wales. The overwhelming likelihood is that Meghan Markle will in turn become HRH Princess Harry of Wales.

Kate Middleton was not of royal blood, and what applies to her will also apply in the case of Meghan Markle.

Royal blood meant that Queen Elizabeth’s late sister Margaret was entitled to call herself Princess Margaret. Likewise the Queen’s daughter is Princess Anne and her granddaughters are Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie.

Royal blood made them princesses in their own right.

Sarah Ferguson was never Princess Sarah and Sophie Rhys-Jones – the wife of Prince Edward – is not Princess Sophie.

The rules also meant that Lady Diana Spencer was never officially Princess Diana. She was the Princess of Wales and, after her divorce from Prince Charles, she was Diana, Princess of Wales.

From the point of view of Buckingham Palace, handy titles or “handles” are required for the members of the family who occupy prestigious but somewhat peripheral roles to the main business of monarchy.

Queen Elizabeth’s first cousins are, respectively, the Dukes of Gloucester and Kent, and when her disgraced uncle abandoned the throne to marry an American divorcee in 1936, he became the Duke of Windsor.

Such ducal titles are frequently bestowed upon marriage precisely because they give the new entrant to the family a grand-sounding title without making them princesses or princes in their own right.

In 1986, when Prince Andrew married Sarah Ferguson, the Queen made him Duke of York, thus she became the Duchess of York – a title she continues to hold despite her divorce.

Similarly, when Prince Edward married Sophie Rhys-Jones, he became the Earl of Wessex and his new wife the Countess of Wessex.

It could be that the Queen makes the same kind of move in the cases of Kate and Meghan, and dusts off a long-defunct royal dukedom – Sussex (the favorite for Harry and Meghan), Albany and Clarence are among the vacant ones.

However, as with many things connected to British royal protocol, there is always an exception to the rule – Queen Elizabeth’s husband Philip married into the royal family, and yet he is a prince.

When Philip married the then Princess Elizabeth in 1947, the then British King, George VI, created him “Duke of Edinburgh”.

He only became Prince Philip in February 1957 when the Queen “accorded him the style and title of a Prince of the United Kingdom”.

The Queen could also make both Kate and Meghan princesses in their own right – but such are the rigid traditions surrounding this issue that Britain’s first Princess Meghan is likely to be some time away.


Prince Harry and his fiancée Meghan Markle will marry at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, in May 2018, Kensington Palace has announced.

The Royal Family will pay for the wedding, including the service, music, flowers and reception – the date will be announced later.

Meghan Markle, 36, a Protestant, will be baptized into the Church of England and confirmed before the wedding.

A spokesman for Prince Harry said the pair would make sure the wedding “reflects who they are as a couple”.

Jason Knauf said Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were “leading the planning process for all aspects of the wedding” and were working through ideas on how members of the public could “feel part of the celebrations”.

“This wedding, like all weddings, will be a moment of fun and joy that will reflect the characters of the bride and groom,” he added.

“Stay tuned.”

In an earlier interview, Uma Thurman said it was commendable that women were speaking out about harassment and assault.

“I have learned, I am not a child and I have learned that… when I’ve spoken in anger, I usually regret the way I express myself,” she said.

“So I’ve been waiting to feel less angry. And when I’m ready, I’ll say what I have to say.”

Uma Thurman has appeared in a number of movies that were produced by Harvey Weinstein, including Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill.

Nick Carter of Backstreet Boys has said he is “shocked and saddened” to be accused of rape by former pop singer Melissa Schuman.

In a blog post published earlier this month, Melissa Schuman claimed Nick Carter forced her into an act against her will and raped her 15 years ago, when she was 18.

Melissa Schuman alleged: “He was relentless, refusing to take my nos for an answer.”

In a statement, Nick Carter said Melissa Schuman had “never expressed to me while we were together or at any time since that anything we did was not consensual”.

The musician went on: “It is contrary to my nature and everything I hold dear to intentionally cause someone discomfort or harm.”

#MeToo: Charlie Rose Suspended by Several TV Networks Following Harassment Allegations

The accusations are the latest in a slew of claims to be made against leading figures in the movie, music and broadcasting industries.

In a lengthy post, Melissa Schuman says she was invited to Nick Carter’s apartment while they were shooting a made-for-TV movie in 2003.

Melissa Schuman, then 18 and a member of girl group Dream, claims she was “forced to engage in an act against [her] will” before being thrown onto a bed and raped.

Nick Carter and Melissa Schuman subsequently recorded a duet and performed together, which Carter said was evidence that he “was always respectful and supportive… both personally and professionally”.

Melissa Schuman said she had decided to come forward after reading a report last month that claimed Nick Carter was investigated for assault against a 20-year-old fan in 2006.

No charges were brought against the singer, whose band – best known for such 90s hits as I Want It That Way and Everybody – currently has a residency in Las Vegas.

Charlie Rose, 75, has apologized, but said not all the allegations were accurate.

The allegations span from the 1990s to 2011 and include groping, phone calls and unwanted advances.

PBS quickly suspended distribution of the Charlie Rose show following the allegations, which they described as “deeply disturbing”.

In a statement posted to Twitter, Charlie Rose said: “I deeply apologize for my inappropriate behavior. I am greatly embarrassed.

“I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realize I was mistaken.”

London’s Old Vic theater says it has received 20 personal testimonies of alleged inappropriate behavior by Kevin Spacey, who was its artistic director between 2004 and 2015.

Those affected said they “felt unable to raise concerns”, and the double Oscar winner “operated without sufficient accountability”.

The theatre said it “truly apologizes” for not creating a culture where people felt able to speak freely.

The Old Vic’s announcement follows recent allegations of harassment and predatory behavior made against Kevin Spacey while at the theatre.

Kevin Spacey has not responded to them.

His behavior was alleged to have ranged from making people feel uncomfortable to inappropriate behavior, the Old Vic investigation found.

No-one alleged rape but three people told the Old Vic they had contacted the police, while 14 of the 20 complainants were told by the investigators that they should consider going to the police.

There were 20 individual allegations and 16 were former staff, all of whom were men.

According to Lewis Silkin – the external law firm engaged by the theatre to conduct the investigation – more than half the allegations were said to have taken place inside the Old Vic.

The investigation also found there was not widespread knowledge of Kevin Spacey’s alleged behavior within the organization, the law firm said.

With the exception of one of the claims, none of the reported incidents were raised formally or informally with management.

Kevin Spacey was invited to participate in the investigation but the Old Vic said he did not respond.

The investigation is continuing so more people can come forward.

Current artistic director Matthew Warchus said he had “genuine and deep sympathy for all those who have come forward”.

He added: “Everyone is entitled to work in an environment free from harassment and intimidation.

“The Old Vic is now actively engaged in the process of healing and the process of prevention.”

Matthew Warchus described the allegations as “a shock and a disturbing surprise to many of us”.

“It is incorrect, unfair and irresponsible to say that everybody knew.

“But as a result of the investigation, what we have learnt is how better to call out this behavior in future.”

He said the findings would help “our industry as a whole, as together we rapidly evolve an intelligent new standard of protection and support in and around the workplace”.

The Old Vic’s executive director Kate Varah added that they did not want to “just rush out a statement”, saying: “We have not slept since this came out because we have been doing it in a robust, careful way.”

Kevin Spacey said on November 2 he was seeking treatment, in the wake of the allegations.  However, there is no information about what kind of treatment the actor is seeking.

A growing number of harassment and rape allegations have been made against public figures in recent weeks.
