    Britain's Prince Philip, 97, recovers after Land Rover crash

    LONDON (AP) — Queen Elizabeth II's 97-year-old husband Prince Philip was recovering at the royal Sandringham estate after the Land Rover he was driving rolled over on its side in a collision with another vehicle. An alarming photo showing Philip's toppled black Land Rover dominated the front pages Friday of Britain's tabloids. The Daily Mirror's headline read: "Philip, 97, cheats death in crash." Buckingham Palace said Philip received a "precautionary checkup" at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King's Lynn on Friday and was found to have "no injuries of concern." Witness Roy Warne told the BBC he was driving home from work Thursday when the accident involving Philip's Land Rover and a compact

    My very ROYAL family! Danny Dyer knew he was related to Edward III

    From the moment the cab he's in drives past Buckingham Palace, it's clear the BBC's latest history presenter is like none before. 'What happened?' asks Danny Dyer, the EastEnders actor, as he points at the famous balcony where so many royal weddings have been celebrated with a kiss.  'Why ain't I up there, kissing a princess?' Danny has more reason than most to wonder why the Windsors ended up ensconced in luxury, while he was raised in Canning Town, east London. In 2016, appearing in the genealogy series Who Do You Think You Are?, Danny discovered that among the workhouse victims and thieves in his family tree, there was a royal link.  Not only is his great-grandfather 22 times removed King

    Princess Charlene of Monaco Took Her Royal Twins on a Whirlwind Trip to New York

    Monaco's royal twins, Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella, just took their first bite out of the big apple. On Instagram, their mother, Princess Charlene, shared a video montage (set to The Jackson 5's “ABC”) of their family trip to New York. “Great adventure and a wonderful experience! Thank You,” the Princess wrote, adding an American Flag emoji. So where did they go on their whirlwind adventure? First stop was Rockefeller Center, where they ventured up to the 30 Rock's Observation Deck, Top of the Rock. There, the family took in the city's skyline using the tower's binoculars. They also made a stop to see former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who posed for a picture with the two

    Royals rule the small and large screens—and this season's red carpets

    Queen Anne stomping and storming around Hampton Court Palace in The Favourite. Queen Elizabeth I agonizing over whether to order the execution of her cousin in Mary Queen of Scots. Queen Victoria in the pangs of childbirth in the eponymous television series. If it seems as if screens are filled with crowns and thrones recently, your eyes aren't inventing castles in the air. Audiences are in the middle of a mini-deluge of royal films and series, with up to a dozen or so either currently playing or in various stages of development. “Hollywood loves a royals piece,” says Heather Cocks of the popular Go Fug Yourself site. And virtually all of them have one thing in common: the main character is female.

    These Vintage Photos of Princess Anne Shed a Whole New Light on the Royal

    Once again, Princess Anne has topped the list of hardest-working royals, packing in more engagements in 2018 than any other member of the House of Windsor. It's perhaps not surprising that Anne, born in London in 1950, is so committed to her royal role, as she started public engagements at a very young age with a full regal diary of her own by the time she turned 21.

    The Favourite: 10 Facts About the Real History Behind the Movie

    The Favourite has been racking up plenty of award nominations lately, and for good reason: The movie traces the real-life power struggle between Duchess of Marlborough Sarah Churchill (played by Rachel Weisz) and Lady Abigail Masham (Emma Stone) as they attempt to win the favor of Anne, Queen of Great Britain (The Crown's Olivia Colman). While the film fudges some historical details—and adds some fictional drama to heighten the entertainment value—it's generally founded on solid history. 1. Queen Anne was the queen of being awkward. Queen Anne—who ruled as Queen of England, Scotland and Ireland beginning in 1702, then became known as Queen of Great Britain and Ireland when two of her realms formed a sovereign state in 1707, and maintained that position until her death in 1714—is sometimes painted as an indecisive simpleton.

    Kate Middleton Is Launching a Support Line to Help Families in Need

    It's shaping up to be a very busy 2019 for the royal family, and Kate Middleton is already filling up her schedule with engagements for her personal initiatives, focusing on young children, families and mental and physical health advocacy. Her next appearance is apt, then, as the Duchess of Cambridge will visit Family Action's Lewisham Center in South London on January 22. Family Action, which is celebrating its 150-year anniversary in 2019, is made up of 150 local and national services, and works to support vulnerable, at-risk families and children facing financial issues, mental health problems, disabilities, domestic abuse, substance abuse and other hardships.

    Meghan Markle Found a Super Cozy $35 Maternity Dress From H&M

    Just two days after visiting Birkenhead, Meghan Markle's off to another spot. This time, her visit was to The Mayhew, a charity that promotes animal welfare. The Duchess of Sussex has been a loyal supporter of animal rights, even before she became a royal. Her dogs, Guy and Bogart, were adopted from shelters, and since she joined the royal family, she's made it a point to skip their annual Boxing Day hunt to stay true to her beliefs. On this particular day, it seemed like Meghan felt like monochromatic ensemble. She stepped out of the car in a beige coat, minidress, and matching beige heels from Paul Andrew during her visit to the charity. The outerwear was by Armani, while her dress was from
