    Historic royal visit to Cuba at odds with US stance

    Royal visits overseas always attract a great deal of scrutiny, but none in recent memory has been quite as politically sensitive and potentially inflammatory towards the UK's closest ally than this one. When Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, set foot in Havana Sunday, they'll be making history by embarking on the first-ever official visit to Cuba by members of the British royal family. But they're doing so at a time when much of the western world is denouncing Cuba's role in the unfolding political and humanitarian crisis in its close socialist partner, Venezuela. It's a trip that would have seemed impossible only a handful of years ago, before former U.S. President Barack Obama and former

    Duchess of Cambridge has 'terrible falling out' with ex-model friend

    The Duchess of Cambridge has had a spectacular falling-out with a long-term best friend and has even told Prince William that she wants the woman 'phased out' from their inner circle, it has been claimed.  Kate, 37, views Rose Hanbury, 35, as a 'rural rival' while at home in Sandringham, Norfolk, and their once close friendship is said to be in tatters, according to royal insiders.  Prince William has even tried to play mediator between the two women, as he and Kate have gone on several double dates with Rose and her husband David Rocksavage, the Marquess of Cholmondeley. However, the Duchess has ignored all attempts to mend fences, and insists that Rose, the Marchioness of Cholmondeley, needs

    Prince William 'to reach out' to family of tragic teen who took her own life

    Prince William is to reach out to the family of a teen who took her own life after viewing self harm images on social media, it is claimed. The Telegraph reports that the Duke of Cambridge will make contact privately to speak to relatives of Molly Russell. Molly was just 14-years-old when she took her own life in November 2017.

    Beatrice gallops around Windsor amid rumours she's set to tie knot

    Princess Beatrice and her father Prince Andrew were seen riding horses together in Windsor amid rumours the young royal is thinking about tying the knot with her new boyfriend.   The princess, currently eighth in line to the throne, was seen riding with the 59-year-old Duke of York, who appeared to struggle slightly as he mounted his horse.  Beatrice, 30, was seemingly amused as her father, a veteran of the Falklands War who holds the rank of Commander and honorary rank of Vice Admiral in the Royal Navy, climbed atop the animal during their afternoon gallop.

    Prince Charles risks Donald Trump's fury with historic visit to Cuba

    The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall will today arrive in Cuba for the first visit by members of the Royal Family since the Communist revolution 60 years ago. Their controversial trip risks angering President Donald Trump as he attempts to isolate America's old foe by tightening a trade embargo and warning foreign firms against doing business there. John Bolton, Trump's National SecurityAdviser, last year branded Cuba part of a 'troika of tyranny', along with Socialist states Venezuela and Nicaragua. Prince Charles and Camilla will visit a medical research centre, where they will hear about a partnership with Manchester University that helps Cuba develop its own cancer drugs.

Although they appear together in family events, including the recent Commonwealth Day and Buckingham Palace reception celebrating the 50th anniversary of the investiture of the Prince of Wales, this will be a rare public engagement starring just the Prince of Wales, Duke of Cambridge and Duke of Sussex.
