Princess Diana and Princess Grace both died in car accidents – Diana in 1997 in Paris, aged 36, and Grace in 1982 in Monaco, aged 52. But the two women had more than their tragic deaths in common, and were even friends, body language expert Judi James has said.

Judi told Express.co.uk that Diana was just 19 when she met Grace, Princess of Monaco, but there was an instant connection between the two women.

She said: “When the future Princess Diana met Princess Grace in 1981, the meeting between two iconic women could hardly have been more poignant.

“Diana was far from the beautiful, adored fashion icon she has become.

“At 19, she had just gotten engaged to Charles and wore the disastrously ill-fitting black evening dress which showed too generous an amount of her cleavage.

“Grace was near the premature end of her life, an elegant and experienced princess in her fifties who was completely established in the roles that were still in Diana’s future.”

Diana and Grace were attending a fundraising party in London when they met, the bride-to-be wearing a strapless black Emanuel dress described by herself as ‘two sizes too small’.

Grace, meanwhile, wore a long-sleeved purple foil-like dress, her platinum blonde locks tied in a braid around her head.

Judi continued: “There seems to have been an instant empathy between Grace and Diana, with Grace consoling her over the dress and her nerves, allegedly using the very telling prophetic phrase, ‘don’t worry darling, it doesn’t will only get worse.

“Probably neither woman would have guessed it at the time, but they would have more in common than their marriages into royal families.

“It wasn’t long before Diana learned to work with the press and use the cameras like the professional star Grace was before she even met her husband.

“And she also discovered, like Grace, her natural strong empathy with the public and children in particular, as well as her ability to use her popularity and profile to champion good causes and promote several charities.”

Both women were photographed with children – their own and those of the public – throughout their lives, seeming genuinely interested in what they had to say, making them more attractive, affectionate and loving in the eyes of people in their respective countries.

“It made people feel personally invested in her, with many people feeling like they had lost a real friend when Diana died.”

Judi explained that the two women used “eye tie or tie signs” to “create that bond” with the audience.

She said: ‘When Grace was photographed cradling her newborn baby, her facial expression and eye contact with the camera suggest she is sharing this very personal moment of joy with all of us.

“Diana would often cast little sharing glances at the camera, creating moments of what felt like one-on-one communication.

“This very genuine style of affection from both women meant that they were also great with young children.

“We can see Grace’s expression of total commitment and joy as she takes a bouquet from a little girl, and Diana would often discover that it is the children who insist on hugs, which would have testified to her naturally warm personality.

“Both women also emphasized displays of affection and bonding with their own children.”

Judi added that “the other key ingredient both women shared was their ability to bring magic to the royal families they married.”

“Their charisma was shared, broadcast and poured over their husbands and children in a series of beautiful family photos that looked like they were straight out of a glossy magazine,” the body language expert said.

Everyone knows the official royal Instagram accounts, from Kate Middleton and Prince William’s @dukeandduchessofcambridge to Queen Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan’s @queenrania. However, these 15 handles do not appear to be managed by a social media team; rather, the people posting appear to be royals (or relatives of royals, that is), offering glimpses behind palace gates so to speak.

2

Edo Mapelli Mozzi (@edomapellimozzi)

Although Princess Beatrice’s Instagram is private, her husband, Edo Mapelli Mozzi, has a very artistic account. He rarely shares photos of the royal family, instead opting for interior design images. It makes sense, given that he is the founder of an architecture and design studio.

3

Mike Tindall (@mike_tindall12)

Another royal husband, who happens to be a hugely fun Instagram follower: Zara Tindall’s husband, Mike, a former rugby player. He caused a stir over the Platinum Jubilee weekend, when he shared some fun behind-the-scenes snaps from the festivities.

6

Lady Amelia Windsor (@amelwindsor)

Lady Amelia Windsor, the Duke of Kent’s granddaughter, is currently 43rd in line to the British throne, and her Instagram proves it’s better not to be the heir. Her Instagram account documents her life as a model and member of the royal family’s jet set, someone who is a bit out of the spotlight.

seven

Princess Olympia (@olympiagreece)

Princess Olympia of Greece and Denmark is the daughter of Crown Prince Pavlos and Crown Princess Marie-Chantal Miller, and her Instagram is an aesthetic glimpse into her high-society lifestyle.

She said GTC in 2016, the best fashion advice she’s ever received was from her grandmother: “It’s always better to be overdressed than underdressed, because you never know who you might run into on the street.”

8

Prince Constantine Alexios (@alexiosgreece)

Olympia’s brother, Prince Constantin Alexios of Greece and Denmark, is not as frequent on a poster as his sister. He only has 12 posts on his feed (as of this writing), and all of them are extremely artistic.

9

Prince Achilea (@achi_of_greece)

The third in the trio of Greek royal siblings is the youngest, Prince Achileas, a 21-year-old attending New York University. Her Instagram definitely gives off the most Gen Z vibes of the group.

ten

Princess Alexandra of Hanover (@sassadeo)

Grace Kelly‘s granddaughter, Princess Alexandra of Hanover, is the daughter of Princess Caroline and Prince Ernst August. She is thirteenth in line for the Monegasque throne, and her Instagram can be defined as just “extremely fashionable”.

11

Zenouska Mowatt (@zenouska1)

Zenouska Mowatt is the granddaughter of Princess Alexandra of Kent, the Queen’s first cousin. Her Instagram is remarkably normal for a member of the British royal family, with highlights recorded on her profile like “Lols” and “Lols #2”.

Flora Vesterberg née Ogilvy (@floravesterberg)

13

Prince Mateen (@tmski)

Prince Mateen of Brunei shares his military life and love of fitness and polo with his over 2 million followers. He also casts a Thirst Trap from time to time.

Pauline Ducruet (@paulinedcrt)

15

James Middleton (@jmidy)

Okay, technically he’s not royal, but Kate Middleton’s brother James Middleton’s Instagram is too good not to make this list. His dogs ! His life in the countryside! His nature shots!

Prince and Princess Michael of Kent are expected to retire from public duties soon. Although no official announcement has yet been made, it is believed that Queen Elizabeth II’s first cousin and his wife will take the next step as he turns 80 on July 4. It comes months after he was criticized for having business dealings with the Kremlin following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February.

After the criticism, the 79-year-old British prince, who speaks fluent Russian and is linked to Tsar Nicholas II, resigned as patron of the Russian-British Chamber of Commerce. He also gave up an award from the Order of Friendship, one of Russia’s highest honours. But it has been said that he is still an ambassador and a shareholder in the money transfer company RemitRadar, which is headed by former KGB officer Sergey Markov.

According to the Royal Family website, Prince and Princess Michael of Kent are ‘out of work’ royals, but they ‘undertake a range of public duties including representing the Queen at certain engagements’ . They would be married for more than 40 years. The website says the prince ‘undertakes an average of over 200 public work assignments for the non-profit sector, funded by his own family’, before adding: ‘Princess Michael is also actively involved in around 45 organisations. different charities and organizations, including animal and wildlife trusts and health and welfare charities.

Inside Prince Michael of Kent and Marie-Christine’s royal relationship

Prince Michael married Baroness Marie-Christine von Reibnitz, daughter of Silesian nobleman Baron Gunther von Reibnitz and his Austro-Hungarian wife, Countess Maria Szapáry of Muraszombath, in 1978. After her marriage, she became Her Royal Highness the Princess Michael of Kent. Apparently, the 77-year-old princess did not use her birth name as “Anglo-Saxon tradition dictates that a woman on marriage takes her husband’s name”, according to Royal Central.

“The same principle happens with women who marry into the royal family – they adopt the female variant of their husband’s title. However, what makes Princess Michael’s title unique in The Royal Family is that she is currently the only woman married to a prince who is not a peer of the realm. If Prince Andrew had not been conferred as Duke of York at his wedding, Sarah Ferguson would have been officially named HRH Princess Andrew at her wedding,” the Royal Central report said.

However, the marriage of Prince and Princess Michael of Kent was not easy as Marie Christine von Reibnitz was Roman Catholic and divorced at the time. The union also cost the prince his right of succession since “the Bill of Rights (1689) and the Act of Settlement (1701) excluded those who married Roman Catholics from succession”, as mentioned on his official website . But the site adds that “this provision has been repealed by the Succession to the Crown Act (2013) and the Prince’s place in the Succession has been restored”.

It has been reported that the prince proposed to his bride-to-be by gifting a two-stone sapphire and diamond ring, which was created using gemstones from his late mother, Princess Marina, Duchess of Kent. They exchanged vows in a civil ceremony at Vienna’s Rathaus (Town Hall) in Austria, which was attended by his siblings – the Duke of Kent and Princess Alexandra, as well as Princess Anne and Lord Louis Mountbatten .

In June 1983, the newlyweds were blessed for their marriage in a Roman Catholic ceremony at the Archbishop of London. They later became parents to a son and a daughter – Lord Frederick Windsor, 43, and Lady Gabriella Windsor, 41. Both are members of the Church of England and also in the line of succession.

But like many royal weddings, the wedding of Prince and Princess Michael of Kent was also reportedly not free of infidelity rumors. According to royal expert Phil Dampier, who said in the documentary ‘Princess Michael: The Controversial Royal’, “Both Prince and Princess Michael have had romantic relationships with other people. Some other people have been married, some don’t.”

“She was related to Texas oil tycoon John Ward Hunt. It was suggested that he wanted to marry her at some point. They met in Dallas at a business conference, and they were seen together, and she denied there was an affair, but she was once photographed walking out of her house in a red wig with dark glasses obviously trying to dress up in the 1980s. Very significantly in 2006, she was seen in Venice looking very happy in the company of Russian furniture tycoon Mikhail Kravchenko were pictured together joking, laughing, holding hands, even kissing and floating around Venice on a gondola “, explained Dampier.

The expert also spilled beans on the prince, saying: “Prince Michael, likewise, has been linked to a number of girlfriends. Bryony Brind, who was a ballet dancer, had a long-standing relationship with him and finally gave he said she did not want to jeopardize her marriage. He was also linked to an American, Lucy Weather, and she later gave interviews about their eight-year relationship. He was very involved in their sex life and liked that she dressed in white lingerie and went into many intimate details which probably caused the queen to ‘spit on her breakfast’.”

Curiously, no member of the British royal family is on the guest list.

King Harald and Queen Sonja of Norway throw the party in Oslo, but despite the monarch being a great-grandson of King Edward VII, much like Queen Elizabeth IIno one from the House of Windsor will be included.

No reason was given, but it led to suggestions of a ‘snub’ towards the British royal family.

Given who will be there, it seems unusual that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge – Britain’s future king and queen after Prince Charles and Camilla – are missing.

However, Princess Charlene and Prince Albert II of Monaco – or any other member of the monegasque royal family – will not be there either, nor will the royals of some of the other smaller European royal dynasties.

The gala will also see some of the young royal ladies wearing a tiara for the first time, no doubt an exciting time in their lives.

Overnight, the festivities began with a pre-anniversary party in the capital.

Guests included the King and Queen of Norway, Princess Ingrid’s parents, Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit, and their sons Prince Sverre Magnus and Marius Borg Høiby, Mette-Marit’s parents. Marit. son from a previous relationship.

Newly engaged Princess Märtha Louise was there with fiance Shaman Durek with other members of the Norwegian royal family.

It was Princess Märtha and Durek’s first public appearance together since announcing their intention to marry.

In January, the Norwegian royal court shared photos of Princess Ingrid from her new office inside the royal palace.

“In the future, Princess Ingrid Alexandra will have more official engagements on behalf of the Royal Family, but in the years to come her primary focus will be her education,” the palace said in a statement.

She is expected to attend university for several years before embarking on full-time royal duties.

Monaco is not only home to its famous royal family, but also famous casinos. Monaco’s casinos are among the most glamorous in the world. For this reason, and for all other opportunities, Monaco is known as the playground of all the rich and famous, including the royal family.

Games of chance have something magical about them

Many of us are fans of the royal family and other rich and famous people because they seem so glamorous. Their lives seem almost magical compared to the rest of ours. For this reason, it is no wonder that different types of gambling games are also connected to the world.

As the name suggests, a player’s luck has a big impact on the outcome of games of chance. It even makes them magical. Of course, some of them can also be influenced by skill and talent, but luck always has an influence.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle opened up about the royal family when fellow Montecito resident Oprah Winfrey interviewed them for a CBS special last year.

The relevance of the resident Duke and Duchess of Montecito seems to be diminishing along with wokism.

If their recent visit to London for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee proved anything, it’s that the British Royal Family is more popular than ever and has evolved mightily despite Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s efforts to smear the image of the Royal Family throwing the dirty laundry on an Oprah Winfrey special for everyone to hear.

The Duke’s new nickname might as well be ‘Second Row Harry’, based on the seating arrangement for a service of thanksgiving inside St Paul’s Cathedral, at which, upon arrival, the Duke and Duchess were booed by onlookers.

This would turn out to be the first and last event during the four-day extravaganza that Harry and Megs would attend. Afterwards, perhaps mortified by the public’s disapproval of their presence, they snubbed a reception at the Guildhall (leaving the revelers without a royal, as promised) and abruptly returned home to Montecito before the jubilee culminates with a show. It didn’t matter, anyway, since they weren’t invited to take a bow from the Buckingham Palace balcony with the Queen and her family. (And maybe that’s why they left when they did.)

There are also reports that Prince Harry was rebuffed after asking his own photographer for permission to take pictures of Queen Elizabeth II greeting her namesake grandson, Lilibet, at a private meeting. And it may also explain why – to prevent photo ops – the Duke and Duchess were choreographed away from senior royals.

“I heard that Netflix wanted these photos of them with the royal family because they would have sold them,” royal biographer Angela Levin told British talk show ‘GB News’. “It would have been very valuable to them.”

We wonder if Harry is starting to feel like the Tom Hanks character portrayed in the 2000 film “Cast Away.” Judging by the sullen expression he wore when he arrived at the Santa Barbara airport, the cold shoulders he encountered at his old stomping ground may be taking a toll on his psyche. Or maybe he lacks the pomp and circumstance he once found imprisoning. (Where is Wilson when you need him?)

And then there is the problem of reconciling a green attitude with the desire for personal comfort. Just last year, Harry said climate change was one of the “two most pressing issues” in the world today.

But just like fellow green fictitious Al Gore and Prince Albert of Monaco, the Duke leaves a huge carbon footprint as he travels the world in a private jet, telling people why they shouldn’t drive their car to work but take a bus instead – an unassuming posturing of “Don’t practice what you preach.”

On that last round trip to London, lasting a total of 24 hours, the Bombardier Global 6000 jet he and his family flew on emitted 112,800 pounds of carbon dioxide.

By the way, that’s a lot for a trip for a family of four.

Are we the only ones to see such hypocrisy? Well, with her own private jet, Oprah, another part-timer or part-timer, probably won’t ask that question with Harry and Megs.

The Duke’s disturbing Platinum Jubilee experience follows Netflix’s cancellation of the Duchess’ animated series ‘Pearl’ before it even launched.

Royal insiders believe Harry’s memoir, for which Penguin Random House has yet to announce a release date, could be the final nail in a coffin that seals any chance of reconciliation or resurrection to a royal existence.

(Message to Harry: Cancel the contract for the book; you don’t need it.)

On another front, our anti-social media war correspondent reports the latest internet buzz: ‘Megxiteers’ are flaring up their belief that the posted photo of one-year-old Lilibet is fake. “Lilibet is not from Meghan’s body” is their latest mantra.

“The Sugars” leader (and Sussex Squad apologist) Omid Scobie responds with cease and desist orders and a removal from YouTube. Lawyers have now entered the fray.

While Mr Scobie argues the British monarchy is ‘boring’ without Harry and Megs, rival ‘Megxiteers’ claim the Duke and Duchess ‘had recording devices on them at church’ and that ‘the Queen watched them like a hawk”.

According to our experience in the Principality of Monaco, there is nothing more ruthless than a royal court.

NOT AWAKENED

The following plot belongs to (choice pronoun) Woke Wokester, with this tombstone epitaph: “Here lies Woke, awoken as a joke, missed only by people hopelessly deceived.”

Keep in mind that we understand that awakening had an honorable beginning. Few know (and even fewer wokesters) that it stems from a 1938 folk song by Huddie Ledbetter, popularly known as Lead Belly, about nine black teenagers accused of raping two white women with these words: “Be a little careful when they go along around here – better stay awake, keep your eyes open” on racial prejudice and discrimination.

Our generation grew up with eyes open to racial prejudice and discrimination. President Harry S Truman launched the crusade to reform an unfair system, and President Lyndon Baines Johnson pushed it through and took all the credit for it. Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. dreamed his dream, and we as a nation are all better off for it.

And that’s why we don’t believe in identity politics. Growing up in the 1950s and 1960s, we – most of us, anyway – looked upon all humans with respect, regardless of color. (And for some of us that extends to a 49 day old fetus inside the womb, the irony…)

But guess what?

Woke-ness has been corrupted in a movement that has broadened its definition – a movement hijacked by critical race theory and the call for reparations with a focus on sexism and an overlap with #metoo, leading, as the said filmmaker Don Letts, “a world so woke, you can’t make a joke.

In the end, it was a power play, as Mitch Kokai wrote last month in American Thinker: “They just want to rule over us all. They tried to make it illegal to hurt their feelings. Yet they can offend us all the time. They insist that we are such terrible people that they refuse to even talk to us. Yet they claim that we are among those who are intolerant.

Ricky Gervais, the British comedian and actor, astutely said in 2021, “I want to live long enough to see the younger generation not being awake enough for the next generation. It will happen.

In fact, it is already happening.

Like a black hole, woke implodes, victim of the cancel culture it helped create. And now even the mainstream media are calling it out for what it’s really about: grievance and division; political correctness gone wrong. Or in other words: most will laugh, a few will cry, we’re delighted to toast farewell to mindless enlightenment.

Cheers!

BAN IS THE NEW CENSORSHIP

Remember the good old days when you got 86 from a saloon for dancing naked on the bar at midnight or getting into a drunken fight?

The times have changed.

For several months now, this columnist has been banned from a Coast Village Road bar and grill, not for dancing naked or for any sort of rowdy misconduct – but for expressing in these pages his opinion of their vibe and their food.

Their ban doesn’t matter to us as we stopped frequenting their establishment a long time ago and we don’t miss it one iota.

But banning a journalist for a bad review?

A more rational approach would be to put the ego aside and learn from what others say; strive to improve if necessary.

We asked for feedback, but heard nothing back.

We will of course wear this as a badge of courage as we continue to demonstrate that the pen is mightier than the martini.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle spent just 15 minutes with the Queen after returning to the UK for her Platinum Jubilee, an insider has claimed.

During the reunion, the Duke, 37, and Duchess of Sussex, 40, who are now based in Montecito, Calif., introduced their one-year-old daughter, Lilibet, who goes by the name of the Queen.

The couple, who were also with their three-year-old son Archie, saw the monarch in Windsor on Thursday June 2, but their time with Her Majesty was kept ‘formal’ by aides at Buckingham Palace, according to The Sun.

Meanwhile, Harry and his brother Prince William had no private moments together during the four days of celebrations, the Sunday Times reported – explaining their ‘broken relationship’ has not been healed.

‘[William] is still deeply upset by [Harry’s departure] and feels disappointed, but has moved on,” a friend said.

It comes as a British player who knows members of Harry’s Los Padres team revealed the Duke was ‘living his dream in the United States’, playing polo at professional levels while his brother sacrificed the sport to assignment name.

Harry was spotted striking a pose this weekend as he enjoyed a game of polo in the California sunshine, nearly a week after returning from the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations in London.

Buckingham Palace reportedly declined to comment when contacted by the publication.

Friday, Harry played for friend Nacho Figueras’ Los Padres team at the Cancha de Estrella Polo Club in Santa Barbara, which was the first time he had been seen since returning to Los Angeles on June 5.

After breaking a sweat, the red-faced royal was pictured taking a break as he placed his hands behind his head and thrust into his right hip.

By contrast, her busy brother Prince William, 39, can only occasionally manage a charity day.

It comes after royal experts claimed this week that Harry ‘must have gone home feeling very depressed for what he gave up’, after he and his wife Meghan decided not to be more visible during Jubilee celebrations because “they didn’t have center stage”. seats’.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex missed both the Platinum Jubilee party and the beauty pageant – as well as the Epsom Derby during the four days of festivities.

The couple only made one public appearance over Jubilee weekend, despite traveling from the US with their two children – Archie and Lilibet.

Vanity Fair’s Katie Nicholl told True Royalty TV’s The Royal Beat that the couple weren’t at any other celebrations because “they didn’t have center stage seats.”

Meanwhile, historian Hugo Vickers added: “Harry gave up being captain of the Royal Marines, who were in force.”

“I think he must have gone home feeling very depressed for what he gave up.”

Katie said: “I honestly think it’s [because]…they knew they wouldn’t be number one.

“And why did they leave the royal family? They left because they weren’t in the front row. I believe that’s why they weren’t at the other celebrations because they didn’t have center stage seats.
