Princess Charlene and Prince Albert of Monaco announced their engagement in 2010 and in July the following year they were married. With a 20-year age gap, the couple’s relationship was reportedly not smooth, in fact, rumors and supposed scandals have followed them for decades. Express.co.uk spoke to body language expert Judi James about the couple’s interactions and whether there have been any changes over the years.

Watching Princess Charlene and Prince Albert in 2011, Judi said: “Charlene looked happy but slightly shy, as if she needed encouragement and support from her husband during their royal engagements.

“The couple use eye contact here to signal warmth and communication and Albert places a hand on her back and offers her an encouraging smile as he watches her.”

A year later, the expert suggests “an appearance of tension in both Charlene’s facial expression and body posture” when the royal attended the Amber Lounge gala.

“Her hand is tied to Albert’s arm but she will also often pull her bag up in a little barrier ritual. Her smiles are starting to look rather rigid here and Charlene’s tilted head suggests that shyness might still be an issue.

“Charlene’s mini dress at the Louis Vuitton Cruise Line Show event suggests high levels of confidence in her appearance now.”

In 2015, “the couple looked devoted” as they introduced their children to the world for the very first time from the palace balcony.

Judi noted that the couple “held a baby each and used eye contact and smiles at each other.”

« At the Monaco Red Cross Ball [that year] we suddenly see a very romantic and adoring Charlene, using additional loving rituals to make a dance with her husband feel like a magical moment.

“She places a head on his shoulder or looks at Albert like she’s in the honeymoon stage of their relationship and the pair laugh together, showing their fun side.”

A few years later, in 2017, Judi said she spotted “signs of possible high levels of tension” when the couple attended Meeting Herculis Monaco.

“His [Prince Albert] the arm around her seems to be aimed at pulling her into the pose and he grimaces as she performs a very stiff smile and an outstretched handshake,” the expert explained. “She seems to be more reluctant to pose with him again and he seems to be watching her with anxious eyes.”

Then, in 2019, “the distance between [the couple]was noted and Charlene “looked slightly isolated,” Judi suggested when discussing when the pair stepped out for the 59th Monte-Carlo Television Festival.

“Albert looks at her as if eager to offer her support and encouragement, using one arm to encourage her forward.

A year later, “Charlene looks model-chic, posing with a slightly more confident air” for the Monte-Carlo Gala.

Despite “a certain apparent tension in his [Prince Albert] face” Judi recalled how Charlene looked “rather more confident”.

As for the couple’s body language, “Charlene is back from her long stay abroad and is gradually reintegrating into royal appearances.”

“Standing behind his daughter [at the Monaco Grand Prix] makes her seem slightly isolated but clearly a devoted mother whose double arm suggests she can barely let her children go.

“Albert looks dedicated too, leaning back to speak to his wife in another gesture of what feels like gentle encouragement,” Judi said.

US law enforcement has charged a dual Russian and Canadian national for allegedly participating in the LockBit ransomware attacks. LockBit has become a destructive ransomware family that has been used in attacks against at least 1,000 victims in the United States and around the world.

The 33-year-old Mikhail Vasiliev is being held in Canada pending extradition to the United States. The Department of Justice (DoJ), in a statement on Thursday, accused Vasiliev specifically of conspiracy to intentionally damage protected computers and transmit ransom demands. He faces a maximum of five years in prison if convicted.

Assistant Attorney General Lisa Monaco said in a statement that the arrest was the result of more than two and a half years of investigation into the LockBit ransomware group.

“It is also the result of more than a decade of experience that FBI agents, Justice Department prosecutors and our international partners have built to dismantle cyber threats,” Monaco said. “Let this be yet another warning to ransomware actors: working with partners around the world, the Department of Justice will continue to disrupt cyber threats and hold perpetrators to account. Together with our partners, we will use all available tools to disrupt, deter and punish cybercriminals. »

LockBit first appeared in January 2020 and has since become one of the most active ransomware groups, especially after the Conti Group shut down its operations and shut down all of its servers in 2022. Ransomware operators reported tens of millions of dollars in ransom payments to victims. Over the past year, LockBit has targeted various organizations around the world, including Chile, Italy, and the UK, with researchers tracking a variant of LockBit targeting VMware’s ESXi virtual machine platform. , as well as several LockBit intrusions attributed to a threat. cluster sharing many overlaps with well-known cybercriminal group Evil Corp.

Brett Callow, threat analyst at Emsisoft, said the arrest could give law enforcement additional information about how Operation LockBit works and who was involved. Knowing this, “I will be very surprised if LockBit continues to operate under this brand name for much longer,” Callow said.

Over the past year, the United States has made several concerted efforts to root out key executives, operators, or affiliates associated with ransomware attacks. The State Department, for example, has offered a slew of rewards for information about members of various ransomware groups, including previous rewards totaling $15 million for the Conti group, $15 million for the DarkSide ransomware and $15 million for the Sodinokibi (REvil) group.

However, the actual arrest of these people often justifies international cooperation between various law enforcement agencies – which is sometimes difficult when dealing with cybercriminals protected by safe haven countries, allowing them to operate freely within their borders without consequence. In the case of Vasiliev, who was arrested in Canada, the United States had the assistance of the French National Gendarmerie, the European Union Law Enforcement Cooperation Agency (Europol) and of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

Overall, “the more people are arrested, the more information law enforcement will have at their disposal,” Callow said. “In some cases, this will help point to other ransomware operators and allow them to be arrested or disrupt their operations.”

A zoo in the small state of Monaco is a small miracle in itself… but there is another small miracle to report, the birth of a baby to one of the residents. The resident is an animal typical of certain regions of South America, also nicknamed “the Gardener of the Forests”, and the little ball of happiness making the pride of his parents was born last week at the Animal Garden of Monaco.

“Absolute softness”, there is no other word to describe it.

It is actually part of the rodent family and is called Azara Agouti (Dasyprocta azarae). Rodent or no rodent it’s cute.

By Jean Ronin for HelloMonaco

Monaco Zoological Garden

Located on the southern side of the Rock, the Zoological Garden in which the new baby was born was created in 1954 by Prince Rainier III.

They are home to nearly 250 animals representing around fifty species: exotic birds, turtles, caimans, hippopotamuses, reptiles, primates and farm animals – and very prominent at the moment the Azara Agouti who are obviously reproducing happily.

The zoo is immersed in an almost wild environment in the heart of the Principality.

There is also a playground inside this unique animal park… also an open walkway for geese (and/or ducks) and ornamental hens. You can walk among the birds and feed the ducks, as well as admire, among other animals, the big rabbits and now a little baby. The paddock is also great fun for children.

None of the animals living in the zoo have been purchased. All come from donors, circuses, or have been abandoned. You should also know that the zoo also had leopards, but they were released by Albert II after the efforts of Virginia McKenna, an English nature protector. The Monaco Zoo plans to be a zoo for domestic animals and not for wild animals.

And when the park’s facilities can no longer guarantee good living conditions, the animals are then transferred to more suitable zoos, as was the case for example for a white rhinoceros. The Zoological Garden of Monaco is one of the last royal menageries in the world and a happy nursery for newborn babies!

Halloween 2022 may be over, but that doesn’t mean we can’t take a moment to admire Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella’s spooky costumes just yet.

On Monday, Princess Charlene of Monaco shared a snap of the twins on her Instagram page, where they were dressed in their Halloween costumes. Jacques looked unfazed by a vampire, with his platinum blond hair and his face covered in bloody makeup.

In contrast, Gabriella struck a fierce pose in her pumpkin costume, which she paired with green stockings, black shoes, and a pumpkin headband. “Happy Halloween,” the royal wrote in the caption, along with a pumpkin emoji.

Charlene’s husband Prince Albert spoke to People in 2018 and shared how their kids celebrate Halloween.

“They’re not scared of ghosts at all, which confuses me,” he said of the twins. “That’s probably going to change, but it’s probably because they see them from time to time in these old cartoons, so they’re a bit intrigued by that.”

RUMORS & BUZZ

By sydney

Little known fact: Prince Harry’s real name is Henry Charles Albert David. The media dubbed him Harry – and it stuck, perhaps because Henry VIII was called Harry by those who knew him.

And that’s not all: the real name of Prince Henry’s wife is Rachel. Meghan is her middle name.

Henry and Rachel are said to have another fight on their hands – this time with Netflix, which has contracted the pair for $100 million worth of content that has reportedly upset the streaming giant.

It all started with “Pearl,” a Rachel-produced cartoon that Netflix canceled last spring before it even aired.

The dispute is now said to be over the ‘contents of the box’ which Henry wants removed or altered in a bid to soften his criticism of those close to the royals, lest he stop her from attend the coronation of King Charles III on May 6. or lead to the retention of royal titles for his two children.

The Montecito couple’s documentary or reality show built for Netflix by Archewell Productions has now been postponed until next year.

THE BATTENBERG BUGGERER

Momus always believed it was true, and now the truth (as alleged) has come out: Arthur Smyth has accused Prince Harry‘s great-uncle, Lord Louis “Dickie” Mountbatten, of abusing him when he was 11 at a children’s home in Kincora, Northern Ireland, where 39 boys were abused and three notorious staff members were subsequently prosecuted and imprisoned.

The High Court in Belfast will hear the case.

Mr Smyth, who has waived his right to anonymity and now resides in Australia, claims he was abused twice in August 1977 by First Lord of the Admiralty Dickie, who was murdered two years later by the Irish Republican Army.

“You don’t forget who assaulted you,” says Smyth. “You block but you don’t forget. I closed it for years. I felt embarrassed by what happened, but now I want peace.

Says author Leonard Downie, who last year published “The Mountbattens: The Lives of Dickie and Edwina,” “I am delighted that Arthur Smyth has gone public. It further confirms the claims of the two victims that I have interviewees who were abused in 1977 and that the child molestation allegations against Mountbatten in FBI files can be taken seriously.

Mr Smyth is seeking damages from various Irish government authorities, including the Department of Health and the Police Service of Northern Ireland, for assault, negligence and misconduct in the performance of public duties.

His lawyer, Kevin Winters, said: ‘By delivering this action, Arthur Smyth has put a marker on the horrific abuse he suffered as a child. He wants to expose what until now has been suspicions and rumors about one of his alleged attackers, the late Lord Louis Mountbatten.

Momus will go one step further and allege that Lord Mountbatten, whose passion was known for being young guards, was compromised by the Soviet KGB and blackmailed into becoming “the sixth man” in a spy ring that included Kim Philby, Guy Burgess, Donald Maclean, Sir Anthony Blunt and John Cairncross.

Dickie was nabbed and his role hushed up, but members of a British Security Service faction were livid and may have had their revenge.

The IRA, which liked to take credit for its many bombings, has always denied smashing Lord Mountbatten aboard his boat in the Irish village of Mullaghmore, County Sligo.

PRINCE ALBERT OF MONACO, AGAIN DUPE

The November issue of Vanity Fair, which has just hit newsstands, reveals that Prince Albert II of Monaco was duped into becoming the patron of an economic forum in Monaco, organized by an Australian scammer named Anthony Ritossa who fraudulently boasted of having a Harvard MBA but who (says Vanity Fair) “is a Wall Street washout, a deadbeat dad and a crook, repeatedly imprisoned by European authorities.”

Did no one in the Palace of Monaco vet such dubious figures before granting royal patronage – or did someone inside the royal palace pay to deceive the hapless prince?

As Ian Brodie summed it up in Monaco Daily News, “Those in Monaco who promoted Ritossa have enough eggs on their face to make an omelet.”

JEFFREY EPSTEIN’S FAVORITE WIFE MOUTH

When Jefferey Epstein’s comrade-in-arms Ghislaine Maxwell (daughter of Bouncing Czech, Robert Maxwell) gave her first interview from prison calling Prince Andrew a “dear friend” and also citing his “special friendship” with the Former US President Bill Clinton, no one but Momus seems to understand her subtle message to them both: “Time to get me out of here, old pals!” (Or else…).”

RICK CARUSO IS LATIN?

It turns out that Rick Caruso, the owner of the Rosewood Miramar Hotel in Montecito, who has now spent more than $80 million of his own money to become mayor of Los Angeles, is not white.

At least that’s what he told a Telemundo interviewer when the reporter said, “And this question is about you both. The next mayor of Los Angeles will be either an African-American woman or a white man. (Which isn’t even a question.)

To which Mr. Caruso replied: “I am Italian”, adding: “It is Latin.

So, according to Mr. Caruso’s thinking, he is not white but Latino.

However, according to Britannica, “Latin does not include speakers of Romance languages ​​from Europe, such as Italians or Spanish.”

And the National Association of Scholars agrees: “Latino is someone of Hispanic race, Italians are not and never have been Latinos.”

Which makes Mr. Caruso confused or wrong.

SECURITIES

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot on Twitter: “The success and future of this city is personal to me. This is why I am a candidate for re-election. »

If Chicago’s success is important to you, Lori, shouldn’t you run for re-election?

I’m just saying.

Santa Barbara actor Billy Baldwin tweets: “Want to end abortion? Threatening to sterilize or imprison the men responsible for all these unwanted pregnancies.

Well, Billy, assuming such men would get a fair trial (unless you invoke Gestapo tactics), the courts would be clogged worse than an artery after three double cheeseburgers washed down by that many milkshakes and a cheese plate for dessert.

Former President Donald Trump to Fox News’ Sean Hannity on documents removed by FBI from Mar-a-Lago: ‘When I left the White House, they were declassified.’

Good news Donald. Uh, if they’re declassified, can we see them?

Speaker Nancy Pelosi tweets: “Republicans have endless black money – but Democrats have people.”

Hmm. Don’t you mean, Nancy, it’s the Pelosi family that’s got endless black money (from current commerce) – but the Democrats have young liberals not mature enough to understand that money doesn’t not grow on trees despite the US Treasury’s propensity to print greenbacks based on nothing intrinsic but giving them (in exchange for votes) to young adults who would rather not work, which partly explains massive inflation ?

Thank you, Nancy, but when Momus wants to whine, Momus uncorks a bottle…

Editor’s note: “Rumeurs & Buzz”, which appears every Saturday in the Info-Presse, is written by a journalist who has chosen a pen name: “Momus”. In Greek mythology, Momus is the god of satire and mockery.

Grilling a storm: the menu will delve into authentic Armenian cuisine (Handout)

Mayfair’s first Armenian restaurant will open later this month, serving a menu curated by a two-Michelin-star chef.

Lusin, which takes its name from the Armenian word for “moon,” is the latest expansion of a restaurant chain that already has outposts in the Saudi cities of Riyadh, Jeddah and Al Khobar.

Marcel Ravin, the brain of the famous Monegasque restaurant The Blue Bay, has imagined a culinary offer that pays homage to Armenian cuisine. Dishes will range from the famous Cherry Kebab – spicy kebab skewers, cooked over charcoal then covered in homemade cherry sauce, with fruits picked in Armenia – to the Signature Lusin Kibbeh: mixed meat, bulgur and nuts, seasoned with spices armenian and pomegranate molasses. Dishes will be cooked by in-house chefs, rather than by Ravin.

Elsewhere, the Lusin salad will feature grated cheese and baked smoked eggplant, while the drinks menu will cover Armenian wines, as well as a selection of cocktails curated by Giancarlo Mancino, beverage and bar consultant for Rosewood Hotels.

The restaurant itself will seat up to 100 diners on two floors, with stone walls originally from the mountains of Armenia.

Lusin arrives in London with considerable clout, having previously hosted members of the Saudi royal family and government officials at his existing premises, as well as the late Kofi Annan, former UN secretary general.

Lusin will open on October 31 at 16 Hay Hill, London, W1J 8NY. Visit lusinerestaurant.com and follow @lusinmayfair for more information.

Princess Eugenie surprised royal fans when she swapped her Peter Pilotto wedding dress for a dusty pink wedding dress at her wedding reception with Jack Brooksbank on October 12, 2018.

Not only did the unconventional color catch the world’s attention, but Queen Elizabeth II’s granddaughter’s decision to base her second wedding dress on a movie star was not common among royal brides. They usually take inspiration from their loved ones, and although Eugenie had her family at heart when it came to choosing her dress, she based the design on actress-turned-royal Grace Kelly’s beautiful gown in the 1955 movie, To catch a thief.

Sarah Ferguson’s daughter stepped out in a divine dress by American designer Zac Posen, complete with a structured bodice and flowing skirt. The only differences were Eugenie’s modest long sleeves, instead of the strapless neckline, and the pastel hue that the Royal family website said was inspired by the beauty of Windsor and the blush of an English rose.

“Mr. Posen was inspired by the White Rose of York,” the website added. In another subtle tribute to Eugenie’s legacy, Zac made sure the White Rose of York was embroidered on both the shoulder and the back, which held the cape together.

The dress, made from British mill Biddle Sawyer Silk, was displayed at Windsor Castle alongside Eugenie’s first wedding dress, her sister Princess Beatrice’s bridesmaid dress and the dress of her bridesmaid Theodora Williams.

In the audio guide, the royal explained: “I wanted something reminiscent of Grace Kelly in To catch a thief so I showed that as a reference and Zac found this floss he found in Manchester. Every draped effect, every detail, every button, everything is meticulously made by him and his team.”

Princess Eugenie wore a Peter Pilotto dress for her wedding ceremony

Grace Kelly may also have been the inspiration behind the Princess of Wales’ iconic wedding dress. She got married Prince Rainier III of Monaco in 1956 in Monaco Cathedral with around 600 guests, while more than 30 million viewers watched from their homes.

The movie star wore a beautiful, high-necked lace wedding dress designed by Helen Rose, who worked on it for six weeks with the help of three dozen seamstresses. It bore several similarities to Princess Kate’s long-sleeved dress by Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen when she married Prince William in 2011.
