PRINCE William and Kate look more loved up than ever as they were snapped sharing a sweet embrace after a charity polo match in Windsor yesterday.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge put on a very rare display of public affection as they celebrated Prince William's win at the charity polo match at the Guards Polo Club in Windsor.

Kate embraced her husband William and gave him a kiss on the cheek after his team won, sharing the tender moment together.

The Duchess of Cambridge wore a stunning £1,352 dress designed by Emilia Wickstead for the occasion, and was joined by the family cocker spaniel, Orla as she sipped Pimms and watched William compete.

Reportedly organisers announced that the event had raised £1 million for good causes.

Charities receiving donations from the Polo Day include: London’s Air Ambulance Charity, East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices and a homeless organisation the Passage.

This year's Polo event knocked last year's charity donations out the park, after they raised £500,000 in 2021.

Meanwhile Her Majesty the Queen has returned to Windsor Castle after spending some time at her Sandringham Estate.

Queen Elizabeth wasted no time and as soon as she was back in Windsor, she was spotted in a black Range Rover on her way to visit her beloved horses at their yard.

    Meghan and Harry set on different paths, expert claims

    The royal couple are set to travel down different roads, Neil Sean has noted.

    Meghan has set her heart on the White House, as she begins her career in politics, while Harry has become somewhat of a “house husband.”

    Speaking on his YouTube channel, Mr Sean claimed: “As we’ve found out Meghan Markle says that she definitely will be going to Washington to support the causes that are close to her heart.

    “While she said previously that she doesn’t demand or require a political career, it seems more and more that Meghan shines in the spotlight moving forward in a totally different avenue.

    “Prince Harry, the real royal, seems to be stepping back and becoming something of a househusband.”

    Prince Andrew could wave goodbye to the rest of his titles

    It is thought that under new laws he might have more titles removed.

    Reportedly 80 per cent of Londoners want to see his Duke or York title removed, which was given to him upon his wedding to Sarah Ferguson in the 1980s.

    Members of the Commons including Rachael Maskell believe he has not lived up to the public's expectations and therefore could see the rest of his titles removed.

    Queen snubbed Djokovic after he was held in Australian detention centre

    Novak Djokovic's father called on the Queen to protect his son's "human rights".

    His father told the Serbian media: "I call on the Queen of Britian, Elizabeth, the leader of the Commonwealth, to intervene and protect the human rights of my son Novak Djokovic and stop the political prosecution that has been carried out against him since he came to Australia."

    This came after his entry into Australia was denied as he didn't meet vaccination requirements, despite claiming he had a medical exemption.

    It was thought the Queen made no response to the request.

    John McEnroe called the Royal Family 'class system gone mad' over their Wimbledon role

    The US former America tennis star, slammed the tradition of the tennis players bowing before the royal family.

    McEnroe highlighted his opinions on the traditions of Wimbledon in his 2017 book: But, Seriously, he wrote: "As for all the bowing and curtsying - and we're not just talking about the Queen here, we're talking about some pretty minor royals - what was all that about?

    "This was the class system gone mad, the opposite of a meritocracy, where hard work is rewarded and people are respected because they've actually done something, not because they're been born on the right side of the tracks."

    Meghan accused of inserting ‘British drama into American politics’

    Meghan Markle, who is well known for her progressive views, has been criticised by an anonymous US politician for her words on Roe Vs Wade.

    Roe Vs Wade has ensured for decades that women have the right to bodily autonomy in terms of abortion.

    However, in recent weeks, the Supreme Court announced their decision to repeal womens’ right to abortion.

    Meghan has been very vocal in her criticism of this choice.

    However, an anonymous US congressman has come out saying: “This is just another attempt from the ex-royals to insert their British drama into American politics.

    “I don’t think anyone on this side of the pond cares for Meghan Markle’s opinion on killing babies.”

    Speaking to the Daily Mail, he added: “However, I think her running for President would be a great episode for The Crown.”

    Exclusive: Inside the mystery sale of Prince Andrew’s abandoned mansion

    Sunninghill Park, the half-constructed mansion once owned by Prince Andrew, remains empty, almost a decade since its sale to a Kazakh oligarch.

    The sale was shrouded in mystery, and some believe some unscrupulous dealings may have taken place.

    The Duke of York sold his and Sarah Ferguson‘s former six-bedroom love nest Sunninghill Park in 2007 for £15m to billionaire oligarch Timur Kulibayev, son-in-law of Kazakh dictator Nursultan Nazarbayev.

    This was despite the property being on the market for £12million.

    This led to questions being asked about Andrew’s close ties to the Kazakhstan regime, which was known for its brutal rule.

    But now, seven years on, the property remains abandoned and incomplete, with no change in sight.

    A neighbour told the Sun Online: “I don’t know who is there. It’s not been sold recently. It’s still in the development phase. 

    “We’ve only been here two and a half years and it’s been like that the whole time.”

    Harry & Meghan’s pal reveals new royal slogan, after the firm ‘ditched’ ‘never complain never explain’

    The Royal Family has long used the guarded approach, staying silent on matters with the potential to spark controversy or upset.

    But the times are changing and, seemingly, so are the royals.

    Now, many suggest that “if the royal family have something to say, they should say it.”

    And journalist Omid Scobie, who penned the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s biography Finding Freedom, believes a new strategy is already creeping in.

    Writing for Yahoo!news, Scobie said: “Never complain, never explain may slowly be becoming a thing of the past at the palace (well, according to Prince William at least), but a different order of the day has quickly risen within the institution of the monarchy: deflect and distract.

    “You see, when the Prince of Wales was forced to announce via his spokesman that he will never again accept plastic bags filled with €500 notes for his charities, one of his senior aides also briefed journalists with adorable details of the heir’s first time meeting granddaughter Lilibet last month.”

  • Harry ‘will be bald’ by the time he’s 40

    PRINCE Harry will be “completely bald” by the time he is 40, a top hair transplant surgeon said.

    Dr Manish Mittal says a rapidly receding Duke of Sussex will need to act fast if he wants to halt or reverse hair loss.

    He said Harry, 37, can either embrace his baldness like brother William, 40, and dad Charles, 73, get a transplant, or get fitted for a wig.

    Dr Mittal said: “At the speed it’s receding, it is likely that Harry will be completely bald in two years, certainly by the time he’s 40.”

    He said that if Harry wanted hair surgery he would need to take hairloss stabilising medication before two ops placing around 2,000 individual hair grafts, 18 months apart. The cost for a VIP is £40,000.
