Morocco summons French Ambassador on torture allegations

first_imgRabat – Minister delegate for foreign affairs Mbarka Bouaida summoned, on Friday at the ministry’s headquarters, France’s ambassador in Rabat Charles Fries to express Morocco’s strong protest following information about a complaint lodged against the Director General of Territory Surveillance (DGST) concerning an alleged torture complicity in Morocco. A statement by the foreign affairs ministry said that Bouaida affirmed that Morocco flatly rejects the cavalier procedure that runs counter diplomatic usages and the baseless judiciary cases that were cited. The minister delegate said that this grave, unprecedented incident in relations between the two countries is likely to undermine the climate of trust and mutual respect which has always prevailed between Morocco and France.  The Kingdom of Morocco insists on providing urgent and accurate explanations for this unacceptable step and holding those responsible accountable.last_img read more

General Assembly adopts 217 billion peacekeeping budget

Acting on the recommendations of its administrative and budgetary committee – which drafted and approved the proposed budget earlier this month – the UN’s 191-member governing Assembly adopted a resolution yesterday, covering peacekeeping finances for 2003-2004, including some $70.29 million for the maintenance of a peacekeeping support account, and some $21.51 million for the UN Logistics Base in Brindisi, Italy. Compared with the appropriation of some $2.6 billion for the current period, the new peacekeeping budget represents a reduction of some $430 million, mostly due to the closing of the UN Mission in Bosnia and Herzegovina (UNMIBH) and the downsizing of the Organization’s operations in Kosovo, Timor-Leste, Sierra Leone and Lebanon. Since the financial year of peacekeeping operations runs from 1 July to 30 June, most of the 34 draft resolutions and decisions adopted by the Assembly yesterday centred on budgets of individual missions and strategic deployment stocks. The Assembly also dealt with the disposal of the assets of several closed missions, including those in Angola, Tajikistan, Liberia, Rwanda and the Central African Republic. Acting on the concept of strategic deployment stocks, which was introduced last year in order to enhance the UN’s rapid deployment capacity, the Assembly extended to 30 June 2004 the validity period of previously-approved resources of some $141.55 million. Creation of the stocks will allow the Organization to deploy one complex mission per year. It also involves expansion of the role of the Logistics Base. As an operational arm for the strategic deployment stocks, the Base would also become a training and conference centre, and a support base for air operations. The Assembly requested Secretary-General Kofi Annan to consider the merits of relocating all Logistics Division resources to Brindisi, as well as those related to communications and information technology services for peacekeeping. read more

Island States at UN Assembly call for stronger global partnerships to tackle

“We are particularly supportive of the recommendation for stronger and deeper partnerships between global and regional organisations to promote international peace and security” Prime Minister Anerood Jugnauth of Mauritius told the Assembly’s 70th annual General Debate , lauding Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s initiative to review peace buildings mechanisms.He cited the collective efforts of the UN, the African Union (AU), the Southern African Development Community (SADC), the Indian Ocean Commission and other regional economic communities in resolving the recent political stalemate in Madagascar.Similar collaboration has also enabled the AU to deploy robust operations in complex situations in Mali, the Central African Republic and Somalia, he noted.On climate change, Mr. Jugnauth said small island developing States (SIDS) like his own, which lies in the Indian Ocean off the east coast of Africa, are particularly vulnerable to natural hazards, voicing the hope the global conference on the issue in Paris in December will succeed. “Mauritius believes that the greatest challenge to peace and security in the years to come will be climate change which requires our utmost attention now,” he declared.“Let there be a carve-out for SIDS, the most vulnerable of all the least developed countries and Africa, to enable them to implement fully the necessary mitigation and adaptation measures.Let financing be available and predictable in addition to the sharing of technology to address a collective threat.”From the Atlantic side of Africa, Sao Tome and Principe also highlighted the importance of cooperation. Foreign Minister Manuel Salvador Dos Ramos of Sao Tome and Principe addresses the general debate of the General Assembly’s seventieth session. UN Photo/Cia Pak“Located in the Gulf of Guinea, where we have seen a fresh outbreak of acts of maritime piracy, terrorism, drug trafficking, oil heists, and other transnational organized crimes, Sao Tome and Principe understands that the international community must combine its efforts to put a stop to such acts,” Foreign Minister Manuel Salvador dos Ramos told the Assembly.He cited various existing partnerships, both bilateral and multilateral, and the cooperation among the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS), the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and the Gulf of Guinea Commission (GGC) in promoting significant progress against criminal organizations in the region. On climate change, his country hopes that agreement, once it is reached, will enhance the international obligation of all signatory parties to make funds available for the continued scientific monitoring of climate issues and the transfer of technology to developing countries. From Tuvalu in the South Pacific, Foreign Minister Taukelina Finikaso noted that climate is an existential issue for his small island nation, whose highest point is only 15 feet above sea level.Foreign Minister Taukelina Finikaso of Tuvalu addresses the general debate of the General Assembly’s seventieth session. UN Photo/Kim Haughton“Sea level rise continues to inundate many of our small island coastlines and inundate our food plantations,” he said. “That is a security issue, an urgent one and an inter-generational one. It is an existential issue for Tuvalu and other Pacific countries and also bigger populated countries in the flood plains, and wilt displace many people.“Whilst many of our citizens are opting to migrate on their own terms because of existential issues, migration does not solve global warming and the UN does not sanction climate change migrants as refugees. That is a dilemma for us in Tuvalu.” He stressed that the Paris conference must reduce greenhouse gas emissions to keep the global average temperature rise to beiow1.5 degrees Celsius, as well as provide credible, timely public finance and clarity from developed countries to the pledges of $100 billion for climate change finances.Kiribati, a Pacific Island State straddling the Equator, stressed the need for a collective global effort to help those nations most threatened by climate change. “We cannot do it alone,” Natanaera Kirata, Minister of Public Works and Utilities said.Minister of Public Works and Utilities of Kiribati Natanaera Kirata addresses the general debate of the General Assembly’s seventieth session. UN Photo/Kim Haughton“We call for new and accessible financial resources to assist the most vulnerable to adapt and build resilience to climate change,” he added. “We must all step up our national and collective efforts to mitigate global greenhouse gas emissions. We must urge major greenhouse gas emitters to do their part.”He said the new challenges demanded all the resources available to the global community since sustainable development and global challenges such as climate change should not be confined to the sphere of Governments only.“Let us call on those with the ability to assist and who have a contribution to make, to join in the global dialogue and more importantly, join urgent action to address this major challenge,” he declared. read more

Princess Eugenies Royal wedding procession route Where to see the newlyweds

Prince George, five, will be joined by fellow page boy Louis de Givenchy – the six year-old son of JP Morgan banking executive Olivier de Givenchy and his wife Zoe. Robbie Williams’ daughter Theodora will be among the team of pageboys and bridesmaids, Buckingham Palace has confirmed. The other bridesmaids will be Peter and Autumn Phillips’ daughters Savannah and Isla, and Zara Tindall’s spirited four-year-old Mia, along with Maud Windsor, who is Eugenie’s goddaughter and the daughter of Lord Frederick Windsor and his actress wife Sophie Winkleman.Maud is sure to be guided by her classmate Prince George; the two are in the same class at St Thomas’ School in Battersea.The Queen’s youngest grandchildren, 14-year-old Lady Louise Mountbatten-Windsor, and 10-year-old Viscount Severn, who are the children of the Earl and Countess of Wessex, will take on the role of Special Attendants. Dr Anthony WallersteinerCredit:Andrew Crowley Dean of Windsor, David Conner As the children arrived, one of the pageboys fell on the steps. Moments later, 14-year-old Lady Louise Windsor, wearing a blue dress who was minding the children had her dress blown up by the strong wind. 9:59AMBargain Windsor hotels on offer to lure tourist to Princess Eugenie’s Royal wedding  Princess Eugenie’s dressCredit:Reuters Punters are making a last-minute gamble on Suzannah or Stella McCartney being the designer behind Princess Eugenie’s wedding gown.Erdem remains the favourite at the bookmakers at 2/1, but Ladbrokes said there has been a flurry of bets for British design brand Suzannah, with odds cut from 9/2 to 3/1.Meanwhile, Paddy Power has suspended betting on Eugenie wearing Stella McCartney after a flood of bets.Suzannah was founded by Suzannah Crabb and is known for creating wedding dresses with vintage charm and a modern edge.McCartney designed the halter neck gown Meghan wore to her evening wedding party.A Paddy Power spokesman said: “We’ve seen a lot of action on Stella McCartney to be the designer of Princess Eugenie’s wedding dress this morning, forcing us to stop taking bets.”The level of wagers could indicate insider knowledge, and the brand seems a good fit for the day with their positive environmental standpoint.”Jenny Packham is at 5/1 with Ladbrokes, Preen is 6/1 and Suzanne Neville is 8/1.Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “We know Princess Eugenie’s flying the flag for British designers, and punters are beginning to wonder if an upset could be on the cards for the likes of Suzannah or Preen, leaving Erdem to miss out on the big day.”Eugenie has already revealed she has chosen a British-based designer, and that she was set on the style she wanted from the start of her weddingplanning.”(The dress) is the one thing that I was really decisive about,” the princess told British Vogue magazine.”As soon as we announced the wedding, I knew the designer, and the look, straight away. I never thought I’d be the one who knew exactly what I like, but I’ve been pretty on top of it.”Erdem is often Eugenie’s go-to choice and she wore the brand, founded by Canadian-born London-based designer Erdem Moralioglu, on the day her engagement was announced.Ralph & Russo, who made the gown for the Duchess of Sussex’s official engagement photo, are 14/1 to have been chosen by Eugenie.Eugenie has told how her wedding will be an environmentally friendly, anti-plastic affair. They shared two shy kisses on the steps, one just outside the chapel, and another before they boarded the Scottish State Coach for a public ride around Windsor.As Eugenie and Jack left the castle, they passed the Galilee Porch at St George’s Chapel, where they were waved off by other senior members of the royal family, including the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.The carriage continued onto Windsor High Street, giving the couple the opportunity to see the well-wishers lining the streets for their special day. Andrea Bocelli  A star-studded gallery, which included Demi Moore, Kate Moss, Robbie Williams and Naomi Campbell, were treated to a reading from Princess Beatrice of York from The Great Gatsby.The guests will prepare for the evening reception – believed to be at the York family home, Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park, with celebrations set to continue into the evening.Eugenie, 28, younger daughter of the queen’s third child Prince Andrew and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, exchanged vows with Mr Brooksbank, a 32-year-old drinks executive, at Windsor Castle.The ninth-in-line to the throne is following in the footsteps of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who also chose the venue for their wedding in May. “She does have to take a deep breath before these occasions,” said the source. “She’s avoided major royal events in the past and it wasn’t easy for her to go to Harry and Meghan’s wedding.”The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expected to attend the wedding – in a much more relaxed capacity than their previous trip to Windsor, no doubt – before their 20-day trip abroad, which begins on October 16. On their itinerary is Sydney for the Invictus Games, Fiji and New Zealand.The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are also expected to attend; however Prince Louis, who was less than a month old by the time of Prince Harry’s wedding and was not present, is likely to be cared for by a nanny close by.Other royal relatives are likely to include The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester and Kent, Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, and the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester – all of whom are neighbours of the engaged couple at Kensington Palace. The Princess Royal, the Queen’s granddaughter Zara Tindall and her husband Mark Tindall are also expected to be on the guest list.It is not yet confirmed whether any members of other royal families from around the world will attend the ceremony.Mr Brooksbank is the son of George Brooksbank, a 68 year-old chartered accountant and company director, and his wife Nicola, 64, both of whom are expected to play a central role in the wedding.  10:32AMPrincess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank a ‘perfect couple’, says dean The royal couple were carried around the streets of Windsor, passing the Royal family having been named husband and wife. The rain held off, but the carriage on the Scottish State Coach had a cover as a precaution. Originally known as the Cambridge Coach, the Scottish State Coach was remodelled in 1968–9 on Her Majesty’s instruction to create a coach specifically for Scotland. The emblems of the Order of the Thistle, the highest order of chivalry in Scotland, and the Scottish version of the Royal Arms were painted on the sides.The carriage will be pulled by four Windsor Grey horses: Plymouth, Milford Haven, Tyrone and Storm. There will be two outriders: Claudia and Sir Basil – the same quartet that pulled the Duke and Duchess of Sussex around Windsor in May. Windsor Grey horses play an important role in the ceremonial life of the Royal Family and the nation, and have been drawing the carriages of successive Monarchs and Members of the Royal Family since Queen Victoria’s reign.The carriage and horses are housed at the Royal Mews, Buckingham Palace. 9:25AMCelebrity guests begin arriving at a blustery Windsor 6:18PMNo arrests as wedding goes off without a hitch Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, and Princess Beatrice arrived in the same car and waved at crowds gathered in Windsor. The Duchess of York is wearing a Jess Collett hat and a green dress by local Ascot dressmaker Emma Louise Design.Fergie is carrying a vintage Manolo Blahnik bag, which was carried by her own mother at the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of York in 1986.  6:06PM’Why aren’t you holding my hand?’: Lip reader unpicks ceremony Princess Eugenie took the lead as her new husband appeared to struggle with nerves during their nuptials, according to a professional lipreader.The royal bride initiated the couple’s two tentative kisses on the West Steps of St George’s Chapel, telling Jack Brooksbank “let’s kiss” before the waiting cameras.  Pixie Geldolf “Let’s kiss,” Eugenie told her husbandCredit:Getty Dr Anthony Wallersteiner, who has been headmaster of Stowe School for the past 16 years, told The Telegraph: “Jack is very kind, very caring. He was a prefect and head of house and he was very good with the younger children, those who were a bit lonely and homesick.“He’s a very talented tennis player and an all round great athlete. He played in the Coldstream Cup, a CCF competition that requires a lot of grit and determination.“I found his headmaster’s report for the year he left in 2004 and it read: “He has the making of an exceptional leader, he is naturally calm and generous. He will be a real asset in all areas of his future life. There are rumours George Clooney and his wife Amal will be in Windsor once again this October as the A-list actor has a connection to the groom. Wine merchant Mr Brooksbank is a brand ambassador for Casamigos Tequila, a company owned by George Clooney.Rande Gerber, the husband of Cindy Crawford, is also a founder of Casamigos, which means the couple may have received an invitation too. Princess Eugenie is close friends with model Cara Delevingne, singer Ellie Goulding, and the Duke of Sussex’s former girlfriends Chelsy Davy and Cressida Bonas, all of whom are expected to attend. Karlie Kloss accompanied Ellie Goulding and the princess on a trip to Jordan earlier this year, leading some to wonder if she will make an appearance in Windsor in October. Artist Tracey Emin is also rumoured be to attending – although singers Elton John and Ed Sheeran have reportedly had to turn down their invitations because they are on tour.The daughter of Robbie Williams, five-year-old Theodora Rose, has been confirmed as a flower girl at the wedding, which means we can expect to see the singer and his wife, Ayda Field, in the pews. The ex-Take That star and his wife have been friends with Eugenie and her sister, Princess Beatrice, for several years.  1:27PMWho is royal nutritionist Gabriela Peacock?

The Duke of York is a patron of the RPO.James Williams said: “It has been a great pleasure to work with HRH Princess Eugenie and Mr Jack Brooksbank to plan the music for their special day and we wish the couple much happiness for their future together.”The internationally renowned singer-songwriter Andrea Bocelli will perform two pieces during the service. Princess Eugenie looks beautiful in a full-skirted, off shoulder design by design duo Peter Pilotto and Christopher de Vos, stalwarts of London Fashion Week.They met whilst studying Antwerp. Peter is Austrian/ Italian and de Vos is Belgian/ Peruvian. The choice is a surprise one from the Princess who had hinted that she would chose a designer with eco credentials, such as Stella McCartneyThe brand is known for its innovative textile design, paired with a modern feminine silhouette. Princess Eugenie met the designers when she was co-hosting an event in support of women artists. Her Royal Highness has been wearing designs by the brand for several years.Princess Eugenie, Mr Pilotto and Mr De Vos have worked closely together on the design of the dress.The designers undertook archive research into previous dresses worn by Members of the Royal Family and identified a silhouette.The designDuring several fittings the dress was developed layer by layer, constructing it from the corset and the complex underskirt to the fitted bodice and full pleated skirt.The dress features a neckline that folds around the shoulders to a low back that drapes into a flowing full length train. The baker, whose business is based in Fulham in west London, said about being chosen by the Queen’s granddaughter and her fiance: “Of course I was nervous, but at the same time really, really excited.”The cake will consist of three tiers of red velvet and two of chocolate sponge cake covered with butter cream, white icing and decorated with sugar work with an autumnal theme.Other ingredients include vanilla essence, vanilla bean paste and red food colouring to give the cake its distinctive hue.Ms Cabot said about the couple: “They were very excited about having red velvet, during the tastings red velvet and chocolate came out top.”It’s a lovely thing to have at this time of year as well – it’s a nice rich cake.”Not one cake is ever the same and this was extra because of the time of year and they wanted to keep it so seasonal – it was a real joy.”Ms Cabot was initially invited by the office of Eugenie’s father, the Duke of York, to meet the couple and discuss their wedding cake in early July – after supplying decorated bespoke biscuits to one of Andrew’s Pitch@Palace events. 9:46AMChoristers, 11 and 12, to take centre stage after shining at Harry and Meghan’s wedding Earlier this year, George and Amal Clooney almost stole the show when they graced the small town of Windsor for the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, with Amal’s mustard Stella McCartney dress and George’s well-groomed salt and pepper beard setting social media abuzz. There is speculation we may see the A-list couple in Windsor again this Friday; the couple are rumoured to be attending the wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank – which will also take place in Windsor Castle’s St George’s Chapel.Cindy Crawford, Eddie Redmayne and Robbie Williams could also be on the guest list, as well as senior members of the royal family and selected members of the public. 850 people will reportedly be in the chapel, with a further 1,200 expected in the ground; here is everything we know so far about the, from royal family members to celebrity friends.

The order of service for the wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank is available below:  10:45AMBridesmaids and pageboys arrive According to her website, Jeremy Clarkson, Anna Friel, Donna Air, and Alan Carr have all praised Peacock’s services. She also works as a nutritionist for Ten Pilates, a £3,300-a-year health club in Notting Hill, west London, which says its mission is to “celebrate endorphins”.Peacock sells a range of powders with names such as Slim Me, Calm Me, Protein Me, and Energise Me – each costs £100 for a month’s supply.The bestseller, Slim Me, is a gel sachet containing glucomannan, which swells up in the stomach to reduce hunger and balance blood sugar levels.Princess Eugenie spoke earlier this year about the tough exercise regime she is following before her wedding, taking an hour’s exercise at 7am each morning.Prince Harry, meanwhile, is believed to have lost half-a-stone in the run-up to his wedding with the help of Ms Peacock.Not everybody is so supportive of the powders, however, with Frankie Phillips, a specialist with the British Dietetic Association, warning that supplements like ‘Slim Me’ will not help with long-term weight loss.“Losing weight is not a quick journey and gimmicks which might help in the short term can be less than helpful for meaningful long-term weight loss, which requires a complete rethink of lifestyle to ensure that the weight lost is not piled back on again when you stop using a product,” she told The Mail on Sunday. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, normally reserved when it comes to public displays of affection, were seen holding hands in St George’s Chapel – a tactile display that could be down to the recent arrival of Prince Louis.”The couple are clearly very in love, but normally not very keen to show it,” the expert said.She explained: “Children can be a bit of a challenge, but sometimes, three children in, when couples have a bit more experience, it can take them back to their honeymoon period.”Today they looked besotted with one another.”It was almost the most stunning moment of the wedding for some people.” Gabriela PeacockCredit:David M Bennett/Getty 8:21AMCelebrity friends Liv Tyler arrivesCredit:PA His role would be “very small”, he added, saying: “I just have to walk slowly.””I think preparations are reasonably on course. i’m not what I would describe as intimately involved in the planning.”The idea to marry at St George’s Chapel came directly from the Queen, the Duke said. “It doesn’t make any difference who you are, all the approvals go through the Queen anyway,” he said. “The Queen very firmly said St George’s is where you’re having the wedding so I said aye aye mam, turn to the right, salute and carry on.”We hope for good weather, we don’t know – whatever happens in October.” Calling his future son-in-law an “extraordinary young man with one of the kindest hearts I know”, the Duke said: “It’s wonderful watching them interact together.”I have huge hopes and i’m sure they will be massively in love for the rest of their lives.”I’m sure she will be an absolutely outstanding bride.” 9:43AMFlashback: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s royal wedding Earlier this year, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex exchanged vows in front of more than 30 members of the Royal family, which give us an idea of what to expect for the upcoming royal nuptials.The princess’ grandmother, the Queen, is sure to attend – as is her uncle, Prince Charles. However the Duchess of Cornwall will not be attending, instead undertaking a a prior engagement at a primary school’s harvest festival celebrations in Scotland.And the Duke of Edinburgh will make a last minute decision as to whether he will attend the event, royal sources have told TheTelegraph. At 97, Prince Philip now operates on a “wake up and see how I feel” basis, according to insiders.A well-placed source said: “The Duke of Edinburgh may not go to the wedding, just as he and the Queen did not attend Prince Louis christening in July.“The royals are like any family in the sense they try to make family occasions but it is not always possible. I’m sure he would love to be there to see his granddaughter get married but no one would blame the Duke if he didn’t feel up to attending the wedding on the day – he’s only three years off 100.”Naturally the Duke and Duchess of York, Princess Eugenie’s parents, will play a large role in the proceedings. A friend of the Duchess said she was feeling nervous about being reunited with her former in-laws after being treated as somewhat of a royal outcast since she divorced Andrew in 1996. Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank interviewed by ITV This Morning's husband and wife duo Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford “The date of the wedding was known eight months ago so it’s strange Camilla organised her house party this weekend.”A source close to the couple denied there was any ill-feeling, saying: “They get on very well, the couple has no issue with it – they have known about the diary clash for some time.”They added that Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall “host events every day throughout this period every year.” Sophie Cabot making the cake Chelsy Davy, left, arrives for the wedding of Princess Eugenie of York and Jack BrooksbankCredit:PA According to Buckingham Palace, the carriage will journey through the grounds of Windsor Castle, enter the town at Castle Hill and proceed along Windsor High Street, then return to the castle grounds at Cambridge Gate. Princess Eugenie and Mr Brooksbank will also invite members of the Windsor community, representatives from their favourite charities, residents of the castle and some Royal Household staff to stand in the grounds, along with children from the local schools which Princess Eugenie attended.  “Being a model meant long days, extensive travel, and frequently staying in hotels with little choice with regards to food,” she told health blogger Natalie Glaze. “I experienced headaches, low energy, and frequently felt ill. Often, when it came to food, I had to just ‘grab and go’ and the processed foods I found myself picking up never made me feel or look great.”She noticed that by cutting out the processed foods and boosting her consumption of vegetables, fish, and complex wholegrains, she felt a “radical improvement in the way I felt”, with “buckets more energy”.Peacock eventually turned her hand to nutritional advice – a growing industry, with sales of sports nutrition products jumping from £52 million in 2013 to £66 million in 2015.She says she was “head-hunted” by Dr Tim Evans, the Queen’s GP, to become Head of Nutrition at his private clinic, the Grace Belgravia in central London.Here, she provides diet and lifestyle advice for a group she describes as “London’s fashion and celebrity elite”. 11:24AMCambridges’ nanny keeps youngsters in check Princess Eugenie's dress 8:39AMRoyalist veteran who camped out for four nights to see Charles and Diana’s wedding returns for fourth royal wedding Princess Eugenie’s tiaraCredit:Reuters Credit:Jane Barlow/PA Wire  The wedding cake 7:27AMGuestlist: Who we think has made the cut The Duchess of Sussex arrivesCredit:PA Jack Brooksbank, who has a background in hospitality, is in charge of the drinks and has revealed Casamigos tequila will be on the menu.Mr Brooksbank works as the UK brand ambassador for Casamigos, the tequila company owned by George Clooney and his friend Rande Gerber, who is married to the supermodel Cindy Crawford. 10:30AMHarry and Meghan return to Windsor 8:11AMFamily members The bridesmaids and page boys, including Prince George and Princess CharlotteCredit:PA “Eugenie is lovely.

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh outside Windsor Castle Meanwhile, a wedding with 850 guests meant that hundreds of women were showcasing the height of fashion, resulting in a dizzying array of hats an fascinators to admire, or otherwise.As ladies were choosing head wear for the big day, some may have recalled the infamous hat dubbed a turkey twizzler that Princess Beatrice wore to William and Kate’s wedding.Standout fascinators included Poppy Delevingne’s blue feathered piece which could be seen rising above the congregation from the back of the chapel, and a yellow netted piece adorned with small balls of coloured fluff.One woman matched her red headpiece with red-framed sunglasses which she kept on as she made her way through the church, and another man in the congregation also sported sunglasses before the service began.Popular culture was not just reflected in the selected guests, but was woven into the ceremony itself through music, literature and art.There was Andrea Bocelli’s spine-tingling rendition of Ave Maria, a reading of an extract taken from The Great Gatsby, and an image of abstract art called Here by Mark Bradford printed on the Order of Service.The atmosphere created by one of Bocelli’s performances during the ceremony was interrupted at one point by the ringing of a mobile phone.The inclusion of the artwork was likely a nod to Eugenie’s love of art and her job as a director at the contemporary art gallery Hauser & Wirth in London.The evening festivities at the York family home may well draw inspiration from the groom’s job as brand ambassador at Casamigos tequila. Leo added that he has been chatting with friends about what colour dress the Queen will wear to her granddaughter’s wedding.He said: “I’m saying green because last time it was yellow but one of my friends is saying pink.”Leo said he found out just a few weeks after Meghan and Harry’s wedding that he would also be singing when Eugenie married, and has been practising hard with fellow his choristers during the intervening months.Leo joked: “My mum said she would be sitting in front of the TV waving her Union Jack for me.” Princess BeatriceCredit:Reuters The royal couple at the front of the chapel 9:33AMPink is the early colour of choice Naomi Campbell arrives ahead of the wedding The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh outside Windsor CastleCredit:PA 11:10AMPrincess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank exchange vows The royal couple at the front of the chapelCredit:PA 10:53AMPrince Philip arrives at Windsor amid speculation he might not attend The newlyweds kiss on the steps as Royal family gains its newest member The newlyweds kiss on the steps as Royal family gains its newest memberCredit:PA Naomi Campbell arrives ahead of the weddingCredit:PA 10:50AMCalamity on the steps ridesmaids for the wedding of Princess Eugenie to Jack Brooksbank at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle The ceremony took place at the castle’s 15th Century St George’s Chapel with the Dean of Windsor David Conner officiating.  6:00AMThe big day is upon us 7:59AMPrincess Eugenie hints dress will not hide signs of her scoliosis surgery, saying it’s important to ‘show people your scars’  It was revealed earlier this week that the Duchess of Cornwall will not attend Princess Eugenie’s wedding, the only senior member of the royal family to miss the celebrations, reports Camilla Tominey. Clarence House has said Camilla had a “previous commitment” attending a local school harvest festival near Birkhall, Charles’s home at Balmoral. Two other jobs were also announced this week.The alleged “snub” will fuel rumours that there is a royal rift at the heart of the monarchy. Prince Charles’s wife Camilla and Sarah Ferguson have never seen eye to eye because of Fergie’s loyalty to Princess Diana, while there is also tension between the Prince of Wales and his younger brother Prince Andrew, often referred to as the Queen’s favourite son.But there is another reason why Camilla cannot make the wedding, The Telegraph can reveal.Sources have told this paper Camilla is not going to the Friday nuptials at Windsor Castle because she is also hosting a shooting party at her Scottish home this weekend.An insider said: “The truth is that Camilla has a house party for a few friends.“They are arriving on Friday and will be there over the weekend.

When they have their wings out they’re huge.”The Duchess said nearby Lochnagar was a “special place” and told how she enjoyed cross-country skiing “because you can go for miles and miles, but it’s very hard work”.Camilla presented the pupils with books for the school library and she received a posy and card from the children. 9:10AMThe second royal wedding in numbers The low back feature on the dress was at the specific request of Princess Eugenie who had surgery aged 12 to correct scoliosis.The fabricThe fabric was designed by Mr Pilotto and Mr De Vos at their studio in East London and includes a number of symbols that are meaningful to Princess Eugenie as motifs.The symbols are a Thistle for Scotland acknowledging the couple’s fondness for Balmoral; a Shamrock for Ireland as a reflection of the Bride’s maternal family; the York Rose; and ivy representing the couple’s home.Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos have reinterpreted these symbols in a garland of rope like motifs, woven into a jacquard of silk, cotton and viscose blend.Once the artwork was completed, it was translated into a jacquard weave in the Como region of Italy. The result is a very modern looking fabric using a highly intricate weaving technique.Jewellery Princess Eugenie is wearing the Greville Emerald Kokoshnik Tiara, lent to her by Her Majesty The Queen.

That was quite a big step for the Duke of Edinburgh.”However, Ms James said the duchess may not have even been aware of the interaction.She said: “The Duchess of York was sat in front of Philip, so unless she had eyes in the back of her head, she wouldn’t have known.”She probably didn’t want to take the risk of turning round.”However, they weren’t the only ones with prominent body language on display.Ms James noted that “it was fascinating that William and Kate were holding hands”.

So humble and generous – that’s two words…”The princess went on to say her “big sissy” Princess Beatrice was someone “I’ve looked up to her whole life” and that she’s the biggest supporter of  “team Eug and Jack”.Asked about the moment she will walk down the aisle with her father the Duke of York, Eugenie replied: “It’s nerve-wracking and a bit scary and all the things that come with getting married, but at the end of the day you get to marry the person you love.”In reference to Jack, she added: “And you’re going to be at the end of the aisle, and I’m going to be running towards you!”Quizzed about whether his fiancee had become a “bridezilla”, Jack said no, adding: “Eugenie has been amazing.”She’s been incredible, she has the ability to do a million things at once in her brain, including working as well as organising everything to do with the wedding.” Here is all you need to know about what will happen when in Windsor today:  Inside the afternoon reception, the centrepiece was without doubt the 400-egg autumnal cake. Designer Sophie Cabot said she was “honoured” to have been asked to make the royal wedding cake – which features enormous quantities of eggs, butter and flour.Ms Cabot began baking in earnest in Buckingham Palace’s kitchens on Wednesday for Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s big day on Friday.The five-tier red velvet and chocolate cake will contain up to 400 eggs, at least 53 packs of unsalted butter, 15 kilograms of organic self raising flour, and 20 kilos of sugar.Ms Cabot, 33, said she felt “very honoured they have selected me”, and said about her first meeting with Eugenie and Jack in the summer, when she brought cake samples: “The couple were very relaxed, very comfortable. I got the feeling the cake was something they were very excited about.”It was a fun meeting as well because I don’t think it’s every day you have a meeting about cake and you get to try cake.” 10:11AMRobbie Williams arrives as his mother’s hat is blown from her head Ms Thorp said: “I was here for Harry and Meghan’s wedding. I never want to miss out on a royal occasion so I made a special effort to get here. “We both believe that we’re never going to see another royal wedding in our lifetime. It’s a chance to experience history- to be honest I don’t think the English get the side of it. “The royals have such sense of their duty and I’m here to celebrate that.”Claire Carson, 54, a self described royal fanatic who has attended every wedding since Charles and Diana and even slept on the street to catch the occasion in 1981 said: “I think Eugenie’s dress is elegant and classy. The shape of her tiara perfectly matched her dress, it suits here to a ‘t’. “It really reminded me of something Grace Kelly would have worn.  I think Jack looked nervous, but he looked really good. “I think anyone would be pleased if he was their son in law. He didn’t look like he had had a tequila, but his nerves made him look like he needed one.” 11:54AMGuests provided with rain macs as part of goodie bags Front row guests in the nave included broadcaster Stephen Fry, singer James Blunt, Richard Banson’s son Sam, and artist Tracey Emin who chatted to a friend in the aisle ahead of the bride’s arrival.Other guests included actresses Liv Tyler and Demi Moore, Kiss Kiss singer Holly Valance, former footballer Jamie Redknapp, Delevingne sisters Cara and Poppy, broadcaster Richard Bacon and reality TV star Ollie Proudlock.The Duchess of Cambridge’s sister Pippa was in the front row of the nave with her husband James Matthews and brother James Middleton. 7:17AMTimings for the royal wedding “When I did his leaver’s interview, I said: ‘Are you going to university?’, and he said: ‘No, he wanted to get on with life and go into hospitality’.”I said: ‘That’s a tough industry’, but he went and became a barman at the Admiral Codrington in Chelsea – he rolled his sleeves up and he’s got on really well.

Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank have left Windsor Castle following their wedding.The couple travelled in a silver Aston Martin driven by Mr Brooksbank. The pair, who attend St George’s School at Windsor Castle, said they both enjoyed the experience of singing in St George’s Chapel when Harry and Meghan married in May.Alexios said about the earlier wedding: “There was just this warm buzz going around the chapel – it just felt amazing and I feel this one is going to be as good as well.”Leo added: “It was a bit nerve-racking at the start but then when we got in I felt fine, it felt like a normal service, with added bits.”The choristers remained tight lipped about the music they will be singing. They were due to take part in a rehearsal this morning as preparations are finalised for Friday’s service.Later today, Eugenie and Jack are expected to take part in their final run through before the big day.Asked what they were looking forward to on Friday, Alexios replied: “There’s going to be so many famous people there, I’m really excited to see Eugenie’s dress as well.”Choristers say second wedding will be ‘just as good’ The couple are inviting 1,200 members of the public into the grounds of Windsor Castle for their October wedding, following in the footsteps of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.Announcing details of the wedding, a spokesman for Buckingham Palace said the couple would be inviting members of the public to share their day.”The couple are delighted to announce an opportunity for 1,200 people from across the United Kingdom to be invited into the grounds of Windsor Castle to share the experience of their special day,” a spokesman said.”The attendees will view the arrival of the congregation and members of the Royal Family, listen to a live broadcast of the marriage service and watch as the bride and groom depart St George’s Chapel at the end of the ceremony.”Myrna Whiteson, the president of the Teenage Cancer Trust, will be among the attendees with her husband, Dr Adrian Whiteson. She told The Telegraph the Princess had become involved in the charity from an early age through her mother, the Duchess of York.”The Duchess of York officially opened our first specialist cancer unit in 1990 and has attended almost all of our 28 subsequent new unit openings across the UK, with Princess Eugenie and her sister Princess Beatrice accompanying her on numerous occasions.”Following the ceremony, the newlyweds will undertake a carriage procession through the town of Windsor, where members of the public will be able to get a glimpse of the couple. 1:00PMA view from inside St George’s Chapel  Many of those gathered spoke of their utter shock at receiving a letter inviting them to be a part of the wedding day.One grandmother couldn’t believe her luck after her 12-year-old granddaughter won tickets to attention the prestigious event. After seeing a post on Instagram 12-year-old Poppy Russer decided to take a chance entering a ballot to win a ticket to royal wedding for her grandmother Elizabeth Hayball. “I couldn’t believe it at first and it was such a surprise and the most lovely gesture, said the 67-year-old.”I’ve always had a love of the royals but have never been to a wedding. I saw the Queen when I was five, but that’s the closest I ever got.” With this in mind Poppy knew she wanted to get her grandmother a golden ticket. “When I saw the competition I wanted my gran to be there with me. I’m really excited to see the Princess and her dress.”I didn’t think I’d win, but I was really happy and mum was shocked too.” Many in the crowd waved flags and cheered as familiar faces walked by, but their loudest roars of appreciation were saved for the men who were forced to run up Chapel Hill after guests hats flew away towards the onlooking crowd.The public was thrilled to see the arrival of Robbie Williams, with one group of friends laughing “We love Robbie but Ayda is such a superstar on X-Factor”.The guests strolled past in waves as their buses arrived at the castle. Famous faces included Cara Delevingne, Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss.Richard Bacon, who only months ago was fighting a life-threatening illness, was in high spirits as he arrived at Windsor, waving enthusiastically at the crowd as he appeared to film the occasion on his mobile phone. Ticket holders were also delighted to see Pippa Middleton who chose an emerald green dress which showed off her blossoming baby bump, many of the crowd voicing how radient she looked.The public waited eagerly to catch a glimpse of newlyweds Prince Harry and Meghan, who chose a navy blue dress.  12:05PMThe royal couple take a horse-drawn cart around Windsor Princess Charlotte stumbles up the steps Princess Eugenie’s wedding on Friday could end up looking fairly different to that of her cousin Prince Harry, it seems.The Queen’s 28-year-old granddaughter is set to marry 31-year-old wine merchant Jack Brooksbank on Friday at Windsor Castle, and everything from the guest size to the television audience right through to the weather is expected to differ from Prince Harry’s wedding to Meghan Markle in May.But the two weddings will have one thing (or, rather, one person) in common: both Harry and Eugenie have been using the same nutritionist to help get them into shape before their big day. Richard Bacon, a guest who is appearing on ITV in the lead-up to the wedding, said he had been invited after the Princess got in touch to support his wife while he was in a coma over the summer. Saying he knows her from being “incredibly social” and living near to the directors of Hauser and Wirth, where Princess Eugenie works, adding: “I first met her at about 3am in Miami,” he said.  As she walked down the aisle, the newest member of the Royal family mouthed to his bride that she looked ‘perfect’.After a traditional ceremony, during which the maid of honour Princess Beatrice delivered a reading from The Great Gatsby, the couple kissed on the steps to cheers from well-wishers. Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, watched on having arrived with the Queen amid speculation he might not attend. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex returned to Windsor Castle – the venue for their royal wedding in May.  Dr Anthony Wallersteiner The royal couple are exchanging vows at the front of the chapel.Eugenie’s wedding ring was made from a piece of Welsh gold given by the Queen.  Your wedding day should really be the one day of your life which is entirely about you and your beloved.But for the crowds lining the streets of Windsor this morning to watch Princess Eugenie marry Jack Brooksbank at St George’s Chapel, today is all about one person, the bride’s mother. It’s Fergie they’re all here to see. “In America people don’t really distinguish a lot of the more fringe members of the royal family, but everyone knows Fergie,” said Katie Goldberg, a New Yorker studying in London who got here at 7am in the hope of catching a glimpse of Sarah, Duchess of York. “I think Fergie is just brilliant,” said Elspeth Edwards, thrilled to have got a much better spot to watch all the action than she did at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s wedding in May. “It’s a lot quieter this time, but that’s quite nice really. We’ll get to see more. I’m so pleased Fergie will have a big part to play today. Pixie Geldof is leading the way in a fuchsia cape dress but we’ve also noted Emma Joy Kitchener, wife of Julian Fellowes in a hot pink coat dress. Here it is in full: It was soon after she and Jack had first met that Princess Eugenie read The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. One particular passage in which Jay Gatsby is described reminded her immediately of Jack.She decided that she wanted eventually to let Jack know how much those words had brought him to mind. That is why they have had a special place (as the second reading) in today’s wedding service.The words that particularly reminded her of Jack concern Gatsby’s smile. As we heard from the reading: “It was one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it……. It concentrated on you with an irresistible prejudice in your favour.”Well, a few years have passed, and Eugenie and Jack come here today to smile on each other, and to offer each other something like “eternal reassurance” and the promise of an “irresistible prejudice” in each other’s favour.In doing so, they understand that marriage is something far more profound than any kind of contract, as we usually understand it. There are no conditions here; no limits.They offer each other an unqualified promise to be there for each other come what may. It is the unqualified nature of the promise that generates a feeling of security; the gift of “eternal reassurance”.Of course we know that the very best of desires and intentions can be frustrated, and that marriages, even between the kindest and most careful people, can founder because of pressures unforeseen. The miracle however is that, in generation after generation, so many of us go on hoping that the keeping of the promise will be possible. It is as if we know that it is in the exchange of self-forgetful love that we human beings understand, you might say, just what we were made for.It is with that hope in their hearts that these two people have come here today, and have made their unqualified promises in the face of this congregation”; their families and friends and neighbours. In doing so, they have of course revealed the seriousness of their intent, but also something more.They have acknowledged their need of your support and your encouragement; they want you to believe in them. By being here today, you have given them a kind of “reassurance” for which, I know, they will be genuinely grateful.And if they have come here “in the face of this congregation”, they have come here, far more significantly, “in the sight of God”.They recognise that there is much more to life than meets the outward eye alone. As Christians, they believe that that ‘mysteriously ‘more” has been revealed to us in and through the life of Jesus Christ.In him has been seen the God whose nature is love, and through him has been heard an unqualified and eternally reassuring promise to each and every one of us that, through all the vicissitudes of life, we are loved.It is in the presence of the God of love shown to us in Jesus Christ that Eugenie and Jack have made their vows, confident that even our fragile human loving can be a merciful ingredient in a loving God’s providential operation in an often all-too troubled world. Debbie Skelton-Bethell, 52, from Shropshire, said: “It would have been nice to have screens outside of the castle, there’s supposed to be speakers but I don’t think they’ll reach out here.”Ms Skelton-Bethell arrived at 8.30am this morning to catch a glimpse of the wedding procession.She added: “I’m most excited to see the bride in her dress!” The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have returned to their wedding venue.The couple, who married in Windsor in May, did not walk through the crowd and were ushered straight into Windsor Castle.  This gallery will be updated during the day, featuring the best photographs of the royal wedding:  Hollywood actress Demi Moore has arrived wearing a burgundy dress and matching fascinator.She was preceded by supermodel Naomi Campbell.

When the Duke and Duchess of Sussex got married in Windsor in May, the hotels rooms and B&Bs of the town were booked up months ahead at a premium, as homeowners cashed in on their castle views to advertise rooms for thousands of pounds.Anyone who missed out on seeing the Royal Family in all its glory might well have cashed in today, because at the beginning of the week, there were still plenty of room at the inn for the wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank.Hotels in Windsor still have rooms available for the night of the wedding, with several appearing to have dropped their prices in the days leading up to the ceremony to entice tourists to stay overnight.AirBnB has rooms from £40, while the Harte and Garter, the pub hotel directly in front of the castle which was overrun by international media in May, still has rooms at £79 for Friday and Saturday, cheaper than any other night it offers until March 2019.On Thursday, TripAdvisor was advertising 49 available properties in Windsor and its surrounding areas, with prices from just £70 and availability from the Travelodge to the Sir Christopher Wren Hotel and Spa, which has slashed its price from £200-a-night to £162. She told host Eamonn Holmes: “I’m patron of their appeal and I had an operation when I was 12 on my back, and you’ll see on Friday, but it’s a lovely way to honour the people who looked after me and a way of standing up for young people who also go through this.”I think you can change the way beauty is, and you can show people your scars and I think it’s really special to stand up for that.”So that’s one really important one.”But separate to that, other organisations that are there, it’s just very important that they get a chance to be honoured for the work that they do constantly, so it’s lovely that I can share this special day with them.”The princess is also patron of the European School of Osteopathy, a world-renowned provider of undergraduate and postgraduate level osteopathic education. 6:33PMPhilip took ‘big step’ towards reconciliation with Fergie Ellie Goulding, left, arrives for the wedding Gabriela Peacock The Duke of York said his daughter’s wedding will have more guests than that of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, saying Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank have “so many friends”, writes Hannah Furness.”It will not be the same as the previous one that was held in May,” he said of the wedding. “It’s not a public wedding, this is meant to be a family wedding.”There will be a few more people than most people have. “There are a few more than Harry had but that’s just the nature of Eugenie and Jack: they’ve got so many friends and they need a church of that size to fit them all in.”He told ITV he had not prepared his father-of-the-bride speech, saying: “I don’t write speeches, why should I write this one?” Logistics for the day also appear to be drastically simpler than on May 19, when visitors hoping to catch a glimpse of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were advised to travel first thing in the morning, book special car parks outside the town centre and be warned that they may not even be able to enter the main streets due to the sheer numbers of tourists.This time, the council has simply warned tourists to be mindful that the usual Windsor car parks may be very busy.Where on May 19, Great Western Railway and South Western Railway laid on extra trains and a more frequent service to Windsor stations, October 12 will see them operate a “normal Friday service”.

Order of Service (Text) 8:58AMRoyal fans travel from Canada and the US for the big day The bride, Princess Eugenie, arrives Crowds gathered in Windsor for the royal wedding Ms Davy and the Prince originally met in Cape Town, South Africa, while he was on his gap year and he was reported to have once described Zimbabwean-born lawyer-turned-designer as “the one”.However Ms Davy did not enjoy the bright spotlight that came with being in a relationship with the then third-in-line to the throne and they eventually called it a day.Ms Davy now divides her time between West London and Zimbabwe, where she runs her own luxury jewellery line, Aya.She recently posted online telling Zimbabweans to “rise up” after the resignation of Robert Mugabe earlier this year.Ms Davy is thought to be single again having split up with her boyfriend of two years, the jeweller Charles Goode. Bridesmaids and pageboys Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank exchange rings Elspeth is a big Eugenie fan “She doesn’t steal the limelight like some, she’s very low key, and she seems genuinely happy with Jack.” Like so many fans in Windsor this morning she’s also a huge Fergie supporter. “She’s brilliant I’m so glad she’ll have a big part to play today.” pic.twitter.com/XYse3b6nWT— Eleanor Steafel (@eleanorsteafel) October 12, 2018 St George's Chapel The Duke of Edinburgh “took quite a big step” towards reconciliation with Sarah, Duchess of York, at Friday’s royal wedding, according to a body language expert.Judi James, an expert in social behaviour, believes that Philip was warm towards his former daughter-in-law, approaching her with a smile.The Queen’s husband is thought to have a frosty relationship with “Fergie”, who divorced the Duke of York in 1996.Ms James said: “You could tell the tension as soon as the duchess arrived in the church. As soon as she walked in she pulled her arms into her side and put her head down.”Ms James believes the duchess’s daughter, Princess Beatrice, may have tried to distract her mother from Philip’s arrival at St George’s Chapel for the wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank.She said that Beatrice “made very strong eye contact with her mother and kept her chatting as Philip arrived, almost as if to say ‘don’t look round now”‘. The groom Jack Brooksbank arrived in a Rolls Royce for his wedding day. Wisely deciding not to wear a hat, he chatted at the bottom of the steps where he will kiss his bride later today before walking up to the castle. He waved at well-wishers behind him. 10:19AMMore guests at second royal wedding because couple have ‘so many friends’, says Prince Andrew Just a couple of seats down from Carr was Livin’ la Vida Loca singer Ricky Martin, sitting next to his partner Jwan Yosef.On the other side of the aisle, pop star Ellie Goulding and her fiance Caspar Jopling sat next to one another.The Burn singer could be seen glancing around the growing congregation and chatting to Jopling before the service started.A guest rushed up to Goulding at one point and kissed her on both cheeks before moving off to take her own seat. The scene at St George’s Chapel was set once more for a showstopping royal wedding but replacing the Duke and Duchess of Sussex at the altar were Princess Eugenie and her groom.It was the turn of the Queen’s granddaughter and drinks executive Jack Brooksbank to take centre stage at Windsor Castle, 146 days after the blockbuster nuptials of Harry and Meghan on a scorching hot May day.Apart from the cooler weather, October 12 looked like a re-enactment of May 19, with perhaps a few more jackets, as guests milled around the Gothic chapel and greeted one another with kisses on both cheeks as they arrived.Women dressed to the nines and men in morning suits wandered the aisle and a din of chatter filled the chapel, making it feel more like a society soiree or VIP enclosure at a race meeting than a wedding service in a house of God.With a star-studded guest list of 800 in the congregation, around 200 more than the number at Harry and Meghan’s wedding, the seating was laid out differently, perhaps to accommodate the bigger crowd.Chairs were lined out facing into the aisle, with Kate Moss taking her seat on the front row, a familiar place for Moss who is in demand on “frows” at fashion week every season.

And what does her “elite” nutritional actually look like?Who is she?Peacock says she has always been interested in health and nutrition, but it was her years in modelling that taught her the value of a balanced and nutritious diet. 11:59AMThe newlyweds kiss on the steps as Royal family gains its newest member Robbie Williams arrives as his mother's hat is blown from her head The Duchess later visited a new heritage centre named in honour of her husband, the Prince of Wales, where she watched a display of Highland dancing by 24-year-old Rachael Walker from Fettercairn, Aberdeenshire.The Duke of Rothesay Highland Games Pavilion is situated in the Princess Royal and Duke of Fife Memorial Park, where the world-famous Braemar Gathering is held every September and regularly attended by the Queen.The centre, which will open to the public next spring, tells the story of Scotland’s Highland Games and is the new headquarters of the Braemar Royal Highland Society, organisers of the Gathering.Camilla admired a map of the site dating from 1906 and met members of the society and staff of The Prince’s Foundation, a charity founded by Charles which was involved in the building’s construction.David Geddes, president of the Braemar Royal Highland Society, said: “When the building was unveiled to Her Majesty The Queen and The Duke of Rothesay during the Braemar Gathering, the Duchess was unable to attend due to prior commitments.”However, we are delighted she has been able to see the building for herself and we look forward to welcoming her back in future.”He added: “Our hope is that people will come and visit when they are on holiday, and because they’ve been here they’ll be inspired to go to Highland Games around Scotland.”Robert Lovie of The Prince’s Foundation said: “It was a pleasure to welcome The Duchess of Rothesay to Braemar for her to see first-hand the completed Duke of Rothesay Highland Games Pavilion.”She was enthusiastic about the building’s beauty, the value of its purpose, and its ability to fit seamlessly into the surroundings.” Princess Eugenie announced in an interview with British Vogue earlier this year that her older sister Princess Beatrice will play a central role, as Maid of Honour. The groom’s younger brother Thomas, 29, has been chosen as best man.Prince George and Princess Charlotte will step into the roles of pageboy and flower girl once again. The siblings already know the score – as well as performing those roles at the wedding of Prince Harry and Ms Markle earlier this year, they did so at the wedding of Pippa Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge’s younger sister, to James Matthews in May last year. James Blunt, who attended the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex earlier this year, is expected to be at Princess Eugenie’s wedding. His wife Sofia Wellesley is the daughter of Lord and Lady John Henry Wellesley and he is a regular at Royal occasions.Eddie Redmayne and his wife Hannah Bagshawe became friendly with Princess Eugenie while lived in New York, working for the fine art auction house Paddle8.Plus, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher have been seen dining and on holiday with Princess Beatrice over the years; if they want to attend a royal wedding they may have asked their friend to convince her sister to send an invitation their way. Broadcaster Richard Bacon and reality TV star Ollie Proudlock have also arrived, as have Holly and Sam Branson.Kate Moss has taken her seat on the front row of the seating plan which is designed to face into the aisle.Fashion queen Moss is wearing a delicate monochrome polka dot outfit.The model turned to the row behind where her partner Count Nikolai von Bismarck is seated. Jack Whitehall’s Instagram storyCredit:Jack Whitehall/Instagram After a number of meetings with the couple to finalise the design, the professional baker began working on the cake in July, creating detailed sugar flowers and foliage, from ivy and acorns to white flowers and maple leaves, which will decorate the five tiers of the cake.”With such a big cake, you need to start well in advance – especially with all the sugar work, so it was important to get going quite quickly,” she said.Ms Cabot added: “There are a lot of eggs involved and a lot of butter obviously just for the sheer amount of people who hope to have a piece of cake.”She went on to say: “It’s a lot of ingredients, it’s a huge scale, it’s a bit different for me. I’m used to baking on a much smaller scale – it’s a challenge.” The tiara is made of brilliant and rose cut diamonds pavé set in platinum, with six emeralds on either side.

The tradition of carrying myrtle began after Queen Victoria was given a nosegay containing myrtle by Prince Albert’s grandmother during a visit to Gotha in Germany. In the same year, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert bought Osborne House as a family retreat, and a sprig from the posy was planted against the terrace walls, where it continues to thrive today. The myrtle was first carried by Queen Victoria’s eldest daughter, Princess Victoria, when she married in 1858.Bridal hair and make-upPrincess Eugenie’s hair was styled by Sonny-Jo MacFarlane, Hari’s, with make-up by Hannah Martin, Bobbi Brown.Maid of honourPrincess Beatrice is wearing an outfit by Ralph and Russo and a hat by Sarah Cant.  Bridesmaids’ dresses and page boys’ uniformsThese were designed by Amaia Arrieta of Amaia Kids.

Retrograde step to withdraw from CCJ – De la Bastide on

Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)RelatedBarbados will leave CCJ – Prime MinisterMay 21, 2018In “latest news”Barbados disappointed at level of support for CCJFebruary 28, 2018In “latest news”St Vincent jurist to head CCJMarch 12, 2018In “latest news” (Trinidad Guardian) Former president of the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) retired chief justice Michael de la Bastide says if Barbados withdraws from the appellate jurisdiction of the court it will “seriously undermine the standing of the court in the eyes of the people of the region.”Prime Minister Freundel StuartHe is hoping that the threat to withdraw would not become reality.Barbados was the first Caribbean country to adopt the CCJ as its final Court of Appeal and that decision has become an issue in the current campaign for the May 28 election in that country.Barbados’ Prime Minister Freundel Stuart has signalled “once the Democratic Labour Party is returned to office Barbados will be withdrawing from the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) as its final court of appeal.”Stuart had first raised the issue at the Caricom inter-sessional in March where he said that only four Caricom countries—Barbados, Guyana, Dominica and Belize—had made their CCJ their final court of appeal.He told a political meeting: “I think the attitude coming from Port-of-Spain leaves much to be desired in terms of how it’s treating Barbados and I am not going to have a situation where other countries in the Caribbean keep a safe, distance from that court while Barbados supports it.”The Barbadian leader has also expressed unhappiness with the rulings of the court saying they “were not reflecting positively on Barbados.”Speaking to Guardian Media on Monday, de la Bastide said if Barbados withdraws from the court it will be a “retrograde step,” for that country and one that will “seriously undermine the standing of the court” in the region.“One hopes it does not come to pass,” de la Bastide said.Stuart made it clear Barbados will not return to the Privy Council as its final court of appeal, but offered no alternative to the CCJ, prompting de la Bastide to ask “is he going to make the Barbados Court of Appeal the final court?”He hopes that if Stuart wins the election that the threat would not be carried out.Just why T&T had failed to join the CCJ has to do with politics and de la Bastide said the politicians will have to say why the court established by Caricom member states in 2001 and inaugurated in 2005 and which is based in Port- of- Spain had not been adopted by T&T as its final appellate court.Attorney General Faris Al-Rawi blames the Opposition UNC for this. He said “the matter of full accession to the CCJ is one that lies squarely within the realm of the UNC politics.”Legislation to make the CCJ the final appellate court requires a special majority—which is three-fifths of the Parliament voting in favour of the change from the Privy Council to the CCJ.Al-Rawi said, “The ability to take full matters to the CCJ is based upon constitutional majority which the UNC has blatantly said they would never support.”This, he said, was “borne out by the fact” that they “blatantly refused to do it when they were in government in the period 2010-2015.”As a result, he said, “there is nothing that the present government can do to compel the move toward the CCJ as the final court of appeal.”Al-Rawi conceded that “there may be merit in some of what he (Stuart) is saying in so far as it coincides with the current position of T&T.” read more

Simple combination of button presses can bypass the iOS 61 lock screen

first_imgNow, the tricky part: Hold down the power button for around three seconds, and before the “slide to turn off” option comes up, quickly hit the Emergency Call buttonThen quickly hit the home button to prevent the phone from powering downI tried this on an iPhone 4S with iOS 6.1 and just couldn’t get it to work. User reports around the web say that the timing is extremely tricky, and if you mess up, you have to begin the whole (albeit quick) process again. Along with the above video, a video from The Verge shows the precise timing required for the trick, but a few of us around Geek HQ couldn’t get it to work even though we were mimicking the videos’ timing.Something, however, is happening when I perform the trick — just not what the videos say should happen. Rather than access to the full phone app, my 4S stays powered on, but only displays a black screen with the status bar still visible at the top — something the phone doesn’t normally do. So, something is working, just not what is supposed to be.The trick doesn’t give you unfettered access to the whole phone either, but it does give you access to the phone app, and anything that can be accessed from that, which includes the phone’s photo library.Even though we couldn’t get the trick to work properly, it does say something about the person who found it, as the combination of steps are fairly random, and we’re wondering what the thought process behind finding them was like. If you’ve tried the bypass, let us know if it worked or not! Sure, the iOS passcode lock screen might make you feel a bit safer than not having it standing in the way of strangers’ access to your phone. However, if you find it a little annoying to type in a password after every time your screen powers down, you’re in luck: It’s currently so easy to bypass the lock screen that you might as well not bother using it.In iOS 6.1, a perpetrator simply needs to adhere to the follow few steps.Choose emergency call from the passcode lock screenHold the power button as if you’re powering down the phone, but then hit cancel to abortDial an emergency number like 911 (or 112 if you’re in the UK), then as quickly as you can, hit call (green button) then disconnect (red button)Go back to the lock screen by tapping the phone’s power button, then hitting the home button or power button againlast_img read more

Red Hot Nickel Ball takes on ballistic gelatin and sugar wins handily

first_imgWhat do you get when you mix extreme heat, a small nickel sphere, and a variety of objects? It turns out you get one of the best video series in all of YouTube, the Red Hot Nickel Ball (RHNB). The videos consist of a man we should all be envious of using a blowtorch to heat a ball of nickel until it’s red hot. He then drops it (carefully) onto whatever object or substance his audience wants. In the past he’s experimented on styrofoam, dry ice, and honey. The newest RHNB videos take on ballistic gelatin and sugar, with unexpected results.Nickel melts at 1455°C (2651°F) so the RHNB isn’t quite that toasty, but it’s close enough to be glowing hot. The high density of nickel also makes it better for melting through solid objects — a lighter metal might roll off too easily. Of course, nickel is also pretty cheap at just a few dollars per pound. Who knew you could have so much fun for so little cash?The first video pits the RHNB against ballistic gelatin. Ballistic gelatin isn’t a substance you encounter in the home, unlike most of the victims in RHNB videos. This substance is a scientific testing medium created to mimic the properties of pig muscle tissue. Why pigs? Well, they turn out to have very similar muscle tissue to humans. So, what you see in this video is essentially what would happen if the RHNB came after you. Oh, and the sound it makes! Turn those speakers on.So, the RHNB would make quick work of any fleshy object it came into contact with, and the pellet gun wouldn’t feel good either.Up next, we have a few different kinds of sugar, beginning with regular granulated. It turns out granulated sugar instantly melts and starts boiling as it throws out tiny globules of molten carbon. After retrieving the trusty RHNB, it’s on to confectioner’s sugar, which catches fire but contains the heat much better than its granulated counterpart. Brown sugar is a mix of the two — it liquefies and boils like granulated sugar, but generates the big flames of confectioner’s sugar.If you had plans, you might want to move some things around so you can consume everything on the RHNB channel. It’s all great.last_img read more

Yahoo replaces 1250 bug bounty discount code with 15000 reward

first_imgYahoo hit the headlines a couple of days ago when it was discovered the company’s only reward for security researchers submitting bugs was a $12.50 discount code. And with that code you can only get money off goods like t-shirts purchased through the Yahoo! Company Store.It’s not the greatest incentive for researchers to focus their efforts on discovering vulnerabilities in Yahoo’s services, especially when other companies, including Google and Microsoft, offer thousands of dollars.So Yahoo has decided to react, and in fact claims they were already hard at work upgrading their bug bounty program to better recognize and reward contributors.Ramses Martinez, the director of Yahoo Paranoids–Yahoo’s way of naming its security team, has blogged on the Yahoo Developer Network about the last three days since the original news hit. He states the discovery he was giving out t-shirts and discount codes was met with anger both externally and internally at Yahoo. The timing was also bad as they were planning an upgrade to the program anyway, it just isn’t ready yet.To calm things down, Martinez has decided to roll out the new program early in preview form. The discount codes are gone, replaced with a well-defined vulnerability rewards program that will award anywhere between $150 and $15,000 per bug. The cash reward depends on how serious the bug is that has been discovered.Yahoo will also be issuing formal recognition to individuals as they realize how important that can be for career progression and the reputation of certain security companies.last_img read more

There is absolutely no reason, therefore, why Central Council could not decide to play the hurling final after the football final, if it was concerned that there would be too few major hurling games in July or August.”The42 is on Instagram!

MovieBob Reviews MOANA

first_imgEver since they revived the Princess thing with Tangled, Disney Animation’s favorite new schtick has been post-modernism: Subverting small pieces of their well-worn, frequently-criticized formula as a way of excusing sticking to that same formula in other areas; i.e. Frozen upending a bunch of the gender and power tropes while keeping the big-song/merchandise-sidekick game strong, or Zootopia bringing back the anthropomorphic animal gimmick but then going “okay, but what if it’s also a political satire?”So at first it’s somewhat jarring that Moana seems like the most conventional feature they’ve put out since I can’t even remember when – to the extent that it often feels like a storyline that’s been Voltron’d together from the studio’s Greatest Hits catalogue: Stop me if you’ve heard this one, but our main character is a headstrong young woman of royal lineage from a highly tradition-bound society who dreams of following her heart to a different destiny, teams up with a wacky animal sidekick and a scene-stealing shape-shifter and embarks on a disaster-averting mission that turns into a journey of self-discovery that leads to across-the-board reconciliation.However, it also seems clear that this derivative setup is part of the point. Because Moana’s most prominent mission statement is very clearly rehabilitating the cinematic and pop-cultural presence of indigenous Polynesian cultures that Western storytellers (Disney itself most definitely included) have previously relegated to set-dressing and disempowered stereotypes; so perhaps the calculation here is that showing said culture to be compatible with the Disney Princess iconography factory is meant to be the engine of that rehabilitation.To wit: Moana is the Chieftan-to-be of an ancient Pacific Island tribe whose members are raised to fear venturing beyond their protective reef because of an epidemic of monsters and supernatural forces plaguing the wider ocean. But Moana – who secretly possesses a magic ability to communicate with the sea itself – believes that said oceanic chaos and environmental degradation will soon imperil her island as well, so she defies her stern but loving father and heads out on her own to fix things by enlisting the disgraced demigod Maui (Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as, effectively, a hybrid of Gaston and The Genie) to help restore a stolen relic whose theft is blamed for unleashing the forces of darkness.And if Moana’s main goal is indeed to gift Polynesian and indigenous peoples in general with a fresh cinematic hero narrative that not only celebrates a Disneyfied variation on their cultural mythology but also reinforces their often overlooked and/or deliberately suppressed contributions to the history of exploration and thus human civilization? Well, then on that front at least it’s an unqualified success. It’s a heroic, celebratory, affirming story about a people and culture who just simply never get those kind of stories told about them on this grand of scale, and that’s an important feat so decidedly accomplished that it really does render other criticisms decidedly secondary.But, still, apart from that it in the structural nitty-gritty details it does end up feeling a bit overly familiar and doesn’t quite take off and soar like the best of these things do: The songs are solid if not showstopping – The Rock gets the “funny song, ” and it turns out to be the best of the bunch (though it’s also pretty cool that several of them are partially or completely sung in Tokelauan language) – and while there’s novelty in most of the movie just being Moana and Maui working their various issues out while stuck on a sailboat together you can pretty-much work out the exact beats of where their arcs are going within the first few minutes.That said: I did find it interesting that we now seem to have moved ahead a step in the evolution of “Disney Princess” archetypes reimagined as empowerment figures, in as much as – like Frozen’s Queen Elsa – it’s already a foregone conclusion as the film opens that Moana is going to be the leader of her people and nobody makes an issue of that: The big schism is that her father is an isolationist leader and she’s an explorer who thinks her people need to break tradition and go global (topical!) – the fact that she’s a girl? Never comes up. Nobody in the movie acts like her gender is in any way tied to what she should or shouldn’t do, and the movie doesn’t make a big deal out of this (or congratulate itself for not doing so.) I also like that they ultimately try to do something genuinely different with the villain this time around. Plus… yeah, it’s not a “surprise” that the animation is genuinely gorgeous but still the sheer level of artistry and technique on display is astonishing – this is one of the best-looking movies of the year.I wasn’t blown away by Moana, but I liked it a lot. It’s a solid if largely unspectacular Disney entry, the kids are probably going to love it, and “memorable” or not you walk out with a good feeling. Recommended.last_img read more

Cognizant Takes Over Infosys as Second Largest Indian IT Firm TCS on

first_imgCognizant has replaced Infosys to become the second largest IT (information technology) services provider in India, according to global research and advisory firm, Gartner.The New Jersey-based IT major surpassed Infosys with worldwide revenue of $7.1 billion (₹398.63 crore). “Cognizant displaced Infosys to become the second-largest Indian IT services provider and Cognizant experienced the highest growth rate among the top five providers with an increase of 20.1 percent in 2012,” said Gartner Research Director Arup Roy.The combined worldwide revenue of the top five Indian service providers rose by over 13 percent to reach $34.5 billion in 2012 from $30.3 billion in 2011. Tata consultancy Services (TCS) tops the list with worldwide revenue of $10.9 billion in 2012, followed by Cognizant. Infosys was moved to the third position with $6.7 billion revenue. Wipro with $ 5.7 billion and HCL Technologies with $3.9 billion take up the fourth and fifth positions, respectively.TCS is ranked 16 globally, the same position it had in 2011. Cognizant, however, has moved from 28th to 23rd position in the global ranking.According to Gartner, the growth rate of India-based IT solution providers have been slowing down considerably particularly last year. But compared to the growth rate of IT services around the world, India-based IT services providers are doing comparatively well. This trend is seen even as the revenue base of top global service providers is comparatively much larger and diversified than Indian-based companies.In its rating, Gartner takes into consideration companies which have an Indian-based delivery, management and operating system.  That is why US-headquartered firms like Cognizant, iGate, Genpact and Syntel are also rated as Indian firms. With most of its employees based in India, Cognizant Technology Solutions (CTS) is also considered a prominent Indian IT firm.last_img read more

Mayor Annisul says sorry over Chikungunya comment

first_imgMayor Annisul Huq speaking at a press conference on Chigungunya at the DNCC HQ on Friday said the city corporation authorities will not be able to kill mosquitoes visiting from door to door. Photo: Sajid HossainAmid huge criticisms, Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) mayor Annisul Huq on Saturday apologised for his remarks over the responsibility of his city corporation in preventing Chikungunya, reports UNB.While speaking at a press briefing at Nagar Bhaban on Friday, Annisul Huq claimed that the DNCC is not responsible for the spread of Chikungunya and the city corporation authorities will not be able to kill mosquitoes visiting from door to door.“We didn’t want to hurt anyone. We just want to say the city corporation has no right to go inside people’s houses. We’re sorry if the remark hurts anyone,” said the mayor while addressing a Chikungunya awareness rally in front of Nagar Bhaban.During the rally, he said they will take all the necessary steps for controlling Chikungunya and mitigate the sufferings of people. “We will bring a revolutionary change in the mosquito control programme. We’ll also change our action methods.”The mayor also assured the city dwellers that the city corporation will be able to bring the situation under control as soon as possible.Responding to a question about the allegation of negligence of duty against those involved in mosquito killing work, Annisul said if they receive any allegation they will investigate it.The city corporation always takes action if it finds any negligence by workers in performing their duties, said the mayor adding a total 109 workers lost their jobs in the last two years for neglect of their duties which did not happen in the last 15 years.Arranged by the Ward No-19, the rally was joined by the local MP, civil society members, different social organisations and students.Read more:Killing mosquito visiting door to door not possible: Annisullast_img read more

Finally Chris Rock Is Rebooting Saw

first_img Not only was Jordan Peele’s Get Out a great movie but it was a great movie with messages that are actually being understood and absorbed by most viewers. Concepts like “The Sunken Place” and the creepy racism of rich white liberals are vital for our current political moment. And another message Hollywood has taken from Get Out? There’s money to be made by allowing a famous Black comedian to try his hand at the horror genre.At least, that’s the only way to explain this news story. The Saw franchise is being rebooted, courtesy of Chris Rock.The first Saw is an important little horror movie. It helped cement gritty and raw torture porn as the genre’s preferred style for the mid-2000s, and that creepy puppet is totally a new slasher movie icon. It was directed by James Wan, who just turned Aquaman into a movie worth a billion dollars, so it was made with craft. And personally I loved how crazy and elaborate its lore eventually got with so many characters and their soap opera drama relationships to each other. How many secret evil apprentices did the dude have after he died?However, like many cheap horror franchises, Saw bled out because of too much repetition. The original series ended with Saw 3D in 2010. The 2017 reboot Jigsaw was okay but no one seemed to care. So now it’s time to apparently let Chris Rock take a crack at it. Rock will executive produce the film and helped come up with the (hopefully more political) story. Lionsgate is comparing this to how Eddie Murphy reinvented the buddy cop genre. Sure! It worked for The First Purge.Chris Rock’s Saw releases Halloween 2020.

It’s the culmination of ten years of research he told the audience, in trying to integrate digital processing with analog radio signals. © 2012 Phys.org The presentation by Rattner made clear a major problem computer hardware makers are facing; as chips are made ever smaller, faster and less energy intensive, radio communications devices have lagged. Making them smaller causes them to work less well because they are analog based. They also tend to cause interference with other digital parts which has forced hardware makers to keep the different types of components separated. For Intel, this has been a problem that needed to be overcome as they made clear in their presentation that they believe the day will come when virtually every computer enabled device will need to talk wirelessly, with every other. What needed to happen, they said, was for radio to go all digital and that’s what they’ve done. Rosepoint is, a “Moore’s Law Radio” they say, a radio that can be made smaller without loss of signal strength.To make a digital radio, Intel engineers had to go back to the very basics of how radio technology works and reinvent new ways to build each part; digital phase modulators, power amps, frequency synthesizers, etc. The last, one, the synthesizer, is the part that deals with interference, canceling it on the fly and preventing it from interfering with Atom digital processors.None of the Intel speakers gave any indication as to when Rosepoint might begin showing up in actual products, but by showcasing the new technology, Intel has demonstrated their willingness to invest heavily in technology aimed mostly at handheld devices, an area where Intel has not been nearly as dominant as they have been in desktop and laptop computers.The company also gave a few details about other projects it’s working on, such as a way to allow laptops or ultrabooks to seem as always “on” as smartphones, a next generation wireless standard they call WiGig, and biometrics technology that hopefully will offer consumers a better way to protect themselves from those trying to gain access to their personal data, e.g. devices that read palm signatures rather than rely on passwords.center_img Rosepoint chip combines CPU with WiFi.
