Let’s see what the royals have been up to lately, shall we?
Firstly, some news from Harry; after the shooting in France (my sincere condolences to their loved ones) he took to the French Embassy to express his sympathy:
Prince Harry paid his respects to the victims of the terrorist attacks in Paris on Friday. The 30-year-old joined French ambassador Sylvie Bermann at the French Embassy in London as he signed a book of condolences for those killed in the attack.
In his message Prince Harry expressed his “warmest best wishes” to those affected by the attack in France where gunmen killed 12 people, most of them journalists, at satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.
Speaking after his visit, Sylvie Bermann said: “We greatly appreciate the support of the royal family and the presence of Prince Harry today”.
Two new pregnancies for the royals. First is Tatiana Santo Domingo, wife of Andrea Casiraghi.
The second one is Princess Madeleine of Sweden:
Sweden’s Princess Madeleine announces she is pregnant with her second child, ten months after giving birth to her daughter Leonore.
Princess Madeleine of Sweden, fourth in line to the throne, is expecting her second child, the royal court said on Friday.
The royal baby announcement has been made just ten months after Madeleine, 32, gave birth to daughter Leonore, with the new royal baby due in the summer of 2015.
‘We are very happy and look forward to welcoming a new member to our family,’ Princess Madeleine and her husband, British-American banker Christopher O’Neill, said in a statement.
On side eye worthy news, a documentary about the late Diana, Princess of Wales was not aired, claims have been made that it was due to Prince Charles.

For those not familiar with the sex scandal currently swirling around Prince Andrew: On Jan. 2, news broke that he was accused of having sex with a teenager between 1999 and 2002. The allegations, in a recent civil court filing in Florida, are part of a bizarre, complicated and long-running lawsuit involving his old friend, American billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, who was convicted in 2008 of soliciting prostitution of a minor.
