Prince Harry And Meghan Markle's Official Engagement Photos Are Absolutely Stunning

Prince Harry, whose formal title is Prince Henry Charles Albert David of Wales - will marry famous actress Meghan Markle on May 19, as per the official announcement from Kensington Palace. The date is a Saturday, which is a bit unusual for British royalty since all the royal weddings take place on a weekday. But as this power couple showed several times, they aren't very keen on tradition. There have obviously been many speculations about the details surrounding the royal wedding, but one thing is for sure: Prince George and little Princess Charlotte will be playing part in the nuptials that will take place in the St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle in May.

Here's Why Prince William Can’t Be Prince Harry’s ‘Best Man’1m06s

Here's Why Prince William Can’t Be Prince Harry’s ‘Best Man’

As the next royal wedding in the Buckingham Palace is approaching its date, more and more details and royal rules come out on the surface. Many of them still unknown for most of the people around the world, however we are about to get a glimpse of the fine details surrounding the big event. According to the royal tradition, Prince William can not be Prince Harry’s best man. It is not because the royal family’s rules say so, but because according to British tradition, there is no such thing as a “best man”. Instead, the best man or groomsmen get the official title of "supporters". Although this title seems to sound like a downgrade, the supporter’s role is a significant one. The groom’s supporter completes all the tasks that a best man usually does. However, Prince William most likely will serve as a de facto "best man" at his brother Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding. He will also be responsible of planning Harry’s stag weekend, the British version of a bachelor party. As for the next royal member, Meghan, same as the Duchess of Cambridge, she can choose to bring on a maid of honor. Kate Middleton chose her sister, Pippa Middleton, who had the honor of playing that role. Now, all that remains is to await Meghan’s decision and see who she is going to choose to escort her on the way to the altar. As lots of news websites say, one thing is for sure; Prince George and little Princess Charlotte will be playing part in the nuptials that will take place in the St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle in May.

This Is Why You'll Never See Kate Middleton Take Off Her Coat42s

This Is Why You'll Never See Kate Middleton Take Off Her Coat

The gorgeous Duchess of Cambridge is well known for her distinct, polished, and truly regal fashion sense. Though it turns out, some of her looks may not be by choice. Apparently, there is an old-fashioned rule that states if the women of the royal family wear a coat in public, they may not take it off! According to Harper’s Bazaar, this is royal protocol. “When Kate turns up to an event wearing a coat (or a coat-dress, as she so often does), she won’t ever take it off while she's there. Even though she is most definitely wearing a chic dress underneath, taking off a coat is apparently an unladylike action and probably disrupts her outfit choice,” the magazine states. When she was traveling to Sweden and Norway, Kate showed off the chich she is so well known for with her buttoned-up array of coats. She wore a same black belted trench coat when she played hockey in Sweden, and a red and white houndstooth piece later on. Another thing that is on the royal protocol is nail polish, or rather specifically, no one of the royal ladies can be seen in public wearing a brightly-colored nail polish, as it is considered ungraceful. The same goes for wearing sheer pantyhose! Apparently, the Queen insists on the ladies being covered up! So it doesn’t matter if Kate becomes a sweaty mess underneath her coat. She certainly looks used to these guidelines, graceful as ever.

How George And Amal Clooney Fly With Their Six-Month-Old Twins

When George and Amal Clooney boarded a recent flight to London with their six-month-old twins, they came prepared. The couple handed out noise-cancelling headphones to everybody in first class, along with a note apologizing for any noise their children would make during the flight, People reported. Each pair brandished the logo of Casamigos, the tequila brand that George Clooney founded and recently sold. Quentin Tarantino wore the branded headphones during the flight, according to page six. However, “sources” on the flight told page six, the babies “didn’t make a peep”. Perhaps if they had, everybody in the cabin would have received a free shot of Casamigos. What are celebrity children but an opportunity for advertising? Celebrities or not, George Clooney and Amal Clooney were well-meaning parents handing out headphones to their fellow passengers to apologize for having their six-month-old twins, Ella and Alexander, on board. The considerate parents George, 56, and Amal, 39, surprised passengers on board with their fine gesture. Knowing that sometimes babies can get a little cranky, they gave all their fellow passengers headphones featuring the logo of the tequila brand Casamigos, co-founded by the fellow actor, using it as a fine way to advertise the product. Neat right? At this point, the Clooneys are pros at traveling with their children. A little less than a month after the twins were born, the family went on vacation to their house on Italy’s Lake Como.

This Pilot Flew The Fastest Flight From New York To London Since The Concorde54s

This Pilot Flew The Fastest Flight From New York To London Since The Concorde

January 15 was a day to break records and we have just the one. A flight that usually takes five hours and 45 minutes non stop from New York to London was flown in just five hours and 13 minutes! A Norwegian flight had the honors to be named the fastest flight since the Concorde. Captain Harold van Dam flew his Boeing 787 Dreamliner, reaching speeds of 776 miles per hours on the 3,458-mile flight. Surprisingly, the captain also admits that the plane could have gone even faster, if they didn’t encounter turbulence. “'The 787 Dreamliner is a pleasure to fly and it’s a great feeling to know that we have set a new record in this aircraft,” van Dam said in an interview with the Daily Mail. With the allotted time being six hours and 30 minutes to get from New York to London, passengers had more than an hour to spare when they reached their destination. Flights from the US to Europe are usually shorter during the winter, since the jet winds are more intense. This happens when the temperatures on the northern hemisphere are significantly different from those around the equator, causing strong winds to push across the Atlantic. In turn, this makes flights from Europe making them slower. The previous record for fastest subsonic flight from New York City to London was set by British Airways in January 2015, when it managed to complete the journey in five hours and 16 minutes.

Here’s What You Can And Can’t Steal From Your Hotel Room1m30s

Here’s What You Can And Can’t Steal From Your Hotel Room

Every vacation, sadly, comes to an end, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take a little something home with you to help you remember it. For most of us, this means picking up a tiny souvenir from the gift shop, a small piece of jewelry, or a work of art to hang on our walls. But for the more rebellious ones, that little keepsake can be downright criminal. From the tiny bottles of shampoo and conditioner to the comfy slippers and robes, hotels are filled to the brim with souvenirs just waiting for you to steal them. Amazingly, people will steal just about anything they can. Bathrobes, coat hangers, bed linen, mattress covers, towels, pillows, toilet-seat covers, pretty much everything there is in the hotel room. Sticky fingers? Ever wondered if those extra toiletries you stuffed in your suitcase could get you arrested for theft? You're not alone, people often wonder how much they are allowed to confiscate during their stay in a hotel room. But what we can we legitimately get away with and what's crossing the boundaries between holiday souvenir and plain theft of property? Hoteliers frequently don't mind if you take little things like toiletries. In fact, they're counting on it. Using them later could remind you of your stay and convince you to come back. So, if you really want to “steal” something, go for the little things that hotels are happy to share with you, like the soap you already used, or even a mug or a few coffee pods if you are feeling brave. Leave the sheets, artwork and electronics where they are because that is considered a crime, inform from the Metropolitan Police. Major hotels have a computer data base with a “no stay list” filled with previous patrons who have stolen one too many coffee mugs and are no longer welcome to book a stay. Actually, hotel chains are happy to share their customer intel with others. The extensive databases of individual hotels’ blacklists are being systematically centralized.

Americans Are Renouncing Their Citizenship In Record-Breaking Numbers1m08s

Americans Are Renouncing Their Citizenship In Record-Breaking Numbers

Americans are renouncing their citizenships in record breaking numbers. Since that start of the year more than 4,400 Americans have renounced their citizenship. In order to renounce their citizenship, a person must appear in an US embassy or consulate and sign a note in front of a diplomatic officer. Renunciation is irrevocable and once it has been relinquished, a person cannot re-obtain American citizenship. Renunciations have been on the increase ever since the government passed the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FACTA) in 2010. FACTA was passed in an effort to curb tax evasion, but has made it more difficult for Americans to open bank accounts abroad. The Act requires foreign financial institutions to report assets and financial information about U.S. citizens living and working abroad, to report their accounts or to withhold a 30% tax on them. Under this provision, a US citizen choosing to live abroad is obliged not only to pay American taxes but also the taxes in their selected country of residence. Instead, this measure has proven to be unproductive and forced people renunciate their citizenship for financial reasons. The Treasury Department reports state that 2011 was the first time that yearly renunciations surpassed the number of 1,000 citizens. This year the figures have more than quadrupled - 4,400.

Actress Angelina Jolie Just Took Her Kids On A Life-Changing Trip

If there is one thing the world can’t get enough of, it’s all the small details about the life of Angelina Jolie. The famous Hollywood actress has been known to do a lot more than just acting, with numerous humanitarian activities and a filmmaking career being on her resume. She has started her acting career as a child, playing alongside her father, actor Jon Voight, so she is not new to the world of glamour and paparazzi, but the famous actress doesn’t let the fame define her. She has been infamous for her many visits to refugee camps and warzones and for her desire to help out as many children in need as possible. In fact, Jolie is a mother of six children, three of which have been adopted from Cambodia, Vietnam and Ethiopia. They have been the apple of her eye ever since she laid eyes on them. She has been doting on them, trying to give them all the love and affection they could ever need, as well as showering them with the not so usual Hollywood gifts. One of those gifts was a visit to the Louvre. You might think that there is nothing special about it, but risking one’s security for the education and well-being of one’s children is a pretty mighty feat in Hollywood. Prior to their visit to the Louvre, the female part of the Jolie household went to a visit to the Zataari refugee camp in Jordan, and amazingly it wasn’t their first time. So what do you think? Is it too early to make her children face the bad things in this world, or is it absolutely remarkable that she treats them like adults and nurtures their humanitarian aspirations from such a young age? Tell us more about what you think in the comments down below.

Prince Harry And Meghan Markle's Wedding Date Conflicts With FA Cup1m08s

Prince Harry And Meghan Markle's Wedding Date Conflicts With FA Cup

Prince Harry will marry former actress Meghan Markle, the American 36-year-old who has transformed some embedded royal traditions after just over one year of dating Harry. Whether you have been hiding under that rock, in desperate denial that Harry isn’t actually now off the market, or if you just can’t get enough of our Royals and want to recap on what we know about the wedding so far, prepare for a Royal rundown! Harry and Meghan announced their engagement on Monday 27 November. A statement was released via the Clarence house on behalf of Prince Charles of Wales. Now, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will walk down the aisle on 19 May 2018, the Kensington Palace has announced. The pair will tie the knot at St George's Chapel located inside the grounds of Windsor Castle which is one of the Queen's main residences. The 15th century building has hosted many royal ceremonies, weddings and burials and is more intimate than Westminster Abbey, where Harry's older brother William married Kate Middleton in 2011. If the wedding date sounds familiar to you it is because it is the exact same date as the The Football Association Challenge Cup. It may not be a big deal that a soccer match is happening on the same day, except that Harry’s brother, Prince William, is actually the FA Cup president and is typically on hand to present the trophy. He attended this year's match and presented a trophy to the winner, Arsenal. Moreover, the date is yet another move away from royal tradition as May 19, 2018 is actually a Saturday. Typically, royal weddings take place during the week. Prince Charles married Princess Diana on a Wednesday, while Prince William married Kate Middleton on a Friday, and Queen Elizabeth married Prince Philip on a Thursday. So why the change? According to a Kensington aide, the couple wants the public to be able to join in on the wedding celebration by watching at home. Some Britons aren’t happy with the date as it means they will not be given a “bank holiday” or a day off from work for the event.

Meghan Markle Helped Prince Harry Kick A Life-Threatening Habit57s

Meghan Markle Helped Prince Harry Kick A Life-Threatening Habit

Meghan Markle helped Prince Harry kick a life-threatening habit. Reportedly, Meghan Markle has influenced her fiance to quit smoking. Prince Harry used to go through a pack of cigarettes daily, according to Business Insider. Quitting now is perfect timing because smoking inside their home at Kensington palace is banned. Royal household sites have been smoke-free since November 21, 2016. This includes Kensington, Buckingham, Windsor Palace, St James’s Palace and all other homes of the Royal family. Their wedding in May at St George’s chapel in Windsor castle could also be a smoke-free affair. Prince Harry, the once famous party boy seems to have completely changed his ways and habits now that he is engaged to American actress Meghan Markle. Of course, everyone expected Prince Harry to give up a few of his wild child habits, like partying in Vegas and hanging out in nightclubs, but his fiance has reportedly influenced her future husband to drop one of his worst habits - smoking! Just a few years ago, this party boy couldn’t go without a pack of cigarettes a day, but now he lives an exceptionally healthy lifestyle and kicked this nasty addiction for good! Harry isn’t the only royal affected by the smoking ban and in need of a cigarette intervention. His stepmother Camilla once had a bad habit of smoking ten cigarettes a day, which Prince Charles hated. She quit smoking after visiting an alternative health practitioner fifteen years ago and has since remained smoke-free. Luckily for Markle, this strong initiative will make her royal wedding smoke-free and there will be lots of fancy wedding cakes to compensate for the inconvenience.

American Airlines Flight 1498 from Mexico City was on its way to Miami around 11 a.m. local time on November 14, when a bird slammed into the nose of the plane. Bird strikes are not uncommon, however what made this instance unique was that the bird was left stuck to the plane for the rest of the flight, breaching the hull on the plane on impact. Birds can be a hazard for planes in flight, but this time it was the plane that posed a very serious hazard to a bird. The aircraft was able to land and taxi without any problems, and no injuries to passengers or crew were reported. Unfortunately, the bird did not survive. Local outlet ABC News 10 reported that an American Airlines employee called this particular bird strike is unusual. “It is true that we deal with bird strikes, that does happen," they said. “But never like this." After landing, animal services retrieved the bird from the plane, which was then taken in for repairs. The bird had punctured a hole in the nose cone on impact and its head got stuck inside. According to the FAA, there have been more than 160,000 bird strikes in the last 25 years, Miami's ABC 13 reported. Most of the time, they do not disrupt flights.

Check Out The Glorious Sight Of Flamingos On Lake Bogoria2m14s

Check Out The Glorious Sight Of Flamingos On Lake Bogoria

A stand, a colony, a regiment of pink flamboyance. What is it? A flock of flamingos in Lake Bogoria, Kenya. Such a sight! Pink, wading birds with their necks into the water. The most striking are the numbers in which they appear and their color. The word ‘flamingo’ comes from the Portuguese or Spanish language, from the word flamingo that literally means ‘flame-colored’. It is a feast for the eyes to see flamingos in such large numbers, however there is a reason for it - flamingos stay in large colonies on purpose – the large colonies are a precautionary measure against predators, and they are a favorable environment for breeding and growth of the young. So, not only beautiful, but they are also sociable birds. An interesting fact is that their color comes from their diet. Young flamingos hatch with greyish or light reddish feathers, but adults range from light pink to bright red depending on the plant plankton and beta-carotene obtained from their food supply. If you happen to be a bird lover and you enjoy bird-watching safaris, Lake Bogoria is the place to visit. It is an alkaline lake with natural steam jets, hot springs and geysers, having a natural reserve status since 1973. It is also widely known for the large flamingo colonies visiting the lake. They tend to arrive when the waters are low – around late August to early October, just before the short rains. When there, remember to take your camera, it is a breathtaking sight.

The Oldest Message In A Bottle Ever Discovered Washed Up On An Australian Beach1m14s

The Oldest Message In A Bottle Ever Discovered Washed Up On An Australian Beach

There is something so fascinating about messages in bottles thrown into the ocean. It’s as if they are timeless. A tiny piece of paper laying suspended in a glass bottle, floating with no aim whatsoever. It doesn’t have a direction nor is it bound by time. It is solely left on luck and destiny alone to reach someone, somewhere who might not even understand it. It’s like a hidden keyhole leading to a magical place. Historically speaking, messages in bottles aren’t that romantic. Sure, there were some that were written as a way to keep love everlasting, and even some that portrayed the anguish of living this life and not being with your soulmate. There is something so exciting about finding one and getting a glimpse of a past that we’ll never know but are privy to informations about it firsthand. But more often than not, those messages contain the dying words of a sailor lost at sea, farewells to loved ones and sometimes if we’re lucky enough, we might read instructions to finding a hidden treasure. Most of the messages were actually of scientific origin. That is the case with the letter found in Australia. Back in the day when there were no satellites and you only had a compass to guide you through the dark blue waters of the ocean, sailors threw bottles with messages that contained the name of the ship and the year it was thrown on. These bottles served to track the currents and where they lead. This last find is actually the oldest message ever recorded, checking out at 132 years of age. Imagine that!

Ninaki has presented herself as a “childhood best friend of Meghan”, saying how she is not shocked at all by the engagement. “It's like she has been planning this all her life,” she said. “She gets exactly what she wants and Harry has fallen for her play. She was always fascinated by the Royal Family. She wants to be Princess Diana 2.0. She will play her role ably, but my advice to him is to tread cautiously.” Meghan, however, remembers things differently. In her joint interview with prince Harry for BBC, she said: "We talk about it now. Because I'm from the states you don't grow up with the same understanding of the Royal family, I now know there's a global interest in them...I didn't know much about him [before]." If she did, in fact, plan her royal engagement wince childhood, then all the kudos to her for making it happen!

The Newest First Class Perk Is Not Having To See Another Human Being On Your Flight

The newest first class perk is not having to see another human being on your flight. Emirates is taking privacy to the extreme. Their new first class suites are designed for passengers who want to spend their flight not having to interact with another human being. The airline revealed their new suites, which are the first in the industry to be fully closed with sliding doors that extend to the cabin ceiling, at the Dubai Airshow over the weekend. The 40-square-foot suites are outfitted with a number of impressive technological features, but perhaps the most unique selling point is the privacy. An in-suite minibar allows passengers to serve themselves and there’s a service window through which they can receive food and drinks. Inside the suite there’s a 32-inch HD screen with in-flight entertainment and noise-cancelling headphones. The seat reclines completely flat and can be also put in a “zero gravity” position. Suites located in the middle aisle are fitted with “virtual windows” that stream live views from the outside of the plane. The 6-suite first class cabin will premiere next month on flights from Dubai to Brussels and Geneva. Isolation is the new luxury in travel, and Emirates is taking privacy to the extreme with new first class suites designed for passengers who want to spend their entire flight without having to interact with another human being.

This Is The Reason Why Hotels Use White Bed Sheets1m09s

This Is The Reason Why Hotels Use White Bed Sheets

There are several things people really look forward to when checking into a hotel: the breakfast in bed, the housekeeping and the pristine white bedding. But have you ever wondered why is it that ALL HOTELS use all white bed sheets? We decided to let you in on this well-kept secret of the hospitality industry. Since we all know how clumsy human being can be, it seems a little bit redundant to use bed sheets in the color that is the easiest to stain, right? White may be the easiest color to mess up, but there is a genius behind the idea. You wouldn’t want to sleep in a bed dressed in a color that easily hides stains, right? Besides, how can you know that the bedding is clean if stains can be easily camouflaged on it? White is the color of cleanliness and luxury; it shows an establishment’s standard of cleanliness. Just how the wealthy used to be able to wear all white because they could afford to keep their garments clean all the time, hotels use white linens to instill a sense of luxury in their guests. Besides making you feel like you are sleeping on a brand new bed, white has a very practical advantage as well. First and foremost, when hotel staff do the washing, they can throw all the used white fabrics in the same washer, without having to worry about the colors mixing. Not to mention that some stubborn stains can easily be bleached away. Now that it’s out, it makes much more sense, doesn’t it?

Here's How The Windy City Turns Its River Green For St. Patrick's Day

Nothing says Happy St. Patrick’s Day like people all dressed in green! The people of Chicago love it the most, for obvious reasons, so much so that they even dye their river in the familiar hue! But how exactly do they do it? Let’s start with a bit of history. The dying of the river water tradition started somewhere in 1962, although its origins go even further back. A former Mayor of Chicago, Mr. Richard J. Daley was on a mission to make the riverfront part of the city a pleasant site. The problem was it was a terrible eyesore, with sewage draining in the river. The solution was to pour green dye into the water, so that they might discover where exactly does the sewage is being dumped. The, in 1961, a childhood friend of mr. Daley and a member of the Chicago Journeymen Plumbers Local, Mr. Stephen Bailey had an idea - why not dye the entire thing green? Three months later Chicagoans had the privilege to witness their emerald-colored river, when the city poured 100 pounds of chemicals into it. The river remained green for the entire week! The practise was repeated annually by the Plumbers Local, with the only difference being the amount. Today, the magical recipe calls for 25 pound of dye for the river to remain green for one day. The dyeing process starts at 9 a.m. on St. Paddy’s Day, when six members of the famed Plumbers Union get on two boats and using flour sifters, they spread the dye into the river. Some 45 minutes later and the Chicago River is the epitome os the patron saint of Ireland.
