Why the Queen kept quiet about Russian spy at the Palace: Anthony Blunt was the Windsors' chief art curator for decades but he was also one of the 'Cambridge Five' spy ring. Now, a compelling new book reveals the secret hold he had over the royals Why the Queen kept quiet about Russian spy at the Palace

The Queen knew all about Soviet spy Anthony Blunt. He had been a close friend of her grandmother, Queen Mary, had worked illustriously for MI5 during the war and, when it ended in 1945, accepted the position of Surveyor of the King's Pictures, effectively the royal art historian. And all the while he was a spy and a talent spotter for Soviet intelligence. MI5 definitely knew Blunt was a KGB agent but what is now clear is that so did the Royal Family. As early as 1948, his treachery became the subject of common or garden tea-time gossip in the Palace but nothing was done about it. He kept his position. One reason the royals turned a blind eye has to be that Blunt was party to certain secret things about them, having undertaken discreet business on their behalf. Pictured inset: The Queen Mother.

 

So the Royals chose to ignore the fact that Blunt was a KGB spy ... even retaining his services ... because he had something on them.  

Doesn't sound very edifying.

One wonders how many lost their lives because of Blunt's activities.

 

You do have a point there Axel!

Sending a message to Princess Charlene? Prince Albert of Monaco brings lookalike Hollywood star Sharon Stone as his date to a second event in a WEEK while his wife remains in South Africa

Prince Albert brings Sharon Stone as his date to a second event in a WEEK

Prince Albert, 60, and Hollywood actress Sharon Stone, 63, greeted each other with a friendly kiss on the cheek and chatted as they posted for photos outside Monte Carlo Casino. This morning Charlene, who shares six-year-old twins Gabriella and Jacques with Albert, shared an Instagram video promoting her anti-poaching charity. The mother-of-two is in South Africa while she continues to recover from a procedure to treat an ear, nose and throat infection she contracted while on a solo visit to the country earlier this year.

 

Princess Beatrice names her daughter Sienna Elizabeth in a touching tribute to the Queen - but breaks tradition by releasing an image of the baby's FOOTPRINTS rather than a photo 

Welcome to the world Sienna Elizabeth!

Posting on Instagram today, Princess Beatrice's husband Edo shared a snap of the print, writing: 'Our life together has just begun, and I can't wait to see all the amazing things that await us.' Beatrice, 33, the oldest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, gave birth to a baby girl weighing 6lbs 2oz at 11.42pm on Saturday 18 September at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, in London, Buckingham Palace announced.

 

Sienna is Queen Elizabeth's 12th great-grandchild. She is also the second grandchild for Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York, and the first cousin for baby August, Princess Eugenie's son who was born earlier this year.

Interesting names, perhaps the first is a tribute to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi's Italian background.

Sienna is a lovely name.

Princess Eugenie's baby will be the second grandchild for Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson and is 11th in line to the throne (pictured, the order of succession). The baby is the fourth great-grandchild of the Queen to be born this year, following the arrival of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's son August in February, Zara and Mike Tindall's son Lucas in March and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's daughter Lilibet in June
