 Her Royal smile-ness! The Queen, Prince William and Prince Charles welcome Boris, business leaders, presidential envoys and tech entrepreneurs including Bill Gates and John Kerry to Windsor Castle for a VERY lavish receptionQueen welcomes billionaire business leaders and tech entrepreneurs to Windsor Castle

The Queen put on a stylish display as she welcomed billionaire business leaders, presidential envoys and tech entrepreneurs to Windsor Castle for a lavish reception following a Government investment summit on Tuesday. Her Majesty, 95, who looked effortlessly chic in a matching turquoise co-ord with floral detail, completed her outfit with a pair of trusted patent black shoes and dangling pearl earrings. Among the guests invited to the Queen's Berkshire home after the day-long conference in London was Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, who could be seen leaning forward to shake the monarch's hand. The Prince of Wales and the Duke of Cambridge, who were also in attendance, were suited and booted as they met some of the leading figures in the castle's green drawing room before mingling more widely. 

Such an amazing woman ... she seems to keep up her ongoing schedule with a smile for all.

Yes RnR.

Just read in the news just now HM has been advised by doctors to rest, as she was going off to Northern Ireland to morrow!

Queen cancels trip to Northern Ireland on medical advice | Daily Mail Online

Queen, 95, spends night in hospital undergoing tests after cancelling visit to Northern Ireland but Palace says she is now 'in good spirits' after being dischargedQueen 'spent a night in hospital after cancelling Northern Irish trip'

The Queen spent Wednesday night in hospital for tests after dramatically cancelling an historic trip to Northern Ireland marking 100 years since the partition of the island. Royal doctors ordered Her Majesty, 95, to rest and advised her to miss a trip to the province, sparking speculation about the reason for the eleventh-hour cancellation. It is understood the trip to an unnamed hospital in London on Wednesday afternoon was expected to be for a short stay for some preliminary investigations, so was not announced by the Palace at the time, as well as in order to protect the Queen's medical privacy (inset, the King Edward VII Hospital in London, which the Queen normally always uses - though it is not confirmed if she spent the night there). Buckingham Palace said that the monarch stayed at the hospital overnight for the first time in eight years before she was discharged and returned to Windsor Castle at lunch today, where she is expected to recuperate for the rest of the week. Including her return from Balmoral, where she spent the summer, the Queen has travelled nearly 1,000 miles since the start of October. Last week, she was forced to start using a walking stick in public for the first time, a stark reminder of her advancing years. 

Hope she's OK.

Princess Leonor of Spain, who has returned to Spain for half-term, enjoyed a family night out to a concern on Thursday evening.  

The 15-year-old heir to the throne has been studying at UWC Atlantic College in Wales since September, but headed home for a week of down time with her loved ones during half term, with classes resuming on November 1.

Cutting a stylish figure in a fuschia pink wrap dress and Carolina Herrera heels, the young royal joined her parents, King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia as well as her younger sister Princess Sofia, 14, as they attended the traditional concert of the Princess of Asturias Award held at Principe Felipe auditory in Oviedo.

The event traditionally takes place on the eve of the Princess of Asturias Award, but was cancelled last year because of the coronavirus pandemic.

[Question?     are there many Spanish people living in Australia these days that have made this country their home?] 

 

Celia - According to the 2006 Aust. Census there are 123,000 Aus. who are of full or partial Spanish descent, most of whom reside in Sydney or Melbourne. 12,276 were born in Spain. In the early 60's I used to belong to the Spanish Club, here in Sydney. Saturday night was great, they are fun loving people and the Spanish food fantastic. 

 

Thank you for that Hola!

I remember in the fishing industry in Fremantle there were a few and a lot of Portuguese also.

Prince William appeared to put his grandmother's health scare behind him and carried on as normal this week as he was spotted outside the Windsor Suite at Heathrow airport along with his wife the Duchess of Cambridge and their three children.

William and  Kate, both 39, appeared to travel from the airport with Prince George, eight, Princess Charlotte, six, and Prince Louis, three, from  their Kensington Palace home in London.

Japan's Princess Mako marries commoner, loses royal status

Japan's Princess Mako married her commoner boyfriend Kei Komuro in a simple ceremony in Tokyo today, giving up her royal title in the process in a union that has sharply divided public opinion. The couple, who have been engaged for eight years, wed without traditional pomp or ceremony before holding a press conference during which they apologised for any distress their union has caused - though defended their decision and vowed to stand by one-another (left). They then bowed for the cameras (top right) before departing to start their new life, which is likely to be based in the US where Kei is working for a law firm. Mako also hit out at what she called 'false' press reports during her engagement which she said had caused her 'sadness and stress', after it was revealed she was suffering from PTSD. Bottom right, Mako at an official ceremony in 2019.

So much for Meghan's political influence! Duchess' controversial letter pleading for paid family leave fails to make an impact as Joe Biden drops the proposal from his $1.75Trillion plan

Meghan Markle's lobbying fails as Joe Biden drops paid leave from infrastructure bill

Joe Biden announced a new framework for his Build Back Better reconciliation bill on Thursday morning, revealing he's dropped paid leave for parents. Progressives had advocated for national paid leave for 12 weeks for new parents, however the President said earlier this month he would need to cut that down to four weeks as he struggled to gain support for his infrastructure plan. On Thursday, he announced that he has dropped paid leave for parents from the plan in a compromise to push the Build Back Better plan through a vote. His announcement comes days after Meghan, 40, sparked furious controversy when she penned a letter to Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer about paid leave. The Los Angeles-born Duchess published an extraordinary 1,030-word letter via supportive media outlets, saying paid parental leave should be a 'national right'. She said that her own family had struggled when she was younger despite her middle class upbringing in which she attended private schools.

'Obviously at that age, 6 or 7, you can't take them everywhere because they'll get bored if it's too official,' said Albert

The Duke of Cornwall carried a large folder and posed for photos with wife Camilla (left and right) as COP26 kicked off. He was among those who travelled by non-commercial plane from the G20 in Rome, MailOnline revealed. But a source insisted he would have 'only agreed to travel' after checking the aircraft was using sustainable fuel. The Prince of Wales, who will address leaders alongside Boris Johnson, is expected to stress the urgency of action - calling for the world to be on a 'war-like footing'.

Last month, the Queen was secretly taken to King Edward VII's Hospital in central London for an overnight stay. Royal aides said the trip was for 'preliminary investigations' with the exact reason still unknown.

Palace aides are drafting plans for the Duchess of Cornwall to take on a significantly greater role – and it is possible she could even be appointed to an elite group of senior Royals who can carry out duties on behalf of the Queen.

Camilla and Prince Charles are in Glasgow representing the crown today while Prince William will also join the royal charm offensive in Scotland.

The Duke of Cambridge tweeted: 'COP26 is a landmark moment for the future of our planet — I'm proud that our @EarthshotPrize Finalists will be joining me in Glasgow to show the world that there is reason to be optimistic'.

With leaders of more than 100 countries gathering in Glasgow for the talks, Ms Sturgeon urged campaigners to 'make life really uncomfortable for any government, any leader that is not doing enough'.

She added: 'We have all got to be pushed much harder much faster. 

'This summit should not feel comfortable for anybody in a position of leadership and responsibility, it should feel bloody uncomfortable because nobody yet is doing enough, that is the reality.' 

Ahead of the summit, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson warned that failure in Glasgow could mean that the Paris agreement from 2015 - in which leaders promised to work towards keeping global temperature rises to 1.5 degrees - would 'crumple'.

Mr Johnson said: 'If Glasgow fails, then the whole thing fails.

'The Paris Agreement will have crumpled at the first reckoning.'

Yesterday Prince Charles used his COP26 address to demand a 'military-style campaign' to mobilise trillions of dollars of private sector cash to 'save our precious planet'.

The Duke of Cornwall said the pandemic had taught the world 'timelines can be sped up dramatically' when everyone 'agrees on the urgency and the direction'.

The future king said top CEOs and businesses he had spoken to confirmed they were ready to do their part to protect the globe from climate change.

Prince Charles said the strength of the 'global private sector' was greater than governments and represented the only 'real prospect' of fundamental change.  

He said: 'So ladies and gentlemen, my plea today is for countries to come together to create the environment that enables every sector of industry to take the action required.

'We know this will take trillions, not billions of dollars. We also know that countries, many which are burdened by heavy levels of debt, simply cannot afford to go green.

'Here we need a vast, military style campaign to marshal the strength of the global private sector.

'With trillions at its disposal, far beyond global GDP and with the greatest respects beyond even the government's of the world's leaders it offers the only real prospect of achieving a fundamental economic transition.

UN chief accuses countries of treating nature 'like a toilet' and warns mining for fossil fuels is like 'digging our own graves' 

The UN secretary-general accused countries of 'treating nature like a toilet' today as he warned of a looming 'climate catastrophe'.

Antonio Guterres insisted it is an 'illusion' to think there has been enough progress reducing carbon emissions, and mining for fossil fuels is like 'digging our own graves'. 

The startling comparison came in a speech opening the COP26 session for world leaders. 

Mr Guterres said the world's 'addiction to fossil fuels is pushing humanity to the brink'.

He told the opening plenary of the conference in Glasgow: 'We face a stark choice: either we stop it — or it stops us.

'It's time to say: enough. Enough of brutalising biodiversity. Enough of killing ourselves with carbon. Enough of treating nature like a toilet.

'Enough of burning and drilling and mining our way deeper. We are digging our own graves. '

'So how do we do it? First how do we get the private sector all pulling in the same direction?

'After nearly two years now of consultation, CEOs have told me we need to bring together global industries to map out in very practical terms what it will take to make the transition.

'We know from the pandemic the private sector can speed up timelines dramatically when everyone agrees on the urgency and the direction.

'So each sector needs a clear strategy of getting innovations to mark it. Second, who pays and how?

'We need to align private investment behind these industry strategies to help finance the transition effort, which means building the confidence of investors so the financial risk is reduced.

'Investment is needed to transfer from coal to clean energy. If we can develop a pipeline of more sustainable and bankable projects at a sufficient scale it will attract sufficient investment.

'Third which switches do we flick to enable these objectives? 

'More than 300 of the world's leading CEOs and and investors have told me that along side the promises countries have made... they need clear market signals, agreed globally so they have the confidence to invest without the goalposts suddenly moving.

'This is the framework I've offered on a Terracarter roadmap created by my stable markets initiative with nearly 100 specific actions for acceleration.

'Together we're working to drive trillions of dollars into support transition across ten of the most emitting and polluting industries.

'They include energy, agriculture, transportation, health systems and fashion. The reality of today's global supply chains means industry transition will effect every country and every producer in the world.

'There is absolutely not doubt in my mind that the private sector is ready to play its part and to work with governments to find a way forward.' 

The Prince also said the world has been put on 'war footing' due to the impact of climate change and loss of biodiversity.

He continued: 'The pandemic has shown us just how devastating a global cross border threat can be.

'Climate change and biodiversity loss are no different. in fact they pose an even greater existential threat.'

He went on: 'To the extent we have to put ourselves on what might be called a war-like footing.

'Having the opportunity of consulting many of you myself over these past few months I know you all carry a heavy burden on your shoulders and you do not need me to tell you that the eyes and hopes of the world are upon you to act decisively because time has literally run out.'

The Duchess, who previously volunteered with the Scouts and was a Brownie growing up, appeared in good spirits during the outdoor engagement as she beamed and threw dirt as part of a 'wild flower bombing' bombing activity where they joined the children to throw soil packed with seeds onto a grassy bank.

The royal dressed down in a pair of black skinny jeans, and wrapped up against the chilly weather in a green quilted gilet, a new addition to the royal wardrobe. 

The mother-of-three finished the look with her trusty brown suede See By Chloé boots, which feature leather trim detailing on a round-toe, lace-up base.

Proving her eco credentials, Kate has often worn the boots, opting for them three times last year, including for a visit to a community garden in north London in January, and to the Scouts London headquarters in March.  

The royal's hair cascaded around her shoulder in looser tonged waves, with the emphasis on sleek and natural rather than voluminous and bouncy. 

Kate was named joint president of the Scouts last year. Kate is sharing the position - her first presidency of an organisation - with the Queen's cousin, the Duke of Kent, who has been president of the youth movement since 1975.
