Tasmanian Mary with her Prince and the kiddies!

How they have grown.

 

When we think of cute royal children, we tend to think of British royals like Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis and little Archie. But across the seas in Denmark, there's another family who are equally adorable. Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince Frederik's children may be older, but that doesn't mean they are any less sweet. In fact, the Danish royal family of six are one of the closest and most relatable units we've seen.

Wow, they certainly have grown Celia.

Of course they've grown, good food, living in luxury. Not like the millions of poor starving in the world.

Luccu do you do much voluntary work on the streets or for the elderly each week?

Thats where you see the issues especially these days.

I used to in my younger days, both with a hospital and a charity.

I think most of us have suffered depression at one time or another, but it must be awful when you live in a goldfish bowl with people glaring at you and commenting on everything you do.

 

Prince William reveals how he was engulfed by a dark cloud of depression after his air ambulance dash to accident involving a boy close to George's age left him feeling 'like the whole world was dying'  Prince William's mental health crisis: Duke reveals he was engulfed by a dark cloud of

In a 38-minute podcast, entitled Prince William: Time To Walk, recorded for an Apple audio series, the Royal discusses mental trauma, memorable moments and celebrity encounters. In one remarkable display of candour, the Duke (pictured main) vividly describes how his torment after witnessing a devastating accident left him feeling as if 'the whole world was dying'. His mental health crisis came after he helped to save the life of a gravely injured boy only a few years older than his son, Prince George (pictured inset left), while working as a helicopter pilot for the air ambulance service (pictured inset centre). Overwhelmed by depressive feelings, he says it was as if 'something had changed' inside him. Weeks later his despair intensified. As he describes it, it was 'like someone had put a key in a lock and opened it without me giving permission to do that'. He adds: 'You just feel everyone's pain, everyone's suffering. And that's not me. I've never felt that before.' It is understood that William was referring to a car accident which left five-year-old Bobby Hughes (pictured right) brain damaged in 2017.

Perhaps Prince William experienced the very human feeling of empathy for others.

I would not be surprised Axel both his parents are/where sensitive souls.

For our Dutch friends.

Dutch former queen Beatrix has tested positive for the coronavirus, the royal house says.

Princess Beatrix, as she has been known since her abdication in 2013, got tested after coming down with “mild cold symptoms”, information service RVD said on Saturday.

“The princess is at home in isolation and adheres to the rules of life for people who have tested positive,” it said.

Beatrix, 83, was queen of the Netherlands for 33 years until abdicating in 2013, when her eldest son Willem-Alexander became king.

Last week, she visited the Caribbean island of Curacao, which is part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

At the time, she told reporters she had had her COVID-19 booster shot.

The Netherlands has been experiencing a record-breaking wave of COVID-19 cases that is threatening to overwhelm the country’s healthcare system.

The UK Daily Mail has such odd stories at times ...

Mike Wittstock, 75, said that although Charlene (both pictured in 2011), 43, is 'vulnerable' because she has had 'medical interventions', he is sure she will 'come back much stronger'       

Mike Wittstock, 75, said that although Charlene (both pictured in 2011), 43, is 'vulnerable' because she has had 'medical interventions', he is sure she will 'come back much stronger

Princess Charlene of Monaco's father has revealed his daughter is 'very vulnerable' as he spoke out about her health problems while she remains in a treatment facility.

Mike Wittstock, 75, said that although Charlene, 43, is 'vulnerable' because she has had 'so many medical interventions', he is sure that she will 'come back much stronger'.

Charlene, the wife of Prince Albert, remains in treatment for 'physical and mental exhaustion' following a 10-month absence in her native South Africa, where it was claimed she contracted a sinus infection.

Poor woman.

She has been through a lot she had an operation on her sinus and it seems to have gone wrong as she has not been able to swallow food and has lost a lot of weight.

Lovely photo.

Magical moment Royals met brave 'Bear', who walked on his prosthetic legs to raise £1.6m

Little Tony Hudgell (right) beamed as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (left) crouched down for several minutes to chat to him about his favourite Christmas carols (inset bottom) at Westminster Abbey on Wednesday evening. That it was a special moment for Tony, and a very proud one for his adoptive parents Mark and Paula, who looked on tearfully, was clear to anyone. Visible below his smart shorts were Tony's prosthetic limbs, which he wears after having both legs amputated when he was only three. He was six weeks old when, neglected by his birth parents and suffering from a catalogue of appalling, life-threatening injuries including multiple organ failure, fractures and sepsis, he was rushed to intensive care. Inspired by Captain Tom (inset top), Tony raised more than £1.6 million by walking 10km on his new legs in aid of the Evelina London Children's Hospital which cared for him.

 

 

This little boys story is heartbreaking but I wish more people would read it and appreciate what they have in life.

Wonderful little boy, good on him.

Princess Charlene 'hiding from public view' because she is 'disfigured' and 'scarred' from 'plastic surgery' in Dubai, royal expert claims - as she remains in treatment facility

Princess Charlene 'hiding from public view' because she is 'disfigured from plastic

Spanish royal expert Pilar Eyre is alleging Princess Charlene of Monaco, 44, was left scarred during a facelift in Dubai and has been hiding from public view ever since. Prince Albert revealed last month his wife had been admitted to a European treatment facility within days of her return to Monaco following a 10-month absence in her native South Africa. (left, Charlene's last public snap without a mask in October; right, reuniting with her family in Monaco in November while wearing face covering).

 

Mmmm, so many stories, wonder what the truth really is.

Her father has put the facts out RnR.

It is very sad.    Having surgery that went wrong, no wonder she has been hiding.

I guess now she has to get some one to fix it.

Wonder if the will take it to court?

Husband had the operation about 25 years ago it is not pleasant, I remember being in the room when the nurse came to take the bandages out, I say out as the cavity of this operation is huge and I was left mouth wide open seeing the extent of how much that space can fill up with!   I don't think I will ever forget that sight.

Edward VIII's 1936 abdication was 'the last thing' Wallis Simpson wanted but he had 'a ferocious, obsessive love for her and was never going to let her go', says royal author Anna PasternakEdward VIII's 1936 abdication was 'the last thing' Wallis Simpson wanted, says

British author Anna Pasternak told People for its Royals' special fall edition that Edward had 'a ferocious, obsessive love for Wallis and was never going to let her go'. The Duke's abdication, which occurred in December 1936, rocked the monarchy and the country to its core - but apparently the woman he did it all for was against him making such a decision. Edward wed Wallis (pictured left), who was thought unfit to be Queen, having been married twice, in Tours, France (pictured right), a year after he ceased to be King.

Princess Mary of Denmark has tested positive for coronavirus.

The Australian-born royal is isolating in a wing of the Amalienborg Palace in the heart of Copenhagen. The virus has not been detected among other members of the Danish royal family

Full ABC story.

Oh dear!  I wonder if any of the rest of the family have too?

Wise move IMO after the latest numbers ...

The first American princess of Monaco who fled the principality | Daily Mail Online

Just came across this which I have never heard of prior to this.

Princess Alice of Monaco, whose father came from a prominent German banking family, became a widow aged 22 following the death of her first husband Duke of Richelieu, before meeting Albert I in the early 1880s.

But she didn't walk down the aisle again until 1889 because her groom's father Prince Charles III did not approve of the match and would not permit them to marry. 

Following his father's passing, Albert ascended to the Monegasque thrown and just seven weeks later wed his bride, who along with two children, also brought an extensive collection of jewels and a substantial dowry of $6 million. 

Her forgotten story has been thrown into the spotlight again by Royal Central, following Princess Charlene's absence from Monaco, with the mother-of-two having spent 10-months in her native South Africa while she recovered from surgery after contracting a sinus infection.

She briefly rejoined her husband Prince Albert and their twins Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella, both seven, in early November - only to then leave Monaco to be admitted to a European treatment facility.
