The real reason the little royal Prince George only wears shorts

    We've seen Prince George on a number of occasions now – at public engagements, in official photographs, and most recently during last week's tour of Canada – and there's one thing that royal watchers have noticed about the little royal: he only ever wears shorts.

A final decision on a second site, Roseacre Wood, has been delayed to allow Cuadrilla to give more evidence about the traffic impact.

    Paris deal will possibly be the fastest entry into force for any international agreement, certainly for an agreement as global as this As was being expected, the Paris Agreement on climate change reached the threshold necessary to bring it into legal existence a month later, with European Union, Canada and several other parties submitting their instruments of ratification on Wednesday. With the joining of the latest batch, so far, 73 countries have now ratified the agreement and together they account for 56.87 per cent of global greenhouse gases. This meets the double threshold — at least 55 countries together accounting for at least 55 per cent of global emissions — that was required for the agreement to enter into force. The entry into force will happen on the 30th day f...
