Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Feel Like They’ve Known Each Other a Long Time, Says Source

    Prince Harry and Suits star Meghan Markle have only been together since last summer, but the couple are already settled into a rhythm together. PEOPLE confirmed in October that Harry and Markle had been seeing each other for three months and since the start of the new year the pair have been, according to an insider, inseparable while using Harry’s cozy two-bedroom Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace as a home base. They are really just enjoying spending time together, a second source tells PEOPLE of the couple, who vacationed in Norway together in early January and were last photographed hand-in-hand in London on Feb. 1. Markle’s humanitarian work took her to India for a week in January. But with the actress not expected back on the Suits set until April, palace i...

Trump blasts retailer Nordstrom, raising new concern on business ties

    President Donald Trump blasted department store chain Nordstrom Inc on Wednesday for dropping his daughter Ivanka's clothing line, prompting critics to accuse him of misusing public office to benefit his family's sprawling business empire. After Trump's highly unusual move to use a White House platform to intervene in a commercial matter involving his daughter, Nordstrom reiterated that its action last week was based on declining sales of the Ivanka Trump products.

Real fight starts now: Jeremy Corbyn mocked for pathetic Brexit rallying cry

    Jeremy Corbyn mocked for pathetic Brexit rallying cry Jeremy Corbyn has been mercilessly mocked for saying the real fight starts now after MPs overwhelmingly voted to back Brexit. The Labour leader took to social media after the Commons vote, in which the majority of his party backed the Government, to say he would now begin work to make a success of Britian's departure from the EU. The futility of Mr Corbyn's so-called fight was summed up in a series of memes on social media. He has faced a number of resignations from his Shadow Cabinet from Labour MPs who refused to follow the party whip in voting with the Government to trigger Article 50, which begins the Brexit process. In total, 162 Labour MPs backed triggering Article 50 while 52 voted against and 13 did not vote. Ov...

Wife blames Putin for husband’s poisoning

    The wife of a Kremlin critic in hospital with major organ failure has told Sky News that those in charge of the Russian system are responsible for his suffering.

Yvegenia Kara-Murza said: I just think that it's the whole situation that the Russian government - the current Russian regime creates in the country. A committed democrat, a vociferous critic of the President Putin and the father of three c...

    In this Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001 file photo, fire and smoke billows from the north tower of New York's World Trade Center after terrorists crashed two hijacked airliners into the World Trade Center and brought down the twin. MIAMI  The man who says he was the mastermind of the Sept. 11 terrorist attack seeks to justify the plot as a natural reaction to U.S. foreign policy in a blistering letter sent to then President Barack Obama from the Guantanamo prison. Khalid Shaikh Mohammad, one of five Guantanamo prisoners facing trial by military commission for their alleged roles in the hijacking plot, also writes in the letter released Wednesday that it does not matter to him if he receives a life sentence or the death penalty from the tribunal.
