Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are rewriting royal etiquette rules

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are slowly but surely rewriting the etiquette rules as it pertains to the monarchy. According to British etiquette expert Grant Harrold, the engaged duo is really doing things their own way when it comes to their May 19 wedding, and some of the royal precedent is essentially being shunned. The fact that the wedding is on a Saturday is the first clue that these two are marching to the beat of their own drum. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle appear in official engagement photos taken at Frogmore House in Windsor on Dec. 21, 2017.

After 75 minutes with Norway’s prime minster

    As president, Donald Trump has become known for changing strongly held opinions in a heartbeat, often while meeting with an advisor or foreign official who persuades him of the merits of another point of view. Norway’s prime minister Erna Solberg appears to have excellent powers of persuasion. In a short press conference after meeting with Solberg on today (Jan. 10) for just over an hour, Trump said the US could consider reentering the Paris Climate Accord that he pulled out of last summer, and spoke wistfully about Norway’s hydroelectric capacity. So, we can conceivably go back in, Trump said about the Paris deal. The US can’t technically exit the deal until just after the next presidential election, but the president’s declaration last June left the US isolated it i...

Theresa May reveals new 25 year environment plan

The Prime Minister said double the number of children will visit the country’s national parks on school trips. Money will also be made available to for schools to plant new gardens and vegetable patches. Mrs May said: “More than one in 10 young people do not spend time in the countryside or in large urban green spaces, meaning they are denied the benefits which spending time outdoors in the natural environment brings. These young people are disproportionately from more deprived backgrounds and their effective exclusion from our countryside represents a social injustice I am determined to tackle. It...
