What Prince Harry thought when he first saw Meghan

    The future husband and wife's story is a fairy tale romance that is unlike any other. While the 33-year-old royal was among the world's most known bachelors, upon meeting Markle, he felt like needed to impress the stunning Suits actress. There's no denying that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are beyond smitten with each other. Harry said, when he walked into that room and saw Meghan for the first time, he knew he had to up his game, royal expert Katie Nicholl, author of Harry: Life, Loss, and Love, told ET exclusively about the prince's first impression of Meghan. There was this beautiful, glamorous actress, but I think it went far more than just a superficial initial connection. I was told really after those first couple of dates, he knew he had met someone very,...

Facebook boss finally apologises over data breach

    Facebook is changing the way it shares data with third-party applications, Mark Zuckerberg announced Wednesday in his first public statement since the Observer reported that the personal data of about 50 million Americans had been harvested and improperly shared with a political consultancy. The Facebook CEO broke his five-day silence on the scandal that has enveloped his company this week in a Facebook post acknowledging that the policies that allowed the misuse of data were a breach of trust between Facebook and the people who share their data with us and expect us to protect it. We have a responsibility to protect your data, and if we can’t then we don’t deserve to serve you, Zuckerberg wrote. He noted that the company has already changed some of the rules that e...

Trump’s early morning tweet: fired back at Joe Biden

    President Trump fired back at Joe Biden in an early morning tweet, saying the former vice president is trying to act like a tough guy. Crazy Joe Biden is trying to act like a tough guy. Actually, he is weak, both mentally and physically, and yet he threatens me, for the second time, with physical assault, the president said. He doesn't know me, but he would go down fast and hard, crying all the way, he added. Don't threaten people Joe! Biden reportedly said at an anti-sexual assault rally in Florida that he would have beat the hell out of Trump in high school over comments the president has made about women. A guy who ended up becoming our national leader said, I can grab a woman anywhere and she likes it, Biden said, according to ABC News. They asked me if I'd ...

EU firm to make British passports

    Swapping the EU’s burgundy passport for the old blue version has been hailed by Brexiteers as a symbol of Britain’s regained independence. But Franco-Dutch firm Gemalto has won the contract to manufacture the document, the Telegraph reported. The firm undercut rival bids by around £50 million, the newspaper said. Tory MP Sir Bill Cash, chairman of the Commons European Scrutiny Committee, branded such a move completely wrong and unnecessary. The tender to produce the passport was understood to have been put out across the EU under single market rules. Sir Bill said: I think it is incongruous to say the least. It is completely unnecessary and it is symbolically completely wrong. Whatever the conditions which led to the decision in terms of pricing, the fact is tha...

May Is Said to Tell Allies to Beware Russia: Expel Putin’s Spies

    The U.K. is sharing secret intelligence about the nerve agent attack on a former spy with key allies, in an effort to persuade them to expel Russian diplomats across Europe, people familiar with the matter said. Prime Minister Theresa May ordered 23 Russian operatives who she said were undeclared spies to leave Britain last week in retaliation for the attack on Sergei and Yulia Skripal in Salisbury, England. Now she wants other countries to follow Britain’s example, condemning Russia and taking action against Kremlin agents, according to the people, who asked not to be named discussing sensitive security matters. May stands outside The Mill pub in Salisbury on March 15. Whether or not May succeeds is being seen as a key test of her ability to influence the EU and d...
