Meghan’s father reveled warning to Harry before marry to his daughter

    The father of the Duchess of Sussex has said he was not fazed by his daughter marrying into the monarchy. Thomas Markle told Good Morning Britain he had held phone calls with the Duke of Sussex, adding: He's great, he's an interesting guy. When asked how he felt about the former Suits star's nuptials, he said: My daughter has been a princess since the day she was born. He added: She made a good pick, didn't she. I absolutely wanted to walk my daughter down the aisle, said Mr Markle, who did not travel to Windsor for the wedding due to health reasons. I'm recovering from a heart operation but I'm doing much better, he told GMB. Mr Markle spoke of the moment the Duke of Sussex asked for permission to marry the then Ms Markle.

Melania critise Trump policies

    Melania Trump waded into a debate over children being separated from their families at the Mexico border, saying the United States should govern with heart. In a rare intervention the first lady's spokeswoman said she wanted Republicans and Democrats to work together to achieve successful immigration reform. Her comments were taken by some as an implicit criticism by Mrs Trump of her husband's recently introduced zero tolerance policy at the border.

More than 2,000 children have been removed from their parents over the last six weeks since Jeff Sessions, the US attorney general, introduced the new approach. Under the policy adults are b...

I basically told everyone: I’ve ...

True story behind the heartbreaking photograph

    In a heartbreaking photo, a two-year-old Honduran girl is seen crying in fear as her mother is searched and detained near the US-Mexico border in McAllen, Texas. The image comes following President Trump's decision to prosecute every adult discovered illegally entering the US in a new and tougher crack down on illegal immigration, announced by Jeff Sessions on April 6. Since the move, nearly 2,000 children have been separated from their parents and placed in makeshift detention centres while their cases are adjudicated. However, it is not clear whether the Trump administration is trying to reunite families. I took only a few photographs and was almost overcome with emotion myself. Then very quickly, they were in the van, and I stopped to take a few deep breaths. ...
