Harry and William has a ‘forgotten’ step-sister – here’s all you need to know about her

The British Royal Family has always been of huge interest to a large portion of the world and in these days, with the death of the Queen, everyone is talking about what’s going on within the Royal family.

As of late, though, they’ve been in the spotlight for some sad reasons.

As many of you know, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle decided to leave the Royal Family in 2020. Then their Oprah Winfrey interview sent shockwaves through Buckingham Palace.

The revelations made the relationship between Harry and Meghan and the Royal Family unsustainable – but after the Queen’s tragic passing we maintain a small glimmer of hope that they will be able to sort things out.

Harry and William’s step-sister
A first try to rebuild bridges burned happened at Prince Philip’s funeral. Queen Elizabeth’s beloved husband passed away at the age of 99. When the Royal Family paid their last goodbyes to the prince, Harry was in attendance, having flown over from the U.S.

All told, about 30 family members were present, and that alone shows how big the Royal Family really is. Of course, there are plenty of family members who have been outside of the spotlight for the majority of their lives. One such character is the aforementioned Laura Lopes, step-sister of Prince William and Prince Harry.

She’s not someone who’s been seen in interviews, waving from the balcony of Buckingham Palace or posing with the Queen, but it turns out she’s actually been at some of the biggest events in recent years.

Not only that, but she’ll probably have the opportunity to become a Duchess as Charles takes the throne.

This is all you need to know about Laura Lopes!

Laura Lopes was born on January 1, 1978. Her mother is Camilla, and her father is Andrew Parker Bowles. So how did she end up within the Royal Family?

Laura Lopes – daughter of Camilla
Camilla married Andrew Parker Bowles, a British Army officer, in 1973. The couple then divorced in 1995 – 10 years later, Camilla married Charles.

Laura was 17 when her parents divorced. Speculation suggested that her father had many affairs during the marriage – some of them with Camilla’s close friends, according to author Penny Junor.

Camilla and Charles’ subsequent love story was equally as complicated, and to some people, not all that nice.

According to King Charles’ authorized biography, as quoted by Town & Country, their affair had already started by 1986. At that time, Charles was still married to Princes Diana, and she found out about it.

In 1989, Diana confronted Camilla over the affair, telling her to back off.

“I know what’s going on between you and Charles and I just want you to know that,” Camilla recalled Diana saying in a tape released by The Telegraph, as quoted by Town & Country.

“[Diana] said to me: ‘You’ve got everything you ever wanted. You’ve got all the men in the world falling in love with you and you’ve got two beautiful children, what more do you want?’”

“So I said, ‘I want my husband.’ And I said, ‘I’m sorry I’m in the way and it must be hell for both of you. But I do know what’s going on. Don’t treat me like an idiot,’” Camilla explained.

Laura Lopes’ feud with William
Camilla and Andrew divorced in 1995, and the following year, Charles and Diana divorced as well. The Princess’ tragic passing in 1997 sent shockwaves throughout the entire world, leaving Harry and William without their beloved mother.

As Harry and William grew up, their step-sister Laura Lopes were often around. She is four years older than William, and six years older than Harry.

They played together, though it seems that they weren’t best friends. According to royal reporter Katie Nicholl’s book Harry and William from 2010, William and Laura did NOT get along back in the day.

“William and Laura used to have terrible fights over who was to blame for their broken homes,” Nicholl wrote.

“William would blame Camilla for all the hurt she had caused his mother, which would send Laura into a rage. Laura was not having any of it. She would take a hard line and fire back at William, ‘Your father has ruined my life.’”

Laura might have grown up playing with her step-brothers, but she didn’t choose a royal path. She attended a Catholic girls boarding school in Dorset, later studying Art History and Marketing at Oxford Brookes University.

Founded her own art gallery
In the early 2000s, she was a motoring correspondent for the British society magazine Tatler. Laura later moved on to art and was the manager of The Space Gallery in London. Then, in 2005, she founded her own art gallery, Eleven, in the English capital.

Laura has a brother, Tom, as well, which makes him a step-brother to William and Harry. The pair have kept themselves out of the spotlight and haven’t really done interviews. In 2019, though, Tom decided to speak out on their low profile.

“My mother married into the Royal Family. She’s part of it,” he said. “We’re the common children. We’re just on the side.”

In 2006, Laura tied the knot with businessman Harry, who’s also been a model for Calvin Klein.

Laura Lopes – royal events
Laura wore a beautiful Anna Valentine dress for her wedding. The same designer actually designed the dress her mother wore to marry Charles the previous year.

Both William and Harry attended the wedding of Harry and Laura. Kate Middleton was present as well, though she sat separately from the two princes as she was “unofficial girlfriend” of William at the time.

In 2007, Laura and her husband Harry welcomed their first daughter, Eliza. Two years later, their twin boys Gus and Louis were born. They are the step-nieces of William, Kate Middleton, Harry, and Meghan Markle.

Marriages seem to be one of the rare occasions that Laura actually is seen in public alongside the Royal Family. She was very much involved in the wedding of William and Kate Middleton in 2011, as her youngest daughter Eliza was a flower girl. Laura and Harry were also in attendance at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding in May, 2018.

A senior royal insider claimed that Charles and his two sons had a meeting following the funeral of Prince Philip. Even so, according to royal expert Angela Levin, Charles won’t be taking Harry’s side at all.

Back then, Charles was planning to “ditch” Meghan and Harry from the Royal Family once he became king, the source said.

“Prince Charles has wanted for a very long time to cut the monarchy down to save costs and to make people be worth the money that they got from the taxpayer,” Levin said on TalkRADIO, as quoted by the Express.

“I imagine that might be when Harry and Meghan are ditched from being members of the Royal family.”

So how might this affect Laura? Well, she might become a Duchess for one.

Not only could Charles use the throne to ditch Harry and Meghan from the Royal Family, but he will also have the power and opportunity to bestow royal titles upon his step-children, according to the Express.

That means that Laura, in other words, could become a duchess or maybe a countess, during Charles’ reign.

We don’t know if this really will happen, or if Laura and her brother Tom even want it. At a glance, it looks like they are pretty happy with not being in the royal spotlight at all. As we all know, of course, such things can change quickly.

Camilla’s photographs
But even though we know what the Royal Family is all about, it certainly seems that Camilla is keen on keeping her children very close. In several interviews, she’s been seen sitting in front of pictures of Laura and Tom, a gesture that can’t be seen as anything else but love for her family.

In the photo above, Camilla keeps a special photo of her and Laura on her wedding day.

We don’t know what will happen in the future, but we certainly are excited about seeing more of Laura Lopes. If not through the Royal Family, then through her art.

Do you think she’d want a royal title when Charles is a king or not? Please, give us your opinion in the comment section!

The Man Who Invented The McNugget Is Using His Millions To Fight “Woke Companies”

Throughout the 1990s, McDonald’s shoppers had CEO Ed Rensi to thank for reinvigorating the hamburger brand. Not only did Rensi “invent” chicken McNuggets, but he also used his access to power in McDonald’s to fight for conservative causes.

Now, years after he stepped away from leadership at the fast-food company, Rensi plans to use the wealth he has accumulated over the years to fight “woke” businesses by funding conservative advocacy groups in an effort to form The Boardroom Initiative.

Seventy-eight-year-old Rensi’s mission with The Boardroom Initiative is to strip away progressive initiatives that have been major wins for working-class Americans, like higher pay and benefits. He also wants to stop businesses from enacting so-called “woke” policies that he claims imperil shareholder equity because they have to pay more money to staff the businesses.

Rensi’s group has joined forces with the already existing The Free Enterprise Project in order to fight liberals in the capitalist system of the American stock exchange. The group hopes to buy tons of shares in publicly-traded companies so they can force the companies to abandon “woke” policies that were enacted to empower the workers.

Under its conservative leadership, The Free Enterprise Project has sucked up some 2,000 shares of Bank of America, a publicly-traded corporation, so it can propose a motion during the shareholders’ next meeting – a proposal that could strip away Bank of America’s “woke” initiative to educate staff. The conservative motion would ask Bank of America shareholders to vote on a proposal to commit a civil rights audit so they can stop Bank of America executives from holding “equity” training for staff that is based on Critical Race Theory – CRT.

“Corporations have no business being on the right or the left because they represent everybody there, and their sole job is to build equity for their investors,” Rensi said.

Rensi does not consider himself political, but he hopes to use the political process to rid Bank of America and other corporations of civil rights programs that could promote more equity among the workforce.

“It is not the providence of board members or executives that take shareholder money profit and spend it on social matters,” said Rensi.

“Hopefully, the Boardroom Initiative is the beginning of a new era in corporate America in which extremes of ideological politics are set aside so that everyone can work on creating value for both customers and investors,” said Richard Morrison, a senior fellow at the libertarian Competitive Enterprise Institute, of the group’s efforts.

Unfortunately, people are now concerned that Rensi’s effort to sterilize Bank of America could put people’s retirement savings at risk. Because the group wants to promote a political agenda, people are worried that these major banks will be investing in politics rather than real assets that could help average Americans retire with some dignity.

“Every state employee should have full faith and confidence that their retirement funds are being invested for maximum growth and not being used to promote a political agenda,” said the American Legislative Exchange Council vice president of policy Lee Schalk.

Mom wants to show 13-month-old daughter with rare birthmark that she is beautiful

All of us are born uniquely special and irrefutably beautiful in our own way.One of the most breathtakingly fabulous things about being human is that no two of us are exactly the same, and as the years roll on we’re becoming far better as a species when it comes to accepting and celebrating our differences.

Mother Nicole Lucas Hallson is raising two beautiful kids, her son Asher and daughter Winry. But she’s also on a bigger mission, to prove the idea that we’re perfect due to our imperfections, and aims to reaffirm that her baby daughter, who was born with a rare birthmark, is beautiful just the way she is.

As per Good Morning America, little Winry Hall was born with an extremely rare birthmark known as congenital melanocytic nevi, or CMN.

As a result, Winry, at 13 months old, doesn’t look like the children around her – the rare birthmark that covers a fourth of her face.

Nicole, who works as a teacher, was really concerned and shocked when the nurses handed Winry over to her after the delivery in February 2021.

She had a pretty normal pregnancy and didn’t expect her daughter to have a skin condition.

”I was lucky to have a pretty average pregnancy! I had morning sickness from about weeks 8-14, but as soon as that let up I felt great until the tiredness kicked in the last month,” she writes on her blog.

According to Nicole, it was probably the doctors and nurses who first spotted the CMN. But nothing came out of their mouths besides cheering and congratulations for such a fast and smooth delivery.¨

They also assured Nicole that all of Winry’s vitals looked good.

After Nicole had nursed her newborn daughter for a while, she started to look at Winry. First, the confused mother thought the big mark on Winrys head was just a bruise.

“It was then quickly apparent to my husband and I that it was not a bruise. And like the name, I thought it looked a lot like a mole,” Nicole says.

In her blog, Nicole has described her feelings.

”Some of the excitement of labor had passed, and I would say worry was the main emotion I felt – I recognized that it resembled a mole, but I had never seen anything like it, and I was worried it might be harmful to her. None of the nurses had said anything about it at this point, but I wasn’t sure what to ask so I just held her tight and loved on her.”

A report by the National Organization for Rare Diseases states that CMN can take the form of light brown or black patches, and can reach almost any size on any part of the body.

Nicole and her partner now want to highlight their daughter’s uniqueness, in a bid to encourage others that being slightly different isn’t something to be ashamed of, but rather proud of.

“For a lot of people, this is the first time seeing a birthmark like hers and that’s part of why I enjoy sharing,” Hall said.

“This is a good conversation for parents with their children to see kids have differences, or for those parents who do have a kid that looks like Winry or has any kind of a birthmark to see their child represented.”

Given that Winry’s birthmark could put her at an increased risk of developing melanoma (skin cancer), her parents take precautions to protect her skin. Nicole, though, said that she’s more worried that her daughter will encounter bullying when she grows older.

“Her health and happiness are our top priority. We have to monitor her with sunscreen. I’m careful with hats and that sort of thing,” Hall explained to Good Morning America.

“I know our regular dermatology appointment is probably going to be our best friend growing up.”

As for how Winry sees the world, she’s a happy, energetic little girl without a care in the world. In short, she’s everything a baby should be.

“She just radiates joy. She’s almost always laughing or shrieking,” Hall said. “She is just the happiest baby I have ever seen.

“She’s a big talker already. We haven’t got a whole lot of words out, but she tells you like it is and she’s already getting a little bit of sassiness, so I think we’re gonna have a lot on our hands.”

We here at Newsner agree that differences should be celebrated, and never mocked or looked down upon. We think Winry is a truly special little girl, and a beautiful soul to boot

If You Were Spanked As A Child, Their Is A Strong Chance You Developed This Disorder

Back in the day, it was rather usual to obtain a spanking for rowdy behavior.

If you were a youngster in the 60s, 70s, 80s and even the 90s, its liekly you got smacked with moms and dad’s hand or in even more severe cases you might have been the target of a belt whipping.

Over the years, while it has actually become less typical to physically abuse a kid, some parents still do it, yet latest research reveals that as opposed to showing the youngster a lesson, striking just instructs a child to make use of physical abuse later in life.

Frequently the reason a mom and dad goes with spanking over other forms of discipline is that it is the much easier way out.

Instead of needing to dissect feelings and habits issues, the moms and dad thinks that they can address the trouble with a straightforward slap. According to scientific research, youngsters who are spanked are more likely to be abusive to others when they mature.

Moms and dads who hit as well as utilize objects such as belts to strike their youngsters declare that this type of discipline helped their parenting and they ended up being chastised for it.

However, did it really help? Moms who spanked were more likely to smoke and consume alcohol while they were expecting, in time studies have actually verified that these actions really did not do anything great for the wellness of the child.

We learned from our forefathers’ blunders when it pertained to what compounds we put in our expectant bodies, but when it comes to physical spanking, it is still taking place frequently with moms and dads.

Scientists claim that partaking in physical abuse serves as a psychological as well as vindictive release more for the parent, but ends up just causing more issues with our kids.

In research performed by the College of Texas Medical Branch, 800 grownups were evaluated as grown-up that were hit by their parents.

Regardless of whether someone experienced child abuse or not, spanking alone was predictive of dating violence, the study’s lead Psychiatry Teacher at The College of Texas Medical Branch, Jeff Temple said.

In a piece composed by Dr. Denise Cummins, in Psychology Today, moms and dads are not just bigger in size than kids, they are much more developed in every way, and should be able to find other ways of discipline.

In today’s world of bullying, we have experienced firsthand the outcome of bigger kids obtaining up on smaller sized ones, yet parents still take part in physically abusive actions with their much smaller kids.

When a parent tries to get children to behave better by hitting them, that parent is telling them that hitting people who are smaller and weaker than you is an acceptable way of getting what you want from them. Why should it surprise that parent when their children beat up smaller children at school or grow up to be wife beaters? claimed Cummins.

The only thing that hitting does to a youngster is to transform them into upset, resentful grownups, with mental as well as emotional problems.

A large meta-analysis of studies on the effects of punishment found that the more physical punishment children receive, the more defiant they are toward parents and authorities, the poorer their relationships with parents, the more likely they are to report hitting a dating partner or spouse, Cummins stated.

They are also more likely to suffer mental health problems, such as anxiety, depression, and substance abuse problems, and less likely to empathize with others or internalize norms of moral behavior.

Veteran’s Daughters Violate School Dress Code, Now He’s Ready For War

A Texas school is under fire after saying that a veteran’s twin daughters wore jackets that violated the dress code because of the large patriotic image on the back. Unfortunately for the school, the father was ready to go to war over it.

From the flag outside their Providence Village home to the photos inside, the Rolens are a proud military family. Phil Rolen and his wife are Air Force veterans, and their eleven-year-old twins Kaidence and Abigail were even born on an Air Force base. So, the new jackets they bought to wear to Aubrey Middle School shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone. “The Air Force ones they picked out — we might’ve nudged them a little bit,” Phil said.

The twins had purchased the jackets with money they earned by selling cakes in a jar, but the girls didn’t expect the reaction they received from teachers once they stepped into their 5th-grade classrooms. “She yelled at me and said that’s out of the dress code and that she would get me in trouble if I wore something out of dress code,” Kaidence said.

When Phil Rolen learned about the school’s request to put the jackets away, the disabled Iraq War veteran wasn’t pleased. He called the principal and was told the Air Force logo was fine, but it was just too large for the dress code. “I have a little bit of a rebellious streak in me, so when I spoke to the principal I told her they’re going to be wearing them still,” Phil said. “I’m hoping the district will use common sense, but we’re not going to back down from this.”

Defiantly, Phil said his twin daughters will continue to wear their sweatshirts even it means disciplinary action or finding a different school to attend. “I’m just not going to raise my kids where they’re going to tip-toe around their patriotism and their civics,” he said. “We don’t disagree with dress codes. It’s a matter of civics, and it’s a matter of patriotism.”

According to the school district, the size of the logos violated the dress code. “Students are allowed to wear solid color ‘hoodies’ that have logos (including military logos) that are smaller than 1 1/2-inch by 1 1/2-inch. Students are welcome to wear outerwear that may have larger logos to and from school, on the bus, to games and after-school activities, but they must be left in lockers during the school day,” Aubrey ISD Superintendent Debby Sanders said.

However, Phil is completely baffled by the school’s take on the matter. “I am ready for this fight,” he said. “I will make it my personal mission to make the district the subject of every news media outlet in the country. The disrespect for our service branches here is amazing. Use common sense.”

Phil says the dress code policy needs to change, not his daughters’ attire. “We’ve certainly fought bigger fights in life,” he said. “The district has a blanket policy that doesn’t allow administrators to make commonsense exceptions to rules that I think most Texans would agree are absolutely superfluous.”

Aubrey Middle School Principal Karen Wright was cordial when she discussed the matter with Phil, but she insisted that the coats violated the rules and said that his daughters would face detention if they continued to wear them. Phil also stated his surprise that something like this could happen in a small town in Texas where “the kids still say the Pledge of Allegiance over the loudspeaker every morning.”

The school district received pressure from outraged social media users and eventually decided to reverse the controversial ban on large military logos after Aubrey ISD Superintendent Debby Sanders concluded a review of the school’s dress code. “We have decided to allow students to wear larger military logos,” Sanders said. “Aubrey ISD will be allowing students to wear official U.S. military logos of any size on hoodies until the dress code can be revisited.”

Superintendent Sanders said they hold no ill will towards the Armed Forces. “Aubrey ISD wholeheartedly supports the men and women of our armed services and our military veterans who have given so much for their country,” she said. “It is our honor and our duty to support our men and women in uniform and Aubrey ISD will continue to do so.”

“The administration of the school district was dead wrong on that,” Phil Rolen said. “We were proud they made the decision to reverse their decision.” So, there you have it. Thanks to the power of social media users coming together, the Aubrey Independent School District changed its policy.

This story highlights the issue that some Americans have with public schools. In this case, the rules were enforced without common sense being utilized. There is no reason school children should not be able to show loud and proud support for our brave men and women in uniform. This never should have been a battle that needed to be fought, but kudos to Phil for standing up for what’s right.

Woman Is Suing McDonald’s Because Their Advertisements “Made” Her Eat Cheeseburgers

McDonald’s made me eat it. That’s what one woman is claiming in a first-of-its-kind lawsuit claiming that McDonald’s advertisements were so good, she had no choice but to eat the dang burger and fries. The lawsuit, which was filed in Russia, has a religious undertone to it as well.

The fast-food corporation finds itself facing time in court because Ksenia Ovchinnikova, an Orthodox Christian, claims that McDonald’s advertisements made her break her fast for lent back in 2019.

Because of the season, Ksenia was trying to avoid meat, dairy, poultry, and meat by-products for the entire length of Lent. As an Orthodox Christian, Ksenia follows the Julian calendar, which defines lent as a strict period of fasting from animal products. According to the Russian, she had maintained her fast for an entire month before a McDonald’s commercial made her break her fast in April 2019.

The lawsuit claims that McDonald’s violated Russia’s consumer protection law and also insulted her religious practice by advertising such delicious food during lent when she was most vulnerable to the temptation of tasty burgers, fries, and chicken nuggets.

The pro-Christian lawsuit claims that McDonald’s should not have advertised their meat and dairy products when Christians were trying to stay away from them. Her lawsuit has requested a sum totaling about $14 or 1,000 rubles because McDonald’s owes her for the moral damage she sustained.

For nearly two decades, Ksenia was able to maintain her fast during lent. She successfully did it for nineteen years. But during this year, McDonald’s tempted her with their commercials, and she was compelled to go to the nearest McDonald’s location in Omsk, Russia, and order herself a burger.

“By this point, I had already been fasting for a month, but when I saw an advertising banner, I could not help myself. I visited McDonald’s and bought a cheeseburger,” Ksenia Ovchinnikova wrote in her statement. “In the actions of McDonald’s, I see a violation of the consumer protection law. I ask the court to investigate and, if a violation has taken place, to oblige McDonald’s LLC to compensate me for moral damage in the amount of one thousand rubles.”

So far, the court has not yet set a date to hear her claim. However, it is possible that McDonald’s could be taken to court in Russia for advertising their enticing meat products during lent.

Readers of Daily Mail believe this woman is taking things too far.

“That’s like suing a lingerie ad because it made a man cheat on his wife.”

“Always someone else’s fault, whatever happened to taking responsibility for one’s own actions?”

“Did she take into account that not everyone is fasting for lent due to religious reasons, and they do want to see an advertisement for hamburgers?”

A staunch critic even said that Russia should “charge her for wasting court’s time.”

One person joked: “I saw an advert for an electric car and immediately felt an urge to become a lefty greeno loser- can I sue the manufacturer concerned?”

Sweater at Target dubbed ‘deeply offensive;’ Target responds: Get over it

Nowadays, people get easily offended by things we somehow considered normal back in the day. Sometimes, these feelings are totally justified, while other times, they seem like nothing but exageration.

It is up to you to decided whether the young woman from the following story was right about getting mad with Target for selling what she considered a very offensive sweater.

Namely, Reign Murphy is a regular customer at the store, so one day, she decided to go shopping. Among the plenty of stuff offered there, her attention was attracted by a red sweater. However, once she picked it in her hand, she was shocked by what was written on it. The sweater said: “OCD Obsessive Cristmas Disorder.” Having been suffering from this psychological disorder around 2.2 million Americans suffer from, she was deeply offended. Reign believed the store shouldn’t have mocked with something like that.

She then snapped a photo of the sweater and shared it on Twitter. The number of shares and comments surprised her. Many people shared her opinion and believed the writing on the piece of clothing was ofending in deed. Of course, there were aslo those thought the message was neither disrespectful nor hurtful, despite dealing with the condition themselves.

Target spokesperson, Jessica Carlson, apologized to those offended by the product but said they won’t stop selling it.

Previously, another woman claimed some of the designes sold at Target were insulting, such as the shirts with signatures such as “bride,””trophy,” and “Mrs.”

According to her, these designes led to the belief that a woman could be bought or sold.

Robert De Niro Shares Terrible News

In 1997, Robert De Niro married Grace Hightower. Despite their separation in 1999, the pair eventually rekindled their relationship and renewed their wedding vows in 2004.

However, the couple’s tumultuous love affair continued when they filed for divorce in 2018.

De Niro has stated that his bank accounts are running dry as Hightower continues to spend his money like it’s limitless, forcing him to take on any role available to pay the bills.

A judge has recently ruled that Hightower should receive $1 million a year from De Niro. Furthermore, the couple must split any proceeds made from selling their shared $20 million house.

This divorce battle started years ago after Hightower officially filed for divorce in December 2018.

De Niro and Hightower battled it out over their nine-year-old kid’s custody in the beginning. However, their conflict has evolved to include money and property, with each side attempting to finalize their divorce and split permanently.

Hightower, on the other hand, maybe devouring cash at a rate that De Niro, a high-paid star, can’t match.

Hightower spends approximately $215,000 every month on credit cards as well as an additional $160,000 each month in cash according to court papers.

De Niro’s attorney, Caroline Krauss, stated that the actor is rapidly running out of money because his ex-wife spends it quicker than he earns it.

The outbreak of coronavirus has made it more difficult for De Niro to gain acting roles as Hollywood productions have shut down due to the pandemic.

However, despite all of this, De Niro still managed to rake in $5 million for his starring role in Martin Scorsese’s latest gangster film, The Irishman.

In addition, he qualified for a federal relief program for coronavirus which gave him “tens of millions of dollars”.

Hightower’s attorneys claim De Niro is worth $500 million while the website Celebrity Net Worth agrees.

However, Caroline Krauss argues that De Niro’s estranged wife’s spendy habits have significantly depleted the actor’s savings.

“Mr. De Niro is 77 years old. And while he loves his craft, he should not be forced to work at this prodigious pace because he has to,” Krauss stated.

“When does that stop? When does he get the opportunity to not maybe take every project that comes along? Or not work six-day weeks, 12-hour days, simply to keep up with Ms. Hightower’s thirst for Stella McCartney?”

While the coronavirus pandemic has been going on, De Niro has been traveling back and forth between his Manhattan home in Tribeca, an estate in New Paltz, and another apartment he rents out in Manhattan.

Once their home finally sells though, De Niro will have to buy his ex-wife another place to live.

De Niro will have to pay most of his earnings from his next two movies in taxes.

“There’s nothing ordinary about these expenses for 99.99999% of the world.

These are extraordinary to an almost unimaginable degree,” said Justice Matthew Cooper. “I want to get these parties divorced.

I want to get Mr. De Niro and Ms. Hightower to go their separate ways.

They’re both going to come out of this richer than most human beings who walk this earth. There’s no question about it.”

People Defend Catherine Whose Face Was Called ‘Aged’ While She Was Grieving Beloved Grandma Queen

The Queen’s death devastated many people, including royal fans and family.

The Princess of Wales saw her as a mentor and was spotted grieving her demise during a tribute walk.

Some royal fans focused on Kate’s appearance, calling her “aged.”

Loyal fans reacted to the trolls.

Kate Middleton has been in the royal family for over a decade. Following her marriage to Prince William in 2011, she became committed to a life of royal service, and expectedly, she has been entirely devoted to the cause, learning her duties like the Queen.

Simultaneously, the new Princess of Wales rubbed shoulders with the number one pro in the game, the Queen. She saw the monarch as her mentor.

According to an insider, initially, Kate found it challenging to be close with the Queen as she sought to please the crown. But over the years, their relationship metamorphosed from a close bond to a more profound friendship.

This happened after William moved with his family from Anmer Hall, Norfolk, to Kensington Palace, a stone’s throw from the Queen’s Buckingham Palace.

Kate and the Queen’s relationship involved chit-chatting over a cup of tea, or sometimes, they arranged formal meetings where the Queen would “give intense one-on-one training about taking on the crown.”

Indeed, since becoming a royal, Kate has prepared herself to fit into any role perfectly. In 2019, an insider explained that the Queen and the future Queen consort spent time talking about royal matters. The source added:

“She’s taken Kate under her wing. The two will often spend hours discussing royal life and the monarchy’s future.”

Following their bond, the Queen grew confident in Kate and her abilities to be a “great queen” in the future.

Although a source claimed that the Princess of Wales is nervous about her future title and role, she is always ready to take on the challenge.

Kate has been described as a woman willing to learn and improve in wisdom and courage. As such, these traits will egg her on and, undoubtedly, make her suitable for whatever role she settles in, no matter how sudden it comes.

The Queen was convinced about her granddaughter-in-law and had faith in William. Reportedly, “the queen feels confident that they cross all the boxes to rule.”

One of the ways the Queen showed her pride in Kate was by bestowing her with the total family order meant for only the female members of the royal family who have served for many years. According to the editor of Majesty Magazine:

“The Queen very much regards Catherine as … a safe pair of hands. She’s been a member of the royal family for ten years now. I think, given all that’s going on in the past few years in the royal family regarding the fallouts. … The Queen has great trust in Kate.”


Apart from being astute leaders, the Prince and Princess of Wales have actively included their kids, George, Charlotte, and Louis, in the royal business. Over the years, they have exercised caution in raising their kids correctly without putting them in the limelight.

How the Prince and Princess of Wales Reacted to the Queen’s Failing Health

Following the Queen’s health decline, Prince William and Princess Catherine moved even closer to her. However, they continued to perform their duties as senior royal members and close family to the Queen.

Whether the world believes Kate is old or not, the Princess of Wales has an undebatable character that has been tested and trusted by the Queen, and so far, she is living up to expectations.

As soon as the Prince and Princess of Wales heard the news of the Queen’s critical health condition, William rushed to her Balmoral Estate in Scotland, driving about sixty-four kilometers.

Kate did not accompany him and remained in Windsor, as it was their children’s first full day of school at Lambrook, and she needed to pick them up.

Sadly, a few hours later, the Queen’s peaceful death was announced, and this was a devastating blow to everyone close to the monarch.

The next day, Kate was spotted clad in black and wearing dark sunglasses to hide her emotions. Experts maintain that this would also be a heavy blow for her great-grandkids, William’s children, as they move to Adelaide Cottage, where the Queen lived for most of the year.

Again, William left his family in the care of his wife as he jetted off to Aberdeenshire after two days of mourning.

William Paid the Most Thoughtful Tribute in Words and Actions

A few days after the Queen’s death, William shared a heartfelt tribute to his grandmother. He admitted that the world lost a great leader, but he lost a grandmother who acted as a confidante and guided his wife.

Amid the Queen’s mentorship role and support, William acknowledged that she provided great company to his kids, with whom they shared lifelong memories.

He concluded by pledging his unwavering support to his father, now the King, adding that this is the best way to honor her memory.

Amid the Queen’s death, William made a shocking move. He invited his brother, Harry, and Meghan to join him for their walkabout outside Windsor’s gates

This was unexpected by their security and royal fans. The brothers had not been seen interacting publicly due to their strained relationship, even though they attended the Platinum Jubilee to honor their grandmother.

However, recently, they showed extraordinary unity as they walked closely, waving and smiling at the people. They later left in the same car.

An insider mentioned that it was an “extraordinary historical moment and a deeply personal one for the family…And perhaps some of these wounds would be healed in the process.”

Kate Goes under Fire for Her Appearance

While many royal fans cheered the Prince of Wales for his compassion in including his brother in the historical family ceremony, some could not help but notice how his wife looked during the walkabout.

Kate, dressed modestly in a black dress paired with black shoes while she debuted a new hair color, was criticized for looking “aged” after a shared post via Hollywood’s Instagram page. One person wrote:

“She looks like she’s aged so much and always looks sad to me. I feel sorry for her; I don’t know why.”

Another fan quipped, “Wow, Kate and Camilla are starting to look alike.” A third commenter added, “She looks really old, like 60. What’s going on?”

Amid the tongue-lashing from trolls and what appeared as concern from some fans, Kate was defended by a host of others who related her appearance to her responsibilities. One comment read:

“She has a lot on her shoulders with duty and motherhood. Then the Queen’s death. She’s tired, and I’m sure royal life isn’t for the faint of heart.”

Another fan critically assessed the image shared by the Instagram account and replied:

“First, darlings, the lighting is horrible. Second, she is not old. Third, for her age, she looks fabulous. Four, she has had 0 plastic surgery. Have fun aging; it’s not for the weak. Lol.”

Whether the world believes Kate is old or not, the Princess of Wales has an undebatable character that has been tested and trusted by the Queen, and so far, she is living up to expectations as far as her duties are concerned.

Broken Mom Dies Just a Few Hours after Learning Her 5-Month-Old Son Has Passed Away

When a new mom’s five-month-old baby suddenly fell sick past midnight, she rushed him to the hospital with her partner. Later that day, she breathed her last in the same hospital hours after learning her son was no more.

Becoming parents for the first time is a joyful feeling that most couples yearn to experience. They wish to hold a mini-version of themselves and are willing to go the extra mile to protect their little ones.

As a parent, a person’s worst nightmare is seeing their child in pain. The couple in today’s story was in the same boat when their baby suddenly fell sick. They expected their son to recover soon, but fate had other plans.

A Happy Family

Viktorija Mardosiene moved to North Staffordshire in 2020, where she lived with her partner. Before then, in 2016, Mardosiene had moved to England from her home country, Lithuania, leaving her 12-year-old daughter behind.

Mardosiene started a new life in her Newcastle home, where she welcomed her son, Kevin Dugutis, at the beginning of 2022. She was living a perfect life with her partner until the day her son suddenly fell sick.

Sounds of sirens echoed near Mardosiene’s home at 12:42 a.m. on August 9 as two ambulances approached her house. She had called for help after Kevin’s health suddenly deteriorated post his bedtime meal.

An Emergency

The first responders said Kevin was in “critical condition” when they arrived at Mardosiene’s house. They provided him with “advanced life support” at his residence and on their way to the Royal Stoke University Hospital.

They weren’t ready to deal with the pain of losing two family members a few hours apart.

Meanwhile, Mardosiene and her partner prayed for their little one’s health. They felt terrible watching him in pain and eagerly waited for the doctors to tell them what had happened to Kevin.

The Unexpected Death

Unfortunately, the doctors told Mardosiene and her partner something they never wanted to hear. Kevin closed his eyes forever in the hospital room, more than two hours after his bedtime meal. Mardosiene’s sister, Tatjana Abraitiene, said:

“I said the last goodbye to my nephew. I kissed him and told him, ‘I’m so sorry. I can’t change anything.’ It was horrible.”

Abraitiene revealed that her sister was beyond devastated after learning about Kevin’s death. While mourning, Mardosiene said she didn’t want to live. She said she wanted to join her son, unaware that her wish would be granted soon.

The Unbearable Pain

Abraitiene also shared that she and her sister had waited for Kevin’s birth for a long time. She recalled when she brought Mardosiene from the hospital after Kevin’s birth. The little boy had only been in this world for five months.

After Kevin’s death, Mardosiene’s family didn’t let her leave the hospital, fearing she might hurt herself at home. Instead, they trusted the National Health Service to look after her until she could accept her little one’s death. Abraitiene revealed:

“Two police officers came to my home later and told me she was dead. I had no words.”

Double Tragedy

Mardosiene breathed her last inside Stoke-on-Trent’s main hospital at 5 p.m., the same day her son died. The hospital staff said that the distressed mother suddenly collapsed and passed away.

While her family was trying to accept Kevin’s unexpected demise, the shock of Mardosiene’s sudden death hit them. They weren’t ready to deal with the pain of losing two family members a few hours apart. Abraitiene said:

“She [Mardosiene] was my everything, my other part. I will miss talking to her and going on walks together.”

Demanding Answers<

It was painful for Abraitiene to accept her sister’s death. She remembered Mardosiene as the girl who spread smiles and always had something to say to make others happy. Abraitiene confessed during an interview:

“It has been a month since they died, and the hospital still has no answers. I just need to know exactly what happened.”

While Abraitiene demanded answers from the Royal Stoke University Hospital, the organization’s chief nurse advised the family to contact the Patient Advice and Liason Team. The chief nurse refrained from commenting publicly about Mardosiene’s case.

The Comments

Netizens were heartbroken after finding out about Mardosiene’s sudden death after she lost Kevin. The news of the double tragedy spread on social media, and people expressed their opinions in the comments section. Here are some of the comments:

“Devastating. They were my tenants, and my thoughts go to everyone. Beautiful family.”
