    London (CNN)It was the most poignant reminder we've had that Britain's aging Queen is in the twilight of her reign: Prince Charles sitting in the consort's throne in the Palace of Westminster, looking forlornly across to his mother's crown, which sat in her place. Elizabeth II has only missed the State Opening of Parliament twice before in her 70-year reign, both times because she was pregnant.This year she missed it because she simply couldn't get there, due to "mobility issues." All we know about these issues is that they are "episodic;" the palace won't divulge any further detail on her health, as they see it as a matter of patient confidentiality.What is clear is that the episodes are becoming more frequent and disruptive. The Queen keeps canceling engagements at the last minute, and that now includes the ones that were previously set in stone in her diary. Opening the new parliamentary session is a core constitutional responsibility for the British monarch. It can't happen without her, just like the signing of parliamentary bills into law and the appointment of new...

    IT'S hard to imagine a time when Kate Middleton wasn't a key player in the Royal Family. But in 2010, the Duchess of Cambridge's world was turned upside down when her engagement to Prince William was announced by the Palace. 3Kate Middleton [pictured in 2006] dressed like any other woman in her twenties before her engagement was announcedCredit: Getty 3Months before her engagement was announced in 2010, the Duchess started to dress for her upcoming royal roleCredit: Camera Press The couple - who had met as students at the University of St Andrews - had been dating for 10 years before they tied the knot at Westminster Abbey in a ceremony watched by 36.7m people around the world. However in the months leading up to their engagement, royal expert Tom Quinn claims Kate underwent a major change to her image. Appearing on the Channel 5 documentary William & Kate: Too Good To Be True, the author said the future Duchess tweaked her personal style to something "more appropriate" for a member of the Royal Family. The expert said: "Her clothing...
    A TRADER has been left feeling a right "plonker" trying to flog Platinum Jubilee souvenirs with an Only Fools and Horses-style error. A Chinese warehouse mistranslated the Queen's 70 year celebrations and marked up memorabilia crockery with 'To Commemorate the Platinum Jubbly’ - instead of Jubilee. 3The Queen will celebrate her Platinum Jubilee this yearCredit: Getty 3Platinum Jubilee crockery Karl Baxter, who is sitting on 13,000 cups, saucers and plates, has compared himself to Del Boy Trotter famous for his comic line 'lovely jubbly'. He is hoping to shift the collectables ahead of the summer's nationwide four-day jubilee party. Karl, CEO of Wholesale Clearance UK in Poole, in Dorset said: "There’ll be no shortage of royal memorabilia to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee as retailers have long been selling souvenirs on royal occasions. "In classic Del Boy style, we naturally stepped in to help shift the Platinum ‘Jubbly’ stock.  "Previous royal occasion memorabilia are often sought after by collectors, as they’re a great excuse to go out and buy a piece of history which will increase in value over time. "Besides, what could...

    News Prince Andrew will face a lawsuit in US over claims he sexually assaulted Virginia Roberts Giuffre when she was 17 will cast a 'horrid shadow' over the Queen's Platinum Jubilee year, royal experts have claimed.  Nigel Cawthorne, author of Prince Andrew: Epstein, Maxwell and the Palace, said there can be 'little doubt' the legal proceedings will impact plans to celebrate Her Majesty's milestone 70 years on the throne.  He noted it will be a 'major disappointment' to the Queen, 95, who enjoys a close relationship with her 61-year-old son, and will bring back memories of the 'annus horribilis' of 1992, which was marred by the collapse of Charles, Andrew and Anne's respective marriages, and a great fire at Windsor Castle.  Meanwhile Phil Dampier said it is 'the last thing' the Queen needs and her familial struggles will likely me 'taking a toll' on her personally.  He suggested the Royal Family will be doing 'all they can to limit the damage' so the 'Queen can enjoy the year'.   Andrew, the Queen's favourite son, is today under pressure to settle with Virginia...
    With omicron variant cases rising in the U.S., major cruise lines are taking precautions to protect travelers. Royal Caribbean is the latest to be plagued by the ongoing pandemic. The company’s Symphony of the Seas ship returned to its home port in Miami with 48 confirmed cases of COVID-19 on Saturday – out of a passenger and crew load of more than 6,000.  A day later, the cruise line’s Odyssey of the Seas ship was diverted from its eight-night voyage after a passenger tested positive for the respiratory virus.

    Ben von Bourdain (Tolga AKMEN / AFP / Archives), Managing Director, Royal Dutch Shell, London on January 31, 2019 Shares of Shell, a hydrocarbon company, voted overwhelmingly on Friday in favor of relocating the group’s headquarters from the Netherlands to the United Kingdom and the Royal Dutch exit from the group’s name. Committee Chairman Andrew McKenzie praised the “overwhelming support of shareholders” in an official document, 99.77% of whom voted in favor of the projects at a meeting in Rotterdam. The panel will therefore transfer senior executives to London, including its tax residence and CEO Ben von Beardon. The company will have 8,500 employees in the Netherlands. The transaction will strengthen Shell’s competitiveness and accelerate the implementation of its strategy to become a shareholder distribution and net zero emission energy company by 2050, “he said in a statement. McKenzie said the board must formally approve the plans “as soon as possible in a reasonable manner” before they can take effect. Europe’s largest energy company wants to simplify its structure and realign its tax settlement with the registered country, the...
    Authorities in France arrested former Saudi Royal Guard member Khalid Aedh al-Otaibi Tuesday, one of several international suspects in the grisly murder and dismemberment of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi in 2018. Khashoggi was assassinated inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey three years ago in a story that made major international news and reached the highest levels of the Saudi government. Otaibi is one of 26 suspects in the murder, and his apprehension at Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris marks the first international arrest in the case. He was sanctioned by the United States for his suspected role in the killing, along with 16 other individuals. The arrest warrants were issued by Turkey through Interpol, but the Saudi government does not consider Otaibi to be a suspect. U.S. intelligence agencies reported in February that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered the killing of Khashoggi, a prominent critic of the Saudi regime. The Saudis say the killing was a “rogue operation” and that they have already “found and tried and punished” the people involved, reports MSNBC’s Matt Bradley....
    TV star Declan Donnelly prompted laughter today when he introduced Kate Middleton as "Her Majesty".

He opened the event telling guests: "Shortly we'll be hearing from Her Majesty... Her Royal Highness rather." He chuckled: "I've just promoted you there, rather prematurely." Ant McPartlin, standing beside him at the podium, tried to rescue his pal, saying: "That must happen all the time." Dec replied: "It doesn't happen to me. We'll be hearing from Her Royal Highness, rather, very shortly. "Then we'll watch a very powerful short film that challenges the perception of addictions."

    From spectral calm in San Francisco last year to thunderous acclaim at the 149th Open on Sunday evening, Collin Morikawa didn’t just place his name next to the legends of the game, he achieved something that’s earned him a page in golf lore that will surely forever remain his own. To win one major championship on your debut in the event is rare enough. To win two is not only territory previously unexplored but hitherto not even considered. Not even by a bloke called Tiger. To think, there were plenty who wondered when he won the US PGA Championship on his first appearance in his home state of California in front of no fans, whether those factors had been pivotal in his success.  Collin Morikawa won The Open at the first attempt as he finished 15 under par on Sunday The 24-year-old, who won the 2020 USPGA Championship, answered any doubts over himself Morikawa's success at his age is impressive and he addressed concerns over his putting RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next ...
    Collin Morikawa narrowly defeated Jordan Spieth, Jon Rahm and Louis Oosthuizen to win the 2021 Open Championship on Sunday. It was Morikawa’s second major victory of his career. He won the PGA Championship in 2020. He is the second player to win The Open Championship and PGA Championship before turning 25, according to ESPN Stats & Info. He joined Tiger Woods in hitting the milestone. It was the first time he played at the event, much like it was his first time playing the PGA Championship when he won the tournament last year. He played the final 31 holes at Royal St. George’s without a bogey. He started the final round of the tournament on shot behind the leader and finished two strokes ahead of Spieth. Morikawa’s score was the lowest score in the 15 times the Open Championship was played at Royal St. George’s. Morikawa finished the tournament 15-under par. Spieth was 13-under while Rahm and Oosthuizen finished 11-under. South African pro Dylan Frittelli rounded out of the top five with a 9-under. Ryan Gaydos is the sports editor...
    (CNN)Most people can't wait to head to the coast and sample the delights of the sun, sea, sand and an ice cream or two.Golfers, however, are less so sure -- at least when they're playing links golf.The Open golf tournament is usually staged on courses located near the sea in the UK, which usually consist of sandy soil and are shaped by natural terrain.After an excellent first round at the 2021 Open, Jordan Spieth was relishing the chance he has to test himself at the Royal St George's course in Kent, UK.However, other golfers are less convinced by the delights of playing golf by the sea.Read More"It's not my favorite venue that we've played. There are quite a few blind tee shots, hitting to nothing, fairways that are quite undulating," said four-time major winner Brooks Koepka in his pre-tournament press conference.Koepka plays his second shot on the 1st hole.Links golf is a harsh, unique style of course which can punish you for the slightest mistake, but a bit like that ice cream by the sea, when you game comes together...

    SANDWICH, England (AP) — Louis Oosthuizen set a 36-hole record at the British Open and is halfway to ending that run of near misses at the majors. Now all he has to do is hold off a cast of major champions on the weekend at Royal St. George’s. On a day of pleasant summer weather that took the fear out of the links off Sandwich Bay, Oosthuizen broke away from a three-way tie with a birdie-birdie-eagle run from the 12th hole. He shrugged off his first bogey of the week for a 5-under 65 and a two-stroke lead on Friday. Former PGA champion Collin Morikawa had a 64 in the morning and was two shots behind. Another shot back was Jordan Spieth (67), going after his fourth major. Lurking was two-time major champion Dustin Johnson, the No. 1 player in the world who shot 65 and was tied for fourth, four strokes behind Oosthuizen. “The game is good, but I know it’s a really good leaderboard,” Oosthuizen said. “I’ll have to play good golf this weekend if I want to...

This week, the game’s oldest major championship returns to Royal St. George’s in Sandwich, England. It was only a matter of time before Jon Rahm (8/1) won his first major championship, and it came last month in the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines. Rahm teed it up for the first time in three weeks after his maiden major win and was in contention at the Scottish Open before settling for a seventh-place finish. Looking beyond the favorite, here are our picks for the British Open: Brooks Koepka (18/1) The “Bet Brooks Koepka in major championships” narrative continues because he keeps showing up in them and either winning or contending at the minimum. Koepka already has a runner-up...
    THE most powerful naval flotilla to sail from Britain since the Falklands War has been struck by a major Covid outbreak - after sailors went raving in Cyprus. Almost half the warships in the Royal Navy's carrier strike group have been hit by positive cases. 3A UK carrier strike group entered the port of Limassol, Cyprus, spearheaded by HMS Queen Elizabeth, as part of a 28-week deploymentCredit: Cpl Lee Matthews/RAF/TNG 3A Covid outbreak has hit the 100-strong crew of the flagship aircraft carrierCredit: Cpl Lee Matthews/RAF/TNG They include at least 100 crew of the flagship aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth - who were all double jabbed. The virus ripped through the strike group's 3,700-strong crew after sailors were given a run ashore in Limassol. Navy sources insisted that none of the positive cases needed sick bay admission and numbers are starting to fall. But the ships will have to stay at sea for at least another three weeks and their next port calls could be postponed if the virus continues to spread.

    Jerry O’Connell Is “In Talks” to Replace Sharon Osbourne on The Talk Are Jan. 6 rioters traitors? So far, criminal charges say no The last major of 2021 and the final major championship for the next nine months is nearly here, and there's plenty to get behind this week during the 149th Open Championship at Royal St. George's. The stars of the sport are going to fill up the majority of the talking points this week -- as they should -- but there is certainly a hierarchy when it comes to who you should be rooting for among the top players. © Provided by CBS Sports With so many big names coming into this edition of the oldest major from different angles, we need to straighten some of the stories behind them and what each has at stake in Sandwich over the next several days.
