    In pictures: William joins Windrush generation to celebrate monument unveiling

    Will and Kate attended the unveiling of a monument to the Windrush generation at Waterloo station today, as the duke condemned the racist abuse that many black Britons still face.

    The monument was created by the Jamaican artist Basil Watson.

    In a speech to those who had gathered for the unveiling, which included Windrush passengers and high-profile members of the black community, William said: “We know without question that the Windrush generation have made our culture richer, our services stronger, and our fellow countrymen safer.”

    William also spoke of the Windrush scandal which began to surface in 2017 after it emerged that hundreds of Commonwealth citizens, many of whom were from the Windrush generation, had been wrongly detained, deported and denied legal rights.

    He said: “Sadly, that is also the case for members of the Windrush generation who were victims of racism when they arrived here, and discrimination remains an all too familiar experience for black men and women in Britain in 2022.

    “Only a matter of years ago, tens of thousands of that generation were profoundly wronged by the Windrush scandal. That rightly reverberates throughout the Caribbean community here in the UK as well as many in the Caribbean nations.

    “Therefore, alongside celebrating the diverse fabric of our families, our communities and our society as a whole – something the Windrush generation has contributed so much to – it is also important to acknowledge the ways in which the future they sought and deserved has yet to come to pass.

    “Diversity is what makes us strong, and it is what reflects the modern, outward-looking values that are so important to our country.”

    Last month, during a school shooting in Texas, a teacher was shot dead along with another teacher and 19 children.

    Meghan Markle called the family of a teacher who was gunned down in a school shooting last month.

    John Martinez, the nephew of a teacher killed in the Uvalde shooting in Texas described Meghan as “sweet and lovely” after she called the family to share her condolences.

    He wrote on Twitter: “The way my mom just got off the phone with Meghan Markle…the Duchess, she’s so sweet and lovely, she really went out of her way to check on the family, it means so much.”

    The other teacher was Eva Mireles. Her husband, Jose Antonio, died two days after his wife due to a heart attack, which the family attribute to the sudden loss of his wife of 24 years.

    Windrush generation makes our culture richer, says William as monument unveiled

    Black men and women are still facing racism and discrimination in modern-day Britain in a nation that would be poorer without the efforts of the Windrush generation, the Duke of Cambridge has said.

    William was speaking as he and the Duchess of Cambridge attended the unveiling of a national monument at London's Waterloo Station to celebrate the dreams and courage of the Windrush generation who came to help Britain rebuild after the Second World War.

    The monument is a 12-ft statue – of a man, woman and child in their Sunday best standing on top of suitcases – that was unveiled on Wednesday to mark Windrush Day.

    In a speech to those who had gathered for the unveiling, which included Windrush passengers and high-profile members of the black community, William said: "We know without question that the Windrush generation have made our culture richer, our services stronger, and our fellow countrymen safer."

    William also spoke of the Windrush scandal which began to surface in 2017 after it emerged that hundreds of Commonwealth citizens, many of whom were from the Windrush generation, had been wrongly detained, deported and denied legal rights.

    Prince of Wales claims he was being ‘airbrushed’ out of son William's life

    Prince Charles had “explosive rows” with his eldest son, Prince William, after feeling that he was being “airbrushed” out of the Cambridges’ lives, it’s reported.

    Insiders say the Prince of Wales was hurt when William became close to the Middleton family – and felt “bruised” by their relationship.

    Charles is rarely able to attend last-minute family events as his busy diary is organised up to six months in advance, they said.

    It means he has been forced to miss “impromptu” birthday parties for his grandchildren George, Charlotte and Louis, the Daily Mail reports.

    Royal editor Rebecca English said: “Explosive rows between father and son were often overheard by staff, with Charles — who hates family confrontations — burying himself in his paperwork to avoid the conflict.”

    However, in recent years the men have become much closer as they step up to support the Queen.

    Camilla opens up about her marriage to Prince Charles

    The Duchess of Cornwall is an avid Wordle fan, she revealed in an interview to celebrate her 75th birthday. 

    And Camilla compares her scores on the online word-guessing game every day with her granddaughter over text messages, she added. 

    She told Vogue: “She’ll text me to say ‘I’ve done it in three’. And I say ‘Sorry, I’ve done it in two today.’ 

    “It’s very satisfactory when it tells you how brilliant you are.”

    Camila also told how her and husband Prince Charles try to make time for each in a tell-all chat for her birthday this month.

    But she admitted balancing work with marriage can be difficult.

    The Queen and Prince Charles and the ONLY Royals to be honoured in this very special way

    The mother and son are the only members of the Royal family to have the Union Flag flown to honour their birthdays.

    It has been speculated that the real reason the Queen and Charles only receive this special honour is so it doesn’t cause Prince Andrew to feel embarrassed.

    After losing his titles following the Giuffre scandal, William, Kate, Anne and Edward have lost the privilege too.

    Charles to meet survivors and perpetrators of Rwanda's genocide

    The Prince of Wales will spend his first full day in Rwanda meeting survivors and perpetrators of the country's 1994 genocide, prior to attending a summit of Commonwealth leaders.

    Charles has been encouraged by former Rwandan footballer Eric Murangwa to visit a church outside the Rwandan capital where the remains of tens of thousands of genocide victims are buried.

    Mr Murangwa was sheltered from the killings by teammates, and Charles made him an MBE in recognition of his efforts raising awareness of the genocide against the Tutsi. He is the founder of the organisation Football for Hope, Peace and Unity.

    In April, Mr Murangwa was invited to watch as the prince planted a tree at Dumfries House in commemoration of the genocide victims.

    In 1994 hundreds of thousands of members of the Tutsi community were slaughtered in Rwanda by ethnic Hutu extremists.

    The issue of genocide and reconciliation is said to be very close to the prince's heart and he will visit a village that was targeted.

    Charles & Camilla arrive in Rwanda

    PRINCE Charles and Camilla arrived in Rwanda last night — the first members of the Royal Family to visit the tiny African country.

    It came after Charles, 73, was said to have privately blasted government policy to fly asylum seekers there as "appalling".

    The heir apparent and Camilla, 74, will pay respects to the 800,000 massacred during the Rwandan genocide.

    And they will open the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting on behalf of the Queen, 96, during a four-day trip.

    The European Court of Human Rights last week stopped the first asylum seeker flight to Rwanda.

    20 years ago, Windsor Castle caught fire

    The fire destroyed more than 100 rooms, and needed more than 200 firefighters to oust the raging blazer.

    The fire started in Queen Victoria’s Private Chapel, where a broken spotlight set fire to a curtain next to the altar.

    The fire broke out on the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh’s wedding anniversary, 20 November 1992.

    It quickly spread to St George’s Chapel, at around 11:30pm and wasn’t fully put out till 2:30am on Saturday 21 November 1992. Fire services from London, Buckinghamshire, Surrey and Oxfordshire, as well as from Berkshire were asked to help.

    The Queen was devastated but luckily she wasn’t at the castle when the fire broke out.

    After 115 rooms were completely ruined, the restoration work took five years to complete, the official date being 20 November 1997.

    The year of the fire was particularly difficult for the Queen, after three of her children all god divorced.

    No passport? No problem! The Queen doesn’t have a passport

    Everyone else does, and every other member of the Royal family does.

    Passports are issued in the name of the Queen, so that means she doesn’t need one.

    She doesn’t have a driving licence either.

    Prince William’s milestones

    Prince William Arthur Philip Louis of Wales was born second in line to the throne at St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, at 9.03pm on June 21 1982.

    He weighed 7lb 1 1/2oz and was the firstborn son of heir to the throne, Charles, and the Princess of Wales.

    At just nine months old, he accompanied his parents on their six-week official visit to Australia and New Zealand, a move which was a break from royal tradition.

    His mother, Diana, who separated from Charles in 1992, died in a car crash in 1997.

    He was just 15 and his brother Harry, 12, and the pair walked behind the princess’s coffin during a funeral procession through London.

    William met Kate Middleton at St Andrews University in Fife, Scotland, and the pair wed in 2011 after dating for more than eight years.

    He was made the Duke of Cambridge by his grandmother, the Queen, on the morning of his wedding.
