Kylie JennerAnd Kylie Jenner showed why, as she was her own best advertisement for her latest release. The 24-year-old mogul took to Instagram to share some stunning snaps of herself rocking a flirty pink ensemble on Thursday night. Kylie presented her upcoming makeup range with a touch of matte pink lips and matching blush. She captioned the image gallery for her 356 million followers: "New matte lips coming soon [red heart emoji] @kyliecosmetics." The Lip Kit mogul and her four-year-old son had fun participating in a viral challenge that featured a sound mimicking their own voice. Stormi was seen resting her head on her mother's shoulder as they listened to their made-up conversation, in which Kylie famously said, "Stormi! The original video, posted to fan account @stormiibabii, shows Stormi playfully in her mother's purple Met Gala dress with a lip sync filter over her face. 'Are you kidding me?' The toddler says, to which Kylie - who also had a lip sync filter over her face and is wearing the same dress - replies: "Stormi! The original video then shows Stormi saying, "I hate it," to which Kylie replies, "Storm Storm, that's literally not nice baby." However, the reality star left the last bit of audio out of her video. The duo seemed to find the parody of themselves hilarious as they laughed it off together while listening to the noise. While Stormi burst out laughing, Kylie was seen giggling with her hand covering her mouth as the two lay in bed. The social media sensation captioned the video with a screaming, laughing emoji, as well as a face with a heart-eye emoji. The Kardashians star shares Stormi with rapper boyfriend Travis Scott, 31, along with their baby son - whose name is yet to be revealed. Kylie welcomed her second child with the musician just a day after Stormi turned four on February 2. On Tuesday, the black-haired beauty showed off her cooking skills as she made her "Bae" a club sandwich. Kylie showed off the delicious lunch she made for her significant other on her Instagram Stories. "Bae said I want a sandwich," explained Kylie, who began dating Travis in 2017 after splitting from rapper Tyga, 32. Kylie recently praised Travis on Father's Day, posting a photo of her beau - born Jacques Bermon Webster II - along with Stormi and their baby son. In the heartwarming image, their little boy was sound asleep on his father's chest while Travis lay in bed eating a bowl of pasta while Stormi lay next to her father and brother, wrapped in a white blanket. "Happy Father's Day Daddyyyyy we love you," Kylie captioned the pic, which racked up more than 4.2 million likes in less than two hours.

The San Antonio Spurs may hold the keys to a trade between Kyrie Irving and Russell Westbrook

The Brooklyn Nets and Los Angeles Lakers have been in preliminary talks to trade Kyrie Irving, and word is spreading that the teams will... (Author: Gardener)

Kyrie IrvingThe Brooklyn Nets and Los Angeles Lakers have been in preliminary talks about a trade for Kyrie Irving, and sources suggest the teams are exploring the potential to draw the San Antonio Spurs into a multi-team deal. The Lakers, who sources said are interested in moving to Irving from Russell Westbrook, may have to wait. Westbrook's expiring $47.1 million contract isn't attractive to the Nets, who currently believe they're above the league's $150.3 million luxury tax threshold. League sources stressed that Brooklyn sees resolving Kevin Durant's trade request as a much higher priority than wiping Irving's final $36.9 million off the Nets' books. But the Irving/Westbrook disaster could eventually be resolved with Spurs' help, with San Antonio capping Westbrook's salary for draft considerations. That would help the networks generate a massive trade exception for as much as Irving's entire salary. Both the Lakers and Nets have expensive former All-Stars they would like to relocate. Worst-case scenario, the Lakers can hold on to Westbrook and not overpay in a deal for Irving. And the Nets can emulate what the Houston Rockets did to John Wall last season and just keep Irving under contract and off the field. If the Lakers give up value to get Irving, the team needs a resolution with James over his expiring contract. Ideally, James and Irving would commit (via extend-and-trade) by 2024-25. Whether it's for another year or two, that certainty could be enough for the Lakers to include a first-round pick in a deal. But the availability of that choice in a two-team trade would likely depend on who else the networks send with Irving to match the salary. A healthy shooter like Seth Curry, who has an expiring $8.5 million contract, would be more attractive than Joe Harris. Curry likely brings the Nets a first from the Lakers, but not Harris. Expanded to a three-way deal, the Spurs would also need to sort out an additional salary for Westbrook. Without Curry and Harris, the Lakers could land either Doug McDermott (who owes $27.5 million over the next two seasons) or Josh Richardson (who expires at $12.2 million) from San Antonio. Teams consider veterans like Jakob Pöltl, McDermott and Richardson available. Westbrook would not approach the Spurs and would presumably accept a buyout, presumably at least for the minimum he could get with another franchise (nearly $3 million). With McDermott out and a Westbrook buyout, the Spurs would only add about $16.7 million net — essentially to buy a future from the Lakers first. That could extend to Richardson and McDermott in Los Angeles provided L. The Lakers were more interested in Richardson than McDermott. The challenge for the networks is to understand their own Durant trading needs. Poeltl could be folded into a three-way deal with Irving (although Brooklyn would need to stimulate Spurs further). But that's also why a quicker decision that results in a trade exception of up to $36.9 million might have some appeal. The Portland Trail Blazers recently acquired Jerami Grant ($21 million this season) from the Detroit Pistons via CJ McCollum's trade exemption without having to trade active players (draft considerations only). Brooklyn would have a full year to take advantage of an Irving trade exemption. Another factor to consider is Irving's $5.5 million trade bonus, which would be Brooklyn's obligation if dealt. Irving can use that as a weapon and agree to forego it if dealt exclusively to the Lakers (assuming another team even bid). In the meantime, the nets are under no obligation to honor Durant's trade request, and under no obligation to negotiate with Irving. But Brooklyn may have an opportunity with the Lakers and Spurs who may not be available for long. San Antonio will (and should) be keen to facilitate a deal provided all three teams can agree. If not, the Spurs may find other teams wanting to use their cap space, further limiting the Nets' flexibility in reducing Kyrie's salary.

Megan Fox shows off her stuff in a skimpy metallic fuchsia outfit in NYC

She debuted blonde and pink hair while attending the premiere of fiancé Machine Gun Kelly's documentary earlier this week. (Author: Gardener)

Megan FoxShe debuted blonde and pink hair while attending the premiere of fiancé Machine Gun Kelly's documentary earlier this week. Hours later, Megan was spotted holding hands after his concert at Madison Square Garden in the Big Apple. Megan's all-pink look also featured a racerback crop top and a ruched pencil skirt that hugs the curves. Megan's pink-blonde wig flowed down her back in straight strands with a center parting. Megan's performance came just hours before MGK took the stage at Madison Square Garden as part of its Mainstream Sellout Tour. Before the show began, Machine Gun Kelly - born Colson Baker - took to his Instagram Story to show off his glitzy stage attire and celebrate the iconic venue selling out "in one day". Machine and Megan were seen holding hands after his show at Madison Square Garden. The night before, Megan happily supported her husband-to-be on the red carpet at the premiere of his Hulu documentary Machine Gun Kelly's Life in Pink. For the MGK big night, the Till Death star modeled a skimpy pink halter top dress that showed off her luscious cleavage and toned legs. The mainstream sellout artist coordinated with Megan in a pink look of his own, which consisted of a pink and baby blue cropped sweater that showed off his heavily tattooed abs and bright pink hair, gently slicked back. Along with a flurry of red carpet snaps, the duo posed for a series of shots within the premiere, which were later shared on MGK's Instagram account. "Unfortunately, no tops were cut off during the production of the documentary 'Life in Pink,'" the singer joked in his caption. The pictures showed the smitten duo beaming at each other as Megan sat on Machine Gun Kelly's lap. Life in Pink pulls back the curtain on MGK's rise to fame as one of "this generation's polarizing rock stars". Fans get a first-hand account of the emo girl hitmaker's upbringing, relationship with his father, life with Megan Fox and a near-death experience with his daughter. Kelly shockingly revealed in the documentary, which is currently available to stream on Hulu, how he once attempted suicide while on the phone with Megan. Recalling battling depression following the death of his father, he admitted that one day in July 2020 he was in a "really, really, really dark" place. "I didn't want to leave my room and started getting really, really, really dark. Megan went to Bulgaria to do a movie and I got this really wild paranoia. I was getting paranoid that someone was going to come and kill me," he said in a clip. Kelly described the harrowing night by saying that he was "just frigging nuts." At that time he called his girlfriend at the time, who was shooting a film. And I scream on the phone and like the keg in my mouth," MGK continued. “And I go to cock the shotgun and the bullet when it comes back up the grenade just gets stuck. Megan is dead quiet.' MGK went on to explain that his darkest moment — along with the support of Megan and his 12-year-old daughter Cassie — helped him realize he had to pull himself together. "I figured I really need to get off the drugs this time," he told producers.

Preview: Leicester vs Notts County

Sports Mole preview Saturday's Club Friendlies 1 clash between Leicester City and Notts County including predictions, team news and possible (Author: Gardener)

Notts CountyLeicester City will begin their preparations for the 2022/23 season with a pre-season friendly against National League side Notts County on Saturday afternoon. The Foxes are preparing for their Premier League opener on August 7 against Brentford, while Notts County will start the National League at home to Maidenhead United on August 6. The Foxes reached the semi-finals of last season's Europa Conference League after failing to progress through the group stage of the Europa League while reaching the FA Cup fourth round and EFL Cup quarter-finals. Leicester are set to bid to return to European football for the 2023/24 season and have a packed pre-season schedule over the next few weeks, which will see them face Notts County, OH Leuven, Hull City, Derby County, Preston North End and Sevilla will compete in preparation for the new season. Brendan Rodgers' side will then open their new Premier League season at home to Brentford on August 7, while also set to face Arsenal, Southampton and Chelsea in the first month of the season. Leicester are yet to sign a first-team this summer while things have also been very quiet on the outgoing front, but there is expected to be plenty of movement before the window closes. Notts County, on the other hand, finished fifth in the National League last season, earning them a place in the playoff quarterfinals but losing 2-1 to Grimsby Town after extra time. Notts County kicked off their preparations for the new season with a 5-1 win over Basford United in a friendly on July 5 and they will also face Cambridge United, Boston United, Nottingham Forest and York City in pre-season games before clinching their open National League game against Maidenhead United on August 6th. Leicester hope Wilfred Ndidi can play a few minutes on Saturday as the midfielder recovers from a serious knee injury but it would be a surprise to see him start. The likes of Jamie Vardy, James Maddison, Harvey Barnes and Marc Albrighton have been with the Foxes since the start of preseason and all four are expected to start here. There are once again expected to be sweeping changes throughout this competition, with Baldwin potentially joining after missing out last time through a minor injury, while James Morton, who is on trial at the club, could be given a few more minutes . Cairo Mitchell is expected to start at the top of attack for the National League side while James O'Brien is likely to play in midfield. Notts County will be a competitive opponent for Leicester this weekend and the visitors are slightly ahead of Rodgers' team in terms of preparing for the new season. However, we expect that the Foxes will have too much quality for their National League opponents on Saturday afternoon.

The Untold Truth by David Attenborough

David Attenborough continues his legacy of contributing to Britain and nature. This is the untold truth of David Attenborough. (Author: Gardener)

David AttenboroughIf the sight of a flock of birds, a sweeping mountain range, or blooming flowers has inspired you to write stories with a British accent, then you've felt the influence of Sir David Attenborough. For nearly 70 years, the channel has been bringing the wonders of nature to audiences via the BBC. His ubiquitous presence on British television and unbridled enthusiasm for whatever he presents has earned him the label of a national treasure in the UK, although Attenborough was quick to self-deprecate when asked how he felt about being called that by BBC One was (per GQ). Attenborough, the middle child in his family, wasn't the only achiever of his generation. According to The Independent, his older brother Richard Attenborough was one of Britain's most accomplished actors and filmmakers and a member of the House of Lords. Younger brother John Attenborough was a car manager. All three brothers served their country in various branches of the armed forces during World War II and remained close ties throughout their lives. At 96, David continues the legacy of his family's contribution to Britain and his own work for nature. He's traveled the world, encountered everything from fireflies to mountain gorillas (see BBC Earth) and changed the face of British public television. According to The Independent, Frederick expected his boys to prove themselves if they wanted to pursue their passions. David was only allowed to sit the Cambridge qualifying exams after winning a scholarship, and his older brother Richard faced a similar requirement before he could pursue acting. "My parents were radicals," Richard once wrote. Despite the difficulties this would pose for the family, the elderly Attenboroughs wanted to adopt the girls, but they left the final decision to their sons. Richard served in the RAF, David in the Navy and youngest brother John in the Army, but all three agreed to welcome Irene and Helga to the family. "We had no hesitation in bringing her into our lives and loving, revering and cherishing her," Richard told the JFS School (via the Jewish Chronicle). From an early age, David Attenborough was fascinated by nature. He lamented to the Daily Mail in 2014 that modern life has cut off so many children from the direct experience of plants and animals he enjoyed and that the pursuit has certainly stifled the spirit of adventure that brought him to the fields around Leicester has - - and beyond. "I doubt many parents would allow their children to do that now," he told the Mail. Fossils weren't the only thing young Attenborough hunted. The latter gave Attenborough his first opportunity to earn a living from his interests in the outdoors. Attenborough offered to supply her at threepence a newt. A defining moment in David Attenborough's life was a lecture he attended in 1936. It was an occasion he and his older brother Richard were later fond of recounting in interviews, although they disagreed on whether Richard actually went along or not (according to The Independent). He deceived everyone from his young admirers, the Attenborough boys, to King George VI about his identity, practiced bigamny and drank heavily (according to the Guardian). The person he offered the world was a lie, but Belaney's passion for conservation was genuine, and his lectures combined powerful warnings about the destruction of the natural world with flashy theatrics. Attending his lecture changed both Attenboroughs forever. Richard wouldn't remember much of the lecture itself, but the presenter's showmanship made a big impression on the young actor, and in 1999 he directed the biopic Gray Owl. David, on the other hand, was deeply moved by Belaney's words in support of the American Beaver. When Richard approached him about Belaney for his film, David called him "one of the first of his kind" by environmentalists. According to his autobiography Life on Air, after serving in the Navy during World War II, David Attenborough first found work – unfortunately – on the editorial board of an educational publishing company. An application for a radio position with the BBC was turned down, but Attenborough was later approached with an offer to take part in the station's training program for television, a medium then in its infancy. By 1952 he was a full-time employee of the BBC. Attenborough's association with the BBC, which continues to this day, was publicly defined by his on-camera displays of plants and animals. After appearing in front of cameras, the same woman who offered Attenborough the place in the training program noticed his teeth were too big. And one of his earliest projects had nothing to do with wildlife, according to Life on Air. After hearing American folk song collector Alan Lomax on the third program, Attenborough created the short-lived "Song Hunter", hosted by Lomax, to promote folk music from the British Isles. He later called his finale, in which Lomax led a procession through the studio oblivious to camera position, the most technically incompetent thing he'd attempted up to that point, but he considered it an important step forward in the revival of the British folk music. David Attenborough's long legacy as a producer and presenter of nature documentaries began in 1954 when he met Jack Lester and Alfred Woods. They were zoologists for London Zoo - Lester was head of the reptile house, according to the Spectator - and they were preparing an expedition to Sierra Leone to collect specimens. Would Attenborough like to come along and make a program of the trip? He agreed and joined the expedition with cinematographer Charles Lagus to produce "Zoo Quest" (according to the BBC). Initially, Attenborough was only intended to be the series' producer. Lester was scheduled to host segments filmed in the studio after the expedition was completed. But according to the Daily Mail, Lester contracted an unknown disease in the tropics, from which he eventually died in 1956. He was too ill to be in front of the cameras, so Attenborough reluctantly became the host of Zoo Quest. As well as contextualizing the footage captured in Sierra Leone, he brought a select number of animals captured during the expedition into the studio for audiences to get a closer look. Zoo Quest continued for nine years with Attenborough as presenter (also according to the BBC), with Lagus continuing to act as cameraman. Attenborough recalled for the Zoo Quest in Color retrospective that the two worked largely unsupervised, choosing their subjects and arranging their own travels - something that would not be true at today's BBC. David Attenborough smiles after being named BBC Two controller As the 1950s drew to a close, David Attenborough felt the 'Zoo Quest' series was beginning to feel dated (according to the Guardian). Another series filmed in Australia and focused on Aboriginal culture inspired him to go back to school. Before he could complete his studies, however, the BBC offered him the position of Controller (Chief Creative Officer) for BBC Two in 1965, the spin-off channel dedicated to programming "of depth and substance" compared to the more popular BBC One (according to the Telegraph). Attenborough's appointment as Controller was met with some skepticism. Relatively young in 1965, he had already made a name for himself for his boyishly enthusiastic camera presence on his nature programs. Some observers felt that he was not up to the task of overseeing the programming of an entire network. In response to his critics of the time, Attenborough pointed out that he was as literate and enthusiastic in television production as he was in natural history. The programming that emerged from Attenborough's tenure as controller silenced critics. Quickly picking up on the government's 1967 decision to make BBC Two the first color television broadcaster, he brought into production such groundbreaking projects as Sir Kenneth Clark's 12-part Civilization to showcase both color and the best of world culture. According to The Guardian, David Attenborough's tenure as BBC Two's controller wasn't just a success - it was a seminal period in television. He championed the "sledgehammer" style of documentaries, audience participation, new sports and experimental programming. "Straight home from the office - switch to BBC Two - look at all my babies." Not every decision Attenborough made as controller, however, showed foresight about the future of television. In 1965, according to Radio Times, Attenborough received a letter from a 27-year-old Irish broadcaster. After finding success on TV and radio in his own country, the young man wanted to venture into the UK and asked about vacancies at BBC Two. Attenborough replied that there were no vacancies and that he would most likely be looking for someone from another part of the British Isles if one turned up, as one of his main announcers was already from Dublin. The young man Attenborough turned down was Terry Wogan, who later became one of Britain's most popular broadcasters through his work with the BBC on radio and his TV chat show 'Wogan'. Attenborough was reminded of the incident by Radio Times (via the Irish Independent) and pleaded ignorance. He wrote and asked me for work? But David Attenborough has longstanding ties to the royal family. He and Queen Elizabeth II are only a few weeks old (per Town and Country Magazine), and he first came into contact with the royals in 1958 when a young Prince Charles and Princess Anne were touring the Lime Grove television studio. Attenborough showed the royal offspring a cockatoo from his latest Zoo Quest series. In 1969 "Royal Family" premiered. The film, a BBC documentary produced before Charles's inauguration as Prince of Wales, was made in collaboration with the royals, particularly Prince Philip, and was designed to help demonstrate the value of the monarchy for contemporary Britain, according to the Independent. Attenborough had no part in the production of Royal Family, but he wrote to its producer Richard Cawston - to warn him that he would do more harm than good. Maybe Attenborough was on to something; 53 years away from the "royal family," Britain's national identity is in deep distress (per National Geographic). But the monarchy is still intact and can still act as a unifier, according to the Guardian. Queen Elizabeth II presents David Attenborough with the Order of Merit If David Attenborough or Queen Elizabeth II had concerns about the impact the documentary "Royal Family" was having on the monarchy after 1969 (according to the Independent), when the media spirit was out of the bottle , they both made their peace with it. The Queen has continued to take part in film and television productions, and Attenborough has been involved in several of them. Attenborough has participated in climate-related ventures led by the Duke of Cambridge, inspired Buckingham Palace to ban plastic straws, and received two knighthoods and the Order of Merit (per Town and Country Magazine). Despite his warm ties to the royal family, Attenborough's association with them didn't go entirely smoothly for the cameras. Between 1986 and 1991 he was responsible for the production of The Queen's Christmas Address. According to Attenborough's autobiography, Life on Air, he was personally approached by Buckingham Palace for the job (and apparently had no way of turning it down). For the 1988 broadcast, Attenborough found himself at odds with the current Queen's dress sense. Attenborough chose a "mushroom" dress instead. "Really," the Queen told him, "there's no way to please you media people." It's hard to imagine a less likely target for environmentalists' wrath than David Attenborough. The man has worked as a producer, writer, or host (per Science Alert) on well over a hundred documentaries, many of which deal with nature. But according to the Guardian, as the climate crisis deepens and the magnitude of humanity's impact on every ecosystem becomes ever clearer, Attenborough's work has been questioned for failing to adequately portray the extent of the damage to viewers - and for failing to do so on our collective guilt speak to. Environmental activist George Monibot was particularly harsh in his Guardian criticism. In response to this criticism, Attenborough has indicated that conservation themes have been present in his work since at least the 1980s. And he's taken a much more active position in recent years (according to another Guardian article). He also believes that despite the urgency of climate change, there is more to nature than its vulnerability. "It would be irresponsible to ignore [climate change]," he said, "but equally I believe we have a responsibility to create programs that address all other aspects and not just this one." According to The Guardian David Attenborough has been slow to shift the focus of his nature documentaries to a more cautious and activist perspective. One area that particularly worries him is the rate at which the human population is increasing. In his estimation, population growth is so rapid that he gave this as a reason not to be optimistic about the future in 2013 (also according to the Guardian). He is a patron of family planning charity Population Matters, one of his documentaries was directly on the subject ("How many people can live on Earth?" to the Telegraph. This focus on population as a driver of environmental degradation has drawn Attenborough some criticism. His views can be perceived by some as blaming poorer nations with high birth rates for overconsumption in the developed world.And there is debate about the extent to which the population plays a part in the fight against climate change.Sarah Kaplan in the Washington Post dismissed the idea that reducing our numbers was necessary to control emissions, and New Statesman reported direct criticism of Attenborough's popular comments on factual grounds Read this next: The British royal family's most bizarre unsolved mysteries

England boss Gareth Southgate sent Harry Kane the task if he wants World Cup glory

England continue their hunt for a major competitive win but Gareth Southgate has been told he must reduce the team's trust in Harry Kane if they want to succeed in Qatar (Author: Gardener)

Gareth SouthgateEngland continue their hunt for a major competitive win but Gareth Southgate has been told he must lower the team's faith in Harry Kane if they are to succeed in Qatar this winter to become world champions. Hat-trick hero of England's 1966 World Cup triumph, Three Lions legend Hurst believes Gareth Southgate's side have what it takes to lift the trophy in Qatar. But he says Southgate players must share goals and not rely too much on captain Kane to put the ball in the net if they are to end the nation's 56-year wait for a major trophy. "In big tournaments like the World Cup, it's an advantage to have multiple players who can score goals," Hurst said. It would be nice if people like Declan Rice, who I spoke to a while ago, could improve his game by scoring a few more goals like Martin Peters did. “Kalvin Phillips scored in one of the games at Wembley recently so I think they need to score more goals – even the centre-backs who score a goal or two. In 1966 we had Roger Hunt and Jimmy Greaves, both great scorers. Jimmy got injured, of course, then I came in and scored goals. “Martin [Peters] had a great goal record, I think it was about a third for England. Alan Ball scored goals and Sir Bobby Charlton, for a midfielder, had an astonishing goal record. "People are talking about Wayne Rooney and Kane breaking his record, but Bobby was a midfielder. He played 106 games and scored 49 goals - one of two at international level. It shows how important it is for many players on the team to score goals. England rely heavily on Harry Kane “I'm a classic example of someone who didn't start at the World Cup and started behind two of the greatest players in English football history, Roger and Jimmy. Jimmy got injured, I came in and of course the rest is history.” Hurst doesn't think England's recent poor results in the Nations League - two defeats by Hungary and draws by Germany and Italy - will have any bearing on his World Cup chances. "I don't take too much notice of a couple of bad results in the Nations League as games are being played as they were," Hurst said. I think Gareth looked at as many players as possible in preparation for the World Cup. Sir Geoff Hurst believes England will have to rely less on Kane's goals Hurst is an ambassador for McDonald's Fun Football initiative, which gives all children aged five to eleven free access to football, regardless of ability or circumstance. “In the next four years, one million children will have access to free football. “With the current cost of living crisis, the ability for parents to take their kids to a free football fun day is a really important thing. McDonald's Fun Football is offering FREE access to football to one million children over the next four years as part of the largest grassroots football program in the UK.

Kate's formal dresses versus Meghan's casual chic

The Duchess of Cambridge and Meghan Markle have supported William and Harry at games - and both have unique styles on the sidelines. (Author: Gardener)

KateThe Duchess of Cambridge beamed as she cheered her husband the Duke to victory on the polo field today - in a display not dissimilar to her sister-in-law Meghan Markle's recent performances in California. Prince William, 40, attended the 2022 Royal Charity Polo Cup at Guards Polo Club in Windsor earlier today while Kate Middleton, 40, smiled on the sidelines. Meanwhile, Prince Harry, 37, who currently resides in his $14 million mansion in California after stepping down from royal duties, was also recently on the field, joining the Los Padres polo team to play at the Pacific Coast Circuit Inter-Circuit Cup. The Duchess of Sussex, 40, has often joined the wives and girlfriends of Harry's teammates to watch the games. Today, the Duchess of Cambridge wore an elegant £1,352 white midi dress with black pipe detailing by her favorite designer, Emilia Wickstead, to mark the occasion. She beamed as she watched the Duke play on the pitch today, before offering him a huge hug and a loving kiss on the cheek. It came in sharp contrast to the Duchess of Sussex's recent appearances as she watched her husband in California. While the game Prince William attended helped raise funds and awareness for charities supported by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry has also taken up playing polo across the pond. For the past two months, he has competed in the Pacific Coast Circuit Inter-Circuit Cup, founded by Nacho Figueras, 45, an Argentine polo pro and model and longtime friend of the Prince. The 37-year-old prince joined Los Padres polo team under the name Harry Wales in May and has spent the last few weeks playing with his team-mates. The royal, adorned in oversized sunglasses, was joined to watch the games by a host of different celebrity friends, including her longtime friend and former co-star Abigail Spencer and Soho House Global Membership Director Markus Anderson. She most often watched alongside Ralph Lauren model Delphine Figueras, whose husband Nacho plays on the same team as Harry. And while the Duchess of Cambridge dressed up for the polo today, the Duchess of Sussex has taken a decidedly more demure approach. Enjoying the California sun, Meghan has often donned baggy shorts and oversized shirts to watch her husband play. However, Meghan doesn't always look casual at polo matches and has also been spotted in a sleek monochrome polka dot outfit while cheering for Harry - not unlike Kate's black and white look today. Appearing at a polo match in May, the Duchess recalled Julia Roberts' classic polka-dot outfit in Pretty Woman, as she donned a floaty white skirt and black shirt with white polka dots. And while both Kate and Meghan enjoyed supporting their husbands at play, the couples tend to express their affection differently. Smiling brightly this afternoon, Kate kissed William on the cheek after the game, before the pair strolled around the grounds with their spaniel, Orla. However, at a polo match in May, Meghan kissed Harry's lips after the game was over in a much more loving display.

Camilla and Prince Charles visit BBC Wales' £120million headquarters

CamillaThe Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall have been bullied as they visit a thriving, award-winning Welsh high street that bucks the national trend of decline. Thousands waited for hours along the length of the former mining town of Treorchy in the Rhondda Valley to catch a glimpse of Prince Charles, 73, and Camilla, 74, while patiently shaking hundreds of outstretched hands, dipping into some of the local shops and even one Pint of beer on tap. Named Great British High Street of the Year in 2020, around 80 per cent of Treorchy stores are independent and locally owned. The couple's first stop during their visit - which marked the first day of their three-day trip to Wales - was Tilly's greeting card and gift shop, run by mother-daughter team June and Louise George. "You're spoiled for choice when it comes to cards," Camilla exclaimed. "I feel like we're holding off a big rush of people coming in. I hope we don't keep them too long," Charles remarked. He asked Ms George if she got her cards from UK suppliers. Lockdown has been tough of course, but people are really coming back to support us.” “Things are going quite well then?” asked the prince. Charles couldn't resist trying a locally brewed Glamorgan beer, Thunder Bird, at 2Dudes, a craft beer shop on the High Street. The owners came up with the idea during lockdown and say Treorchy is doing so well they initially struggled to find both a shop and beer in stock but have not looked back. Charles and Camilla squeezed into their tiny microbar, where the prince joked when asked how his beer was: "It's good! It's beer!' He added: 'I love the occasional Guinness. He also personally stood behind the bar for a pint at The Lion Pub, where he and his wife were greeted by a rousing Welsh choir. He enjoyed his pint of pale ale so much that he contemplated it with him while strolling around and chatting with drinkers. "I can't quite believe he's here and it's been fantastic he's been chatting to everyone for so long," said one. Elsewhere, the royal couple hit the crowds, shaking hands with royal fans - and Camilla even joined in with a high five as she greeted a student. Earlier in the day, Camilla and Charles visited BBC Wales' £100million headquarters in Cardiff. The Duchess of Cornwall told the BBC's Crimewatch team she was an "eager viewer" of the show while touring the company's new Welsh HQ. Camilla said she was captivated by the programme, which appeals to the public to help detectives solve cases, and the Prince of Wales shut down a door to launch public tours of BBC Cymru Wales' Central Square building. During the visit, which kicked off the couple's annual tour of Wales, Charles spoke to weather presenter Derek Brockway and opened up about his frustration at the lack of time dedicated to the climate crisis. "It's about time there was a mention of why it's so critical," the BBC news website reported, as the prince said. Sitting with Crimewatch presenters Rav Wilding and Michelle Ackerley, the Duchess said she was "an avid viewer, I love Crimewatch" and added that she was "amazed" by the number of crimes viewers are providing information about. Questioning the presenters, who were joined by members of the Crimewatch team, she asked, "How on earth do you sort of pick the crimes?" and Wilding replied, "We're fortunate, we have a lot of officers who come to us. 'They never try to threaten you?' asked the Duchess and Wilding said: "I have a few things unfortunately, I've been doing this for 18 years now so it's a long time and I can say the good massively outweighs the bad." Camilla asked when and what time the next series, which is being filmed in Cardiff, would air and when told at 10pm in October she said she would be watching and told the crew: "You guys make life better. " BBC staff began working in the £100million building in Central Square in July 2020. It houses the company's Welsh news edition in Welsh and English, BBC Wales Sport, and is part of a major redevelopment around Cardiff Central Station. While the Duchess was taken on a separate tour of the building, Charles met members of BBC Wales Today and the company's sports team as they prepare for the Wales national team's appearance at the World Cup later that year. The pair were joined by senior BBC executives, including BBC Director-General Tim Davie. Charles joked with Lucy Owen, a presenter of the BBC Wales Today news program, about how the cameras were controlled remotely. The broadcaster said: "They are like Daleks.

Joyce demands that Heard be jailed if perjury has been committed

Australian politician Barnaby Joyce has called for Amber Heard to be jailed if she was perjured during her dog smuggling frenzy in 2015 (Author: Gardener)

JoyceAustralian politician Barnaby Joyce has called for Amber Heard to be jailed if she was perjured during her dog smuggling frenzy in 2015. The 36-year-old actress, who lost a high-profile defamation lawsuit against her ex-husband Johnny Depp last month, is the subject of an ongoing investigation into perjury related to court proceedings stemming from her visit to Queensland with Depp in 2015. She violated the strict Australian quarantine and biosecurity laws by undeclaring the couple's Yorkshire terriers, Pistol and Boo, upon arrival in the country. At the time, then-Secretary of Agriculture Joyce insisted that the dogs would be euthanized if they were not immediately shipped back to the United States. Heard was charged with two counts of illegally importing the animals in July 2015; However, the case was closed when she pleaded guilty to forging travel documents in April 2016 in a Gold Coast court. But the dog smuggling saga was given new life in October 2021 when DailyMail.com exclusively revealed that Australian officials were investigating Heard on alleged perjury charges over claims she lied to authorities about the circumstances under which her dogs were brought into the country . Australia's Department for Agriculture, Water and Environment confirmed last week that the case was "pending" and told Daily Mail Australia that there were still "perjury inquiries into Ms Heard during the court proceedings over the illegal importation of [her] two dogs in 2015 'study Australia'. Joyce had little sympathy for Heard when she spoke about the alleged perjury probe on the Australian breakfast show Sunrise on Thursday. “When these dogs came in, there were a lot of signed documents saying there were no animals there. And it now appears that Ms Heard was allegedly not telling the truth," he said. Joyce joked that Australia was entitled to extradite Heard because the US is seeking extradition of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, an Australian citizen, on espionage charges from England. [She] can come to Australia and possibly spend some time at Her Majesty's convenience," Joyce said. When asked what would likely happen to Heard if she was found guilty of perjury, Joyce replied, "It's up to the Americans. S. wants to show the purity of it and they insist on getting Julian Assange. It's unlikely the Australian government would try to extradite Heard, but she could still face arrest if she tried to enter the country again. Joyce later joked he would look after Heard's dog, who she famously named after him after adopting the animal in December, when she was jailed in Australia. When asked what he thought of the Depp-Heard defamation trial in Virginia, Joyce replied, "It was great... In the meantime, Australian authorities may seek the FBI's assistance while they investigate allegations that Heard had allegedly been dating for six years." committed perjury in a Queensland court. Bobby Chacon, a former FBI special agent, told Law & Crime on Monday that it is common for Australian investigators to work with their American counterparts and that such cooperation would be likely in this case because the relevant witnesses all "live abroad." “. Mr Chacon said: “The FBI maintains an office in Canberra and there are FBI agents who are deployed to Australia on a permanent basis [rotating]. S., they would certainly contact the Australia office of the FBI, and the FBI would likely help.” The department's perjury investigation stems from the testimony of a former Depp's employee during his UK defamation trial against The Sun newspaper in 2020 Eid after she flew the pets to Queensland on a private jet without declaring them. Pistol and Boo should have been declared to customs and placed in a 10-day quarantine, but their arrival went undetected for several weeks, until a grooming salon posted snaps of the snuggling couple on Facebook. Depp and Heard had 72 hours to send the dogs home or they would have to be confiscated and euthanized. Heard eventually pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of forging an immigration document and accepted a fine of AU$10,000 (US$7,650) after her lawyer, Jeremy Kirk, insisted the paperwork for the dogs "slipped through the cracks" and it " made no attempt 'to deceive'. Kirk said Heard thought her then-husband's staff had done the paperwork and was exhausted and sleep-deprived when she checked the wrong box on her arrival card. Heard and Depp also issued a video statement in which they expressed their remorse for their actions. Heard's version of events went unchallenged until July 2020, when Depp's former executor told London's High Court in a written statement that he had repeatedly warned the actress about Australia's strict animal entry requirements. "I have also explained to Ms. Heard on several occasions that attempting to bring the dogs into Australia without completing the mandatory procedure is illegal and could result in very harsh penalties, including having the dogs euthanized," Murphy said. He further claimed that when the smuggling controversy erupted, Heard required him to make a "false testimony" to the Australian court, saying she knew nothing of the requirements. "When I expressed that I was extremely uncomfortable with this, Ms. Heard said to me, 'Well, I'd like your help with that... I don't want you to have a problem with your job.'" It became very obvious that Ms. Heard threatened my job stability if I did not cooperate and make a statement supporting her misrepresentation for the Australian case." "Because of that, I felt extremely pressured to cooperate, even though I knew it would be untrue," added Murphy, who worked for Depp for eight years. Murphy later confirmed to DailyMail.com that he had been contacted by the FBI and agreed to provide testimony to Australian authorities. News of Heard's ongoing perjury trial comes just weeks after she was ordered to pay her ex-husband $10.35 million in damages after a Virginia court found she had defamed the actor by posing in wrote in an opinion piece as a domestic violence survivor. Depp sued Heard, to whom he was married from 2015 to 2017, over a December 2018 article she wrote for the Washington Post in which she described herself as "a public figure who advocates domestic violence." The jury found in Depp's favor on all three allegations related to specific statements in the play.
