Honestly, the only thing I would like to see is her trying out some color when she wears non-Bhutanese outfits.

My Dutch is rusty, so I thought maybe others' could be too.  The caption to the above Maxima post:

Queen Máxima pays a working visit to a supermarket and a waste company in Nijmegen, in the context of the impact of the corona pandemic on vital sectors. In Nijmegen-Fenikshof, Queen Máxima visits the Jumbo supermarket, where she talks to fillers, cashiers and employees of the fresh department about how they have experienced their work in recent times. ⠀ ⠀ Queen Máxima then visits waste company Dar, where she is given a tour of the environmental street. She speaks with employees of waste collection, cleaning and green management about how they deal with the increased volumes of waste from private individuals and the workload. In conclusion, Queen Máxima also speaks with other vital professional groups such as industrial cleaners and parcel deliverers about changes in their work during the corona pandemic. ⠀ Through telephone calls and, if possible, working visits, King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima inform themselves about the consequences of the corona outbreak and express their support and appreciation for the efforts of so many in the fight against the pandemic. Measures are taken in consultation with the organizations involved to allow the working visits to take place

Neither of the men are very attractive, Kate is lovely, but Jetsun is a knockout. Wow.

Five minutes on IMDB says that they have a good Meghan lookalike, and a good Harry lookalike, but they aren't in the same movie. So there's potential.

However, there's also a Will & Kate movie with Victor Garber as Charles? I realise I only know him from Alias, where he played the most uptight and humourless character I've ever seen. But I really don't see it. Also, he's got a broader frame and more hair.

That was Hallmark's William and Kate movie, which aired after the wedding and had a higher budget than the better-known Lifetime version. Jean Smart was Camilla and I remember the Queen playing Wii at some point. Here are a couple of teasers:

 

 

And here's the Lifetime movie trailer:

The tentative title of the upcoming Lifetime movie is Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace. It cracks me up that there's going to be a whole Harry and Meghan trilogy!

Those movies make the old soap Passions look like high art.

I sincerely hope there is at least one scene of Hars and Megs actually running out of a palace. 

In much more attractive royal news, more adorable Estelle and Oscar.

I so want Oscar and Charlotte to be besties at some school. 

Here is some hot Carl Philip and Sofia. I’m catching some idea of a Swedish national day with flag raising, but my translate isn’t working right.

This is a total Swedish charm attack.

They made two?? Really? Of course I believe you but what was the second one about?

Because I’m an adult I used all powerful google, it’s about Their first year of marriage .

lol, sorry. 

Here's an edited version of the video from The Telegraph, for those who don't want to have to click the link. 

 

"I wasn’t sure what I could say to you. I wanted to say the right thing, and I was realIy nervous that I wouldn’t or that it would get picked apart, and I realized the only wrong thing to say is to say nothing, because George Floyd’s life mattered, and Breonna Taylor’s life mattered, and Philando Castile’s life mattered, and Tamir Rice’s life mattered, and so did so many other people whose names we know and whose names we do not know. Stephon Clarke, his life mattered."

 

The fact Meghan didn’t want to voice her opinion because she knew her words would be picked apart by certain people but she marched on because she couldn’t remain silent. #BlackLivesMatter

Federal prosecutors have officially asked to talk to Prince Andrew regarding Jeffrey Epstein

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nbcnews.com/news/amp/ncna1227146

I think Queen Elizabeth is going to be VERY happy when this year is over.

Didn't he say he would fully cooperate in any investigation?   guess its time to see if he meant it.

She thought 1992 was bad with both Andrew and Charles announcing their divorces and Windsor Castle catching fire.

At the time he said it, prosecutors here in the US called him out and said he had been uncooperative at every turn.  It would be great if somehow British authorities are able to get him to cooperate, but I bet he won't.

According to the news, he would not be under oath in any interview; and, given his penchant for being less than truthful, I don't think the authorities actually expect to get any useful info out of him.  This is a guy who claimed he didn't know a woman after photos surfaced of him with his arm around her.

Based on how poorly he did in the TV interview that ended his days as a working royal, I am sure Andrew's attorneys are concerned that he will be just as terrible when talking to the feds and heaven knows what might happen then.  Andrew has proven himself to be completely clueless as to how he comes across in interviews and dumb, too.

He's now claiming he's offered his assistance 3 times. I don't believe him at all.

https://www.cnn.com/2020/06/08/uk/prince-andrew-us-doj-epstein-investigation-gbr-intl/index.html

I presume what Andrew offered was to answer questions only if granted blanket immunity from prosecution.  He might've even demanded that the DA's office issue a statement clearing him of all wrongdoing and claiming his innocence of all possible charges in return.  He probably wanted all questions, in advance, in writing and probably wanted to give written responses to them with the assistance of his legal team.  He might've even demanded to pick and choose which questions to answer or to give them a written statement and not answer any questions at all.  I think the 'assistance' Andrew offered was minimal and came at a very steep price; so steep the prosecutors weren't interested.

If Andrew has really been so incredibly cooperative and forthcoming, why did he say in his TV interview that he hadn't spoken to authorities and that he would need to consult with a lot of legal experts and then only do so if they felt there was no other way?  That doesn't sound like a cooperative witness to me.

The main issue seems to me that one of the parties in this dispute has very good reason to lie, the other doesn't.  Why would the prosecutors be repeatedly saying he offered 'zero cooperation' and file an official request for an interview if Andrew was so willing to help?

Trade Prince Andrew for the American woman that killed the kid when she drove on the wrong side of the road. I’m disgusted she’s getting away with that.  It may be an accident/mistake, but those parents will never get their kid back.  I’d totally be extraditing her butt. I don’t agree with diplomats getting away with crimes. Whether it’s foreigners doing it here, or Americans doing it in other countries.

Not quite the dashing young naval officer that she fell for 80 years ago. 
I do hope he makes it until this pandemic is over. It would be so sad if, after all those years, he got a funeral with the Queen and a few others. (Yes, I know he’s a jerk and probably a racist, but he was also one of the hardest working Royals out there.)

I’m not putting anyone in the grave but we all die eventually. If he were to die soon, I’m sure they would do a full state memorial as soon as it was possible. At least he and HM can spend time together during all this.

I've said it before, but I do not understand why he was thought of as so handsome. I don't think he was good looking at all, the way he looks now is exactly what I would expect him to look like based on how he looked then.

In uniform and younger looking Philip was HOT.    Now, well, he is 99.    At least they are still active.   Philip might be retired but he is still doing things just on his own schedule.  The Queen looks positively radiant.   

May they both remain with us a good while yet.

Count me as someone who never thought Phillip was hot. He had clear skin and a nice bearing, but not...hot. But I think many royals get judged on a different scale. 

Someone who does not need judged on the sliding scale of royals, is Princess Madeleine of Sweden. She's stunning. Those eyes. Happy birthday.

About the time of Her Majesty's 90th Birthday, Prince Charles showed some of his parents' home movies from the early part of their marriage with various royals commenting. At one point, Prince Phillip c. age 30 was in sunglasses and both the Duke of Cambridge and Duke of Sussex commented how much of a 'stud' their grandfather was at that point (something I seriously doubt the Prince of Wales got the same candid reactions when HE was that age). 

In any case,not only was it his rugged Viking physique that attracted the Heiress Presumptive of Great Britain but since he'd been essentially on his own since he was about ten  who would candidly admit he had no home at the time AND not a wit daunted by the experience, it's likely she thought it was refreshing to have someone around who was irreverent and irrepressible in contrast to countless courtiers, relatives, etc. who fawned nonstop- yet determined to keep things 'as was' while her husband was a hands-on innovator! 

 

Yes, I think Her Majesty feels relieved that she CAN get to spend more time with him than she would have otherwise via this affliction.

True, he's definitely seen better days but he's sure seen a LOT of them (and may be hoping to get that Special Telegram this time next year). From the latest photo, it appears at best the Duke of Edinburgh's annoyed at having to take yet another [blanking] picture and at worst seems confused about what's going on if not who he is.  Yes, I am well aware of his faults but it's still sad to see things come to this for this onetime dashing character who'd been so dynamic and vital for so many decades. 

Happy (belated) Birthday, Your Highness

To each their own, but I thought younger Philip was hot and, still, at 99 I am not surprised he looks like Mongomery Burns--who is not hot. Also, the more I learn about young, middle-aged, and old Phil makes all incarnatuons of him not so hot.

On the hot vs. not-hot thing, I'm in the "Philip was hot" camp. IMO like most people, he's a complex mixture of strengths and weaknesses, and I don't think he's a waste of space. At 99 he looks rather cadaverous, but then, on my 99th birthday I will no doubt have long been a cadaver, so there's that.
