"royal" Discussed on On Heir - Royal News & Interviews
"At decision that i would say has been controversial. When you look at sort of divided opinion over this issue Now harry of course served in the army for ten years. He rose to the rank of captain. He undertook two tours of duty in afghanistan. He has dedicated the rest of his life to serving the military community and wounded veterans. The invictus games invictus foundation. This is a huge part of his life and so to see him to gnaw he'd the owner of having this wreath placed in his name. I think it was hard news for many. I certainly was uncomfortable with just sort of even reading the story. I felt very excited for this moment. I think that is a really good point. I think that you know all the things that harry has done with the military community sort of make this just a bigger moment because in theory they are no longer working members of the royal family and this was sort of working royal event and people laid wreaths only if they were there in a position of authority which harry has given up. He's no longer working member of the royal family. So again in theory when you look at it that way it sort of makes sense of someone says while you're no longer working member of the royal family. You're not going to partake in this thing. That only working members of the royal family partaken. That'll make sense. But then at the emotion to it the fact that it was an event that honors fallen soldiers and honors people that lost their lives in the military and their families in the fact that harrison so much to help veterans Is a veteran himself. I mean it just has a lot of ads this emotion to it that even if rational you understand the decision just the emotion behind it. A somewhat heartbreaking absolutely and let's separate that. Let's talk about rationally because of course as you say his no longer working member of the royal family. He was very publicly stripped of his Royal his military honors A wacky member of the royal family Only six months ago to this day actually and but when we look at the purpose of these reese during the ceremony we have to that these on personal wreaths late by members of the royal family each one symbolizes represents a different section of the armed forces. So william lays one for the royal air force princess. Anne lays one for the for the royal navy Prince harry if he was here as working the would have laid his wreath on behalf of the royal marines and the queen's represents the nation. So they're they're on a personal wreaths in this situation. However off wreaths are laid by senior members of the royal family and the prime minister there are other wreaths laid on behalf of turnkey and organizations that support the military and veteran communities. Now harry is someone that is very much as part of that. I'm not sure how that couldn't have been some source of compromise may need to accommodate Really one of the most prominent royal war veterans of our time. And it's a decision that i find quite hard to understand obviously understand and respect protocol but i also think that there are times where you can bend the rules that little bit to be decent And so yeah. It's it's been interesting. I think what was really special about this was seeing. Just how many people within the armed forces veterans and current working personnel. Who spoke the harry There were so many messages of support people that stood firmly in his corner. One tweet here The name just in case at once to be but it said he lost his mother as boy said this country proudly and had a huge impact on the lives of many wounded veterans and their families around the world. He's now working at being a dad and a husband away from the u. k. for what it matters. I'm family in his corner. Go well and i. I agree with that and i think that he would have been very touched to see that level of support but not a great and i think what was more surprising than the story itself was the fact that whoever Within the institution of the monarchy felt like at decided to give that information that this wreath had been denied to one of the most read british newspapers which again just sort of puts out this very personal information for public consumption and takes away from what should have been a monument that only focuses on wolf veterans. I didn't think people would have been asking where was harry's wreath if the subject of come up in on the pages of the sunday times such a good point i mean it's one thing to follow protocols. Another to of maliciously bring up rumors or or stir controversy especially when it's around something like remembrance day it kind of mind boggling thought said. Did you conduct your slicks. Did find ver very special way of commemorating remembrance sunday within california Beautiful satisfy ties. We'll be talking about those Just off to the break and all say finding out what else. Harry is doing to raise money and support the military community. Staying informed has never been more important. Information is coming at us faster than ever. So how do you.
"royal" Discussed on On Heir - Royal News & Interviews
"The next three years g to the pandemic, which is a huge loss when you think of how much money it costs to put on royal tours and so on. It's kind of you don't often think of that I think we all know that across the board people are taking an economic right now, some more severely than others. But I never would have necessarily thought to include the Royal Family in the stories of the economy right now. But you're right especially with tourism I think many people normally would take tours of the palaces or you know show up from all around the world just to see Buckingham Palace and that's just not happening anymore. So in in some ways, you know obviously, it affects them much differently because they're quite well off but the royal family's finances are also taking a hit. Absolutely, well, of course, the Queen as she has continues to receive the same hundred and ten million dollars from the suffering grounds, and that will continue next year despite the loss in prophets, the British government will actually top-up. Any losses to ensure that she receives she and the family received the same amount and that money goes to goes towards official duties and the ongoing refurbishment of Buckingham Palace which is coming up to close to I think half a billion dollars in costs. But so this public allowance, what is the sovereign grants hit many people are asking have questioned it myself many times in the. One of those people asking omit explain this to me. It's made up of profits in the crown estate, which is the Prophecy Empire Ed. The Queen doesn't technically own, but sort of belongs to the royal family. A percentage of those profits goes back to the royal family. The rest goes to the government and the taxpayer also contributes to that, and that is how we find that some of eighty six point, three, million pounds or one, hundred, ten, million dollars that the cream gets and the queen typically supplements the sovereign ground with income from the collection trust and the Royal Collection Trust looks after the occupied palaces in the UK and. is in charge for the tourism that comes with that. Unfortunately, the CT has had quite difficult as many have g to the pandemic in the world of tourism and many redundancies have already taken place within that sort of Department of the Royal Household. But the royal family do say that they are not going to ask for extra funding and looking at their own ways to manage the impact through their own efforts and efficiency. So that's a real sort of perse tightening. At the end of the Buckingham Palace which I think is exactly what the nation needs to hear right now because really bad if they were asking for more exactly there is nothing more controversial. I think than talk about how much family cost and we'll get into some of those shortly because there are few I raising additions to. See is accounts, but of course, this essentially does keep the monarchy moving. It's how they carry out. Then number of engagements they do every year think it was three thousand, two hundred engagements that took place in the UK and abroad in the last financial year, and there are costs that are going to come with that and quite rightly. So but at the same time, there are many costs which I think has left some scratching their heads. This is what's fascinating open. We started to see some news reports coming out in the you tons of reporting on this when you dig into the financials and start looking at the stories that they hide I mean they're incredible. Absolutely I think the one that has really. Probably. Caused much of the compensation today walls the revelation that Prince Andrew chartered a twenty thousand dollar flights to Northern Ireland for the open. Golf. Championship. This was to watch one day of Golfing, from September twenty nineteen, and of course this. Place two months before he is forced to stand down from his royal duties. But controversially, after the FBI had started to request the to cooperate with their investigation on his friend Jeffrey. Epstein. Now, palace sauce refused to be drawn into a deep discussion about this, but did say that this was the only way they could have got Andrew to the golf club for the one day engagement and that he was a patron of that golf club at the time that the question I guess to be on asked is it goes back to the conversations that we already have about Prince Andrew was the support that he did receive up until the public puts the pressure on for him to step down from his royal duties often that disastrous news night's interview about his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein. We had a trip to Rome for Princess and costing again twenty thousand dollars to charter. A private jet says she could watch a rugby match. Now, this is despite dozens of commercial flights being available. So I think there are some things here that people have very much a right to ask whether these were actually necessary spends at a time when we really are thinking about our own finances and the partic- taxpayer more so than anyone. It's it's well within their reasons to to to ask such a question. We make a good point I think there's probably always a lot of head scratching when this report comes out because he I I'm sure every year there's what seemed like outlandish expenses that pop up but this year in particular when you do have so many people that are struggling just to make ends meet and make next month's rent, and then all of a sudden they find out their taxpayer money is going to send someone to a rugby match. I mean that's going to cost some questions and then on top of that, you find out you know who that person is if you're talking about sending. Prince Andrew Somewhere, and after all of the allegations that he has been thrown thrown his way after all the controversy that surrounded him. The fact that you know he's been called out by the Royal Family I. It seems kind of ridiculous. They still being able to spend so much money that tax payers are giving absolutely. Now, of course, a lot of the travel member of the royal family does really is for fantastic cause not only does it highlight many chasuble organizations and initiatives, but it also puts the UK on a very important world stage and we need to look at say the success of William in. Five Day trip to Pakistan on. The counts do reveal, but that was almost one hundred and fifty thousand dollars and travel. But when you look at the press that came with that one can argue that it was money well spent equally for the. Sussex is there fourteen flight tour of southern Africa which took place over ten days? was actually the most expensive royal trip last year costing three, hundred and twelve. Thousand Dollars in travel expenses. But again, you have to remember that this trip wasn't just for the Sussex is to promote their own work. It was also on the request of the British Foreign Office just weeks really before number of African nations signed a post brexit trade deal with the UK. So there's always this sort of soft politics that comes with trips like this and. Whilst the royals are technically picking up the costs much of the time. These trips do come at the request of the British government themselves. So here's a question for you even help you. I'm the American in the group clearly. So sometimes, it's difficult for me to understand these types of things. So what a way to compare it to the states would be similar to Almost, a politician going on a trip at the request of the government, and in the same way, the royals are going on a trip at the request of the Foreign Office and in both cases, the taxpayer would pay for those trips because in theory they're supposed to be for the greater good of the country absolutely and I think that's why there is always this question I've. Walked was necessary and what was then I think when you talk about a trip to Pakistan for the Cambridge's or Southern Africa for the Sussex is one can see the importance and the impact that comes with trips like that. You know one of the reasons that the Sussex says we're on that southern Africa tour all the reason that Harry was Angola was not only need to sort of continue to the work on landmines, his mother it started but also, and there is this sort of soft encouragement Franco lower to return or join the Commonwealth which again is another one of these sort of..

Absolutely kind of reminded me of when we had a one of those first pictures of Archie from the Sussex is. His little. Foot, you've got to imagine how much pressure and planning goes into a baby announcement these days on Instagram for member of the Royal Family, it's not your typical and we just post a photo of my bump and call it a day. I'm sure that a lot of people analyzing what it was gonNA look like exactly I am still waiting today that we have offers royal tiktok accounts. It's got to happen at some. Hope. It's the clean. Listen if usually is listening, that is the place to do a gender reveal I'm old. I would watch that I would definitely want that Maggie before we move on got to ask how you're doing because you've been out and about this week. Including on a cruise which me To do right now. I know I was on a cruise ship this week, which seems like another world. Knew when I first got that assignment Oh man I think I called you and was I am terrified to go on this cruise right now. Because we cover so many virus outbreaks on ships and you know I covered them in the beginning of this pandemic whether it was diamond princess of some of the other cruise ships that got stranded at sea. So I was terrified but I have to tell you that it kind of blew me away the organization of this ship because I think when you call ask me about it you're like, I couldn't even recognize where you were I mean everyone there looked like they were kind of having a regular cruise but then when you look closer You see all the safety precautions. So you know every single person that had to get tested before they went on board everyone was wearing masks everyone was social distancing. They took it really really seriously all the safety precautions. So my favorite visual image describe as like it was still cruise. So there were people each poolside in their bikinis doing this dance class that was being organized by the cruise company, but they were doing it all in their masks socially distance as well. So that doesn't sum up like cruising in two, thousand, twenty I'm not sure what does. And of course, they took off from Port in Italy, and so they go around the world. So right now, it only goes through Italy. So it's a seven night cruise at starts Genoa ends in Genoa. We got off after two days in Naples but what's really you know kind of an interesting about that as you think about Italy, they were hit so hard the country in Europe that was really hit hard by this pandemic at first, and so the fact that their country that's doing so well, right now and launching cruise. It's unthinkable. Absolutely I mean. It's great to see the tourism business sort of finding again in these times of course, we here in the UK as sort of heading what looks like back into a sort of second wave of swords. But that is a ray of hope I think to see things returning to normal. But of course. I think for many we are reflecting on the impact, of Covid, nineteen and I think that couldn't have been more clear this week when we had the news of the sovereign grant report from Buckingham Palace this is the annual sort of financial report. It's a look at the accounts of older public spending made by the Royal Family in the last financial year that goes up to thirty first this year, and whilst we were looking back on the figures this brief to press a day before the information was revealed. In the papers across news organizations around the world today but the focus really was on the impact of the corona virus on the pursual family, because of course, alongside the sovereign Crohn's which I'll get into in a little bit. The money that the royal family spend on their professional endeavors that charitable work, the travel that goes into that,.

"To support them and their works and I would say it's fair to say it's been the one thing that's really hung over their heads since stepping back from the royal family, the couple cells that they wanted to repay for renovation costs as they separated from the suffering grant to take on that financial independence. But what was initially thought to be a repayment plan. So Harry very recently paid the entire off long ago I liked that energy. Like anof. That's a mic drop. Exactly how important was that you think to just sort of be done with it now to just say listen is that any type of installment plan over the next ten years with is going to constantly be a story just want to get this off my plate I don't want to have this hanging over me anymore. Know it's only been five months say officially stepped back and most husband. May. Yes but that the announcement that they wanted to repay, the costs was completely voluntary. There was no request from the royal family or the Crown Estates. There's no require meant either they have to repay it or. And in fact, when we look other members of the Royal Family, they have all forwarded that same privilege of their working residents to be covered with at least the renovation costs to be covered by sovereign crown. Now, the sovereign grunt is sort of a mix of government funding money raised from the crown estate is the sort of working estate of all royal residences. Of course, many of them are in the public. It's very recently that they announced that they'd be doing out those cinema on the Sandringham Estate. I WANNA go by the way. Yeah, okay, we'll talk about later. And of course, the British taxpayer also contributes to that equates to about two dollars per participant. Zain yet. And this is of course, something that's always open for debate and discussion much-needed. Of course, it questions the relevancy of the monarchy and how much they cost us what we benefit from as a nation. We get from that in return of course, Harry and Meghan stepping back. So soon after that public purse was used to pay for the home opened up the discussion of whether it was actually worth it and I think both of them very keen to stop that in its tracks announced plans to repay, but there was never really any specific details given. Now, of course, very recently, they signed a landmark net deal for five years believed to be about five years. To produce scripted shows, documentaries, docu series, children's animation you name it it's pretty spectacular. But of course, this also gives them that financial independence they wanted they said that they would get an five months time isn't an incredible achievement and I think for them. That desire to truly break away from the things that people have criticized them full. All are at the center of debates. This is being I think a moment while I know, it's been a moment that has been huge one of relief them. In fact, a source close to Harry said that he was very keen to move on from this and it was a huge weight officeholders when that repayment was made. It is the timing. Any coincidence I mean is it obvious that the Netflix deal came through and that's kind of where the money came from to pay this off or do you think that just happened to be all kind of in the few weeks that these two big money deal to happen. There's probably more to it than I think anyone would ever think. There is probably I'm sure there's an accountant has. Tax Costs for that year or is it wise to do it this year or next you know I'm sure there's all. On all manner dealing with millions, it's more than just a split second decision I'm this was a couple that were both while off. It's fair to say before any sorts of Netflix deal this deal has given them his financial security for the future you know, of course, has always been this compensation about Prince, Charles, Hayes offer to support them financially using money from the Duchy of Cornwall. Moving forward because, of course, Harry and Meghan paying their own security costs and you know that's huge some every year. But I think again, the couple of being very keen to establish themselves as independent, and in fact, sources confirmed ABC News this week that they are officially. Cutoff. Voluntarily from Prince Charles's purse and fats whilst there was talk about him contributing to the cost of their home. That's not true. They paid for it themselves. They have mortgage like most of us and a little bit higher. That more than most of us yes. Yes. It's still a mortgage. I think again, this just shows how keen they are. To truly be independent because I think when you have. A I don't WanNA use the word debt because they don't necessarily do that that money for folk more. But when you have things like that looming or of your head, it's an excuse for for other things to be used against you and you know there are an probation period with the royal family at the moment in terms of stepping away that lasts until next March and I think that for them rather than leaving the door open until then they've want to use this time to prove that it can stay shots. That's interesting. So, declare fi too I think you know as an American I'm not as informed about how sort of the royal workings work when it comes to. Getting paid if if you. You it you just kind of went through some of it, but it's interesting. So someone like. William Kate's who are still working royals where how do they get paid? Then what are they exactly paid for I mean what are the expectations if you are paid from the public well is working member of the Royal Family your a professional activities covid by the sovereign grants and on top of that the home that you live in the. Current working residences, which is Kensington Palace in London, an animal whole and anything outside of that wouldn't be covered. But if there are renovation works for quiet say on the driveway leading up to one a their apartment at Kensington Palace that would be covered by the sovereign grinds, and it's of course, all of these accounts made known every year through the sort of annual reports and always debate over how much is being spent how much travel for foreign trip cost or Was it wise to use a plane instead of a train to get somewhere I think these will always be the half to be transparent with that money spent, and if a working member of the Royal Family, your work should speak for itself and as the valid argument that the money needs to be spent. Now, of course, what doesn't get revealed? How much is spent on Royal Security? So someone like Prince Andrew, who is no longer where he member of the Royal Family still receives a large amount of money really security and Or sort of shown. Financial reports for security reasons legitimately I. Think if you were to discuss how much we're spending on security that is sensitive information that could compromise their safety should the figure may not be as high as one thinks so on but it is certainly interesting that someone like Prince Andrew who obviously. Is shrouded by a lot of controversies right now to say the least. Is having a security paid for and doesn't seem to necessarily rock the Royal Family But there's a lot of controversy around framework cottage getting back doesn't quite seem to add up exactly. Well, he lives on the Royal Lodge also on the Windsor estates and that was. Given to him after the Queen Mother passed away in two, thousand and two. It's a great to listed building, but obviously requires constant. Renovations and that would. Must probably the pain of the process taxpayer come from the public purse? That is you understand why people care so much now that I'm a British taxpayer myself. You understand all of a sudden and you're like, hold a minute. My salary is going towards these renovations. So you kind of want to know what's getting renovated and who is bent getting benefited by these renovations as well. I mean to know that your money is paying for a driveway that may need to get redone or Prince Andrew's new kitchen. No you can see why people really.

"Am. I. See Omid right now everyone visit a game changer. This is also a great sign that we as just a planet. I like slowly moving back to tempting to anyway. Yeah. Some kind of normality. In the office, we are six feet apart but. We are at least in the office together for this podcast today. Exact. Good to see you and I think quite apps because this week's episode, we're really looking at royals back work after. We've got the first overseas visit for Prince William or for any member of the Royal Family, and of course, we saw Camilla back in action. With? Itching. Back into. And of course, we'll be looking into the success. Of course, they made headlines once again, this week with the repayments of the renovation works for Franck more cottage came in very handy after that flicks deal. Putting the money to use. But are we really started with the queen heading back to Sandringham? This was slightly unexpected news because of course, she had been up in bowel moral for the summer and I think people expected her to return to Windsor Castle and the news from Buckingham Palace. She's returned to wood farm on the sanding mistake which for anyone that doesn't know about what farm it's a very modest cottage were talking five bedrooms a kitchen that was only just recently renovated good. No one ever used it. But of course, it's where Prince Philip has spent a lot of his retirement time since stepping back from his public duties and so it's quite cozy space for the two of them but it's where that there will be based at least between now and. The full Buckingham. Palace. Confirmed that the queen will be returning to Buckingham Palace for events this fall despite the ongoing pandemic but say that things will be kept under review and of course, be subject to all relevant guidance and advice that'd be tough to be planning right now I mean it's tough just for us normal humans to be planning. But imagining you're the queen, you already have some security you're dealing with these events that take months to plan, and now here in the UK, the government has changed his guidance on the number of people that can be together in a group. I'm so trying to plan events on top of all of this it's it's quite a challenge. This move back to the Sandringham estates it's not usually something that the palace would put out a press release for but the information was shared with all the royal correspondence and I think there's something spe- sort of seen in that in the fact that for this nation who obviously went into lockdown with the queen sort of ahead of that, she gave that public address to everyone. Breaking the normal it's because we don't usually see her speaking outside of the Christmas speeches and other times, and I think that ability to unify a nation a time just so important and so it's just as important to also show the nation that she is sort of moving back to normality of sources of course, with the confirmation that she will be taking engagements on at Buckingham Palace she will still operate in shielded bubble of sorts, and this is a very small group of staff. That have access to her and working with her, but it's much more than usual and I'm sure it's been an interesting time for all of them but being would farm very different to being any of the bigger homes I was just thinking that was much as I. Love hearing about the Queen coming to some of these new engagements hopefully soon and actually making some moves. My other reaction is taken care. Of this woman, please surround her put her in a bubble. You know I think is a great sign that we're trying to figure out how to keep living and hopefully keep numbers low enough of infections that we can all get back to work at some point, and so the Queen is really stepping up to show people how to do it but I'm also like just take care of yourself please ma'am. Forget your important, and you're quite old at this point and so let's just like protect her. She is a global treasure. Yeah. And the same goes for prints. By the power arrangements for him in October still under discussion, and there's no word on what engagements and audiences even the queen will attend in person. But at least she'll be sort of present Buckingham pilots which I think to have that flag. In. London. Means a lot for the country and for the capital because of course, it shows things moving back to normal for a family that are so driven by optics I'm sure every thought goes into making these moves. That's a good point I remember the very beginning of lockdown when we first started chatting for the first time, you know on phones instead of in the office like we are. Now we kept saying when we start to see the royals out and about. Again, that'll be a major sign that we're trying to figure out how to live and how to work through this virus and how to move forward as a country, and so all the sudden. Now, we are kind of seeing them out in about obviously in a limited capacity with a ton of precautions and staying safe, and hopefully, they can use their platform as an example for the rest of the country you know how to do it safely. It been great to see them. Know sheltering if they have to shelter or wearing the proper fe shields and face masks and traveling only appropriately. So it's good to see them sort of leading. By example, if they're gonNA go work, do it in a proper and safe way acknowledging the people who've made it safe this week walls emergency services week, and that was particularly celebrated on September the ninth and we saw Prince William Five to Belfast Major. This was an Iot she didn't. It somehow didn't occur to me. A big. Until the day off when I made license this first time that we have member of the Royal Family. Traveling overseas flying. On an airplane. Yeah, and he just puts us back to similar pace to where we were before, and of course, this was particularly important not just because it was emergency services day. But also because Prince William himself is also from that community he was the first responder he flew for the East Anglian ambulance service, and so it was apt that he was the man that flew over to do that engagements and we saw him speaking with first responders in Belfast and also addressing the police training college also in Northern Ireland. So a good day for him and we also heard him thank those who've been on the frontline during this pandemic keeping nation going and people say. People. Of course QC. Off of need. So as soon as we'd should we Evian when you need it most? Mrs Julia Roberts in place each and every day. I don't know I. Mean routine subs. There's are you on the front line come face immense challenges that can naturally on a significant impact. Both, your physical Andrew Health. Giving mobiles. To. It is kind of amazing as I of chatting about this, and it's a landmark visit Ed because he was the first royal to get airplane in to show people what that future could be like. Did. You ever think say a year ago that we would be making such a big deal out of a trip to Belfast, I mean these are people that go all over the world you've been to Austrailia with them and Africa the Middle East and you know everywhere and going to Belfast seems like Revolutionary Right now I went I've gotten so used to just. Spending, my time in my neighborhood and I went to East London this weekend and then you would have thought I was going to a different country..

"I think it really gave us paps. Biggest INSI- into the dynamics of the Sussex is and the royal family and how that's being for the last couple of years probably our biggest insight. I just listening to that recap seriously talking about though the moment where it's announced that Harry finally found his teammate. And has this New York ner and then driving it home to how emotional saying goodbye to the staff that they've really grown up with together as a couple and this is a lot to handle right now. Yeah I would say it's definitely been a week and it's been like a month in a week shape form. Okay I'm GonNa ask you this too. I might be slight speculation from us. I'm just GONNA ask for. This was the moment that I think. A lot of people saw From the Commonwealth ceremony. And if you didn't see it appeared as if first off I will say Both everyone looked gorgeous becomes ceremony. I mean just the bright colors. It's a beautiful day and beautiful ceremonies and I think what I love about. It is that you have all fifty four fifty four. Now we've got. Is it Maldives now? Part of the Commonwealth represented and everyone comes in addressing the country. At Real I think. A show of diversity and just togetherness especially. We're a very divided well. In this day and age so to have like two point four billion people of this planet represented at this service that embraces all faiths backgrounds and all the rest of it. It's cool. I'm all for really big money. It's beautiful ceremony and everyone just looks gorgeous and so royal and beautiful At the moment I think a lot people also talking about is kind of what you were alluding to where there was this moment where they had a chance to have the optics of Unity And a lot of the younger royals all sitting together and it appears in this moment Meghan sort of mouths. Hello to William and Kate who are sitting somewhat nearby to them and it appears as if no one really gestures back was that your takeaway as well. You know. It's so tough to know we're not. It is tough. I mean listen I was supposed to go to the ceremony and I stayed at the palace so long that I it wasn't possible to make it across town. In fact I think by the time Harry and Meghan wrapped up and they still need to change. They had like minutes to be on. I don't travel and I had no but yeah I mean I think we need to point out that way going for life feat that came from inside the Abbey that didn't remain on the couple's at all times and so as much as I would like to talk about it definitively. There's always the chance that something took place when the camera wasn't on but I think the initial moment when Cambridge has arrived and the Sussex is both said hello and it was what looked like a frosty reception to that. That felt weird to me because I thought that that initial hello yeah regardless of what may have happened on camera of the next ten minutes for the Queenside town Was a chance to show the world that everything is fun it regardless of what may have happened up until this point and I was really surprised that for a group of people that are so bloody professional when it comes to putting on a good face and putting on a show no matter what I mean when you're a member of the royal family and you're out there and you're doing work the engagements you are on. There is never an awful moment. That's behind palace walls. And that's very much the keep calm and carrying on at the Royal Family. So it's have been unable to do that in such a public setting as I said. I think that's very telling as to where where things are at the moment things that I spent a point out. One you're one hundred percent right. We do not know all that went down and so no one should assume anything like you mentioned you know. Maybe there was hugs and celebration together just off camera but I. It's a really good point that the chance. They had for that first impression when everyone was watching. They clearly didn't capitalize on which is telling and the other point. I just want to highlight is that you dropped bloody into the sentence which is just so British of you and I just really love it and I just wanted to mention that in the middle of Islam. He's my challenge to you. Gosh he's bringing bloody and the next week challenge accepted upbringing a cheerio. Also before we wrap up tell me more about what it was like being at this final engagement with Meghan. I know you describe it as being so emotional before and What was it like also for you? I mean you had the chance to hug her goodbye. You've covered them so closely for a couple of years that they've had this role What was linked for you to be there. It was surreal. I I didn't know I was even covering it until the morning of and I had a message from the palace Saying that you know the the couple Meghan which like Have Certain People Dafur this final moment and as we know you know the couple moving forward would like to sort of have a slightly different media arrangement with the way that that was covered. I don't think that they're really looking to have these very manage. Stage manage moments of getting out of a car waving going into a building and all the people taking their pictures and they just want it to be about the work. Of course they'll be red carpet moments here and there and what not i. This was almost a sign of things to come And I think it's great that they had a chance to do that. While still members of the royal family but yet being there I think it was anyone making came in the room And I realized where we were we were in the eighteen forty four room which is one of the state rooms at Buckingham Palace. It has seen a lot of the as I thought it was really poignant that we were there for the last moments of. Megan's of working royal life the reality sets in and I think just as much as it was a a major moment for Meghan. I think for everyone there whether you're staff whether you're from the Acu they'd had a long relationship with Megan and I thought it was great that Megan used this as an opportunity to show the world that she was taking work with her that these patronage as very much part of the picture moving forward and added chat with Joanna Newman. Who's the secretary general of the ACU? And she's gotten to know. Megan really well. I've the last year or so or since before that Fiji speech that Megan gave and she said that Meghan the impact. Megan's hatch on the ACU from a press or media. Perspective has been so strong since they've had her on board and not as she puts it. Because you know the articles are about. She wore this and she arrived at this time and she spoke to this person. She brings up things that actually make headline so there have been discussions about not enough black women or black people in general working as lecturers or academics in the supine education field in the UK as being talks about period. I mean Megan has really being unafraid. To sort of bring more to the role then pass we've seen in the past and that was something that she said you know. You can't buy that you know. She said the fact that we're on the fact that we're all in Harper's bazaar whatever you know these are places we never would have reached before so I thought that alongside the young people were talking about relevant issues today it was very much. Meghan establishing like this one. I'm taking with me but yet to bring it back to how I felt. I think I felt excited for them. To be honest. You know if the last few months we've been talking about what's next for them now. It feels like it's in place and Thera- about to go off and do that and although it was a farewell to Meghan I we know it's not the last time and I've said this over and over again the interest and that you can duchess of Sussex doesn't change. They're still members of the royal family. The family that is the most talked about family in the world he find they had no longer an HR h find an a longer working royals. But that's still engaging in the same issues that they were before and I think that that will continue long into the future but I do hope and then not listening to this but I do hope they take a minute just to rest and sort of heal and just let things the dust settle for while because they're so keen to just get on with the work but ultimately it's only worth getting to the finish line Ortiz that goal that they're so keen to get to. If you make it across the finish line in one piece I love that mindset though that this is the time for them to be excited that you're looking towards the future right now yes. It was a bittersweet week for them but it's an exciting time. Absolutely I have not forgotten the challenge that I sent you know difficult pretty good. Thank you guys as always sending in your tweets. If you WANNA reach me at the show I'll send any feedback or.

"Welcome back as I mentioned earlier in the shy Prince Harry was victim to Russian this week. Who tricked him into thinking? He was on a phone call. Greta turn back and her parents. The calls were recorded and sold to the sun. Newspaper in the K. And then put on. Youtube took place at the start of the year from calls that were made to his bank. Hoover Island home that he's currently renting with Meghan. It brings up questions about royal security but also comes at a time when the Sussex is really being through enough. I mean Maggie. You covered this story. It was gut wrenching. I I hope. I hate militias pranks because anything that purposely make someone else feel stupid. It's just mean this prankster duo in particular. They're kind of notorious in Russia Vladimir and Alexi and they've done it to a lot of people so you know first and foremost it make. Someone feels stupid to fall victim to a prank. But he wasn't alone. This is very common. They also pranked. Elton John. They pranked politicians and other celebrities. They're good at what they do. It's mean but they get a lot of people kind of what their stickers they'll often do these interviews fake being someone and then sometimes they'll sell clips to a newspaper Just a clip. And then you have to go to their youtube page and subscribe to see the whole interview. So you know. They're doing this for monetary gain. They're doing it to get subscribers. It's clearly you know it's mean and they do not have anyone's best interests at heart. Harry fell victim to it. This time and listening to you. Asia's it's always tough when you hear someone become vulnerable and open up because they trust the person on the other line and then to have. That flipped on them. It's just so difficult and they got him to talk about a lot of really personal things you know. We talked about his family. He talks about how difficult had been this time. You know things that a lot of newspapers have been speculating about. They got him to open up and get really vulnerable and so it was just. It was cold. I hate that kind of stuff. I really felt for them absolutely. I spoke with a source close to Harry earlier in the week and just said that I think he. He wasn't so concerned about what was said on the coal and not being out there because he stands by what he says. He's not not to hide anything from anyone. But it's that feeling of violation and it you know it's not a pleasant feeling to experience and I think the fact that the officer didn't go out through the usual channels onto this doers youtube channel. It got sold to British tabloid. Who were eager to exploit the contents of it for sales but also to make Harry look stupid and the timing too. They had just had this huge trip back to the UK. All it like we were saying we've been talking about it for months. All eyes were on them so to have it. Come out when the trip was still just wrapping up and as you mentioned. Harry was by himself. You know the timing was just Also sort of an extra stick in the eye right. It was like if it wasn't bad enough now. Everyone's looking at you during this hoax during this time when you're by yourself this reminds me of a story. I covered in two thousand twelve when it was announced that the Duchess of Cambridge was pregnant and she'd been admitted to King Edward the Seventh Hospital in London and an Australian radio. Dj had managed to trick the hospital into thinking that they were palace officials or whatever and they needed to get through to Kate's room and they ended up speaking with a nurse just in the Sultana who ended up revealing a couple of personal details about the duchess and then it was played on the radio station as a joke. And of course the DJ's killed themselves laughing and sort of made a mockery of the whole situation. This nurse was so mortified by what happened that a very short time later she was found dead and she's taken her own life as what was later discovered. And I think that that was a real reminded that these things can have serious serious consequences members of the royal family on no strangers to phone hoaxes in one thousand. Nine hundred. Five Queen was pranked by comedy hoax. Who had tricked her into thinking that she was on the phone with the Canadian Prime Minister who had her on the phone for. I think seventeen minutes talking about everything from the weather to her plans for Halloween which is just random but of course it made a mockery of royal security at the time and they had to sort of re look at the measures they took to sort of keep phone line secure and safe and so Diana as we know has fine lines have been taps. This also doesn't via too far from of course phone hacking scandals. And all the rest of it you know. Prince Harry's used to being violated in that sense as well and so it is really a part of a very toxic picture. I think and one that shouldn't be encouraged and I worry the newspapers paying money for content light that O'Neill encourages that kind of behavior from other similar sort of copycats. It's a good point and I think you making reminding people to that. We were talking about before they're royals but There's still people you know whether you're celebrity or a politician or someone who's royal you still make yourself vulnerable. Open yourself up and so then to have it violated it's not like that doesn't hurt and To hear stories like what happened to that poor nurse it just reminds you how words can really cut deep these types of rigs or hacks or any type of malicious activity. It can have real implications in life. Exactly what as I mentioned earlier in the show? Harry is now backing Canada. He stayed back for a few days after. Meghan left on Monday carrying out her final engagement Buckingham Palace before attending the Commonwealth so in front of the world and then flying back to be with archie the following morning. I think she was really keen to be. That's wake him up having sort of being apart from him for four days before we talk about our final engagement the Commonwealth services. I mean I think we hit spent days in different stories talking about coming up. The world will see them all come together for the comb out ceremony and then it happened and I don't think anyone you ought to make of it because it out in a very different way to what we were expecting. We expected the Cambridge's in the Sussex is to be part of the Queen's procession going into the West into Westminster Abbey as they had done in the past and of course it didn't happen. The Sussex's were relegated to the bench. In a way inside sitting alongside. The Wessex is who were probably brought in to take place of Prince. Andrew of course is no longer in the procession either. The Cambridge is on. The program of the service was supposed to be part of that. Procession report suggested that at the last minute was changed to sort of keep them equal to the Sussex is much is being made about the reasons full of ants I won't go into that. Nakas quite frankly. I don't know why it changed at the last minute. We can only speculate. I don't think anyone really knows. But yes all eyes were on the couples when they came in. And I've got to be surprised. I've got to be honest. I was quite surprised that that wasn't at least a show of warm and it was the Sussex's last day in a public capacity as working royals opposite. They continue until March thirty first. But they're already back in Canada and I would have thought that the Commonwealth surveys especially considering a continuing as president and vice president of the Queen's Commonwealth Trust very much of the Commonwealth picture that that said is wasn't a moment for the Royal Family's say no matter what has happened in the past few months where family we support and I thought the optics were just we as you make such a good point because if there was a day that the royal family new all eyes on them all eyes were on this moment right. I mean all the news organizations have been talking about that the fact that they were going to be analyzing this moment so they knew it was happening. They knew they were getting into so the fact again. Like you said that they didn't put on some purposeful show even if it was a fake show tonight saying it would have been but still even if they were going to even show. Let's say let's take. The Royal Family is a family. That undescended optic everything they do. Thoughts goes into those managed moments on toes and engagements that are done purposely. Send a message to the world. So do you think that moment was a purposeful message? Who knows who knows I would say that ties to make engagement not whole morning. I think was really tough for the couple anyway. and maybe. I'll tell this story backwards at the end of the engagement I stayed behind after the students that we away. So this engagement was with the Association. Let's say disengagement was the was the Association of Commonwealth Universities which Megan as Royal Patron Alvin that continues in the new chapter as well and they had brought in some of the brightest minds scholars from across the Commonwealth eleven different countries. Who are studying here in the UK under through Commonwealth scholarships and they're attending the service somewhere flag bearers. And they were there to meet with Meghan the patron and talk about how the work they're doing contributing to helping solve some of the problems the world's facing today so from climate change social justice a gender empowerment. Getting more women involved in science. Says the the whole gamut of kind of relevant issues and they had all left at this point to get on a minibus to go to Westminster Abbey and Meghan stayed behind. I was there with two of the journalists and It was a moment for her to say goodbye to some of the staff that have been so loyal to for the past year since established the Sussex Offices For the last time that was really her moment to say goodbye and it was emotional. I saw Meghan really composed that engagements a talking with the students engage. Shit done her research. It was like Meghan that we know. Yeah but I think the after the war that week of the farewell told that she was here for where God was up. This was a moment to be vulnerable amongst familiar faces friendly faces and it was tough. Chic Tearful. There were hugs. I gave myself say goodbye. You know we've all been part of this journey with the Sussex's and I've read a piece in Harper's bazaar this week about just looking back to you know the moment that I raised up to Kensington Palace. That photo call by the Sun. Compond were Harry was so excited to share the news. His side kick his teammate. And he said we're team foot that sort of becoming to an abrupt end now two and a half years later when they're no longer working royals. I think for Meghan standing in Buckingham Palace. Doing that engagement would have really time because a this isn't a situation that they wanted. We know that they started the year asking for this half in half out model but at the same time it also would have been. Perhaps the last time she'll ever stand and Buckingham Palace as a senior working member of the Royal Family. I'm sure in the future. She'll beat she may be there for trooping the colour or what no. I don't think that they'll be that they see that who knows. I don't have any insights on that but it would have been. It just would've hit home and it was clear. I think from her body language and just the way that she wasn't that moment. Very real very vulnerable very emotional. Set to go from that into the service at Westminster Abbey and a lot of the family members would've known that they would have just finished up their work as well and that she was flying back straight afterwards to Nazi. That's sort of like warm arm of a family member off some kind of welcome or effort being made..

"Want to know. Welcome back to the airport. I'm your host amid scurvy bringing you the latest goings on in the house of Windsor. And I'm not alone Maggie Rulli. Thanks for joining me again. Friend of the show part of the family at the end of a a Welwyn Harry. Meghan officially back in Canada. And it won't be long and fast. Can that happen? You will the bill. We had a really long build up from the start of the year up until now and then just assist whirlwind farewell for an boom the point. I think I I think. About how many live shots? I did talking about them coming. And the countdown and then finally they were here and I was like. We've been talking about this for months. The moment is here so definitely was. You're right a long build-up definitely a bittersweet end. But of course an exciting start for something new as well. We'll go right into that later into the show including my experience going to Duchess Megan's last engagement we neatly Buckingham Palace. It was an emotional morning before the Commonwealth ceremony We haven't even spoken about the Commonwealth. Sorry it feels like a lot is actually happens all side. They do much happier as a lot. But before that top headlines Corona virus has affected everyone and every sphere of the planet including the Royal Family who are famous. Keep calm and carry on approach to things but at the moment on now sort of stepping into a new gear we've got a slew of cancellations through all of the households. I'll be going through all of those later in the show but yeah it's been it's been the story that's dominated your week just rocked my world minding me that the Commonwealth Celebration was on Monday because that seems like a lifetime ago I think so much has changed in the past forty eight hours. I mean if you told me last week that we would be headlining this podcast talking about corona virus and the royals thought you were crazy and now it seems like we can't not mention it. It's it's everywhere. I think we've had this buildup we've watched it of course go from the. Far East through to the Middle East into central Europe and now instead of entering all space and it happened very quickly. And of course I mean you've been at the forefront of the coverage over here. It's changed in last couple of days. I think even in the US as well people have gone from not really thinking. It's going to affect them to think shutting down almost overnight and I think what's been wild to see that it's affecting not only just thousands of sort of nameless statistics that you see come out in the news but also high profile people we've seen so many world leaders now fall ill with the first lady in Canada many Brazilian leaders. Uk Health minister here And so all the sudden you realize you're like they're not people who are people celebrities a heads of state and they're not immune to this that can hit anyone and so I think all the side. And that's why you see these cancellations and The sort of Cautious fear that's been building. Well let's talk about that. Because on cheese day Prince Charles was due to fly over to Bosnia for the beginning of a tall and Camilla was going to join him off to its for Cyprus and Jordan and that was very much a big part of Calendar Day Sierran. Clarence House has just announced. Read the statement that says Owning to the unfolding situation with the corona virus pandemic the British government has asked that rule highnesses to postpone death spring toll. Now I've had a conversation with current says say that both of them are in good health of because we have to be aware of the age they do fall into a demographic that is slightly more at risk than perhaps the younger members of the Royal Family. But they're really doing this based on the advice of the British government and what they're going to do with the extra time they have called. It was a six-day tour. They're actually looking at some engagements to carry out in the UK. Not Of course large gatherings but something they can do to sort of fill the time because they of course still want to work but of course now. We had an announcement literally just before I got here. Buckingham Palace confirmed that the Queen is also rescheduled engagements in the UK. Says he was due in Camden in London in Russia which is a few hours from the city and they writes us a sensible precaution and for practical reasons and the current circumstances. Changes are being made to the Queen's Dari commitments in the coming weeks and writes in consultation with the medical household and Government Have Majesty's forthcoming visits. We will be rescheduled so the order and they stay. They continue to say that the audience is that she has continued behind the scenes. Of course we saw meet the High Commissioner of lanker earlier this week and there were photos of them not shaking hands. And that's kind of something that we've seen become the norm now for all members of the Royal Family. I'm obsessed with Prince Charles's NAMA stay any engagement in the past week. I'm I think I'm GonNa copy that. It's kind of like non offensive way of saying to someone like I don't WanNa touch you stay but I appreciate you correctly. It was kind of good vibes to. I'm all for that. But yeah this is you know this is affected the work of all members of the Royal Family and of course with big Events and large gatherings also being sort of locked down in the UK. We're also seeing Princess Anne. She sets out from her parents at the six nations rugby match. Because of course that's being cancelled and that you could Edinburgh's award is being canceled There was an award ceremony that was coming up for that that was to be attended by Prince. Edward that has been shut down to. So it's really kind of affecting their work massively and we can see very little of the royal family over the next coming weeks if this is how. It's going to be moving forward as seems like it's going to be like this again. It's so fascinating to watch how it's unfolding. Seems like in the last forty eight hours. Everyone's paying attention and then they give you big announcement from the royals. You realize how big of a deal this is going to be for the Royal Family for UK relief of the world. And I think it'll be a very also monumental sign when the royals backout it'll be sort of a very uplifting moment for the people here in the United Kingdom to see sort of this leadership again. It's kind of an example. Sometimes people ask. Should they ask us at the time? What's the point of the monarchy and I almost feel like? Oh this is sort of a time where they could be leaders country show this leadership and even just the way that they're showing a different ways to greet people and People can adopt that education and then when we finally see them again. I think it'll be a moment. Where on the other side of this and so it's a reminder that they still really do have this huge symbolic presence here absolutely and ninety three year olds you know. The Queen has carried this country through so much through wars through recessions through major deaths. She has really been someone that this country turns to in times of need and I think there was any last week. We saw the queen wearing gloves at an investiture and she hasn't worn clubs in her photos for decades at this particular event because of course there is that sort of personal intimacy in that moment. That is very special for the person on the receiving end and of course all the press picks up on that and I think the palace was really keen to not starts of sense of panic because of a queen. Is there to be calm and to lead? And you know the response on the palace was that she was simply following guidance that the government was giving everyone in the country which was just to be cautious and to be aware of hygiene and so on and so. I think as you say when the royals come back out when they are traveling again when they all shaking hands again I think that will be assigned to the country that it sort of It's time to breathe a sigh of relief that the worst is over and so people will be looking to lean on them for that support. I think I'm ready for that. I'm ready for them to be back. They haven't even left yet and I want it back. It'll be tough. I mean you know a Meghan left on Monday after the Commonwealth Service and I think we expected Harry to fly at the same time he actually stayed back for meetings and as the days went by I think people and I certainly received a lot of messages on social media. People worry that perhaps he may get stuck here. Because of course would flights from you. Casey Canada eventually be shut down at some point. He did actually fly back on Thursday to be reunited with family so panic over speaking of them on she. We'll expected archie to be here and I think there was. Some people questioned why he didn't come in the end and of course it was a business trip. We shouldn't expect to see him every time they come to this country but actually the main reason this was confirmed to me a source close to the couple. They just didn't want to travel with Archie in the middle of what was about to become a pandemic of course it did become one. It was sensible since we'll parenting at that level of stress to write that when you're caring about yourself it's a whole other ballgame when you're carrying about your young infant child and so it seems responsible to want him to be in the best best hands that he can be so. I mean at the moment the palace is really saying that it's a day by day thing really sort of monitoring the situation there are of course bigger events coming up you know. Prince Harry is coming back to the UK in April for the London. Marathon will the London marathon. Go ahead or I'll be too close to this. At the INVICTUS Games is in May in The Hague. That's of course a huge global gathering. Will that go ahead? Prince Charles's visiting Rwanda in June for the Commonwealth Heads of government. Meeting will take place so there's still a lot that we don't know I mean you're at the center of this story covering. Where are we now in terms of UK in Europe? That's the big question. I think it's the question everyone wants to now. I mean obviously right now. Italy has just become this epicenter for Europe and the numbers. That are coming out in. Honestly they're kind of terrifying spoke with medallion doctors earlier this week and his biggest warning he just said you know. Italy is about two to three weeks ahead of the UK and other European countries. So what they're seeing their. He's sort of gave a very dire warning he was like you guys are. GonNa see this in the UK in the United States unless precautions are happening. Even if those precautions happened you're still going to get a huge influx and so it was sort of terrified to with them actually. He's one of the top infectious IZAAK doctors in Milan. But he did say prepare now. Hopefully hospitals get. Bed's ready get extra ventilators ready people can practice things like social distancing like you know not maybe shaking hands like. We saw the royals do so all those things he said really can't help but unfortunately you think about that. Two to three weeks behind Italy here in the UK Italy is still going into their peak of this virus outbreak So many experts are saying the U K could be living through this now for a couple of months Which when you think about that. You know that butts into the Marathon Harry supposed to be coming back for a puts the invictus games in payroll as well and we still don't know what's happening with the Tokyo Olympics. Yeah exactly major events. That seem like they're far away. But when you're dealing with a crisis that might last for a couple months and totally disrupt life as we know you know. How long is it GonNa take to come back?.

"Of family of a victim and you. You can't underestimate those stories. You know since I wrote my book I have every day I hear from another survivor. Order a member of family of victim and they will once told me that's stories and every story is unique an every story is extraordinary and every story is is very very tragic and the reason they won't tell me is because they're scared that this situation is going to be forgotten that when they die because there will also now of course his fifth survive yeah. We're celebrating eighteen. Seventy fifth anniversary of the liberation vast ash fits but it's Yes this is the last generation and they think that when they die we will forget about it about the Holocaust deniers out there but a gaining ground that will scared about the growth in anti-semitism around the world's they see it happening again and they think that when they die they will not be. You know the stories will not be heard not very pleased with me for writing my book. I'm guessing that out there. And they want to know that when they go they stories will continue to be told in the writing on the wool obviously tells a very brave and emotional journey that you went on to discover has some of the secrets Within your family for so long. Was that a tough experience view because because even for me reading it I found myself quite tearful at chilly at times just at the way in which things unfolded and reveal to you. It's I think for one person and reading the book. It feels like your sort of on your own in this journey Eh. It felt like a law for one person to go through. It was very emotional journey for me. I mean what happened was the tie I never knew that I had this huge huge family on both my grandmother's side and my grandfather's side who were then all killed in the Holocaust L. A.. Coast and I had no idea existed. My father managed to escape person. Eight year old from Prague. He went on a lift kindertransport. That was organized by Christian A Christian mission in the UK very little nine transport that safe sixty eight children seven and my father was one of those children but he had to leave his parents. Knee basically never saw his father again And he came to England and started a in you life and it was. It was very difficult for him and he never spoke about this family but he had killed and I discovered them. Because I so the names written on the war memorial in Prague and Thad was my name written and I looked them up and these people were my my family. This was my great aunt. My great tongue calls that children on the wall and I had no clue and so I started on this long journey of discovery and found I was seventeen members of my family who emigrated in various camps camps around Europe up by the Nazis. All in different ways all in horrific ways some of them you know shorts when they were naked in front of a pit In in parts of Eastern Europe it was it was very very emotional journey but what I found that the end was the you know the Hitler wanted to wipeout my family and he. He didn't manage that because here I am then my father was. I have the family out there saying no. You didn't manage it. We are here. We all the survivors. And we're doing well so it felt out very uplifting in the end it was a very tortuous journey. How important do you think it is for members of the Royal Family to be involved in remembering member events like this I think in some ways for me this is the this is what the Royal Family does best which is getting involved in important issues that aunts there are humanitarian related not political and doing what they can to amplify Fi? The stories of those that may not have been hurt before. I think it's very important that I think in some ways you're right. This is what the Royal Family is. Four cashews they are. They can be construed just very political especially in in the instance of antisemitism around the world and especially in the instance of what is happening in Israel at the moment so it is difficult sometimes for political figures to get involved because they feel they are making a political statement that perhaps they don't want to make but the royal family can concern me get involved and have done so I think very poignantly. I'm very thoughtfully in the last couple of weeks. And you know you you and I both know that this we knew this was coming because we we were given the information mation and told that they were going to be involved. But when I saw that I'd still we know this is gonNA look like I don't I don't really understand a meme when I saw you. You know it will kick off with Prince Charles's amazing speech. I realized that this was actually going to be very powerful and it was very important that the royal family of course not a not Jewish. were out there supporting plying stories Saying you you know. This isn't just about the Jews in the world. This is about us. This is about us as human beings. This is about humanity. This is about how we go from here and what we learned from this absolutely hideous genocide so Julia I feel like quite lucky to have you this week. Because we have really focused on the Sussex story you know the past month that has dominated the headlines this week it feels like we're able to to really see the variety of stories that usually we deal with when it comes to family accounts torty about world affairs says without going into the issues surrounding Prince Andrew. The moment who was thrust back into the headlines off the FBI agents claimed that he had avoided or ignored requests to cooperate with the ongoing inquiry and investigations in the US. Burkina Palace would not comment but sources close to the palace did brief some of the British papers to say that Prince Andrew. I wasn't aware of any requests to speak with authorities. How big plays the story getting over in Australia at the moment? ARS getting a big a big play in this. This is the story that went. Go Away for the Royal Family. This is the one that is very very damaging You know we we we over here cannot understand why Prince Andrew is not out there talking to the FBI clearing his name. If he thinks that you know he's he is a tightly innocence and the teeth got nothing to answer. He needs to get on the front foot. So you know oversee the optics suggests just that this this something there and You know we. We want my child to the Apron. Prince Andrew also having back from his royal rose. Now there are questions beyond severe. Why is he still living in royal property you know? What is he doing now? What is he still guessing away? You know all those issues that came up with the financing of the Sussex is are valid also with the financing of Print Sandri. It's interesting you mention that there was actually a tweet. The was going around this week. I not right it But it certainly gained a lot of traction goes far saying it was viral and described one prince who was is forced to give up his HR h titles and to no longer be a working member the Royal Family and repay the cost of his five bedroom home and be stripped of his military honors simply for wanting freedom and on the other side was prince who has denied night Any wrongdoings but certainly being friends with a convicted paedophile and Now is refusing not speak with authorities according to reports who is still living in his thirty bedroom property tax payer funded property here in the UK and still is an HR h still has his military titles and is not technically officially of his vote. UC's he is. Certainly the I think the way the pilots described it was he was off for the foreseeable future but there was a story in the sun this week. That said that the palace we're actually looking to bring bring him back into the fold or hoping to at some points but obviously recent events and are making that difficult. Why do you think there is this discrepancy discrepancy here? What is why is it sort of one set of rules for one and not the other? Well I mean that is the question that is being I do not know the answer You know I think this is. This is something that the Royal Family needs to look at very closely because this is the one we'll damage the Harry Meccan wanting to go off and do their own thing and live in a country that is narrow mechanism. is really not such a big deal as print sanjay still being a member of the royal family who is not for the foreseeable future going to work receiving funding. That is a very basic problem. I think it's it's interesting this week. I found the palace were a lot less forthcoming when it came to commenting guiding on this story I think in the past the hat. Being some trickle of information or updates that would come from his office at Buckingham Palace this week the guidance that any reporter correspondent was guessing was the it was a massive being dealt with by Prince Andrew's lawyers when questions were asked about who those lawyers awe. Aw The answer was no comments. It feels like the palace may finally be distancing themselves from Prince Andrew and this story because they were very much at the heart of it whether they liked it or not when we last left. This story When he had done the interviews with BBC's ABC's Panorama yes? I mean I suppose the thing from the palaces points about this story is that it's a ten year old story It just keeps on coming back and they and they thought that they had out with it and it was it was in the past and managed to keep Prince Andrew Walking and fronts incentive. But then of course it came back by their own by Prince Andrew's iron hand with that disastrous interview A now that's something that can't be raised and me here in Australia I think that we feel the Prince Andrew Calm people back into the fold whacking member of the Royal Family. Absolutely it'll be interesting to see how this unfolds over the days ahead and I think the reason why it keeps coming back is because it is a story that never gets to end and and I think that can really bring that to an end. Is Prince Andrew himself. Julius has been such a pleasure having you on the show this week do come back and guys if you're listening at the writing on the wall Juliet's fantastic book is available to buy now all good book outlets And and I'm sure we can expect more from you in the future as well.

"O. Y. A. L. S.. Two eight four eight AAC. We also saw Prince Charles in Israel at the World Holocaust Forum and I think that for me was probably the most powerful how full of all of the engagements that rules were involved in this week because we heard from him himself he gave very passionate speech warning about the hatred and intolerance parents that still lurks in the human hearts and this was of a c at the event marking seventy five years. I just want to take a quick listen to that speech now and then not come back to you. The lessons of the Holocaust are searingly. Relevant to this day. Seventy five years after the liberation of Auschwitz Birkenau Akano hatred and intolerance still look in the human heart. Still tell new lies. Adopt adopt new disguises and still seek new victims all too often languages used which turns disagreement into dehumanization. Words are used as badges of shame to mark others as enemies enemies to brand those who are different somehow deviant all too often virtue seems to be sort through verbal violence all too often real violence ensues and acts of unspeakable cruelty astill perpetrated around the world against people for reasons of their religion their race or their beliefs knowing as we do.

"Hello won an all. Welcome back to the airport feels like today. It's been a very busy week for the royal family and it feels like you might hear me say this later on in the show but the thought of the day for me the dust is finally finally settling on Harry Megan's departure from rural Giusti's and Beginning that new life in Canada. We've heard very little from the couple this this week last week. We spoke a lot about the legal letter that the couple issued when patsy had harassed them ounce on Vancouver Island this this week it seems like things finally getting a little quieter and ultimately that is exactly what they want I think that they will remain like that full. Oh the days and weeks to come visit the happy and other stories taking up the headlines this week which will be getting into in the show. Little later Ron Prince. Andrew has continued according to reports to avoid questioning by the F. B. I.. Are we talking about that with our guest this week. we've also had the Cambridge's Prince Charles and the Duchess of cone will out at Holocaust. Memorial events will be talking about the meaning of that and why it's so important member of the royal family to be involved in such important occasions and of course we have Had Cambridge's out separately and together this week the Duchess of Cambridge continued her big push on her five big question survey across the UK. This is what she launched last week. aim to spark conversation about raising the next generation of children. It's all very much part of her early early years Childhood Development Work that she's involved with She was a school in London this week kindergarten. I believe where she visited visited. Children under the age of five years old to help serve their school meals as she actually helps in the kitchen preparing all of the lunches that we're brought out and it's always. I think it's always great to see kate around children. I think it's a time when sets in the I remember in the early days of hurting engagement agents. She was always very nervous when it came to public speaking. And perhaps a little shyer on some of the engagements around other adults or officials and it was always around children that we would see her really come out of her shell and while she has grown in confidence now I think that's it's always going to be where she's at home comfortable and it makes sense why she has chosen to focus their so famously on charter developments. And we'll see more engagements from her in the weeks to come to conduct Cambridge also heading off to Wales in the U K next Tuesday to visit organizations and businesses at the heart of local communities. There I would say that this type of day out is very much a traditional title Royal Away Day it is the visiting community centers. It is the cutting ribbons. It is the wet Wednesdays in random parts. What's that the UK that rules are best known for and I think it will be a day of four or five engagements. Some of those are embargoed so I went into into them now but I think it's whilst may be quiet now on the Sussex's side of things we are. Seeing the members of the family Really stepped forward. It and I guess work on an even bigger stage. It'll be interesting to see how this will work out when the Sussex is back at work look I think that whether people want it or not the tabloids are going to pit them against each other and it's going to be a constant conversation Asian about who's over shattering who. I think there was something this week. A couple mealy posted something on instagram and will already accused. I Buy Purchase tabloid for somehow thwarting attempts by other members of the royal family to get their work out. There it's all part of the silliness and stupidity that it goes on here but I would like to shift gears for a second and bring on my guest for this week. Julius Redon is an editor at the Australian Australian women's weekly she's all several correspondent and author including a book that I will talk to you about shortly. We've gotten to know each other. Haven't we me Julius over the years through royal tolls. We sat me. Have we've been hanging out there watching them. Yeah I feel like it's it's a quite unique experience going on these world. Hordes that very few others sort of get to truly understand what it's like a bizarre school trip of sorts very definitely a bizarre. It's also bizarre full. Muth of journalism for all the other forms of journalism we do. There's nothing like being. WHOA correspondent is absolutely I feel so in some ways the rules are a little bit different when it comes to roll reporting because I think whilst elst lots of the daily coverage is based on the work that the members of the royal family? It's also heavily focused on their private lives and this year has pretty much revolved around the private. Lives of Harry and Meghan I feel like this is the first week. Actually the dust feels like it settling and were were able to see or notice what other members of the family are up to as well yes. I mean here in Australia. Certainly the I've seen them Joepat the headlines a bit twitches night out what Harry and Meghan were after a little bit a piece of calm after the storm but also a few few mentions of Starting Life in Canada and potential ideas about what we might be up to. Yeah I feel like the the beginning of this year has been quite dramatic for the royal family. I don't think that the press has been particularly positive for the start of the year as well I think. Now that people are starting to dissect an analyze the reasons behind Harry making making the news that they wanted the rule family probably correct. If I'm wrong it seems like there may be some damage control to do as the months go by and now Prince Andrew Stories coming back into lights. It's GonNa be in some time. I think before the voyles get sort of bask in the glory that usually comes with coverage of the Royal Family. Yes yes I agree I mean I I think that The stories that we've been looking at obviously Harry and Meghan leaving Prince Andrew that they're not the sort of things that The Royal Family would like us to be talking about I mean here in Australia. There has been a lot of support for Harry and Meghan departure. I I think that's a a basic understanding of two young people wanting to control that live someone to to do their own thing and they don't you know. Australians Australians. Don't really understand why that would be such a big deal but it's what I'm asked about When when I when I talk about what what has happened most people say well what is what is the deal here? You know what. Why can this couple not choose to do their own thing? You know. It's not not such a bad thing that they're doing everything that we have seen them too has been trying to make a difference in the wild. Why can't we allow them to do? That was very interesting I think here in the UK UK. There's still this sense of How did they how did they sort of break away? From the Royal Family and treat to Queen in this way will will however else. It's being portrayed by the tabloids but as you say this is a story that essentially boils down to a young family looking for the best environment to thrive live in but also to work and that work I think will be exactly the same as a work. We've been seeing them do up until now I said this before but I think in six months time we're gonNA l.. Let back sort of this year and all the work that Harry making done them realize that things haven't changed that much they're still them. They're still doing the same things. Yes yes I mean I suppose I'm just thinking of how this now there is a little bit of a synergy between Harry making relationship with the Royal Family and Australia's relationship with the Royal Royal Family. We have we have sort of half-and-half outs proposal. I guess you know we have. The Queen is our our constitutional monarch because our head of state dates. The Royal Family is our royal family. But we don't see them. Yeah in the same way as Britain does so You know with very much at arms length and we do our own thing and we run around government of course and Should should the royals step in and try and change that nice out. There would be lots to be said about it but yeah so we kind of feel like we've got the best of both worlds. Maybe her and Harry Meccan should be allowed to Bitta. THATT's as well. Do you think that this move Aryan. Megan will change Australia's views views on the royal family oversee. We know in the past there has been sort of a growing republican movements that sort of began to fade somewhat when William came over for that toll with Prince George when he was very young and ever. Since then I think the roles opinion enjoying a sort of Another period of support and positive coverage since then but has recent events made people reflects. It's only change their views on on the royals over there. The the Queen here is incredibly popular. There's a deep deep sense. Affections came here in nineteen eighteen fifty four. The they're still many people who have. who were there watching that tour Three quarters of the population intend out to see the royal couple so I don't think anything will happen. Ross the quickness is still the monarch but having said that the young royals off very very popular here and the idea that we have lost Harry and Meghan from visiting regularly which which is essentially. What will happen because it will be too expensive for them to fund our own? Visit here and I don't know that there's a reason reason for him to come here. Then working royals Yeah that that will definitely affect the popularity here. Because we won't we won't see them in the headlines Linked Austrailia and that is what is important with regards to having members are monarchy because we we want to feel their pastas us as well now. They turned into something separate from Australia. not linked to us yes of course of massive interest in the headlines But Australian Royal Semi Mall. That's interesting because I I've noticed in the last few years Certainly in the mainstream press the majority Georgie of coverage. I'd say a good eighty percents of the role coverage seems to have being focused solely on Harry and Meghan. When you remove from the mix does does that mean to perhaps press coverage of the royals will be quiet or moving forward or will we will the media start to look back other members of the Royal Family family again and will the Cambridge have their moment back in the spotlight so many years ago? I think that the Cambridge's will have a anew minute tim a spotlight. I mean it started happening already. Certainly the duchess of Cambridge is is very popular. Here we see her. I'm in the headlines Lines a lot in a in a very positive way. There hasn't hasn't been any negative things to say about that. She's a Cambridge tool and her. I'm you know she's she's she's kept very much in the background there as a very stalwart member of the Cambridge court but the other thing here is the Prince Charles is is I think growing in popularity. He's got his Prince's trust here. which is I mean? It's nice days but but growing and doing work on the ground so he has got a foothold here in Australia. That's interesting when it's a sort of goes back to starts of the year and just the coverage that we've seen on Harry and Megan's departure as working members of the Royal Family D- what what are the reasons. Do you think that motivate them to make this move. I think we've seen at speculation everywhere and although we've heard somewhere somewhat in the couple here and there and this statement was quite clear what do you think the central themes that forced this to happen. I think they want to do their own thing you know. I think I think there were a couple of strands this this I the strand but Harry wants to protect his wife life and some from the glare of coverage that he experienced a child he does not want back for them and he started great to see it happening and he didn't like what he soul. He's made that perfectly clear I think the naive is that that will ever go away of course And if he steps out of the Royal Family as he has he does release that protection that he gets from being within the royal. Fold but I think the main the main strand for me is that they want to do their own thing in their own way and that is hard to do within the royal family within the strictures of the royal family. You know that. Not then the monarchs than the As you know Harry is the parents I mean. Harry is six in line and therefore he's he's lower down the pecking order and has to take his time and they've got big ideas this couple. They want to do big things and then not being able to do it. They feel they're not being able to do in the way they want to do it within the normal royal structure then now three thousand miles away from where they used to live but of course they still have to deal with some of the issues that perhaps they may have wanted to get away from that in particular is the Pressel the tabloid press. We've seen them struggle struggle with the Paparazzi ever on Vancouver Island. They've had to issue legal warning to you. Think that that may die down now or do you think I think this is a can to their new normal new issues to contend with. I think it is going to have to be then you normally. I think that they complained bitterly about the coverage guessing in Britain but that there is this unspoken agreement agreements between the British newspapers and the Royal Family that they.

Super Bird Jolly cosy Christmas getaway and just imagining being able to celebrate. There must be so special because we were talking about. It's a cosy. You know in quotation marks here a cozy by royals new place. It's often as it's smaller than others royal palaces and stuff and so we were saying how in years past even even Prince Harry had almost stay in a place like a closet. You know in general yeah pretty much yeah about the size of this podcasting room because there was simply no space and you know he didn't have a family yet so it's interesting to see how similar to kind of our families don't want. The royals are just like us. Put our families how ever come together for the holidays. You stay in these homes or people do the Times. I've gotten stuck into bunk bunk bed room like with the little kids. And it's sort of funny because you just you feel it right. It's like oh they're just all coming together for the holidays just like we do you kind of make ruin win snuggling together and laugh and Sandringham has a great history. Although it hasn't been the home of Royal Christmas for very long so any since the great fire fire Windsor Castle but they moved celebrations from there to Sandringham and that sort of being the small place that they celebrate it but the house itself has is a lot of history interesting about syndrome history sort of past this current royal family even past crine which is shocking. Because I feel like the Queen has now had such a A legacy but it was purchased by Queen Victoria for twenty two thousand pounds back in two hundred six thousand dollars. Yeah although I'm guessing that it was a lot of money back then but but still you think about a bargain which we go in just a little country estates together country Roy But so I think that it's been around since eighteen sixty three and the amount of celebrations that they've had there You've you've had some fires as well and it's been personal and private residences in the past but described as the most comfortable home in England. A Oh yeah because it says is because it had sort of flushing toilets. which back in the day was a huge luxury running water water so this is really the lap of luxury the most comfortable house yeah? I think it's probably I remember. A former staff told me that some of it has seen better days as now some of the carpets sort of like warn little prayed and but but then that gives it. Its Charles Boring Christmas mister. We're talking about those presents exchanged earlier. Afterwards everyone actually goes and changes probably for the fanciest nights of those three days that they spend spend at Sandringham for a black tie dinner and so that Christmas Eve. That's when they'll have Turkey like a big dinner and so on on and I think to change into sort of like I think the guys wear coat off tells very fancy very fancy. That's probably the most dressed up up you'll be unfortunately there are. PJ's in the morning. But the women on Boxing Day so the day after Christmas do get to Lyon a little bit and have their breakfast boss. What's up on TRAE? The men will have like hunters. I like traditional things that do. Do you know appeal to have contact pro. I've seen black pudding eaten it yet cues smokes capers the type of fish. Okay Yeah What else kidneys Prince Philip plus kidneys and liver? We should circle back for everyone. The black pudding is not pudding. Take blood sausage. I believe it's a very bloody some bride old. Yeah anyway so I think we sold it for everyone a great Christmas Day itself so they have to Turkey's on the dining table one of those turkeys. He's or two of them. I believe something like twenty five top at the. How can they insane had a conversation? With former royal chef. Darren McGrady recently and he said the techies often so big obviously ordered months in advance that they would almost have to take off the oven door. It is unreal but then there's a third Turkey pit cooked for the children because if you're so you can learn how to behave if you don't get to join the family at the table really you have your own Christmas celebration in the nursery. So all the Royal Nanny so ninety Maria Paraly- we'll be with Joel and in the royal nursery where they own Turkey is carved up and they have exactly the same menu as the rest of the Royal Family Albert with less spices and seasonings it's a little plainer and there's a legitimate not even the kids table kids room yeah in the royal nursery. But but that's because until you behave. How old normally do you have to beat us to the adult table until you can be? I guess that there will be a day. That will be a day. Where behave fun? It means that the kids get to have more fun and relax. It's more laid-back. But then whilst they're eating at this time table on the other side of the room get this. There is a separate table covered in chocolate chocolate. It's chocolate buffet so to speak that sits in this one location for pretty much the entire day. Just go and help Fuel Cell There Little Mint thins queen is obsessed name. The brand many types are available But but they're they're in plentiful supplies so this is like my heaven. Did you have a chuck unlimited chocolate because a lot of a lot of food. That's the greatest thing I've heard so far about Royal Royal Christmas Princess Diana once said that that is so much food so that you really have to pace yourself good problem and you the good thing. His everyone helps themselves. So it's not although there's sort of Silva service so the potatoes are brought around new help you so you can kind. That'd be clever and take off the smallest potato all my room for talk. Let us so. You can choose where you're going to be easy because of course you don't want to leave leave a full plate behind the head chef will come in and he'll cough that Turkey for everyone think McQueen will give him a glass of whisky. Hey once he's carved all three and then they all toast Christmas together. That's really sweet but again this is like a time for I. Guess it's like dropping the protocol a little bit. Yeah Yeah Yeah as much as you can drop protocol and still be a royal speaking of all residences. You've you've had your eye adventure this week. This was such a treat so we got to go up to a beaver castle. It's about a three hour drive just north of London and this castle. I it's sort of as we've talked about England has no shortage of royal palaces and Castles. I was great about beaver. Castles said it's probably The castle that every American has seen the most but they don't even know it because this is the castle behind all of these iconic film and ATV shoots like the crown most of it filmed at at this at this beaver castle. Young Queen Victoria the movie filmed there tons of TV. Shows shows and movies have all been filled this castle's kind of insiders in the industry call it like. TV's Windsor because it looks so much like Windsor Castle. If you film it from certain an angle or even Buckingham Palace inside so we got the Duchess said the Dutch that Brundtland who actually lives there fulltime castle is her home which is amazing and she. She was very sweet she goes. I just feel so lucky that I get to live here and wake up here every morning in so it's not lost on her that she lives in a castle but she was great and she gave us this big tour. Because get this They're opening up their doors for the first time. Ever so. If you go on Airbnb you can try to rent a waist Abbey. Yeah yeah the one room the king sweet though okay not shabby at all I. I sat on the bed and it is uh-huh comfortable like I was very happy so I sat I serpents. Flopped flopped on Liane experience report. Authentic cool did like you know a face plant onto the bed. I'm the feeling comfortable. They're renting out on New Year's Eve and two nights in January all the proceeds go to charity for the local community there so it's a really cool equal chance for people because it it was fun is that not only. Is there so much history there. This castle was built a couple of centuries ago the fourth iteration. There's been a castle on his property for for centuries thousand years the most recent one is really fresh really new built in the early eighteen hundred all those things a lot of the furniture their century old carpets pits are still centuries. Old support dreads. And as you're walking down the hall ways you'll look around all of a sudden you're like oh I recognize this. This is where like Leah Colman. Just walk as the Queen and the crown. Of course you can go back and I watched the trailer for the thirds. Isn't the crowd and you can walk down the same hallway that they do in the movie in the TV show. Oh and see the same rooms same bedrooms and the bed from the bedroom and young queen. Victoria is actually the same bed. They left it there after the film crew came. I am a so. There's definitely so much sort of new. TV history also mixed with actual real royal centuries old history of that it makes for a really fun place to go especially at this time of year as well. How old decoration? In every fireplace so every room you walked into to that crinkle ICK DOC was so cozy and everything was decorated. I think this year they counted they had more than twenty degrees which she said was actually fewer than in years past in. Here's Pat Pat like sixty but this year they went for some bigger trees instead of small. Switch just twenty. They were easily like twenty feet tall. Some of these Christmas business.

"Hello and welcome back to another episode of the airport at before we get into the main show just as we finished recording here here in the studio at the ABC Bureau in London at we had breaking news from Buckingham Palace about that. You could make an announcement came saying that Prince. Philip traveled himself from Norfolk this morning to the King Edward the seventh hustle here in London for survey ship and treatment. In relation to a pre existing assisting condition the trip untold by palace sources. Wars planned long in advance. He's expected to stay in the hospital for Fatu three days under the observation of medical professionals. There I'm told that there is no cause for alarm. Of course the Queen has just herself arrived at Sandringham. At of Christmas. She'll actually stay there while Prince Philip's here in London receiving treatment and observation and I fully. He's expected to join the rest of the family for the Christmas break oversee. This story will continue over the days ahead. The palace aren't revealing anything more than that At but they are stressing that this has been sort of preplanned visits and that there is no cause for alarm at the moment. Hello it's the airport. Christmas special relying on with Maggie Rulli just felt like I felt like I need to get into the spirit. Today's actually the I cannot in the mood and had I'd like brownies for breakfast. You're really embracing Santa Claus this time of year. It's my first Christmas in London and my first Christmas covering the royals and their Christmas Shenanigans and if it does make you jolly they do so much Christmas. Cheer here it's insane compared the states. You guys do Christmas on a whole other level. Who Yeah I mean I think for you guys? You have Halloween. Then you have Thanksgiving Christmas broken up. We pretty much from the day Halloween finishes finishes. That's when we start counting down to Christmas and as world correspondence. I feel like we're like children waiting for like. What are the rules doing on Christmas Day it constantly asking the palaces? What is going to happen on Christmas Day like yeah? What are they asking for Christmas with so much? Well we will be talking about what the royal children will be up to on Christmas Day on around the festive season and when we look into how the roads are celebrating at Sandringham. This this Christmas everyone will be there Harry and Meghan who is still on their own little break away from the UK. Trying to I'd say in in the the the the most secure way possible thought about giving because I think I've made some reference to a few weeks ago and the next day there was like seven headlines about where Harry and making them stay in it was like I didn't say between the lines so for everyone listening. He saying nothing. Don't don't read between these lines. We're just trying to have a jolly episode here exactly. I do think we'll hear from them. I've the festive season on. Social Media. Hasn't hasn't been a Christmas cut with recording this on Friday as same day we come out. There hasn't been a Christmas card released the ads. The Cambridge's had a Christmas. Kaku is planning to release it. The guard super cute so matt. PORTIA sues of course work with the couple before and worked with the success He took the phone number photos with a couple and the family became just throughout the year. And this particular image off off William and the kids with with one of William's bikes. We don't often talk about it. But it has his own collection you know he's a keen rider and so's So it's Harry to the Easter. Actually right around London together the old days. Yeah Oh sometimes it like three in the streets like completely clear fine photo it was very cute and I think the police are going to be releasing something over the days ahead. Similar kind of vibe. I actually had a peak of it. Already promised briefing. So we've kind of been given a little bit of a loss ahead over just as cute it is. We should expect it to be very okay. Good it's hard not to make Accu- Christmas card with those little kids absolutely. I mean. That's a clear winner. It's not like my Christmas cards. I tried to put out and like seventeen photos of me doing weird things from the ear. Put out your car. O of course every year. I'll I'm GONNA send send you want my husband and various photos of just ask if you don't have any kids just us throughout the year. This'll be a lot cuter. If there are kids involved was being a big. If you've moved to London your life into sort of royal bubble now justifying my Christmas. Okay whatever I can't compete with willing cates card. It's okay kids are really cute you win. Okay William and Catherine if you're listening you win but yes. I think there's always this kind of excitement about how the royal spend their time sounding in for Christmas. It'll be a little different this year because usually we focus very much online wilbur fab four be working together in which children will be there. I think the big question that everyone has an amendment is will we see Prince Andrew on the talk about a turn of events events. Would you have ever guessed. Even last year that the big question at Christmas this year would be about Prince Andrew not about the Fab four yeah of quote Unquote Unquote. Senior members of the Royal Family. has dominated the headlines for the past few months for a story that's actually long existed. This isn't isn't new. Information was given new life and of course we saw him a stripped of his duties Last month and that's will continue for the foreseeable future. I don't think it'll be any change there. But we will still see him alongside his family members at private. Ah Events and I've checked in with Buckingham Palace to see whether we will see Prince Andrew on the day off Christmas the moment that there is no official comment. However however the guidance is that's Andrew will be alongside all of his family members and sources say that he'll probably come rather than walk with everyone from the the Bake House to the Church Hill actually joined the queen in her car longer walks anymore? He's often age. It's a long walk doc. And the Queen has shown some level of support for her son. Despite the difficulties he's faced over the last few months there were those forces the pair writing together often. It was announced that he would no longer be a sort of working active member of the Royal Family. It's interesting I think but those photos a lot of people were saying that has to be planned the everything but the royal family as planned so having this outing horseback. You knew you're going to be photographed. It was very much a show of support from a mother to her son. So if Andrew Rides in the car with the Queen on Christmas morning is also something you think would be planned as this show show of support for her son. I think I had this conversation with someone the other day. Actually you know with the Queen. Everything she does. This I thought behind it. Whether it's the broach the color. She's wearing the hat the umbrella that everything. It's not just what she says is all in the mannerisms the via Mitri entry and the optics something that are constantly discussed behind the scenes at a in the in the household offices and for Andrew Andrew. If he is by her side on Christmas Day that will very much be purposeful pats a mother potentially saying despite everything he is still my son on on a not gonNA turn my back on him and we have to remember that these are allegations that he denies and he's not being found guilty of anything. We'll destroy. Go Away. Who knows I think this will follow us into twenty twenty? You make a good point. I think that it's definitely gonNA stay a story. There are too many any reports out there and but the point that the the queen everything. She does so deliberate and thought out is is so significant even with with her out for choices like you like you said. I mean. We're GONNA wear Christmas Day. This is kind of changing topics. Changing gears here but No her official wardrobe stylist. I I know came out Speaking about how they choose the Queen's out but and never gonNA wear color that she's worn even in the past few years so it's always interesting when you see these these big public displays of the Royal Family and you look at it from afar but to think about the details and the amount of months of planning that have gone into like you said the Roach. She's wearing Gordon. Walk in. I mean these are significant details that they deal with. It's funny you ask about close because the first warrior I think anyone one has attending Santa for Christmas is there are so many of that for me. It's like am I going to bring my cozy slippers and my cozy socks to my family Christmas. What are you even going to pack? I mean listen. Let me run through it on around lunchtime on Christmas Eve. That's when members of the Royal Family starts arriving and there's a hierarchy so if you are lower in the rankings you will arrive. Before the more senior members members of the Royal Family and each family member is met by Butler's upon arrival that will take them to their rooms all their luggage is taken away. They don't unpack of course US those butlers and maids will help unpack everything. I remember. Actually someone who will remain nameless but visited the the queen about moral one summer and was so worried about what to pack his because they knew that it would be it it would be unpacked someone else. Of course you're bringing brand new pajamas. Brand new everything boost someone clean all. I'm saying not your time to make your dirty under guard so there are several dress changes every day. So let's think about you've got an outfit. You're arriving in and then we'll have an outfit for the evening. Of course there's a gift exchange that takes place which royal family of German descent. So so they do it. The German way which is to exchange gifts the night before Christmas nor on Christmas morning although I'd imagine that the rules bent slightly children. Because it's fun special. Yeah exactly so then. Of course you have then the following morning casual clothes breakfast and after three then you will wear your church coats. We're the dress or underneath and that outfit you'll also wear for your lunch after lunch. He'll change into walking clothes because everyone goes out commits intrigue Little Tweeden may be okay and then again fatih you may change again and and then there's another change for Sapa in the evening and then of course on boxing day. You're shooting close Chris. If you're feel man men and then it goes on so it's Kinda double digits. Ten planets change. It's overwhelming. What the aside of luggage you must bring? Who can I still think an SUV? But then the question is listening. Might want options right. Yes yes what if do people. Do you know what the rules are around. Organizing yourself in terms of what the queen's wearing like what if you show up and you'd happened to wearing the same color as the queen do you have to change. No I think this is yes. That's what we're talking about. Public engagements often seen When we've seen cates and Touches touches upon woman the Queen on engagements together of course as compensations between COURTRAI officers. WHO WHO's wearing? What is as a family affair? So yes there's the formalities. As sort of dress code so to speak but everyone is probably quite laid back about it. I'd imagine when Kate was a newcomer when Megan was attending Christmas. That's a panic anxiety is it's words Laid Back Family Affair Casual. Those words are never applied to royal settings. This whole event fascinates dates me from a coverage standpoint. Because you think about it and you're like what goes on. Wouldn't you love to be a Flan. The Wall and I mean you never get to think of the royal family in these sort of just casual intimate family moments right where they're opening president and Sitting around at Christmas and having tea I mean I You say casual clothes casual events. I just it's so fascinating to me to think about these high profile royals sort of acting together nice to me. It's the first time one of the few times of the year that they're all together That there is no sort of duty volved with this private time. Time is the time of celebration. The Queen's head of the Church of England time of prayer in religion and. I think that this is when royals truly come together and rest but you do follow a strict schedule so once you arrive in one of your staff has been unpacked..

"Welcome back to the airport guys. Seven days is come around is black Friday as we were caught there so I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving and now busy picking up bargains online. I'm joined by I. Ice voyles producer. Lizzie Robinson this week. Going to be helping me navigate. What has been quite chaotic busy week week? It has been of course as we record this. The Sussex is far away. They are on their on their break right up until Christmas Christmas and send that they celebrated Thanksgiving privately with a close family which is lovely and amazing to think. This year was the celebration Asian of their two years then outside engagement I know I saw post Harry and Meghan shed new photo from an an outtake from one of their wedding photos taken by Lexie. Leave a Mirsky on their instagram account this week and it just reminded me how long is being since that day. The I remember driving at a very fast but legal fees from Oxford because I was out of London at the time and we got the confirmation that they're engaged in about ten o'clock in that and then they had that you take cool a couple of hours later in the sunken garden at Kensington Palace. Bitterly Italy cold But Yeah Lot's happened since then it is. The cold is definitely one of the things that we have to contend with as royal correspondent wants people think that it is such a glamorous job that you all with the royals wherever they go swimming in and out of palaces and great great venues search in the way that they do but unfortunately that's not the right. We've normally been made at least an hour ahead of them. Exactly what uh-huh standing around standing out in the cold is my. I'm just getting over a cold and sending out in the cold is my absolute worst thing about covering royals. Because there's so much Eh. Throughout the winter I'm forever freezing. I find it so difficult to file copy from my phone when my hands seizing up in the bits of frost that that we have. We're always have here. It's pretty cold now. Not being dramatic. I was talking with someone else Earlier this week about okay so how we stay warm throughout all these cold roll engagements and I have. I don't think you've heard of this before when I mentioned it to you earlier but sometimes I bring a piece of cardboard and our stand on that and it was actually one of the other world correspondents. That told me about this trick. I I can't wait feet Peter I it's it's just a small piece of cardboard and it's only if you'll somewhere for a long period of time you just keep it in your backpack but it stops the cold from traveling up from the sidewalk through your of your shoes grounded Know exactly you are stuck too often are the how warm is mega. I I remember reading a story about how making gifts hand woman's to that we used to give an woman's to the gods at Kensington Palace. One of her friends visit her home when she was living in. Nottingham Cottage kept a box of them in the corner of a hallway and a friend was like what. What are those folks? It was literally a box. Like eighty. Eighty.
