Royal Boing Boing

Profiles in courage here, folks. Mitt Romney is a shitstain on the great state of Utah. Today, the Utah Republican Senator was asked about Trump's Sunday tweets that called for four congresswomen to go back to their countries of origin.

Here's the 'Stranger Things 3' line that cracked up Stephen King

Royal Mashable

Warning: Contains very light spoilers for Stranger Things Season 3. Three seasons in, and Stephen King is still enjoying Stranger Things just as much as the rest of us. The horror master has been a fan from the early days. It's not hard
'Warning: Contains very light spoilers for Stranger Things Season 3. Three seasons in, and Stephen King is still enjoying Stranger Things just as much as the rest of us. The horror master has been a fan from the early days. It's not hard to see why, either — with its copious references to King's many books , the show feels, at least in part, like a love letter to the iconic author's work. From the looks of the tweet he posted on Sunday, King is currently about mid-way through Season 3. And it sounds like he already has a favourite line.

Considering our current administration, the United States doesn't have a lot to offer the Royal Family in terms of photo opps.  At least, that appeared to be the case until the European premiere of Disney's The Lion King , at which — I kid you not
'Considering our current administration, the United States doesn't have a lot to offer the Royal Family in terms of photo opps.  At least, that appeared to be the case until the European premiere of Disney's The Lion King , at which — I kid you not — Meghan Markle and Beyoncé Knowles-Carter hugged . Allow us to set the scene. Rolling out an aptly Simba-yellow carpet, the Sahara-set remake debuted to British and European press, as well as the film's cast and crew, on Sunday at the Odeon Luxe Leicester Square Theater in London's West End.

The Photos Of Meghan, Harry, Beyonce, & JAY-Z At 'The Lion King' Premiere Are #SquadGoals

'Meghan Markle and Prince Harry may be new parents to 2-month-old baby Archie, but that didn't stop them from going to the UK premiere of Disney's The Lion King in London, England. Not only did Meghan and Harry get out of the house for the premiere, but they hung out on the red carpet with some pretty big stars. The photos of Meghan, Harry, Beyonc, and JAY-Z at The Lion King premiere are total #SquadGoals The Duchess of Sussex, who was joined by husband Prince Harry on Disney's The Lion King red carpet, stunned in an all-black Jason Wu dress with sheer black sleeves while her husband wore a matching all-black suit. According to People , this premiere marked Meghan's first-ever film premiere as a royal . Before the premiere of the film, Meghan and Harry shared some hugs and conversation with fellow royals, well, music royalty, that is. Meghan and Harry mingled with Beyonc, who voices Nala in the live-action film, and her hubby JAY-Z. Beyonc was wearing a custom gold pleated gown by Cong Tri while JAY-Z, like Harry, wore a black suit, per People. The photos of these four meeting are seriously incredible and have left me totally starstruck. In one of the photos, Harry and JAY-Z can be seen shaking hands ahead of the event. In another photo, Beyonc and Meghan are pictured hugging in a sweet moment. TBH, I really wish I could have scored an invite to hang with this squad. Meghan has had quite a busy couple of months. On May 6, Meghan gave birth to her and Harry's first child, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, a pretty non-traditional name for a royal baby . During the premiere of The Lion King , it's reported that Beyonc told Meghan it was nice to meet her and also told her \'that baby is so beautiful,\' according to a fan video posted on Instagram . OK, a Beyonc and Meghan friendship is something I never knew I needed, but I hope these photos are just the beginning. Meghan's hangout sesh with Queen Bey and JAY-Z definitely isn't her only celeb encounter news to circulate in recent weeks. On Saturday, July 13, the Duchess of Sussex attended the women's singles final with her sister-in-law Kate Middleton to see her close friend Serena Williams play Romania's Simona Halep at Wimbledon. At the post-match press conference, per People , Williams told reporters that Markle is \'such a great friend and a great person as well. And always positive, no matter what. Meghan and Harry also had another surprising celeb encounter that was revealed recently, even though it happened all the way back on their wedding day in May 2018. In a recent interview with BBC Radio 1Xtra , actor, director, and musician Idris Elba revealed that he actually DJ'ed Meghan and Harry's private wedding reception. He revealed some more details about his gig , saying, \'Meghan sent me a playlist with some bare tunes on it.\' He also alluded to Meghan's California roots, saying, \'There was some West Coast on it.\' I don't know about you, but I love the idea of the Duchess of Sussex absolutely jamming out to some West Coast tunes spun by DJ Elba. It truly seems like Meghan and Harry are living their best lives at the moment. Of course, I'm sure Archie is their top priority, but I'd like to think they were also pretty pumped to meet Queen Bey IRL.'

Is there rift between the Royal Ladies?

'Royal biographer Duncan Larcombe claims Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton’s  surprise outing  was an “orchestrated front” to distract from royal feud rumors. Kate and Meghan joined their husbands for a day of polo and brought their children along with them. Yesterday, Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton surprised everyone by showing up to a polo match between Prince Harry and Prince William—and they brought their adorable children with them. The family outing honestly seemed lovely and  so  laid-back: Charlotte and George played soccer, Louis wore sunglasses and pointed at things, and Meghan looked radiant holding Baby Archie. She and Prince Harry even shared a cute moment after he’d finished playing: Meanwhile, Harry and William—who’ve been dealing with rumors of a royal feud for about a year—seemed to be getting along great. But royal biographer Duncan Larcombe is out here claiming this entire outing was carefully orchestrated. During an  interview with Nine News Australia, host Belinda Russell noted that after looking at photos from the event, one had to ask, “What feud?” And Larcombe gave the cryptic response, “Isn’t that what we’re supposed to think after today? It was carefully orchestrated—there are always photographers at these polo matches.” He elaborated, “They all looked very happy today, so it’s against the backdrop of the rift, of course….I think that they might not be the best of buddies. But you’ve got to take a lot with a pinch of salt….I think they’ll be rather pleased with those pictures.” Hmmm. Honestly, fine, it’s entirely possible that this outing was “orchestrated” in an attempt to detract from negative royal feud press. But if that’s the case, who cares? Is it that bad that the royals would want people to know they get along just fine? Let them live!

Prince Harry’s Invictus Games dragged into blood money row

Royal Best World News


'Humanitarian campaigners criticise Prince Harry’s Invictus Games for being sponsored by Britain’s biggest arms dealer Invictus UK team will wear shirts with BAE Systems logo for the first time The shirts will be seen when they compete at trials in Sheffield later this month Company reportedly paid a six-figure sum for the ‘sportswash’ sponsorship deal  Injured British troops competing in Prince Harry’s Invictus Games are to wear the logo of the UK’s biggest arms exporter in an ‘immoral’ sponsorship deal condemned by veterans and humanitarian campaigners.Members of the Invictus UK team will wear shirts with the logo of BAE Systems for the first time when they compete at trials in Sheffield later this month after the company paid a six-figure sum.The arms manufacturer has sold billions of pounds of weaponry around the world, including to Saudi Arabia for its war in Yemen, which began in 2015.Since then, many thousands of civilians have been killed or maimed amid allegations of war crimes.Members of the Invictus UK teams will wear shirts bearing the logo of BAE systems for the first time after the company paid a six-figure sum for the ‘sportswash’ sponsorship deal. (Pictured) Prince Harry at the Invictus Games in London on September 12, 2014 The arms manufacturer has sold billions of pounds of weaponry around the world. (Pictured) Athletes compete in the Men’s 100 metres during the 2018 Invictus Games in Sydney Last night, Amnesty International accused BAE Systems of attempting to ‘sportswash’ its reputation.Former Special Forces soldier Ben Griffin, who served with the SAS in Iraq, said: ‘It seems deeply inappropriate for BAE to sponsor a team of disabled war veterans at a sporting contest when arms sold by this company to Saudi Arabia have wounded so many people, leaving them disabled.’ Prince Harry – who counts many Invictus UK members as friends – is patron of the Invictus Foundation, which is responsible for the Games.Around 350 Invictus UK competitors will wear the BAE Systems’ logo, with 65 of them then travelling to Holland for the 2020 Games.BAE Systems is heavily involved in the Yemen war, where a coalition led by Saudi Arabia is carrying out air strikes in an attempt to restore the former Yemeni government.The company has about 6,000 employees in Saudi Arabia servicing its fighter jets, missiles and other weapons used in Yemen.Former Special Forces soldier Ben Griffin, who served in Iraq, said it seemed ‘deeply inappropriate’ for BAE to sponsor the team of disabled war veterans. (Pictured) A Royal Air Force Typhoon taking off in front of a BAE systems banner in Gloucestershire There have been numerous accusations of war crimes committed by the Saudis, including the bombing of hospitals and schools.On June 20, the Court of Appeal in London ruled that the export licence granted to BAE Systems was unlawful because the British Government had failed to assess whether the Saudi-led coalition had violated international humanitarian law in Yemen.Existing licences between Britain and Saudi Arabia are under review, but remain in place.Kate Allen, director of Amnesty International UK, said: ‘This is yet another example of big business using sporting sponsorship to sportswash its reputation. ‘During more than four years of devastating war in Yemen, the Saudi Arabia-led coalition has used British-made bombs that have killed thousands in indiscriminate air strikes that have hit hospitals, schools, weddings and funerals. ‘Is that really who Prince Harry wants to be seen supporting the Invictus Games?’ Royal author Penny Junor said: ‘It is an unfortunate choice of partner.The Invictus Games was such a brilliant idea and is such a fantastic concept – Prince Harry at his best and Britain at its best. ‘It was something to be so proud of and I fear that this might just taint the whole thing.’ Andrew Smith, director of the Campaign Against Arms Trade, added: ‘This is a totally inappropriate decision and a grotesque example of an immoral company whitewashing its appalling practices.If BAE Systems wants to help war veterans, then the best thing it could do is to stop pouring weapons into war zones and fuelling war and conflict. ‘Last month Prince Harry spoke of the need to remove the scourge of landmines. ‘If he wants to promote peace then he should consider how he feels about the involvement of the UK’s biggest arms companies in an event like this. ‘It would very hard to think of a less appropriate partner than BAE Systems – it is akin to having a cigarette company sponsoring Cancer Research or having Dracula sponsor a blood bank.’ A BAE Systems spokesman said: ‘We are proud to be the presenting partner of Invictus UK and of the opportunity it presents to support the competitors who have made significant personal sacrifices in service to our nation.’ An Invictus UK spokesman said: ‘BAE Systems’ long-standing commitment to our veterans and personnel at home and abroad makes them well-placed to support Invictus UK.’  Source: Read Full Article .

Morocco, Rising African Power- Le Point writes

Royal The North Africa Post

Morocco has strengthened its position in Africa as a rising power thanks to the vision of King Mohammed VI, writes French magazine Le Point on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the rule of the Moroccan monarch.
'Morocco has strengthened its position in Africa as a rising power thanks to the vision of King Mohammed VI, writes French magazine Le Point on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the rule of the Moroccan monarch.In an in-depth issue, the magazine dedicated 14 pages to take stock of the developments that took place in Morocco over the last two decades.It also shed light on the regional context, notably the two-speed Maghreb region between the dynamism of Morocco under the rule of King Mohammed VI and the lethargy of Algeria, worsened by political and economic uncertainties. “In twenty years, we note a stark contrast between the two brother rivals of the Maghreb,” writes le point pointing the succession crises of bedridden Bouteflika which left the state in a “chaotic state” while Morocco reports “enviable” performances at the political and economic levels.The oil and gas rich Algeria failed to keep pace with Morocco which “had to build using its own means and banking on its centuries-old history” as a sovereign state.The writer of the article also pointed to the multipartism experience and the rise of moderate Islamists to power in Morocco after democratic elections following the 2011 protests and constitutional reform.At the social level, several achievements were highlighted by Le Point, notably efforts to empower women, which placed Morocco on top of North African countries in that regard by the World Bank ranking.Yet, he noted that much remains to be done to achieve inheritance equality and fight all forms of discrimination against women.Another salient feature of the special Le Point issue on Morocco was Tanger Med port, which has been opened few days ago with an increased container capacity of 9 million, the largest in the Mediterranean. “Tanger Med, the largest port in Africa,” is a giant achievement and the beating heart of the Moroccan economy, writes le Point. “Today the world’s largest ships with a capacity of up to 20,000 containers dock on the terminals of the port,” said Le Point, citing the latest tools and technology used by the port.The port was the fruit of a “Royal vision,” and was achieved for a total investment of €8 billion over ten years, it said.Other edifices and flagship projects also drew the attention of Le Point such as Africa’s fastest train linking Tangier to Casablanca as well as the great theatre of Casablanca.At the intangible heritage level, Le Point lauded Morocco’s religious tolerance model as well as the kingdom’s efforts domestically and internationally to champion coexistence and multiculturalism. .
