It's the steamy coast of south east Africa 1824, Port Natal to be exact. It's now called eThekweni from the Zulu word for port itheku, although some say it is actually from the word emateku meaning the one-testicled thing. It of course was not a port during pre-settler times and original and ancient local name for this bay was isiBubulungu – that was what locals called it in 1824 - isiBubulungu means membership. So I suppose we could call it eThekweni iNatali just for fun. To further complicate the nomenclature, Port Natal was not a port back in 1824, it was a bay with a swooping sandy beach and a dangerous bar across its entrance that produced huge standing waves. People have lived near this bay for more than 100 000 years, and the last people before the settlers arrived were pre-Zulu. Then in 1497 Vasco da Gama sailed up the coast from the south and called the whole coastline Natal which means Christmas in Portuguese. That's because it was the Christmas period as he passed Natal trying to find the most direct route to the spice islands and India. Sailing back and forth along this part of the coast were traders. By 1824 ships such as the Leven, Barracouta and Cockburn were captained by Captain WFW Owen who had taken to the region. Others were Commodore Nourse, who was commander at Simon's town and who'd headed off in 1822 in the Andromache to meet Owen. These were adventurers who wanted to make their names and fortune from this unique part of the world. Nourse's brother Henry heard of their tales and being well off, decided to sponsor an upcoming business venture to Port Natal. By March 1823 Owen was back in Delagoa Bay and bumped into a ship called the Sincapore from Calcutta, and the Orange Grove owned by Henry Nourse. Owen's crew began to die from malaria, and he left after press ganging 12 black crew from the nearby villages. It was a thousand kilometer trip to Port Elizabeth, when Owen met up with two more ships that are to feature in the story of Port Natal. One was the Jane, the other, the Salisbury. There is an island in Durban harbour which is called Salisbury island and named after this ship. The Salisbury's captain was James Saunders King, a crucial character in our tale. These two, Farewell and King, formed a tight pair speculating on possible maritime business. They had bought a 400 ton ship called the Princess Charlotte, then sold it earning a profit. A third character in this part of our story – a man who was to marry into the Zulu clans and whose family now dominate part of KwaZulu Natal, Henry Francis Fynn, pops up. Fynn and Farewell chartered the Salisbury from King, and began to sail between Rio de Janeiro, the West Indies, Mauritius.

Meghan's first podcast finally drops and a new school for Cambridge childrenAfter a very, very long wait the first episode of Meghan Markle's Spotify podcast - Archetypes - has finally dropped. Zoe Forsey and Russell Myers share their thoughts on the 58-minute audio, which is an interview with Serena Williams. In the debut episode, Meghan reveals Archie had a near escape from a fire in his bedroom during the royal tour of South Africa. The other big news of the week is an announcement from Kensington Palace about Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis's new Windsor school - Lambrook. We discuss everything we know about the very, very fancy school so far as well as the Cambridges' new home.
Even though King George III had 13 living children, in 1817, he only had a single legitimate grandchild: Princess Charlotte. And then the unthinkable happened: Princess Charlotte died in childbirth and the Hanovers were left without an heir. Suddenly, all of George III's unmarried adult children were in a race to find eligible princesses and have children to carry on the family business.

Introduction: Minutes 0 to 5:30 We'll have an episode out next week and will be off on August 20th. I went axe throwing and I hated it! Chandra's cat was playing with a lizard. Royals: Minutes 5:30 to 19 We heard that Prince Charles accepted a million pounds from the bin Laden family in 2013. This comes after news that Charles got 2.5 million pounds in cash in literal suitcases between 2011 to 2015 from a shady Qatari politician. Charles' excuse was that his charity accepted the money, despite the fact that he met with the bin Laden family and brokered the deal. His justification was that it would be rude to turn down the money. It's not likely there will be a criminal bribery investigation. We talk about a blind item story we chose not to cover directly. Instead we linked to coverage from Lainey and Just Jared. The most interesting angle about that was the BI suggested that the prince has moved on from his former mistress to a new girlfriend who is London-based. William and Kate went to the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham with Princess Charlotte this week. The big news was that Kate wasn't wearing her engagement ring, although she's still wearing her wedding ring. We also heard that, like their appearance at Wimbledon, they arrived separately. William and Charlotte took a helicopter there and Kate took the train, where she chatted with a child. It really looks like they're living apart now. Kate is also covering People Magazine with a sugary story about how she's learned so much from Queen Elizabeth and is ready to be queen. It's all about Kate because covers with William don't sell. There's a new documentary coming to HBO called The Princess, which just is archival footage of Princess Diana. The BBC agreed last week to never again air footage from Princess Diana's Panorama interview after pressure from Prince William. The Dyson investigation, which found that Diana was tricked by Martin Bashir to give the interview, was completed in May, 2021. The BBC was recently sued by Tiggy Legge-Bourke, a royal nanny whom Diana claimed had an affair with Charles. Prince William mischaracterized that interview after the Dyson investigation. Diana's biographer, Andrew Morton, gave a recent interview stating that Diana didn't say anything to Bashir she hadn't already told her friends. Omid Scobie said the same thing in his column, that William is trying to muzzle his late mother and that the royal family still has the same issues Diana brought up. Dane Cook: Minutes 19 to 22 Dane Cook is a 50-year-old comic who was in a movie with Jessica Simpson and is known for stealing jokes. He just got engaged to a 23-year-old woman named Kelsi Taylor who he's been with for five years, so from the minute she was legal. People are really side-eyeing their relationship now that they're engaged because he mentioned them being “friends first” and meeting her at one of his game nights before she was 18. At least she has a job and friends outside of the relationship. I play a segment from Zoom where we talked about this. Comments of the Week: Minutes 22 to end My comment of the week is from TarteAuCitron on the post about Donald Trump burying Ivana on his golf course in New Jersey. Chandra's comment of the week is from dina on the post about Kansas voters upholding abortion rights. Thanks for listening bitches!

The royal family is facing a row with YouTube after a video it says breaches the Cambridge family's privacy was viewed by tens of thousands of people despite attempts to block it.The video, which was viewed more than 20,000 times on Monday, shows the Duke of Cambridge confronting a photographer after he was filmed on a bike ride with his family near Sandringham, Norfolk.William, 40, is seen remonstrating with a man videoing him, while his wife and three children are off-camera nearby.In the video, William is seen calling someone, presumed to be security, on his mobile phone and saying to the man: "If you want to have this altercation we can have this altercation."The man claims he wasn't following the family to which a furious William replies: "Yes you are, you are stalking around here looking for our children."William then references an incident on Saturday where the man also followed the family while on a bike ride and lashes out when the man denies following them."You are outrageous, you are disgusting, you really are. How dare you behave like that."Kensington Palace has responded by arguing it was a breach of the family's privacy. The short video was uploaded four days ago, more than a year after the incident occurred.It underlines the significant challenges facing the royal family in the online era, where rules followed by the traditional media do not apply.Kensington Palace says the film is a breach of privacy, with the duke on a private bike ride with his wife and three children, who were present but blurred out in the video.It is understood staff are seeking the removal of the video. On Monday, the three-minute-long video was still available on YouTube, with a version circulating on TikTok as well.Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. Photo / Getty ImagesThe traditional British print media does not publish photographs or videos of the royal family in private circumstances, being particularly sensitive to images of Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.The duke, who watched his mother's experience with the paparazzi as a schoolboy, has spent years finessing an arrangement in which he authorises a small number of photographs of the children each year in recognition of their future public roles, while insisting on their total privacy the rest of the time.But images of the children are regularly posted on social media, and sold to European publications working under different laws and press watchdogs.The duke has previously been highly critical of social media firms and their approach to fake news, privacy issues and cyber-bullying, accusing them of failing to take the issues seriously.The latest video was filmed in January 2021 near the Cambridges' Anmer Hall home where the duke, duchess and their three children were riding their bikes along a country lane.It shows the duke confronting a photographer who claimed to have been in the area on public roads only looking for the Saturday Sandringham shoot.It is understood that Kensington Palace has asked for it to be removed from the platforms, in line with their usual policy about privacy.Staff have previously been successful in appealing for unauthorised photographs of the children to be taken down.The duke has previously warned of the dangers of social media networks and what he saw as the disinclination of their executives to deal with a range of problems which affected users."I am very concerned though that on every challenge they face – fake news, extremism, polarisation, hate speech, trolling, mental health, privacy and bullying – our tech leaders seem to be on the back foot," he said in 2018."Their self-image is so grounded in their positive power for good that they seem unable to engage in constructive discussion about the social problems that they are creating."A spokesman for YouTube has not yet commented.- with Daily Telegraph
Now that the confetti has settled on the Platinum Jubbly, we're looking back at all of the major moments from the big weekend. The Sussexes returned from California, and even had a special birthday celebration for Lilibet, while the Cambridge kids were front and centre for many of the royal events, including Prince George and Princess Charlotte's first walkabout, and a scene-stealing balcony appearance by Prince Louis. Elsewhere, Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles paid a visit to Albert Square, and the royals managed to weaponise the universal appeal of Paddington Bear in a video with the Queen. Plus, we discuss the Queen's partial absence — and Prince Andrew's total absence — from the festivities, and what it means for the monarchy going forward. Thanks so much to our fabulous Eastenders correspondent Shy Charles, and thank you to everyone who has listened over the past three years. #AbolishTheMonarchy

On today's show, we have Royal Expert, Commentator, and founder of The Monarchists (Themonarchists.com) Thomas J. Mace-Archer-Mills. He's the visionary creator of EIIR: The Platinum Record, a Jubilee Anthem, that was released on the Queen's 96th Birthday (4/21/22), honoring Her Majesty for her unprecedented 70-year reign. Thomas will be speaking about this and all things The Royal Family. Thomas is the Founder, Visionary, and Director of the British Monarchists Society, President of the Centre for British Royal Studies, Editor-in-Chief of Crown & Country Magazine, creator of Crown & Country Radio, a Freeman of the City of London and a member of the Order of St. Thomas of Acon. In addition to the aforementioned, Thomas runs his own consultancy group. As a Royal Consultant for Protocol to the Princely House of Their Highnesses, Prince Waldermar, Princess Antonia, and Prince Mario-Max of Schaumburg-Lippe (a branch of Europe's oldest Royal family going back to the Viking Kings and the Royal Household of Denmark since 936. His Highness Prince Waldermar of Schaumburg-Lippe is in the line of succession to the British throne), Thomas further works with other international companies, businesses and Royal households. Mace-Archer-Mills has further carried out consultancy duties for, and not limited to, the Serbian Royal family on a series of occasions, most notably the 2017 Royal wedding of Prince Philip of Serbia. Professionally, Thomas is a Consultant, Royal historian, award-winning author, media personality, and educational speaker. Thomas has been a radio presenter for London's W!zard Radio, which is broadcast internationally to over 15 countries, where he had several different shows and themes over five years. Thomas' last show was dedicated to helping the youth of the world overcome issues, challenges and negativity which face the daily lives of his listeners on “Therapy with Thomas Mills”. Thomas addressed the Annual General Meeting of the Australian Monarchist League in Sydney during the Summer of 2015 to thousands of members and has just recently lectured for Model Westminster and the Young Adults Forum in Parliament in February of 2017. In April of 2017, Thomas undertook a tour of America where he opened the Royal Society of St George – California Branch, completed several meet and greets and further attended events and book signings for his new release: “Their Majesties' Mixers – when they reign, they pour”, which has since won the Gourmand Award. In 2019 Thomas created the internet-based radio station, Crown & Country Radio" and continues to broadcast on his own specially themed shows. Thomas is well versed in the International Business Auditorium as well as Royal history, with degrees and certificates from American and European universities in History, International Political Economy, International Business Administration, International Relations, Humanities and Political Science. In honor of Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee in 2012, Thomas penned his first book with permission of the Palace, to which he was granted the use of the official Diamond Jubilee Logo. “To The Queen: A Royal Drinkology” sold 5,000 copies in the months following the central Jubilee weekend. Over the past decade, Thomas has worked (and still works) tirelessly on behalf of Crown and Country, building the British Monarchist Society and Foundation, which has become the leading organization for not only British, but international Monarchists which he funded himself. He has worked hard to incorporate like-minded people to be a part of this much-revered society within the United Kingdom, in which cumulatively, under Thomas' direction, brings British traditions to the next level. Thomas has been busy perfecting and readying his team to organize and carry out international celebrations for Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II and the House of Windsor for the Platinum Jubilee in 2022. Thomas and the BMS hosted several events for The Diamond Jubilee in 2012, The Diamond Anniversary of the Coronation, the births of Prince George and Princess Charlotte and the celebration of the longest reign: when The Queen's reign exceeded that of Queen Victoria on September 9, 2015. This is an exciting and challenging time for Thomas and his team, and it is with great commitment, energy and foresight that he is looking forward to producing an educational celebration within his latest project, “Crown and Country Magazine” that will leave a lasting legacy for future generations of Britons. In his spare time (which is very limited), Thomas enjoys traveling, horseback riding, the arts, theatre, music, fine dining, reading and writing.

Princess Charlotte of Wales was England's grand hope for the future, directly in line for the throne after the infirm King George III and the buffoonish Prince Regent George IV. She fought for her independence, for the ability to choose her own husband, and ultimately succeeded. But her love story was short-lived.

The death of Princess Charlotte, daughter of the future George IV, in 1817 due to complications following the birth of a stillborn son, was a personal tragedy for the family but it didn't end there. The knock-on impact of Charlotte's death was far-reaching, the family's grief was echoed across the country but beyond that, there was now a succession crisis worse than any in English history. There was not one surviving, legitimate, grandchild of George III. The loss of Charlotte and her baby wiped out two generations of legitimate heirs. It was the 'race for a new heir' which led to the birth of Victoria, later Queen Victoria. Yet, many people have not heard of Charlotte. Type her name in search engines and they will return, understandably, countless pictures of the daughter of Prince William and Kate Middleton. Such is the tragedy and significance of Princess Charlotte's story that it is one we should all know. You can also watch this episode on YouTube. Watch the episode on Princess Charlotte.

"Just stick me in the back of a Land Rover and drive me to Windsor," he is said to have requested.George's toothy grin shows a cheeky side to the eldest child of William and Kate. Awww mate they look sad.TRH Prince William, Prince George and The Duchess of Cambridge. pic.twitter.com/VCue5srV4P— Isa (@isaguor) July 11, 2021 The Telegraph reports the nearly 8-year-old will celebrate his birthday privately.

Harry and Meghan's announcement of the arrival of their daughter Lilibet surprised royal watchers and sent the world's media scrambling to react.Much of the focus has been on the name: Lilibet "Lili" Diana Mountbatten-Windsor.The name is the Queen's family nickname and hit the headlines again recently in the wake of Prince Philip's death, when it was revealed that he referred to her by the nickname throughout their long marriage.After their wedding, the Duke of Edinburgh wrote the Queen Mother: "Lilibet is the only 'thing' in the world which is absolutely real to me."Her Majesty even signed off with the moniker on the handwritten note she placed on the Duke of Edinburgh's coffin.The nickname was coined when then-Princess Elizabeth was just a toddler and struggling to pronounce her own name.Her grandfather King George V then affectionately started calling her "Lilibet" in an imitation of her attempts.Lili's middle name, Diana, pays tribute to Harry's mother.Diana has loomed large over Harry's life since the 12-year old Prince was robbed of his mother in 1997 when she died in a car crash.When Harry and Meghan first announced that she was pregnant with their second child, they made the announcement on the 37th anniversary of Diana's announcement that she was pregnant with Harry.Diana's dedication to charity has informed Harry and Meghan's own charitable works, exemplified by a quote shared by the couple on social media in 2019.The quote reads: "Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you."Harry has been raising his son Archie with stories of his late mother.In his recent AppleTV+ series, The Me You Can't See, he revealed that one of his son's first words was "grandma".While the announcement of Lili's name was a surprise for most, the signs have been there that the couple have been considering it for some time.While bookies were considering Diana and even Philippa as potential first names for the royal, a chance encounter with a group of young girls in Birkenhead, England, showed that their minds might have been elsewhere.At the 2019 school visit, undertaken while Meghan was pregnant with Archie, Harry asked a mother how she spelled her daughter Lily's name.Harry and American actor Meghan Markle married at Windsor Castle in May 2018. Their son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was born a year later.In early 2020, Meghan and Harry announced they were quitting royal duties and moving to North America, citing what they said were the unbearable intrusions and racist attitudes of the British media. They live in Montecito, a posh area near Santa Barbara, California.The birth comes after Harry and Meghan's explosive TV interview with Oprah Winfrey in March. The couple described painful discussions about the colour of their first child's skin, losing royal protection and the intense pressures that led her to contemplate suicide.Buckingham Palace said the allegations of racism made by the couple were "concerning" and would be addressed privately.Last year, Meghan revealed that she had a miscarriage in July 2020, giving a personal account of the traumatic experience in hope of helping others.Despite leaving royal duties, Harry's place in the order of succession to the throne remains.The first seven places remain unchanged: Prince Charles, Prince William, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis, Prince Harry, and his son Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.Lilibet's birth moves Prince Andrew, who was born second in line in 1960, down to ninth place.- Additional reporting, AP

Alexandra Joel's latest book The Royal Correspondent is one for fans of The Crown TV series – revisiting as it does swinging London in the 60s, seen through the eyes of a young Australian journalist, coming from the wrong side of the tracks, promoted to covering the British royal family. Hi there, I'm your host Jenny Wheeler and in today's Binge Reading episode Alexandra talks about the scandalous family story – one from her own family – that got her started in fiction, her father's rags to riches story, and how, having discovered fiction writing as her third career, she doesn't plan to change to a fourth any time soon. Six things you'll learn from this Joys of Binge Reading episode: How her father's amazing life inspired The Royal CorrespondentHer grandmother's scandalous escapeGrace Wood - a remarkable Australian in ParisThe magic of Mary QuantWhy she loves her third career The writers she loves - including Rose Tremain and Benjamin Black Where to find Alexandra Joel: Website : https://www.alexandrajoel.com/ Facebook: @AlexandraJoelAuthor Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/alexandrajoelauthor/ What follows is a "near as" transcript of our conversation, not word for word but pretty close to it, with links to important mentions. But now, here's Alexandra. Jenny Wheeler: Hello there, Alexandra, and welcome to the show. It's so good to have you with us. Alexandra Joel: I am delighted to be talking to you, Jenny. Alexandra Joel - Australian historic fiction author Jenny Wheeler: You've had a stellar career in journalism, and we'll talk about that a little later, but you have now very successfully transitioned to writing fiction and your most recent book, The Royal Correspondent, is an entertaining revisiting of 1960s London through the eyes of a young Australian journalist, Blaise Hill. It's one for fans of The Crown for starters, isn't it? As we've said, you started as a journalist yourself. How did you make that transition to being a novelist? Introducing author Alexandra Joel Alexandra Joel: As a child, I learned to read very young and I was immediately captured by the concept of story. I read and read. I used to tell stories to my classmates, but I was so in awe of novelists, I didn't think I could ever do it, so I stuck to nonfiction. When I wrote my memoir about my great-grandmother Rosetta, something shifted within me. To set the scene, Rosetta was a happily married (so we thought) very young woman in Edwardian Melbourne with a husband and a five-year-old child, and she ran away with a half-Chinese fortune teller called Zeno the Magnificent. The pair completely reinvented themselves. He said he was a distinguished doctor from Japan; she said she was American. Alexandra's great-grandmother and Zeno together - Picture ABC. They went over to London and they became the toast of the town. I have letters from royalty and wonderful telegrams saying things like, please come and stay at my villa in Cap Martin because Princess Charlotte will be there, and Empress Eugenie is popping in. But the whole thing was invented. They led an incredible life, but she never saw her child again, and that child was my grandmother. A scandalous grandmother's story When I wrote the book, I used two voices. One was their life, told using the techniques of fiction because after all, whoever knew what they were saying – was it true, was it false? Nobody knew. The other was grounded in fiction because it was the story of me looking for her. When I finished the book and it had a very good reception, I started thinking, maybe I could channel my great grandmother. She led a life which was filled with glamour and adventure but most of all with invention. I thought maybe I can do that too, except I'm going to do it a little more safely and conservatively through books. And it all started happening. Rosetta - A Scandalous True Story by Alexandra Joel
The Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Oprah Winfrey interview was a strategic PR move for the new American residents. This sets the stage for a huge surge in interest for the couple to capitalize on to create a legacy separate of the British Royal Family (including Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, Prince William, Kate Middleton, their nephews Prince George & Prince Louie, and niece Princess Charlotte) in the United States of America. Accusations of racism by "The Firm" (Royal Family), disappointment with titles of their children Prince Archie & a soon to be born second child, a girl, along with being denied paid for security by both the family and taxpayers of the USA, all play a part in this story. This denial of financial help led to the couple signing lucrative deals with Netflix and Spotify. After ratings for their content seemed to be less than stellar, Oprah Winfrey seems to have come in to save her new Montecito neighbors' career in America with this interview. All this leads to THEE reason I believe Americas should keep their eyes peeled for what this couple does from now as stated in this video.
