Prince Harry, Royality
Prince Harry has opened up about being on the brink of a "complete mental breakdown" on numerous occasions while dealing with grief over Princess Diana's death. As the 20th anniversary of his mother's death approaches, Prince Harry gave a candid interview for the Britain's Daily Telegraph podcast Mad World, talking about coping with grief, volunteering with recovering veterans and setting up his charity Heads Together with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Prince Harry said while he was now in a "good place" mentally, he spent almost two decades suppressing his grief, "sticking my head in the sand, refusing to ever think about my mum".

Queen Elizabeth II is currently battling a "heavy cold" that has forced the monarch to skip annual royal holiday celebrations, including Christmas and New Year services, giving rise to speculation that the longest reigning monarch might have to leave her royal duties due to health concerns. She is the second woman to rule the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, which formed in 1801 after a unified Kingdom of Great Britain merged with the Kingdom of Ireland. The only other woman in that place was her great-great-grandmother Queen Victoria, who took the throne in 1837 when she was 18 and ruled until her death in 1901. She was the last monarch of Britain from the House of Hanover, and was succeeded by her son, King Edward VII, who belonged to her husband's House of Saxe-Coburg and...

Catherine Duchess of Cambridge, Prince George, Royality
Prince George will turn 3 in just a few weeks, which means those royal engagements will soon be taking up his precious time. Believe it or not, George's tour of the Royal International Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford on Friday morning is his first-ever engagement in the United Kingdom as a member of the royal family. The visit had everything: planes, helicopters, a recycled but amazing look on mummy Kate (a blue Stella McCartney dress and navy blue Smythe blazer), the cutest pair of baby blue noise-canceling headphones, daddy showing off helicopters he used to fly, and a princely tantrum (he is a toddler, after all). So many photos. Is there anything more adorable than Prince George's navy blue shoes? His royal wave? As a reward for scrolling through all these...
