Prince Harry, 30, has issued an unprecedented statement confirming the identity of her new girlfriend, U.S. actress Meghan Markle and condemning her treatment following intense media coverage of their fledgling romance. He said the past week had “seen a line crossed”. Saturated coverage of his burgeoning romance had indeed filled the tabloid press, online news websites and social media. In the press release issued by his communications secretary Jason Knauf, Kensington Palace acknowledged the prince’s well-documented tensions with the press stating: “He has rarely taken formal action on the very regular publication of fictional stories that are written about him and he has worked hard to develop a professional relationship with the media, focused on his work and the issues he cares about.” He has had a history of unflattering tabloid coverage when he dressed as a Nazi captain at a fancy dress party and in 2012 when he was photographed naked during a debauched party in Las Vegas.

Purple patch: Scroll either way to see the Queen ride the Piccadilly line to open Heathrow extension in 1977 and unveiling the new Elizabeth line at Bond Street in 2016 Queen Elizabeth II seemed genuinely pleased at getting her name on the iconic London Underground roundel as the new multibillion-pound Crossrail line was named after her. Her Majesty, Britain’s longest-reigning monarch visited the under-construction Crossrail station at Bond Street as the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, announced that the new railway will be known as the Elizabeth line in her honour. A carefully-kept secret for such a long-running project which surprisingly did not leak, a feat in itself. The Elizabeth line with its royal purple livery is expected to transform travel across the city and will see 24 trains per hour running in each direction when the central section of the Transport for London (TfL) run railway opens in 2018. The Queen was presented with a commemorative Elizabeth roundel, and met a wide range of people involved in the construction of Crossrail, Europe’s largest infrastructure project. This marks the …
