The most controversial TV programme for years began on Sunday night, at 8pm on Channel 4, with a giggling voice asking: “Is that thing on?” Even before viewers saw the blushing cheeks and familiar up-sweep of eyes under the fringe, the posh-flirty voice clearly identified Diana, Princess of Wales.
For many of her supporters, Diana: In Her Own Words is a thing they wish had not been on. The film includes videotapes recorded by the voice coach Peter Settelenin 1992 and 1993 during sessions to improve Diana’s public speaking, but in which she spoke frankly about private matters. They had been shown before in the US, but it was their first airing in the UK.

London was struck by tragedy yesterday after what’s being treated as a terrorist attack left at least four dead and 20 injured.

Everyone keeps saying that Prince Hot Ginge and Meghan Markle are going to get engaged by the end of the summer, and no, that high-pitched wail that just stabbed your eardrums wasn’t from me loudly crying while thinking about the day that I’ll watch my beautiful(ly delusional) dreams go up in flames as I burn the assless cropped tuxedo I was planning to wear during my wedding to PHG.
If Meghan Markle becomes Duchess Meghan, she’ll be way too busy waving and smiling alongside Duchess Kate at the opening of whatever to do acting stuff. But a source tells E! News that Meghan would’ve probably quit acting even if she wasn’t with PHG. Uh huh…

The EU defended the demand as it argued Britain had unpaid budget commitments, pension liabilities and loan guarantees to honour.
