The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who sealed their thriving romance with a trip to Botswana, confirm plans to return to Africa.
I hear that officials in South Africa have been told that they are expecting a visit from Prince Harry, Meghan and baby Archie later this year.
& # 39; People have been informed that the duke and duchess will come & # 39 ;, a source claims. & # 39; Early preparations have begun. & # 39;
Harry, currently in Italy on his second trip abroad since Archie was born 19 days ago, is expected to be accompanied by Meghan and their baby when they visit South Africa and a number of other countries on the continent.
The duke and duchess of Sussex, who sealed their thriving romance with a trip to Botswana, confirm plans to return to Africa – this time with son Archie. The journey is seen as a possible prelude to a much longer stay in Africa for a few months next year
The journey is seen as a possible prelude to a much longer stay in Africa for a few months next year.
Harry has a deep love for Africa and explains that it is the place where I feel more like myself than anywhere else in the world.
After only two dates with Meghan, who was then an actress in the legal drama Suits, Harry hurled that she decided to take her to Botswana to enjoy five nights of camping under the African stars.
He later said he felt the & # 39; stars were aligned & # 39; when he met the American.
The couple returned the following summer, and the South African state was still very in his mind when the Prince began designing Meghan & # 39; s engagement ring: in the center is a Botswana diamond.
He has often been to South Africa and his former ex-girlfriend, Chelsy Davy, who was born in Zimbabwe, went to the University of Cape Town.
Harry & # 39; s uncle, Earl Spencer, lived in Cape Town during his first marriage, with Victoria Lockwood, and some of his cousins stay there.
A spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will only say: & # 39; Nothing has been confirmed about upcoming trips. & # 39;
Location, location, location host Kirstie Allsopp may be an expert on real estate, but it's her cousin, Millie, who has the tailoring skills.
The sympathetic 29-year-old daughter of the former antique dealer John Allsopp, Kirstie's uncle, is launching an environmentally conscious fashion label next month.
& # 39; It is called Usisi, that my sister Kathryn and I started together, & # 39; Millie tells me. & # 39; I was a buyer and my sister is a designer. We make contemporary women's clothing and handbags.

The collection is designed in London and produced in sustainably operated factories in Vietnam and Turkey using all-natural fabrics and no plastic packaging. & # 39;
Millie, born in London, who graduated from the Parsons School of Design in New York, also has exciting news in her love life: she is engaged to the handsome German entrepreneur Constantin Nagel, 40.
& # 39; We met in New York, & # 39; Millie whispers. & # 39; The wedding is in July and I am wearing an Emilia Wickstead dress. & # 39;
What better time for Kirstie & # 39; s long-term partner, project developer Ben Anderson, to ask the question?
He has been married twice, has had the sudden disappearance of his father and stood with his brother in a dock during an eight-month fraud test.
But it seems that at 62, Ian Maxwell, the son of disgraced tycoon Robert, has found peace of mind – in the company of an eminent Whitehall mandarin.
He gets out with Cecilia French, 58, director of Public Protection at the home office.
& # 39; Cecilia has been brilliant & # 39 ;, says a friend. Maxwell is alienated from the second wife Tara and was previously married to the American model Laura Plumb.

While Theresa May's husband, Philip, was a tough support during her premiership, former Labor leader Ed Miliband admitted he deplores the role of his wife, Justine Thornton.
& # 39; If I did it again, I would do it differently & # 39 ;, Miliband tells Alastair Campbell and his daughter Grace in their new podcast, Football, Feminism And Everything In Between.
& # 39; Things like her coming on stage after a party conference speech, I shouldn't have done that.
I also underestimated the stress, anxiety and nightmare it was for Justine. It will be hard for Philip May now. I was not grateful enough. & # 39;

& # 39; I am not a big fan of one of those expensive places you go and they come and give you this little bit on a huge plate, & # 39; says Prince Harry's ex-girlfriend. & # 39; I just don't get it. & # 39;
Cressie, the daughter of businessman Jeffrey Bonas and former model Lady Mary-Gaye Curzon, adds: & # 39; The plates are covered with lots of different exotic creams and beautiful flowers.
I never really understood that. Sometimes there are five forks on the table and I think, "Oh, my god, which one do I start with." & # 39;
What a relief that she did not have to face all banquets of the palace state. . .
Nigel Havers cast Downton Abbey star Hugh Bonneville as his father, even though he is 12 years younger than him.
& # 39; I am directing a movie called Butterfly On A Wheel about my father and me when I was a child, & # 39; he tells me during the Chelsea Flower Show.
& # 39; We're going to film in the fall. & # 39;
Lord Havers was a lawyer who defended Mick Jagger and Keith Richards when they were arrested for drugs in 1967.
The case became a celebre cause, with Jacob Rees-Mogg & # 39; s father, William, writing a celebrated editorial for The Times with the headline: & # 39; Who breaks a butterfly on a wheel? & # 39 ;, Who the Stenen helped successfully appeal against their beliefs.
Freddie Fox hit the headlines when he suggested he could be bisexual and explained: "Most of my life so far has been like a heterosexual, but who knows what will happen?"
I heard that the son of The Day Of The Jackal, Edward Fox, has found love with a woman. She is Tanya Reynolds, who plays uncomfortable Lily Iglehart in Netflix & # 39; s worldwide hit comedy Sex Education.
Freddie, 30, tells me that he met Tanya, 27, in the film set of the Fanny Lye Delivered period drama, which will be released later this year. She previously appeared to his sister, Silent Witness star Emilia Fox, in Sky One drama Delicious.
Although he comes from one of our most illustrious acting families, Freddie is in no hurry to become a father. He tells me: & # 39; I don't feel pressure to extend the Fox Dynasty – it's the last thing I feel pressure on. & # 39;

The Duchess of Cambridge enjoys a baby boom in her environment.
While Kate, 37, is hoping for baby 4, as I reported this month, her friend Lady Sybilla Rufus Isaacs is expecting her fifth child at the age of 38 with gardener Charlie Hart.
& # 39; Five is a little crazy & # 39 ;, says Sybilla & # 39; s sister, Lady Natasha Rufus Isaacs, who has two of her with Kate & ex 39; s ex-boyfriend, lawyer Rupert Finch. & # 39; I no longer have any plans right now – I have my hands full. & # 39;
Meanwhile, jockey Sam Waley-Cohen, who played an important role in reuniting William and Kate after they parted in 2007, is celebrating the arrival of his third child. His wife, Annabel, has just given birth to a son, Alexander.
Come on, Wills!

But the US-born Heather is waiting for them to consume their romance. & # 39; I have not had sex with Ross & # 39 ;, she tells me during the cocktail reception Women In Film International in Cannes, with a remarkable frankness.
