PRINCE Harry summed up the mood
of the nation yesterday as he described
his new wife Meghan as “absolutely
stunning”.
The happy couple left St George’s
Chapel in Windsor Castle on Saturday
to glorious sunshine and thousands
cheering them on.
Harry
and
Meghan’s
fairytale
romance has lifted the nation’s spirits
and the wedding, which has seen the
monarchy take a big step into the
modern age, was nothing short of a
triumph.
The young prince made a special
point of thanking his new wife’s
wedding dress designer for making
her look “absolutely incredible”, it
emerged yesterday.
British designer Clare Waight Keller
kept her wedding dress commission
secret for five months.
Asked about the moment Meghan
was able to look at herself dressed in
the mirror on Saturday, Ms Waight
Keller said: “She was just glowing.
She was absolutely radiant.
“Harry came straight up to me after
and said, ‘Oh my God, thank you,
she looks absolutely stunning’.”
The new Duke and Duchess of Sussex
left Windsor Castle yesterday after
partying until the early hours at nearby
Frogmore House.
Revellers at the black tie evening
reception enjoyed themed cocktails,
posh burgers and a spectacular
fireworks display. But the fun did not

stop there for many of the 200 guests
who were close friends and family.
Some were said to have gone on to an
after-party at trendy London nightspot,
the Chiltern Firehouse.
American Meghan, who gave up her
job as an actress to marry her prince, is
expected to choose the patronages and
causes she wants to champion.
The new Duchess has already
outlined her plans for the future on the
Royal Family’s official website.
Meghan’s page, which lists her record
of campaigning on social issues,
includes a quote from when she spoke
at a United Nations conference in
New York in 2015: “I am proud to be a
woman and a feminist.”
She is expected to devote much
of her time towards championing
women.
Millions of viewers watching the
wedding hailed Bishop Michael Curry,
the first black presiding bishop of the
Episcopal Church in the United States,
as the surprise star of the show.
Although some members of the Royal
Family appeared to be stunned by his
passionate 13-minute speech, royal
biographer Stephen Bates said it fitted
perfectly with tradition.
He added: “King George V laid down
that those who preached to him in
church should speak for no more than
14 minutes.”

THE wedding reception may have
been an intimate affair, but several
of Harry and Meghan’s guests
shared behind-the-scenes
moments on social media.
Tennis legend Serena Williams, a
long-time close friend of Meghan,
raised eyebrows as she posed in
just a carefully folded towel as she
got ready for the big day.
She told her followers: “So, my
friend’s getting ready today, I’m up
super early…I’m so happy for her.”
She also posted a photo of herself
wearing a face mask and then later
shared her final outfit – a stunning
pink Versace gown.
She later showed herself in bed
before the evening event, saying:
“I’m really tired.”
One wedding watcher said:
“You’d think the wedding was all
about her.” Another sarcastically
tweeted: “Look at me!”
Serena later changed into
trainers, while other female
guests were given slippers in
which to dance.
Meghan’s pal Jessica Mulroney
gave a glimpse of the reception
party. She had her stylist Rachel
Renna share snaps of her inside
the glamorous soiree before the
guests headed off to dinner. She
switched into a gold cowl-back
dress after wearing a cobalt blue
number at the ceremony.
Jessica, 38, grew close to the
new Duchess of Sussex while she
was filming Suits in Toronto.
She helped to guide pageboys
and bridesmaids, including her
four-year-old daughter Ivy, into
the chapel alongside the Duchess
of Cambridge.

Plaudits for Charles after ‘darling old Harry’ speech
PRINCE Charles won plaudits
from guests at the wedding after
stepping into perform the father of
the bride’s duties and making an
endearing speech at the lunchtime
reception.
The heir to the throne, who was
asked by Meghan to step in and
9pI`Z_Xi[GXcd\i
accompany her down the aisle of
the chapel’s Quire after her father
Thomas Markle said he was too
sick to attend, spoke fondly of his
son to the 600 guests.
He said he was “very pleased to
be asked” to accompany Meghan
down the aisle in St George’s
Chapel.
When the Prince of Wales and
Meghan arrived at the altar, Harry
turned to his father and said
touchingly: “Thank you, Pa.”
But it was later when Charles
talked about Harry at the
reception in St George’s Hall in the
castle that he became emotional.
There was barely a dry eye as he
recalled feeding him a bottle of
milk, winding his infant son and
changing his nappy. He talked
about how proud he was of the
man his son had grown into now.
“My darling old Harry, I’m so happy
for you,” he said. “I’m really happy
for both of you.”
In the evening Charles hosted
the reception for 200 of the happy
couple’s closest friends and
younger relatives.

MEGHAN thanked the Royal
Family for welcoming her to
the Firm as she broke with
tradition by giving a speech
at the reception.
The Duchess of Sussex
paid a glowing tribute to her
new in-laws during the
evening reception.
The glittering event at
Frogmore House in Windsor
was hosted by Prince
Charles, for 200 guests
which included Meghan’s
mother Doria Ragland.
The Duchess of Sussex
was wearing a white
bespoke gown by Stella
McCartney as the Duke had
changed out of his military
uniform into a black tie suit.
In memory of his mother,
Harry presented Meghan
wife with an emerald-cut
aquamarine ring which
belonged to Diana, Princess
of Wales.
In his speech, Harry
referred to last minute
problems with her father
saying she had
“navigated everything
with such grace”
adding: “We make
such a great team. I
can’t wait to spend
the rest of my life
with you.”
The newlyweds
enjoyed the first
dance of the
evening to
Whitney
Houston’s hit
Wanna Dance
With
Somebody.
A number
of 80s
classics and
songs from
the 60s were
played.
Comedian
and TV host
James
Corden
compered
the function
as guests
were treated
to drinks
from the
worldthemed bar
and they
tucked into
candy floss and
dirty burgers for
midnight snacks.
One of the drinks was a
cocktail made up of ginger
and rum in a nod to Prince
Harry’s red hair entitled
When Harry Met Meghan.
The sky was illuminated
by a firework display.

THE Queen headed to church as usual the
morning after her beloved grandson’s wedding
and reception while others were probably still
tucked up in bed.
Her Majesty wore a lemon outfit as she was
chauffeured to the Royal Chapel of All Saints in
the grounds of the Royal Lodge in Windsor
Great Park.
The Queen is a regular at the morning
service and was determined to attend as
usual despite the celebrations running late
into the night.
Royal fans, who were waiting by the Windsor
Farm Shop entrance to Frogmore House, had a
glimpse of the monarch in the back seat of a
Range Rover.
Many had stayed on to catch a glimpse of the
royal party following the reception.

Fashion experts had named her as
a potential candidate for the job
after the couple got engaged in
November. However, many believed
she would appoint Ralph & Russo,
the designers of her dress for the
official engagement photos.
Meghan had contacted Ms
Waight Keller in December to see if
she would be interested in making
her wedding dress.
Ms Waight Keller said: “We had a
short meeting about it. Then I
found out in early January.
“It was an extraordinary moment
when she told me.
“It was an incredible thing to be
part of, such an historic moment
and, in fact, to have the opportunity to work with her.
“I think she loved the fact that I
was a British designer, and was
working in a house such as
Givenchy, which has its roots in a
very classical, beautiful style.”
She added: “She [Meghan] is
exactly what you see on TV. She’s
just so genuine and warm and
radiant. She’s a strong woman. She
knows what she wants, and it was
an absolute joy working with her.”
The bridal gown was designed
to look modern, simple but classic
in white with a veil embroidered
with flowers from each of the

Ms Waight Keller spoke of the
inspiration for the design of the veil,
which was held in place by Queen
Mary’s diamond bandeau. She said:
“The fact both her and Prince Harry
will be working a lot within the
Commonwealth was something
built on to be part of the day.
“I came up with the idea of maybe

MEGHAN’S hairdresser revealed the
secrets behind her elegant bridal
look yesterday and said she was a
calm and chatty bride.
Serge Normant, 52, who flew in
from New York to style Meghan’s
hair, said she showed no signs
of nerves and was “dreamy” to
work with.
The pair, who met through friends
a year ago, quickly agreed on the
timeless style they were aiming for
on the big day, creating what
Mr Normant called a bun that was
“messy in a controlled way” and
factoring in the need to design in a
tiara as well as a veil. He cited
actress Audrey Hepburn as an
inspiration for the look.
Mr Normant, pictured right,
said it took about an hour to
prepare the hair, adding:
“I am still pinching myself
this morning. It’s just one of
those moments you dream
of. I am very excited
about it. I didn’t want
through their flora and fauna. It
also meant that every single one of
those countries also journeyed up
the aisle with her.”
A large team of embroiderers
worked on it without knowing who
had ordered the dress – only a handful of people were in on the secret.
It took hundreds of hours to sew
– they stopped every 30 minutes to
wash their hands to keep the tulle
pristine. Ms Waight Keller showed
off a sample of lace from the veil
and sketches of the dress design
which she will give to Meghan.
Asked about the moment the
bride looked at herself dressed and
ready in the mirror on Saturday
morning, she said: “She was radiant
and incredibly composed. It was
quite extraordinary.”
The bride chose not to have a
maid of honour so it fell to the
designer to ensure her veil and train
Bouquet tribute to
Unknown Warrior
Meghan’s bridal bouquet lies on the Westminster Abbey tomb yesterday
MEGHAN has followed the
poignant royal tradition of
having her wedding bouquet left
at the grave of the Unknown
Warrior.
The interment at Westminster
Abbey that holds the remains of
an unidentified First World War
soldier has come to symbolise
the nation’s war dead.
The late Queen Mother began
the tradition in 1923 after her
wedding to the Duke of York,
later George VI.
She left the flowers in memory
of her brother Fergus, killed in
1915 during the global conflict.
The posy is sent to the abbey
once the pictures of the bride
and groom have been taken.
Meghan’s bouquet was tied
with a pink ribbon, and includes
scented sweet peas, jasmine and
lily of the valley. It will stay on
to do anything that was set in a time
frame. Too much volume...that would
look retro. I just wanted a loose and
easy look which is why we chose
that loose bun.”
Asked how long it took on the day,
he said: “Not that long, believe it or
not. We had to blow dry it from wet,
I would say 45 minutes to an hour.
Then they did the make-up and then
you fiddle around with it a little bit.
“It was just like the most beautiful
morning, a simple process. We woke
up early, had a little coffee and then
just went on. It was all smiles, it was
just one of those dreamy moments
to be honest. If I had to plan it
again, I would do it just the
same again.
“On the day she was calm
and chatty. She was very
happy, it was a beautiful
morning, the perfect
morning to get married,”
he said.
“No nerves. If there were
there, they didn’t show.”
looked pristine at the chapel. Stella
McCartney created the bride’s
£80,000 halter neck gown, which
she wore to the evening reception
at Frogmore House.
The British designer, 46, said: “I
am so proud and honoured to have
been chosen by the Duchess of
Sussex to make her evening gown
and represent British design.
“It has truly been one of the most
humbling moments of my career.”

the grave until it wilts. Harry and
his bride remembered his mother
Diana by selecting forget-menots, her favourite flowers.
Harry hand-picked several
from their private garden at
Kensington Palace on Friday.
Myrtle sprigs from stems
planted by Queen Victoria in
1845 also featured in the posy,
another longstanding tradition.
Sprigs were also used from
a plant grown from the myrtle in
the Queen’s wedding bouquet
in 1947.
The myrtle tradition began
when Princess Victoria, eldest
daughter of Queen Victoria, carried it at her wedding in 1858.
The beautiful flowers which
graced the royal wedding have
been shared out to charities.

MEGHAN’S
wedding
dress
designer has revealed Prince Harry
was so delighted by the stunning
£200,000 gown that he personally
thanked her after the service on
Saturday.
In an interview at Kensington
Palace, Clare Waight Keller – who
made history as the first female
artistic director at French fashion
house Givenchy – revealed the
emotional groom’s reaction.
She said: “He just came up to me
and said: ‘Oh my gosh, she looks
incredible. Thank you, she looks
absolutely stunning’.”
The mother-of-three, who is 47,
talked to the couple at the lunchtime reception after they returned
from their carriage procession
around Windsor.
She said: “They were just radiant.
I think everybody saw on television,
he was absolutely in awe.
“She looked just incredible and
it showed.”
Ms Waight Keller also revealed
she had not told her husband Philip
Keller, a US-born architect, and
their children she had designed the
dress until the day of the wedding.
She said: “It was really a secret.”

A sketch of the final dress design for Meghan
MEGHAN’S choice of
British designer Clare
Waight Keller for
Givenchy took the
fashion world by surprise.
Many speculated that
the dress of the year
would be made by a
British-based fashion
house such as Erdem or
Victoria Beckham.
But the elegant gown
spoke volumes of
Meghan’s personal style.
Known for her simple,
pared-down aesthetic,
the bride chose a fittingly
chic gown for her big day
– and her 16ft train,
delicately embroidered
with flowers from the
Commonwealth
countries, grew gasps of
delight from fashion fans.
As she made her way
down the aisle to her
betrothed, Prince Harry
spoke for the nation as
he told his bride: “You
look amazing.”
With an estimated one
billion people watching
the wedding worldwide,
Meghan Markle truly
sparkled on her big day.
Brides on a budget
keen to copy Meghan’s
style should head to
Tesco – F&F is rumoured
to be releasing its own
version of the flowing
gown “imminently”.

The newlyweds
will soon be
thinking about
their future
WITH their wedding now behind them,
the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex
are likely to start thinking about starting a family soon.
They have made no secret of their
desire to have children so nobody
will be too surprised if Kensington
Palace announces a baby is on the way.
At 36, Meghan is not expected to wait
too long to try to start having children.
The late Princess Diana’s former confidant and butler Paul Burrell told the
Daily Express last month that Harry
had always wanted a large family.
“As children, he and William both
said they would have large families. I
predict Meghan will be pregnant before
Christmas,” he said.
In the meantime, Prince Harry and
Meghan will be back at work tomorrow,
attending their first official royal
engagement as a married couple.
They are due to join Prince Charles
and the Duchess of Cornwall at a Buckingham Palace garden party celebrating the Prince of Wales’s military and
charity patronages to mark his upcoming 70th birthday in November.
Harry, 33, and Meghan have delayed
their honeymoon “until later in the
summer”, partly so they can spend time
with friends who have travelled from far
and wide to attend their wedding.
Their honeymoon destination has
not been confirmed, although there has
been speculation about Namibia. Their
9pI`Z_Xi[GXcd\i
IfpXc:fii\jgfe[\ek
focus for now will be to settle into
married life at Nottingham Cottage,
their two-bedroomed home in Kensington Palace.
A senior royal aide said: “They’re
blissfully happy there. They will move
to a larger place eventually, I am sure,
but there is nothing else available at
Kensington Palace for the moment.”
However, Burrell warned that one of
Meghan’s priorities should also be to
find a support network of friends or
family to handle the pressure-cooker
K?<>I<8K:C<8E$LG1
G8><J/0
atmosphere inside the Royal Family.
Unlike Kate, Prince William’s wife who
has the support of the Middleton
family, Meghan’s mother was the only
person from her family at the wedding.
The former actress has a close group
of friends but many of them live in the
US, where she is from, and Canada.
Veterans of the royal household said
she would need to find a trusted group
of UK-based friends to give her the
support she will need.
Meghan is also expected to create a
programme of official royal work, which
will include new charities to promote,
whether with Harry or by herself. It is
expected she will choose causes close
to her heart, like women’s empowerment. Her feminism and her pride in
her mixed-race African-American heritage offers the Royal Family a chance to
reach new sections of society.
However, like Kate, she will find as a
member of the Royal Family she must
avoid party political controversies or
promoting agendas that could damage
Britain’s national interest. As a previous critic of US President Donald
Trump, she must now be tight-lipped
for fear of damaging the UK’s interests.
She and Harry will travel around the
Commonwealth, focusing on people
under 30 who make up 60 per cent of
the 53-nation’s 2.4 billion population.
In October, they are due to go to Sydney, Australia, for the Invictus Games.
Sources have said they are also likely to
tour the country and may take in New
Zealand, Fiji and Tonga.
There is talk of two shorter trips
before that to Ireland the Netherlands.
Harry also plans to travel to Lesotho
in Africa to visit his African Aids charity
Sentebale. Chairman Johnny Hornby
said: “I certainly know he will be in
Lesotho at least a couple of times
this year. I don’t know if Meghan
will go with him but I’d be surprised if
he didn’t want to take her there when
the time is right.”

Doria, so
proud and
so calm...
9p>`c\jJ_\c[i`Zb
DORIA Ragland looked
every inch the proud
mother as she emerged
from the wedding
service linking arms
with Prince Charles.
She had just
witnessed her daughter
marry Prince Harry as
the couple became
the Duke and Duchess
of Sussex.
Doria, 61, appeared
calm and confident
throughout the
proceedings.
She was the only
member of the bride’s
family in attendance
after her ex-husband
and Meghan’s father,
Thomas Markle, 73,
pulled out on health
grounds. And she
looked resplendent on
Saturday in her outfit.
The yoga instructor
and therapist wore a
pale pistachio green day
coat and dress with
white floral embroidery
by Oscar de la Renta.
It was matched with a
small hat by British
milliner Stephen Jones
and heels by Aquazzura.
In the build-up to the
big occasion Doria met
the Queen and Prince
Philip on Friday after
being introduced to the
Duke and Duchess of
Cambridge and two
of their children the
previous day.
Hours after flying in
from Los Angeles,
Prince Charles hosted
a tea party for her to
meet her daughter’s
new in-laws.
Philip was determined to attend the wedding after his op
Fit and fashionable,
the 96-year-old Duke
PRINCE Philip has been
wowed by former actress
Meghan, the new Duchess
of Sussex.
The 96-year-old was
determined to attend the
wedding of his grandson
Prince Harry to the star.
He is said to be very fond
of the latest addition to
the Royal Family and was
quick to welcome her.
The Duke, who retired
from official royal duties
last year, appeared to be in
rude health in his first
public appearance since he
had hip replacement
surgery in April.
He also looked fit and
fashionable in a traditional
tailored suit coat at
Saturday’s service.
Ahead of the ceremony
at St George’s Chapel,
a Kensington Palace
spokeswoman said:
“Prince Philip will make his
post-surgery debut at his
grandson, Prince Harry’s
Royal Wedding.”
Prince Harry’s
biographer Duncan
Larcombe said: “In many
ways, Harry’s like a mini
version of Prince Philip, in
terms of sense of humour
and fun. Harry is very, very
close to him.
“He wasn’t fond of
several members of the
Royal Family but as far as I
understand, he’s very fond
of Harry and Meghan.
“I think like many
people, Prince Philip is
excited about the fact that
Harry is marrying for the
right reason. He’s marrying
because he’s head over
heels in love. No question
about that.”
Life with the Sussexes certainly won’t be dull
:FDD<EK
IT HAD been a bumpy week
leading up to the wedding, which
seems to be the form these days.
I remember clearly how in 2005
the press attacked every element
of Prince Charles’s marriage to
Camilla Parker Bowles, until the
very day of the wedding when it
suddenly changed and his “hated
mistress” became overnight his
“supportive wife” as she has
been ever since.
In this case the drama
surrounding the bride’s father
caused considerable distress and
tension behind the scenes.
However, all this was resolved by
the day of the wedding.
On that note, Prince Charles
fulfilled his duties to perfection,
receiving the bride elegantly
?L>FM@:B<IJ
IfpXcZfdd\ekXkfi
under the organ loft, giving her a
reassuring word, demonstrating
inclusiveness and support then
quietly taking his place.
For me the star of the day was
Ms Doria Ragland, whose quiet
elegance and dignity was
impressive. Let it be noted she
has never spoken a word to the
media.
Meghan, HRH The Duchess of
Sussex, has entered what she
described in the engagement
interview as “a new chapter.”
Who is she? It depends what you
look for – an actress, TV star,
bi-racial (though I share her
annoyance that this is always
mentioned), older than the
bridegroom, divorced, and the
product of a rather publicly
dysfunctional family.
But, more importantly, she is
the first royal bride to have
addressed the United Nations, a
global ambassador for charities,
a human rights activist and a
feminist.
Will she change the monarchy?
The United States is welcoming
the ready acceptance of what
they describe as an African
American into the Royal Family.
It has long been said that the
monarchy is never quite in step
with the times. It is usually a step
ahead or behind– and being a
step behind is invariably better.
Being hereditary, it rejuvenates
with each generation and
welcoming Meghan is a sure
sign of that.
She is intelligent and articulate.
She and Prince Harry are not
going to reign. Their primary role
is to be supportive of the
monarch. But, rather like Prince
Philip and Princess Anne, they
can advance their own causes
when they are free to do so, and
the opportunities are endless.
The Sussexes, as we must now
call them, will be fabulous
Commonwealth ambassadors.
It won’t be dull.

AS the crowds dispersed and the
new Duke and Duchess celebrated
their first few hours as a married
couple, the residents of Windsor
gradually reclaimed their town.
Only the innumerable Union Jack
flags remained as clean-up efforts
after the Royal Wedding began as
early as 4pm on Saturday.
Around 100,000 well-wishers lined
the streets ahead of the wedding,
hoping to catch a glimpse of Harry
and Meghan on their procession
through the town.
In the early hours of Sunday, workers began picking up any leftover
litter from the 2.6-mile Long Walk
section of the route.
Lorries also arrived to empty
bins and collect the crowd barriers.
Naziq
Hussain,
manager
of
Esquires Coffee House, said: “You
couldn’t move here yesterday but
this morning, it seems like a pretty
9pD\c`jjXDff[p
average Sunday – except for the
international TV crews.
“The place is really tidy, you
wouldn’t think anything happened.”
An estimated 4,000 yards of
bunting was in place along the procession route and stages had been
set up to entertain people as they
waited for the royal couple to arrive.
Food stalls, facilities and big
screens put up for crowds to watch
the ceremony were also dismantled
yesterday so the locals could get
back to normal.
In the days leading up to the
wedding, Windsor became a hive of
activity as royal fans camped out
along the procession route to secure
a good viewing spot. Even though
many spectators had left by yesterday morning, there was still a significant police presence in the town as
the royal couple prepared to leave
Windsor Castle.
Thames Valley Police was ridiculed in advance of the ceremony for
asking spectators not to throw
confetti for security reasons, before
later admitting “it would be a bit of
a pain to clean up”.
On Twitter, the Royal Family
expressed their gratitude to those
who enjoyed the wedding.
They said: “Thank you to everyone who came to Windsor and those
who followed from around the UK,
the Commonwealth and the world.
“Congratulations once again to
the newly married Duke and Duchess of Sussex #royalwedding.”

Royal parties are right up our street
ROYAL wedding celebrations went
on long into the night – and not
only for the married couple.
With clear skies and temperatures of up to 72F, Union Flags
adorned houses as street parties
were hosted up and down the
country.
Thousands took advantage of
extended pub licensing hours, to
toast the new couple, with many in
fancy dress or wearing masks of the
Royal Family.
A party on Platt Street, Stock-
9pD\c`jjXDff[p
port, typified the mood, while in
Brighton crowds took to the beach
to watch the wedding on a big
screen.
In Hackney, east London, some of
the revellers enjoying a street party
donned wedding dresses with floral
embroidery and puffball sleeves
that bore comparison to Princess
Diana’s own wedding dress.
Meanwhile a street party in
Hammersmith,
west
London,
attracted worldwide interest. Lulu
Gwynne,
the
owner
of
the
1920s-style Betty Blythe cafe, where
the party was being hosted, said:
“We have been inundated with
enquiries and bookings.
“We have attracted a global audience with some guests coming from
as far as Japan.”
Further north, hundreds of people took to Millennium Square in
Leeds with picnics and sparkling
wine to watch the events unfold on
a big screen while they soaked up
the sun. David Fryer, from Thorner,
near Leeds, said: “I think it’s been
an amazing event.
“If there’s anything the Brits can
do it’s pomp and ceremony and
pageantry. We’ve demonstrated
that again. Nobody can do it like we
can do it.”
In Eastwood, Notts, caravanners
celebrated by decorating their vehicles in bunting as well as flags and
pictures of Harry and Meghan.
More than 50 families gathered on
camping chairs to watch the wed-
ding. Singer Adele shared her own
celebration with a photo on Instagram, in which she wore a black
polka-dot fascinator and held a
flute of bubbly.
“Congratulations Meghan and
Harry,” the singer wrote in her caption. “You’re the most beautiful
bride. I can’t stop thinking of how
happy Princess Diana is upstairs.”
And former Spice Girl Emma
Bunton, who was not at the wedding, posted a picture of herself
wearing a white veil on Instagram.

BBC bosses told its star presenters to
avoid “stiff upper lips” when covering
the wedding in a memo where it
presumed to “give advice to royalty”.
The secret orders are illustrated by
a photograph of a suited BBC radio
announcer and state: “Please don’t go
all stiff upper lip on us. Auntie Beeb
can stay at home.
“This isn’t an
exclusive pomp
and pageantry
affair, but one
that everyone
can join in.”
In the
memo headed:
The Royal
Wedding
– Share The
Love, broadcasters were
urged to take a
“fun” and a “down
to earth” tone with
viewers.
It boasted: “We’ve created three
trailers giving tips/advice to the
happy couple.
“It’s all part of our democratisation
of this campaign where everyday
people can give advice to royalty.”
The guide also describes Harry as a
“lovable prince” and Meghan as a
“woman of the world”.
It reads: “The world has changed a
lot since the wedding of William
and Kate, ie. social media advancement, female empowerment and
inclusivity.
“The marriage is the perfect way to
represent a modern BBC, one that is

progressive, in touch and human. We
should feel like we’re the ones
enjoying being at the party, rather
than simply reporting the party.”
And congratulating itself on its
trailers, the BBC enthuses: “We can
see in the style, tone and language of
the royal couple that they are all for
our idea.”
The memo says star presenters
have invited their partners in to “give
the royal couple some helpful/
insightful advice”.
The wedding
attracted a peak
of more than
13.1 million
viewers to
BBC One.
ITV’s
audience
peaked with
3.6 million
viewers, at a
different time.
The combined average
audience for BBC
and ITV was about 11
million.
The BBC’s coverage, led by
presenters Kirsty Young, Huw
Edwards and Dermot O’Leary,
attracted an average of 8.7 million
viewers and a 63.9 per cent share,
between 9am and 2pm.
ITV, fronted by Phillip Schofield
and Julie Etchingham, averaged 2.5
million viewers and an 18.6 per cent
share between 9.25am and 3pm.
On BBC One, the FA Cup Final
averaged 6.7 million viewers and
peaked at 8.7 million.

providing the sombre, elder
statesman point of view.
It was as if the Beeb couldn’t
decide what approach to
plump for, so they threw in
four more media faces – Alex
Jones, Ore Oduba, Anita Rani
and Tina Daheley. Over on ITV,
it was just as crowded, a
sparky duo of Phillip Schofield
and Julie Etchingham being
drowned out by the other
studio guests.
Sky News, surprisingly,
didn’t go for the “cast of
thousands” approach.
Although Kay Burley and Anna
Botting were two-thirds of the
line-up, the most memorable
voice was that of royal
correspondent Alastair Bruce.
Hushed, reverent, slow and
chucking in ample references
to perpendicular architecture
and dead kings, he harked
back to an earlier age of royal
weddings and their presenting.
But the old school approach
was right out of step.
US network Fox News
discussed security as the
correspondent seemed to
think she was reporting from
a war zone.
To be fair to all broadcasters
though, who could possibly
have got this one right?
£30m ring of steel that let world see Britain at its best
ONE of the nation’s biggest ever
security operations went off without a hitch on Saturday allowing
the world to see Britain at its best.
Thousands of police officers and
troops were deployed to create a
£30million ring of steel around
Windsor.
The wedding was a security
nightmare. Harry and Meghan’s
9pAf_e@e^_Xd;\]\eZ\<[`kfi
open-topped carriage ride through
old Windsor and up the Long Walk
left them vulnerable to attack.
And the gathering of the great
and the good in the St George’s
Chapel also presented a target for
terrorists. But armed police lined
the route while undercover officers
and Special Forces soldiers mingled with the crowds.
Snipers with spotters were
posted on rooftops on the lookout
for any threat.
Tensions were high because Britain’s official threat level from international terrorism is “severe” which
means an attack is “highly likely”.
Security planning began when
the wedding was announced last
November with experts walking the
route and building up profiles of
the riskiest locations.
Road blocks and automatic
number-plate recognition cameras
helped police control access to the
most sensitive areas and watch out
for known suspect vehicles.
A ban on drones flying overhead
eliminated another risk as did an
overflight ban during the wedding.
Helicopters protected the skies
above Windsor, while marine police
were patrolling the Thames.
But as the happy couple left “Fortress Windsor” yesterday, the security forces were able to congratulate themselves on an operation
which went like a dream.

ORIS JOHNSON is turning out to
be the voice of conscience sitting on
the prime ministerial shoulder and
very welcome that is too. The
Foreign Secretary has warned Theresa
May that she must not let her customs
plans betray the British people over
Brexit. It was the PM, after all, who told
us that Brexit means Brexit. She must
stick to her guns.
Indeed, this is turning into a time of
national renewal. We have just seen this in
the changing face of the monarchy in the
aftermath of a glorious wedding and we
should seize the opportunity Brexit
affords us to rejoice in a brand new era of
our island history too.
We are taking back control. We are in
charge of our own destiny. Ever since we
voted to leave, the economy has soared,
as has employment, and we clearly have
all to play for. Yet fears about the future
still cast a shadow and that is why some
want to stick within the old customs
union. They are wrong.
Johnson understands this which is why
he is constantly and publicly reminding
the PM what the people voted for. And he
is right to do so.
Boris was one of the leading lights in the
campaign to leave the EU. He is now
proving to be the conscience of the
current incumbent of No 10 and we
should all be grateful for that.

OU can tell a lot about a man by

that Jeremy Corbyn has for years

many that he is the leader of a national
political party.
Now he is showing he has learned
nothing from his now elevated status,
proposing to deliver a lecture at Queen’s
University, Belfast, where lecturer Edgar
Graham was shot by terrorists at the
height of the Troubles.
It is bad enough that Mr Corbyn is
visiting Belfast with the cynical intent of
disrupting Brexit at a crucial moment in
the negotiations but the sheer contempt
he is displaying to Mr Graham’s family is
horrifying. The leader of the Opposition
has been rightly accused by the Tories of
callousness. What more must this man do

HE build-up to the Royal Wedding
was fraught with personal drama,
much of it revolving around the
family of the bride. But in the end
the occasion went magnificently.
Its success was encapsulated in the
words that Meghan, now Duchess of Sussex, said to her new husband as the couple
emerged into the sunlight after the ceremony in St George’s Chapel.
“It all went so well. Oh, that was so beautiful, so perfect,” she declared. The cheering throng at Windsor, as well as millions of
television viewers, would have wholeheartedly agreed.
The whole event was choreographed to
perfection. It was a wonderful blend of
pageantry and openness, of ancient ritual
and contemporary values.
It was both very British and very cosmopolitan, with brocaded trumpeters performing alongside a black gospel choir, and
the Archbishop of Canterbury sharing the
ecclesiastical duties with an evangelical
preacher from Chicago.
The harmonious mix of
tradition and modernity
was epitomised by the sight
of the Prince of Wales, heir
to the historic British
throne, chivalrously accompanying the radiant bride,
a biracial American actress,
down the aisle of the
chapel.
The day provided a host
of other striking images,
though none was more powerful than the restrained
emotional dignity of her
mother Doria Ragland, a
descendant of slaves now
intimately linked to royalty.
Her presence at the heart of this unique
ceremony was a very personal illustration
of how the British monarchy is changing.
Indeed, a mood of profound humanity
enveloped the wedding, infused with inclusivity and generosity. In his passionate sermon, Bishop Michael Curry, the head of
the Episcopalian Church in the US, spoke
of the redemptive, Earth-changing “power
of love”. That quality was certainly embodied by Meghan and Harry, whose adoration
for each other was palpable.
Given all these appealing ingredients, it
is no wonder that the public was captivated by the wedding. Crowds of more
than 120,000 people are estimated to have
gathered in Windsor, while the global TV
audience reached 1.9 billion, with 32 million watching in the US. “A princely marriage is the brilliant edition of a universal
fact and as such rivets Mankind,” wrote
the Victorian constitutional expert Walter
Bagehot. The phenomenal interest in
Meghan and Harry highlights the continuing truth of that statement.
Buttressed by public affection, uplifted
by Saturday’s triumph, the British monarchy now looks more secure than ever. One
poll, in the run-up to the wedding, showed
that more than 90 per cent of the public
back the Crown. Yet in our democratic,
hi-tech age, where elitism is a dirty word,
this near universal public support for
royalty might seem incongruous. After all,
the concept of a hereditary head of state
runs counter to modern notions of
meritocracy and social mobility.
But the monarchy is cherished because
it works, and it works because it has proved
itself endlessly adaptable. The philosopher
Edmund Burke famously wrote in the
aftermath of the French Revolution that
“the state without the means of some
change is without the means of its conservation”. Throughout its modern history,
the Royal Family has continually displayed
its ability to change, which is the prime
reason why it has avoided extinction
despite all the political and social upheaval
that has convulsed our country over the
centuries. The marriage of Harry to
Meghan is just the latest chapter in that
long saga of adaptability.
Since the beginning of the 19th century,
the Royal Family has been through a
number of major crises, each of them
threatening to bring about its downfall,
yet it has ultimately emerged stronger.
In the 1820s, George IV was loathed for
his gluttony and dissolute extravagance.
Even the establishment Times newspaper
wrote that “nothing more remains to
be said about George IV but
to pay, as pay we must, for
his profusion”.
But within seven years of
his
unlamented
death,
Queen Victoria was on the
throne, beginning a golden
era of economic prosperity
and imperial grandeur. Yet
for all the glories of her
reign, Victoria at one stage
gave a burst of impetus to
the Republican movement,
when she went into a
lengthy period of reclusive
mourning after her beloved
husband Prince Albert died
in 1861.
In the 20th century, the
monarchy survived war and revolutions in
Europe, the Abdication crisis of 1936, a
series of marriage breakdowns in the 1990s
and, above all, the death of Princess Diana
in 1997, when combustible public anger
threatened to bring down the House of
Windsor. But the Royal Family has continued and even flourished, due to its capacity for reinvention, a gift that has been fully
on display over the past decade.
‘Buttressed
by public
affection it
looks more
secure
than ever’
F
N one hand, continuity has been
provided by Queen Elizabeth, the
longest-serving monarch in British history, whose devotion, stoicism and
self-sacrifice have made her such an
admired figure across the world.
On the other hand, renewal has come
through the younger generation of royals.
Prince William’s marriage to Kate Middleton in 2011 was a landmark, for she was
not only the first woman with a university
degree in the Royal Family, but also, as
the daughter of a couple who had met as
airline crew, she hailed from the middleclass rather than the aristocracy. Now
Meghan has taken the embrace of change
a stage further.
The Royal Family’s deep bond with the
British public is helped by its constitutional role above the fray of party politics.
As the Queen understands so well, the
avoidance of political controversy has
been essential for the monarchy’s legitimacy. No politician or elected head of state
PAGEANTRY: The
happy couple are
cheered by some
of the 120,000
wellwishers who

could ever command the kind of enthusiasm that we witnessed in Windsor on Saturday. Because the royals are not dependent on votes for their positions, they can
avoid the bitter taint of partisanship,
opportunism and self-aggrandisement.
Paradoxically, they are popular because
they do not need to seek popularity.
Freed from party strife, the Royal Wedding was an event that everyone could
enjoy. The sense of national pride was further bolstered by the superb organisation

the Palace, reflected in everything from the
beautiful liturgy in the chapel to the procession by the Household Cavalry.
As they embark on their new life, the marriage of Harry and Meghan can serve as an
emblem, not only of the enduring strength of
the monarchy but also of the changing nature
of Britain. They are in tune with the today’s
demographics, where one in 10 British couples is biracial and people of mixed race are
the fastest growing group in the population.
The welcome for Meghan into the Royal
Family makes a mockery of the fashionable
Left-wing narrative that our society is gripped
by vicious institutional racism – a line peddled
recently by the UN envoy Tendayi Achiume
who claimed in a much-hyped official report
that, since Brexit, there has been “a rise in
explicit racial, ethnic, and religious intolerance”. Just the opposite is true.
As the marriage shows, racial enmities are
evaporating in modern Britain. “I feel like
this wedding today is a massive thumbs-up
from the top,” said the Brixton DJ Munya
Chawawa.
The wedding saw Britain at its best. Anti-
Brexiteers love to claim that our withdrawal
from the EU shows we are isolated and in
decline. Such defeatism is nonsense. Any
nation that can stage an event like that,
which captivates the world, still has an
enormous amount of global influence.
In fact, Harry’s marriage will do nothing
but good in strengthening our post-Brexit
relationships with the US and the Commonwealth, for whom he is to become a roving
ambassador.
The only sour notes came from ideological
cranks and professional grievance mongers,
such as the Left-wing Labour MP Emma
Dent Coad, who said she was a “wedding
killjoy” because of the housing crisis in London. Similarly Dr Kehinde Andrews, a sociologist at Birmingham City University, called
the event “offensive” because “the Royal
Family is one of the main symbols of whiteness, Empire, bloodlines and colonial times”.
These deluded dogmatists speak for
no one. Saturday’s wedding was a justified
moment of national celebration. Harry and
Meghan promoted a British patriotism in
which all can share.

LABOUR frontbencher Barry
Gardiner suffered a “car crash”
TV interview yesterday as the
party’s confused position on
Brexit was laid bare.
The shadow international trade
secretary was asked on BBC’s The
Andrew Marr Show why his public
and private statements contradict
one another on EU policy.
Emma Barnett – hosting the show
while Mr Marr is away – quizzed the
MP about remarks he made to a
private audience in which he said
9pDXZ\i?Xcc
Gfc`k`ZXc<[`kfi#`eC`dX
BORIS Johnson last night warned
Theresa May her post-Brexit customs
plan must not lead to a “betrayal” of
the referendum vote to quit the EU.
In a fresh salvo in the Cabinet
squabble over ties to Brussels, the
Foreign Secretary publicly signalled
his lack of enthusiasm for the socalled “backstop” proposal being
floated as a solution to the Northern
Ireland border problem.
He urged Tory Brexit supporters to
give the Prime Minister the “time and
space” needed to negotiate a trade
deal with the EU.
But the Foreign Secretary also
insisted they will not accept any
extension of the UK’s alignment
with EU tariffs beyond 2020 that
keeps Britain effectively in the bloc’s
H

people were “playing up” the Irish
border for political gain. When
asked if he stood by that remark,
Mr Gardiner said: “There are
reasons why people would wish to.
“If you look at the balance of
trade and the importance of
cross-border trade between the
South and North in Ireland, it is
extremely difficult to see how the
Irish economy would withstand the
imposition of cross-border controls.”
Ms Barnett then pressed Mr
Gardiner on the issue, asking:
“Which Barry Gardiner is the truth?
The one that speaks in private or
the one that is on television now?”
Mr Gardiner tetchily replied:
“Sometimes you have
conversations in private, and the
reason they are private is because
you can advance thinking.
“If all you ever do is stick to the
given line, you’d never discuss
anything with people.” He also
floundered when asked to explain
why Janet Daby, Labour’s candidate
for the Lewisham East by-election,
wants to keep Britain in the single
market, against official Labour
policy. The interview was branded a
“total car crash” by Carrie
Symonds, the Conservative Party’s
director of communications.
And Brexit minister Steve Baker
said: “If Labour’s own top team
think Jeremy Corbyn’s Brexit policy
is rubbish, what confidence are the
public meant to have in him?”

customs union indefinitely. And he
increased the pressure on the Prime
Minister by telling her to remain “true
to her promises” of a complete
break from the EU’s single market
and other ties.
Mr Johnson made his latest intervention in the long-running Cabinet
row during a five-day diplomatic tour
of South America where he is promoting British trade in a drive to seize the
global opportunities from Brexit.
After arriving in the Peruvian
capital Lima, he said: “I’m convinced
that the Prime Minister will be true to
her promises of a Brexit deal that sees
Britain will come out of the customs
union and the single market, have
borders as frictionless as possible,
reject European Court of Justice
interference, control immigration and
be free to conduct unhindered free
trade deals across the world.
“We must now give the Prime Minis-
Tribute to

Falklands
ter time and space to negotiate this
Brexit vision.”
Cabinet ministers have been wrangling for weeks over a blueprint for
post-Brexit customs arrangements
with Brussels that avoid the need for
a “hard border” between Northern
Ireland and Ireland.
Last week a majority on the Prime
Minister’s Brexit sub-committee tentatively backed a proposal that could
extend Britain’s matching of EU
tariffs after the end of the implementation period in December 2020 in
case digital technology needed to
police a “soft border” is not ready.
Some Brexit-backing Tories see the
plan as a way of keeping Britain tied
to the customs union indefinitely.
Mr Johnson yesterday said: “Brexiteers fearing betrayal over the customs backstop must understand that
the Prime Minister has been very clear
that neither option is an outcome we
desire. We want a deal with the EU
and she will deliver it,” he said. In
Peru Mr Johnson toured an animal
rescue centre at Iquitos.
He fed a pair of manatees, also
known as sea cows, and was introduced to a baby spider monkey.
Accompanied by Peru’s foreign
minister Nestor Popolizio he also
encountered a three-toed sloth.

THE Foreign Secretary last
night began a three-day visit
to Argentina by laying a
wreath to the Falklands
War dead.
In a gesture of reconciliation
36 years after the South
Atlantic conflict, Boris
Johnson attended a ceremony
at the Monument to the
Fallen in Buenos Aires.
Aides said the move was a
sign of a “reset” in relations
between the two countries
after years of diplomatic
rows about the sovereignty
of the islands.
Mr Johnson’s gesture was
designed to commemorate the
dead on both sides of the
conflict even though the
monument only lists the
names of the Argentine fallen.
His visit to Argentina is part
of a week-long tour of South
America to promote new
global post-Brexit trade links.
He will represent the UK at
a G20 summit today and hold
meetings with president
Mauricio Macri and foreign
minister Jorge Faurie.
Arriving in Argentina, Mr
Johnson said: “As the UK
leaves the European Union,
my message is that the UK is
open for business. I look
forward to a new chapter in
our relationship, and booming
trade prospects, after the UK
leaves the European Union.”
“It is an honour to join
foreign minister Faurie today,
and to lay a wreath at the
Monument to the Fallen,
commemorating all those who
died in the Falkland Islands
conflict.”

BILLIONAIRE Chelsea FC owner
Roman Abramovich has yet to
renew his UK visa, it has emerged.
The Russian – who missed seeing
his team beat Manchester United
1-0 in the FA Cup final on Saturday
– is “facing delays” in the renewals
process after it expired last month,
the Financial Times reported.
The
revelation
comes
after
previous stories by the Daily Express
stating that Mr Abramovich and
Arsenal FC shareholder Alisher
Usmanov could face extra Home
Office scrutiny as part of a crackdown
on high-profile Russians who back
Vladimir Putin’s regime.
There is nothing to suggest either
man has done anything wrong.
Mr Abramovich’s visa application
is said to be taking longer than
usual. According to sources, he is
thought to have returned to Russia.
However, the billionaire could
become the first major casualty of
the tensions since the Salisbury
nerve agent attack on Sergei
Skripal and his daughter Yulia
in March.
Britain has maintained that the
attack on the former Russian agent
was probably ordered by the Kremlin
and has since taken measures
against Mr Putin and his allies, who
include the Chelsea owner.
Yesterday Mr Abramovich’s official
spokesman John Mann refused to
comment on the claims.
Mr Mann, who is based in Moscow,
said the visa application was “a
private matter”.
The Home Office also declined
to comment.
Security minister Ben Wallace
said: “We do not routinely comment
on individual cases.”
Mr Abramovich, who made his
fortune in oil and gas in the
1990s, is one of Russia’s bestknown businessmen.
The Sunday Times recently named
him as Britain’s 13th richest man,
with a net worth of £9.3billion. Mr

magma destroyed four more

escape routes including the key

Authorities were trying to open up
other roads as alternative escape
routes.

WHEN researching my biography
of Roman Abramovich shortly
after he bought Chelsea FC in
2003, I asked one well-placed
Moscow businessman why a
Russian oligarch would buy a
British football club.
His answer came as a
surprise.
He said it was because the
acquisition amounted to “the
cheapest insurance policy in
history”.
Overnight, Abramovich
– whom I dubbed “the billionaire
from nowhere” – became a
household name in Britain and
earned the devotion of
thousands of Blues fans for
splashing out millions on
“marquee” players who would
attract others.
So if the Kremlin moved
against him it could be sure it
would create headlines around
Roman Abramovich, 51
Russia’s President Putin
9p;fd`e`ZD`[^c\p
the world and Downing Street
would be all the more inclined to
grant him asylum.
At the time, all Russian
billionaires lived in fear.
Abramovich’s former partner
Boris Berezovsky and Vladimir
Gusinsky, another tycoon, had
already fled after falling out with
President Vladimir Putin.
Mikhail Khodorkovsky, the
country’s richest man, had been
jailed.
The Chelsea owner responded
with a low profile and cosying up
to Putin, whom he calls “Vlod”.
But in safeguarding himself in
his homeland, Abramovich may
have compromised his standing
here.
l Dominic Midgley is co-author
of Abramovich, The Billionaire
From Nowhere
Chelsea’s Gary Cahill lifts cup on Saturday
Abramovich has been a London
resident since he bought Chelsea
from former chairman Ken Bates
in 2003. But he spends a lot of time
in Moscow so it is not unusual for
him to miss games at the club.
The billionaire has come to
symbolise the rich Russians who
have made the UK their home since
the fall of the Iron Curtain and
Communist rule. Since the attack
on the Skripals – who have both now
been released from hospital and are
under British protection – there has
been increased political tension
between Russia and the West.
After
the
Salisbury
attack,
Mrs May told MPs that the Kremlin
had a long record of carrying out
state-sponsored assassinations and
insisted that it viewed some
former intelligence officers as
legitimate targets.
She said: “We have information
indicating that within the last
decade, Russia has investigated
ways of delivering nerve agents,
probably for assassination, and as
part of this programme has produced
and stockpiled small quantities of
Novichok. Clearly, that is in
contravention of the chemical
weapons convention.”
Mrs May said Mr Putin and his
supporters
would
face
tough
measures in response to the attack.
There have also been suggestions
that property in the UK owned
by Putin supporters could be
confiscated.

Jean Morrell dear when she
was charged almost £2,000
despite having returned it.
Jean could not understand
how she had ended up so out of
pocket and when her efforts to get a
refund stalled she decided to turn to
Crusader for help.
It was in November last year that
a
package
which
had
been
despatched by Amazon, where she
has been a regular customer for
more than a decade, turned up
unexpectedly at her door.
“I accepted it because I’m used to
buying goods from there,” she says.
“However I quickly realised it wasn’t
mine. I didn’t remove any packaging
and wrote to the Amazon address
on the delivery note explaining the
situation.”
Jean didn’t get a reply but a month
later had a nasty shock when she
saw her account had been debited.

issue in practice beneficiaries
are told, subject to any claims.
Wills specialist Louise Igoe, a
partner with law firm Lodders,
advises: “Another key element is
the Grant of Probate, an order of
the court that, when there is a
will, confirms the executor has
authority to administer the
estate. Once this is issued, the
will becomes a public document
and available for inspection.”
If there is no will, distribution is
based on relationship to the
deceased.
¬ lodders.co.uk
WILLS can be contentious even
when the sums involved are
small. Crusader often receives
inquiries from frustrated relatives
who are not executors wanting to
know about their rights to the
details of the will.
When someone dies, the
solicitor takes instructions from
the executor. There is no duty on
that person to disclose the terms
to the beneficiaries before a
Grant of Representation (proving
the executor’s entitlement) has
been issued confirming a will is
valid. When validity is not an

did and it was acknowledged. I also
called the helpline but there has
been no refund.
“I’ve been so worried,” she says.
“It was a good job that there was
enough money in my account or I
would have faced overdraft charges.”
A delay of this length for a charge of
this size appeared very strange,
however, if this was just a case of
mistaken details.
And that suspicion has proved
correct because while mystery still
surrounds what actually went on, it
looks most likely fraud was at the
bottom of this case, increasing the
confusion.
After we asked Amazon to
investigate, Jean’s payment was
returned, much to her relief and she
also received a hamper as a goodwill
gesture from the company for the
problems she encountered while
trying to get a resolution.
As she never made the order,
Amazon confirmed it was happy to
refund her. However, “from time to
time customers may receive emails
appearing to come from Amazon,
which are actually false emails,
sometimes called ‘spoof emails’ or
‘phishing emails’,” a spokesperson
advised.
“These can look similar to real
Amazon emails but often direct the
recipient to a false website where
they might be asked to provide
account information.
“Unfortunately, these false sites
can steal sensitive information,
using this later without someone’s
knowledge to commit fraud.
“To ensure customers do not
respond to a false or phishing email
they should always go directly to
their Amazon account to review or
make any changes to orders.”

Ben rushes from
Everest for date
in front of the TV
BEN Fogle landed back in
Britain after his conquest of
Everest – and promptly sat
down to watch the Royal
Wedding.
The TV adventurer, 44, was
met at Heathrow early on
Saturday by his wife Marina
and children Ludo, eight,
and Iona, six.
He said: “It has been
surreal to sit in the garden
with family and friends and
watch the Royal Wedding.
“A young couple
embarking on the adventure
of a lifetime. It feels like a
good day to be home.”

Tories blast
Corbyn over
Belfast visit
9p;Xm`[DX[[fo
Gfc`k`ZXc:fii\jgfe[\ek
JEREMY Corbyn has provoked
fury over plans for a visit to
Northern Ireland despite his
past sympathies for the IRA.
The hard-Left Labour leader,
who has refused to specifically
condemn the bombing and
murders carried out by the IRA,
is to visit Belfast in a bid to
exploit the Government’s
difficulties on Brexit and the
Northern Irish border.
The anger focused on reports
that he will speak at Queen’s
University, Belfast, where
terrorists shot dead Edgar
Graham, a 29-year-old Unionist
law lecturer, in 1983.
At the time, Sinn Fein’s leaders
including Gerry Adams refused
to condemn the murder.
Tory Party deputy chairman
James Cleverly claimed Mr
Corbyn had a “callousness and
deep lack of respect”, while
Democratic Unionist MP Ian
Paisley Jnr challenged him to
condemn “all IRA violence”.

he “smelt of rotten cheese,”
and Ben admitted it was
true. “To be fair
I hadn’t washed for five
weeks,” he wrote on social
media. “Last night was the
most luxurious sleep I have
ever had. Everything seems
so rich and lush. I am
savouring turning on a tap.”
Fogle, who charted his
progress in a diary written
exclusively for the Daily
Express, had to overcome
the failure of not one but two
oxygen tanks as he made his
final ascent.

A mum hugs her daughter at school
21
A TEENAGER accused of killing
10 people at a school shot a girl who
spurned him and turned his gun on
other classmates he saw as enemies,
the victim’s mother said yesterday.
Sadie Rodriguez, the mother of
Shana Fisher, 16, is reported to have
said her daughter rejected four
months of advances from Dimitrios
Pagourtzis, 17, at Santa Fe High
School in Texas.
“A week later he opens fire on everyone he didn’t like,” Mrs Rodriguez
said. “Shana being the first one.”
Pagourtzis is charged with the
murder of eight students and two
teachers after Friday’s shooting.
Thirteen people were wounded in
the attack, including one of the
9p>`cc`Xe:iXnc\p
school’s policemen, who is in a
critical condition.
Pagourtzis, waived his right
to remain silent and admitted “to
shooting multiple people”. If convicted he could face the death
penalty.
No motive has been officially given for the massacre, the fourth-deadliest
mass
shooting
at
a
US school.
Pupils claim Pagourtzis
opened fire with a pistol
and shotgun, taunting his
victims as he fired.
Student Breanna
Quintanilla, said he walked into her
classroom, pointed at someone, and
said: “I’m going to kill you.” Breanna
was
wounded
in
her
leg
as she fled.
Pagourtzis told police he spared
certain students he liked “so he
could have his story told”.
As of yesterday none of the
victims had been formally
identified by US authorities, but some have been
named separately, including
exchange
student
Sabika Sheikh, 17, and
teacher Cynthia Tisdale.
Dimitrios Pagourtzis has
admitted school shooting
During the Troubles the
intelligence services monitored
Mr Corbyn’s contacts with the
IRA. He shared a platform with
leading members of Sinn Fein
well before the peace talks
when people like Mr Adams
were accused of being senior
terrorist commanders.
He has also campaigned for a
united Ireland, ignoring the
majority view in the North.
Mr Cleverly, an ex-soldier, said:
“It’s deeply concerning Jeremy
Corbyn is considering showing
up where Edgar Graham was
killed by the IRA. It shows a
callousness and deep lack of
respect. Corbyn gave cover to the
IRA while they were bombing
and shooting our citizens.”
A spokesman for Mr Corbyn
said it was “nonsense” to accuse
him of a lack of respect in choice
of venues. He added: “Jeremy
campaigned for peace in
Northern Ireland. To do so, he
campaigned for the rights of all
to be respected and spoke to
people on all sides of the
conflict.” Details of the visit are
yet to be officially published.

Property slowdown fear as

HOUSE prices hit a record
£308,075 on average this month.
Across Britain the price of all
properties coming on to the
market jumped by £2,343 or
0.8 per cent month-on-month.
However, property website
Rightmove warned last night that
markets around the country are
working at different speeds and
the overall picture is less buoyant
in price growth and number of
sales agreed.
Director Miles Shipside said:
“After six years of continual yearon-year price growth the current

“Sellers need to pitch their
price at a tempting level to entice
buyers as, while there are signs of
strong demand, there appears to
A PENSIONER has been
charged with the murder
of an 85-year-old woman.
Rosina Coleman’s body
was found by a handyman
at her home in Romford,
east London, on Tuesday.
A post-mortem
examination gave the
cause of death as blunt
force trauma to the head
and neck.
The Metropolitan Police
said Paul Prause, also of
Romford, who was
arrested on Friday, has
been charged with her

murder. The
65-year-old
was remanded in custody
and will appear at
Redbridge magistrates
court today.
Neighbours described
Mrs Coleman as
“incredible” and someone
who was “always happy”.
The former seamstress
was a mother of two and
had lived on the road for
decades with her husband
Bill, who died about 11
years ago.
One friend, who did not

to commit.”
In certain areas a lack of homes
means that the right property at
the right price is selling briskly.
Annual asking price growth of
more than four per cent is still to
be found in the Midlands and
Wales. But in London and the
South-east it is down by as much
as 0.2 per cent.
Russell Quirk, of website
Emoov, said: “Over-optimism is
continuing to push asking prices
ever higher. This is becoming a
big problem and the widening
gap between asking price and
sold price will only result in a
further decline in buyer interest

THANK you for making a front
page story of the sad death of Rose
Coleman (“Killed by a coward in
her own home”, May 17).
Many people knew Rose very well
in this area and many of us knew
her by sight at the British Legion
Club. I have spoken to many who
knew her and they are all so upset
that she should have such a very
sad ending to her very good life.
We all think it’s about time a
stronger deterrent was made to
these murderers. They have taken
a life so we should take theirs.
Every day we are reading stories
of elderly people being attacked
and young people stabbed. Now is
the time for a strong ruling.

WHAT a terrible situation it is
when we are having to put CCTV
cameras in care homes to protect
our elderly people (“‘New law’ to
put CCTV in care homes”, May 18).
We were brought up to respect
our elders and to help them
whenever possible, like running
errands. These abusers forget that
they too will be old themselves one
day, should they survive that long.
I would also guess they would be
the first to complain should they
not have the best of care.

THE sad story of Leslie Jebson
being “abandoned” by the state is
another reminder to us all that the
NHS and the treatment of our
OAPs is desperate (“Daughter’s
distress after fight for father’s
dignity”, May 17).
Most of Leslie Jebson’s
generation were good, decent,
hard-working people who never
“sponged” off the state and welfare
systems. Today we have so many
spongers, many of whom are not
British, and we have obese younger
people taking up valuable space in
our hospitals.
Many of today’s “patients” have
never done a proper day’s work (or
paid taxes), have abused the
welfare system, stuffed their faces
and done little exercise.
No wonder our NHS and social
welfare systems are in such a mess.
Leslie Jebson has suffered
unnecessarily because of our
broken society.

HOW me and my wife laughed at
the price tags for the paintings by
David Hockney. £21million and
£8.6million for these child-like
paintings that our grandson, nearly
four, could paint in a few minutes
and gladly give you for free to make
you smile (“£30m Hockneys smash
record”, May 18).
When are those people with too
much cash to spare going to realise
that these types of art are being
produced in the thousands every
day by children who don’t charge
to make someone happy?
It would make me smile like
Hockney as well if someone gave
my grandson millions for what he
would give them for free.
I bet the true artists past and
present are having a chuckle at
those wealthy clients who are
paying millions for what is created
every day by little children.

IT is a good idea to restrict amounts which can be
gambled in one go on these fixed-odds betting terminals
in high street bookmakers (“£2 limit on bet machines in
fixed-odds crackdown”, May 18).
Understandably, large betting chains have seen share
prices drop in their businesses and are not happy about
the move. They say the Government will also lose a lot of
revenue in taxes.
It is a moral issue though. Gambling addiction can
have devastating consequences for a gambler and also for
their families.
The Government should now focus on online gambling
where massive amounts are staked and without handing
over cash physically at a counter.
This can detach the gambler from the reality of the
situation until it’s too late and the damage is done.
The Government has made a good start but further
measures need to be taken.

READING your piece
about switching off on
holiday certainly hit
home for me (“Long haul to escape

For years, as a GP, it was
something I was never fully able to
do. I’d be sitting in paradise on a
lovely beach with my wife and all of
a sudden I’d be worrying about
Patient A’s moles or how Patient B
was getting on with his Crohn’s.
The only answer was adventure
holidays and for the last five years
my breaks have involved some
high-octane activity such as skiing.

we went on holiday last year,
though. I’d taken scheduled leave

I HAVE just returned from my

envelopes. Some donate but the
majority don’t bother and give
excuses such as, “I have been busy”
or “I didn’t receive an envelope”.

everybody just gave £1 it would
make such a difference to help
people who, through no fault of

MANCHESTER Arena bomb
survivor Freya Lewis, who has
raised £40,000 for the
hospital that saved her life,
took centre stage at the
city’s annual run yesterday.
The 15-year-old was the
honorary starter in the
2.5k junior event of the
Great Manchester Run.
The attack killed 22
people, including
her best friend Nell
Jones, 14.
Freya suffered
multiple fractures and
burns and had to learn to
walk again after a suicide
bomber hit an Ariana Grande
concert last May.
The teenager, who was last week
named NHS Young Fundraising Hero
at the NHS Heroes Award, has so far
raised £40,000 for the Royal
Manchester Children’s Hospital,
where she was treated. After the race,
where she met Coronation Street star
Samia Ghadie, Freya said she wanted
“to give something back to the
hospital as they gave so much to me”.
Also among the 30,000 competitors
was Martin Hibbert, who took on the
10k course in a racing wheelchair.
The 41-year-old football agent was
standing with his daughter Eve just
10 yards from the bomb when it
detonated, leaving him paralysed
from the waist down.
A minute’s silence was held before
each race yesterday in memory of the
victims. A national minute’s silence
will be observed at 2.30pm tomorrow.
¬ÊThe NHS Heroes Awards will be
shown on ITV at 8.30pm tonight.

Rail chaos fear after timetable shake-up
Some services scapped
RAIL passengers are braced
for chaos today in the first real
test of the biggest timetable
shake-up in decades.
At least four million trains
across the country were
rescheduled yesterday – seven
times more than usual.
Following billions of pounds
in investment, Govia Thameslink Railway (GTR) – which
consists of Southern, Thameslink, Great Northern and the
Gatwick Express – will be
9pAf_e@e^_Xd
KiXejgfik<[`kfi
putting on 400 additional trains
a day in the London area,
benefiting 50,000 commuters at
80 key stations.
But it has not been an easy
transition
so
far
after
widespread disruption was
reported yesterday.
A GTR spokesman said: “We
are introducing the biggest
change to rail timetables in a
generation and, as we have
been informing passengers, we
expect some disruption to
services in the initial stages.
“This is a significant logistical challenge but the improvements we are making will lead
to a 13 per cent increase in
services across the network.
“We apologise to customers
for any inconvenience caused.”
RMT General Secretary Mick
Cash yesterday said GTR was
“on a knife edge” following the
latest timetable issues. Earlier
this week, he criticised the
company for telling staff not to
help people with reduced
mobility board their trains if it
meant delaying the service.
Mr Cash said: “The new
timetable is placing massive
strain on infrastructure and
staffing levels that are already
struggling to cope.
“The company is winging it
with potentially disastrous
consequences.”
AN artificial intelligence
revolution to prevent
22,000 cancer deaths by
2033 was being unveiled
today.
Theresa May is
challenging the NHS to
transform healthcare.
The plans will see at
least 50,000 people
diagnosed at an early
stage of prostate,
ovarian, lung or bowel
cancer annually.
This would be done
using new technologies
to cross reference
genetics, habits and
medical records with
national data.
In Macclesfield,
Cheshire, the Prime
Minister was expected
to say: “Smart
technologies to analyse
great quantities of data
quickly and with a
higher degree of
accuracy open up
a whole new field of
medical research.”
It “will not only save
thousands of lives, it will
incubate a new industry
around AI in healthcare,
creating high-skilled
science jobs across
the country”.
She said she wants
Brexit Britain to lead
the fourth industrial
revolution.
Cancer Research UK
chief Sir Harpal Kumar
said: “Advances in
detection technology
depend on intelligent
use of data and have the
potential to save
hundreds of thousands
of lives every year.”

T THE ripe old age of 57
and with a chequered
love life in his wake,
seemingly eternal bachelor Hugh Grant is
finally set to marry for
the first time later this month.
His bride-to-be is UK-based
Swedish TV producer Anna
Eberstein, 39, mother of three of
his five young children and his
on-off-on girlfriend for the past
seven years. News of their engagement emerged after wedding
banns were posted on screens at
the Kensington and Chelsea
register office near the couple’s
£10million London home
The pair met in 2011. Anna,
like Hugh an Oxford graduate, is
a keen tennis player and was a
member at Kensington’s Queen’s
Club where the Duchess of
Cambridge’s sister Pippa plays.
Her father is a judge and her
mother was vice-speaker of the
Swedish parliament.
The veteran actor has had a
string of romances over the
decades. Most famously he dated
actress Liz Hurley for 13 years
from 1987 to 2000, during which
time he rose to stardom in Four
Weddings And A Funeral in 1994.
Incredibly their relationship
survived his infamous arrest in
Los Angeles in 1995 when police
caught him with prostitute
Estella Marie Thompson (also
known as Divine Brown). He has
said of the incident: “You know
in life what’s a good thing to do
and a bad thing to do. I did a bad
thing. I was just an idiot.”
Although his romance with Liz
eventually ended, they remain
great friends. He is godfather to
her son Damian, by American
businessman Steve Bing, and
has said of their enduring
friendship:
“We’re
like
brother and sister. I think
it’s partly because we went
from zero to somewhere
together and we went
through terrible years at
the beginning when neither
of us had any work, living in
a tiny flat. It was bonding.”
Two months ago Hurley
spoke equally affectionately: “I’m very lucky that
31 years into our friendship,
he’s still my best friend.
I see him a lot, I speak to
him a lot. He’s a great dad.”
After their split Grant was
linked with several leading
ladies, including Sandra
Bullock after they starred
in Two Weeks Notice in
2001, Love Actually co-star
Martine McCutcheon in 2003,
and Drew Barrymore from
the 2007 movie Music And
Lyrics. He also dated socialite
Jemima
Goldsmith,
ex-wife of Pakistani cricket star
Imran Khan, from 2004 to 2007.
But it’s since turning 50 in 2010
that Grant’s private life has
become somewhat complicated.

EX-PARTNER: Jemima Goldsmith
had a son, John, in September
2012, and that December Miss
Hong also had a son, Felix, after
which Grant wrote on Twitter:
“Am thrilled my daughter now
has a brother. Adore them both
to an uncool degree. They have
a fab mum.”
In December 2015 Grant had
his fourth child in four years, a
daughter with Miss Eberstein.
The couple had their third baby
– his fifth – earlier this year, news
Liz Hurley let slip during an
interview. She said: “He had
another one last week. He has
five. He was more than 50 when
he spawned them all.”
When asked if she was shocked
by it, she responded: “No, he’s an
enchanting dad. Really, really
sweet,” before jokingly adding,
“Having these kids has transformed him from a very miserable person into a fairly miserable
person. It’s improved him.”
K
SOMETHING NEW: Hugh will
marry Anna, above. With
former partner Liz Hurley, left
The actor, who is estimated to
be worth £40million, has had five
children in the past seven years,
two of them with Chinese receptionist Tinglan Hong. She lives in
a townhouse in Fulham said to
have been bought for her by
Grant. After a brief fling she
gave birth to Grant’s first
child, daughter Tabitha, in
September 2011.
Grant’s spokesman said at
the time: “He and the mother
had a fleeting affair and while
this was not planned, Hugh
could not be happier.”
Four months after Tabitha’s
birth Grant was expecting
another baby, this time with
his now bride-to-be Anna.
Three months later, it
emerged that Miss Hong was
pregnant by the actor again –
meaning that for a few months
in 2012, the two women’s pregnancies overlapped.
Still with me? Miss Eberstein
HOUGH fiercely protective of his private life, in
April 2012 Grant spoke
openly about fatherhood on an
American chat show, revealing:
“Everyone was right all these
years, saying, ‘Hugh, why don’t
you have some children? It
changes your life.’ Now that
I have a child, it is life-changing
and I recommend it. Get some.”
More recently he commented:
“It’s just lovely to have all that
love around. Suddenly you love
someone more than yourself. It’s
unheard of in my case and they
love you and it’s all enchanting.”
Perhaps the fact that he’s
finally settling down in his private life is a factor in his career
being on the upturn again too.
After getting rave reviews in
last year’s hit Paddington 2
movie he is now playing disgraced politician Jeremy Thorpe
in the acclaimed new BBC One
drama A Very English Scandal,
which debuted last night.
For now,though, it appears
that his real-life partner is Anna
Eberstein when they tie the knot
later this month. A case of love,
actually, at last for Hugh Grant?

WHILE Prince Harry proposed to Meghan
Markle when they were roasting a chicken,
he was not always as enthusiastic about
the popular British dish.
Remembering his days as Princess
Diana’s chef at Kensington Palace, Darren
McGrady says roast chicken was regularly
on the menu for her and the boys. However,
he now reveals: “I came back to do dinner
and there was a note on the table. It said,
‘Darren, please cancel the roast chicken
and vegetables tonight for dinner and give
the boys pizza instead.’ ”
While the said note was supposedly
signed by the boys’ nanny, McGrady
explains: “It was in 10-year-old writing.
Harry wrote it.”
OBSERVERS were quick to comment on
the unlikely sight of outspoken Tory veteran
Sir Nicholas Soames –
grandson of Sir Winston
Churchill – sat next to
David Beckham, at the
Royal Wedding.
Soames, pictured, has
not been a fan of
Beckham’s quirky fashion
choices over the years.
Noting the former England
captain’s memorable
decision to wear a sarong in the 1990s the
70-year-old once publicly complained: “I think
David Beckham is a great footballer but why
does he want to go around dressed in a hair
band and a skirt?”
While the pair presumably did not get the
chance to discuss sartorial matters
traditionalist Soames would doubtlessly be
unimpressed to hear claims Beckham was
chewing gum during the ceremony.
AMONG those deeply moved by the royal
nuptials was New Labour grandee Lord
Mandelson who gushed on ITV’s Peston
On Sunday: “People all over the country
are going to feel inspired. They’re all going
to want to run out and get married now
just like Harry and Meghan.”
He surprisingly added: “Even I’m now
wondering whether I should finally tie the
knot with my partner after 20 years of
living together.”
Mandelson was referring to Brazilian
other half Reinaldo Avila da Silva, who was
granted British citizenship in 2005. The
former cabinet minister resisted calls to
propose live on camera.
FELLOW Labour politician Angela Eagle,
whose twin sister Maria is also an MP, is
reminded their careers have “risen almost
in parallel”. Having represented Wallasey
since 1992, ex-frontbencher Angela is at pains
to point out on Radio 5 Live: “I was born first
and I got elected first.” She unconvincingly
adds: “We’re not remotely competitive at all!”
LONG famous for her raunchy novels,
Jilly Cooper, pictured, admits a marriage
guidance book she released almost half a
century ago was not
entirely truthful.
“I have never practised
what I preached,” writes
Cooper, 81, in The Lady
magazine on her 1969
tome How To Stay
Married.
She adds: “I advocated
total honesty about
money being essential in
marriage and that ‘couples should always
know what the other is spending’. That
from a wife who regularly smuggled new
clothes into her wardrobe, ripping off the
price tag, lying: ‘This old thing?’ ”
WHAT would the Duke of Edinburgh have
made of the romantic sight of Harry and
Meghan getting into a Jaguar E-Type?
His biographer Gyles Brandreth recalls
the 96-year-old once cheekily telling him:
“Whenever you see a man opening the car
door for his wife it’s either a new car or a
new wife.”

Lifeline to save nation’s mighty oaks
Oak trees once provided the timber for the warships in Nelson’s Navy
THE mighty oak, symbol of Britain’s
power and glory, is to be given a
lifeline as it faces up to the threat of
pests and disease, it was revealed
last night.
The nation’s 121 million oak trees,
which can live for 1,000 years and once
provided timber for Nelson’s Navy,
are under attack as never before.
The threat has been exacerbated
by the global trade in plants which
allows the accidental importation of
pests, such as beetles.
Oaks are vital for wildlife, supporting up to 300 species of insects,
30 types of birds such as woodpeckers
and nuthatches, and 300 lichens.
Biosecurity Minister Lord Gardiner
will today reveal Government backing
for a campaign to investigate the
health of oaks and how to protect
them. It is building on a £37million
Government commitment to tree
OK! MAGAZINE – FIRST FOR ROYAL NEWS!

and plant research. The Action
Oak Partnership is seeking to raise
£15million for research.
The campaign is backed by Prince
Charles and Oscar-winning actress
Dame Judi Dench who revealed her
love of trees in a recent documentary.
At the Chelsea Flower Show Lord
Gardiner was to say: “Protecting our
country from pests and diseases, so
our trees and plants can thrive, is a
priority for this Government. We are
proud to be backing this campaign.
“The partnership is a one-off opportunity to shape the future of our oak
trees and make sure they continue to
have a place in our landscape.
“The combined knowledge of all the
organisations involved will be vital in
protecting these majestic trees,
contributing to help us be the first
generation to leave the environment
in a better state than we found it.’’
Duchy of Cornwall head forester
Geraint Richards said: “The oak is
our most important tree, an iconic
species and the provider of numerous
benefits to us and our environment.
“We must do all that we can to
preserve the health of our oak trees
for future generations.’’
The Woodland Trust’s Beccy
Speight said: “We need to take a
serious look at the threats our trees
and woods are facing.
“As we approach a post-Brexit
world, we need to take opportunities

to make the UK’s landscape more
resilient, and combat invasive pests
and diseases head on.
“Our shared responsibilities span
from ensuring the supply of new,
UK-sourced saplings to better care
for our ancient trees.”
Last month the Royal Horticultural
Society said Brexit will give Britain
the chance to improve its approach to
plant health and to stop imports of
diseases such as Dutch elm.
Threats to oak trees include acute
oak decline, which may be linked to a
bark beetle, wilt disease caused by
fungus, the American bacteria Xylella
fastidiosa and processionary moths.
The partnership is backed by
bodies including the Woodland Trust,
Woodland Heritage, National Trust,
Royal Botanical Gardens Kew and
the Forestry Commission.

W
HAT is the first thing
to enter your mind
when you think of
someone playing
computer games?
The chances are it’s a
teenage boy sitting in his bedroom
and staring at a screen in the
semi-darkness.
But new statistics reveal that
the average gamer isn’t in fact a
teenager, but an adult in their 40s.
What’s more, according to a
survey of 1,200 people by
innovation charity Nesta, women
are now more likely to play video
games than men.
Three keen gamers tell us why
playing is the perfect way to
unwind.
I can connect with
all my friends online
LAURA
WILLIAMS, 29,
an account
executive, lives
in Crowborough,
East Sussex,
with her partner
Scott, 34, an IT
worker
IT’S great to
hear that more
and more
women are
playing video
games, although
I must admit I had no idea that
they are now more likely to play
them than men.
People are still a bit surprised
when I tell them that I love
gaming.
But I certainly give my male
friends a run for their money
on first-person shooter games
such as Halo – much to their
amazement.
My love of gaming started as a
child when my family got a PC
and me, my sister and my dad
would have competitions against
each other playing games like
Tomb Raider.
I liked using logic to solve
puzzles and it gave me a sense
of achievement to move onto the
next level.
I begged my parents for a
PlayStation 2 when they first came
out, but in the end I had to wait
until I moved out, by which time
PlayStation 4 was on the shelves.
Now gaming is a regular part of
my week. I love grabbing a
controller after a stressful day at
work and doing something
completely different to my day
job, which involves lots of writing
and sending emails.
Luckily my partner Scott is also
gaming mad and we can both
play together.
Although sometimes I like to
zone out from the real world
completely and play on my own.
Most people my age spend time
drinking or going to the gym after
work, so playing video games can
seem like a nerdy hobby.
But it’s actually a great way of
connecting with friends who live
far away.
Some of our pals live a
three-hour drive away in
Cambridge, and while we might
not be able to hop in the car on
a weekday evening to see them,
we can talk to them online while
playing the latest game.
The great thing about gaming
is anyone can give it a go.
I’d like to see more female
characters in games as well as
women who are less scantily clad.
Usually their battle armour
wouldn’t be much use in case of
a real attack because it only just
covers the essentials.
But on the whole gaming is
brilliant fun.
Let’s not leave it to the boys.

As women overtake men
as the biggest players of
video games, three fans
tell us why it’s the
perfect way to unwind
We love to play
together as a family
MERNIE
GILMORE, 40, a
journalist, lives
in Surbiton,
London, with
her husband
Alasdair, 40,
chief executive
of a trade
association,
and their two
children
Harry, 10, and
James, six
WITH a
husband and two sons, I live in a
house full of Lego, football and
testosterone.
So it should come as no surprise
that I also share my home with
an ever-growing number of gaming
consoles.
At last count we had a Nintendo
Switch, an Xbox One, a rather
elderly PlayStation and a couple
of handheld devices to boot.
But the truth is, that suits me
just fine. I love gaming – although
it’s not a passion I thought
I shared with many other women
my age.
So I was surprised to hear new
research had discovered that not
only is the average player 43 years
old, but women are actually more
likely to play than men.
People often assume I enjoy
computer games because it is
something I can do with my sons
however my love affair with
gaming pre-dates my children by
quite some time.
I first caught the bug when I was
in my early teens. My brother
Huston, who was 10, was given a
Nintendo NES and a copy of
Super Mario Bros 3 for Christmas.
I initially resented the new
gadget because it took over our
only TV screen, interrupting my
Neighbours and Home and Away
habit.
But when my brother asked me
to try two-player mode, I found to
my amazement I enjoyed it.
I played until I finished
university but when I moved to
London and started working,
I forgot about gaming.
Then, when my eldest son Harry
was a few months old, my husband
Alasdair bought a Nintendo Wii.
The next thing I knew I was
spending hours of maternity leave
on Wii Tennis while baby Harry
snoozed in a bouncer beside me.
Now gaming is something I do
with my whole family.
However, I don’t only play when
they want to – I’m just as happy to
while away a few hours by myself.
I find it relaxing and love the
challenge of moving from level to
level. And I’ll never give up
perfecting my racing technique in
the hope that one day I might beat
my husband, who remains – to my
great irritation – the undisputed
Mario Kart champion in our
household.
I’m very proud to
be a granny gamer
HELEN
WALMSLEYJOHNSON, 62,
a writer, lives
in Rutland,
East Midlands
WHEN I tell my
friends that I
love playing
video games,
they often look
a bit taken
aback.
“Wouldn’t you
rather go out for
a nice walk?” they ask, aghast.
But although I love country
walks, for me there’s nothing
better for stress reducing than
racing around an imaginary track.
I started gaming when my
daughters, now in their 30s, were
still at home.
I was always charging batteries
for the Game Boy console and
breaking up spats about whose
turn it was to play next. In the end
I picked up the device myself and I
haven’t put it down since.
When my grandchildren came
along, gaming was something we
could share. I got instant “cool
points” for being able to talk
about the latest Lego game
without sounding like a real idiot.
And they were even more
impressed when they saw how
good I was at racing games like
Crash Bandicoot.
But more than a way of
connecting with my children and
grandchildren, it’s something I
love to do when I’m on my own.
If I’ve had a tough day, switching
on a console to play a few games
makes me feel much better.
Although I have to confess I
sometimes end up playing through
the evening and into the small
hours because it’s so addictive.
Some people take up knitting at
my age but I’m terrible at making
jumpers and scarves. I’d much
rather kill a few virtual zombies.
¬ #LetsPlayMay is a UK-wide
campaign encouraging people
of all ages to give gaming a go.
A number of console games
are available on promotion at
selected retailers across the
country this month.

When I was growing up I spent
a lot of time hanging around the
snooker halls of Soho with my dad.
It has always been a magical place
for me and one of the things I love
about Soho is that although it is
bursting with wonderful bars and
restaurants, there is always
somewhere new to discover. My
clubbing days might be behind me
now but I still enjoy regular nights
out in the West End.
Laila and I belong to the private
members’ club Soho House and it’s
such a relaxing place to spend time.

I guess I wouldn’t be living the life
I have now without snooker and
although it has become more of a job
than a pleasure, it obviously plays a
central part in my life.
As a child I always had strong
hand-eye coordination and I was
naturally good at tennis and golf.

Five times world champion snooker player
RONNIE O’SULLIVAN, 42, lives in Essex
with his partner, actress Laila Rouass, 46
The first time I played snooker I was
eight. I had talent but didn’t begin
competing until I was 15.
As a youngster I was mesmerised
by the game and spent all my spare
time down at the snooker club.
Back then Steve Davis was my
absolute hero and I lived and
breathed snooker. However these
days I prefer a bit of balance and
I like to have other pleasures in my
life too.

3 COOKING
I used to be someone who paid
absolutely no attention to my diet
and I just ate whenever and
whatever. Then a few years ago
I started to put on weight and after
realising how much it was getting
me down, a good friend offered to
teach me to cook.
Each week he would pop round
and show me how to make a new
dish. To my surprise, I started to
really enjoy cooking and to think
more carefully about my diet.
Now I regularly visit a nutritionist
and I am all about meal plans and
healthy snacks. I honestly can’t
believe how much
better I feel.
much. I am happiest in jeans and a
T-shirt and I’ve never really seen the
point of spending a lot of money on
my wardrobe.
Until recently I always bought all
my shirts and suits off the peg but
for my birthday, a friend insisted on
treating me to a tailored suit.
I think he thought I needed to
smarten up for television and he
probably had a point.
However now that I’ve worn my
suit, I have to admit I’m sold. It
looks and feels so good that
I might even splash out on some
designer shirts.
5RUNNING
About 15 years ago a really good
friend of mine persuaded me to
join him for a run and it was a
life-changing moment for me.
As someone who had never paid
much attention to my fitness,
I unexpectedly caught the running
bug and soon I was racking up
40 miles a week.
Running is something I have grown
to love as it doesn’t just help me to
manage my weight and boost my
energy levels, it always leaves me
feeling incredibly fit and
relaxed too.

• Released to mark Her Majesty’s

angle the coin and part of
the design fades from view!
Struck in solid 22 carat gold, the coin features a passage from Her Majesty’s Coronation Oath.

households can own one
This is such a rare limited edition that a Holo-Proof security feature has been introduced to prevent copying.
Set behind the words in the design is a cameo portrait of Queen Elizabeth II inspired by the original 1953
coinage portrait: tilt the coin on an angle and this portrait fades from view, like a holographic image.
• Struck in solid 22 carat gold,
the purity of all sovereigns for
the last 200 years

B
Y DAD has always
kept a good stock of
descriptions up his
sleeve, especially
when it comes to
people’s faces. “Face
like a gas-man’s mac” was one
memorable verdict, along with “face
like a wet Monday” and “face like
the back end of a bus”. He excelled
himself on the late Jeremy Thorpe,
whose features he compared to
those of “a pox-doctor’s clerk”.
I’m guessing perhaps that most
people, like my father, only became
acquainted with the pale, haggard,
miserable features of Mr Thorpe in
the aftermath of the events
described in A VERY ENGLISH
SCANDAL (Sunday, BBC1). There
were plainly some other sides to the
man, as this brilliant oddity from Dr
Who writer Russell T. Davies
DXkk9Xpc`j

demonstrates. Mocking Harold
Wilson in the House of Commons
dining room, charming the boots off
the assorted coppers and guards at
the Palace of Westminster, doing
sprightly violin and piano duets
with his mum, Thorpe (Hugh
Grant) had a panache we wouldn’t
associate with today’s politicians.
It’s easy to wonder if a great
statesman was really ruined by the
prejudices of the age, but Davies
doesn’t go for such an easy version
of events. If Thorpe was vulnerable
because of being gay, he also homed
in on those who were vulnerable
themselves, or seemed it at least.
He just got it wrong in the case of
troubled young stable-hand
Norman Josiffe (Ben Whishaw),
seducing him, setting him up in a
flat, then swiftly tiring of his moods
and demons. Without an awful lot
of conscience-searching, it seemed,
he was happy to have Josiffe
threatened and silenced, the rise
and rise of Jeremy Thorpe being the
only issue of importance.
As this witty but thoughtful TV
treatment tells it, though, a scandal
always involves at least two people.
And as the blackmailing, chaos
bringing, eternally returning Josiffe,
Whishaw turns in a performance
every bit as spiffing as Grant’s

The National Health Service is
something a lot of us take for granted,
but it’s only when we are admitted to
hospital that we come face to face
with one of the most dedicated
workforces in Britain. It can be a
humbling feeling when you learn just
how many hours your nurse will be
putting into their shift. Tonight Paul
O’Grady (left) hosts a ceremony
marking the 70th anniversary of the
NHS, which honours the frontline staff
and gives insight into the vital work
they do every day. Among those
leading the tributes at the ceremony
are Prince William, the Duchess of
Cornwall, Elton John, Shirley Bassey,
Simon Cowell, Tom Jones and
Amanda Holden.
(but without the sheepskin coat,
sadly), asking football-themed
questions of a range of sporting
folk. The result wasn’t terribly
exciting, it was more or less an open
goal for fellow commentator
Jonathan Pearce.
We then had the odd spectacle of
a man marking his retirement from
a lifetime of sports presenting by
awarding a trophy to a sports
presenter who wasn’t retiring.
Things might have been perked
up if Motty had given us one of his
legendary quotes. Alas, he confined
himself to saying Alex Scott played
for Arsenal Ladies, no matter how
often she reminded him that the
team was called Arsenal Women’s
Football Club.
Maybe, to resurrect one of his
better lines, Motty already had the
taste of retirement in his nostrils.

When the Grenfell Tower
fire broke out on June 14,
2017, Britain prayed that
everyone would get out
safely. Sadly 72 people
didn’t and when the
flames eventually died
down the lives of hundreds
were changed forever.

that led to those tragic

blame for the disaster.
Thorpe. The past plays into actors’
performances and Ben Whishaw’s
recent role as the voice of
Paddington Bear did here.
Josiffe come across like a dark
version of Paddington, turning up
all lost and cute with his little
suitcase, not seeming to
understand the world, but actually
better equipped to survive than
Thorpe himself. “He’s not weak”,
Thorpe’s pal Peter Bessel (Alex
Jennings) pointed out last night, as
their recent attempts to silence
Josiffe had foundered. “He tells the
truth. No one else does this. In this
whole world, there’s Norman.”

Buy-out hope for cremation f irm after £7.5m investment What the
UK specialist Pure Cremation
has attracted £7.5million in funding
from Puma Investments amid hopes
that a growing trend for simpler
after-death goodbyes will open the
door for a stock market flotation or
US buy-out.
Eliot Kaye, an investment director
at Puma, said that his firm was
putting money behind what he
hopes is a “winning combination” of
an experienced management
team with a “very disruptive business model within a very established
market”.
Pure Cremation – founded in 2015
by Bryan and Catherine Powell –
specialises in what is referred to as
direct cremation, which involves the
company collecting and caring for
the deceased, who are then cremated without a service or mourners
present. Ashes are returned to the
family within weeks.
Mr Kaye said he has been
impressed with the company’s traction over the last six months since it
pumped the first £5million into Pure
Cremation back in November.
Puma will put the remaining
£2.5million into the business over
the coming months, helping open

blame, according to the report.
R e s e a r c h b y R PC s h o w e d
that sales at the UK’s top
20 ­e -commerce only retailers
jumped by 23 per cent last year to
­£ 8.4billion while footfall on the
high street continued to slump.
Tim Moynihan of RPC said: “It
is hard for retailers to shed expensive excess space as their lease
agreements restrict that option.
“Increases in the minimum
wage and a rising rates bill also
make it very hard to cut overheads
to make up for sales lost to
the internet.”
Meawnhile, a fall in job applications from EU workers has eased
but firms remain worried about
hiring skilled staff after Brexit,
says a report.
The manufacturers’ organisation EEF said almost a fifth of
companies saw a drop in applications from European citizens in
the past year.
++the share hunter++NICHOLAS HYETT++HARGREAVES LANSDOWN++
William Hill investors will have mixed
feelings towards regulators this week.
Until now sports betting has been illegal
in all but four US states. Last Monday, the
US Supreme Court cleared the way for
sports betting to be legalised nationwide.
An estimated $150million (£111million)
a year is wagered with illegal bookies in
the US. Turning this black market white
presents a huge opportunity.
William Hill has been operating in the
US since 2012, albeit restricted to Las
Vegas and Nevada. It’s a fraction of the
wider group at the moment, just 3 per cent
NICHOLAS HYETT of revenue last year.
But investments ramped up ahead of
EQUITY ANALYST
Hargreaves Lansdown the court’s decision. William Hill US
reported
a 31 per cent increase in
www.hl.co.uk
Lucrative US market silver lining for William Hill
amounts wagered, and 62 per cent
increase in revenue earlier this month.
Despite those early signs, and a head
start on many domestic rivals who lack
experience of sports betting, we’d advise
investors against counting their winnings
just yet.
The last time William Hill rolled the dice
on international expansion it lost. The
Australian business has now been sold,
but caused repeated profit warnings. Regulators this side of the pond had
some less welcome news.
The decision to cut the maximum stake
on fixed odd betting terminals (FOBTs)
from £100 to £2 has been a long time
coming. It’s unlikely to have caught
anyone by surprise, but it’s still painful.
Betting machines account for
29 per cent of William Hill’s revenues.
Slashing the maximum stake is expected
to cut that by 35-45 per cent – with
70 per cent of total machine revenue
generated by stakes of more than £2.
That would result in around 900 William
Hill shops becoming loss making.
Underlying operating profit is expected
to be £70-100million lower following the
cap. Given William Hill’s dividend policy,
which sees it pay out 50 per cent of
underlying earnings, dividends will be
lower too.
On balance though William Hill probably
finished last week better off than it started.
FOBTs have been a political football for
years, whereas sports betting is one of
the few forms of gambling growing.

Masar to show his colours
SHEIKH
MOHAMMED,
successful in two Derbys but
never in his famous blue
Godolphin silks, will be hoping
Masar can make it a first for
‘The Boys in Blue’ in the
Epsom Classic on Saturday
week.
The sheikh enjoyed success
with
Lammtarra
(1995),
carrying the colours of Saeed
bin Al Maktoum, and New
Approach (2008) who was
triumphant in his wife Princess
Haya’s green silks.
Masar, son of New Approach,
romped home in Craven Stakes
at Newmarket where he had
Roaring Lion, the impressive
winner of last week’s Dante
Stakes, over nine lengths
behind him in third place.
Since
that
breathtaking
performance in April the colt
By Chris Goulding
returned to Newmarket where
he finished late to snatch third
place behind Saxon Warrior in
the 2,000 Guineas. Again, he
had Roaring Lion behind him
in fifth place.
But that performance
has gone unnoticed by
the
punters
and
bookmakers.
With
Saxon Warrior heading
the betting at 4-6,
Roaring Lion is second
best at 6-1 with Masar
a 16-1 chance.
Charlie Appleby, who
trains the colt, believes he
has the right pedigree for
Epsom and has the agility to
handle the unique track.

Guineas well,” said Appleby,
pictured. “He’s grown up with
every run. On
pedigree he
should get the trip.
“You can switch him off in a
race, but we’ve all got the
favourite to beat.”
William Buick, in the saddle
when the colt ran in the
Guineas and Craven
Stakes, will retain
the ride.
“William said after
he rode him in the
Guineas that he
rode like a horse
that stays further. I
would
not
have
thought he would have
a problem with the track,”
added Appleby. “Although they
are not the same, he’s handled
the undulations at Newmarket
well twice.”

SPAIN’S Adrian
Otaegui has his
sights on a Ryder
Cup debut after
lifting his second
European Tour title
with a two-shot
win over Benjamin
Hebert of France
in the final of the
inaugural Belgian
Knockout in
Antwerp.
When asked about
making Europe’s
Ryder Cup team,
which will be
captained by
Thomas Bjorn in
Paris later this
year, Otaegui said:
“Thomas, if you’re
looking at me, I like
match play!”
Scotland’s
David Drysdale

WORLD OF SPORT
Klitschko in November
2015.
He
therefore
represents the type of
opponent Fury and his
new promoter Frank
Warren have targeted
since his comeback was
confirmed.
Seferi is expected to
be
durable
without
posing a significant threat
over the course of their
scheduled 10 rounds,
giving Fury, 29, the chance
to shed some of the
ring rust that will have
accumulated during his
time out while serving a
doping ban and suffering
from medical issues.

RAFAEL NADAL
took full advantage
of a weather delay
to beat defending
champion Alexander
Zverev in a
roller-coaster Italian
Open final.
Nadal, right,
was a break
down in the
deciding set
when rain
forced a
second
stoppage of
the match, with
Zverev having won
nine of the previous
12 games.
Yet when play
resumed after a delay
❑ JOSH WARRINGTON
hopes his stunning win
over
Lee
Selby
on
Saturday will be his
Ricky Hatton moment.
Warrington upset the
odds to claim the IBF
featherweight title at his
beloved Elland Road.
Leeds’
first
world
champion hopes it will
catapult him to stardom,
like Hatton in 2005 when
he beat Kostya Tszyu.
“I don’t think I’m going
to become a national
hero overnight but people
might start giving me a
bit more credit for what I
FURY: Return to the ring
have achieved,” he said.

BRITAIN’S Simon Yates
is taking nothing for
granted despite winning
stage 15 of the Giro
d’Italia to extend his
overall lead ahead of
tomorrow’s
potentially
vital time trial.
Mitchelton-Scott rider Yates
won his third stage of the race
so far by 41 seconds from
Astana’s Miguel Angel Lopez
while Sunweb’s Tom Dumoulin,
who is second overall, was third
on the same time as Lopez.
With bonus seconds applied,
the 25-year-old Yates now leads
Dumoulin by two minutes and
11 seconds, although world
time-trial champion Dumoulin
is expected to take a chunk out
of that advantage when the race
resumes after today’s rest day
with a race against the clock
starting in Trento.
“It’s a good gap but Dumoulin
could take two minutes out of
me in a time trial,” said Yates.
“I’ve been fighting since Israel
to have a good gap. I’m happy
with that gap but it could
disappear in 35 kilometres.
We’ll have to see.”
Yates
attacked
on
the
penultimate climb of the 176km
stage from Tolmezzo to Sappada
and got away from Dumoulin
and the rest of the contenders
with a second push.
“It was a bit of instinct,”
said Yates. “When we
came off the descent I
saw a little gap to a
few guys so I asked
Jack Haig to push
the pace.
“Then
George

really hard from the
very bottom.
“I chose my moment
to go. They responded

Yates is the first man to win
three stages at the Giro while in
the pink jersey since Gilberto
Simoni in 2003, with Simoni
going on to claim overall victory
that year.
“I didn’t know that,” said
Yates. “I do like the stats,
I like the numbers.

“He had his team on the front

Yates celebrated with three

RUGBY LEAGUE: MAGIC WEEKEND
HULL KR

By Ross Heppenstall
LIAM HARRIS made a
dream debut for Hull
by scoring a try which
helped inflict defeat on
his former club and
bitter rivals Hull KR in
the final game of the
Magic Weekend.
The 21-year-old scrum-half
was

part-timers
Doncaster last week on a
two-and-a-half-year deal to
ease an injury crisis which has
robbed the Black and Whites
of four key playmakers.

months and Albert Kelly

away from fitness, while
Jordan Abdull is sidelined

and
Carlos
Tuimavave will be missing for
the next 10 weeks.
Veteran centre Kirk Yeaman,
34, retired at the end of 2016
but dusted off his boots to
play yesterday, such was the
seriousness of Hull’s plight.
Desperate times call for
drastic remedies but, as Hull
coach Lee Radford discovered
at St James’ Park in the
12th annual Magic Weekend,
they can also have pleasing
results.
Thrust into a starting role
alongside the irrepressible
Jake Connor, boyhood Hull fan
Harris marked his bow with a
31st-minute touchdown and
he celebrated with gusto in
front of his club’s supporters.
Harris left Rovers at the end
of last season after turning
down their offer of a new
contract and instead he signed
a two-year deal at Doncaster,
with whom Hull enjoy a
dual-registration partnership.
Radford, who also handed a
Super League debut to rookie
centre Cameron Scott, said: “I

some of his touches but he
finished the match really
strongly. I was really pleased
with Cameron Scott as well.
“I thought it was a bit early

choice. I’m really pleased with

Thorman lives dream
CHRIS THORMAN was in
dreamland after helping
Huddersfield to victory at his
beloved St James’ Park.
The interim Giants coach has
been given an extended run in
charge following new boss
Simon Woolford’s delay in
arriving from Australia.
This was Huddersfield’s third
straight win under Thorman,
who hails from Wallsend and
played football with Michael
Carrick at school. The former
Huddersfield playmaker said:
“I was born a mile down the

road and for any Geordie to
come here in any sport is
pretty special.”
Danny Brough, typically, was
the chief orchestrator for the
Giants as tries from Aaron
Murphy, Adam O’Brien and
Jake Mamo put them 18-0 up
after 23 minutes.
Wakefield soon hit back but
the Giants sealed the win
through Darnell McIntosh.
we have missing, we’ll take it.
Unbelievably, we have the
third-best attack in the
competition and that’s crazy.
“I
thought
our
pack
marched Rovers up the field
when we needed to. They did
a sterling job and Joe
Westerman was the best player
on the pitch by some distance.”
First-half tries from Scott
Taylor and Harris, plus two
from Jamie Shaul, helped
Radford’s side into a 24-10
interval lead.
Further scores from Jack
Logan and Connor underlined
their dominance, with a
Keiren Moss hat-trick and a
Tommy Lee touchdown not
enough to save Rovers from a
defeat that sent them to the
foot of the table.
With both sides badly
depleted by injury, it was not a
classic encounter and there
were further injuries to Hull’s
Josh Griffin and Rovers duo
Aaron Smith and Junior Vaivai.
But there was no mistaking
the significance of the result for
Hull and their followers at the
final hooter.
Rovers coach Tim Sheens
said: “There is still of ray of
hope that we can get out of
danger as we are just two wins
away from Salford. The effort
was good again but the
execution just wasn’t quite
there. I’m more concerned with
the amount of players we have
out injured.”
Ralph Rimmer, the RFL’s
interim CEO suggested the
Magic Weekend could move
overseas, and possibly to
New York, next year. A crowd
of 38,881 watched Saturday’s
games, while yesterday’s gate
was 25,438, ensuring an overall
weekend attendance of 64,319.
It was the lowest aggregate
crowd in four years at
Newcastle but Rimmer said:
“We have interest from multiple
cities around the world.”
HULL KR – Tries: Moss (3), Lee. Goals:
Shaw (3).
HULL FC – Tries: Shaul (2), Taylor, Harris,
Logan, Connor. Goals: Connor (5).
Watson gets weeding
IAN WATSON vowed to weed
out players who think they are
too good to be dropped after
Salford were embarrassed by
bottom side Catalans.
The weaknesses of the Red
Devils’ small squad were
brutally exposed by the
Dragons, who breathed fire.
Salford coach Watson,
whose side touched down
through Weller Hauraki and
George Griffin, said: “Because
we’ve got limited numbers
some people know they’re
secure, but we need to change

that. Some are standing up and
some aren’t. It’s for us to filter
that out.”
Jodie Broughton scored a
hat-trick while Ben Garcia and
Julian Bousquet were also on
target for Catalans.
Their coach Steve McNamara
said of Magic Weekend: “It’s
a brilliant event. I’ve been out
of the country for the last
three or four and I forgot how
good it was. It’s incredible.”

TOMKINS: Star turn
Wolves
savaged
by Sam
SAM TOMKINS
served up a man-ofthe-match effort as
Wigan underlined
their title pedigree
with a stunning 38-10
destruction of
Warrington.
The full-back is
joining Catalans at
the end of the season
and is determined to
win some silverware
to leave on a high.
Warrington came
into the game on a
10-match winning run
but were reduced to
rubble by Tomkins.
He said: “That was
one of our best
performances of the
season. We’ve got
Warrington again in a
couple of weeks in the
Challenge Cup, so
we’ll take confidence
from this. There won’t
be too many pats on
the back but we can
be happy with that.”
The day began with
leaders St Helens
crushing struggling
Widnes 38-18 to
cement their position
at the summit. The
Saints’ 13th league
victory of the season
was the perfect way
for Justin Holbrook to
celebrate one year in
charge at the club.
The biggest
surprise was
Castleford’s 38-10
thrashing of
defending champions
Leeds. After shipping
six tries, Rhinos coach
Brian McDermott
said: “We were soft in
the first half. It’s very
rare I say that about
my players. We took
some soft options and
conceded soft tries.”

against Durham and had put
on 175 in 28.2 overs when
Jennings made room to
heave Nathan Rimmington
to leg but was bowled for 73.
Karl Brown then added
51 with Davies before the
determination of Durham’s
bowlers
on
a
warm
Manchester afternoon was
rewarded when four wickets
fell for 12 runs, a haul that was
however too little too late.
Meanwhile,
James
Hildreth’s career-best oneday score of 159 propelled
Somerset to an 83-run victory
over Glamorgan at Taunton.
It was the 33-year-old’s
seventh List A hundred. His
brilliant
125-ball
innings
featured eight sixes and
13 fours, helping his side post
372-7 on a prime batting
wicket after losing the toss.
In reply, the visitors made
289 all out as Colin Ingram
top-scored with 85 off 70
balls, hitting nine fours and
two sixes. A crowd of around
3,500 saw 19 sixes in the
match.
Elsewhere, Paul Stirling
equalled his highest score as
Middlesex overcame Kent by
70 runs at Radlett.
The Ireland international
hit a dazzling 125 from
115 deliveries, laying the
foundations for his side to
post 313 for nine.
Despite a spirited 90 from
Heino Kuhn, the visitors –
who
have
started
the
competition with successive
defeats – were bowled out for
243 in the 44th over.
At Headingley, Jeetan Patel
starred with figures of 4-33
before Sam Hain hit a superb
unbeaten 102 as Warwickshire
secured their first win of this
season’s competition, beating
Yorkshire by five wickets.
Patel, the Bears’ captain
and
talismanic
overseas
off-spinner, took all of his
wickets
early
as
the
Vikings slipped to 149-6 in
the 30th over from 80 without
loss. They finished on 247-9
largely thanks to India
batsman Cheteshwar Pujara’s
96-ball 73.
Jonathan Trott contributed
50 along with Hain’s ton as
the Bears reached 248-5 with
25 balls to spare.

IF LOOKS could kill, Owen
Farrell would probably be
in a secure institution
but instead the feared
Faz Frown is helping drive
Saracens back to the top
of the English game.
Having
fallen
at
the
semi-final stage last season,
Saracens
are
back
at
Twickenham to face Exeter
Chiefs on Saturday after
Farrell scored 27 points and
was named man of the
match in a dazzling contest
against Wasps.
The numbers – a record for
a Premiership play-off game
– were impressive enough,
but it is the glowering
leadership England’s tour
captain to South Africa is
giving at Saracens which
has been a major factor in
restoring normal service at
Allianz Park.
“Brad Barritt is the
captain and does a
brilliant job but Owen is
a big part in terms of
making the game plan
and enforcing it with
the boys. He bosses
us around and tells
us where to go,” said
team-mate
Jamie
George.
“The standards he
sets are impeccable.
You’ve got to work your
way up to him.
“Coming into the
team as a 20-year-old,
he had a certain
way about him. He
is
much
more
understanding of
the people he is talking to
and he is getting the best out
of them as a result, which is
what you want from a leader –
but the look is still there.
“He has got such a clever rugby
brain on him that he knows if a
mistake is from a skill error or an
effort error and it is the effort error
that he gives you the look for. That
drives standards.
“The guy’s incredible. For me, he
just keeps getting better and
better. I can’t speak highly enough
of how he is playing and we will
need that next week.”
There is a school of thought
that views the England captaincy,
bestowed on him in Dylan Hartley’s
absence, as a potential burden but
George, who has played with Farrell
since they were 14, believes it will
bring out his absolute best.
“From what we’ve seen here, the
more leadership and responsibility
he is given, the better he gets, the

think Exeter versus Saracens
is a very good final. I wouldn’t
say we go expecting to win. We
go with an expectation of we
know we can play well there.
“Two years ago, we lost by
eight points to Saracens after
not starting well. Last year we
came up with a win against
Wasps with an improved
performance.
“We’ve got to go with an
expectation we will play better
than the last two finals because
that is what you should do.”
more he rises to it. He certainly
leads from the front,” said George.
Saracens are finishing a season
which promised to unravel when
they suffered seven successive
defeats in the dark depths of
winter like a steam train. Their
forward thrust against Wasps,
with Mako Vunipola and Maro
Itoje
on
full
power,
was
frightening and will be hard even
for Exeter to resist on Saturday.
Saracens director of rugby Mark
McCall said: “This is our fourth
final in the last five years in the
Premiership. We’ve been in three
Champions Cup finals in the last
five years. To have those kind of
tallies is an incredible achievement
from the whole group and we want
to go and win it now.
“I thought you saw in the first
20 minutes against Wasps – which
was maybe as good as we have ever
played – the real intent and desire
in the group to do that.”
The one concern is a limping
Billy Vunipola, who was hauled off
at half-time after suffering more
issues with the hamstring problem
that has plagued him of late.
“I think he has a chance to be fit.
He probably won’t train on Monday
or Tuesday, though,” said McCall.
Wasps’ season is over but as ever
they provided some sumptuous
entertainment as it ended. Scoring
five tries in Saracens’ den is
unheard of – but unfortunately
they conceded six.
Their director of rugby Dai
Young said: “We’ve always been up
there with the top two or three
try-scorers in the league every
season – that’s our DNA and we’re
certainly not going to flip it by
taking away from our attacking
rugby.
“But if we want to achieve things
we have to shore up that defence,
control that gain-line and our setpiece. It’s something that will
always be challenged at this level. If
we really want to compete at the
highest level, those are areas where
we have to improve.”

Jack’s pain may
be Hughes’ gain
NATHAN HUGHES could be
in line for an England return if
Wasps team-mate Jack Willis’s
knee issue turns out to be as
serious as feared.
Willis went for a scan
yesterday on the injury he
sustained in the semi-final
defeat by Saracens and is
almost certain to miss the
tour to South Africa.
The uncapped back-row’s
bad luck may open the door for
Hughes, above, who made his
comeback following a 10-week
lay-off after being injured
against France in March.
“He’s not 100 per cent and
needs a bit more game time,
By Neil Squires
but I thought he did pretty
well,” said Wasps director of
rugby Dai Young. “It’s a bit
too early to tell with Jack but
it is not looking great.”
The England squad, minus
the Premiership finalists,
meet up tonight to prepare for
Sunday’s game against the
Barbarians with the future of
defence coach Paul Gustard in
doubt. He has been linked
with the Harlequins job.
Toulon wing Chris Ashton is

FOOTBALL: LOW TARGETS HELP SOUTHGATE
By Peter Edwards
SVEN-GORAN Eriksson
says his England reign
was
blighted
by
expectations that were
“too high” – and believes
the current crop will
benefit from exactly the
opposite.
Eriksson guided England to
two successive World Cup
quarter-finals
and,
with
Russia 2018 just weeks away,
has given manager Gareth
Southgate
some
timely
advice.
“Low expectations will help
very much,” Eriksson said
during an interview with BBC
Radio 5 Live. “During my time
– and also before my time – the
expectation was too high. It
was like winning or nothing –
and it can’t be like that.
“It’s good for this England
squad to not have too much
expectation but I’m also sure
they can do very well in this
World Cup.”
Eriksson believes Southgate
must ignore any outside
influence
during
the
tournament, urging him to
trust his own instincts.
“He must not listen too
much
to
other
people,”
Eriksson said when asked
what advice he would give the
current England manager.
“Inside the squad, yes, but
outside don’t listen, don’t read.
Do it according to your head
and do it simple. That’s the
best thing you can do.”
The Swede also provided an
insight into the team talks he
used to give while in charge,
revealing they would become
more difficult and involved
when the opponent was of
a lesser stature.
“Normally I always had
very short team talks,”
he said. “When you play
with England in the
World Cup or European
Championship, if your
opponent is Germany,
Argentina or Brazil,
you don’t really need to
pep up the players –
they are too pepped up
already.
“So the best team talks
are the ones where you can
keep it normal. If you meet
Germany, don’t do a lot of
extra things just because it’s
Germany. Keep it so the
players are relaxed when they
start the game, because if you
are too much up in the sky you
will not perform.
“You have to be confident
that you are going out to do
the job and know what the job
is expected of you. So my team
talks were very much the same.
But if you play a small team in
qualification then you have to
make it different.” Southgate

‘England
expected
far too
much
from me’
There is
no need
to rush
on Ryan
By Harry Talbot
RYAN SESSEGNON’S
England future will be
assessed after the
summer.
The left winger, who
turned 18 on Friday, has
been omitted from the
World Cup squad and
the Under-21s’ plans for
the Toulon Tournament.
He has scored 16 goals
for Fulham this season
and the Cottagers are
close to a Premier
League return as they
face Aston Villa in the
Championship play-off
final on Saturday.
That match has put
him out of the picture
for Toulon, with England
facing China the same
day, but senior boss
Gareth Southgate says
Sessegnon is in his
future plans.
However, he will be
handled with care, and
Under-21 manager
Aidy Boothroyd insisted
Sessegnon will not be
rushed. Boothroyd
SESSEGNON: Talent
ALONG FOR THE RIDE:
Eriksson selected a
17-year-old Walcott for
the 2006 World Cup
last
week
selected
one
of
the
youngest England squads for
a major tournament,
with
opinion divided on whether it
was a wise move.
Eriksson
picked
Theo
Walcott as a 17-year-old for the
2006 World Cup in Germany
and said Southgate could have
done similar. “When you talk
about all these young
players, you know when you
pick them that they will not
win the World Cup,” he said.
“You are pretty sure about
20 players when you pick your
squad, then you have one
maybe two or three where you
think, ‘Shall I take him?’.
“But these players will never
win the World Cup for you. So
if you can take young players
who are good and you think
they will be good for the future
for England, pick them.
“Because even if they play
two minutes or two games or
not at all, it’s a big experience
for them and they will learn
and will be more ready for the
next tournament.”
As for key men who could
indeed help England win the
World Cup, Eriksson stressed
the current side was much
more about the entire team
rather than one or two star
players.
He said: “I think it’s very
much that you build a team.
And I can see England being
very interesting because they
have good players – very
hungry players. Not a lot of
experience but hungry.
“And then they have pace up
front and in big games today
pace
up
front
is
very
important.”

FOOTBALL: FA CUP FINAL
City are built to
dominate now
PEP GUARDIOLA’S “relentless”
nature
means
record-breaking
champions Manchester City will not
ease up next season, according to
chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak.
City became the first top-flight
team to secure 100 points and broke
numerous other records as they
turned the Premier League title
contest into a one-horse race.
No club has won back-to-back titles
since Manchester United won their
third in a row in 2009, but Khaldoon
says Guardiola, who signed a new
three-year contract last week,
has City’s young squad geared
up for a similar domination.
In his end-of-season review,
Khaldoon, right, said: “We
have real experiences, real
learnings from how we
managed our seasons following
the last two times we won.
“We’ve worked hard to
build the squad,
not only for this
season but for
many seasons
to come.

Pep who is relentless. There is not
going to be any contentment or
relaxation here.
“I have no doubt we are going to
come back and be hungry, and be
more aggressive and we’ll continue to
grow and improve.”
City have targeted Napoli midfielder
Jorginho and could make a renewed
bid for Leicester’s Riyad Mahrez.
And Khaldoon insists the club has
learned from past mistakes in the
transfer market and will only
strengthen the squad with
players with the right mentality,
rather than risk destabilising
the team spirit Guardiola has
carefully fostered. He said:
“You don’t get to 100 points
without a full, high-quality
squad. Any additions have
to improve it.

FORMER Manchester United
midfielder Paul Scholes has
laid into Alexis Sanchez
following the FA Cup final,
claiming his performances
“can’t get any worse”.
Chile forward Sanchez was
singled out for criticism for
his poor display in the defeat
at Wembley on Saturday.
“His performances, well,
they have to improve,” Scholes
told BT Sport. “They can’t get
any worse, to be honest with
you. The first few games of
next season are vital to him.
He needs to get fans believing
again and believing they are
going to get close to
Manchester City.”
Scholes also reserved some
of his criticism for another
United player who has been
under fire, French midfielder
Paul Pogba.
“United need a big player,”
said Scholes. “Paul Pogba
does not win you games on his
own. Eden Hazard does. Alexis
Sanchez doesn’t, he has shown
that since January. They
thought he could, but what
we’ve seen...
“They need two magical
players. I think they’ve got
really good players. They
haven’t got a Hazard, Cristiano
Ronaldo, Lionel Messi.
“And I know many teams

between United and Chelsea
was the quality in Hazard, we

don’t have that.”

TANNER
COMMENT
JOSE MOURINHO needs to
release the handbrake and
turn Manchester United into
a 90-minute team again to
bring back the major prizes
to Old Trafford.
The FA Cup final mirrored so
many of United’s performances this
season – a flat first half followed by a
much improved second period.
In some games it has been the
other way around – a good first half
followed by a cautious second.
Mourinho was right in claiming
United were the better team and
did not deserve to lose – the first
time he has been beaten in a major
cup final in England.
But if they had started the game
on the front foot and not worried
so much about Eden Hazard, the
outcome might have been different.
As expected, Mourinho gave
Ander Herrera the man-marking job
on Hazard since he had performed it
to good effect before.
But Hazard was clever enough to
move to the other side of the pitch
for the decisive moment.
He capitalised on Phil Jones’
hesitation to race on to Cesc
Fabregas’s through ball and that
forced the desperate Jones to bring
him down from behind in the box.
The penalty awarded ultimately
settled the outcome.
United fans were left frustrated
that Mourinho paid too much
attention to Chelsea’s strengths and
did not go for the throat against a
side that had not been in good form.
Former United player Phil Neville
echoed the thoughts of many when
he argued that if they had started
with the verve, pace and adventure
that they showed after the break, it
might have been a different story.
“United came out for the second
half like we thought they might do in
the first,” said Neville. “They started
to impose themselves, create chances
and play on the front foot. But they
had no quality in the final third.
“Chelsea ensured there was no
space in behind their defence,
United had to go from side to side
and rely on crosses but without
Romelu Lukaku they had no
presence in the box.
“Losing is a big disappointment
for them. No one – least of all Jose –
will be celebrating finishing second
in the league.”
Neville warned: “It’s a big summer
for United. They are still a long way
from catching City. They have the

nucleus of a good squad but Jose still
thinks the mentality isn’t there.”
Dutch legend Ruud Gullit was also
disappointed by United’s approach
given the pressure was off them.
“Chelsea were a wounded animal.”
said the former Chelsea player and
manager. “They hadn’t played well
for a couple of weeks whereas
United had clinched their place in
the Champions League and could go
for it. But it didn’t happen.
“United adapted to Chelsea, not
the other way around. Manchester
City have shown all season that if
you are a good team, you make your
opponent adapt to how you play.
“It seemed strange to see United
mirror Chelsea with three at the
back, five in the middle and two up
front. It didn’t make any sense.”
Apart from needing some fresh
faces and the right winning mentality,
Mourinho needs to get the best out
of Paul Pogba, who typified his
season by failing to dominate.
He produced some good moments,
like his 50-yard surge just before the

that chance went begging
break to set up a chance for Marcus
Rashford, and some bad – no more
so than wasting United’s best chance
when glancing an unmarked header
wide in the second half when virtually
standing on the penalty spot.
Alexis Sanchez again left everyone
asking where the player who looked
so impressive for Arsenal was.
His workrate cannot be faulted
but he looks jaded, cannot seem
to get away from a defender
and constantly fritters away
possession.
Mourinho will be praying a
rare summer’s break from

will
rejuvenate the Chile striker.
But his ‘tough-love’
approach appears
to have
drained the
confidence
out of a trio
of talented
young
players in
Rashford,
Anthony Martial and Luke Shaw,
the latter not even making the bench
at Wembley.
Rashford improved after an awful
first half and was twice denied by
Chelsea keeper Thibaut Courtois,
while Martial looked lively when he
came on but his end product was
poor. And at the close of the
season, it is fair to say
both strikers have not
made the step forward
expected of them this
term.
Whether that is
Mourinho’s fault or
theirs
is
up
for
debate.
But next season, if
they are still at
Old Trafford,
will be a big

“The only team who

Obviously, they play

“But we are second
and we are in the
Champions League
next year, which is the
most important thing.
“As you saw in the
final we played good
football but Chelsea
have some players
who can punish every
mistake – the way
Eden Hazard did – so
we have to accept
that and see where we
can improve and next
year try to win some
trophies.”
Matic has lost in
two successive cup
finals – after being in
the Chelsea side
beaten by Arsenal
last May – but insists
the latest
disappointment is
not as bad because
United gave their all.
“The most
important thing is
that we can look in
the mirror and know
we gave our best,” he
said.
“It’s more of a
problem when you
lose and feel you
didn’t give your best.
“The team was
feeling sad after the
game – we know we
deserved more – but
this is football.
“In a final anything
can happen and now
we have to be focused
on the next
challenge.”
Matic said no
fingers were pointed
at Phil Jones after he
blundered for
Hazard’s 22nd-minute
penalty which
ultimately won the
cup.
“Everyone can
make a mistake –
sometimes I make
mistakes – but this is
football,” said Matic.
“Phil worked for

the team, he always
fights for the team.
“I can’t blame him
because he always

“He needs to forget

‘I cannot change, I

FROM BACK PAGE
you must know who you are
taking on, who you are
charging for this job. I cannot
change my personality, my idea
of football. I am a serial winner.
“The way we played on Saturday
was the only way to lift a trophy
the way we are now. If you want to
change, you must change many
players.”
Conte was frustrated last
summer when players he wanted
to recruit to build on his title
winning team, such as Juventus
defender Alex Sandro, United
striker Romelu Lukaku and
Liverpool recruit Virgil van Dijk,
never materialised – and has never
hidden his annoyance.
The former Juve manager, who
flew out yesterday to attend Italy
legend Andrea Pirlo’s testimonial
match in Milan which takes place
today, said: “I don’t think winning
the FA Cup changes anything
about my future. A win or a loss
cannot change that.
“It’s right for the club to take the
best decision. The win on Saturday
cannot change an assessment of
my work. We could have played
better at Wembley but the
situation is we have to play strong
defensively if we want to win a
trophy.
“The club has the right
experience to understand the
moment now and what it has to
do in the future, to be competitive
and to fight for a place in the
Champions League.”
Meanwhile, a photograph has
been posted on midfielder Willian’s
Instagram Story in which Conte
has been obscured.
The Brazilian, who featured only
as a late substitute at Wembley,
posted a series of photographs.
On one of them, three trophy
emojis had been placed in such a
way to obscure Conte from a
photograph of the whole team
celebrating their success.
Willian started only 20 Premier
League matches in the 2017-18
season, featuring as a substitute
on a further 16 occasions.
His fellow sub Alvaro Morata
also has reason to be displeased
as it looks likely he will be left out

whether to sell. Courtois has the

“Whatever the manager or the club
decides, they will know what they
do,” said the Belgian. “Like I said in
the last weeks or months, we’ll see
after the World Cup whether I am a
Chelsea player for next year.”
When asked whether Chelsea
needed a big summer in the transfer
market to challenge for the title,
Courtois agreed.
“I think so,” he said. “Especially
if you see how City and United are

as Enrique waits in the wings
ANTONIO CONTE is set
to leave Chelsea in the
next 48 hours – with
former Barcelona coach
Luis Enrique lined up to
replace him.
And Conte aimed a parting
shot at the club by saying: “You
never matched my ambition.”
The Italian lifted the FA Cup
on Saturday when his team beat
Manchester United thanks to
By Tony Banks
Eden Hazard’s penalty. But
Conte’s season-long running
battle with the club over transfers
is due to finally come to a head,
with Chelsea set to pay the
£9million he will be owed for the
final year of his contract.
Along with Enrique, Monaco’s
Leonardo Jardim and Napoli’s
Maurizio Sarri are on Chelsea’s
wanted list. Conte has won the
Premier League and the FA Cup

Pellegrini is set for Hammers job
TALKS:
Pellegrini will
meet co-owner
Sullivan today
MANUEL PELLEGRINI is
set to be appointed as
West
Ham’s
new
manager today.
The Chilean, who
flew in for talks
with West Ham
co-owner David
Sullivan
last
night, has agreed
a two-year deal
with an option
for
a
third.
Pellegrini,
who
By Tony Banks
won the Premier League and
League Cup with Manchester
City in 2014, was released
from his contract at Chinese
club Hebei China Fortune on
Saturday, which means the
Hammers will not have to pay
compensation.
Pellegrini, 64, will become
West Ham’s sixth manager in
eight years. The club, who
last week chose not to renew
David Moyes’ contract after
his six-month spell in charge,
had also targeted Rafa
Benitez, but he is set to stay
at Newcastle and will have
talks with owner Mike Ashley
this week about budgets.
Paulo
Fonseca
turned
down West Ham in favour of
signing a new contract at
Shakhtar Donetsk last week,
having met with Sullivan.
Pellegrini had initially been
seen as too expensive, with
demands for an £8.5milliona-year deal, but because of a
desire to return to English
football he has agreed a
compromise with Sullivan.
The co-owner had pledged
to appoint a manager with
“a proven level of success at
the highest level”.
Pellegrini’s representatives
have already met Sullivan
but the manager will have
face-to-face talks today to
finalise the deal.
