Royal fashion gaffes at wedding
Zara ... (grandchild of THE Queen at the wedding of her brother) not all white
THIS is what fake tan’s for, Zara — writes Fashion Editor Erica Davies.
The groom’s sister, 27, would have looked as elegant as her strapless Eau de Nil frock — but blew it by forgetting to fill in her bikini tan marks.
Bea ... mad hat-ter (Sarah Ferguson daughter)
WHEN butterflies attack it can be ugly, as Princess Beatrice, 19, proves.
The bizarre headpiece was designed by Philip Treacy — also responsible for the dreaded pineapple hat worn by Sarah Jessica Parker last week. Fortunately my cats weren't invited to this wedding ! They love to chase butterflies !
ONE of the Queen’s footmen has been sacked for leaving a pal free to wander the corridors of Buckingham Palace. Flunky Stephen Robertson lost his €19,000-a-year job after admitting he left a male guest alone in his quarters at Her Majesty’s residence.
The footman, in his 20s, signed in his visitor but later left him alone while he went out.
Visitors are supposed to be accompanied at all times. This poor Queen ! persecuted all the time by young man ! The last one could even go into her bedroom ! Can you believe that ? But everybody has his own taste, we had a young man here in Belgium who raped over 80 years old women in hospitals !
Bull jailed for shop rampage
A BULL has been jailed in Mexico after locals claimed he devoured their corn crops and destroyed two wooden shops. The judge of Canalumtic, police commander Felipe Gomez, jailed the bull until its owner, Moises Santiz, pays for the damages.
It is not the first time an animal has been jailed in Mexico. Last year a dog was jailed for biting someone. There must not be a lot of criminals in Mexico, we wouldn't have space for a bull in our prisons.
Billy the Goldfish
WHAT a gill! This clever fish doesn’t mind hitting the net – after being taught to play footie like Viz magazine’s Billy The Fish. Owner Dr Dean Pomerleau also trained goldfish Comet to slalom, play rugby and even limbo by rewarding him with food when he successfully completes a task.
And now the fish trainer, of Los Angeles, US, has released a DVD to teach others how to do it. What a dream for my cat Arthur ! He could watch football (soccer) live here in our living room and not only on TV ! I have to buy a goldfish !!
Couple celebrate 80th anniversary
A couple thought to have been married longer than anyone in the country have celebrated their 80th anniversary. Frank and Anita Milford, from Plymouth, exchanged vows on 26 May, 1928.
Frank is 100 and when Anita also turns 100 in June. Oh my ! another 40 years to go for us !
