Prince George & Charlotte send ‘chatty’ videos to the Queen and Charles during lockdown & talk on the phone too

PRINCE George and Princess Charlotte have been sending “chatty” videos to the Queen and Prince Charles during lockdown, according to a source. 

The royals are currently in self-isolation at separate locations, with Her Majesty, 93, at Windsor Castle with Prince Philip, Prince Charles at Balmoral and the Cambridge family in Norfolk.

An insider told Fabulous: “Kate Middleton ensures that Prince George, Princess Charlotte & Prince Louis speak to the Queen, known as ‘GAN GAN’ and Prince Philip as often as possible.

“The older two talk on the telephone or send chatty videos to Windsor.

“Prince Charles is also very much in touch with the Cambridge trio. 

“They do like to chat away to Grandpa Charles and get lots of very helpful tips from him on animals and flowers, and speak to him about lambs, squirrels, highland cattle etc.”

It was announced that Prince Charles, 71, contracted coronavirus last month and suffered mild symptoms before getting the all-clear.

The insider added that “Cambridge handmade ‘get well’ cards were painted and dispatched on learning news of Charles getting the virus illness.”

The Queen currently has a skeleton team of staff at Windsor Castle where she is in isolation with 98-year-old Prince Philip.


The Queen was moved from Buckingham Palace more than two weeks ago after a footman came down with the virus.

Millions tuned into her TV address last night, where she spoke to the pain of being separated from loved ones. 

She said: “Today, once again, many will feel a painful sense of separation from their loved ones. But now, as then, we know, deep down, that it is the right thing to do.”

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have taken their young brood to Anmer Hall in Norfolk, which offers the kids the chance to run and play in the extensive grounds. 

A source told Fabulous: “George, Charlotte and Louis are now relishing their freedom in the spacious gardens of Anmer Hall. 

“Climbing frames, a climbing wall and swings are a big part of the Cambridge outdoors activity scene, and Kate will do pond dipping and note-taking to log what they have spotted. 


“Birdwatching with binoculars is another favourite of the kids.”

While many Brits are confined to planning their one form of outside exercise a day during the coronavirus outbreak, with acres of grounds, Prince George, six, and Princess Charlotte, four, can explore all day long without getting bored.

According to the source, Norland nanny Maria Borrello is keen that the kids get “as much time as possible in the fresh air.”

We shared the four other historic occasions The Queen has made a special address to the nation.

And Prince William is ‘gravely concerned’ at lack of support for NHS workers battling coronavirus as his charities offer help.

How to clean your washing machine and all you need is cotton buds and £1 mould and mildew spray

IT MAY keep your clothes fresh at the press of a button – but it's easy to forget that your washing machine needs cleaning too.

Mums have been sharing their genius hacks for getting the drawers, drum and door seal sparkling.

According to experts, washing machines can harbour salmonella other nasty bacteria if not cleaned often enough.

Researchers at the University of Arizona have found that it can be a breeding ground for germs, which can also include hepatitis A virus, norovirus, rotavirus and E. coli.

"If you wash a load of just underwear, there will be about 100 million E. coli in the wash water, and they can be transmitted to the next load of laundry," said Charles Gerba, a professor of microbiology, to ABC News.

"There's about a tenth of a gram of poop in the average pair of underwear."

Similarly, another tackled grime in the drawer compartment with mould and mildew spray – which can be found for £1 in B&M or Home Bargains – a grout brush and cotton buds for the "hard to reach places".

CONFESSION TIME! 🤢🤢🤢🤢🤢🤢🤢 Okay- so, we got our washer (and dryer) second hand out of one of my mums flats when we moved in (years ago!) they weren’t particularly dirty when we got them- except there was mould in the rubber seal of the washer, because it had sat unused but wet for weeks. I got rid of that, and thought all was fine. Then I found out you can normally take the drawer out and clean in there. I tried and tried with all my might to pull the drawer out- everyone kept saying “just pull, it’ll come out” but it didn’t- so I assumed it couldn’t come out. I was doing cleaning cycles pretty often anyway. Then yesterday, I saw @dazlincleaning do her machine- and her drawer had a catch that needed to be pushed and then the drawer came out easy! Low and behold- ours is the same!

Cancer made me put on FOUR dress sizes – but docs insisted I wasn't ‘fat enough’ for £8k weight loss op I forked out for

A MUM-OF-ONE who inexplicably piled on the pounds due to her cancer diagnosis was told by doctors that she wasn't "fat enough" to receive weight loss surgery.

Bryony Bateman, 31, had always been a healthy ten stone and size 10, but was baffled when she rapidly gained weight and ballooned to a size 18 in 2016.

Tipping the scales at 17st 5lbs, the healthcare assistant started feeling lethargic so she visited her GP who told her she was "fat, lazy and eating junk" and advised her to overhaul her diet and exercise regime.

After three months of watching what she ate, the mum noticed a banana-shaped lump on the side of her neck and medics diagnosed a cancerous tumour pressing on her thyroid.

The lump was stopping her body from controlling her metabolism, and was the reason she had been piling on the pounds.

After an operation to remove the tumour, she then turned her attentions to slimming down – but she claimed the NHS refused to fund weight loss surgery for her.

Bryony's GP referred her to a bariatric surgery team, but since she didn't have diabetes or high blood pressure, she said she was told they couldn't help her because she didn't meet the criteria and wasn't "fat enough".

Instead, the cancer survivor was forced to privately fund a gastric bypass costing £8,295 – and she has dropped 7st 5lbs since the operation in January 2019.

She now weighs a healthy 10st again and can slip into size 10 clothes with ease.

The mum is now is remission, after having radioactive iodine treatment for two weeks after her thyroid removal surgery.

The carer, from Fishponds in Bristol, said: "It was a weird sense of relief finding out the source of my weight gain, but it meant that I had to shift the pounds one way or another.

"Once the lump was removed, I wasn't gaining any more weight, but I still had extra flab to lose.

"The doctors didn't deem me 'fat enough' for help with it, so I had to go through the process alone.

"It was painful enough being in remission for cancer, let alone having to improve other aspects of my health without any support.

"I'm amazed that I shifted the weight, even if it did mean getting a gastric bypass to do so. I felt so abandoned by the doctors, and the mental torment of my weight gain was a real stress in my life.

"Things need to change so patients like me are better supported to help their side effects."

Bryony had always been a size 10, so was worried when she started to gain weight rapidly in 2012, aged 23.

Her GP told her she had a BMI of 34 – putting her in the obese category – and despite the support of her partner Neal, 35, a baker, she couldn't seem to slim down.

A second visit to the same doctor proved "pointless", with Bryony simply encouraged to keep dieting.

But while on holiday to Marbella, Spain, in 2012, she spotted a lump when she tied her hair up to cool down in the heat.

The concerned mum visited a new GP, who sent her straight to hospital, where doctors ordered a scan and a biopsy, and kept her in for observation while they waited on the results.

"I was diagnosed with a papillary thyroid cancerous tumour the size of a large watch face, stretching from my neck to my breastbone and shoulder blade," she said.

It was pressing against her thyroid – the gland which controls metabolism – and was preventing it from properly regulating her weight.

Bryony endured an eight-and-a-half hour operation to remove the thyroid and lymph nodes, and spent a week in hospital.

"I felt like I'd been pushed aside and made to feel like I was making it up," she recalled.

"I knew there was a reason for the rapid weight gain but didn't know what until I found that lump."

Bryony married partner, Neal, in April 2013, and despite warnings her condition would make it hard to conceive due to hormonal imbalances, they went on to have daughter Eva, now five, born in June 2014.

She said: "I had to manage it all in stepping stones. First was getting out of hospital, then I had the wedding to plan. Luckily, that absorbed me."

After being given the all-clear from cancer in 2013, not having a thyroid meant she still was unable to lose her excess weight normally.

"Despite being in remission since 2013, there weren't any resources available to help me out with my size," the mum explained.

"If I had reached a life-threatening size, then help would've been available, but I didn't meet that threshold.

"My GP enrolled me in weight loss clubs and clinics, but just when I'd lose weight, I'd put it back on in the same week.

"The clinic also tried to refer me to local bariatric surgery team, but didn't have a life-limiting condition such as diabetes or high blood pressure so they refused to treat me. I wasn't fat enough for them.

"Eventually, I felt as though I couldn't go on like this. I didn't want to be this size."

Bryony said she felt belittled by her GP after they misdiagnosed her cancer initially.

The mum continued: "I was completely failed by the system the first time round. Then when I did get my diagnosis, doctors picked and chose what aspects of my cancer they were going to help me with.  

"I was treated differently for my weight, after already being alienated since by cancer diagnosis. I came invisible to most and hit rock bottom."

In 2018, five years after she was initially denied weight management treatment, she was able to privately fund a gastric bypass.

Bryony said: "I had the procedure in January 2019 and my life has been different since that day.

"Fast forward to now, I've proved to my medical team that I can and will lose weight if I am given the right tools."

After dropping to a healthy 10st, she now wishes for the NHS to help more people with side effects like weight loss, rather than just targeting the cancer itself.

"I've lost 7st 5lbs since the op, I'm back at a size 10 and my mental wellbeing has improved dramatically," the delighted mum revealed.

"I've got Bryony back again."

NHS England commented: “Thyroid cancer is not recognised as causing weight gain as it does not impact on thyroid function.

“Certain conditions would have to be met before a gastric bypass could be offered as per NICE guidelines.”

Amazon Just Dropped 2 More Episodes of Making the Cut, and This Week Is Full of Twists

Watch out! This post contains spoilers.

In episode three of Making the Cut, the designers are pairing up for collaborations! Each duo must create three looks, melding their two aesthetics together. At first, everyone is excited to work with one another, but they all quickly discover that teamwork isn’t as easy as it seems.

Sabato Russo has a hard time cutting out patterns, so his partner Sanders Bos takes the lead on their looks. Meanwhile, Tim Gunn pushes last week’s winner, Esther Perbandt, and her partner Will Riddle, to take more risks. Gunn is also concerned with the Frankenstein-like looks by Ji Won Choi and Rinat Brodach.

As soon as Gunn heads over to the work tables of Megan Smith and Jonny Cota, he immediately observes that the designs are fully Smith’s point of view. The duo’s collaboration definitely hits a bumpy point as they try to compromise and put more of Cota’s vibe into the look. Then we get a peek at Troy Hul Arnold and Joshua Hupper’s designs, which include questionable color and pattern choices.

Overall, the contestants are struggling to find their footing when it comes to melding their styles together. As time goes on and the pairs talk out their designs, things begin to run more smoothly.

This week, the runway show is held outside by the picturesque River Seine. Once again, judges Naomi Campbell, Nicole Richie, fashion editor Carine Roitfeld, and designer Joseph Altuzarra join Hedi Klum to view the looks.

The Verdict

In the end, Sabato Russo and Sanders Bos win this week’s competition with their elegant designs and innovative styling. Troy Hul Arnold and Joshua Hupper are called to the front to discuss their three looks that fell flat. Shockingly enough, Hupper taps out of the competition in hopes that the judges will save Arnold. The episode ends on a cliffhanger, leaving us wondering if Arnold will continue or not.

Meghan Markle’s best friend Misha Nonoo reveals heartbreak at becoming first-time mum during the coronavirus pandemic

MEGHAN Markle's best friend Misha Nonoo has revealed her heartbreak after becoming a first-time mum during the coronavirus pandemic. 

In an emotional video, the New York-based fashion designer opened up about the challenges she's facing after giving birth to her son during the global health crisis and admitted it "has been a lot to say the least".

⚠️ Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest news & updates

In the video posted to her Instagram stories, the new mum, 35,  spoke of her son's birth before admitting that nothing could prepare her for the role of motherhood.

She said: "Last time you heard from me, I was very pregnant, and I am excited to share that I am now the lucky mother to an adorable, healthy little boy.

"I thought that I had read every book and I was fully prepared for what it was going to look like to be a mum and to handle a newborn, but it turns out that I don't think you're ever fully prepared for that.

"But handling that on top of the coronavirus has been a lot to say the least," she added.

Misha, who is married to oil heir Mikey Hess, 33, also expressed her gratitude and relief that her friends and family are all safe and healthy, and said her heart goes out to those who are on the frontlines, struggling with their health, or fearing for their loved ones.

Speaking to her 127k followers, the new mum went on to share the things she's been doing to maintain a healthy state while practising social distancing with a new baby.

Admitting that social distancing can feel extremely isolating, Misha said: "I think it's really important to maintain a routine.

"We've just got the baby on a schedule, very early, but never too early to be on a schedule I've realised."

She shared some tips that have helped her cope and said that meditation, getting some sunshine and going for a walk have all helped her while in isolation.

She also said that having FaceTime moments with friends and family have been really helpful.

Misha first announced the birth of her son Leo in an Instagram post at the end of March.

She posed next to her husband Mikey while holding their new addition, revealing they had chosen to call him Leo.

According to the Daily Mail, Misha said: “Our lives have been forever changed.

"We love [him] more than we ever thought possible and cannot wait to share every adventure with [him].”

Misha is one of Meghan's closest friends and attended both the Royal Wedding and her lavish New York baby shower in February last year.

Both Prince Harry and Meghan attended Misha and Mikey’s lavish Italian wedding in Rome last September.

Guest of honour Meghan was the only invitee to be asked to do a reading at the ceremony, opting to read The Vow by Roger McGough.

In their first joint interview on November 27, 2017 Meghan and Harry revealed they were set up by a female mutual friend.

Although they didn’t name names, Misha seems to be the likely suspect.

She and Meghan are pals, and the Suits actress even wore Misha Nonoo’s Easy 8 Husband Shirt, which costs £139, during her first public appearance with Harry – at the Invictus Games.

Misha also worked with Meghan on her SmartWorks collection last year.

In other Royal news, Meghan Markle and Harry make exit official with out-of-office email as chief of staff reveals they aim to ‘change lives’.

Plus, Prince Harry watched Meghan Markle record voiceover for new Disney movie and helped with her pronunciation.

Meanwhile, these are the Queen’s favourite TV shows she could be binge watching in isolation at Windsor Castle.

Miley Cyrus Shaves Cody Simpson’s Head In Extreme Quarantine Hair Makeover — Watch

Cody Simpson can’t go to the barber during quarantine — but he has Miley Cyrus to get the job done! She shaved off all his hair to give him a buzzcut, and it was captured on video.

Miley Cyrus helped give Cody Simpson an extreme makeover during their coronavirus quarantine! Cody took to Instagram to share a video of the process of his head being shaved, and at the end, revealed his new buzzcut. Miley took control of the haircut, using an electric razor to shave all of her man’s locks off. The process took quite awhile, and a male friend also jumped in to help with some of the styling. “Buzzin,” Cody captioned the video. “Clean cuts for the clean ocean, I say.”

Cody and Miley have been quarantined together for several weeks now, and they definitely seem to still be enjoying each other’s company. On April 1, they celebrated six months together, and Cody wrote the sweetest message to the singer on his Instagram page. This pair’s relationship got very serious very quickly, so it’s hard to believe that they’ve only been dating for half of a year! The romance began shortly after Miley ended things with Kaitlynn Carter, who was her girlfriend for six weeks after she split from Liam Hemsworth.

After just one month of dating, Cody attended Miley’s brother’s wedding with her entire family, and proved he fit right in with the Cyrus clan. The couple also spent the holidays together, which revealed that their relationship was much more than just a rebound or a fling.

Buzzin. Clean cuts for clean oceans I say! 🌊🏴‍☠️

A post shared by Cody Simpson (@codysimpson) on

During the coronavirus pandemic, Miley has been bringing light to her followers with epic Instagram Live sessions every day. She’s always joined by other stars during the Live chats. So far, her guests have included Demi Lovato, Hilary Duff and more. On April 3, Selena Gomez will appear.

Converse teams up with Comme des Garçons for vibrant new collection

If online shopping has been helping you through lockdown, there’s a brand new footwear collaboration which should be on your radar.

Converse has teamed up with Japanese fashion house Comme des Garçons for a new eye-catching collection.

The last time the two brands joined forces, they focussed on black and white trainers, but the new offering sees things get a lot more colourful.

The 2020 PLAY range features the classic Converse Chuck 70 in three vibrant colours – an acid lime green, a pastel blue and a strawberry pink.


Of course, each shoe is adorned with the iconic Comme des Garçons heart – designed by Filip Pagowski – along with the classic ‘All-Star’ patch.

Available in both the high-top and low-top Converse versions, each striking pair is priced at £130.

As with all Chuck Taylor Converse, the sizes are unisex – going up from a size 3 to a 12. 

With most shops being closed due to the coronavirus outbreak, these are not available to buy in store at the moment, but they on sale now at converse.com.

The launch of the flamboyant shoe range was met with excitement on Twitter.

One user commented: ‘I need them Comme des Garçons converse yo, the blue ones so cute.’

Mum washes her kids’ playmat for the first time in 25 YEARS and shows off the filthy results

AS people look for ways to keep busy in the coronavirus lockdown it seems mums are taking the opportunity to deep clean their homes.

After having the road-themed mat lying around for 25 years, she finally tackled the filthy rug after being stuck inside for nearly a week. 

She popped the mat in the tub filled with water and let it soak, but was horrified with the result. 

The bathwater turned a murky shade of brown, as the decades of ‘love and play’ were finally washed away. 

The mum shared stomach-churning snaps of the mat to Facebook group Mums Who Clean, where it’s racked up dozens of likes. 

She said: “How’s this isolation thing going?

“Day 6 and my house has never seen such love.

“Who knows might even scrub the walls and paint.

“Enjoy this soak photo. Washing out 25 years of love and play.”

After realising how filthy the mat was, she repeated the process and soaked it in the bath two more times.

The water got cleaner with each round of washing, and by the end the rug looked almost new with the colours brighter and sharper.

Numerous mums commented on the post, giving her tips on how to keep it spotless.

One said: “I have thrown these in the washing machine.”

While another parent added: “Fold it or roll it so the rubber backing doesn’t stick together!”

Meanwhile this mum transformed her tiny loft cupboard into an amazing chill-out zone for her toddler.
