  • Why Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank deserve a big royal wedding – opinion

    Much has been said about whether Princess Eugenie and her fiancé Jack Brooksbank should stage such a big, grand wedding in Windsor like Eugenie's cousin Prince Harry did back in May.

  • Why Prince William and Prince Harry's children will have different surnames

William and Kate's little ones – Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis – all have the last name 'Cambridge', taking after their dad's title, the Duke of Cambridge. By the same model, it can be assumed that any children Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have will use the surname 'Sussex', after their father's official title, the Duke of Sussex. William and Harry grew up with the surname 'Wales', using it at school, at university and during their time in the

  • Love Island is making us all spend longer doing our makeup

    One of the best things about Love Island – as well as all the dramas, romance and Jack-and-Dani cuteness – has to be the amazing hair and makeup looks the girls in the villa sport almost every day. And it seems watching Alexandra contouring and Dani blowdrying her eyelashes is inspiring more of us to put more effort into glamming up, as a survey has found that over 50 per cent of women are spending up to an hour longer on their makeup since the reality show returned to our screens.
