Prince Harry has revealed he and Meghan felt they had no option but to leave the Royal Family.
He made the comments to supporters of his Sentebale charity at a dinner in London. He said: ‘Before I begin, I must say I can only imagine what you may have heard and perhaps read over the past few weeks. ‘So I want you to hear the truth from me as much as I can share, not as a prince or a duke but as Harry, the same person who many of you have watched grow up over the last 35 years but now with a clearer perspective.’
‘The UK is my home and a place that I love, that will never change. I have grown up feeling supported by so many of you and I watched as you welcomed Meghan with open arms as you saw me find the love and happiness that I had hoped for all my life.
HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) – At least two Honolulu police officers were killed Sunday morning in an apparent shooting near Diamond Head, law enforcement sources say.
The circumstances that led up to the shooting are unclear at this time. The scene is believed to be a home on Hibiscus Drive.
One officer, a female, was taken to the Queen’s Medical Center in extremely critical condition and later died.
Dozens of police officers, including Honolulu police chief Susan Ballard, were seen arriving at the hospital en masse as the patients were transported away from the Diamond Head scene.
It’s simply not possible that Iran even accidentally shot down a Ukrainian airliner that crashed with more than 60 Canadians on board, Tehran’s ambassador for international air travel said Thursday.
Suggestions that a surface-to-air missile — intentionally or not — hit the aircraft shortly after it took off early Wednesday are likely motivated by politics — not hard evidence, Farhad Parvaresh told the National Post.
Parvaresh is Iran’s permanent representative to the Montreal-based International Civil Aviation Organization, a UN agency.
“If you talk to experts, this cannot be right. Totally it is wrong, 100 per cent,” he said of the missile theory. “This is something purely technical. It was a disaster, it was a great tragedy.… What is going around is because of some political issues, the tension between Iran and the U.S.”
