Her Majesty was resplendent as she met Royal Regiment of Canadian Artillery. Monarch chatted with members of Canadian Armed Forces at Windsor Castle. She donned the Canadian Maple Leaf Royal Brooch in tribute to the soldiers. Royal Regiment will serve as Queen’s Guard in honour of their 150th anniversary. By Monica Greep For Mailonline  Published: 19:24 BST, 6 October 2021 | Updated: 19:30 BST, 6 October 2021 The Queen was the picture of elegance today as she stepped out to meet members of the Royal Regiment of Canadian Artillery in her first appearance at Windsor Castle following her return to Balmoral. Her Majesty was resplendent in blue as she chatted with members of the Canadian Armed Forces, who have been invited to serve as the Queen’s Guard in honour of the regiment’s 150th anniversary. She donned the Canadian Maple Leaf Royal Brooch, which was initially gifted from her King George VI to his wife, Queen Elizabeth, for their state visit of Canada in 1939. The monarch, who last week spoke publicly for the first time about her late husband Prince Philip’s death, appeared in good spirits as she spoke with soldiers at Windsor Castle. It’s her first time being pictured at her Berkshire home, which she arrived at on Saturday following an extended stay at her Scottish estate following Prince Philip’s death.

13:35 Ontvangen The Queen is seen for first time since Sheikh phone tap scandal By Dan Sales For Mailonline Published: 12:08 BST, 7 October 2021 | Updated: 12:40 BST, 7 October 2021. The Queen has been seen for the first time today after news broke of her Dubai ruler friend being responsible for illegal UK phone hacking.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum was able to snoop on the parliamentary emails of Tory peer and former royal lawyer Fiona Shackleton. The Queen, who faced pressure to cut ties with him, looked unperturbed by the revelations as she left Windsor Castle by car this morning. Her Majesty seemed relaxed as she raised her arm slightly, flanked by what was thought to be an aide on the back seat of the motor. She was heading to Buckingham Palace to launch the Baton Relay for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games. Yesterday it emerged Sheikh Mohammed also hacked the iPhone of Ms Shackleton’s client Princess Haya, his wife who fled to Britain in fear of her life and those of her staff. The extraordinary revelations should prove a ‘wake-up call’, Labour MP Chris Bryant said last night. He added: ‘The Foreign Office needs to do a proper inquiry into our relationship with Dubai and I would have thought the Foreign Secretary will be summoning in the ambassador for a ‘meeting without coffee’.’ A senior judge concluded that Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the horse race-loving friend of the Royal Family and prime minister of the United Arab Emirates, committed a ‘total abuse of trust and indeed an abuse of power’. He previously orchestrated the armed kidnap of his runaway daughter Princess Shamsa from Cambridgeshire in 2000, persuading Tony Blair’s government to hush it up, the High Court heard. He also allegedly abducted her sister Princess Latifa when she too tried to flee Dubai. Sir Andrew McFarlane’s ruling said yesterday: ‘It is more probable than not that the surveillance of the six phones … was carried out by servants or agents of the father … with [his] express or implied authority.’ But one royal source added: ‘I suspect the Queen’s reaction will be determined by how the Government decides to handle this. It’s a tricky one, as the UAE are a key ally of the UK.’  Haya’s high-profile solicitor Baroness Shackleton, a Tory peer who acted for Prince Charles and Sir Paul McCartney in their divorces, was among those targeted in the astonishing cyber hacking mission. She reported to Black Rod, the monarch’s representative in the House of Lords, that her ‘parliamentary email, my own email, my WhatsApp messages, my pictures and my texts are all visible to somebody else’. Scotland Yard and the National Crime Agency have been informed of the hacking. The Met said it had received ‘multiple allegations of crime including unauthorised access and interception of digital devices and offences contrary to the Computer Misuse Act relating to six complainants’. Detectives launched an investigation and ‘significant inquiries were carried out’ for five months – but the inquiry was shut down in February. Last night the sheikh said: ‘I have always denied the allegations made against me and I continue to do so. These matters concern supposed operations of state security. ‘As a head of government involved in private family proceedings, it was not appropriate for me to provide evidence on such sensitive matters either personally or via my advisers in a foreign court. ‘Neither the Emirate of Dubai nor the UAE are party to these proceedings and they did not participate in the hearing.’ The cyber-hacking mission took place during a critical phase in the sheikh and Haya’s custody case at the High Court in the summer of last year. The case continues.

Vandaag viert mijn kleindochter Lotte Maartje Elizabeth van der Heijden haar veertiende verjaardag. Langs deze weg gaan mijn welgemeende gelukwensen naar haar uit. Lotte is geboren op het moment dat ik in Granada de Stichting Cervantes Benelux vertegenwoordigde op het tweede internationale congres van de Federación Internacional de Asociaciones de Profesores de Español. Vanuit deze achtergrond memoreer ik aansluitend aan mijn ‘Bericht over Prins Harry en mijn verbindende elementen d.d. 26 september vanaf 1996’  mijn verbindende elementen d.d. 27 september vanaf 1997 tot en met 2012: 1997 Mailing 1999 Van Cutsem 2000 Heydens karwei 2002 Wij Heeren van Heyendael 2003 Liesbeths maten 2004 Forever yours 2005 Zuid-Afrika 2006 Bezoek aan Loenen 2007 De opening van het FIAPE-congres in Granada door Prof.Dr Walter Bernecker en ontmoeting met oude bekenden 2008 Bericht over Philipse Business School 2009 Terug uit Cádiz 2010 Aan de vooravond van een nieuwe regeringRetour Vlissingen-Nijmegen 2011 Thom de Graaf vertrekt als Burgemeester van Nijmegen 2012 Als de dag van toen.

09:22 Ontvangen Kate Middleton and Prince William enjoy burger and chips pub lunch with George, Louis and Charlotte Royals were seen tucking into pub grub at undisclosed beer garden in Norfolk. William was seen consoling one of the youngsters whose food was too hot to eat. Kate and William appeared relaxed and happy after spate of public engagements. Punters were shocked to see Prince William and Kate Middleton tucking into a pub lunch in Norfolk at the weekend. The royal pair were joined by Princes George, aged eight, and Louis, three and Princess Charlotte, six, as they all enjoyed burgers and chips at the undisclosed beer garden on Saturday. The family’s black spaniel Lupo was also in attendance – spotted sniffing around the wooden table as the royals tucked into some traditional English pub grub.  William, donning a navy jumper and light blue shirt, was seen consoling one of the youngsters when their food proved too hot to eat.  Meanwhile young George kept it more casual than usual in a turquoise t-shirt, shorts and trainers. The happy couple appeared relaxed as they enjoyed some family time after a busy spate of public engagements. Kate had recently met with Afghan veterans in Brize Norton in Oxfordshire and cadets in Lake Windermere, before playing doubles with US Open champion Emma Raducanu in Roehampton. Meanwhile Prince William had attended emergency services day in London and visited football youth teams. A witness told the Sun: ‘It was amazing to see how down-to-earth the family were. 

‘It would have been easy to miss them – and just assume they were any other family. ‘They were laughing and chatting and clearly enjoying each other’s company.’ The witness added: ‘They were eating outside, I suppose because it was easier for the children. ‘There was no security around, just them chilling like any other family. Wills had a burger and chips. ‘They had their pet dog, a spaniel with them, and they were all laughing.  ‘There was one particularly touching moment where one of the children got upset because their food was too hot. ‘William was so fast to reassure them and sort them out. It was fantastic to see.’ The family day out came as it was revealed Prince William and David Attenborough will present a new BBC programme about the environment. The show will feature pioneers who have been recognised for finding innovative solutions to the most pressing climate issues. In a trailer introducing the documentary, The Earthshot Prize: Repairing Our Planet, The Duke of Cambridge, 39, tells viewers ‘this is a moment for hope, not fear’. The Queen’s grandson, who lives at Kensington Palace in London with Kate and their three children, will speak with winners of The Earthshot Prize, a global competition he launched alongside The Royal Foundation in October 2020, in the five-part series. The series will air from October 3, and each episode will focus on a different environmental issue – protecting and restoring nature, fixing the climate, combating air pollution, reviving the oceans, and tackling waste. 

Dit verhaal brengt mij in gedachten terug naar 19 augustus 1997. Na ons bezoek aan Windsor Castle, Frogmore House, Eton College en Royal Kew Gardens werd ik in het Holiday Inn Hotel in Windsor/Maidenhead door de receptioniste opgewacht met de vraag “Mister Van der Heyden. Where have you been this afternoon?” Mijn antwoord “I’ve been to Eton College. I’ve got some friends up there.” Waarop zij antwoordde met “Yes I know. Prince William. I know him from the Pizzahut in Windsor”.   

10:14 Meghan’s subtle tribute to Diana: Duchess of Sussex carried 3,450 pounds Dior bag named after the late princess in New York – while als wearing her mother-in-law’s Cartier watch By Chloe Morgan For Mailonline Published: 09:04 BST, 27 September 2021 | Updated: 09:09 BST, 27 September 2021 Meghan Markle paid a subtle tribute to her late mother-in-law Princess Diana by carrying a Dior bag named after her in New York – while also wearing her Cartier watch. The Duchess of Sussex, 40, stepped out at the Global Live Citizen event on Saturday wearing a black coat and scarf in 76F weather – but it was her accessories that captured the attention of royal fans. The mother-of-two paid a touching tribute to late Princess Diana by carrying Christian Dior’s Lady D-Lite bag, which retails at £3,450. Originally called ‘Chouchou,’ the Lady Dior bag changed its name in 1996 in honour of Princess Diana after she was seen using it. The boxy bag was gifted to the late royal by the First Lady of France in September 1995, at the opening of the Paul Cézanne retrospective at Paris’s Grand Palais. At this time, the Chouchou wasn’t yet on sale to the public, and only in the possession of the world’s one per cent. And it wasn’t long before Diana starting pairing the black patent bag with many of her chic ensembles – including a white Versace suit that she wore during a trip to Argentina on November 26, 1995. Admitting it ‘suited her well,’ the late royal then went on to commission another in navy blue to match the colour of her eyes.


Aansluitend aan mijn bericht ‘Algemene beschouwingen en mijn verbindende elementen d.d. 22 september vanaf 1995’ heb ik gisteren de algemene politieke beschouwingen gevolgd. Sophie Hermans is een van de politici die nog niet in mijn correspondentie is voorgekomen. Zij is één van de drie secondanten die het afgelopen weekend in Hilversum samen met Rob Jetten en Pieter Heerma heeft deelgenomen aan de kabinetsformatie. Ik heb nu vastgesteld dat zij uit mijn geboortestad afkomstig is en een dochter is van voormalig Minister Loek Hermans van Onderwijs, Cultuur en Wetenschap. Ik zie dit als een positieve ontwikkeling gezien ik haar vader op 31 december 1996 onder kenmerk PJ/OCW981231 volledig op de hoogte heb gesteld van de correspondentie die ik voordien met de belangrijkste bewindspersonen in Nederland heb gevoerd. Ik vind haar eerste optreden als fractievoorzitter van de VVD in de Tweede Kamer veelbelovend. Rob Jetten (D66) had een gloedvol betoog. Ik sluit niet uit dat wij daarbij de nieuwe Minister-President van Nederland aan het werk hebben gezien. Als voorbeeld. In 2012 had ik daar zijn voorganger Alexander Pechtold reeds voor op het oog. Ik heb Rob Jetten op 16 april 2010  ontdekt als een veelbelovend toekomstig politicus op de zolderkamer van het restaurant Valdin tegenover het landgoed Heyendael tijdens mijn eerste deelname aan de ledenvergadering van D66 Nijmegen. Ik beperk mij in deze reactie uitluitend tot het optreden van de tweede, derde en vierde spreker. Hoewel ik het met de eerste spreker eens ben dat een indexering van pensioenvoorzieningen zeker op zijn plaats is. Ik beslis echter niet over de wijze waarop de Nederlandse Regering de 353 miljard euro die haar thans ter beschikking staat aan te wenden. Ik hecht er wel aan dat een substantieel deel van dat bedrag wordt aangewend voor de uitvoering van ethisch verantwoord Nederlands-Spaans arbeidsmarktbeleid zoals ik dat in mijn beleidsplan heb beschreven. In dit verband constateer ik dat Pieter Heerma in zijn betoog de Spaanse filosoof Ortega citeerde. Ik neem aan dat hij daarbij doelde op José Ortega y Gasset. Hij sprak ook over een Nieuwe Horizon. Ik denk hierbij aan de tijd dat ik tijdens een therapie in het Nijmeegse Radboud Ziekenhuis een perspectieftekening heb gemaakt op dezelfde wijze waarop ik zijn vader heb getekend als Don Quichot. Bij de hierop afgebeelde P.O. Panza heb ik niet geduid op Pieter Omtzigt uit Enschede maar op mijn voormalige ‘brother in arms’ Drs Peter Ottenhoff. Ik hoor in deze algemene beschouwingen de crisis verwoord waarin ik in 1993 verzeild ben geraakt vanwege mijn waarschijnlijk té grote kennis van netwerkstructuren. Met name binnen de Spaanstalige wereld. En dan denk ik met name aan landen in Hispano America. Ik heb tijdens die therapie mijn belevingswereld in tekeningen tot uitdrukking kunnen brengen. Het was een periode van bezinning nadat ik ook aan het bedrijfsleven verbonden ben geweest. Tijdens die therapie zat ik overdag in het ziekenhuis en gedurende de nacht werkte ik aan de formulering van mijn uitgangspunten van beleid. Daarbij stond na mijn in 1989 uitgezonden half uur durende Spaanstalige interview met Constantino de Miguel op Radio Nederland Wereldomroep  de strijd tegen de georganiseerde criminaliteit op de eerste plaats. Ik werd daarbij ook gefaciliteerd door op therapeutische basis onderzoekswerkzaamheden te mogen verrichten op het hoofdkantoor van de Centrale Recherche Informatiedienst in Zoetermeer. Pas nu. Negentien jaar later wordt er binnen de overheid aandacht geschonken aan de toenemende jeugdcriminaliteit in Nederland.  In Utrecht blijken er thans 150 jeugdige benden werkzaam te zijn in dienst van die nietsontziende drugsmaffia. En op dat gebied ben ik het volledig met de eerste spreker eens zoals ik dat indertijd ook aan toenmalig Minister van Justitie Winnie Sorgdrager heb gesteld: Beëindiging gedoogbeleid. Dat geldt ook voor Amsterdam. In dit verband verbaast het mij dat er niet is gesproken over de vulkaanuitbarsting op La Palma. Fons de Poel heeft er al eerder op gewezen dat dat kan leiden tot een tsunami die de gehele oostkunst van de Verenigde Staten van Noord Amerika kan vernietigen.

15:20 Ontvangen Harry and Meghan hit the Big Apple: Duke and Duchess of Sussex visit the 9/11 Memorial together after leaving 1WTC meeting with NYC Mayor de Blasio hand-in-hand. Sussexes have kicked off their NYC trip with a trip to One World Observatory on Thursday morning. Royal couple ascended to the 100th to 102nd floor observation deck of the Freedom Tower for meeting. They met with NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio and his family, as well as New York State Governor Kathy Hochul. They subsequently inspected the 9/11 Memorial pools, and have since entered the museum underneath. Harry and Meghan also set to attend Global Citizen Live concert Saturday, which calls for vaccine equity. Their two children Archie and Lilibet are not with them, and remain at home in California. By Jimmy Mccloskey and Rachel Sharp At One World Trade Center For Dailymail.Com Published: 13:21 BST, 23 September 2021 | Updated: 14:17 BST, 23 September 2021 The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have paid a somber visit to the 9/11 Memorial in New York City in their first big joint trip together since quitting the royal family for California. Harry and Meghan visited the memorial pools around 9am EST Thursday, and then entered the 9/11 Museum, which sits underneath. The couple, who donned somber dark outfits, walked hand-in-hand to the memorial pools and museum after a trip to the One World Trade Center’s top floor observatory. They spent several minutes looking at the names of those killed in the attacks, which are inscribed around the edges of both pools. Harry was seen putting a protective arm around his wife as they paid their respects alone, before moving on for a look at the South Tower memorial pool.  They have since gone into the museum which sits underneath the reflecting pools, and offers a comprehensive retelling of the 2001  terror outrage. Etc.  

Harry and Meghan also paid tribute to the Duke’s late mother Diana, who was killed in a car crash in Paris in August 1997 aged 36.  

18:40 Harry and Meghan head to ‘meeting with the US Ambassador to the UN’ after visiting the 9/11 memorial and One World Trade Center The Sussexes are thought to be heading to 50 UN Plaza  in Midtown East at 1pm on Thursday. It’s an apartment tower near the UN Global HQ, home to US Ambassador to the UN Linda Thomas-Greenfield. The trip is almost exactly two years on from Meghan’s last visit in September 2019 when she cheered on close friend and tennis star Serena Williams at the 2019 US Open. The Sussexes kicked off their NYC trip with a trip to One World Observatory Thursday morning. They met with NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio and his family, as well as New York State Governor Kathy Hochul. They then visited the 9/11 Memorial pools and the museum joined by National September 11 Memorial & Museum President Alice Greenwald and Patricia Harris from Bloomberg Philanthropy. Harry and Meghan, who are rumored to be staying at the $1,300-a-night Carlyle Hotel, are set to attend Global Citizen Live concert Saturday, which calls for vaccine equity. Their two children Archie and Lilibet are not with them, and remain at home in California.
