Prince Harry was  bouncing the 24-year-old blonde model and would-be actress on his knee.

The pair were said to have ‘kissed like love-struck teenagers in the back of a cinema’.

The other end of the same table was an altogether more sober affair. Harry’s uncle, Prince Andrew, whose 53rd birthday on Tuesday they were celebrating, sat with his ex-wife, Sarah, Duchess of York, and their two daughters, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie.

She might be on the cusp of the retirement age but Grace Jones is not a woman who plans to show any signs of stopping any time soon.

In fact, the statuesque singer would give a woman a third of her age a run for their money in style, elegance, strength – and the fact that she could hula hoop for four minutes without stopping.

It was certainly hard to believe that the singer turned 64 last month as she took to the stage at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee concert in London last night.

She strutted on stage in a black and red leotard style outfit which looked like it was made out of rubber.

She teamed the look with a huge red headpiece that would have put Lady Gaga to shame as she made her way onto the stage which had been erected outside of the front of Buckingham Palace.


Showing off a very impressive pair of toned long legs, Grace, who was born in Jamaica, launched into her smash-hit signature tune from 1985, Slave To The Rhythm.

And she managed to keep the hoop spinning round her hips as she flawlessly and effortlessly sang her song while keep the hoop up at the same time.

It wasn’t long before she was trending on Twitter as she became the talk of the gig, with many in disbelief at her stamina.


One user called @bootpickler said: ‘@Miss_GraceJones at the Jubilee! no change to stunning beauty! amazing look and only person who could hoola hoop in this set :).’

Another added: ‘Good to see Miss Grace Jones at the jubilee concert! How does she keep that hoop going?’

SunshineBrain said: ‘Seeing @Miss_GraceJones made me want to pick up my hula hoop 😀 #LoveIt #JubileeConcert’

And Chrissy Darling wrote: ‘I thought @Miss_GraceJones was phenomenal and by far the best performer do far on the #BBCJubileeConcert!’

Grace received a standing ovation from the crowd which included all the members of the Royal Family, who were seen nodding along to the song.


But she did make a slight error when she wished the monarch a ‘Happy Birthday our Queen’.

June 2 is the Queen’s official birthday -which this year is being celebrated on June 16 – but last night was all about her 60 years on the throne.

Princess Marie-Christine Of Kent Rumored “Toyboy” Tycoon Mikhail Kravchenko Brutally Murdered (Photos)

  • Mikhail Kravchenko caused a royal scandal after being pictured holding hands with the princess
  • The 46-year-old furniture company tycoon’s bullet-ridden body was found in his Mercedes
  • The princess denied an affair with eligible friend Kravchenko, but many believed otherwise
  • Police in Moscow are investigating but say the reason why he was targeted remains a mystery

Princess Michael’s Russian friend once dubbed her ‘toyboy’ was shot and killed near Moscow early today in what appears to be a brutal contract murder.

Mikhail Kravchenko, a 46-year-old furniture company tycoon, caused a royal scandal after he and the princess were photographed holding hands and staring lovingly into each other’s eyes as they wandered round Venice during a four day holiday in April 2006.

His bullet-riddled body was found in his Mercedes car at the elite Peredelkino country house neighbourhood close to the Russian capital.

At the time, the princess denied an affair, though many believed the photographs suggested otherwise.

The pictures, originally in the News of the World, raised significant doubts about the state of her royal marriage to Prince Michael of Kent.

‘The body of a man with a gunshot wounds was found at a Mercedes in the Peredelkino neighbourhood,’ said a police source.

Russian news agency Itar-Tass another other sources reported the victim was millionaire Kravchenko.

The immediate reasons why he was targeted are unknown.

He was driving from his home in his limonene around 2am when he was overtaken and the road blocked, say police.

Gunmen shot him five times in his body before dragging him from his car and shooting him in the head.

Some accounts said there were a total of ten shots.

When she was seen with him in Venice, Kravchenko was regarded as one of Moscow’s most eligible men. He has been single since his wife Svetlana and daughter Maria were killed in a car crash five years earlier.

He was also seen as more modest and unassuming than many wealthy Russian businessmen. He would often be seen without bodyguards, a rarity for the new-rich elite in Moscow.

After the pictures were revealed, the princess claimed in Hello magazine: ‘I hold hands with all my friends. I don’t think that’s being intimate at all. I’m a very tactile person. The true nature of our relationship is that it is a very good friendship.’

Her marriage to Prince Michael, the Queen’s cousin, was ‘very strong’.

The princess later worked as a design consultant to Kravchenko who runs several hundred furniture stores across Russia, including the brand March 8, one of the best known in Russia.

The royal couple were later seen together with Kravchenko at a charity event in Russia.

Later in 2006, Kravchenko became seriously ill with malaria while making a travel film in Kenya with a Russian TV crew.

He was flown home. At the time a spokesman for the princess said: ‘As friends, the Prince and Princess are naturally concerned.’

Prince Michael was in Russia last week without the princess. He flew to St Petersburg to be awarded with a degree by a Russian university for services to British-Russian relations.

The prince was mired in controversy last week after revelations he had accepted £320,000 in secret payments from Russian oligarch Boris Berezovsky, a leading foe of President Vladimir Putin.

The payments via an offshore company from Berezovsky – who is exiled in London – were disclosed in court documents.

Princess Anne’s ex-husband has told friends that he wants to be “happy” before he dies, as he justified leaving his second wife for a younger woman.

Captain Mark Phillips, 63, who is father of the Princess Royal’s two children Zara and Peter, announced that he was leaving Britain to set up home in Florida with 35-year-old Olympic equestrian Lauren Hough.

Capt Phillips and his wife Sandy, 58, who have a 14-year-old daughter, Stephanie, have separated and started divorce proceedings.

The Daily Telegraph reported that he told friends: “I might only be alive for another five or 10 years, so I might as well be happy.”

Two years ago, Capt Phillips said that he planned to give up his position as chef d’équipe of the US team after the London Olympics because of the demands of transatlantic commuting.

However, he is now understood to be in the process of permanently moving to the US from his farm in Cherington, near Tetbury, Gloucestershire. Sources close to Miss Hough said the couple began house-hunting after she sold her Palm Beach home last month.

Capt Phillips’s solicitors CKFT, confirmed the separation in a statement: “Captain and Mrs Mark Phillips are separating and divorce proceedings have commenced. The couple have a daughter, aged 14, and the care and support of her is Capt Phillips’s main concern at this sensitive time.”

Mark Phillips met both Princess Anne and his second wife through horse riding. The Princess Royal rode for Britain in the 1976 Olympics in Montreal, four years after Capt Phillips won his gold medal at the Munich Olympics.

Sandy Phillips, whose maiden name was Pflueger, was part of the US dressage team at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics, while Miss Hough was part of the US team at the 2000 Sydney Olympics.

According to CNN, Britain’s Prince Harry is to travel to the United States to be presented with a prestigious award honoring his work with war veterans and serving members of the armed forces.

The Prince will visit Washington D.C. on May 7 to receive the Atlantic Council’s award for “distinguished humanitarian leadership,” St James’s Palace announced Monday.

As well as attending the prizegiving dinner at the Atlantic Council, Prince Harry is also expected to meet British and American athletes who have taken part in the Warrior Games, a paralympic sports tournament for armed services personnel, in Colorado.

It is not yet clear if he will attend other events while in the country. Prince Harry is said to be “honored” by news of the award, which he plans to accept on behalf of his brother and their foundation.

St James’s Palace says he will use the event to pay tribute to the work of British and American charities which help to rehabilitate wounded servicemen and women, and to reintegrate veterans into civilian life.

The Atlantic Council is a non-partisan U.S.-based think-tank which promotes transatlantic cooperation and international security.



Lady Louise Queen Elizabeth’s Granddaughter Broke Her Arm In A Riding Accident

The Queen’s granddaughter Lady Louise is recovering at home after breaking her arm in a riding accident.
The Earl and Countess of Wessex’s daughter fell from her horse on Thursday morning while she was riding in the grounds of Windsor Castle.


Eight-year-old Louise, who was seen last week accompanying her grandmother to an Easter service, now has her left arm in a cast.
She is being looked after at the family home in Bagshot Park by her mother Sophie, who cancelled a scheduled visit to a cancer hospital to be with her daughter.
Edward went ahead with the engagement, visiting the Christie in Withington, after learning his daughter hadn’t been seriously injured.
A Buckingham Palace representative said on Thursday: “Lady Louise broke her left arm after falling from her pony while riding at Windsor this morning.
“She has been treated by doctors and is now resting at home.
“The Countess of Wessex was supposed to go to Manchester today with the Earl but understandably stayed with her daughter.”
Lady Louise has inherited her grandmother’s love of riding, and has been taught by the monarch and her groomers since she was little.
Though the Queen doesn’t wear a helmet, she insists her grandchildren are properly protected while riding – and it’s understood Louise was wearing a hard hat and back brace when the accident happened.
The little girl, who is ninth in-line to the throne, is a regular visitor at Windsor Castle’s royal mews, where her pony is stabled.
Louise, who has a younger brother – four-year-old James,Viscount Severn – is largely kept out of the spotlight by her parents, but has increasingly been in the public eye since the duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding last year.
She suffers from extropia, a rare eye condition that has left her with a slight squint.
It is thought that she has had surgery to correct it, but may require more.

Princess Beatrice got her running shoes on at the weekend to part in a five-mile race on Sunday.

The young royal was competing alongside 5,000 members of the public who had been chosen to inaugurate the athletics track in the newly renovated Olympic Stadium in Stratford, East London.



“I am thrilled to be able to play my part in such a historic occasion and it is fantastic to see the incredible transformation that the Olympic Park has undergone,” she told crowds as runners took their positions.

“I, like so many others running on the day, know that the experience of being one of the first to cross the Olympic finish line is an extraordinary moment in what promises to be a memorable year for the nation”.

After sounding the klaxon to start the race, the Queen’s granddaughter then joined the throng to complete the task in a respectable 45 minutes 45 seconds – crossing the finish line to the sounds of Chariots of Fire.

The jog won’t have been too taxing for Beatrice, who is used to these kinds of sporting events.

In 2010 she became the first member of the royal family to run the London marathon, raising money for the charity Children in Crisis.
