Buckingham Palace stepped up its denial that Prince Andrew had sex with an underage girl introduced to him by a disgraced U.S. financier, and named the alleged victim whose anonymity was preserved in court documents filed last week.
According to Sky News, Duchess of Cornwall Camilla Parker Bowles has been made a a Dame Grand Cross – the highest female rank in the Royal Victorian Order.
The announcement comes on the day of the seventh wedding anniversary of Camilla and the Prince of Wales.
The pair married on April 9, 2005 in a civil ceremony at the Guildhall in Windsor after spending a number of years as a couple.
Awards under the Royal Victorian Order are in the Queen’s personal gift and are given to people who have served her or the monarchy in a special way. They are bestowed independently of 10 Downing Street.
The Order was founded in April 1896 by Queen Victoria as a way of rewarding personal service to her.
It is likely the award recognises 64-year-old Camilla’s hard work as a member of the Royal Family.
In the past seven years she has carried out hundreds of engagements and taken on a wide range of patronages.
She has also travelled extensively overseas with Prince Charles on official visits.
A Buckingham Palace spokeswoman said the Duchess will be invested with the insignia of her rank at a later date.
According to AFP, Prince Harry 27, landed in Belize on Friday on the first stop of a tour of the Caribbean and Central America to mark his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee, a palace official said.
Harry landed at Philip S.W. Goldson International Airport near Belize City at around 4:30 pm (2230 GMT), a spokeswoman for the prince’s Clarence House residence told AFP.
Making his first solo tour, the third in line to the British throne will also visit the Bahamas and Jamaica on the seven-day trip before travelling to Brazil on March 9 on behalf of the British government.
“The Prince is hugely looking forward to representing the Queen and he will bring his own brand of enthusiasm and energy to every event,” said Harry’s private secretary Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton.
He added that the tour of the three countries, which all have the queen as head of state, reflected “Harry’s wish to pay personal tribute to his grandmother the queen, but also to spend time wherever possible with young people in all three countries”.
The prince’s tour is one of several being made by British royals in 2012 as part of celebrations marking sixty years of Elizabeth II’s reign..
In Belize, Harry will meet the governor-general and attend a street party, while in Jamaica he hopes to race against the world’s fastest man Usain Bolt when he visits the sprinter’s training track in Kingston.
He will also meet Jamaican Prime Minister Portia Simpson Minister, who wants the Caribbean nation to drop the queen as head of state.
Prince Harry Of Wales could be returning to Afghanistan according to Yahoo News. The prince was in Afghanistan once before and his grandmother Queen Elizabeth ll order his release. According to Yahoo News/ AFP it’s possible the Prince could be returning to frontline duty as an attack helicopter pilot.
Prince Harry is now a Captain. Men of the Royal family are known to join the military. Prince Harry served a very short time in Afghanistan back in 2007. He was quickly removed when the media broke the news, it was felt his safety was in jeopardy. We will have to wait and see if and when this news is going to be confirmed.
Queen Elizabeth has given him permission for her grandson to return to Afghanistan. Harry is 26 and third in line to the throne. When will this nightmare end? It’s time for all troops to return home and not in a body bag. Return Our Troops! End All Wars.

Topic: Prince William – Kate Middleton
Today Prince William and Princess Kate Middleton became A Royal Couple, If the couple have children, they will become HEIR To The Throne before Prince Harry. If something should happen to Prince William and there are no children, the throne will go to Prince Harry… Queen Elizabeth’s husband Prince Philip is not in line because, he is married to The Queen. The throne was given to Queen Elizabeth’s late Sister Princess Margaret however, she did not want that pressure so, it was hand down to Queen Elizabeth.
Order Of The Throne
1. Queen Elizabeth
2. Prince Charles
3.Prince William ( child 1, child 2, etc)
4. Prince Harry will then be 4th if Prince William does not have children so, If Prince William have children, they are next in line BEFORE Prince Harry. Then Prince Harry’s Children (child 1, Child 2, etc)
Apparently a company made a huge mistake by putting a photo of Prince Harry souvenir mugs with Kate Middleton, we all know Prince William is the one marrying Kate Middleton April 29, Unless Prince Harry is like Singer Jermaine Jackson, You know all about that Right? Right! If not just scroll down my page and read ALL about Mr. Jermaine Jackson…..
