Buckingham Palace broken into for first time in more than 30 years

  • 1982 A 30-year-old man manages to get inside Queen Elizabeth’s chambers, where the queen spends a few minutes talking to the man before finally calling security.
  • 2013 A couple of attempted burglars, apparently unaware of Buckhingham Palace’s famous security, attempt to jump the fence at the palace. One gets inside an area that’s generally open to the public during the day before he’s caught. The Royal Family wasn’t home, but the fact there was an attempted incident at all is creating a major security review. source

Prince Charles • On the issue of climate change and why he doesn’t want his soon-to-be-born grandson to question why he didn’t do more about it.

Kate Middleton’s first solo public speech overshadowed by her dress
Duchess of Cambridge spoke about a new children’s hospice: Her three-minute speech was “faultless — made with a slow but measured delivery.” Although she appeared to be nervous at first, she “delivered her maiden speech slowly and carefully, sticking precisely to her script, without any ad-libs.” The details of her speech made the news but so did what she wore. Perhaps what female speakers wear is a trivial detail for the media to focus on, but Middleton’s dress happens to be borrowed from her mother’s closet.  source
