Queen Elizabeth’s favorite travel destination

ADVERTISEMENT


Let’s be honest; Queen Elizabeth II is a legend. Not only is she the longest-reigning monarch in British history, but she’s also one of the most lovable women in popular culture. Yes, ol’ Lizzie has impressed us in real life just as she has in the binge-worthy Netflix drama, The Crown. However, ruling a country and being the head of the Church of England isn’t an easy job, and this lady often likes to get away from it all and travel the world. When she’s not jumping on a jet around the globe, there’s one particular destination she loves to vacation at the most…

Traveling on the job

As the Head of State, Queen Elizabeth II has had to travel a huge amount for her job. She has traveled the whole world as well as her Commonwealth regions, and she used to fly around in her Royal jet to get to these places. However, as age has caught up with her, Lizzie has opted against flying long-haul and instead gives this pleasure to her son and heir to the throne, Prince Charles. That’s not to say that she doesn’t travel at all. Elizabeth still flies every so often, and she even takes trains and boats to some of her favorite destinations. Her favorite place of all time? Malta.

Racking up some numbers

Over the course of her life, the Queen has racked up some huge numbers when it comes to her air miles. Although she has traveled to Canada nearly 30 times over the years, it’s not one of her favorite countries. That pleasure instead goes to Malta, where the Queen lived for many years before her father passed away and a crown was placed on her head. The reasoning behind this decision is rather emotional. Before she became Queen, Elizabeth lived with Prince Philip and their friends while Philip served in the Navy. They lived a simple yet luxurious existence before everything changed for them. Even now, the Queen notes that it’s the place she feels most normal, and the place that she remembers with a fondness in her heart.

The Villa Guardamangia

While Philip and Elizabeth lived in Malta, they set up shop in Villa Guardamangia. They loved this villa and their lives in Malta so much that it was a huge shock when they had to return to England after two years away. In fact, when the Queen made her way to Malta in 2007, she actually asked to visit their old home and revel in the old memories. Unfortunately, the new owners of the property refused the Queen entry. Despite this, the Queen has made her way back to the country on many occasions, and will always have a soft place in her heart for this place.

The Queen has had the chance to go anywhere in the world. She could travel from one end of the earth to the other if she wanted to, but there’s only one destination that truly makes her happy. That’s the place where she once lived a normal life.

Kate Middleton had the best reaction when a kid asked if Queen Elizabeth eats pizza

Kate Middleton had the best reaction when a kid asked if Queen Elizabeth eats pizza

It appears pizza is not on the menu when Kate Middleton and Queen Elizabeth get together. The royal mom of three, who celebrated her 37th birthday last week, was peppered with questions from children during her visit to the King Henry’s Walk Garden in the London borough of Islington on Tuesday, January 15th. As they made pizzas that would be cooked in an outdoor oven and talked about how fun it is to learn outside, one little girl wasn’t afraid to ask the big questions.

“Has the Queen ever had pizza?” 8-year-old Nadirah inquired, but Kate was stumped. “You know, that’s such a good question. I don’t know,” she responded. “I don’t know. Maybe next time I see her, shall I ask?”

Darren McGrady, who previously served as a personal chef to the 92-year-old monarch, told The Telegraph that she sticks to a strict diet and isn’t one to experiment with different flavors. “Sadly, the Queen is not a foodie,” he said. “She eats to live, unlike Prince Philip who loves to eat and would stand and talk food all day.” He added, “No starch is the rule. No potatoes, rice or pasta for dinner. Just usually something like grilled sole with vegetables and salad.”

Queen Elizabeth is also said to hate garlic, a fact that Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall recently revealed. During an appearance on MasterChef Australia, she said garlic is a “no-no”—especially at royal events and state banquets where there’s lots of chatting.

On Monday’s visit, Kate met with volunteers to discuss the benefits of the urban green space. She toured the allotment plots to see the impact that can be achieved in small gardens. The royal also took part in a winter planting workshop, bird box building, and pizza making in the garden’s kitchen area.

George and Charlotte would love to be learning outside the classroom,” Kate said of her two eldest children. “It’s still fun inside, but it’s much better outside,” to the agreement of the youngsters. She also admitted that her children would be jealous to find out that she spent the day making pizzas while they were in school. “He’s learning about space,” Kate said of 5-year-old George.

Young Royals Join Queen at Sandringham for Christmas Day Service

FAMILY SPIRIT: Royals young and old came out in force for the Christmas Day church service at St. Magdalene’s church near Queen Elizabeth’s country estate in Sandringham, England.
This was Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle’s, first Christmas as the wife of Prince Harry.
She arrived wearing a Victoria Beckham navy coat and midi knit dress, showing off her baby bump. She paired it with a feathered hat and a modernist, structured clutch bag, also designed by Beckham.
The Duchess of Cambridge – who walked beside the newly married couple with Prince William – wore a more classic burgundy coat by British designer Catherine Walker, with a matching headband and Jimmy Choo pointed-toe pumps.
Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, the latter with her new husband Jack Brooksbank, were also among the churchgoers.
They greeted members of the public, who also attended, and shared holiday wishes.
The Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Philip didn’t attend. Both are fighting a winter cold.
As per tradition, the royal family had a black tie dinner on Christmas Eve, where they exchanged presents. They will also get together for Christmas lunch at Sandringham, the Queen’s country estate in Norfolk.

On the trail of Mary, Queen of Scots

A major new film about the 16th-century queen will put the castles and battlefields of her tragic final days back in the spotlight. We follow in her blood-soaked footsteps

Patty Vengeance is really into Mary, Queen of Scots: “She’s seen as this feminist icon. For me, though, it’s more that she’s relatable – as a strong woman and a survivor.”

The 29-year-old writer and musician, who fronts the riot grrrl band Fistymuffs, is standing by the edge of the water in Leith, where, according to a plaque set into the quayside, Mary arrived from France in the haar-veiled early morning of 19 August 1561. The widowed teenager – tall, red-haired, an unearthly beauty – was the anointed ruler of Scotland, and she had come home.

Claire Foy has a secret talent that the Queen probably wouldn’t care for

Watch the queen conquer.

claire foy back pay
Netflix

The day we found out Claire Foy wouldn’t be returning for Netflix’s The Crown was a dark day in our offices, however it’s been amazing to watch how she’s really let her hair down since then. Ever since hanging up her tiara and cloak, she’s taken a role that couldn’t further from the Queen if she tried as Lisbeth Salander in The Girl in the Spider’s Web and she’s now showed off a secret skill never before seen in Buckingham Palace. So if you’ve ever wanted to imagine a younger Queen Elizabeth laying down a sick beat and rapping flawlessly…Claire Foy’s got your back.

The Girl in the Spider’s Web star recently visited the set of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where she chatted about her new projects and what life was like post-Netflix. While on the show, Fallon and the show’s resident band ambushed her.

‘I’ve heard some weird rumour on the internet,’ Jimmy Fallon began.

She instantly did what any sensible person would do and advised him, ‘Never trust the internet.’

Regardless, Fallon charged on and told her, ‘I heard that you know all the lyrics to Rapper’s Delight.’

If you’re not entirely sure what Rapper’s Delight is, it’s an iconic Sugarhill Gang song which starts ‘I said a hip hop’. (You know the one.) The moment Jimmy Fallon outed her love of the Sugarhill Gang however, she burst into laughter immediately and put her head in her hands.

Fallon told her, ‘You can always say no.’

However, he slyly looked over at the audience who cheered her on as the band started to play. And all props to her, Claire Foy took the microphone and proceeded to raise the roof.

You’re going to want to see the video, which is absolutely amazing to watch above. She somehow manages to nail the song while retaining a distinct posh Britishness about her, which is both endearing and hilarious at the same time.

TBH, we’re just annoyed Jimmy Fallon cut her off early as we could have easily watched an hour of her doing rap covers. Please, Claire Foy – drop a rap album. We’re begging you.

Wale wasted no time responding to G.O.O.D. Music artist 070 Shake after she decided to get shady on Twitter last week. Far from the first time the “Black Bonnie” rapper has clapped back, we’re not at all surprised to see Wale wants smoke.

In case you missed it, a fan hit Twitter to suggest a collaboration between Wale, Kid CudiWiz Khalifa, and 070 Shake. Instead of keeping her thoughts to herself, 070 Shake responded: “eh not really feeling the Wale part.”

Wale caught wind of the unnecessary comment and responded,  “Lmao love how u went out ur way to say that . Go awf, queen.” See his tweet below.

After Wale called 070 Shake out, the rookie tried to back her way out of big dawg beef…but it was too late. “You just too fire for me bro feel me, love you” Shake wrote. But Wale wasn’t feeling her, telling the young artist he was “cappin’” and once again referring to her as a “queen.”

In other words…don’t let your mouth write a check that your *ss can’t cash, Shake.

Is Queen Latifah’s Longtime Girlfriend Expecting A Baby?

(Photo Credit: PR Photos)

Queen Latifah is reportedly expecting a child with her rumored girlfriend Eboni Nichols.

According to Radar Online, Eboni and Latifah are engaged, and the gossip site posted photos of Eboni flaunting her growing baby bump.

“Friends are saying Latifah and Eboni are finally engaged,” said an insider.

And a source added: “This will be the first child for Latifah.”

Latifah met Nichols, a choreographer and former Los Angeles Lakers cheerleader, on the set of “Dancing with the Stars” in 2009.

They broke up in 2015 (some reports say it was 2016) but rekindled the romance last year. The Queen has never publicly confirmed her sexual preference, but the duo was caught kissing in Porto Cervo, Sardinia, in 2013.

Meanwhile, RadarOnline also claims the 48-year-old hip-hop star has been secretly visiting a cancer treatment center in Beverly Hills for almost a year.

“It’s a serious concern,” said an insider. “She goes every couple of weeks and spends two or three hours inside the infusion unit. She’s been going for at least eight months.”

via RadarOnline:

The Chicago star usually pulls up to the building by herself in a white Range Rover…Occasionally, she’s chauffeured in a Rolls-Royce by an assistant.

After a recent appointment, Latifah was seen clutching a stack of documents in one hand and a revitalizing drink in the other.

On Oct. 2, she was spotted staggering out of the center, which is affiliated with the highly regarded Cedars-Sinai group.

Latifah’s has made no secret of her desire to start a family, telling the 2017 Television Critics Association audience that she “had to get a lot of partying out of my system early in life for about 40 years, you know what I’m saying. I’m good now. I think I’m ready,” she confessed.

Queen Latifah ‘Unable To Accept’ Award For Personal Reasons

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Queen Latifah is “unable to accept” an award named for a pioneering opera singer, citing personal reasons.

The Marian Anderson Award made the announcement on its website. The organization wasn’t more explicit, and Queen Latifah’s spokeswoman did not immediately return an email Friday.

The award is given in Philadelphia to critically acclaimed artists for their humanitarian work. Anderson was the first black singer to perform at the Metropolitan Opera.

Past winners have included Oprah Winfrey, Maya Angelou and Quincy Jones.

Born Dana Owens, Queen Latifah won a Grammy for her 1994 album “Black Reign” and earned an Oscar nomination for her role in 2002’s “Chicago.”

The organization says its Nov. 20 awards gala will be rescheduled, and it “hopes to honor Queen Latifah in the future.”
