Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh share 25th wedding anniversary portrait | UK News

The Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh have released a new portrait to mark their 25th wedding anniversary.

The royal couple are dressed down in the relaxed shot taken in the gardens of their Surrey home, Bagshot Park, by photographer Chris Jelf.

Prince Edward, 60, is the youngest of the late Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip’s four children – and the only one who has not been divorced.

He married Sophie Rhys-Jones on 19 June 1999 in St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle – where other royals including Prince Harry, Princess Eugenie and Peter Philips have wed their partners.

They now have two children, 20-year-old Lady Louise Windsor and James, who at 16 is the Earl of Wessex.

Edward and Sophie became the Earl and Countess of Wessex when they married. They were named the Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh last year when the King redistributed key titles.

In March, Sophie described Edward as the “best of fathers, the most loving of husbands” and “still my best friend” in a surprise tribute ahead of his 60th birthday.

“Whatever he is doing he gives 150% of himself and if all else fails, he gives any energy he has left out to our exhausted dogs or laying waste to the garden,” she said.

Edward has also publicly praised his wife and described her as his “rock” in a television interview.

“I’m incredibly lucky that I found Sophie and that she found me,” he added.

Mystery over woman who threw confetti at George Osborne’s wedding | UK News

The motivations of a mystery woman who threw orange confetti over former chancellor George Osborne and his wife Thea Rogers at their wedding remain unknown.

She was initially believed to be a protester from Just Stop Oil – the campaign group known for attention-grabbing stunts involving orange paint or powder.

But the organisation has said it “will not confirm or deny whether the woman is a supporter of our campaign”.

In a statement, the group also shared its criticism that Mr Osborne “carries a heavy responsibility” for the climate crisis.

“As a Conservative politician and prominent news editor, George Osborne carries a heavy responsibility for the inability of successive governments to address the climate crisis,” it said.

“Unless fossil fuel licences are halted immediately, we’re all going to pay a heavy price for the failings of men like Osborne.

“People no longer have faith in politicians. It’s time for those that want to take a stand against the forces prioritising profit over life to come together in civil resistance.”

In a separate Tweet, Just Stop Oil said: “You look good in orange @George_Osborne – congratulations to the newlyweds.”

Wimbledon, the second Ashes Test at Lord’s, the Premiership rugby final at Twickenham and the World Snooker Championship have already been targeted by Just Stop Oil protesters.

On Saturday, the couple looked confused when the smartly-dressed older woman approached them as they left St Mary’s Church in the Somerset town of Bruton with a bag filled with confetti.

Aides stepped towards the woman who then moved away from the couple.

A spokesperson for Mr Osborne said they didn’t believe it was a protest and added that the individual didn’t say anything.

Several MPs have hit out at the alleged stunt, with former home secretary Priti Patel saying: “JSO [Just Stop Oil] are shameful, attention seeking, disrespectful low life [sic].”

The confetti incident comes as Mr Osborne called in police to investigate alleged online harassment after a “poison pen” email was sent to wedding guests, politicians and journalists on Thursday.

Friends say the email is part of a “long-term campaign” of abuse in which an individual has “made up rumours” and engaged in “cyber bullying”.

It is understood the couple believes they know the identity of the person behind the email.

The individual is not thought to be directly connected to Mr Osborne, and their specific motivation is also unclear.

A string of well-known politicians and public figures gathered in Bruton on Saturday afternoon, including former prime minister David Cameron, ex-BBC correspondent Jon Sopel and former health secretary Matt Hancock.

Ms Rogers, 40, was a Treasury adviser to Mr Osborne, 52, when he was chancellor.

He served in David Cameron’s cabinet between 2010 and 2016, when the former prime minister resigned after the Brexit result.

Mr Osborne went on to be the editor of the Evening Standard and now serves as chairman of the British Museum.

“I just really wanted the music to be fun. Even our first dance,” Meghan said.

“Song of 1,000 Dances? A thousand… I always get it wrong.”

Alongside a clip of Meghan singing the words to the song, stills are shown of that dance and their wedding reception – including a photograph of the duchess and Elton John.

The pair has defended the decision to give the streaming giant an intimate look into their private lives – with the show including personal clips and stills from their time as royals.

In the second episode, the Duke of Sussex talks about paparazzi interest in their relationship and social media harassment, and refers to his mother, Diana.

“To see another woman in my life, that I love, go through this feeding frenzy, that’s hard,” he said. “It is basically the hunter versus the prey.”

Dating Meghan “became a combination of car chases, anti-surveillance driving, and disguises, which isn’t a particularly healthy way to start a relationship but we always came at it with as much humour as possible”, he said.

Harry and Meghan: Key takeaways

Were the Royal Family approached for comment?

Sky News understands, however, that neither Buckingham Palace nor Kensington Palace nor any member of the Royal Family were approached for comment on the content of the series.

The PA news agency, quoting a “senior palace source”, reported the same information.

However, a Netflix source insisted the communications offices of both the King and the Prince of Wales were contacted in advance and given the chance to react to Harry and Meghan’s claims.

Kensington Palace confirmed it did receive an email purporting to be from a third-party production company.

Undated handout photo issued by Netflix of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex released for a new documentary called "Harry and Meghan" - the Sussexes' behind the scenes. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's controversial documentary has aired on Netflix. The first three episodes of the six-part Harry & Meghan series began streaming at 8am on Thursday

It added that it attempted to verify its authenticity with Archewell Productions (the couple’s firm) and Netflix, but never received a response.

“In the absence of this verification, we were unable to provide any response. The substance of the email we received also did not address the entire series,” a source said.
