How Prince William snubbed the Queen with his proposal to Kate



Last month marked the nine year anniversary of Prince William’s proposal to his now wife, the Duchess of Cambridge.

After meeting at St Andrew’s University back in 2001, they dated on and off for around seven years before William finally popped the question in 2010.

The proposal was a romantic affair, with the future King getting down on one knee in a secluded cabin at the foot of Mount Kenya.

Describing the idyllic moment, royal pro Katie Nicholl wrote in Vanity Fair, “Back at the cabin, on the veranda, William made Kate the happiest girl in the world by getting down on one knee and proposing.

“With the magnificent lake glistening nearby and not another soul to witness the magical moment.

“Kate likely felt that every year she had waited was worth it all for this.

“William had already arranged for a bottle of champagne to be put on ice at the cabin.”

What a gentleman!

Despite his seemingly perfect proposal, Prince William in fact snubbed his grand mother, Her Majest the Queen, by not telling her prior to the big moment.

In actuality, it is reported that the first people to know were the Ian and Jane Craig, the parents of one of William’s former beaus.

Kate and Wills are said to have stayed at the couple’s house in Lewa Downs before heading to the cabin.

Royal correspondent Katie continued, “The Craigs had been the first to hear

about the the engagement when William and Kate returned to Lewa Downs.

“But William swore them to secrecy.”

Kym Marsh reveals she was rushed to hospital with ‘scary’ condition




Kym Marsh has revealed that she was rushed to hospital.

The Coronation Street actress has revealed that she was rushed to hospital after being injured by her little Chihuahua dog Rico.

Recalling the “nightmare” encounter in her column with OK! Magazine, the actress revealed that her dog had accidentally pawed her eye earlier this week, resulting her having to be rushed to the hospital.

“As many of you know, I’ve got a little chihuahua puppy named Rico,” wrote Kym in her magazine column. “He’s very playful and likes to stroke your face with his paws. But he accidentally pawed my eye.”

Kym then explained that, while she didn’t initially feel any pain from the scratch, the following morning she woke up to find that the left side of her eye had turned completely red.

After consulting with an optometrist who prescribed antibiotics for the “small lump” on her eye, the mum-of-three ended up having to head to the hospital after the injury didn’t get any better.

“After being sat in the waiting room for hours and hours, I was the last patient to be seen!” revealed Kym.

“The staff were fantastic,” she continued. “They diagnosed me with a conjunctival cyst and gave me steroid drops, but warned me the cyst may never go away, which is scary.”

“You take your eyes for granted so it’s really nerve-wracking when something like this happens,” added Kym. “I’ve just got my fingers crossed that the drops will work.”

Earlier this year, the singer opened up another health condition that she suffers from.

Speaking to OK! Magazine, the star said, “I’ve had pain in my pelvis for a while now. I recently went for an MRI scan and I’ve been told I have a bone spur on the tip of my coccyx.

“It’s basically an overgrowth of bone, which is pushing into muscles and tendons and causing me discomfort,” she explained, adding that she would have a procedure done to fix it.

Chelsea became the first team through to the Women’s Continental League Cup quarter-finals after beating Tottenham 5-1 at Kingsmeadow.

Beth England scored two of Chelsea’s five second-half goals to ensure Chelsea progressed and extended their unbeaten run in all competitions to 10 games this season.

Elsewhere, there were also wins for fellow WSL sides Brighton and West Ham.

The Hammers’ 3-1 win over Lewes moved them up to second in Group D behind Chelsea.

In the only all-WSL fixture of the night, Drew Spence’s early second-half goal set Chelsea up for a convincing win.

The London derby defeat was Spurs’ second in four days, having gone down 2-0 to Arsenal in front of a Women’s Super League record crowd of 38,262 at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday.

In the all-Championship fixtures, Charlie Estcourt scored a late winner for Charlton Athletic against London City Lionesses, while the second tier’s bottom side Coventry United held division leaders Aston Villa in a 2-2 draw before going on to earn an extra point with a penalty shootout win.

Group B

  • Charlton Athletic 1-0 London City Lionesses
  • London Bees 0-5 Brighton
