Donald Trump Says No Reason To Think Russia Tampered In Election; Putin Dodges Pee-Tape Question

http://s8.uploads.ru/t/JYy1i.jpg
President Donald Trump denigrated the U.S. intelligence community in Helsinki today as he stood next to Russian Ruler Vladimir Putin who all U.S. intelligence sources insist meddled in the 2016 presidential election.

“I don’t seen any reason” why Russia would have meddled in the 2016 presidential election, Trump told a Helsinki hall full of reporters. “I don’t see why they would do it,” Trump added.

Putin, meanwhile, got asked if he had any compromising intel on Trump. “I didn’t know Trump was in town” when he stayed at the Ritz Carlton in Moscow in 2013, during which visit, the infamous dossier suggests, the Kremlin collected compromising material on the future president, (aka pee tape).

Putin suggested to the American reporters in the hall that they “disregard” the issue and “don’t think about it any more.”

Putin’s very loud non-answer to the question to the very direct question suggests he does.

“Our relationship has never been worse than it is now. However that changed about four hours ago,” Trump crowed at the top of the presser.

“I really believe that.”

Then he demonstrated why he thought that, declining to hold the former KGB agent at his side accountable for, well anything. But he blamed Democrats, the media, Obama and the FBI for a lot.

“As president I cannot make decisions on foreign policy in an effort to appease partisan critics, or the media, or Democrats who want to do nothing but resist and obstruct,” Trump said during his gobsmacking presser that shot #TreasonSmmit to the top trending spot on Twitter internationally.

Trump said he and Putin spent a “great deal” of time discussing Russian meddling in the election. Didn’t happen, he said.

“During the meetings, I addressed directly with President Putin the issue of Russian interference in our elections. I felt the message was best delivered in person,” Trump explained.

Putin then took a crack, saying, “President Trump mentioned the issue of the so-called interference of Russia in the American elections, and I had to reiterate things I said several times, including during our personal contacts, that the Russian state has never interfered and is not going to interfere in internal American affairs, including election process.”

Asked if he holds Russia accountable for anything and, if so, what, Trump responded, “I do feel we have both made some mistakes. The probe is a disaster for our country, it has kept us apart, separated. There was no collusion at all everybody knows it.”

A man identified as being with The Nation had been forcibly ejected from the presser before the two leaders entered the room. The reporter was attempting to hold up a sign when security, who were not U.S. Secret Service according to press accounts, grabbed him as he held up what appeared to be a handwritten sign. Previously he had been fingered by the security guards and escorted from the room; a few minutes later he returned, flanked by same guards, to pick up his belongings at the chair in which he was seated for the presser.

Kate Middleton and Prince William Are Reportedly Vacationing in Mustique With Their Kids

After a crazy few months-including a new baby, a royal wedding, a christening, and so much more-Prince William and Kate Middleton are reportedly vacationing in Mustique, according to Hello!.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis were spotted arriving in St. Lucia and then boarding a private flight to the private Caribbean island of Mustique, royal blogger Tea Time with the Cambridges pointed out yesterday. This would be the first trip that the family of five has taken together, and Prince Louis' first trip ever!

    A lovely follower on Instagram messaged me that her friend spotted The Cambridges along with The Middletons on their way to Vacation in St. Lucia!
    - Tea Time With The Cambridges (@TeaCambridges) July 18, 2018

It was also reported that Middleton's parents came along for the trip, but not her younger sister Pippa who is pregnant with her first child.

Mustique is a private island in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, about a hundred miles west of Barbados. The secluded getaway boasts crystal-blue waters, white sandy beaches, and a ton of privacy. The island is a no-fly zone, Hello! reports, and there are only 100 villas for guests to stay in, making it a perfect spot for the royals to relax away from the chaos of crowds and paparazzi.

This isn't the first time the Duke and Duchess have spent time in Mustique. They vacationed there back in 2012, and Kate brought Prince George on his first trip to visit the island in 2014. Middleton's parents frequent Mustique, and go to the island almost every winter to relax

The adorable family of five celebrated Prince Louis' christening on July 9, their first official outing all together. They were all smiles as they posed for photos and honored the youngest member of their family.

£5 coin released to celebrate Prince George's fifth birthday

http://sh.uploads.ru/t/G4Bna.jpg

Prince George is turning five this weekend (22 July), and the milestone is being marked by something extra special: the Royal Mint has released a stunning £5 coin to celebrate his big day.

The uncirculated coin is a new interpretation on an old favourite, the iconic St George and the dragon, and is also inscribed with the year 2018.

Dubbed 'The Progress of the Prince', the coin is presented with fold-out packaging and will set you back £13.

http://sd.uploads.ru/t/yVnxO.jpg
There are also two other coins for those who wish to invest further: an £82.50 silver proof version, and a £500 celebration sovereign in 22 carat gold, which will be struck on George's birthday this Sunday.

Nicola Howell, director of consumer business at the Royal Mint, said: 'The birth of Prince George altered the course of history in the United Kingdom and we are pleased to be marking the fifth birthday of our future king.'
http://s9.uploads.ru/t/h1VCP.jpg
This isn't the first time an official coin has been released in honour of the future king. The Royal Mint also launched coins to mark his christening, as well as his first and second birthdays, while 'lucky' pennies were also handed out to babies born on the same day as him back in 2013.

Prince George was last seen out and about at his younger brother Prince Louis' christening last week (9 July) and was showcasing an adorable grin in the official photographs from the baptism.

We bet his smile will be even wider on Sunday.

Happy early birthday, Prince George!

Kate Middleton And Prince William Are Reportedly On Their First Vacation As A Family Of Five

http://sh.uploads.ru/t/uUygB.jpg

It goes without saying that being a member of the British royal family means your life is pretty great. But even a Duke and Duchess of Cambridge need a break once in a while. After a busy few months, including birthing a potential future monarch, a worldwide-famous wedding, and endless public appearances, Kate Middleton and Prince William are taking some time out for a family vacation. The trip is set to be quite special; it will be their first as a complete family of five.

But where in the world does a royal couple head to unwind away from the media spotlight? According to Hello!, Kate and Wills have chosen the island of Mustique to spend a quite few days with children Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.

http://s3.uploads.ru/t/NvBgt.jpg
The island, in Saint Vincent and the Grenadies, is about a hundred miles west of Barbados. Expect to find picturesque white sand beaches, a crystal clear, blue ocean and absolutely zero paparazzi thanks to its no fly zone status. It’s a pretty exclusive choice of location, too, as just 100 villas are available to reserve.

http://s8.uploads.ru/t/1VpP8.jpg
According to royal blogger Tea Time with the Cambridges, Kate’s parents were also seen arriving to share the trip, so it’s set to be a whole family vacay. It must be a firm favorite for the Duke and Duchess; the couple have previously spent time in Mustique in 2012 and in 2014 when George was very young. With two more young children in the family this time, their latest trip will probably include a whole lot more ice cream, sandcastle building and swimming pool inflatable assault courses than ever before.

Prince Louis, two months old and already taking better vacations than I ever will.

http://s9.uploads.ru/t/yl8Kt.jpg

The secluded island, perfect for a little bit of privacy in paradise, is set to jump straight to the top of every Must-Visit Hot Spot list. The whole royal gang were spotted arriving in St. Lucia earlier this week before boarding a private flight to the Caribbean island of Mustique.

Queen Elizabeth Just Kicked Off Her Summer Vacation! All About Her Scottish Retreat

Let the royal summer begin!

Queen Elizabeth is heading north to her Scottish estate, Balmoral, for her annual break as Buckingham Palace prepares to open for the holidays.

But it’s not all play for the monarch while she’s away in the Scottish Highlands. She does continue to work, reading her diplomatic papers in the famous “red boxes” that are delivered daily. She will also continue to hold audiences and undertake some public engagements.

Since the main Balmoral castle is still open for visitors, the Queen is believed to be staying at one of her favorite residences on the Balmoral estate, the cozy Craigowan Lodge, before moving into the castle once the public opening of the main residence is over.

http://sh.uploads.ru/t/DT9MN.jpg
http://s9.uploads.ru/t/McOyo.jpg
During her summer holiday, she will also entertain many of her immediate family members, and this season will mark Meghan Markle’s first summer there since her wedding to Prince Harry. Harry took Meghan to his grandmother’s Scottish highlands estate last September before their engagement was announced.

In the highlands, the royals like to entertain friends, hold dances, picnic and go on shooting parties – all the while battling the nibbling little flies that stalk the heather-covered mountain sides.

http://s9.uploads.ru/t/QHhGx.jpg
The home had a starring role in the 2006 film The Queen starring Helen Mirren, as most of the royals were there when the tragic news that Princess Diana had died in a car crash in Paris was relayed to them on August 31, 1997

http://s8.uploads.ru/t/7ikwZ.jpg
Prince Philip will likely be joining the Queen for their long summer holiday, which will last until early October. Philip, 97, has been staying at Wood Farm, on their Sandringham estate in Norfolk, England. The royal retired from public life last summer. Just last week, he took a helicopter – paid for out of his own money – for a 190-mile journey south west from Sandringham to Romsey, Hampshire, for the christening of his latest godchild.
http://s3.uploads.ru/t/dFZES.jpg

He arrived last Thursday before the ceremony, which took place at Romsey Abbey on Friday, while the Queen was hosting President Donald Trump at Windsor Castle. The christening was for the child of Thomas and Alexandra Hooper, who is the great-granddaughter of Philip’s uncle, the late Lord Mountbatten.

Buckingham Palace will open to visitors on Saturday with a special exhibit of art chosen by Prince Charles in honor of his upcoming 70th birthday.

Inside Prince Philip's Busy Summer — Including Becoming a Godfather Again at 97

http://s8.uploads.ru/t/AVIlq.jpg
The 97-year-old became a godfather to the child of Thomas and Alexandra Hooper, who is the great-granddaughter of Philip’s uncle, the late Lord Mountbatten. While the Queen was hosting President Donald Trump at Windsor Castle last week, Philip appeared for the baby’s christening at Romsey Abbey in Romsey, Hampshire.

Philip took a helicopter – paid for out of his own money – for the 190-mile journey south west from Sandringham to Romsey.

He and Queen Elizabeth both missed the royal christening of their great-grandson Prince Louis earlier this month. The decision that the couple would not be attending the event was “mutually agreed” between the 92-year-old monarch, Prince William and Kate Middleton “some time ago,” a palace source told PEOPLE.

Prince Philip joined the rest of the royal family in May for his grandson Prince Harry‘s wedding to Meghan Markle. His attendance was in question even in the days before the ceremony as he was recuperating from hip replacement surgery, which took place on April 4. He had been recovering at Windsor Castle — just a short walk away from St. George’s Chapel, where Harry and Meghan tied the knot.

Although Philip sat out royal events such as Trooping the Colour, the official celebration of the Queen’s birthday, and the Royal Ascot, he accompanied the Queen to two polo matches in June. A week after they attended Cartier International Day, the duo enjoyed a day of polo at the Royal Windsor Cup. The monarch wore a peach coat and hat alongside Philip, who sported a suit paired with an olive green tie.

Did a Malevolent Witch Make Duchess Camilla’s Birthday Cake?

Opheli Garcia Lawler,The Cut Thu, Jul 19 8:51 PM GMT+3

http://s7.uploads.ru/t/aLqxm.jpg
I’ve got questions for the person who designed (one of) Duchess Camilla’s 71st birthday cakes during her royal tour of Cornwall this summer. I’m talking about the carrot cake, which is unpleasant to look at but I’m sure tasted great. There are several things that alarm me about it, but I’ll start with the most striking detail: The dried strips of carrot that extend past the top like bony orange fingers.

Beyond the carrot phalanxes, there’s also the message scrawled across in brown icing, which is not so much the baker’s fault as it is the fault of the royal family: The cake reads “Happy Birthday Ma’am,” which is possibly the least affectionate salutation I could imagine. But according to the royal website, that is the proper way to address Duchess Camilla.

Finally, there’s the matter of the nuts and roses smattered around, which completed the overall cursed-forest vibe of the confection. The cake would not make it past the first round of The Great British Baking Show, but I salute whichever enterprising forest witch decided to go wild with the walnuts.

AP sources: Pence, Bolton, Kelly confronted Trump in Oval Office about Russia comments

Facing condemnation from allies and foes alike on Capitol Hill, President Donald Trump was outnumbered even in the Oval Office. Top aides gathered to convince the president to issue a rare walk-back of the comments he'd made raising doubts about U.S. intelligence conclusions of Russian election interference as he stood alongside Vladimir Putin.

Vice President Mike Pence, national security adviser John Bolton and chief of staff John Kelly stood united in the West Wing on Tuesday in their contention that the commander in chief had some cleanup to do. They brought with them words of alarm from Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, as well as from a host of congressional leaders and supporters of the president for whom Trump's public praise of Putin proved to be a bridge too far.

Even for Trump, a leader who has increasingly come to cast off the constraints and guidance of aides, the him-against-the-world position proved untenable. Trump may like doing things his way, eschewing advice and precedent like no president before, but he never likes being alone.

Walking off stage with Putin following their joint press conference in Helsinki, Trump was riding high after his second summit with an adversarial leader in as many months. The highly choreographed affairs had been sought out by the U.S. leader as a way to boost his credibility abroad and his favorability at home, and he believed the latest one had accomplished the task.

But as Air Force One took off into Finland's endless sunlight on Monday night, Trump's mood darkened.

He told confidants in the days that followed that he was pleased with how his summit with Putin went, believing he had taken the measure of the man and opened the door to deals down the road on a number of thorny issues.

But that was not how it was being portrayed back home.

On the long flight back to Washington, the president began dialing around to allies and aides and started to stew about negative media coverage, even from usually friendly Fox News, according to five outside allies and Republicans close to the White House not authorized to speak publicly about private conversations.

The reviews he received were muted — Trump rarely takes kindly to direct confrontation — but it was a taste of what awaited him on his return in Washington, where stalwart allies like Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich were speaking out.

By the time he arrived home, the parade of critical statements had become a stampede, leaving Trump the most isolated he'd been in the White House since last year's controversy over white supremacist protesters in Charlottesville. Some in the president's circle saw parallels in the response to that incident, when the president walked back his August comments critical of "both sides" for protests in the Virginia city, only to later revert to his initial position — that both white supremacists and their detractors shared blame for the violence.

Trump waited 27 hours, sent five tweets and sat for two television interviews after his initial comments in Helsinki before claiming he'd used a confusing "double negative" and meant "would" instead of "wouldn't" in a key sentence at his press conference about who was responsible for election meddling.

"The sentence should have been: I don't see any reason why I wouldn't -- or why it wouldn't be Russia," the president said Tuesday before a meeting with Republican members of Congress.

The next day brought a fresh challenge. Trump appeared to answer "no" to a reporter's question asking whether Russia was still targeting the U.S. Hours later, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders emerged to say Trump had merely tried to put a stop to the questioning by saying "no," although he continued discussing Russia after that.

And Sanders created a fresh headache for the administration when she said the White House was still reviewing a proposal from Putin to allow access by Russian law enforcement officials to Americans whom the Kremlin accuses of unspecified crimes in return for U.S. access to interrogations of Russian agents indicted for their alleged roles in interfering in the 2016 election. The State Department, by contrast, rejected the proposal — which Trump days earlier had called an "incredible offer — as "absurd."

Many in the White House did not immediately see fault in Sanders' comments that the West Wing was merely considering the Kremlin offer, but it provided fresh tinder for the bipartisan firestorm.

As each White House effort to clean up the situation failed to stem the growing bipartisan backlash, Trump's mood worsened, according to confidants. He groused about his staff for not better managing the fallout. He was angry at the two American reporters, including one from The Associated Press, who asked questions at the Helsinki news conference. And he seethed at the lack of support he believed he received from congressional Republicans.

Also a target of the president's ire was Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats , who issued a rare statement rebutting the president's Monday comments. But it was Coats' televised interview Thursday at a security conference in Aspen, Colo., that set off the president anew, as the intelligence director questioned the wisdom of the Putin meeting and said he had hoped Trump wouldn't meet alone with the Russian leader.

It all left White House staffers in a fresh state of resignation about their jobs.

"I saw the screaming headline on cable TV that there is malaise in the West Wing and I look forward to meeting her," quipped presidential adviser Kellyanne Conway. "I don't see that."

White House invites Putin to Washington for fall meeting

http://sg.uploads.ru/t/1TNBm.jpg
Unbowed by criticism over his Helsinki summit, President Donald Trump extended an invitation to Russian President Vladimir Putin to meet in Washington in the fall, the White House said Thursday.

Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said on Twitter that Trump had asked National Security Adviser John Bolton to invite Putin, adding, "Those discussions are already underway." The invitation was announced hours after the president tweeted that he looked forward to "our second meeting" as he defended his performance Monday at the summit in which the two leaders conferred on a range of issues, including terrorism, Israeli security, nuclear proliferation and North Korea.

"There are many answers, some easy and some hard, to these problems ... but they can ALL be solved!" Trump tweeted.

The announcement of the invitation came as the White House sought to clean up days of confounding statements on Russian interference in the 2016 election that sent Trump to the presidency. Trump's public doubting of Russia's responsibility in a joint news conference with Putin on Monday provoked withering criticism from Democrats and Republicans alike and forced the president to make a rare public admission of error.

On Thursday, the White House said Trump "disagrees" with Putin's offer to swap the questioning of 12 Russians accused of 2016 election interference for an interview with the former U.S. ambassador.

The White House retreated from what Trump had called Putin's "incredible offer" during the Helsinki summit, revising its position just before the Senate voted overwhelmingly against the plan. It was Congress' first formal rebuke of Trump's actions from the summit and its aftermath.

Sanders said Putin's proposal was "made in sincerity," but Trump "disagrees with it." She said the U.S. hopes Putin will have the indicted Russians "come to the United States to prove their innocence or guilt."

'When he gets into bunker mode, he kind of goes back to his true believers': Trump faced a PR crisis after the Putin summit this week — and whose advice he took is anyone's guess

http://s5.uploads.ru/t/le9RP.jpg

    President Donald Trump faced a public relations crisis following his summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin this week.
    In watching the week's events transpire, a former senior administration official told Business Insider it was unclear to them whose, if anyone's, advice the president was taking regarding the fallout from the summit.
    "In situations like this when he gets into bunker mode, he kind of goes back to his true believers like [Corey] Lewandowski, David Bossie, and his old friends like Chris Ruddy and Tom Barrack," another former administration official told Business Insider.

It was just after mid-morning on the East Coast on Monday, and President Donald Trump had a public relations crisis on his hands.

He had just completed a press conference alongside Russian President Vladimir Putin that had followed an hours-long private meeting between the two in Helsinki, Finland. And his answers caused widespread alarm and outrage across the Atlantic.

During the press conference, Trump cast doubt on the US intelligence community's assessment that Russia interfered in the 2016 US presidential election. He also attacked his Democratic opponents and the FBI, and said he held both countries accountable for the state of their relations.

"My people came to me — [Director of National Intelligence] Dan Coats came to me, some others — they said they think it's Russia," Trump said of election interference. "I have President Putin. He just said it's not Russia. I will say this: I don't see any reason why it would be."

He cited Putin's "extremely strong and powerful" denials of such interference. And he seemed to endorse a plan Putin proposed that would allow special counsel Robert Mueller's team to work with Russian investigators to question 12 Russians indicted last week in the investigation into Russian election meddling.

Within hours, Democrats and Republicans, pundits, intelligence officials, and others were condemning the remarks. The word "treason" was floating around social media. People were speculating whether Putin had some sort of leverage over Trump that was making him behave in this manner.

A day later, Trump offered up a small correction to his comments.

Trump said he misspoke alongside Putin and actually meant to say the opposite of what he said — that he didn't see any reason why it "wouldn't" be Russia who interfered in the election.

But Trump made some adjustments to the written statement he read aloud, adding that the meddlers "could be other people also."

The fallout continued. In the days that followed, the White House said Putin's pitch to Trump — one he seemed intrigued by — involving turning over American citizens to the Russians for questioning was in fact something the president disagreed with. Meanwhile, the press went back and forth with the White House over the meaning of a "no" Trump said when a reporter asked whether he felt Russians were actively trying to influence US elections.

To cap it all off, the White House announced late in the week that the wheels were in motion on getting Putin to visit Washington, DC.
'When he gets into bunker mode, he kind of goes back to his true believers'

One question that seemed natural following the week was whose advice, if anyone's, was Trump taking in handling this episode.

In watching the week's events transpire, a former senior administration official told Business Insider it was unclear to them whose, if anyone's, advice the president was taking regarding the fallout from the summit.

In recent months, it has been reported that Trump has increasingly been acting alone when faced with such crises, passing on the advice of some of his top staffers. In March, The New York Times reported that Trump "now believes he has settled into the job enough to rely on" his instincts "rather than the people who advise him."

In April, the Associated Press reported that Trump was tuning out the advice of his staff as a result of both personnel changes and his own attitude toward the job. One big moment was the departure of staff secretary Rob Porter, who was accused of spousal abuses by both of his ex-wives. Trump had viewed Porter as "an honest broker" who would "make sure" different opinions were being "faithfully presented to him."

Another former Trump administration official told Business Insider that at the moment, the person within the White House who has the most influence with Trump in regards to advice on how to handle such a crisis is Bill Shine, the former Fox News executive who was recently hired as deputy chief of staff for communications.

As the AP reported in April, Fox News can sometimes be a place where Trump finds opinions he considers to be in his best interest moreso than within his own White House, and Shine's high-profile position at the network lends him additional credibility with the president.

More often, however, Trump goes outside the building when seeking advice, this former staffer said.

"In situations like this when he gets into bunker mode, he kind of goes back to his true believers like [Corey] Lewandowski, David Bossie, and his old friends like Chris Ruddy and Tom Barrack," the person said.

This week, the president did appear to accept some internal advice. In a private conversation with the president, Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo urged him to clarify his remarks from the Putin press conference, NBC News reported. He made his clarification soon after.

"There's a myth that the president never listens to anyone," Ruddy, the CEO of Newsmax and a longtime Trump confidant, told Business Insider. "He actually takes advice from a lot of people. I don't think there's ever one single person that he relies on. Ultimately he's his own advisor."

"He absorbs a lot of information, he's an information junkie, but then he makes his own decision," Ruddy continued. "He built his brand and career over 40 years being his own PR guru. He understands how to create publicity and spin news like no one other. They used to call Reagan the great communicator, but Trump has outpaced him for sure."

Whether or not Trump accepted the advice of others regarding his remarks, Scott Jennings, a Republican strategist who was once a high-ranking official in President George W. Bush's administration, told Business Insider it was clear the president's "heart wasn't in it" regarding his walk-back.

"I think the advice and decision to try to clean up the press conference was correct, and the president was smart to allow it," he said. "But the route to walking back the press conference was never going to run through something as simple as a double negative and an apostrophe. It should have included a stronger recitation of the president's tough record on Russia, and a reaffirmation of his views on American exceptionalism."

The president, and the administration at large, he said, needs to "think in terms of legacy, not news cycles."

Heart doctor for former President George H.W. Bush killed in bicycle drive-by shooting

A cardiologist who treated former President George H.W. Bush was killed Friday morning in a bicycle-to-bicycle drive-by shooting near Texas Medical Center in Houston, authorities said.

Dr. Mark Hausknecht and the shooter were both riding bikes on South Main Street, near Texas Children’s Pavilion for Women, shortly before 9 a.m. local time, Executive Assistant Police Chief Troy Finner said at a news conference.

Hausknecht, 65, was biking north when he passed the shooter going in the other direction, Finner said. The shooter turned, fired two shots at Hausknecht and rode away on his bike, Finner said.

Hausknecht was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead, Finner said.

Finner said investigators didn’t know if the shooting was targeted, random or caused by road rage. He said a few people witnessed the shooting and video may become available.

In an updated description, the suspect is said to be a white or Hispanic male, about 30 years old, wearing a tan baseball cap, gray warmup jacket, khaki shorts and riding a light-colored mountain bike bicycle.

Jim McGrath, spokesman for the 94-year-old former President, issued this statement: “President George HW Bush was deeply saddened by the tragic circumstances surrounding the untimely passing of Dr. Mark Hausknecht, and 41 sends his most sincere condolences to the Hausknecht family, his colleagues at Houston Methodist, and his friends.”

“Mark was a fantastic cardiologist and a good man,” President Bush said in the statement. “I will always be grateful for his exceptional, compassionate care. His family is in our prayers.”

In a statement, Houston Methodist Hospital said:

“I’m very sorry to inform you that Dr. Mark Hausknecht, a cardiologist who was an important member of the Houston Methodist staff and the DeBakey Heart & Vascular Center, was tragically shot and killed this morning while riding his bicycle to work. Mark was a leader in the Houston Cardiovascular Associates and specialized in cardiovascular disease. He received his medical degree from Baylor College of Medicine and completed his residency and fellowship at The John Hopkins Hospital. He is a longtime Houston Methodist-affiliated physician and has been in practice for almost four decades.”

The shooting prompted authorities to urge people inside the Bioscience Research Collaborative Center to shelter in place, CNN affiliate KTRK reported.

President George H.W. Bush's Former Doctor Killed While Cycling

Houston police report the cardiologist was shot by another bicyclist

(HOUSTON) — A cardiologist who once treated former President George H.W. Bush was fatally shot by a fellow bicyclist Friday while riding through a Houston medical complex, and police were trying to determine if the shooting was random or a targeted act.

The shooting happened around 9 a.m. as Dr. Mark Hausknecht was going northbound through the Texas Medical Center, said Houston Police Executive Assistant Chief Troy Finner.

“The suspect was on a bicycle as well. Rode past the doctor, turned and fired two shots. The doctor immediately went down,” Finner said.

Hausknecht, 65, hit at least once, was taken to a nearby hospital, where he died.

Hausknecht was going in to work at Houston Methodist Hospital when he was shot, the hospital’s CEO said in an email to staff.

The area where the shooting took place is part of a 1,345-acre complex of hospitals and medical institutions, including the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, and is busy with traffic and pedestrians during the day.

Authorities late Friday continued searching for the suspect, who was wearing a gray warmup jacket, khaki shorts and a tan baseball cap.

Hausknecht treated Bush in February 2000 for an irregular heartbeat after the ex-president complained about lightheadedness while visiting Florida.

The cardiologist appeared with Bush at a news conference after his treatment.

Bush on Friday offered his condolences to Hausknecht’s family.

“Mark was a fantastic cardiologist and a good man,” Bush said in a statement. “I will always be grateful for his exceptional, compassionate care.”

Hausknecht had been in medical practice for almost 40 years and specialized in cardiovascular disease, said Marc Boom, president and CEO of Houston Methodist Hospital.

Hausknecht was part of the hospital’s medical staff as well as its DeBakey Heart and Vascular Center.

“His patients appreciated his kind bedside manner and the extra time he took to answer their questions and fully explain their condition and treatment,” Boom said in an email to employees on Friday. “Our employees who worked with him said patients were so proud to call him their doctor.”

Ummm, Meghan Markle's Future Sister-in-Law Was Just Arrested for Assault

http://sh.uploads.ru/t/Je83N.jpg

Between Thomas Markle becoming BFFs with the press and Samantha Markle maybe joining the cast of Celebrity Big Brother, Meghan Markle's family is being um...a lot lately.
And now? Now her half-brother Thomas Markle Jr.'s fiancée Darlene Blount has apparently been taken to jail. The Daily Mail reports that Darlene was arrested in Grants Pass, Oregon, on Friday. The charge? That would be assault in the fourth degree.
A deputy at Josephine County Jail told Daily Mail that Darlene was bailed out on Saturday, and-while not much is known about what happened-a source said "Last night there was a domestic violence call at the home of Thomas Markle [Jr] and Darlene Blount. Darlene was arrested on assault charges."
For the most part, Darlene and Thomas are pretty low-key, though Thomas does have a history of talking to the press. In fact, he once described his family as "a cross between Married With Children and Dexter, probably. And the Dukes of Hazard and The Simpsons versus the royal family."
Okay then. As you were!

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Are Moving Into a New Home, Thanks to the Queen

Teen Vogue Araceli Cruz,Teen Vogue

http://sd.uploads.ru/t/zUrGJ.jpg

We're not sure if Prince Harry and Meghan Markle listed a cottage in their wedding registry, but the newlyweds were just given a new home by the Queen herself. The Daily Mail reports that Harry and Meghan — ahem the Duke and Duchess of Sussex — will be moving out of their apartment in Kensington Palace and into Adelaide Cottage, located in Home Park, in Windsor.

The move is kind of a big deal when you consider that the majority of the royals — including Prince William and Kate — all reside in Kensington. Harry's previous home was a 21-room apartment located right next to his brother's place, and it's where he proposed to Meghan. The cottage is, however, in close proximity to the Queen and Prince Philip.

While Kensington Palace hasn't officially announced the relocation news, according to the Daily Mail, Harry and Meghan have been eyeing the cottage and will move in rather soon. Adelaide Cottage is about a 40-minute drive from Kensington, which means the couple will definitely have more privacy now. It's also walking distance from where the couple got married.

Built in 1831, the cottage has been home to many royals and was renovated in 2015. It's reported to have "a coved ceiling with gilded dolphins," a "rope ornament from a 19th Century Royal yacht," and a marble Graeco-Egyptian fireplace. The Duchess of Sussex, a former lifestyle blogger, will surely be putting her own personal touch to the place.

Where is Adelaide Cottage?
http://s9.uploads.ru/t/pSj6T.jpg
The cottage is nestled in Home Park in Windsor.

It is part of the Crown Estate's private 655-acre royal park.

The cottage is also just a few minutes walk from where the couple wed at Windsor Castle on May 19, 2018.

The Duke and Duchess' new residence is also close to the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh's private apartments.

Will Meghan and Harry definitely live there?

Kensington Palace has not confirmed the news, but sources suggest so.

The Mail On Sunday reports that Harry and Meghan have already been for a viewing and have fallen in love with the home.

It offers quick access to London and there are supposedly seven gated entrances and exits to Windsor Castle so the couple could come and go as they pleased without being photographed, according to the Mail On Sunday's source.

It's no surprise that Duchess Kate and Prince William have strived to raise their children as normal as possible. Similar to how Princess Diana treated Wills and Harry to fast food and forced them to wait in line at Disney alongside all the other park goers, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge want their children to have as normal of a childhood both inside and outside of the palace.

This means that for the family of five, hand-me-downs are favored instead of designer duds, while Prince William and Duchess Kate often take turns with carpool duty. Their decision to send George to Thomas's Battersea in London was an unconventional choice for the couple, who forwent the traditional "Eton-style feeder" many royals have attended over the years.

Duchess Kate has reportedly been "adamant" about raising George, Charlotte and Louis her own way by "keeping stuffy ­royal protocol far from their apartment at Kensington Palace." And for the family, that includes keeping one big secret from their eldest child, now 5.

According to reports, George, who is third-in-line to the throne behind Prince Charles and Prince Philip, does not know that he is heir to the throne. And they plan to keep him in the dark for at least for a while to ensure that the youngster grows up without the stresses Prince William reportedly endured during his own childhood.

As reported by Marie Claire, Prince William has been known as the "reluctant king" due to the immense pressures he felt during his childhood and knowing about his future . There's a "time and a place" for Prince George to learn about his future, says Prince William. 

Explained royal biographer Catherine Mayer to E! News in 2015: "With George they are trying to delay that moment of realisation and give him normality before they thrust this on him."

“But it will be, nevertheless, part of his upbringing both in terms of what he sees his parents and grandparents doing and probably quite soon a beginning of an understanding that he is in public life and what that means," she said.

Princess Eugenie’s name will change to THIS after she gets married

http://s8.uploads.ru/t/jZpWB.jpg
Princess Eugenie is getting married on October 12 this year - and with it, she’s getting a new name.

http://s8.uploads.ru/t/xHmjD.jpg

Eugenie’s new name, according to reports from Hello!, will be HRH Princess Eugenie, Mrs Jack Brooksbank.

The mag reports that although Jack could have become an Earl, he’s decided to remain a commoner. So he’ll just be called, er, Jack Brooksbank.

Eugenie will marry Jack, a former manager of Mahiki, at St George’s Chapel in the grounds of Windsor Castle - the same place that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle got married earlier this year.

Like Megz and Harry, Eugenie will have a televised ceremony, and 1,200 of us norms will be invited along to the big day.

Eugenie, who is ninth in line to the throne, and Jack, met during a skiing holiday to Verbier seven years ago, which sounds about right to us.

They got engaged in January, and Eugenie is now busy planning the wedding.

In an interview with BBC, Eugenie revealed that the Queen always knew that she would get married to Jack.

Princess Eugenie’s wedding budget revealed

She might be following in the same wedding footsteps as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle when it comes to her big day, but new reports reveal there’s one very important way Princess Eugenie is going to be different.

While the princess and her fiancé Jack Brooksbank will be saying ‘I do’ at St George’s Chapel, inviting members of the public and having a carriage procession through the streets just like Harry and Meghan, that’s where the similarities stop.

Particularly when it comes to how much money the couple will be spending on the big day.

While Meghan and Harry’s lavish affair was said to cost a whopping $62.1 million, Eugenie’s nuptials are set to be nowhere near as expensive.

The Express reports Eugenie and Jack’s October 12 wedding could cost between $675,000 and $1.35 million, which might be a pretty hefty sum by our standards, but isn’t too over-the-top for royal nuptials.

With a huge chunk of Harry and Meghan’s wedding costs spent on security, Eugenie’s much-lower profile and status as a non-working royal will see her be able to rein in the spending a bit.

“This could mean a much more low-key, more intimate affair, with a smaller guest list and less pageantry,” reports the Express.

Interestingly though, Eugenie and her wine merchant fiancé won’t be digging deep into their own pockets for the big day.

“When it comes to the cost of the dress, flowers, food and decorations, it is believed the Royal Family will fit the bill,” adds the publication.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry kissed on stage — and it shows how different their relationship is from Kate Middleton and Prince William's

http://sh.uploads.ru/t/InAxC.jpg
     Meghan Markle and Prince Harry kissed on stage after Harry's team won his charity polo match .
    The very public display of affection is something we rarely see Kate Middleton and Prince William do.
    Due to royal precedent and William's place in line for the throne, it is believed that the two typically refrain from PDA to maintain an extra professional appearance.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are different from Kate Middleton and Prince William in several ways, but their frequent PDA is probably the most glaringly obvious difference . The royal duo is regularly seen holding hands and linking arms during their public outings, and on Thursday they shared a kiss that made the internet swoon.

Markle attended Harry's polo match in support of his Sentebale charity and was on hand to give out the award to the winning team. When it came time to give the trophy to Harry's team, Markle gave him a celebratory kiss on stage.

Though it may seem like a normal kiss at first, it's quite surprising compared to Middleton and William's public appearances. Due to royal precedent and William's place in line for the throne, it is believed that the two typically refrain from PDA to maintain an extra professional appearance .

Meghan Markle Pulls Off Casual Royal Style in an Elegant Denim Dress -- Shop Her Look!

Entertainment Tonight Amy Lee‍,Entertainment Tonight 6 hours ago

  http://s7.uploads.ru/t/fklqU.jpg

Meghan Markle made a surprise appearance at the Sentebale ISPS Handa Polo Cup at the Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club in Windsor, England, with Prince Harry on a sunny Thursday afternoon -- donning denim for the occasion.

The Duchess of Sussex chose a dark blue chambray midi by Wes Gordon for Carolina Herrera, the designer she wore to the Trooping the Colour ceremony in June.
The denim design was a more casual choice for the royal, but still appeared extremely polished with its tailored silhouette, wide belt that flatteringly cinched her waist and deep pockets, which pretty much made this dress perfect.
The beautiful A-line skirt floated with every step and the modest calf length provided enough coverage while the frock's open V-neckline and cap sleeves kept her cool in the heat.

Meghan Markle, duchess of Rorschach

By Joan Wickersham   July 27, 2018

Her clothes are beautiful. Her clothes are dowdy. She’s spending too much on clothes. Her husband can’t keep his hands off her. Her husband doesn’t always want to hold her hand in public. Her handwriting has changed. She’s developed a phony English accent. No, she hasn’t. She and her sister-in-law are close. No, they’re rivals. She’s ruining her feet with those unfeminist stilettos. She crosses her legs at the ankle: The royal family has squelched her spirit. She crosses her legs at the knee: She’s defying the royal family, the queen is not pleased. The queen feels a special bond with her. Her messy bun is too messy. She’s a breath of fresh air. She married up. She married down. She’s terrified; she can’t make a move or utter a word without permission from the palace; they’re erasing her.

In a summer when the news is urgent, relentless, and horrifying, royal-watching is a welcome diversion. And the show hasn’t been this good in years. What is it about Meghan Markle, the new Duchess of Sussex, that has unleashed such a frenzy of decoding? Why do people project so many different meanings onto her, as if she were a living Rorschach test, begging to be interpreted and analyzed?

Well, for one thing, she is one of us. Or more nearly one of us than anyone who’s ever entered the royal family. She’s American, biracial, self-made, a grown-up. She’s had a career. She’s not like Diana Spencer or Kate Middleton, who were unknown before they emerged as princesses-to-be, appearing as public figures at the same moment that they began to disappear into the mystery of royal life. Meghan was already visible, and we’re hoping she’ll stay that way. We know the sound of her voice — she’s been an actress, she’s written a blog, she’s expressed opinions about feminism and race. We want her to keep talking.

Prince Philip Might Skip Princess Eugenie’s Wedding Because "He Does What He Wants"
Cosmopolitan Mehera Bonner,Cosmopolitan

http://s5.uploads.ru/t/QVWbr.png
In case two seasons of The Crown didn't make it clear, Prince Philip does whatever the hell he wants. And can you blame him? Dude is retired from public life, is 97, and just had hip surgery. He has understandably few effs left to give-and apparently now he's considering skipping his granddaughter Princess Eugenie's wedding this fall.

According to People, Philip is on terrible terms with Eugenie's mom Sarah Ferguson, and their ongoing feud might be a deal breaker when it comes to the next royal wedding.

"He does what he wants," a source tells People. "He made a supreme effort for Harry. I would be very surprised if he did go, because he is so estranged from Fergie. I think he will decide at the 99th hour."

Fergie is estranged from much of the royal family thanks to a series of dramatic royal faux pas and a very public split from Prince Andrew. Meanwhile, Eugenie and her husband-to-be Jack Brooksbank are making it official on October 12 at Windsor Castle’s St. George’s Chapel (the same place Meghan Markle and Prince Harry recently married), and it could potentially be highly awkward if everyone's there except Prince Philip. Right?
