Prince Harry spotted kissing Meghan Markle as engagement rumours mount The stars of the show are even astounded by the eery similarity. Prince Harry actor Richard Goulding told RadioTimes.com: “This Meghan Markle is a very different person from the girl that Harry meets in the story, but Harry’s outburst against the press attention on it is amazingly, exactly timed. “It’s amazing that Harry has felt strongly enough to do that in real life. I don’t know how helpful it was for him, or her, but obviously there is a huge…

MOTHER SUPERIORS AND MOTHER’S DAY EVENTS

— Broadcast with minimal publicity, the 2017 thriller ” Sometimes the Good Kill ” (8 p.m. Saturday, Lifetime) sets a multiple murder whodunit in a Catholic abbey where many of the nuns are young and beautiful. Based purely on a 90-second tease floating around YouTube, I have a feeling this might become catnip for lovers of a certain brand of guilty pleasure. Susie Abromeit (“Chicago Med,” “Jessica Jones”) stars as the fetching Sister Talia, who is charged by the Mother Superior to solve a string of gruesome murders amongst the…

rooz TV COLUMN: King Charles III, The One Show, General Election update image

Have your say Line of Duty (BBC1) confirmed itself as the television event of the year so far with a thrilling finale. Twitter is a contrary critic, bouncing from sycophantic eulogising, to wrathful expletive-bound tirades in less time than it takes to refresh your feed. This was no more evident than during this week’s royal drama, King Charles III (BBC2). Mike Bartlett’s imagining of a perilous and turbulent short reign of a future King Charles was always going to be an obvious target for the vagaries of the Twitter commentariat….

(261) Aylmer of Lyons, Courtown and Kerdiffstown

Aylmer of Lyons etc. The Aylmer family were settled at Lyons (Co. Kildare) by the close of the 14th century, and possibly significantly earlier. Richard Aylmer was a Keeper of the Peace for counties Dublin and Kildare in the early 15th century, and my genealogical account below begins with his grandson, Bartholomew Aylmer (d. 1501). He had two sons, the elder of whom inherited Lyons and the younger of whom, Sir Gerald Aylmer, was the ancestor of the baronets of Balrath (Meath) and the Barons Aylmer. I have not attempted…

3 SHARES Jalal Haddad breaks down the contenders in the TV Movie Emmy race which might change as unconventional titles classify themselves as TV films. Every year that the limited series becomes more relevant, it seems that the once-thriving TV movie inches closer and closer to eventual extinction. Besides HBO and niche channels like Hallmark and Lifetime, networks simply aren’t making TV movies with the same veracity. In fact, the TV Movie Emmy race felt so thin each that HBO easily won the category the past 16 out of 20…

Monarch Profile: King Henri II of France

The French House of Valois in the Sixteenth Century is often seen, rather dismissively, as a dynasty in decline and Henry II, succeeding the ‘larger than life’ King Francis I, is all too often glossed over, particularly in English-language histories, and remembered only for his tragic and unusual demise. However, this is to do an injustice to a monarch who deserves to be remembered as a formidable man and one of the great “might have been” figures in French history. King Henry II was an astute leader, a man who…

Fact of the Day: Duke of York

The Duke of York was a position created for Edmund of Langley who was the fourth son of Edward III of England. Eventually one of his descendants became King Edward IV and he gave his second son Richard the title of Duke of York. The title would disappear and be recreated several times over the centuries for second sons of the monarch. Ironically pretty much all Duke of Yorks since the founding of the Tudor dynasty have become king such as Henry VIII, Charles I, James II, George V, and…

Comments Once, on a holiday flight, I’m ashamed to say I wrapped Jilly Cooper’s novel Wicked! inside the dust cover of Roy Jenkins’s biography of Churchill. I didn’t want fellow passengers to know what I was really reading. On my bookshelves at home, dog-eared but treasured copies of her bonkbusters are hidden behind rows of other more ‘highbrow’ books so that no one can see them. I am a Jilly fan. I can’t get enough of her saucy roll-in-the-hay storylines full of handsome cads and horse sweat and love, lust…
