Do you Agree Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Move to Canada?

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle

What’s Going On

Before you answer this question, let’s see what is going on about this Royal Drama. So Prince Harry & Meghan Markle are going to start a new life, but where, how & why?

Here’s all the insight regarding the royalty that you should know about and then decide if you agree or disagree about their decision.

Our favorite royal couple has made a huge step in the last couple of weeks. Meghan Markle & Prince Harry are saying bye-bye to their royalty life and are starting a new chapter!

Harry reunited with his wife and their 8-month old son three days ago. They all are planning on living in Canada and are excited about their new journey. 

Royal Couple New Lifestyle

Royal Couple

The couple had stopped receiving money from the state-funded sovereign grant in the U.K, and have repaid the £2.4m debt that it cost to refurbish their Windsor home.

Although the rest of the royalty family didn’t support this step at first (nor did the queen herself), everyone ended up giving a couple their blessings! According to both Meghan and Harry, this lifestyle was not for them, and it was pretty hard for Meghan to adapt to it and learn all the royalty rules.

Now, they will continue living in Canada, while saying bye-bye to their U.K. life.

Your Word Prince Harry & Meghan Markle

What do you think about this decision of the royal couple moving to Canada?

  1. I fully support it! They can do whatever they feel like, especially if Meghan was struggling with fitting in
  2. Harry only wanted to go because of Meghan, which I don’t agree on
  3. They both should have stayed. The royal family along with the Duke of Sussex title is more important than their private lives

Please add your answer in the comment box below.

Harry and Meghan Markle, HRH, are no more prince and princess.

prince harry and Meghan

The Royal couple Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will now be known as Harry, Duke of Sussex and Megan the Duchess of Sussex as they have willingly chosen to back off from their HRH titles and they will be no longer the working members of the ‘Royal Firm.’ Henceforth, Harry will be leaving all his military positions and the couple will now be spending a major part of their lives in North America as per the news source reported.

They have also decided to repay 2.4 million pounds that were spent on the refurbishment of Frogmore Cottage, but as a wish to retain it as their British home, they will be paying an estimated rent of 360,000 Pounds a year commercially. However, Prince Charles has not denied Harry from his share in the private properties of the royal family, just that they will no longer have their share in the public funds and other royal resources related to the State.

On top of all the royal decisions and conclusions, the couple Harry and Meghan have pledged to keep up the values of the Queen, although they will not be performing any official duties of the monarchy.

The Queen wrapped up warm headscarf and dark glasses while driving through the Sandringham estate and announced the news herself in the palace. Above all the tensions and the expected-to-be threatened monarchy, the Queen handled the matter rather well and distinctly and also appreciated Meghan for becoming such one of the family members quickly.

The Queen agreed and admitted on the challenges her grandson Harry and Meghan might be facing and also thanked them both for the work they have done so far for the state in two years. Her address was followed by a wish for a peaceful and happy, independent future life for the couple.

Prince Harry is still in Britain after meeting with the Queen in Sandringham while Meghan remains in Canada for certain purposes.

Concluding all the actions and addresses of the Royal family, however, any security arrangements for the couple has not yet been demonstrated.

According to sources, the security of both the people would still be covered by the taxpayers of Britain. That would go from 1 million pounds to 7 million pounds per year. When the news Agencies right to ask this question, then there was no response from the royal family about this topic. But according to sources, the security will still be given to both the X Royal people.

Even though Queen has given the good wishes to the couple and told that it is a very good decision or independent decision but still there is some confusion which needs to be answered, who will bear the expenses of the security of the Duchess and Duke? And now it has been confirmed that Meghan Markle and Harry’s security will be paid for by Britons – expert explains reason.

Harry, Meghan and

Also, the couple Harry and Meghan will receive 2.3 million pounds per year from Prince Charles. The couple has given up their rights as the HRH titles but still, they will pay the rent for the refurbishment Frogmore Cottage but will get the fund from Prince Harry yearly.

Royal expert Penny Junor has said that it is a very good decision by the Duke and Duchess. The expert says that they have got the blessings of the queen and also have made their decision very firm which means that they have got everything they wanted. She says that it is a very good and loyal decision to leave everything behind including the money to look at starting fresh. She said that it is a very good decision that they are retaining their HRH titles but not using it. The reason is that, may be in the future, there are some circumstances which need them again in the royal family and by this procedure, they will be able to come without any embarrassment. But she says that it is currently ambiguous that they will continue to use the title named Sussex royal on their website Sussexroyal.com.

harry and meghan no more prince and princess

Even though she has praised the decision by the couple but she is still saying that the public is very sad. Because the couple is moving away from Britain and also they have been a very good source of fairy dust for the local people. But according to sources, the royal family and the Sussex are very happy because they have concluded and came to a decision.

There is confusion even between the couple in which place in Canada they will stay. The Duke is believed to be preparing the west coast of Vancouver whereas the duchess preferred Toronto. Megan has many of the links and connections in this place because of her shooting for the suits film in this area. This is why she loves this place and she prefers to stay here according to the sources.

Jennifer Lopez Hustlers Oscars Drama – Who Was Wrong?

Hustlers

Jennifer Lopez should have won an Oscar for her performance, don’t you agree? Well, here’s why some disliked the Hustlers, and why JLO was furious.

We all watched the Hustlers last year, featuring our two favorite divas Cardi B and Jennifer Lopez, right? The movie made millions and was very talked-about among people, critics, and JLO’s and Cardi’s colleagues. However, the Academy voters gave JLO cold shoulders, here’s why this might have happened.

divas Cardi B and Jennifer Lopez

JLO played Ramona, a stripper who is ”hustling” trying to find her way. People loved the movie, and it seemed like JLO was going to get the Oscar for her acting. However, the award went to Laura Dern, and JLO had a lot of comments.

”Hustlers” didn’t pull off the award-season rebrand. Their box-office did hit more than $100 million domestically, but they didn’t get too much traction for the season.

Is this the reason why they’ve completely ignored JLO?

jennifer lopez Hustlers movie

What are your opinions, and did you also see this movie?

  • A) I saw it and I loved it, JLO should have won the Oscar!
  • B) I did see it, but I believe there were some other amazing movies, which also gained more money.
  • C) I didn’t watch it at all, so I can’t judge it.

Supermodel Miranda Kerr owns skin care line, KORA. So, it’s no surprise she prefers a do-it-yourself method to beauty and skincare. She attributes her healthy skin to daily dry skin brushing and homemade skin scrubs. To make her skin scrub she simply mixes coconut oil and sea salt, which she describes as “energizing”. This easy combo is definitely worth a try for gorgeous summer skin. If your skin feels a little saggy or lack-luster, you can quickly rejuvenate it with a natural scrub that will brighten up your whole face.

Steam & Honey

model citizens #3

Actress, model and soon-to-be-mother, Scarlett Johansson has notoriously gorgeous skin. What’s her secret to soft, glowing skin? The star steams her face and follows it up with raw honey mask, which she says leaves her skin soft and free from impurities. What a great idea for a last minute facial! You might have tried dozens of different moisturizers and face washes that promise to give you baby soft skin but to no avail. The truth is that while many facial products are designed to help your skin, the toxins and chemicals in them can be irritating to your skin. Go the natural route by steaming out any bacteria in your pores and then follow it up with a warm honey mask. This will leave you with ultra soft skin that’s  being spared the damage of beauty products full of chemicals.

Stain Fighting Foods

model citizens #4

We know that models eat healthy to help keep their perfect figure, but a lot of healthy foods will also  help you to whiten your teeth as well. According to a Lacombe dentist of the Parkland Mall Dental Centre, apples, celery, spinach, broccoli, lettuce and carrots all help prevent stains from sticking to the surface of teeth. Making these foods a regular staple will keep stains at bay and help keep your smile gorgeous day in and day out. If you drink coffee, soda, or other sugary drinks, your teeth will quickly show signs of yellowing and stains. Why not fight the food stains with more food, especially food that is good for you? You can stay healthy and keep your teeth white at the same time by snacking on these nutritious fruits and veggies. It’s a win-win!

Less is More for Your Mane

model citizens #5

Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen takes a minimalist approach to hair care. She recently told Elle magazine she doesn’t own a brush! She simply washes her hair and applies Victoria’s Secret shine serum to the ends when they need a little extra love. You might have a lot of products that you think will make your hair look amazing, but using too much product is wearing on your hair and scalp over time. Find one product that promotes healthy hair growth and stick to it—don’t lather on five or six products when you can look gorgeous with one. If your hair is dry, try using a serum that will give it moisture throughout the day. If your hair is frizzy, find a anti-frizz spray that will keep the wisps away. Whatever specific needs your hair has, there’s a product out there for it—just don’t go product crazy, or your hair will be weighed down and greasy.

There you have it, perfect summer tips straight from the trendsetters themselves. These tips will ensure you have your most gorgeous summer yet.

5 Football Stars Who Sold or Pawned Their Super bowl Rings

Football Stars and their Superbowl Rings

Super bowl Rings

Some athletes work their entire lives to reach the pinnacle of winning a world championship. Even some of the best individual players in history who haven’t won championships long for the taste of success that comes with being the best in the world. However, as much as it means to some, to others winning a championship is merely another achievement and the accolades that come with it can easily be sold for cold-hard cash. Here are some superstar football players who helped their teams win a Super Bowl, only to turn around and sell their championship ring.

Damien BerryDamien Berry:

In the case of Berry, one can understand why he might’ve sold his Super Bowl ring. After not being a truly influential player on the Ravens Super Bowl win in 2013, Berry was cut before the following season began and needed the money. Not only that, but in 2013 he was on the injured reserve for much of the season and hardly had much of an impact. However, you have to wonder for someone who may not play in the NFL again would value the money over a memento that would last the remainder of his life.

Je’Rod CherryJe’Rod Cherry:

The story for Je’Rod Cherry is much more of a cheery one. Instead of selling it, Cherry auctioned off one of his three Super Bowl rings that he earned as a member of the New England Patriots, and put the proceeds towards charity. The ring fetched nearly $150,000 and he still had two more to keep close to him at night.

Dexter ManleyDexter Manley:

Manley was a member of the Washington Redskins when they won Super Bowl XVII. The rumor is that Manley sold his ring in 1998 to buy cocaine. The irony of this story is that nearly 20-years later, Manley was able to gain possession of his ring back. The person who had it, John O’Quinn, left instructions after he died that Manley could once again have his ring after he was drug free. Once Manley was able to become sober, he was given his ring back.

Ray GuyRay Guy:

Ray Guy was able to win three Super Bowls as a member of the Oakland Raiders. However, he sold all of them for a total of $96,000. Guy was known as one of the most sure-footed punters of all time and was elected to the NFL Hall of Fame, for a guy who didn’t make the type of salary that players make nowadays, the money was the way to go.

Brooks Williams:

Williams won a Super Bowl with the New England Patriots in 2001. However, after having a shortened, and lackluster, career, he ended up pawning the ring off. The ring was shown on a popular reality TV show about pawn stores, which said the ring was on sale for $100,000.

There are plenty of players who have decided to pawn their Super Bowl rings at shops like Deerfield Pawnbrokers for various purposes. It just goes to show that for some it’s a sign of achievement, while others it’s just a commodity to sell.
