Meghan Markle has paid tribute to Princess Diana on the first official day of her overseas royal tour, which she is attending with her husband Prince Harry.

The Duchess of Sussex has been in the headlines everywhere you turn recently – from her marriage to Prince Harry earlier in the year to the announcement of her pregnancy yesterday (October 15).

And, let’s be honest, those aren’t going to stop anytime soon so you may as well get up to date on her recent escapades.

The royal couple arrived in Sydney yesterday for the first day of their overseas tour – which will also see them visiting New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga over 16 days.

Eager fans of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were waiting for them as they arrived, but they may have been too blown away by their presence (or staring at Meghan’s bump) to notice Meghan’s touching tribute to her mother-in-law.

The newly-pregnant royal was wearing a stunning pair of butterfly earrings, which at first glance may just seem like a fashion statement.

However, as the Daily Mail spotted, the exact same earrings were first worn by Princess Diana herself on her 1986 royal tour to Canada.

And this wasn’t the only piece of jewellery that drew attention to Meghan, as she continued to pay tribute to her mother-in-law in the loveliest way.

Meghan paired the earrings with a simple gold bracelet containing blue stones, which may not have caught people’s eye at a first glance.

However, the bracelet is also thought to have belonged to Princess Diana, who was pictured wearing it on several occasions.

This isn’t the first time the couple have paid tribute to Harry’s mother in such a way. When they announced their engagement in November 2017, Prince Harry made sure to pay tribute with the ring.

According to reports, the prince designed the engagement ring and made sure it featured a large diamond from Botswana and two smaller diamonds which were taken from Diana’s ‘personal collection’.

The engagement ring was made by Cleave and Company, Court Jewellers and Medallists to Her Majesty The Queen.

Prince Harry spoke with reporter Mishal Husain for the BBC after the couple’s engagement, alluding to how well Meghan would have got on with his late mother:

Oh they’d be thick as thieves, without question.

I think she would be over the moon, jumping up and down, you know so excited for me, but then, as I said, would have probably been best friends – best friends with Meghan.

The prince also went on to say how he wanted to include Diana’s diamonds in the engagement ring ‘to make sure she’s with us on this crazy journey together’.

And their journey is only getting more exciting! Meghan and Harry announced their pregnancy to the public yesterday (October 15), via a statement by Kensington Palace.

It read:

Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Sussex is expecting a baby in the Spring of 2019.

Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public.

The Queen, Duke of Edinburgh, Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall, and Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted for the couple and were able to congratulate them on Friday at the wedding in person.

Congratulations, Harry and Meghan!

Nose Warmers Now Exist For People Who Are Always Cold

Some people are just perpetually cold, and one part of the body which is quite hard to wrap up is the nose, but our prayers have been answered and our struggles are over, because nose warmers actually exist. 

Autumn is well and truly upon us, and the cold weather is making us all reach for hats, gloves and anything else to help keep our bodies as concealed and warm as possible.

While it’s fairly easy to cover up exposed hands, necks and heads, the nose has always provided some difficulty. Maybe it’s poor circulation or just the fact that it sticks out that extra few centimetres, but for some reason, they just never seem to get warm.

You could squash yourself down into a scarf to prevent the cold air from hitting your nose, or perhaps just risk looking like a robber and wear a full balaclava – or you could invest in the brilliant (and admittedly, quite funny-looking) invention that is the nose warmer.

Just think of it as a tiny hat for your schnoz.

The clever design secures a warm piece of material to your face while leaving your eyes and mouth delightfully unobstructed, meaning you can still enjoy perks of cold weather like comfort foods and hot chocolate, all while having a warm nose.

Created by The Nose Warmer Company, the products come in a range of designs so there’s a nose warmer for every occasion.

You could get one in your favourite animal print, opt for a fluffy faux fur one, or even represent your favourite sports team with a ‘team colours’ knitted nose warmer.

The website explains:

Our business started small, with one nose warmer made specifically to do the job of warming up a nippy nose! Our owner soon realised that she wasn’t the only one with this problem and so ……

THE NOSE WARMER COMPANY was born. [sic]

We love warming up the nippy noses of the nation (and the world). Do you suffer with a cold nose? Well, no longer…. Here is the answer! [sic]

Don’t suffer a cold nose any longer, grab yourself a nose warmer and snuggle up on those cold winter nights.

The protective nose-covers start at just £7.50 and have free delivery in the UK, which is a small price to pay for the knowledge of never having to worry about having a cold nose again.

Sure, you might look a little weird, but when your nose is nice and toasty while everyone else is wandering around looking like Rudolph you’ll be the most envied person around.

Well… you’ll at least get a lot of attention.

The invention could do more than just keeping your nose warm, too. According to the Nose Warmer Company website Dr Hilary Jones recommends wearing the nose warmer to prevent catching colds and germs – it really is the perfect all-around winter garment.

Get your hands on one before the temperature drops any further!

If enough of us buy them, it’ll just be the people without them who look odd for not having a colourful, knitted nose accessory. Shop the wide range of nose warmers here.

Oscar Pistorius ‘Blade Gunner’ Costume Causes Controversy

With Halloween just around the corner, it’s likely you’ll be planning which fancy dress outfit you’re going to wear to both impress and scare your friends – and if you’re not, get planning.

Whether it be a complicated makeup job to transform you into a terrifying clown or, if you’re anything like me and don’t do ‘scary’, you’ll probably be googling the best mermaid or alien transformations.

Whichever route you decide to go down, it’s unlikely to cause as much controversy as an Oscar Pistorius costume which is being sold in one fancy dress shop based in Luton.

Yep, that’s right. The costume encourages people to dress up as the double amputee Paralympian who shot and killed his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp back in 2013.

'Blade Gunner' Halloween CostumeJokers' Masquerade

The costume, which is on sale at Jokers’ Masquerade in Luton for £22.99, includes a athletic-style green and yellow running vest and shorts, which mimics the outfit Pistorius wore at the 2012 Paralympics when he represented South Africa and came second in the 200m race.

Also included in the costume are black and silver boot covers and white knee covers, to give the impression that the person wearing the costume is an amputee. The costume has the words ‘Blade Gunner’ printed on the front, making reference to Pistorius’s nickname ‘Blade Runner’.

To further the controversy, the model is also holding a water pistol which makes reference to the 2013 murder of Pistorius’ girlfriend, South African model Reeva Steenkamp.

In the early hours of the morning on Valentine’s Day, Pistorius shot Steenkamp four times in his home in Pretoria, resulting in her death.

Pistorius admitted to shooting her through his bathroom door but claimed that he mistook her for a possible intruder. He was convicted of ‘culpable homicide’ and sentenced to five years in October 2014.

He served only one year and was released in October 2015 to serve the rest of his sentence under house arrest.

However, Pistorius’s manslaughter conviction was overturned and he was found guilty of murder, resulting in his sentence being lengthened to 13 years and five months in November 2017.

The case has been extremely controversial since day one, so people are understandably very annoyed about the prospect of people wearing this costume.

One person tweeted:

While another said:

Reeva Steenkamp had her life taken from her in horrific circumstances…and so this costume company decides to tackle ‘political correctness’ and ‘pushing boundaries’ with a costume of the man who is serving 15 years for her death. I actually have no words

The costume is categorised under the website’s ‘Bad Taste and Shocking Fancy Dress Costumes’ section, and it does include a warning to those who may take offence.

The disclaimer says:

WARNING! If you are easily offended, our Bad Taste Costumes may not be for you.

Here at Jokers’ Masquerade we decided to be a little rebellious by compiling this collection of wonderfully inappropriate costumes for adults, for those who like to push the boundaries. Our offensive fancy dress costumes are perfect for those with a black sense of humour.

So it looks like the outfit is here to stay, despite people’s clear (and in my opinion, justified) objections.

I get the whole dark humour thing but when it comes to making light of the horrific murder of an innocent young woman, I think I’ll pass and stick to my mermaid costume, ta very much.
