The royal family said their last goodbyes on Saturday to Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh and beloved husband of Queen Elizabeth for over 70 years.
Philip’s funeral was held at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, with only 30 members in attendance. The duke himself was intimately involved in planning the funeral during his lifetime, helping design the modified Land Rover that carried his coffin and choosing the music that was played.
The procession and funeral were shown live on public television and reflected Philip’s no-fuss attitude and love of the military. Photos of the 50-minute service captured the emotions of the masked royal family members and close friends in attendance, and the harsh reality of losing a loved one during the pandemic.
Some of the most moving photographs from the day included the reunion of Princes William and Harryafter a year apart, Prince Charles with tears streaming down his face, and Queen Elizabeth seated alone in the chapel.

Start cloud mining Bitcoin from as low as $70 a day with the most profitable Bitcoin cloud mining service, NHash.London, UK, May 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A few weeks ago, the hash rate of Bitcoin dropped about 20% leaving many analysts skeptical of the long-term sustainability of the largest cryptocurrency. Despite the drop, the enthusiasm around the mining of Bitcoin remains as strong as ever with a rising mining difficulty and more miners coming into the fray. Photo Available Here Despite growing into the strongest computational network, Bitcoin has slowly turned into an activity only suitable for the rich. Bitcoin mining requires technical knowledge, expensive equipment, and high electricity costs, which makes it difficult for the common man to make a profit from mining the crypto.

Lucid Motors released an analyst day presentation last week as it drives toward closing its merger with special-purpose acquisition company (SPAC) Churchill Capital IV (NYSE: CCIV), providing investors with a handful of important updates as it approaches the start of production for its Air sedan. The SPAC's shares have remained weak in recent weeks, lacking any major positive catalysts. When the deal was first announced in February, Lucid had around 7,500 reservations, which climbed to 8,000 by the end of that month.

A Greek member of the European Parliament and convicted neo-Nazi arrested in Belgium under a European arrest warrant arrived in Athens on Saturday following his extradition, airport police sources told AFP. Ioannis Lagos, a 48-year-old former nightclub bouncer and former member of the banned Golden Dawn party, arrived at Athens International Airport at 3:20 pm local time accompanied by five Greek policemen. He had been arrested in Brussels to serve a 13-year jail term in Greece.Lagos, who was detained last month shortly after the European Parliament stripped him of his immunity and had been held in a prison in the Belgian capital for almost two weeks, is expected to appear before the prosecutor and on Sunday to be transported to prison. Initially, the MEP had refused his extradition but he later dropped his opposition to be sent home to face jail. The defendant was elected to the European Parliament in 2019. He entered as a member of the far-right Golden Dawn group, but later rebadged as an independent.In October, along with other leaders and members of Golden Dawn, he was convicted in Greece on several charges, including that of running a criminal organisation. But the court ruling could not be enforced while Lagos continued to enjoy an MEP's immunity from prosecution and to reside in Brussels, the seat of the parliament.The marathon trial of the Golden Dawn top brass, including founder and longterm leader Nikos Michaloliakos, was seen as one of the most important in Greece's modern political history. In total, more than 50 defendants were convicted of crimes ranging from running a criminal organisation, murder and assault, to illegal weapons possession.The jail terms capped a stunning downfall for a party which was the country's third most popular in 2015.The crackdown was sparked by the murder of a 34-year-old anti-fascist rapper, Pavlos Fyssas, stabbed to death in front of a cafe in a western Athens suburb in September 2013.(AFP)

Today brings exciting news for Bridgerton‘s millions of fans: an intriguing prequel series is in the pipeline. The spin-off series will explore the origins of Queen Charlotte, the fan favourite character played by Golda Rosheuvel in the main Bridgerton series. Queen Charlotte does not appear in the original novels by Julia Quinn – she was created especially for the Netflix series – so writer Shonda Rhimes will have plenty of room for manoeuvre in crafting her backstory. In addition to introducing the young Queen Charlotte, the spin-off series will also explore the backstories of young Violet Bridgerton and Lady Danbury, the characters played in Bridgerton by Ruth Gemmell and Adjoah Andoh. Deadline reports that Netflix has also announced that Jess Brownell will serve as showrunner for seasons three and four of Bridgerton, which have already been ordered by the streamer following the show’s enormously successful launch. Chris Van Dusen served as show runner on season one and is also overseeing the eagerly anticipated second season. Rhimes will oversee the Queen Charlotte spin-off series. “Many viewers had never known the story of Queen Charlotte before Bridgerton brought her to the world, and I’m thrilled this new series will further expand her story and the world of Bridgerton,” said Netflix head of global TV, Bela Bajaria. “Shonda and her team are thoughtfully building out the Bridgerton universe so they can keep delivering for the fans with the same quality and style they love. And by planning and prepping all the upcoming seasons now, we also hope to keep up a pace that will keep even the most insatiable viewers totally fulfilled.” Rhimes added: “As we continue to expand the world of Bridgerton, we now have the opportunity to devote even more of the Shondaland fold to the Bridgerton-verse. We’ve worked with Jess Brownell for over a decade and have long wanted to find the right project to place in her hands. When it came time to pass the baton, I knew this unique voice was vital to the future of the show.” So, there we have it: some good news for Bridgerton fans to help compensate for Regé-Jean Page’s devastating departure.

The head of Ethiopia's election board said Saturday it would be impossible to hold a planned June 5 vote due to mounting logistical issues and postponed it without giving a new date. "The vote will not happen on June 5 ... we can't tell you the date as the board has to examine the inputs it received from parties," said election board chairwoman Birutkan Mideksa.She cited a plethora of logistical delays, such as finalising voter registration, training electoral staff, printing and distributing ballot papers."Practically, it became impossible to deliver all these at the originally slated dates."She said the new date would take into account the rainy season -- which runs from about June to September.The nation of 110 million people was due to choose national and regional parliamentarians in the election.The MPs elect the prime minister, who is head of government, as well as the president -- a largely ceremonial role.
