King Charles & Queen Camilla under fire as they are accused of ‘kick in teeth’ to staff

“Charles has never made any secret of the fact that he wants a slimmed-down Monarchy when he becomes King. He realizes that the public don’t want to pay for a huge Monarchy and, as he said, the balcony at Buckingham Palace would probably collapse,” he was reported to have said.

Now as his mother Queen Elizabeth II passed away and he acceded to the throne, King Charles didn’t waste time in making changes.

As reported by The Guardian, a dozen Clarence House staff were given notice of redundancy during the Monday service for the Queen in Edinburgh on Monday. The news was received as ‘unsettling’ by King Charles’ secretary.

He and Camilla have been living at Clarence House for nearly 20 years.

In his speech, King Charles said that the new duties imposed on him would mean cutting down on certain charitable work. Sadly, he could also cut down the number of employees, who were said to be left heartbroken by his decision to hand them in notice of redundancies.

Over 100 employees were told they could lose their job, some of whom spent decades serving the royal family.

At the time they were handed in the notice, they were working tirelessly to make King Charles’ elevation to the throne go without any issues.

“The change in role for our principals will also mean change for our household,” the letter written by Sir Clive Alderton, King Charles’s private secretary, said, as reported by The Guardian.

“The portfolio of work previously undertaken in this household supporting the former Prince of Wales’s personal interests, former activities, and household operations will no longer be carried out, and the household … at Clarence House will be closed down. It is therefore expected that the need for the posts principally based at Clarence House, whose work supports these areas will no longer be needed.”

This came as a shock to many as they were convinced their service will still be needed. The only change they expected was to be relocated to the King’s new household.

A source told the magazine that “Everybody is absolutely livid, including private secretaries and the senior team. All the staff have been working late every night since Thursday, to be met with this. People were visibly shaken by it.”

Apparently, the staff in question would be offered alternative positions in other households.

As this decision was made amid the period of mourning, the staff described it as ‘heartless.’

“The Duke of Edinburgh’s staff were paid for many months after his death. Some of these people are mourning the Queen – it is a bit too soon to be sending out redundancy letters when we haven’t even had the funeral. They are grieving. It is heartless,” an insider shared with The Guardian.

Mark Serwotka, the general secretary of The Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS), condemned the King’s act and stated, “While some changes across the households were to be expected, as roles across the Royal Family change, the scale, and speed at which this has been announced is callous in the extreme.”

He added, “Least of all because we do not know what staffing the incoming Prince of Wales and his family might need.”

Serwotka assured that PCS will “continue to work with the Royal Households to ensure that those staff have full job security.”

“We remain committed to supporting those colleagues across the wider Royal Family’s estates, whose futures are thrown into turmoil by this announcement at this already difficult time.”

Grant Harrold, who served as a butler to the King when he held the title Prince of Whales says he wasn’t surprised by this decision.

“Trust me, it’s not a shock for the household,” Harrold said. “When I joined, I was fully aware that if the Queen passed I would be redundant because my boss is no longer the Prince of Wales.”

Further, he added that “The good thing is, I know they will do everything possible to make sure that people are put into positions where possible – and, as I said, there will be people that want to retire or want a change of career.”

The top two staff members, King Charles’ private secretary Sir Clive Alderton and Queen Camilla’s private secretary, Ms. Sophie Densham, have been with the couple for years, and it was widely known that both earn quite a vast amount of money for their services. Even so, following the annual Sovereign Grant Report being disclosed, other staff members are reportedly furious.

According to this report, Alderton is paid between £205,000 and £210,000 – $260,000 and $266,000.

Meanwhile, Sophie Densham only receives somewhere between £90,000 and £95,000 – $114,000 to $120,000 – yearly from the taxpayer-funded account.

“I’m really shocked by the disparity, and I’m astonished by Sophie’s salary — that is a kick in the teeth. She is a real grafter, and hers is a massive, bloody busy job,” a former senior courtier told The Times.

And while Densham accompanies the Queen at every royal event, Alderton only attends King Charles’ “most high-profile outings” and he’s provided with housing for “better performance” of his duties and lives at Marlborough House, a short walk from his office at Buckingham Palace.

“Whether you think there’s a disparity in the pay because of their sex rather than their seniority, there is a question there,” a royal source said. “Sophie is known as being a very capable and dedicated support to the Queen.”

The Palace official said that “Her [Densham] remuneration package is set to a comparable position of the private secretary to the late Duke of Edinburgh.”

Do you think King Charles’ decision to give staff notice of redundancy came at the worst time possible?

Why Is This Family Picture Creepy?

Here is the seemingly normal picture of a family:

The family picture

It all seems like an innocent family photo taken on a beautiful day. All of them seem to be happily smiling at the camera. However, there is something that does not quite add up in this picture.

Did you spot that something? Interestingly, children seem to notice it very easily. However, in the case of adults, quite a few have struggled to find it. But when they did see it, all of them were left confused, to say the least.

The Bizarre Addition

If you still haven’t found it, then look at the smallest child on the picture’s left. She looks adorable, doesn’t she? But look at her shoulder. See for yourself:

The mysterious hand

Did you see a hand there? Now, see if you can spot everyone else’s hand. Do you see why this family picture is bizarre?

Just to make sure: both of the mother’s hands are used in holding the infant. The older sister’s hands are in her lap. And, the father is way too far away to be resting one hand on the shoulder of the leftmost child.

So who does that hand belong to? The creepy question has made this seemingly normal family picture go viral. People have come up with several theories. One says that the family picture has been photoshopped. Others believe that this is a true supernatural picture. Another theory suggests that the oldest child is a later addition. As such, it is the mother’s hand from the original picture.

So what do you think? Is it human trickery, or is there really something more in the picture than meets the eye? What would anyone even gain from doing this deception?

Let us know in the comments below, what it might actually be! We are yet to get a proper answer for it.

Amber Heard Accused Of Doing This To Her Daughter

Fans are deeply concerned about Amber Heard and her daughter Oonagh after learning of a ‘creepy’ detail…

Heard has largely been unseen since losing her trial against Johnny Depp, and that appears to be no coincidence. The star has reportedly been using a pseudonym to avoid any attention.

The name she’s been going by was revealed after she used it to rent a villa.

Her newfound peace of mind is a stark contrast to the turmoil she experienced earlier this year during the most recent judicial processes related to the lingering repercussions of her marriage to Johnny Depp.

Following the 2 years they were married, the pair have spent many more years in and out of court over the divorce and a subsequent op-ed she penned about being a victim of domestic violence.

However, it does appear as if Heard is focusing on herself now, following the infamous trial that took over everyone’s lives.

The star has been seen enjoying time with her daughter, while reportedly renting a villa in Mallorca, Spain. The mansion was reportedly once on the market for 2.8 million Euros but was removed when she moved there.

The Spanish newspaper El Mundo reported that she used a different name to rent the property, presumably to not draw much attention to herself.

Locals have recognized her, but she has allegedly seamlessly blended into the community.

“Everyone here treats her like one of the others; in fact, she’s been in this town for months without anyone knowing,” a local resident told El Mundo.

The idea of anonymity must be ideal for Heard now after such a public trial. To further that anonymity, she used the name Martha Jane Cannary to rent the villa she’s staying at, according to El Mundo.

Martha Jane Cannary was the name of frontierswoman Calamity Jane, an iconic Wild West figure. As the story goes, after a lengthy career of swashbuckling and encountering crazy adventures, the frontierswoman finally traveled with Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show and made performances across the nation.

Despite others slandering her and questioning her decisions, Cannary set her own route and handled things in her own way. There are still varying accounts of her today, including whether she was a saint or a criminal.

However, it isn’t this choice of name that fans have an issue with, but much rather the name of her daughter – Oonagh.

Per Just In, Depp’s 2 children, Jack and Lily-Rose, are named as such after characters from the 1985 movie Legend.

But it turns out that the name of Heard’s daughter actually comes from the flick too, albeit with a slightly different spelling. This fairy character called Oona actually falls in love with Jack.

Fans are thus accusing Heard of using her daughter in order to get back at Depp.

One wrote: “She wants Johnny to leave HER alone – is she serious? My God she is delusional and needs help. Heaven help her poor innocent baby, what hope has that child got with Amber as an example?”

While a second said: “She is obsessed with him and needs to listen to herself in what she is saying. She wants Johnny to leave her alone. Well then back off and stop stocking him and stop trying to take everything from him. He’s moving on with his life let him alone.”

This beloved Hollywood star disappeared after a tragic accident left her scarred for life

Sydne Rome was considered the golden girl from the American Midwest, who started her career in Europe and enchanted millions. Unfortunately, she eventually decided to leave Hollywood behind after an accident left her scarred for life.

Rome first showed interest in acting while at high school. None of her parents, not even a member of her family, was in the acting business, but she somehow fell for it.

“There was nothing in the family that should have given me my craze for acting,” she told the Daily News in 1974. “My father had a plastic company, and my mother is just ‘mom.’ I have two sisters and two brothers, all younger.”

Rome had other plans for the future, but the thought of becoming an actress was there and she decided to listen to her heart so she moved to Pennsylvania, and the famous Carnegie Tech School of Acting at Pittsburgh University.

“I planned to enter Northwestern University after finishing high school. But there, I was told that if I were seriously interested in acting, I should study at Tech. So I did, and I’m glad I did,” she told The Pittsburgh Press.

At university, she was coached by the likes of voice actress Edith Skinner and Bern Stearn, which led to roles in several stage productions, including Tania in A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Nina in Anton Chekhov’s The Sea Gull.

However, once she graduated from the university, Rome had a hard time finding her way to the place where dreams come true, Hollywood. She was rejected for the role in the film Candy so after another year with the Pasadena Playhouse she decided to try her luck in Europe.

Speaking of that chapter of her life, Rome told the Daily News, “I had a terrible time in Rome with young Italian directors who wanted me to play in the nude. I didn’t want to do it. Now my view is different. Playing in the nude has become part of our trade. Provided it is really called for in the script and doesn’t involve brutal love scenes, it’s OK by me.”

As the 70s were coming to an end, Rome starred in David Hemmings’s film Just a Gigolo alongside David Bowie, with whom she allegedly had an affair, according to the media.

“We were friends. When I was going to Berlin to have the first [script] readings, I was told that they hadn’t found the leading man. He [Bowie] had an interest in that period of Germany, between the two world wars, so I thought maybe David would like to do this part. I called him and asked if I could send him the script. We did so and he accepted,” she told NME in 2021.

“I met him because he called me to accompany him to Paris to see the premiere of his film, and I accepted [the offer for Just a Gigolo] immediately,” Rome. “We were together for a year. He was so much fun and appetizing.”

At the beginning of the 80s, Rome returned to Italy and started making music, releasing several albums.

At one point in her life, she felt devastated because her career in the States never really flourished the way she imagined it.

“I’m well-known worldwide except America,” she said. “I love creative work, but I hate the business side of my ‘career.’ An actress can get to feel she’s just a business asset – that no one cares about her, but only what she represents in terms of a deal.”

“Being in films can be terrible for a woman – no, it’s not just having passes made, I can take care of that,” Sydne continued. “But it’s the years you have to slog before anyone realky respects you at all. Actresses are not supposed to have any brains.”

She concluded: “Maybe that’s why so many actors and actresses feel insecure.– the woman more than the men. I have several actress friends, and we cry on each others’ shoulders. Actually, actors make friends easily, because they don’t really belong to any particular class – they’re not aristocrats, or middle-class, or lower-class. They can fit in anywhere.”

Following her divorce from her first husband Emillio Lari, Rome tied the knot with doctor Roberto Bernabei. The two adopted two twin sisters together, Vanessa and Jesse.

In 2009, Rome and one of her daughters got involved in a car accident after she ended up veering off the road and hitting a tree. The airbag blew up her face and left a lot of damage.

“I went to the hospital and they stitched up my skin,” Rome said, adding that the doctors didn’t realize that her facial muscles had taken a hit because of the accident. “That part of my face after a while became paralyzed, and so 10 years ago I had physical therapy and today I’m a little bit better.”

Despite the injuries that left her face scattered, she continued appearing in many productions, mainly in Italy. Among the rest, she’d been starring in the Italian television series Don Matteo, appearing in 53 episodes between 2021 and 2022.

King Charles to break 30-year tradition for 75th birthday – the risky decision could affect his health

Trooping the Colour, which is a significant event celebrating the public birthday of the reigning monarch of Britain, has been a beloved royal tradition for hundreds of years. This year, on June 17, it will celebrate King Charles, although his actual birthday is on November 14.

This would be the first time that Charles celebrates his birthday twice since this is his first year as the head of the monarchy.
Trooping the Colour typically takes place every year on the second Saturday in June and has its origins on the battlefield.

“In order to ensure that every soldier would be able to recognise their colours, the flag would be marched or ‘trooped’ regularly round the ranks. A regiment’s colours came to have huge significance for serving soldiers, and the gain or loss of colours were seen as decisive moments in battle,” the Royal Museums Greenwich shares on its website.

“This military function gained royal significance during the reign of George II, the first monarch to tie his birthday celebrations into the summer ceremony – despite the fact that his actual birthday was in November.

“[King] Edward VII also had a November birthday, and it was during his reign that the summer ‘official’ birthday celebrations were standardized. It was also under [King] Edward VII that the inspection of the troops by the monarch became part of the celebration.”

The event will include over 1,400 soldiers, 400 horses, and 400 musicians who will give King Charles a royal salute.

The tradition is for the monarch to ride in the parade, but since the late Queen was an at advanced age, the last time she participated in the parade honoring her royal birthday was back in 1986. This year, King Charles is reviving that tradition as the Palace confirmed he would be riding on horseback besides being 74.

“His Majesty The King will take the Salute as Colonel in Chief of the seven regiments of the Household Division, at the Birthday Parade on Horse Guards Parade, on Saturday June 17 2023,” the palace wrote in a statement.

“Marking the first time that the reigning Monarch has ridden at Trooping the Colour since 1986, when Queen Elizabeth II last rode, The King will join His Majesty’s Birthday Parade on horseback.”

Over the years, King Charles has witnessed his grandfather, King George VI, on horseback and then his mother, Queen Elizabeth II.
However, many are worried that this may harm the King’s health as it can negatively impact his back, something he had experienced hard time with due to several accidents he’s been involved in, involving falling off a horse multiple times.

This was something many people learned about from Harry’s all-tell memoir Spare.

In it, the young Prince wrote that his father was once involved in a polo accident after falling off a horse and was in “constant pain.”

He aggravated his back injury three years later when he fell off a horse at Windsor.
“Prescribed by his physio, these exercises were the only effective remedy for the constant pain in Pa’s neck, and back,” Harry wrote.

Explaining how King Charles hurt his back, the Harry explained: “Old polo injuries, mostly.”

he then added: “As a boy, I’d seen Pa take [a hard] fall, the horse giving way, the ground simultaneously smacking and swallowing him. I remembered thinking: ‘Why’s Pa snoring?’ And then someone yelling: ‘He’s swallowed his tongue!” Harry wrote, “A quick-thinking player jumped from his horse and saved Pa’s life.”

In 1998, then-prince Charles broke a rib while hunting foxes, and in 2001, he allegedly fractured a bone in his shoulder again after being involved in a horse falling accident.

That same year, he fell off a horse again and was forced to spend a night at a hospital.

“He was unconscious for a very brief time, was taken to the local hospital and is now being transferred to Cheltenham General Hospital where he will stay for a precautionary overnight stay,” spokesman Patrick Harrison said at the time.

Back in August 2021, the King himself admitted that he has struggled with back issues during a conversation with Poet laureate Simon Armitage.

“I’d give anything to be more hands-on. But it’s the time that’s always the problem,” King Charles of his love for gardening.

“I love planting trees and plants, but my problem now is my back’s not so good. So I spend my life trying to do it on my knees. Which is all very well but digging on your knees is an interesting business.”

We truly hope King Charles would have a spectacular time during the parade and he won’t experience any inconveniences.

We need to pray for Michael Douglas. See here

Everyone was taken aback when they saw the most recent photographs of Michael Douglas, in which the actor can be seen sporting a strikingly different appearance compared to his previous appearances in

public. In these photographs, the actor can be seen wearing a strikingly different appearance than in his previous public appearances.

In comparison to his prior appearances in public, the actor can be seen wearing a drastically different look in these images, which were taken relatively recently.

The actor, who is 78 years old, has been in Paris on business, and when he is not filming, he has been spotted strolling around on the cobblestone streets of the city and taking in the lovely atmosphere of the city.

In February, when Michael Douglas attended the Screen Actors Guild Awards (SAG), he did so with his hair

chopped shorter and exuding an aura of elegance that is generally associated with him. In other words, he looked like the Michael Douglas we know and love.

In addition to this astonishing transformation in his physical appearance, Douglas has mentioned in the past that he has trouble recalling things in the short term.

It has been exactly a year since I came to this revelation. “It has come as a bit of a surprise to me how much energy I have lost as the pandemic has progressed,” she said.

It comes as something of a surprise to me that I have been able to expend as much less energy as I have given that I have spent a significant amount of more time sitting on the couch doing, essentially, nothing.

My remembrance of things that took place in the more recent past is not as reliable, despite the fact that I have a good memory for things that happened in the distant past.

I’m looking into it, ” he said in an interview that ultimately ended up being published in ARRP Magazine, where he exposed the information.

During a basketball match between the Metropolitans 92 and the CSP Limoges, the American performer was observed among the crowd.

The match was being held in France at the time. Around that period, the competition was taking place in France.

It was Douglas himself who published the pictures to the website; in them, he is seen standing with other players and celebrities in tracksuits after the game.

In addition, Douglas was the one who uploaded the pictures.

Bruce Willis in an homage to Michael Clarke Duncan

Michael Clarke Duncan: The Gentle Giant of Hollywood
When it comes to legendary figures in Hollywood, Michael Clarke Duncan is a name that instantly resonates. Standing tall at 6 feet 5 inches and boasting an imposing physique that made him a natural fit for rough and tough roles, Duncan was far more than what met the eye. Known for his soothing voice and infectious smile, Duncan was a warm-hearted individual with an extraordinary talent that continues to inspire artists worldwide.

Early Life and Journey to Stardom
Born on December 10, 1957, in Chicago, Duncan was raised by a single mother who instilled in him a firm sense of responsibility and an enduring love for the arts. Despite a challenging upbringing, Duncan dared to dream and aspired to transcend his working-class roots.

His journey to stardom was unconventional to say the least. Prior to gracing the big screen, Duncan held a multitude of jobs ranging from being a bodyguard for some of Hollywood’s biggest stars, to working as a bouncer, and even a ditch digger. But a chance encounter with a casting director altered the course of his life, paving his way into the acting industry and thrusting him into the Hollywood limelight.

Career Highlights: From Armageddon to The Green Mile
Duncan’s Hollywood debut came in 1998 with his role as Bear in Michael Bay’s action-packed film, “Armageddon.” His genuine demeanor and undeniable on-screen presence resonated with audiences, opening the door for the role that would not only define his career, but also earn him global fame.

In 1999, Duncan brought to life John Coffey, a gentle giant with a mystical healing ability, in the Stephen King adaptation “The Green Mile,” directed by Frank Darabont. Despite sharing the screen with seasoned actors like Tom Hanks, Duncan’s powerful and nuanced performance earned him an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor.

An Array of Impressive Roles and Unforgettable Voice-Overs
Duncan continued to enthrall audiences with a myriad of roles in films such as “The Whole Nine Yards,” “Planet of the Apes,” and “Sin City.” His distinctive voice also breathed life into animated characters in “Brother Bear” and “Kung Fu Panda.”

Regrettably, Duncan’s life was cut short in 2012 due to complications following a heart attack at the age of 54. Despite his untimely departure, his spirit continues to inspire through the characters he portrayed and the lives he touched, both on and off the screen.

A Singer Looks to Her Grandparents for Song Lyric Inspiration, and the Resulting Heartfelt Track Ends Up Becoming Viral…

Relationships, particularly romantic ones, can be challenging and complex terrain to navigate successfully. A young lady took some wise counsel she was given after the end of a romantic engagement and put it into a song, which has since gained a lot of traction on various social media platforms.

A recent edition of The Kelly Clarkson Show included an interview with singer and songwriter Shaylen, who hails from the city of Nashville.

Kelly used the opportunity to introduce her audience to Shaylen. Shaylen shed some light on the background of the lovely song “Do It Right the First Time,” which she wrote. A heartbreaking breakup was the beginning of everything.

“This is the person I believed I was going to marry and probably the toughest breakup that I went through,” Shaylen said.

The very first thing that came to Shaylen’s mind was to call or text her mother. But, her mother soon diverted her attention to a different source. “So, she is saying things like, “Call your grandparents, they have been married for a total of 75 years.”

Shalylen claimed that she boarded a plane and travelled out to see her grandparents so that she could spend some time with them and converse. Shaylen’s grandmother and grandfather imparted to her words of wisdom on relationships and significant people, which would later serve as inspiration for song lyrics.

I was like, ‘What’s the secret?’  She’s like, ‘You must laugh at everything because nothing is that serious in retrospect.”

The elderly man who raised Shaylen shared with her that when it comes to romantic partnerships, “giving it all you’ve got and being content with the outcomes” is the key to success.

“And my grandfather would say, “You have to do the best that you can.” Love your hardest. And there are instances when it’s possible that you won’t do it perfect the very first time, but that’s Fine because everything turns out the way it’s intended to.”

Shaylen also said that once she put her grandparents’ advise into a song and uploaded it to TikTok, the reaction was tremendous, and she “startled out” as a result of the overwhelming amount of positive feedback she received. She said that a good number of individuals had requested “Do It Right the First Time” to be played at their weddings.
