islam prince harry White jihadi plot to kill Prince Harry   homeless fraudster turns to Islam for free prison bed and food

IN “Jihad Brit in Harry kill plot”, the Sun reports on “a white Muslim convert” who “walked into a police station and told cops he was going to kill Prince Harry”.

Ashraf Islam made his chilling threat a day after the murder of soldier Lee Rigby in Woolwich, South London.

Islam, 30, is now facing ten years in jail after admitting threatening to kill soldier Harry, 28, who is third in line to the throne.

Islam has stood in the doc at Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court and pleaded guilty. He’s in custody awaiting sentencing.

The Sun adds that police allegedly found a laptop belonging to Islam “showing internet searches for kidnapping, guns and vans. His internet history is also said to show he had been on terrorist and firearms websites.”

In photos: Prince Harry’s anti-landmine trip to the landmine loving USA

PRINCE Harry is in the USA. The focus is on the girls cooing for the guys and his work with the Halo Trust, the world’s biggest demining organisation. The United States is not a signatory to the 1997 international Mine Ban Treaty. It reserves the right to deploy “smart mines” that can deactivate or self-destruct. Mines are ok, so long as you blow people’s legs off with sensitivity and thought.

In photos: Prince Harry, Prince William and Duchess Kate do Harry Potter

THE tree amigos, the House of Windsor’s A-team, Brand Royal that is Duchess Kate, Prince Harry Baseball Cap and Wills made a visit to the Harry Potter film set during their visit to Warner Bros studios in Leavesden, Herts, where the movies were produced.  Looking at Harry it is obvious that he could play Ron Weasley, the third wheel in the Hermione  Granger / Harry Potter love triangle. One can imagine the Queen looking over the pictures and wondering if the Royal baby will be ginger, like Harry or, say, James Hewitt. But who needs magick when you have PR, lawyers and compliance..?

When Princess Diana played Golden Girl Dorothy, dodged a ‘randy old Taurean’ and went to the gay bar with Freddie Mercury

cleao rocos diana When Princess Diana played Golden Girl Dorothy, dodged a randy old Taurean and went to the gay bar with Freddie Mercury

KENNY Everett’s busty distraction Cleo Rocos has a book out. One section deals with the time she met Princess Diana. Over bellinis, Shy Di would refer to people as “that randy old Taurean” or “Typical Sagittarian, always dancing on the table  with a bottle of vodka  down his trousers.”

Everett, Rocos and Di then went back to Kenny’s penthouse to watch The Golden Girls. Mercury popped over. The foursome ad libbed their version of the show. Everett was Blanche, Diana was Dorothy, Mercury was Sophie and Rocos was Rose.

When Zara Phillips met an ‘unnamed overzealous’ guard at the Cheltenham Festival

PA 16053311 When Zara Phillips met an unnamed overzealous guard at the Cheltenham Festival

HOW the media works: the paper have been at the Cheltenham Festival. If Pippa Middleton is not in the stalls, the journalists turn their eyes to any other female Royal. They spot Zara Phillips.

The Telegraph’s Andrew Hough reports:

She may be the Queen’s grand-daughter but that did not stop security guards at Cheltenham Festival from blocking Zara Phillips access to the parade ring.

The Daily Mail’s Ruth Styles and Louise Eccles report:

She might be the Queen’s granddaughter, but that does not always guarantee the royal treatment. Zara Phillips was blocked from leaving the parade ring at Cheltenham yesterday by a security guard.

Artist gives Queen Elizabeth a make-over on Australian five dollar note

WHEN her Majesty The Queen puts down her copy of Majesty‘The Quality Royal Magazine’ – (an ITV documentary reveals that Liz subscribes to the organ that records her own life. Whenever Phil asks her how her day went she can just toss the mag over to him and say,’There. Take a look’) she can look at her face on coins and bank notes. (Her Majesty is thought to favour the 10pence piece because it has no crow’s feet.) It’s all pretty samey – unless she see what this artist has down to her likeness on the Australian five dollar note.

Duchess Kate calls her child Elizabeth Diana Carole

PA 15970237 Duchess Kate calls her child Elizabeth Diana Carole

USWeekly says Duchess Kate’s baby will be called Elizabeth Diana Carole. They’ll name the child after Prince William’s granny. Middle names will be nods to the couple’s mothers.

The brains at the US glossy maust have spent moments working that out. The only good thing is that initials, EDC, will give Lizzy-DC a name for her signature Eau De Cologne. But other than that it’s low on thrills. Still, we know it’s a girl. And, according to OK!’s cover, “Having a girl would make Diana happy.”

HOW does the media respond to news that Queen Elizabeth 2 is unwell? Her Majesty has been at the King Edward VII Hospital, London, where Kate Middleton went for morning sickness treatment. The Daily Mail leads with “DON’T MAKE A FUSS” – new of the Queen’s “stoicism” – the Times leads with two coppers stood by a door (one of them is 7ft 2in PC Anthony Wallyn) and the Sun finds a pun withy “Her Majesty The Queasy”.

Prince Harry knocks them bandy in Lesotho – photos

WHEN Prince Harry went to Lesotho, he met with Prince Seeiso at the Kananelo Centre for the Deaf, in the Maseru district of Lesotho. Harry danced, and in any language we knew what he meant. Extempore dancing is to most of us a hellish ordeal. At dos, Anorak heads to the middle of the dance floor in the hope that everyone dancing around him will act like those whirling anchovy shoals in wildlife documentaries, swirling about and making the centre invisible. It never works. The music changes; people slump off;  an overexcited woman commands just one more dance. The band strikes up Wake Me Up Before You GoGo, by Wham! Game Harry then went to St. Bernadette School for the Visually Impaired. It was all for charity. At one point someone drew a picture of Prince William on the black baord, and everyone laughed:

Guess what Prince Harry’s new bird Cressida Bonas was nicknamed at school

DID you know that Prince Harry’s new girlfriend, Cressida Bonas, had a nickname in school? The Mirror says she was known as “Bon-arse” by her friends. The Mirror informs its learned readers that it’s combination of the “French word for good and her surname”. The rets of you who didn’t go to a “Posh” school like Stowe, could not hope to think of nickname for a gel called BONAS. CRESSIDA BONAS…
