Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall visited Donaghadee in Co Down, Northern Ireland, yesterday where a curious schoolboy wanted to know how many TVs his mother had. Charles replied: “One I think – and maybe one or two elsewhere as well.”
The Queen, 95, is known to enjoy watching box sets, with Downton Abbey, Doctor Who and Coronation Street said to be among her favourite shows.
There were claims she watched some of The Crown but was not happy with how Philip was depicted in one episode of the Netflix hit.
Prince Charles answered the schoolboy’s question as he elbow-bumped several well-wishers during the couple’s walkabout. He unveiled a plaque to mark the harbour’s bicentenary before heading to Bangor.
New Dorgi for Queen
THE Queen has asked royal aides to help her find a new “dorgi” – after one of her two beloved pups passed away.
She has requested a list of reputable breeders after her dachshund-corgi cross Fergus died of a heart defect and left her other puppy, Muick on his own.
The dogs were given to the Queen by Prince Andrew when Prince Philip was admitted to hospital in February.
A royal insider said Her Majesty took “great comfort” in having them “by her side” and “has enjoyed getting out and walking them” since The Duke of Edinburgh died last month.
They added: “Muick is a livewire and would love a playmate to keep him busy.”
Archewell’s gift to India
Harry and Meghan’s Archewell Foundation is to build its third community relief centre, this time in Covid-hit India.
The Mumbai project, announced on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s third wedding anniversary, is part of their non-profit organisation’s partnership with World Central Kitchen.
The foundation says the centres can quickly become emergency response kitchens or vaccination sites – and in calmer times food distribution hubs, schools, clinics, or spaces where the community can gather.
Archewell’s other relief centres are in Dominica and Puerto Rico.
