0 Have your say Whether you opt to fly the Scottish saltire or create your own flag says more about you than the actual banner itself does, writes Jim Duffy. I could probably recognise about ten flags from a crop of 30 that you laid out before me. The American flag, the Union Jack, the Saltire, the Irish tricolour, France, Germany, Wales, and a couple of others. But beyond that, I’d struggle. And, to be fair, I don’t think that it is all that important anyhow unless it’s a decider in a quiz game where I really must win! I’m not sure geography teachers would approve of my flag abilities. But, why do we put so much credence, importance and emotion into flags? Yes, there is the historical element to it all, but if you were to fly a flag outside your home, which flag would you fly? These questions recently popped up at a get-together I was at...At a Spanish villa on mainland Spain where I was invited to drinks, the owner and occupier was … [Read more...] about Jim Duffy: I’d prefer my own ‘moon flag’ to a Scottish Saltire

It’s not easy if you’re on your own.” There are plans for the coffee shop, which also has a music licence and an alcohol licence, to host a series of evening events, such as quiz nights, with the aim of “getting people together”.

WINDSOR, England (AP) — The Latest on the royal wedding (all times local): 9:20 p.m. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, otherwise known as Britain’s Prince Harry and bride Meghan Markle, will spend their first night as a married couple in Windsor Castle. An exclusive evening reception for 200 guests at the royal Frogmore House country estate could make it a late night before they can retire to the vast castle grounds. The newlyweds are expected to return to their home in Kensington Palace in London on Sunday. They are not immediately embarking on a honeymoon and have their first royal engagement as wife and husband scheduled at Buckingham Palace Tuesday. A honeymoon is expected to happen soon, though. Harry is partial to traveling in Africa, so it’s possible their destination may be somewhere there.

The forthcoming royal nuptials are sure to be a star-studded affair, with the couple boasting a host of high-profile pals. Here's what we know so far about who could be attending the big day. Who's invited to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding? The couple have kept fairly tight-lipped about the guest list – whilst the likes of The Queen, Prince Charles and Prince William will definitely be invited, there haven't been too many confirmed names as of yet. The invitations were printed on March 22, suggesting that the guest list has now been finalised. One thing seems certain, though – there won't be as many wedding guests as when Harry's big brother tied the knot in 2011. This is because Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding took place at Westminster Abbey, with 1,900 guests. St George's … [Read more...] about Who is invited to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding and who is NOT on the royal wedding guest list?
