Prince Andrew left ‘crushed’ after Garter day ban

Prince Andrew has reportedly been left ‘crushed and confused’ after he was banned from attending this week’s Garter Day service

The 62-year-old Duke of York was nowhere to be seen as the pompous ceremony kicked off, one of the most colourful days on the royal calendar.

It’s believed Prince William and his father, Charles were the two individuals who intervened, ensuring their disgraced relative was not allowed to take part.

William allegedly threatened to pull out of the event altogether if his uncle took part, and was ‘alarmed’ at even the prospect Andrew was going to be in attendance.

It’s believed the final decision was made only hours prior to the event kicking off, as Andrew’s name was left on the order of service.

Meanwhile, 96-year-old Queen Elizabeth attended some of the private elements of the event, even posing for a photograph with her son, Charles and his wife, Camilla.

William is an Executive News Producer at TICKER NEWS, responsible for the production and direction of news bulletins. William is also the presenter of the hourly Weather + Climate segment. With qualifications in Journalism and Law (LLB), William previously worked at the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) before moving to TICKER NEWS. He was also an intern at the Seven Network's 'Sunrise'. A creative-minded individual, William has a passion for broadcast journalism and reporting on global politics and international affairs.

With Daniel Craig retiring from the role of James Bond, speculation is already rife as to who will take over as 007.

While some fans are clamoring for a woman or a person of color to take on the iconic role, Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson say they are open to anyone who can do the job.

“It’s not about being male or female,” Broccoli told Variety. “You could be any color, but it has to be the best person for the job.”

The producers also said that they are looking for someone who can bring something new to the role, while still paying homage to the legacy of James Bond.

“We want somebody who is fresh and exciting and has a take on the character that is unique,” Wilson said. “And most importantly, somebody who can carry on the tradition of 007 and give audiences around the world what they want.”

No matter who is ultimately chosen to take over as James Bond, it is clear that the producers are committed to keeping the character fresh and relevant for a new generation.

The iconic Hollywood sign is getting a fresh coat of paint ahead of a very important milestone

The giant letters on the hill are being cleaned and repainted before the sign’s 100th anniversary next year.

It’s expected to take around eight weeks, and requires around 250 gallons of fresh paint.

Of course, the original sign was dubbed ‘Hollywood-Land’ but the last four letters were removed in 1949.

It was only meant to last 18 months but has since gone on to define not only a town, but an entire industry.
