"When I was in Bakhmut yesterday, our heroes gave me the battle flag. The flag of those who defend Ukraine, Europe and the world at the cost of their lives.

In the 1970s,  Alpedrete, Madrid, was famous for its Fiestas Navideñas. Village elders rode into the village on horseback dressed as The Three Kings in full regalia.

As the remains of the Queen were solemnly lowered into the Royal Vault at St. George’s, the Sovereign’s Piper slowly walked down the hallway, from the doorway between the chapel and the Dean's Cloister, his music fading away with him. It was a most poignant tribute, a most moving, a hauntingly beautiful rendition for a Sovereign who served her Realms so well for seven decades. “Dearie” now “sleeps” beneath St. George’s Chapel with Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince Charming love of her life who passed away just 17 months ago on 9 April 2021.

"As you may possibly have noticed from time to time, I have tended to make a habit of sticking my head above the parapet and generally getting shot off. . .If you become the sovereign, you play the role in the way that it is expected. So, clearly, I won’t be able to do the same things."

Irpin is newly named "Hero City of Ukraine" by the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense. Just a stone's throw away from the center of Kyiv, the Russians thought they'd cakewalk through Irpin and take Ukraine's capital. Thwarted by Irpin, the Russians beat an ignominious retreat. Let its street art clue you in on the essence of this Hero City!
