U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on Wednesday the United States believes Russia is responsible for the attempted assassination of a former Russian double agent and his daughter in Britain — and the U.N. Security Council should hold the Kremlin "accountable."

"The United States believes that Russia is responsible for the attack on two people in the United Kingdom using a military-grade nerve agent," Haley said at a Security Council meeting in New York.

Haley said the United States stood in "absolute solidarity" with Britain after the country expelled 23 Russian diplomats in response to the chemical attack last week on the ex-spy, Sergei Skripal, and his daughter, Yulia.


Glad to hear this from our side of the pond.

Suppose the Russians held a FIFA 2018 World Cup event and nobody came? What, if any, would be the repercussions?

According to FIFA rules the countries that didn't turn up would be ineligible for the next world cup in 2022 - thus virtually handing it to Italy who failed to qualify this time ...

Thanks. I am totally ignorant when it comes to football (soccer) and actually American football also. Give me ice hockey.

Are any other countries supposed to be sending their royal family representatives to the World Cup?

Perhaps this would be a better subject for another thread such as William's patronage of FIFA thread and let this one get back to the British royal family current evens?

On Wednesday, March 14, Princess Anne as Chancellor of the University of London opened the new Theatre and Recital Hall at the Royal Academy of Music in London. The Duchess of Gloucester as President of the Royal Academy of Music attended the opening ceremony as well:

Queen Elizabeth today attended a ceremony at Windsor Castle in Berkshire at which the Duke of York officially became Colonel of the Grenadier Guards

This is rather worrying. I hope his hip hasn't become inflamed. Nice to see a very pregnant Zara there with the Queen as well as Eugenie, Jack and the Cambridges.

Jack being present at the service seems to imply that recent appearances by Meghan in public family events may not have been a special deference to her, but rather a new general policy concerning royal brides and grooms.

Happy Easter to all Forum members !

Probably Easter in Scotland

Very nice for Jack to have been invited. Nice to see the Cambridges there. Wonder why no Meghan and Harry. Hope The Duke of Edinburgh feels better soon.

Charles haven’t attended Easter Service at Windsor since the mid 90’s. Neither has Harry. Camilla has never attended. William just started back attending, now with Catherine, last year.

I'm disappointed that Harry and Meghan were not at the service, but they may be celebrating Easter with Doria in the US and it wasn't announced. Harry may be meeting with Tom Sr finally and it's being kept out of the press. Jack was there and it's only fair since he's Eugenie's fiance; Meghan was able to attend the Christmas service. (The Fail called Jack Eugenie's boyfriend.) Will and Kate showing up to the church after the queen arrives? I hope it was car trouble because this doesn't look cool.
