The only time I have ever seen Charlene smiling really, really big was when she was exiting the Cathedral after baptizing her twins. I have never seen her so happy!

And yes, both she and Latifah have amazing skin and bone structure.

Naomi Watts meeting royal family!

Actress Naomi watts (who played Diana) has stated before that she does not want to meet prince charles, William and Harry etc because she played there mom in a film.

Do you think it would be very awkward if Naomi met any of them in a person say at a film premier for example?

I think probably more on her part than theirs. I doubt any of the family has watched the movie (to be fair I don't think most people have...), she's not the first person to portray a member of the RF, or even Diana herself, and isn't likely to be the last (on either count).

The family has met a number of celebrities who have portrayed royals, including Helen Mirren who has portrayed the Queen a number of times.

Yeah but with Helen mirren she portrayed a living royal family member not too mention it's a very sensitive issue with there mom dying in a crash. I'd imagine William/Harry would be offended with Naomi watts

Helen Mirren played the Queen in a movie about Diana's death. When he met her 2 years ago, William joked that he should probably call her Granny.

In recent years we've seen movies about Diana, the Queen, the Queen's father (George VI), the Queen's uncle (Edward VIII), and Queen Victoria. There is currently a Netflix series about the Queen and her family in the early years of her reign. There have easily been a half dozen made-for-tv movies about the romance of William and Kate.

I would hope that William and Harry are self aware enough to realize that their lives and the lives of their close family members are well documented subjects of international interest, and as such are going to be the subject of books, movies, TV shows, and the like for years to come. I honestly don't think they're going to be offended by the actors who portray them.

I don't think the BRF cares as long as the movie/show isn't slanderous. The fluff flies under the radar.

Remember, Princess Margaret's daughter married Daniel Chatto who played Prince Andrew in a Charles-Diana movie.

No, I think it was a private place. The dead don't need to be buried along side others, they're dead. Burial should respect the wishes of the deceased to a degree, but also take into consideration the desires of the living and the logistics of it.

I don't know what Diana's wishes were regarding what to do in the event of her death (or even that she had expressed them, given her age), but I think in burying her in a private place like Althorp Island the family gave her grave a degree of privacy that Diana never had in life, and enabled her family (particularly her sons) to mourn her in private.

It's seems like more of a Naomi Watts problem than a royal problem. Maybe she is embarrassed by Diana the movie being a bomb. Helen Mirren and Colin Firth don't seem to have a problem with meeting royals. But their movies were actually good.

Helen mirren had no problem meeting the queen who she has portrayed.

Or Collin Firth who played her father

I am sure Daniel Chatto has plenty of conversations with his wife's cousin Andrew at Christmas and Easter when the family gets together.

I would have just loved to read the queen's mind when she met actors who portrayed her family and herself!

Just come to post some old pictures.

The Spanish figure skaters Javier Fernández met Felipe and Letizia in 2016 after he won his 2nd World champion title in Boston.
[1] [2] [3]

Suddenly want to post these old stuffs because Javi just won his 6th consecutive European champion title in Moscow yesterday after the ups and downs in 2017. Yes I am here mostly because I want to tell you that I am happy for Javi who defends his title successfully again.

Javi will participate in PyeongChang Winter Olympics and he probably will be the flag bearer of Spain again.

Her third marriage was indeed to Prince (Heinrich) Ruzzo Reuss, count of Plauen. Her husband passed away in 1999. It is through her husband who was a friend of king Carl Gustaf (they attended boarding school together) that she became friends with the queen.

Fred Astaire's sister, Adele Astaire, married into the Cavendish family. She became Lady Charles Cavendish, but unfortunately despite being a love match their marriage was unhappy due to problems conceiving and alcoholism by her husband:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adele_Astaire


Not a Hollywood star, but JFK's sister, Kathleen Kennedy also married a Cavendish. She fell in love with Lord (Billy) Hartington, heir to the Duke of Devonshire title, when her family lived in England during her father's ambassadorship. Both families were against the love match due to religious differences. But the lovebirds did marry quietly before Hartington went off to fight in WWII. Unfortunately, he died in battle. Kathleen became Marchioness of Hartington instead of the Duchess of Devonshire. But she also died in a plane crash in the early 1940s before the war ended.

Interestingly, young Kathleen took the young British nobility set by storm with her charm, grace and fun sense of humor during a party at the famous Cliveden House. The regal residence was owned during the 1930s by the Astor family:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kathle..._of_Hartington

A book by Barbara Leaming chronicles the love story between Billy and Kathleen:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/...3-kick-kennedy

Now a luxury hotel, Cliveden House was where Meghan, her closest friends, and her mother Doria stayed the night before the royal wedding last May.
