Prince William and Kate kick off their two-day tour in Paris


Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge started their first trip to Paris.

The couple's trip took a sombre tone as the two visited Les Invalides military hospital and met with survivors of the 2015 Bataclan theatre terror attack.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge then flew off to Paris for a two-day Brexit charm offensive, meeting at Elysee Palace with French President Francois Hollande.

The couple will also attend a Six Nations rugby match between France and Wales at the Stade de France on Saturday.

"Kate was interested in my daughter's toy monkey she was holding and said that George had a toy rabbit called Bum Bum", one mother told the Press Association.

She underlined her French luxury statement with a necklace, earrings and watch by Cartier - a jewellery house associated with the Duchess of Windsor, Wallis Simpson.

Soccer world mourns the loss of Derry City captain Ryan McBride
A year ago, Derry player Josh Daniels lost his mother, sister, brother-in-law and nephews in the Buncrana pier tragedy. McBride made his debut for Derry in 2011 and quickly became a fan favourite for his tough tackling defensive style.

Judge Denies Motion For Preliminary Injunction Against Trump Travel Ban 2.0
He rejected the notion that the immigration ban was in any way a discriminatory religious test. But James says the laptop ban on flights might be the one time he's right.

Kate Middleton's perfectly styled tresses were tousled while performing a drill with French rugby fans at the Trocadero square on day two of her official visit to Paris with Prince William. The Cambridges also met with emergency service teams and first responders who helped the injured in the Nice and Paris attacks. William rebuffed a pupil's question about what he thought of Britain's Brexit vote to leave the 28-nation European Union, saying he could not answer. In an interview a year ago, he said he was aware of the criticism and willing to take on more royal duties.

The pair kicked off a busy day of engagements with a St. Patrick's celebration in London, and tonight they mixed with stars including actress Audrey Tatou, Dame Kristin Scott Thomas, who lives in the city, and footballer Robert Pires.

No official commemoration of Diana's death was planned during the trip, which comes just months before the 20th anniversary on Aug 31.

Which leaves the real question (after, how many kidneys would I need to sell for that bag/belt/dress), what will the Duchess wear for her next bout of very important/slightly tiresome business?

The museum remained opened during their visit with tourists appearing both delighted and shocked to see the couple and with some taking snapshots on their phones of the famous visitors.
