    Duke and Duchess of Cambridge 'besotted' with new puppy that has helped them get over death of Lupo

    When their beloved cocker spaniel, Lupo, died last month, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were heartbroken. But their grief was tempered by the arrival of a new puppy, with whom the whole family is said to be “besotted.” The new cocker spaniel, whose name has not yet been revealed, was given to the family by the Duchess’s brother, James Middleton, before Lupo died. And ensuring it remains a family affair, the puppy is Lupo’s niece. Mr Middleton, 33, bred his first litter of puppies from his dog Ella in 2011. He kept one, called Luna, but gave her brother Lupo to the Duchess in early 2012 after the Duke deployed for six weeks to the Falkland Islands while serving as an RAF search and rescue pilot. Last summer, Mr Middleton, who at the time was staying with his parents at their Berkshire home, bred another litter of six puppies with Luna as their mother. The Cambridges, along with their children Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, two, are said to have had the pick of the litter.

    Prince Harry says 'time is running out' for social media reform in the wake of Capitol Hill violence

    The Duke of Sussex has warned that “what happens online does not stay online” as he said time was running out for urgent social media reform. The Duke, 36, suggested that the magnitude of the problem could no longer be overstated, claiming that everyone had been “deeply affected by the current consequences of the digital space.” He accused social media platforms of shunning their responsibilities, highlighting the role that they played in the recent US Capitol riots as well as the treatment of the Rohingya population in Myanmar. “There is no way to downplay this,” he told Fast Company website. “There was a literal attack on democracy in the United States, organised on social media, which is an issue of violent extremism. "We are losing loved ones to conspiracy theories, losing a sense of self because of the barrage of mistruths, and at the largest scale, losing our democracies."

    Prince Andrew's Pitch@Palace Global on 'pause' after close friend quits

    The Duke of York’s flagship business enterprise is hanging by a thread after his close friend, a Swedish billionaire, quit and the company’s offices shut down. Sports tycoon Johan Eliasch has stepped down from Pitch@Palace Global, after some 15 staff resigned in a year, leaving only an accountant to oversee what is left of the company in an administrative role. A spokesperson insisted that the company “remains in a pause position while its future direction and strategy is determined” rather than being shut down for good. However, there are no plans to relaunch the Dragons Den-style initiative in the foreseeable future, “in fact the opposite,” a source told The Telegraph, as it emerged that even its ownership was under review. Any decision to wind up the project, one of the Duke’s sole remaining business interests, would come as a blow to the beleaguered royal. The initiative, which brokered deals between tech start-ups and wealthy investors, was thrown into disarray by his disastrous Newsnight interview in November 2019, after which its charitable arm was wound up as corporate sponsors withdrew support. The global arm, a private limited company, continued however, albeit with all references to the Duke quietly removed from its home page. What remained of the brand was moved out of its Buckingham Palace base to a nearby office space in London. However, even that has now been abandoned and the office address of its accountant, a tax specialist, is now the only one on file.
