Just Two Weeks Until Royal Wedding

(London) – With the royal wedding just two weeks away, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are stepping out of the spotlight to prepare. The palace released more details about the upcoming event, but Markle’s dress is still top secret. Well…depending on who you ask. The Daily Mail posted an image that is believed to be Markle’s dress; a hand-stitched, heavily beaded design that is valued at just over 100k. 4BDD03AF00000578-0-image-a-82_1525466771557The site reports, multiple royal and fashion industry sources have revealed the actress has opted for British couturiers Ralph & Russo to make the first of two gowns she plans to wear on May 19. The above mentioned that she will reportedly walk down the aisle at St George’s Chapel in front of 600 guests  – and an estimated billion TV viewers worldwide – as well as  one for the reception being held afterwards by the Queen in St George’s Hall at Windsor Castle.02-meghan-markle-prince-harry-2.w710.h473
And contrary to a published tabloid report from Markle’s half brother, the palace says Markle’s dad is invited along with her mother and both parents are going to get acquainted with Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles a week before the wedding. MAIN-Meghan-Markle-Prince-HarryMarkle’s mother will ride with her to St. George’s Chapel on the big day, while her father will be waiting at the chapel to walk her down the aisle. The bride reportedly won’t have a maid-of-honor. Naturally, Prince William is Harry’s best man.

The late Princess Diana’s three siblings will attend the wedding, but baby Prince Louis will be resting at home. It’s still unclear if Prince George and Princess Charlotte will be among the page boys and flower girls.

Why Is Arsenal Star Ainsley Maitland-Niles’ Mom Homeless?

(London, UK) – He’s one of the Arsenal’s premiere players under a deal in the ballpark of $15-$18 Million residing in a million dollar apartment, but his mother is sleeping in crate.

When I saw this story, I couldn’t believe it. Trying not to judge, I read article after article trying to figure out what the background/history was between Ainsley and his 38-year old mom Jule. Did she abandoned him when he was a baby.?..NO. Was she a drug addict?…NO. Had she bee abusive towards him or his brother?…NO. It has to be something right? What would push a person to abandon his mother while he lives in luxury? Jule Niles says she’s trying to figure it out too.

Jule said she began living in a box at the Big Yellow Storage Facility three months ago after her relationship broke down with the 20-year old.

‘My son Ainsley could buy me a flat with two weeks or two month’s wages. But the money’s gone to his head and I’m in this position. My son plays for Arsenal and I am homeless and in a storage unit.  It’s not a home. I know what home feels like – to be able to shower, brush your teeth and sit in your room. All that I miss – but most of all I miss my family. It’s horrible. I just want to know what I’ve done wrong.’

Jule says she lives in fear that warehouse staff will realize she is sleeping in the container and turf her out on the streets.nintchdbpict000388969901She said, ‘I wait until everyone has gone home and slip into the unit when it is dark. It is heartbreaking. The area is covered in snow and it’s not been above freezing for days. I heard a homeless man died here overnight on Thursday.’

The Daily Mail reports, Jule told how when the boys were growing up she was sometimes so poor that she went hungry so they could eat and often considered stealing food. Ainsley was spotted by Arsenal scouts and signed for the club’s academy when he was six. All her sacrifices appeared to have paid off when in December 2014 he made his debut for The Gunners aged 17 in the Champions League against Galatasaray.

Four days later he made his Premier League debut in a 4-1 victory over Newcastle United. He said, ‘I want to thank my family and God mostly for putting me here.’

Asked what he would do with his match shirt, he said, ‘I think I’ll frame it and give it to my mum.’

reiss-nelson-arsenal-231017Somewhere down the line, something went wrong. It’s reported that Jule was one of those overbearing sports’ moms fighting for her son’s ability to get what he deserved was even arrested once for clashing with the Arsenal’s chief negotiator Dick Law in 2015, but the police took no action.

Reportedly, another incident took place in 2016 when he joined Ipswich on loan. She was accused of leaving an unpleasant message on manager Mick McCarthy’s voicemail after he wouldn’t let Ainsley attend an England kit launch. A claim she denies.

When Ainsley’s career took off he initially paid the rent so he, Jule and  brother Cordi could live in a three-bedroom home near Arsenal’s training center in Hertfordshire. Ainsley sent his mom on a holiday to Australia in 2016, but she says when she returned she could tell everything was different. Both of her sons were acting strange and they moved out of the house in the middle of the night leaving her alone and giving her 6 months to move. That was probably why he sent her on vacation.

Whether he has been instructed to distance himself from his mom or not, who knows but to leave her homeless isn’t right. A friend of Ainsley’s says he was unaware of his mom’s living condition. Jule doesn’t deny that he offered to send her money, but she says she needs him to help her get a place to live by signing on as the guarantor. Jule, a childcare worker, said she could not find anywhere to rent because she is on a zero-hours contract and her income is irregular.

Her son hasn’t commented yet.

Seems like there have only been two bumps in the road for the two. David allegedly had an affair with Rebecca Loos years ago and another woman Malaysian-born Sarah Marbeck came forward with the same claims. But, Victoria stood by her man.
