'How on earth?' Princes criticised as Kate tackles cobblestones in skyscraper heels

The Duchess of Cambridge looked beautiful in a £1,605 Roland Mouret dress with a stunning asymmetrical neckline. She wore over it a black Catherine Walker coat.
Commenting on Kate’s penchant for high shoes, one wrote: “But one thing about Kate is that she loves heels, remember she rocked them at a royal engagement while pregnant with Prince Louis…”

“Kate needs to drop the tutorial on how she walks on them heels on cobblestones,” one said.

However, others pointed out the fact Kate was walking on cobblestones alongside Harry and William, who trod on the easier to manage path.

One said: “Kate walking in heels on cobblestone while the other two on concrete.”

They feature diamond studs with pearls hanging from chains covered in diamonds.

Fans swooned over images of Kate at the funeral.

The royal was snapped looking directly at the camera as she sat in the back of one of the funeral cars.

Fans have gone mad over the stunning picture, with one social media user saying that she was “born to be a Queen”.

Rafael Nadal criticised for 'salty' Novak Djokovic comment over Roger Federer record

“2nd best tennis player in the history of the sport to say he “doesn’t know what it means” is very unsportsmanlike and also shows lack of intelligence & respect,” a third fan blasted.

Others though were more sympathetic with Nadal’s comments, highlighting the fierce rivalry between the Spaniard, Djokovic and Federer.

“Yeah, not 100% sincere I can tell, but it’s ok. No needed. We understand the rivalry between the big three, even though it’s not fully admitted,” one fan wrote.

“Djokovic’s story is one to look up to. He came from behind and surpassed Nadal and Federer to become in the end the GOAT.”

The Beatles: John Lennon criticised A Hard Day’s Night director – ‘I have wounds’

The Beatles’ first two films, A Hard Day’s Night and Help! were both directed by Lester in the 1960s. Prior to joining the Fab Four on the first film, the director had only shot one 11-minute movie, titled The Running Jumping & Standing Still Film. Speaking at the BFI in 2014, Lester opened up about working with each of the band members and touched upon the issues he had with John Lennon on set.
In A Hard Day’s Night the band ventured through a fictional collection of events that led to them performing a song on a live TV special.

Along the way the band hit a number of fictional problems, including hordes of adoring fans and a troublesome grandfather of Paul McCartney.

Lester spoke candidly about shooting these scenes with Lennon, saying: “John was not known to suffer fools, and I probably fell into the fool category.

“He was always willing to skewer the pomposity around him, and I think there can’t be any more pompous person on a set than the director.

“So, I have wounds. But I have a huge, huge admiration for John.”

Lester added: “I think I can take all his criticisms [as] they were meant in the best possible taste.

“I hope I formed a relationship with all of them. I spent a lot of time with John, I was never less than impressed.”

With a smile he added: “He’s one of the three or four people in my life that shaped me.”

The light-hearted passion project was also a great success for the band.

A Hard Day’s Night was nominated for two Academy Awards that year. One for Best Screenplay and another for Best Score.

McCartney told a different version of the events in 2000’s Beatles Anthology.

He said: “The title was Ringo’s. We’d almost finished making the film, and this fun bit arrived that we’d not known about before, which was naming the film.

“So we were sitting around at Twickenham studios having a little brain-storming session… and we said: ‘Well, there was something Ringo said the other day.’

“Ringo would do these little malapropisms, he would say things slightly wrong, like people do, but his were always wonderful, very lyrical… they were sort of magic even though he was just getting it wrong. And he said after a concert: ‘Phew, it’s been a hard day’s night.’”

The film’s original tentative title for the film was Beatlemania, before A Hard Day’s Night was decided upon.

Once the film’s title was chosen, Lennon wrote the song A Hard Day’s Night in one night. The track was then recorded just eight days before the film was finished.

The songwriter based the song’s lyrics on a birthday card his son, Julian Lennon, had received.

A Hard Day’s Night won a Grammy Award for Best Performance by a Vocal Group.
