‘Deep rapport’: Rare glimpse at Kate Middleton’s relationship with dad Michael – ‘genuine’

Kate and her father looked happy as they watched tennis together at Wimbledon. The Duchess often attends the sport event with her husband Prince William or sister Pippa.

Body language expert Darren Stanton, also known as “the human lie detector”, analysed the images of the Duchess and her father for Express.co.uk.

The pair attended day 13 of the Wimbledon 2021 Championships.

Kate Middleton’s father, Michael Middleton, was born in Leeds and attended university in Surrey.

He started his career as a flight dispatcher, someone who plans flight paths.

Later he and his wife, Carole, founded Party Pieces, a party supply company.

He went on: “However, it’s clear that everybody is thoroughly enjoying being in Wimbledon and the surroundings.”

The expert commented on the rare photos of Kate sat with her father Michael, who worked as groundcrew for BA when he met her mother, also a member of the ground crew.

The images show “Kate leaning in clearly sharing a moment or passing comment”, Darren claims.

He said: “The fact she’s leaning in denotes that she has a great relationship with him and it’s in deep rapport.”

She wore a chic dress from Beulah London, which cost £695.

The stunning chic crepe pink midi dress featured a Mandarin collar and a wide belt.

Kate paired the look with a pair of nude heels – thought to be the Nicholes court shoes from Aldo.

She carried the Josef beaded flap clutch bag.

Kate’s father Michael has two other children. They are Pippa Middleton, who is married to billionaire James Matthews, and James Middleton.

OHCHR voices deep concern over reported deaths of protesters in Kingdom of Eswatini

The eruption of violence in the Kingdom of Eswatini in recent days is “deeply concerning”, amid reports that dozens of people have been killed or injured during protests calling for democratic reforms, the UN human rights office, OHCHR, said on Tuesday.

Unrest first began in the last absolute monarchy in Africa, in May, when students took to the streets to call for accountability for the death of a 25-year-old law student, allegedly at the hands of the police.

In late June, these protests grew into daily pro-democracy marches in several locations around the Kingdom, with protesters voicing deep-seated political and economic grievances, said OHCHR, in the regular briefing for reporters at the UN in Geneva.

Eswatini, formerly known as Swaziland, gained independence 53 years ago, and is ruled by King Mswati III. He chooses the prime minister and cabinet, and has the power to dissolve Parliament.

‘Unnecessary’ use of force

OHCHR Spokesperson Liz Throssell, said her office had received allegations of “disproportionate and unnecessary use of force”, harassment and intimidation by security forces, including the use of live ammunition by police.

She urged the authorities in Eswatini to “fully adhere to human rights principles in restoring calm and the rule of law, in particular the obligation to minimise any use of force.

“We also call on the Government to ensure that there are prompt, transparent, effective, independent and impartial investigations into all allegations of human rights violations”, she added, “including those by law enforcement personnel in the context of the demonstrations, and that those responsible are held to account.”

She reminded authorities that peaceful protests are protected under international human rights law, “including under Article 21 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, to which the Kingdom of Eswatini is a State Party.”

Internet blocked

The OHCHR Spokesperson also expressed concern at reports that Internet services were disrupted last week and called on authorities “to take all steps to ensure that Internet access is not blocked.”

Ms. Throssell urged the Government of the Kingdom “to open up a longer-term dialogue to air and address the underlying public concerns that have given rise to these recent protests.

“We remain committed to working with the Government of Eswatini to strengthen human rights promotion and protection, including support and guidance in implementing recommendations by UN human rights mechanisms, including guaranteeing the rights to freedom of expression, of peaceful assembly and to freedom of association, as well as the right of people to participate in the conduct of public affairs.”

Deep vein thrombosis: The seven major symptoms which should not be ignored

Experts warn that up to half of people with DVT will have long-term complications because of damage to the leg vein which has blood remaining there for too long.

A person may notice pain, swelling, and redness, which can lead to open sores if it’s not treated early.

The biggest worry for a blood clot is a DVT that breaks off and causes a pulmonary embolism, warns WebMD.

The health site added: “If the clot isn’t too big and you get the right treatment fast enough, you may recover from this, though there may be some long-term lung damage.”

Led Zeppelin crowned Greatest Guitar Riff of All Time beating AC/DC, Ozzy and Deep Purple

Led Zeppelin exploded onto the scene in 1969 with their eponymous debut album. It was swiftly followed the same year by Led Zeppelin II. No need for fancy album titles (or, indeed, single releases) the London foursome let their music do the talking. From the start, the band had negociated remarkable freedom with their record label, allowing Page to take full control over the production side, as well as writing most of the music on the earlier albums, with Robert Plant on lyrics. But the guitarist is also regarded as one of the greatest musicians of all time and his artistry is being celebrated again this week.

A new poll from the readers of Guitar World and Total Guitar has selected the 50 greatest rock guitar riffs of all time.

Van Halen’s Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love is in fifth, Deep Purple’s Smoke on the Water in fourth, AC/DC’s Back in Black is third with Randy Roads’ legendary riff from Ozzy Osbourne’s Crazy Train in second place.

But it’s not the first and it won’t be the last time that Led Zeppelin’s iconic Whole Lotta Love takes the crown.

Fifty years later and the 1969 track remains as fresh and fiercely influencial as ever. Just look at the faces of Jack White and U2’s Edge as Page takes them through that iconic solo in the video below.

Page said: “I came up with the guitar riff for Whole Lotta Love in the summer of ’68, on my houseboat along the Thames in Pangbourne, England. I suppose my early love for big intros by rockabilly guitarists was an inspiration, but as soon as I developed the riff, I knew it was strong enough to drive the entire song, not just open it.

“When I played the riff for the band in my living room several weeks later during rehearsals for our first album, the excitement was immediate and collective. We felt the riff was addictive, like a forbidden thing.”

The guitarist also revealed how added his playing inspired frontman Robert Plant to greater heights.

Page said: “Robert’s vocal was just as extreme. He kept gaining confidence during the session and gave it everything he had. His vocals, like my solos, were about performance. He was pushing to see what he could get out of his voice. We were performing for each other, almost competitively.”

And Page has acknowledged how important the band’s creative freedom was in their evolution: “None of that might’ve happened if I had an outside producer. They might’ve questioned, or not understood, what I was doing, or thought I was just making a bunch of noise. I was able to make sure our ideas were carried out without interference.”

Queen 'optimistic and focused as ever' despite deep sorrow at Philip's death – expert

Judi told Express.co.uk: “Comparing the pose of the young woman sitting on the coronation throne sixty-nine years ago to the woman sitting alone and bowed with grief at her husband’s funeral this year suggest a contrast between anticipation and even trepidation about her future versus a quiet and sad reflection about her past.

“But in body language terms that is far from being the real story.”

Commenting on pictures from the Queen’s coronation, Judi said: “With her small stature, her very girlish vocal tone and with that huge, heavy crown carefully balanced on her head, the Queen could have appeared vulnerable and anxious at her unexpectedly early crowning.

“Sitting staring forward on the throne though there were early signs of a determination and focus though, hinting at the same stoicism and almost stubborn sense of doing her duty as we can see so strongly today.”
