Kate and William’s wedding gift from Queen worth far more than Harry and Meghan’s

The Queen gave the future king Prince William and his wife Kate, Duchess of Cambridge their rural residence Anmer Hall as a wedding gift. The Norfolk country house is in the village of Anmer and was built in 1802. The Queen gave the couple the house as a wedding gift and the stunning Georgian property is the most expensive royal residence belonging to a grandchild of the Monarch.

According to a study that looked at the potential rent royals could charge if they leased their homes out on the private market Anmer Hall could be rented out at £44,000 per calendar month.

Research by rental company UNCLE found a month’s rent of £44,000 per calendar month is £14,570 more than the average UK annual salary.

Anmer has 30 rooms and spans over 4,000 square metres and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their children have used it as their rural base since 2015.

The house was registered as a Grade II listed building in 1984.

Daniel Kaluuya[1], 32, made his Saturday Night Live[2] debut on April 3! The Oscar nominee was scheduled to appear alongside returning performer, Grammy winner St. Vincent[3], 38. Following the cold open, Daniel made made a poignant statement in his opening monologue. “I’m sure you can hear the accent,” The British-born actor said. “‘Oh no, he’s not Black. He’s British.’ Let reassure you that I am Black and I’m British. Basically, I’m what the Royal Family was worried the baby would look like,” he quipped — referencing Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s son Archie, 1.

“People ask me what’s worse: British racism or American racism?” Daniel — clad in a navy blue outfit with bright orange piping — went on. “Let put it this way: British racism is so bad, white people left. They wanted to be free to create their own racisms. So that’s why invaded Australia, South Africa — and Boston,” he joked. He also shared a bit about his own family, who hails from  Uganda. “My dad is one of 22 kids and my dad is one of 49…they say Black don’t crack, but condoms do,” he also joked, noting his aunt was in the audience.

The appearance was a huge deal for Daniel, who just scored his second Oscar nomination[6] in the Best Supporting Actor category for Judas and the Black Messiah. In the film, Daniel plays the late Fredrick Allen Hampton, who was an activist who came to prominence as the chairman of the Illinois chapter of the Black Panther Party. After being identified as a radical threat by the FBI, he was assassinated. “Chairman Fred Hampton was a light, a beacon of a being who would illuminate all he touched with his incredible message. With the ability to command any stage and robbed of his opportunity to captivate a global audience,” the British born actor said to CNN in reaction to the nomination. “Today, I am humbled to be nominated for portraying a man whose principles I deeply respect and for guiding me to walk in his footsteps,” he went on.

“I became a vessel for Chairman Fred’s spirit at a time when we need his rally cry for equality and justice more than ever. I commend my fellow nominees for their impressive work. To be seen and celebrated by my peers in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences is beautifully humbling and I am deeply grateful,” he added, referencing the historic Black Lives Matter movement. He also earned a Best Actor nod in 2018 for Jordan Peele‘s Get Out.[7][8]

Prince Harry and Meghan’s bombshell interview mocked by Jonathan Ross in triple swipe

Presenter Jonathan Ross, 60, joked about Prince Harry, 36, and Meghan Markle, 39, stepping back from the Royal Family and their interview with Oprah Winfrey, 67, as he opened the socially-distanced award ceremony this evening. He began by welcoming viewers virtually to the Royal Television Society Programme Awards 2021, presenting in partnership with Audio Network.
“Yes, unlike some, the RTS is keeping its royal title,” he joked.

He went on to tell viewers the team pretended to be key workers to book a boardroom at the Grosvenor House for the ceremony.

“I signed in as a bin man and no one questioned it,” he added.

The presenter continued to poke fun at Chancellor Rishi Sunak and Gordon Ramsay.

He added: “It’s absolutely right to go ahead with this awards show.

“Let’s face it, the television industry has kept us all going during lockdown, that’s why tonight, unlike Rishi Sunak, I will be giving everyone universal credit.

“Everyone except Gordon Ramsay’s bank balance, which may still have a bit of work to do.”

In a further swipe at Meghan and Harry, the chat show host continued: “TV has actually brought families back together, well apart from one glaring exception when TV has had the opposite effect.”

Jonathan’s references to the royals come after Meghan and Harry’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.

During their chat, Meghan and Harry discussed their life in the Royal Family from their point of view.

At first, the Duchess of Sussex was interviewed alone before she was joined by her spouse.

The former Suits actress said she felt suicidal during her time in the family and, at one point, feared to be left alone.

She added she approached members of staff for help, but claimed she was told she couldn’t receive any.

Meghan and Harry also said an unnamed family member expressed concerns about the colour of their son Archie’s skin.

When quizzed further by Oprah, Prince Harry said he will never reveal who it was who started such discussion.

It’s not the first time the couple have been at the centre of a joke this month.

Grammy Awards 2021 host comedian Trevor Noah began this year’s ceremony telling viewers the event was socially-distanced due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

He then pointed to the masked nominees, who were seated apart, and said there is “more tension in that tent than at a family reunion at Buckingham Palace”.

His joke came exactly a week after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s interview with Oprah aired in the US.
