The Royal Wedding
Exclusive Collectors’ Edition Part 1

The British Guide to the Royal Event of 2018

We are all looking forward to the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on Saturday 19th May. And we will be producing two amazing picture-packed specials to
celebrate the Royal Event of 2018!
The first of these will be available before the wedding and will answer all your questions about what will be happening on the big day – including who the Best Man, Bridesmaids and Page Boys will be, who will be on the VIP guest list, what the arrangements will be for the reception… and even where Prince Harry and Meghan will be holding their Hen and
Stag Nights!
Of course we already know that the ceremony will be held inside St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, which may not be as famous as Westminster Abbey but has hosted Royal weddings for centuries – most recently the ceremony for Prince Harry’s father Prince
Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall back in 2005.
It is not only the final resting place for Monarchs including Henry VIII and Charles I – but also Prince Harry’s great-grandmother, the Queen Mother, whom he adored. Prince Harry was also Christened there.
So, whilst we already know the day and the place, the other questions we know you will want answered are all in the first of our Royal Wedding specials, on sale six weeks before the event itself. All the pomp and pageantry of the Royal Wedding itself will be on display in our second special Royal Wedding edition, so be sure to pick up both and make your
Royal Collection complete!

Win One of Five Copies Of Henry III

WIN A COPY OF HENRY III: THE GREAT KING ENGLAND NEVER KNEW IT HAD

Henry III is generally classed among the weakest and most incompetent of England’s medieval kings, but author Darren Baker tells a different story in this fascinating new book from The History Press.

Darren uses the rich evidence of the king’s statements and actions, recorded day by day, to convey the hopes and feelings of the man himself. The result is an unforgettable portrait that allows every reader of this book to come away with a deeper understanding of medieval kingship and the determination of one king in particular to survive and save his dynasty in very difficult political circumstances. Henry III (1207–72) reigned for 56 years, the longest-serving English monarch until the modern era. Although knighted by William Marshal, he was no warrior king like his uncle Richard the Lionheart. He preferred to feed the poor to making war and would rather spend time with his wife and children than dally with mistresses and lord over roundtables. He sought to replace the dull projection of power imported by his Norman predecessors with a more humane and open-hearted monarchy. But his ambition led him to embark on bold foreign policy initiatives to win back the lands and prestige lost by his father King John.

This set him at odds with his increasingly insular barons and clergy, now emboldened by the protections of Magna Carta. In one of the great political duels of history, Henry struggled to retain the power and authority of the crown against radical reformers like Simon de Montfort. He emerged victorious, but at a cost both to the kingdom and his reputation among historians. Yet his long rule also saw extraordinary advancements in politics and the arts, from the rise of the parliamentary state and universities to the great cathedrals of the land, including Henry’s own enduring achievement, Westminster Abbey.

We have five copies of this superb new book to give away to Royal Life readers!

All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning one is answer this simple question:

Who was Henry III the eldest son of?

A: King Charles I
B: King John
C: King Henry II

PRINCE HARRY AND MS. MEGHAN MARKLE TO ATTEND
ENDEAVOUR FUND AWARDS CEREMONY

London

Thursday 1st February, 2018

Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle will attend the annual Endeavour Fund Awards at
Goldsmiths’ Hall on Thursday 1st February. His Royal Highness and Ms. Markle will celebrate the achievements of wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women who have taken part in remarkable sporting and adventure challenges over the last year.

The Royal Foundation’s Endeavour Fund supports the ambitions of these men and women
to use challenges to help with their physical, psychological and social recovery and
rehabilitation.

Prince Harry and Ms. Markle will first attend a pre-ceremony reception where they will
meet the inspiring nominees, as well as endeavour participants and key supporters of the
Endeavour Fund. They will then attend the awards ceremony, where three prizes will be
awarded:

  • The Recognising Achievement Award – awarded to the individual who has best
    utilised their endeavour to promote and catalyse their recovery
  • The Celebrating Excellence Award – awarded to the individual who has endeavoured
    to achieve excellence in their chosen sport or adventure challenge
  • The Henry Worsley Award – awarded to the individual who has best inspired others
    through the demonstration of determination in the face of adversity, whilst
    endeavouring to support others with their recovery through sport or adventure
    challenge.

The Henry Worsley Award is named after the late Henry Worsley, who tragically lost his life
in January 2016 whilst attempting to cross the Antarctic landmass, solo and unsupported.
Henry, a career soldier and an experienced polar adventurer, undertook this incredible
expedition in order to raise money for the Endeavour Fund.

The Endeavour Fund is a project led by The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of
Cambridge and Prince Harry. The fund plays an important role in ensuring that more servicemen and women have the opportunity to rediscover their self-belief and fighting
spirit through physical challenges. It aims to target those that are hard to reach and to
support activities that contribute to the participants’ recovery – either through mentorship,
qualifications or work opportunities.

Since its launch in 2012, the Endeavour Fund has supported 66 different projects that have
directly assisted over 2,265 WIS. Through their own fundraising, these endeavours have
collectively raised over £2.5million for other forces charities across the sector.

Rewiring Buckingham Palace

0

This short film shows the work being done to remove ageing and potentially dangerous electrical cabling from Buckingham Palace. So far, some 2km of Vulcanised Indian Rubber (VIR) cabling has been replaced – equivalent to the length of 40 Olympic sized swimming pools. Installed in the late 1940s, VIR becomes brittle with age and poses a fire risk.

Removing the oldest electrical wiring is the first stage of a comprehensive Reservicing of Buckingham Palace. As set out in the Royal Trustees’ Report of November 2016, elements of the Palace’s plumbing, electrical cabling and heating have not been updated since shortly after the Second World War. These services are now in urgent need of a complete overhaul to prevent long-term damage to the building and its contents.

THE DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE WILL VISIT KING’S COLLEGE LONDON AND THE SOUTH LONDON AND MAUDSLEY NHS TRUST

London

Wednesday, 24th January 2018

The Duchess of Cambridge will visit The Maurice Wohl Clinical Neuroscience Institute, at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN), King’s College London, and the Perinatal Service at Bethlem Royal Hospital, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust on Wednesday 24 January.

The Duchess is keen to continue developing an understanding of the challenges and issues surrounding maternal mental health, to learn what support is available, and to hear at first-
hand about the science underpinning our understanding of the biological influences on maternal mental health. At least 20 percent of women are affected by mental health
problems during pregnancy or in the first year following the birth of a child. If left
untreated, it can have significant and long-lasting effects on the woman and her family.

The Maurice Wohl Clinical Neuroscience Institute is one of Europe’s largest centres for
interdisciplinary neuroscience excellence. The Institute brings together 250 clinicians and
scientists from many disciplines to develop new therapies for neurological and psychiatric
disorders through innovative research. It is part of the IoPPN at King’s, which is world
renowned for its academic and clinical research and education in mental health and
neuroscience.

Her Royal Highness will visit the Institute’s laboratory to receive a briefing on its work in
perinatal research before meeting with senior academics conducting research in perinatal
psychiatry.

The Duchess will then visit the Mother and Baby Unit at the Bethlem Royal Hospital, part of
South London Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust. The unit specialises in the treatment of antenatal and postnatal mental health illnesses including postnatal depression and post-
partum psychosis. The integrated inpatient clinical service allows mothers who face mental health challenges to be admitted with their babies, to minimise the disruption of mother-
infant relationship. The holistic treatment programme offered supports the mother in developing a relationship with her infant in order to reduce the impact of the mother’s
illness on the child. All patients are supported by psychiatrists, psychologists, mental health
nurses, nursery nurses, midwives and other professionals.

Her Royal Highness will have the chance to visit the Unit’s nursery area and meet with
several patients who are currently undergoing treatment. The Duchess will also visit the
Video Therapy room where she will be shown videos of mother-baby interaction used as
therapeutic tool in the Unit. Before departure, The Duchess will meet professionals involved
in perinatal mental health care, including community nurses, midwives and health visitors.

THE DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE TO LAUNCH PROGRAMME TO SUPPORT CHILDREN’S MENTAL HEALTH AT SCHOOL

Roe Green Junior School, Brent, London

Tuesday 23rd January, 2018

The Duchess of Cambridge is to launch a new mental health project for young children, in
the latest initiative from the Heads Together campaign.

The Duchess of Cambridge will visit Roe Green Junior School on Tuesday 23rd January,
where she will meet with pupils and teachers, and take part in a lesson designed to help
support a child’s mental health and well-being.

Her Royal Highness will then make a speech to invited guests and campaigners, where the
details of the project will be unveiled.

Building on the success of the Heads Together campaign, The Duke and Duchess of
Cambridge and Prince Harry are each driving forward a series of programmes to ensure
people can get access to the right help, at the right place and at the right time.

For The Duchess of Cambridge, supporting young people was always at the heart of Heads
Together, and is a key focus of Her Royal Highness’s work at The Royal Foundation.

One in five children will experience a mental health difficulty at least once before the age of
11, and many adults with mental health issues can trace their symptoms back to childhood.
In many cases, it is known that children can wait up to 10 years before effective diagnosis or treatment.

Coordinated and financed by The Royal Foundation, this project has been developed by the
youth-focussed charity partners of Heads Together; the Anna Freud National Centre for
Children and Families, Place2Be and Young Minds. NAHT, the school leaders’ association,
has been engaged in developing the initiative with guidance from Centre for Mental Health.

The formal launch event will also be attended by the Minister for Schools, Nick Gibb, and
will include speeches from Simon Marshall (Director of Educational Services at Together for Children Sunderland) and Julie Greer, Head Teacher at Cherbourg Primary School, which is
taking part in the pilot of the project, as well as a performance from pupils from Roe Green.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will visit Poland and Germany

A statement from the Communications Secretary to The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will undertake an official tour to Sweden and Norway between Tuesday 30th January and Friday 2nd February. This visit is at the request of The Foreign and Commonwealth Office, and will be Their Royal Highnesses’ first official visits to the two countries.

During the tour, The Duke and Duchess will be welcomed to Sweden and Norway by the respective Royal Families of each country. Their Royal Highnesses have been invited by Their Majesties King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden to a special luncheon at the Royal Palace of Stockholm, and in Norway will join Their Majesties King Harald V and Queen Sonja at Oslo’s Royal Palace for an official dinner. The Duke and Duchess also look forward to spending time with Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel of Sweden, and Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway, who will join Their Royal Highnesses on a number of their engagements throughout the visit.

The Duke and Duchess have asked, as with previous overseas visits, that this tour allow them opportunities to meet as many Swedes and Norwegians as possible. Their Royal Highnesses will meet a wide variety of people, including children and young people, those working in the mental health sector, and leaders in business, academia and scientific research, government, civil society and the creative industries.

The tour will also take in the beautiful settings of both Stockholm and Oslo, and The Duke and Duchess are looking forward to exploring these two cities for the first time. Their Royal Highnesses will wander through the cobbled streets of Stockholm en route to the iconic Stortorget square; they will take in the lit up skyline from the Fotografiska Galleries, and they will visit the ski jump Holmenkollen, one of Norway’s most iconic landmarks, which boasts dramatic views over the city of Oslo.

The four day tour will also include time learning more about what makes Scandinavian culture so unique, from attitudes towards young people and mental health in schools, to the importance of being active and spending time outdoors, whatever the temperature may be. The Duke and Duchess are keen to experience a taste of the Scandinavian way of life for themselves, and to see how people of all generations battle the elements to make the most of their surroundings, whether ice-skating in Stockholm’s local parks, or skiing off-piste in the hills that surround Oslo.

The UK’s links with each country are extensive, and Their Royal Highnesses are looking forward to building a lasting friendship with the people of both Sweden and Norway.

Day one of the tour will begin on Tuesday morning in Stockholm, at a bandy hockey event at Vasaparken, an outdoor ice-skating venue in the centre of Stockholm. The Duke and Duchess will arrive at the rink from the Residence of the British Ambassador to Sweden, where Their Royal Highnesses will have stayed the night before. The Duke and Duchess will meet a group of local bandy players on the ice, and learn more about the sport and its popularity in Sweden.

Next, The Duke and Duchess will travel to the Royal Palace of Stockholm to attend a luncheon hosted by King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia to welcome Their Royal Highnesses to Sweden. Approximately fifteen members of the Swedish Royal Court will attend the luncheon, including Crown Princess Victoria and her husband Prince Daniel.

Following the luncheon, The Duke and Duchess, accompanied by Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel, will walk through the picturesque cobbled streets of Stockholm from the Royal Palace to the Nobel Museum. During this walk, Their Royal Highnesses will have an opportunity to meet members of the Swedish public that will have assembled in Stortorget, the oldest square in Stockholm, and a charming public space outside the Nobel Museum. Once inside the Museum, Their Royal Highnesses will meet a number of Nobel Laureates, and will hear more from the Museum’s curator about Science in Sweden and the Nobel Laureate system.

From the Nobel Museum, The Duke and Duchess will travel to Ark Des, Sweden’s national centre for architecture and design. Here, Their Royal Highnesses will attend an event celebrating architectural collaboration and the best of Swedish design, from the most iconic and global furniture brands, to up-and-coming homeware designers with new takes on sustainable furnishings.

That evening, The Duke and Duchess will attend a black tie dinner at the Residence of the British Ambassador, attended by members of the Swedish Royal Family, and representatives from government, and popular culture, including Prime Minister Stefan Löfven, and actors Stellan Skarsgård and Alicia Vikander.

The morning of Day two will focus on Sweden’s pioneering work in the field of mental health and children’s wellbeing, and in particular how this translates into support for children and young teenagers going through the Swedish education system.

Their Royal Highnesses, accompanied by Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel, will begin the morning at the world famous Karolinska Institute, which accounts for over 40 per cent of the medical academic research conducted in Sweden. The Duke and Duchess will meet with leading scientific researchers and practitioners to discuss ground-breaking academic work in developmental psychology, and Sweden’s approach to managing mental health challenges, including the impact of physical activity on mental health. Their Royal Highnesses will also hear about the Youth Aware of Mental Health (YAM) programme run by the National Association for Suicide Research and Prevention of Mental Ill Health (NASP). YAM is a programme run for 14 – 16 year olds promoting increased knowledge about mental health through dialogue and role-play, and now operates internationally, including in the UK.

The Duke and Duchess and Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel will then head to Matteusskolan, a comprehensive school in the heart of the city centre. Their Royal Highnesses will join children who have taken part in the YAM programme during one of their mental health activity sessions, and will speak to the mentors who run the training.

That afternoon, the two Royal couples will visit one of Sweden’s leading department stores – NK – to open an interactive exhibition of UK design, fashion and brands that operate in Sweden. The Duke and Duchess will learn how these brands in particular put innovation, technology and sustainable practices at the forefront of their businesses. The event will take place in NK’s entrance hall, and for the duration of the exhibition the best of British brands will feature in the display windows of the store.

From NK, Their Royal Highnesses will travel to Haga Palace, Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel’s official residence, for a private tea with the Royal couple.

On their last evening in Stockholm, The Duke and Duchess will attend an event at the Fotografiska Gallery, which at night boasts glittering views over Stockholm. The event will be a celebration of contemporary culture with guests representing the worlds of music, film, television, theatre, tech, dance, art and sport, with live music, drinks and canapés. The Duke will also deliver a speech at this event. Weather permitting, Their Royal Highnesses will travel to Fotografiska by boat, allowing The Duke and Duchess to take in the views of Stockholm by night as they pass around the harbour. Prior to joining the reception, the Royal couple will have a short tour of the gallery’s latest exhibition by UK photographer Nick Veasey.

The following morning, Their Royal Highnesses will depart Sweden for Norway from Uppsala Airbase. Prior to their departure, The Duke and Duchess will receive a short briefing on the Swedish Armed Forces’ operational capabilities, before viewing some of the Gripen aircraft of the type deployed by Sweden as its commitment to the Joint Expeditionary Force.

The Duke and Duchess will land in Norway at Oslo Gardermoen Airport in the late morning, where they will be met by Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit. From there, Their Royal Highnesses will travel directly to the Royal Palace, where The Duke and Duchess will stay at the invitation of King Harald and Queen Sonja.

On arrival at the Royal Palace, The Duke and Duchess will be officially welcomed to Norway by The King and Queen by way of a luncheon, which will also be attended by other members of The Royal Family. Following this, Their Royal Highnesses will visit the Princess Ingrid Alexandra Sculpture Park within the Palace Gardens, which opened last year in the name of Princess Ingrid Alexandra to mark the 25th anniversary of The King’s reign. The sculptures, of which there are now four, are designed by and for children, through cartoon competitions in schools across the country. During this visit, The Duke and Duchess will have the opportunity to meet members of the public gathered in the park.

Later that afternoon, The Duke and Duchess, accompanied by Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit, will attend an event held at MESH, a co-working space for entrepreneurs and start-up companies to grow their businesses and thrive in a creative environment. Encouraging entrepreneurship and innovation are high priorities for Norway and the UK, with plenty of exciting collaboration across the North Sea. Their Royal Highnesses will meet a number of Norwegian and UK companies based at MESH showcasing their work, and will see how some start-ups are tackling issues such as the environment, and mental health and wellbeing, in new and engaging ways.

That evening, The Duke and Duchess have been invited by Their Majesties to an official dinner in their honour at the Royal Palace. The dinner will be attended by members of government, leaders in business and those from the Norwegian creative industries. There will also be serving members and veterans from the Norwegian Armed Forces, who will be introduced to Their Royal Highnesses. Both King Harald and The Duke will speak at the dinner.

The final day of the tour will begin at the Hartvig Nissen School, which was the location for the hugely successful Norwegian television programme ‘Skam’. Skam is a drama series highlighting teenagers and the challenges young people can experience growing up, such as identity issues, bullying, relationships, sexual assault, and eating disorders. Following on from the theme lines of the show, the characters started their own social media profiles to engage with the audience watching directly, creating an international following and fan base. At the school, Their Royal Highnesses will meet the stars and producers of Skam to hear more about the series, and will then meet students to learn about the effect Skam had on bringing these issues out into the open, and the role played by social media.

Later that morning, The Duke and Duchess will travel to Skaugum, the official residence of The Crown Prince and Princess of Norway, for a private lunch.

The final engagements of the tour will take place in the beautiful setting of Holmenkollen, the snowy hills that overlook the city of Oslo. Here, Their Royal Highnesses, accompanied by The Crown Prince and Princess, will see how Norwegians embrace the outdoors in the coldest of temperatures, and champion the importance of exercise and wellbeing.

The Duke and Duchess will firstly visit Holmenkollen’s most iconic landmark – the Holmenkollen Ski Jump. With panoramic views over the city, the ski jump is truly impressive in its size, and has capacity for more than 70,000 spectators. Here, Their Royal Highnesses will walk through the Holmenkollen ski museum and then watch a demonstration from some of Norway’s top under-18 ski jumpers, before meeting them at the top of the ski jump. No country has won more Winter Olympics medals than Norway, and as excitement builds around the forthcoming Games in South Korea, Their Royal Highnesses are looking forward to learning more about how the Norwegians have maintained this record.

The Duke and Duchess will then attend an event organised by the Norwegian Ski Federation, at which Their Royal Highnesses will see a group of local nursery children taking part in an afternoon ski school session on the slopes. The Duke and Duchess will join children taking part in a number of outdoors activities, from experiencing Sami tents, to roasting sausages on an open fire. Their Royal Highnesses will also speak to some of the ski instructors that deliver sessions throughout the year to keep children active and engaged with sport as well as visit the adjoining nursey.

From Holmenkollen, The Duke and Duchess will depart for the airport, and on to London.
