The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have announced the name of their newborn son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor to the world, with Meghan declaring: “It’s magic, it’s pretty amazing. I have the two best guys in the world so I’m really happy.”

At St George’s Hall St George’s Hall at Windsor Castle, Prince Harry held their two-day-old child where Meghan added: “He has the sweetest temperament, he’s really calm.” As both laughed, Harry said: “I don’t know who he gets that from.”

The 7lb 3oz infant, whose name was announced Wednesday afternoon, is believed to be the first mixed-race child born to a senior member of the royal family in centuries, and is a reflection of modern Britain with its culturally diverse population.


The annual Met Gala took place on Monday, with numerous stars dressing up to the theme of “camp”. The Gala is famed for its A-list celebrities and haute couture gowns.

The theme of Camp: Notes on Fashion was inspired by Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay, in which she describes it as something that shouldn’t be talked about.

“To talk about Camp is therefore to betray it,” Sontag wrote.

Celebrities from the worlds of fashion, film, music and sport converged on the pink carpet in New York to show off their humorous and exaggerated looks.

There was everything from sequins, neon, trains and cape, to a seven-eyed face, a decapitated head and a chandelier.

Here are some of the most notable looks:

6 million of Australia’s new $50 notes have been printed with a typo, the Reserve Bank has confirmed.

The new $50 banknote was rolled out in October last year, with a range of new technologies designed to improve accessibility and prevent counterfeiting.

However, the yellow note also contained a type that misspelled the word “responsibility.” The note features the Indigenous writer and inventor David Unaipon on one side, and Edith Cowan, Australia’s first female member of parliament on the other.

The small error occurred on Cowan’s side, in the text of her speech.

“It is a great responsibilty [sic] to be the only woman here, and I want to emphasise the necessity which exists for other women being here,” it says.

An RBA spokeswoman stated on Thursday that the bank was “aware of it and the spelling will be corrected at the next print run.
