Everything You Need to Know About the Amazing Royal Family Photo on the Buckingham Palace Balcony -
News,Royal News,Trooping the Colour The entire royal family gathered on to the balcony of Buckingham Palace on Saturday for the ultimate photo op. Queen Elizabeth was joined by Prince Philip, Prince Charles, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Harry and the newest royal family member, Meghan Markle. Several other royal family members, including scene-stealer Savannah Phillip, Princess Beatrice and Princess Anne, also stood on the balcony. The royal tradition of the balcony appearance began with Queen Victoria, who decided to greet her subjects from the balcony during the opening celebrations of the Great Exhibition in 1851. The tradition is carried out each year during the Trooping the Colour celebrations, which is in honor of the Monarch’s official birthday. The Queen typically stands in the center of the balcony, surrounded by her family members. This year marks Meghan’s first balcony appearance. Kate made her debut on her wedding day to Prince William. The then newlyweds famously kissed (twice!) as the crowds cheered below them. George and Charlotte are old pros at the balcony wave — this year is Charlotte’s third appearance. Their younger brother, Prince Louis, will have to wait another year before he makes his debut.
I just cannot watch it on BBC, that Huw Edwards just loves the sound of his voice and never shuts up... People want to watch this spectacle of "Trooping the Colour" and listen to the wonderful music without him yap yap yapping. The BBC should broadcast it on BBC 2 as well with no commentary
Patients taking Viagra are less likely to suffer a heart attack, new research claims.
Men taking the impotence drug were found to have a lower risk of having a heart attack or dying from heart failure than those not on the medication.
The findings mean Viagra could soon be used to treat hundreds of thousands of heart failure patients and even prevent fatal heart attacks, scientists say.
Experts from the University of Manchester studied 6,000 diabetic patients who had been given Viagra to treat erectile dysfunction.
The drug relaxes muscle cells in the blood vessels supplying the penis, allowing more blood to flow there.
This increased blood flow increases the likelihood of getting an erection.
Given the increasing reports of deaths in which the use of Viagra may be implicated, clinicians need to exercise caution when advising their patients with heart
Experts believe a key ingredient in Viagra called PDE5i, which relaxes blood vessels, also prevents damage to heart cells.
Heart failure is caused by the heart failing to pump enough blood around the body at the right pressure.
It most often occurs because the heart muscle has become too weak or stiff to work properly and is usually treated with medication which supports the heart.
Despite diabetics being prone to heart problems, the study participants did not suffer as many incidents as similar patients not on the drug.
