Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, appeals to save Africa’s elephants and big cats, saying that “tomorrow will be too late” if no action is taken to save the wildlife. As patron of the Trust Fund, a preservation society, the prince delivered an impassioned speech last April 25 during the film premier of African Cats, a documentary that follows the lives of lions and cheetahs. With William is Kate who wore a grey dress by Matthew Williamson complete with subtle peplum detail and jade green beading trim.
King Edward VIII leaped into financial uncertainty the moment he signed the Instrument of Abdication on December 10, 1936. That same day, Edward, now known as Duke of Windsor, entered into an agreement with his younger brother and successor, King George VI, that secured him £25,000 annually for the rest of his life. However, the King later renounced this agreement and instead offered him a smaller amount which would cease upon the King's death. The condition is that Edward should never step into British soil unless invited by government.
