Zara Tindall's's secret little nephew

His arrival last month delighted first-time parents Felicity (main picture) and Tristan (top right) Wade who, as is the custom these days, published a happy family portrait online, and were duly inundated with good wishes from friends and family. Or most of them, at least. Adorable as he might be, newborn James Wade (pictured with his parents inset right) can expect little acknowledgement from his impeccably well-connected aunt, Zara Tindall (pictured bottom left with daughter Mia), nor from her brother Peter Phillips. And, sadly, he can expect none at all from his own grandfather, Captain Mark Phillips (top left), the former husband of Princess Anne. It is not even clear he knows that James exists. For the baby's birth just a few weeks ago is a reminder of one of the greatest scandals to have rocked the Royal Family - a story not just of illicit sex and illegitimacy, but of a disgraceful attempt to silence a vulnerable woman. Felicity is Mark Phillips' lovechild, conceived after a one-night stand with New Zealand art teacher Heather Tonkin (pictured bottom right with Felicity as a child) in an Auckland hotel room in 1984 while Phillips was still married to the Princess.

Philip's four-letter fury over Diana: How Duke bellowed at Blair spin doctors 'f*** off' when they pressed for Princes to walk behind mother's funeral cortege 

The 'anguished' Duke reportedly told No 10 officials to 'f*** off' after it was suggested the princes should walk behind Diana's coffin - and he was backed by the Queen. The exchange came during a telephone conference call between Buckingham Palace, where Mr Blair's team, including spin doctor Alastair Campbell, had met Royal aides, and Balmoral, where the Queen and Prince Philip were staying with William and Harry.

Bruce leaves £17million to wife

Bruce Forsyth has left all of his £17million estate to his wife to avoid it being gobbled up by the taxman, according to a friend. No inheritance tax is due when a fortune is passed to a spouse or civil partner instead of children. Once the fortune is transferred, Bruce's third wife former Miss World Wilnelia (pictured with Sir Bruce at home in Wentworth) can then give up to £650,000 to each of Sir Bruce's relatives tax free.

JIMMY TARBUCK gives moving insight into Bruce's final days

Outside, the sun was shining, but his illness kept Bruce indoors, and we chatted in a spacious bedroom suite overlooking Wentworth Golf Course. Light, bright and Grecian with pillars, and a statue of a goddess in the garden outside, it was a beautiful space. But it was comfortable, too, with couches, pretty curtains and a very large bed.

Father of missing Julian Cadman, 7, arrives in Spain

Hopes faded for a seven-year-old British boy lost in the Barcelona terror attack when his father arrived in the city this evening and was taken to a forensic centre. Julian Cadman was separated from his mother Jumarie when a terrorist rammed a van into pedestrians on Las Ramblas killing 14 on Thursday. His father Andrew was tonight escorted by police to the forensic institute which includes a mortuary when he arrived from his home in Sydney, Australia. Police have not confirmed Julian's condition but earlier tweeted: 'Neither were we searching nor have we found any lost child in the Barcelona attack. All the victims and injured have been located.'

'I don't want to wake up without him next to me': Heartbroken wife of US man killed by Barcelona terrorist reveals he stepped away for bathroom break while at cafe on their honeymoon when he was run down 

Heidi Nunes-Tucker, 40, (pictured) has spoken out for the first time since her husband of one year Jared Tucker, 43, (inset right) died in the Barcelona terrorist attack on Thursday. Heidi spoke with NBC News in an interview that aired on Saturday. Heidi and Jared, a father to three teenage daughters and a stepson, were on their first trip to Europe to celebrate their one year wedding anniversary. They had been toasting their year of marriage at a street cafe in the Las Ramblas district just moments before the terror attack in Barcelona on Thursday. Heidi said that no more than a minute after Jared stepped away to find a bathroom, 'all mayhem broke out'. Terrorists responsible killed 14 people and wounded over a hundred after a van plowed through crowds traveling at a rate of up to 60 mph. The 17-year-old Moroccan man operating the vehicle, Moussa Oukabir, was shot dead by police in Cambrils Friday following the event. Jared was the only American fatality in the attack. He was not initially listed as a victim in the hospitals nearby the scene of the attack. He was pronounced dead on Friday, when he and Heidi had planned to jet back home from their first trip to Europe.

Barcelona’s chief rabbi urges Jews to move to Israel

Barcelona's chief rabbi Meir Bar-Hen has urged Jews to move to Israel after warning that Europe has been 'lost' because of the threat from radical Islam. At least 14 people were killed and some 130 others injured when attackers in a van (pictured) ploughed into pedestrians on a promenade in the tourist area on Thursday evening. ISIS has claimed responsibility for the Barcelona outrage and another attack in Cambrils yesterday, which resulted in one person dying and seven people being injured after five men wearing fake suicide belts drove an Audi A3 into crowds on the seafront. Western Europe has been a regular target for jihadists over the last few years. And rabbi Bar-Hen (inset) told his congregation to move to Israel to flee terror.

The couple shook hand with doctors and nurses in the Mar de Barcelona hospital and spoke to some of the 130 people who were injured in Thursday's atrocity on the Las Ramblas boulevard.

Paul O'Grady, 62, 'secretly marries ballet dancer partner'

They kept the wedding to just their closest family and friends and had a big lunch afterwards to celebrate.'

Former SeaWorld trainer lifts lid after three whales die

John Hargrove, a SeaWorld expert turned whistleblower, explains the horrific conditions the San Diego park keeps their giant orca whales in, calling what goes on 'an abomination'. In January, an orca called Tilikum, notorious for killing his female trainer, died after a long battle with a lung infection. Then last month, Kyara, a three-month-old orca that was born under the park's now-defunct breeding programme, died from pneumonia. Now it has been announced that Kasatka, too, was put down last Tuesday. At 41, she was half the age she might have lived to in the ocean. In a tear-jerking interview with the Mail On Sunday, Mr Hargove explains that the orcas become violent in captivity, attacking their trainers, and even getting diseases they could never get in the wild, thanks to hours of sitting in their small tanks without enough room to swim. Main, SeaWorld, inset top, Kasatka took the feet of trainer Ken Peters in her jaws and took him to the bottom of the pool and inset bottom, trainer Dawn Brancheau, killed by an orca in 2010.

Tory Ministers have warned Brexit Secretary David Davis that Britain's hopes of getting a good US trade deal could be wrecked by the growing crisis surrounding Donald Trump.

Born in the USSA: Neo-Nazi leader of Charlottesville

Jeff Schoep, anti-Semitic 'commander' of the National Socialist Movement who was in Charlottesville, said that despite what he called a 'car accident', the disruptive event had empowered disparate white nationalist groups across America. Few would agree the hardcore agitators went to Charlottesville with peaceful intent after the city decided to remove the statue of a Confederate general in a park. They sought to inflame national debate over historic artefacts and the legacy of slavery. It was the boldest show of force by violent white supremacists in generations with chilling scenes of flaming torches, KKK insignia, swastikas, anti-Semitic slogans and menacing gun-toting militia. Many protesters wore protective gear and carried shields, staves and pepper spray.

How Diana's final days changed British life forever

They were just seven days of late summer, a fragment of time in the noisy tumult of British history. Yet the week Diana, Princess of Wales, died was one which changed our country, minute by heart-breaking minute. In a special report, the Mail on Sunday relives her final weeks and moments. The Princess' last hours were captured on camera (left) at the Ritz hotel in Paris with her lover Dodi on August 30 after enjoying a meal, before fatally getting in the limousine which later crashed (top left). The following day, her body arrived back in the UK (top centre) and mourners then began to fill the outskirts of both Buckingham (bottom left) and Kensington Palace (top right) with flowers and tributes. Pictured of September 4, her two young sons Princes William and Harry were photographed wiping tears from their eyes as they studied the heartfelt messages left to their mother. The following day, the Queen (bottom right) made the unusual move of appearing on live television amid a public outcry that the palace had not used the royal flag to fly at half-mast in tribute to the late princess. Finally, the mother-of-two was laid to rest on September 6 (far right).

Elena Goodall overcame McDonald's and KFC addiction

A 29-year-old woman who dramatically shed 115 kilograms has opened up about how she overcame her fast food addiction. Elena Goodall, from Queensland, tipped the scales at 184 kilograms at her heaviest after living off an unhealthy diet where she gorged on McDonald's and KFC. But her turning point came after doctors made a shocking admission she would not live past the age of 40 if she continues adding to her waistline.

Photographs capture New York from the 1960s to the 1990s

Carole Teller's 'Changing New York' depicts how lower Manhattan drastically changed through the eras. The photos show how the artistic NYC district also held onto certain characteristics no matter the decade. Teller's pictures feature every type of New Yorker, from the homeless to the children, the artists and the men in suits. Manhattan may now be dotted with Soul Cycles and Shake Shacks, luxury apartments and designer boutiques, but the relics of its past have been preserved thanks to Teller and her camera. The artist, who has lived in the East Village since the early 1960's, kept her lens trained on the city as buildings came and went, while others refused to relent. The poignant collection also shows what has been preserved in New York through the decades, from the carts selling shaved ice to the fascination of a crowd with a performer in the middle of Washington Square Park.

Worker caught dumping Japanese Knotweed in stream

Knotweed did not show up on a survey when Simon Walker bought his £550,000 house in North London (his garden pictured, inset) in November 2014, but a neighbour later told him it was growing in his garden. Mr Walker claims it came from adjacent agency land. It is also in other gardens and Mr Walker and his neighbours made repeated requests to the agency to deal with it. The contractor turned up in June last year, when he was filmed by the residents clearing it from the riverbank, which is agency land (main).

White Helmets to ride for the last time next month

The White Helmets are set to make their final public appearance on September 16 at the Preston Military Show - and it seems a reprieve is unlikely. They are regarded as the Red Arrows of the road, and for 90 years they have performed death-defying feats atop roaring. But now the White Helmets are to be silenced for ever. A Ministry of Defence source told The Mail on Sunday the shows' impact on Army's recruitment is no longer effective. Veterans are furious at the decision.

The issue came to light following problems suffered by online trader Gary Cannell, who sells model racing cars to British enthusiasts.

The clip, filmed in an unknown location, shows the man (pictured) shaking his friend's left hand before contorting his joints to use the same hand to shake his pal's right hand.

Bear copies Chubby Checker's famous moves as they dance

The amazing dancing bear(pictured) seemed to be lost in the moment when he was snapped in Jasper National Park in Alberta, Canada, by photographer Christopher Martin. The animal's moves bear a striking resemblance to the dance made famous in the 1960 hit by Chubby Checker but in reality he's just performing a bear necessity: scratching his back on a tree.

Manor house where Dylan Thomas wrote Under Milk Wood

In the late 1940s, this Grade II listed manor house in South Leigh, near Oxford, was home to Welsh poet Dylan Thomas, and was where he wrote much of Under Milk Wood.

The Grade II listed Manor House, which dates back to 1650, is beautifully presented. The drawing room and the beamed dining room both have Georgian bay windows and open fireplaces. There are three acres of outside space, split equally between garden and paddock.
