Woman develops incurable skin condition after New Year's Eve kiss

<p>When Aimee Godden kissed someone on New Year’s Eve, it triggered an incurable skin condition that ended up changing her life.</p> <p>Godden was diagnosed with a mild case of psoriasis when she was 14, an autoimmune condition that causes the skin to go red and inflamed.</p> <p>But as a teenager, the condition wasn’t too noticeable, and she was able to cover the inflammation with clothes or a small amount of makeup.</p> <p>But fast forward to 2018, Godden made the mistake of kissing someone who, unknown to her, had tonsillitis.</p> <p>That was when she started developing large patches of dry skin on her forehead, cheeks and chest.</p> <p>“A doctor diagnosed me with guttate psoriasis and said tonsillitis had triggered it,” she explained.</p> <p>“I was devastated to be told there was no cure and terrified I would look like this forever.</p> <p>“My face was completely different to the one I’d known my whole life.”</p> <p>It took such a huge toll on her life, that she moved back home and refused to leave or even look at herself in the mirror.</p> <p>But in the age of social media, Godden decided to speak up about her condition on Instagram, and that was when things took a dramatic turn.</p> <p>After she posted a photo of her condition, it didn’t take long for it to gain traction with the response she received being overwhelmingly positive.</p> <p>“In public, people have pointed at my face and said ‘urgh’, but online I’ve had such a positive response,” she said.</p> <p>“You expect acceptance and support from friends and family. And when it comes from strangers, it feels so genuine.”</p> <p>Now, she has learnt to accept her skin condition, even though there are times where she feels discomfort and pain.</p> <p>Psoriasis can be itchy and may give off a burning sensation.</p> <p>She manages the condition by living healthily and undergoing light therapy treatment.</p> <p>The first night she went out after developing the condition, she says she felt very self conscious - until a man walked over and asked if he could buy her a drink.</p> <p>They are now expecting their first child in October.</p> <p>“I’d worried psoriasis would stop me finding love,” she said.</p> <p>“But I feel so much love in my life right now.”</p> <p>Godden is now a passionate advocate of loving the skin you’re in.</p> <p>“Whether it’s a scar, spots, pigmentation, a birthmark, hair loss, or skin condition ... We are often told that we need filters, makeup, good lighting and a perfect complexion to look ‘good’,” she wrote in an Instagram post in May, announcing a “Face Equality” selfie challenge.</p> <p>“We are all constantly exposed to the idea that our perceived value is dictated by our appearance.</p> <p>“This week we come together to challenge stigma, to refuse to be othered, and to campaign for a world that no longer reduces our value to our appearance.”</p>

Why Princess Beatrice’s wedding band is so special

<p>Princess Beatrice added her own personal touch to the royal wedding tradition as she married Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi on Friday morning.</p> <p>Being the first royal to wed at Windsor’s Royal Chapel of All Saints, Beatrice was forced to keep a guest list of 20 people due to COVID-19 guidelines.</p> <p>And while everyone is focusing on the stunning wedding dress she borrowed from her grandmother the Queen, they forgot to focus on one accessory that’s different from many royal brides before her.</p> <p>Her wedding band.</p> <p>Beatrice’s wedding band was designed by jeweller Shaun Leane, who also created her Art Deco-meets-Victorian engagement ring.</p> <p>According to Hello, the platinum and diamond band was made to fit around the engagement ring and was crafted in consultation with the couple.</p> <p>"I am thrilled for the happy couple, it warms my heart to see two wonderful people unite in love as much as Edoardo and Beatrice do," the British jeweller said in a statement.</p> <p>Over the last 100 years, most royal brides have chosen gold wedding bands, which is why Beatrice’s ring is different from the rest.</p> <p>Many royal wedding rings have been created from a single lump of gold taken from the Clogau St David mine in Wales since 1923. These include the bands belonging to Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles and Princess Diana.</p> <p>Old family tradition or not, it was clear Beatrice had her own vision for her wedding ring.</p>

<p><span>She may have already been a member of the royal family, but after tying the knot with Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi over the weekend, Princess Beatrice can add another role to her list.</span></p> <p><span>In a private, intimate ceremony at Windsor Castle, Beatrice said ‘I do’ to her now husband in a beautiful vintage dress loaned to her by her grandmother the Queen.</span></p> <p><span>But she isn’t the only one who has a family of aristocrats as Edoardo himself is the son of Count Alessandro Mapelli Mozzi and Nikki Shale from the Italian royal House of Savoy.</span></p> <p><span>He also has a three-year-old son Christopher ‘Wolfie’ Woolf from his previous marriage with Chinese-American architect Dara Huang.</span></p> <p><span>This means Princess Beatrice has another fancy title she can include in her repertoire.</span></p> <p><span>“Edoardo is the only male descendent taking the family into the next generation,” his father told </span><em>The Daily Mail</em><span>. </span></p> <p><span>“He is a count — his wife will be a countess automatically and any of their children will be counts or nobile donna.”</span></p> <p><span>It is assumed that she will follow in her younger sister’s footsteps and drop the ‘York’ from her title.</span></p> <p><span>The 31-year-old is taking up another very important role, one that has nothing to do with royalty – and that’s becoming a stepmother.</span></p> <p><span>Edo has previously told </span><em>The Telegraph</em><span> that he and Wolfie’s mother, Dara are on amicable terms, saying they co-parent the young child.</span></p> <p><span>“I take [Christopher] to school a couple of mornings a week and finish in time to put him in bed three or four evenings,” he said.</span></p> <p><span>The couple was set to marry on 29 May at the Chapel Royal in St James’s Palace in London, but the service was delayed to the pandemic.</span></p> <p><span>After a recent relaxation of lockdown rules, weddings are allowed to take place in England but with no more than 30 guests.</span></p> <p><span>“Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice of York and Mr. Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi were married in a small family ceremony on Friday 17th July. The ceremony took place at The Royal Chapel of All Saints at Royal Lodge, Windsor, with the kind permission of Her Majesty The Queen,” the palace confirmed at the time.</span></p> <p><span>“The couple decided to hold a small private ceremony with their parents and siblings following the postponement of their wedding in May. Working within government guidelines, the service was in keeping with the unique circumstances while enabling them to celebrate their wedding with their closest family.”</span></p>

The phone call that had the Queen giggling

<p>Queen Elizabeth II has had a chuckle while participating in a video call with members of the British Armed Forces.</p> <p>A new video has been released of the Queen’s video call with the Chief of the Defense Staff, General Sir Nicholas Carter and three service personnel from the British Army, Royal Navy and Royal Air Force.</p> <p>Hearing from Lieutenant Colonel Barrie Terry (on a UN Peacekeeping mission in Mali), Able Rate Sophie Levy (deployed onboard the RFA Argus in the Caribbean) and Lance Corporal Shanwayne Stephens (a member of the Queen’s Colour Squadron), the monarch asked the personnel about their work and activities outside the forces.</p> <div class="embed-responsive embed-responsive-16by9"><iframe class="embed-responsive-item" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/6-0H11TjO6U"></iframe></div> <p>When Stephens told Her Majesty that he is the pilot for the Jamaican national bobsled team, she gasped and giggled. “Gosh! Sounds a very dangerous job,” she said.</p> <p>Stephens also added that he resorted to “unorthodox” training regime while gyms were closed during the coronavirus lockdown. “I’ve been pushing a car up and down the street,” he said.</p> <p>The Queen giggled again, saying: “Oh! Well, I suppose that’s one way to train.”</p> <p>Stephens later told <em><a href="https://www.hellomagazine.com/royalty/2020071493459/the-queen-armed-forces-video-call/">HELLO!</a></em> the monarch appeared to be “very relaxed” during the call. “She was really smiley, she looked like she was eager to meet people and hear people’s stories,” he said.</p> <p>“She had a big smile on her face when I said about pushing the car.

Meghan Markle gives speech for first time since leaving royal family

<p><span>Meghan Markle has given her first speech since stepping down as a senior member of the royal family.</span><br /><br /><span>The Duchess of Sussex virtually addressed via webcam at the United Nations’ annual virtual Girl Up leadership summit on Tuesday.</span><br /><br /><span>Girl Up has a presence in 120 countries and works to “empower women and inspire them to get involved in social change,” and Meghan contributed by giving advice on how to deal with critics and “push through the fear”.</span><br /><br /><span>More than 40,000 people tuned in around the world.</span><br /><br /><span>“Your generation is often referred to as digital natives, and you understand that our online world has the power to affirm and support as much as it does to harm,” the 38-year-old said during her speech.</span><br /><br /><span>“We are not meant to be breaking each other down; we are meant to be building each other up. So use your voice both on and offline to do just that – build each other up, support each other.”</span><br /><br /><span>Markle urged the people watching to make use of their own voices to “drown out the noise” and the critics they might face as they fight to make change.</span><br /><br /><span>“There will always be negative voices and sometimes those voices can appear to be outsized, and sometimes they can appear to be painfully loud,” she said.</span><br /><br /><span>“You can and will use your own voices to drown out the noise. Because that’s what it is – just noise. But your voices are those of truth. And hope. And your voices can and should be much louder.”</span><br /><br /><span>Royal Commentator Victoria Arbiter informed Sunrise that the event was particularly “significant” as it is “setting the stage for the type of work Meghan is going to want to do moving forwards.”</span><br /><br /><span>“This is an opportunity to launch herself as a philanthropist and as an authority on this topic on this side of the atlantic,” she said.</span><br /><br /><span>“I think we’re going to see a lot more of this going forwards.”</span><br /><br /><span>Arbiter went on to say Harry and Meghan are in a lucrative position.</span><br /><br /><span>“Let’s take an event in the future in which she could be paid... a number of experts in the field have said that individually Harry or Meghan could command upwards of $500,000 for an appearance,” Arbiter said.</span><br /><br /><span>“If they appear at something together, they could be looking at $1,000,000.”</span><br /><br /><span>“If Harry and Meghan want to maintain their lifestyle then they’re going to need to make some significant money moving forwards, and public speaking is the most lucrative way to do that.”</span></p>
