Meghan Markle And Prince Harry Expecting A Second Child

The Sussexes are going to need a bigger boat.

A spokesperson for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex confirmed the joyful news today. “We can confirm that Archie is going to be a big brother. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are overjoyed to be expecting their second child.”

Archie is the couple’s first-born, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

The news comes as the couple approaches the one-year review of their status as independent operators from the royal family. Queen Elizabeth promises to review their status after allowing the Megxit of the couple from official duties. They have since relocated to California and have signed a lucrative production deal with Netflix.

Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, revealed in November in an op-ed that she suffered a miscarriage in July, explaining in a personal New York Times op-ed that losing a child means “carrying an almost unbearable grief.”

Watch a young Elon Musk get his first supercar in 1999

New York (CNN Business)Elon Musk wants to have a conversation with Vladmir Putin on his new favorite social media app: Clubhouse.

On Saturday, the Tesla CEO tagged the Kremlin’s official account to ask if the Russian president would like to join him in a conversation on audio-only app.
“Would you like join me for a conversation on Clubhouse?,” Musk said in a tweet on Saturday. He then followed up with a tweet in Russian, which translates to: “It would be a great honor to talk to you.”

    было бы большой честью поговорить с вами

    As of Sunday, there was no reply to Musk’s requests from the Kremlin’s official presidential account. It’s unclear if Putin is interested in speaking with the tech billionaire. Kremlin’s The Russia Presidential office didn’t immediately respond to request for comment.
    Putin isn’t the only public figure Musk has tapped for a chat. Musk recently tweeted that he and billionaire rapper Kanye West are set to make an appearance on the platform. No dates have been announced for when the two will join forces for a Clubhouse meeting.

    Musk’s move comes shortly after the CEO made his own debut on the buzzy, invite-only social conversation app last month. The conversation spanned everything from memes, crypto and even a surprise discussion with Robinhood CEO, Vlad Tenev following it’s role in the GameStop (GME) frenzy.

    “Working closely with the NSW Independent Liquor and Gaming Authority and regulators in Victoria and Western Australia, I will continue to lead on implementation of Crown’s ambitious reform program.”

    Three Crown directors resigned last week in the wake of former Supreme Court judge Patricia Bergin’s report, which was the result of an 18-month public inquiry into the group.

    Tokyo Olympic organizers could choose their new president as early as this week, a report said on Monday, after former chief Yoshiro Mori resigned over sexist remarks that provoked a global outcry.

    Local organizers need to "urgently" pick a new president with just five months left to prepare for the Games amid the Covid-19 pandemic and are setting up a selection committee made up of an equal number of men and women, the group's chief executive Toshiro Muto said last week.

    The selection committee will hold its first meeting at the start of this week, Nippon TV reported, citing unidentified sources. Committee members will submit names of candidates in the days after and could select the new president as soon as this week, the report said.

    However, the process could carry over into next week if there is a large number of candidates, Nippon TV said.

    The Summer Olympics, which were postponed last year due to the pandemic, are scheduled to open July 23.
