  • French fighter jets find takers in a worried world

    By John Irish RIYADH (Reuters) - After failing for years to win a single order for the Dassault-built Rafale fighter jet, France has scored a string of multi-billion-euro wins in recent weeks and is on a quest for more.

  • Britain's new princess can't expect fairy-tale life

    William and Kate's new daughter is the first British princess who won't face royal discrimination because she's a girl, but that doesn't mean her life will be a fairy tale. Thanks to a change in the centuries-old rules of royal succession, if Princess Charlotte has a younger brother, he won't overtake her in line to the throne. The experience of Kate — and, even more, of the baby's late grandmother, Princess Diana — suggests the level of interest the princess can expect.
