  • Kate and William's 'daughter' given direct right to throne in RADICAL new rules

    A radical shake-up which came into force after Australia brought its laws into line with the others, means that if the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have a girl she can no longer be superseded in the line of succession by a younger brother. Under the changes in the Succession to the Crown Act, a member of the Royal Family can now also marry a Roman Catholic and become monarch but Catholics are still banned from being King or Queen. The new law also replaces the outdated Royal Marriages Act 1772 and means that only the first six in line to the throne need the Queen's consent to marry - replacing a long-standing requirement affecting hundreds of distant royal relations who are descendants of George II. Princess Eugenie, who is seventh in line to the throne, no longer needs her grandmother's permission to wed, while Princess Beatrice still needs the Queen's consent - but only if she gets engaged before the arrival of William and Kate's second child, after which Beatrice drops down to seventh in line.

  • Co-pilot appeared healthy, but may have hidden illness

    Germanwings co-pilot Andreas Lubitz appeared happy and healthy to acquaintances, but a picture emerged Friday of a man who hid evidence of an illness from his employers — including a torn-up doctor's note that would have kept him off work the day authorities say he crashed Flight 9525 into an Alpine mountainside. As German prosecutors sought to piece together the puzzle of why Lubitz locked his captain out of the cockpit and crashed the Airbus A320, police in the French Alps toiled to retrieve the shattered remains of the 150 people killed in Tuesday's crash. Searches conducted at Lubitz's homes in Duesseldorf and in the town of Montabaur turned up documents pointing to "an existing illness and appropriate medical treatment," but no suicide note was found, said Ralf Herrenbrueck, a spokesman for the Duesseldorf prosecutors' office.

  • Isis war on Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi is huge PR own goal

    It is rare that you find similarities between the leafy boulevards and smart cafes of Jerusalem's Jaffa Street and the hectic, traffic-snarled chaos of Ramallah's Al Manara Square, but on El Clasico matchdays the flags in both Israel and Palestine are the same – blue, red and white. The one thing (perhaps the only thing) that Israelis and Palestinians of all stripes can agree on is a love for either Real Madrid or Barcelona, and the few times a year that the Spanish titans meet are the times when the heavy and often ugly tension that so often hangs in the air in both cities is refreshingly absent. A love for Spanish football is something that applies throughout the Middle East and whether you are a Westerner, Arab, Kurd or Jew, you will be expected to come down on one side of the El Clasico divide, and be prepared to defend your choice forcefully and convincingly.

  • German airline could face 'unlimited' damages for Alps crash

    Lufthansa could face "unlimited" compensation claims for the crash that killed 150 people in the French alps and it would be difficult, even counterproductive, for the German carrier to try to avoid liability, experts said Friday. To avoid liability, a carrier has to prove that the crash wasn't due to "negligence or other wrongful act" by its employees, according to Article 21 of the 1999 Montreal Convention. Germanwings is a subsidiary of Lufthansa.
