Ooh, la la, Carla and Nicolas are rumoured to be with child…well, best of luck to them, but I was just a little bemused at their friend Jacques Seguela’s comment that the pair were a ‘young’ couple….eerrr, I know 40 is the new 30 and all that, but young ? ….Perhaps it’s a European thing…..
Hats off to Michelle Obama for her openess about the trials and tribulations of marriage. While fighting wars, restoring economies, and reforming health care are par for the course in the American Presidentia, it’s rare to hear such personally candid comments from a nation’s First Lady.

Very touching to see the story of the Danish royals nostalgic visit to Hanoi, and the unveiling of Henrik’s grandfather’s memorial plaque.
