In the upcoming fourth season of the hit Netflix period drama, viewers will be introduced to a young Lady Diana Spencer, played by Emma Corrin, as she meets her future husband, Prince Charles.

While Princess Diana went on to become a global style icon, her sense of style was not always up to par, Corrin says.

“That was something I loved about it,” the 24-year-old told Entertainment Weekly.

“Basically, I loved young Diana. You can’t understand old Diana – older Diana – properly without understanding a 19-year-old living with her flatmates, going on her first date with Charles. You need to understand the trajectory that she underwent. But her style was

Who has the best style on the team?

With only 25 percent capacity being allowed, Kyle Field is not nearly as full this season as usual. That means that most Texas A&M fans are instead watching games at home instead of being in the stands.

With being there, one thing people are not able to see is the weekly ‘Ask the Aggies’ feature on the videoboard. It is always a fun segment that the players seem to enjoy as they try to make each other laugh.

This week’s question during the win over Florida was who has the best style on the team. Judging from the answers, it is a contentious question.

True freshman Jaylon Jones had no problem immediately answering that it was him. However, that answer drew laughter from fellow true freshmen Antonio Johnson. Johnson thought it was him.

Kicker Seth Small also nominated himself, saying his mother knew how to

Matt Nagy’s Ditka-Style Rant Sent Message Well Received

There was a little Mike Ditka in Matt Nagy and his players didn’t mind hearing it one bit.

When the Bears coach went on a Ditka-like tirade on Friday about his offense’s execution—or lack therof—the message hit home.  

Better yet, they agreed. 

Well, calling it a Ditka-style tirade is stretching it a bit but for Nagy it was not his usual positive, supportive self. So when players heard this they knew he meant business.

“I think everybody should be fired up about that,” Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson said. “That’s what also makes the players that we have in this locker room special, is we don’t have any complacency. None of our quarterbacks are complacent.

“Our receivers aren’t complacent. Nobody is walking around here satisfied. Yeah, we fortunately have started 4-1. It’s tough to win in this league. But at the end of the day, we’re not sitting back waiting

Hospital workers caught on video in vicious MMA-style fight

Two workers in a London hospital have been filmed in an MMA-style brawl, wrestling each other to the ground in what appears to be the hospital restaurant.

Footage shows the women ignoring social distancing as they engage in the fight, The Sun reports.

At the beginning of the clip, believed to have been filmed over the weekend, the workers can be seen squaring up to one another.

One of the women, who is wearing blue scrubs with her mask pulled down, points her finger and shouts at the other.

Her colleague then yells back at her, towering over her with her hands on her hips.

One of the workers then lashes out by hitting the other, a move quickly returned by her colleague.

Black man who was led by mounted police using a rope sues over ‘slave’-style arrest

The Black man’s hands were cuffed behind his back as two white police officers on horseback steered him through the streets of Galveston, Texas. The mounted officers used a long blue rope to guide the man several blocks under the glare of the summer sun.

Footage of Donald Neely’s August 2019 arrest triggered a national outcry, with the scene drawing comparisons to the inhumane treatment of enslaved people in the 1800s.

According to Neely’s lawsuit, the way he was arrested made him feel “as though he was a slave.” The lawsuit, filed against the city and its police force last week, alleges that Neely’s arrest on suspicion of criminal trespassing was “extreme and outrageous.”

The police chief apologized, and the charges have been dropped, according to Neely’s attorney, Julie Ketterman. But Neely is now seeking up to $1 million in damages for emotional distress, malicious prosecution, and negligence after suffering

The Italian royal chats about personal style, baubles, and becoming the face of Buccellati.

When we think of diamonds, we often think of aristocracy. And indeed, the 101-year-old Italian jeweler Buccellati found an ambassador with a modern royal pedigree in Beatrice Borromeo. The journalist and documentary filmmaker is the daughter of the Italian Countess Donna Paola Marzotto and Count Carlo Ferdinando Borromeo and wife of Pierre Casiraghi, the youngest son of Monaco’s Princess Caroline and Grace Kelly’s grandson.

Buccellati’s latest campaign for its Hawaii, Macri, Ramage, and High Jewelry collections is a collaboration between Lucrezia Buccellati, the fourth-generation co-creative of the house, and Borromeo. Shot by Josh Olins in Rome, where Borromeo once lived, the black-and-white images are all glamour, elegance, and effortlessness.

NBA considering baseball-style series, MLK Day start for next season (report)

Now that the 2019-20 NBA season has, finally, officially ended, the focus is immediately turning to the 2020-21 season, which probably won’t involve any “2020” at all.

John Hollinger, former writer-turned NBA executive with the Memphis Grizzlies-turned writer again has an interesting look at the timeframe for the offseason and upcoming season. There is, of course, the matter of getting the league’s finances in order, which will include new collectively bargained salary cap numbers announced sometime early next month

It also includes creating a schedule for next season. With a regular season bubble likely off the table, the league is going to look into games in home arenas. Whether that includes fans is still to be determined, but the NBA is determined to get the full 82 games played in an effort to recoup COVID-19 losses. They also eventually want to get their calendar back on track, so they have
