Who is the poorest among the Royal Family?

The Norwegian Kingdom lives the most modest life among all the European Royal families. This has made people believe that the king of Norway is one of the poorest monarchs on Earth, as this royal family lives the most modest life compared to the other royal families in Europe. The members of this family dress in a very simple way, even at formal events, which distinguishes them from other noble people.

Moreover, they don’t live on the money of taxpayers, but instead, try to earn money themselves.

For example, Prince Haakon, together with the Katzenjammer band, recorded a single for Christmas.

The success of the song was mind-blowing. All the money Haakon made from this collaboration was donated to charity.

Queen Elizabeth’s husband Prince Philip dies at age 99

Queen Elizabeth’s husband Prince Philip dies at age 99

Queen Elizabeth’s husband Prince Philip dies: The Duke of Edinburgh, the Queen’s “strength and stay” for 73 years, has died aged 99, a statement from Buckingham Palace has confirmed.

Flags on landmark buildings in Britain were being lowered to half-mast as a period of mourning was announced.

Prince Philip’s health had been slowly deteriorating for some time. He announced he was stepping down from royal engagements in May 2017, joking that he could no longer stand up. He made a final official public appearance later that year during a Royal Marines parade on the forecourt of Buckingham Palace.

Since then, he was rarely seen in public, spending most of his time on the Queen’s Sandringham estate in Norfolk, though moving to be with her at Windsor Castle during the lockdown periods throughout the Covid-19 pandemic and where the couple quietly celebrated their 73rd wedding anniversary in November 2020. He also celebrated his 99th birthday in lockdown at Windsor Castle.

The duke spent four nights at King Edward VII hospital in London before Christmas 2019 for observation and treatment in relation to a “pre-existing condition”.

Despite having hip surgery in April 2018, he attended the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle a month later and was seen sitting beside the Queen at a polo match at Windsor Great Park in June. He and the Queen missed Prince Louis of Cambridge’s christening in July 2018, but he was seen attending Crathie Kirk near Balmoral in August and driving his Land Rover in the surrounding Scottish countryside in September.

Despite living quietly out of the public eye, he made headlines when involved in a car crash in January 2019. Two women needed hospital treatment after he was apparently dazzled by the low sun as he pulled out of a driveway on the Sandringham estate. A nine-month-old baby boy in the other vehicle was unhurt. The Crown Prosecution Service decided it was not in the public interest to prosecute the duke after he later voluntarily surrendered his driving license.

Born on the island of Corfu, Prince Philip, who once described himself as “a discredited Balkan prince of no particular merit or distinction”, played a key role in the development of the modern monarchy in Britain.

American rapper DMX dies

Earl Simmons a.k.a DMX American rapper dies at 50

Earl Simmons a.k.a DMX American rapper dies: The family of the American rapper cum actor, DMX has announced his demise in their released statement. DMX was born in 1970 and was yet to turn 51 years.

“We are deeply saddened to announce today that our loved one, DMX, birth name of Earl Simmons, passed away at 50-years-old at White Plains Hospital with his family by his side after being placed on life support for the past few days,” family’s statement read in part.

“Earl was a warrior who fought till the very end,” the family continued. “He loved his family with all of his heart and we cherish the times we spent with him.”

The artist had been hospitalized since last week when he suffered a heart attack at his home in New York, according to his longtime attorney, Murray Richman.

Many celebrities have paid tribute to him on social media since last Friday.


DMX (Dark Man X) began rapping in the early 1990s and released his debut album, “It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot,” in 1998.

With the deaths of fellow rappers The Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac Shakur before he burst on the scene, DMX became one of the reigning stars of hardcore hip hop and was the premier artist signed to the Ruffhouse Records label.
His single, “Ruff Ryders Anthem,” helped to seal his critical and commercial success.

He sold millions of albums, boosted by hits like “Get At Me Dog” in 1998, “Party Up,” in 1999, and “X Gon’ Give It to Ya,” in 2003.

He parlayed his growing fame into an acting career, appearing in multiple films including, “Romeo Must Die” and “Cradle 2 The Grave.”

His professional achievements were often overshadowed by his issues with substance abuse and run-ins with the law. He pleaded guilty to tax fraud in 2017 and was sentenced to one year in prison.

Global Boga gives first exclusive interview after the death of wife Nicole Thea and baby son Reign

Dancer turned Afrobeat artist Global Boga has given his first broadcast interview since losing his wife, 24-year-old YouTuber Nicole Thea, who died last July while eight months pregnant. The couple’s newborn baby son, Reign, also died.

Speaking exclusively to BBC Radio 1 Newsbeat reporter Joice Etutu about his grief, Global Boga said: “I thought I wasn’t going to make it. In my brain, I had discussions with the man up there, because what else have I got? Like, I’ve been in this country alone. Alone. And it’s been so hard.

“I met my queen, I met my guardian angel, and in two years, it just vanished.”

In an intimate family photo, shared exclusively with BBC Radio 1 Newsbeat, Global Boga’s newborn son Reign can be seen holding his father’s hand, shortly before he also died. The family wanted this moment to be shared.

Speaking about the thing he will miss most about Nicole, Boga said: “It’s Nicole’s love. She showed me some kind of thing that no matter what you’re going through, we’re one. And you’re OK.”

He said he clearly remembers his final moments with Nicole when he closes his eyes, but he has to “keep it moving”.

He said: “When I close my eyes like this now, it’s just the last moment of what happened, me and her… Her love is strong. So when I close my eyes that is literally all I see. And I have to open my eyes because I don’t want to get to the end of that, because it still doesn’t make sense until now. So I just keep my strength to myself, and keep it moving.”

Nicole’s and Reign’s causes of death are currently unknown. There hasn’t been an inquest yet – many hearings have been postponed because of the pandemic. The family also say they can’t disclose the circumstances surrounding their deaths, as they’re going through legal proceedings to find out how and why this happened.

Global Boga has turned to music to cope with his grief recording EP The Pain.

“Anything I feel now, I just express through music. But when you listen to it you’re not going to hear any pain. I want to take people [away] from that. Let’s start dancing. We’re not dancing because I’ve lost my wife and son. But we’re dancing because there’s a better reign, you know?”

Asked how he wants people to remember Nicole, Global Boga said: “Her love. That’s all I want you guys to know. Look at the way she loved me. My world has been taken away.”
