If Prince Harry were to marry Meghan Markle

I’m no big Royalty watcher (but I do keep an eye on them folks) and no keen advocate for keeping the Royals on the throne, and in comfort, but there’s something nice about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as a couple. I’d like to see them make it permanent. However, I don’t think such a move would go down so well with the hardcore Royalty supporters and their support is crucial if the UK is to not become a Republic, something I wouldn’t mind either.

Just thinking, if Prince Harry and Meghan Markle make it permanent, it would set the Royalty on the long road towards redundancy.

On the other hand, there are lots of people, especially the Royal household, who number in the thousands, who rely on the Royalty for their livelihood. These people will do everything possible to make Harry break up with Meghan. I hope they fail.

Sumiya Dorjsuren - Judo's latest heroine

For a judoka, an Ippon is the equivalent to a boxing knock-out. If you don't manage that, a Waza-ari comes close. Koshi-guruma is one of the original 40 throws of Judo as developed by Jigoro Kano and Sumiya Dorjsuren managed exactly that at the 2017 World Judo Championships in Budapest against the World number one, Tsukasa Yoshida of Japan.

Well, Mongolia has a new heart-throb!
