    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will spend Christmas morning apart

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will have their first Christmas as a married couple, but the royals will most probably not be together early on Christmas morning. According to the Daily Mail, former royal chef Darren McGrady, the royal family likes to stick to tradition during the holidays, and early Christmas morning, the ladies of the family and the gentleman split up, and it's all because of food. Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton will enjoy a light Christmas breakfast delivered to their rooms, including sliced fruit, half a grapefruit, toast and coffee and the Queen's tray is delivered at exactly 9am according to McGrady.

    Netflix TV shows: The 25 best series to watch in the UK

It was the first episode of House of Cards – a $100 million TV series that would only be available on the Internet. Netflix was a major winner at the Emmys, its haul of 23 awards attesting to its power-player status.

    Long-term plan for NHS funding delayed amid Brexit chaos

    The government’s chaos over Brexit has forced NHS leaders to delay publication of the health service’s long-term plan. The document, which will set out how the NHS in England will spend the £20.5bn budget increase Theresa May has promised, was due to come out early next week, but that has been postponed until January. Further tension between the NHS England chief executive, Simon Stevens, and ministers over how ambitious the plan will be – first reported by the Guardian last week – had also held things up, sources added.

    UK court rules regulator treated Sainsbury's, Asda unfairly in probe

    A British court ruled on Friday that the country's competition regulator treated Sainsbury's and takeover target Asda unfairly in not allowing the supermarket groups more time to respond to evidence submitted as part of a probe of their deal. Sainsbury's agreed a 7.3 billion-pound takeover of Walmart-owned Asda in April and the deal is being probed by the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA). On Wednesday the two companies said they would apply to the Competition Appeal Tribunal (CAT) for a judicial review of the CMA's phase two investigation of the deal, which started in September.

    Exclusive: Nissan probe into Ghosn trains lens on 'CEO Reserve' fund, Dutch unit

    Nissan Motor Co Ltd investigators are examining former Chairman Carlos Ghosn's use of an internal 'CEO Reserve' fund and the role of subsidiaries in the Netherlands and other countries as part of a probe into alleged financial misconduct, two people with knowledge of the inquiry told Reuters. Ghosn and close associates spent money from a fund that some insiders dubbed 'the CEO Reserve' to help pay for residences used by the Ghosn family as well as for other personal expenses, the people said. Investigators are separately checking whether capital from some subsidiaries was also used to pay for Ghosn family residences and whether such payments were split into small chunks to escape checks by internal financial staff and auditors, they added.

    UNC system rejects $5M plan to house Confederate statue

University of North Carolina System Chairman Harry Smith said cost was a primary concern in turning down the proposal to move the statue known as "Silent Sam" into a new building on the outskirts of the Chapel Hill flagship campus. The statewide Board of Governors passed a resolution Friday to have several of its members work on a new plan that's due in March.

Ambassador Joel Lion said on Facebook that he was "shocked' to see the regional legislature in Lviv in western Ukraine declare 2019 "the year of Stepan Bandera" to mark the 110th anniversary of his birth. Bandera was a leader of Ukraine's nationalist movement, which included an insurgent army that for one period sided with the Nazis during World War II. Jewish groups have linked Bandera's followers to the mass murders of Jews.

The magazine’s parent company, Clarity Media, announced the closure on Friday, blaming the shuttering of one of the most august conservative titles on the declining number of its digital subscribers.
