    When Meghan Markle’s dad pulled out of the royal wedding earlier this week, her mum was rumoured to be his understudy-in-waiting.

    Doria was set to smash tradition by walking her daughter down the aisle at St George’s Chapel.

    Now it turns out that Prince Charles is going to do the honours and oh, the disappointment.

    Fair dos, you might think. After all, he’s about to become her father-in-law and if anyone knows how to handle a royal wedding, it’s him.

    In the absence of Mr Markle, there’s nothing odd about him extending his royal paternal duties.

    But for those of us excited by the prospect of an ultra-modern wedding,… Read the full story

    Money is stressful – 77% of us say we’re stressed out by money.

    But what happens when you have a mental illness that takes regular money stress to another level? Or if your money troubles significantly worsen your mental wellbeing?

    As part of our stress and money week, Metro.co.uk’s mental health podcast Mentally Yours chatted to Sarah Murphy, head of Mental Health UK’s Money Advice Service, to find out what we can do if money troubles become completely overwhelming.

    It turns out that there are a lot of services that can help – but few of us are aware of them.

    Did you know that if you have a mental illness that can cause manic spending, such as bipolar disorder, you can set up someone you trust to be in control of your money who can step in during mania?

    Finding the right therapy for you can be hard (Picture: Ella Byworth for Metro.co.uk)

    The term ‘therapy’ is broader than you might think.

    The image of the patient pouring out their woes to a sympathetic therapist is only half right.

    metro illustrationsSeeking help for a mental illness doesn’t mean you’re weak – it means you’re a badass

    In fact, if you go to your GP with anxiety or depression, you’re more likely to be referred for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) than counselling or psychotherapy, and they focus less on woes than on coping strategies.

    Remember when boobs were back, in a big way?

    Well, they’d better move over, because we have a new fashionable body part on trend right now.

    And it’s more subtle than sideboob, underboob, overboob, and big butts.

    Hip cleavage is the only relevant cleavage these days.

    The words hip and cleavage might not normally be used together but the likes of Bella Hadid, Kylie Jenner, Christina Millian, and underboob enthusiast Emily Ratajkowski have been giving it life this spring.

    Theo Fennell, a London-based jeweller, just released a student-made collection of jeweller…and it reminds us of something familiar.

    Calling it ‘Gilded Youth’, the high-end brand seems to have created a very expensive vulva and clitoris.

    Made of silver and gold, with a tiny teardrop-shaped purple gem in the middle, ‘the design is inspired by the way a goldsmith assesses a stone by placing it between their index and middle finger’ they claim.

    Designer Theo isn’t a stranger to quirky creations, having made a £10K nappy rash cream charm bracelet to celebrate the birth of Prince George a few years ago.

    A new study has shown that men are the first to lose interest in sex when it comes to long-term relationships.

    According to the research, there are ‘clear assumptions in our culture that women have lower sexual desire than men’ – it’s long been thought that men have insatiable sexual appetites for the duration of their lives, while it’s been said that women peak sexually at 33 and then coast along a life of flagging libidos while being nagged for sex.

    However, the study – published in the Journal of Sex Research – found that actually, male… Read the full story

    There’s nothing better than kicking back in a pool on a hot day with your favourite beverage.

    However, it’s pretty annoying when you have to keep swimming up to the side to take a sip.

    That issue can be a thing of the past if you get yourself these floating wine glasses, which manage to bob about on water thanks to their baseless design.

    They come in a range of styles and colours, so you can buy them all and have a colourful pool party.

    As the season comes to a close, Jawahir Roble has just made FA history.

    She’s become the first Muslim female referee in the UK. Dressed in a black coat and shorts over leggings, she also wears a hijab pitch-side.

    JJ, as she’s more commonly known, says that the first time she officiated a match, the players couldn’t believe that she was the ref.

    ‘When I first turned up to the match you could hear some boys just giggling, “No way she is the ref?! no!”,’ she recalls.

    Devoted parents splurge more than £7k on a royal-themed first birthday for their son – despite the fact he’s TOO YOUNG to remember the day
    (Picture: PA real Life)

    A mum and dad have spent £7,215 on their son’s first birthday party.

    Anil and Radhika Chintamaneni spent seven months organising the lavish bash for their son, Gian Chetan.

    But his devoted mum Radhika, 34, insists Gian Chetan, now 15 months, was worth every penny.

    The party took place back in February and featured magicians, stilt-walkers, a henna tattooist and decorative thrones.

    Radhika, 34, from Johannesburg, said: ‘We always planned to just have one baby, so we knew before he was even in my tummy that… Read the full story

    Tequila Enemigo founders Max Davies-Gilbert (left) and Robin Clough (right)

    ‘That’s the face I want to see when someone drinks our tequila!’ Max Davies-Gilbert chimed as he saw me try some of his top shelf liquor.

    My expression was one of surprise, as the tequila I was sipping from a champagne glass was pretty delightful, with a creamy smoothness giving way to a punchy warmth. No salt or lime in sight.

    Max, 28, is one of the co-founders of new tequila brand Enemigo, which has two varieties: a three-year-old caramel-coloured aged version and a clear rendition, which takes one year to process.

    He, along with his business partner Robin Clough and another friend,… Read the full story

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding is in a matter of hours – and that means it’s only a matter of hours before they get to eat cake.

    Cake, for some, is the most important part of a wedding. For others it’s a matter of take it or leave it.

    Harry and Meghan have definitely thought long and hard about their cake though, as they’ve gone with London-based Californian baker Claire Ptak, to represent Meghan’s US roots and Harry’s British.

    The royal pair announced they had chosen a lemon and elderflower sponge cake back in March, leading to a flurry of copycat bakers cashing in… Read the full story

    A teenager who has an impulse to constantly pick her skin is trying to raise awareness of the condition.

    Emma Faith O’Heeron from Houston, Texas has dermatillomania – a disorder which is relative to obsessive-compulsive disorder and causes an uncontrollable urge to pick at your skin.

    The 19-year-old writer can’t remember a time when she didn’t pick at her skin and still has a bloodstained blanket she used as a young child.

    Take it from one vegan to another – shopping for beauty products is a minefield.

    It’s been made more difficult with certain companies jumping on the bandwagon and not fully understanding what vegan really means – some brands can be a little shady with their animal testing credentials.

    While it’s now illegal to test cosmetics on animals in the UK, there are still some companies who claim to be cruelty-free, and yet sell their products in countries like China, where animal testing is mandatory. In our eyes, this means a company isn’t cruelty-free,… Read the full story

    Great Goths (Picture: Getty, Rex/Shutterstock)

    Crank up the dry ice and put Bauhaus on loud because it’s time to celebrate: 22 May 2018 is the ninth annual World Goth Day (WGD).

    A date that began as a social media idea has been embraced globally with parties, events and gigs taking place – all attended by exquisitely dressed Goths of course.

    This well-recognised, yet sometimes derided sub-culture is inspired by music and fashion.

    Devotees are usually marked out by their elaborate clothing and make-up.

    But, of course, it’s a lot more complex than a bit of eyeliner.

    Rising from the ashes of 1970s punks, the Gothic movement took on its own distinct and theatrical form; and provided… Read the full story

    Today was supposed to be my wedding day.

    As in, the royal wedding day. Because, of course it f*cking is.

    At least no one will be talking about weddings today, right? Ha ha ha.

    Today I was supposed to be wearing a dreamy white dress in Santorini.

    Instead I’m sat in my pjs in my parents’ house.

    We were naive at the beginning.

    We assumed that getting help for our son’s mental health issues would be straight forward and trusted the system.

    After all, if it was a broken leg we would have taken him to A&E and the wait for help would take hours rather than months and months.

    That sounds flippant, of course they are completely different, but the months rolled on and eventually I gave up and called the pediatrician’s office.

    ‘You haven’t dropped off the radar’ we were told. It definitely felt like we had.

    Cleft Palate transformation

    A woman who was born with a cleft palate and underwent years of bullying for her appearance has undergone ten surgeries to get it fixed.

    Cleft palate is a condition defined as a gap or split in the upper lip or roof of the mouth caused by the baby’s face not joining together properly during development in the womb.

    It affects around one in every 700 babies in the UK.
