    Meghan has pretty much proved how kind and big-hearted she is, through her humanitarian work.

    Now she’s shown that she’s a good friend too. Thanking Kate Middleton and six of her bridesmaids for their help at the royal wedding, Meghan designed bespoke gold bracelets for her nearest and dearest.

    She commissioned California-based jewellers Zofia Day to create the Solid Gold Disc Bracelet, choosing the design for the delicate yellow trinket, fittingly called The Kensington.

    And you can get it too.

    An old dog has become a stay-at-home dad for nine little ducklings after their mother abandoned them.

    Fred the labrador stepped up after the duck mum upped and left last Thursday (17 May).

    The ducklings were found wandering around lost and alone near the battlements at Mountfitchet Castle near Stansted, Essex, where the 10-year-old dog lives.

    The staff member who found them was extremely worried about them fending for themselves but they needn’t have worried as Fred was never going to leave them flying solo.

    In fact, he’s been babysitting the little… Read the full story

    What’s wrong with a safe and consensual transaction? (Picture: Ella Byworth for Metro.co.uk)

    Another day, another flurry of media and morality where the world is convinced sex trafficking is around every corner.

    This time it’s courtesy of a group of self appointed MPs who make up the ‘All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Prostitution and the Global Sex Trade’.

    Spoilers – none of them are, or ever have been, actual sex workers. (As far as I know.)

    Advertising online keeps sex workers safe – so why is the US trying to stop it?

    A little girl has captured the moment her tooth was removed by her pet cockatoo.

    Parrot-obsessed Kylee Bobbitt spent years begging her parents to let her have a cockatoo and saved up half of the £1,400 herself.

    The 11-year-old now has an unbreakable bond with her beloved bird Penelope, who lives in a cage in her bedroom and has been taught to to hang off her finger, give kisses and even hold a pencil.

    However, one thing the bird hadn’t been trained in is dentistry –… Read the full story

    If you want to look super on trend then forget everything your mum said about not playing with your food.

    That’s because the latest Insta craze is about stacking your food up high like Jenga blocks.

    Bloggers have been sharing snaps of impossibly high towers made out of fries, cookies, brownies, churros and more.

    Instagrammers have had to get creative, plopping them up horizontally and vertically just as they would in the game, and sharing their proud constructions online using the hashtag #foodjenga.

    Iceland's reverse vending machine for recycling plastic bottles
    ‘Just act natural and pretend you’re a regular customer, Steve’ (Picture: Iceland)

    Frozen food bae Iceland has launched a reverse vending machine in its Fulham store, which rewards you for recycling.

    The machine accepts any plastic drinks bottle bought from Iceland (it can tell if it’s from Iceland from the barcode, so don’t even think about it, you snakes), and gives customers a 10p voucher to spend in store for each item deposited.

    This comes after the government announced plans for a bottle deposit scheme, where consumers would pay an upfront deposit every time they purchase a drink in a container.

    As yet another deadly shooting devastates an American school, women are being blamed for the homicidal behaviour of a man. Again.

    The 17-year-old Dimitrios Pagourtzis stormed Santa Fe High School in the Houston area of Texas with a shotgun and pistol, murdering 10 people.

    One of Pagourtzis’ victims, classmate Shana Fisher, was gunned down after having ‘four months of problems’ from the shooter, according to Fisher’s mother in a message to the Los Angeles Times.

    Fisher repeatedly rejected his advances, embarrassed him in class and ‘a week later he opens fire on everyone he didn’t like’. Rodriguez names her daughter as the first victim of Pagourtzis’ murderous rampage, although it’s unclear how she would know this.

    Even mentioning Shana Fisher’s actions as a factor in the massacre in Houston simply taps into the toxic notion that women are responsible for keeping the men around them placated and happy or else they’ll face consequences.

    As long as men and boys are taught that… Read the full story

    Carolina Giraldelli had her face painted to match her son’s birthmark, so she could experience what life is like for him for a day.

    Her son Enzo, one, was born with a dark birthmark covering his forehead and stretching down one side of his nose.

    He’s young enough not to notice any stares or comments, but Carolina wanted to feel firsthand what her baby experiences.

    She asked a makeup artist, Elaine Ricci, to replicate Enzo’s birthmark on her face, then… Read the full story

    The royal wedding was always going to bring up a wide range of emotions, such as joy, and pride, and abject terror.

    For every person waving a flag on the front lines at Windsor, there was someone watching on TV, alone, at home.

    Here’s that excuse you were waiting for to have daily brunch: An egg a day is a seriously good health choice, according to new research.

    Load up on poached, scrambled, or boiled to lower your risk of strokes and heart disease.

    A study of 416,213 people in China found that people who consume an egg daily had lower rates of strokes and heart disease compared to those who do not eat eggs.

    Participants in the study were monitored over a period of nine years.

    13.1% of the people reported daily consumption of eggs, while 9.1% said they never or rarely ate eggs.

    It was found that those who ate an egg a day… Read the full story

    The classical ‘nude’ has been a cornerstone of art since the ancient Greeks started chiseling divine abs out of stone.

    London-based photographer Chloe Rosser, however, is trying to make you question everything you thought you knew about the undressed human form.

    She’s been snapping beguiling images of human bodies in all their naked glory and contorting them into fleshy geological forms.

    In her series Form and Function, the body becomes almost inhuman – a mindless mass of flesh.

    Often wrapped in foetal positions, these torsos are photographed in contrast to the ‘ideal body’.

    In fact, the positions look almost impossible to get in; with any… Read the full story

    It’s perfectly natural to want to rush in to help someone who you think is struggling.

    It’s basic human instinct. There’s no maliciousness there, and it’s lovely that you want to help out.

    But before you go for it, ask the person if they’d actually like your help.

    That’s the message Julian Gavino, 22, wants to spread.

    Julian has Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, a connective tissue disorder that causes him issues including heart problems, mobility issues, and trouble hearing.

    Because he uses a wheelchair, people often assume he’s unable to do certain tasks, and quickly help out – opening doors, reaching things from shelves, and so on.

    Julian appreciates the intent, but he’d much rather… Read the full story
