Harry and Meghan's son Archie looked adorable, from what you could see of him

MELANIE MCDONAGH: What was Harry up to, sharing a photo of his infant son (centre), of whom Britain has had barely a glimpse since his birth, in a way that doesn't actually let you see him? In truth, as well as being undeniably cute, it's another example of the tight control Harry and Meghan have kept over their son's public profile. The details of his birth were confusing and contradictory, then he was hidden from view for days, before being exposed ever so briefly. It's natural for Harry to want to protect his son - and those artfully interposed royal fingers are a telling signal - but if he is going to put a picture of little Archie out there, how I wished he'd do it properly, or not at all. And he’s not the only famous face who hides his children for the camera: pictured (left), model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley poses with her son Jack Oscar, (top right) pop star Robbie Williams with his daughter Teddy and son Charlton, (bottom right) Holly Willoughby with her children Harry, Belle and Chester, and (inset) Madonna’s ex Guy Ritchie with his three youngest children, daughter Rivka and sons Rafael and Levi. 

Rory Stewart denies he has ever been a spy

The 46-year-old denied he worked for MI6 prior to becoming MP for Penrith and the Border in 2010. But a Whitehall source said Mr Stewart was recruited soon after he left Oxford and spent seven years as a spy. The MP for Penrith and Border has long faced questions about a possible past in espionage, especially considering his father, Brian Stewart, (pictured inset) worked for British overseas intelligence for more than 20 years.

What WAS it about GMTV?  Anthea Turner reveals how sneering rivals left her feeling

Former breakfast TV star Anthea Turner (left during her time on GMTV) has revealed how working at London-based GMTV had been a 'terrible shock' for her, due to how 'intensely hostile' the environment was. Her revelations come after comments made by ITV's Lorraine Kelly (top centre) made headlines as she snubbed Tory hopeful Esther McVey (right, during covering Fiona Phillips' maternity leave) during an awkward TV segment with Piers Morgan. Now, Anthea, who had previously been one of GMTV's biggest stars told Best magazine she struggled during her time on the show and was often put down by producers, and was made to feel 'inferior'.

Rory Stewart, the maverick Tory leadership contender: 'My campaign is run by my wife'

JOHN STEVENS: The UK's International Development Secretary, who only entered Cabinet last month, is already the 'breakout star 'of this Tory leadership campaign. His nationwide 'listening' tour, his slick deployment of social media and stunts including his appearance at Speakers' Corner have been widely praised. But his performance during the leadership debate on Channel 4 on Sunday evening - calm, refreshingly measured in his arguments, humorous and genuinely engaged - has seen him surging to second favourite at the bookmakers. 'I have to show you this, it's my greatest moment,' he tells me laughing, referring to the moment he accused his fellow contenders of an excess of 'machismo' - and won a heartfelt round of applause from the studio audience.

Last of a dynasty: The story behind 'poor little rich girl' Gloria Vanderbilt who died

'The poor little rich girl' and grand dame of society, Gloria Laura Vanderbilt, main in 1966, passed away at the age of 95 on Monday from stomach cancer. Vanderbilt was born into unimaginable wealth on February 20, 1924 as the heiress to the Vanderbilt railroad fortune; her life story is one marked by privilege, glamour, powerful friends, famous lovers, and penetrating sadness. 'She wanted to feel it all, she wanted to feel life's pleasures, its pains as well,' said her son, Anderson Cooper, seen bottom right with her. She was a mother, designer, philanthropist, writer, artist, and actress - a veritable Renaissance woman. Scandal marked Gloria's early life after her father Reginald Claypoole Vanderbilt, a drinker and gambler, frittered away his inheritance and died when she was just 18 months old. Too young to take control of her trust, her mother, Gloria Morgan, spent the money on herself and partied her way across Europe. Gloria's aunt, Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, sued for custody in 1934, earning her the nickname, 'poor little rich girl.' Vanderbilt married four times, and dated celebrities, such as Frank Sinatra, top right. Her family's fortune began with her great-great-great grandfather Cornelius Vanderbilt, top left, who built a shipping and railroad empire. When he died on January 4, 1877, his fortune was estimated to be $100 million.

Supporters turn out to mourn Mohamed Morsi after the ousted Egyptian president collapsed and died during his espionage trial - moments after telling court he could reveal 'many secrets' 

Supporters turned out in their masses last night to mourn the death of Egypt's ousted president Mohamed Morsi (left in court in 2016). The Muslim Brotherhood leader had risen to office in the country's first elections in 2012 and was ousted a year later by the military.

Mr Sage said: 'There were occasions when the fire alarm would go off in a lesson and I couldn't hear it. But now, Jovi comes into all of my classrooms. The boys love it, they always take a chance to go over to him and stroke him and even say goodbye to him at the end of the day. 'My job would definitely be a lot harder without him.

Revamped Top Gear team spray-paint the LGBT rainbow flag on cars used for filming in

Andrew 'Freddie' Flintoff, who hosts the show with Paddy McGuinness and Chris Harris, revealed they have decided against cutting the film from the new series. He said: 'We would never have filmed in Brunei had the law been announced beforehand. No one deserves to be stoned to death, whoever they love. Love is love'. But critics have pointed out that the country's implementation of strict sharia laws began in 2014 when crimes such as murder, terrorism, drug trafficking, arson, kidnap, treason and perjury became punishable by hanging or stoning. The last execution was in 2017 and around six people are understood to be on death row. Mr Flintoff said today: ' Even though it has since been claimed that the laws will not be enforced, the threat still stands, and even the threat is an appalling abuse of human rights'. Top Gear's statement has been hailed by campaigners, with many calling it a welcome change from the non-PC years when Top Gear was made by Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May, who moved to Amazon. But one critic said the car painting, however welcome, had 'the distinctive aroma of damage control'. Last night's Top Gear debut pulled in an average overnight audience of 2.5 million viewers, the BBC has said.

Eight brand new apartments on the water's edge at Poole Harbour have gone on the market for upwards of £1.3million, and four of them have already been snapped up within weeks of their launch. The luxury flats boast stunning views over Britain's most exclusive resort of Sandbanks with its Millionaire's Row (bottom right). Each of the flats has a balcony (top right) and direct access to the harbour via a jetty (top left), as well as being beautifully furnished inside (bottom left).

Mesmerising footage shows the moment divers find century-old shipwreck which claimed the lives of 14 crewmen - but the captain miraculously survived

A shipwreck (left) of a tug boat which was lost to the ocean a century ago has been found by a team of divers off the coast of South Australia. On July 9, 1917 the tug boat Nyora (pictured right 1917 and left 2019) was ferrying an American four masted motor sailing ship, the 'Astoria', back to Sydney when a wild storm caught them off the South Australian coastline. The video shows the century old shipwreck almost completely swallowed by the ocean floor after resting there for 102 years, its portholes still easily identifiable. As the two boats were 50km off of Cape Jaffa the Nyora started to list in heavy swell forcing the crew to cut the tow line in an attempt to save both vessels. Sadly the crew weren't able to save the Nyora after a large wave smashed into the engine room of the vessel and started to sing it stern first.
