Why Prince William, Harry Never Talk About Their Step Siblings

Through her, two more people became unofficial members of the world’s most recognizable family, although they won’t be seen at the numerous royal functions that take place.

Peterborough's medical officer of health says the region's COVID-19 case trajectory is "deeply concerning" and he has not ruled out implementing a new face mask mandate to help to fight transmission.

He also noted concerns from the health-care system about the rise of hospitalized cases but also illness among staff. Peterborough Regional Health Centre as of Wednesday afternoon reported 24 inpatients with COVID-19 — up from 22 on Tuesday and 16 reported on Friday.

"We are at a concerning phase. None of us want to be here but I do not know what the next couple of weeks will bring," said Piggott. "But the trajectory we are on is deeply concerning."

The health unit's risk index on Wednesday puts the region at "high risk" again with case rate and PCR test positivity percentages at "very high."

"COVID-19 is not a mild illness; this still is no cold. This still is no flu," he said. "The severity is much worse and the concern too is with the longer-term impacts of the infection on people."

20 expert tips to help you find romance online

  20 expert tips to help you find romance online Are you a singleton looking for love? Rather than heading to a busy bar to seek out Mr. or Ms. Right, why not simply open your smartphone or laptop? Almost 50% of people know someone who has tried online dating. The myth that online dating leads to shallow, fleeting romances is just that: a myth. Research from the University of Chicago suggests that meeting online leads to happier, longer marriages than traditional dating. So, how do you find “the one” in the digital age?

With a number of celebrations this month (Easter, Ramadan, Passover), Piggott encouraged continued use of face masks, getting all eligible vaccine doses, using rapid antigen tests, gathering outdoors and physical distancing — especially if you are seeing people more at risk to COVID-19 such as the elderly, immunocompromised or unvaccinated.

"It's really important to think about the other people you are seeing and the other activities you are doing," he said. "Because your decisions and your activities could put others at risk. Even if you do not have symptoms, you could still transmit the infection. Rapid antigen tests and staying home if you are sick continues to be critically important so that we can diagnose and stop the spread of this infection."

Piggott also noted for those eligible to consider Pfizer’s anti-viral COVID-19 pill Paxlovid. Assessments for adults with mild to moderate COVID-19 are conducted at PRHC to see if an individual qualifies. The drug can only be prescribed within the first five days after symptoms of COVID-19 begin.

Prince Charles was issued stark warning ahead of rare TV interview

  Prince Charles was issued stark warning ahead of rare TV interview PRINCE CHARLES was issued a stark warning ahead of a rare television interview, a royal expert has claimed.Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall spent two days in the Republic of Ireland last week. The royal couple visited the Rock of Cashel, one of Tipperary's and Ireland's most iconic sites. On her historic visit to Ireland 11 years ago, the Queen was memorably photographed at the iconic site.

Piggott is "strongly recommending" people wear face masks and says it remains an effective tool to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

When asked if he would consider implementing a local mask-wearing mandate, Piggott said he would prefer to see the province resume legislation similar to under the Reopening Ontario Act. The act superseded any legislation health units had initially enacted in the early stages of the pandemic such as Section 22 orders of the Health Protection and Promotion Act.

"Right now, what we're trying to do is strongly recommend people put their masks back on," he said. "But ideally this kind of an issue is solved through provincial legislation — not local Section 22 orders in response."

Prince Andrew escorting the Queen at Prince Philip's memorial service was the monarch's decision — and reports say she went against Prince William and Charles to do it

  Prince Andrew escorting the Queen at Prince Philip's memorial service was the monarch's decision — and reports say she went against Prince William and Charles to do it Prince William and Prince Charles were "dismayed" to see Prince Andrew accompany the Queen to the service, a source told the Daily Mail.They were photographed traveling by car together to Westminster Abbey and were the final royals to arrive. All eyes appeared to be on the monarch as she held on to Andrew's arm on the walk to her seat in the front row. Andrew later took a seat on a different aisle from where the Queen, Prince Charles, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, and Princess Anne were sitting.

"It is nonetheless something I am considering," he said. "But it comes with significant challenges and implications. It is something we are looking at and we would consider.

"But at this stage, it is not ideal. But I hope with the revolving context, there will be provincial consideration of the precautions that are needed in the context of mitigating the sixth wave."

Piggott also said he's "quite concerned" about "significant transmission" in school settings within the health unit's jurisdiction of Peterborough, Peterborough County, Hiawatha First Nation and Curve Lake First Nation.

He said a "significant" number of students are absent from school due to COVID-19. Since last week alone, he noted seven schools have exceeded the absence thresholds in a "concerning way." In January the province said schools had to report absences of more than 30 per cent to public health units, which Piggott acknowledged was the situation locally.

Piggott noted letters were sent to families of two schools recommending that for any student or staff who are not fully vaccinated that stay home for a period of five days. Piggott would not identify the schools.

"This is to both protect from onwards transmission — because people who are fully vaccinated will have less risk of onwards transmission. It's also to protect them — to protect the student that has not yet had the chance to have the vaccine and is not themselves protected."

According to the province's database, the following schools in the health unit's jurisdiction as of Tuesday, April 5 reported over 30 per cent absenteeism among students and staff:

Kawartha Heights Public School in Peterborough: 43.2 per cent

Queen Elizabeth Public School in Peterborough: 41.5 per cent

Hastings Public School in Hastings: 30.5 per cent

Other schools on Tuesday reporting between 20 to 30 per cent absence:

Chemong Public School in Bridgenorth 21.2 per cent

Hillcrest Public School in Campbellford: 21.8 per cent

Northshore Public School in Keene: 26.6 per cent

Prince of Wales Public School in Peterborough: 23.1 per cent

Westmount Public School in Peterborough: 19.6 per cent

The Stunning Transformation Of Prince Edward .
As the youngest of Queen Elizabeth's children, Prince Edward has kept a lower profile than his older siblings. Read on to see his stunning transformation.But that changed when he married Sophie Rhys-Jones, and they both left their careers to become working royals. These days, Prince Edward works full time for the crown, making trips abroad and serving as the patron of several organizations. While he has made a few PR blunders along the way, Prince Edward has now positioned himself as a fairly down-to-earth, low-key member of the royal family, and his popularity has steadily increased over the last few years as his role in the royal family has grown.
