Prince Harry, who shocked Britain last year when he and his wife Meghan stepped back from royal duties, told U.S. interviewer Oprah Winfrey that he had worried about history repeating itself, according to excerpts released on Sunday. The CBS broadcast network released two brief clips from Winfrey's interview of the couple, which is scheduled to air on March 7. "My biggest concern was history repeating itself," Harry said, apparently referring to his mother Princess Diana, who was hounded by the British press and died at age 36 in a car crash in Paris after her divorce from Prince Charles.

Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador is expected to ask President Joe Biden to consider sharing part of the U.S. coronavirus vaccine supply with its poorer southern neighbor when the two leaders hold a virtual summit on Monday, U.S. and Mexican officials said. Biden is open to discussing the matter as part of a broader regional effort to cooperate in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic but will maintain as his “number one priority” the need to first vaccinate as many Americans as possible, a White House official told Reuters on condition of anonymity. Lopez Obrador has been one of the most vocal leaders in the developing world pressing the richest countries to improve poorer nations’ access to the vaccines.
Economic devastation caused by the coronavirus pandemic is driving up hunger in fragile countries and threatening famine, Britain's leading aid charities have warned. Thousands are likely to die this year as the knock-on effects of the world's 15-month-long struggle against Covid-19 have left people unable to afford food. The Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) coalition of UK aid agencies warns that parts of South Sudan and Yemen are now on the brink of famine, while Afghanistan and Democratic Republic of the Congo are at risk. Lockdowns have devastated livelihoods and cut the lifeline of foreign remittances, while travel restrictions have upended supply chains. In countries like Afghanistan, large numbers have been pitched into poverty just as food prices have soared. Many of the countries were already in dire humanitarian need before the pandemic, with years of war having crippled economies and health systems. The pandemic has made the situation worse. Yet humanitarian funding has dropped during the year as donor countries deal with their own outbreaks. Saleh Saeed, the DEC chief executive, said: “People living in places made perilous by conflict, violence and climate disasters are coping with the coronavirus pandemic as best they can, but the odds are stacked against them. The knock-on effects of the pandemic have crippled economies, making the world’s poorest people even poorer. “Without continued support, many lives will be lost – not just from Covid-19 itself, but from the economic impact of the virus.” The coalition, which includes charities such as Save the Children, British Red Cross, Oxfam, Christian Aid and 10 others, said senior staff in the field were increasingly alarmed by the fallout. A survey found almost all (98 per cent) said the pandemic had worsened the humanitarian crisis in their respective countries and three quarters said the situation was the worst they had seen it in the past decade. More than four-out-of-five said that, without increased funding, thousands are likely to die from hunger in 2021. The DEC also predicted that any vaccine roll outs in these countries will be slow and difficult “and will not be a panacea for all the effects of the pandemic on the world’s most vulnerable communities”. Since its launch in July, the DEC Coronavirus Appeal has raised £36 million, including £10 million in matched contributions from the UK Government.
Archaeologists have unearthed a unique ancient-Roman ceremonial carriage from a villa just outside Pompeii, the city buried in a volcanic eruption in 79 AD. The almost perfectly preserved four-wheeled carriage made of iron, bronze and tin was found near the stables of an ancient villa at Civita Giuliana, around 700 metres (yards) north of the walls of ancient Pompeii. Massimo Osanna, the outgoing director of the Pompeii archaeological site, said the carriage was the first of its kind discovered in the area, which had so far yielded functional vehicles used for transport and work, but not for ceremonies.

Kristi Noem’s harsh criticism of him on Sunday, saying her comments about him at this weekend’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) were “not very helpful” and “unfortunate.”Noem, who has received praise from conservatives for largely ignoring coronavirus restrictions and guidelines, got a standing ovation from the CPAC crowd when she boasted about ignoring the medical advice of experts and called out Fauci for supposedly being “wrong.” Appearing on CBS News’ Face the Nation, Fauci was asked if that sentiment was an impediment to the nation’s recovery.Kristi Noem Under Scrutiny for Using State Plane to Fly to NRA, Turning Points Meet-Ups“It’s unfortunate but it’s not really helpful because sometimes you think things are going well and just take a look at the numbers, they don’t lie,” he said.

So how can you justify making decisions that put the health of your constituents at risk?”Noem, meanwhile, brushed off the question, instead telling Brennan that “those are questions that you should be asking every other governor in this country as well.”FAUCI REACTS: Dr. Anthony Fauci responds to @govkristinoem's criticism at #CPAC that the veteran medical expert is "wrong" on hospital capacity and #COVID19 caseloads: "It's unfortunate but it's not really helpful… just take a look at the numbers they don't lie." pic.twitter.com/y9Xz30lsr0— Face The Nation (@FaceTheNation) February 28, 2021 Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.
