London, Nov 24 (AP/UNB) — Like many a couple before them, Prince Harry and his wife Meghan are moving to the suburbs ahead of the anticipated birth of their first child.
Kensington Palace said Saturday that Harry and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, will move from Kensington Palace in central London to Frogmore Cottage, a house on the grounds of Windsor Castle, early next year.
The couple is expecting their first child in the spring. They married in a chapel on the Windsor Castle grounds in May.
Windsor is about 20 miles (32 kilometers) west of central London.
Harry and Meghan have been living at Kensington Palace since announcing their engagement last year. They will keep their office at that London palace.
New York, Nov 24 (AP/UNB) — The family of Kim Porter released a statement honoring her life a day after Thanksgiving, saying "although we've lost our best friend, God has gained a special angel and we know she is watching over us."
Porter, a former model and actress who was also the longtime former girlfriend of Sean "Diddy" Combs, died unexpectedly last week at age 47. Authorities haven't given a cause.
"God broke the mold when he made Kim, there was truly no other woman like her. Although her time here on earth was far too short, she lived a life full of purpose and meaning. She was a loving mother and devoted friend. She was the epitome of kindness and grace. There wasn't a person she met who's soul she did not touch. Kim was the type of woman who changed lives for the better," the Porter, Goodwin and Combs families say in a statement Friday to The Associated Press. "She will be forever remembered and missed by so many. As her family, we promise to honor her every day of our lives. We love you always."
Porter was the mother of three of Combs' children. Porter also has a son, actor-singer Quincy Brown, from a previous relationship with R&B singer Al B. Sure!
Her funeral will be held Saturday at Cascade Hills Church in Columbus, Georgia. Paramedics rushed to Porter's house last week after calls saying she was unresponsive. She was declared dead soon after they arrived.

Dhaka, Nov 22 (UNB) - The screening of ‘Zabardast’, an adventure film directed by Jérôme Toran, will be held at ‘Auditorium Nouvelle Vague’ of Alliance Française de Dhaka on Friday.
Alliance Française de Dhaka (AFD) is association with 'Audree' will arrange the screening at 5 pm.
The story is based on an intimate travel diary of an incredible free ride expedition into the heart of Karakoram Mountain range in the search for one of the most beautiful mountains to ski, Biacherahi, standing tall at 5880 metres.
An adventure is so remote, so high, so committed that a single mistake could be fatal. During the five-week-long expedition, the team went deeper and deeper into the core of one of the most hostile places on planet, pulling sledges with foods and mountaineering gears, tents, solar panels, and camera equipment across gigantic glaciers.
In addition to mountaineering and adventure, this film also portrays the spirit of travelling by showcasing the members' point of view on seeing new country, meeting new people, their culture and lifestyle.
Mountain based adventure community of Bangladesh ‘Audree’ is organising the screening to inspire the young generation on mountaineering and adventure.
Los Angeles, Nov 22 (AP/UNB) — "Spider-Man" star Tom Holland has tasted pumpkin seeds, but never actual pumpkin.
However, all that changed for the British actor during a recent Thanksgiving cooking lesson with "Avengers" co-director Joe Russo and chef Jessica Largey who introduced him to kabocha squash, a delicacy known as Japanese pumpkin.
The exclusive cooking lesson was held at Russo's new restaurant called Simone in the arts district of downtown Los Angeles.
"It's hard that I'm starting with probably the best pumpkin I'll ever have," Holland joked with The Associated Press.
Russo is a co-owner of the restaurant with Largey, a James Beard winner. She whipped up the dish with ingredients involving pumpkin, chanterelle mushrooms, passionfruit and some kale.
"That's so good, the passionfruit as well," Holland said before scooping up another spoonful. "And the kale is crunchy so there's a nice like textural thing."
After the taste test, the 22-year-old Holland told the chef "That was delicious. So, I'll come back tomorrow." The actor said he typically spends Thanksgivings in his native United Kingdom.
Largey gave Holland a few tips on how to make macaroni and cheese, one of the actor's favorite foods. She also said the pumpkin dish is one of Russo's favorite on the restaurant's menu.
Holland said he recently learned about a clever recipe on Instagram that calls for cheese to be placed at the bottom of a mug, then basil, tomato sauce and rigatoni are added, before another layer of cheese.
"You put a plate on, flip it that way and bake it. Then you take it off and you have a pasta pie — it's really good and it's super easy to do and it looks way more impressive than it actually is. That's my go-to."
Holland's "Spider-Man: Far From Home" is scheduled for release in July. Russo's next Avengers film is to be released in May.
