Meghan Markle and Prince Harry became parents to their first child Archie Harrison in May 2019. It has never been confirmed whether the couple will attempt to have children again. But nevertheless; The former ‘Suits’ star is speculated to be pregnant and will confirm soon.

The tabloid, citing a source, stated: “It seems certain that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will join your family.”

The trial was to begin in London in January 2021.

It will soon be a year since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle left for the United States never to return. They announced it on January 18 after spending more than a month on vacation in Los Angeles, where they spent Christmas with Meghan’s mother instead of with the Royal Family, as had been tradition.

By Vanity Fair

Of course, before formally abandoning their life as royals, the Sussexes returned to the UK in March to say goodbye and finalize the deals for their long-awaited freedom, which was finally granted by Queen Elizabeth II in April. And since then, they have never seen each other again in person.

That is why all the British people were anxious to know how the next Christmas would go when Harry and Meghan had to return yes or yes to England. Although not for pleasure, but because on January 11 the trial that the dukes are holding against Associated Newspaper, which owns several tabloids, is scheduled to be held in London, which they accuse of publishing false information about them.

A legal battle that demands that the couple be present in the courtroom, something that in order to comply with it forces them to travel to England two weeks before the date of the trial to keep the corresponding quarantine that the British government requires of those who enter the country from United States.

But according to what has just been learned, finally that Christmas return could not take place. Well, the judge in charge of the case accepted the formal request that Harry and Meghan’s lawyers have sent to delay this meeting in court for several months.

Neuquén avoided payment of bond interest and expected to close renegotiation

This Tuesday the interests of the Tideneu (2025) for more than $ 13.7 million. With the announcement of not paying, Gutiérrez tries to get the creditors to accept the restructuring offer that expires this Friday. If successful, it will be the second province to close the swap, after Mendoza’s achievement last month. The Neuquén proposal is reduce the current interest, from 7.5%, starting with a 1% payment in 2021 to reach 5.75% only in 2023 and until its final maturity. Thus, with the swap, the Gutiérrez government seeks to release maturities for the next two years and postpone the final maturity dates until 2030. “A grace period of 30 days will be entered to do so and thus avoid default. The government’s intention is to pressure the bondholders so that on Friday they will adhere to the restructuring offer that has been negotiating since August, ”the province told Ambit.

Regarding bonds Ticade, the modification of the The proposal did not convince the ad hoc group that concentrates 38% of the titles, “But the dialogue is still open”, they mentioned in Neuquén dispatches to this newspaper. “It is the second proposal that we present: the interest coupons were improved, the amount to be paid in cash was increased and the royalties transferred were adjusted,” explained sources close to the governor.

The Ticade (bonds with guarantee of hydrocarbon royalties) yield an interest rate of 8.625% per year and it was intended to bring it to 7% on its maturity date with an even greater reduction in the first years.

In the Neuquén government they know that being tied to the production of hydrocarbons the renegotiation will be more arduous, since the Royalties pass to a trust that is destined for payment to bondholders, without going through the provincial accounts. Chubut, Tierra del Fuego and Salta face the same paradox.

The first district held a payment of US $ 39.6 million, more than $ 3,000 million at the official exchange rate, corresponding to the first amortization of a bond issued for US $ 650 million in 2016 by Mario Das Neves. The government of Mariano Arcioni it hopes to accelerate the reprofiling before January, when it will have to face another maturity. A similar situation occurs in the Fuegian administration of Gustavo Melella, which last week made a payment of about US $ 9 million corresponding to the last maturity of the year of a US $ 200 million bond placed in 2017 by Rosana Bertone. Now, it is advancing in the restructuring to reach an agreement before the next payment, which will be in January, and where the provincial government assures that they have already contacted 85% of the holders.

Salta, meanwhile, also seeks to renegotiate two titles of US $ 388 million guaranteed by royalties placed in the management of Juan Manuel Urtubey.
