Royal families do not usually have few members, so Meghan Markle and the prince harry They could be gearing up for the announcement of the arrival of a new royal baby.
According to British media reports, the Duchess of Sussex; who won a motion to delay the court battle with the British tabloid for a “confidential” reason, is pregnant and will confirm soon.
According to the report, the judge Mark Warby granted the delay after Meghan’s team gave a “confidential reason” for doing so.
With information from El Farandi
Shortly after the judge’s comments, royal fans began speculating about Meghan Markle’s pregnancy; as he won the bid for a confidential reason that was shared by his legal team in court.
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.”
Meghan would surely be delighted when she emerged victorious in her bid to have a privacy action against a tabloid newspaper postponed for about nine months until next fall.
The trial was to begin in London in January 2021.
Prince Harry’s wife is suing Associated Newspapers by articles in the Mail on Sunday which included parts of a handwritten letter he had sent to his father, Thomas Markle, in August 2018. “My conclusion is that the correct decision in all circumstances is to grant the request”, said the judge. “That means that the test date of January 11, 2021 will become vacant and the test will be rescheduled for a new date in the fall.”
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.
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.
From the Batmobile to the lizards of V, he Thriller by Michael Jackson o Star Wars. The all mighty Terminator or Venom. It is not necessary to refer to Hollywood to enter the universe of fiction and special effects. The Gallego brothers, Juan and Toni, both versatile artists and lovers of the big screen, make it a reality at El Morell. But not only that. Any idea worth its salt. From bodypainting to Carnival, through face painting, caricatures or all kinds of props.
«Attrezzista, they say. But I like more to say that I am a craftsman “, he says Juan, the eldest of the Gallego. Despite the fact that the two are united by the same passion and collaborate as a hobby or on request, the trajectories of both are disparate. The two of them drew when they were little, like any child, but up to there the parallels. Juan quickly He opted for sculpture, while his brother’s path was that of illustration and painting.
“Everything has to do with the show,” says Juan. «I started with bigheads and the beasts, until I got in contact with the Embruix Association and started working with different materials. Although I studied Fine Arts, I have always been self-taught because there are things that they don’t teach you, ”he says. PortAventura, the Carnival, the Seguici Popular, the Kings Parade or Halloween are important in its trajectory.
After passing through the Salou theme park, it was when he launched himself to create his own Art-Temàtic company, a workshop from which, for example, the Vibrieta petita and the Bou petit de Tarragona and the Cuca del Morell, in addition to some of the first prizes of the Tarragona Carnival.
One of the things we’ve done has been the Batman suit and the car, with the original measurements of the Batmobile, for the Disfressa d’Or. But in polystyrene because it had to weigh little ”, a disguise with which they won.
In this sense, Juan vindicates the need for copyright to be taken into account, «Since sometimes the sculptor is not even mentioned, especially on social networks», a fact that also happened with the mask of Voldemort and with the Xwing, of Star Wars.
«It was a gift from a troupe to Starraco Wars. It was white with glitter, so they asked me to paint it in another color more similar to the movie. It is black. Although now it is painted white because it was restored by other people later and they did not name my first intervention either.
The sculptor was precisely the mirror of his younger brother, although Toni he opted for the charcoal line and found in the drawing «a way of expressing myself because I was very shy». Another reference was Akira Toriyama and the manga. Then the romanticism of William Turner or the post-impressionism of Van Gogh; Drew Struzan or Tàpies.
Is specialized in portraits and with 17 years he already had a notable demand. After working in a thousand and one occupations, he decided to make his hobby official and it was at the Escola d’Art de Tarragona where he left his comfort zone. «I became interested in other techniques and styles. It was when I started to play more with brushes and paint ».
From here, a whole world: caricatures or face painting. The transition from paper to skin was made as a result of meeting Alexandra, from the Always company. «At first your pulse trembles and you are afraid to touch children’s faces, until you feel confident. I was especially fascinated when I saw children excited to see themselves painted. I could make someone else happy».
Then, naturally, came bodypainting with prostheses and accessories. «Finally I made it more formal and the company The da un aire It is a tribute to my father, who always said This gives an air to such and such, and we celebrated as a small intimate inauguration between him and me when everything began to take shape », says Toni.
Many are the ideas of these two brothers, but in any case, Toni remains with the emotions. “I am excited to do makeup everywhere, but especially in my town because I see the faces of the people I grew up with and I put makeup on their children. It wasn’t something that was planned. Came up suddenly».
A too stubborn Tarracus
Tarracus, the original, came out of Juan Gallego’s workshop. A brand new mascot with his 2017, the year that should have been celebrated Mediterranean Games in Tarragona. However, it was not easy for him to leave El Morell. “We made two heads,” says Juan. One couldn’t fit through the doors. And they still wanted it bigger. Afterwards, “they didn’t even invite us to their premiere,” the sculptor laments.
From ex-Blizzard they have announced the founding of Frost Giant Studios in Orange County, California.
Tim Morten, CEO of the company, was the chief producer of Starcraft 2: Legacy of the Void and has worked for the last six years in the company, although he has gone through numerous studies and has been involved in sagas such as Command & Conquer.
Tim Campbell, meanwhile, was the lead designer for the Warcraft 3: The Frozen Throne campaign and has since been involved in numerous projects, most recently Wasteland 3 as director.
The first round of financing has closed with 4.7 million dollars raised by various investors, including Riot Games.
The company’s first game will be an RTS (real-time strategy game) and its goal is for it to be the next great game in the genre.
It seems that new games based on the franchise are not being ruled out, with no sequel announced yet.
In July 2010 it was put on sale StarCraft 2, a game that has remained the dominant RTS as it was with its predecessor. Now, Blizzard announces the cessation of development of new content for this title, which means that we will not have more commanders or chests to buy. But that does not necessarily mean that he will die.
Of course, the lack of news will put off many players, but the servers will remain active as up to now and their developers have confirmed that we will continue to have updates with balance adjustments and bug fixes, “focusing primarily on what matters most to our core and competitive community.”
Qualifying this last point, Blizzard ensures that SC2 will continue to maintain its usual representation in the eSports scene from the hand of ESL Gaming and GSL. What about the IP as such? In the past, the Warcraft fathers had no qualms about listing their most relevant games for the future. Right now StarCraft doesn’t have a sequel on the horizon, but it seems that something like this is not ruled out.
Or at least, it is what can be read between the lines following the closing of the entry. Producer Rob Bridenbecker concludes, “We will keep you posted on any and all plans we have for future forays into the Koprulu sector.” In the absence of something more specific, we remind you that Blizzard has announced Overwatch 2 Y Diablo IV (plus the spin-off Immortal) as well as the imminent expansion Shadowlands WoW, so it will surely be a while until we see their next big game.
The event was organized by Fortune magazine and their participation was highly commented.
“There are very few things in this world where the person who is interacting with it is called a ‘user’. People addicted to drugs are called ‘users’ and people who use social networks, too, ”Meghan said in a section of her presentation.
“They are an addiction,” he added as a reinforcement to this idea and the main reason for his decision to have personal accounts. His ideas were powerful. However, later, a large number of his audience took to Twitter precisely to highlight that Prince Harry’s wife had taken her information from the documentary “The dilemma of social networks” from Netflix.
