Who On Earth Wants The Title "Lord Lucan"?


It seems that Lord Lucan's son George Bingham will have to wait just a little while yet before he can call himself "Lord Lucan". The High Court case which will adjudge whether his dad, Lucky Lord Lucan, is truly, properly dead has been adjourned for a couple of months.

Though I've got a query for George.

He wants his dad declared so that he can have "closure".

Fair enough.

But he is also very keen to start calling himself Lord Lucan. "A name's just a name," he says.

And that - generally - is the case. A name is just a name.

Except if it happens to be one of the  most infamous names in the whole of British history.

When George is eventually allowed to introduce himself as "Lord Lucan", most people's first thought will be: "Your daddy's a murderer."

When Terrorists Attack: One Rule To Save Your Life


In the wake of the Paris terrorism attacks, I have been interviewing a number of security experts.

And... not that you're ever going to get caught up in a terrorist attack... (Because frankly you're much more likely to win the lottery.)

But just in case you are confronted by an ISIS gunman...

This is the one golden rule that might just save your life.

Lord Lucan Dead or Alive: A High Court Decides


Last week, I happened to make the simply unforgiveable error of stating Lord Lucan was dead.

Turns out he's not dead any more, he's merely just in legal limbo (a fate surely considerably worse than death), and a High Court will next month determine whether this K-k-k-krazy Kat is dead or alive.

I am predicting... fireworks.

Lord Lucan Officially Dead - But Is He Dead Dead?


It would seem that I have unwittingly become the world's leading expert on Lucky Lord Lucan. Whenever the Lucan story gets a fresh spin of the wheel, I am the go-to pundit of choice for the BBC.

The latest layer to be added to this mystery of mysteries is that as of today, Friday November 6, 2015, the Earl is officially DEAD.

Now - not that I necessarily want to get too rumbunctious about this, but...

Lucan may now be officially dead.

But is he Dead Dead?

The New Book - It's The Spare Heir Handbook!


Now that Princess Charlotte has been born, we have finally been able to press the print button for The Spare Heir Handbook - Prince Harry's very best tips for the new Royal Baby.

Got some cracking stories in there, including one terrific yarn which never quite made it into the papers. Until now.

Two years ago, just before Prince George was born, Princes Harry and Wills went up to Alnwick in Northumberland for a pal's wedding. The pair of them got right royally drunk and in the early hours Wills started fighting with some of the other guests. (This brawling is known as "hijinks" in the military - but only if it's among officers.)

Unfortunately, Wills got a front tooth knocked out - and it was a very, very tight-lipped Prince who left Alnwick the next morning as he was whisked off to the dentist to have a new front tooth put in.

How Harry must have wished he'd had a camera - because that picture of his bloodied brother would have gone right round the world! (And, for the first time, it would have been Wills who'd ended up with egg on his face rather than his hapless younger brother.)
