Prince Harry's engagement ring for Meghan Markle will honor Princess Diana, report says

Prince Harry may have come up with a touching way to honor his late mother, Princess Diana, with his engagement ring for his fiancee, American actress Meghan Markle.

>> Prince Harry engaged to Meghan Markle

Us Weekly reported Friday that Prince Harry will not choose a family heirloom for Markle’s engagement ring as his brother Prince William did for Duchess Kate. Instead, he’s reportedly commissioned a new, very special ring for her, according to royal sources. The ring, however, won’t completely lack family history, as it will reportedly feature diamonds from a brooch that once belonged to Princess Diana.

The news comes after several jewelry experts made predictions about what kind of ring Prince Harry will choose.

Meanwhile, David Law told the Daily Express in October that incorporating smaller diamonds around the ring’s main stone may be the route he chooses, saying, “Looking back throughout history, royals have frequently chosen a ring featuring diamonds around the center stone.”

Billy Baldwin claims Donald Trump hit on his wife, Chynna Phillips

Donald Trump Jr. has been active on Twitter when it comes to pointing out allegations of sexual misconduct against certain public figures such as Democratic Sen. Al Franken. The president's oldest child did just that Wednesday, pointing out that two more women had come forward with allegations against Franken:

Actor Billy Baldwin shot back at Trump Jr. with an insult aimed at the president's own alleged sexual misconduct over the years. He accused the elder Trump of showing up uninvited to a party at the Plaza Hotel over two decades ago and hitting on his then-girlfriend, Chynna Phillips, who has been married to Baldwin since 1995.

Baldwin said Trump invited Phillips on his helicopter to Atlantic City.

Billy is the brother of actors Alec, who plays the Trump character on “Saturday Night Live,” and Stephen Baldwin.

The New York Daily News reported that a man who attended the party said Baldwin was hosting an intimate get-together in a Plaza hotel room for Phillips’ birthday when Trump unexpectedly knocked on the door.

At the time, Trump owned the hotel and often showed up at parties there until he was forced to sell the hotel after declaring bankruptcy in November 1992.

“Trump came barging in and started saying, ‘Let’s get in my helicopter; let’s blow this party and get out of here,'” the party guest told the Daily News.

He said there were only about five people in the room at the time, and they started to become uncomfortable as Trump continued.

“He tried to coerce her into getting in his helicopter,” the party guest told the Daily News. “[Phillips] laughed uncomfortably at the prospect and said thanks but no thanks.”

The party guest said that once Trump realized it was not a raging party, he lost interest.

“He left with his tail between his legs,” the person told the newspaper. “He was in the room for maybe 10 minutes.”

The White House declined to comment, the paper said.

Since Trump announced his campaign, several women have come forward with allegations of sexual harassment against him.

Many of the accusers claim Trump forced himself on them, groped or kissed them without consent; however, Trump has denied the accusations and threatened to sue the women.

Last week, Trump faced criticism for continuing to endorse Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, who has been accused by at least nine women of sexually harassing or assaulting them, including women who were 14 years old at the time.

A tradition in California since 1975, the annual dawn festivities, also known as Unthanksgiving Day, commemorate the occupation of Alcatraz by American Indians from November 1969 to June 1971, Newsweek reported. During that time, 89 American Indian activists and leaders occupied the island and former penitentiary and demanded it be turned into an Indian cultural center and school.

Kaepernick, who remains an unsigned free agent, spoke to the thousands gathered on the island, the Chronicle reported. His words evoked cheers and applause.

“Our fight is the same fight,” Kaepernick told the crowd, in a message he also posted on Twitter. “We’re all fighting for our justice, for our freedom. And realizing that we are all in this fight together makes us all the more powerful.”

Kaepernick has been criticized by President Donald Trump for refusing to stand during the national anthem as a protest against racism in the U.S.
