ROBERT HARDMAN writes about the billionaire crown prince of partying

ROBERT HARDMAN: This week, it was announced that the Prince had passed away, unmarried, at the age of 38 after what was reported as a long illness. But while Azim might often try to be the fun-loving Prince Charming figure on the celebrity circuits of London and Hollywood, this particular fairytale was not destined for a happy ending.He died in his homeland, mourned at the sprawling, fountain-filled royal complex outside the Bruneian capital of Bandar Seri Begawan and buried on the same day, according to custom.(funeral inset). His funeral was attended by his immediate family but not by the bewildering constellation of associates he had come to regard as friends.(pictured left with Naomi Campbell and right with Joan Collins)

FIFTY Northern Tory MPs demand a 'roadmap out of lockdown': Boris Johnson faces a 'red

A letter to Boris Johnson from the Northern Research Group - a newly-launched alliance of Tory MPs led by ex-Northern Powerhouse minister Jake Berry - outlines the group's demands, which include a tailored economic recovery plan for the north. Mr Berry says that the virus could widen the North-South divide and 'send the North into reverse'. His group is now calling for Mr Johnson to 'level-up the North' - something the PM claimed he would do following sweeping Conservative gains in the region in the General Election. It comes as around 8million people in England face living under the toughest Covid-19 restrictions by the end of the week after officials confirmed four separate parts of Nottinghamshire will be thrust into a Tier Three lockdown from midnight on Wednesday, following three days of crunch talks with the Government.

A new study from the University of Maryland School of Medicine found that patients in the aspirin group were 43% less likely to be admitted to the ICU and 44% less likely to need ventilators.

George and Amal Clooney 'claimed they didn't know Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at the

Writing in AirMail, Rachel Johnson reveals there's a 'story going around' that George and Amal Clooney confessed they didn't know the Duke and Duchess of Sussex moments before the royal wedding. Hollywood actor George, 39, and human rights barrister Amal, 42, reportedly made the revelation to Carolyn Bartholomew, Princess Diana's former flatmate and Prince Harry's godmother.

Prince Harry spoke to Black Lives Matter activist Patrick Hutchinson who famously rescued protester Bryn Male during London race violence in June went viral around the world.

The Duchess of Sussex, 39, has found criticism that she is wading into politics 'difficult' because she feels her comments are 'relatively uncontroversial', a source told Elle.com's Carolyn Durand.

Harry and Meghan recorded podcast at luxury $400 an hour beachfront rental property 

Harry and Meghan recorded a podcast about teenage mental health at a luxury $400 an hour beach front rental property, DailyMail.com can reveal. They were photographed chatting to high school kids from Teenager Therapy in support of World Mental Health Day earlier this month. Harry and Meghan couple, speaking into microphones, were seen sitting on a sofa in front of a stone fireplace across from the teens. There was widespread speculation it gave another glimpse inside the couple's sprawling $14 million Montecito mansion. But the podcast episode was recorded at a rental property overlooking Miramar Beach in Montecito, a short drive from the royals' new home. The craftsman style house can be hired out for filming and photo shoots at $400 an hour for a minimum of three hours. Past shoots include Ralph Lauren, Serena and Lily, Free People, and an interview with Prince Harry and Meghan'.

Carlos Vinodchandra Racitalal allegedly carried out the knife assaults in Belgrave, Leicester, by approaching from behind - similar to 'commando-type killings' seen in the movies, a court heard.

Chancellor is locked in a blame game with Education Secretary Gavin Williamson

Allies of Rishi Sunak (left) furiously hit out at suggestions that he was responsible for blocking the extension of the free school meals scheme last night. Instead, they pointed the finger at Gavin Williamson (right), the Education Secretary, who they insisted had not put forward a spending proposal for approval. It came as Mr Sunak became the target of online attack adverts which blamed him for the Government's refusal to perform a U-turn.

ANDREW PIERCE: Attacked by all sides, Rishi Sunak is paying price of popularity 

The events of the past 48 hours and the brutal attacks unleashed on social media will have bemused the former Goldman Sachs banker - but they certainly won't have fazed him, writes ANDREW PIERCE. If anything, they add yet more lustre to the legend that Sunak and his team are nurturing. Few voters had heard of Sunak when Boris Johnson promoted him to the second most powerful job in Government last February. His City career makes Sunak one of the wealthiest members of the Cabinet in his own right - with a £7 million London home, a £1.5 million estate in Yorkshire and a holiday home in California. He is also married to billionaire's daughter Akshata Murthy. That makes him an easy target for Labour apparatchiks such as Adam McNicholas with his One Rule For Them campaign (pictured).

The Runners Centre in Lancaster has barred local MP David Morris after he voted not to extend free school meals over half term, while The Globe, a pub in Pembrokeshire, has banned two Tory MPs.

More than 800 former judges and legal figures signed a letter calling on the Home Secretary, and Boris Johnson, to apologise for their 'hostility' toward the profession.

PIERS MORGAN: A phone call I received from a fired-up Trump should be a warning to

President Trump called me for a chat on Saturday. It was our first conversation since he unfollowed me on Twitter in April after I wrote a Mail column telling him to 'Shut the f*ck up Mr President,' because he suggested people should be injected with bleach to cure coronavirus. Since then, I have relentlessly hammered him for his woeful handling of the pandemic that has now led to over 220,000 Americans dying from Covid-19, by far the worst death toll in the world. So, when the White House switchboard rang to say 'Mr Morgan, we have the president for you', I was bracing myself for some full-bore Trump bombast of the 'loser!' and 'idiot!' type he unleashes on anyone who dares to criticize him. But instead, we ended up having a cordial free-rolling 25-minute exchange which gave me a fascinating insight into the mindset of the world's most powerful man as he heads into the biggest week of his life.

Donald Trump got his third Supreme Court Justice with just a week to go until election day, meaning the 48-year-old could be deciding on voting cases even before November 3.

President Donald Trump's policies can fix what Black people are 'complaining about,' White House adviser and presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner said Monday morning on 'Fox & Friends.'

Did you mean me, Joe? Trump puts the boot in after Jill Biden has to whisper his name under her breath when 'Sleepy' Joe tells virtual rally: 'We need to stop four more years of George' (but did he mean Bush Snr or Jnr?)

Donald Trump has mocked 'Sleepy' Joe Biden for forgetting who was the president and saying 'we need to stop four more years of George.' 'Joe Biden called me George yesterday. Couldn't remember my name. Got some help from the anchor to get him through the interview. The Fake News Cartel is working overtime to cover it up!' Trump tweeted this morning. Biden was last night addressing a virtual concert when he said: 'Four more years of George, er, George, er, he - we're going to find ourselves in a position where, if Trump gets elected, we're going to be in a different world.' The 77-year-old appeared to receive a prompt from his wife Jill who was sitting beside him, muttering 'Trump' under her breath. Many speculated that Biden was thinking of George W. Bush, president from 2001-09, or perhaps George H.W. who was in office from 1989-93. The blunder will once again raise questions about the 77-year-old's mental capacity - a topic President Donald Trump has repeatedly referenced in the run-up to the election. 

Prince Azim, the sixth child of the Sultan of Brunei and fourth in line to the country's throne, died on Saturday at the age of 38 following 'prolonged treatment for a serious illness', state media said.

Months after falling ill with the virus, puppeteer Matthew Corbett has had to move home

Sooty puppeteer Matthew Corbett first experienced symptoms of Covid-19 when he popped down to the cellar to fetch a bottle of wine on his birthday. As he came up the stairs on March 28, just days after the start of lockdown, the 72-year-old started to sweat, feel dizzy and was suddenly convinced there was a huge party going on in his home.

Mark Drakeford says stores can use 'discretion' on non-essential items

Sales of all non-essential items have been banned under Wales's firebreak lockdown in a bid to discourage people from spending more time than necessary in shops and be fair to retailers who have to shut. However, the restrictions have caused outrage after alcohol is deemed 'essential' but school uniform, vacuum cleaners, hairdryers are not. And today, images from a Tesco store in Cardiff (left) showed a shelf stacked with baby formula milk by a sign saying 'non-essential' items cannot be sold. Mother-of-two Michelle Morgan-Davies, 31, (inset top) said: 'Formula milk is the definition of essential. Stirring up worry like this will only cause mums to panic buy in the shops that are selling it.' Another image showed sanitary products caged off from members of the public in a Tesco store today (right). Labour leader Mark Drakeford (inset bottom) and his team have risked compounding the chaos by saying that shops can now use their 'discretion'.

'Sorry to spoil the party': Moment a church service is stopped by police as worshippers are told they breaking strict lockdown rules in Wales

Churchgoers filled the packed church yesterday despite 'firebreak' rules banning gatherings including religious ceremonies from taking place. Naomi Mclennan filmed the moment officers entered the New Hope Community Church in Llanrumney, Cardiff, and told worshippers they had to leave. The video shows a police officer telling the congregation that members of the public have told them about the alleged breach of coronavirus regulations.

Moment police kick man out of Bluewater shopping centre for not wearing face mask despite his 'medical exemption'

The video shows a man accusing a Kent Police officer (right) of 'discrimination' as he is herded off the premises of Bluewater shopping centre in Dartford (bottom inset). The man, a musician known as Danny G (left), was filmed repeatedly offering to show his exemption to officers and security staff during the altercation last Thursday. However, they warn him he is 'trespassing' and say he 'needs to go' because he is 'an aggressive problem' who is 'disregarding a police officer'. Danny can be heard saying that he has a medical exemption for not wearing a face mask, which is mandatory in shopping centres and stores as well as licensed premises and hospitality venues, public transport, railway stations and airports. Official Covid-19 guidance provides legal exemptions from not wearing masks, and says that people with an 'age, health or disability reason for not wearing a face covering should not be routinely asked to give an written evidence of this'.

Downing Street today urged parents to show 'common sense' on Halloween this weekend as the Government said trick-or-treating can go ahead as long as people stick to coronavirus rules.

It suggests the group at highest risk of serious illness and death from the disease could be protected if given the jab. The health secretary said the UK could have a jab by Christmas.

It was the downfall of Frank Bough (and the wife who stood by him) that was such a tale of

Like Icarus in a Pringle sweater, he had flown too close to the sun. Or, to be precise, too close to the News of the World, which in 1988 revealed Frank Bough's participation, clad in female lingerie, in a string of parties featuring cocaine and prostitutes. And then, suddenly, he was no longer respectable and was gone from our screens for ever, although he was never abandoned by his faithful, long-suffering wife, Nesta (pictured together left circa 1980). Bough was the consummate broadcaster who emerged from a more gentle sporting age. Today, rolling news and sports coverage are wallpaper to our lives. But it was Bough, who died last week aged 87, (pictured recently, inset) and a handful of other presenters who blazed a trail in live TV with his ability to hold our attention through those long, wet afternoons.

The 7th Baron Feversham, 52-year-old Jasper Orlando Slingsby Duncombe, who lives in Wiltshire, was accused of driving his blue two-litre Audi without reasonable consideration.

Storm the Andromeda! How our SBS heroes swooped on a group of 'hijackers' on an oil tanker

It was a ten-hour standoff at sea that culminated in nine minutes of ruthless, military precision. Special Boat Service commandos used a classic pincer movement to storm the Nave Andromeda. Two heavily-armed squads, wearing night vision goggles and thermal imaging equipment, rappelled down ropes from choppers at either end of the tanker before converging on seven Nigerian stowaways who quickly surrendered.

Hugh Grant's a tired old plodder... but Nicole Kidman is a real thriller: CHRISTOPHER STEVENS reviews The Undoing

You have to wonder why Hugh Grant does it. The 60-year-old has been declaring airily for decades that he detests acting, writes CHRISTOPHER STEVENS. It's his favourite headline-grabber whenever an interview is flagging. 'I hate it quite a lot, all acting,' he bragged to Vanity Fair back in 2003, and last year he was still saying it - telling fellow thesp Matthew McConaughey: 'It's so boring. I'm a miserable human being on a film set.' What he particularly loathes, he says, is the way 'I repeated myself almost identically about 17 times in a row'. Yet here he is again (main alongside Nicole Kidman), in The Undoing (Sky Atlantic), playing a loveably flustered Englishman. The drama is pacy, suspenseful and resists the temptation to leap back and forwards through the story, instead letting events build to nerve-racking cliffhangers. Whether she's fussing with the food blender, power-walking to a meeting or just taking a shower, Miss Kidman (also pictured right) cannot be bettered as the ultra-competitive mother who cannot switch off her perfectionist instincts.

JAN MOIR hands out her own gongs for morning TV shows

JAN MOIR: Some naysayers claim daytime is a cultural desert, a place where brain cells go to die. According to the comedian Michael McIntyre, daytime television is a wasteland of Activia yoghurts, Michael Bublé and anti-chafing cream - and let's just hope that these three things are in no way related. The reality, however, is that much-mocked daytime television is booming - attracting bigger and bigger audiences far beyond the stereotypical bored housewives drinking gin from their teacups and jobless graduates. However, is just one measly Bafta enough to reflect the many splendours of daytime TV? It rather smacks of tokenism. That's why I have introduced my very own JANNIES (Jan's Academy of Nobodies Nattering In Entertainment Siberia) to honour this world.

Post-mortem examinations found premature Holly suffered at least three separate brain injuries and 12 rib fractures before she died. Roe, 33, and his former partner Tate (left and top inset), 22, both deny murdering Holly. They are both also accused of allowing the other to kill her.

Venetian plague island at the home of the world's first quarantines

The island of Poveglia has been deserted and closed to visitors for decades, its dilapidated hospital buildings frozen in time, its imposing fort now abandoned and its rumoured mass graves still hidden. Its grisly past covers both the thousands of plague victims thought to have died there and the lobotomies reputed to have occurred there when the hospital served as a mental asylum in the 1920s. The island at the gateway to Venice was one of those used to shield the city from the plagues which wiped out millions over the centuries, most notably in the 1340s Black Death which killed as much as half of Europe's population.

Meryl Streep's 'racist' nephew, 31, is filmed allegedly beating Hispanic student, 18, in American road rage attack

Footage obtained by DailyMail.com shows the road rage attack Meryl Streep's nephew launched on David Peralta, 18, in East Hampton on August 24. The teenager was hospitalized with severe head trauma and needed emergency surgery after the altercation. The video shows Peralta bringing Streep down with a judo-style shoulder throw, but heavier Streep quickly regains control of the situation. Streep can be seen putting Peralta in a choke hold, then dragging him from the ground while the younger man hangs limp and unconscious. Streep then hoists Peralta's body upwards before throwing him back down with some force. When Peralta regained consciousness, he was bruised and bloodied on the ground and Streep was already returning to his own vehicle. Streep was seen for the first time last month since the incident on the balcony of his New York apartment in trendy SoHo. Peralta gave his first account of the alleged attack an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com, saying the 31-year-old was 'racist'. Streep has been charged with felony counts of second-degree assault and second-degree strangulation and released on a $5,000 bail.
