The Queen should have marked the 67th anniversary of her Coronation this week but has been isolating in Windsor Castle - so what does this mean for her upcoming birthday celebrations?

And is the Countess of Sussex stepping into Meghan's shoes? She was seen helping the Duchess of Cambridge out with her special photography project 'Hold Still'.
