Fashion conspiracy: Does Prince Harry only own one pair of shoes?

<p>The Duke of Sussex has had a busy few months in the spotlight since the birth of his first son, Archie.</p> <p>However, it seems not even a swarm of cameras could pick up this odd fashion choice by Prince Harry that has seemed to be a constant for the royal for the last few months.</p> <p>Royal fans noticed something strange about the Duke of Sussex when a beautiful photograph of him and his family at the christening of first son Archie’s baptism was shared.</p> <p>It wasn’t just the adorable photo of Archie that kept fans on their toes, or the beautiful smile that graced Harry's wife Duchess Meghan that got people talking – it was a pair of suede brown brogues that was spotted on the Duke’s feet.</p> <p>On Twitter, fans pointed out Prince Harry had been wearing the same particular pair of shoes for the past few months.</p> <p>“Prince Harry’s offhand manner of dressing for his son and heir’s first official outing. Is this the exact same suit and suede shoes he wore when he showed the world his son?” one eagle-eyed fan wrote.</p> <p>Another tweet read: “Prince Harry is wearing exactly the same suit, brown desert boots, white shirt as he wore to present Archie.”</p> <p>“On an unrelated note, could the Duchess of Sussex do something about how sloppy her husband Prince Harry looks?” a snarky comment read.</p> <p>“Start with burning those ugly a** worn out brown shoes.”</p> <p>It appears Prince Harry has been wearing the same brown pair of shoes for a while now – dating back to October 2018 when he visited Sussex with his wife.</p> <p>The Duke was also spotted in the shoes when he and Duchess Meghan touched down in Casablanca airport in February.</p> <p>A few days later, the royal member was sporting the brogues again while the couple visited Rabat in Morocco.</p> <p>The royal has proven a pair of shoes can take you a long way.</p> <p>Scroll through the gallery above to see the number of times Prince Harry has been spotted sporting his favourite brown pair of shoes.</p>

Waleed Aly's challenge after Adam Goodes' documentary

<p>Waleed Aly has weighed in on the controversy surrounding Adam Goodes after the controversial documentary addressing the bullying and racism the former Sydney Swans star faced in Australia sparked an outpouring of emotion and support.</p> <p><em>The Final Quarter</em>, which was aired on Thursday night on Channel 10, showed the booing and abuse Goodes dealt with over the last three seasons of his career, leading him into an early retirement.</p> <p>In the special late-night edition of <a rel="noopener" href="https://10daily.com.au/news/sport/a190717fgbdv/adam-goodes-was-failed-by-the-game-and-fans-he-loved-20190718" target="_blank"><em>The Project</em></a> that followed the documentary, Aly spoke with indigenous representatives and media and sporting figures to discuss the issue.</p> <p>“It was a difficult thing to go through ... what should have been a spectacular finish to an incredible career is just extremely sad,” said Jude Bolton, former Sydney Swans player and teammate.</p> <p>Chip Le Grand, journalist at <em>The Australian,</em> said the doco demonstrated how “a lot of us don’t seem to even know racism when we see it”.</p> <p>He criticised the AFL’s failure to step in and defend Goodes.</p> <p>“They just needed someone to clearly stand up, and it was [Chief Executive Officer] Gillon McLachlan’s time, in that instance, to just say: ‘Look, yes, it is complicated but, clearly, race is a part of this, it’s a big part of this, it’s ugly and it has to stop’,” he said.</p> <p>Aly closed the discussion by making a statement on what the nation should do from this point.</p> <p>“It seems that what began as personal torment for Adam quickly became a national controversy,” Aly said.</p> <p>“The question now really is whether it can become a productive national conversation. And the answer to that question rests with each of us.”</p> <p>The AFL released an apology on the same day of the film premiere.</p> <p>“Adam, who represents so much that is good and unique about our game, was subject to treatment that drove him from football. The game did not do enough to stand with him and call it out,” the statement said.</p> <p>“We apologise unreservedly for our failures during this period.</p> <p>“Failure to call out racism and not standing up for one of our own let down all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander players, past and present.”</p>

Did Novak Djokovic just reignite his feud with Nick Kyrgios? His subtle swipe

<p>Novak Djokovic has kept a cool head as he’s ignored Nick Kyrgios’ podcast taunts. However, as Wimbledon is now over, it appears all bets are off.</p> <p>The back-to-back Wimbledon champion has shown a hint of his true feelings towards the Australian tennis player.</p> <p>Vocal tennis legend John McEnroe was quoted from a BBC Radio interview, where he declared that Kyrgios would be a top five player on the planet if he was able to keep his efforts consistent and honest.</p> <p>“Is he good for the game? Yes he’s good for the game,” McEnroe told <em>BBC Radio 5</em>.</p> <p>“Does he sell tickets? Yes. I can’t handle the fact that he only tries half the time. We can’t support that anymore. I don’t think he should be out there anymore unless he gives an honest effort — that’s my personal opinion.</p> <p>“The guy would be top five in the world for sure if he was able to do it [give honest effort]. He’s got an incredible – this is my opinion – fear of failure. He doesn’t even allow himself to train hard enough to give himself a chance.</p> <p>“You saw what he is capable of, he was driving Nadal crazy, it was the best second-round match, one of the best matches of the whole tournament. But when he plays guys he’s supposed to beat, he doesn’t even show up.”</p> <p>UK tennis site tennissportwalkin republished his comments on their Instagram and Djokovic liked the post.</p> <blockquote style="background: #FFF; border: 0; border-radius: 3px; box-shadow: 0 0 1px 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.5),0 1px 10px 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.15); margin: 1px; max-width: 540px; min-width: 326px; padding: 0; width: calc(100% - 2px);" class="instagram-media" data-instgrm-captioned="" data-instgrm-permalink="https://www.instagram.com/p/B0BCHp6glAm/" data-instgrm-version="12"> <div style="padding: 16px;"> <div style="display: flex; flex-direction: row; align-items: center;"> <div style="background-color: #f4f4f4; border-radius: 50%; flex-grow: 0; height: 40px; margin-right: 14px; width: 40px;"></div> <div style="display: flex; flex-direction: column; flex-grow: 1; justify-content: center;"> <div style="background-color: #f4f4f4; border-radius: 4px; flex-grow: 0; height: 14px; margin-bottom: 6px; width: 100px;"></div> <div style="background-color: #f4f4f4; border-radius: 4px; flex-grow: 0; height: 14px; width: 60px;"></div> </div> </div> <div style="padding: 19% 0;"></div> <div style="display: block; height: 50px; margin: 0 auto 12px; width: 50px;"></div> <div style="padding-top: 8px;"> <div style="color: #3897f0; font-family: Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 14px; font-style: normal; font-weight: 550; line-height: 18px;">View this post on Instagram</div> </div> <p style="margin: 8px 0 0 0; padding: 0 4px;"><a style="color: #000; font-family: Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 14px; font-style: normal; font-weight: normal; line-height: 17px; text-decoration: none; word-wrap: break-word;" rel="noopener" href="https://www.instagram.com/p/B0BCHp6glAm/" target="_blank">🗣🎾 @johnmcenroeofficial felt @k1ngkyrg1os could make himself a fortune if he changed his mentality. . . . .

“It upset me”: Amanda Keller opens up about why Tom Gleeson’s Logies speech struck a nerve

<p>Amanda Keller has spoken out about comedian Tom Gleeson’s controversial Gold Logie win, and admitted that she was “upset” by parts of his speech.</p> <p>Gleeson, who hosts ABC’s <em>Hard Quiz</em> won the Gold Logie at the Logie Awards, after a satirical political style campaign as he targeted fellow nominees with short adverts outlining why he should win. No nominee was safe.</p> <p>It didn’t help that Gleeson ruffled feathers with his acceptance speech of the awards.</p> <p>“Just because all of you want it and I’ve got it, don’t get angry with me. It’s all right, you’ll all survive. It’s a shame this is the last Gold Logie that’s ever going to be handed out — according to Grant Denyer, I’ve ruined the Logies. But at least I won this all by myself,” he said according to <a rel="noopener" href="https://www.news.com.au/entertainment/awards/logies/amanda-keller-admits-tom-gleesons-gold-logie-speech-upset-her/news-story/cc5277821822a1fc1cba650e5efc21e5" target="_blank">news.com.au</a>.</p> <p>“Do you know what would have been weirder? If I campaigned for this award sincerely … Imagine me just sincerely saying I was humbled by the award. I wouldn’t be able to live with myself. It would make me want to vomit.”</p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"> <p dir="ltr">Massive thank you to everyone who voted! Last night, I was mostly showing off to you at home.

Thank you again. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Gleeson4Gold?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Gleeson4Gold</a> <a href="https://t.co/N4d6tXNZky">pic.twitter.com/N4d6tXNZky</a></p> — Tom Gleeson (@nonstoptom) <a href="https://twitter.com/nonstoptom/status/1145583828703928320?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">July 1, 2019</a></blockquote> <p>Keller addressed the dig on the first Jonesy and Amanda show since the Logies, and admitted that while she understood the comedic angle, Gleeson made a joke about everyone who works hard in the television industry.</p> <p>“I think in his speech when he said, ‘everyone who works in TV, if you want to win this you’re a big wanker’, pretty much, and that upset me because he was mean to (last year’s Gold Logie winner) Grant (Denyer) I felt,” she told WSFM co-host Brendan “Jonesy” Jones. </p> <p>“He said, ‘Yeah I won it last year for Grant, and sucker, now I’ve done it on my own for me.’</p> <p>“That’s not fair to Grant, he won that last year on his own two feet. And people that have won in the past — Carrie Bickmore changed the world, she’s raised $10 million for brain cancer research. Grant spoke about redemption. Waleed Aly spoke about inclusiveness.”</p> <p>The day after he won, Gleeson was quick to assure everyone he doesn’t have bad blood with Keller. </p> <p>He said on <em>The Project</em>: <span>“She has a sense of humour — she would actually be offended by the idea that I felt sorry for her,” the comedian said.</span></p> <p>“So, I find it hard to do that because if I do, I’m denying her a sense of humour, and she was finding it funny.”</p> <p>However, Keller clarified her position on the Jonesy &amp; Amanda show , by saying that while she has “no problem with Tom”, she was still upset about some of his words.</p> <p>“I like Tom, we saw him at the airport, no problem with Tom. But (his speech) gave everyone permission to say, ‘yeah you’re all up yourselves, and this is all a big joke’. And it wasn’t a joke to me,” she explained.</p> <p>“I don’t know why in television we’re embarrassed to be proud of our work. The tourism industry has awards, the restaurant industry has awards … He got to a point where he said, ‘Sucko for wanting this, you know it’s all a dumb joke’ — and that’s what made me feel bad, because to the other nominees, it wasn’t.</p> <p>“We were all worthy, and I don’t think we should be embarrassed for being worthy.”</p>

“It hurts”: Roger Federer’s crushing admission after nail-biting Wimbledon finals loss

<p>Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic were on the verge of causing a worldwide meltdown after an intense Wimbledon final that will forever be remembered.</p> <p>After an epic four-hour-and 57-minute-long match, Djokovic emerged as the victor in the longest men’s final the All England Club has ever witnessed. The final set on its own went for two hours with the champions hoping to one up each other with every move they made.</p> <p>In the end, it was the Serbian who came out on top 7-6 1-6 7-6 4-6 13-12 (7-3) as the world watched the first ever fifth set tiebreak at the iconic major.</p> <p>Devastated, Federer was unable to take advantage of two championship points in the fifth set and was the player who fell short on a day that will be considered iconic for tennis fans.</p> <p>Former British star Tim Henman said on the BBC broadcast, it’s a match “the tennis world will reflect on for a long time to come”.</p> <p>And he wasn’t the only one who held those sentiments, as viewers at home took to Twitter to express their disbelief at the game they just witnessed.</p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet tw-align-center" data-lang="en-gb"> <p dir="ltr">Unbelievable scenes.

It’s where I wanted to participate and where I wanted to win one day.”</p> <p>Federer cemented his nice guy status. Despite being crushed from his loss, he still found time to praise Djokovic for his performance.</p> <p>“It was a great match. It was long, it had everything,” he said. “I had my chances, so did he, we played some great tennis so in a way I’m happy with my performance as well.</p> <p>“But Novak, congratulations man, that was great. That was crazy.</p> <p>“I hope I give people the chance to believe, at 37, it’s not over yet.”</p> <p>In his post-match conference, Federer was visibly down but still tried to remain optimistic for having the opportunity of making history.</p> <p>“I mean, all of us working in this sport, we know what a great sport it is. I don’t think we need matches, per se. Maybe we need them to sometimes cross over to other sports, maybe get to the fans in the streets and so forth. If that’s the case, that this match did something like this, I think that’s great,” said the Swiss champ.</p> <p>“I think it was a great match with wonderful points played. It had everything. Novak played also amazing today. So I hope it resonates in a big way.</p> <p>“You try to take the good things out of this match. There’s just tons of it.</p> <p>“Like similar to 2008 maybe, I will look back and think, ‘Well, it’s not that bad after all’. For now, it hurts, and it should, like every loss does here at Wimbledon.</p> <p>“I think it’s a mindset. I’m very strong at being able to move on because I don’t want to be depressed about actually an amazing tennis match.”</p> <p>His battle against Rafael Nadal in 2008 at the All England Club is widely considered to be one of the greatest games the sport has ever seen, and now, with Sunday's epic final, fans and experts can’t help but draw comparisons.</p> <p>But despite the intensity and power of the two matches, the only thing the 37-year-old can focus on is the end result.</p> <p>“Sure, epic ending, so close, so many moments. Yeah, I mean, sure there’s similarities. But you’ve got to go dig, see what they are,” Federer said. “I’m the loser both times, so that’s the only similarities I see.”</p> <p>And while members of the media snickered after hearing that last line, it’s obvious that behind the smile, Federer is crushed that he couldn’t leave London with the one thing he wanted most.</p>

Today show host opens up about "severe" backlash

<p><em>Today</em><span> </span>show's entertainment reporter Brooke Boney has opened up and shared what happened after her controversial Australia Day speech on SBS's program <em>Insight </em>on Tuesday night.</p> <p>She spoke as a part of a panel of prominent Indigenous Australians on a special NAIDOC edition of <a rel="noopener" href="https://www.news.com.au/entertainment/tv/morning-shows/today-show-reporter-brooke-boney-opens-up-about-severe-backlash-in-emotional-interview/news-story/8a6403002043cf865ca12b241acb7c1d" target="_blank"><em>Insight</em></a>.</p> <p>Boney shared her story as to why she got into journalism, which was due to a “really big trauma” in her family.</p> <p>“It really made me question who I was, and … why so many things kept happening to my family, and why my life seemed so much harder than the people around me,” she said.</p> <p>The words echoed her speech that she delivered on January 26, which was one of her first episodes on<em>Today<span> </span></em>after the producers debuted a new line-up of co-hosts.</p> <p>Boney called for the date of Australia Day to be changed due to respect for the Indigenous community.</p> <p>“I can’t separate 26 January from the fact that my brothers are more likely to go to jail than school or that my little sisters and my mum are more likely to be beaten or raped than anyone else’s sisters or mum. And that started from that day,” Boney expressed.</p> <p>Boney took the time on <em>Insight </em>to reflect on the impact of her words and the “bloody big” reaction her statement caused.</p> <p>“I wasn’t expecting it to be as big or as severe as what it was. I knew there’s a big part of our country who haven’t heard different perspectives on big questions of our national identity before … that was a big part of the reason I wanted to go work at Channel 9. But I didn’t understand how new the concept would be to so many people.

That’s my experience with blackfullas tho. It’s so often (nearly always) the case that they’re not seeking fame or fortune for themselves. They want to succeed to prove that they are good enough, that they can do it. They want to keep going so they can make other people’s lives easier. And that’s it. You have a purpose that’s bigger than your next song or getting through medical school or winning a game of footy. Long caption but watch the show tonight. It’s a brilliant reminder of what young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are capable of. (spoiler - it’s anything and everything) ❤️🖤💛</a></p> <p style="color: #c9c8cd; font-family: Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 17px; margin-bottom: 0; margin-top: 8px; overflow: hidden; padding: 8px 0 7px; text-align: center; text-overflow: ellipsis; white-space: nowrap;">A post shared by <a style="color: #c9c8cd; font-family: Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 14px; font-style: normal; font-weight: normal; line-height: 17px;" rel="noopener" href="https://www.instagram.com/boneybrooke/" target="_blank"> Brooke Boney</a> (@boneybrooke) on Jul 9, 2019 at 2:12am PDT</p> </div> </blockquote> <p><span>“There were people saying really awful things about me, about my family – it’s really hard when people say threats.

“Don’t patronise me”: Tennis star blows up at reporter after Wimbledon exit

<p>Johanna Konta has shut down a journalist for “picking” on her after she found his line of questioning to be offensive.</p> <p>After losing to Barbora Strycova in the Wimbledon quarter-finals 7-6 6-1 on Centre Court, the last remaining hope for the British player in the singles draw claimed that her opponent was simply better than her, but that answer didn’t satisfy everyone.</p> <p>Discussing the game, the 28-year-old said she wouldn’t do anything differently if she was given the chance to play again, but things started heating up once she was asked whether she needs to accept flaws in her own game.</p> <p>Clearly taken aback, Konta interjected when the reporter kept pushing the same question.</p> <p><strong>Reporter:</strong><span> </span>Looking at numbers, 33 unforced errors, then you had a smash at the net which you hit straight to her, then towards the end of the third set you had a double-fault, then missed a drive volley. Do you not have to look at yourself a little bit about how you cope with these big points? It’s all very well saying it’s a lot to do with your opponent, but there were key points when you perhaps could have done better.</p> <p><strong>Johanna Konta:</strong><span> </span>Is that in your professional tennis opinion?</p> <p><strong>Reporter:<span> </span></strong>No, that’s just as a watching spectator with everyone else on Centre Court willing you on. And the numbers are IBM’s.</p> <p><strong>Konta:</strong><span> </span>OK. I mean, I don’t think you need to pick on me in a harsh way. I mean, I think I’m very open with you guys. I say how I feel out there. If you don’t want to accept that answer or you don’t agree with it, that’s fine. I still believe in the tennis that I play. I still believe in the way I competed. Yeah, I don’t have much else to say to your question.</p> <p><strong>Reporter:</strong><span> </span>I’m just asking you as somebody who presumably wants to go on from here, learn from this, win a grand slam one day. Is it not something …</p> <p><strong>Konta:</strong><span> </span>Please don’t patronise me.</p> <p><strong>Reporter:</strong><span> </span>I’m not patronising you.</p> <p><strong>Konta:</strong><span> </span>No, no, you are. In the way you’re asking your question, you’re being quite disrespectful and you’re patronising me. I’m a professional competitor who did her best today, and that’s all there is to that.</p> <p>The moderator was then forced to interfere, as the tennis star moved onto the next question.</p>

"I am more than Ashleigh Barty": Rafael Nadal starts sexism storm at Wimbledon

<p>Rafael Nadal has weighed in on the Wimbledon court debate as he rejected suggestions that Ash Barty deserved to play on Centre Court over him on Monday.</p> <p>Despite her world number one status, Barty only played one of her four Wimbledon matches on Centre Court this year. The French Open champion was also assigned to play on the 4,000-capacity Court 2, the third-ranked court at the All England Club, for two rounds – including her last match against Alison Riske on Monday night, where she suffered a shock loss 6-3 2-6 3-6.</p> <p>In the same evening, men’s world number two Nadal defeated 69th-ranked João Sousa on the 15,000-seater Centre Court in a straight-sets win described by a leading tennis journalist as a “snoozer”.</p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"> <p dir="ltr">Rafael Nadal through 6-2, 6-2, 6-2 over Joao Sousa in a snoozer match that, once again, <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Wimbledon?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Wimbledon</a> probably shouldn't have put on Centre Court, especially with strong women's options (like Barty-Riske, Halep-Gauff) available.</p> — Ben Rothenberg (@BenRothenberg) <a href="https://twitter.com/BenRothenberg/status/1148231794489274368?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">July 8, 2019</a></blockquote> <p>When asked by a journalist if the more competitive women’s match involving the world’s number one should have been staged on Centre Court instead of his, Nadal said, “I am the world No. 2 and I won 18 grand slams.”</p> <p>Nadal said there was no way to predict whether one match will be more exciting than the other. “Can we predict the future or not?” he said.</p> <p>“My answer is not no or yes. My answer is they make a decision. You are putting Ashleigh Barty in front of me. For me, both decisions are good.”</p> <p>Nadal said he felt that his standing in the sport is ahead of Barty’s.</p> <p>“In the world of tennis today, honestly, my feeling is today I am little bit more than Ashleigh Barty, even if Ashleigh Barty is the first player of the world and she already won in the French Open and she is playing unbelievably good,” the 33-year-old said.</p> <p>“But we can’t create problems every single day about decisions that they have to take. At the end of the day they have to make a decision.</p> <p>“Court No. 2, okay, they have to make decisions. Today they probably decided that. They have another girls playing on the Centre Court now.”</p> <p>Barty said the court assignment does not affect the way she plays her match. </p> <p>“Scheduling is out of my control. I’ll play on any court I’m scheduled on,” the 23-year-old said.</p> <p>“I think obviously scheduling is very difficult. There are so many incredible matches all the fans and all the people want to watch, and players want to be a part of.</p> <p>“No matter what court you’re scheduled on, it shouldn’t matter how you approach the match or play. It certainly doesn’t for me.</p> <p>“Court 2 is a beautiful court here. We played on that court earlier in the rounds and for a doubles match, as well. It’s a beautiful court. I enjoyed my time out there.”</p>
