My Weekly editor Stuart JohnstoneWe all have family dramas, don’t we? The royals are certainly no different in that regard, but one of the things that separates them from us is that our dramas are not played out for everyone to chip in on in the media! But while these are clearly challenging times for the Windsors, we realised there are things to celebrate, too. It’s now a decade since Kate Middleton got engaged to William, and what a 10 years it has been – as you will see on p8. I hope you enjoy our look back at the future Queen’s time in the spotlight. Have a great week.

He fulfilled a boyhood dream by acting alongside the impossibly glamorous Eva Longoria… but can you remember in which drama they both starred?

I've worked on a variety of regional newspapers and national magazines. My Weekly and Your Best Ever Christmas are fantastic, warm-hearted brands with an amazing, talented team.
