How Princess Diana's Birthplace Carries On Her Good Work to This Day

  • Popsugar
She wasn't born royal, but Diana, Princess of Wales, arrived in a rather regal setting. The princess came into the world in a home built by a future king on the grounds of one of the House of Windsor's most famous residences, and during her early years, the queen was one of her neighbors!

Diana was born at Park House on the Sandringham Estate in Norfolk. The sand-colored Victorian building, with its huge bay windows, is very close to Elizabeth II's home Sandringham House. Park House was built in the 1860s when the queen's great-grandfather, the future Edward VII, settled there, and Diana's birthplace was originally designed to house guests and staff who couldn't fit into the main residence.

In 1961, Park House was being leased by John, Viscount Althorp, and his wife, Frances, who had close links to the royal family. Frances, Viscountess Althorp, had been born at the house in 1936 as her own parents,

If you've been itching for another look at Disney's live-action Kim Possible movie, then sit down, relax, and press play on our exclusive clip, above.

In it, cast members like Sadie Stanley and Sean Giambrone - who play Kim Possible and her Bff Ron Stoppable, respectively - give fans the low-down on what to expect from the film as they hit the red carpet for the film's premiere. The iconic Disney Channel characters from the 2000s animated series are back, and things have obviously changed a little given how it's taking place over a decade later, but the empowering themes in the movie are still very much present.

The cast aren't the only people who got to chat about the movie, however - the original voice of Kim Possible, Christy Carlson Romano, told the camera that the character "really represents being empowered as a young person in high school

The Bachelor Is Leaning Into Tragic Backstories More Than Ever - Here's Why That's Not Ok
When you get down to it, The Bachelor hasn't changed much from the very first season. The show follows a man as he dates about two dozen women. The dates are extravagant, the drama is over-the-top, and the tears are flowing. That being said, longtime watchers of the show may have noticed gradual changes over the years. One in particular sticks out and has been leaving me with an unsettled feeling: the show has a way of using tragic stories as currency. Having a heartbreaking story to share seems to have become a positive on the casting side, as if it gives the producers something to capitalize on.

Before I get into it, this is in no way criticizing the men and women who have shown their bravery by sharing their stories on national television. This is to point out the way production makes having a tragic story a mere check on a Bachelor résumé.

Sorry, DC Fans - Margot Robbie Won't Be in the Suicide Squad Sequel

  • Popsugar
Sorry, Harley Quinn fans; it looks like we won't be seeing the gum-chewing, maniacal bat-wielder in any other DC films anytime soon. Margot Robbie first brought Harley to life in 2016's Suicide Squad and was expected to appear in the sequel directed by James Gunn, formerly of the Guardians of the Galaxy films. A report by Forbes reveals Harley won't be in the sequel at all and the Joker and Harley stand-alone movie has also been pushed back.

Of course, Robbie's Harley will be starring in her own Squad spinoff, Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), so it's not as if she's been thrown to the wayside. In actuality, Gunn's plans for the Squad sequel is to provide his own twist to the story and release a film that's more like a soft reboot. The director's take on DC's famous antiheroes will feature a new
