Elon Musk announced that he was activating Starlink in response to U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s tweet announcing the issuing of a General License to provide the Iranian people with access to digital communications.

“We took action today to advance Internet freedom and the free flow of information for the Iranian people, issuing a General License to provide them greater access to digital communications to counter the Iranian government’s censorship,” Secretary Blinken said.

Currently, in Iran, massive protests are happening as a result of the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, who was detained by the morality police for her head scarf not being properly worn. Although she had no known heart-related health problems, the police said she suddenly died of heart failure.

Eyewitnesses said that she was beaten and her head hit the side of a police car. This along with leaked medical scans suggested cerebral hemorrhage and stroke. In response to her death, there have been several large-scale protests across Iran that received international support from world leaders, celebrities, and organizations.

The Iranian government sided with the morality police and has been suppressing the protests, shooting protestors with metal pellets and birdshot, and deploying tear gas and water cannons. The government also blocked access to many apps including Instagram and WhatsApp and limited internet access to prevent protestors from organizing.

This is where Starlink comes in. A few days ago, Elon Musk said that Starlink would seek exemption from Iranian sanctions. This was in response to @Erfankasraie who asked if Elon could provide Starlink to the Iranian people. “It could be a game changer for the future.”

Elon also responded,” OK,” to @agusantonetti who asked if he could do the same for other countries under a dictatorship such as Cuba. This isn’t the first time Elon Musk has intervened to help the people of a nation. He and SpaceX deployed Starlink to Ukraine to support the nation as it faced Russia’s brutal and unethical invasion.

Lady Susan Hussey

Lady Susan Hussey, who has stepped down from her role as a senior palace aide, was a key and trusted figure in the British royal household for decades.

The 83-year-old is godmother to Prince William, the Prince of Wales, and was one of Queen Elizabeth II’s closest confidantes.

She was her longest-serving lady-in-waiting – with the title Woman of the Bedchamber – having first been recruited in 1960. Lady Hussey was also portrayed briefly in the current season of the popular Netflix series, The Crown.

Susan Katharine Hussey, Baroness Hussey of North Bradley, was born in 1939, the fifth and youngest daughter of the 12th Earl Waldegrave and Mary Hermione, Countess Waldegrave.

She has two children – one of whom, daughter Katharine, followed her mother into royal service, and serves as an official companion to Camilla, the Queen Consort.

Lady Hussey started working for the Royal Family in the same year the Queen gave birth to her third child, Prince Andrew.

At first, her role was to help answer letters, eventually becoming part of a close-knit inner circle of ladies-in-waiting with unrivaled knowledge of the workings of the palace.

The role of lady-in-waiting was typically given to wealthy aristocrats who were not paid a salary but becoming Woman of the Bedchamber was considered an extremely prestigious role.

She sat alongside the Queen in the royal Bentley on the journey to the funeral of Prince Phillip, the Duke of Edinburgh, in 2022, and led members of the royal household at her funeral at Westminster Abbey in September of the following year.

Buckingham Palace announced last week that Lady Hussey and the other former ladies-in-waiting who served the Queen would help King Charles III to host events and would be known as “ladies of the household”.

She resigned from that role, and apologized, after she repeatedly asked a black British charity boss where she was from at a palace event for campaigners against sexual violence against women.

Therefore, Prince Harry should not have been informed about her cancer

Prince Harry should not have been informed about her cancer

While the Royal Family knew about Queen Elizabeth’s alleged cancer, one family member was said not to have been informed for a very specific reason: Prince Harry.

The headlines surrounding the new book by  Gyles Brandreth , 74, a former MP and close friend of Queen Elizabeth , †96, and her husband Prince Philip , †99, don’t stop. In “Elizabeth: An Intimate Portrait” the author not only unpacks the Queen’s relationship with her grandson Prince Harry , 38, and his wife Duchess Meghan , 41, but also about their health condition.

Did Queen Elizabeth Have Bone Marrow Cancer?

Gyles Brandreth claims the monarch was suffering from a form of myeloma, “which would explain her fatigue, weight loss and the ‘mobility problems’ that we were often told about in the last year of her life.”

But while the public remained ignorant of her condition before the Queen’s death, the royal family was of course informed – except for Harry and Meghan, according to journalist  Kinsey Schofield in her “The To Di For Daily Podcast”. She believes that the emigrated couple was not informed about this and there is a very specific reason for that.

Prince Harry is said not to have known

“Someone texted me today and said that Gyles may […] have gotten permission from the family to put this in his book to make sure it doesn’t become breaking news if Harry reveals it in ‘Spare’ , which I think is very intelligent.”

Kinsey Schofield thinks the royal family simply wanted to maintain control over whether and how this information is released. The renegade prince, whose scandalous memoir is due out in January, simply couldn’t be trusted.
