DEAR FRIENDS OF MINE after giving some thought to this, I have decided to share with you that I tested positive with the Corona Virus almost three weeks ago. Perhaps I am a particularly robust 59 year old – I like to think I am – or was blessed with getting only a mild case of Covid 19 – but after a week or so of what I would describe as a 'Turbo-charged Flu', I came out of it feeling okay- although I must admit I didn't mind the quarantine as it gave me the chance to really recover. I am speaking out in answer to the enormous amount of fear being generated by the pandemic, some of it entirely justified, and my heart goes out to everyone who has had to deal with real loss and pain. But I want to let you know that it isn't always a killer, and we can and will beat this thing. Sending LOVE to all my Homies and Fans, in Italy 🇮🇹 particularly, the UK 🇬🇧 and the US 🇺🇸 and everywhere in the world I have been lucky enough to visit on my travels with DURAN DURAN. Cannot wait to be back onstage again, sharing new music, love and joy. Stay safe, stay connected and get creative! Love John 🖤

Queens Physical State and Resilience During Rare Speech Was an Inspiration Her Biographer Says

Queens Physical State and Resilience During Rare Speech Was an Inspiration Her Biographer Says

Conjuring WWII-era decidedness, Queen Elizabeth’s rare address amid the coronavirus pandemic on Sunday captured the mood of Britain, a leading historian and royal biographer says.

The Queen, 93, referred to her wartime broadcast in 1940 alongside her sister Princess Margaret and said that Britons would “meet again” when it was all over. (“We’ll Meet Again” was a popular wartime song from Dame Vera Lynn.)

Summing up a spirit of “good-humored resolve” that people are showing during a time of lockdowns and separation from families, the monarch spoke of a generation that today is “as strong as any” — much has been said of her own wartime generation 80 years ago.

“It brought a lump to my throat,” Robert Lacey, author of books Monarch and Majesty, tells PEOPLE. “It was interesting that she made the parallels with 1940, and then went on to explain that it was a different sort of international struggle now that everyone has to take part in. It made a perfect link to 80 years ago.”

“It was optimistic without false optimism. It was sober and realistic, but there was a grounded optimism to it.”

Despite relocating to Windsor Castle in mid-March and being rarely seen since, she was “looking very well. Her physical state and resilience was an inspiration in itself,” he adds.

The broadcast — shot last Thursday in the White Drawing Room — was watched by around 24 million people in the U.K. The country has a population of around 67 million.

Drawing a line from today back to her childhood, the Queen fondly recalled her broadcast as a teenage princess, during the war and holed up, during a time of crisis, at the castle. But that original broadcast might not have happened were it not for American inspiration.

Only two years earlier in 1938, the owner of the New York Herald Tribune, Helen Reid, had suggested that the two princesses might contribute to the cause of transatlantic solidarity, Lacey explains on his website.

“The British ambassador had been disdainful of such attempts to enlist the princesses for stunts, and George VI’s private secretary, Tommy Lascelles, agreed. There is, of course, no questi

Teens Allegedly Targeted Doctor Husband Found Dead in Ditch at U Wisconsin

Teens Allegedly Targeted Doctor Husband Found Dead in Ditch at U Wisconsin

Authorities have arrested two teenagers, alleging the pair killed Dr. Beth Potter and her husband, Robin Carre, as part of a “targeted” attack that took place at the University of Wisconsin last week.

A statement from the University of Wisconsin-Madison Police Department confirms Khari Sanford, 18, was arrested late Friday.

Investigators are alleging Sanford is “known to the family,” but did not specify how.

On Saturday, Ali’jah J. Larrue, 18, was also detained for his alleged role in the deaths.

Both are charged with two counts of party to a crime for first-degree intentional homicide, and face life in prison if convicted.

Police confirm that Potter and Carre were both shot. They were found last Tuesday morning in a ditch outside the University of Wisconsin Arboretum, located on the campus.

Medical examiners have determined both died from homicidal trauma.

“We believe that this was not a random act,” reads the statement. “It was calculated, cold-blooded, and senseless — and we will continue to do all we can to bring justice to Robin and Beth, their family, and their loved ones.”

According to a statement from the school, Dr. Potter worked at the Wingra Family Medical Center run by the Access Community Health Centers and the University of Wisconsin’s Department of Family Medicine and Community Health.

Carre was pronounced dead at the scene, while Potter survived just long enough to get to the hospital, where she died from her injuries.
