In IAMCR Madrid 2019, the impact of the latest communication technologies on society, culture and human rights were analyzed, with special emphasis on the quality and authenticity of the sources and messages before the rise of mechanization and intelligence artificial. This general problem arises in the context of advances in technology and its impact on the quality of human life, the influence of communication technologies on the objectivity of events, and how the geopolitical and socio-economic context is affected by the changes in the structure and the most recent forms that the communication processes adopt.

Enjoying all the traditional stalls and games at Englefield Summer Fete, 5-year-old George and his 4-year-old sister Charlotte had a blast with Kate’s parents, Carole and Michael Middleton. “They were having such fun going from stall to stall, playing on all the games,” a local villager tells PEOPLE, adding: “George did pretty well at the ‘crockery smash’ stall.

“They were having such fun going from stall to stall, playing on all the games,” a local villager tells PEOPLE, adding: “George did pretty well at the ‘crockery smash’ stall. He looked very pleased with himself.”

The royal siblings enjoyed several turns on the inflatable bouncy slides, exploring the small gathering as they held hands with Kate’s parents.

“They were so cute, and Charlotte particularly was very friendly, politely saying hello to other children. George was running around, exactly like all the other children,“ says the local.

As the kids are on summer break, so Palace has not announced any schedule engagement for Duchess of Cambridge. I am expecting one or two unannounced engagmeents in the upcoming weeks otherwise we will see William and Catherine at the King’s Cup in August.

The Romanian player Simona Halep becomes new Wimbledon champion after defeating Serena Williams 6-2, 6-2 with a magical performance . The Romanian tennis player wanted the Duchess of Cambridge to be present at the match she played and he wish was granted as Catherine cheered her up during the match. Duchess described the today’s match between two strong players as “incredible”.

More From Wimbledon after today’s match:

History wastes no time listening to those who speak of what is likely to happen. History heeds only those who make it happen – and in the women’s final at Wimbledon 2019, Simona Halep wrote her own name large. The No.7 seed, whose name appeared on no one’s list of likely winners before The Championships began, became the first Romanian ever to win a Wimbledon title. 

She stunned Serena Williams, the Centre Court crowd and almost everyone on Planet Tennis to triumph 6-2, 6-2 in just 55 minutes, with a display so resourceful, so near-flawless that there could be no answer. Two-and-a-half long years after Williams secured her 23rd Grand Slam title at the 2017 Australian Open, this toweringly remarkable woman found she must wait still longer for the elusive 24th crown to equal Margaret Court’s all-time record.

Twelve months ago Angelique Kerber defied her here; few could envisage Halep stonewalling Williams again on the same court – yet she did. In this battle of the former world No.1s, history was written, and history was denied; and the whole was utterly thrilling.

We saw the dress in September 2016 during the second Canada tour of Cambridges.  The dress was described as, “Dolce & Gabbana’s dress was worn by the Duchess of Cambridge on a recent visit to Canada. This forest-green crepe piece has puffed sleeves, a pretty bow tie and white buttons, evocative of styles from the ’40s. We like how the stitched seams and raw Georgette trims playfully emphasize the craftsmanship”. Crafted from a silk mix crepe fabric the £2,150 forest green dress featured  a self-fastening neck tie, gold buttons and a nipped in waistline in a fit and flare silhouette with ruffled detailing on the sleeves.
