HUGO VICKERS: At 12.20pm that Thursday, the Brigade Major of the Grenadier Guards received a phone message that sent a shiver of shock through him. The Garrison Sergeant Major asked the deceptively simple question: 'Is everything quiet in the headquarters?' 'I knew instantly there was only one reason why he would ask that question,' said Lieutenant Colonel J.N.E.B. Shaw (bottom left). 'And with that the most intense 11 days of my life began.' The GSM's words, though not official code, were enough to signal the impending death later that afternoon of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. What follows here are the astonishing stories from senior guardsmen who were at the heart of the preparations for the funeral (right) of our beloved monarch a year ago. Brigadier James Stopford of the Irish Guards was at his daughter Izzie's wedding in Corfu, where his phone had been buzzing for several hours with warnings of an impending announcement. Also required to make an immediate return were members of the Bearer Party (main picture) from the Queen's Company, Grenadier Guards, who were deployed on Operation Shader in Iraq. The Archers were commanded by Lieutenant General Sir Alistair Irwin (top left).

Police probe whether fugitive 'Iranian spy' Daniel Khalife had help from the inside as

Police chiefs are growing increasingly concerned that the ex-British Army soldier, 21, must have planned his audacious jailbreak from HMP Wandsworth as the hunt to track him down continues. It come amid claims that he may have strapped himself to the underside of the truck by fashioning straps out of the plastic covering on his cell mattress. The search for Khalife, who vanished on Wednesday, stepped up this morning as police were seen scouring Richmond Park amid suggestions he could be using his army training to hide out there. At the same time, questions continue to grow over how the suspected terrorist, who is alleged to have spied for Iran , was able to flee the Category B prison, where there have long been concerns over security.

How Daniel Khalife pulled off the great escape: The minute-by-minute lowdown on how the

Cunning and resourceful, the fugitive had more than an hour to melt away before police caught up with his escape truck. Officers finally pulled over the Bidfood lorry four miles from the prison. By then, all that was left to find was the makeshift strapping that Daniel Khalife used to smuggle himself out of prison clinging to the underside of the 18-ton vehicle. Yesterday police were frantically gathering and scouring hours of CCTV footage from along the winding route the truck took through south London.

The 'vanity projects' that bankrupted English councils: From authority that funded

Birmingham this week became the seventh local authority to go bust since the turn of the century, having made a series of costly expenditures, including £184m towards last year's Commonwealth Games. In recent years, town halls have begun declaring bankruptcy at an unprecedented rate, with Conservative-run Thurrock council issuing a Section 114 notice, which freezes all non-essential spending, in 2022, followed by Lib Dem-led Woking earlier this year. Labour-run Croydon and Slough also issued notices in 2022 and 2021 respectively, after Tory-led Northamptonshire's hand was forced in 2018, the first bankruptcy in nearly two decades following the demise of Labour-run Hackney in 2000. MailOnline can today reveal the remarkable spending that was allowed to be unleashed at these seven councils.

Rishi Sunak says he is India's 'son-in-law' as he arrives for G20 summit amid post-Brexit

Rishi Sunak, whose wife Akshata is the daughter of an Indian billionaire, said the Asian country is 'very near and dear to me' ahead of touching down in New Delhi. But despite the warmth Mr Sunak is facing tricky discussions about trade when he meets counterpart Narendra Modi at the gathering of powerful nations. Hopes a bilateral deal would be finalised this week have been dashed by tensions over visas. Currently Indian students are allowed to stay in the UK for two years after graduating, but Mr Modi wants to enshrine that in an agreement after Home Secretary Suella Braverman suggested the rules could change. Mr Sunak will also urge India to take a firmer stance against Russia's invasion of Ukraine - and swiped at Vladimir Putin for refusing to attend and be held 'accountable' by other leaders.

REBECCA ENGLISH: On the anniversary of the Queen's death, her warring grandsons William and Harry are still 100 miles apart... with the reconcilliation Her Majesty longed for as far away as ever

REBECCA ENGLISH: Princes William and Harry are spending the first anniversary of their grandmother's death in the same country - but still couldn't be farther apart. Yesterday the brothers were less than 100 miles from each other, undertaking public engagements, but have no plans to meet before Harry heads to Germany tomorrow. Amid the poignancy of the occasion, their continuing rift is a sad reminder of the pain Harry's actions caused Queen Elizabeth in the latter years of her life. Her death is being marked with an unprecedented tribute from King Charles to the family's much-loved matriarch, who passed away at Balmoral exactly a year ago at the age of 96 after 70 impeccable years of public service.

Prince Harry returned to Britain for the first time in three months today to attend a charity awards ceremony on the eve of the anniversary of the Queen's death. The Duke of Sussex is celebrating the achievements and resilience of seriously-ill children and their families who are supported by WellChild at the event in London. He told the audience at the ceremony: 'I was unable to attend the awards last year as my grandmother passed away. As you also probably know, she would have been the first person to insist that I still come to be with you all instead of going to her. And that's precisely why I know, exactly one year on, she is looking down on all of us tonight, happy we're together continuing to spotlight such an incredible community.' The awards ceremony is taking place on the eve of the first anniversary of the death of their grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II .

'Are all these people REALLY here for me?': AILSA ANDERSON, who was at the Queen's side

AILSA ANDERSON: For the most famous woman in the world, there was an extraordinary - and very becoming - sense of modesty about Queen Elizabeth II. Perhaps one of the most telling examples I witnessed was during a visit to Berkshire and Buckinghamshire as part of her Golden Jubilee tour in 2002. The Queen was on a walkabout. The crowds lining the streets were ten-deep and in raptures, waving flags and bunting and cheering. She visibly brightened and turned to me afterwards to ask: 'Are all these people really here for me?'

EXCLUSIVE - Parents go to war with school uniform: Fury over 'overly strict' policies that

Students have been forced to wear spare shoes which are too small, leaving them with blisters, heavy black tights and trousers in 30C heat and expensive school-branded clothing which has set parents back by hundreds of pounds. Strict uniform policies have come under fire in recent years over allegations they lead to children missing valuable time in school and are too severe amongst the climate crisis. Back in June Toni Hurst (right, with son) from Stockport says she was baffled when Hazel Grove High School told her that Tom Foster, 13, would be put in isolation if he wore shorts. Tom was eventually given permission to wear shorts due to eczema. The school told MailOnline that in hot weather ties and blazers are not required and that 'slight adjustments' may be made to uniform if medically necessary. Now an expert psychologist has joined a fresh wave of parents in criticising policies which have been described similar to being 'in the Army', arguing they can cause extra stress and anxiety to students worrying whether they will be punished for an unwitting infraction.

EXCLUSIVE: How the cost-of-living crisis is forcing Brits to sell their cars: 2.8million

EXCLUSIVE: According to a new study from Motorway, 11% of Brits have been forced to sell their precious motors because of the rise of costs for everything from bills, rent, food and, of course, car costs such as MOTs and even fuel. The Bank of England has raised interest rates for the 12th consecutive time to 4.5%. Motorway said this demonstrated that inflationary pressures are refusing to budge. Almost one in five owners aged 25-34 are selling their vehicle as a result, which is the highest of any age group. But, the research also suggests that 41% of Brits have no idea how much their car is worth, highlighting the opportunities the nation is missing out on, by not investigating the true value of selling their car.

Top Boy in real life! As hit show returns for explosive final season, we reveal the every

As Netflix prepares to air the final series of Top Boy, the gritty locations that make up the fictional drugs turf in east London are enjoying a boom in visits from fans. Since its beginning in 2011, the fictional 'Summerhouse' estate in Hackney has played host to rival drug dealers Dushane Hill (played by Ashley Walters) and Gerard 'Sully' Sullivan (Kane Robinson) as they rise through the ranks. The show's first two seasons, each just four episodes long, aired in 2011 and 2013 and were met with critical acclaim under the helm of creator Ronan Bennett. Such was its impact that in 2017, Canadian rapper Drake successfully lobbied Netflix to revive the series and served as executive producer as the cast and crew returned. Now on its fifth and final run of episodes, we look back at the humdrum London spots that have lit up on the TV screens of millions of viewers worldwide.

Bijou Phillips looks grief-stricken as she leaves court following her husband Danny

Phillips left through the back exit of the courtroom Thursday, and she was still wearing her wedding ring as she wore dark sunglasses, a blue shirt and white pants.

As she was approached by the media after the proceedings, she was seen clutching the arm of a one of those she walked out with in an attempt to hide her face.

I had a dip in Hitler's bath: Photojournalist Lee Miller went from Vogue model to

When Elizabeth 'Lee' Miller was modelling in the 1920s, she likely never expected that one day she would find herself sitting in Adolf Hitler's bathtub. But, in 1945, on the same day as the Nazi dictator's suicide, that is what she did when she visited his abandoned Munich apartment (left). Now, ahead of the release of a film about her life starring Kate Winslet , some of her most famous images are revealed in a new book. At the peak of her modelling career in the late 1920s, the photojournalist was displaying her talents in American Vogue. But, after going on to train as a photographer in Paris in the early 1930s, Miller found herself in London when the Second World War began. After documenting the Blitz in the UK capital, in 1944 she covered the final year of the war in Europe for British Vogue, documenting the war crimes committed by the Nazis. Above: Miller (right) at the entrance to St Malo fortress in Brittany, France, in 1944; a piano (inset top) covered with rubble in London following a bombing raid in 1941; women of the Auxiliary Territorial Service (inset bottom) operating a searchlight battery at South Mimms, Hertfordshire.

North Korea says it has developed a new nuclear attack...

The North's official Korean Central News Agency said the vessel - named 'Hero Kim Kun Ok' - is designed to launch tactical nuclear weapons from underwater but did not specify the number of missiles it could carry and fire. South Korean officials were sceptical that the submarine would work as North Korea described and said it likely wasn't ready for operational duty. But its launch underscored the North's commitment to extending the range of its nuclear arsenal with systems that are harder to detect in advance. Based on Kim Jong Un's comments and photos by North Korean state media, it's likely the submarine is the same one Kim inspected in 2019 while it was under construction, which experts then assessed as an effort to convert an existing Romeo-class submarine. The submarine appears to have at least 10 launch tubes - four of them apparently larger than the other six - that are possibly designed for missiles.
