Tottenham have “grave concerns” over whether Uefa acted strongly enough after their fans reported being attacked by Barcelona stewards at a Champions League match.
The La Liga side were fined 20,000 euros (£17,546) on Friday for “insufficient organisation” during December’s group game.
Video footage emerged after the 1-1 draw that appeared to show fans being struck with batons inside the ground.
The club and fans sent details to Uefa.
Other fans were filmed getting struck on the way into the Nou Camp.
“We have grave concerns that the punishment imposed will not act as enough of a deterrent to avoid a repeat,” said the Champions League finalists in a statement.
“The treatment our fans was completely unacceptable, something Uefa has acknowledged, and some are still recovering as a result of this ordeal.
“No visiting supporters should have to experience what our fans went through that night again.”
Uefa’s fine was imposed on the day that Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino was given a one-match ban – suspended for 12 months – linked to the delayed start of the Champions League semi-final first leg against Ajax.
The Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust said there had been “unprovoked and indiscriminate” assaults on fans and it planned to take legal advice.
“We submitted a detailed dossier of accounts from supporters who were caught up in that night’s violence,” it said.
“This decision by Uefa sends clear signals. It says supporters are fair game for security staff to do what they want to.
“It says that broadcast rights and kick-off times are more important than supporter safety. And it says Uefa is unfit for purpose.”
Uefa and Barcelona have not commented on the statements.
Spurs, who will contest the Champions League final against Liverpool in Madrid on 1 June, were fined 10,000 euros (£8.758) for a delayed start to their home semi-final match against Ajax.
Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek will miss the Europa League final after rupturing his Achilles tendon in a charity friendly in the USA.
The 23-year-old went down clutching his left ankle in the first half of Chelsea’s 3-0 win over New England Revolution at Gillette Stadium.
Chelsea said the player had seen a specialist on Thursday and will now have surgery.
Chelsea play Arsenal in the final in Baku on Wednesday, 29 May.
England manager Gareth Southgate had earlier confirmed Loftus-Cheek would miss the final when announcing his squad for the forthcoming Nations League finals.
The player had been in the squad – but Southgate was forced to call up a replacement after learning of his injury.
“I went to bed last night and Ruben’s in the squad and playing brilliantly,” Southgate said.
“He misses now a major European final and a brilliant opportunity for us.”
He added it was a “huge disappointment” for the Chelsea man.
Loftus-Cheek scored in the second leg of the Blues’ Europa League semi-final against Eintracht Frankfurt and has been directly involved in nine goals in his past 15 competitive appearances for Chelsea.
Wednesday’s friendly raised £3.1m for organisations which combat hate crimes.
Ross Barkley scored twice either side of an Olivier Giroud header in the comfortable win in Foxborough.
Prior to the game, Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri had expressed his concerns about travelling to the US so close to a major European final.
Britain’s Cameron Norrie was knocked out in the second round of the Italian Open following a 6-2 6-2 defeat by 13th seed Borna Coric.
Norrie, 23, was the only British male to make it through to the second round after beating Australia’s John Millman.
Coric converted two of his four break points to win the opening set and broke again twice in the second to win in less than an hour in Rome.
The Croat will face Swiss Roger Federer or Portugal’s Joao Sousa next.
British number one Johanna Konta takes on American seventh seed Sloane Stephens in the women’s second round on Wednesday.
Manager Roy Hodgson says Crystal Palace’s win over Bournemouth was an “attacking party” after his side ended the season with an eight-goal thriller at Selhurst Park.
Palace scored three times in the opening 37 minutes but were pegged back to 3-2, increased their lead to 4-2 only for Bournemouth to score again, before settling the game with a fifth goal in the 80th minute.
There were 33 shots in total – 17 by Palace and 16 by the Cherries – and both sides could have scored more.
“It was a fantastic end to the season,” said Hodgson.
“It is nice now that I am standing here on the right end of the result that we could offer that spectacle to our fans in the final game of the season.
“I thought at 3-0 we would have a relatively comfortable second half but that wasn’t the case. It was an attacking party out there.”
Michy Batshuayi, playing for Palace for the final time before his loan spell from Chelsea ends, opened the scoring in the 24th minute, capitalising on slack Bournemouth defending to volley home from six yards.
The Belgian slid in to convert Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s cross from close range eight minutes later before a Wilfried Zaha shot hit the post and rebounded in off Bournemouth defender Jack Simpson for an own goal.
Jefferson Lerma then crashed a stunning 30-yard shot in off the post just before the break and Jordon Ibe drilled into the bottom corner via a slight deflection 10 minutes after half-time to give the visitors hope.
Patrick van Aanholt restored a two-goal lead for Palace, only for Joshua King to bundle home at a 73rd-minute corner.
However, with 10 minutes remaining Zaha set up Andros Townsend who swept home to make sure of the three points for the hosts.
Palace win typical final-day encounter
With the two sides having little to play for other than positions in lower mid-table, it was no surprise they served up typical final-day performances, full of attacking intent and occasionally poor defending.
There were 33 shots in total – 17 by Palace and 16 by Bournemouth – and both sides could have added to the eight goals that were scored.
Batshuayi had only scored four goals in 12 games before Sunday’s game since joining on loan in January, but he took advantage of defensive lapses to add another two goals to his total.
Hodgson has previously said that he is unsure whether Palace will be able to sign the Belgian permanently in the summer, and it will be interesting to see whether the two goals persuade the Londoners to seek a deal.
Batshuayi’s fellow forward Zaha was another who impressed. He did not find the net himself but fed Van Aanholt smartly for Palace’s fourth and produced a fine surging run before setting up Townsend for the fifth.
He was given a standing ovation when substituted late on, and the home fans will hope it was not the final time they see the highly rated Ivorian in a Palace shirt.
The win means Palace end with their highest Premier League points total from a 38-game campaign and Zaha will surely be crucial if they are to improve on that next season.
Bournemouth’s season summed up in 90 minutes
Cherries manager Eddie Howe felt the game was a “summary of their season”.
There were fine moments such as Lerma’s spectacular strike, plus their ability to consistently create chances and respond to going behind – but they struggled defensively and were repeatedly hurt by Palace’s quick attacking players.
“We had a real low in the first half,” Howe said. “We didn’t defend well, didn’t react well to the first goal. We wobbled a little bit, maybe due to the inexperience in our team.
“We responded really well in the second half and could have scored more.
“We felt we could cut them open but unfortunately it was the same for their attacking play. They had pace on the counter-attack, something we struggled to handle.”
Bournemouth end the season having scored 56 goals – a figure only exceeded by the elite top six teams – but they also conceded 70. Only the bottom two sides, Fulham and Huddersfield, had a worse defensive record.
It has also been a strange campaign for Howe’s side, having taken 26 of their 45 points in their opening 18 games, and then struggling for much of the second half of the season.
They were eighth in the table in December but finish 14th, two places worse off than last year – although they finished only one point shy of their record top-flight points tally of 46 from 2016-17.
“It has to be seen as another season of progression,” Howe said.
“We have been able to withstand injuries to key players and blood some young players.
“The team has been in transition throughout the seasons so to maintain our Premier League status and at times play good football, it has been pleasing.”
Man of the match – Wilfried Zaha (Crystal Palace)
Hodgson’s century of wins – the best stats
- Crystal Palace have scored five goals in a Premier League game for only the third time, and the first time since winning 5-0 v Leicester in April 2018.
- Bournemouth’s Premier League matches this season have featured a total of 126 goals (56 scored, 70 conceded), the most of any side in the competition this season.
- Roy Hodgson enjoyed his 100th Premier League win, becoming the oldest manager to reach that milestone at 71 years and 276 days.
- Palace striker Michy Batshuayi has ended on the winning side in all nine Premier League games where he has scored, with only Chris Smalling netting in more games with a 100% win record (Daniel Agger also on nine).
- Batshuayi has scored twice in each of his two Premier League appearances on the final day of the season, scoring two for Chelsea in May 2017 and a brace in this game.
- Andros Townsend has hit double figures for goal involvements in a Premier League season for the first time (six goals, four assists).
The actions of a boy who flicked cheese at a teenage pupil, triggering a fatal allergic reaction, were “childish and thoughtless” but not calculated to cause serious harm, a coroner said.
Karanbir Cheema, 13, died after having a severe reaction at his school in west London on 28 June 2017.
A specialist doctor previously told an inquest the death was “unprecedented”.
Coroner Mary Hassall said the boy who flicked cheese taken from a friend’s baguette was “simply not thinking”.
But recording a narrative conclusion at St Pancras Coroner’s Court, she said there was a “missed opportunity” at William Perkin School in Greenford to inform pupils of the severity of his “grave allergies”.
Asthmatic Karanbir, who had allergies to wheat, gluten, egg, milk and tree nuts, was immediately treated at the school when the cheese landed on his neck.
His condition quickly worsened and he began scratching vigorously at his skin, the inquest heard.
“He pulled his shirt off, screamed and flung himself around the room in panic. He could not breathe,” the coroner said.
Karanbir was taken to hospital in a life-threatening condition and died almost two weeks later at Great Ormond Street of post-cardiac arrest syndrome.
Ms Hassell called the school’s healthcare provision for Karanbir “inadequate” and said a contributing factor in his death was the fact his allergy action plan was not included in the school’s care plan or medical box.
After a delay, Karanbir was administered with an EpiPen, which contained adrenaline that was a year out of date, at the school.
It was not possible to say whether having adrenaline that was in date would have changed the outcome, Ms Hassell said.
She said she now would prepare a report intended to prevent future deaths, which would be sent to Karan’s school, emergency services, government departments and experts.
Speaking after the inquest, Karanbir’s mother Rina Cheema said: “I think it would help a lot of children out there, whatever happened to my son, if the schools, the institutions, hospital, paramedics, were to become aware how serious allergies are.
“My son was mature, he knew himself how fast to react. His words were at school: ‘Please help me or I’m going to die’. That says it all.”
Dame Alice Hudson, executive head teacher of the Twyford Trust which encompasses William Perkin School, said: “It’s my view that there was a very good general awareness of his allergies in relation to both bread and cheese.”
One of the London Bridge attackers was seen washing his knife and wiping it on his beard shortly after eight people were killed, an inquest has heard.
Khuram Butt, 27, was caught on CCTV cleaning his 12in pink ceramic knife inside the Black and Blue restaurant.
In the same footage an accomplice, Youssef Zaghba, 22, was seen having a drink from behind the bar.
Earlier, the inquest heard police kept shooting the attackers because they thought they had on explosive vests.
The Old Bailey inquest into the death of the eight victims heard armed officers from City of London Police shot Khuram Butt, Youssef Zaghba and Rachid Redouane after they drove a van into pedestrians, stabbed others, and confronted unarmed police officers shouting “Allahu Akbar” on 3 June 2017.
Counsel for the coroner Jonathan Hough QC had warned the families of the victims in court that “distressing images” would be shown and that Butt’s reaction was “the most chilling”.
The inquest was shown footage of diner Roy Larner, dubbed the Lion of London Bridge, being savagely stabbed in the stomach.
Mr Larner appeared not to react after he was stabbed twice in quick succession before he stood up and ran away.
In other footage, the third attacker, Rachid Redouane, 30, was shown on CCTV bending down to tie his shoelaces in the street during the attack through Borough Market.
Redouane was also seen, in other images, talking to an unidentified man and then walking away without attacking him, for reasons that are not known.
Mr Hough said: “There is clearly some form of discussion. We don’t know what was said. Despite appeals for witnesses, he [the man in the footage] never came forward.”
‘In harm’s way’
Earlier, Det Supt Rebecca Riggs told the inquest that armed officers who arrived at the scene withdrew when Butt and Zaghba had discarded their jackets to reveal fake suicide vests, Det Supt Riggs said.
“They could see that the attackers were still moving,” she said.
“They believed they were going to activate the explosive devices they were wearing and they fired a number of shots.”
Neil McLelland, who was looking out of the window of the nearby Wheatsheaf pub, was hit in the head by a bullet and fell to the ground, while five other people were injured by shrapnel from the shooting.
The court heard the officers then put “themselves in harm’s way” to evacuate the pub, taking Mr McLelland and others to safety.
Mr McLelland survived his injuries.
The second day of the inquest was also told one victim was killed after he tried to beat the attackers with his skateboard.
Det Supt Riggs said Spaniard Ignacio Echeverria, 39, had been cycling with friends when he came across PC Wayne Marques and PC Charlie Guenigault trying to tackle the knifemen.
The officers had stepped in to help Oliver Downing and Marie Bondeville, who had been hurt by the trio.
Mr Echeverria, an HSBC financial crime analyst, ran across to help and swung his board at one of the killers but was knocked to the ground by Redouane, the inquest was told.
Det Supt Riggs said: “Ignacio got off his bike and ran across to where the two officers were to assist [them].”
“He had taken his board from his rucksack and swung at the attackers and managed to hit them. [Rachid] Redouane retaliated, causing him to fall on the ground,” she added.
“The attackers then set upon him on the ground.”
Counsel to the coroner Jonathan Hough QC added: “It was a brief but furious assault.”
In addition to Mr Echeverria, those killed were James McMullan, 32, from Hackney in London, French trio Xavier Thomas, 45, Alexandre Pigeard, 26, and Sebastien Belanger, 36, Chrissy Archibald, 30, and Australians Sara Zelenak, 21, and Kirsty Boden, 28.
Extreme acts of bravery
BBC reporter Marie Jackson, at the inquest
Over several hours, the inquest watched the horrific attack unfold from every angle, second by second, from cameras on buildings, in restaurants, in taxis and buses, on police body-cams and the public’s mobile phones.
The hearing gasped as the attackers’ van was shown careering over London Bridge, knocking over pedestrians like skittles.
One camera captured Tyler Ferguson running to the side of his fiancée, Chrissy Archibald, as she lay dying in the middle of the road.
Other footage showed the attackers striding side-by-side through Borough Market, indiscriminately stabbing anyone in their path.
Their victims are filmed bleeding in the street, clutching their faces, heads and chests.
In the Black and Blue restaurant, the men stabbed customers with their knives before ducking behind the bar to swig some water from a tap.
On their way out, they picked up a couple of bottles, smashed them on the side of a table – another weapon.
The inquest continues.
Anthony Joshua has warned Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury they risk facing a better version of him if frustrating fight negotiations drag on.
Unified world heavyweight champion Joshua faces Andy Ruiz Jr on 1 June.
The 29-year-old says the bout will showcase evolving methods he began to use after beating Wladimir Klitschko.
“I’ve got through with strength, guts and heart,” said Joshua. “I’ve got away with mistakes. I realised I couldn’t continue my journey like that.”
Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live boxing, Joshua added: “After Klitschko, I thought ‘how many more fights can I have like that before the mistakes aren’t there any more?’
“For the last two years, hand on heart, with my team, we spend so much time doing things outside of boxing, things that can drain me.
“How do we now train smart to become smarter in the ring? Less quantity, more quality. It didn’t happen over night. It has taken two years to implement it and this is the first camp we are really seeing it.
“Look at my last fight against Alexander Povektin. I was ill, tired, had a flu, had a headache. I was going through changes. It will be interesting as this is the first time I can express these things.
“The longer Wilder and Fury leave it, the tougher it will be for them as I am not the fighter of two years ago. Give me another year or two and I’ll develop that little bit more.”
Can AJ find a US balance?
Joshua was complimentary of both Fury and WBC champion Wilder’s displays in their December draw, but BBC Radio 5 Live boxing analyst Steve Bunce believes the assertion he will improve in coming years is a “subtle way to tell them to get to the negotiating table”.
Failed talks with both parties led to Joshua’s team opting to tackle a US breakthrough with his next bout, plans that were hampered briefly when original opponent Jarrell Miller failed drug tests.
American Ruiz has 32 wins from 33 fights going into the Madison Square Garden bout.
Joshua admits he sits in an awkward position in striking the balance between showcasing the refined boxing skills he has worked on, while ensuring a “devastating” and eye-catching finish to impress the US market.
The IBF, WBA and WBO champion will travel to Florida this week to conduct the late stages of his training camp, before moving on to New York aiming to extend his perfect 21-fight record.
“Sometimes I’m sparring now and yesterday I was tired so I thought I’d work on not getting hit,” added Joshua.
“Then I thought to myself, is it a bit boring as people want to see us going out there entertaining? The sweet science and the entertainment – how do you meet that in the middle?
“I can’t just go in there and display a good jab. They want to see something a bit more aggressive.”
AJ experience shining through
Joshua’s trainer Rob McCracken has insisted on the team using their own unit to train in the US rather than using an existing gym in order to avoid distraction and maintain routine.
He says Joshua’s US debut is “as big as it gets” for the Briton and echoes improvements in the champion’s approach to the sport.
“You have to work with big Josh – some people train at 5pm every day, you cant do that with him as you have to work with his energy levels,” McCracken told BBC Radio 5 Live boxing.
“The hardest part of the camps are sparring and running. He has to run as he’s a big guy and needs to move his legs in fights so therefore has to do an element of running. A lot of heavyweights don’t run, he does.
“Sometimes we move sparring days if he doesn’t feel great. It’s me that has to persuade him.
“As he’s gone on though he has more experience. He was so keen when starting out that he’d tell you a white lie. As he has learned the game and knows it’s not to good to be in the ring if you’re exhausted from the schedule.
“He’s sensible now and says ‘I’m absolutely shattered’.”
Tottenham had two players sent off as they missed the chance to guarantee Champions League football next season with defeat by Bournemouth.
It was far from ideal preparation for Mauricio Pochettino’s side, who face Ajax in the Champions League semi-final second leg on Wednesday in Amsterdam, having lost the first leg 1-0.
Son Heung-min was dismissed for pushing Jefferson Lerma at the end of a frantic first half, in which Eric Dier was lucky not to have been sent off and Bournemouth could conceivably have had two penalties.
Then, just over two minutes after coming on at half-time, Juan Foyth was also shown a straight red card as he slid studs-up into Jack Simpson.
Bournemouth gave a senior debut to 19-year-old Irish goalkeeper Mark Travers and he made five saves in the first half to keep Spurs at bay, but was a spectator in the second half.
Despite their numerical advantage, the Cherries were unable to capitalise until Nathan Ake popped up to score a 91st-minute winner, heading in from a corner.
Spurs have now won just once in their past four league games and stay third on 70 points with only next Sunday’s match against Everton to come.
In the race for a top-four spot, they are four points clear of fifth-placed Arsenal, who have two games remaining. Chelsea can go third if they beat Watford on Sunday.
Spurs see red
How Pochettino would have wanted a straightforward win and the chance to rest players with the biggest game of his managerial career looming on Wednesday.
But his side made things far from easy and were the creators of their own downfall.
Dier was the first into Craig Pawson’s book as early as the 11th minute, with a bad tackle on Ryan Fraser and he could easily have received a second booking with a mistimed lunge on Joshua King as he stopped a Bournemouth counter-attack.
Hugo Lloris could have conceded a penalty when he collided with King, as the Norwegian tried to poke the ball past him.
And the Cherries had another penalty shout when Dier booted the back of Callum Wilson’s ankle as he went to shoot.
Son’s uncharacteristic red card came in the 43rd minute as he let his frustration boil over after he was pulled up for a foul on Fraser and he shoved Lerma, who dramatically fell to the ground.
Spurs had been on top in the first half, testing debutant Travers on a number of occasions and, while Son’s sending-off made things hard, Foyth’s senseless challenge made it almost impossible.
The Argentine came on for Toby Alderweireld, but he had just three touches in two minutes and 13 seconds before he caught Simpson.
They failed to register a shot on target in the second half and as Bournemouth ratcheted up the pressure, Ake’s goal was a matter of when, not if.
Pochettino will have to somehow pick his tired players up for the Ajax game, against a team who have already eliminated Real Madrid and Juventus.
But they go into that game in some of their worst form of the season, having suffered three consecutive defeats and five in their past six games in all competitions.
Travers impresses on debut
All the pre-match talk had been about Travers’ debut two weeks before his 20th birthday, with the youngster chosen ahead of 31-year-old Asmir Begovic who was not in the squad and 39-year-old Artur Boruc who sat on the bench.
He is the youngest Premier League goalkeeper to make his debut since Joe Hart in 2006, and his last first-team game came on loan for Weymouth at Gosport on New Year’s Day 2018 – having begun that spell by scoring from his own half with a free-kick.
This was a strong debut – he was happy to leave his area and was confident on the ball.
His eagerness to stray out of his box almost saw him concede a goal from the half-way line when Lucas Moura took aim in the eighth minute from 35 yards, but sent his shot wide.
But then came a string of fine saves – he acrobatically tipped efforts from Moura and Dele Alli over the bar and saved a one-one-one against Moura with his feet.
“It’s always a gamble to start someone who’s never played but on what we’ve seen I think he deserved an opportunity,” said Cherries boss Eddie Howe. “You couldn’t write a better debut. He’s great guy.”
At the other end of the pitch, Bournemouth used their pace well against Spurs, forcing them to concede free-kicks as Dier, Alderweireld and Moussa Sissoko were all booked as they struggled against the counter-attack.
But after Foyth’s sending off they barely threatened until a final five-minute barrage that got them their goal.
Although safe in mid-table, it was a much-needed win for Eddie Howe’s side who won their first home game in six and now have a slightly better record of three wins in their last 13 matches.
Their Premier League record points total to date is 46 in 2016-17 and they can surpass that tally if they beat Crystal Palace next week.
‘It is painful to play with nine players’
Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino: “I will respect the decision of the referee [on the red cards]. Nothing to say. That is football. Unlucky for us – of course it is difficult to get something positive. We made a massive effort.
“It is painful to play with two players [sent off]. We need to move on. We cannot change the decisions. We have ahead two finals. It is in our hands. If it does not happen we will be proud because nobody expected Tottenham to be in the position they are today.
“No one believed in Tottenham to be in this position in the last week of the competition. What happens will happen and I will feel proud. We are fighting six teams, it is impossible for all six to get the top four, whatever happens I will feel proud and whatever happens in the semi-final I will be proud.”
Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe: “We had valid shouts for a penalty. It doesn’t matter now, we’ve won the game but they are key moments that went against us. I don’t think Foyth has meant to go in high but unfortunately the momentum has taken him. I think Son’s reaction warranted the red.
“It was huge for us to win after we went a long time without winning at home. It has tailed off the last few weeks and we were very keen to end on high note.”
Man of the match – Mark Travers
Spurs away day blues – The best stats
- Ake has scored two of Bournemouth’s five 90th-minute winning goals in the Premier League, also doing so against Liverpool in December 2016.
- Tottenham have lost six consecutive away Premier League matches for the first time since May 2004 under David Pleat.
- Fraser has registered 14 Premier League assists this season – no player has more in the top five European leagues (also Jadon Sancho on 14).
- Foyth was sent off 133 seconds after coming on as a substitute for Spurs – the fastest red card for a sub in a Premier League game since Steven Gerrard was red-carded after 38 seconds in March 2015 for Liverpool against Manchester United.
- Travers (aged 19 years and 351 days) became the first teenage goalkeeper to start a Premier League game since Joe Hart for Manchester City in October 2006.
- Son is the fifth Asian player to receive a Premier League red card, after Sun Jihai, Li Tie, Hidetoshi Nakata and Maya Yoshida.
- Spurs became the first team to receive two red cards in a Premier League game since Chelsea against Burnley in August 2017, and the first to receive two straight red cards since Manchester City against Chelsea in December 2016.
- Since the start of the 2015-16 season, teams facing Bournemouth have received 18 red cards – five more than any other club has seen an opponent red carded in that time.
Bournemouth travel to Crystal Palace for their final game of the season on 12 May (15:00 BST).
Spurs face Ajax on Wednesday (20:00) as they battle for a place in the Champions League final, before their final Premier League match against Everton on 12 May (15:00).
Princess Charlotte’s birthday has been marked with the release of three photographs taken by her mother.
Charlotte, who turns four on Thursday, was captured by the Duchess of Cambridge at Kensington Palace and their Norfolk home of Anmer Hall.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex sent their best wishes to their niece.
The couple, awaiting the birth of their own child, replied to a Kensington Palace Instagram post: “Happy Birthday Charlotte! Lots of love, H and M.”
In one of the new images, Charlotte can be seen in a blue flower-print summer dress as she sits on grass at the palace.
The other pictures show her running and smiling as she holds a flower and sitting on a wooden fence.
Charlotte, who is fourth in line to the throne, was born at St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, west London, at 08:34 BST on 2 May 2015.
The Duchess of Cambridge has released pictures she has taken of her three children on a number of occasions in the past.
Last week, she released three images of her youngest son Prince Louis to mark his first birthday.
And she broke with tradition in 2015 by issuing the official photographs of her newborn daughter.
The series of four pictures were taken just weeks after Princess Charlotte was born and showed her being cradled by her elder brother Prince George.
Saracens have signed prop Josh Ibuanokpe from Harlequins on an undisclosed-length contract.
The 23-year-old tighthead has spent five years with Quins, signing his first professional deal last summer.
He made his Premiership and European debuts this season but will leave The Stoop this summer.
“Saracens have a history of developing young players and I’m excited to see how far my game can develop with them,” he said.
“I know a few of the players at the club and they’ve spoken about the tight-knit nature of the squad.”
Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall said: “We are excited to have signed a player of Josh’s potential and look forward to working with him at Saracens.”
The signing of the former England age-group forward comes after Saracens announced that Cornish Pirates scrum-half Alex Day and Worcester hooker Jack Singleton will be joining the reigning Premiership champions at the end of the season.
