As the leader of the world's 1.3billion Catholics, Pope Francis is a difficult man to upstage - but his 77-year-old second cousin has made a good job of it during his visit to Thailand. Sister Ana Rosa Sivori, who preaches in Thailand, has stuck by Francis's side throughout his tour, providing help as a translator, explainer of local customs, and light comic relief during often-sombre prayers and political summits. On Thursday, she joined him for an audience with Thailand's King and Queen, at one point leaving him waiting in the car while she chatted with them, before catching up. The following evening, as Francis deviated from prepared remarks during a speech after prayers, she took a moment to write down and translate what he was saying.

The Queen today gave a defiant show of support for Prince Andrew as she took him riding today - the first time they have been seen together since he was fired from official duties. Her Majesty and her 'favourite son' rode in the rain through the grounds of Windsor Castle this morning just 48 hours after she effectively sacked him at the behest of Prince Charles who fears for the future of the royal family. Andrew was last night forced to pull out of a work junket to Bahrain this weekend after being persuaded by his family that it was 'not a good idea' following this week's dramatic events.

Saban Vatan has been searching for the truth for more than a year now — since the death of Rabia Naz. He wants to finally shed light on what happened to his 11-year-old daughter on April 12, 2018.
