Katherine Jenkins

After taking some time off with her new daughter Aaliyah, the singer will return to the stage this year at Herrington Country Park on May 6, as part of a series of shows around the UK. Katherine has been asked to sing at the Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations in May this year, which will take place at the Royal Windsor Horse Show. This will be followed by Katherine’s 11th studio album.

Mont Blanc held a party in a specially-built ice palace at the foot of Mont Blanc. It was beyond awesome!
