Marcus Rashford has finally been given his well-overdue MBE, after first being included in the Queen's birthday honours list back in October 2020. The Manchester United striker attended the ceremony at Windsor Castle along with his mum, Melanie Rashford, on 9 Nov., where he received his MBE from Prince William.
Rashford has been a role model for thousands of people as a result of his many charitable efforts, most notably his 2020 campaign to encourage the government to continue providing free school meals to children. The player's social media campaign was then added to the GCSE curriculum, with students set to examine Rashford's positive online presence and how it led to government policy changes. He's also worked with Burberry to fund grants for local and international youth organisations. Essentially, if there was anyone deserving of an MBE, it'd be Marcus Rashford, and we're so pleased to see the player finally getting the recognition that he deserves.
According to BBC, Rashford - who wore a Burberry morning suit for the occasion designed by the brand's chief creative officer Riccardo Tisci - said post-ceremony that he'd be giving the MBE to his mum and that he'll continue to campaign to give children the things he didn't have growing up. "I see a generation that is coming after me as a very special generation. They just need a bit of guidance and pointing in the right direction and what I am doing is giving them that," he said.

When you have diabetes your sex life, just like everything else, is much more complicated. Whatever type of diabetes you have, whatever your gender and whoever you choose to have sex with, intimacy comes with a number of caveats and precautions that have to be negotiated. But thanks to the persistent taboo that surrounds talking about sex, as well as a lack of understanding about diabetes, the issue is rarely discussed. As a spokesperson for Diabetes UK puts it to R29: “Many people will experien
It bears repeating: the pandemic has changed the way we approach dating in more ways than one. Since the world has tentatively opened back up, we’ve thrown caution to the wind and embraced whim-taking alongside creative, fun and joyful spontaneity in our burgeoning relationships. This practice is so popular that it has even been given a very millennial moniker: ‘spontani-dating’. “When there were a few restrictions, you had to get more creative and find different common grounds other than going
Lady Gaga is currently building Oscar buzz for her brilliant performance in House of Gucci, one of this year’s most stylish movies. In the buzzy crime biopic, Gaga transforms into Patrizia Reggiani, a woman who married into the rich and wealthy Gucci clan, but was never fully accepted. If she does receive Oscar recognition early next year, it will be Gaga’s second acting nomination following her nod for A Star Is Born. At this point, absolutely no one is questioning her acting chops. However, in

In October, Stella McCartney’s spring 2022 show opened with the voice of American mycologist Paul Stamets. It wasn’t the first time the British designer referenced fungi in her work. McCartney, known for pioneering sustainability in fashion and using cruelty-free materials in her work, previously unveiled a sports bra and leggings made from mushroom-based “leather” in March. But, with the debut of the label’s first-ever bag made from Mylo™, a trademarked mycelium-based material created by the bi
How well do you know your partner? Spend every day beside someone and it’s like an unintentional study of a living, breathing subject. Their smell. The curve of their face. The way they make coffee: strong, milky, right up to the rim, as if those messy extra millilitres are the urgent divide between awake and comatose. What would happen if, one day, you realised that you didn’t know them at all? That they were a stranger. That all the perceived intimacy you had shared was just scratching the sur

Senior Director of the System-Wide Special Pathogens Program in NYC told POPSUGAR "I think people should be more cautious as they travel for their holiday gatherings.
