The Queen, 93, remained unruffled today as she was hit in the face with a black scarf while at the Royal Windsor Cup Polo match - much to the horror of actress Gillian Anderson (left) who was standing by. The actress seemed particularly disturbed by the unintentional breach of protocol which saw a fellow polo-goer reach to save her scarf from the queen's face as she descended the stairs from the royal viewing box. Despite the incident the Queen was full of smiles and appeared well rested as she greeted guests today, at her sixth engagement in seven days. Her Majesty stunned in a bold pink coat and pretty floral dress, donning a pearl necklace and matching earrings for the event.
UK could join Trump in a war on Iran, says Jeremy Hunt - as tensions rise after Tehran missile systems were hit by US cyber attack
EXCLUSIVE: The Foreign Secretary (top) confirmed the UK would consider requests for support 'on a case-by-case basis'.

Tens of thousands celebrate blow for Turkey's power-hungry President Erdogan as his party loses Istanbul mayoral election AGAIN - after he demanded the vote be RERUN when his candidate lost
Ekrem Imamoglu (top left) of Republican People's Party greeted his supporters (main image) as they gathered during his speech after the Istanbul mayoral elections re-run. The outcome means Turkey's largest city won't be governed by Erdogan's (top right) party or its predecessor for the first time in 25 years. Imamoglu narrowly won a previous mayoral election on March 31, but Erdogan's Justice and Development Party challenged the vote. Turkey's electoral board annulled the results after weeks of partial recounts. Imamoglu served 18 days as mayor and was stripped of the post with the board's order for a another election. Former businessman and district mayor Imamoglu, 49, said 'Thank You, Instabul' in a televised victory speech tonight. And his fans took to the streets in huge numbers, waving Turkey flags and setting off flares as they chanted 'Mayor again! Mayor again!' (bottom left and right).

Mr Hunt today swiped that Mr Johnson - who bluntly refused to answer questions on the episode at hustings yesterday - was dodging scrutiny. And he painted himself as the leader who could hold the union together - saying he would prioritise that over securing Brexit 'every time'.

World Cup chaos: England win 3-0 as Cameroon players 'cry in the tunnel and accuse FIFA of racism' when VAR decisions go in England's favour during VERY ill-tempered last-16 clash
England got off to a winning start in their first knock-out match of the Women's World Cup in France. The Lionesses pulled through the emotionally-charged game, winning 3-0 over Cameroon. The African nation, also known as the Indomitable Lionesses, saw controversy from the start of the match, with defender Augustine Ejangue facing a backlash for spitting at England's Toni Duggan in the 13th minute. Seconds later, Steph Houghton drove home an indirect free-kick from inside the penalty area. A second game soon after form the boot of Ellen White in the 45+4th minute (right and bottom middle pulled a glasses gesture as she celebrates). It had been disallowed by the referee, but overturned by the video assistant referee (VAR) system. This proved a turning point in the match, with the Cameroon players in uproar, with them wasting three minutes before restarting the game (left and bottom left). Referee Qin Liang tried to calm the incensed players, but issued no cards for the blatant time wasting. The players soon left the field, with reports emerging that the Cameroonians had burst into tears in the tunnel and accused FIFA of racism over the VAR decision. Tensions were further raise when the players took back to the field and Cameroon netted their first, only for it to be ruled out by VAR for offside. Striker Ajara Nchout particularly seemed inconsolable as coach Alain Djeumfa tried to control his players. To add insult to injury, Alex Greenwood soon made it three for the Lionesses, with an excellent run into the box to tuck away Toni Duggan's corner in the 57th minute.

Has 'appalling aristocrat' got any shame? Sir Benjamin Slade accused two mothers of getting pregnant to 'spite him', but after they won a court case but he still owes them £150k
Sir Benjamin Slade (inset), who was ordered to pay two women £150,000 after they won a sexual discrimination case against him in Somerset, is yet to cough up a single penny.

In November 2017, Roxanne was not paid and Melissa didn't receive her maternity pay. When Roxanne complained, Sir Benjamin called her maternity pay 'f***ing entitlements'.
