RIO DE JANEIRO - When tour guide Pedro Andres arrived at the site historians call the most important physical evidence of the arrival of enslaved Africans to the Americas, the scene he found was familiar. The Valongo Wharf was empty. Addressing a family of Paraguayan tourists, Andres described its historic significance. At the height of the transatlantic slave trade, nearly 1 million enslaved Africans arrived on its cobbled stones, likely more than anywhere else in the world, and twice as many as were trafficked to all of the United States.

But Andres, who brings tourists to the wharf out of his own volition and not because it's recommended by his tour agency, saw little indication of that remarkable history. There are no memorials.

In the two years since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepped down as senior royals, only Harry has returned to the UK, with his team revealing that his precarious security situation means that his family feel unsafe doing so. He and his family are settled in California, so much so that Meghan has not been back to visit and neither has their two-year-old son Archie, who turns three in May. While living in the US, the couple has welcomed another addition to their family - seven-month-old daughter Lilibet - who has yet to come to the UK and meet relatives including her grandfather Prince Charles and great-grandmother the Queen. In a statement on Saturday Harry's lawyers revealed why his family has not come to visit the UK, saying that their own private security doesn't cut it, the Mirror reports. The statement explains that while in the UK, they would need specialist police protection, which was taken away when they stepped down as royals - not just a … [Read more...] about Prince Harry ‘needs police protection for 5 specific reasons’ including neo-Nazi threats
