Where will Prince Philip be buried, will he have a state funeral and where are other royals buried? The Duke of Edinburgh may have a low-key ceremony.
Brussels to assess if Hungary’s new ban on sharing LGBT content with under-18s breaches EU law – von der Leyen
The president of the European Commission has announced the body is looking into whether Hungarys ban on the sharing of homosexual and transgender content to those under 18 years of age is a breach of EU law.
The ban was included as part of a new bill aiming to clamp down on pedophilia, which was passed by Hungary’s National Assembly by a majority of 157 to one on Tuesday. Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s ruling Fidesz party said the law states that adverts and school sex-education lessons “must not be aimed at changing gender or promoting homosexuality.”
On Wednesday, Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said she was “very concerned about the new law in Hungary.”
“We are assessing if it breaches relevant EU legislation,” the head of the EU’s executive said in a tweet.

We are assessing if it breaches relevant EU legislation.
I believe in a Europe which embraces diversity, not one which hides it from our children.
No one should be discriminated on the basis of sexual orientation.
Fidesz parliamentary leader Mate Kocsis has said the new anti-pedophilia law was necessary to ensure that perpetrators receive tougher punishments and children are not exposed to inappropriate content.
