Royal family members joined the Queen for a Sunday Service in Balmoral this morning - but Prince Andrew and the Duchess of York were conspicuously absent. The royal outing came hours after video footage - obtained by the Mail On Sunday - emerged of Prince Andrew, 59, at paedophile Jeffrey Epstein's £63million Manhattan mansion on December 6, 2010. The Duke of York - then the UK's Special Representative for International Trade - was spotted peering around the door of the billionaire sex offender's home, less than an hour after Epstein left the house in the company of a young, shivering blonde woman. Last Sunday, the Queen made a public show of support by allowing her second eldest son to sit next to her as they were driven to the church service. This week Andrew is in Spain with the Duchess of York amid gorwing questions over his relationship with the billionaire paedophile who killed himself in a Manhattan prison last Saturday.
Rugby League player Archie Bruce, 20, is found dead in his hotel room just hours after making his debut for under-strength professional team that was hammered 46-0
Batley Bulldogs scrum-half Archie Bruce, 20, has been found dead only hours after making his debut for Batley Bulldogs last night against Toulouse.

They went on to lose 46-0 and the team stayed in the French city overnight. Earlier in the week, Batley head coach Matt Diskin said the debut would be a 'baptism of fire' as they were facing one of the best teams in the league with a number of key players missing due to their wives giving birth. Many rugby league stars have been leading the tributes this morning including former England players Alex Walmsley and Jermaine McGillvary.

The Royals (left, with baby Archie) used the £15million plane (stock inset) on a trip to Nice (right) in the South of France just 48 hours after it was revealed they used one for a secret six-day trip to Ibiza. Their choice of a private jet has attracted widespread criticism given their regular comments about the need to protect the environment. Harry and Meghan took a 12-seat Cessna Citation Sovereign to the French Riviera and arrived on Wednesday, in a trip that would have created seven times more emissions per person than a commercial flight and cost more than £20,000 to hire.

Prince Andrew is pictured inside paedophile Jeffrey Epstein's £63million mansion of depravity nine years ago... so how did he miss signs of the billionaire's sexual deviance?
The footage of the Duke of York (left) - then the UK's Special Representative for International Trade - was taken less than an hour after Epstein, who had been convicted of sex with a child in 2008, left the house in the company of a young, shivering blonde woman (right). The video was shot on December 6, 2010, during a visit by the Prince to Epstein's nine-storey 21,000 square foot mansion dubbed the 'House of Horrors' by many of his young victims. The Duke has vehemently denied claims by Epstein's alleged 'sex slave' Virginia Roberts that she had sex with the Prince on three occasions, the first when she was 17 and once at the US millionaire's now-notorious 40-room mansion at 9 East 71st Street in Manhattan, the setting of these pictures
The tantalising mystery of Ghislaine Maxwell's burger bar 'makeover' as conspiracy theorists ask why she 'took off her glasses while reading a book and had TWO drinks next to her'

Lord Mountbatten 'was a homosexual with a lust for young boys' claims secret FBI dossier compiled by American agents seeking dirt on British statesmen during World War Two and the Suez Crisis
The US intelligence files describe the 1st Earl Mountbatten of Burma (pictured left with Prince Charles) and his wife Edwina (together, right) as 'persons of extremely low morals' who frequently had extramarital affairs. The 75-year-old FBI documents were obtained through a freedom of information request by British historian Andrew Lownie, who has written a biography of the couple.

Brexit Begins: Stephen Barclay signs 'commencement order' formally starting the process that will take Britain out of the EU on October 31 whatever happens
Senior Tory Brexiteers previously said the signing of the document was 'totemic' and a 'do-or-die' pledge confirming the UK will be leaving the EU. Theresa May had angered Brexiteers by refusing to sign the order and instead agreeing to delay Brexit with the EU until October 31. Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay (left) is now understood to have signed the document.

No Deal Brexit doomsday dossier is 'Project Fear scaremongering' say ministers after documents predict fuel, food and medicine shortages and Irish border chaos on Oct 31
Operation Yellowhammer, a secret dossier filed by the Cabinet Office this month, exposes the areas that could be most vulnerable if the UK leaves the EU without a deal on October 31. The explosive revelations marked 'official-sensitive' include the expectation of a return of a hard border in Ireland due to the inability to roll-out the government's proposed limited checks. The papers reveal this could lead to protests, road blockades and 'direct action.' Massive tailbacks at ports could limit fuel distribution and disrupt the supply across the southeast of England, including London. As many as 85% of lorries headed to France could be hit with delays of 60 hours and it could take up to three months before the flow of traffic reaches 75% of current levels. appearing on Ridge on Sunday today, energy minister Kwasi Kwarteng said the government will be 'fully prepared to leave without a deal on October 31.' He said: 'I think there is a lot of scaremongering around, and a lot of people are playing into project fear and all the rest of it. We've got to prepare for no deal, in fact the previous Prime Minister created DExEU (Department for Exiting the European Union) and said the mandate of DExEU last summer was to prepare for no deal, that's what we were focused on. Now we have a new Prime Minister focused on that and the scale and intensity of those preparations are increasing and we will be fully prepared to leave without a deal on October 31.'

Then they set about clearing the land they had accessed of its wild plants, gathering them to build and light a bonfire, filling the air with fumes. Among those looking on aghast was a pensioner couple who knew why the Dorans were there.

Famous baby sea cow dies from eating plastic waste a week after it was rescued by marine experts in Thailand
Large ocean mammal dugong Marium, pictured above rubbing against a canoe and with researchers inset, was first found off southern Thailand earlier this year after she got lost from her mother. Photos of marine biologists embracing and feeding her with milk and sea grass went viral all over the globe after being uploaded to social media. But the lovable mammal died last week after she was left bruised by an attack by a male dugong during the mating season, dying of a combination of shock and ingesting plastic. Her autopsy showed a big amount of plastic waste in her intestine, which could also have played a part in her death as it led to gastritis and blood infection, according to spokesman Jatuporn Buruspat from Thailand's Department of Marine and Coastal Resources. Director general Mr Buruspat said: 'We assume she wandered off too far from her natural habitat and was chased and eventually attacked by another male dugong, or dugongs, as they feel attracted to her. She must have thought these plastics were edible'.
