    Princess Charlotte made her long-awaited debut on May 2, less than two years after her older brother, Prince George, was born.

"Frankly, it's taken us a little longer than anticipated," says John Beaucage, chair of the fund's board of trustees.

  • Shaquille O'Neal swears he'd be 'a Laker to this day' but for Karl Malone's 2004 knee injury

    Despite the troubling (to say the absolute least) rape allegations against Kobe Bryant, despite Shaquille O’Neal’s stated demands for a contract extension, Shaq’s clear weight issues, and the obvious and simmering tension between the two players, the Los Angeles Lakers came out of the 2003-04 regular season going great guns. Coach Phil Jackson would later write that he didn’t think his team’s early good fortune was sustainable, but the Lakers were running at 20-5 when forward Karl Malone hurt his left knee in a collision with Phoenix’s Scott Williams. The future Hall of Famer played terrific basketball in the postseason as well, scoring 30 points and 13 rebounds in one close-out game against Houston, before yet another knee injury curtailed his output and before eventually sidelining him for the Lakers’ final game of the season – a Finals-clinching loss to Detroit.
