Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall Arrive in Cuba for First-Ever Official Royal Visit

Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall Arrive in Cuba for First-Ever Official Royal Visit

Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall just made royal history!

The couple touched down for the latest stop of their 12-day Caribbean tour on Sunday in Cuba, marking the first time that members of the British royal family have made an official visit to the country. (Queen Elizabeth has never made a state visit to Cuba, which came under Communist rule in 1959 by Fidel Castro.)

Charles, 70, and Camilla, 71, will explore the cultural and academic connections between the U.K. and Cuba, including key themes, such as the arts, youth entrepreneurship, heritage restoration and sustainable agriculture.

Following an official welcome, the royal couple started their trip with a wreath-laying ceremony at the memorial of Cuba’s national hero, essayist and poet José Martí.

Charles and Camilla will explore Havana for a second day on Tuesday, meeting owners of classic British cars and paying a visit to a Cuban music recording studio. The couple will also visit one of the country’s leading dance studios, and the Prince of Wales will travel out of Havana to learn more about renewable energy and organic farming in Cuba. The duo will later attend a reception hosted by the British Ambassador.

When It Comes to Dating, Millennials Put Politics Over Good Sex: Survey

When It Comes to Dating, Millennials Put Politics Over Good Sex: Survey

Politics are becoming increasingly more important to young people when looking for a potential romantic partner — but having fireworks in the bedroom isn’t, according to reported data from OKCupid.

Between 2016 and 2018, the number of millennial women — defined by Pew Research as those born between 1981 and 1996 — who prioritized dating someone with similar political opinions than having good sex increased from 27 percent to 42 percent, the dating service found, according to the New York Post.

An increase was also noted in millennial men, with the amount increasing from 23 percent to 30 percent.

Additionally, the company found that placing more value on politics than what goes on under the sheets isn’t a new trend. Since 2004, OKCupid’s data shows that the number of young people who preferred to date along party lines increased by 165 percent. Meanwhile, the amount of people who placed high value on having a fulfilling sex life decreased by 30 percent.

Explaining a possible link between political opinions and what happens in the bedroom, sex therapist Megan Fleming told the Post that having so much common ground with your partners can have an adverse effect on your sex life.

“If you’re only exposing yourself to people who think like you, you’re living in a silo and missing out on opportunities,” she explained.

“The best sex I’ve ever had was with a guy who I’m fairly sure was a Republican,” 30-year-old Democrat Jen Winston told the outlet. “If I had known he was a Republican, I probably would not have engaged. But if I had known how good the sex was gonna be, I probably would have gone through with it still.”

And it’s not just having political opinions that are important to millennials — they also want their potential romantic partners to get out and vote.

Ahead of the midterm elections last year, USA Today reported that OkCupid found 85 percent of millennials said voting was “extremely or very important” to them on their dating profiles.

“We added more and more questions about the midterms. Questions like

Trump Did Not Conspire with Russians in Election But Is Not Fully Exonerated: Special Counsel

Trump Did Not Conspire with Russians in Election But Is Not Fully Exonerated: Special Counsel

After a nearly two-year investigation, Special Counsel Robert Mueller determined that President Donald Trump did not conspire with the Russian government to interfere with the 2016 election, the Attorney General William Barr says in a letter summarizing the highly anticipated report.

Though the special counsel thoroughly investigated the president’s actions, he and his team did not conclude “one way or the other” whether Trump has obstructed justice, Barr wrote Sunday in a four-page summary of the report’s “principal conclusions” to House and Senate Judiciary Committee members, the New York Times reports.

“While this report does not conclude that the president committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him,” Barr wrote, quoting Mueller in the report, the Washington Post reports.

In his summary, Barr wrote that Mueller and his team “did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia in its efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election,” CNN reports.

Mueller and his team investigated a number of actions by the president that “potentially” raised “obstruction of justice concerns” but said that in the end, it “did not draw a conclusion — one way or the other — as to whether the examined conduct constituted obstruction,” Barr says in the letter.

Democrats are demanding a full release of the report, MSNBC reports.

Trump, 72, meanwhile, claimed victory while addressing the White House press pool in Palm Beach, Florida, before boarding Air Force One for his previously scheduled return to Washington.

“After a long look, after a long investigation, after so many people have been so badly hurt, after not looking at the other side where a lot of bad things happened,” he said. “It was just announced there was no collusion with Russia,” Trump said, calling the collusion allegations, “the most ridiculous thing ever.”

“It was complete and total exoneration,” he said.

Man Arrested After Allegedly Kicking Elderly Woman in the Face on NYC Subway

Man Arrested After Allegedly Kicking Elderly Woman in the Face on NYC Subway

A man allegedly seen in viral video repeatedly kicking an elderly woman aboard a New York City subway train was arrested Saturday and charged with assault, PEOPLE confirms.

Marc Gomez, 36, of Yonkers, New York, was taken into custody Saturday and charged with three counts of assault and one count of harassment, a spokesperson for the New York Police Department tells PEOPLE.

A rep for the law firm for Gomez’s listed attorney, Steven Mechanic, declined to comment when reached by PEOPLE.

Online records show Gomez is being held on $15,000 bail at the Vernon C. Bain Center. He is next due in court on March 29.

The 78-year-old victim was previously treated and released from the hospital following the March 10 attack. She suffered bleeding, swelling and cuts to her face, according to the spokesperson.

NYPD Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea wrote about the apprehension on Twitter, adding that the victim is “getting the care, advocacy & support needed.”

“Thank you to the worldwide community for the tremendous assistance,” Shea wrote.

He also included a photo of Gomez that police had previously issued as a plea to the public for help in identifying him, with the words “Apprehended” written over it in large red letters.

The attack occurred March 10 just after 3 a.m. on a No. 2 train at the Nereid Ave. Station in the Bronx.

Video shared to social media shows a man wearing glasses, a black hat and coat and a patterned scarf forcefully kick a seated woman at least six times in the head and the stomach area.

The woman can be seen attempting to shield the blows with her arms as fellow riders yell “Ooooh” at each attack and continue to film.

The suspect is then seen exiting the train while the woman remains seated with her hands to her

It's a Naked and Afraid First! Matt & Brooke Wright Are the First Married Couple to Do the Show

It's a Naked and Afraid First! Matt & Brooke Wright Are the First Married Couple to Do the Show

For years, Brooke Benham Wright watched her husband Matt Wright go off on his Naked and Afraid adventures.

First he went to Thailand, where his camp was flooded. (He filmed a filmed his marriage proposal in the jungle.) From there, he went to Belize for a Naked and Afraid challenge with PEOPLE’s Steve Helling. Then he went to Ecuador, where he showed his wilderness skills by hunting a wild boar. And finally, he was marooned alone in Africa.

All the while, Brooke has watched. She has listened to his stories. She has interacted with his fans. She has been as supportive as humanly possible. But when it came to doing the show herself, she always said no.

“He’d come home with all these stories, and they all sounded cool,” Brooke tells PEOPLE, “but when anyone asked if I was going to do the show, I was like, ‘No, I’m good.'”

But finally, Brooke gave in. Before she knew it, she was stripping down in Africa, all in the name of adventure.

“Getting naked in front of people is weird for me,” Brooke tells PEOPLE, “and most of the crew are dudes, so there’s that, too. In that minute, I’m like, ‘Okay, this is crazy.’ But I was there, so I might as well do it.”

Brooke, an avid survivalist, is lethal with a bow and arrow. She says she felt comfortable with her skills — but she also knew she’d have to prove herself. (Naked and Afraid has a legion of superfans who watch the show religiously, and they are huge fans of the Wrights. Failure wasn’t much of an option.)

Matt tells PEOPLE that he knew Brooke would shine in the wilderness. “I know what she’s capable of doing,” he says. “I was dying the whole time to hear how she was doing. Each day would pass and I’d get no news — and I knew that was a good thing. I knew she was killing it out there.”

And did her hunting skills come in handy? PEOPLE has seen the episode but is sworn to secrecy.

Matt and Brooke both appear on this season of Naked and Afraid — but they’re not doing the show together. The day after Brooke got home from her adventure, Matt left to film his own Naked and Afraid experience.

“It was hard to leave her the very next day,” says Matt. “I got to hear the highlights, but you really do take several days to process the whole experience when you come back. I missed a
