Even though George V proclaimed all German titles were to be given up by his family a century ago (July 17 1917), there is still physical evidence in our city of the Germanic royal house that once existed. Two commemoration stones relating to members of the royal house previous to the House of Windsor are so readily a part of the fabric of our daily lives but are probably in the most part overlooked.

A walk along Queen Street and on the corner with Aylward Street will present a building with a foundation stone that was laid by HRH Princess Henry of Battenberg in 1912. This was the married title of Queen Victoria's daughter Beatrice which was relinquished on 14 July 1917. From 17 July 1917 she was known as HRH the Princess Beatrice.

A FORMER Pompey star joined a crop of fellow celebrities as Celebrity Big Brother returned to television screens tonight.

Jamie O’Hara, 30, who played as a midfielder for Pompey in the 2009-10 season, entered the reality show as it launched its 19th series.

The former Pompey player of the season joined the likes of rapper Ray J and former series contestants Jasmine Waltz and James Jordan.

The footballer is currently without a club after he and former club Gillingham agreed to terminate his two-year contract last September due to injury problems.

He said: ‘I think people have a massively wrong perception of me. I’m a joker, I like to have a laugh.

‘I do not like to get mugged off. It’s going to be exciting.

‘I’m going to be a team player and throw myself into it.’
