Sarah Lyall, a longtime London correspondent for The Times, reflected on Prince Harry’s engagement to Meghan Markle, a divorced American who is biracial, and what it means for Britain: “The engagement is significant, in part as a frivolously welcome distraction at a time of unrelenting bad news about the economy, about Britain’s painful ‘Brexit’ from Europe and about Britain’s place in the world.

The company is weighing where to list its shares.Credit Fayez Nureldine/Agence France-Presse — Getty ImagesLONDON — Stock markets around the world have been fighting hard for the chance to handle the stock market listing of Aramco, the giant oil company owned by the Saudi Arabian government.But the New York Stock Exchange on Saturday gained an unusual public backer: President Trump.In a tweet, Mr. Trump urged Saudi Arabia to pick the Big Board as the international venue for the initial public offering of Aramco. “ Important to the United States!” he wrote.Other politicians have argued in favor of their homegrown stock exchanges, including Prime Minister Theresa May of Britain and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan, though they have done so privately. Mr. Trump, as is his habit, turned to Twitter to bolster the Big Board’s case.Aramco, whose listing would easily be the biggest-ever I.P.O. and which is expected to be valued at several hundred billion dollars, is weighing which international stock market will list its shares.Continue reading the main storyThe N.Y.S.E. has competed fiercely against foreign rivals, particularly the London Stock Exchange, for the privilege.

Llivia Journal: This Catalan Town Has Already Broken From Spain, Physically at Least

For over 350 years, Llivia has remained effectively landlocked as a Spanish enclave inside France.Today Llivia is connected to the rest of Spain by the thinnest of filaments, the N-154, a “neutral” road that passes less than two miles through France and connects Llivia to the nearest town in Spain, Puigcerda, a couple of hours’ drive from Barcelona.“The Spanish police were never going to go through France to prevent the people from voting here,” Llivia’s mayor, Elies Nova, said with a smile.FranceLlivia(spain)N20EstavarN-154N116PuigcerdaSpain4 milesFRANCECATALONIAPORTUGALBarcelonaMadridSPAIN200 milesBeing enveloped by French territory gave Llivia certain tactical advantages as it faced many of the same hurdles as other parts of Catalonia to carry out a vote declared illegal by the Spanish government.On referendum day, when a mysterious internet shutdown hit the Spanish enclave, Llivia’s mayor decided to use the French internet connection so the vote could proceed, said Laurent Leygue, the mayor of the neighboring French town Estavar.“As a precautionary measure, they even took the ballots from Llivia to France to count the votes,” said Mr. Leygue, who joined the cheerful crowd on referendum day.Given their unusual position, Llivia’s residents have long maintained a strong sense of independence.“This can partly be explained by the peculiar history of the town,” said Marc Delcor, 35, the director of the municipal museum, which is home to the remains of the medieval Esteve Pharmacy, one of the oldest pharmacies in Europe.Continue reading the main story“The inhabitants needed that sense of belonging, especially after Franco,” he added, referring to the dictator Gen. Francisco Franco, whose death in 1975 opened the way for Spain’s democracy.So it is perhaps no surprise that support for independence from Spain runs strong in Llivia, even if it is unclear what independence would actually mean.On referendum day, Llivia voted overwhelmingly in favor of separating from Spain, according to officials — “561 votes out of 591 in favor of the sí,” Mayor Nova said proudly.PhotoLlivia remained part of Spain after the 1659 Treaty of the Pyrenees stipulated that villages were to be ceded to France, while Llivia was considered a town.Credit Samuel Aranda for The New York TimesSupporters of the separatist movement in Livia even broke a Guinness World Record by lighting about 82,000 candles in the form of the Estelada, the pro-independence flag, just before the referendum was held.“It was a beautiful, very unique moment,” Ms. Cortizo said. “The whole village was there to sing ‘Els Segadors,’ the official national anthem of Catalonia.”In the tumultuous aftermath of the vote, Ms. Cortizo was among the around 200,000 people who demonstrated in Barcelona in support of the two secessionist leaders jailed following an order by a Spanish court.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyThank you for subscribing.An error has occurred.
