Article 1:

    Sir Thomas Sean Connery (born August 25, 1930), better known simply as Sean Connery, is a Scottish actor who has starred in many Hollywood films.

    He was born in Edinburgh, Scotland. He joined the Royal Navy after leaving school, and after being discharged on medical grounds went on to a succession of jobs, including labourer and lifeguard. He competed for Scotland in the Mr. Universe competition in 1953, which led to work on the stage, TV, and eventually film.

    Connery has long advocated greater independence for Scotland, and has supported the Scottish National Party financially and through personal appearances, despite himself living in the Bahamas. Although extremely popular throughout the United Kingdom, he was turned down for a knighthood in 1997 and 1998, allegedly because of supporting the Scottish National Party, a Scottish separatist group. The British government finally relented, and he was made a Knight Bachelor on July 5, 2000. He had received Kennedy Center Honors from the United States only a few months before. Connery is well known to audiences around the world for his role as James Bond. Connery first appeared as Bond in Dr. No (1962), and played Bond in several other films, including:

    ; Never Say Never Again (1983)

    ; Diamonds are Forever (1971)

    ; You Only Live Twice (1967)

    ; Thunderball (1965)

    ; Goldfinger (1964)

    ; From Russia With Love (1963)

    Connery has also appeared in other major films, including:

    ; The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2003)

    ; Finding Forrester (2000)

    ; Entrapment (1999])

    ; The Rock (1996)

    ; The Hunt for Red October (1990)

    ; Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989)

    ; The Untouchables (1987) (for which he won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor)

    ; The Name of the Rose (1986)

    ; Highlander (1986)

    ; Outland (1981)

    ; Ffolkes (1980)

    ; A Bridge Too Far (1977)

    ; The Man Who Would Be King (1975)

    ; Zardoz (1973)

    ; Marnie (1964) (directed by Alfred Hitchcock)

    Connery is known for his trademark Scottish accent and his good looks, repeatedly being mentioned as one of the most attractive men alive by magazines even after he was considerably older than more conventional sex symbols.

    He is the father of Jason Connery, also an actor, who was born January 11, 1963.

Article 2:

    British royalty. Born Henry Charles Albert David on September 15, 1984, in London, England. As the second son of Princess Diana and Prince Charles, Prince Harry is third in line to the English throne, behind his older brother William. He has grown up under intense media scrutiny, having his personal tragedies as well as his antics and gaffes as the subject of numerous news reports. His mother once described Prince Harry as "very artistic and sporty." At an early age, he developed an interest in riding and hunting. While the family lived in Kensington Palace during the week, they often spent the weekends at Highgrove House, their family's estate in Gloucestershire. Their mother strove to give both her sons "as normal a life as possible" despite their privileged position in British society. To this end, Prince Harry attended Mrs. Mynors nursery school in London's Notting Hill neighbourhood. Princess Diana also took Prince Harry and his brother to amusement parks, fast-food restaurants, and other places frequented by other children their age.

    Photographers were on hand as his parents dropped Prince Harry off for his first day at school in September of 1987. According to Ingrid Seward's William & Harry, the young prince had a difficult

    time adjusting to school initially. Despite his parents' increasingly strained marriage, he became known for his happy-go-lucky disposition as a child. Prince Harry also developed an interest in all things military as he matured.

    In 1989, Prince Harry enrolled at the Wetherby School, where his older brother William was already a student. He then followed his brother to the Ludgrove School, a boarding school in Berkshire, in 1992. Around this time, he was reportedly informed of his parents' impending separation, which was officially announced that December. The couple divorced in 1996.

    After the separation, Prince Harry and Prince William spent their school holidays dividing their time between their parents. They spent time at Highgrove with their father, enjoying outdoor pursuits, as well as going on official trips and vacations abroad. With their mother, they engaged in a variety of activities from going on tropical holidays to visiting AIDS clinics and homeless shelters. Prince Harry remained at Balmoral for several days after his mother's death, mourning in seclusion with his family. He then travelled to London with his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, and his brother, to prepare for Princess Diana's funeral. On September 6, Prince Harry walked past thousands of people who had gathered to say good-bye to the woman many had dubbed "the people's princess." He trailed behind his mother's coffin in the funeral procession along with his brother, father, and grandfather, Prince Phillip.

    After the service, Prince Harry and other family members travelled to Althrop, his mother's family estate in Northampton owned by his uncle Charles, the 9th Earl of Spencer. His mother's body was laid to rest on an island in the middle of a lake on the grounds there.
