6 Whose apparent half-nelson produced tears in Kiev (not to mention Cairo and Liverpool)?

    5 – the waterfalls are the Reichenbach Falls, so presumably this has something to do with faking death . This is ringing a vague bell, but I can’t think who.

    7. I think this may have something to do with Harry becoming Duke of Sussex – some bonus title or property he got at the same time?

    Re5: Oh, that was the journalist or was he a politician? who pretended to have been murdered by… the Russians, maybe? And then revealed he was alive a couple of days later.

    9. Dunno about “who” or “eternal” but I say full leg wax. Not bothered if wrong.
