The Supreme Court will try to pick a way forward this week, but ultimately, it could come down to Queen Elizabeth II to pick side. And that's something the Queen will be desperate to avoid. The court case hinges on whether Prime Minister Boris Johnson misled the monarch…

"We feel it is accurate to describe these events as rape," said Dr. Laura Hawks, a primary care physician and research fellow at Harvard Medical School who co-authored the study.…
