Meghan and Harry latest – Top royal RAGING that Duchess won't put Prince Harry's duties before her own career
THE Duke of Edinburgh is secretly "very disappointed" that Meghan Markle refuses put Prince Harry's royal duties before her own career.
Prince Philip famously gave up his beloved career in the Royal Navy in order to stand by the Queen and do what's best for the monarchy.
Now insiders believe he is shocked that Meghan has refused to do the same, worrying that the Duchess is following in Diana's footsteps and trying to turn the royal family into a popularity contest.
Speaking to Sky News royal biographer Ingrid Seward said “I think he's very, very disappointed… he just cannot understand why she couldn't support Harry and help him rather than wanting to have her voice.”

Body language expert Judi James said that Meghan put on a “slightly defensive” display during Tuesday's summit, adding that she spoke with a “misunderstood tone”.

MEGHAN'S NUTRITIONIST SAYS YOGHURT IS THE SECRET TO HER FIGURE
Gabriela Peacock, who shaped Meghan's pre-wedding diet, has claimed that eating a spoonful of yoghurt before every meal can aid weight loss.
She claims the dairy dish will help blitz body fat by tricking your body into reducing insulin and blood sugar spikes.
The model turned nutritionist told The Telegraph: “I tell my clients to eat some spoonfuls of yoghurt before a meal.
“By starting your meal with protein as opposed to carbohydrate, you reduce the insulin and blood sugar spikes that come from releasing carbs into your blood stream.
“So having a bit of yoghurt – or some cheese or ham – is a useful trick.”
JEREMY CORBYN GAVE MEG A BOOK OF POETRY

The Duchess of Sussex is said to have taken a two-hour lesson including how to hold a cup and saucer and how to use a knife and fork.
The etiquette class was led by Edmund Fry, who runs the Rose Tree Cottage tea room in Pasadena, California.

He advised her how to sip her tea, place the cutlery in the correct position – and other etiquette rules such as what to do with the napkin.
THE PATRIOTIC SIGN MEG HAS IN HER HOME
Meghan showcased her love of her new home with an “I love you California” print in her Santa Barbara mansion during a recent Zoom call.

PRINCE PHILIP 'DISAPPOINTED IN MEGHAN'
Prince Philip is “very disappointed” that Meghan Markle hasn’t supported the monarchy, an expert has claimed.
The Duke of Edinburgh, 99, couldn’t understand why the Duchess of Sussex couldn’t give up her career as he had been forced to do when the Queen ascended the throne in 1952.
Speaking to Sky News, royal biographer Ingrid Seward explained: “I think he's very, very disappointed because I think he feels he gave up his naval career in order to stand by the Queen and help the monarchy.
“And why can't Meghan just give up her acting career, support her husband and support the monarchy?”
SOMETHING IN COMMON
Meghan’s son Archie and Princess Eugenie’s baby could have something in common when the tot arrives next year.
If Eugenie decides to give birth in the same hospital that she was born in back in 1990, then the new royal baby and Archie Harrison will immediately share a similar story.
Meghan welcomed Archie, one, in London's The Portland Hospital back in May 2019.
Meanwhile, Eugenie and her sister, Princess Beatrice, were also born in the American-owned hospital.
In fact, when Sarah Ferguson gave birth to eldest daughter Beatrice in August 1988, it made her the first member of the royal family to give birth in a non-NHS hospital.
MEGHAN’S SNACKING HABITS REVEALED
Meghan has spoken a fair bit about her diet in the past, and confirmed that one of her go-to healthy snacks is watermelon.
In a past interview, she said: “On set and at home, I try to always have a container of watermelon sprinkled with cinnamon because it elevates the flavour just a notch, and makes it feel special.”
The mum-of-one also prefers a healthy drink to gorging on takeaways.
Speaking of her fast food choices, she told The Chalkboard in a past chat: “A green juice. That’s fast. And it’s food. It’s been many moons since I went through a drive thru.”
PRINCE HARRY & MEGHAN CAN'T STOP 'YAPPING'
Piers Morgan slammed Meghan Markle and Prince Harry as “yapping and whining” in an extended TV rant this morning.
Speaking on Good Morning Britain, Piers hit out at the pair after Meghan, 39, spoke at Fortune's Most Powerful Women Summit by video link, saying the current coronavirus pandemic was forcing people to “go through a reset”.
She also said that “bots and trolls” were changing the way people interacted with each other, both online and in person.
Describing Meghan and Harry as “yapping every day”, Piers added: “Ironically she said this on the day she lost part of her court battle.”
Yesterday she lost a court bid to block claims she allegedly co-operated with the authors of Finding Freedom.

'AMAZING' LA LOCKDOWN
Meghan Markle has said she enjoyed an 'amazing' coronavirus lockdown in Los Angeles with Prince Harry.
Speaking at Fortune's Most Powerful Women Summit by video link, Meghan said: “For me, it’s been amazing to spend time with my husband and watch our little one [son Archie] grow and that’s where our attention has been.
“In addition to, of course, how we can be a part of the change of energy that so many people are craving right now and whatever we can do to help in that capacity.”
DO SUSSEXES LIKE FINDING FREEDOM AUTHOR?
In a new interview with Tatler, Finding Freedom author Omid Scobie, 38, said that Meghan Markle's friends who didn't want her to be involved in the book 'changed their minds six months later' over how she'd been treated. Also:
- Scobie had to call police over threats to burn his house down
- And he revealed he is a glutton for detail and got great scoops thanks to his “natural knack for lip reading”
- The author blames two NDAs for preventing him from telling the truth on the dismissals of two Sussex staffers
- Scobie 'doesn't even know if the Sussexes like him' – and said: “Press is press and there'll always be that distance”
The Coronavirus pandemic sweeping the globe is the ‘pause Prince Harry needed’, Finding Freedom author Omid Scobie says.
In a new interview with Tatler, Scobie, 38, said that without Covid-19 – which has killed a million people worldwide – Prince Harry would have started a charity immediately.
But instead, the author insists, it's given the Duke of Sussex a breather following his shift from the UK to America.
“It's a pause he's needed, and he wouldn't have had it he'd arrived in LA and gone straight into launching the non-profit,” Mr Scobie said.
Harry himself called the pandemic “devastating and destructive” in a video recorded at his California home.
'BUZZ' AROUND MEGHAN AND HARRY'S NETFLIX SHOW
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's animated Netflix series about inspiring women is “creating a lot of buzz in the industry”, a source has claimed.
An industry source told Vanity Fair: “There’s a lot of buzz about it, it is going ahead and work has started on the series.”
Netflix has previously said: “The couple already have several projects in development, including an innovative nature docuseries and an animated series that celebrates inspiring women.
“But we are not disclosing any of the programming slate at this time.”
MEGHAN MARKLE SHOWS EMOTIONAL SIDE
The Duchess of Sussex emphasised her “emotional side” in her video appearance at Fortune's Most Powerful Women Summit.
Body language expert Judi James told The Mirror:“Meghan emphasizes her emotional side again with the mention of tears and as she looks away dramatically to consider her thoughts as she speaks it is the shaking of her head that suggests a sense of bewilderment or disbelief.”
MEGHAN 'SHOWED SIGNS OF ANGER' IN LATEST APPEARANCE
A body language expert has said that the Duchess of Sussex “showed signs of anger” in her latest video appearance.
Meghan, 39, spoke at Fortune's Most Powerful Women Summit by video link, saying the current coronavirus pandemic was forcing people to “go through a reset”.
Judi James told The Mirror: “The splaying and pit-baring looks confident and gently powerful, as does the preen gesture with her hair, while the very subtle lower jaw-jut and a few sharp, accelerated blinks hint at some anger, although her tone overall signals bewilderment from a woman who tells us she has not been controversial in what she says in the past.”
MEGHAN NOT CONTROVERSIAL ENOUGH FOR PIERS MORGAN
Meghan Markle assumes she is “right about everything”, says Piers Morgan.
The Good Morning Britain presenter was reacting to news of the Duchess of Sussex telling Fortune's Most Powerful Women Summit: “If you look back at anything that I’ve said, it’s really interesting because what ends up being inflammatory it seems is people’s interpretations of it.
“But if you listen to what I actually say, it’s not controversial.”
Piers pointed out: “She says nothing she says is ever controversial.”
He added that Meghan “says she no longer reacts to anything whether it's critical or positive.
“She doesn't notice it, she doesn't react to it.
“What she really means is 'nothing I say is controversial because I'm right about everything'; this is this kind of liberal, woke thing.”
MEGHAN IS A 'VERY PRIVATE LADY'
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were slammed as “yapping and whining” in an extended TV rant this morning by Piers Morgan.
Speaking on Good Morning Britain, he hit out at the pair after Meghan, 39, spoke at Fortune's Most Powerful Women Summit by video link, saying the current coronavirus pandemic was forcing people to “go through a reset”.
Piers took objection to Meghan's contribution and teased that, despite the pair's repeated requests for privacy, they were more prevalent than ever.
“The Duchess of Sussex has popped again, in her daily address to the world,” he laughed.
“She's a very private lady, as you know,” he added – calling her “my old friend.”
“There's not a day that goes by without these two whining, complaining, suing.”

MEGHAN & HARRY 'ALWAYS YAPPING' – PIERS MORGAN
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been accused of “yapping” by Piers Morgan, reports the Mirror.
On Good Morning Britain today, Susanna Reid suggested he shouldn't react to stories about the couple.
She said: “You could just do a news blackout on them.”
But a wound-up Morgan fired back: “I could leave them alone if they just leave us alone.
“And not a second of the day goes by when these two aren't yapping!”
PIERS MORGAN SLAMS MEGHAN MARKLE
Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan has again let rip at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Noting that Meghan spoke at a £10,000-a-head Fortune's Most Powerful Women Summit, Morgan said his “old friend Meghan” has “popped up again”.
He mocked: “She's a very private lady, and in her daily address to the world, she's told in an online conference, hosted by Fortune magazine that nothing she ever says is controversial.
“This is just, obviously, after she's told Americans how to vote in the election.
“She also said that she no longer reacts to anything – whether it's critical or positive. She doesn't notice it, she doesn't react to it.”
MEGHAN & KIM KARDASHIAN SHARE FAMILY SCANDALS
Meghan Markle’s family have been in the spotlight since she first began dating Prince Harry and, just like Kim Kardashian, she has had to deal with a fair few scandals.
Her father Thomas has given a series of damning interviews about her, claiming she has shunned him — while also staging paparazzi photos of himself.
Meghan and Harry will feature in a fly-on-the-wall documentary series to give a “glimpse of their lives”, as part of their £112million Netflix deal.
It has strong echoes of 39-year-old Kim’s own show Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
However, Kim insists she sympathises with the Sussexes’ pleas for privacy.
In a television interview, she said: “I can definitely empathise with their need for having a secure, safe place.”
