Meghan Markle latest news – 'Arrogant' Prince Harry and Duchess 'INFURIATING A-list pals by acting like superior royals'

MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry will NEVER represent the Royal Family again despite acting like they do, it has been claimed.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were roundly criticised for treating their recent trip to New York like it was a state visit, meeting senior politicians and giving major speeches about vaccines and Covid-19.

Since humiliating the Royal Family early last year by very publicly quitting for the sake of their "privacy", the pair effectively gave up all royal duties.

Yet with Spotify podcasts, Netflix documentaries, major interviews and now even royal-style trips, Harry and Meghan have been accused of setting up an "alternative" Royal Family, milking their fame to seem more important.

But royal commentator Charles Rae reminded readers of Entertainment Daily: "They are no longer active members of the royal family and do not represent the royal family on anything… They made it clear they wanted to have private lives but continually invade their own privacy."

    Meghan’s peace offering to Kate

    In November 2018, it was reported “Meghan left Kate in tears” over her demands for Princess Charlotte’s flower girl dress during a “stressful” fitting.

    It was then subsequently claimed that the “rift” began when Kate said the flower girls should follow royal protocol by wearing tights which Meghan disagreed with.

    In the new updated version of Meghan: A Hollywood Princess, biographer Andrew Morton claims the former Suits actress gave Kate a “peace offering” following their disagreement.

    The expert wrote: “The spat concerning the [flower girls’] outfits now behind them, Meghan had since given Kate and her six closest friends gold bracelets designed by Californian jeweller Lisette Polny as a thank-you for their help and support.”

    Meg & Harry slammed as ‘insufferable’ by Sky News host

    Sky News host Alan Jones snapped live on air today – blasting that the “whole world is fed up” with Harry & Meghan’s “preaching”.

    Incensed by the couple’s high-profile trip to New York last week, the Australian presenter slammed the pair and blasted their “do-gooder activities”.

    Mr Jones argued that as the pair had chosen to quit as senior royals, they should not be arranging to meet people in power.

    “These two are truly insufferable,” he fumed.

    “The latest, a trip to New York for a bunch of do-gooder activities. One was to visit the United Nations to have a meeting with the United Nations deputy Secretary-General. Honestly, on what basis are these two non-working members of the royal family meeting any politician or world leader?”

    Mr Jone also hit out at the couple for sharing messages and lecturing about climate change and the coronavirus pandemic.

    He continued: “I mean, the whole world is fed up with these two and their preaching. I thought they wanted to live a quiet life out of the limelight. I think we wish they did.”

    ‘Royal version of the Kardashians’

    The Sun’s new columnist, Piers Morgan, says the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been a “relentless orgy of money-grabbing duplicity” since moving to the US.

    But while the Kardashians, who have made their millions from life in the public eye, are “honest” about their mission to become billionaires, Meghan and Harry are not – according to Piers.

    He said the former royals “have their noses permanently rammed in the regal trough” and “intend to keep them there until they’ve made themselves repulsively rich and famous”.

    “In this regard, they’re the royal version of the Kardashians,” Piers writes in the Daily Mail.

    He describes them as “people with no discernible talent other than for pimping themselves out to the highest bidders and a craven desire to air their dirty family linen in public for financial gain.”

    Princely plans

    Last year, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex signed a £112m deal with the production company after quitting the Royal Family.

    In the partnership with Netflix, the couple agreed to a multi-year deal to produce nature series, documentaries and children’s programming.

    Such projects were sought, Prince Harry had claimed in their explosive Oprah Winfrey interview in March, as his family had cut him off financially at the start of 2020 after announcing their Megxit plans.

    In April of this year, the couple revealed their first project for the streaming platform – an Invictus Games documentary.

    Prince Harry, who will appear on camera and be an executive producer for the documentary, gushed over the series, saying he couldn’t wait for the series to reveal the “mosaic of resilience”. 

    In July, it was claimed that Meghan had started working on a Netflix series with David Furnish two years before Megxit.

    The Duchess of Sussex and Elton John’s husband began working on the new animated series, that has the working title ‘Pearl’, several years ago according to Page Six.

    Meghan Markle wants to star in superhero movie, expert claims

    The Duchess of Sussex wants to return to the big screen and star in a superhero film, it has been suggested to royal biographer Angela Levin.

    Suggestions were made earlier this week that Meghan, 40, may go back on her decision to retire her acting career – and star in a blockbuster film.

    Sources said in early 2020 that her agent was actively looking for a superhero role for the Duchess – but plans were seemingly halted by the Covid pandemic.

    Speaking about what’s next for the Duchess in the post-pandemic world, Ms Levin told the Sun Online: “I heard that Meghan had gone back on saying that she’s not going back to doing acting.

    “She wants to be the star of a superhero in a film.”

    Royal courtiers ‘kept largely in dark’ on Andrew case updates – reports

    Andrew’s personal finances are unclear but experts have pointed out that he has no regular source of income.

    He leases his home, Royal Lodge on the Queen’s Windsor estate, and is expected to sell a Swiss ski chalet to repay a debt to its previous owner, who claims he and ex-wife Sarah Ferguson owe her £6.7 million.

    The Queen’s contribution to Andrew’s defence reportedly means his UK-based legal team, led by Gary Bloxsome, are reportedly obliged to provide updates to Buckingham Palace about the case.

    However, courtiers have been kept “largely in the dark”, according to The Telegraph.

    Queen plants a tree to mark Platinum Jubilee

    THE green-fingered Queen planted a tree to mark her Platinum Jubilee as she got to work with Prince Charles after her summer break.

    The Monarch was joined by her son and heir at Balmoral for one of the few public engagements she has carried out after the death of her “strength and stay” Prince Philip this year.

    The Queen and her son planted a tree at the Balmoral Cricket Pavilion to mark the start of the official planting season at the 50,000-acre Scottish estate.

    The 95-year-old Monarch beamed in her aptly-chosen dark green ensemble as she met children from nearby Crathie Primary School.

    It marks her first public appearance since beginning her annual summer holiday at Balmoral on July 23.

    Style it out

    MEGHAN Markle was seen making visits to the estate of a beauty marketing firm executive in a hint she may be about to launch her own cosmetic line.

    Meghan, 40, reportedly made visits to Guthy-Renker co-founder Bill Guthy's home in Carpinteria, California, with husband Prince Harry, 37, and her mum Doria several times between February and March.

    Harry and Meghan had also flown on a private jet owned by the cosmetics firm during a tour of New York City, the Daily Mail reported

    There has since been speculation that Meghan could be about to launch her own cosmetics line – following in the footsteps of supermodel Cindy Crawford, Jennifer Lopez and Heidi Klum.

    The Sussexes were seen driving from Mr Guthy's estate with Meghan beside him and her mum Doria Ragland in the backseat on March 1.

    Buckingham Palace left terrified

    THE Royal Family is braced for another devastating attack from Prince Harry — as he personally researches his mother’s life for a new book.

    Experts also fear he may use the memoir to name the “royal racist”.

    Royal insiders believe he will now be under extreme pressure to identify the family member he alleges made racist remarks about the colour of baby son Archie’s skin.

    Harry is understood to have been contacting Princess Diana’s old friends.

    It had been thought he would leave most of the work to a ghostwriter.

    Now, Palace sources are “surprised” at how involved he has become.

    Harry has told how he took wife Meghan and Archie to the US to stop “history repeating itself” — and drew comparisons to Di.

    There are concerns his delving into Diana’s life and divorce will paint Prince Charles and Camilla as the bad guys in his book.

    Royal expert Penny Junor said: “The publishers are going to want a lot for their money, such as naming this so-called racist.

    “He’s researching his mother’s life so he’s going to be talking about his parents’ marriage, the break up, the affairs. That could be incredibly damaging for his father and Camilla. Charles is going to be king and Camilla his queen. The last thing they or the country needs is another upsurge of anger based on what I believe to be false, false accusations.”

    Meghan ‘upset and broken’ by Megxit

    Journalist Omid Scobie – a friend of the couple – said Meghan had been left “upset and broken” by Megxit after “trying everything to make it work.”

    Meghan and Harry have since signed a number of lucrative deals since quitting royal life with mega-bucks names including Netflix, Apple and Spotify.

    Scobie, the preferred reporter of the Sussexes – who co-authored their biography Finding Freedom – confirmed the pair will return to public life after “keeping toxicity away”.

    “They’re a couple who do very well in those moments of human interaction. They need to be on the ground,” Scobie told PEOPLE.

    “They say that the proof is in the pudding, and what we are about to see is that pudding.”

    Palace braced for ‘Royal racist’ revelation

    THE Royal Family is braced for another devastating attack from Prince Harry — as he personally researches his mother’s life for a new book.

    Experts also fear he may use the memoir to name the “royal racist”.

    Harry, 37, has a £15million advance from publishers.

    Royal insiders believe he will now be under extreme pressure to identify the family member he alleges made racist remarks about the colour of baby son Archie’s skin.

    Prince Charles ‘will live in “flat above the shop” when he is king’

    Prince Charles is set to “live in a ‘flat above the shop’” after Buckingham Palace is allegedly thrown open to the public when he is King.

    In a bid to radically overhaul the Royal estate, the monarch will be left in less-than lavish living arrangements as the Palace is opened up to the public, it’s been suggested.

    Prince Charles is also planning to move the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to Windsor Castle, because its position in the Heathrow flight path makes it “too noisy” for him.

    It will be a property move that the Cambridges are said to want, according to a friend of the royals.

    And there are talks that Balmoral could turn into a “museum” dedicated to the Queen as part of the property reshuffle.

    As well as slimming down the monarchy, the “property question” is also on the “to do list,” a source told the Mail on Sunday.

    Sussexes attempted to pull focus from Royals onto themselves

    Harry, 37, was seen with a wire hanging out of his trouser pocket, leaving many suspecting there could have been other motives for his and Meghan’s NY trip.

    Claims they were filming for Netflix continued after pictures emerged showing a cameraman trailing the couple for much of their trip.

    Royal writer Angela Levin told The Sun: “As well as attempting to pull focus from the Royal Family onto themselves, they appeared to be filming the whole thing for a Netflix documentary. 

    “Harry was spotted with a microphone wire going into his back pocket and cameras were catching every moment of their chats with members of the public and the mayor of New York.

    “My question is whether they have told all the people they are talking to that they will be included [in the documentary].”

    Tiara tantrum

    Prince Harry’s rage over Meghan Markle’s wedding tiara sparked their tensions with the palace – but it was the Duchess who was branded difficult, a royal expert has claimed.

    In the bombshell piece, Andrew Morton, the author of Meghan: A Hollywood Princess, claimed “Harry was the ‘prime mover’ in souring relations”.

    In six new chapters of the book which was first published in 2018, Mr Morton claimed the colossal rift between the Sussexes and the Firm began with Harry sticking up for his wife-to-be before they tied the knot.

    In November 2018, The Times reported that Meghan had thrown a “tiara tantrum” shortly before her wedding because the tiara she wanted to wear was not available. 

    But now Morton has relieved that it was actually Prince Harry that had kicked off leading up to their big day.

    He wrote: “Harry was the ‘prime mover’ in souring relations between the Sussexes and the Royal Family, but it was Meghan who ‘took the hit’.”

    The Duke of Sussex reportedly ‘shouted’ at royal dresser Angela Kelly when the tiara Meghan had planned on wearing for the wedding could not be produced for an unscheduled hair appointment.

    He says that Harry “was overwrought” when he learnt that the tiara was not available and told “anyone that would listen” that: “What Meghan wants, Meghan gets.”

    Harry ‘oozed alcohol from every pore’

    Prince Harry “oozed alcohol from every pore” and stank of cigarettes during his “wild-oats sowing phase”, a famous US TV host has claimed.

    Katie Couric has detailed encounters with both the Duke of Sussex and his uncle, Prince Andrew, in her new memoir Going There.

    She met Harry at a polo match in Brazil – but criticised his odour of booze and cigarettes, which seemed to “ooze from every pore”, the Daily Mail reports.

    The prince has admitted turning to drugs to cope with his mum’s death.

    And he said he would regularly drink “a week’s worth of alcohol in one day”.

    The 37-year-old opened up about his struggles with his mental well-being and the trauma that haunts him in recent doc The Me You Can’t See.

    “I was willing to drink, I was willing to take drugs, I was willing to try and do the things that made me feel less like I was feeling,” he said.

    Check her out

    KATE Middleton went straight to the top of the class today as she carried out an educational visit to University College London.

    The Duchess of Cambridge put her best foot forward after stepping out in a grey houndstooth dress and towering Hugo Boss stilettoes.

    She is meeting with early years researchers who are conducting a study entitled The Children of the 2020s.

    The research will track the holistic development of children from the age of nine months to five years.

    The royal princesses’ names explained

    Sienna’s first name is derived from the Tuscan city of Siena, and it is a clear reference to her father’s Italian roots. The baby’s middle name pays honour to the Queen.

    This is Queen Elizabeth’s 12th great-grandchild and arrives just over three months after Lilibet Diana, Harry and Meghan’s second child who they also named in honour of the Queen.

    Back in June, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their daughter, Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor.

    She was named after the Queen’s family nickname and also Harry’s mother Princess Diana, who died in a car crash in 1997.

    Prince William and Kate Middleton’s six-year-old daughter Charlotte’s name also pays tribute to the monarch.

    Her full name, including her title, is Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana of Cambridge.

    While Charlotte’s first name is a nod to her grandfather, Prince Charles, her middle names, Elizabeth and Diana, pay homage to the same women who are Lilibet’s namesakes.

    Harry ‘hypocritical’ for lecturing on climate change

    Former government minister Norman Baker, 64, told Newsweek: “It’s completely hypocritical for Prince Harry or other members of the royal family to lecture people about climate change when they’re emitting more carbon than almost everyone else on the planet.

    “People using private jets are in the top one percent of carbon emitters in the world.

    “Prince Harry needs to stop using private jets or if he wants to use private jets he needs to stop lecturing people on climate change. It is not particularly challenging to get a flight from New York to California – people do it all the time.”

    The couple have faced repeated criticism for insisting on using  private flights, despite preaching about the environment.

    Baker said Harry and Meghan took 18 private jet trips in the 12 months from January 2019 to January 2020.
