Meghan Markle news latest – Prince Harry & Duchess' expensive taste & lifestyle 'out of touch' with 'target audience'

A NEW film about Princess Diana premiered last night and caused instant outrage among royal experts who said it strips her of dignity.

The movie, Spencer, portrays Diana as an emotionally unstable, broken woman who self-harms and breaks down hysterically in front of young son Prince William.

Lady Di is shown at the height of a mental health crisis while battling bulimia — reduced to tears as she forces herself to vomit and descends into hallucinations about her own death – while a degrading shower scene ends with the princess talking about a solo sex act.

Ingrid Seward, editor in chief of Majesty Magazine, said: “It is really cruel to portray her like this. It is totally unnecessary.

“William and Harry will be very angry and hurt about this. They will find it horrible that their mother is being portrayed in such a huge movie this way.”

    New Diana film causes instant outrage

    A controversial new film Princess Diana premiered last night and caused instant outrage among royal experts who said it strips her of dignity.

    The movie, Spencer, portrays Diana as an emotionally unstable, broken woman who self-harms and breaks down hysterically in front of young son Prince William.

    Graphic scenes range from the fragile princess fantasising about throwing herself down the stairs to choking on a pearl necklace gifted to her by husband Charles.

    On one’s marks

    THE QUEEN proudly kicked off the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games with Prince Edward at her side yesterday

    The Queen’s Baton Relay began from the forecourt of Buckingham Palace before embarking on its 90,000 mile international journey to all 72 nations and territories taking part.

    Her Majesty placed her message inside the “smart” baton, which was automatically sealed, ahead of its 294-day journey.

    She then handed it to Paralympic gold medallist Kadeena Cox, who will take it on its first leg of its voyage.

    The Monarch, looking extremely dashing in an autumnal orange coat and matching hat, beamed alongside her youngest son, the Earl of Wessex, at Buckingham Palace.

    Bizarre test palace cleaners have to pass

    IT’LL come as no surprise that no one just walks straight into a job at any of the royal residences.

    Even if you’re not reporting directly to a member of the family, candidates go through rounds of rigorous interviews.

    And if that didn’t sound stressful enough, spare a thought for the poor prospective cleaners who have been subjected to the “dead fly test”.

    Appearing on the Channel 5 documentary Sandringham: Royals at Christmas, head of recruitment Tracey Waterman revealed how she weeds out the weaker housekeeping candidates.

    She explained: “One of the tests I like to do, to see if a candidate has potential eye for detail, is to place a dead fly, either in the fireplace or on the carpet.

    “Once the dead fly is placed, I then bring the candidate into the room.

    Will George ever be King?

    The Royal Family “may never see Prince George become King”.

    Royal commentator Daniela Elser has pinpointed how the turmoil facing the Firm didn’t make a “pretty picture” for its future.

    Speaking about the change that will happen in the coming years as the Queen’s reign ends, she said: “When that mournful day comes, we might not be only saying goodbye to a truly iconic figure but farewelling the last and final Queen of the UK.

    “It will be up to her son, grandson and great-grandson what comes next; they will be fighting for nothing short of survival.”

    Third wheeling

    Diana is third wheel in Harry and Meghan’s marriage, claims a royal biographer.

    Andrew Morton, author of the bombshell biography Diana: In Her Own Words, has said that for both Harry and Meghan, “all roads lead back to Diana” and “every camera click and whirr” reminds them of their “terrible fate”.

    He continued to say that: “As the Sussexes embarked on their own journey together through Royal life, not a day went by without a reference, a memory or a decision that related in some way to Harry’s late mother. Diana was the third wheel in their marriage.”

    Raking it in

    Harry was estimated to be worth around £29.5m in 2019, before he and Meghan made the move to the States with their son, Archie, now two.

    After allegedly running up a colossal taxpayer bill in the UK, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex – who are also parents to four-month-old Lilibet – have been racking up their earnings.

    They landed a £30million deal with Spotify for their own podcast – branded a “woke word salad” by listeners.

    The couple also bagged a £112million Netflix deal – which led to Meghan being labelled the “new Kim Kardashian” – and have appeared at a string of lucrative speaking events, averaging at £756k a speech. 

    If that wasn’t enough, Meghan enlisted her close pal Oprah Winfrey to help flog a coffee investment via an Instagram post, reportedly worth millions.

    Harry has also had a £15million advance from publishers for a memoir, which experts fear he may use to name the “royal racist” – although he’s said to be donating profits to charity.

    Andrew faces 'disaster' (continued…)

    Writer Ms Levin, who has penned an authorised biography of Prince Harry, says Andrew had just three options to explore ahead of the civil case.

    Speaking on talkRADIO this morning, Ms Levin said: "One was to ignore it, pretend it didn't happen, he didn't know anything about it.

    "We've seen that hasn't worked – it hasn't gone away. He thought it would all disappear into the night. It hasn't.

    "The second one was to go to America and answer all the questions and nit-pick apart the accusations, which is quite dangerous.

    "Remember how he was on Newsnight and then think of him on the stand, giving evidence.

    "I think it would be a disaster for him.

    "The third one is to try to worm out the fact that his accuser doesn't have a case."

    Andrew faces ‘disaster’ if he takes stand in Virginia Roberts case

    PRINCE Andrew faces "disaster" if he takes the stand during the bombshell sex case against him, a royal biographer has claimed.

    The Duke of York's "car crash" Newsnight interview – in which he bizarrely claimed he doesn't sweat – should warn him off giving evidence, Angela Levin says.

    Andrew faces a lawsuit in the US amid allegations he forced Virginia Roberts Giufrre to sleep with him when she was 17.

    Ms Robert was a former sex slave of late paedophile financier Jeffrey Epstein.

    The duke vehemently denies the allegations.

      Harry and Meghan to miss COP26

      “ECO-WARRIORS” Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will miss this year’s COP26 climate change conference in November.

      The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will skip the highly anticipated Glasgow climate event, while the Queen, Prince Charles, Camilla, William and Kate are all set to attend.

      The Royal announcement comes weeks after Harry and Meghan attended the star-studded Global ­Citizen Live concert in New York — dubbed “Wokestock” — which demanded tough new eco laws to halve US emissions by 2030.

      It also pressed the “wealthiest nations” to deliver on a £70billion-a-year pledge to help developing countries go green.

      Another name

      According to royal biographer Robert Lacey, Prince Charles and Princess Diana faced this exact dilemma when their son Prince William was born in June 1982.

      Writing for PEOPLE magazine, the author claims Charles preferred the name Arthur.

      However, Diana allegedly wasn’t convinced.

      The expert wrote: “Diana, Princess of Wales proposed a more robust name — William, as in ‘William the Conqueror,’ victor of the famed Battle of Hastings in 1066.”

      As a result, the couple found a compromise.

      Instead, they used Arthur as one of William’s middle names – along with Philip and Louis.

      COP26 has Royal approval

      The Queen, Prince Charles, Camilla, William and Kate are all set to attend this year’s COP26 climate change conference in November.

      Up to 25,000 people are expected from around the world for the event, with up to 200 countries attending to try and set major climate change goals to stop global warming.

      However ‘eco-warriors’ the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are set to skip the event as the pair have largely stayed away from the UK since Megxit.

      The Royal announcement comes weeks after Harry and Meghan attended the star-studded Global ­Citizen Live concert in New York — dubbed “Wokestock” — which demanded tough new eco laws to halve US emissions by 2030.

      It also pressed the “wealthiest nations” to deliver on a £70billion-a-year pledge to help developing countries go green.

      Andrew's lawsuit affecting Royals ‘really badly’

      Angela Levin said the suit is affecting the Royal Family “very badly” – and no matter what the outcome, the damage to Andrew’s reputation will be “permanent”.

      “Here’s the prince, the second son of Her Majesty, and he’s just going on and on and pretending in his rather pompous way he’s above all this nonsense,” she said.

      Despite a series of PR catastrophes in recent years, Andrew was reportedly so confident the case would collapse that he was plotting a return to the royal frontline.

      But he’s now understood to be “worried”.

      One source said: “There has been a dramatic shift in mood and the reality that this could not only go on for many months, if not years, as well as costing potentially millions of pounds is very real.”

      More from new Diana film ‘Spencer’

      In another scene appearing to echo Prince Harry’s real life comments on Oprah about his brother and father being trapped in the system, Harry asks Will if he even wants to be king. The heir swerves the question but the undertones are all too clear for the viewer.

      A third intense scene which will no doubt enrage the protective third in line to the throne, Wills is seen close to tears as he begs his mother to join him for dinner after she locks herself in the bathroom following a graphic self harm scene with wire cutters.

      As he bangs on the door, William is seen as collateral damage and the only family member willing to pick up the pieces of his parents’ shattered marriage.

      “Mummy, Mummy… Mummy, you said to tell you if you are being really silly. You are being really silly,” the emotional prince begs.

      “Please mummy, we have to sit down before Granny. Mummy just switch off your mind. Don’t think about it until after dinner for everyone’s sake.

      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.

      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.”

      Josh Widdecombe’s link to Henry VIII

      Comic Josh Widdicombe is the latest celeb to learn he’s related to royalty.

      He nearly lost his head when he was told the six times married monarch Henry VIII is his 23 times great-grandfather in TV’s Who Do You Think You Are?.

      The Last Leg funnyman also discovered he is descended from Edward I in a new episode of the BBC show, in which celebrities trace their family trees with the help of genealogy experts.

      His link to Henry VIII is through a distant great nan, said to be the king’s illegitimate daughter.

      Josh said: “To say it’s exceeded my expectations is the understatement of a lifetime. I was just expecting a couple of farmers. It’s proper blue blood, isn’t it?”

        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.”
