Meghan Markle latest news: ‘Failure’ for Prince Harry & Meg would be ‘the ultimate humiliation’ as support hits new low

THE BBC look set to finish filming a special programme honouring the late Prince Phillip.

Plans for the hour-long show include interviews with many members of the royal family and it is understood that both Prince Harry and Prince Andrew will appear.

Prince Harry had previously dated the actress for two years, however the pair went their separate ways two years prior to the Prince meeting his future wife.

Author and publisher Andrew Lownie claims that the sussexes leaving the Royal Family was a move pushed by Meghan.

Mr Lownie spoke to Express.co.uk revealing that he thought Harry would have had an easier time had he married his ex-girlfriend Cressida.

He said: “Just think of Harry, if Harry had married Cressida Bonas, [would] we have the problems that we have now? No.”

  • MEGHAN MARKLE AND PRINCE HARRY’S KIDS ‘WILL HAVE NEW PLAYMATE’ AS DUKE’S CHILDHOOD PAL IS EXPECTING ANOTHER BABY

    MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry’s children will soon have a new playmate, it has been reported.

    The Duke’s childhood pal Guy Pelly is expecting baby “number three” with his wife, Holiday Inn heiress Elizabeth Wilson, and they “couldn’t be more excited”.

    The Sussexes little ones, Archie, two, and three-month-old Lilibet often enjoy playdates with the Pelly’s two daughters and another tot will soon join the fold, Wilson revealed.

    It is like history repeating itself – as 39-year-old Pelly, grew up alongside both Harry and William, and is the son of Lady Carolyn Herbert – a close pal of the Prince’s late mother, Princess Diana.

    Pelly formerly ran a string of London nightclubs including Royal-favourite Mahiki in Kensington as well as Public, Whisky Mist and Tonteria.

  • PRINCE HARRY AND MEGHAN MARKLE ACCUSED OF ‘BREATHTAKING ENTITLEMENT’ OVER LILIBET’S CHRISTENING BY ROYAL EXPERT

    Rumours suggest the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have requested a formal christening for baby Lilibet at Windsor Castle, Robert Jobson reports.

    Lilibet Diana, who shares both the Queen’s pet name and Harry’s mother Diana’s name, was born in California in June.

    It is not yet know where she will be christened, although royal commentator Robert Jobson suggests it would be “breathtaking” for Meghan and Harry to expect any kind of royal affair.

    Writing in The Mirror, he said: “Now there is talk – as she is already older than her brother Archie was when he was christened – that they are pushing for a ceremony in the private chapel at Windsor Castle.

    “To some, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s sense of entitlement might seem breathtaking.

    “They seem to be blissfully unaware of the mayhem their behaviour has caused the Queen, the monarchy and the Royal Family.”

  • ‘HEALING’ THE RIFT (CONTINUED…)

    Mr Helliker said: “The link between Harry and Philip is even greater than his other grandchildren – including William.

    “Because Philip was the last surviving veteran, he and Harry always had that in common. I think he will have looked on Harry as a bit of a rebel.”

    However, he said Philip would have been “disappointed” that Harry chose to step away from royal duties.

    “Taking part in it and viewing it back – wherever they are in the world, they will think how incredible to have this man a grandfather,” he said.

    “Maybe it will just bring Harry up to a jolt.

    “He might think, ‘Is this worth giving up, is this worth not supporting? Have I let everyone down?’”

    And Philip may have liked the idea that the documentary would reunite his grandsons, Mr Helliker said.

  • PRINCE HARRY & WILLIAM COULD START ‘HEALING’ TALKS TO MEND RIFT AFTER UNITING FOR PRINCE PHILIP DOCUMENTARY, SAYS EXPERT

    The brothers will share their memories of their grandfather as part of a new documentary on the Duke of Edinburgh’s life.

    Royal author Adam Helliker said the BBC film could mark a turning point for the princes – and may help to end their feud.

    The last time the princes met face-to-face was at the unveiling of a statue of their late mother, Princess Diana.

    And while they appeared to be on good form for the event this summer, Harry left just 20 minutes after the statue was revealed before returning to the US.

    Mr Helliker told the Sun Online that the documentary may do what the recent meeting couldn’t.

    “I think it could be a rallying moment, a healing moment when they all remember someone who was such a pivotal member of the Royal Family,” he said.

    The film may provide an “excuse” for Harry or William to pick up the phone, he said.

  • MEGHAN MARKLE AND PRINCE HARRY WILL MAKE A MOVIE AS THEY ‘AIM HIGH’ IN LA, PAL OMID SCOBIE HINTS

    Scobie revealed on the Royally Obsessed podcast: “I had a very interesting conversation with some executives at Netflix recently. I was trying my best to get a little bit on the Sussexes.

    “All that was said to me was ‘oh man, you don’t even know the half of what they’re working on. They are aiming so high’.

    “So I think the one thing that may surprise us at one point – and I don’t know when this will be – and this is just my own guess really… I think this is when we’re going to hear some sort of movie announcement.”

  • GRACE JONES JOKES SHE ‘COULDN’T HANDLE PRINCE HARRY’ AS SHE JETS INTO UK FOR WELLCHILD EVENT

    The I Need a Man singer, 73, is set to perform at the exclusive five star Landmark Hotel in central London on Sept 17th in an all star bash.

    As well as being supported by best friends Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell, the dinner will also play host to some of the biggest names in showbiz.

    Grace Jones’ team told The Sun: “Grace loves a full English, she joked couldn’t managed a whole Harry though and is ecstatic to be performing at next week’s event.”

    The event is in conjunction with London Fashion Week where Grace will return to the catwalk as part of the This is ICON event.

  • MEGHAN URGED TO STICK TO ‘HOLLYWOOD GOSSIP’ AS ‘SERIOUS PEOPLE’ WILL NOT LISTEN TO DUCHESS

    A former US/UK relations adviser and Senior Fellow of the Bow Group think tank Lee Cohen has suggested Meghan Markle should steer clear from important world issues.

    He said that “serious people” care little for what she has to say, urging her to stick to “Hollywood gossip”.

    Mr Cohen went on to say: “I have not seen any reaction from military personnel, why would serious people even tune in to what Ms Markle has to say on this or any issue except Hollywood gossip?

    “Interestingly, the Sussexes were careful to avoid mention of embattled Biden, whom they have always lined up behind.

    “I recall that the Biden White House was quick to praise the Sussexes for their ‘courage’ opening up about their mental health issues through the Oprah interview.

    “Now that Biden has earned the world’s scorn for his Afghanistan catastrophe, the Sussexes’ cosiness with the failed leader is less desirable.”

  • EXPLAINED: WHAT WILL HARRY’S BOOK BE LIKE AND WHEN IS IT BEING RELEASED?

    A blurb from the publisher Penguin Random House reads: “In an intimate and heartfelt memoir from one of the most fascinating and influential global figures of our time, Prince Harry will share, for the very first time, the definitive account of the experiences, adventures, losses, and life lessons that have helped shape him.”

    Promising “an honest and captivating personal portrait” the book will detail Harry’s life as a member of the Royal Family, his relationship with wife Meghan Markle, Megxit and raising his children.

    It is set to be released next year – as the Queen celebrates her Platinum Jubilee.

  • THE CROWN PRODUCERS REVEAL THE TWO UNKNOWN CHILD STARS TO PLAY PRINCE WILLIAM AND PRINCE HARRY IN NEW SERIES

    Seven-year-old Teddy Rawley will play the young royal, while Timothee Sambor, 11, will appear as his older brother Prince William.

    A source said: “Netflix bosses wanted to make sure they had the right actors for the role given the young royals are so well known and were in the public eye so much at that age.

    “They didn’t rush it and found Teddy and Timothee who they hope will be warmly received. They’re about to become household names in their own right.”

    We told back in June how bosses on the Netflix series had considered dying a child’s hair so they could find someone appropriate for the role of runaway royal Harry.

    Ginger-haired people are in decline, as a recessive gene has to be passed on by both parents. Harry will be aged six to 13 in the next series.

    Harry was previously portrayed by six-year-old Arran Tinker, who had strawberry blonde hair but only appeared briefly.

    Elizabeth Debicki, 31, takes over from Emma Corrin, 25, to play Diana and was seen this week alongside the young actors.

    The scenes are part of the third Lifetime TV movie; Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace, and sees British actor Jordan Dean and American actress Sydney Morton take over the roles of Harry and Meghan.

    Harry is seen confronting his older brother and heir to the throne and accusing him of not speaking out on racism.

    The brothers are seen arguing in the gardens of Kensington Palace, with William telling his younger sibling: “What causes problems isn’t colour, it’s culture. Meghan an American. She acts more like a celebrity than a Royal.”

    But Harry furiously replies: “You need to bloody well make a statement with me decrying racism.  

    “As future King, you need to push on this horrific bullying.”

  • ROYAL FAMILY TO REVEAL ‘POIGNANT’ MEMORIES OF PRINCE PHILIP IN LANDMARK DOCUMENTARY TO MARK DUKE’S 73 YEARS OF SERVICE

    A “unique portrait” of Prince Philip and his life will air on September 22 on BBC One – as the Royal Family pays tribute to the beloved Duke who passed away earlier this year.

    All of the Queen and Prince Philip’s children, adult grandchildren, and other members of the Royal Family have agreed to take part in the heartfelt BBC film.

    It is not known if Meghan Markle will join her husband Prince Harry in the television tribute.

    Her Majesty has granted special access to her private cine-film collection as part of the documentary about her late husband.

  • MEGHAN AND HARRY’S AMBITIONS HAVE “BACKFIRED” AND THEY ARE MORE TRAPPED THAN EVERY, ROYAL AUTHOR SAYS

    Duncan Larcombe, the author of Prince Harry: The Inside Story, says the couple moved to LA to try to forge their own path but their mounting unpopularity means it may have backfired.

    He said:“If freedom is being able to say what you want, when you want, to whoever you choose to speak to, then Harry has found a degree of freedom. But if freedom is having good will behind you to live in peace, being able to live life as you want it or being at peace with the people you’ve rowed with, then freedom has not been achieved.

    “It’s backfired. Harry and Meghan seem to have totally isolated themselves – they’re more trapped than ever in this new life they’ve created.”

  • OMID SCOBIE SAID ROYAL ‘FAMILY FRACTURES’ ARE FAR FROM FIXED

    In an interview on This Morning – which coincided with the news that Piers Morgan was cleared by Ofcom over comments he made about Meghan Markle – Scobie said the “family fractures” were far from fixed.

    “I wish there was a.. you know, we have all experienced family squabbles and so on, but there is always a senior member of the family who clips you round the ear and pulls you all together and says ‘talk!’.

    “And I haven’t heard that from any source connected to the family that there has been someone who has played that role.

    “I’m sure if Diana was here today, that’s exactly what she would do. But I’ve certainly not heard that from any of the others.”

  • MEGHAN MARKLE & PRINCE HARRY STILL OWE £78,500 TO CHARITY

    The couple’s MWX Foundation, formerly Sussex Royal, is in liquidation but has not paid off the unnamed non-profit, papers released today revealed.

    The report said a claim of £213,000 had been received from a creditor relating to a grant due to a “not-for-profit enterprise”.

    A total of £134,500 has been paid off, according to the most recent figures, leaving £78,500 left to hand over.

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex began winding up MWX a year ago, declaring all of its debts would be paid in full within 12 months.

    But more than 12 months later and the outstanding amount on the Companies House document remains.

    It reads: “The charity has sufficient funds to settle the claim in full and a final dividend is to be made shortly to pay the remaining balance.”

  • HARRY AND MEGHAN’S POPULARITY WITH BRITS PLUNGES TO RECORD LOW, DAMNING POLL REVEALS

    According to a YouGov survey, only 26 per cent of Brits “favour” Meghan while 65 per cent dislike her, bringing her net approval rating to -39 per cent.

    For Harry, just 34 per cent say they like him compared to 59 per cent who don’t, taking the prince’s net favourability rating to -25 per cent.

    Harry’s rating has tumbled 25 points since April, while Meghan’s fell nine points during the same span of time.

    Pensioners were the harshest, with just 13 to 18 per cent of over 65s saying they approved of the couple.

    But Harry and Meghan can rejoice in one fact: that Prince Andrew has by far the lowest approval rating of any royal in the survey.

    He is now set to remain in the safety of the Queen’s private estate when his sex abuse case is heard on Monday.

    An insider said: “Andrew was going stir-crazy inside Royal Lodge for the past few weeks. He wasn’t going horse riding and couldn’t step outside because of attempts to serve him with the legal papers.

    “He knows he is far safer up at Balmoral on the Queen’s estate.

    “Andrew is always described as the Queen’s favourite son but she is meant to be on holiday at Balmoral.

    “With Andrew and everything that is happening with Charles and the investigation into cash for honours she must be wondering when she will get any peace and quiet.”

  • KNEE FOR HER MAJESTY

    The Queen and the Royal Family are supporters of the Black Lives Matter movement, one of Her Majesty’s representatives has said.

    Sir Ken Olisa, the first black Lord-Lieutenant for London, said he discussed the topic of racism with members of the royal household in the wake of George Floyd’s murder in the US last year.

    Mr Floyd’s death sparked an eruption of anti-racism protests around the world, with millions showing their support for Black Lives Matter (BLM).

    When asked by Channel 4’s Black To Front whether the Royal Family support BLM, Sir Ken said: “The answer is easily yes”.

    He said: “I have discussed with the royal household this whole issue of race particularly in the last 12 months since the George Floyd incident.

    “It’s a hot conversation topic. The question is what more can we do to bind society to remove these barriers.

    “They [the royals] care passionately about making this one nation bound by the same values.”

    Sir Trevor McDonald introduced the series of clips on stage, which featured some of the biggest moments of the past 12 months.
