Royal Family news – Queen 'frustrated by Charles' while Prince Harry blames vaccine hesitancy on 'people peddling lies'

PIERS Morgan has slammed "disgraceful" Meghan Markle and Prince Harry for "trashing" the Queen after she lost her beloved Philip.

It comes amid the presenter's ongoing feud with the Sussexes – following yesterday's Ofcom win over a debate about Meghan's mental health.

Piers tweeted today: "Amid all the debate about Meghan Markle’s mental health, has anyone given a thought for what the Queen’s had to endure this year as the Sussexes have continually trashed her family & the Monarchy while she lost and mourned her beloved husband of 73 years?

"Just disgraceful."

And Harry and Meghan still owe £78,500 to charity as their foundation finally closes – severing their final tie to the UK.

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

    WHAT DEALS HAVE HARRY AND MEGHAN GOT TO PRODUCE PROGRAMMES?

    The Sussexes have signed a multi-year deal to produce nature series, documentaries and children’s programming for Netflix, but it seems they could be stepping in front of the cameras some time soon.

    Their first project was a documentary focusing on Prince Harry’s treasured Invictus Games.

    The Duke took on the role as executive producer while Archewell Productions worked with director Orlando von Einsiedel and producer Joanna Natasegara on the series, which followed both the athletes and organisers as they prepare for the Games.

    He previously claimed that he had to sign the deal with Netflix and a £30m contract with Spotify because he he’d been effectively “cut off” by the Royal Family when he and Meghan stepped away.

    OMID SCOBIE TAKES A SWIPE AT THE QUEEN AS HE CLAIMS ‘NO SENIOR ROYAL’ STEPPED IN TO SOLVE PRINCE WILLIAM & HARRY’S RIFT

    The Finding Freedom author believes the brotherly row could have been squashed if a Royal family member had stepped in – but said no one has intervened in the sibling squabble.

    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.”

    Scobie’s apparent jibe towards Her Majesty comes after the release of a new epilogue for the biography based on the Sussexes, on the 24th anniversary of Princess Diana’s death.

    PRINCE ANDREW STILL A PERSON OF INTEREST IN US EPSTEIN PROBE

    Andrew, 61, has resisted approaches to cooperate with a criminal investigation into dead billionaire paedophile Jeffrey Epstein and his alleged co-conspirators.

    US prosecutors — who are unravelling Epstein’s sprawling underage sex trafficking operation — accused Andrew of “zero cooperation” last year.

    News agency Reuters reported earlier this month that Andrew was a “person of interest” in the Epstein probe — led by the US Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York. He is being considered “at least” a witness.

    As part of their investigation, Epstein’s alleged madam, Brit socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, 59, has been charged with procuring girls for her former lover.

    The Duke also faces a civil lawsuit from sex slave Virginia Giuffre in the US, over allegations he sexually assaulted her. He has vehemently denied the claims in the past.

    SUSANNA REID REVEALS SHE FEELS ‘AWKWARD’ STUCK BETWEEN PIERS MORGAN AND ITV BOSSES AFTER OFCOM STAND-OFF

    Speaking for the first time since the landmark Ofcom win, Susanna said that she felt “awkward” being stuck in the middle during the complaint.

    The presenter also confirmed that Piers wouldn’t be on the show this morning – or be returning to his job on Good Morning Britain.

    She revealed this morning on GMB: “What struck me about the Ofcom ruling, on the one hand, I’ve got my friend Piers Morgan, and on the other, I’ve got my bosses at ITV.

    “So it’s obviously a slightly awkward moment right now.”

    Susanna said Piers will NOT be returning to the show this morning.

    And when she was asked if she was “devastated,” the presenter simply said: “it was quite a moment, wasn’t it.”

    In an interview with Fox News, Mr Bullen listed some of the similarities between Harry and Edward.

    Book A King’s Story: Memoirs of the Duke of Windsor was published in 1951, and included detail about the royal split and his relationship with Wallis.

    Harry is currently writing his own memoirs after signing a £29million four-book mega-deal.

    MEGHAN MARKLE WILL BE ‘ABSOLUTELY LIVID’ AS PIERS MORGAN WINS OFCOM RULING OVER ‘LIAR’ BLAST

    Royal biographer Angela Levin says the Duchess of Sussex could bring her lawyers in after Ofcom ruled the former Good Morning Britain host was entitled to give his opinions about her during a heated debate.

    Following the sensational win for free speech, Piers said Meghan wrote to his ITV boss Dame Carolyn McCall demanding “his head on a plate,” in a “nauseating” bid to get him fired.

    And it’s believed the Duchess will be as angry now that her pleas failed and Piers won the complaint.

    On how Meghan will feel about the ruling, Royal author Angela Levin told The Sun Online: “I think she will be absolutely livid and she’ll ask her lawyers to see what they can do about it.

    “She can’t cope with someone saying she didn’t tell the truth. Because she is all about compassion and understanding and caring for people.”

    LADY LOUISE WINDSOR FACES BIG ROYAL DECISION AS SHE APPROACHES 18TH BIRTHDAY

    Lady Louise is the daughter of Prince Edward and Sophie. In two months she will turn 18, and when she reaches the milestone she will decide if she wants to use the HRH title.

    The Countess of Wessex told the Sunday Times in 2020 that: “we try to bring them up with the understanding they are very likely to have to work for a living.

    “Hence we made the decision not to use HRH titles.

    “They have them and can decide to use them from 18, but I think it’s highly unlikely.”

    Louise’s brother, Viscount Severn will also face the same decision when he celebrates his 18th birthday. He is only 13 so has some time to make up his mind.

    BIG BUCKS: MEGHAN MARKLE & PRINCE HARRY STILL OWE £78,500 TO CHARITY AS THEIR FOUNDATION FINALLY CLOSES

    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”.

    THE BIZARRE ROYAL FAMILY TRADITION GIVEN THE BOOT BY PRINCE PHILLIP

    According to Royal expert Richard Jobson, Prince Phillip “cancelled” a “ridiculous” royal family tradition after he found out where it came from.

    The no-nonsense Duke apparently grew increasingly irritated by what he deemed to be “outdated” rules and traditions and therefore banned a tradition that came from Queen Victoria herself.

    She would always order a bottle of whiskey of she had a cold. It became the case that a bottle would always appear at the monarch’s bedside.

    Mr Jobson said: “[Philip] was determined to modernise things inside the Palace.

    “He was the person that brought the television cameras into the coronation ceremony. He was the person that really wanted to conduct the first TV interviews, and did so.

    “He was a great believer in science and technology. So he was someone who really did want to change the way things were done.”

    Mr Jobson added: “He found some of the things completely ridiculous and outdated.

    “The Queen had to sort of temper that, that enthusiasm to change things.”

    Following Prince Philip’s funeral, the new tell-all Harry and Meghan biography Finding Freedom reveals Harry and The Queen had a “very special” reunion.
