Royal Family news – Woke Prince Harry 'a total HYPOCRITE for silence on TV show The Prince's sick portrayal of royals'

MEGHAN Markle believed the Palace were trying to discredit her with bullying claims, says source.

Buckingham Palace launched a probe into claims Meghan, 40, made staff cry and "humiliated" personal assistants during her time as a working royal – which she has denied.

An independent law firm is currently undertaking the investigation as part of the review of the Sovereign Grant but it is not due to be published until 2022.

At the time the allegations first emerged she released a statement saying she was "saddened by the attack on her character" and had herself been the victim of bullying.

But now a new chapter in "Finding Freedom", the book about her and Harry's "escape" from The Firm, authors Carolyn Durrant and Omid Scoobiespoke to a close friend of the couple who revealed Meghan was "worried", The Independent reports.

The pal said: “Though the duchess was used to defamatory reports, this front-page story was more worrying.

“It felt like certain individuals at the Palace were doing their very best to undermine and discredit anything they worried the couple may or may not say during  the interview.”

    DIANA'S FORMER BUTLER SAYS HARRY SHOULD 'DEFEND HIS FAMILY' OVER CONTROVERSIAL CARTOON SERIES

    The Prince, which has been shown on HBO, is a satirical cartoon which mocks the royal family.

    The cartoon has faced heavy criticism with many suggesting it can be harmful to the young prince.

    Speaking with Closer magazine the former butler said he wants to see the Sussexes speak out about the 'damaging' cartoon.

    He said: "It seems ironic to me that while Meghan and Harry are happy to lend their voices to supporting mental health charities, they can’t seem to speak up and defend their family.

    "I’ve seen The Prince and it’s extremely damaging to target a young boy and mock him in the way the cartoonists have done."

    MEGHAN MARKLE & PRINCE HARRY DONATE TO AFGHAN WOMEN’S AID CHARITY

    MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry have donated to an Afghan charity after saying they’d been left “speechless” by the unfolding disaster.

    It’s not known how much the couple handed over – although the organisation has since posted on Instagram to thank the Sussexes.

    The pair forked out after issuing a widely-mocked statement on the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan.

    Meghan and Harry released a lengthy statement on the crisis – despite claiming they were lost for words.

    And they urged fans to donate cash to charity, before going on to name only US-based organisations.

    MEGHAN MARKLE & PRINCE HARRY’S DECISION TO NAME DAUGHTER LILIBET IS PROOF THEY’RE ‘CLOSE TO QUEEN’, SAYS PAL OMID SCOBIE

    PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle’s decision to name their child Lilibet shows how “close” they are to the Queen, their pal Omid Scobie believes.

    The Finding Freedom biographer insists the couple’s use of Her Majesty’s childhood nickname gives an “insight” into their relationship with the monarch.

    It comes after a row erupted over the use of Lilibet’s name, with Harry, 36, insisting he spoke to the Queen about using it beforehand. But a palace source told the BBC the Queen was “never asked” about its use.

    And an insider told the Mail on Sunday the conversation between Harry and the Queen was “a telling, not an asking”.

    Scobie told Good Morning America: “When it comes to that relationship with the Queen, it is as strong as ever. They have nothing but love for her. Of course, we saw them name their daughter after the Queen’s very nickname.

    “So that really gives us an insight into that close relationship.”

    PRINCE GEORGE BEGS MEGHAN MARKLE TO ‘STOP NOW’ IN CUTTING HBO CARTOON THE PRINCE

    A new teaser clip for HBO cartoon The Prince has earthed. This time, the video sees Prince George tell Meghan to “stop now”.

    In the video, Harry says: “Hello all, sorry we’re late. Our flight was delayed – you know, JetBlue.”

    Catty George snaps back: “We don’t know. Gross.”

    Meghan tells the family: “It was Mint though,” before turning to Harry and saying: “Tell them we were in Mint.”

    Kate Middleton replies back instead, sarcastically saying: “They gave you a mint. How lovely for you. I have some gum in my purse if you’d like?”

    But Meghan tells her: “No, we were in mind. It’s like their business class. It’s really nice. They give you these cookies and…”

    Quickly George then cuts in and says: “Meghan, I’m begging you to stop now.”

    MEGHAN MARKLE & PRINCE HARRY’S RELATIONS WITH THE QUEEN ‘AS STRONG AS EVER’, OMID SCOBIE SAYS

    Their preferred reporter spoke about the couple’s strong connection with Her Majesty while being interviewed by Good Morning America.

    The Sussexes’ biography co-writer was asked: “What’s the latest on that relationship with the Queen?”

    Scobie replied from London: “I’m so glad you asked that because of course we did release some details from the book, this week.

    “I spoke to sources close to the couple, who spoke about their disappointment in the institution of the monarchy, and the sort of lack of accountability taken after some of the revelations that they made in the Oprah Winfrey interview.

    “Particularly when they came to the racism claims.

    “But when it comes to that relationship with the Queen, it is as strong as ever – they have nothing but love for her.”

    HARRY’S ‘LIFELONG PASSION FOR SPORTS’

    Sport has been a lifelong passion of Prince Harry’s, with the royal setting up the Invictus Games in 2014.

    The event for wounded service personnel sees thousands of fans flock in from over 20 countries.

    In an inspiring speech about Invictus athletes in 2019, Harry said: “I think, in the last five years, these guys have completely changed how we view disability, how we view mental health. This is all them.

    “We merely created a platform in order for them to shine and it’s genuinely been one of the greatest honours of my life to get to know all you guys and to see you through this process.

    “We’ve had some laughs, we’ve had some tears, and I can’t ever thank you enough for the impact that you have had across the world, to be able to create better understanding for those people who put the uniform on.”

    PRINCE HARRY ‘WANTS TO BE MORE IMPORTANT THAN WILLIAM’ AND ‘CAN’T HELP SHOWING OFF’

    Angela Levin blasted the Duke of Sussex in a new interview today after we exclusively revealed the eco-warrior flew home from a polo event on a millionaire pal’s private jet.

    And she said the royal often showboats for the cameras.

    Broadcaster Julia Hartley-Brewer said Angela used to speak about Harry in "glowing terms".

    The writer replied: "When he was at Eton, he hated being there, and he decided he was going to be with the bad boys.

    "I think Harry has got this streak – a lot of us have, but we put it to one side – of being bad and showing off.

    "He is also wanting to be more important than William."

    HARRY IS NOT ‘ENJOYING HIMSELF AT ALL’ SAYS JULIA HARTLEY-BREWER

    Harry recently made a cameo in Meghan’s 40th birthday video as he juggled in the back garden of the couple’s multimillion-pound mansion in Montecito, LA.

    Julia Hartley-Brewer said: “I don’t think he looks like he’s enjoying himself at all” – before discussing Harry’s private flight.

    “It shows that, A, they’re out of touch, but also, B, they’re huge hypocrites,” Angela said.

    “They tell us all what we have to do, but they don’t think they’re involved in that. They’re the exception because they’re so grand and important.”

    PRINCE HARRY ‘UNQUESTIONABLY CHANGED’ BY MEGHAN, EXPERT CLAIMS

    Ever since Harry married Meghan there has been a huge change in dynamics within the royal family including many rifts between the firm.

    Royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams claims that the “Fab Four idea” was in fact a “disaster”.

    He told Entertainment Daily: “Some say Harry resented not being taken seriously, despite his military service and charitable work.”

    “The ‘Fab Four’ idea, that William and Catherine and Harry and Meghan would work together despite their different roles and personalities was a disaster,” he continued.

    “The rift between them, long reported and first confirmed in the ITV documentary about their South Africa trip, is public and serious.

    “It was his marriage to Meghan which unquestionably changed him.”

    PRINCE WILLIAM WAS ‘FURIOUS’ MEGHAN MARKLE AND HARRY ACCUSED ROYAL OF BEING RACIST OVER ARCHIE IN PUBLIC

    The Duchess of Sussex sparked outrage after claiming the royal relative had revealed concerns about Archie's skin colour.

    But she declined to say who had started those conversations, saying it would be "damaging" for them.

    William was "understood to be 'furious' that private family matters were being discussed in the public domain" according to a new chapter of the book Finding Freedom.

    At the time of the allegations, William hit back and insisted the Royal Family was "very much not racist".

    The Duke of Cambridge leapt to the defence of The Firm on a visit to a school in East London with wife Kate Middleton.

    He told the waiting press the royals are "very much not a racist family" as he and Kate arrived.

    SUSSEXES ‘CONSIDERED NAMING ROYAL WHO REVEALED CONCERNS OVER ARCHIE’S SKIN COLOUR’, BOOK CLAIMS

    The Duchess of Sussex alleged a senior member of the Firm had questioned how dark the couple's first child may be during their explosive TV interview with Oprah Winfrey.

    She also claimed Archie wasn't made a prince after "concerns and conversations" were raised about his complexion.

    Meghan, 40, declined to reveal the identity of the "royal racist" as it would be too "damaging" for them – though Oprah later said it was not the Queen or the Duke of Edinburgh.

    But a newly-released chapter of Finding Freedom, a biography of the Sussexes, says the couple weighed up "sharing this detail" in the bombshell chat, the Daily Mail reports.

    It reveals a source told authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand that the couple had thought about naming the person in question but had ultimately decided not to.

    KATE MIDDLETON REVEALS PRINCE GEORGE’S ADORABLE NICKNAME FOR WILLIAM

    Prince George has come up with an adorable nickname for his dad.

    And we’re not exaggerating when we say it sounds like something straight out of an Enid Blyton book.

    In 2018, Kate Middleton was chatting to fans at Leicester City Football Club when she let the nickname slip.

    When royal fan Fiona Sturgess asked about the couple’s three children, Kate reportedly said: “They are great, thank you.”

    Fiona told People at the time: “Kate said that William was playing football with the children last night.

    “One of them said, I think it was George, ‘Are you playing football tomorrow, Pops?’”

    What’s more, it has also been claimed the couple lovingly use the nickname PG for their eldest son – after his initials.

    They then are reported to have then added Tips to the end of the nickname – after the famous tea brand – before eventually losing PG.

    MEGHAN MARKLE & PRINCE HARRY DONATE TO AFGHAN WOMEN’S AID CHARITY

    HOW ‘MANIPULATIVE’ MEGHAN’S CHANGING SIGNATURE SHOWS SHE’S BECOME ‘DEFENSIVE’ & ‘UNSOCIABLE’, SAYS HANDWRITING EXPERT

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex both signed the letter, in which they admit they had been left “speechless”, with their signatures – and eagle eyed royal fans may have noticed a difference in Meg’s penmanship.

    According to handwriting analyst Tracey Trussell her changing style reveals a lot about Meghan’s personality.

    Speaking exclusively to Fabulous Digital, Tracey reveals the meaning behind Meg’s scrawl from a desire to be genuine to her ‘manipulative’ side.

    Analysing her latest signature Tracey says: “Here Meghan is careful not to make her name larger than Harry’s – whether that’s by design or unintentional, we can’t know, but it means she’s trying not to overshadow her husband.  She’s happy to share an equal platform with him.  

    “We’ve got some mixed messages going on here.  The paradox is that she wants you to believe her intentions are altruistic and humanitarian (under magnification the long downstroke stem of the letter ‘g’ flicks to the right), but the much more closely spaced letters (in her name) and the long extended end stroke are both effective ways of keeping people at arm’s length and not letting anyone get too close.  

    “This is a defensive gesture designed to ward off people or danger. It seems she gives with one hand and takes with the other.”

      MEGHAN MARKLE REVEALS REPEATED ‘GRATUITOUS’ REQUEST IN SUITS WHICH CAUSED HER TO PUT HER FOOT DOWN

      Before she met Prince Harry, Meghan, 40, became known for her role as Rachel Zane, a sassy paralegal in the legal drama.

      Talking of the show in 2014, Meghan reportedly had a word with the show’s creator after scripts kept having her walking into scenes wearing nothing but a towel.

      Speaking at the One Young World conference in Dublin at the time, she said: “This season, every script seemed to begin with Rachel enters wearing a towel. And I said, no, not doing it anymore.

      “I called the creator and I said and I was like, it’s just gratuitous, we get it, we’ve already seen it once. So I think at a certain point you feel empowered enough to just say no.”

      Once a struggling actress and “hungry for work,” the TV star said “you’re willing to do things like that” while trying to make it as an actress.

      PRINCE HARRY’S INVICTUS CHARITY RECEIVES £500K GRANT FROM KATE MIDDLETON & PRINCE WILLIAM WHO ARE DELIGHTED AT ‘SUCCESS’

      The Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge gave the grant despite Prince Harry and Meghan Markle repeatedly – and very publicly – hitting out at the family.

      But the Daily Mail reported the Duke’s charity had seen its best year yet thanks to the grant from the Cambridges.

      A courtier told the publication that the Cambridges had “always supported Harry’s efforts to establish Invictus” and the couple are “delighted that it has been a success”.

      It added that “the huge transfer of £560,984 meant that Invictus could boast an income of £1.77 million last year in newly published accounts.

      “That’s a huge jump on 2019 when its income was £1.06 million.”

      ROYALS WERE ‘QUIETLY PLEASED’ MEGHAN MARKLE DIDN’T ATTEND PHILIP’S FUNERAL AS THEY ‘DIDN’T WANT A CIRCUS’, FRIEND CLAIMS

      The Duchess of Sussex, 39, was unable to attend the service in Windsor Castle in April as she was pregnant with daughter Lilibet Diana at the time.

      But a new chapter in explosive book Finding Freedom claims some royals were happy as they "didn't want a circus", the Independent reports.

      Authors Carolyn Durand and Omid Scobie, who is a friend and spokesperson for Meghan, also quote a senior source who claims the family feared she would "create a spectacle".

      Prince Harry attended his grandfather's funeral after making the 5,400-mile journey from his and Meghan's lavish home in California.

      But it was reported at the time that doctors had advised Meghan to stay behind because of her pregnancy.

      The updated version of Finding Freedom also explores Harry and Meghan's "heartbreak" over Philip's death aged 99.

      MEGA RUDE

      Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been accused of snubbing Kate Middleton by not mentioning a charity she helped set up in a speech about Afghanistan.

      The Sussexes released a statement this week saying they were “heartbroken” over the “fragile” state of the world.

      They spoke out over the chaos in Afghanistan which had left them “speechless”.

      In the statement, released through their Archewell foundation, the couple published the details of three mental health charities.

      But Heads Together, the charitable foundation Kate co-founded with William and Harry in 2017, wasn’t on the list.

      William had said Kate was the brainchild behind the mental-health campaign.

      BIRTHDAY BLOW OFF

      Everyone from Adele to Oprah was involved in marking Meghan Markle’s recent 40th birthday celebrations.

      But there was one notable absence who failed to comment on the occasion – Jessica Mulroney, the woman once considered her best friend.

      The move has reignited rumours about a rift between the two women, especially given Jessica, 41, regularly updates her 416,000 Instagram followers on everything from her daily workouts to what her kids are eating for dinner.

      A source close to Jessica told the Mail on Sunday: “Jess would post about the opening of an envelope, so the fact she’s the only one of Meghan’s close friends not to wish her a public happy birthday is definitely strange.

      “It is something which has certainly raised eyebrows. Yes, Jessica was always protective of her friendship with Meghan. But it was always something that was there, front and centre. You could tell how important it was to Jessica.”
