Royal Family news – Terrified Queen 'wont slam door on Prince Harry' because she fears the 'devastating consequences'

THE Queen won't slam the door on Prince Harry because she fears the "devastating consequences" for his mental health.

Although she is said to be quietly devastated by the Duke and Duchess' relentless "truth bomb" attacks on the Royal Family, the Queen's priority is understood to be her grandson's well-being.

Royal expert Angela Levin tweeted "My view is that Harry's family in London are very worried about his mental health and think slamming the royal door in his face could have devastating consequences.

Levin was responding to reports that Kate Middleton recently said that even after Harry and Meghan's devastating Oprah interviews it still isn't too late to "pull them back in".

    PIERS MORGAN COMPARES MEGHAN AND HARRY TO VLADAMIR PUTIN AND KIM JONG-UN

    PIERS Morgan has blasted Meghan Markle and Prince Harry for "marching around like they're Kim Jong-un with a dash of Vladamir Putin."

    In a dramatic new TV interview for 60 Minutes Australia, Piers launched a fresh attack on the Sussexes, calling them a "woke" couple who spread "downright lies."

    The dramatic clip shows the former Good Morning Britain host being interviewed, as he blasts: "Who are these 'woke' people?

    "Marching around like they're Kim Jong-un with a dash of Vladamir Putin."

    Speaking about Meghan and Harry's sensational interview with Oprah Winfrey in March, he goes on to say: "There were downright lies, that would make the Archbishop of Canterbury a criminal."

    Piers, dubbed "king of controversy refuses to be cancelled," then claims: "Meghan Markle had personally complained to the boss of my company.

    PRINCE ANDREW'S MARITAL HOME REPLACED BY ULTRA MANSION

    A Kazakh oligarch paid Prince Andrew £3 million more than the asking price – of £12 million – for his home in Sunninghill Park in Ascot, Berkshire in 2007.

    This was even more strange after it had been on the market for five years after it was compared to a Tesco superstore.

    Now, years after it was purchased by Timur Kulibayev it was razed to the ground with plans to rebuild it.

    The 12 bedroom home was given as a gift from the Queen to Andrew and Sarah Ferguson.

    ‘DISGRACEFUL’ SWIPE AT PRINCE CHARLES

    Royal aides reportedly want Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to give up their titles after a “disgraceful” swipe at Prince Charles’s and Prince Philip’s parenting skills.

    It came after the Duke of Sussex suggested he had been failed by his dad after he claimed he moved Archie and Meghan to the USA to “break the cycle” of “genetic pain” from his own childhood. 

    Senior courtiers told the Mail on Sunday that the Duke’s attack had prompted a sense of “bewilderment and betrayal” in the palace. 

    Prince Harry’s documentary series with Oprah Winfrey was released earlier this month on Apple TV.

    Harry had previously claimed that he had to make deals with Netflix and Spotify after revealing to Oprah he had been cut off by the Royal Family following Megxit.

    MEGHAN AND HARRY 'ARROGANT' FOR 'PICKING AND CHOOSING'

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle want to be part of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee next year, despite stepping down as senior royals in 2020. 

    But a royal expert has claimed it is “arrogant” for the couple to want to “pick and choose” what royal events they attend, and it “smacks of hypocrisy.”

    The Duke of Sussex wants to be included in next year’s four-day bonanza for the Queen, with plans being released by Buckingham Palace.

    Phil Dampier, author of Royally Suited: Harry and Meghan In Their Own Words, told Fabulous: “I think it is arrogant of Meghan and Harry to opt out of things they don’t want to do, ie, normal royal duties and representing the Queen throughout the Commonwealth, but they are quite happy to come back and pick and choose.

    “If you are not supporting the Monarchy, why celebrate 70 years on the throne. 

    “Obviously he wanted to come back for Prince Philip’s funeral which is fair enough as it’s his beloved grandfather, but coming back to celebrate the Jubilee, it does smack a bit of hypocrisy.”

    THE TIES THAT BIND

    It’s one of the most famous wedding dresses in history – and now Prince Harry and Prince William have put aside their differences so royal fans can see their late mother’s bridal gown in a new exhibition.

    The feuding brothers have agreed to loan Princess Diana’s iconic dress to the Royal Style in the Making exhibition at Kensington Palace.

    It comes ahead of what would have been Diana’s 60th birthday on July 1 which will be marked by Harry and William unveiling a new statue of their mother.

    The Princess of Wales’s ivory silk taffeta wedding dress will be displayed complete with its spectacular sequin train which was encrusted with over 10,000 pearls.

    The stunning dress – designed by David and Elizabeth Emanuel – was made of antique lace (something old), material from a British silk farm (something new) and even had a small blue bow sewn into the waistband (something blue).

    This is the first time Princess Diana’s dress will be on display in Kensington Palace since 1995

    HUMAN REMAINS FOUND JUST YARDS FROM MEGHAN AND HARRY’S CALIFORNIA MANSION

    Human remains have been found just yards from Harry and Meghan’s £11million mansion.

    The bones from a small adult were unearthed by workers doing landscaping on an estate just along the road.

    They are thought to be those of a Native American and date back centuries.

    Their age will be determined by a forensic anthropologist called in by police.

    Landscapers made the discovery last week while working at an estate in Riven Rock Road in Montecito, California.

    PALACE PARTY

    Brits will get an extra Bank Holiday in a four-day Platinum Jubilee bonanza to celebrate the Queen’s 70 years on the throne, Buckingham Palace revealed today.

    Her Majesty, 95, will be treated to a special celebration involving 1,400 parading soldiers, 200 horses and 400 musicians to celebrate her 70th year on the throne in June 2022.

    It is the first time any British monarch has reached this historic milestone.

    The government already confirmed Brits will be treated to a four-day weekend to mark the special occasion.

    But the Palace today said the extra days off will “provide an opportunity for communities and people to come together and celebrate the historic milestone”.

    DIANA’S WEDDING DRESS GOES ON DISPLAY IN NEW EXHIBITION

    Fashion fans and royal followers will be able to get a close-up look at the dress that Diana, Princess of Wales, wore on her wedding day in 1981.

    The dress, complete with its 25ft sequin-encrusted train which dramatically filled the aisle of St Paul’s Cathedral, will be on show for the first time at Kensington Palace in 25 years.

    Diana’s children, the Dukes of Cambridge and Sussex, have loaned the gown to the London exhibition Royal Style in the Making, which opens to the public on June 3 and continues to the new year.

    The temporary exhibition looks at what it is like to design an outfit for a royal client.

    The dress that Diana wore when she married “is now among the most famous in bridal history”, organisers say.

    THE QUEEN’S ROYAL SECRETS #2

    Despite being one of the most recognised figureheads in the world, the Queen still has some secrets; here are a few more…

    1. The Queen is woken by her personal bagpiper every morning and can tell if her usual piper is not playing.

    2. Every morning, the Royal breakfast table is laid out with cornflakes and other cereals in Tupperware containers, yoghurt and two kinds of marmalade – light and dark.

    3. When she crossed a Corgi with a Dachshund to create the Dorgi, the Queen perhaps unwittingly began the craze for designer cross-breeds.

    4. The Queen doesn’t have a passport as all UK passports are issued in her name.

    5. Although she’s most often seen in a chauffeur-driven car, the monarch passed her driving tests in 1945 and has been known to take a spin around her own estates.

    THE QUEEN’S ROYAL SECRETS

    Over the decades she’s welcomed a string of Prime Ministers and become a grandmother, and a great-grandmother.

    But despite being one of the most recognised figureheads in the world, the Queen still has some secrets; here are a few…

    1. Although her parents and sister Margaret called her “Lilibet”, Prince Philip’s pet name for her was “Cabbage”.

    2. She collects pepper grinders.

    3. Since the civil list was abolished in 2010, her income is set at 15 per cent of the profits from the Crown Estates – about £42.7 million annually.

    4. The Queen prefers Earl Grey tea and enjoys a gin and Dubonnet at the end of the day.

    5. When Prince Philip and the Queen were courting, People Will Say We’re in Love, from the musical Oklahoma, was their song.

    BUCKINGHAM PALACE REVEALS PARTY PLANS FOR QUEEN’S PLATINUM JUBILEE

    Buckingham Palace has released new details of the celebrations to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022:

    • There will be a special four-day bank holiday between June 2-5
    • Trooping the Colour will be staged in full for the first time since the pandemic and is scheduled on June 2.
    • The next day there will be a Service of Thanksgiving for the Queen’s reign at St Paul’s Cathedral
    • On Saturday the Queen will be joined by members of the royal family for the Derby at Epsom Downs
    • Later that evening a live concert will be staged at Buckingham Palace – called the Platinum Party at the Palace.

    PALACE ‘HAD PRACTICE OF NOT EMPLOYING MINORITIES FOR CLERICAL JOBS IN 1960S’

    One of the Queen’s most senior aides revealed in the late 1960s it was not the “practice” to employ “coloured immigrants or foreigners” to clerical posts in the royal household, archive documents have shown.

    Lord Tryon, the keeper of the privy purse at the time, spoke about minorities in the royal workforce in documents unearthed by the Guardian newspaper.

    The paper also outlined how in the late 1960s civil servants and senior figures from Government negotiated with royal aides an exemption for the Queen and the household from legislation designed to prevent race discrimination.

    A Buckingham Palace spokesman stressed the Queen and the household comply with the present Equality Act “in principle and in practice”, adding: “Claims based on a second-hand account of conversations from over 50 years ago should not be used to draw or infer conclusions about modern-day events or operations.”

    WILLIAM ‘WILL NEED BROTHER’S SUPPORT WHEN HE’S KING’

    When he eventually becomes King, William will need far more support from his brother, Prince Harry, says a report.

    William will have “arguably one of the most important jobs in the world, and he’s going to need the support of the person who has been his right-hand man since he was a child,” said Myka Meier, founder of Beaumont Etiquette.

    She told Vanity Fair: “There’s nobody that knows him quite like Harry.”

    COMMON FOODS THE ROYAL FAMILY CAN'T EAT

    Her Majesty avoids pasta, potatoes and garlic at dinner – unless she is at a state banquet.

    According to former Royal chef Darren McGrady, she is has a strict “no starch” rule when dining at home.

    The Queen also avoids garlic and her chefs are told to keep it from her food – probably wise when you spend your days meeting and greeting strangers.

    Darren said: “We can never serve anything with garlic or too much onions.

    “We also couldn't serve meat that was rare, as she liked her meat more well done.”

    MORE ON GUARDIAN STORY ABOUT CLAIMS THAT OFFICIALS BANNED PEOPLE OF COLOUR FROM TOP POSTS

    Race has become an important issue for the monarchy after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex accused an un-named member of the royal family of commenting about how dark their son Archie’s skin tone might be before he was born.

    The Duke of Cambridge has defended the monarchy against Harry and Meghan’s claims, saying soon after they were made “we’re very much not a racist family”.

    It is understood records on representation were not kept at the palace before the 1990s, so it is not known when minorities were first employed in clerical roles.

    A Buckingham Palace spokesman added: “The principles of Crown Application and Crown Consent are long established and widely known.

    “The Royal Household and the Sovereign comply with the provisions of the Equality Act, in principle and in practice. This is reflected in the diversity, inclusion and dignity at work policies, procedures and practises within the Royal Household.

    “Any complaints that might be raised under the Act follow a formal process that provides a means of hearing and remedying any complaint.”

      DEBATE OVER JUBILEE PLANS

      Prince Harry and Meghan Markle want to be part of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee next year, despite stepping down as senior royals in 2020.

      FOUR-DAY BANK HOL FOR JUBILEE – BUT WHAT HAPPENS IF THE SUSSEXES ATTEND THE CELEBRATION?

      The Palace has confirmed that Brits will be given a four-day Bank Holiday weekend so they can celebrate the Queen’s 70th year on the throne next June.

      But, an insider said: “Harry wants to be there. It is already causing a headache and is going to be very awkward.

      “Where will they be positioned if they turn up? What events can they attend? Will we put them on the Buckingham Palace balcony for the flypast?

      “This is a celebration for the Queen’s 70 years of service to the nation and should not be overshadowed.

      “There are now so many questions about what to do with Harry and Meghan.”

      THE PRESIDENTS MA'AM – JOE BIDEN TO MEET THE QUEEN

      The Queen is to host Joe Biden at Windsor Castle — making him the 13th US President to meet her.

      Mr Biden and First Lady Jill will see the monarch next Sunday when they are in Britain for the G7 Summit.

      The Queen was just Princess Elizabeth when she met her first president, Harry Truman, at the White House in 1951. His successor, Dwight Eisenhower, saw her twice, before John F Kennedy came to Buckingham Palace for a banquet.

      She never met Lyndon B Johnson — though her sister Margaret did on her US tour in 1965.

      She has seen every president since — Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George Bush, Bill Clinton, George W Bush, Barack Obama and Donald Trump.

      PRINCE WILLIAM CALLED THE QUEEN 'GARY'

      Prince William comically called the Queen “Gary” when he was young after struggling to correctly pronounce “Granny”.

      “The Queen was on hand after William fell over at Buckingham palace, bawling: ‘Gary, Gary’,” revealed high society gossip columnist Richard Kay in the Daily Mail.

      “A guest who went to help asked who Gary was, assuming it must be a member of the royal household.

      PRINCE CHARLES GETS HIS CLOTHES MENDED, RATHER THAN BUYING NEW

      Prince Charles is well-known for sending his clothes to be mended rather than throwing them away.

      The outfit he re-wore to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding he originally acquired in 1984.

      But now his Scottish-based foundation is linking up with a top Italian online fashion group to design a new chic and sustainable collection.

      The Prince’s Foundation and YOOX Net-a-Porter are offering "a life-changing opportunity" for recent fashion and textiles graduates based in the UK and Italy with the launch of the second edition of The #ModernArtisan.

      It will be based at Dumfries House in Ayrshire, the stately home Charles saved for the nation, and where his foundation is head quartered.

      MEGXIT TO PROMPT PARLIAMENTARY DEBATE OVER FUTURE MONARCHY – DIANE ABBOTT

      The British monarchy could drastically change as a result of Megxit and the Sussexes’ complaints about members of the royal family, says an MP.

      Former shadow home secretary Diane Abbott told Vanity Fair: “I think the monarchy as we know it will last as long as the queen is alive.”

      However, after she dies, “I think there will be a big public debate.

      “I think what the royal family and their advisers did with Meghan will be part of the argument for change,” she added.

      Abbott told the mag that the royal debate could even reach Parliament, with a “clamour to look at the current arrangement and maybe move to a more Scandinavian monarchy, where you don’t have all the pomp and ceremony.”

      MEGHAN MARKLE ‘MAY NEVER RETURN TO THE UK’ – ROYAL AUTHOR

      Meghan Markle may never return to the UK again, warns a royal author.

      Anna Pasternak told Vanity Fair: “I truly wonder if Meghan will ever set foot on British soil again.”

      But Peter York, coauthor of The Official Sloane Ranger Handbook, told the mag: “The ideal reconciliation will be if, in some way, the Queen can engineer it while she’s still around.

      “It would serve the monarchy to show that, as it were, brotherly love, grandmotherly love, had triumphed.”

      PRINCE CHARLES'S PET NAME FOR 'TOUGH' MEGHAN

      Prince Charles has a secret pet name for his daughter-in-law, Meghan Markle, and fans consider it a big compliment.

      The List narrator Christine-Marie Liwag Dixon told viewers: "It seems that Prince Charles had a lot of respect for Meghan's resilient nature.

      "This was evident in the secret nickname he reportedly had for her: 'Tungsten'.

      "As royal correspondent Russell Myers revealed on Lorraine in 2019, Charles nicknamed her after the metal as 'she is tough and unbending'.

      "Tungsten is the strongest naturally occurring metal on the planet.

      "That makes this a pretty neat compliment all things considered."

      DUCHESS OF SUSSEX 'VERY DAMAGING'

      The Queen will find Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's behaviour "deplorable", a royal expert has claimed.

      Richard Fitzwilliams, a royal commentator, has said Harry and Meghan's explosive allegations will hurt the Royal Family.

      Mr Fitzwilliams told The Daily Star: “The Sussexes’ activities, when they’ve spoken out, have been very, very damaging.

      "There’s no doubt about it.”

      He added: “The Queen will have found the way the Sussexes have handled things, I think, deplorable.

      MEGHAN MARKLE'S CHIILDREN'S BOOK COULD FLOP OVER SUPPLY ROW

      Meghan Markle's first children's book is at risk of flopping after Waterstones pulled its publisher's books from displays in a row over supply.

      The 39-year-old's book The Bench was expected to be released to the public on June 8.

      However, her publisher Penguin Random House is in a spat with Waterstones, the Telegraph reported.

      Penguin Random House has reportedly limited the credit it will give to Waterstones – meaning the bookseller can only buy a certain amount from the publisher.

      In response, Waterstones has yanked Penguin Random House books from its displays at 283 stores across the UK.
