The US Sun 03 September, 2021 - 03:31pm

News Corp is a network of leading companies in the worlds of diversified media, news, education, and information services.

Royal biographer Clive Irving said The Queen has "never really understood" her eldest son, who is next in line the throne.

"All those around the Queen never measure up to that at any point. Her own family has not measured up to that. Charles never measures up to that," Irving said.

Mr Irving also claimed that Prince William is the only royal who fully appreciates the Monarch's "very dedicated sense of duty", reports Express.co.uk

And Prince Harry has blamed misinformation around the slow uptake of vaccines around the world.

Speaking at a surprise appearance during the GQ Men of the Year awards, the Duke said: "We cannot move forward together unless we address this imbalance as one.

"At the same time, families around the world are being overwhelmed by mass-scale of misinformation across news media and social media, where those who peddle in lies and fear are creating vaccine hesitancy, which in turn leads to divided communities and eroding trust."

WHAT IS RUMOURED TO BE IN PRINCE HARRY’S BOOK SO FAR?

EXPLAINED: WHAT IS PIERS MORGAN FEUD WITH MEGHAN MARKLE AND PRINCE HARRY?

Over the years, Piers has criticised Meghan, repeatedly calling her “fake”, a “ruthless social climber” and accused her of using her marriage to “get to the top”.

The media broadcaster has also described Prince Harry as hypocritical, accusing the Duke of “playing the victim”.

It is long-running commentary that has seen Morgan accused of bullying, sexism, and racism.

While the feud has remained one sided with the Duke and Duchess staying tight-lipped on Morgan’s take-downs, the pair have been vocal in their criticism of the media.

MEGHAN MARKLE ‘MORE DETERMINED THAN EVER’ TO GET THE LAST WORD & SPEAK OUT AFTER PIERS MORGAN OFCOM VICTORY, EXPERT SAYS

Furious Meghan Markle is said to be”more determined than ever,” to get the last word and speak out after Piers Morgan’s Ofcom victory.

This will make the divide “even deeper” between the Sussexes and the Royal Family, according to an expert.

Speaking about Meghan’s next move, writer and broadcaster Adam Helliker told The Sun Online: “I think she’s going to feel more determined and it will up her game so to speak. 

“She will convince all her followers that this is how Britain operates. I think she will see it as yet another method of protecting the Royal Family.

“And it just kind of – the divide is getting ever deeper. And the longer it goes on, the rift, you just wonder, how on earth can they ever come back from that?

“They will up their game in terms of putting out more statements, being more independent and just pushing away even further.”

SUSSEXES COULD APPEAR ON BIG SCREEN, OMID SCOBIE HINTS

As the Duke and Duchess continue to form strong relationships amongst LA’s elite, it seems they could be broadening their horizons after stepping back from the Royal family by planning to appear on the big screen.

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.”

ITV’S STATEMENT ON PIERS’ INVESTIGATION IN THE WAKE OF OPRAH WINFREY’S INTERVIEW WITH THE DUKE AND DUCHESS OF SUSSEX

After careful consideration, the broadcaster found the programme, nor Piers Morgan, was not in breach of our broadcasting rules.

PIERS MORGAN SAYS QUEEN OF WOKE MEGHAN MARKLE CAN’T SILENCE US ANYMORE – IF SHE CAN HAVE HER VIEWS THEN I CAN HAVE MINE

The ex-GMB host was yesterday cleared by Ofcom after accusing Meghan of making up claims in her and husband Harry’s interview with Oprah Winfrey that a senior royal had been racist, and that Meghan’s mental health had suffered.

Piers called her a “whiny, forked-tongue actress” and said the report was a “resounding defeat for Princess Pinocchio”.

He told The Sun: “The woke brigade think they can vilify, shame, silence and get fired anyone who has an opinion they don’t like.

“Meghan Markle is the queen of this culture, who personally sought to have me lose my job — and succeeded.

“Why are she and Prince Harry entitled to have their opinion but I’m not entitled to mine?”

PIERS MORGAN JOKES ‘AWKS’ AFTER WATCHING PRINCE HARRY GIVE SURPRISE SPEECH AT GQ AWARDS FOLLOWING OFCOM VICTORY

The TV presenter, 56, was in the audience for Harry’s anti-vaxxer rant just hours after he won his Ofcom complaint against him and Meghan Markle.

He shared a story on his Twitter this morning about him watching the royal’s speech, simply saying: “#awks”.

Piers sensationally quit Good Morning Britain in March following a heated debate about Meghan’s mental health.

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.”

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.

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.”

PRINCE HARRY WILL TARGET CAMILLA PARKER BOWLES IN HIS £29M MEMOIR

PRINCE Harry will target his stepmother Camilla Parker-Bowles in his tell-all £29m memoir and may even name the “royal racist”, Paul Burrell has claimed.

Princess Diana’s former butler said the Duke is “set to reveal any Camilla secrets” as he dishes the dirt in his memoir, due to be released in 2022.

The 36-year-old won’t hold back on the woman who cooly “stepped into Diana’s shoes” after her death, because his publishers “want their money’s worth,” according to Burrell. But it could only exacerbate the ongoing Royal family feud as he believes Prince Charles will be “livid” if he tarnishes the Duchess of Cornwall.

His highly-anticipated four-book deal, which promises to delve into the “highs and lows” of his extraordinary life, has already got the Palace on pins – and now the ex-Royal butler believes he will provide “names and specifics”.

The 63-year-old told Closer magazine: “The publisher, Penguin, will no doubt want their money’s worth in this book deal. That means they won’t want vagueness – they’ll want names and specifics.”

HARRY COMPARED TO EDWARD VIII AFTER HE FADED OUT OF PUBLIC VIEW – AND WROTE AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY

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

Edward, who abdicated in 1936 to marry American divorcee and socialite Wallis, wrote a ghost-written autobiography after he was cut off with no source of income.

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.

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.”

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.

MEGHAN MARKLE AND PRINCE HARRY WILL MAKE A MOVIE AS THEY ‘AIM HIGH’ IN LA

THE Sussexes close pal Omid Scobie has hinted the couple could have plans to make a movie in the pipeline as they aim to conquer the US.

PIERS MORGAN BRANDS MEGHAN MARKLE A ‘WHINY FORK-TONGUED ACTRESS’ AND ‘DEMONSTRABLE LIAR’ AFTER OFCOM WIN

Following the sensational win for free speech, he said Meghan wrote to his ITV boss Dame Carolyn McCall demanding “his head on a plate,” as the Duchess used her “gender” to get through to McCall – which Piers calls “nauseating.”

Piers wrote in the Daily Mail: “What has the world come to when a whiny fork-tongued actress can dictate who presents a morning television news programme?

“It was preposterous that I had to leave a job I loved because I didn’t believe a demonstrable liar.”

He added: “Make no mistake, this is a watershed moment in the battle for free speech.

“None of the couple’s most sensational and damaging statements about racism and mental health have yet been supported by a shred of evidence amid furious denials from the Royal Family. 

“So, my observation that I didn’t believe Meghan Markle is looking stronger by the day. And for the record, I still don’t believe her.”

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.

MEGHAN MARKLE AND PRINCE HARRY ‘PROUD’ OF THEIR NEW LIFE IN AMERICA

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are said to be proud of their new life in America despite a “difficult” few years.

In a new epilogue of the book Finding Freedom, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are reported to have no regrets about their decision to quit royal life.

The Royal Family was hurled into crisis mode when the couple quit the Firm last year and the Queen was forced to publicly respond to claims made in their bombshell Oprah interview.

But Town & Country reports that in an updated chapter of Finding Freedom, authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand say “as difficult as recent years have been, neither Harry nor Meghan have any regrets about the decisions they have made”.

SUSSEXES COULD APPEAR ON BIG SCREEN, OMID SCOBIE HINTS

OMID SCOBIE SAYS MEG & HARRY’S ‘STEP INTO HOLLYWOOD’ IS ‘GOING TO BE REALLY INTERESTING’

 Meg and Harry’s £112 million deal with streaming giants Netflix, who could provide the perfect platform to showcase their ideas.

“It’s only a matter of time before they’ve acquired the rights to a really incredible story, that they’re able to bring to life through a movie or a television drama,” Scobie continued.

“We’ve heard a lot about the non-scripted work that they’re doing. There is that whole side of the production company that is scripted. So it’s only a matter of time before we actually see that come to life.

“I think that that’s really exciting because it’s a side of them that we’ve never seen or heard of before, but also one that we know they’re both eager to get into.

“So being able to step into Hollywood a bit but trying to do it in the way – as they were describing – a much more impactful and socially conscious way – that’s going to be really interesting.”

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.

EXPLAINED: WHAT DID HARRY SAY IN THE OPRAH INTERVIEW?

Harry also made a series of claims that have since been questioned.

He described to Oprah the moment he took Archie for a bike ride in California, and said he was unable to enjoy that as a child.

However, on at least two occasions in Scilly Isles and and Sandringham while still a child, he was photographed riding behind his dad, just like Archie.

He also said he was “literally cut off financially” by the Royal Family.

This is disputed by Clarence House and Prince Charles. who has funded Harry and Meghan.

He also benefited from millions left by Princess Diana and the Queen Mother.

In shocking and insensitive scenes, the actress playing the 40-year-old Duchess is seen lying in the wreckage of an overturned car, surrounded by photographers.

A desperate Harry pushes his way through the mob before pulling the door open, where a seriously injured Meghan pleads with him to “help me.”

But the crash is just a nightmare and Harry wakes up and is comforted to see wife Meghan and baby Archie.

The sickening scenes mirror the real-life tragedy of Harry's late mother, Princess Diana, who died in a car accident in Paris in August 1997.

The footage is 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.

The drama – which will be broadcast in the US on Monday - will explore the “real details” behind the decision that eventually drove the couple to leave their royal life behind.

BUCKINGHAM PALACE ‘FURIOUS’ AT QUEEN’S SECRET DEATH PLANS BEING LEAKED

Top officials are said to be on the warpath, with a probe into who revealed the documents under way.

The secret blueprint for Operation London Bridge - the codename for the plans - reveals every detail of the official response, from Charles' 'mourning tour' of the UK to what royals will post on social media.

It also details fears that London will be "stretched to breaking point" as millions of mourners head to the capital.

The top-secret document was handed to a political website in a shocking breach.

And aides are now tracking the person responsible after the plans made headlines around the world.

Such details are meant to remain private and embargoed - as they were when the Duke of Edinburgh died in April.

Prince William ‘heartbroken’ over Sussex allegations

Geo News 03 September, 2021 - 12:48pm

During their interview with Ann Griper on Pod Save the Queen they admitted Prince William has been ‘deeply hurt’ by the accusations.

Reportedly, “The issues about whether they (Harry and Meghan) were prepared to name the so-called 'royal racist' – the member of the Royal Family Harry and Meghan had claimed had made derogatory comments about the skin colour of their unborn child.”

“They were then persuaded not to (Finding Freedom claims), that would have been particularly explosive, especially because Harry said in the Oprah Winfrey interview he was choosing not to name that person because it would be very damaging to their reputation.”

He also went on to say, “William was furious, as the book puts it, that she was choosing to air their dirty linen in public.”

“I think you can tell by William's reaction when he was asked by a TV correspondent whether the Royal Family is a racist family, and he said, paraphrasing, that they certainly are not a racist family.”

“You could tell in his voice and his manner at that time, that he was particularly aggrieved. We've spoken about it at length, William was deeply hurt that that was their course of action.”
