Meghan Markle news – Total DISASTER for Prince Harry & Duchess as they destroy hopes of repairing William relationship

MEGHAN Markle & Prince Harry have shot themselves in the foot" by destroying hopes of repairing their fraught relationship with William.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex confirmed no subject was "off limits" during an explosive chat with Oprah Winfrey in March last year, which saw the couple speak candidly to the megastar about their ups and downs as royals.

But Royal expert Ian Lloyd says he believes the rift between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and William can't be healed following a string of bombshell, tell-all interviews.

Mr Lloyd told Express.co.uk: "I just can't see it happening, particularly with William. There was all the stuff about Kate and Meghan crying at the wedding in the Oprah Winfrey interview.

"I think they shot themselves in the foot with William and Kate, I don't think they will get anywhere near them." 

However, he added the feud could be healed "by a long-term investment from both sides".

"I think it would involve Harry spending time here and doing things without giving interviews," he continued.

    Prince Harry ‘unrecognisable’ to Royal family as he ‘can’t seem to stop talking’ to press

    Prince Harry has become almost ‘unrecognisable’ to his family according to a royal expert as he ‘can’t seem to stop talking’ to press.

    Since Meghan Markle and Harry finalised their royal exit with a move across to the states, the Duke of Sussex has used the press to his advantage and has wanted to “blabber to the press” about his experience.

    Speaking to 60 Minutes Australia, royal author Tina Brown discussed Harry’s contradicting attitudes towards the media.

    The host Liam Bartlett said: “He’s a strange mix, isn’t he, on one hand, he has this pathological hatred of the press and on the other hand, he’s quite happy to use them to seal the entertainment deals, to do the headline interviews, to promote his book”.

    Ms Brown said: “It’s certainly a paradox, that a man who kept saying all he wanted was privacy, now can’t seem to stop talking.

    “I think that is baffling to his family”.

    She added: “In fact, one of the things, I heard constantly from within the Royal Family, people, they said, like we don’t recognise Harry.

    “We don’t understand, you know, why he’s doing this, we don’t understand it”.

    A royal biographer has claimed that Prince Harry is stuck in a “privacy paradox” as he can’t stop talking to the press.

    Meghan’s ‘something blue’

    Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are celebrating their fourth wedding anniversary tomorrow. 

    It has been revealed that Meghan’s ‘something blue’ on her wedding day was a piece of fabric from the dress she wore on her first date with Harry 

    Commenting on this, body language expert Darren Stanton, speaking on behalf of Betfair Casino said: “This hidden detail was probably intended to be a private gesture between Meghan and Harry to remind the couple of the early days of their relationship.

    “It reflects the attention to detail the couple have and shows how much they value nostalgia, with its inclusion no doubt evoking for Meghan all the reasons why she was getting married.

    “In psychology, we call this an anchor – a sight, sound, music or sound for example can transport us back to a certain memory in time, evoking all the emotions, thoughts and feelings of that particular time.”

    Bank holiday celebrating Queen to be RUINED

    LONDON Tube drivers have today announced a walk-out during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee bank holiday.

    The move is set to bring absolute chaos to the capital amid the four-day bank holiday in early June.

    Staff who are members of the RMT Union say they’ll stop working at Euston and Green Park stations on Friday, June 3, and have threatened the walk out over bullying allegations and a “toxic working environment”.

    Both stations will be key transport points for the tens of thousands of visitors heading to the city for the celebrations as Green Park is the nearest station to Buckingham Palace.

    The strikes are planned to last the entire day.

    They will affect Victoria, Jubilee and Piccadilly line services at both stations. National Rail services at Euston will not be affected.

    Brits have angrily labelled the union “disgusting” and “despicable”, as one person said they had “absolutely no sympathy” with workers in a post on Twitter.

    “Union and workers – despicable behaviour. Do better,” they wrote.

    Another chimed in saying: “Just horrible… holding the country to ransom when we should be celebrating.

    “Vile. Nurses don’t strike despite their working conditions.”

    Prince Harry makes huge political plea in US

    A huge political plea has been made by Prince Harry in the US as the Duke demands “new laws” in a landmark speech.

    The Duke of Sussex joined 5Rights Foundation as it launched the Global Child Online Safety Toolkit webinar.

    Speaking for the first time about his opinion on social media, he said: “I’m not an expert on law or technology, but I am a father—and I’m lucky enough to be a father with a platform. My kids are too young to have experienced the online world yet, and I hope they never have to experience it as it exists now. No kid should have to.”

    He continued: “It is not realistic to protect kids from everything. We need new laws. We need public pressure. We need strong leadership.”

    Invictus Games cast in controversy

    PRINCE Harry’s Invictus Games has been cast in controversy after the Help for Heroes charity was dropped from preparing the UK team for the games which will next be held in 2023.

    Britain’s Ministry of Defence has taken the contract away from the charity – which has recruited, selected, supported and trained Team UK since Harry founded the first games in 2014.

    The MoD took the decision to dump Help for Heroes after the charity said it wanted to evaluate whether the Invictus Games were still providing value for money for members of the public who support the charity. 

    Lis Skeet, Services Director at Help for Heroes, said: “Help for Heroes is incredibly proud to have trained, supported and delivered Team UK for the past five Invictus Games.

    “Unfortunately, therefore, we will no longer be directly involved in Invictus Team UK. We want to emphasise that this was not a decision we made ourselves.”

    A spokesman for the Invictus Games Foundation added: “This was a decision taken by the UK Ministry of Defence following proposals for the team structure moving forward, and not a matter for the Invictus Games Foundation.

    “Across our participating nations, we work alongside many military organisations and charities to support international wounded, injured and sick service personnel and veterans, including our programmes beyond the games, and will continue to do so with Help for Heroes.”

    Prince Harry, 37, who is patron of the Invictus Games Foundation, has not spoken publicly about the decision.

    A huge cash boost

    Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s massive hike in their home’s value, soaring way above the average increase in California’s super-heated housing market, could be contributing to whispers that the royal couple is considering selling up and moving.

    It could also be a fast way for Harry and Meghan to address any immediate cash flow problems they might face.

    Their £100 million Netflix deal is looking shaky, after the streaming service lost 200,000 subscribers in the last quarter and axed Harry and Meghan’s planned animated series Pearl.

    Their £16 million Spotify podcast deal is also under scrutiny, after they produced only one episode more than a year after signing their lucrative contract.

    The couple also set Netflix executives’ noses out of joint by sitting down for exclusive talks last year with Oprah Winfrey for CBS TV, and this year with NBC TV, rather than for Netflix.

    Meghan & Harry’s Cali mansion DOUBLES in value

    Prince Harry and Meghan have earned a staggering £12 million in the past two years – by doing nothing more than staying at home.

    Their luxury Montecito mansion, which they bought for £11.93 million ($14.6 million) in June 2020, has more than doubled in value in only 23 months.

    The 18,671 sq ft home in oceanside Montecito, which boasts nine bedrooms and 19 bathrooms, is now valued at £23,960,720 ($29,350,320) million by property website Redfin – meaning Meghan and Harry would make £12 million if they sold today.

    Rival website Zillow puts the value of Harry and Meghan’s home at £21.6 million ($26,485,500), but claim it could fetch as much as £30 million ($36.81m)

    It has a pub games room, swimming pool and separate guesthouse where Meghan’s mother Doria stays when she visits from her home in Los Angeles, 90 miles to the south of Montecito.

    “Property prices have soared in the past 18 months, and show no sign of stopping,” a local luxury estate agent told The Sun.

    “Harry and Meghan only had to sit back and watch their home’s value sky-rocket.”
