    PIERS MORGAN CLAIMS CBS WILL 'EXPLOIT' PHILIP'S ILLNESS

    Piers Morgan claimed CBS "will exploit" Prince Philip's illness in Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's explosive interview – as he demands they cancel it.

    Piers said: "CBS, I bet they won't move it, whatever happens.

    "In fact, if something God forbid does happen with Prince Phillip, CBS will want to exploit it. Of course they will, it's an American network, they'll want to exploit it for ratings.

    "The question is, what's Prince Harry going to do in that situation? If the Duke [of Edinburgh] takes a turn for the worst. What's he going to do?

    "Is he going to allow his whining about what a tough life he has from his LA mansion to go out on prime time TV?"

    HEIR THIS

    The royal family have “more important things to worry about” than Meghan Markle & Prince Harry's tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey, according to royal aides.

    Senior royal sources told The Sun the family was “pretty appalled” by the idea of the recorded chat with Oprah Winfrey being broadcast while Philip is in hospital.

    Now Buckingham Palace aides have told The Telegraph that the family’s focus is solely on the poorly Duke.

    One said: “The family is very worried about him and their thoughts are very much with him rather than this Oprah interview. They have much more important things to worry about.”

    While another senior aide said: “This programme is really not something we are focusing on at the moment.”

    'BREAKING POINT'

    Meghan Markle faced an "almost unsurvivable" struggle during her time as a royal, Oprah Winfrey suggests during her bombshell interview with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

    In one of two 30 second previews, the talk show Queen tells Meghan "it sounds like there was a breaking point".

    Sitting alone with the Duchess in an outdoor location understood to be Santa Barbara, California, Oprah says: “Almost un-survivable sounds like there was a breaking point.

    "Were you silent or were you silenced?”

    'NO SUBJECT IS OFF LIMITS'

    Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's interview has been extended to a two hour special as Oprah reveals that "no subject is off limits."

    In a dramatic preview of their tell-all interview, Harry says that his "biggest concern was history repeating itself" in a hint towards his mother's own struggle in the royal family.

    CBS has now said that the "primetime special" with Meghan and Harry will be extended from 90 minutes to 2 hours – and is set to first broadcast on Sunday 7 March from 8pm ET.

    OPRAH ACCUSED OF 'PAINTING QUEEN AS MAFIA BOSS'

    Oprah has been accused of painting the Queen as a "mafia boss" in her interview with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry – as royal experts slammed the suggestion the duchess was "silenced".

    The preview of Duke and Duchess of Sussex's tell-all interview was criticised as "nonsense" after the clip showed Oprah dramatically ask Meghan if she was "silent or silenced" in the royal family.

    But the claim is "ridiculous" and unfairly paints the Queen as a mob boss like Don Corleone from The Godfather, royal experts said.

    WON'T MEG WAY

    Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey won’t be cancelled even if Prince Philip’s illness worsens, according to reports.

    Producers are reportedly refusing to pull the “tell-all” chat with one insider saying it has the potential to detonate a “diplomatic bomb” if the Duke of Edinburgh’s health worsens.

    A TV insider suggested CBS will go ahead regardless after selling “millions of dollars” worth of advertising and have “no loyalty to the Royal Family”.

    They told the Mirror: “CBS has sold millions of dollars worth of advertising around the interview, but bosses are aware of the delicacy of the Duke’s heath.

    “They have no loyalty to the Royal Family, although some feel as though they do to Harry and Meghan.”

    FOR DUKE'S SAKE

    Harry and Meghan were last night urged to think of poorly Prince Philip and delay their Oprah TV chat.

    Senior royal sources said the family was “pretty appalled” by the idea of the recorded chat with Oprah Winfrey being broadcast while Philip lies in hospital.

    Royal watchers called for the interview to be shelved until he is out of danger.

    Penny Junor, who wrote Prince Harry, Brother, Soldier, Son, said: “It’s bad timing when they’re going to be saying ‘poor us’.”

    A senior royal source asked: “Why are they doing it?”

    MEGHAN’S FAVOURITE £6 NIVEA BODY CREAM 

    When it comes to achieving glowing skin like Meghan Markle, we'll try just about anything. 

    But the Duchess has made no secret of which body product she uses to keep her skin in tip-top condition in the past and it's good news if you're sticking to a strict beauty budget.

    Meghan previously revealed to BeautyBanter: "I use the Nivea Q10 Firming Body Moisturiser religiously.

    "It's honestly my favourite lotion on the market, it's so affordable, and makes my skin look and feel amazing. I would buy a case of this at a time if I could find it!"

    But the claim is "ridiculous" and unfairly paints the Queen as a mob boss like Don Corleone from The Godfather, royal experts said.

    The talk-show host is also heard saying that there's "no subject that's off-limits" adding that the royal pair went through some "almost unsurvivable" ordeals.

    Robert Jobson, a biographer of Prince Charles and the Duke of Edinburgh, said the trailer was packed with "over the top, melodramatic nonsense."

    THIS IS THE £19 PRODUCT MEG USES TO LOOK MORE AWAKE

    The duchess has opted for a nude-tone of eye pencil instead of her trademark dark eyeliner, make-up expert Francesca Abrahamovitch told the Daily Mail.

    And Charlotte Tilbury sells the perfect one for just £19.

    And she's been applying it just below her lower waterline, which can make anyone look like they've had a full eight hours sleep (sounds like magic to us).

    Francesca said: "If you still want smoulder, smudge your dark pencil below it.

    "As long as you steer clear of that all-important waterline, you'll maintain the eye-brightening illusion."

    MEGHAN 'CHANNELS DIANA' WITH WARM GREETINGS

    She may be one of the most famous women in the world – but that doesn’t stop Meghan Markle greeting royals fans with a hug.

    Last year, the Duchess of Sussex was pictured embracing attendees of her Smart Works clothing range and even got round an awkward encounter at the One Young World summit with a hug.

    Leading etiquette expert William Hanson told Fabulous Digital: "As an American, Meghan would be more used to greeting strangers and acquaintances with a hug – standard practice in the US.

    "Brits prefer a handshake, reserving hugs and social kisses for close friends and family.”

    Grant Harrold, the former butler to Prince Charles, told MailOnline that Meghan’s down-to-earth body language is “showing that the British royal family is a modern 21st-century family" and that she is determined to "carry on Diana's tradition” of hugging.

    In comparison, body language Judi James said: “As a future Queen Kate has always followed royal etiquette to the letter and this would include using the handshake as the norm.”

    MEGHAN & HARRY'S LIST OF GOOD DEEDS

    The couple have released a "list of good deeds" for Brits to do in the lead up to this year's International Women's Day.

    Posting to their Archewell website, the ex-Royal couple created a list of deeds that are "real acts of compassion for the women in your life and in your community".

    The list includes a mixture of practical examples: "pick up the phone and check in on a friend", "order from a woman-led restaurant" and "make a meal for a woman in your community".

    While other deeds seemed vague and so less-practical: "achieve birth justice for all moms, not just some."

    In a past interview, she said: “On set and at home, I try to always have a container of watermelon sprinkled with cinnamon because it elevates the flavour just a notch, and makes it feel special."

    Speaking of her fast food choices, she told The Chalkboard in a past chat: "A green juice. That’s fast. And it’s food. It’s been many moons since I went through a drive thru."

    MEGHAN MARKLE HAD TO 'REINVENT HERSELF' BEFORE MARRYING INTO ROYAL FAMILY

    Before she married into the Royal Family, Meghan Markle was most famous for her role in Suits.

    Speaking ahead of the Royal Family in 2018, royal expert Victoria Murphy claimed the former actress would have to "reinvent herself".

    The expert said: "She has had a long time to have an independent life to forge her own opinions, and she has very much made a career of promoting herself – of putting herself forward.

    "She had an Instagram account, and she's been very open and outspoken about a lot of things. And these are things that are going to have to change."

    "It does feel like a need for a bit of reinvention really, she is really kind of parking what she's done before and moving herself into her new role."

    PIERS MORGAN SLAMS MEGHAN AND HARRY'S 'SELF-WALLOWING NARCISSISM'

    Piers Morgan has slammed Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's "self-wallowing narcissism" during their interview with Oprah Winfrey.

    Piers accused Harry and Meghan of being "hypocrites" for complaining about being hounded by the press but also agreeing to the interview with Oprah.

    The Good Morning Britain host also criticised Harry for saying life was "unbelievably tough" in California after leaving the Royal Family.

    Morgan wrote for the MailOnline: "I've watched all this with increasing disdain and repeatedly ridiculed their obvious double standards and extraordinarily arrogant desire to want to have their privacy cake and eat it as they exploit their royal status for huge financial gain.

    "It really does take a staggering degree of self-wallowing narcissism to say those words after a year in which 2.5 million people have died in a global pandemic and tens of millions have lost their jobs and are suffering horrific financial hardship."

    MEGHAN PAYS TRIBUTE TO DIANA BY WEARING HER £17K BRACELET

    Meghan Markle has paid tribute to Princess Diana in her subtle jewellery selection for her interview with Oprah Winfrey.

    The pregnant Duchess of Sussex can be seen wearing Diana’s sparkling £17,700 Cartier tennis bracelet for the occasion. 

    She also donned a £1,400 Aquamarine Collette Pendant Cord Necklace from sustainable designer Pippa Small, and a £5,000 Cartier love bracelet, which is believed to have been a present from Harry.

    This brought Meghan’s jewellery up to a staggering £24,100, and was in addition to her £3,300 Armani gown and £535 Aquazurra heels.

    When Princess Diana died in 1997 her priceless jewels were left to Prince William and Prince Harry, who divided up the gems to give to their future wives.
