Meghan Markle news latest – Heartbroken Prince Charles 'enormously let down' by Harry's shock Oprah interview claims
19th March 2021

Prince Charles "feels enormously let down" by shocking claims made during Meghan and Harry's Oprah interview, according to reports.

A source close to the royal household told People: "The prince believes in diversity and his actions show that.

"He was the first person to highlight the Windrush generation and the contributions they made to British society.

"He has worked hard for the Muslim community.

"Of all the members of the royal family, he has taken this issue the most seriously."

A palace source was also reported to have said that Charles had had a "complicated relationship" with his two sons, which was "not a straightforward" father and son relationship.

It comes as Meghan was blasted as "unworthy" and "fake" over her interview with Oprah Winfrey in a shock rant on Australian TV.

The Duchess of Sussex complaining about her time in the Royal Family would have left viewers feeling nauseous, according to Sky News Australia presenter Alan Jones.

In an anti-Meghan outburst that has been compared to Piers Morgan's infamous rant on GMB, Jones said "I am sure there were many people reaching for the chuck bucket over this Oprah Winfrey interview"

"If these two had any public support left, which I doubt – it was all lost today," he added.

He then hit out at Meghan for claims she made about an unnamed member of the Royal Family supposedly expressing "concern" about the potential skin colour of her son Archie.

"The Meghan Markle way you see… Condemn everyone name no one – the tactic of an unworthy person," he said.

On Meghan's sensational claim that she and Harry secretly married in private the day before their televised wedding, Jones said "He said: "That about sums it up doesn't it. The wedding was a fake – the lady's a fake."

The rant comes as a source claimed Prince William is “worried” that private conversations with his brother will be “plastered over American TV”.

One source close to Prince William said: “There's a lack of trust on both sides which makes moving forward very hard. 

“William is now worried that anything he says to his brother will be plastered over American TV.”

The brothers have barely spoken to each other for more than a year after Harry and Meghan announced Megxit on their Sussex Royal Instagram page.

    WHAT’S IN A NAME?

    MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry COULD have given son Archie a prestigious title but chose not to, it’s claimed.

    Experts say the couple had the chance to take advantage of a long-standing royal tradition to allow their son to become the Earl of Dumbarton. However, that would mean he would not be a Prince or an HRH, reports the Mirror.

    Unlike William’s children – Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis – Archie doesn’t have any royal title.

    Instead he goes by his full name Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

    It was previously thought his parents were involved in talks about what he would be called with claims they didn’t want him to have a title to allow him to lead a more “normal” life.

    COUPLE ‘WOULD HAVE PULLED OPRAH CHAT IF WORST HAPPENED TO PHILIP’

    Meghan and Oprah’s close friend has revealed that their explosive interview WOULD have been postponed if Prince Philip’s condition had worsened.

    Gayle King, a presenter on CBS, the network which screened the £6.5million sit-down, confirmed that bosses had monitored the health of Prince Harry’s 99-year-old grandfather.

    “They had done that interview before Prince Philip went into hospital and if something, God forbid, had happened to him, the interview would not have run at this particular time,” she said.

    “But the interview was done and was scheduled before he went into the hospital.”

    Philip arrived home at Windsor in “good spirits”  this week after his longest ever stint in hospital.

    HARRY WHO?

    Harry Redknapp has revealed he once met Prince Harry in the waiting room of a Soho physiotherapist – and didn't recognise him.

    The football manager says he couldn't place the Royal and went on reading his paper after casually shouting 'alright mate' at the Prince who simply replied 'hello' from across the room.

    Speaking on his podcast The Harry Redknapp Show, Redknapp said: "I've had a couple of nightmares with the Royals.

    "I went to a physio in London. I had a bad knee and Jamie knew this guy who's probably the best physio in the country.

    "Suddenly one guy stands up and shouts up to me 'hi Harry'. I'm reading the paper, so I looked at him and went 'alright mate', and carried on reading the paper.

    "I thought 'I know him from somewhere,' and I'm looking and thinking 'who is he? Did he used to play for me somewhere? Is he a footballer?'.

    "Suddenly it came to me and I went up to the girl behind reception and said 'is that who I think it is?', and she went 'yes, it is Prince Harry'.

    ‘KATE MORTIFIED BY CLAIMS SHE MADE MEGHAN CRY’

    Kate Middleton is reportedly “mortified” by claims she made Meghan Markle cry during the wedding feud because she’s “very careful with how she treats others”, royal expert claims.

    In the explosive Oprah Winfrey interview earlier this month, Meghan shut down rumours that she made Kate, 38, cry over an incident concerning bridesmaids’ dresses and insisted it was the Duchess of Cambridge who upset her.

    The incident happened two years ago when it was believed Meghan “left Kate Middleton in tears,” but it re-emerged during the tell-all chat.

    Meghan revealed: “She (Kate) was upset about something, but she owned it, and she apologised. And she brought me flowers.”

    She also said: “There wasn’t a confrontation and I don’t think it’s fair to her to get into the details of that because she apologised, and I have forgiven her. What was hard to get over was being blamed for something that not only I didn’t do, but that happened to me.”

    DUCHESS ‘WAS BANNED FROM GETTING COFFEE WITH MUM’

    According to Meghan Markle’s friend Omid Scobie, the Duchess was “virtually stuck inside Frogmore Cottage for weeks on end” and was “banned” from getting a coffee with her mum.

    Writing for Harper’s Bazaar, the royal biographer said: “Lunch with friends could have momentarily lifted her spirits, but social outings were dismissed by royal family members and aides who said it would be better to lie low.

    “Her image was ‘everywhere right now,’ they told her.”

    When Doria Ragland visited Windsor in summer 2019, the Duchess’ mother is alleged to have told her: “You’re stuck here.”

      Piers Morgan has been spotted for the first time since his Meghan Markle rant on Good Morning Britain became Ofcom’s most complained about moment ever.

      OPRAH CHAT WAS 'PLUG' FOR APPLE DEAL

      Meghan and Harry's interview was a "clear plug" for the Duke's Apple deal with Oprah, a TV insider has claimed.

      Oprah gave the upcoming mental health series a shout out during the bombshell interview – which was part of Harry's agreement as "co-partner and co-creator", according to claims.

      The Sussexes and Oprah both have publicly insisted no money was paid to the couple for the CBS interview.

      But Harry's lucrative deal with Apple includes promotional work – which could include its mention during the two-hour interview, according to an LA consultant who works with the company.

      Here's the story.

      KATE MIDDLETON WOULD HAVE BEEN 'MORTIFIED' BY CLAIMS SHE MADE MEGHAN MARKLE CRY

      A royal family expert claimed Kate, 38, would have been left "mortified" by claims she made Meghan cry.

      Speaking to OK! magazine, royal expert Kate Nicholl explained: "Kate has never wanted any suggestion of a rift with Meghan to come out in the press, so for this story to be circulating is very hard."

      The royal expert added there are "different versions" of the story and claimed that Meghan and Prince Harry know Kate is "not in a position to respond".

      She told the publication: "From what I hear, there are different versions of the bridesmaid story, not just the one Meghan discussed. Kate felt it was all sorted, so to have it brought up again was mortifying. Kate is not in a position to respond and Meghan and Harry know that."

      Kate also said that the interview with Oprah has left Kate "saddened, disappointed and hurt" and it's been a "very hard" few days for her.

      William is “worried” that private conversations with his brother will be “plastered over American TV”, a source has revealed.

      Buckingham Palace has insisted it will make no further comment on the revelations from the Oprah interview, but sources told Vanity Fair there were fears the Sussexes “want to keep fuelling the soap opera”. 

      One source close to Prince William said: “There's a lack of trust on both sides which makes moving forward very hard.
