Royal Family news: Queen concerned Harry's memoirs 'breach privacy' as aides 'plan legal fight over constant attacks'
23rd August 2021

THE Queen has reportedly ordered senior Palace aides to plan a legal fightback against Harry and Meghan – and declared “enough is enough.”

The monarchy’s legal team is consulting libel experts after a barrage of criticism from the US-based couple.

A well-placed source revealed the Queen, 95, has become “exasperated with repeated attacks”.

They said: “The feeling, coming right from the top, is that enough is enough. There is a limit to how much will be accepted and the Queen and Royal Family can only be pushed so far.

“They are getting lawyered up. Harry and Meghan will be made aware and know repeated attacks will not be tolerated.”

The Royal Family was rocked last month by Harry’s revelation he was writing a tell-all memoir to be released next year — the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

A legal warning to publishers Penguin Random House is now being considered.

    MEGHAN MARKLE REVEALS REPEATED ‘GRATUITOUS’ REQUEST IN SUITS WHICH CAUSED HER TO PUT HER FOOT DOWN

    Before she met Prince Harry, Meghan, 40, became known for her role as Rachel Zane, a sassy paralegal in the legal drama.

    Talking of the show in 2014, Meghan reportedly had a word with the show’s creator after scripts kept having her walking into scenes wearing nothing but a towel.

    Speaking at the One Young World conference in Dublin at the time, she said: “This season, every script seemed to begin with Rachel enters wearing a towel. And I said, no, not doing it anymore.

    “I called the creator and I said and I was like, it’s just gratuitous, we get it, we’ve already seen it once. So I think at a certain point you feel empowered enough to just say no.”

    Once a struggling actress and “hungry for work,” the TV star said “you’re willing to do things like that” while trying to make it as an actress.

    THE CROWN SET TO INFURIATE ROYALS BY RETELLING STORY OF PRINCE PHILIP’S ‘CLOSE FRIENDSHIP’ WITH PENNY KNATCHBULL

    This is a Sun Exclusive.

    The Queen’s husband, who passed away in April aged 99, was close to aristocrat Penny Brabourne, who will be played in the Netflix show by Natascha McElhone.

    ut the Duke of Edinburgh spent huge amounts of time with her during the Nineties – the decade covered by season five of the drama – despite the 32-year age gap.

    A TV insider said: “This is a relationship which naturally raised a few eyebrows and sparked quite a few whispers, but Philip and Penny maintained they were just friends.

    “The makers of The Crown believe it is a relationship worthy of exploring and casting a veteran actor like Natascha is a reflection of how high profile the role is.

    “But the highly personal relationship is unlikely to be welcomed as a storyline by Her Majesty or the rest of the Royal Family.”

    ECO-WARRIOR PRINCE HARRY FLEW 750 MILES FROM POLO GAME ON PAL’S £45M PRIVATE JET AS PICS SHOW LUXURY 20-SEATER AIRCRAFT

    The Duke landed in Santa Barbara after taking his millionaire pal’s luxury private jet home — just months after lecturing the world about climate change. 

    He took the two-hour flight to rejoin his wife Meghan and their two children.

    The £45million Gulfstream jet is understood to belong to one of Harry’s polo pals, US businessman Marc Ganzi.

    Last night, royal author Tom Quinn said: “This appears to be enormously hypocritical, given all his talk about climate change.

    “Harry seems to see himself as someone who guides the rest of the world and that his own behaviour isn’t relevant. It is a huge blind spot.”

    PEOPLE WILL TIRE OF HEARING MEGHAN AND HARRY’s ‘SAME OLD CRACKED BROKEN RECORD’ SAYS ROYAL AUTHOR

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s “appetite” for publicity will eventually be the couple’s downfall, a royal expert has warned.

    Writing in today’s Sunday Express, Royal author Margaret Holder says she believes Harry and Meghan’s longing for headlines could backfire on them.

    She wrote: “Perpetuating their victim status may deliver global publicity welcomed by the media giants who have commercial contracts with the Sussexes.

    “However, eventually people will tire of hearing the same old cracked record and the couple will have to reinvent themselves if they are to stay bankable in a rapidly changing market with many competitors.”

    “The Queen has shown admirable patience with her troubled grandson’s repeated provocations while trying to maintain the dignity of the institution of monarchy,” she added.

    OVER 50% OF BRITS AND AMERICANS THINK HARRY AND MEGHAN ‘SHOULD STAY OUT OF WORLD AFFAIRS’

    Over half of Brits and Americans believe it is time for the royal family to sit down and thrash out their differences – and that Meg and Harry should keep out of world affairs.

    In a new poll, people were asked the question, “Should Princes Harry, William and Charles meet face-to-face to try to resolve their issues?”, 72.9 percent in Britain said yes, with an even more substantial 77.6 percent agreeing in America.

    It comes after The Duke and Duchess were criticised heavily for their statement on Afghanistan when they said they felt “many layers of pain”.

    Responding to the question, “Do you think the Duke and Duchess of Sussex should stay out of publicly commenting on world affairs?”, 53.8 percent in the UK and 52.3 percent in the US agreed.

    The twin polls, created by OnePulse for Express.co.uk, put the same sets of questions to respondents in both countries.

    MEGHAN MARKLE & PRINCE HARRY’S DECISION TO NAME DAUGHTER LILIBET IS PROOF THEY’RE ‘CLOSE TO QUEEN’, SAYS PAL OMID SCOBIE

    PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle’s decision to name their child Lilibet shows how “close” they are to the Queen, their pal Omid Scobie believes.

    The Finding Freedom biographer insists the couple’s use of Her Majesty’s childhood nickname gives an “insight” into their relationship with the monarch.

    It comes after a row erupted over the use of Lilibet’s name, with Harry, 36, insisting he spoke to the Queen about using it beforehand. But a palace source told the BBC the Queen was “never asked” about its use.

    And an insider told the Mail on Sunday the conversation between Harry and the Queen was “a telling, not an asking”.

    Scobie told Good Morning America: “When it comes to that relationship with the Queen, it is as strong as ever. They have nothing but love for her. Of course, we saw them name their daughter after the Queen’s very nickname.

    “So that really gives us an insight into that close relationship.”

    PRINCE HARRY JET FROM POLO MATCH ‘ENORMOUSLY HYPOCRITICAL’ SAYS ROYAL AUTHOR

    The woke royal, 36, boarded the 20-seater £45million plane from a polo match in Aspen, Colorado, to his 18,671-square-foot mega-mansion in Santa Barbara, California, on Thursday.

    He took the two-hour flight to rejoin his wife Meghan and their two children.

    The £45million Gulfstream jet is understood to belong to one of Harry’s polo pals, US businessman Marc Ganzi.

    CAMILLA ‘WON’T FORGIVE MEGHAN MARKLE FOR HURTING PRINCE CHARLES’ DURING MEGXIT, INSIDER CLAIMS

    CAMILLA “won’t forgive Meghan Markle for hurting Prince Charles” during Megxit, an insider has claimed.

    Prince Harry claimed his dad stopped taking his calls after Megxit and that he was financially cut off by the Royal Family last year.

    And now, a royal insider has told the Telegraph that not only has the couple’s decision to quit the UK for the US damaged the relationship between Harry and Prince Charles, but it has sparked a rift between Camilla and Meghan Markle too.

    “I don’t think the Duchess will ever forgive Meghan for what she’s done to the Prince of Wales,” they said.

    PRINCE HARRY ‘NOT FINANCIALLY CUT OFF’

    In a sweary podcast chat, Prince Harry described royal life as a mixture of The Truman Show film and being in a zoo.

    The royal also revealed he wanted to quit royal duty when he was in his twenties, saying: “I didn’t want this job.”

    The Duke opened up about his mental health struggles in a brutally frank, and profanity-laden, chat with US podcast host Dax Shepard.

    But it later emerged that Prince Harry got a “substantial” sum from the bank of dad after Megxit — despite his claims he was “cut off financially”. Charles’s annual report, released by Clarence House in June, shows he gave the Sussexes and Cambridges a share of £4.45million.

    Palace sources refused to reveal the exact amount given to Harry — which covered the first four months of their “transition period”. And the report said he will get no more handouts from his father.

    WHAT HAPPENED BETWEEN MEGHAN AND HER BFF JESSICA MULRONEY?

    Meghan is thought to have first distanced herself from Jessica last year, after lifestyle blogger Sasha Exeter accused the Canadian of “white privilege”.

    While Mulroney has denied being a racist, Meghan stayed silent as single mum Sasha said messages from Mulroney left her “paralysed with fear”. Meghan was reported to have “cut ties” with Jessica over the spat, although this has never been confirmed.

    The Mail’s source added: “It’s quite sad. When Jessica stood on the steps of St George’s Chapel on Meghan’s wedding day in front of millions of TV viewers, she really looked like she was on top of the world.

    “Who would have thought she would find herself in the position she’s in now?

    “Of course, all friendships change over time, but it does seem telling that the only one of Meghan’s close friends not to wish her a public happy birthday online was Jess. You have to wonder what is really going on behind closed doors?”

    WHAT WERE THE RACE ALLEGATIONS MADE BY MEGHAN AND HARRY?

    Harry, 36, and Meghan, 40, told Oprah Winfrey earlier this year in a bombshell interview that an unnamed royal had raised concerns over their son Archie’s skin colour.

    An updated chapter of their biography by Omid Scobie this week also accuses the royals of “failing to own” their part in the fallout.

    Harry’s talks with brother William and dad Charles were leaked this year to US TV host Gayle King, a pal of the Sussexes.

    Buckingham Palace declined to comment.

    MEGHAN MARKLE’S BELOVED DOG SHE LEFT BEHIND IN CANADA ‘DOESN’T LIKE HARRY’

    THE DUCHESS OF CORNWALL TEAMS UP WITH MONTY DON FOR GARDENERS’ WORLD ROYAL SPECIAL

    THE Duchess of Cornwall is teaming up with Monty Don for A Gardeners’ World Royal special.

    The Duchess, 74, will appear on this week’s show as Monty, 66, shows her round Longmeadow. The pair will chat about her long standing love of gardening and what she most enjoys growing as they explore the Jewel Garden.

    At one point, the Duchess discusses how important gardens and gardening can be for our wellbeing, especially over the course of the past 18 months and numerous lockdowns.

    She says: “I think gardens got people through Covid, they realised how special a garden was and what they could do with it,they could become inventive, even if they hadn’t before they could start growing vegetables.

    “It was a sort of spiritual experience for them, they discovered a sort of affinity with the soil – you can go into a garden and you can completely lose yourself, you don’t have to think about anything else. You’re surrounded by nature, you’ve got birds singing, you’ve got bees buzzing about – there is something very healing about gardens.”

    INSIDER CLAIM MEGHAN MARKLE ‘DIDN’T LISTEN’ TO CAMILLA’S ADVICE

    Meghan and Harry’s royal exit is still making headlines as “Finding Freedom”, the unauthorised biography by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand makes more shocking claims about the row.

    It is reported that Meghan felt isolated within The Firm from very early on, and Camilla Parker Bowles tried to offer some advice to the Duchess of Sussex.

    A source said: “She doesn’t want to see anyone struggling, and she is fond of Meghan.”

    A friend of the Duchess of Sussex also said:

    “Much like Meghan, Camilla had experienced a lot of negative press and hostility from courtiers due to her relationship with Charles when he was still married to Diana.

    “She was very sensitive to Meghan and provided her with support, advising her to ride out the storm and that it would all pass—but ultimately Meghan didn’t listen.”

    MEGHAN MARKLE’S BEST PAL JESSICA MULRONEY REIGNITES RIFT RUMOURS (CONTINUED…)

    To add further fuel to the fire, Jessica posted a cryptic Instagram caption just days before Meghan's birthday on August 4, then swiftly deleted it.

    "I’ve spoken about mental illness for years," she wrote. "It can be lonely having the world, friends distance from you and not even ask how you are. But thankfully, you find the things that truly matter."

    Commenting on the post, a source said: "Those final words about not even asking how you are is like a reference to that interview Meghan gave to ITV anchor Tom Bradby, when she complained that no one in the Royal Family had asked how she was or 'if I'm OK'."

    MEGHAN MARKLE’S BEST PAL JESSICA MULRONEY REIGNITES RIFT RUMOURS BY NOT WISHING HER A HAPPY 40TH & DELETING CRYPTIC POST

    The move has reignited rumours about a rift between the two women, especially given Jessica, 41, regularly updates her 416,000 Instagram followers on everything from her daily workouts to what her kids are eating for dinner.

    A source close to Jessica told the Mail on Sunday: "Jess would post about the opening of an envelope, so the fact she’s the only one of Meghan’s close friends not to wish her a public happy birthday is definitely strange.

    "It is something which has certainly raised eyebrows. Yes, Jessica was always protective of her friendship with Meghan. But it was always something that was there, front and centre. You could tell how important it was to Jessica."
