Meghan and Harry latest news – Royal BOMBSHELL as Prince William ends Sussex feud over Christmas after hellish year

PRINCE William ended his feud with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle over Christmas, insiders have claimed.

William and Harry are said to have put their differences aside, "reconnected" via video call and are now speaking regularly once again, according to royal expert Katie Nicholl.

She told Entertainment Tonight that the Princes exchanged presents over video call, adding "The relationship is much better than it was. For a start, they are on talking terms, and not only on talking terms, they do speak relatively regularly. They were very much in touch over the holidays."

It comes as the newly vaccinated Queen is expected to offer an “olive branch” to the couple as she plans to host Trooping the Colour in London on June 12 to mark her official 95th birthday.

And despite Meghan and Harry missing several key events over the past 12 months, including Christmas and Remembrance Sunday, the Queen is expected to invite the runaway royals to attend the celebrations.

    Prince Charles is launching a £7.5billion industry scheme in a bid to help save the planet.

    The Prince of Wales will tell a summit today that mega-rich global companies can invest in sustainability projects.

    The aim is to get companies to improve the environment and spend on clean air and water, fertile soils and sediments and biodiversity.

    The Prince’s “Terra Carta” initiative gives fundamental rights to the environment.

    He will say: “I am making an urgent appeal to leaders, from all sectors and from around the world to give their support to this ‘Terra Carta’.

    MEGHAN’S SNACKING HABITS REVEALED

    Meghan has spoken a fair bit about her diet in the past, and confirmed that one of her go-to healthy snacks is watermelon.

    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.”

    The mum-of-one also prefers a healthy drink to gorging on takeaways.

    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.”

    SOMETHING IN COMMON

    Meghan’s son Archie and Princess Eugenie’s baby could have something in common when the tot arrives next year.

    If Eugenie decides to give birth in the same hospital that she was born in back in 1990, then the new royal baby and Archie Harrison will immediately share a similar story.

    Meghan welcomed Archie, one, in London’s The Portland Hospital back in May 2019.

    Meanwhile, Eugenie and her sister, Princess Beatrice, were also born in the American-owned hospital.

    In fact, when Sarah Ferguson gave birth to eldest daughter Beatrice in August 1988, it made her the first member of the royal family to give birth in a non-NHS hospital.

    HARRY & MEG LAUNCH BID FOR COMEDY SHOWS

    The couple want to make and sell funny programmes along with dramas and thrillers.

    Animations and children’s series could also feature if the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are granted permission to establish a TV and film company.

    Now they have filed documents with the UK’s Intellectual Property Office for trademark protection for Archewell Productions.

    A source said: “Meghan and Harry’s approach to their TV ambitions has always been serious — but it’s hard to imagine them coming up with the next Only Fools and Horses.”

    MEGHAN & HARRY’S EXISTENCE IS ‘POINTLESS IN SELF-EXILE’

    Royal expert Hugo Vickers made the harsh comments following complaints from listeners that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s newly released Archewell podcast is “dull and preachy.”

    Speaking to the Telegraph of the couple’s decision to “isolate” himself from his family by relocating to Santa Barbara, he said: “It's a pointless existence in self-exile.”

    Vickers went on to compare the Sussexes to Prince William and Kate Middleton who threw their support behind the NHS this summer.

    He continued: “During the NHS clapping, I thought how, after the Cambridges clapped, it would have been great to have heard from him.”

    An insider said: "Fiction is something she has always wanted to try her hand at, and she could be assured that anything she writes would sell well, regardless of its quality.

    "Fiction, be it children's books or adult, would be a powerful way of conveying the messages of their woke brand."

    ARCHIE PICKS UP MEG’S AMERICAN ACCENT

    Archie could be heard speaking for the first time when he wished listeners a Happy New Year on his parents Archewell podcast.

    And listeners heard how the tot had picked up his mum’s American accent.

    Experts at Spoons voices said: “There are a number of studies that suggest children pick up accents from the environment they're in or people they're around the most. 

    “Archie could be spending loads of time with mama Meghan hence a slight leaning towards her accent. 

    “The great thing is that having to recognise the same words pronounced in different ways will supercharge young Archie's ability to map and connect words to meanings.”

    MEGHAN LIKELY TO TOSS RULEBOOK 'OUT THE WINDOW'

    Meghan Markle "may use Trooping the Colour to use her hair, makeup and clothing choices to further break away from Royal protocol", predicts a celebrity podcaster.

    The Queen has offered a shock olive branch to Meghan and Prince Harry by inviting them to her birthday parade.

    The newly vaccinated monarch is hoping to get "back to business" as soon as she can and is planning to host Trooping the Colour in London on June 12 to mark her official 95th birthday.

    But beauty influencer Scott McGlynn predicts of Meghan: "I imagine she will be making it known publicly that the rule book is very much thrown out of the window" with her hair, makeup and clothing choices at the poignant event.

    FEARS HARRY & MEGHAN WILL USE BIRTHDAY PARADE FOR ANNOUNCEMENT

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle could use a visit to London's Trooping the Colour as an opportunity to make an announcement, warns an influencer.

    The couple "have a habit of announcing their news on days that are marked for other Royals," says Scott McGlynn, celebrity podcaster and beauty influencer.

    He told The Sun Online: "We saw it when Meghan announced her pregnancy at Princess Eugenie’s wedding."

    And, two days ago, "when other Royals were celebrating Kate’s birthday with sweet social media messages, Harry and Meghan took the opportunity to abruptly announce they will not be using social media in the future.

    "There was no happy birthday message for Kate on social media from the couple. This is rather telling that the alleged feud is not over."

    MEGHAN MARKLE TO 'UP FASHION GAME IN UK'

    Meghan Markle "will use Trooping the Colour, which will be their first trip to the UK since Megixit, to up her fashion game," predicts a celebrity podcaster and beauty influencer.

    Scott McGlynn exclusively told The Sun Online: "With Kate stealing the title of 2020’s best dressed Royal, Meghan may choice to steal the limelight by using fashion and beauty as her 'secret weapon', to ensure all eyes are on her.

    "Meghan knows how many people will be tuning in and she will want to make this engagement as impactful as possible, just like she did on their 'farewell tour' of Britain in March 2020.

    "It is well known in her inner circle that she wants to be known as a 'global style icon' and she will likely use the opportunity to her advantage.

    "Especially on the balcony at Trooping the Colour – Harry and Meghan will be sidelined by other senior Royals in terms of ranking order, so she will leave no stone unturned to stand out."

    ROYAL BROTHERS NEED TO QUASH RIFT RUMOURS

    It's "vital" that Princes William and Harry "are seen interacting with each other with fondness in front of the public, to squash the rumours of a rift between them", advises a London-based PR guru.

    Rebecca May, founder of RM Publicity, was talking to The Sun Online about the possible visit to the capital by Meghan Markle and Prince Harry to watch the Trooping the Colour event, after an invitation from the Queen.

    In the wake of Megxit, Rebecca adds of the possible visit: "I imagine, like before, they may not wish to stay in London for too long.

    "This may hinder an opportunity to heal the alleged rift between themselves and William and Kate."

    But, should the Sussexes and Cambridges appear at the event, "this will also benefit Meghan and Kate’s relationship and how it is perceived behind closed doors, if the brothers reconnect in front of the cameras.

    "Otherwise, the couples will not be doing themselves any favours."
