    Meghan's entry into politics criticised

    MEGHAN Markle has been criticised by a Republican congressman after her "laughable" attempt to enter US politics with an open letter.

    Missouri Representative Jason Smith has demanded the royal family should strip the Duchess of her title after she signed the letter “Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.”

    The Duchess called for paid parental amd medical leave for families, and reflected on her own experiences in a struggling, low-wage family.

    But Congressman Smith told the MailOnline: “Ms. Markle’s latest interference in U.S. politics reignites the question in my mind as to why the Royal Family does not simply strip her and Harry officially of their titles, particularly since she insists on sending this under the pretence of being the Duchess of Sussex."

    He continued: “While her attempts at appealing to working class families by recalling her days of eating at Sizzler were laughable, her comments make crystal clear that the passage of this massive tax-and-spend bill is aimed more at helping global elites get huge tax breaks than helping the working families she claims to have dined with."

    Meghan wrote to top US Democrat politicians Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer calling for them to act on giving parents paid parental leave.

    ‘The Queen has suffered a lot this year’

    As well as losing Philip this year, the monarch has been hit by attacks on the Royal Family by Harry and Meghan and controversies around Prince Andrew.

    A source said: “The Queen has suffered a lot this year, including the death of her beloved husband.

    “She is becoming a little less resilient and needs a little more help — although she is doing well for somebody of her age.

    “Her courtiers have noticed the Queen becoming more weary and perhaps more fragile than she was — and who could be surprised?”

    Queen ‘doesn’t like to disappoint people’

    The Times reports how palace aides may “discreetly keep an eye” on Her Majesty’s late TV viewing habits as the 95-year-old is reportedly a devoted fan of BBC drama Line of Duty.

    Royal historian Huge Vickers said: “The problem is that the Queen does not want to disappoint people.

    “She can say no to people, but by and large she doesn’t. What you’ve got to do is pace her.”

    Meghan Markle told to ‘stick to acting’

    Furious republicans have told Meghan Markle to “stick to acting” following her “politically motivated” letter to Congress.

    The Duchess of Sussex, 40, wrote a lengthy plea to two Democratic lawmakers in Washington DC on Thursday in which she advocated for paid family leave.

    But now incensed politicians have hit back at Megan for daring to “intervene” in US politics – even calling on the Queen to strip the royal of her titles.

    In a rant to the Mail Online, Republican Jason Smith, who represents Missouri, said: “Ms. Markle’s latest interference in U.S. politics reignites the question in my mind as to why the Royal Family does not simply strip her and Harry officially of their titles, particularly since she insists on sending this under the pretence of being the Duchess of Sussex.”

    Royal experts had previously called her letter, addressed to Democrats Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, a “first try” for the Duchess to move into politics.

    Queen will be joined by relatives on public visits

    THE Queen will be joined on future public visits by another member of the Royal Family to avoid letting people down last minute in case of health scares, it is reported.

    The “knackered” monarch, 95, who spent the night in hospital for tests last week after cancelling official duties, will be accompanied by one of her children or grandchildren when she appears in public in the future.

    Members of the Royal Family have already increased the number of engagements they carry out with the Queen after the death of the Duke of Edinburgh in April.

    And her children and grandchildren will now play a key role in the Queen’s day-to-day work.

    The new working model will allow her to rest if she needs to without disappointing anyone with last-minute changes or cancellations, The Telegraph reports.

    Queen, 95, wants to go back to work THIS WEEK 

    THE Queen wants to return to work this WEEK after a surprise hospital stay saw her miss a scheduled Northern Ireland trip.

    The monarch, 95, seems to be bouncing back – defying reports that she was “knackered” after taking on a punishing 19 jobs in as many days.

    An unnamed royal source said the Queen was keen to continue her official duties this week, reported the Mail Online.

    "Her private office will constantly look at her diary and tweak it as and when is necessary," they added.

    The report comes hours after a source told The Times: "She is knackered."

    She spent the night in hospital for tests last week after cancelling official duties.

    Queen forced to miss church service

    THE Queen was forced to miss church yesterday as she rested after her health scare.

    The deeply religious sovereign, who rarely fails to attend, had been due at All Saints Chapel in Windsor.

    Her no-show came after she spent a night in hospital last week.

    Yesterday’s cancellation on doctors’ advice was the first time she’s missed prayers at Windsor’s All Saints Chapel in Windsor since she returned from her summer break.

    Palace insiders said Her Majesty wants to be at her best to greet world leaders at the COP26 summit in Glasgow next Monday.

    Royal author Angela Levin said: “I am delighted she did not go to church because she is perhaps ­listening and agreeing to temporarily step back.

    “Going to church on a Sunday sounds just a small event but it is a very big thing for the Queen and for any woman of her age.

    “She is very religious and it is very important personally for her to go to church every Sunday.

    “But she has to come out of the nice little bubble she has at ­Windsor Castle, get in and out of cars and up and down in church. It is all exhausting.

    “It is very sensible to give it a miss so she can do more in the future.”

    St Dunstan’s, a private school in London has introduced classes talking about “white privilege” where Meghan Markle will be included as a topic of conversation.

    Nicholas Hewlett, headmaster at the school said teachers would “explore with students the difficulties faced by both Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton when they joined the Royal Family but [learn] that Meghan Markle faced additional challenges based on social speculations associated with her race”, as reported by The Sunday Times.

    The private school with annual fees ranging from£12,501 to £19,068 depending on the age of its pupils, have introduced the lessons due to a surge in interest in the Black Lives Matter movement.

    William name-checks Harry in rare shine of unity

    PRINCE William generously name-checked Harry in a rare show of unity as he thanked friends for their late mum’s statue.

    Despite the strain on their relationship since Megxit and the Oprah Winfrey interview, he said the brothers were “both happy” with it.

    Harry, 37, returned to Britain for the Princess Diana statue ceremony in July, but missed the private reception at Kensington Palace held to thank donors and friends.

    But Wills, 39, stepped in and spoke on behalf of himself and his brother.

    A source said: “It was very intimate and sweet.

    “There was a real family feel as many of Diana’s 17 godchildren were also there.

    “William made a brilliant speech saying thank you from him and Harry and how happy they both were with the statue.

    “He mentioned Harry by name. The brothers are barely on speaking terms but it’s clear the Princess Di statue has done some good.”

    Suing the ‘childish’ daughter

    Thomas Markle said he could sue Meghan Markle and Prince Harry in order to see his grandkids.

    The estranged dad, who is yet to meet his grandkids Archie, two, and baby Lilibet, said the Duchess of Sussex was “childish” to cut him off.

    Speaking on Good Morning Britain, Thomas, 77, said: “I’d love to see my grandchildren.

    “People have suggested in California I could sue to see my grandkids.

    “But I think if I did that I’d be doing the same thing Meghan and Harry are doing.”

    He explained: “I don’t want to include my grandchildren in this situation, I want to see my grandchildren with friendly parents and friendship all around.

    “I don’t want hostile parents when seeing my grandchildren. So I’ll wait.”

    Palace aides told to ‘cut back’ Queen’s ‘exhausting’ schedule 

    PALACE aides have been told to “cut back” the Queen’s “exhausting” schedule following her health scare, it’s been reported.

    It’s also been said that the Queen will be joined on future public visits by another member of the Royal Family to avoid letting people down last minute in case of cancellations.

    Sir Edward Young,  the Queen’s private secretary, last night faced calls to ‘be ruthless’ and purge the Monarch’s diary after she spent a night in hospital.

    Officials are said to be drawing up a list of “core” functions and events that the Queen will prioritise, reports the Mail on Sunday.

    Her attendance at the UN climate change summit in Glasgow in November still remains in the diary – but a final decision will not be made until later this week.

    ‘Basher Wills’

    According to Robert Lacey’s royal biography Battle of Brothers, William was called ‘Basher Wills’ or ‘Billy the Basher’ by his classmates. 

    The royal biographer wrote: “Still not ten years old, William was already establishing the pattern of open disdain and aggression towards his father that would mark his early adult life – but more of that later.

    “The young prince had picked up his nicknames of ‘Basher Wills’ or ‘Billy the Basher’ when he joined Mrs Jane Mynors’ Nursery School in Notting Hill, not far from Kensington Palace, in September 1985. 

    “Noisy, cheeky and defiant of discipline, Wills soon angered his classmates by pushing his way to the front of the dinner queue and getting involved in playground fights.”
