Meghan Markle latest news: Harry & Meg 'blissfully unaware of the mayhem they cause' as Duke to appear in Philip TV film

THE BBC look set to finish filming a special programme honouring the late Prince Phillip.

Plans for the hour-long show include interviews with many members of the royal family and it is understood that both Prince Harry and Prince Andrew will appear.

Prince Harry had previously dated the actress for two years, however the pair went their separate ways two years prior to the Prince meeting his future wife.

Author and publisher Andrew Lownie claims that the sussexes leaving the Royal Family was a move pushed by Meghan.

Mr Lownie spoke to Express.co.uk revealing that he thought Harry would have had an easier time had he married his ex-girlfriend Cressida.

He said: “Just think of Harry, if Harry had married Cressida Bonas, [would] we have the problems that we have now? No.”

    KATE MIDDLETON ISN’T THE MOST INTERESTING MUM AT PRINCE GEORGE’S SCHOOL

    When your dad is the heir to the throne, it is understandable that George and Charlotte must stand out at school.

    However, they aren’t the only pupils of £19k-a-year Thomas's Battersea with a famous parent, as there is another very successful mum doing the playground drop-off too.

    One parent told the Daily Mail: "No one really gives Kate a second glance when she does the school drop-off.

    "We have a Victoria's Secret model doing the school run, too, and the dads are far more interested in her."

    The identity of the model hasn't been revealed, but it's safe to assume she's most likely graced numerous high-profile red carpets and A-list events.

    PAPERS HAVE NOT YET BEEN SERVED ON ANDREW DESPITE ‘MULTIPLE ATTEMPTS’

    The papers have not yet been served on Andrew or his lawyers despite “multiple attempts” in the past two weeks at Royal Lodge, Windsor.

    He is now set to remain in the safety of the Queen’s private estate when his sex abuse case is heard on Monday.

    An insider said: “Andrew was going stir-crazy inside Royal Lodge for the past few weeks. He wasn’t going horse riding and couldn’t step outside because of attempts to serve him with the legal papers.

    “He knows he is far safer up at Balmoral on the Queen’s estate.

    “Andrew is always described as the Queen’s favourite son but she is meant to be on holiday at Balmoral.

    “With Andrew and everything that is happening with Charles and the investigation into cash for honours she must be wondering when she will get any peace and quiet.”

    MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry’s children will soon have a new playmate, it has been reported.

    The Duke’s childhood pal Guy Pelly is expecting baby “number three” with his wife, Holiday Inn heiress Elizabeth Wilson, and they “couldn’t be more excited”.

    KATE MIDDLETON ONCE POPPED INTO A PUB WITH PRINCESS CHARLOTTE FOR A VERY RELATABLE REASON

    Stunned pub goers watched Prince William‘s wife and daughter pull up in a Range Rover, to use the facilities.

    Kate and Charlotte, then three, are said to have walked hand-in-hand into The Phoenix in Stockwell, South London, as they popped in for a wee.

    When it happened, in December 2018, pub local Maggie McKinney told the Mail Online: “The little kiddie just trotted in with her mum, went to the toilet and then trotted out.

    “They could not have been in the pub for more than ten minutes.

    “They seem very nice, totally normal. Princess Kate was holding her daughter’s hand. Princess Charlotte was just any other little girl.”

    It was reported a staff member came in ahead of the Royals, to ask if they could use the loo.

    MEGHAN MARKLE ‘MORE DETERMINED THAN EVER’ TO GET THE LAST WORD & SPEAK OUT AFTER PIERS MORGAN OFCOM VICTORY, EXPERT SAYS

    This is a Sun exclusive.

    Furious Meghan Markle is said to be”more determined than ever,” to get the last word and speak out after Piers Morgan’s Ofcom victory.

    This will make the divide “even deeper” between the Sussexes and the Royal Family, according to an expert.

    Speaking about Meghan’s next move, writer and broadcaster Adam Helliker told The Sun Online: “I think she’s going to feel more determined and it will up her game so to speak. 

    “She will convince all her followers that this is how Britain operates. I think she will see it as yet another method of protecting the Royal Family.

    “And it just kind of – the divide is getting ever deeper. And the longer it goes on, the rift, you just wonder, how on earth can they ever come back from that?

    “They will up their game in terms of putting out more statements, being more independent and just pushing away even further.”

    LADY LOUISE WINDSOR FACES BIG ROYAL DECISION AS SHE APPROACHES 18TH BIRTHDAY

    Lady Louise is the daughter of Prince Edward and Sophie. In two months she will turn 18, and when she reaches the milestone she will decide if she wants to use the HRH title.

    The Countess of Wessex told the Sunday Times in 2020 that: “we try to bring them up with the understanding they are very likely to have to work for a living.

    “Hence we made the decision not to use HRH titles.

    “They have them and can decide to use them from 18, but I think it’s highly unlikely.”

    Louise’s brother, Viscount Severn will also face the same decision when he celebrates his 18th birthday. He is only 13 so has some time to make up his mind.

    ‘HEALING’ THE RIFT (CONTINUED…)

    Mr Helliker said: “The link between Harry and Philip is even greater than his other grandchildren – including William.

    “Because Philip was the last surviving veteran, he and Harry always had that in common. I think he will have looked on Harry as a bit of a rebel.”

    However, he said Philip would have been “disappointed” that Harry chose to step away from royal duties.

    “Taking part in it and viewing it back – wherever they are in the world, they will think how incredible to have this man a grandfather,” he said.

    “Maybe it will just bring Harry up to a jolt.

    “He might think, ‘Is this worth giving up, is this worth not supporting? Have I let everyone down?'”

    And Philip may have liked the idea that the documentary would reunite his grandsons, Mr Helliker said.

    PRINCE HARRY & WILLIAM COULD START ‘HEALING’ TALKS TO MEND RIFT AFTER UNITING FOR PRINCE PHILIP DOCUMENTARY, SAYS EXPERT

    The brothers will share their memories of their grandfather as part of a new documentary on the Duke of Edinburgh’s life.

    Royal author Adam Helliker said the BBC film could mark a turning point for the princes – and may help to end their feud.

    The last time the princes met face-to-face was at the unveiling of a statue of their late mother, Princess Diana.

    And while they appeared to be on good form for the event this summer, Harry left just 20 minutes after the statue was revealed before returning to the US.

    Mr Helliker told the Sun Online that the documentary may do what the recent meeting couldn’t.

    “I think it could be a rallying moment, a healing moment when they all remember someone who was such a pivotal member of the Royal Family,” he said.

    The film may provide an “excuse” for Harry or William to pick up the phone, he said.

    THE QUEEN RARELY USES HER REAL NAME – EVEN THOUGH IT HAS SPECIAL MEANING

    When the monarch was born in 1926, her birth certificate listed her full name as Elizabeth Alexandra Mary.

    Of course, the Elizabeth part is well known, and it was chosen in tribute to her mum, the Queen Mother, who also had the same name.

    And it turns out her middle names also have sweet meanings too.

    It is thought that Alexandra was chosen in honour of her great grandmother Queen Alexandra, who was the wife of King Edward VII.

    Queen Alexandra died in November 1925 at the age of 80, just months before the Queen was born.

    MEGHAN MARKLE AND PRINCE HARRY WILL MAKE A MOVIE AS THEY ‘AIM HIGH’ IN LA, PAL OMID SCOBIE HINTS

    Scobie revealed on the Royally Obsessed podcast: “I had a very interesting conversation with some executives at Netflix recently. I was trying my best to get a little bit on the Sussexes.

    “All that was said to me was ‘oh man, you don’t even know the half of what they’re working on. They are aiming so high’.

    “So I think the one thing that may surprise us at one point – and I don’t know when this will be – and this is just my own guess really… I think this is when we’re going to hear some sort of movie announcement.”

    HARRY AND MEGHAN’S POPULARITY WITH BRITS PLUNGES TO RECORD LOW, DAMNING POLL REVEALS

    According to a YouGov survey, only 26 per cent of Brits “favour” Meghan while 65 per cent dislike her, bringing her net approval rating to -39 per cent.

    For Harry, just 34 per cent say they like him compared to 59 per cent who don’t, taking the prince’s net favourability rating to -25 per cent.

    Harry’s rating has tumbled 25 points since April, while Meghan’s fell nine points during the same span of time.

    Pensioners were the harshest, with just 13 to 18 per cent of over 65s saying they approved of the couple.

    But Harry and Meghan can rejoice in one fact: that Prince Andrew has by far the lowest approval rating of any royal in the survey.

    The scenes are part of the third Lifetime TV movie; Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace, and sees British actor Jordan Dean and American actress Sydney Morton take over the roles of Harry and Meghan.

    The brothers are seen arguing in the gardens of Kensington Palace, with William telling his younger sibling: "What causes problems isn't colour, it's culture. Meghan an American. She acts more like a celebrity than a Royal."

    But Harry furiously replies: "You need to bloody well make a statement with me decrying racism.  

    "As future King, you need to push on this horrific bullying."

    PRINCE ANDREW HAS LUNCH WITH QUEEN AFTER FLEEING TO BALMORAL TO AVOID BEING SERVED SEX ASSAULT PAPERS

    Prince Andrew held lunchtime talks with the Queen yesterday after travelling 500 miles to avoid a sex abuse lawsuit.

    The Duke of York, 61, spent 90 minutes with his mum at a fishing lodge on her private Balmoral estate.

    There have been “multiple attempts” to serve him with papers from paedo Jeffrey Epstein’s former sex slave Virginia Giuffre.

    Yesterday, the Duke arrived at the secluded forest six miles from Balmoral Castle supported by security shortly before 1pm.

    Her Majesty was seen an hour and a half later leaving the lodge, which was owned by the Queen Mum.

    Andrew, often described as the Queen’s favourite son, was not seen departing. A source said: “He was nowhere to be seen. His driver then left alone in his Range Rover.

    “He must have gone out via the back door because he had been made aware of a photographer.

    "The Queen looked very relaxed and wasn’t concerned about having her picture taken. Clearly, Andrew is far more eager to avoid the spotlight.”

    MEG AND HARRY HAVEN’T ATTENDED A ROYAL XMAS IN TWO YEARS

    The Sussexes did not attend Christmas last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

    And in 2019, they spent Christmas in Canada instead of with the Royal Family.   

    Senior staff are said to be shocked by the couple’s interest to spend Christmas with the Queen, months after the couple blasted the Royal Family in an interview with Oprah Winfrey. 

    Harry has recently made “olive branch” calls to his family as he and Meghan hope to have a christening for their four-month-old daughter possibly at Windsor Castle.

    QUEEN’S ‘FAVOURITE GRANDKID IS LOUISE – NOT WILL OR HARRY’ SAYS EXPERT

    The 17-year-old daughter of Prince Edward and wife Sophie, Countess of Wessex, is said to be “adored” by the 95-year-old monarch. 

    Royal author Phil Dampier told Fabulous: “Lady Louise is definitely a favourite of the Queen and I can see her having an important role in the royal family in the future.

    “Her Majesty sees a lot of Edward and Sophie and their children at Windsor Castle as they live nearby at Bagshot Park.

    “The Queen is very close to her mother Sophie and of course there has always been a bond between them because Sophie nearly died giving birth and Louise has had her eye condition to cope with.

    “But she has grown into a lovely and intelligent young woman and the Queen adores her.”

    Phil said that Her Majesty may even be closer to Lady Louise than she is to William, Harry, Eugenie and Beatrice.

    17 DODGY CLAIMS PIERS MORGAN BLASTED MEGHAN MARKLE FOR TELLING OPRAH

    Piers Morgan has launched a atinging attack on Meghan Markle, claiming the allegations made to Oprah Winfrey were untrue.

    The GMB host discredited the following 17 claims made by the Duke and Duchess

    • Security was taken away – Meghan said security was removed from her, Harry and Archie, despite fears for their safety.
    • Press team didn’t defend her
    • Real wedding took place earlier – This claim has since been proved not to have happened.

    • Silent or silenced? – In reality, she went on 73 public appearances as a working royal… even famously, she gave a tearful interview to Tom Bradby for ITN when in South Africa.

    THE BIZARRE ROYAL FAMILY TRADITION GIVEN THE BOOT BY PRINCE PHILLIP

    According to Royal expert Richard Jobson, Prince Phillip “cancelled” a “ridiculous” royal family tradition after he found out where it came from.

    The no-nonsense Duke apparently grew increasingly irritated by what he deemed to be “outdated” rules and traditions and therefore banned a tradition that came from Queen Victoria herself.

    She would always order a bottle of whiskey of she had a cold. It became the case that a bottle would always appear at the monarch’s bedside.

    Mr Jobson said: “[Philip] was determined to modernise things inside the Palace.

    “He was the person that brought the television cameras into the coronation ceremony. He was the person that really wanted to conduct the first TV interviews, and did so.

    “He was a great believer in science and technology. So he was someone who really did want to change the way things were done.”

    Mr Jobson added: “He found some of the things completely ridiculous and outdated.

    “The Queen had to sort of temper that, that enthusiasm to change things.”

    EXPLAINED: WHAT WILL HARRY’S BOOK BE LIKE AND WHEN IS IT BEING RELEASED?

    A blurb from the publisher Penguin Random House reads: “In an intimate and heartfelt memoir from one of the most fascinating and influential global figures of our time, Prince Harry will share, for the very first time, the definitive account of the experiences, adventures, losses, and life lessons that have helped shape him.”

    Promising “an honest and captivating personal portrait” the book will detail Harry’s life as a member of the Royal Family, his relationship with wife Meghan Markle, Megxit and raising his children.

    It is set to be released next year – as the Queen celebrates her Platinum Jubilee.
