Meghan Markle latest news – Meg’s father will ‘sue childish Prince Harry & Duchess’ in order to see his grandchildren

PRINCE Harry and Meghan are at risk of 'diluting their brand' after they have signed a new deal.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have forged a number of lucrative deals since stepping down from royal life, including multimillion-dollar partnerships with Netflix, Spotify and Apple.

Their most recent venture, "impact partners" and investors at sustainable investing firm Ethic.

However, Palace Confidential host Jo Elvin has suggested the pair might "deplete their value" by "spreading themselves around so much".

Jo Elvin asked: "So they seem good at attracting attention to these companies.

"But the more they spread it around, doesn't that deplete their value for these companies?"

  • Couples want their own Archie

    Archie came into the top 10 boys’ name for the first time at number nine, pushing out the name Charlie, which has held a spot in the top 10 since 2005, the Office of National Statistics (ONS) says.

    The name Archie, appears to have grown popular due to its royal links, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle naming their first-born son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, back in May 2019.

    The name Harry took eighth place respectively and has been in the top 10 list for more than 20 years.

    George took second place in the list of names, and has been a consistently popular name since 2013, when Prince George was born.

  • Queen to cut back commitments over winter 

    THE Queen will cut back her commitments over the winter as she struggles with getting about.

    Courtiers will ensure she walks less at public engagements and avoids steps and cobbles. Her car will also pull up closer to venues.

    It comes after it was reported the Queen, 95, would give up her evening Martini cocktail on the advice of doctors and drink alcohol only on special occasions.

    The Queen — who has appeared in public twice this week with a walking stick — was also planning to host a smaller Christmas gathering this year, sources said.

    It means Prince Harry and his family would be unlikely to join her at Sandringham in Norfolk.

  • What is the Queen’s Gold State Coach?

    Perhaps the most exclusive vehicle in the world – and certainly one of the oldest still in use – is the Gold State Coach. 

    Commissioned in 1760 during the reign of King George III, it gets wheeled out only occasionally.

    It’s too large and cumbersome to be of more frequent use. At 7.3m long and 3.7m high, it’s as big as a truck. 

    It’s also apparently very uncomfortable thanks to its crude leather suspension. The Queen has stated that she dislikes riding in it. 

    Its wheels were only rubberised by King George VI, almost two centuries after it was built. 

  • Drop out Duke

    MEGHAN Markle's dad today slammed "shameful" Prince Harry for "abandoning" the Queen, the Army and the British people.

    The 77-year-old, who has not spoken to Harry in years, said his son-in-law had "abandoned everyone".

    He also told Good Morning Britain Harry is likely to insult the Queen in his forthcoming book, which he believes is "just for money".

  • Wills and Kate want Charlotte & Louis ‘to have own careers'

    CONSIDERING how they call Kensington Palace home and The Queen grandma, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis aren't just your ordinary kids.

    But despite all the luxuries that come with growing up Royal, Prince William and Kate Middleton are eager to give their three children as normal an upbringing as possible.

    As their eldest son George will one day become King, it's been reported that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge want Charlotte and Louis to pursue their own careers independent of the Royal Family.

    Fronting The Telegraph's Royal Insight series, royal expert Camilla Tominey said William and Kate know that George "has his destiny planned out".

    However, the couple are eager to ensure they "get the balance right" with their two youngest children.

    Instead of working as full-time royals, the expert suggested Charlotte and Louis may be encouraged to forge a career path like Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice have.

    She claimed: "[William and Kate] don't want history to repeat itself and Prince Louis seem like a royal hanger-on and go down the Duke of York path."

  • Jesy Nelson is trying to ‘save herself like Prince Harry’, says expert

    They have constantly described themselves as “sisters” and “best friends”, but the Little Mix rift appears to be widening.

    The three remaining band members unfollowed Jesy Nelson on Instagram this week – after she launched solo single Boyz – and even Perrie Edwards’ dog has snubbed her on social media.

    Body language expert Judi James says Jesy, 30, is taking a leaf out of Prince Harry’s book and distancing herself from her past life to “save” herself.

    Meanwhile there are subtle signs that the remaining trio of Leigh-Anne, Perrie and Jade Thirlwall are “concerned and anxious” about the split.

    “Part of the Little Mix appeal for the fans has always been the sense of unity and sisterhood between the four women who are apparently enjoying successful, enviable lifestyles,” she tells The Sun.

  • Queen ‘politely but firmly’ declined ‘Oldie Award’

    The Queen may be 95 but she has turned down the Oldie of the Year trophy because she feels she does not meet the criteria, believing “you are only as old as you feel”.

    The monarch “politely but firmly” declined the award, but sent a message with her “warmest best wishes”.

    Author and broadcaster Gyles Brandreth, chairman of the awards, wrote to the Queen’s private secretary, Sir Edward Young, to ask if she would accept the main Oldie of the Year accolade.

    But in a letter published in the November issue of the magazine, her assistant private secretary, Tom Laing-Baker, wrote: “Her Majesty believes you are as old as you feel, as such The Queen does not believe she meets the relevant criteria to be able to accept, and hopes you will find a more worthy recipient.”

    The Queen, who is just five years away from her 100th birthday, is the nation’s longest reigning monarch and is due to celebrate her Platinum Jubilee – 70 years on the throne – next year.

    PRINCE Andrew is set to argue the sexual abuse case against him is invalid as his accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre made a settlement with paedo financier Jeffrey Epstein referencing “royalty”, it was claimed today.

    Ms Guiffre, 38, struck a deal with convicted sex offender Epstein in 2009 for undisclosed damages after accusing him of sexual abuse and exploitation.

    The confidential agreement, which has remained sealed, said that Ms Guiffre would not take any more action against Epstein or his accusers.

  • Set up for a fall

    Royal author Penny Junor said: “Life is going to be very difficult for Meghan and Harry if they keep up this high profile. Ethical banking seems asking for trouble, setting themselves up for a fall.”

    Harry, 37, and Meghan, 40, were announced on Tuesday as investors in Ethic, which has £950million under management.

    The company, co-founded by former British private schoolboy Jay Lipman, 33, said it invites ­clients to create their own port­folios that reflect their “unique ­values and financial priorities”.

    It claims to help investors screen companies on criteria like racial justice, climate change and workplace standards, such as gender equality and fair pay.

  • ‘How to get ahead’

    MEGHAN Markle preached about “avoiding drama”, never settling and “wiggling around in a pencil skirt” in an unearthed interview about how to get ahead.

    When she was starring in hit TV show Suits, Meghan, who played the character of Rachel Zane, revealed her top tips for being a “girl boss”.

    In 2015, before she met Prince Harry, Meghan spoke to InStyle, and said: “I think the biggest part of being a girl boss in the office, at home, or anywhere you go is just knowing your value.

    “It’s important to flex your intellectual prowess, even if you’re wiggling around in a pencil skirt.”

    She also advised to dress for the “part you want, not the part you have.”

  • Meghan and Harry ‘know ZERO about finance’

    MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry have been slammed for their new banking job because they “know ZERO” about finance, an expert says.

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex yesterday revealed they had signed up to become “impact partners” and investors at sustainable investing firm Ethic.

    It is unclear how much expertise is required for the partnership, which is the latest in a series of lucrative deals for Meghan and Harry.

    But Royal biographer Angela Levin says the couple are “not financiers” and they “know zero”.

    She told GB News: “They want to come back [to the UK] every now and again and either film what they’re doing or have grievances to talk about when they come back home, but it will keep them up as royals. The longer they’re away and don’t come to the UK, interest in them will diminish because they haven’t got up-to-date understanding of what’s going on.

    “They’re quite clever with that – they want to keep one finger on the Royal Family in the UK just so they can be attached to companies they know nothing about and can’t give them anything – they’re not financiers, they know zero – but their names will help them do it and earn pots of money.”

  • Harry & Meghan Markle could become ‘world’s richest personal brand’

    PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle’s new “Brand Sussex” is now worth an estimated £250million and they could become the ‘world’s richest personal brand’, claims a expert.

    Just this week, it was reported how they have taken a new job in banking, after signing multimillion-dollar partnerships with Netflix, Spotify and Apple.

    Andrew Bloch, branding expert and founder of Frank PR, told Fabulous: “Since moving to California and stepping down as working royals, Harry and Meghan have secured a number of lucrative business deals and personal endorsements which have seen their personal wealth rocket.

    “I would estimate their combined net worth is circa £250million.

    “They are really making the most of their newfound status, and their potential to become the world’s richest personal brand looks imminently achievable.

    “Them becoming a billion dollar brand is certainly not out of the question. Sky is limitless.”

  • Queen 'gives up booze ahead of Platinum Jubilee'

    The 95-year-old decided to stop drinking alcohol ahead of her Platinum Jubilee next year, royal sources confirmed yesterday.

    Her husband, Prince Philip, was reported to have mixed her a gin and martini each evening. The Queen was also a big fan of a zaza cocktail – otherwise known as a gin and Dubonnet.

    But she will now drink just sparkling water or tomato juice, with a royal source saying: “It was a personal decision.”

    Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief of Majesty Magazine, said: “She has never been a heavy drinker as she just had the odd cocktail. She is a creature of habit but I don’t think she will miss it. It is a sensible decision.”

  • Prince Harry pleads ‘don’t pillage’ his African sanctuary for oil 

    PRINCE Harry has begged mining firms to stop “pillaging” his African “sanctuary” for oil as he called on the world to “stand with us”.

    The Duke of Sussex said the Okavango watershed in southern Africa is “at risk” due to “corporate oil drilling” in a rare op-ed for the Washington Post.

    He said the area is a vital water source for nearby farmers and fisherman in Angola, Bolivia and Botswana – but stressed it could be in danger.

    The Prince – who was just unveiled as an impact partner for “ethical” investment group Ethic – said he and Meghan “found sanctuary and inspiration in the Okavango”.

    Harry whisked the then future-Duchess of Sussex away to the Meno A Kwena safari camp in August 2017 in the heart of Botswana on one of their early dates.

    Harry writes: “The Okavango River Basin is under siege by ReconAfrica, a Canadian oil and gas company that has been granted licenses for exploratory drilling in an area of Namibia and Botswana larger than some European countries. 

    “We believe this would pillage the ecosystem for potential profit.

    “Some things in life are best left undisturbed to carry out their purpose as a natural benefit. This is one of them.

    Speaking to Good Morning Britain from his home in Mexico, Mr Markle said his daughter has "pretty much disowned both sides of her family".

    And he believes his relationship with her half siblings - Thomas Markle Jr, 55, and Samantha Markle, 56 - was part of the reason.

    He said: "She thought I was giving too much attention to her brother and sister.

    "She wanted me to stop talking to them and I couldn’t."

    The “ethical” investment group backed by Prince Harry and his wife Meghan has put tens of millions into chemical, pharma and oil companies.

    New York-based Ethic, which unveiled the Sussexes as impact partners, has also poured cash into rich investment banks.

    Paperwork filed in the US shows it invested around £1.1million in chemical firm Corteva Inc.

    Ethic has also invested in one of America’s largest crude oil producers and a firm accused of pricing UK patients out of a ­cystic fibrosis drug, filings show.
