    Prince William was initially wary of Prince Harry releasing a rare statement about then-girlfriend Meghan Markle. The claim was made by bestselling author Christopher Andersen in his new book titled "Brothers and Wives: Inside the Private Lives of William, Kate, Harry, and Meghan." In it, Andersen described how William, who is second in line to the throne, was hesitant about his younger brother telling the press to back off in 2016 when his relationship with the American actress became public. In it, the 37-year-old said he was worried about the star’s safety since she has been subjected to a "wave of abuse and harassment." "It’s interesting to see the differences between the way William and Harry handle the press," Andersen told Fox News. "Harry was the one who went to William during his six-week breakup with Kate Middleton [before they married] and said, ‘What are you doing? Are you crazy? Go back.’ And he did. It took 10 years, but Kate landed her prince and they are a great match." PRINCE WILLIAM HASN’T RETURNED PRINCE HARRY’S PHONE CALLS FOR MONTHS,...
    The Duke of Cambridge has teamed up with tech giant Apple to appear in a new 'audio walking experience', sharing his favourite memories and songs while talking a stroll in the Norfolk countryside.  Listeners are able to immerse themselves in walks featured in the series, hearing the footsteps of the narrator and the sounds around them as they take the audience on a journey through locations important to them. The future king was recorded as he toured his grandmother's 20,000 acre Sandringham Estate in Norfolk, starting at the Queen's home, Sandringham House, and then took in St Mary Magdalene Church, where the royals celebrate Christmas each year, before ending up at Anmer Hall, his and Kate's family home.  Pictures of the host - who have previously included singer Dolly Parton, actress Jane Fonda, boxer Anthony Joshua and model Naomi Campbell - also pop up at points along the route.   Prince William (pictured) will appear on a special festive episode of Time to Walk on Monday 6th December, encouraging people to take some time out and walk for their mental health over...
    DONALD Trump has accused Meghan Markle of “disrespecting the Queen” and “horribly” manipulating Prince Harry. The former President’s criticism came in a new interview with Nigel Farage, in which he alleges the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have “hurt” the Royal family. 2Donald Trump was speaking to Nigel Farage Trump has in the past been critical of Meghan and earlier this year said he would consider running for President again amid rumours she was planning a bid for the White House. During the interview, Trump also spoke of his admiration for the Queen, which he says stems from his Scottish mother, and how that’s clouded his view of Meghan. He once again took aim at the Duchess, telling the former UKIP leader: “I think she’s been very disrespectful to the Queen, who’s such a great woman, such a great person, a historic person. “I think she’s very disrespectful to the Royal Family and most importantly to the Queen. “I think Harry’s been used and been used terribly. I think it’s ruined his relationship with his family, and it hurts the...
    This was never going to be the ideal week for Prince Charles to learn from a new book that he was being accused of questioning the future skin colour of Prince Harry and Meghan’s children. He was, after all, arriving in Barbados representing the Queen at a momentous ceremony to mark the transition of the Caribbean island to a republic and where issues of race and identity politics are key. Whether the claim by American author Christopher Andersen – made with his usual audacious assertions of impeccable sources – is true, is quite another matter. It earned the immediate scorn of royal officials, with one describing it as ‘fiction’. And it is certainly convenient that the book, Brothers And Wives: Inside The Private Lives Of William, Kate, Harry And Meghan, is being published in the US safely out of reach of the prince’s lawyers. Andersen has a track record of writing books about the royals that rely on the most astonishingly intimate – some would say contentious – information. In a 2001 book called Diana’s Boys, he claimed that William...
    Rihanna has 'arrived in Barbados for the inauguration of its first president', according to local media reports. The singer, 33, who was born on the Caribbean island and appointed Ambassador Extraordinary & Plenipotentiary by her home country's government in 2018, is reportedly going to be among the dignitaries attending Tuesday's ceremony. Barbados will become the world's newest republic as it removes the Queen as head of state after 55 years and swears in its first president, Governor-General Dame Sandra Mason. Local media Kevz Politics tweeted this evening: 'Multiple media reports indicate that Ambassador Robyn @rihanna Fenty has landed in Barbados and is listed among dignitaries to be present tonight for the Inauguration of Barbados' first President Dame Sandra Mason.'

    The Royal Family has not ruled out taking action against the BBC over the final instalment of its inflammatory documentary series probing their relations with the media. Lawyers will be carefully watching tonight’s second instalment of The Princes and The Press to decide if the broadcaster flouted rules regarding accuracy and impartiality as well as giving them a fair right of reply. The first programme has already accused the royal households of actively briefing against Harry and Meghan, possibly with the blessing of senior royals.

    If you love The Daily Beast’s royal coverage, then we hope you’ll enjoy The Royalist, a members-only series for Beast Inside. Become a member to get it in your inbox on Sunday. “Megxit” no more Part two of the controversial BBC documentary The Princes and the Press screens on Monday, and the Sunday Telegraph reports the episode will be entitled, “Sussexit,” a possible cause for celebration for Prince Harry who has described the term “Megxit” as misogynistic, and said it was created by a troll before being picked up more broadly.
    A controversial royal documentary has opted not to use the word 'Megxit' airing in tomorrow's episode, after the term was previously criticised by Prince Harry.  The word could have appeared in the second episode of BBC Two's The Princes and The Press, which is due to air tomorrow. Instead, the title of the episode has been named 'Sussexit', The Telegraph reports, and the documentary will explore claims about behind-the-scenes palace briefings and an alleged lack of support received by the Duke and Duchess.  Prince Harry stated: 'Maybe people know this and maybe they don't, but the term  Megxit was or is a mysognistic term, and it was created by a troll, amplified by royal correspondents and it grew and grew and grew into mainstream media.'

    Prince Andrew worked secretly behind the scenes to help a controversial multi-millionaire open a bank for the super-rich in Monaco, The Mail on Sunday can reveal. Bombshell emails leaked to this newspaper reveal how the Duke of York contacted the office of Albert II, the sovereign Prince of Monaco, on behalf of his financier friend David Rowland and asked for information about how to open a new bank in the principality. The Duke, who was the UK's taxpayer-funded trade envoy at the time, then offered to provide further help to the Rowland family ahead of a planned meeting with Prince Albert. The revelation comes after reports that Mr Rowland, one of the Tory Party's top donors, paid off a £1.5 million loan in December 2017 given to Andrew by Banque Havilland, a Luxembourg-based bank controlled by the Rowland family.

    Prince Charles' goddaughter India Hicks, 54, has admitted she told her black adopted son to ditch the jeans and hoodies and 'start dressing differently' when travelling with her white children after he was 'always taken to one side'. The granddaughter of Earl Mountbatten, 54, who was a bridesmaid at the wedding of Lady Diana Spencer and the Prince of Wales, spoke to Sheerluxe, an online lifestyle magazine, about her Bahamian adopted son Wesley Cleare, 25, and the Black Lives Matter movement. She said she noticed that when her sons used to travel to the US, for example, 'it was always Wesley who was taken to one side'. 'After a while, we recommended Wes start dressing differently – travelling in chinos and a blazer as opposed to jeans and a hoodie seemed to help, if you can believe it. It’s very sad when you think about it,' she admitted. Describing him as a 'fixture' in the family the mother-of-five explained that she adopted Wesley from the Bahamas when he was 12-years-old after his birth mother died of breast cancer.  India has become more aware of how...

Royal insiders denied William and Harry had been embroiled in a briefing war, ahead of a programme examining the brothers’ troubled relationship with the media.

    The Prince of Wales is flying ‘five or six dozen bottles’ of Holy water taken from the River Jordan back to the UK for royal baptisms - which could include that of Lilibet, the grand-daughter he has never met. The heir to the throne, 73 and his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, 74, were earlier today afforded the honour of dipping their fingers in the water where Jesus was baptised as they embarked on a whirlwind visit of the Middle East. Now it can be revealed that Charles will be taking home with him on the return flight later this week a consignment of vials full of water to be used for future royal christenings.

    AMID the sombre reflection for the Fallen, Britain’s Armed Forces sent a get well message to the Queen. As they gathered in Whitehall waiting for the traditional two-minute silence at 11am, whispered words spread among the 10,000 who fought for Queen and country that their sovereign was too ill to attend this year. 6Britain's Armed Forces have wished the Queen well following her absence yesterdayCredit: Times Newspapers Ltd So, after Prince Charles and other members of the Royal Family had laid their wreaths for the nation’s glorious dead, the huge crowd sang God Save the Queen louder and with more gusto than ever before. World War Two radar operator Leonard Hobbs, 97, said: “It was as if they were singing for the Queen to get better. She has been a good Queen and I hope she gets better soon.” Former Warrant Officer Colin Veal, 63, who served in Northern Ireland, the Gulf, Bosnia and Afghanistan, said: “God Save the Queen was all the more poignant because she wasn’t there.

    Prince Albert of Monaco has revealed he was 'furious' about the mother of his love child giving a rare interview to press about his parenting.  Nicole Coste, 49, an Air France air hostess turned fashion designer, gave birth to Alexandre Grimaldi-Coste in August 2003, two years before Albert, then heir to the Monegasque throne, started dating Princess Charlene.  Nicole and Albert had dated for five years and the Togo-born beauty had made public appearances with her royal beau and met his father, Rainier III.  But Alexandre's existence was only made public in May 2005 when Nicole gave an explosive tell-all interview to French magazine Paris Match, claiming her then two-year-old son was Albert's. Two months later, shortly before he was enthroned, Albert confirmed he had fathered Alexandre. The following year he also admitted he had a daughter Jazmin Grimaldi, now 29, born to American Tamara Rotolo in 1992. He shares two legitimate children, twins Jacques and Gabriella, six, with his wife Charlene.   In the almost two decades since the 2005 interview, Nicole has raised Alexandre and his older half-brothers in Geneva,...
    Lawyers for Prince Andrew's accuser will seek a deposition from him as part of her sex assault lawsuit against him, a hearing heard today. Attorneys for Virginia Roberts, now known as Virginia Giuffre, will request for the Duke of York to give testimony under oath and could do so 'relatively promptly'. Mrs Giuffre's lawyer David Boies said that he would seek to depose between eight and 12 people while the Duke's lawyers wanted to question a similar number. During a 10-minute hearing before a federal court in New York, Mr Boies said that the case was 'moving along' after delays caused by the Duke refusing to accept service of the legal paperwork. The judge set a tentative trial date of next September or October meaning that it will cast a shadow over The Queen's Platinum Jubilee, which will take place in June 2022 marking 70 years since she acceded to the British throne.  Prince Andrew is pictured at the Royal Chapel of All Saints in Windsor on April 11 this year Prince Andrew, Virginia Roberts, then 17, and Ghislaine Maxwell pictured...

    Diana: The Musical has returned to Broadway to continue its previews after being interrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020. The controversial production resumed yesterday ahead of its opening night on November 17 at the Longacre Theatre. However, while in-person audiences had yet to witness the stage show, which centres around the love triangle between the Princess of Wales, Prince Charles and Camilla, a filmed version premiered on Netflix last month to scathing reviews and social media verdicts published on both sides of the Atlantic. The new musical was roundly slammed by critics and viewers over its 'hysterically awful' lyrics and 'absurdly over the top' production - and any hope that the televised version would drum up interest - and ticket sales - for the show was dealt a serious blow.  The Evening Standard, The Times and the Chicago Tribune gave Diana: The Musical damning one-star reviews, while viewers on social media mocked the ridiculous songs - including a number where paparazzi sing 'better than a Guinness, better than a w**k/snap a few pics, it’s money in the bank'.

    Greta Thunberg criticized world leaders for not acting on so-called “climate change” in a tirade to fellow COP26 protesters on Monday. The Daily Mail reported: Government representatives have gathered in Glasgow to discuss green issues this week, with Prime Minister Boris Johnson using his opening address to compare the situation to James Bond trying to diffuse a ‘doomsday device’. US President Joe Biden, Germany’s Angela Merkel and President Emmanuel Macron of France are among those gathering at the event in an attempt to foster international cooperation on climate change. While speaking at a protest in Festival Park on the first day of the summit, Thunberg said heads of government were not doing everything they could to save the planet. “No more blah blah blah, no more whatever the f*** they are doing inside there,” she said. “Inside Cop, there are just politicians and people in power pretending to take our future seriously, pretending to take the present seriously. Change is not going to come from inside there, that is not leadership – this is leadership… We say no more blah blah blah, no...

The 95-year-old monarch acknowledged that “none of us will live forever”. But she went on: “We are doing this not for ourselves but for our children and our children’s children, and those who will follow in their footsteps.” She paid tribute to her “dear late husband” Prince Philip, who warned of the climate change danger more than 50 years ago. She recalled him telling an academic gathering in 1969: “If we fail to cope with this challenge, all the other problems will pale into insignificance. She also spoke of her pride that his environmental passion had been taken up by her...

    Prince Andrew has today been seen breaking cover after his lawyers submitted a blistering 36-page motion to dismiss a US civil case against him. The royal, 61, has been spotted driving a Range Rover near Windsor Castle while wearing a maroon coloured jumper seemingly emblazoned with the crest of the Grenadier Guards.  Earlier this year the Duke of York retained his honorary role as colonel of the elite infantry unit, despite stepping back from front line royal duties amid sexual assault accusations. It comes after his legal team filed a motion to dismiss a US civil case lodged against him by Virginia Giuffre. The 38-year-old, previously known by her maiden named Roberts, claims she was sex trafficked to Prince Andrew on three occasions by convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein, the first time when she was 17.  The Duke has consistently and vehemently denied her claims.  The royal has been spotted driving near Windsor Castle in a Range Rover while wearing a maroon coloured jumper, which appears to be emblazoned with the crest of the Grenadier Guards Giuffre (right with Andrew), one of...
    Prince Andrew's legal team have challenged his accuser over her claims she was abused by exposing her 'sex kitten' past and accusing her of procuring 'slutty girls' for Jeffrey Epstein, legal papers show. The Duke of York's lawyers filed a blistering 36-page motion to dismiss the US civil suit brought by Virginia Giuffre in which she accuses the Royal of rape. The 38-year-old, previously known by her maiden named Roberts, claims she was sex trafficked to Andrew on three occasions by convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein, the first time when she was 17 and below the legal age of consent under New York law. The 61-year-old Duke has consistently and vehemently denied her claims. In court documents filed on Friday night, Andrew's US legal team called Ms Giuffre's lawsuit 'frivolous', saying: 'She has initiated this baseless lawsuit against Prince Andrew to achieve another payday at his expense.' They said she had profited from her association with Jeffrey Epstein, the convicted sex offender, for years and was willing to 'milk the publicity' for all she could but had not kept her stories...
    PALACE aides are facing a right royal headache - because Prince Harry and Prince Andrew are still slated for one of the family's most important roles.

    For sale: an imposing 16th-century villa in one of Rome’s poshest neighbourhoods covering more than 30,000 sq ft over six floors, plus two acres of formal gardens. This stunning property — a former hunting lodge on a hilltop site once occupied by Julius Caesar’s palace — has what estate agents might call bags of potential. But it is also in need of serious renovation: the basic cost of sorting it out is estimated at 11 million euros (£9.3 million). One thing the lucky buyer certainly won’t be doing, however, is getting decorators in to re-paint the ceilings. For Villa Aurora happens to boast the only surviving ceiling fresco by Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio.

    Royal weddings are always an occasion for pomp and ceremony. But the nuptials between Prince Philippos of Greece and billionaire's daughter Nina Flohr this weekend are tipped to be particularly lavish, even by royal standards.   Philippos, 35, godson of Princess Diana and the Duke of Edinburgh, will exchange vows with Nina, daughter of Swiss businessman Thomas Flohr, on Saturday at the Metropolitan Cathedral of Athens, according to Hola!. It will be the third wedding for the couple, who first wed last December in a small civil ceremony in St Moritz, Switzerland, followed by a high society springtime celebration in Cambridgeshire.  While both were intimate affairs - indeed there were just the two fathers as witnesses at the first - this third wedding has all the makings of a full-blown extravaganza.

    The United Nations climate circus is coming to the United Kingdom and no one, not even green-succubus-bewitched Prime Minister Boris Johnson, has been shilling harder for the upcoming COP26 shenanigans than the Royal Family. Not a day goes by without the uncritical mainstream media running yet another Climate Industrial Complex propaganda piece about a member of the Royal Family saying or doing something ‘green’ in the run-up to COP26. Today, yet again, it’s Prince Charles’s turn. The royal Climate Loon, we learn from another Daily Mail puff piece, has been busily indoctrinating his young grandson George with the usual eco-bollox. Prince Charles has revealed told how his grandson Prince George is learning about climate change as he introduced a documentary ahead of Cop26. The Prince of Wales, 72, appeared in the new The Sky Kids Original documentary Cop26: In Your Hands, and explained his eldest grandson, eight, has been learning global warming is causing ‘the big storms, and floods, the droughts, fires and food shortages’ around the world. During the clip, Charles added: ‘When I was his age, people had no...

    The Kenyan safari lodge where Princess Elizabeth became Queen has been forced to close after nearly 90 years of welcoming royalty. Kenya's oldest safari lodge, Treetops - an elaborate treehouse on the edge of a watering hole in Aberdare National Park - was where the monarch famously 'went up the tree a Princess and came down a Queen.' The property was rebuilt after being burned down by guerillas a few years later, but when the Queen and Prince Philip stayed, their accommodation was a comfortable three-bedroom shack, with a small servants quarter, built in the upper branches of a giant fig tree.  Recreated at a game reserve in Cape Town, South Africa for series one of Netflix's The Crown, a nail-biting scene in episode two, sees Claire Foy, who portrayed Queen Elizabeth, almost killed by charging elephants, but a brave Prince Philip distracts one before chasing the enraged animal off.  The lodge is one of several casualties of the pandemic in Kenya where tourist revenue has fallen by 90 per cent due to travel restrictions, according to The Kenya Wildlife Service.  The Kenyan...
    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will not christen their daughter Lilibet in the UK and are likely to opt for a ceremony in California, royal sources have claimed.     The Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their second child Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, who was born in Santa Barbara, California, on June 4 this year.   It had previously been suggested the couple, who named the four-month-old after the Queen's childhood nickname, would christen their child at Windsor Castle in front of the monarch - who is yet to meet her great granddaughter. However sources have now revealed that a christening in the UK was 'highly unlikely' and the pair will instead opt to christen their daughter at the Episcopal Church of the US.  The decision will now raise questions as to when the Queen will ever get to meet the great granddaughter named after her face to face.  It also comes just days after it was revealed that Prince Harry would not be returning to Britain next week to join his brother Prince William at a party to honour their late mother.   Prince Harry and Meghan...

    Prince William has joined forces with former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg to warn against 'environmental devastation' and urge 'decisive action' to tackle climate change. The Duke of Cambridge, 39, has co-authored a piece with the billionaire US politician, 79, for USA Today.  In the piece, he compared the current fight against climate change to the 1960s Space Race, writing: 'This time the question isn’t whether we can reach the moon. It’s whether we can save the Earth'.    'An hour of change and challenge is upon us again, but this time the question isn’t whether we can reach the moon. It’s whether we can save the Earth.'

    The close ties between royalty and the security services are the subject of a compelling new book serialised in the Mail this week.  Yesterday, we revealed how Charles and Diana evaded their minders to pursue illicit affairs.  Today, we describe how the Soviets tried to get their hooks into Prince Philip and the Royal Family... When the handsome and debonair Prince Philip of Denmark and Greece became a suitor for the young Princess Elizabeth, her father, King George VI, let loose the spies on him, ordering Special Branch to prepare a secret dossier on his background, loyalty and politics.  Were there any skeletons in his cupboard to make marriage a risk? Discreet surveillance took place, providing the King with an insight into his putative son-in-law's habits and personal life — his messy rooms, coarse language and late-night drinking. Meanwhile, Jock Colville, the Princess's private secretary, apparently warned George that Philip was 'unlikely to be faithful'.  Tommy Lascelles, the King's own private secretary, agreed, adding that Philip was 'rough' and 'uneducated'. A more serious impediment was the detail on Philip's three...
    President Joe Biden's National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan will travel to Saudi Arabia Monday to meet with Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman to press for a ceasefire in Yemen.  Sullivan will be the highest-ranking Biden official to visit the kingdom, as Biden has taken a much different approach to dealing with Saudi Arabia as his predecessor.       While former President Donald Trump bestowed the Saudis with the distinction of the first county he visited as president, President Joe Biden started his relationship with the kingdom by releasing a CIA report that held the crown prince responsible for approving the murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi.   More recently, Biden green-lit the release of documents pertaining to the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks, which victims' family members hope will help with their ongoing lawsuit against Saudi Arabia - the country where 15 of the 19 hijackers were from.  President Joe Biden's National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan is expected to travel to Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt next week. He'll need to smooth over relations with the Saudis  Biden released a CIA report...
