    The Queen has told her family she is feeling much better and looking forward to hosting the rest of the royals at Sandringham this Christmas, according to reports. Concerns over the monarch's health have grown recently after she cancelled a number of engagements, which included missing the Remembrance Sunday ceremony for the first time in 22 years due to a back injury. Buckingham Palace said she made the decision not to attend the service at the Cenotaph in London 'with great regret' and was 'disappointed' to miss the event.  The Queen has told her family she is feeling much better and looking forward to hosting the rest of the royals at Sandringham this Christmas, according to reports She had earlier spent a night in hospital for an unconfirmed condition before then being told by doctors to rest at home.  But Prime Minister Boris Johnson then claimed she was 'very well' when he saw her in Windsor a few days after.

    MARKLE’S sparkle is fading fast.  Just 42 months after the world rejoiced as the Duchess of Sussex walked out of Windsor Castle’s chapel into the sunlight as a member of the Royal Family, the American actress has now had to apologise for misleading the British High Court.  3Whatever happens now, Meghan’s reputation in Britain is in freefallCredit: Getty Images - Getty The crash of Meghan’s credibility has been dramatic. Her integrity hangs on a thin thread. There will be many in Britain, not least among the Royal Family, who will smile with relief that the woman who hit them with accusations during the Oprah Winfrey interview is getting a taste of her own medicine. Not least of her many false accusations on Oprah was her claim no one in Buckingham Palace was “willing to protect me” and they forced her to be “silent”.  To me, much of the evidence now suggests Palace officials worked overtime to advise and protect her. The saga of Meghan’s risk of heading towards a downfall has some way to run, but this week saw the...

    Meghan Markle has been ridiculed by a Congressman for using her royal title to lobby U.S. senators, noting that the British royal family had strict rules about not getting involved in politics. The Duchess of Sussex cold-called at least two Republican senators - Susan Collins of Maine and Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia - to plead with them to support paid parental leave. Democrat Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, who gave Markle the senators' personal phone numbers, said that the duchess now wants to be part of a 'working group' to thrash out policy proposals. Jason Smith, a Republican congressman representing Missouri, said Markle was trading off her royal title and 'interfering' in an inappropriate way.   'If she wants to be a royal, she needs to be a royal - she can't have it both ways,' Smith told TMZ.  Meghan Markle, pictured with her husband Prince Harry, has been accused by a congressman of trading on her royal title Jason Smith, a Republican congressman for Missouri, was asked by TMZ for his opinion on Markle's lobbying efforts TMZ...
    Weddings are supposed to be a day of untainted love and joy. But not so for Japan's Princess Mako, who has today renounced her royal title after going against tradition to marry her university sweetheart.  The issue has arisen because her long-term boyfriend Kei Komuro, 30, a lawyer with a New York law firm whom she met at Tokyo's International Christian University almost a decade ago, is a commoner.  By marrying him today, Mako, 30, the eldest daughter of Crown Prince Fumihito and niece of reigning Emperor Naruhito, has chosen love over her title, duties as a royal, and official place within the family. Japan's strict laws of succession forbid women from ascending to the Chrysanthemum Throne and force them to give up their titles if they marry commoners.  The wedding has sent shockwaves through Japan - a country where the royal family face huge pressure to conform to tradition and meet exacting standards of behaviour, with each move intensely scrutinised.   It marks a dramatic, if slow burning, departure for the princess, a graduate of Leicester University who worked at Coventry Museums, who was...
    Tokyo (CNN)It had all the makings of a modern royal fairytale: the marriage of an aspiring lawyer to a real-life princess who was prepared to leave her Tokyo palace for a new life in New York. But since Japan's Princess Mako and Kei Komuro announced their engagement in 2017, their union has been mired in scandal, public disapproval and tabloid frenzy. Some Japanese don't consider the commoner son of a single parent to be worthy of a princess. Their disdain was confirmed last month when he arrived in Japan for their October 26 wedding sporting long hair tied in a ponytail.Tabloids ran photos of 30-year-old Komuro's ponytail from every angle, with some comparing it to a samurai's top knot. On social media, some tweeted support for his new look, while others said it was unsuitable for the groom of a royal bride.A ponytail may not cause a stir in the West, but people in Japan are expected to reflect their status and role through their actions and words. People saw the ponytail as a sign Komuro wasn't conforming to social...
    Princess Margaret refused to speak to Princess Michael of Kent after she joined the royal family, a new documentary has claimed.  Speaking on Channel 5's documentary The Controversial Princess airing Saturday, royal commentator Viscountess Hitchingbrooke claimed Margaret, who died in 2002, didn't speak to her first cousin's wife because she was a Roman Catholic.  Born Baroness Marie-Christine von Reibnitz, Princess Michael of Kent, now 76, tied the knot with Prince Michael in 1978 with the Queen's blessing following the annulment of her first marriage to Thomas Troubridge.  Margaret, was also reportedly 'furious' that a foreign-born divorcee had been allowed to marry into the royal family, particularly after she had been prevented from marrying divorced RAF officer Peter Townsend in 1953. The documentary also claims the Queen's daughter Princess Anne, now 71, deemed Princess Michael of Kent difficult and coined her nickname 'Princess Pushy.'  Princess Margaret, who died in 2002, refused to speak to Princess Michael of Kent because she was a Roman Catholic and a divorcee, a royal commentator claimed in a new royal documentary (pictured: Princess Margaret in 1990 in...

    Meghan Markle has been accused of mocking the Queen and 'showing what she really thinks' of The Firm by a royal expert. Royal biographer Angela Levin questioned the Duchess of Sussex's birthday clip, released yesterday for her 40th, in which the former actress chatted over video call to Hollywood star Melissa McCarthy from her £11million California mansion. The author, who penned Harry: Conversations with the Prince, suggested mother-of-two Meghan was poking fun at Her Majesty, 95, and her tea drinking habits and tradition of 'fancy hat and glove' wearing.

    Meghan Markle is ushering in a new decade as the royal is celebrating her 40th birthday Wednesday. Before marrying Prince Harry, Markle was making headlines as an actress, beginning with a 1995 appearance on "Married… with Children," per IMDb. From there, she made a one-off appearance on "General Hospital," the long-running ABC soap opera that her father, Thomas, worked on. Since then, the star appeared in a number of high-profile television series, including "Suits," which saw her star as Rachel Zane from 2011 until her exit in 2018. While she had a growing career in the years before she joined the royal family, there is no doubt that her last decade has been quite an adventure.

    A ROYAL biographer claims he was told that Meghan Markle “upset” the Royal Family and courtiers by being “cleverer than them.” Author Sean Smith, who penned Meghan Misunderstood, made the sensational claim on Twitter and said the Duchess of Sussex was “disliked” by the royals.  2Meghan Markle 'upset' the Royal Family by being cleverer than them, royal biographer Sean Smith claimedCredit: Getty Sean tweeted: “A columnist being rude about #PrinceHarry's school exams reminded me that when researching #MeghanMisunderstood I was told a reason #Meghan was so disliked by the Royal Family and their courtiers was that whenever she walked into a room, she was the most intelligent person in it.” Oprah Winfrey previously claimed that Meghan was "advised to be half herself" shortly after joining the Royal Family. The talk show queen revealed that the Duchess of Sussex had confided in her in 2018 about the alleged comment on keeping a lower profile as she reacted to the tell-all chat during an interview with CBS.

    Meghan Markle's information on the Royal Family's official website has a mistake in it - since it doesn't mention that she's also mother to newborn daughter Lilibet, as well as two-year-old son Archie. It appears the details about the Duchess of Sussex, 39, who now lives in California with her two children and husband Prince Harry, 36, have yet to be updated on royal.uk.

    Prince Harry is putting the Queen in a 'difficult position' by expecting her to attend his daughter Lilibet's christening, a royal biographer has claimed.   According to royal insiders, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's daughter Lilibet Diana could follow in the footsteps of older brother Archie and be christened in St George's Chapel in Windsor - with the Queen present. A source previously told the Daily Mail that Harry said the couple are 'happy to wait until circumstances allow' while in the UK to unveil a statue of Princess Diana.  But Angela Levin has described Harry's expectation that his grandmother will attend as unreasonable, given she has missed christenings of other royal children in recent years. Prince Harry is putting the Queen (pictured at the Royal Windsor Cup polo match on July 11) in a 'difficult position' by expecting her to attend his daughter Lilibet's christening, a royal biographer has claimed 'That puts her in a very difficult position because she can't say that she is not free for years,' she told TalkRadio TV. 'She didn't go to Louis',...
    The Queen Mother had a strict maxim for royal conduct: 'Never complain, never explain, and rarely be heard speaking in public.' It worked very well for her, ensuring that when she died aged 101, it was as a deeply beloved figure in Britain and around the world. Her daughter Queen Elizabeth has followed a similar maxim, and it's worked very well for her too as she's become the most respected and longest-serving monarchs in history without ever giving a single interview. But the Queen's grandson Prince Harry sadly didn't get the discretion memo. Or if he did, he rejected it in favour of the new strategy: 'Always complain, always explain, and never stop yapping, whining, preaching and trashing your family.' Now, just when we assumed that the man who insisted he had to leave Britain to protect his privacy had exhausted every lucrative avenue of invading his own privacy, he's written his memoirs. But the Queen's grandson Prince Harry sadly didn't get the discretion memo. Or if he did, he rejected it in favour of the new strategy: 'Always...

    Princess Diana was not 'fully aware' of the 'machine' she was entering when she joined the Royal Family, a close friend has claimed.  Dr James Colthurst, then a medical student, first met Diana while she was on a skiing trip in Val Claret in France aged 17, when he was asked to assess her twisted ankle.  He went on to have a close friendship with Diana, who he described as being 'fun,' 'bright' and 'mischievous,' and was the go-between who ferried tapes of the late royal's confessions to author Andrew Morton for his blockbusting book of revelations, Diana: Her True Story. A few years after their meeting, a 20-year-old Diana tied the knot to Prince Charles and quickly became one of the most high profile women in the world.

In Diana, a 90-minute documentary which aired last night on ITV, journalist and friend of the late royal, Richard Kay revealed that the heart surgeon - who dated Diana from 1995 to 1997 - recently told him the late royal spoke to the BBC because she 'knew how the royal family would react'.  'We all know that Diana was tricked or fed things, but I learned something quite interesting recently and that came from Haznat Khan,' he explained.

"Meghan did Oprah and was very honest and transparent with her experiences in the royal family," he said.

    With the announcement of a national lockdown in March 2020, an extraordinary and unexpected opportunity opened up for the Queen and Prince Philip. At last, after more than seven decades of marriage, the Royal husband and wife, then aged 93 and 98 respectively, were able to experience something approaching the shared leisure enjoyed by other elderly couples. Temporarily released from many duties by the pandemic and the instruction to shield, they spent more continuous time together than they ever had, walking in the gardens of Windsor Castle, dining together and enjoying a peaceful final chapter in a long-lasting and successful marriage. As a fresh lockdown was announced in December, they were reunited again for what would be their last Christmas together, the Queen making her traditional festive broadcast from Windsor rather than Sandringham. But just months later, she would be facing the loss of her beloved husband only a few weeks short of his 100th birthday. As the country mourned, his death would, she said, leave a 'huge void' in her life. It is a void possibly even greater than...

Speaking to the Telegraph, the Russian royal, who lives alone at Provender, a 30-room 13th century home in Kent, said she rents out what was once the servants' wing on Airbnb as 'a necessity' so that it earns its keep.  Meanwhile she spoke of her admiration for the 'quite divine' Prince Philip, saying: 'I just think he’s wonderful because A, he’s very good-looking. B, he doesn’t take bullsh--. He says it how it is even if he gets into trouble.'  The Queen's 'rebellious' cousin Princess Olga Romanoff, 71, has said she would have been 'a lousy imperial royal' because she would 'rather shovel sh** than dress up' Olga, who takes the English spelling of her surname as opposed to the Russian 'Romanov' - was home-schooled before moving between...

    Prince Harry should have better prepared Meghan Markle for royal life but 'didn't want to' put her off by explaining how hard she would have to work, Prince Philip's biographer has claimed. The Duke, 36, and Duchess of Sussex, 39, are currently living in their $14 million Californian mansion with their son Archie, having stepped back from royal duty in March last year.  Robert Jobson, who penned the biography Prince Philip’s Century, has said Megxit is mostly Prince Harry’s fault for not properly preparing Meghan for life in the royal family, telling Page Six: 'He’s not the sharpest guy, but maybe he didn’t want to explain it. 'It’s hard work being a member of the royal family. People think it’s not but it is. It’s not glamorous and maybe she didn’t fancy that after at all.'

    American TV personality Oprah Winfrey recently revealed that she was just as stunned as the rest of the world by Meghan Markle’s bombshell claims during her wide-ranging interview that aired in March.

    Oprah Winfrey has opened up about the impact of her bombshell interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, insisting she had 'no idea' that it would reverberate the way it did — while admitting she was 'surprised' that the Duchess of Sussex 'went all the way there' with allegations of racism against the royal family.   The 67-year-old mogul discussed the secrecy around the interview with Nancy O'Dell this week, stressing how important it was that nothing leaked before it aired on CBS so that no clip could be 'exploited.' But while she confessed that she was 'surprised' by how forthcoming the couple was, she said it makes sense that the interview was so 'powerful' because Harry, 36, and Meghan, 39, 'wanted to be able to tell their story and tell it in such a way that allowed them to be as truthful as possible.'

    EXCLUSIVE: After saying farewell to Prince Philip, the British royal family has put their full focus on his widow Queen Elizabeth II, who turned 95 on Wednesday – but don’t expect the grieving monarch to step down anytime soon."The queen will never abdicate, full-stop," True Royalty TV co-founder Nick Bullen told Fox News. "She made a commitment not just to this country, to the Commonwealth and her family, but also to God. Faith is very important to her. And when she became queen, she made that commitment in front of God as well. So she will do this job until she is no longer able to do this job." While royal experts have insisted it is unlikely Elizabeth will ever abdicate given her lifelong commitment to public service, she has already started to turn over more responsibilities to her eldest son Prince Charles, 72, who is first in line to the throne. The process is likely to accelerate following Philip’s death. The Duke of Edinburgh passed away on April 9 at age 99. He was laid to rest on Saturday. Even as...

    The Queen told Meghan Markle she could carry on acting after joining the royal family if she wanted to, Princess Diana's biographer has claimed. Andrew Morton - who famously penned Princess Diana's blockbuster biography in 1992 - said Meghan and Harry were given the opportunity 'to go wherever they pleased'. The Queen told Meghan she could forge ahead with a Hollywood career - which had seen her most-famously star as paralegal Rachel Zane in drama Suits - if she did not want to 'embrace royal duties full time', Mr Morton said. But he feared neither the Duke nor Duchess of Sussex gave the options as much consideration as they should have done. In the couple's bombshell Oprah Winfrey interview last month, Prince Harry claimed the royal family suggested Meghan continue to act because 'there was not enough money to pay for her'. He said there were 'difficult conversations' about how the Sussexes would contribute to the Firm once they were married, adding: 'There was some real obvious signs before we even got married that this was going to be really hard.'  ...
