    Prince Charles is the member of the royal family who raised questions about the likely color of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s babies’ skin, the author of a new book about the royals which addresses controversy has exclusively told The Daily Beast. Christopher Andersen, who has been covering the royal family for 50 years, first at Time magazine and then as a senior editor running People magazine’s royals coverage in the ’70’s and 80’s also exclusively told The Daily Beast that relations between the royals are now so poor that William “isn’t returning Harry’s calls” and Charles and Harry “haven’t spoken since Prince Philip's funeral.” Andersen told The Daily Beast: “My sources are rock-solid and they helped me unravel the mystery of which royal Harry and Meghan were talking about when they said a member of the family had brought up the issue of how light or dark their children might turn out to be and that there were concerns about what that would mean for the monarchy. “I was able to trace the origins of the controversy back...
    Queen Elizabeth II’s decision to allegedly remove a photo of her grandson Prince Harry and his new family made the Duke of Sussex feel he was "being erased from the family." The allegation was made by bestselling author Christopher Andersen in his new book being released on Tuesday titled "Brothers and Wives: Inside the Private Lives of William, Kate, Harry, and Meghan." In it, Andersen quoted a source who claimed the reigning British monarch had a palace aide move a portrait of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and their son Archie, who was eight months at the time, off-camera before she recorded her 2019 holiday broadcast, Page Six reported on Monday. The insider alleged that the 95-year-old "looked over the tables where the photographs she had so lovingly selected were arranged."

    Prince Charles on Sunday called in lawyers to fight claims in a new book that he’s the “royal racist” — the royal family member who angered Prince Harry and Meghan Markle by questioning the skin color of their future children. A spokesperson for the future king also slammed the claims, telling the U.K. tabloid “The Sun”: “This is fiction and not worth further comment.” The Sun reported that the Prince of Wales had called in lawyers to address the claims. The claims come in the new book, “Brothers And Wives: Inside the Private Lives of William, Kate, Harry and Meghan,” the Page Six column in the New York Post first reported. Harry and Meghan, who is biracial, set off speculation about the identity of a racist family member during their March 7 interview with Oprah Winfrey. Meghan told Winfrey there were “concerns and conversations about how dark (her and Harry’s son, Archie’s) skin might be when he was born … Those were conversations the family had with Harry.” According to Page Six, author Christopher Andersen stops short of identifying future-king...
    LAWYERS for the royals are reportedly on standby to take action against the BBC for "unfounded" claims made in a controversial doc. It's claimed the family are mulling their next steps following a screening of The Princes and The Press, with legal reps set to watch the second instalment tonight. 3Royal lawyers will be watching the second part of BBC doc The Princes and The Press tonight after 'unfounded' claims were last week airedCredit: Getty 3Prince William is understood to have been upset over allegations he briefed against his brotherCredit: Mega They'll be deciding if the broadcaster flouted rules regarding accuracy and impartiality after earlier warning they'd not been given a fair right of reply, the Daily Mail reports.

    A new book about the British royals claims that Prince Charles was the one to infamously speculate about the complexion of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s firstborn son, Archie.  In March of 2020, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex sat down for a tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey in which they made many shocking allegations about their time in the royal family. However, one of the most provocative was when Markle said that a member of the royal family had "concerns" about the color of her child’s skin before he was born. At the time, Harry made sure to note that it was not Queen Elizabeth II nor Prince Philip, leaving the door open to speculation.  In a new book titled by author Christopher Andersen titled, "Brothers And Wives: Inside The Private Lives of William, Kate, Harry and Meghan," a source close to the royal family claims that Philip wondered aloud about the child’s complexion during an innocent conversation in 2017 that took place shortly after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex got engaged.  "I wonder what the children will...
    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.

    The Queen has suffered another 'annus horribilis' in 2021, according to a new documentary, but experts believe her struggles over the last year could actually strengthen the monarchy. The monarch, 95, has been blighted with tragedies over the last 12 months - with husband Prince Philip dying in April, and her son Prince Andrews facing questions over his controversial friendship with Jeffrey Epstein, who died in prison in 2019, while awaiting trial for sex trafficking charges. Along with health complications, the royal has also faced family fallouts, with grandson Prince Harry moving to Montecito, California, with his wife Meghan Markle, and the reportedly fraught relationship between the prince and his older brother William. Charles Anson, the Queen's press secretary between 1990 and 1997, made the claims in new documentary 2021: The Queen's Horrible Year, which aired last night on Channel 5.    The Queen, pictured with a walking stick here in October 2021 attending a Service of Thanksgiving to mark the Centenary of the Royal British Legion at Westminster Abbey in London, has had a tough 2021 Despite a fraught year, multiple...
    The Queen has been taking 'comfort' from her work despite being health setbacks amid the 'most difficult time of her reign', a royal expert has claimed. 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.  Speaking to OK! Vanity Fair's royal editor Katie Nicholl said the monarch is still 'enjoying' her job and it 'keeps her young'.

    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.

    When Meghan Markle sat down with her friend Ellen DeGeneres for a remarkably bland interview that was aired Thursday afternoon, she must have known this would be a very different encounter to the shocking and astonishing interview she gave to Oprah Winfrey. The absence of a single question stirring up the gory details of her vexatious relationship with her allegedly racist British in-laws suggest that she was keen to bury the idea that she is nothing more than an embittered ex-royal with an axe to grind. Instead, here was Meghan redefining herself as a happy-go-lucky soccer mom, a sentimental wife, a successful woman—a published author, no less—but one not above punking herself and equally ready to use the happy accident of her connections and status to try and deliver meaningful change for other American parents. On the other side of the planet, as the luck of scheduling would have it, her former nemesis, Kate Middleton, was offering a masterclass in the life Meghan left behind, appearing at London’s Royal Variety Show with perfect new hairdo.

    Prince Albert of Monaco's sisters Princess Caroline of Hanover and Princess Stephanie have rallied around to support his children Jacques and Gabriella in wife Princess Charlene's absence - after admitting they had 'suffered.'  The royal, 63, revealed on Friday that his wife Charlene, 43, has been admitted to a 'treatment facility' where she will remain for 'at least several' weeks after it became 'evident she was unwell' within hours of her return to Monaco following 10 months in South Africa.  Albert, who earlier this year said his wife was suffering from a sinus infection, did not reveal details of her illness but ruled out cancer and Covid. He hinted at mental health struggles, saying she 'was overwhelmed and couldn't face official duties, life in general or even family life' and is suffering from 'exhaustion, both emotional and physical'.    Discussing the impact their mother's absence has had on the children, the Monaco royal spoke to French news outlet Monaco Matin and admitted that they had 'suffered', but that that they had 'a family environment that made sure they weren't lacking in affection'.   But it seems like they're...
    Meghan Markle's father has called for the Duchess of Sussex to be stripped of her royal title and said she has 'insulted' the royal family following her surprise appearance on the Ellen show.  Thomas Markle, 77, who lives 70 miles away from the Sussexes mansion, was left feeling 'embarrassed' after watching his daughter earlier this week in the former actress' first major TV interview since her notorious Oprah tell-all alongside Prince Harry.

    Although the royal family has publicly advocated for the protection of wildlife, it is no secret that trophy hunting is deeply ingrained in the royal family’s past and has been their long-time twisted and cruel tradition. While trophy hunting is not as illegal as poaching, there is still a lot of controversy around the topic. Some people may argue that trophy hunting contributes to conservation efforts, but the truth is that many animal species have become at risk for extinction, and the overall idea is counterproductive to conservation efforts. Not only is trophy hunting inhumane and cruel, but it harms the environment as well. On average, more than 125,000 animals are killed each year for trophies. “Reports found that between 2005 and 2014, more than 1.26 million wildlife trophies were imported to the U.S. alone.” Many times, the animals targeted for trophies are at risk of being endangered, or already are. For example, lion populations have been shockingly reduced by trophy hunting. When these keystone species, which other species in an ecosystem largely depend on are removed, it can send...
    APPARENTLY, the Queen weighs her guests before and after the royal lunch on Christmas Day. CAN YOU IMAGINE? 2The Queen apparently weighs her festive guests pre and post their Christmas lunch feastCredit: AFP The practice dates back to the early 1900s. King Edward VII would make his festive visitors stand on the scales to make sure they had been suitably wined and dined. As someone who treats Christmas Day-eating like a sport, who merrily polishes off the runt of the Celebrations tin (Bounties), and who was once caught on camera stooping to eat a sprout off the floor, the notion of discovering that I have put on 6lb in six hours is nothing short of monstrous. As if Christmas at the Queen's Norfolk estate Sandringham didn't sound daunting enough, there's also a VERY odd tradition every member of the Royal Family has to follow. In 2018, royal expert Ingrid Seward Ingrid told Grazia that The Queen asks each of her guests - including Kate Middleton and Prince William - to "weigh themselves" when they arrive using a set of antique scales....
    Prince William ‘will be enraged after The Crown filmed Princess Diana revenge dress scene only 800 yards from his Kensington Palace bedroom’, sources have claimed. The Netflix series recreated the evening Princess Diana, played by Elizabeth Debicki, stepped out in an off the shoulder, tight black dress in a break with royal protocol after Prince Charles admitted to adultery on television.  The scene was filmed in the same spot in Kensington Gardens that Diana arrived at a dinner at the Serpentine Gallery in 1994 - a  position that can almost be viewed from Prince William's bedroom and is only 800 yards away, the Sun reported.   Industry insiders have claimed William will be 'enraged' by the decision. 'They could have chosen any location to recreate the scene, but they opted to select a spot which can almost be viewed by William from his bedroom window.'          The high-profile fifth series of The Crown is set to feature controversial issues such as the divorce of Prince Charles and Princess Diana, the fallout from Diana's death and and entire episode dedicated to Martin Bashir's 1995...

    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...

    In what may be an official warning from Queen Elizabeth, “senior” Buckingham Palace courtiers have expressed “unease,” saying it’s “outrageous” for Meghan Markle to use her Duchess of Sussex title to lobby U.S. lawmakers on American policy, including Democrats’ efforts to enact paid family leave. The courtiers have told the Times UK that the U.S.-born Meghan, who gained the title by marrying Prince Harry,  is “using her title out of context” for political lobbying in the United States. Buckingham Palace continues to insist that the royal family should have “no say in American politics,” the Times reported. Constitutionally, members of the royal family are obliged to be “above politics” and to stay  politically neutral, the Times added. A senior palace aide told the Times: “As a member of the royal family, if you use the title, it means you steer clear of those kinds of things. Otherwise, you’re using the title out of context.” Another courtier said that Meghan’s use of the tile is “outrageous.” The former TV actress invoked the title when cold-calling Republican senators Susan Collins and Shelley...

    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...

    While Brits enjoy an extra hour in bed this weekend, royal staff have spent hours turning back the 1,500 timepieces inside Her Majesty’s official residences.  The clock change, which falls on the last Sunday of October, means that at 2am yesterday the time in the UK went back to 1am as Greenwich Mean Time replaced British Summer Time. Reminding Brits of the clock change, the Royal Family offered an insight into the numerous timepieces inside Windsor Castle, Berkshire, where Her Majesty is currently recovering after a stay in hospital, on their official Instagram page.

    Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will live to regret their 'poisonous choice' of cutting people out of their lives, a royal author has claimed.  Commentator Tom Bower, who is currently working on a biography of Meghan, 40, told Closer magazine the 'stubborn' mother-of-two will regret cutting ties with her father Thomas Markle, 77, and moving her husband and two children away from the royal family to Montecito, California.  He said The Duke, 37, and Duchess of Sussex are growing increasingly isolated in America, and that it is 'sad' for them both, as well as for their children Archie, two and Lilibet, who was born in June.  Bower warned that the couple's wish to control their narrative will do more harm than good and that their children risk growing up without a family around them.  This comes after Thomas Markle Senior said on ITV this week that his daughter had 'changed' after meeting Prince Harry in 2017.  Commentator Tom Bower, who is currently working on a biography of Meghan, 40, told Closer magazine the 'stubborn' mother-of-two would regret cutting ties with...
    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...
    Meghan Markle gave Democrats her order for policy reform Thursday in an open letter that included a shoutout to struggling restaurant chain Sizzler. The Duchess of Sussex penned the letter to Democratic leaders supporting paid parental leave for all U.S. citizens, as President Joe Biden's proposed child tax credits are under threat of being cut from his social welfare spending package. In the piece, the duchess describes her upbringing as a struggle against poverty, despite her private schooling education and rearing in a family headed by an award-winning lighting director and photographer. "I grew up on the $4.99 salad bar at Sizzler — it may have cost less back then (to be honest, I can’t remember) — but what I do remember was the feeling: I knew how hard my parents worked to afford this because even at five bucks, eating out was something special, and I felt lucky," the Montecito-based celebrity said about her childhood in the letter addressed to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.

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...
