Meghan Markle latest news – Prince Harry will cause 'OUTRAGE' if he attends Oscars after Prince Philip memorial snub

March 27, 2022

PRINCE Harry could cause 'outrage' if he attends the Oscars after it was revealed he would not be attending Prince Philip's memorial service.

A royal commentator has claimed “there will be outrage” if Harry does attend the Oscars.

Appearing on Australian morning show Sunrise, Angela Mollard said: “There’s a lot of talk it’s going to go ahead but can you really turn up and stand on the stage at the Oscars and not turn up for your grandfather’s memorial.

“I’ve got a problem with that.

“You do all the glory and handshaking with the celebrities but your own family.”

The news comes as the petulant royal claimed he would feel “unsafe” after losing his personal security when he left for the US.

Senior aides revealed that Her Majesty was informed of his snub a quarter of an hour before his statement about Prince Philip’s service was issued.

It read: “The Duke will not be returning to the UK in late March, but hopes to visit his grandmother as soon as possible.”

    "I don't think they would be the right comparison."

    Meghan Markle’s friend blasts palace ‘diversity’

    Meghan Markle’s close friend Omid Scobie has tried to blame diversity in the Palace for pictures of the Cambridges greeting Jamaican fans in front of a fence.

    Scobie lashed out at The Firm for not ‘avoiding certain imagery’, as pictures of Kate Middleton and Prince William emerged showing young Jamaicans watching a football match from behind a fence.

    Meghan’s close friend took to Twitter to express his anger at the Cambridges’ staff, saying: “I do wonder what the hell palace organisers were thinking with some of yesterday’s photo moments.

    “The planning and recon that goes into every step of these engagements is next level, so how did no one think to avoid certain imagery?”

    The author, who co-wrote Finding Freedom, added on Twitter: “This is why diversity on a team matters.”

    The royal tour of the Caribbean could have been a real hit… for Harry and Meghan

    This is a comment piece by Tony Parsons

    WILLIAM and Kate’s awkward royal tour of the Caribbean could have been a roaring ­triumph . . . if Harry and Meg had done it instead.

    If only the Palace had just slapped some factor 50 on Harry’s bald spot and told Meghan she was about to play the role of a lifetime.

    That royal yacht has sailed, of course. Harry and Meghan will — disgracefully — not even attend Tuesday’s memorial service for Prince Philip at Westminster Abbey.

    Imagining them doing a gruelling meet-and-greet all over the Commonwealth is just a crazy dream.

    But seeing William and Kate looking uncomfortable in the Caribbean was a reminder of the historic opportunity that has been lost for ever.

    Meghan & Harry ‘perfect’ for Caribbean tour

    Meghan and Prince Harry would have been more successful than Kate and Prince William had they carried out their recent tour to Belize, Jamaica and The Bahamas, a royal commentator has claimed.

    Commentator and author Tony Parsons wrote in The Sun: “If only the Palace had just slapped some factor 50 on Harry’s bald spot and told Meghan she was about to play the role of a lifetime.

    “That royal yacht has sailed, of course.”

    Speaking about the potential of having the Duke and Duchess of Sussex touring the Caribbean he added: “Imagining them doing a gruelling meet-and-greet all over the Commonwealth is just a crazy dream.

    “But seeing William and Kate looking uncomfortable in the Caribbean was a reminder of the historic opportunity that has been lost for ever.

    “William and Kate did their very best. But the bitter truth is their Caribbean tour would have been a perfect gig for Harry and Meghan.

    “Woke yet glam, caring yet charismatic, their eyes shining with compassionate tears, Harry and Meghan would have been living, multi-racial proof the Royal Family are not some milky white leftover from ancient history.”

    Meghan to 'pull in big guns' for new podcast

    It has been claimed by a royal commentator that Meghan Markle will "pull in the big guns" for her new podcast, Archetypes.

    Russell Myers, royal editor at the Daily Mirror told Pod Save The Queen on Thursday that the Duchess will “pull in the big guns” for the podcast.

    He said: “This is going to be huge because she will pull in the big guns.

    Prince William beats Harry for 'most attractive' royal eyes

    Prince William, 39, and Prince Harry, 37, have topped the most attractive male celebrity lists for years. The two Princes’ eyes have been compared by eye experts at Lenstore.

    A spokesperson for Lenstore told Express.co.uk: “Prince William is revealed to have the third most attractive eyes among males in the public eye.

    “This is according to the UK public.

    “Nearly one in 10 (nine percent) of respondents in Lenstore’s survey found Prince William's eyes the most attractive.

    “This is out of the numerous options of influential personalities presented to them,” the expert claimed.

    “Prince William has bright blue eyes.

    “21 percent of respondents in Lenstore’s survey revealed they find blue eyes the most attractive.

    “So perhaps it’s not so surprising that Prince William’s eyes top the list for most attractive male celebrity eyes.

    “This is despite just 4 percent voting him as the most attractive male celebrity overall.

    “When asked what characteristics each set of eyes indicated to the respondent, Prince William's eyes correlated most with ‘humble’ (9.7 percent), ‘caring’ (11 percent) and also ‘sad’ (13.85 percent).”

    Oscars bosses were so keen for Harry & Meghan to present

    ACADEMY Awards bosses were so keen for Prince Harry and wife Meghan to present the gong for Best Picture that they approached the couple last year.

    Sources told how chiefs pulled out all the stops to make the offer attractive.

    A source said: “Netflix were incredibly keen for their two big-name signings to be involved with this year’s Oscars.

    "For the first time ever, streaming services, especially Netflix, have a chance of cleaning up and winning some big gongs.

    “What better endorsement than for Meghan to be up there on stage?

    "Quite a way to justify their £112million salary.

    “Meghan is a huge supporter of women, and championing them, so Best Actress was an obvious category for her.

    “Sadly, though, as soon as Kristen Stewart got the nod, she couldn’t possibly go on stage and risk handing over an award to the woman who played her husband’s late mother.

    "So that idea was scrapped.”

    'The brothers gave comfort to each other'

    Duncan Larcombe, Royal Author and former Royal Editor of The Sun, told Fabulous: said that little is known about how Harry marks the day now that he is a father and lives in the USA, where Mother’s Day takes place on the second Sunday of May.

    He commented: “Sources say the Duke of Sussex has already followed William’s style of sharing his mother’s memories with his kids. 

    “At least by focusing on their own children this year, William and Harry have something to distract them from the elephant in the room. 

    “Mother’s Day was always an occasion when the brothers gave comfort to each other – sadly one ‘family’ tradition that seems to have all but disappeared.”

    Mothers day holds 'extra significance'

    MOTHER'S Day holds 'extra significance' within the royal family as it 'is shrouded in sadness for William and Harry' following the death of Princess Diana.

    While the day is one of celebration, paying tribute to the likes of Kate and also the Queen, it can be a painful day for Prince William and Prince Harry.

    Duncan Larcombe, Royal Author and former Royal Editor of The Sun, told Fabulous: “It wasn’t until the aftermath of the Death of Princess Diana in 1997, that Mother’s Day took on an extra significance for the Royals. 

    “Since then, the fourth Sunday in the Christian festival of Lent – when Mother’s Day is marked in the UK – is shrouded in sadness for William and Harry. 

    “Both the boys have spoken about how difficult they find the day, which for years they would always dread. 

    “Prince Charles and the rest of the family were at pains to throw a ring of cotton wool around Diana’s children on the Mothering Sundays that followed her death.

    “But this changed when first William and then Harry had children of their own. 

    “Now the focus is on using the day as a chance to tell their children about the amazing grandmother they never met.”

    Queen still planning to attend Philip memorial service

    The Queen is still planning to attend a thanksgiving service for the life of the Duke of Edinburgh next week, it is understood.

    The Queen, 95, hopes to be able to attend the Westminster Abbey service commemorating her late husband on Tuesday, but a final confirmation is likely to be given on the day.

    Buckingham Palace has said the event will pay tribute to Philip's "dedication to family, Nation and Commonwealth", with the royal family joined by royals from overseas.

    On Wednesday the Queen spent the day viewing luxury pieces by the British craftwork firm Halcyon Days at Windsor Castle.

    She was due to visit the factory of the company in 2020 to mark its own Platinum Jubilee of 70 years. However, the plans were disrupted by the pandemic and with the Queen now carrying out more engagements from her Windsor residence, the company brought their works to her instead.

    The Queen was photographed holding a walking stick but appeared in good spirits, smiling delightedly as she was shown some intricately painted teapots and other items laid out in the White Drawing Room of the castle.

    Charles & Camilla finished Ireland tour with Rock of Cashel visit

    Charles said it was "particularly apt" to finish his Irish tour at the rock, and quoted his mother, who he said had "described her hope that we might live in harmony – 'close, as good neighbours should be'".

    He added: "It is a thought which my wife and I have consciously tried to put into action, visiting this wonderfully atmospheric land every year since 2015, interrupted only by the pandemic."

    Charles has often spoken of his hope to visit every county in his lifetime.

    He and Camilla posed in front of the stone cathedral ruins at Cashel, before being given a short history of the site, enjoying a performance by Cashel Community School choir and signing the guest book.

    The couple were welcomed by the sound of Welsh-Irish trumpets, similar to those used historically to celebrate the inauguration of kings in ceremonies dating back to the Bronze Age.

    Prince William Friday said the Royal Family would support Bahama's decisions about its future.

    The future king made the comments during the third stop of a Caribbean tour that has been met with protests in a region increasingly weighing its future relations with the UK's monarchy.

    "And with Jamaica celebrating 60 years of independence this year, and Belize celebrating 40 years of independence last year, I want to say this: we support with pride and respect your decisions about your future," William said.

    "Relationships evolve. Friendship endures."

    Meghan and Harry  blasted by ex-BBC journalist

    Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been blasted by ex-BBC journalist John Sergeant, when he appeared on GB News.

    John Sergeant, a former chief political correspondent at the BBC, slammed the Sussexes as “just awful” and went on to argue “we should never hear” from the couple again. 

    He said: “I think we should never hear from them again.

    “I would just like to wake up and for someone to say, who do you mean there.

    “It’s just awful, the pointless damage they’ve done.

    “It’s one thing to say they were treated unfairly, you know they weren’t.” 

    However, Twitter users were divided at Mr Sergeant’s statement.

    One person wrote: “Spot on John Sergeant. Oh to never hear from them again.”

    A second added: “All UK media should ban any interaction with them or their PR reps the end.”

    While a third disagreed with what was said, saying: “You seem to care about them an awful lot for not wanting to hear about them.”

    Parts of Harry legal claim documents to remain secret

    A High Court Judge ruled on Thursday afternoon that parts of some documents in Prince Harry’s claim against the Home Office will remain secret.

    At a preliminary hearing last month, the High Court in London heard an application by both Prince Harry and the Home Office for some parts of the court documents in the case to be kept private.

    The court was told that the Duke and Home Office agreed on what should be redacted from witness evidence.

    In a judgement on Thursday, Mr Justice Swift said the bid to redact documents was allowed.

    Philip would be ‘angry’ that Harry is skipping memorial

    A royal expert has claimed that Prince Philip would be extremely angry that Prince Harry has decided to skip his memorial service.

    Ingrid Seward, author of Prince Philip Revealed, A man of his Century, believes that the Queen knows her late husband would “expect” her to be of attendance.

    The expert said that: “Even someone as unassuming as the Queen might have expected some better luck during the culmination of her 70-year reign.

    “Instead, she has had nothing but trouble. Her once strong physique is decidedly frail after hurting her back in October 2021. This year she has had to cancel all her public appearances including the Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey because in her own words, “I can’t move!”.

    “She is determined to be at her late husband’s memorial on Tuesday however hard it is for her to get there.”

    Seward added: “She knows he would expect it as much as she knows he would be angry and disappointed Prince Harry has chosen not to go.”

    “It’s the most hateful, mean spirited unforgivable thing anyone can do.

    “I send that right out to Harry, if you think you’re doing something good, You’re crazy.
