    Mary Robertson, an American businesswoman who lived in London in 1980, hired a young woman to be her nanny. She had no clue that her nanny would later be known as Princess Diana. Back in 2017, Inside Edition interviewed Mary Robertson about Lady Diana Spencer's time working for her and what she labeled as the late Princess' "happiest year of her life." At that point, the People's Princess made only $5 an hour taking care of Mary's toddler son, Patrick, and handling several other activities, including doing their laundry, picking up a bunch of toys and washing the dishes. One...

    Meghan Markle will not be attending Prince Philip's funeral alongside her husband, Prince Harry, who plans to attend. On Saturday, one day after the Duke of Edinburgh's death, Buckingham Palace officials announced a private funeral will be held at Windsor Castle on April 17. The palace said Philip took part in planning his funeral and the focus on family was in accordance with his wishes. The 99-year-old duke died at the age of 99.

    Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh and husband of Queen Elizabeth II, has died at age 99, the royal family announced Friday. Philip and the queen were married for more than 70 years, making him the longest-serving spouse of a reigning British monarch. He was the oldest-ever male member of the British royal family. Philip was born on the Greek island of Corfu on June 10, 1921, to Prince Andrew of Greece and Princess Alice of Battenberg.

    National Interest ^ | 3/14/2021 | Sumantra Maitra
    For the uninitiated, a thin-skinned D-lister celebrity gave an interview to her billionaire talk show host friend about how austere aristocratic codes made her feel suffocated. This resulted in another talk show host, Piers Morgan, complaining on live television that there was a distinct possibility that the aforementioned celeb and her husband were perhaps full of it. Morgan’s exact phrase was that he “didn’t believe a word” of what Meghan Markle said. That bizarrely led to Meghan Markle complaining to the overarching supervisory media watchdog in Britain, which then led, nolens volens, to Morgan being fired. Enter Osbourne. Out of...

    Meghan Markle's former TV father is not impressed with the bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey that aired on Sunday. The actor, who played Robert Zane on Suits, slammed the interview as being "insensitive" due to it being carried out during the ongoing pandemic. "Today, 3,000 people are going to die in America from Covid. A couple of hundred people are going to die, even this hour, in the U.K.," he told LBC Radio. "It was quite insensitive and offensive that we are all complicit in this sort of palace gossip in the midst of so much death. I think it...
  • Meghan Markle openly accuses the Royals of racism: The question is whether she's at all believable.

    I'm probably second to none in my dislike for Meghan Markle. There's something unattractive about a mature woman marrying into the British royal family with one of the world's most expensive weddings, hanging out with the queen, living in insane luxury...and then whining nonstop about the horror of her life. There's something even less appealing when that woman accuses the royal family of race-hatred. And the problem is that, when it comes to that left-wing diva, Meghan Markle, it's hard to believe most of what she says. After weeks of hype, CBS finally televised Meghan Markle's and Prince Harry's interview...

    CBS reportedly paid more than $7 million for the rights to air Oprah Winfrey’s highly anticipated tell-all interview with Prince Harry and Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle. The two-hour interview, set to air at 8 p.m. Sunday, cost the network a pretty penny — likely somewhere between $7 million and $9 million, the Wall Street Journal reported.

    Earlier this week, news broke that Prince Harry will lose his honorary military titles as his and Meghan Markle's royal exit becomes permanent. The decision, which was made the Queen and announced by Buckingham Palace, is thought to be a disappointment for Harry, who had reportedly been trying to work out a way to maintain his military titles after the royal exit. Royal insiders worry that if Prince William is given the titles, it will only put more strain on his and Harry's relationship. This week, Buckingham Palace announced that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will officially be removed from...

    Prince Harry today declared war on Silicon Valley by telling tech titans they should be motivated by 'well-being' and not just 'financial incentive' in a lengthy interview about social media where he blamed it for the US Capitol riot and the destruction of the rainforest - but says he and Meghan will rejoin it when it's 'right for us'. Harry was interviewed by Fast Company, a monthly business magazine, for an article published on Friday which is in Q&A format. It's unclear when or how it took place but he gives long, intense answers where he talks about the 'guiding...

    At a moment when Britain is disquieted by scandal about Prince Andrew, disgraced for his friendship with the pedophile Jeffrey Epstein; the ongoing drama of Megxit, the withdrawal of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from royal duties; and the rift between the two royal brothers, William and Harry, the British TV soap opera, ten episodes of The Crown, season 4, has appeared to provide alleged entertainment of the doings of the British Royal Family. Because it is lavishly produced, well written, carefully acted, and cleverly invented, it is easy to accept The Crown as an accurate representation of a twenty-year...
  • Prince Harry and Meghan Markle face backlash as they break royal protocol by intervening in US election to urge Americans to 'reject hate speech' and label November's vote the 'most important of our lifetime'

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle faced a backlash today for speaking out about the upcoming U.S. election despite the British royal family's strict political neutrality. The Duke of Sussex told voters to 'reject hate speech, misinformation and online negativity' while the Duchess called the presidential race the 'most important election of our lifetime' as the couple urged Americans to use their right to vote. Speaking in a Time 100 video message, apparently filmed from the couple's California home, Harry admitted he was not eligible to vote in the November 3 election - adding that he had never voted in the...

    On Wednesday, hundreds of years after revolutionaries made the case for the supremacy of the American system and decades after Hollywood began to beam its influence farther and wider than the British Empire ever did, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex swapped life in the British royal family for a multiyear deal with Netflix. The couple are writing a new chapter in the age-old American story of reinvention and self-determination by announcing that they are rejecting the British monarchy for the stuff of American dreams. They've decided they can have more power over their lives and influence over everyone else...

    Prince Charles has cut off his private funding support for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex after they secured a £75million Netflix deal and paid back £2.4million for Frogmore Cottage. 'They are 'very relieved and very pleased' to have been able to pay off the debt so quickly,' a source close to the couple told Vanity Fair's Katie Nicholl. 'This has been a pro-active step and something they wanted to do from the outset.

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have founded a yet-to-be-named production company and signed a multiyear deal with Netflix, which will pay them to make documentaries, docu-series, feature films, scripted shows and children’s programming — giving the couple a global platform six months after their dramatic decampment from the House of Windsor. In recent months, Harry and Meghan have quietly talked with Disney and Apple. Two executives involved in those discussions said representatives for the couple at one point were seeking a deal in the neighborhood of $100 million. Variety reported earlier this month that the couple had also met...

    An excerpt from Finding Freedom, a forthcoming book about the Sussexes from royal reporters Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, goes into detail about Harry and Meghan's choice to step back, laying out a play-by-play of how it all went down. And after the agreement for the couple's new lives had been all hashed out, Queen Elizabeth invited Harry to lunch at Windsor Castle, during which, according to Scobie and Durand's reporting, she assured him that she supported him and Meghan regardless, and that they could return to the fold whenever they wanted. "As they tucked into a roast lunch, the...

    Buckingham Palace launched its first ever gin on 13 July, and within just eight hours it sold out. The Royal Collection Trust, a department of the Royal Household, created the premium small-batch London dry gin from natural ingredients sourced in the grounds of the royal residence. The Buckingham Palace Gin is infused with 12 botanicals, including Hawthorn berries, as well as zesty lemons, verbena and mulberry leaves.
