    On Tuesday, journalists on all three network morning shows joined liberal celebrities in rushing to defend Prince Harry and Meghan Markle against accusations of hypocrisy after the supposedly environmentally-conscious royal couple took two different trips on private jets within a week. Reporters on CBS, NBC, and ABC touted other wealthy elites like Elton John and Ellen DeGeneres scolding critics for daring to question the royals’ controversial travel habits. “Elton John coming to the defense of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. This after news broke about the royal couple’s recent vacation to Nice, France. Headlines focused on their use of a...

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex enjoyed a secret trip to Ibiza to celebrate Meghan's birthday. Meghan, who turned 38 on August 4, is thought to have flown to the island with Harry, 34, on a private jet in what would have been three-month-old Archie's first holiday. The royal couple and Archie stayed in a secluded villa away from prying eyes, and travelled with security personnel for the 'six-day trip'.

    When it comes to motherhood, former First Lady Michelle Obama has one piece of advice for Meghan Markle: “Savour it all.” Meghan, who welcomed son Archie Harrison in May, said she was left “somewhat speechless” when the questions she sent Obama to answer for the back page of British Vogue‘s September issue (which Meghan guest-edited!) were returned “as a thoughtful, reflective and beautifully curated narrative – a gentle reminder not of how but of why she has become such a globally respected public figure.” Meghan revealed that the two women discussed the project “over a casual lunch of chicken tacos...

    Pleasantries — specifically “good morning” — are banned, and commoners are forbidden from placing letters in the royal mailbox. “It’s extraordinary. We’ve never heard anything like it. Everyone who lives on the estate works for the royals and knows how to behave respectfully,” one resident scoffed. “We aren’t told how to behave around the Queen like this. She’s very happy for people to greet her.”

    Meghan Markle is reportedly miserable and she gave Prince Harry an ultimatum to choose between her and his family. The Duchess of Sussex allegedly convinced her husband to leave the royal family. “Meghan is so miserable that she can’t face being stuck in the UK for much longer,” a source told Life & Style magazine. “She wants to move to Southern Africa. And she effectively gave him an ultimatum: If they don’t relocate, she wants out. It’s her or his family at this point, and Harry’s chosen his wife.” TOP ARTICLES 1/3 Gigantic 853ft 'Potentially Hazardous' Asteroid Headed For Earth...

    Meghan Markle was branded 'childish' and a 'control freak' today after it emerged her security team warned tennis fans against taking pictures of her at Wimbledon - including one mystified VIP who had no idea the royal was in the crowd. The former Suits star, 37, made a surprise visit to Court 1 on Thursday to watch Serena Williams accompanied by her old friends Genevieve Hillis and Lindsay Roth, who could be among Archie's secret godparents. Sally Jones, 64, was seated in the same row as the Duchess of Sussex and during the match was ordered not to take photographs...

    Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, was a no-show at the Buckingham Palace banquet for President Trump’s state visit to England on Monday, after the president called the former American actress “nasty” in an interview with a British newspaper. Markle, who is married to Prince Harry, is on maternity leave after giving birth to their first child, Archie, earlier in May. Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, the wife of Prince William, was in attendance at the banquet as were Trump’s adult children. The American-born Markle also missed a royal luncheon at the palace with Trump and first lady Melania...

    Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has compared Donald Trump's language to that of 'a 20th century fascist' and accused him of 'shamelessly' interfering in the Conservative party leadership race. Ahead of the US President's three-day State visit to the UK, starting tomorrow, Khan also condemned the decision to roll-out the red carpet for the UK's closest ally. It is the latest instalment in a long-running feud between the multimillionaire and Tooting-born Labour Mayor that dates back to 2016. Trump failed to mention the London mayor in an interview with The Sun last week, ahead of his State visit, where he...
  • BBC broadcaster Danny Baker fired over tweet comparing royal baby to chimpanzee

    Broadcaster Danny Baker has been fired from his role at the BBC over a now-deleted tweet comparing Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's newborn son to a chimpanzee. The widely-circulated post showed an image of a couple holding hands with a chimpanzee wearing a hat and coat, alongside the caption: "Royal Baby leaves hospital". The BBC Radio 5 Live broadcaster was accused of mocking the Duchess of Sussex's African-American heritage, with Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, who was born on Monday and will be seventh in line to the throne, becoming the first bi-racial British-American royal. Following widespread criticism, Baker again took to...
  • Archie Harrison: The meaning behind the royal baby's name

    BBC ^ | May 2019 | Francesca Gillett
    Archie means "genuine", "bold" or "brave" - and is more popular in Britain than the US. It was originally a shortened form of Archibald but is now often used as a name on its own. And, rather fittingly, Harrison - a name which was originally used as a surname - means "son of Harry". Mountbatten-Windsor is the surname which was created in 1960, combining the surnames of the Queen and Prince Philip when they married. The double-barrelled name was a concession to the Duke of Edinburgh, who was said to have complained that his children would not bear his name....

    So, Meghan Markle, the American biracial wife of Prince Harry, did it. She managed to have their baby (a boy) on her own terms. Which is to say, at an undisclosed location — although we all know the young British royal couple has been holed up at their Windsor home with the fairy tale name of Frogmore Cottage, we don’t know where she actually gave birth — and on an undisclosed timetable. We all found out about the birth when Harry and Meghan announced it on Instagram. (Buckingham Palace announced it too.) Nor did Meghan submit to the postpartum photo...

    Meghan Markle received stern words from the Queen following a row over egg, a royal author has claimed. The Duchess of Sussex, 37, travelled to Windsor Castle ahead of her wedding to Prince Harry, 34, last May to test some of the food that was going to be served at the reception. Author Katie Nicholl told how the former actress had insisted on there being a 'macrobiotic alternative' for some of the Hollywood star guests who follow the diet which derives from Zen Buddhism. She told Yahoo's Royal Box: '[Meghan] got very upset when she felt that she could taste...

    “It’s funny, I’ve actually been joking the last few weeks. I had seen this documentary on Netflix about feminism, and one of the things they said during pregnancy was ‘I feel the embryonic kicking of feminism.’ I loved that, so boy or girl, whatever it is, we hope that that’s the case with our little bump,” the Duchess of Sussex said Friday at an International Women’s Day event. Her comment was in response to a question onstage when asked “how that bump” was treating her. The crowd responded with warm choruses of laughter. Markle joined a panel of high-profile female...

    “Meg is extremely faithful,” a longtime friend tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “We pray a lot together...She has had, and especially has now, a very close relationship with God.” Meghan, 37, was baptized into the Church of England in a secret ceremony last spring ahead of her wedding to Prince Harry. And the intimate service, which was a significant nod to Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth’s role as head of the Church of England, had special meaning for Meghan, as faith is a key pillar for her. “A deep sense of gratitude and humility has guided her,” the friend...
