Royal Family news: Queen 'plans to lawyer up' over 'constant attacks' amid concerns Harry's memoirs will breach privacy

THE Queen has reportedly ordered senior Palace aides to plan a legal fightback against Harry and Meghan – and declared “enough is enough.”

The monarchy’s legal team is consulting libel experts after a barrage of criticism from the US-based couple.

A well-placed source revealed the Queen, 95, has become “exasperated with repeated attacks”.

They said: “The feeling, coming right from the top, is that enough is enough. There is a limit to how much will be accepted and the Queen and Royal Family can only be pushed so far.

“They are getting lawyered up. Harry and Meghan will be made aware and know repeated attacks will not be tolerated.”

The Royal Family was rocked last month by Harry’s revelation he was writing a tell-all memoir to be released next year — the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

A legal warning to publishers Penguin Random House is now being considered.

    INSIDER CLAIM MEGHAN MARKLE ‘DIDN’T LISTEN’ TO CAMILLA’S ADVICE

    Meghan and Harry’s royal exit is still making headlines as “Finding Freedom”, the unauthorised biography by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand makes more shocking claims about the row.

    It is reported that Meghan felt isolated within The Firm from very early on, and Camilla Parker Bowles tried to offer some advice to the Duchess of Sussex.

    A source said: “She doesn’t want to see anyone struggling, and she is fond of Meghan.”

    A friend of the Duchess of Sussex also said:

    “Much like Meghan, Camilla had experienced a lot of negative press and hostility from courtiers due to her relationship with Charles when he was still married to Diana.

    “She was very sensitive to Meghan and provided her with support, advising her to ride out the storm and that it would all pass—but ultimately Meghan didn’t listen.”

    PRINCESS EUGENIE URGED TO ‘STAY RIGHT OUT OF’ MEGHAN MARKLE AND PRINCE HARRY’S ROYAL RIFT

    It’s believed that Princess Eugenie could act as a peacemaker between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the royals, but royal commentator Charles Rae has warned he’s is not sure if there is anything she could do to repair the rift.

    Charles said to the Express: “Best of luck to her. I mean, that’s a hell of a mountain she’s got to climb.

    “Eugenie gets on well with other members of the Royal Family.

    “I mean what could she possibly say to the Queen and other members of the Royal Family that would smooth that path.

    “This rift is not going to go away.

    “If I were poor old Eugenie I’d stay right out of it and just not try and do anything.

    “I’m not actually sure if there’s anything she could do.”

    QUEEN’S GUARD ARRESTED FOR ‘SEXUALLY ASSAULTING TWO NEW RECRUITS’ JUST YARDS FROM WINDSOR CASTLE

    The pair, on their second day in the Coldstream Guards, were allegedly abused with a sex toy yards from Windsor Castle.

    Army top brass confirmed a guardsman had been arrested and suspended and an investigation had begun.

    The unit, the oldest continuously serving regiment in the Army, is based at Victoria Barracks close to Windsor Castle, Berks.

    Part of the Household Division, its soldiers provide ceremonial guards across the royal palaces as well as frontline infantry troops.

    The incident comes just months after defence bosses disbanded an RAF unit in which an airman was allegedly sexually assaulted with a mortar tube in another twisted initiation ceremony.

    An Army source told The Sun: “The Army is under huge pressure to stamp this sort of behaviour out.

    “The RAF were swift and ruthless in dealing with this sort of behaviour and had the right response.

    “But the Coldstream Guards is the oldest regiment in the Army and you can’t just get rid of them overnight.”

    MEGHAN MARKLE & PRINCE HARRY’S RELATIONS WITH THE QUEEN ‘AS STRONG AS EVER’, OMID SCOBIE SAYS

    Their preferred reporter spoke about the couple’s strong connection with Her Majesty while being interviewed by Good Morning America.

    The Sussexes’ biography co-writer was asked: “What’s the latest on that relationship with the Queen?”

    Scobie replied from London: “I’m so glad you asked that because of course we did release some details from the book, this week.

    “I spoke to sources close to the couple, who spoke about their disappointment in the institution of the monarchy, and the sort of lack of accountability taken after some of the revelations that they made in the Oprah Winfrey interview.

    “Particularly when they came to the racism claims.

    “But when it comes to that relationship with the Queen, it is as strong as ever – they have nothing but love for her.”

    In an extract taken from the couple’s unauthorised biography, Finding Freedom, the Duke and Duchess were said to be “afraid of the consequences” of speaking out against the monarchy.

    It reads: “There were so many things they were unable to say [before].”

    While the biography was published last year, it was re-released this month.

    Meghan and Harry have made it clear the authors of the book do not speak for them.

    PRINCE GEORGE BEGS MEGHAN MARKLE TO ‘STOP NOW’ IN CUTTING HBO CARTOON THE PRINCE

    A new teaser clip for HBO cartoon The Prince has earthed. This time, the video sees Prince George tell Meghan to “stop now”.

    In the video, Harry says: “Hello all, sorry we’re late. Our flight was delayed – you know, JetBlue.”

    Catty George snaps back: “We don’t know. Gross.”

    Meghan tells the family: “It was Mint though,” before turning to Harry and saying: “Tell them we were in Mint.”

    Kate Middleton replies back instead, sarcastically saying: “They gave you a mint. How lovely for you. I have some gum in my purse if you’d like?”

    But Meghan tells her: “No, we were in mind. It’s like their business class. It’s really nice. They give you these cookies and…”

    Quickly George then cuts in and says: “Meghan, I’m begging you to stop now.”

    PICTURED: HARRY BOARDS PRIVATE JET FOR 750 MILE TRIP

    ECO-WARRIOR Prince Harry flew 750 miles to a polo game on a £45m private jet – with photos revealing the luxury 20-seater aircraft.

    The Duke landed in Santa Barbara after taking his millionaire pal’s luxury private jet home — just months after lecturing the world about climate change. 

    The woke royal, 36, boarded the 20-seater £45million plane from a polo match in Aspen, Colorado, to his 18,671-square-foot mega-mansion in Santa Barbara, California, on Thursday.

    He took the two-hour flight to rejoin his wife Meghan and their two children.

    KATE MIDDLETON TO MISS OUT ON TRADITIONAL ROYAL HONOUR ON HER 40TH BIRTHDAY

    It is yet unclear what celebrations Kate has in mind for her landmark birthday, or if she will keep it low-key like Meghan.

    While this year The Duchess of Cambridge had her birthday in the middle of lockdown on January 9, meaning she had to do something quiet, next year she will be missing out on one particular honour.

    This is that The Duchess will not hear the traditional chimes of Westminister Abbey when she celebrates her 40th birthday. This is due to changes rung in to cut costs.

    It is normal for the senior royals to hear the bells ringing at the Abbey on their birthdays, with Camilla Parker Bowles included among them.

    But the bells have not rung at the Abbey since April 2020 due to the pandemic.

    EXPLAINED: HOW DOES HBO’S THE PRINCE PORTRAY THE ROYAL FAMILY?

    The animated series is set from the prospective of 8-year-old Prince George, Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge’s eldest child, and the future heir to the British throne.

    Created by Gary Janetti, the show is based off of his meme page of the young Prince and pokes fun at the royals and mocks most of the family members.

    In the show, Prince George is portrayed as a sassy and effete royal commentator.

    The show has however been highly criticised.

    PRINCE HARRY’S POLO MATCH SHOWED ‘FUN SIDE’ FROM PAST

    The grinning Duke of Sussex was surrounded by pals including Argentine polo player and Sentebale ambassador Nacho Figueras during the match, which triggered the "fun side" from his past, according to a body language expert.

    Harry has often been vocal about negative triggers in his life but this polo match "appears to trigger his relaxed and happier side as he throws himself into the sport that he has always loved" according to Judi James.

    The body language expert told Fabulous: "This is Harry appearing in his own solo success story, scoring twice and helping to lift the trophy and clearly adoring the company of at least one friend from the old days."

    The dad-of-two, took to the field without his family cheering him on – with wife Meghan Markle and their kids Archie, two, and Lilibet, not seen on the sidelines.

    Historically, WAGS regularly show their support at such sporting events, including Harry's late mum Princess Diana who did so for Prince Charles, but Meghan was a "notable absence".

    INSIDE PRINCE PHILIP’S ‘HIGHLY PERSONAL’ RELATIONSHIP WITH PENNY KNATCHBULL

    The Countess Mountbatten of Burma — 32 years younger than the late Duke of Edinburgh, who died in April aged 99 — has been a trusted member of the Royal Family’s inner circle for years and bonded with Philip through their love of carriage driving.

    She was the only non-family member at Philip’s small, Covid-restricted funeral, except for his personal secretary.

    Indeed, she has been so much a part of royal life, household staff nicknamed her “And Also”, because whenever Philip listed guests who were to be invited to a royal do, he would end with “and also Penny”.

    When Philip was involved in a car accident near the Queen’s Norfolk retreat of Sandringham in January 2019, Her Majesty dispatched Penny to encourage the duke to surrender his driver’s licence.

    Ingrid Seward, author of biography Prince Philip Revealed: A Man Of His Century, said: “The Queen had enlisted the help of the Countess Mountbatten of Burma, who visited Philip and helped convince him to give up driving.”

    MEGHAN MARKLE’S BEST PAL JESSICA MULRONEY REIGNITES RIFT RUMOURS (CONTINUED…)

    To add further fuel to the fire, Jessica posted a cryptic Instagram caption just days before Meghan’s birthday on August 4, then swiftly deleted it.

    “I’ve spoken about mental illness for years,” she wrote. “It can be lonely having the world, friends distance from you and not even ask how you are. But thankfully, you find the things that truly matter.”

    Commenting on the post, a source said: “Those final words about not even asking how you are is like a reference to that interview Meghan gave to ITV anchor Tom Bradby, when she complained that no one in the Royal Family had asked how she was or ‘if I’m OK’.”

    MEGHAN MARKLE’S BEST PAL JESSICA MULRONEY REIGNITES RIFT RUMOURS BY NOT WISHING HER A HAPPY 40TH & DELETING CRYPTIC POST

    The move has reignited rumours about a rift between the two women, especially given Jessica, 41, regularly updates her 416,000 Instagram followers on everything from her daily workouts to what her kids are eating for dinner.

    A source close to Jessica told the Mail on Sunday: “Jess would post about the opening of an envelope, so the fact she’s the only one of Meghan’s close friends not to wish her a public happy birthday is definitely strange.

    “It is something which has certainly raised eyebrows. Yes, Jessica was always protective of her friendship with Meghan. But it was always something that was there, front and centre. You could tell how important it was to Jessica.”

    MEGHAN MARKLE REVEALS REPEATED ‘GRATUITOUS’ REQUEST IN SUITS WHICH CAUSED HER TO PUT HER FOOT DOWN

    Before she met Prince Harry, Meghan, 40, became known for her role as Rachel Zane, a sassy paralegal in the legal drama.

    Talking of the show in 2014, Meghan reportedly had a word with the show’s creator after scripts kept having her walking into scenes wearing nothing but a towel.

    Speaking at the One Young World conference in Dublin at the time, she said: “This season, every script seemed to begin with Rachel enters wearing a towel. And I said, no, not doing it anymore.

    “I called the creator and I said and I was like, it’s just gratuitous, we get it, we’ve already seen it once. So I think at a certain point you feel empowered enough to just say no.”

    Once a struggling actress and “hungry for work,” the TV star said “you’re willing to do things like that” while trying to make it as an actress.

    THE CROWN SET TO INFURIATE ROYALS BY RETELLING STORY OF PRINCE PHILIP’S ‘CLOSE FRIENDSHIP’ WITH PENNY KNATCHBULL

    This is a Sun Exclusive.

    The Queen’s husband, who passed away in April aged 99, was close to aristocrat Penny Brabourne, who will be played in the Netflix show by Natascha McElhone.

    ut the Duke of Edinburgh spent huge amounts of time with her during the Nineties – the decade covered by season five of the drama – despite the 32-year age gap.

    A TV insider said: “This is a relationship which naturally raised a few eyebrows and sparked quite a few whispers, but Philip and Penny maintained they were just friends.

    “The makers of The Crown believe it is a relationship worthy of exploring and casting a veteran actor like Natascha is a reflection of how high profile the role is.

    “But the highly personal relationship is unlikely to be welcomed as a storyline by Her Majesty or the rest of the Royal Family.”

    ECO-WARRIOR PRINCE HARRY FLEW 750 MILES FROM POLO GAME ON PAL’S £45M PRIVATE JET AS PICS SHOW LUXURY 20-SEATER AIRCRAFT

    The Duke landed in Santa Barbara after taking his millionaire pal’s luxury private jet home — just months after lecturing the world about climate change. 

    He took the two-hour flight to rejoin his wife Meghan and their two children.

    The £45million Gulfstream jet is understood to belong to one of Harry’s polo pals, US businessman Marc Ganzi.

    Last night, royal author Tom Quinn said: “This appears to be enormously hypocritical, given all his talk about climate change.

    “Harry seems to see himself as someone who guides the rest of the world and that his own behaviour isn’t relevant. It is a huge blind spot.”

    PEOPLE WILL TIRE OF HEARING MEGHAN AND HARRY’s ‘SAME OLD CRACKED BROKEN RECORD’ SAYS ROYAL AUTHOR

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s “appetite” for publicity will eventually be the couple’s downfall, a royal expert has warned.

    Writing in today’s Sunday Express, Royal author Margaret Holder says she believes Harry and Meghan’s longing for headlines could backfire on them.

    She wrote: “Perpetuating their victim status may deliver global publicity welcomed by the media giants who have commercial contracts with the Sussexes.

    “However, eventually people will tire of hearing the same old cracked record and the couple will have to reinvent themselves if they are to stay bankable in a rapidly changing market with many competitors.”

    “The Queen has shown admirable patience with her troubled grandson’s repeated provocations while trying to maintain the dignity of the institution of monarchy,” she added.

    OVER 50% OF BRITS AND AMERICANS THINK HARRY AND MEGHAN ‘SHOULD STAY OUT OF WORLD AFFAIRS’

    Over half of Brits and Americans believe it is time for the royal family to sit down and thrash out their differences – and that Meg and Harry should keep out of world affairs.

    In a new poll, people were asked the question, “Should Princes Harry, William and Charles meet face-to-face to try to resolve their issues?”, 72.9 percent in Britain said yes, with an even more substantial 77.6 percent agreeing in America.

    It comes after The Duke and Duchess were criticised heavily for their statement on Afghanistan when they said they felt “many layers of pain”.

    Responding to the question, “Do you think the Duke and Duchess of Sussex should stay out of publicly commenting on world affairs?”, 53.8 percent in the UK and 52.3 percent in the US agreed.

    The twin polls, created by OnePulse for Express.co.uk, put the same sets of questions to respondents in both countries.

    MEGHAN MARKLE & PRINCE HARRY’S DECISION TO NAME DAUGHTER LILIBET IS PROOF THEY’RE ‘CLOSE TO QUEEN’, SAYS PAL OMID SCOBIE

    PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle’s decision to name their child Lilibet shows how “close” they are to the Queen, their pal Omid Scobie believes.

    The Finding Freedom biographer insists the couple’s use of Her Majesty’s childhood nickname gives an “insight” into their relationship with the monarch.

    It comes after a row erupted over the use of Lilibet’s name, with Harry, 36, insisting he spoke to the Queen about using it beforehand. But a palace source told the BBC the Queen was “never asked” about its use.

    And an insider told the Mail on Sunday the conversation between Harry and the Queen was “a telling, not an asking”.

    Scobie told Good Morning America: “When it comes to that relationship with the Queen, it is as strong as ever. They have nothing but love for her. Of course, we saw them name their daughter after the Queen’s very nickname.

    “So that really gives us an insight into that close relationship.”

    CAMILLA ‘WON’T FORGIVE MEGHAN MARKLE FOR HURTING PRINCE CHARLES’ DURING MEGXIT, INSIDER CLAIMS

    CAMILLA “won’t forgive Meghan Markle for hurting Prince Charles” during Megxit, an insider has claimed.

    Prince Harry claimed his dad stopped taking his calls after Megxit and that he was financially cut off by the Royal Family last year.

    PRINCE HARRY ‘NOT FINANCIALLY CUT OFF’

    In a sweary podcast chat, Prince Harry described royal life as a mixture of The Truman Show film and being in a zoo.

    The royal also revealed he wanted to quit royal duty when he was in his twenties, saying: “I didn’t want this job.”

    The Duke opened up about his mental health struggles in a brutally frank, and profanity-laden, chat with US podcast host Dax Shepard.

    But it later emerged that Prince Harry got a “substantial” sum from the bank of dad after Megxit — despite his claims he was “cut off financially”. Charles’s annual report, released by Clarence House in June, shows he gave the Sussexes and Cambridges a share of £4.45million.

    Palace sources refused to reveal the exact amount given to Harry — which covered the first four months of their “transition period”. And the report said he will get no more handouts from his father.
