EPHRAIM HARDCASTLE: King Charles radically resets his late mother’s concept of the ‘Family Firm’ sixteen weeks after his Coronation
Sixteen weeks after his Coronation, King Charles has radically reset his late mother’s concept of the ‘Family Firm’, now categorising them, according to a source, as Senior Royals, Working Royals, Non-Working Royals and Others.
The Others are, apparently, Andrew, Harry and Meghan – with Andrew getting preferential treatment over the Sussexes.
He was allowed to join Edward at the one year memorial service for the late Queen at St George’s Chapel in Windsor while Harry, on the same day, struggled to get permission to pay his respects at her tomb there.

Former England manager Glen Hoddle declined to explain to the Netflix Beckham documentary, launching tonight, why he blamed David for the team’s exit from the ’98 World Cup after being sent off for kicking an Argentine player.
Hoddle, the only interviewee approached who refused to take part, is still off the Beckhams’ Christmas card list.
Wife Victoria cannot bring herself to call him ‘a man’ while David’s mother Sandra says she remains ‘disgusted’ by him.
Beckham, regularly denied a knighthood since 2014 after devoting time to charities including UNICEF and helping with the London 2012 Olympics, still lives in hope of receiving the honour.

Hot on the heels of former BBC face Jon Sopel having to apologise to Nigel Farage for mocking the ex-Ukip leader’s complaint about having his bank account cancelled by Coutts, his colleague Emily Maitlis, pictured, is asked to follow suit.
She smugly tweeted the claim that watchdogs found Farage’s account hadn’t been closed because he was politically incorrect.
Farage fired back: ‘I was “exited” by Coutts because I did not “align with the values of the bank”. The… investigation last month did not look at my case. Please retract your mistruth, Emily.’
Is Michael Parkinson enjoying a celestial laugh at Helen Mirren’s awkward U-turn over his notorious reference to her sexy physicality?
Before he popped his clogs he did insist that he had no interest in burying the hatchet, saying: ‘There is no need to apologise, not at all. She didn’t want to do an interview and after about ten minutes I didn’t want to interview her.’
Film critic Kevin Maher queries Graham Linehan’s claim Harry Potter stars Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint were guilty of ‘arrogance, cowardice and ingratitude’ towards JK Rowling.
‘The fundamental crime of which these three thirty-somethings are guilty,’ he says, ‘is that they simply, positively, cannot act.’
